Antlcinations in reference to the 'Orpheum Stock company at th3 New Phillips this week are not beinj dis appointed, for the company is proving a capable one and the patronage is of a liberal nature. The fact that the company has vaudeville features in addition to its repertoire is a point in its favor, as New Phillips patrons have been accustomed, to vaudeville for so many weeks that they find it a difficult thing to break the habit of attending. This week they are getting repertoire and vaudeville at popular prices and are showing their appreci ation.. This afternoon "The Church Across the Yv'ay" will be - presented and tonight the bill will be "College Chums." Mr. Arthur Chatterton, who heads the company, has verified the claim made for him as to being an ac tor of ability, and of much promise. Miss. Marie Freeh, in soubrette roles, is the equal of any one seen in this line at the , New Phillips in a long time. IMPERSONATES SUCCESSFULLY AS A WOMAN. NOTICE OF DEATH EXPERT ON ANIMALS.
