A ,pKEMEN*DDI'S SUCCESS.
"My Friend From India," in which the
original Smith iV Rice Comedy Company
is an.iounced to appear at the Academy
of Music, to-morrow^ night, deserves ?o
rank among the masterpieces of genuine
? :omedy, according to nil the excellent re
poits that have been receded. It is said
to be filled with an effervescing combina?
tion of wit, wholesome humor and spark?
ling dialogue, a positive ?uro for ennui
or auy other member of the family blues,
and it is from the pen of H. A. Du
Souchet In its plot the motive is suhl
to be remarkably novel and very origi?
nal. This is the play that made an un?
known author famous In n night, and
created stieb a sensation in New York last
year when it was originally produced at
the Bijou Theatre in that city. It suc?
ceeded in crowding this theatre to its
utmost capacity, during a run of three
consecutive months, at the end of which
it, was forced to leave owing to previous
contracts for its production in Boston,
Philadelphia, Chicago and St. Louis.
O'NEILL IX ' MONTE CRISTO."
At the Academy last night a fine amli
ence greeted Mr. O'Neill in his intcrpre
tatfon of Dumas' innuoital character
"Monte Cristo." There h wo been a few
great romantic creations of the century
that stand out in bold relief from the
man of character presented on the stage,
tine of the most conspicuous of these is
O'Neill, Count)of Monte Cilsto. The per?
formance throughout was most gl?tifv
ing, and throughout the ilve acts the star
held the audience spell-bound at the deft?
ness of the art with which he assumed
his diflicnlt rob*. The company accom?
panying Mr. O'Neill is large, and renders
him excellent support. Miss Emily Dodd
was especially hapnv In her rendition of
Mercedes, white Mr. Dixon as Cadernuse
whs the comedian to the fioger t'ps. Mr.
Bresee nsMorcerf, Mr. Lingha.ni as Yille
I'ort. and'Mr. Thompisoa as Nortier'were
each fi&ished artists fn their several tolos.
The staging of the play was good, the
special scenery carried by the company
adding much to the enjoyment of the
play. 'The prison scene and the escape,
iu the second act, was specially well
staged. VVo are sure all lovers of this
inimitable play felt lust night that they
bad witnessed as good a presentation of
it as they could have seen on any stage
in the country. "Our Friend From
India" is the next attinotion Wednesday
night, an<l from what wo can learn, is
likely to be the greatest comedy success
of the season, nothing having ever ap?
proached Its success in New York.

MR. RICE REMEMBERED.
The Christmas entertainment nt tho

night was quite a success in every way.
Just before the close of the entertain?
ment Mr. W. A. Thomas steppen to the
rostrum and asked the pastor, Hew S. I?..
Kice, to give hin? his attention for a few 1
moments aud addiei-.ed the pastor as fil
"I hold in my ha ml an umbrella aud a
Bible, costing' about $20, which are
Christmas gifta to you from your class of
young men as expressions of their grati?
tude to you for the pains you have taken

express the great friendship which has
sprung up in cur hearts for you, hut we
trust you will accept it as heartily as wo

it above your head aud it protects you
from nature's storms you will remember
that it symbolizes the protection to our
hearts and conscisnces which your faith?

NOONDAY PRAYER MEETING.
Notwithstanding quite a number of
our business men who for a tune were
regular iu atteudanco and Wtre active
participants have for some tune drifted
away, there are always a sufllclent num?
ber present to have a ''elightful service
and very halpfulto thosu who feel the need
of daily spiritual food. There were twelve
present yesterday, and the interest was
such as to cause general regret win n tho
forty minutes expired. A very interest?
ing instance of how God uses "little
things" in sending salvation through the
gospel to those in darkness and sin at our
very doors was related by one of he
brethern at this meeting. At tho meet?
ing Christmas day, while Evangelist
Strouse was speaking a stranger walked
in iiul)took|aseat. Afterthoserviceclo.sr.il
a brother spoko to the stranger and en?
gaged him iu conveisatlou. Ho seemed
to he somewhat intoxicated. Ho said he
dropped iu think lug perhaps, some one
would go with him to see a sick man who
wanted somebody to talk to him about
the s-alvatlon of his soul. Au engage?
ment was made and the following after
noon witnessed the happv conversion of
the sick man's mother, and the next day
the father was lead to Christ. It was
unanimously voted to extend an invita?
tion to Evangelist <""larence Strouso to bo
present and conduct the New Year's
meeting. The meeting to day will ue lead
by Dr. Fiery and the lesson will be the
24th chapter of^Acts.
