Miss Gertrude Wade, daughter of Secrelary Wade of the university, took the part of this peculiar youne woman and mstained it in gcod amateur style. A. E. Andereon was the young man who penenoed the uncertainties of the témale mind as given in thig two-aet play. A. L. Free, as the father of this girl, was made up exceedingly well. The comedy was supplied by four characters: Charies Clinton (by W. C. H. Keougb); Hon. Augustus Yswn (by T. N. Jayne). who went to sleep while proposing to Miss Laura ; Torn Tact (by E. H. Smith) and Fanny Fact (by Miss Ida Z. Hibbard). Mr. Smith secured applause for his as-umption of Ifrench speech and airs, and Miss Hibbsrd, as the pretty servant girl, Fanny Faet, who was pertectly willing to accept any eligible man in marriage, did excellently well. In the one-act farce, "A Storm in n Tea-cup," which followed, C. 'i'. Alexander frustained his reputation of beins; a clever amHteur.

The other characters were a servant, sustained 'fcy Miss Ardie E. Clark, and the respected Igther of Mr. and Mis Sumoaerly, taken E. P. de Pont. As is well known the ■whole affair was msnaged by Prof. de ■Pont
