The audience which left the HypeMon last night after the performance of "Mrs. Lefflngwell's Boots" was in a very happy mood. This is certainly one of Augustus Thomas' best comedies, and that Is sayl.ig a great deal. Some of the scenic effects met with heariar- applause, and their beauty well deserv ed it. There ds not a single lull In the action and yet the action Is not so rapid as second act took a most eudden and un expected turn, winning rounds of ap plause, which developed into several curtain calls. The plot of the comedy Is ingenious, to say the least, founded as It la on the most trivial of incidents. William Courtney, who had the difficult role of "Walter Corbln," suffering under the stigma of having Mrs. Lefflngwel'a boots found on his Are escape, was es pecially good, as also, were Louis Payne in the role of Howard Lefflng well, and Vinvent Serano in the part of Richard Ainslee, whose demented brain had caused all the trouble. The Wcstville Hook and Ladder Co. Tuesday evening held a sopial at the engine house. The members and tt-f' friends wsre treated to a c'- -suppfcr,. and after doing j meal, played cards n--Mi . piusio of ft graphc. . r '
