"Laughter holding both its sides" will
be practically illustrated at Harper's tbeas
tre tonight upon the appearance of Rus
sell's comedians in the play that baa made
all America laugh for the past four years.
The Chicago Times says of tbo performs
ance in that city where it has been pre
gented 100 performances:

most phenomenally .successful of that
popular style of entertainments termed
farce comedies, csme back to the Chicago
opera house last night, having conquered
New York and met with what the news.
papers cnll an "ovation," that is a tre
mendous crowd,, incessant laughter and
deafening applause. There never was so
many talented men and women turned
loose in one small farde comedy pasture
as is seen in manager Rueaell'a collection
of comedians. This company is remark
able in the ability of every member, both
as comedians and vocalists. Every one
contributes an important part to the gen
eral unceasing merriment, and it is im
possible in fairness to single out any
member for special praise.
"The City Directory' makes no pre
tense to plot, though a story is told
and continuity aimed at; it ia almost
overcrowed . with novel and intensely
amusing business, with uproarious fun
and with exceedingly bright and witty
lines, white there is a commendable ab-
f ence of horse plays of yulgarity, and tbe
whole is mellowed and knitted together
with delightful and catchy music.
The new singing comedy, "An Ameri
can Boy," will be presented at Harper's
theatre Thursday, Nov. 19. Tbe play
opers in a country tavern with a good
natured landlord, who is also the post
master. Johnnie Potts, the American
Boy, hangs around the tavern and does
odd jobs, and occasionally plays a trick
on him. Mrs Potts, a dressmaker, lives
in the villsge; also fx Judge Stebbins, a
widower with a pretty daughter. Both
tbejudeand the landlord are paying
attentions to Mrs Potts, and are
both, jealous. A commercial drummer
who visits the town now and then, is in
live with the judge's daughter, and
would like to marry the girl, but the
judge won't have it. So between the
landlord, tbe Widow Potts, the judge and
tbe drummer, things are kept lively dur
ing the three acts, and Johnnie Potts, tte
American Boy, together with Teddy Phil
lips, bis chum, keep matters interesting.
Felix Ragan, an Irishman who does odd
jobs around the tavern, Frayed Montt
gue, a tramp, and Dolly Tipps, a city girl,
are prominent characters in the play.
Music, dancing, singing and refined spec
ialties are sparkling features of the per
formance, and the American Boy trio
the Union quartette and the many tew
features make the rew comedy a brilliant
