The audience that witnessed "Nan's
Aero Lot" at the Opera House Thursday
evening of last week was of good sizo but
It was not nearly as large as It should have
been. Tho play Is a good one and was
well rendered by an efficient company.
Tulein, tho accomplished nnd brilliant
little Boubrcttc, as "Nan," by her bright
manners and winning presence took the
audience by storm from the start, and
nearly every one of her song was encored.
Harry Pepper played "Billy Butters" well
and tho remainder of tho company were
well up In their parts. Mr. Pepper has a
magnileent tennr voice nnd his ballad sing
ing and duets with Tuteln were applauded
to the echo. The performance was tho
best that has been seen at tho Opera House
for somo time.
The May number of Harper't Magtuinc Is

less, perhaps, than usual. William Black's

Julia D. Whiting, "An Unpromising Mar.
riage," by Miss Annie Blgelow, daughter of
the Hon. John Blgelow, and "Laraenta

Enerv Stuart, are bright, and contrast
pleasantly with one another. The supply
of pnetiy is proportionate. Miss Rives
contributes somo charming verses asking
"Why?" nnd Richard E. Burton declares
Ihe reasonable Inferences of a certain "If
So." There is a beautiful Illustration for
Wordsworth's sonnet "Mount Sklddaw,"
tho work of Alfred Parsons; while E. A.

The World" with its wealth of magnifl.
cent scenery and company of Chicago fav
oritcs opened a weeks engagement at Hool
ev's Theatre last evening. The home was
filled to Its utmost with the elite of Chicago,
including our ablest and most severe critics
to witness this popular product ot J. Z
Little's gifted pen, which has found such
favor among our theatre goers. What
makes tho "World" so popular and long
lived? Is naturally asked. In reply wo will
say, because there is a purity In the whole
conception of tho piece, which at once
alms at the hearts ot the audience, and the
details, situations, and dialogue have that
naturalness and pleasing air of originality,
It also possesses more scenic features than
any play ever written. Its raft scene has
been admired throughout Europe, Austral.
la and America, and when It comes back to
Chicago again after four years' absence It
Is as realistic and mystifying as before
as is tbo panorama sceno, tho revolving
scene and sinking ship, and all tho other
popular mechanical devices. Tho "World"
has been produced In Chicago thlrty-seven
weeks and the public's verdict of approval
is manifested in the largest house of tho
season pn this the opening of its thirty
eighth, after an absence of four years, J,
