Sunday evening Mrs. Marie Mader-
had licr benefit at the German thea

avorito with the patrons of the Gor
man atago , as at an early hour in the
evening the crowd beg.m filling in , in
very largo numbers , iiml when the
curtuin roue pretty well ovary availa
ble seat wait occupied.
Thu play represented wan an histor
ical one , entitled "Good Night Little
llaus , " and it was nmgnilicuntly put
on the boards , Most of the dresses
weru extremely gonjom and were at
the name time yory appropriate. Al
together the mia-eu-Bcenu presented a
Mrs. Mader , aa Maria Thorosia ,
Queen of Austria , looked supremely
imperial , and alio unacted the part aa
if "tn thu man nor born. " Mr. Mol-
chia in the * rolu of Joseph thu Second
showed up well , and Alua Thiossen aa
U.ironesa vonltudururwus very charm-
Mr. Pen nor rjoraonatod the
character of Lord Aspronnnt
with thu usual ability , and Miss Grosa-
nunii aa Marie was especially good.
The character , however , which
soctned to take the fancy of the audi-
unco thu most unmistakably , was that
of .focah Frohn , sustained by Mr.
Hauck. Ilia acting was certainly
very line , and great credit is duo to
him for thu painstaking manner with
which he mastered lita part. .
Mr. Liinlenmnn made a very ellec-
live Father Hichter , and Mr , Lutsch
