But "tattooed Bessie" took it all good imturerily. for if her associates found so much -amusement, in her appearance certainly the public would receive her efforts with approbation.

Winnipeg, April 6.-Free Press prints a -The Winnipeg despatch from A great attraction has been booked for theatregoers, as the "Volunteer" makes a special return engagement here next Monday, April 8. This company of talente I -veterans of the war have been In -k-td for a tour over the Internationa! circuit, and all tin; | principal cities of Canada and the ; United States are included in the itinerary. The "Volunteer" is the greatest laugh producer that lias been seen for many years; the drollery of the irrepressible Irishman, Matt Murphy, will long be remembered by those who saw the performance here, and the rollicking trench songs and choruses | and the tuneful solos and quartettes are yet being whistled on our streets. .The press of the west has paid higher compliments to this company than has been its wont for some time, but it has the decided merit of deserving it. The entire cast of the "Volunteer" are veterans of the great war who have been gathered together at great expense by the author to faithfully reproduce tile characters in his story. These .actor-veterans live the life "over yonder" at every performance, and the audience are thus privileged to see soldier life as it really is, and not the vivid vaporings of a playwright who gleans his military experience from the pages of a daily paper.

What the Press Agents Say AT THE EMPRESS PETROVA AT THE EMPRESS MONDAY Mjne. Petrova, who will be seen In "The Light Within," at the Empress theatre next Monday, is credited with having thp most eloquent face of any of the prominent feminine stars. She does not have to resort to the staring eyes and grimaces usually considered necessary to register the stronger emotions. In one of the final scenes of the drama she is anxiously watching at the beside of the man she loves. It Is a battle for life or death she has waged for lxlin. Finally, her hand on his pulse, she looks the audience straight In the eyes-and without siib-title or any explanatory gestures we know the, patient will live.
