Lincoln J. Caiter's seen ie produc
tion. "The Fast Mail.'1 was presented
at Harper's theatre last evening to a
well pleased and euce. The scenery
was the feature, the railroad trains,
the flight of the fast mail, the steam
boat explosion a:id the Niagara Falls
being the most realistic. The play
abounds in striking situations and is
full of dramatic iiCtion.
The farceeo-uedy. "Little Nugget,"
is just the kindo: entertainment that
theatre-goers w nit it consists of
three acts. Tlu first a smile, the
second a laugh a id the third a roar.
There are never no sedate, dignified
people in tlieaud enecs. but everyone
will be laughing, and the ones'vou
would suppose ti le cynical are just
the ones that cast reserve aside and
w ho.ip. Herbett Caw thorn, w ho
heads the list of artists, is a "Teat
Irish comedian, md when he fails to
make you laugh "all the world and
the balance of m mkind," as Mr. Jef
ferson once expressed it might as
well give up. Miss Florence Wheel
er, in the title lole, is a winsome,
captivating soubrette, and her danc
ing and singing a strong feature of
the show. The -est of the cast are
on par w ith the above mentioned and
our advice to all who enjoy a hearty
laugh is don't -niss it. at Harper's
theatre next F'rid iv eveniii".
i.ifc Guns For 1 ire men.
Had the fire dens rtuient been eoni-vrwl
with aiiriaratns fir tlirowintr rimes tti
great heights or cistances, such as are
earned uy mi lite favmg stations, many
lives could have Wen saved from the
flames at the cold Ptorapre fire. Everv
it.an who est aped i live did so by a flim
sy rope. With a proper pun or cannon
a rope or Jinmbers of them could have
beta shot tip over the tower and made
fat by the imprisoned men. The ropes
can be rendered noncombustible. No
new or expensive machinery would be
required. At the life saving station at
Jackson park cot Id have been found
htiire etjjis with endless foila -f Uf..1in
attached. The gins fire a heavy spear,
wmcn carries tne .iteiine out to wrecks,
helpless boat aim! f'rnmiiTi-mf.Ti Tn-on
ty such lifelines could have been fired up
ana over tne onrni ig tower. Even- shot
of the gun would have saved the "life of
a brave fireman.
With the Inch "mildino-s in th lmai.
ness center such apparatus would be
most valuable anc could be carried on
every hose cart. I idividnals imprisoned
in the tenth ston . rnt, off from nil r.-
cape, could be savt d. A lance could Ijo
shot into the wind .w and the rope maao
fast. Nothing would be easier. If the
gun, the lance and the rope are good to
save lives at sea, why not use fireproof
ropes to save men from death by fire?
