nrpr "PAST 20JL."
Manager Lloyd has booked for
Monday evening; December 9th,the
great railroad melodrama. Lincoln
J. Carter's "Fast Mail," which will
be given a grand scenic production,
that in mairy respects promises to
be one of the most remarkable ever
in this city. The play is constructed
on strictly modern principled. The
interest starts at a terrific pace,
and is not allowed lo flag for an
instant. The incidents are made
doubly thrilling by the mechanical
and scenic effects that are employed.
There is the rattle and clatter of a
patrol wagon as it comes down the
street, the whistles, bells, etc, of a
Mississippi steamboat leaving her
wharf, moonlight effects on the
river, theglowing furnaces of the
boat, and ilie explosion and break
ing up of the steamer. A gigantic
piece of real water scenery is pre
sented in the Niagara Falls' scene,
where the enormous cataract is
represented with the roan.ofthe
water, the seething foam and the
rising mist. A freight train of
fourteen cars is run across the
stage. The caHjoose is lighted and
the engine carries the engineer and
fireman. It is everywhere acknowl
edged to be an unsurpassed achieve
ment in railroad scenic effect.
There seems to be no -limit to the
possibilities of stage mechanism,
but -The Fast Mail" seems to have
covered all the ground up to the
present date. The company is
highly spoken of, and the play is
well constructed, with a strong
tinge of comedy to offset the serious

resumed-for the winter season. It
held its second nfeeting last Satur
day evening. The question deba
ted was "Resolved that society has
more to do with the formation of
character than literature." It was
decided in fayor pf the affirmative.
Owing to it being almost the first
meeting of this season, there were
not many persons present, but
those who' were there did all in
their power to make the society a
success. Some who did not come
with the expectation of taking part
in the programme kindly did so
wmn requested and all who at
tended went home feeling that they,
had a pleasant time. Hereafter
we hope to see a larger number
present-from Maxwell and from the
Island also. Let us try to make
the literary society as much cL a
success and as interesting as it was
list winter. TVe should be glad if
each one would come prepared to
take part In the programme, but if
you don't Avish to do that come any
how and have a good time.

situated about nine miles west of
Somerset on a part of the battle

part of the battle was fough t, and
found unmistakable evidence of the

and rifle pits in a good state of
preservation. The shell and solid
shot marks are still to be seen on
the large oak trees, and we stood
under the tree where Gollicoffer

It embraces three and one-half
