THE first of tho season Both at the National where 3000000 b held forthand forth forthand forthand
and at tho Columbia which saw The Deacon and the Lady thepatronage
patronage was good and from the enjoyment o ol the music tho
applause and the avidity with which encores on cores were demanded It was easy
see that this form of entertainment retains all Its popularity popularlt with theater theatergoers theatergoers theatergoers
goers And yet there was wa something disappointing In both these musical com comedles COJ11edles cojnedios
edles The comedians were good in n both cases the mlso en scene was all
could be desired desiredpretty pretty girls tuneful choruses graceful dancing danolngbut but
all there was not one single new thing In either of them Back of both tioth
there was no story both of them were constructed along the old lines
one vaudeville act after another anotheruntil until really they became a little tiresome tiresomeIt tlresorpeIt
It does seem a pity plt that some genius does not arise to save us from the throes throesof throesor throesof
