Mr. Ken dall assuming his original role of simon rure. inc play is one that appeals strongly to an audience's in terest, and at the same time creates an unlimited amonnt of fun.

Seabrooke Opera company has everywhere been spoken of as a "brilliant produc tion," "an unqualified hit," -a bright, intelligible plot."

Mr. Seabrooke" greatest charm lies in the absence of buffoonery in his acting his perusal of "Joe Miller's Joke Book" is one of the funniest sights seen on the stac. The work has been classed as the best comic opera since Krminie. The costumes are gorgeous, beautiful and narmonious when massed, and the scenery is a brilliant setting for the action. But a little attractiveness is added to the performance by a well trained company of coryphees, headed by a premiere danseusc. The ballet has a special scene which vies in beauty with the most extrav aganza productions. In fact, the stage looks as if there had been a collision between a rain-bow and a ribbon counter. The Seabrooke Op era company carries a company of 70 people, ana two car loans 01 special scenery. Petite El via Crox, as Di ana, Belle of the Isle, is an important factor in the organization.

The fact Is gonornlly lrncwn that," ac cording to the cxpcrinifciits of tiie late Proressor Heinrich Utrts at Bonn, the velocity with which electricity is prop agated is nearly identical with tho ve locity of light. The identity may be per fect, but vxperimeuta bavo aa yet failed to prove it so. In a recent communication to the French Academy of Si lences, M. Mas cart has shown that the meaa velocity of electricity, as deduced from experi ments is 188. 183 miles pot second. This is about 1 per ornt greater than the velocity of light, which is 188,800 miles per second. It is believed that if light end elctv tricity do move with exactly the same speed the Telocity ascribed to light more closely represents that t-pecd than the velocity ascribed to electricity, because tho experiments are most satisfactory and probably mora accurate in tbe case of light.
