On Wednesday evening April 12th, at the grand opera house, our play going people will have an opportunity to see and hear them. Everywhere the Glee Club went they were received with ecstacies of delight, and the press all along their trail was one continual streatn of praiae. The boys well deserve a rausing reception at home and we believe lt will be accorded them. Remeraber their concert is to be given at University hall on the evening of April 20th- next week Friday. The date for the grand concert by the Ypsilanti and University chorases has been finally decided on. The W. C. T.

There was hardly standing room in the Fifth Avenue Theatre las: night when the curtuin was rung up on Mr. and Mrs. Geo. S. Kuight's new edition of "Over the Garden Wall." It is one of the most amusing absurdities imaginable, and kept the audience In continuous laughter for nearly threo hours. An old theatre oer remurked at the end of the performance "it is without exception the best entertainment of the kind I ever 8aw." And he was right. There is enouh fun condensed Into the piece to satisfy the most cynical.- New York Graphic.

This beautiful llttle entertainment is glven for the benefit of the Woinun'8 Home Missionary Society, and it is hoped that it will be liberally patronized. From the New York Herald of March 23d, we take the following : "That strlng of catchy songs, pretty dances, humorous dialogues and ludlcrous situations called 'Over the Garden Wall" was created for mirrlment only. At the Grand Opera House last nlght it amply accotnplished its purpose. The principal meinbers of tlie cotnpany that appear in it were good from start to tlniíh. Of course Mr. and Mrs. Oeorge 8.
