The farce is mounted in tho most lavish manner and employs a perfect company in its interpretation. One begins laugh ing with the first word spoken and dots not stop until the final curtain falls. New complications arise overy moment and tho interest is sustained until the end of the play which comes suddenly and with out tho usual warning. Mrs. Temple’s Telegram" is modestly announced as a farce, and so it is. technically speaking, but so skillfully played as to give to those who seo it tho delight and satisfaction which attend a finished performance of comedy. It is a farce played as a com edy and thus treated, its clever situations, and entanglements which other wise might seem strained and theatrical become the “real thing.” ••Mrs. Temple’s Telegram" was origi nally produced by Walter N. Lawrence at j the Madison Square Theatre. New York, and by special arrangement Messrs. Stockwell & MacGregor have secured the rights to the play ard in presenting it to Rocky Ford theatre goers feel .confi dent that it will dup icate the Eastern success.
