It makes one better to see such a
play as "Shore Acres." Human na
ture in its credulity, which is but an
other way of saying in its purity,
teaehesmany a lesson, if perverse man
kind would only stop to heed. "Shore
Acres" is an old play, and yet it is a
new one new in that one never tires
of seeing it, and one finds something
more to admire in every representa
tion. This is "Shore Acres'" twelfth
seas n, and that in itself is the great
est proof of the play's value. If there

those bits of human nature that has
helped to endear "Shore Acres" to
very lover of home life in America.
There are other scenes equally as
touching." No play now before the
public has so honestly deserved the
success it has achieved, and every
lover of refined stage art sincerely
hopes that "Shore Acres" will con
tinue to lit' played for many years to
come. A fine scenic production of
this ileal work will be given at the

What promises to be a gay. grace

disclosed at the Illinois next Monday
night, when local playgoers will get
their first view of "The Wizard of
Oz." This resplendent spectacular
prorluct icw comes here almost direct
from New York City after a phenome
nal run at the Majestic theatre
in the metropolis, where it played to
audiences limited only by the size of
the theatre. "The Wizard of Oz." as
every olnio: will tell you, iiau its ori
gin in Frank Hanoi's fairy tale of the
same title, a work that has brought
delight into theuspnds of homes and
lias been pronounced by connoisseurs
in lolklore and juvenile net ion an
imaginative creation worthy of the
P.rothers (irimm, Jlans Christian
Anderson or Lewis Carroll. On the ba
sis of Mr. Haum's modern fairy tale
an extravaganza has been constructed
according to the most up-to-date for
mula, embracing all the elements of
the smart musical comedies with some
of the old-fashioned fun of comic
partomime. The musical numbers are
the inspiration of Paul Tietjens, a
young composer who. according to the
predictions of conservative musical
critics is a coming man in the field
f comic opera. There are a few in
terpolations, he wever, in the score
that have already won popularity.
Vinong them is "Sammy," which is
catchy enough to make people pucker
their lips to an accompanying chorus.
Divided into three acts and nine scenes
The Wizard of Oz" affords brilliant
opportunity of which Walter lur
ridge availed himself to the utmost.
The first act shows a Kansas farm
and its demolition bv a terrific cy
clone; a picturesque view of the land
of the Munehkins which is another
name for fairyland; a road through
the forest at suii.-et: a poppy-field in
midsummer which is pronounced a
most exquisite creation of scenic art;
and the same poppy-field in winter,
a dazzling and beautiful triumph of
the imagination. The second act dis
closes the gates of the Kmerald City
anfl the courtyard of "The Wizard's"
palace, while the setting of the third
and last act shows the domain of the
sorceress in dreamland, an environ
ment of remarkable spectacular beau
ty. The most gorgeous and elaborate
effects are secured in all of these
stage pictures, and the representation
of the poppy fields with the chorus
posed as flowers is said to rank among
the very best achievements in modern
scenic art. Over a hundred people w ill
be employed in "The Wizard of Oz,"
and among the chief merry-makers
are two very quaint characters, the
scarecrow and the tin woodman, which
