Goodyear, Eliteh & Schilling's n.in
strels are to appear at Harper's theatre
tonight. The company recently appears
ed at Springfield, Ohio, and the News of
the following dty, Feb. l-l, said:
It is difficult to convince the show-go
ing public that a minstrel company pre
sented a programme of nctual novelties,
and brilliant and hih standard novelties
at that. But the big audience wbich
pacl;ed Black' opera house to the very
wall laBt night and gave a generous and
flowing reception to Goodyear, Elitch &
Schillings minstrels will tell you that
the programme was brilliant in special-,
ties and that the performance was the
most novel and attractive seen in Spring
field this season. There wasn't a chest
nut nor a pause in the entertainment. It
was brimful of "go," and carried the au
dience along with it.
Tomorrow night at the Bur
tis suss ime l'uinam win ap
pear in her Lew play. "Love Finds
a Way." The play is a very bright little
comedy drama with much laughter pro
voking lightness and with very much of
pathos in it. Through it all Katie Put
nam is the central attraction, with her
petite, graceful figure and clever imper
sonation of an impetuous, young woman
in love. She has a voice of no great
compass, but one that is very sweet, and
her several songs, especially that of "Love
Finds a Way." are enthusiastically re
ceived. Thursday evening at the Burtis at Dav
enpwrt Denman Thompson and George
W.Ryei's new play, "The Two Sisters,'
will be presented. It is a simple story
simply told that is all and while there is
not a single situation in it that might Ve
called a startling climax, or a scene that
eveneuggists strong emotional acting,
there U a tender pathos abi ut the whole
structure of the play proper that pene
trates the very soul. There are charac
ters introduced who have little to do with
the action of the dranii; they serve to
prolong a story that is too brief to be told
in four acts without introducing a tire
some lot of sentimental stuff that would
shadow what is really good, and thus lose
to the public what is one of the most in
tensely interesting plots that has yet been
put on the stage from an all-American
standpoint. Almost every type of a heter
ogeneous city life is portrayed with a
naturalness so striking that it pleases be
cause it is so commonplace.

to a course that has proven more genu
