Frank Tucker. All of next week, commencing Monday evening, Frank Tucker's repertoire company will occupy the boards at the opera house. Concerning the company the St. Joseph Press says:' Frank Tucker's Metropolitan comedy company opened their week's engagement at Martin's Academy Monday night in the excellent comedy drama, "A Noble Outcast," with Mr. Tucker in the leading role* There was » good sized audience in attendance and every one WM most agreeably surprised by the really fine dramatic treat that was given them. The company is for above the average traveling troupe pi dying in repertoire, and in Hr. Tucker we have an actor who is excelled by none in his particular line of dramatic work.. In the character of the outcast, or tramp, which he essayed on Monday night, there was nothing to criticise. His every move, gesture, word and look, together with his make tip and dress, betoken the genuine vagrant who had sunk to the lowest depths to which one ostracised from society and poisoned by drink could be brought; still he retained in all his misery and degradation that noble virtue of honer to wards every fellow being' and herein lay the charm of Mr. Tucker's commendable work. The play has a well denned plot and is very interesting all through. Mr. Tucker is ably supported by 8. B. Robinson, a former well known Block actor, Tony West, the popular young player, who has appeared here many times, M. B. Streeter, Chas. Gould, Will Button, Ethel Tucker, Carrie West and Isabella Fletcher, all excellent in their parts. 'Our theatre goers may rest assured of a week of extraordinary good dramatic productions and the company deserve a liberal patronage.
