Frequent notice has appeared In the
Northern papers lately of the fact that a
well-known young society woman, Mrs.
Anna Pendleton Tell, Is about to open a
millinery shop in New York. Mrs. Tell is
a gniceful joung matron of one of the old
c-st families in the North, and her unfor
tunate marriage has thrown her on her
own resources for the support of herself
and two children.

that genUewomeu do not more frequently
embark In enterprises of this tort. In

HER Airr AND HIS SKILL.
Miss Ada Reban has evidently arranged
her plays In tbe order ot tbelr excellence
and popularity. It was expected that the
scenic splendors ot "A Midsummer Night's
Dream" would attract a large company to
Lafayette Square Opera House last even
ing, but tbe result exceeded the anti"lpa
Uon. At a very few minutes after the rise of
the curtain there was standing room only.
Tbe audience was composed ot the upper ten
of social life very largely, among them being
many ot tbe diplomatic corps and attaches
It was, of course, understood that the
play itself would be admirably done and

put on, but few were prepared for the
beauty of a great deal of the scenery as, Tor
Instance, tbe court-room of Theseus, the
wood In which Nick Bottom was "trans
lated." and especially the exquisite spec
tacular charm of Tllanla's bower. This
last was about the most accurate and de
ceptive in detail that could be desired.
Its realism was decidedly striking. As
to the play within the play In the firth act
It was immensely funny. It made the audi
ence roar nmcb louder lhan even Snug the
Joiner In his capacity ot lion.
All In all It was a grand production nt
oneof Shakespeare's bestrcading and most
difficult ot representation-plays.
"A Midsummer Night's Dream" will be
repeated at tho matinee to-day, when it
win again fill the bouse to overflowing.
Miss Kenan's engagement win close to
night with "Tho Taming of tbe Shrew."
