V large audience greeted Harry Hob-
bison's troupe of burnt cork artist, on
their llrst appearance at the Athcneum
last night, and none, wo venture to say,
found room for censure, the entertain
ment throughout being excellent. The
llrst part of the-programme was opened
witli an overture by the company entitled,
La Fllle dtt Madame Ango," followed
by "Comlo Hefraln" by Hceney, and
songs by Murphy, Ad.uns, Robinson and
Sadler, all of which were equally good.
The second part of the programme was
entered upon with a silver statue clog
dance, by Thomas and Hceney, who are
tlrst-class, Murphy's "Hanunali on a
irk," was done Immensely. He Is a
real plantation negro, and was loudly ap
plauded. Green and Sadler, In their
songs and dances are goon, nnd iloinn
son lu his "Musical Melange" Is really
wonderful. "Kun, Nigger, ltun," amused
the audience greatly. Thomas nnd
Hceney then performed their album of
songs and dances in a creditable style.
Hoblnson' ''Komikalltles" brought down
the house, as did Murphy Inliisclinmplon
bono solo, The Dutch specialties, of
Chat'llu Adams were very acceptable,
The evening's fun was brought to n close
with the laughable sketch of "In nnd
Out," which fairly convulsed tho au
dience. To-night there will be on entire
change of programme, and those who
wish to get seats should secure them ear

was afraid to buv an annle. for fear 1
would "draw" something, for the whole

envelopes containing a cake of soap, and
