Roland Reed and his excellent com
stay played to a not over-crowded bouse
oa Monday evening. Mr. Beed shares
With. Ebl Smith Russell an especial pop
ularity here. Lincoln audiences feel
personally interested in him and like
bin. He k generally called before the
curtain, as he was on Monday, to make
a speech full of puns and reciprocal good
feeling. Isadora Rush was, as usual,
richly gowned in the best taste. Her
figure is beautiful, but her carriage is
bad, and her gestures are surprisingly
crude. Her voice has suffered from the
strata which seems to attack most ac
tresses' voices after they have been on
the stage for long. A few like Mod jeska
aad Julia Marlowe retain a flexible mus
ical feminine, speaking voice but the
melting tender voice is so rare upon the
rtage that the first liquid notes of a real
voice pronouncing the simplest Words

The play The Voyagers is a mild com
edy with a half-breed villain, a new
wosaan heroine and a Roland Reed hero.
The company's chief fault is enuncia
tion. From the star to the bell boy they
poke against time so rapidly and with
so many elisions that many of the best
jokes never reached the audience. The
scenery was fitting and left nothing to
be desired, which is better than thought
leas aud inappropriate magnificence.
Mr. Robert Cotton stands higher on the
stage than any other American actor.

Especial attention was given to the

vided for the artists. The Bea9on was
opened at the Harlem opera house in
