"Many people were agreeably disap
pointed at the Walnut Street theatre
last night. Tho word many is used
advisedly, for tho audience was one of
the largest gathered at that house upon
Sunday night in many months, and tho
disappointment, agreeable, as has been
6aid, camo through tho fact that the
performance was much better than had
been expected; in fact, a better per
formance than any of tho Foy companies
have given hero in years. "Off tho
Earth" was not such a dazzling thing
at tho oulcet, and it would perhaps be
extravagant praieo 10 terra it a great
travesty or burlesque, but it certainly
has improved, cb iudecd, has Mr. Foy
himself, and as preserted last evening
fairly deserved tho liberal applause bo
etowed both upon the piece and the
E'.ldio Foy's star has not been in tho
ascendrncy for the past several seasons.
"Off tho Earth" was not a big money
winuer, and then camo that disastrous
undertaking, "Robinson Crusoe.' Last
year Mr. Foy was induced to undertake
tho leading role in "Tho Strange Adven
tures of Miss Brown' in a seond com
pany, and beforo tho Beason was out,

season a company of twenty people. Ho
is making u Birong feature of his band
and orchestra. Tho orchestrn of seven
solo musicians, adding greatly to tho
performance?. He has secured as his
leading lady Miss Carrio Louiy, a mag
netic little comedieno who has made u
strong reputation over tho eastern cir
cuit with her meritorious work. Tho
supporting company is strong in every
particular. Special ittention is given
to the mounting and dressing of tho

His return to burlesque has been sig
nally successful, and his appearauco
last night at the Walnut in a revised
and improved version of. "Off tho Earth"
brought back many of' his old friends to
him, and his performance was certainly
one of tho best of his life.
Foy has been called at:lown. Well,
granted; but he ie tho prince of clowns,
and his fooling is of just tho sort to
please the many, and all fair minded
theatre goers must admit that ho is
alone in this particular i'eld. He pre
tends to nothing; he attempts nothing
beyond hia own capabilities; therefore
none aro deceived. Ho made a fortune
for both David Hendeison and himself
as tho greatest of all burlesque comedi
ans, and with tho improvement" sTiown,
the seriousness of endeavor manifested
in his present work, tho tendency to
curb his former wild caprices, the gener
ous disposition manifested towards
others upon the 6tage, the feeling that
ho is not the "whole show," will speedily
place him among the most profitable
stars now devoted to this sort of work.
