Mr. Fothcrn will In all probability come
In'for a hearty -welcome rt the Olympic The
ater to-morrow night. This actor hi.s al
ii ays been most serious and dignitled In his
endeavor. Season after season he has of
fered novelties of the be.t sort, and In most
cases they have proved to be popular suc
cesses. His "Hamlet" of the present sea
son has received a. ureal deal of praise,
mixed, most generously, with crltlel-m-
not. however, an a production. Mr. Soth
. rn's conception of the part, belli original.
Is somewhat of a SHOCK to nuivnuum,
which means that William Winter and
others equally distinguished have fallen out
with It PL Ixuiis Shakepeareans will view
the venture with Interest. To-morrow night
will be the ncr.islon of Mr Sot hern's Jlrt
nppearance after weeks of Illness.
The ndvniirr booking of seats and hnx.es

In the "Mikado" dwells pleasantly in pub
lie recollection He is the great apostle of
the spontaneously animated comedy chorus
and as such has achieved a creditable re
nown In the profession. "Ermlnle" Is
Tiartlcularly strong on the scenic and
nartorl.il side. French exteriors, rococco
costumes, silks, satins, hose, buckles,
garters, swords, powdered wigs and the like
by the score will serve to bravely trick
out every net ail seen", and. liv way of
contrast. Caddeau and Kavenncs. tint
precious pair of highwaymen, will do their
best to appear picturesque In rags and th
enforced semblance of gentility. W. H.
Sloan, alpo out here the first time thl

Francis Wilson was wont to put his bet

"Why did I play Hamlet? Write it down

The plot of "The Ilattle or the Strong." in
which Marin Hurrotihs will appear at the
Century Theater this evening. 3 chnraitn--lzed
by rapidity of aitlnn The scene Is on
the island of Jersey, In the latter pirt of tin
Eighteenth Centurj. at the i omniencem.-nt
of the outbreak of the. I'rench Revolution.
The heroine. Cuida. his been married secret
ly to Philip D'Avranche, who persuade-, her.
under a solemn compact, to reveal the mar
riage to nobody while he goes to France. In
that country, tempted by the inducements, of
wealth and rank. In- enters tin
bonds of wdlock with the daugh
ter of a French iiobli-mm. In Hie
meantime trouble fall thickly nrotn.l
his poor wife in the Maud of Jersiy.
She is shortly to become a mot hi r. and tho
knowledge of this fait shocks her neighlior"
to such a degree that they shun her an If
sho was Infected by the plagin-. It also re
sults In the desth of her infirm oid grand
father. Still she believes In her abnt hus
band and holds to her promise to kia p b.-r
marriage a secret. Finiliy the news Philip
has been wedded again comes to her, the
blow falling with crushing force. H. r child
is born, and for years she endures ml.-for-tune
with fortitude. Her chief .sjmpathiziT
Is rjctrlcand. whose character resembles
somewhat that or Sidney Carton, in Dick
ens's "Tale of Two Cities." He hasi loved
her from the first, but through all the dene
gloom of her life she has boon true to the
false-hearted Philip. The latter returns to
the Island of Jersey a French Admiral Ho
visits the- hut of Gulda. v.heie a s'ounv
sccno ensues. Convinced or his perfidy, she
refuses to love him any longer or to ons nl
to his demand to take away their child. An
attempt to kidnap the little" one Is frustrated
by Detrlcind. who. In the last act. lights a
duel with Philip. Guld.i's faithless husband,
however, does not meet death at the ItamN
of his honorable rival, but falls a victim to
Uormy Jamais, the Iialf-wllted folliuer of
Detricand. All ends hippllv for fluida and

things, and If not nlwas dangerous ate far
reaching In effect. There rsed to be an old
saw- in the copy-books about a , b!Ie
changing the course of a stream. An Inci
dent Illustrative of this appears In the n
leeror Willi im Gillette. It v.as the cheei
ftii Invention of a mv.-spaper man wht?ii
was the original iause of tin- dramatizi
tion of "Sherlock Holmes." When Willi nn
Gillette was In London in the midst of ins
long run with "Secret Seivlce." one 'av
Charles Frohman showed him a dipping
f i om an obfeure newspaper prlutnl in 'he
western part of the Cniled Stalls, wl'kli
liioted Doctor A. Conaii Dojlc as ajin
that no one siinald ever dramatize the pi i,
"Sherlock Holmes." but William Gill-tt-.
At that time Mr. Gillette is ald t- have
had a marked dislike for the stories, voting
them nlmo-,t too impossible, for considen
tlon. and he laughed at the Idea of l.ii iver
appearing as the great detective or fiction.
However, ho suggested to Mr. Frolmiiii
that it might not be a bad Idea to ueoun
the title of "Sherlock Holmes" for dra
matic use. and this suggestion Mr. Frohman
acted upon, arranging with Doctor Dovl
on a rojaltv basis for the use of the nam--,
regardless or what use It rrlght lie put to.
There the matter rested until the English
season had closed, another season hud
opened and Mr. Gillette was in Calirornia
on his farewell tour in "Secret Service"
when Mr. Frohman suggested tint the de
tective story scries should be dramatized,
and declared that that Western rewspaper
man had a keen eje for the fitness of things
when he coupled together the personality of
"William Gillette anJ the literary personality
of Doctor Dojle's hero.
Mr. Gillette communicated with Doctor
Doyle nnd asked him to what extent he
might lake liberties, if he -o desired, with
the llt?ra-y character.' and Doctor DoyV
replied that he Ie the matter -ntlrelv in
Mr. Glljetts'j hands r.r.d gave him carte
blanche to do as he thought best. Mr.
Gillette then arranged with .Mr. Frohman
that he have a six weeks' rest in Caliror
nia for tho urpose cf dramatizing the play.
One who knows Mr. Gillette knows that
he Is a perfect "demon for uri." It Is
a case of coat off and cuffs turned back
when the popular actor-author starts In to
turn out a. play,, and he kcep.i up the
