Christmas day, matinee and night, and
"When Knighthood Was In Flower,"
which plays matinee and night on SaC
: tlrday.
Both of theso attractions will bo pre
?ented by strong companies,
Tho season now half ovor has been a
prosperous one to Thomas G, Loath,
all of his house.?? keeping above last year,
Which was the banner one.
"From tho North and East there havo
sounded many moans over hard times
and dull times with theatrical people,
In ' this pnrt of tho country In lias
been otherwise, Ilio theatres all doing
splendidly. ' ' ,
The attractions at the Academy have
been very strong, and Mr. Lentil's have
not failed to respond to his efforts to
make tho season an artistically brilliant
one.
Xmas at Academy.
"David Harum." as dramatized from
Wescotl's book, will be preseli ted by an
exceptionally strong company, under the
direction of Julius Cnhn at the Academy
Christmas matinee and night.
Tlio comedy, which Is one of tho great?
est successes of the times, ran the greater
part of one soaHon In New York. Its
tour last yeur took In Chicago, Boston
and Philadelphia, In which cities it en
Joyed such long runs and won unstinted
favor. Its presentation hero Is certain
to attract a crowded house.
All of the scenes of ihe comedy are
laid in Homoville, X. Y.. Ihe opining one
being an exterior showing a bit of Ha?
rum'? bank on, thc side, Aunt Polly's
houso on the other, and the barn in tlio
background. The characters are all in?
troduced before Harum comen into view,
and when he does it Is after his. ex?
perience with tell balky bay horse on the
River road.
"Where havo you been?" demands Aunt
Polly.
"On a small matter of business," ans?
wer?. David.
"Business, that's what you allere say,"
ehe replies.
"I know," says David. "Business is
business ain't part of the Golden Rulo,
Til allow. Tho way it usually reads Is:
?Do unto the other feller as he would
like to do unto you, only do him fust.' "
Then follows the talk to John Lenox,
tho new cashier, -,nud tho nilinonlllen' -"of
Andy Brown's.' "Boys, when you get a
ten dollar bill yon want to get It Into
?yer or ontcr yer as soon as ye can, for
we're here to-day and away to-morrow,
nnd there ain't-no pocket in a shroud.'
One of the features in this act is tho
horso trade between David nnd Deacon
Perkins, and It Is said to be very cleverly
?worked. ^ ?.?,
The second act shows David s room
next to tho office of the bank. While in
tho preceding act Harum's swooping pro?
pensities are shown, In this tho cold
business side of his character and his de
elre to get thc best of everybody is
pictured. Among the Incidents arri the
tussle with Bill .Montais, the".village
tough, tho matter of the counterfeit bills
and David's advice to Lenox to put them
In a drawer, as they are all right an
long us thoy are kept moving, There Is
tho resignation of Port Chet TImson, nnd
finally the securing of tlio mortgage? on
the Widow Cullorn'8 proporty.
Aunt Polly's sitting room Is the scena
end Christmas morning the time .of the
last act?. incident follows upon tho
heels of Incident with rnplility In this act,
but tho feature of It all is tho story pf
the visit of the circus wlih Billy P.,
told by Harum as he sits by the open
flro-placo smoking a very bad cigar At
Its conclusion when tho old man Wills
the good that Billy P. did him and ho
gives back the widow hor house and
farm, thero comes a gentle touch of
?motion that Is very strong. Tho pluy
ends with tho Christmas dinner and the
opening of that famous botilo of chains
pague.
There are fourteen characters In tho
comedy, and thoy aro said to bo In capa3
ble hands, ? '
Mr? Turner in his makemp of Harum
follows minutely Westcott's description
o? the old fellow. Ills Individual success
I? ttie play' Is said to 'ivershadow any.
thing elso that ho haa ever shown to
the public.
"When Knighthood Was in
Flower."
Rosalie Knott will bo the leading lady
In "When Knighthood Was In Flower."
She Is new In this section, but she comes
with high recommendations from the
critics. For the part of Mary Tudor
there Is required exceptional emotional
ability, which Miss Knott Is said to have.
The play is a dramatization by Paul
Kesler. who ?.-among-the Xaromost .of.
tho living dra??u.tlsts. ..It abounds, with
thrilling Bceiie'sVand tableaux, and af?
fords splendid opportunity for ? richness
in costuming and-setting.
Tho mounting of the play Is said to be
all that-can be desired.
"When Knighthood Was In Flower"
will bo at tho Academy matinee and
night.
