MODJKPKA.-o he attraction at the
Academy to-night is one which will
claim an unusual amount of attention
from those Interested in the higher
drama. Modjeska, the distinguished
actress, who has not visited this cityy
for several years, and who has only
recently returned to the stage after a
temporary retirement, will be seen
there in one of her most conspicuously
successful roles. During the few weeks
which have elapsed since the beginning
of her present season she has been the
recipient wherever she lias played of
that respectful and admiring homage
which was always paid to her. and
the newspapers have been unanimously
enthusiastic in praise of her art, and
in the verdict that the tire of her
genius was absolutely undimmed. She.
will be seen here in her consummate
portrayal of Lady Macbeth In Shake
speaie's tragedy. An excellent sup?
porting company comes with Modjeska
on this tour. First In it is Mr. Jos.
Haworth, a splendid young actor who
has been seen in this city and Im?
pressed all by the force and cleverness
of his acting. A largo audience wijl
be In attendance to-night. Scuts can
bo secured at the Academy, prices

The big first-class battleship Ken
I tucky, which has been under coristruc
1 tion for the past eighteen months at
the Newport News Shlp-b?Udlng and
I Dry-dock company's great plant, on
i James river, is now about ready to take
her maiden plunge overboard. The
! date has not yet been decided upon
I by the company, and after they name
It the Navy Department will first have
to approve their decision.
However, preparations are rapidly
going forward ut the yard for the great
j event In the ship's history. It is the
; present intention of the shipbuilding
j company to send the Kentucky and
j Kcasargc overboard together. It suc
I cessfully launched the gunboats Wil?
mington arid, Nashville from the same
set of ways, but this will be the first
time in the history of ship-building
that two great battleships have ever
taken the water tandem. The com?
pany's past success with such launch
ings. however, is a guarantee that no
accident will happen to mar the event.
Many distinguished guests are ex?
pected to be present, .among them the
Secretary of the Navy and other
prominent. Washington officials. Gov?
ernor Bradley, of Kentucky, and his
daughter, who will christen the Ken?
tucky with water, the first time n ves?
sel of the United Stales Navy ever
failed to have a bottle of champagne
'broken over her brow at launching.
The ways upon which the two battle?
ships have been constructed arc anipng
the largest ever constructed, and more
than a ton of tallow will be used -to
grease them with.
