The representativa of that eminent ■ comedian, "Tiin Mnrphy," who will ] appear at tbe Grand opera house, Feb. ' 3, very oleverly illnstrates that old ' adage "If you ory you cry alone," bnt, ' 'If you laugh the wbole world langhs 1 with yon." And I don'fc think there 1 are auy class of people who so ' onghly onderstand the bright and dark ' shades of life as does the actor. He sees ! ;he world more thoroughly as his ; els touch almost every part of tbe globe, and as a oonsequence, he comes in ' act daily witb every creed, nationality and condition of people, and Mr. Mnr)by appreciating this universal state of ' iffairs has devised a unique ' ment, con6isting of a doublé bill comirising two entirely different stamps of amusement, whioh he will present at each performance, one a pathetioally ïumorous comedv in three acts, devised culled and adapted for the sole purpose of„brightening the most downcast heart and weary brain. A droll feast palatable to the most fastidious, entitled 'Old Innocence" a comedy claimed by many prominent critica to afford Mr. Murpby more scope for his characteristic, natural born humor than his late creation of "Maverick Brander" in "A Texas Steer," and the other dramatic novelty "Sir Henry Hypnntized," so unlike anytbing we have seen. One of the sensational successes of last season was the Italian artist, "Fregilo," who impersonates several charai-iers in the same play, and as be was the New York fad, tbose who saw him would applaud altbongh they would uuöerstand but little of what he would say or do, but in "Sir Heury Hypnotized," Mr. Murpby impersonates eight distinct characters, all of which are familiar to the average theatre-goer. The performance as reviewed by the Detroit Free Press is most wonderful, and snrnames "Tim" the "nineteenth centuty David Garrick." The characteis include Hinry Irving as "Mathias"; Josfeph Jefferson as "Bob Acres;" John T. Raymond as ''Gol. Mulberry Sellers;" Lawrence Barrett as "Cassius;" Sol Smith Rnssell as "Noah Vale;" Stewart Robson as "Bertie, the Lamb;" William .T. Bryau and our future president, William McKinley.
