"September Morn" at the Walnut
"September Morn," which Is the offer

ting comedian who keeps tho audience in
a good humor all the time.
Many comical situations are portrayed.
Tho cntlro performance hinges upon the

professor is permitted to contlnuo his
profession In peace.
Miss Kathryn Bowen, as Louise Storm,
thb daughter of a retired army officer,
who is In love with Teddy Van Dyke,
is an unusually pretty chorus leader. Tho
show Is filled with catchy ragtime hits
and pleasing music.
"The Third Party" at the Adelphl
Yesterday evening a new force, "Tho
Third Fartv," camo to tho Adelphl with
a cast headed by tho two excellent co
medians, Taylor Holmes and Walter
Jones. The piece will bo reviewed In tho
tSvemno LEDOEn tomorrow from the per

Lew Fields at the Garrick
Lew Fields came to Philadelphia as a
"straight" star lost night, when ho ap
peared at tho Garrick In a farce from tho

of amorous pecadlllos. The play and per

"Tho Phantom Rival" at the Broad
Monday evening Leo Dltrlchsteln came
to the Broad In an musing dream-comedy,
"The Phantom nival." Play and

tho Evenino Lbdoeii of yeBtcrday from
a performance In New York.
"BORIS GODUNOFF" TONIGHT
The first Russian opera of tho season
will bo presented tonight at the Metro
politan Opera House. The opera, "Boris
Godunoff," will bo sung in Italian, but
tho original spirit of the work will be
preserved as far as possible. The cast
will be almost the same ns that which
presented the same work last March, and
-will Include Dldur, Althouse, Itothler,
Relss, Bnda nnd Segurola, among tho
men, and Mmes. Obcr, Delaunols, Du
chene and Cox. Tho music, setting, sing
ing and action of this opera, which deals
with the usurpation of the thorne of the
Czars after the death 'of Ivan tho Ter
rible, and is thoroughly national In char
acter, will make it probably the greatest
event of the operatic year.
Kensington Merchants to Meet
The Kensington Merchants' Association
will hold a Bmoker and "good fellow
ship" meeting tonight at Schroeder's
Hall, Kensington avenue and Cumber
land street. The meeting will open at 8

ness will be blended with pleasure. There
will be a. few addresses and musical
numbers.

"Oh, will you?" asked the raindrops,
happily, "we'll be so pleasedl"
"To be sure I will." replied the tele
graph pole comfortably, "you hang her
to my side a minute while I think."
So the raindrops hung there as tight
as they could and the kindly telegraph
pole hummed and thought.
Tften they made a ptofure of iht sky on
the turace of their puddle.
"I have an idea," he said at last "I
am so busy all the time, sending messages
and holding up the wires, that I don't
have time to watch the sky as I wish I
could. I have often wished that the sky
was drrn underneath me, for It's much
easier.. o look down than up. Now, why
don't you make me a picture of the sky
down there on the ground?"
The Idea pleased the raindrops immense
ly. They set right to work so the tele
graph polo would have time to see the sky
before dark. They slid down to the street,
then I they spread themselves out In a flat
sueet, then they made a picture of the
sky on the surface of their puddle. Bo If
ever you see a picture of the sky In a
puddle of water, you way know that It'e
made for the poles that can't watch the
ky.

JOBLESS WORKMAN TELLS
WHY HE IS UNEMPLOYED
Has Three Trades; Employers Think
He Is a Prince.
Vaughan Campbell, who sleeps in the
barn of the Abbey Hotel, nt 'WlBsa
hlckon and Hunting Park avenues, and
who used to work at tho Mldvale Steel
works, Is now out of work. Ho thinks
his chances of getting a job today would
be better If ho did not have any more
than one trade. When asked to tell why
ho wai out of work, he said:
"I can't get a Job at any of the three
trades I've followed. Every employer
asks me what else I con do besides his
line, and then he says, 'Well, we haven't
got any place here. You've got a bettor
chance than most men because you sure
can land at any one of your other two
trades."
"The foreman of the open-hearth gang
at tho Mldvale told me this morning that
I'd been away from the work so long
he coudn't trust me, except as a helper,
and he had 600 applications for that Job.
"The light metal workers are worse off
than the steel men, because tho steel
mills aro taking on a few men, and
there Is no chance for the metal work
ers. Besides that, I quit the Metal Work
ers' Unldn when I took to team driving,
and they won't have me at any price.
They're taking care of their members
whenever they And a job.
"The teamsters are suffering. Shipping
Is disorganized and the men who worked
along the water front are as unhappy
as the longshoremen. About 7S per cent,
of tho teamsters aro out of work. All
over town business Is bad because the
stores have felt the hnrd times and are
reducing their number of employes.
Along the river more than half the lit

business have quit, and there won't be

Dr. Dugald Christie, Recipi
ent of Many Imperial
Honors, Now in This City.
To See Wilson.
An honorary medical adviser to the Chi
nese Government and recipient of decora
tions from tho rulers of great nations is
now in Philadelphia for a short visit. He
Is Dr. buguld Christie, of Edinburgh,
Scotland, who Is staying with his brother,
Gilbert Chrlfltle, of 2131 North 32d street
Doctor Christie Is on his way back to
China to renew his work as a medical
missionary in Manchuria. Doctor Chris
tie makes his headquarters at Mukden,
whero he has been, except for occaatonat
tslts to tho West, since 1882. During
that time ho has been honored by many
notables for hit work In the medical field.
An Intcrvlow with President Wilson has
been arranged for Doctor Christie.
In speaking of hln work, Doctor Chris
tie said:
"Wo are trying to establish medical col
leges throughout Mancnurla, where there
Is tho greatest need for advancement In
medlcnl lines. In Mukden we have a col
lego with eight qualified men as teachers
There arc about 80 pupils. Wo also have
n honpltal In connection with the collcgo
whero the students can acquire practical
training. In China there reilly Is no med
lcnl profession, except nn old typo of
practice which Is rusted, so to say. In
Mnnchurlit there Is a tremendous field for
ung doctors who tlmlro to tako up this
kind of missionary wotlc. We would wel
come young physicians with their nd
nneed training from tho Western coun
tries "
In speaking of China from tho political
point of view, tho Doctor said: "The Gov
ernment Is now In tho hands of n strong
mnn who li In sympathy with Western
Iduns and advancement. Particularly Is
ho Interested In the prnct'ce of medicine
as carried on In these parts of the world.
Tho feeling was, nt tho tlmo tho republic
wns formed, thnt tho people were not
ready for It, but they hnvo adjusted
themselves to It nnd promlso to mako a
great nation. Tho Chinaman Is easily
govorned If tho theory of the government
Is 'right 1b might.' Ho Is a pcaceablo
fellow nnd very honost."
Dr. Christie has been decoratod by the
King of Englnnd, the Hmpcrora of Russia,
Japan and the former Emperor of China,
nnd also by the Dowager Empress of Rus
sia. Ho was created commander of tho
Most Distinguished Order of St. Michael
