'Palmer Cox's "Brownies" played to
:go:d business at the Oliver Monday
night. The caste is made up of -brownie),
fa) p., imps and a devil all very liptbsr,
and shapely with good chorus vo ca;
and not much histrionic ability. Not
that any body claimed it exempt Gertie
Carlyle who has an eliin trick of singing
and wrigcling that is suggestive of Del
la Fox. The Roinalo Brothers whom the
bill calls "the world's most finished acio
bats and head to head balancers" ate,
for once in a way, exactly w-iat the ad
vance notice cilia them, marvellous
world champions a-d all the rest. The
cenic effects were beautiful and elab
orate and the ballet was composed of
mytholgically beautiful ladies' under
blue, green and yellow lights, well train
ed and hindsomely costumed. Mr. Cox
drew a brownio with the skill of a finish
ed illuslrator. The play is a frame to
which the ballet an 1 spectacles are at
tached. The ensemble is a EUCc3B3ion
of brilliant pictures with an accompai
ment of EongF, dances and turns going
to make one of the most popular shows
on tho. road.
Lexis Morrison at tne Fuake played
on Thursday n'ght to a house not as
Urge as the ona thit usually grests him
here, but it was a more than representa
The play is a melodrama sot in chintz
cuitiicB, diamond shaped pane.?, family
portraits in tarnish'd gold frames and
the elaborate, graceful and picturesque
manners and co-tunrs of the XVIII
century. The courtesy and deference
paid the women in the 'Master of Cere
monies" saddens occ as evidences of a
lost art will always do. But the play
itielf, without being especially original
is basjd oa tho primi ive pa:siocs of
love and cupidity, it developes harmon
iously and increjs;s in power to the .cli
max in the third act. 'J he company is
composed of bandssme men aod pretty
women with well modulated voices
They wear costumes and gowns with
rase and breeding. Taken altogether
the.c mpany is like one of the best train
ed ttock companies. Mr. Morrison him
rolf is a thorough actor. Like Irving, he
has gained a reputation for staging a
play faultlessly. He understands the
soothing effect of a company of real
actors harmani)U3!y comp:ajJ in a dra
matic picture. The costume, scenery
and manners have a literary verisi
militude to the eighteenth csntury not
broken in upon except by one or two
lapses into nineteenth century self con
sciousness in the course of tbe evenirg.
Asforinst8nc3 when in the trial scene
Mies Florence Roberts, loath to deprive
the audienca of a full face view even for
a few moments, turns her back upon tho
barrister who is questioning her and up
on the judge who is endeavoring to hear
her testimony, tier's ip a very pretty
face and figure and she is lobs pardoned
for thinking a full face view the bf st for
the audiencs but it mare the effect of
the trial ncene and ought t be revised
by the stage manager. Another injustice
to the eighteenth century is when Mr
Ch&. Willard winks at the audience.
He only does it once and is otherwise so
delightful and so ugly rotund a little
man, with such natural ways and with
11 original with a flavor loved by a con
noisenr tnit we could forgive him much
more. Mrs. Selby Teotfield played hfr
sublimated Mre. Caudle pait with spi it
and immediate response from the audi
ence - isB Florence Rjberts is very
pretty and a gocd dresser but she lacks
lemperament. I could not get interested
in her. Miss Florence Brooks as Lat'y
Teigne was tuperbly made up. A lilte,
stingy old dowager, Ehe made a lasting
impression in her five minu'es on the
stige. Mr. White Whittlesy 13 hand
some and has a figure that was excuse
enough for joining the army and getting
into white and red very ticht fitting.
I hops Mr. Morrison will repeat the
"Master of Ceremonies" when he cornea
again. And if the people cari for merit
ant. a conscientious attention to detail
Mr. Carter will hang out the "'standing
100m only" sign when Mr. Morrison re
turns on the :21st from Denver.
