Tonight at the Oliver is to be pre
sented by Charles Frobman's company,
The Little Minister.' This is the play
adapted from Barrie'e famous novel of
the same name. Thosn who have seen
the dramatization state that Mr. Barrie
has made a remarkable and nightly en
tertaining play. He has retained many
of the Btrocg incidents, and introduced
all the peculiar character types shown
in his novel.
It'is a marvelous stage creation that
can keep an audience of playgoers on
the verge of tears for two houre and a
half and preserve them from weeping
simply by making them laugh. Such is
the character of Noah Vale in Sol
Smith Russell's charming play, "A Poor
Relation," which comes to the Oliver on
next Monday night. Frank Keenan
depicts the role with exquisite finish.
Manager Fred G. Berger carries the
same scenery, properties, etc, used by
Mr. Russell himself and a company su
perior to any that has yet appeared in
the piece including Mieses Maud Ab
bott, Kate Long, Fanny Barry Sprague,
Katberine Dooling, and the two little
children Hip and Patch; Messrs. Geo. R.
Sprague. Geo B. Miller, Marcus Mori
arty, John Cumberland and Charles
Last Year's Tailor-Made Gowns.
"If jou have a tailor made gown have
it remodeled for the early spring days,
and wait until later in the season to
purchase your bes gown," writes Emma
M. Hooper in the February Ladies'
Home Journal. "If your gown was
bought within a year it is probably
made severely plain, in which case it
may be trimmed vith bands of taffeta
two inches wide, either black or the
eolor cf the gown. The bands should be
cut a true bips or be curved to fit the
skirt perfectly. Line each baud with
thin crinoline, stitch five times, turn in
the edgea narrowly and stitch them to
the skirt. The lower of the two bands
should be set two inches above the edge
of the skirt. If a fresh binding is
ueeded put it on, and if the skirt is in
tended for general wear make it so that
it will escape the ground. A dust ruf
fle of toff'ta silk cut bias and made
about seven inches wid- finished with a
narrow hem and put on with a tiny erect
heading, will very much improve the
appearaoce of the skirt. The ruffle
should be ouce and a half as full as the
skirt, and should bo sewed on about
half an inch above the binding on the
insiJe of the skirt. It the skirt is to be
rehung the bacK may be made in an in
verted box plait, or laid in fan plaits, or
the f ullness may be tucked lengthwise
across the back to a depth of six inches,
and a width of five in the belt."'

come in this city last season, will reap
pear at the Oliver on February 7.h.
