Barnabee, Karl cV Mac Donald have not
been content simply with finding merit

usual care in the presentation of their

and good tAste could provide has been
found in their productions, and this

grand opera standard in engaging a
double company of principal singers so
that the important rolea may always be

The Bostonianß have found it necessary

no reluctance on the part of the public
to meet these figures. Messrs. Barnabee,
Karl and MncPnneld frankly state that
it ia impossible to maintain the superi

the house and made their presence
known by singing the chorus of the

Mr. and Mrs. Llewellyn were surprised
when they flung wide open the door,
would be putting it mildly. But, al
though completely taken off their guard,
their hospitable nature quickly asserted
itself, and ail were bidden to enter.
Every one was soon made to feel thor
oughly at ease and'at home. When all
were assembled in the spacious parlors,
Mr. J. Mills Davies assumed charge of
the gathering, which for a short time
was resolved into an informal literary
meeting. He v. D. Hughes gave a short
address complimentary to the host
and hostess; Mr. J. Mills Davies
followed with a few well-chosen words
appropriate to the occasion. An original
poem dedicated to Mr. and Mrs. Llewel

while all who were called upon res
ponded with song or recitation. Several
selections were rendered by Mr. and

then served, followed by an enjoyable
time spent in social converse. Before
