It s unnecessary to write any introduction of Maggie Mitchell, she is so well known and sucli a general farorite with our people. The many kind and pleasing things said of her by the newspapers of the country would fill columns, but t 8eems superfluous to quote them. It might not be entirely out of place to give thls paragraph, however, trom the liouisville Commercial : " The story, its scènes and characters are only what this little being, the center-piece of the frnmework, makes them. She is lts soul, its mind, its being." And anotlier paper says tliia: " Maggie Mitchell bas not changed. She is the same memory's dear Maggie Mitchell that she alwuys bas been." Among the good things said of Maggie Mitchell we quote these complimentary words : "She Is lookcd for each successive season just as the season's first, purest and freshest flowers - never tiring of their aroma, their brightness." Go and hear her at the grand opera house next week Wednesday evening in her .great success, Fanchon, the Cricket.
