I 4 Menu AT THE AT THE EUREKA. Under the title 01 "The "Patient's Dream" the Thaten Duo introduced to packed houses on Monday evening a new and high class comedy sketch. The part of the patient is played with his customary ability by Mr. Thaten whilst that of nurse, Japan- ese girl, French girl, western girl, and bride, respectively, are admirably .sustained by Miss Thaten. The changes in the- acl performed by Miss Thaten are remarko.ble indeed nncl exceeding- j ly "clever. The plot of the sketch is briefly the patient, in charge of a nurse, in her temporary absence, dreams of all the j girls ho has ever flirted with and these appear in quick succession be- j fore astonished eye. The effect of this on the patient can be better im- agined than described and the fun that the various situations pro- voke, keeps tho audience in screams of laughter.- Special mention should bo made of the song introduced, en- titled, "There's no Place like the Old Home Town." This fairly brought down the house. This week at the Eureka is certain- ly a dandy and a treat " 710 one should lose the opportunity of parti- cipating in. EARL GREY'S IDEA. Montreal, Dec. the civic reception given tonight to Earl Grey, the latter, speaking of Canada, said nothing could prevent tho country from going ahead if the work of im- proving the transportation routes be- tween the Atlantic and Pacific and the steoinshifr services from Canadian ports, and principally Montreal, worn kept up to meet requirements. Hear the Thatens in their sang, "There's no Place Like the oid Home Town."
