The first years covered by the re- |
art were years of a high degree of
rosperlty when measured by stand- |
ds of the past. Then came the do- I
resslon of 1893 and the succeeding
ars folowed by the wave of pros

' this revival of business on wage 1

It Is a brand new production, I
having opened for the first time I
on August 29th, but In all of the (
lurge rlties In which It has ap- j
jieared the critics have declared I
it the best musical production |
seen In recent years.
All people Informed in (heatri- I
cals know that this attraction is |
headed by an actor the peer of |
any on the stage, and also I now |
that the largo cast of principals, |
a nsi 01 wnom nave upon given j
from lime to time are of iinasu- |
al talent, and any one of whom i

ii strong attraction. Besides the |

own, which IIb so essential In |
bringing out to the best possible j

Bear In- mind that you have 1
