" The play is called "Tho One-thm
of the Hour" a yd it do-iis with the
prohibition movement. The score is
laid in Rapids City, Mo., and (!
"-characters are. taken fieri real life
as far a.i possible.- There nro about
lQ:of theai in the play, im Indir.ir; the
- president of the "Anna pura" society.
' ' the' state's., attorney and the sheriff'
of Sage count; and a prominent sa
loonkeeper in the city. The phiy
aims to show that the prihibitie:
movement is folly and that the advo
cacy of temperance is the proper rem
edy of the present existing evil con
ditions. A very pretty love story is
wound into the movement of the
play and some features are ir.iroduo-l
, ed which ought, to moke a hit. For
instance, in one of the acts a news
paper oflice is shown on the stitee and
a paper is actually printed and sold
in the attdicm e. The j ::mt contair.sj
scandalous s'.Rries about the hercinej
of the play and the events leading!

The stcrj- t.f how Mr. Gillespie and
Mr. Ward bcvaaio a,:i;;aia:.ed is a
very k:terc. tini; ( :ie. 'Die lyric writ
er was in i't'-rlia?: on Uimir.o.-s and. as
us'ial, he was hd into a ;r vet . atioa
aL'out milfie. One i f hi-; hee.rers in
formed him that tie city of Sterling
boasted of a lyric, writer of some cal
ibre also, whereupon ?ir. Gillespie ox."
pressed a desire to moot him. When
he did to ho oxpoi it-d that the af
fair would turn out as it had in a
dozen other places, he would moot
a person wjio fancied he had tah-nt
and who would bare Mr. Gillespie
with his rit in.us. Oae ulance at
Ward, however, convinced Mr. Gilles
pie that Ward was somewhat otit of
tho ordinary and that he miiht pos
sess something that tho others did
not.- A little talk and the looking
oer 'of some of his work convinced
Mr. Gillespie that his surmise was cor
rect and hofoi e loay they had ,-t ruck up
an acquaintance u liii.li i.a.; ;;run in
to close friendship.
Mr. Wari thrt'UKh his i.ssot ititir.n
with Mr. Gillespie became known in
Hie theatrical world, and he has boon
offered and has accepted the position
of press agent for the Garrick theater
in Chicago. Herbert Hast", the man
ager of the Garrick. is personally se
lecting the caste for the new play
and will take care of stagin.1;; the production.
