THE STORY O A CONVICTS LIFE"
Scene from Conv.ct 999" at the Grand next week..
H. Woods will bring to the Grand tomorrow,matinee for a week's
engagement, his latest production, described as a stirring melodrama in
four acts and thirteen scenic settings, and entttiled "Convict 999", which
suggestive and pregnant title is significant of the play's subject, and sets
the readers imagination in motion with thrilling: mind-pictures of dar-
ing deeds. Strange to say "Convict 999" is not an aged, tottering prison-
er whose life has been spent behind prison bars, but a manly young New
Yorker} joyous with health and str engHh, a Captain in the National
Guard and the accepted lover of a beautiful girl, who is devoted to him.
Imagine this young man suddenly en tangled in the meshes of the web of
circumstantial evidence, which convicts,him of the crime, and sentences
him, an innocent victim of circums-tances, to the awful death chair. Around
the startlinor adventures of this unfor unate young man, Dick Thurston,
who hecomes a mere numeral in one of the fearful "condemned cells" of
Sing Sing, is woven the plot of "Con vict 999," and his miraculous escape
during a bloody revolt of the hun-lreds of convicts in the prison, forms
intensely interesting dramatic material. The managemnet promises an un-
