At the Burtis at Dayenport tomorrow
ftfternoon and evening and also the fol
lowing evening will be presented that
masier stage prodnction, Paul Kauvar.
This is one of the grandest productions
of the day. The Northampton Daily
Herald says of it;
Steele Mackayt's five set drama, "Paul
Kauvar," was given at the Academy of
Music Saturday evening to a fair sized
bouse. The play deals with the days of
the French revolution and possesses man v
siirring incidents. In one scene the guil
lotine is shown and the executioner holds
up a severed head, making a very graph
ic eff-ct. The head is composed of wsx
and is a fine imitation of that which
it is intended. The company was an
exce lent one, nd the acting good
througuout. Edward L. Snader in the
title roie, pave a careful rendition of his
part, and Miss Agnes Roselle Knott, a
beautiful and talented lady, acted the
character of Diane wilh grace and abil
ity. E R. Spencer, as Gouroc; Arthur
G. Smith as the Due de Beaumont; Dan
iel Kelly as Dudnlpbe Potin, and Miss
Margaret Ivanhitla's Nnette, were good,
and the drama passed off smoothly, and
was much enjoyed by all present.
On Monday evening next, "A Turkish
Batb," the latest and most successful
musical comedy, will be seen at Harper's
theatre. An excellent company of sitg
ers and dancers and comedv artists, wlil
uroduce the fun. The Omaha Bee says:
"Miss Marie Heath, who makes her ap
pearance as a star in this new candidate
for the public's appreciation, is a prettv,
winsome woman, and plays a child's
part, cast in the same mould as Innocent
Kid, in-A Parlor Match,"excellently. She
has a much more pleasing voice than is
usual with the soubrette, the song,
"Won't You Cime Oat and Play," being
received with marked favor.
Tomorrow evening a first class athlet e
performance will hold the boards at Har
per's theatre. Jim Hall, the Australian
middleweight, will be the star attraction,
and will give an exhibition of the art of
self defence snd give some scientific spar
rinz. A number of artists of the
ring will be present.
