CHICAGO THEATRES - - THE PAST WEEK was signal for being the close of the brilliant run of the "Two Orphans.' Full houses and large receipts characterized the performances to the close. and the success of the Union Square Company should give a useful hint to some other managers that ' the best talect is the cheapest investment in the long run.. , At the Saturday performance every lady was presented with le One photograph of the Two Orphans as a memento of the play which has stirred feminine sympathies to a greater degree than any other drama that Las been presented here for years. , The only other dramatic performance of the week was that at the Adelphi. where the "Ice Witch " dieplaved its dazzling splendors. and Bishop amused the large audiences with his drolleries. The olio entertainment inserted into the play has iocinded a genuine sensation in "King Sarbro." and Bishop'et farce specialties have greatly increased the attractieeness of the pr gramme. - The preseet week may be looked upon as the beginning of the fail season. although it succeeds a remarkably good summerone without interruption. The cold weather bad doubtless a great deal to do with the success of the latter and the early start of the former. EATRE'S.
