Tbe claim ii nmdo lor Lincoln J. Carter's new scenic play, "The Tornado," that its realisms are of ?uch an imposing natare that even the pictorial matter uied in advertising tho play does not do the piece justice; that the ncenes depicted by tho posters are actually so much moro impressivo trlien seen, as Mr. Carter presents them in his play, that one must acknowledge that for once the printer's ink has not ovordone things. This, of course, is a novelty in theatrical advertising. The company dl *.!.? nr th? Onnra HOUSO next Thursday, and the sale of Beats will be at House's music store. At the Opera liourto To-tlny.

The playora that give this good old-timer at the Lycouui this week say that they have "a brand-new harness, and are groomed strictly up to date." They are right. The play has all itajpld-tirao liveliness. Anyone who has seen this show, which surely was a funny farce-comedy, Bhouid know that it is as funny as ovor. and the company that gives It this week at tho Lyceum is a good one. llobort Hllllnrd. Wednesday ovoninff next will bo a merry ode at the Opera House, when Jlr. Robert Billiard comos with a delightful company in that funniest of all comedies^ "The Nominee."

Tho attraction for the evening was the new 'Trolley System," tho merits of which bora testimony to tho oxcollont good judgment pf tho immense audience of pleasuro-seekors. A person with no appreciation for fun, tho ludicrous and grotosque would have bub little appreciation of tho "Trolley System," but to those who eniov a cood. hoartv. unceasing and pro longed lauali it waa H veritable feast, Tlio piece will bo ropoatod at the matineo to-day and again this evening.
