Next Mondav the popular and distin

appear at Ross' Opera house for one
night only in Gilbert's grand comedy

power, has grown more mellow and of
Greater range in the upper register. As
the beautiful Galatea in Gilbert's classic
comedy the charming actress was a reve

gracefully and pleasantly, she unfolded
but little of her power, and that, in the
line of a charming ease and naturalness,
but as the piece progressed, she rose to
and even above the dramatic require

rausio of her voice, the fascination of her
manner, the studied emphasis that gave
point and humor, and her exhibition of
dramatic power and intensity carried the
audience by storm. To describe her
Galatea in detail would but faintly hint
at tho reality f conception and execu
tion. It was all that the most fastidious
could desire loving and tender, sacrific

Rhea was given a warm welcome here.
She has had many admirers in this oity,
and her friends welcomed her with an
enthusiasm which testified to the esteem
in whioh she has always been held in

to recommend it to the poor, dying

as 80,000 dozen bottles were sold last
