It Is rumored that tho brother
of Ellas Vantran, who undoubtedly
was accidentally drowned in Falls
burgh Lake, went to Mlddletown to
consult a clairvoyant in regard to
tho matter and as a result ho was
informed that Mr. Vantran was safe
and happy and not in the lake. In a
certain sense the seer probably has
spoken the truth, but there is no
doubt in the minds of anyone in that
region but what his body is some
where in tho bottom of Fallsburgh
Lako and In due course of time will
bo brought to tho surface. However,
all efforts to discover the where
abouts of the body thus far have
been in vain.

Karl Hoschna, the composer of
"Three Twins," "Bright Eyes,"

Luxe" Is responsible for tho music.
The story tells of the difficulties
of tho leader of a bachelor's club
in winning the hand and heart of the
lady of his desire in the person of a
little Quaker girl with "hazel eyes"
from tho country. The comedy sit
uations of the piece are extremely
farcial and the occasion of much
merriment, and through a network
of curious .misunderstandings that
run through the piece, the young
man has many hardships to overcome
and much explaining to do before he
finally Is permitted to claim the lit
tle Quaker girl for his bride. In the
principal roles are Leila Mclntyre as
"Lucy," the Quaker Maiden, and
John Hyams as Harry Swlfton,
planter of wild cats. Miss Mclntyre
is a demure, sweet unspoiled come
dienne whose lack of ostentations

effectively and her dancing Is an art
