ELECTRIC THEATRE.—It is the general opmion among the patrons at the Theatre that the pro- gramme of this week is a "star" one, and full houses have been the result, mainly due to two artistes who are on the bill there; Miss Gretas Richards, the dainty soprano, whose beautifully clear voice is well displayed in several numbers from her repertoire, is accompanied with magni- ficent art pictures which are pourtrayed on the screen. Miss Gretta Richards's singing is of a. very high standard, and she is repeatedly encored nightly. Therefore, lovers of music should not fail to hear her! Mr Frank French, the talkative entertainer has met with an enormous reception, and is, without a doubt. an artiste far above the usual. His performance from start to finish is clever and refined, and his opening comedy mono- logue is greeted with roars of laughter. His stor- ies are also witty, whilst his songs are very smart and meet with much success. Changing from comedy to dramatic, one hears him to an advan- tage in the great patriotic monologue. "Business as Usual." Mr French has devoted the proceeds from the sale of this monologue to the purchase of cigarettes and tobacco for our brave soldiers and sailors at the front. Mr French has also received many letters of appreciation from notabilities, thanking him for his efforts in this connection, and the number of cigarettes, already despatch- ed, exceeds 40,000, with over 16 pounds of to- bacco.
