Mr. R. T. Farrand was called upon to-day and gave some valuable information in regard to the coming Base-Ball Minstrels. Hé reports that constant practice has been going on at the orchestra hall, that the dancers, acrobats and specialty ,men are training faithfully. The banjo quintette, under, the direction of Prof. Haug, has been drilling for a number of weeks, and some very fine playing may be expected from them. Yhe costumes for the skirt dancers are very elegant, and these, as in fac't all the costumes, are the property of the company, and are made from original designs. Dress rehearsals will begin next week. The afterpiece is a burlesque and as it is gotten up by a writer of considerable reputation, will be entirely new and very fine. Mr. Farrand wishes to state that while the program is full of wit from beginning to end, personal allusions are entirely left out, and that no one need feel afraid of being "ground." The Faculty have granted permission to the manager to take the troupe out of the city. They appear at Ypsilanti, Saturday, May 16, at Ann Arbor, Thursday, May 21, and at Detroit under the auspices of the D. A. C. on May 23. There they will be asslsted by the D. A. C.
