But the first hair of hr en-EAffemeot In " Oxvgvn" at the Chicago Opera Uoum has shown that ber name U still fit to eoo-Juro with, and to outlook for the oomloa week indicates that this will bo on of the many suo-oetses of tha Opera House. It is pretty hard to tell whether tha luridly patriotM drama. - Tha Minute Men Is going to bo one of too snooees of the Grand Ooora Bovml The bouses this weak have been fairly good, though the erltioa bar generally rlreo the drama tho cold shoulder, and It is possible that it will hold on to pub) la favor for a week longer.
