Tho Orpheum theatre building Is now?completed less than two and one-half years ago?but Man ager Johu T.

The extra seating capac ity afforded by the extension has been apporpriated ami the number of opera chairs in place has been in creased to 450. The large box scats are iu addition to this number. All fire exits are easily reached and lead to the street on a level com mon with the theatre door. There are five exits, two. of which lead directly from the stage.
