A crowded house assembled at the rooms of the above club on Monday evening to witness the production of a couple of comedies « Written in Sand' and ' The Ugly Customer' —which the dramatic portion of the club had had in constant rehearsal for the past few weeks. For the-first were cast Misses Shelton and M. Osten, and Messrs J. Johnson, C. Hiniz, and M. Pierce; while in the latter Misses M. and A. Millea, and R. c» te , D ' ?' E - Gardn er, and F. Himmel failed the several characters. The several members acquitted themselves in a very creditable manner, and it would be impossible to individualise any one of the performers. A new stage had been erected and, backed up with new scenery specially painted by the club'-s scenic artist (Mr T. J. Mills), gave the hall quite a professional appearance. We have before suggested to our " Germania " friends the advisability of making their productions more popular, and we think the time is now ripe when they should place their services before the outside public, who would not be slow to show their appreciation of the club's portrayal of dramatic art. Previous to the raising of the curtain an overtnre was played by Miss S. Himmel (violin) and Mr W. Himmel (piano), while during the interval Mr W. Sinclair gave a selection on the piano.
