i e Show.
Buckler's Comedy Company
pUyed to a fairly good house last
n;ght, notwithstanding the inclem
ent weather. The title of the play
was "The Wages of Sin." Tbe
characters were well taken and ad
mirably portrayed. Though pay
ing at popular prices, this is no
cheap show there is not a stick in
the company. The music was es
pecially fine, the orchestra being in
charge of Prof. H L Bbker, a cele
brated clarinet soloist.
Your attention is especially called
to the change of play tonight from
"East Lyne" to "Monte Cristo." The
change was fixed upon for satisfac
tory rea8pns today and the audience
may expect a treat new and rare.
