The Wilkinsons
Many of our people will remember Lillie and Charlie Wilkinson, who, with an excellent troupe, played their great specialty, "Uncle Tom's Cabin," here last winter, and will undoubtedly be pleased to learn that they will return here and play "Uncle Tom's Cabin" at the Academy of Music on Friday evening Sept. 19th. The Wilkinsons have a world-wide reputation, and they render this old but never to be worn out play better than any other company in existence. Miss Lillie is undoubtedly the best Topsy in the world, while Charley has played Gumption Cuto since 1853, and has no equal in that role on the state. Little Georgie L. Fox, eight years old, daughter of the lamented G. L Fox, and own cousin to the original Eva, Cordelia Howard, plays the character of that angelic child to perfection. There is a first class company of ladies and gentlemen in support, together with appropriate scenery, music and effects, the whole under the personal direction of Mr. Chas. Wilkinson, the originator of the people's popular prices, General admission, 25 cents; reserved seats, 35 cents. Seats at Allen's bookstore. Music by Andlefinger's full orchestra.

Charlie and Lillie Wilkinson are winning much favor in the New England States with their new play, "Priscilla the Cherub," which they will present in Whitney's Opera House to-morrow (Tuesday) night. It affords ample scope for fun and sentiment, and will be enjoyed by the audience. This play was written expressly for them by E. A. Locke, and is said to be one of the most interesting and popular plays on the state. Lillie Wilkinson as the "Cherub" and Charlie Wilkinson as "Septimus Washington Gill, the lightning rod man" are not to be excelled, and the entertainment will be a pleasing one and worthy of a liberal patronage.
