the Drama at the Barter.
The beautiful drama, 'Hazel
Kirke," which Eflie Elisler and C.
W. Conldock found for years the
people were not to tire of when ac
ceptably presented, was given at the
Burtie, Llavenport. r.y tri-citv talent
last evening, for tne benefit of the
Davenport public library u ok fund.
It is not saving too much to state
that when the company of players
which achieved such a triumph last
evening p'anned to present this play,
they enlisted themselves in an un
dertaking that involved 00 little en
deavor on the part of all participat
ing. And none will attrioute a pur
pose to make disparaging refer nee
in any in toe cast, in toe assertion i
that with a less talented and exper
ienced ladv at the head of the pro
duction than Mrs. Charles Eug ne
Banks, the adoption of the play by
hands other than profession could
not have been possible. Beautiful
in its lines and situations as --Hazel
Kirke" is. there is so much of the
emotional, and yet such abundant
opportunity tor realism that touches
the heartstrings of nature, that In
poor hands it is nothing in capable
hands it is all and everything. Mrs.
Banks has appeared professionally
in the title role, being known to the
stage as Carrie Wyatt, of the the
Madison Squire company, and apart
from the natural grace and e'rganre
of dramatic action wbich the breathes
into the character, she is so familiar
with every word spoken and every
situation in the piece that her leod"
erehip and direction inspired confi
dence. "Hazel Kirke" was as much
of an ideal in character impersona
tion last evening as has ever been
seen before the footlights in the tri
cities. The Others In the Cent.
It might be invidious and it would
be unjustly discriminate to particu
larize in the discussiou of the vari
ous characters of the play as as
sumed last evening, as all so distin
guished themselves that the praise
which is due to oce is most rirhlv
deseivtd by all. Edmund Stack
