entertainment at the Opera House

programme consists of the drama,

mond; or Cousin Joe's Visit," to
conclude with E. J. Potts in his in
imitable song and dance specialties.
The troupe is composed entirely ot
home talent, and as they have here
tofore given ample evidence of their
ability to entertain an audience in a
first performance in which they ac
quitted themselves with laurels, we
do not hesitate iu commending them
to the public, and we bespeak for
them a rousing house. Admission,

In our last issue wo did not
have space or opportunity to make
that mention of the theatrical per
formance of the Thalia Society
which we would have been pleased
to do had it not transpired upon the
night that the Journal goes to
press. Not being a German scholar,
we of course can not enter into the
merits of tho play nor offer com
ment upon the performers, but to
judge from the deportment upon
the stage, and that of all to us ap
peared excellent, aud the applause
which the performance received
from the large audience, the play
was happily chosen and well ren
dered. It is our opinion that the
Society has among its membership
theatrical ability considerably above
the average amateur performers.

E. Pohl, John Stauffcr, Gus. and
