"SEVEN DAYS." To-night, at the Opera House, Mr. Hugh J. Ward and his company inaugurate a farewell visit to Wellington, when they present i'or the first time here the latest farcical .-omedy success, "Seven Days." A Sydney extemporary says : — "Nothing more farcical has been seen in Australia for many a day, and the piece, in addition to its brightness and fun, has a few subtle touches of pathos that throw the comedy into relief. It is one of those plays that set the audience talking after they come out — brimful of humorous situations and sparkling with witty repartee. It is scarcely possible to imagine a mo>e novel situation than a, character who enters with the rise of the curtain, is on the stage through three acts, but who does not speak a word of dialogue until he is wanted to clear the tangle. The principal character in the pjay aie taken by Mr. Hugh J. Ward, as t "!im Wilson, and Miss Grace.
