It hhould be remembered that on next
Wednesday evening Airs. Laura Tisdale,
a lady of the finest literary taste
and culture, and one ot the
finest elocutionist of the day, will
appear at the atheneum in this
ciry. As an evidence of the
impressions inuile upon those
who have witnessed her reading,
we print tho following extracts. Prof.
E. B. Booth, the eminent elocutionist of
Mis. TIsu.i; has a clear perception ol
thought and character, tine literary taste
and culture, md Is thoroughly in earnest;
she is therefore eminently fitted to give
an Intelligent and appreciative Interpre
tation to whatever auihor she may
choose. Her ideal In elocution Is Very
high, and 1 am iliankful to say embrace
something beyond an exhibition ol vocal
tricks or final dlsolay.
E. K. Churchill, of tho Provldeuce
Joimal, writes, under date of Aug. 17,
'1 am lost In surpriso at the rapidity
with which you have Liudeyour way and
