ON THE STAGE.
Hie Boston Ideals Playing: to Their
Usual Heavy Business.
Vnnle Fixlcy's Zara— Taming of tlio j
Tin 1 Boston Ideals played to crowded
bouses at the Grand opera bows the lirst
half of tin' week, notwithstanding this m
their second \ i~.it to St. Paul this season.
The new Qperas presented by this company
were decidedly pleasing to the opera going
people of the city, as shown by the attend
ance, and it is a commentary on the popular
taste that the old favorite, "F» Diavalo,"'
did not draw as well as the others. The
company has been in Minneapolis for the
past throe days and will remain there three
iltivs longer, when they will again appear
it the Grand open house and complete
their eiuatrement. The repertoire for this
week is tiie same as last, with a single ex
ception, being as follows: Thursday.
"Victor;" Friday, "Maid of Honor:" Sat
urday matinee. "Musketeers:" Saturday,
"Adina." The company will undoubtedly
j>lay to large audiences, as it has ever been
popular here, anil not only here. There
are a number of singers in the company
who are not only well known throughout
the country but any one t»f whom will draw
irood houses anywhere in the country. The
BostOU Ideals are the universal favorite*,
owing not only to their unequaled musical
combination but to the high personal char
acter of the Individual singers.
Annie Pixlev closed her engagement last
night in "Zara." which is one of Tied
Marsdeu's smoothest comedies. The plot
Is good and well connected, but the comedy
part lacks bold situations. The dialogue Is
ino-t excellently written, and taken alto
gether "Zara" is one of the most Capti
vating little comedies in the dramatic cata
logue, i. ist niuiit was tiie first time it had
been produced in this city, and Miss
Pixley received most enthusiastic ap
plause from the fairly good audi
ence that greeted her production of
It Slie is even more charming asZara
than as M"l:->. Sue seems to catch the
spirit of the wild gypsy girl more perfectly
than she d.>e> that of the child of the
Sierras. There is a touch of refinement in
Zara's waywaidness which does not attach
to M'li-s, and which trives Miss l'ixley a
better opportunity tor a more correct inter
pretation of the character, as it is more
natural to her. Her sinL r :nir was better
last night than in M'li>«. and <he had a
triple encore on her plantation melodies in
the second act, a> she did with her soldier
aong in the last act.
The Boston [deals will return on Thurs
day t.« complete their week's engagement
in this city. The repertoire is. Thursday,
"Victor, the Blue Stocking"; Friday,
"Maid of Honor": Saturday bight,
"Adina." and Saturday matinee, "The
Musketeers." The following week "The
Shadowsof a Great City," written by Joe
Jefferson and under the management of his
sou Charlie Jefferson, will be presented at
the Grand, occupying the entire week.
III!". lIK.II SCHOOL PUPILS,
On Thursday and Friday evenings and
Saturday afternoon Shakespeare's comedy,
'•The Taming of the Shrew." was pre
sented at the hidi school hall by pupils of
the school. The performance was very
creditable to flic youths and maidens as
Burning the different roles. Miss Annie
Blinker as the Shrew acted her part in a
way which would do credit to an older ami
more experienced woman. Miss Adah
Hawkins as Bianca looked and acted tiie
younger and gentler sister in excellent
taste. Mr. Fred Powers made a very cred
itable Petrochto. Mr. Ben. N. Johnson as
LucenUo; Mr. W. L. Harming, Jr., as
Grumio; Mr. Mark Hoyt as Hortensio,
acted their respective parts very creditably.
The hall was comfortably tilled at each
performance by an audience in sympathy
with the performers and was generous of

During the past week May Fiske's blondes
have been the attraction at the Olympic.
The entertainment is opened by aswintrmg

is very tame fur its name. For the week of

Tin; DIME MUSEUM.
Bill Jones, a Texas youth, who created a
furor in the F.ast by eating glass, will be
the feature at the .Seventh street museum
next week. Jones is said to eat from
twenty to thirty lamp chimneys a day and
apparently thrives on the diet. An elabo
rate glass menu has been prepared, and
Willy will masticate the viands during each
lecture. It is claimed that the juices of his
stomach are stronger than oxalic acid,
and by means of this phenom
ena he manages to live on this
novel food. Jones is now 35
years of age, and has accomplished this
glass-eating feat for years without apparent
injury. There will be additional features,
viz.: The colorless family, the mermaid,
etc. On the stave Walter Pray's Brilliants,
a musical and comedy company, will make
out the program.
This popular musical organization will
give the twelfth concert, seventh series, at
Turner hall this evening. The program in

A blushing and pretty young teacher

There is so much to be done, and George
don't want to wait until Christmas day."
"The resolution of the board gives the
money to those who have served seven
years up to Dec. 31. I am afraid that
George will have to wait," said Mr. Jasper,
"I suppose he will, then," she contin
