Miss Delia Fox will bo added to tho
list of female comic opeia stais after
this season. It you should ask just
what qualifications this young lady has
to warrant her ingoing touting at the
head of a company, someone will leply
to you that sho is a "popular favorite,"
This is another neat illustration of my
frequent ohbcrvatious regmding public
taste. Do Wolf Hopper, by galloping
over a stage like a kangaroo with tho St.
Vitus' dance, can but partially till a
theutre, und yot ho is u "monoy maker"
iu thcatriculs. In collaboration with
Miss Fox this rare comedian quite
crowds n playhouse, which has up
parently proved to tho lady, and to
those interested in her wclfaro, that she
is herself an attraction. And I supKso
sho Is. These are odd times, and it is
not always genius that sips champagne.
I think Miss Fox should succeed. Her
hair is the color of a new clothesline,
her limbs aro an plump as autumnal
sausages, and sho can bleat a comic
song ll'to a Iamb calling for its break
fast. Sho has all the attributes of
success, and 1 guosB bIio is a good In
vestment for mamigeis. Town Topics.

Tho lovers of high class acting, like
the loverB of any other stylo of high
class art, are always on the qui-vivo for
anything that partakes of the higher
grade. Many times have they been
called upon to pass judgment upon a
new star, and in many respects found
them wanting. Previous biicccbs, high
est praise, skillfully written articles, all
tending to the ability of a star have been
written; but when the test has been
applied, tho methods of the star, in con
junction with his intelligence and
repeat eh, defects and crudities, have
been so apparent, that dissatisfaction
has asserted itself iu spite of the plaudits
sought for. To those who analyse, rend
and study the art of acting in its natural
sense, the tragedian, Mi. Walker White
side, will best apie.il. Ho simply
relics on the intelligence of his auditor
to Hash forth that electrical spark of
appreciation that seems so little, yet
means so much. Tho forthcoming ap
pearance of Mr. Walker Whiteside at
the Lansing will piovo a source or pleiih
inc. Mr. Whiteside will present
"Richelieu" Monday evening.
Clara Morris will present "Camilla" at
tho Lansing theatre Wednesday Nov. '22.
Clara Morris is now at her best. The
play and tho star are familiar, neverthe
less both tiro sufficiently potent to
attract a largo audience. Doubtless
the desire to witness and enjoy the
marvellous impersonation, tho fascina
ting acting of this talented woman, the
gieatest emotional actress on the
English speaking stage, will prove a
gieater iiitlueiiei' iu bringing about this
public favor, for iu many other hands
'Camillo" would be played to empty
Thousands of young women have
wept over tho sorrow b of Camillc, with
out in tho least comprehending any
thing further concerning her than that
she vtiis a most unhappy woman, who
was separated from the object of her
intense love, and who died of consump
tion just as the obstacles to tho icaliza
tioti of her passion had been removed.
It excuso were needed for retaining
this play upon tho stage, it might
readily be found in tho work of Clara
Morris, who stands today, as she has for
yeais, without an equal in tho art of
loprcsonting womanly misery. Sho re
tains and uses with surprising effective
ness her great gift of compelling from
her audiences the keenest sympathy and
tho deepest compassion for tho sorrows
and sufferings which she simulates,
rhoie is, however, no call at tliia late
day for an analyzation of her acting.
Clara Morris is simply upon the stage
with powers unimpaired and iu con
genial loles. This is the whole story.
No, not quite all of it, for she is also
well supported by her piesent company.
Mr. John Glendenuing makes an ad
mirable Armitnd Duval. Mr. F. C.
Harriott a dignilied Manx. Duval. Mr.
Mr. W. C. Kelly a capital Dc Varvillc.
Tho others in tho cast, paitieulaily tho
women, do their work well.

equally effective, "roasting" each other. Any
