nesday Dec. 22. are: The Sweet
Girl Graduates, the Corsican Belles;
The Grand Opera Priina Donnas,
and The Candler Light Girls. The

effect, suggesting something of the
effect of an illuminated Rembrandt
Jjfcnorama. The girls are presented
before a scarlet curtain, all lights of
tJilftlieatre being reduced until the
curtain is fairly in shadow. In
single file, the girls appear from the
wings and cross the stage in front
of the curtain, their nether portions
lost in blockness and their faces
brought into striking relief by tiny
lights in the shape of roses .that
they carry, which they switch off
and on with fairy-like effect. This
