The title role was played by Miss Dorofska and one couldn't help but enjoy her light, cleaver jokes and her heartfelt warmth. The young people did. The actress wasn't just good in the playful scenes but also in the serious, highly emotive ones. The woman's performance was excellent. In the role of General von Morin, Mr. Duprez was completely in his environment. He knew how to invoke the tone of the old soldier and the scenes with his son and with the children of Madame Meunier, where he was more father than General were also good; perhaps this performance is one of the best we've seen from Mr. Duprez this season.
Mr. Reuter played his difficult role of Eduard von Morin with understanding and ability, which is all the more noteworthy since many others have not played the role as if they were born for it. Miss Georger played a princess just the way she's represented in a book, giving her all, knowing just the right tone for portraying a vain, proud woman.
Mrs. Becker was just as wonderful as Madame Meunier. Roles of this nature are always good for women. From Miss Wedemeyer we always expect good things and she knew how to evoke gentle humor.
Our own Bruno Sachse naturally had laughter on his side. He had chosen a particularly wonderful mask. The acting was high comedy and caused a storm of laughter. Mr. Fichtel as Hilaire was magnificent. The other roles were unremarkable.
Next Sunday, by popular demand, "A Celebrated Case."
|Fri., Jan. 2, 1891 - Page 2, column 3, bottom|
In reply to your request through your delightful feature "The Mail" addressed to me and to my associates for a repeat performance of "A Celebrated Case", I communicate to you and to the honorable public in general that I can comply with this request and that a repeat performance of the play can be had next Sunday on the 4th of January. It must however be understood that this second performance is not a repetition of the first one but rather an improvement of it.
A $500 Reward will be paid for a case of Inflammatory Rheumatism or some other form of Rheumatism or back pain which Dref's Rheumatic Pills can't heal. These can only be purchased at Charles Dref's Drug Store, Broadway at the corner of Ash Street, the largest drug store in Buffalo.

The goal of the surprise was soon made clear to him when Mr Spencer, the firm's bookkeeper, came forward and gave to Mr. Woeppel from all those present, a diamond lapel pin as a New Years gift. Mr. Spencer accompanied the gift with a pleasant little speech, to which the presentee gave a brief remark. He gave warm thanks for the gift, which he said he took as proof of the good relationship he has with his subordinates. We also think of it as an expression of the most beautiful kind of contentment the worker has with his employer.
