We are glad to inform the citizens

The District School.
The entertainment given at the opera
house last night afforded as much aum. e
mciit to the lovers of burlesque as any
comedy we have ever seen on the stage.
The old district school was presented by
the performers with ns much natural
ability as in the days gone by- over fifty
years ago, and all experienced spectators
informed us that the representation could
not have been surpassed. Many were
surprised to notice with what ease some
of the performers acquitted themselves
especially the twins and did their work
as artists. As all the leading characters
were first-class, it would be folly to at
tempt to particularize, but to say that
each scholar acquitted himself or herself
remarkably well would not be over
reaching the bounds of good judgment
Mr. II. J. Streight impersonated the dis
trict school teacher to perfection, and
exhibited good judgment in the use of
the Bail and the dunce cap. The same
company will appear at the opera house
tonight, but an entirely different pro
gramme will be presented. As the
declamations will be more numerous, the
entertainment will still be more intense.
The big fat boy of the Journal office
will appear in the same costume as worn
last M'ght, and it is said that he w ill be
bold enough to spring a son.? Preserve
your boquets until then, because he will
surely be worthy of them all. The an
nouncement of this Engagement Extra
ordinary should fill thu opera house.
