The play went with a swing and a dash, with most pleasing effect, and the pretty and taking music of the "Geisha" was done ample justice to. It was a piece which was well worth going to see, and fully lived up to the reputation made by what may well be called the favorite^ company of Lethbridge playgoers. The performers must have evidently worked bard during the rehearsals in the weelc, and the outcome well re-. iiairt them in the very sincere appro-1 batlon in which the piece was received. There was nothing wanting in the play in its general get-up. It was gorgeously and elaborately put on, without evidently a thought for expense. The result was a beautiful color scheme, with singing and acting in keeping with the atmosphere. The "Geisha" is a popular play, and it gained in popularity iuHho way it was put on and in the way it was played by the Stuart-Whyte company. The part of O. Mimosa San, the chief |- Geisha, was excellently portrayed by Miss Kitty Arthur, with very tuneful voice and witli very taking manner. Miss Zara Clinton found herself at home in the part of Molly. Seamore, with a song, such as "Yorkshire," which reminded one of tlie role she has been accustomed to be seen in.
