The Battle Creek people say they are fond of good performances, and enjoy the theater, but kick in a lively manner over giving $1 for a ticket to the ame. In which they are sensible, and all troupes asking $1 admission ought to be "frozo out." There isn't a theatrical compuny or a ooncert company, or any other company in existence that can give a person the value of a dollar for one performance, and mighty few for which even fifty cents would not be a far greater sum than they are worth. Of course people will go, if an actor or actress has been wel! advertisod, but that docsn't alter the facts in the case any. People pay too much money and receive too little in return in the line of trav cling amusements. Thero ought to be a reaction in this respect. Here is a reoeipe for making tattlcrs: Tnke a handful of weed called Runabout, the same qu antity of root called Nimbletongue, a prig of the herb Baok-bite, (eithcr before or after dogdays) a spooofu! of Don't you-tell-it, six draclim of Malioo, a few drociH of Envy, which can be proouredattheshopsof'MiMMTubithaTeaTabloand Miss Nancy Night-walkcr.

A vory large audience assenibled in uuivcrsity hall last Friday night to listen to the Litta concert company. The culture, the fashion, tbc elite, and the mediocrity were well represcoted, and the criticisms upon the entertainment were as mixed as were the tastea of the audience. Upon one point, however, all agreed, that the rendition of ''The Last Rose of Suinmer," by Mille. Litta, was in itself a rich remuneration for the time and money espended in attendiug, and diseloaed a voice of remarkable beauty, clearness and sweetnefs. The writer is frank to confesa that it was superior to anything of the kind he bad ever before listened to. The operatic airs, üt which the vocal portion of the entertainment wasexclusively coiuposod, were highly appreciati'd by musici a na and othera whose taates lie in that direction. Min Hattie McLain has a reiuarkably rich contialto voice, while Cleveland and Grove possess good voioes and rendered their parts well. Mr. Hoffman exeeuted the piano pyroteclinics in a manner commendable. Mr. John Skelton had a cornet which dazzled the eyes of the audience with its pol ished surface, and the manner in which he made the notes chase each other out of the same euchanted the ears of the hearers. He h certaitily ao excellent rtist, and bcing repeatedly enoorcd, the audience evidently appreciated bis cfforts. Taking the concert as a whole, the auditors were evideDtly quite well pleascd, and did not regret attending. The tremendous and long continued applauie which followed the singing of the one American song, proved conclusively to us, however, where tho real taste and tippreciation of the audience la .
