The advent of Booth and Haiiett in Lincoln
this season moans much for our eitj lis 11 live,
wido nvvako theatrical centre, and tholui
mouse audience that witnessiMl the presenta
tion of "Julius Cu-snr," t n rnto of $: to $5
per wilt, hIiows conclusively that Lincoln is
in tho trout rank to appreciate talent ami
high ait. Not a seat was left anil ninny were
unablo to gain admittance, tho success of
tho I'ligageiuent is eel tainly ei editable to tho
management of tlm Funko, and Lincoln, as
woll as tho liouso, is to lie oonginttiliitcd upon
tho success of tho until o iiiralr. Tho city, he
cause it has lieon onooftho few, coinpnra
tivoly slinking, that hno lieon given u date,
secondly, that Lincoln Iris shown a greater
dognsj of appreciation of ti 110 merit than a
numlier ot larger cities lioth cast and west, in
that tho patronage was larger I1010 than at
sevetnl larger places, and Messrs. Craw foul
ti McHoynolds should receie due ci edit from
tlicatio goers for lming oirorod tho trage
iliaus sulllelent liidueeinent to visit us.
After tho iccoipts had Ihsjh counted up
Thursday, -Manager MeHoynolds hnd amplo
causo to gtwt a sigh of relief. Tho local man
agement had guarnntceil the Hooth Ilarrott
combination an immense sum and it took
much pluck to uudertako to successfully
steer the enterprise 10 such lirllllnnt suceeos.
It is to tho untiring cirorts of tho ninuiigo
inent ofFuuko's oicru house that Lincoln
goes onrccoidas being one of tlio liost show
towns in tlio land, as tho audlencoand llgmes
of Thursday's iwrforiuanco certainly show,
show. Good attinctioiis never fail to draw
largo houses in Lincoln, hut to tho snido
show mid "ImniHtoiiiiur" it has nothing hut
