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.
The management of the Burtis will
present Tim Murphy and company in

Mr. Murphy is one of the most tal

stage, as his wonderfully clever crea
tion of Maverick Brander fully dem
onstrates; it was he who originate!
the part, and he has played it ever
since with most emphatic success.
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. Like all his
plays, it sparkles with bright wit
and satire and introduces a collection
of the quaintest characters ever

the knowledge that so many forms of
sickness are not dne to any actual dis
ease, but simply to a constipated condi

family laxative. Syrup of Figs, prompt
ly removes. That is why it is the only
remedy with millions of families, and is
everywhere esteemed so highly by all
who value good health. Its benehcial
effects are due to the fact, that it is the
one remedy which promotes internal
cleanliness, without debilitating the
organs on which it acts. It is therefore
all important, in order to get its bene
