   The Rocky Mountain Waif attracted a fair sized audience at the Opera House Saturday Evening. Little Goldie, the heroine, played her parts in a fine and pleasing manner and produced a decided hit. Kitty O’Conor, an Irish maid, was encored several times after the singing of a lively Irish song. Though something of a wild west order there is nothing degrading about the play, and the audience were well repaid and declare it a lolla.

   At the Opera House tonight, Augustine Neuville, and a good company, will present "The ‘new’ Boy Tramp." The play is of the comedy drama order and abounds in strong telling situations, which are highlighted by realistic scenery and thrilling climaxes. The scenery is all carried by the company and includes a facsimile of the great East river bridge, the Passaic falls by moonlight, the interior of the insane asylum on Blackwell’s island, showing New York city and Brooklyn in the distance, etc. the star is Augustine Neuville, a comedian whose merits are well known. As Jack Sharp he is seen as his best, and is a continual fund for humor and laughter. The supporting company is above the average and includes a number of well-known footlight favorites.


   Several young men of this city met at the old band rooms of the Grand Haven Silver Coronet band last evening and took the necessary steps towards organizing what will probably be known as the Young Men’s Social Band. The object of the new band will be to acquire proficiency in music and the enjoyment of the sociability connected with such an organization.
