his ultimate object. He is not permit

Frederic Thompson, the producer,
has furnished a scenical eqiuiplment
for the play which, from all accounts
has proved sensational. The third
act-in the scene aboard the yacht
one of Brewster's money-spending de
vices--there is a marvelous and par
ticularly effective bit of stage craft.
In this scene a storm arises and the
stage settings, the movements of the
waves, the lightning effect, all com
bine to make it a particularly real
istic and interesting stage. effect. The
chief character, that of "Monty" Brew
ster is in the hands of the well-known
and versatile young actor, Louis Nil
son. The heroine will be essayed by
the dainty and talented Katherine
Francis. The other long list of- char
acters will be represented by names
well known on the mimic stage.
Brewster's Millions will be given at
the City Opera House on Tuesday ev
ening, March 31. Tickets go on sale
at the Powe Drug 'Company Friday
morning. Prices 50c, 75c and $1.00.

Federal Prisoner Released.
B. S. Black, the young federal pris
oner who has been in the custody of
the sheriff here for the past five
months, will be released today, one
month ahead of the regular time, this
much having been gained through good
behavior. it will be remembered
that this young man, a native of Lau
rens county, was convicted in the fed
eral court at Greenville of receiving
stolen property. Although the jury
rendered a verdict of guilty, the court
evidently took the view that there
were some very mtiigating circum
stances connected with the case and
gave him a very lenient sentence. His
friends have held out from the first
that hie was more a victim of'circum
stances than anything else and they
have stoutly denied that he was cog
nizant of any wrong doing when ar
rested. The young man has been a
model prisoner, making himself very
useful and companionable around the
jail. The sheriff said yesterday that
while of course, lie rejoiced with the
young man in gaining his liberty again
yet it was with quite a pang of re
