iggle, which was simply irresistible.
stepped into the hearts ;f her audi
tors the moment she made her ap
pearance on the stage, and sin- kept
them in a remarkably good humor
tr.re ugliout the play through the evi
dent, enjoyment of her Hart, which
gives tier :iinp:e o ppt j r t unity to elis
p!;iy her talents as a comedienne. The
.mpany was a capable one and the
k'rlod of the play, which is supposed
to be about 17."Jf). makes it possible to
mount the play beautifully and also to
oisplav soir.e erv pretty costumes.
The story tells i f the adventures of
Iolly anion, a young- country girl,
who has been brought to London for
the first time by her guardian. .lohn
Fairfax (John I)uiimore), but who
keeps her secluded so that he can
force her into r.n unwilling marriage
with himself. While taking her daily
walk in her sedan chair, she drops a
letter to Capt. Celleville (Harry (lir
nrd). who is dismissed by her guard
ian, but who meets her secretly, and
by outwitting the old gentleman fi
nally wins her. The unconscious mis
takes which Dolly makes while in po
lite soc iety for the lirst time were de
lightful. A miner comedy part was
well taken by Lord I lays park (TV. II.
Fitzgerald), who finally loses his in
tended. Let it ia Fairfax (Eunice Drake),
because of the charms of Capt. llar
court (Harold Clake). Several mem
bers i f the company were suffering
from colds, but taken altogether the
production was one of the best seen
here for some t iine.
Ilanroril la ICIi-harcl III.
Charles C. Hanford, who appears
here I uesday i f next week. !ia long!
expressed a ocsirc to present "Ilich-
Rrd III." on the same scale of scenic
maiignificeiice as has -characterize:!
other Shakespearean revivals in which
he has participated. So thorough and
elaborate have been his preparations
for a realization of his ambition, that
they have extended far beyond the
limits of the summer interim in the
atrical affairs which i" usually suf
ficient for the most elaborate juo
ductioiis. Only the latter portion of
Mr. Hanford's sea-on will be devoted
to "Cichard III." The production has
scored a success which fully compen
sates the pn ducer for the care and
effort which he has bestowed upon it.
The reports which precede the com
pany are such as to leave no doubt
of the brilliancy of Mr. Hanlord's suc
cess, or the justice of exceptional
claims made by the management on
behalf of the supporting company, the
scenery and the costuming. Mr. Han
ford will present the traditional Co 1 ley
I iiiiier version or the play, which pre
serves all the ringing speeches and
stirring climaxes which were sanc
tioned by the great tragedians of by
gone generations. Mr. Hanford al
though cut' of the most modern of
actors in spirit and method reflects
the visibility and intellectuality of Hie
classic stage in a manner which com
pels the am'iWr to go back many
years to find a subject of comparison.
The sincerity of his art is beyond
question, but it is art without ped
antry, as those who have seen his
dashingly humorous portrayal of
"IYtriKnio" in 'The Taming Vf the
Shrew" or of -neneduk" in "Much
Ado About Nothing" will testify. Miss
Marie Drofnah, whose charming work
of last season made her a favorite with
an assured welcome awaiting her, re
mains with the company, and the sup
porting company has been organized
with the especial view of securing an
et'icient cast for this production.
"Little CbrUtlau" Saturday.
Local theatregoers will have an op
portunity to see the beautiful play
"The Little Christian," Saturday, mati
nee and night. The public care more
about a play and the acting than about
scenery and costumes. "The Little
Christian" is an ideal play. Its lines
are clean cut and incisive, and it is a
well constructed piece of work. It is
brimful of situations, surprises and
quick action, truly cn ideal play.
"Ran On the Hank."
"A Ktin on the Hank." will occupy
the stage i f the Illinois Sunday. This
bright farce comedy will be presented
by a large company of comedians and
pretty girls headed by those two clever
actors. Milt Woods and Tom Hyland,
who will be seen in the leading roles
of Percy and Harold. These parts
give - them ample opjwvrt unity to dis
play their versatility, and that they
nre VtlCcttssful is evidenced by the gen
erous applause and heart v reception
they receive every time they appear
upon the stage. In their support are
the following high class vocalists,
comedy artists and specialty people:
Towner sisters, change artists; Vin-
in.- .nariiii, acronano chancer and com
edian; Victor Casniore. who is him
self an exceptionally clever Hebrew
impersonator; lU ntlmm and Freeman.
operatic vocalists and ethiopian de
lineators; Vera Ce'niont and Lotta
tirant, singers; Arthur Koach. ecccn
t riquecomiqiic; Frank Kohinson. nm.-i-cal
arti.-t and E. L. Sutton, electrical
marvel. Also a well voiced chorus of
1.1 pretty girls in all Ihe latest and
popular music of the day.

local college g.vmnasiuiii last evening
was wen by the home team by the
close score of .1 to 4. The first half
ended in a tie. 1 to 1. but in the sec

that made them the victors. The teams
were composed as follows:

resting content with getting the per
ishable freight over the road so long
as the sharp weather lasted.
This winter has proved the worst
from an operating standpoint the rail
roads have experienced in many years.
Continued cold spells have necessitat
ed the constant use of engines until
many of them are unfit for duty and
still cannot be spared for repairs.
Trains arrived in Cock Island all the
way from a few minutes to several j
hours late. The extreme cold makes
it impossible to maintain a suflicient
steam pressure lo haul heavy loads at
the usual rate of speed.

Golden State Limited In fftMk.
The Golden State Limited, the fast
Cock Island passenger train, crashed
into a freight train in a head-on col

morning, and that no one was hurt
seems a wonder. The freight crew
had received orders to sidetrack at
Rureau, which was dene, in order to
let the passenger have the right of
way. As the passencer r.eared the
the engineer noticed that the
to the tidetrack was
