"What Tlie Press Says.
We unhesitatingly pronounce the
Huntley Company one of the best, if not
the very best Dramatic Companies ever
n this "city, Each member- of the troupe
possesses more than ordinary ability,
while the three stars Miss Florence Kennedy,
and Messrs. J. H. Huntley and
John "D. Blaisdell, are artists of an order
rarely seen in the smaller towns. In
their opening play, "Divorced," they
were simply grand, and 'helcT their audience
as if spell-bound. Miss Kennedy's
portrayal of the wronged though loving
wife, Miss Ada Array's conception of
the cold-hearted demon, who wrecked
her own life and that of two others, in
her love of money and Miss Cecl Cotton's
Sallie Todtl, were pictures from life that
were drawn with remarkable correctness,
while the Frank Farraday of Mr. Huntley,
the David Paulding of Mr. Blaisdell,
the M. T. Mnggs of Mr. George Ober, the
uncle Dorwent of Mr. R. Ransom, and
the Joe Plummer ol Mr. A. Palmer,
could scarcely have been improved upon.
It was a beautiful pay, most attractively
presented, the ladies appearing in rich
and costly costumes. We have not the
space at this late hour to write as much
as we would like of the play last night,
"Woman's Devotion." Suffice it tcx say
it was fully up to, the high character of
the first performance, and that it elicited
the warmest applause. It is a pleasure to
have such a company visit us, and wo
hope they will favor us again before yery
