AT THE THEATRE.
Aug. 29 "A Little Outcast."
Lovers of melodrama regret tha,t
there are so few musical numbers and
specialties introduced in theplay, but
probably they have not looked for rcrv
BOn, which is this: The vaudeville
field is a tempting one to any artist
who has a specialty to exploit, as it
means high salaries and less routine
work; consequently managers of
melodramas find it a difficult task to
compete with the vaudeville houses.
"A Little Outcast," which comes to
the Illinois tonight. is claimed
to be a marked exception to
this rule, as the managemjCnt
buj st-eured artists who have
new and striking specialties. These
are interspersed through the acts with
good effect and give an added zest to
the production. While "A Little Out
cast' is played as a production with
"no stars but the play." several promi
nent people are included in its roster.
That gay little person, Anne Rlanckc,
who has been identified with Sol Smith
Russell, with Neil Burgess in "The
Couiitv I-nir." and with the Valentine
Piui Toronto Stock companies, is fea
tured as "Bob" a newsboy, and is the
bright spectacular star of all the lit
tle street merchants in the cities
where she has appeared. Florence
Klmore and Fred Clayton, in their
sinj-'ln:.' ?i.d dancing specialties, are
prime favorites. as is little Irene
Meara. while Edward Davis in the
leading role is winning many new
friends for his excellent work.
Richard Carle's next musical com
edy effort will bo entitled "The Mayor
if Tokio." The musical score will be
contributed, very probably, by Rober;
Hood Bowers, whose work in "Th
Maid and the Mummy" points to an
excellent Oriental vein in Mr. Bowers"
gray matter, and it is to be hoped that
the Carle Amusement company will
give him this opportunity to show his
musical setting to a Japanese theme.
Sedley Brown's new play. "The Pipe
of Peace," made a phenomenal hit on
the occasion of its recent production
at Portland, Me.
Marie Wainwright began rehearsal:;
for her production of "Twelfth Night
in New York last Monday. Her tour
will begin at Bridgeport, Conn., on
Sept. 1, and will extend to the Pacific
"Dreamland" will be the title of the
new play for the Royal Lilliputians. It
will be produced by Michael Heckert
while the ballets, ensembles and mili
tary evolutions will be arranged by
Jack Mason. Original music is being
composed by William Rostetter.
Stewart is Sued for Divorce.
iienry Stewart, wno was ttned in
the police court for assault and bat
tery Saturday morning, in the after
noon was made defendant in a suit
for divorce commenced in the circuit
court by H. M. McCaskrin. attorney

SPECIAL DAYS ANNOUNCED
Not Be Affected By
Louis Exposition To
Open 29th. 1
When the gates open for the Illinois
state fair of 1904 at Springfield. Sept.
29. a surprise wil await the visitors
who have been deluded with the
thought that the fair was going to be
affected by the greater show at St.
Louis. Instead of the world's fair
being a detriment to the Illinois fair,
it has in many ways been of great
benefit. Every foot of space and every
stall on the grounds will be crowded
to the limit for this year's exhibition.
Thursday. Sept. 29 the first day. is
always Exhibitors' day. when every
thing is bright and fresh and in readi
ness for the inspection of visitors.
Friday, Sept. CO. Every year thou
sands of merchants from all over the
state of Illinois attend the fair to meet
the representatives and examine the
exhibits of the firms that they do
busines with and Friday has been set
apart for their especial benefit.
Saturday. Oct. 1. Heretofor Mon
day of the fair has been set apart for
school children's day, but the board
recognizing the fact that all of the
schools will not be closed Monday,
have decided to designate Saturday as
children's clay and on this day every
school child under 15 years pf age will
be admitted free.
Sunday, Oct. 2. While it is not the
intention of the board to have a "wide
open" fair Sunday, the fact that
many people cannot attend any other
day has induced the board to arrange
a suitable program for Sunday, the de
tails of which will be announced later.
I'nnn. Tn lorvlllc and Jaeknonvllle Day.
Monday, Oct. 3. The three cities
above named have always been liberal
patrons of the fair, and in appreciation
of this fact Monday has been designa
ted as their day, and in addition to
the regular exhibit a splendid speed
program has been arranged for those
who enjoy good racing.
I'eorln and Lincoln Dny,
Tuesday, Oct. 4, will be one of the
very best days of the fair. Spencer's
Military band from Peoria and French's
Military band of Lincoln will be pres
ent and render fine concerts, while the
speed program will be unusually in
teresting. Old Snlfllrm' and Urrntnr Day.
Wednesday, Oct. 5. The old sol
diers are always made welcome at the
state fair on the day set apart for
their entertainment. All old soldiers
will be admitted free and presented
with a nice souvenir badge. This day
has also been set apart for Decatur day
and Goodman's celebrated band from
Decatur will head the immense crowd
that always attends from that city.
There will be some very warm speed
Dun I'ntch nnd (iovrrDor'.i Dny.
Thursday. Oct. G. The great pacing
king, Dan Patch, IroC't. has been en
gaged under special cortract. to try to
break his record of l:."r,14 on this day.
Dan Patch is the fastest horse in the
world and his owners feel confident
that over the famous Illinois state fair
track, which holds the world's race
record. Dan Patch will be able to make
a new record.
Gov. Yates and his entire staff will
be the guests of the board on this day
and will be entertained in a manner
befitting the chief executive of the
great state of Illinois.
Friday, Oct. 7. The city of Spring
field has always been liberal in its
treatment of the state board of agri
culture and its great fair and the board
feels that it could not close the
exposition without setting aside one
day for the comfort and pleasure of
the citizens of Springfield. Many of
the very best speed events of the week
have-been reserved for Springfield day
and it goes without saying that this.
the last and closing day, will be one of
the greatest of the fair.
In addition to the attractions at the
fair the Business Men's association of
Springfield have arranged for the en
tertainment of visitors at night, by con
tracting for various amusements and
free entertainments to be given free
to all in the court house square every
night. The electric illuminations
which in the past have been so beauti
ful and attractive, will surpass this
year anything ever heretofore seen
and this magnificent display alone will
repay every visitor for the time and
money spent in' visiting the fair.
