Daniel Sully portrays his Irish characterization in "A Bachelor's Wives" in the same quaint and nat ural manner that distinguished his parts in former productions. His arge kind looking iace and rich dia lect and hia singular conception of dress never attempting to burlesque nature makes mm an immediate fa vorite. While his latest venture is p-to -date, clean, spicv and inter esting in dialogue and embodies nu merous ludicrous situations, it could be executed in a more lively manner and which no doubt would add con siderably to the beauty of the produc tion. But Sully is surrounded with good company and A Bachelor's Wives" seen at Harper's theatre last evening, is made a first-class enter tainment. Solly is seconded by a clever actor of the German dialect in the person of Dan Mason, while Miss Julia Hanchett makes a oharm- ing widow. Of Herschell Mayall, who assumes the role of George Far well, the villain, it is due him to say that he is a finished actor and the right man in the proper place. The remainder of the cast was well sustained. Other Attraction.

A Texas Steer" embodies lloyt s views of the political question in a certain quarter of Texas, with a touch here and there on tne social life in Washington.

The attraction is sure ot a cordial greet ing. YOCNG McCOMBS. Gladness Comes With a better understanding of the transient nature of the manv cbva- ical ills which vanish before proper ef fortsgentle efforts pleasant efforts rightly directed. There is comfort in the knowledge that so many forms of sickness are not dne to any actual dis ease, but simply to a constipated condi tion of the system, which the pleasant family laxative.
