While an entire company of home talent is commendable and interesting in a way, there ia at the same, time something about the bringing here of several members of the cast for the opera "Priscilla" that commends itself to the public. Miss Marie Kaufman will undoubt edly make a most charming "Priscilla," both in the matter of her voice and dramatic action and dialogue. As "Resignation," the fussy old maid, Miss Juliet Swayne could not be excell ed for her clever conceptioa and por trayal of this screamingly funny part. Miss Josephine Cates as "Faith," is most charming and her work in; con nection, with that of Miss Bertha Gar ver as ''Barbara.0 and Miss Martha McClellan as "Prudence,'? will add ma terially to the " success of the opera.

Mr. Grimes also is a pupil of Mr. Taylor and is making a name for himself in this line of work. Mr. Chas. Cox, " one of our local singers, does excellent work, as "Gov. Brad ford."
