MRS. AND MR. KEELEY AS "VALENTINE AND ORSON."

Our pair of portraits is sketched from the new and successful burlesque at the Lyceum Theatre; the scene being that in which Valentine and Orson engage in "terrific combat."  In the sketch is depicted the terror of the wild man at seeing his features reflected in the bright shield of the warrior prince.  The incident, always a favourite one in the original melo-drama, tells in the burlesque: the action is very effective, and the libretto sparkles with pun and quaint allusion.
