Fox's Illustrated Week's Doings is the neweat novelty in metropolitan journalism. It is the onlj Illustrated Sunday Paper in the country and as far as we know the first. If it is, there never was more creditable pioneer in journalism published. The ilustrations ai e graphic in character.appropriate in selection and superb in execution, and the literary contents of a high order of merit. The Referee discourses on sporting matters with authority. The dramatic world is reviewed with snap and vigor by an "Insider," who evidently has a right to the name. And the Prowler recites the current sensations and seandals like a true man about town. The Illustrated Week's Doingahas a career before it if Mr. Fox's efficiënt management does not relax.

The actual number of paid admissions feil few short of 1,900. The troupe fully sustained its excellent reputation won on formar visita to Wilmington, and gave a first class performance containing many novelties, and kept the audience in continual roars of laughter. Torn Warfield and rohie White rank among the best end men in the country, and both were heartily encored whenever they appeared. The character sketches, specialities and the music.both vocal and instrumental, were superior to those presented by any similar organization whioh has ever appeared here. We may add that this troupe is by odds better now than at any previous time since its orgmization, and its members will do their best to amuse and interest our people this evening.
