"By WitB Outwitted" will bo the at
traction at tho Lansing theatro tonight.
It is said to bo ono of tho most literary,
but with-ull excruciatingly funny com
edies of tho ago. It is modern, bright,
sparJingnnd witty. Strango to say it
Is most ingenious and original in both
conception and execution. The fun
bubbles spontaneously out of its situa
tions. However clever a play without
an intelligent cast and artistic and effec
tive production is impossible. This has
woll been kept in mind by the manage
inent of "By Wits Outwitted," who
have engaged young, bright, intelligent
Vsd recourcoful actors for tho sevoral

'I no notauio ovoni or me coming weoK
will be tho production of Mortimer's
comedy success, "Gloriana," at the
Lansing theatre Tuesday, January 0.
It onjoyed last year a very profitable
uin ot nearly luunigma in now lorn.
IMr. Mortimer's comedy is said to bo in
.many particulars t'-e best play of its
cind that our stage has shown. It is
instructed .on tho basis ot a plot sug
gested by the cleverness of the French
J : y-
comedy, "Truo d'Arthur," and produced
at the Globo theatre, London, whero it
is nearing its 350th performance
The story in brief is as follows:
Mr. Leopold Fitz-Jocelyn is about .to
marry Miss Chadwlck, tho daughter' ot
a rich Briminghatn tanner, but ho Ib
somewhat embarrased by certain
episodes in his life in which figures a
dashing young widow, Mrs. Gloriana
Lovoring, and a trip to Brighton.
Miss Chadwick and her father visit
Jocelyn in his bachelor apartments, and
just after they leave tho houso tho
widow is announced. It occurs to
Jocelyn to change clothes with Spinks,
his valet, and pretend to bo tho servant
instead of the gentleman ho appeared
whilo flirting with the widow at Brigh
ton. Spinks dons his master's clothes
and tho master masquerades as a
menial. The widow, being a romantic
turn of mind, instead of being dis
gusted at the fact that she has lavished
her affections upon a servant, takes a
greater fancy to Jocelyn than ever and
insists on continuing the flirtation.
Spinks, the soi-disant master, gives tho
masquerading Jocelyn the worst
characters, but it avails nothing and
the widow insists upon taking tho
liveried admirer into her own sorvico in
order to havo him always near her
Jocelyn reluctantly consents. While
in the widow's employ ho meots her
Russian lover, Count ExitofT, tho latter
also encountering tho real Spinks, dis
guised as tho master.
Mrs. Lovering's servant girl, Kitty,
discovers her old sweetheurt in the form
of Spinks, and this greatly complicates
matters, mixing up master and man
with mistress and maid in various love
ufTuirs. Mr. Chadwick and tho Count
discover tho parties in peculiar situa
tions which results in tho Russiun
challenging Spinks to a dulo and nearly
causes the postponement of tho mar
riage between Jocelyn and Miss Chad
wick. Finally tho Count's jeulousy is
allayed by a ruse of Kitty's, tho mas
tuorading 1b explained to tho satisfac
tion ot tho innocent parties, Mrs.- Lover
ing also having disguised herself, and
tho curtain fulls on throo happy pairs ot
united lovers. Tho company is a com
petent ono and includes such players as
Emily Bancker, George W. Burnum,
Alt. Hampton, Thomas W. Ryley,
Eugene Eberlo, Goorgo Parsons, Tlllio
Barnum and others of noto. Manager
Church assures The Courier that this
is tho No. 1 company and guaruntoea

service between Chicago and Pittsburgh.
Tho routo is via Akron, Ravenna, War

trains nro run every day, both carrying
day coaches and newvestibulcd sloeplug
cars through without chungc.
The Pittsburgh express leaves Chicago
at 3:00 p. m., und arrives at Pittsburgh
tho next morning ut 7:05. Tho vestibule
limited leaves Chicago at 7:30 p. in., and
arrives at Pittsburgh tho next morning
at 11;10. Tho vestibule limited also
carries a Pullman sleeper to Clovelund
via Akron, urriving ut Clovelund at
8.-00 a. m.
All B. & O. trains depart from tho
Grand Central passenger station, corner
5th avenuo and Harrison street, Chi
cogo, tho finest and most commodious
station in Americu.
Next to tho world's fair, all our
foreign friends want to sco Niagara
Falls, and in tho minds of many,
Niagara Falls ia placed first. Ono ot
tho first questions they ask un Ameri
can either nt homo or aboard is about
Niagara, but to many of us Niagaru
Falls is too near. Wero it on tho other
eideof tho world, thousundsof American
globo trotters would hasten there, who
puss it by now because thoy cun go
there any time.
Tho Michigan Central Hub made it,
perhaps, too easy of access, for its
through trains from Chicago to Now
York and Boston run directly by und in
full view of tho great cataract, and
thoso passing by daylight stop five
minutes for passengers to view tho Falls.
Tho wiso traveller however will stop
over thoro as long as his timo will per
mit to view tho beauties and the gran
dour of tho falls under different aspects
and from different points ot view. The
longer ho stops the more he will find to
repay him for whatever expenditure of
time and money he incurs.
