"She" s i taking plny. Wlien She comes }fo and aee She by al! nieang. Scanlan's lust compogition, "ftathering tlie myrtle with Mary," bids fair to rival bis fauious "Peek-a-i$oo" in popularity. It is surprising how Scanlan's famons song of Peek-aBoo still retains itg hold upon the public. He is compelled to ging it at every performance, and it is nlwayg redemnnded. Uemember the strawberry and ice cream festival at the M. E. church, Thursday evening, May 24th. Among the attractions at thls festival will be a "candy kitchen," candies mude to order.

It has been the piece de resistance of their repertoire during thelr tour, and has drawn packed houses whereverproduced. Mr. Brady is indefatigable in his bus! íess and has beíun to reap the harvest, oth in honors and the dollars of our addies. Close ittention has been given 0 details, and Mr. Brady certainly has ie best dramatizaron of the book. After witnes8ing the play we can undertard the great success of the piece wherver presented. If Mr. Brady keep on 1 the road he has mapped out for bimelf he will soon " win his spurs." One of the great newspapers of the Pacific slope is the Sun Francisco Alta, and of the {{WU pcrformunce known as' Win. A.

Thcre ia a curious ciistotn in Canada well worth initating. It would be a good thing for the actor, public and manager If t existed in every lown and city in the country.

His songs were repeutedly encored duiing the evening, and ha was cilled before the curtain at the end of every act. He was naturally deltghted with such a reception from a Canailian Hiidiencc, who seldom receive with favor a delineator of the Irish character. The happy comedian was not prepared, howevcr, for what awaited him. At the end of the performance as the cnrtaiu was about to descend, the audleoce Brse en innsse plioutlug, "Come agaln, SSanlan; come again." He answered pleasantly, "Thank you, I will." As he lcft the stage ho remaiked to his manager, "That's a queer cuntom, but a good one." The people you have been trying to please all the evening let you know whether you have succeeded" or not. I wish they would do the sanie thing every where. Since theu Mr Scanlan has frequently appeared in Hamilton, and on no occasion has the theaire been large enough to hold the people.
