correspondence. Finally, Miss Weigert
consented to marry Jensen, and early
in March cabled that she was about to
start for the United States by the
steamship Patricia. She arrived here
on March 17. but Jensen remained in
ignorance of the fact. He communi
cated with the immigration authori
ties, who answered that Miss Weigert
had arrived, but had left no clew as to
her whereabouts. Jensen', accom

"The Village Postmaster" is anoth
er of tbe rural entertainments which
have come to enjoy such prestige of
late years, and whose development
and popularization is a blessing for
the stage. One night of "The Village
Postmaster," we are told, with its in
nocent fun, its simple but charming
story, and its wholesome lessons, is
worth 10 years of experience with
plays of the baser sort. Archie Boyd
and the original cast with the com
plete New York production will be
seen at tbe Burtis opera house to
night. This is the New Pngland play
that has created such a sensatien
in New York and which had a run
at the Fourteenth street theatre
there of 227 nights. It is with pleas
ure that tbe attention or theatre pat
rons can be directed to such a play.
The most important and interest
ing Shakespearean revival of recent
years is tbe production or "ine win
ter's Tale" which comes to the Burtis
Tuesday evening with a phenomenal
cast headed by "the great star trium
virate," Louis James, Kathr5n Kid
der and Charles B. llanford. Miss
Kathryn Kidder's appearance in the
dual role of Hermione and Perdita
will be sure to revive memories of
Mary Andersoa's like performance.
Miss Anderson choso "The Winter's
Tale," it will be remembered, in which
to bid farewell to the stage. In this
production by Messrs. Wagenhals and
Kemper, in which Louis James, Kath
ryn Kidder and Charles B. Hauford
are to appear in Davenport, all three
actors are most happily suited in tbe
roles which tbey assume. But "The
Winter's Tale" is a play which de
mands superb stage setting. Every
thing that money and artistic taste
can provide in the way of settings,
perfectly harmonious costumes and
all the accessories of music and light,
which the American stage knows,
have been provided. Stage picture
after stage picture full of picturesque
beauty delight the eye, while the mas
terful actors who are in this company
develop to the fullest extent the dra
matic strength of Shakespeare's mas
terpiece, and do full justice to the ex
quisite poetry. The company em
braces 37 people beside the three dis
tinguished orincipals, and includes
such well known names as Barry
Johnstone. Norman Hackett. Thomas
Coffin Cooke, Helen Singer, Mrs. Van
denhofl and the two Shakespearean
veterans, Harry Langdon and John A.
