Lots of I" i n. The entertainment
at the Opera House on Monthly ami
Tuesday nights more than met the
cxnect-itions of tlie lame audiences in
attendance. The proprietor, Dr. Has
kell, lias ac (iitred a great reputation as
an orator, and dining the last tivq
years has doubtless accomplished much
good through his lectures on tern-
perauce. But as there was absolutely
no money in this free lecturing httsi
ness, the Doctor soon found his ex
chequer running loy. and to enable
iiitn to do good and still not beggar
himself, he gathered around him his
present company of choice artists, each
a host in his or her line, and while
preaching against intemperance and
kindred vices, endeavors to instruct
and entertain tlie public in such a
manner as will give the most perfect
satisfaction, while' the financial aid
tints obtained enables the Dr. to carry
out his philanthropic schemes. Dr.
Haskell is assisted by Prof. Steele, a
magnificent vocalist, and one ot the
best cornetists in the country; Mr.
Hardinge, also n fine vocalist and eon
ceitinist; Miss Clara Hardinge, the
wonderful child pianist and spiritual
istic phenomena ; and last, though by
no means least, Zamloeh, the noted
prestidigitnteur. But the mechanical
automata, those wonderful miniature
men and women, that leaped and
danced and cut up all kinds of shindies,
without any visible aid, captured the
audience, and during their performance
the said audience was in a perfect
frenzy of delight. Not the least en
tertaining part of the entertainment
was the gifts distributed at the close.
At the door each ticket-holder was
presented with an envelope contain
ing a number. At the close of the
performances, a child was chosen trom
the audience, taken upon the platform,
where a hat was placed in his hands
containing twenty-five slips of paper,
upon each of which a number was
written : the little fellow drew the
slips from the hat one hy one, the first
slip drawn taking the first prize, and
so on. The first number drawn was
20. entitling the holder to $10 cash.
V. It. Cannon was the lucky man.
Claib Stewart drew a stick of rlonr, R.
Cheadle a sack ot Salt, Harry Godley
a bottle of ink, Mrs. Walter Monteith
set glass tumblers, and then came a
broom, can of honey, paper of coffee,
pocket knife, set cups and saucers,
har of soap, can of peaches, etc., drawn,
by different persons in the audience.
The entertainment was well received
throughout, and the only draw back
we heard mentioned was the lack of
sufficient fire in the heating apparatus
to keep the hall warm.
