Gillette's well-known farce-comedy ushered
in t'li ri- tin ti- week at tbe Baldwin, and had
sufficient power to draw, nut a crowd, but
enough people to comfortably seat the
auditorium. The piece went well. A por
tion of tbe audience was almost hysterical
in the laughter that some of the situa
tions provoked. It was a question in
the minds of thinking people whether the
business on the stage or funny business out
side the theater before the doors were
opened caused the hilarious demonstration.
Duiistan, the private secretary, is good in
his irksomely acrobatic part. Catleruiole
(Mr. Harry Allen), the liver-blown and
chutnee-fired East Indian uncle, springs

way, aud if Dnnstan do not have a care
he will meet the fate oi Nick Long— a two
years' lay-up with necrosis of the leg-bones,
and a benefit to follow. Ifie young ladies
in ihe cast, Maud Giroux and Mi>s N. Fer

whether the fact that must of our opera

Yon Flotow's popular opera had but an in
different attendance to enjoy its mellifluent
melodies last evening. Miss Pauline L'Al

Mr. Alfred Wilkie that of Lionel. Bulb

ence frequent occasions to applaud, which
were accepted. Mr. Wilkie sang the aria
"M'Appari'' iv tbe closing act in better style
than usual— seeming more at ease, ami with
better vecal force at command. This even
ing the same opera wiil be repeated with
the same names in the leading roles.

called eccentric, and the country bumpkin

sufficiently marked contrast In tbe manner
of personation to show Mr. Stockwell's ver
satility. He carried himself remarkably
well in both characters. For the rest of the
cast the same may be wrltteu of tlieir in

it may be accepted that the revivals, odd as
they are for a holiday seasiin, will carry
successfully through, the Christmas and

The production of this war drama, written

was the tiist offering of nu uutried

be afforded for ti is purpose. Suffice it to
say that the military leatures were in
good form and tl.e incidental attractions
well sustaiued. It is not a "Shenandoah,"

but a little revision by the author, aided by
those who have some ability in tlio way of

to Brouson Howard's successful negative

While Director Locke is commonly sup

He receives a very large salaiy for his man

sonally caunot be paid by the Treasurer
of the organization unless duo Locke on
account of services. It is a supposable
conjecture tbat a few wealthy individuals
are supporters of the present admirable
productions, and Locke is best fitted by ex
perience, popularity with artists aud reputa
tion with tliegrent public for giving grand
performances to bring the Juch Opera to a
nigh aud successful position. This year bus
seen its greatest triumph, and the fact th tt
the company has added nt least three Wag
