A Great Corned/ Drama, at the Opera House Monday Night. On Monday evening at Dolan's will be presented for the first time In this city the interesting comedy melodrama, "Our Step-Husbandi" The story Is dramatic though raal, the humor Is bright and clear and the pathos pure and touching. It is a play with a strong plot, and the characters true to life. During the brief action of the comedy the author has found time to touch upon many ot the Important scenes of every-day life, and the characters which he has cleverly interwoven In the play are many of them new to the stage. In "Our Step-Husband" we find the struggle between capital and lahor, the wrongs between rich and poor business and social life are delightfully mingled, while the weaknesses and follies of each are brought in touch with the nobler qualities, and "Our Step-Husband" sends you to your homes with the satisfaction of ac evening well speno.
