that time was a wide shallow outlet
to Pine Lake. Stories of the naming
of Holy Island ty King Strang aqd of
Jiis treasqre bijried there are often
told by the llrat settlers and as near
as pan be learned are a follows:
After the Mormons were driven
out of Navoo, Illinois, they, under
the leadership of James (King) Strang
came up Lake Michigan in boats and
settled on Big Boaver Island here
the village of St. James now stands.
Here thev remained for years making
a pretense at farming but being iu
reality pirates. They " spent the
greater part of their tl trie In pillage
and rubbery ajpog the shorps pf the
northern part of Ljake Michigan.
$ets were lifted aud-tjsh stqleu, boats
anrj trans vere appropriated, false
lights put up and vessels wrecked
and their crew never heard of again.
Settlers homes were also pillaged
and stock removed to the island
homes of the rovers.
The government was not! lied and a
war vessel was dispatched to St.
James to investigate, but the crarty
Strang was notified In some way of
her coming and moved all of trie val

"Paid in Full;'
Eugene "Walter's four apt play of
modern Aniprloap life, "Paid in Full'
which hns been such a success for
over live months In Chicago and two
seasons In New York, will be given
in this city for the first time on next
Thursday evening, August 15.
The story of "Paid in Full" is said
to be virile, appealing and distinct
ly original, and to be unfolded by a
set of characters that arc types of
real life, familiar to everyone, and
full of human interest. The scenes
of the play are laid in New York,
and the plot tells of the struirales of a
yoqng married couple who live and
keep up appearances on a 3inall In
come The hushaud, who is a weak
character, rather than submit to the
mortification of poverty, steals from
his employer, and. when his theft is
discorercd, for his own protection Is
willing to sacrifice his wife. Her in
nate goodne-9 saves him and saves
herself. A production In keeping
with the artistic requirements of the
play Is promised.
"The Prince of Tonight"
Something different, from the
usual run of the musical comedy
which contains froth and folly, luter-r
mingled with some rnuah'al jungles,
will be seen when the gqrgeous musir
c.il spectacle "The Prince nf
Tonight," comes to the Temple The
ater, Monday, August 19th.
Tne froth is there and some folly
yet there Is something substantial
about the story the music and the
characters, that has' elevated "The
Prince or Tonight," above the plane
of the ordinary musical offering. It
has been termed by many critics a
musical fantasv. with all the merit
of high class opera. Certainly It has
proved the greatest success In vears.
It Is an alluring conciet. full of pretty
solos and chorus numbers rendered
by attractive girls In fanciful cos
tumes. Adams, Hough and Howard,
who are also well known for their
clever work in a score of musical suc
cesses, have been credited with their
best effort In the writlug of "The
Prince of Tonight," The story, con-
Blatant and of original trend, tells of
a poor but resourceful college youth
who has been badly snubbed by an
heiress whose flirtations he mistakes
tor real love. t the magical mom
ent of the blooming of a century
plant, he in transformed Into a prince
for the one night, of the mythical
land of Lunltania. He is enabled to
win the girl who snubbed him after
all manner of adventure, In the midst
of fairyland scenes lavishly presented.
Among the many song hits are ' Her
Eyes A,re Blue For Yale," "I Can't
Be True So Far Away.""It Is A
near Old World After All," "The
Best Thing A Walter Can Do Is
Wait," "Tonight Will Never Come
Again," and "I Don't Want To
Marry Your Family."
''House of a Thousand Candles'
A most peculiar fact Is, that not
all good stories will make a good play.
In fact, few stories, transplanted
from the realm of "one of the six
best sellers," to the realm of the foot
lights, ever survive one season but
ar relegated to the junk hsp, w ith a
spe3d that gives Mr. Producer pause.
Seldom has a novel, in dramatic form,
been attended with sqch success s.s
"The House of a Thousand f'qndles,"
hy Meredith Nicholson. The play
was first produced at the Hackett
Theatre. In New York, where It ran
for one entire season, and for the past
few seasons has maintained Its place
mong the reallv successful plays oil
Mr. Primrose, the present producer,
has the play equipped in a very sum
ptous mami3r with a complete scenic
equipment, and the cast is an exeel
erit one. To be seen here oa Aug
ust 30th, at Temple Theatre.
