"A Gambler's Daughter."
"A Gambler's Daughter" ia a dramat
ic offering that will doubtless fill Shive
ly'a opera honse to overflowing when
it is produced there next Fridav night,
January 30, as the piece has made an
excellent impression in other cities, and
is in fact one of the distinct hits of the
present theatrical season. Each of the
lour acts of the play ia splendidly staged,
and many of the stage pictures produced
are briliant in the extreme. The third
act ia a reproducti n of a beautiful Mich
igan avenue gambling resort in Chicago,
and it givea the spectator a realistic idea
of the actual appearance of some of
these famous palaces patronized by the
fast and furious set of city life. It ia in
