"Mr. Irvine was , rector of the

immorality. The specific charge was
that he had been unduly familiar with
a woman relative living in his home.
"The charge and subsequent trial

All Who Invade Premises Without
First Obtaining Per
mit. Country between Coal Valley and
Orion is a favorite stamping ground
for the Kock Island hunter, but not
in all instances has he gotten consent
from the farmer before chasing after
game on his place.
The farmers are up in arms in that
section, and 3"i of them have held a
meeting and formed a cooperative as
sociation for the prosecution of all
trespassers. Attorneys are to be re
tained and when a hunter is detected
on a farm from whose owner he has
not obtained a permit action will be
forthwith commenced against him, if
he has killed accidentally, as is so of
ten the case, any stock, damages will
be sought to restore the loss that the
farmer sustained by reason of the
carelessness of the hunter.
Will I'M Trlrpkoue.
Most of the farmers in the associa
tion have the telephone, and through
this agency they will manage to keep
each other posted as to the movements
of the hunters.
to the memory of the Gilbert & Sulli
van successes, there is a dialogue that
departs from the vulgarity that so
many of the latter day operas teem
with and is clever enough to extract
laughs without the aid of a slap-stick
or a strenous oscillatory stunt, and.
though difficult to imagine, there is a
plot, and one that can not be very well
forgotten until the tangle is unraveled
at the end of the second act. The
weather and the fact that "Kitty" is
not as well known as others of the
season's operas augered unfavorably
from a box office standpoint, but the
audience was a most appreciative
one, demanding three curtain calls at
the end of the first act. Of course
there are spots in the opera whero
there could be improvements, but
these are not noticeable enough to
call for criticism, and taken as a
whole. "Kitty" is the best musical en
tertainment of the year thus far.
The story of the play is sufficiently
complicated to permit of a great num
ber of amusing situations. Kitty is a
winsome, headstrong and pretty girl
who is in love with a lieutenant in the
French Hussars. She is the' ward of
an accent ric aunt who is determined
that Kitty shall not marry at all be
cause of her youth. Kitty is determin
ed to marry her handsome lieutenant
and they arrange an elopement. In a
series of accidents they become sepa
rated ami Kitty., pursued by her aunt,
reaches the meeting place ahead of the
lieutenant. She must be married at
once before lier aunt whom she has
locked in a pastry cook's pantry es
capes, in ner trouoie sue tuscovcrs
that her lieutenant lover's orderly has
arrived with his masters' uniform. Kit
ty coaxes the orderly to don the uni
form and act as a proxy for the lieu
tenant and be married to her. He is
a stupid orderly and a screamingly
funny scene follows. The aunt escapes
from the pantry and intercepts the
wedding by causing the orderly to be
sent to prison for kidnaping Kitty.
There is another officer whose love
affairs mingle in a humorous way with
the love troubles of Kitty. This other
officer is a nephew of the commanding
tneral and he cannot marry until he
is 23 years of age without forfeiting a
fortune to his uncle. He has. however.
married secretly. His wife follows him
to camp. He does not want her known
as his wife and introduces her as the
wife of Kitty's lover. There is a fun
ny captain who, while traveling in a
railroad car with Kitty and her eccen
tric old aunt, fell in love with Kitty.
She, a bit of a flirt by nature, encour
ages him and gave him a card telling
him to write often. He did not get the
card, however. The mischief loving
Kitty gave him instead the card of
her old aunt who supposes her husband
dead and is willing to marry again. The
captain corresponds with the aunt.
thinking that he is writing to Kitty and
finally proposes marriage and is ac
cepted. When he finds at camp that
the girl with whom he fell in love Is
about he attempts to make love to
Kitty, but she tells him he has been ac
cepted as the future husband by her
aunt and he will be lucky if he escapes
Kitty gets her name of "Sergeant
Kitty" when she dresses in the cos
tume of the orderly to aid her in her
plans to get married and reach her
lover from whom she Is again sepa
rated by military orders. While in the
soldier's costume she Is forced to tell
who she is and she says that she is an
officer and when pressed says she is
a sergeant. Then unthinkingly she
says her name is Kitty. In the end, of
course, as in the end of all good comic
operas, the complications are all
straightened out and the various lovers
are duly married to their sweethearts.
Miss Helen Byron is the mischievous
Kitty; Edith Blair is the beautiful pri
ma donna; Charles Wayne is the chief
fanmaker and Miss Virginia Palmer is
the c-cccntric old aunt. Others in the
list of principals are Myrtle Iorimer,
Clara Lillian Seville, Clara Sterling.

Strong Characters in Arizona.
Whether taken as a whole or in part
"Arizona" holds the attention of both
the casual playgoer and the one who
wish.es to go deeper into the story of
the passion of life. The environment
is such that one finds ceaseless at
traction in this bit of dialogue or that
bit of action. The characters are such
that the soldiers, the cowboy and the
woman, one after another occuply the
principal place. Having chosen an ap
pealing theme for his story, Augustus
Thomas, the author, also selected a col
lection of people who could not only
preserve all the virtue which there Is in
the central idea, but who would each,
by contrast to the other, carry the cen
tral plan, and make this mimic world
seem like a real one. The force of the
characters and the excellence of the
situations are backed up by dialogue
which s always brisk, as the talk of
the west should be, and which has a
lightness now. or a somberness then
that is as distinct as the mountains
and the shadows that form the back
ground of the sceues. "Arizona" is
here Sunday evening.
Miss McXinney Hit in Part.
Miss Magaret McKinney, who has
made a hit of large proportions as
"Dudley" in "San Toy." the part op
posite to that played by James T. Pow
ers, has had quite an adventurous car
eer for a girl who does not find it ne
cessary to produce the family bible or
affidavit from her parents to prove that
she has just turned 21. Miss McKin
ney is a western girl, born on the
shores of the magnificent Puget Sound,
on the Washington coast, and her home
is in Seattle, where her family is promi
nent, her father being heavily interest
ed in mines and lumbering. Miss Mc
Kinney, or Miss "Peggy," as she is
known to her close associates, is far
more familiar with the broad plains
and mountain trails of the west than
MARGARET M'KINNEY, IN' "SAX
she is with the haunts of the late din
ners in New York and the latter
knowledge is something that every girl
connected with the stage in a promi
nent way is supposed to be conver
sant with. She has been all over the
west, covering a large section of the
country in the saddle, and four years
ago invaded Alaska in company with
her father who went to look up some
mining properties. The facilities for
getting in and out at that time were
not as convenient as now, and little
"Peggy" had to endure many hard
ships. On the trip into Skaguay she
learned all about the rigors and dan
gers of Chilkoot pass and other places
that were anything but inviting to a
slip of a girl; and just to show that she
is possessed of a commercial mind,
she sent several lengthy articles to the
western papers during her stay In the
mining camp, and drew good sized
checks for her enterprise. Miss Mc
Kinney haboyn'on the stage but three
years. He&,HrEt engagement was with
"King Dodo," the next with Jefferson
D'Angelis, and the current season finds
her playing opposite to Mr. Powers in
"San Toy." Her success has been such
that it is not unlikely John C. Fisher,
who holds a long term contract with
her, will some day find it convenient to
place her at the head of her own com
pany. Miss McKinney comes in "San
Toy" tomorrow evening.
