Miss Ober, who begins a week's en
gagement at the Vogt opera house Mon
day night, Nov. 9th, at eastern prices,
10, 20 and 30 cents, and by an eastern
company, will produce comedies, witn
two exceptions, they being "Trilby" and
The Bells." On Monday night that
political satire, 'A Race for Congress"
will be produced. It is a comedy in
three acts, and is said to be very funny.
The Cheyenne, Wyo., Herald of Sept.
18th says of the production of "The

Irving famous :

Ober Co. last night, was without) aloubt
as fine a production as was ever wit

"Matbias," showed himself to be an
actor of such cleverness and ability that
we unhesitatingly predict for him a suc
cess in his theatrical career that is sel

few. From the time he commenced to

last act, he held the audience nnder
such complete control that a pin could

we can only repeat what we said in our

this company is exceedingly clever, and
it will be a long time beiore we will
have a chance of witnessing another as
good. Every piece they have produced
has been a decided success, we under
stand that the piece produced tonight is
equally as good as any that has gone
