John T. Raymond will produce a new play next season, "Senator Silverbags."

Sarah Bernhardt's husband proves to have been a very bad actor at Spanish theatres, some years ago.

Joseph Wheelock declined an offer to support Clara Morris in Cazauran's new play, "The Madding Crowd."

Modjeska has requested her manager to see that the best possible orchestras are employed on the evenings that she appears, in her trip through America next season.

In a recent advertisement in a Paris paper for filles de ballet for the leading vaudeville theatre, it is stipulated that the candidates should not be over fifteen years old and should be accompanied at every performance by mother or sister.

Mlle. Rhea took the people of Cincinnati by storm. The theatre was crowded nightly to witness her performances and the critics pronounced her the finest actress even in America. It is told us by one who has recently seen her performance of "Adrienne," that she shows a remarkable improvement in her acting since her inauspicious career in Boston, but her pronunciation is still seriously at fault.

Harry Eytinge indorses Hill's embryo actress, Margaret Mather, in this wild fashion: "This peerless phenomenon of the universe will bring a new heavenly revelation to men wherever the language is spoken, and make histrionism reign the empress of all created hearts throughout the limits of civilization." The truth is, that Miss Mather is simply a fair actress, with a handsome face and form. She has been very carefully trained, in fact over-trained, and while she does possess a little talent, she is devoid of the fire of genius, as Mary Anderson. Miss Mather is designed by her managers to burst upon the astonished gaze of the American public with all the effulgence of last year's comet; but we fear that with whatever eclat her advent is heralded, she will fail utterly to dazzle her beholders.
