The cream of commencement is
the Senior Play, which will be given
on the evening of May 22nd, at the
Stanford Opera House, by the Senior
Class. It promises to be the enjoy
able event of the commencement
season. The characters have been
well selected and play their parts ad
mirably. The play, a 3-act farce
comedv, is not of the sentimental
kind, but is full of life, philosophy
and wit. Ferdinand Matheny, as
Martin Henry, is supposed to be the
h:ziest man in the country and he
does the part justice and his speeihcs
contain some very witty, as well as
true savings. Miss Belle Russell, as
Miss Abigail Parsons, most striking
ly plays the part of a very original
old maid. The other characters are
iust as suited for their parts, but
they do not have quite the s-ime
amount of originality about tlum.
