Remember The Professor, at the grane opera house Friday evening. What's the matter wlth the galleries (uiet mul geutlemauly as ouo could asl for? Is it possible?- but no, we'll no build castles in the air about those galler les. The New Kugland tea party, wliich was to be given at the M. E. church, has been postponed until some future time, because of the death of a sister of the pa6tor, Rev W. W. Ramsay. "What Shall we do with Him ? Why put him in your pocket, if he is a 50 cent piece, and buy a ticket with him to hear Judge Tourgee teil you what else to do with him on Friday night, at university hall. The young ladies' society of St. Andrew's church, are to hold a sale on Weducsday evening, Dec. 9th, at Fireman's hall. Supper at 6 o'clock. Sale to conunence at 1% o'clock. Thls will be something our people will want to patronize. The Professor, which will greet an Ann Arbor audience for the flrst time at the grand opera house Friday evening iicxt, is one of the few plays that has created a sensation among thb theatre going people of the great metropolis of New York. lt is full of startling and pleaslng situations, and the company to play here is a flrst-class one. The enthusiasm, Tigor and precisión which cliaracterize the playing of the Hungarian Gypsy Band, are most remarkable. The New Jersey Argus says that "The audience sat spell-bound, and as the final note died away there was a deafcnlng outburst of applauee.'' Mild and startling are the rhapsodies and Efoagariai tunes; the players giveu a chana quite unique, and the national dance, the csardas, especially arouses everywhere storms of applausea and re:eated encores. Boards open Friday, December 7th. The people of Ann Arbor would do well to remember the dedicatory ceremoliesof Beethoven hall, corner of Washugton and Second sts., which takes place to-morrow night, at 8 o'clock p. va. The eommitees having the arrangements in &arge are preparing for a grand affair, md the program gives promise of a musical treat, full of good things for those vho love music. Among the other atractlons is Mr. Win. Luderer of Detroit, and also the Orpheus String Orchestra, composcd of tifteen of Detroit' best nusicians. Concert will comuience at 8 o'clock p. iu., and the adtnission fee will e 35 cents. The Hungarian Gypsy Band which is o appear on the 7th of December in Jniversity Hall, will be perhaps the greatest attraction of the season, superior to the "Ked Hussars" which won uch enthusiastie applauses a few'years ago. The band consists of 13 true Gypics; their music is unlike any music we ire accustomed to hear, and is particuurly fasciuating. The Gypsies came for he fint time in 1883, to play in Boston md have since been in Hungary where hey fonued the ordinary orchestra of Yrchduke Joseph. One of the native iistruments, the Címbalo, especially proluces tones of wonderful sweetness; and s the one ueed to lead the dances of the ouiury peuple. nra i....a .. n ,,„r... jut once, being on their way back to lungary and is not likely to come again o America for many yeais. Friday evening, December 4th, at the jrand opera house, appear one of the est companies on the road, with the celebrated actor, James O. Barrows, in Gil. ette'Bffrett comedy, The Professor. They ire direct from the Madison Square Theitre, New York City, where the very gruutest of success has been had. Of bil play the Springtield (111.,) Register says: We must confesa that we have never been n love with "The Professor" untll we saw tlie dlfference betweea a fat, Jollv, goodïatured gentleman' renditlon of the oharacter, and the tall, angulated New England type of Purllanlo, "matter-offactness," maulestly the dlfference between Mr. Barrowi and hls only competitor, Mr. Gillette. With th tirst Is biought out all the pathos and sublime lnsplratlon of the play, whlle, with the iatter, the forma and natural frlgldltyof the artist forblds auch a conception. Wlth Mr. Barrows, The Professor ia a real, Uve, actuallty," and, with the other, an lnsipld creatlou. "Ualsy Brown," Miss Kitty Cheatïam, Is unsurpassed. Miss Woltz is a most splendld "Mrs. Elllott,'' nnd the balance of tlie characters, Beauregard Thompkins, Qusavus, Estelle, " Old Browne.'1 "Annie," Orace Uray," and 'Heury Maratón," are abiy sustaiued by Mr. J. E. Kellard, Mr. J. E. Irving, Mr. Joe Physico, and Mlnnle Wood. lt is a lovely play, and, with thia cast, is as pleasing. Friday evening, Dec. 4, Judge Tourgee, who woke up one morning and found ïimself famous as an author, will lecture at university hall before the Student's Lecture Association, bis subject being 'What shall we do with Him?" a question that can be answered inore intelligi)ly perhaps, after hearing the lecture and tinding out who "Him" is. Nevertheless the public generally will want to ïear the author of "The Fool's Errand," md "Bricks without Straws." The man who hns the ability to write such works as those must have the power to say something to an audience that will interest and instruct. The remarkably low price of admission given by the Student's Lecture Association to all of these high riced lectures makes them deserving of patronage, and it is no wonder that icople come from many miles around to liear these tamous men. KINK NOTES. Miss Florence Foster received the medal last Saturday, for graceful skating. The invitatlous for the masquerade have been sent out, and a large attendance is expected. Parties will be present from Detroit, Ypsilanti and Saline. Thanksgiviug evening Master Paddock drew a large audience to witness his exhibition of fancy skating. "Too cute for anything" was the verdict rendered by the audience.
