The Devil's Auction . This play was presented at the opera house Tuesday evening to a rather small audience, due to holy week and also to an anticipation that the play would be "raw" The latter surmise was Incorrect. Of course the garments of the score of girls were abbreviated and bifur cated, but such arc noticeable these days iti almost every farce or come dy put on the stage. The play is iree from vulgar slang and the specialties presented were excel lent. Lack of room on the stage prevented the company from using very much of the scenery which it carries. Turkestan Alfalfa Seed. Sunt. Park has received from Congressman Neville a pound of Turkestan alfalfa bccu wliicii lie will plant on his farm Hub season to Bee how it adapts itaelt to this country. In appearance it does not materially differ from the ordinary alfalfa except that the leaf is rather lurry ana its value a fodder is about equal, but it will grow in the dryest kind ot a cli mate where the ordinary alfalfa cannot be made to live at all. It crows on the tableland in Turk estan and is so highly valued bythe natives that they only consented to let a representative of the United States goverment who. was sent after sornj seed, have a ver3' mall amount. The goyerment is planting the seed on its experi ment farms with a view of in creasing the amount so that small quan'. tics may be distributed next year. "OirX Prom Chili." W. L.

As the ' Girl From Chili," Miss Edna. Ellsmcre was simply charm ing, while Miss May Courtney as Harrietta Tattcrsall left nothing to be desired. These actresses possess the three great requisites of success, youth, beauty and talent. Miss Carmelita Vost in the char acter part of Primrose made a de cided hit, and Miss Mae Baxley, as Helen, drew all that was possible out ot a small part. The perform ance was made additionally satis factory by musical specialties equal to the best ever seen in this citv, by Master Tate and Misses Courtney and lOllsmcrc.
