One of the most masterly cf
Shakespear's productions so far as
tho portrayal of human feeling is
concerned, is the letter scene in
Macbeth. Rose Eytinge has play
ed the part in some of the greatest
casts of the times during the past
25 years, and from border to border
of the United States, and in Lon
don. Her portrayal of the scene
has contributed as much as any
thing else to her great renown, and
is one of the greatest of which Miss
Eytinge is capable. Seats for the

bany is far stronger this year accord

last year and the prediction is made
that the contest tomorrow night
will be well worth seeing. The
following is the personnel of our
team: Spires, center; Burns, (capt.)
and J Rooper, forwards; H. Rooper
and Coiwell, guards; substitutes,
Hortou and Bartlett. H. Rooper
and (Jolwell are substitutes on the
first team. Beyond doubt this will
p ove a spirited contest.
The two boys who plead guilty
to the charge of breaking the globes
of street lights, as reported in our
last issue, were hailed before Police
Judge Yates, Tuesday morning, for
sentence. They were sentenced to
a fine of $10 each, or five days in
the city jail. Owing to circum
stances over which the boys had no
control thoy accepted tbe latter
alternative and are now in durance
vile for five days. With good be
havior thy will breath the air nf
freedom in time for Sunday dinner.
It is sincerely hoped that this les
son may not be lost on these lads
and that other boys about town
may profit by their experience.
