"Audrey," at the Madison Square, in which Eleanor Robson has the title role, is proving an exceptionally strong pro duction, and has continued to draw large houses from the start. Mabelle Gilman is making such a dis tinct hit at the Bijou in "The Mocking Bird," that she expects to remain in New York indefinitely. The two other musical shows, "The Silver Slipper," at the Broadway, and "Sally in Our Alley." at the New York, are both enjoying great popularity. Aubrey Bouclcault, with "Heidelberg," will soon succeed "Weedon Grossmith at the Princess, where "The Night of the Party" has been a charming attraction for the past three months. J. K. Hacketfs "Crisis" is proving one of the strongest things he has yet done, and the noted star's performances are attended nightly by the most critical audiences. At Mrs. Osborne's "Fad and Folly" has demonstrated itself an easy winner. This has come to be the favorite resort for society women who like to see the glass held up to nature, and their own frallitles made the butt of the player's satire and the public scorn. "Ninety and Nine" continues more than a ninety days' wonder at the Acad emy, where it is packing the house in a phenomenal way. - "Der Kuss" has been successfully pro duced by Manager Conried at the Irving Place theatre. The play ranks high In Hungarian literature. It is a romantic comedy, with an absorbing plot and po etic dialogue. It is handsomely present ed by a strong cast The Circle theatre has opened with an excellent stock company, which will pre sent a new bill each week. Miss Bijou Fernondez Is the leading lady, and a suc cession of strong Broadway successes Is to be produced. Miss Elizabeth Tyree began rehearsals for "Gretna Green," the romantic com edy by Grace Livingston Furnlss, in which Miss Tyree will make her first ap pearance as a star at the Madison Square theatre on January 5th. Miss Tyree's company includes Scott Craven, prances Gaunt, Robert Hickman, Eva Vincent, Frank Matthieu, Georgie Lawrence, Robert Broderlck, Harris Forbes and others. At the American theatre the attraction for next week Is "Slaves of Russia," a powerful melodrama. E. H. Sothern's impending production of "Hamlet," to take place at the Garden theatre. New York, Dec 29th, Sir Henry Irving has released Miss Celia Loftus, who 'had been playing with him for a year in England. She will play the part of Ophelia. Miss Loftus, since she has appeared in vaudeville shows at 11,000 a week, later in Daniel Frohman's com pany, at Daly's theatre, subsequently with E. H. Sothern, and last year with Sir Henry Irving in England, has devel oped into an actress of admirable qual ities. "My Friend From India," "As You Like It," and "Cleopatra" are among the forthcoming productions at the Colum bia theatre, Brooklyn, where the new stock company Is meeting with much success. The headline act at Keith's for the coming week will be one of especial In terest to the children. This Is Techow's wonderful performing cats, who give a' truly marvelous exhibition of feline In telligence. Cushman, Holcomb and Cur tis present a very laughable singing sketch entitled "The New Teacher," which affords these three clever people ample opportunity for the display of their talents In the lines of both music and comedy. HERBERT E. CLAMP. & & & A friend of mine who was at dinner with me one evening, making his way homeward with some difficulty, came in contact with a tree, the only tree In the street. He fell backward a step. then returned to the effort, and met the tree again. This time he sat upon the sidewalk and put both hands to his head and cried: "Lost! lost! lost! in an Impenetrable forest." nr 7P nf Little Elsie anxiously Santa Claus does not go around In an automobile, does he, mamma? Mamma "Why, certainly not, he atlll drives his reindeer. Little Elsie, with a sigh of relief Oh, I'm so glad. Tommy told me he used an automobile and I know there are no repair shops open at night. "Oh, no," said the wise and worldly minded husband to the friend of his bachelor days, "I never smoke the cigars my wife gives me on Christmas. You see I" the lid of his left eye lay dead on his cheek for a brief fraction of time "I know the ropes." Mabel Do you expect many Christmas presents this year, dear? Maude Not many; you see all the pa pers published an account of papa's failure last week. ft "Does he claim to know much about women?" "No; he says they are beyond his comprehension."

The shelling of the fortification of this place has provoked a great deal of adverse criticism In "Washington and some of the European capitals. Even in London the general opinion holds that the step was unnecessarily harsh and sever. The citizens of Puerto Cabello are still In a state of howling Indignation at the summary measure.
