Last night Miss Adelaide Randall
and Opera Company appeared at tbe
Memphis Theater in J he Bridal Trap,
sn 'adaptation from Audran's latest
comic opera. The plot ia smuMng,
somewhat absurd, tnd a li tie rUky in
aurrouodinns and dialogue. Ia brief,
the plot is the atoryof a Fremh noble
man, who, from cluldhood, his been
in love with a village maiden,
"Rosette," Miss Adelaide Randall.
When he returns, after five years' ab
sence, be d wires to wed her, bat this
is prevented by his aunt, who, by a
series of strange devices, gets hnr to
marry a country bumpkin, "Orivolin,"
by givicc her and Mm a flourishing
inn at Orleans. The nobleman and
tbe village girl, now "Mme. Orlvolin,"
meet again, and it is davalooed that
tbe mtrriajte with "Orivolin" wat a
meek one, and tbey bad ever occupied
separate anattmen's at tbe inn, "Toe
Crowinn Hun." Tfie count carries
off "Rosettt" and marries her while
the bouikin hushand ktepa the Ion,
which he lores much better tbau Ms
wife. The result is happiness a'l
around, and, as Shakespeare says, "All
is well that ends well." This plot is
served up with pleioing music and
pretty solo', duets, trior, qoartettes
and coorrjses. The company is not a
ttrong one, either musically cr dra
matically, but they succeed in amus
ing and creating a favorable impres
sion. The audience enjoyed the pre
sentation and was quite lioeral in ap
plause. Adelaide Randall sints nicely,
is a pleasing actres and was fainy
well supported. The cast was as

What the Jolly Old Soul Hat
To Say To Memphis. .
S&" There is nothing in either An-'
oient or Modern History to prort
that Kries Kringle ever had a wife,
and therefore, as he is neither dead,
nor never was married, it is impossi.
ble for him to have a widow.
Bat it is pofsible, and it is Uua
that the Misfit Clothino Par
LOR8, 262 Seeond street, are making
special CHRISTMAS OFFERS ia
fine Suits, Tants and Overcoats.
Do You Want An Overcoat ?
Every one is anxious to gave a
much as possible when buying. The)
Overooats you get at the Hum
Clothing Pablors are cheap, be
cause they are not only low in price,
bnt also high in quality.
OVERCOATS for the man with but
a few dollars.
OVERCOATS for the men wh
wants fine drets.
OVERCOATS for everybody and at
DO YOU WANT A SUIT?
Yon want a good Christmas Pres
ent for yourself. You want a Real
Nice Suit, and you don't want to pay
ahighprioe for it. Well, the Mis
fit Parlous can accommodate you.
We have high quality Suits at low
prices, and magnificent and costl
Suite which we are soiling at lest
