Akeley Musicale.

   The first in what we hope will be a numerous series of musicales was given at Akeley last night by Mr. Post and Miss Smith. The affair was an informal one no programs being used. Both Mr. Post and Miss Smith gave selections asked for by members of the audience. All the selections both instrumental and vocal were of a high order. Mr. Post’s numbers covered a wide range, calling for varied methods of execution. Needless to say he rose to the occasion in a superb manner. Miss Smith has a voice of rare sweetness and great strength. Although suffering last night from a severe indisposition she rendered her selections in a charming manner and with a trained expression that excited much praise from the musical critics. The association of Mr. Post and Miss Smith with Akeley will be a source of credit to the Institute, and of pleasure to the people of our city. The only regret expressed by those present was that the hall was so crowded, on account of the alterations which had to be made to accommodate the new pupils, that only a few of those who would have enjoyed the evening could be invited. We look forward to the completion of the new building with much pleasure, on this account if no other.


   The Park Theatre opened auspiciously last night with Little Goldie in "The Rocky Mountain Waif." A first-class company and a good play with an exciting plot. The audience was a tremendous one and not a seat vacant. To say that Little Goldie received a flattering reception and made a decided hit is to barely state the facts. In the three hours occupied by the "Rocky Mountain Waif," consisting of four acts and a prologue, there was scarcely a moment at which the interest was not fully sustained. All the accessories were there. Beautiful scenery of the Rockies taken from Nature, the Wonderful Garden of the Gods, a first-class supporting company, a clever play with an exciting plot, and a genuine Rocky Mountain pony and a burro. It is a pleasure to say that Little Goldie was a gem, sparkling in such a setting with ever increasing brilliancy, and her success is most certainly assured.—Dayton Times, Aug. 11.
