axchalge- thir a-ar(ed ee-t-
tile privilege of Clntering, thle Troca-
Ietco theater last week were in no w-av
disappointed.  They received from   The
City Sports full value for their money.
'Ihe Mikado's Haren, which served as a
lirst part, was rich in scenery and cos-
tming acluirement and tlie lines and
business xere lively in tle extreme. Bar-
ry Thoimpson and Dick Brown furnished
lauighs by the wholesale, Miss Stanley
teoimplished the unusual by being both
a prima donna of excellent voice and
dancer of skill. She is also the wearer
of sone stunning tlings in the line of
clothes. Another possessor of a sweet
voice is Mattie Wtalsh, who led hr numa-
bers charinngly.
A  lit Of good character acting was
done by Anna Snnette. in the olio, Dick
Brown appeared wxitli some up-to-date
stories and  parodies which were r -
ceived with applause. A humorous and
well-acted  playette  was  put Ot  by
Thompson anid Carter. The act of Mile.
Bartoltti. the premier to- dancer, with
her miusical bell ballet proved highly in-
teresting and a pretty nunber. Several
imitations of popular artists were given

At the Folly, things were culivened by
the Fay Foster Co.    This aggregation
is easily one of the few  best bets it
iirletiue. The action of both Ott Dress
Paiad  and The Yankee Admiral pro-
gissed snppily, and the incidental sing-
ing numbers were pleasantly tuneful.
'le Great Carroll, Harry L. Cooper and
Mliss Glorie Eller, who for the last two
seasons have be-a big favorites in the
Folly Sunner Stock, were enthusiastic-
ally welcomed. All of the principals were
well cast, the chorus was a worthy at-
traction by itself and the costumes and
scen-ary indicated a lavish outlay of real
coin, the outlay, however, heing modified
by good taste. in the olio Miss Lena
Lacouver sang numerous songs in her
own way, which, by the way. was a
pleasng way.  Joe Dillon and   Martz
lioore got the hands with soie songs
and hattadis. Louis & Chapin. with a

Billy K. Wells closed the olio with

stamp. This week, The Dainty Duchess
Evincing their popularity by a return
within a mtonth of their nrst engagement,
the Empire Show   headed by Roger Im-
tof, was the attraction at the Emnire
last week. The show has been wiped
into dramatic consistency, fresh comedy
intrjetcd, and all of the principals are
gaining their points more easily than
on their pervious visit. Roger Imhof is
still the capable comedian that ie has
previously shown himself to be, and the
olio retains the clever p opla. Imhof and
Corinne in in a Strange Hotel; Ed. Johns-
ton and Jeannette Bucklev, the two ex-
treies; Connolly and Klein, singers and
dancers, and Etama W-ston, all contribu-
ted bright maomaents that won favor with
the audience.
