LETTERS FROM THE PEOPLE.
Algiers, Feb. 14, 1911.
Dear Sir-Inspector Reynolds will
earn the thanks of all of our people
who travel in our local street cars
it he will scatter the crowd of blacks
who infest the corner of Teche and
Newton streets, where the car com
pany has its junction. The schedule
compels the first car reaching said
point to wait there for the others, and
there being three cars involved, the
delays at said corner are inevitable
and sometimes prolonged. The help
less passengers, .largely composed of
women and children, are thus com
pelled to sit there and listen to the
usual repartee of the roustabout and
the crap-shooter, with which that re
dolent atmosphere is surcharged. This
nuisance, which was as first submitted
to by this trolley line's regular pa
trons, as belpg one of the unavoidable
incidents attending the sudden inva- I
alon of Ceontown, was expected to die
out accordingly as the railway officials I
found time to give some of their at
tention tq this and kindred matters.
But Instead of dying out, It seems to
get worse, as the crowds In the cars
increase, so that there seems to be no
other alternative than to "call the
police," If those of us who have faml
lies and who must continue traveling
in these cars are to be saved fromn
such humiliating experiences. Sinee
Inspector Reynolds himself passes
this corner daily, in these ears, and
now has the necessary authority, it is
hoped that he will put the oacer on
this beat "next." Desencyr

AT ST. MARY'S HALL
,A good many of our folks are look
ing forward to a rare treat which will
be given them at St. Mary's Hall on
Friday night, Feb. 17th, when Mr. C.
E. W. Grimth. the noted reader of
Shakespeare, will be the attraction.
The admission will be 25 cents and
10 cents for school children. "As You
Like It" will be the subject Mr. Grif
flth wil! read on that night.
Mr. Griffith holds that it is the read
er's art to illumine literature; to pop
ularize what is good in modern writ
ing, and to revive the priesess treas
urea of the classics. Only a few of
Shakespeare's plays are presentd on
the stage, but the reader makes It pos
sible fr us to realise dramatically all
of his mighty literary creations.
Mr. Grifth's artistic renditions are
based upon careful and original liter
ary ilatrpretations. Hle is the only
reader in the world who reds every
season all of Shakespeare's plays in
public. This worthy undertaking is
both unique and prodigious. These
plays are so abbreviated that nothing
offensive to modern taste remains, and
yet so artistically effected that no
word is changed. Mr. Griith insists
that true art is its own best interpre
tation, and therefore substitutes sug
gestive expressions for the usual pe
dantic explanations. He reads with
great intelligence, colors his roles with
fine emotional shading and distin
guishes them with delicate yet distinct
suggestions of character. He possess
es a marvelously esihble voies, and ex
pressive face, strong personal magne
tism, and unbounded sympathy which
harmonises all he reads. The distinct
ive characteristic of his reading eis a
noble aim to present them liftple
tares in such a way as to show the
logic of events and the results of -
tion, for the purpose of broadening the
alamin and ensoisg hlmas osduct.
