TALES OF THEATRE
Probably (me of the most important
dramatic events of the season will oc
cur at the llliiKws Saturday, mati
nee and niirht, when William A: Ura-
dy's play of rural New Kn'glantI life
by I,:.ttie lUair Parker entitled, "'Way
Down K;rst" makes its, appearance.
Produced under tlie stajfe direction of
Joseph It. (irismer, this charmingr
idyl if American rustic life combines
many elements that command inter
est -and exact popular sympathy. It
appeals to all classes by its tender
pathos and irenial humor, its admir
able actintr and its stag-e realism. Its
pictures of life on the old New Kn
Iamlfarm. with its sleig-hing- arties
and maple sniyar camps, introduce
many quaiiU anI genuinely comic
characters. Sunshine in plenty lights
u the shallow, and there are many
amusintr episoties. .Mrs. Parkers ru
ral drama is a reproduction of .New
Knirland types and phases, and it
said to be nn admirable piece of work,
and the naturalism of the play itself
is increased and heih tened by the
realistic fashion in which it has been
mounted. It makes cold chills (so it
is declared) run down one's spinal
column, to see the pitiless, blinding
snow "storm which drives past the
windows of the old New Hampshire
farm house. St acre snow storms
have heretofore lacked variety. Paper
sTiow flakes sifted from perforated
boxes in the flies jjenerally fall in
very limited area, but Mr. (irismer.
who staged "Yay Down Kast." has
hit upon a novel divice. This particu
lar snow stcrm seems to have set in
to last the rest of the winter. The
Hakes drive past the windows, as if
blown from the winirs of a trale, they
ire in fact blown by machinery. It is
all intensely interesting, and extreme
ly picturesque. The. company which
Manager IJrady has selected for this
piece is one of the very strongest
ever jrathered for a play of this kind.
Stetson's "I'ncle Tom's Cabin" is
the title of a really bi company.
which, under the personal manage
ment of Leo Washburn, whose name
most favorably associated with u-
to-date amusements, is to appear at
the Illinois Sunday. The company
comprises .() people, lnelu.linjr a dozen
peciiilty artists, two quartets, a siir
perb orchestra, and .many colored
comedians, who add to the biir pro-
iuction not a Mttle by their spontan
