A new comic opera, 'Thc Jolly

melody and sightliness. The scheme
or the piece is the turning of romance
into merriment,. The place and time
are trance in the davs of Kichebeu,
when soldiers wore picturesque clothes
and performed deeds of valor. But
the hero, enacted by "Merry JelT" l)j
Angclis, is a comic tvpe of the swash

be ludicrous. 1 ue actor is eonfesse-IIy

His Better Half," a hilariously
funny farce comedy with Boyle &

one bclenging to a different school of

judging from newspaper reports, it is

pronounced kinds for remarkably
clever work in the realm of vaude

have demonstrated their special lit r.css
for the requirements of farce comedy.
It is, therefore, interesting to know
that in "His Better Half" they have
discovered means whereby their indi

harmoniously together the subdued
humor of the one ami the spirited wit
of thevotber act as splendid foils to
characters necessary to evolve a plot
replete with comicalities.

When I lived at Newport, It. I., from
ISO! to 1S7S. says Colonel T. W. Hig
ginson. in The Atlantic, there was a
constant procession of foreign visitors,
varying in interest and often quiio
wanting in It. I remember one eminent
literary man who, in spite of all cau
tions to the contrary, appeared at a
rntlier fashionable day reception in
what would now be called a golf suit,
of the loudest possible pl.t id. like that
of the Scotch cousin in Punch who
comes down thus dressed for church
to the terror of his genteel cousins. In
tliis case the vistor also wore a spy
glass of great size, huug round bis
neck, all through the entertainment.
Another highly connected Kngiish
mnn, attending an evening reception
given expressly for him, came Into the
parlor with ills hat and umbrella in his
hand, declining to be parted from
them through the whole evening,
which suggested to a clever Newport
lady the story of the showman who
exhibited a picture of Daniel in the
lions' don and pointed out that Daniel
was to le distinguished from the lions
hv having a blue cotton umbrella un
der his arm. In this case, the lady re
marked that the conditions were re
versed, since It was the Iiou that car
ried the umbrella.
