"The Span of Life."
One of the most startling, as well as
appropriate names that has been given
a melodrama is "Tho Span of Life,"
over which there is so much discussion,
and which will be Hi von at tbo Academy
of Misic Wednesday, September 25.
Perhap3 by telling a little of tho story
of this latest stage sensation, one can

takes place, the first and Gnal scenes
being laid in Devonshire. At the open?

is made to blight the existence of
Richard Blunt, the hero, who with his
wife goes to the gold and diamond fields
of Africa. There bo is hounded by an
old enemy, Dujstan L?ech, who has
taken up the terrible calling of a slaver
