The Ford Comic Opera company appeared last evening in Ihe legendary idyl of Rip Van Winkle. Min Clara May, always charming in any role, appeared to belter advantage than the night previous as Gretchen Van Winkle and Meene Van Winkle. Mr. Ed Chapmin as Rip evinced very little merit either as actor or singer. The choruses are superb, though the young ladles participating therein are monot onously ethrrial in make-up. They lack sub stantial avoirdupois, and In the icene when they appear in chorus, as old Rip falls Into 20 years ol enchanted sleep, they look very much like animated spare ribs scantily draped. This predominantly anti-fat spictacle makes one shiver of a cold night to observe. To night the engagement of this company closes with Blue Beard. Guadalupe Day. To-day among the Mexican population everywhere is celebrated with great pomp and ceremony the Apparition of Ojr Lady of Guadalupe. It is the most important re ligious feast of the year wilh them.

To Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe there are four large churches erected three miles Irom the City ol Mexico. They con tain religious offerings of gold and silver In iuch quantities as to make them treasure home!, and it Is a noticeable fact that In all the revolutions of that country where churches were first to be despoiled and stripped of their wealth that the sanctuary of Guadalupe has never been desecrated by the plunderer.
