Lilliputian Comic Opera.
There is something unusually novel and orig

be found in another column, both as to the per-
lonnel of the company and also the play Itself.
The company Is composed of Col. Goshen, a gen
tleman 7 feet, 2 inches in height, weighing COO
pounds; Commodore Nnt, ISO inches high; Major
Nutt, 40 inches high; Miss Jenny Quigley, 28
inches high, and others equally remarkable for
The piece is a new version of the well-known
tale "Jack, the Giunt-Killer." Col. Goshen is, of
course, the Giant, and Com. Nut, "Jack." The
value of the company, as mentioned above, In
such a play can be readily appreciated, and with
their ability as actor they will produce the play
in a manner at once artistic and entertaining.
The new story is written In rhyme and, while true
to the origin.il tale, contains many hits at poli
tics and society. Interspersed through it arc
songs and dances by the little Queen, Miss Quig
ley, which will add not a little to its amusing
character. The stage trappings will be fully up
to the requirements of the pluy, as will be the
