There has just been one of the prettiest gatherings of people in the Berkeley Lyceum that it has ever been my good fortune to see. This little jewel ot an amateur playhouse, set so incon sistently among a lot of stables and tene ments on Forty-ionrth street, is quite the most luxurious and sparkling place in the world when the clever boys from one of the colleges come to town to show what they can make out of dramatic art.
