RUDOLPHI & WALLACE,
333 Main street.
This popular comedy was presented
at the Academy of Music last night to
a well pleased audience*,- The-.*? play
abounds In Interesting; situations and
striking climaxes; Its action is rapid
and Its dialogue bright, with happy
blending of the serious and comic. ItB
plot Is novel, with sufficient Interesting
and dramatic opportunities to Interest
as well as amuse.
The company is well balanced and is
composed of competent people.
"THE MYSTERIOUS MR. BUNGLE."
To-nlght'3 offering at the Academy of
Music wll be "The Mysterious Air. Bu?
gle," which had Its original production
at the New York Lyceum, and on
which occasion a critic enthusiastically
"If you havfe anything on yout mind,
take it oft when you go to the Lyceum
Theatre to see "The Mysterious Mr. Bu?
gle." Otherwise you are pretty sure to
lose It during the evening, which would
be all right only in case of its being
something you- want to forget. Mrs.
Madeleine Lucette Ryley calls her lat?
est offering "a new farce," and the ad?
jective Is well applied. To be sure, a
Jealous lover is not a novelty upon the
stnge, or elsewhere, but Mrs. Ryley has
treated him with new effects, and has
made him one of a central group in a
series of fresh, laugh-provoking and
highly ingenious situations." There
will be two performances to-morrow?
matinee and evening.
The appearance of this gifted actor
at the Academy of Music Friday and
Saturday, and Saturday matinee, will
doubtless cause the Academy to be fill?
ed with fashionable audiences at both
these performances. Mr. Warde's abil?
ity as a star Is too well known and ap?
preciated in tills city to require any ex
patlatlon, while the play of "The Lion's
Mouth," which will be given Friday
evening, on account of its interest and
beauty of scenery, will always be high?
ly entertaining. "Romeo and Juliet"
will be the bill for Saturday afternoon,
and "Vlrglnius" for Saturday night.
Seats now on sale.
AT THE AUDITORIUM.
A strong bill is being presented this
week at the above theatre. The caste
is exceptionally good throughout, most
notably Miss Trixy, of New Y'ork, In a
series of living pictures. Her represen?
tation of "Forsaken," "In Captivity,"
"At Prayer," "The Dying Hero" and
other portrayals were very fine and
elicited much applause. The other fea?
tures of the play were well rendered.
OCEAN VIEW VAUDEVILLE.
Trevollo, well remembered here from
his visit last season with West's Min?
strels, made a tremendous hit yester?
day afternoon and evening at the Ocean
View Theatre with Iiis marvellous
walking figures. His powers of ven?
triloquism are remarkable, and aston?
ished his audience, which was very loth
to have him leave the stage at all.
Another strong card at this theatre
this week Is Edson and his dog, "Doc,"
who, together, present a most amusing
and Interesting act, the children being
especially pleased with "Doc," who can
do everything except talk.
BesidcB these two great features,
there are the charming songs of Miss
Flora Parker, and the new musical
sketches of Ballard and Keogh, com?
pleting a bill of rare excellence.
The pleasant effect and perfect safe?
ty with which ladles may use Syrup of
Figs, under all conditions, makes It
their favorite remedy. To get the true
and genuine article, look for the name
of the California Fig Syrup Co. printed
near the bottom of the package. For
sale by all druggists.
