company. It represented a terrace scene,
making a very pretty effect. The com
edians introduced some new jokes, and
the ballads were new and well sung. The
members deserving special mention were
Carl Fletcher, the phenomenal boy so
praoo, who certainly has the sweetest
child voice ever heard in this city. Messrs

It requires an actor of special gifts to
adequately present the character of
Mhtc Antony. There are two Marc
Antonjs in Shakespeare, almost as dis
tinct as Or. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. On.
is Marc Antony the idler and the volupt
nary, the toy of Cleopatra's fancy, the
other is Marc Antony the patriot, the
loyal friend and avenger. Yet with these
opposite traits the character is one of
great consistency, for hfstory is full of
examples io which a crisis has called
forth noble qualities in men whose lives
had been given over to pleasure. Man*
Antony should be a handsome man, a
man of gntctful personality, and yet a
man of power and determination. Mr
Charles I*. Hanford, who will present hie
revival of "Julius Caesar" at the Ridge
way theatre on Wednesdaw, April 10,
wns welcomed years ago in the company
of Booth and B'irrett as the ideal Marc
Antony. It is a role to which he owes
much of his present eminence for the
manner in which he fulfilled its many
sided requirements, inspiring confidence
on the part of the play going public and
won him lasting friendships among the
critics. The company associated with
Mr. Hanford in this production includes
a numnpr of players who have become
well known through their performances
with him in the past.

BEAUTIFUL CRIBBAGE BOARD.
Prisoner at Walla Walla Sends One
to Be Raffled.
J. E. Brown, who is serving a sentence
in the penitentiary at Walla Walla of
seven years for killing Tom Turubow at
GarfieJd about four years ago, sent to
Ed Burns of Uartield, through the eher
iff'h office at this place, a cribbage board
that is pronounced by tho*e who have
seen it to be the most beautiful work of
its kind that ever came under their ob
servation. It was received at the sheriffs
office Tuesday, and is held awaiting
orders from Mr. Burns. Brown said that
the benutiful cribbage board was made
by an inmate of the prison (not giving
his name), and asking that it be rallied
for $30 and the money sent to him. It
is box shaped and consists of 299 pieces
of abalone shells and bones, inlaid in
beautiful designs and with artistic effect
When it jb remembered that each piece
had to be cut by hand and made to tit
to the nicety of a hair the time it actu
ally took to Jeomplete the board muct
have run into the months if not into the
seasons. The work represents heartn,
clubs, spades, diamonds, stars, circles,
horseehoes, the maltese cross, the clover
leaf, even birds. The shells are polished
as only the abalone can be polished. As
a work of art and as an evidence, of
patience and skill it has no superior of
its kind. The f.JO the prisoner wants
for it is nothing compared to the labor
spent in making it.

About 4,500,000 Feet Fill Dam In
North End of Town.
About 4,500,000 feet of logs are lying
in the dam in the north end of town,
haviug been floated down the North Pa
louse by the Potlatch Lumber Co. to be
cut into lumber by tbtir mill at this
place. They lie in all conceivable shapes,
jammed find wedged together as though
by titanic force, us indeed they were, the
recent high water bringing the logs down
and playiug with them like toys. The
dam and river bed for half a mile is filled
with saw logs, which caused the water to
overflow its banks at this point and
flood some of the streets and residence
lots in the neighborhood, notwithstand
ing the river's banks had be'en dyked
for over hall et mile on either side. This
condition of things, however, did not
last long, tin the water soon receded and
things are again normal. It worked
considerable inconvenience for a few
dayp, and some of the north euders were
justly indignant, but the elements were
partly to blame aud it is a bard propo
sition to kick against what it does.
The big mill of the Potlatch Lumber
Co. IB chewing up the logs as fast as pos
sible and converting them into merchant
able lumber; men are piliuglbig stacks
for future use, and the mill and yards
present an animated appearance. A
stack of slab wood is also being formed,
a reminder that stovewood may be
cheaper next winter. About 40 men are
employed in aud around the mill. And
the mpply of logs in the dam, to the
layman, seems almost inexhaustible.
