The story has been dramatized and the play was presented at the Lyceum last evening by the stock company before the regular Monday night audience. The Play follows closely the main lines of the book, . bringing into prom inence its principal features. St. Elmo is the son of Mrs. Murray, a rich southern woman. He had been in love with Agnes Powell, his cousin and she Instead of returning Jiis af fection was wooed by. his friend, Mur ray Hammond, for whom he had built a church, expected him to offi ciate at the marriage ceremony of himself and Miss Powell and when he learned how false he had been ,St. Elmo challenged him to a duel and shot him dead. Edna Earl, granddaughter of Aaron Hunt saw the killing and for years regard ed the victor as a man to be ahborred. She went away, was injured in a rail road wreck, was removed to Mrs. Murray's home where she again met St. Elmo and though others wooed her, and Miss Powell who made her home there, sought to make it un pleasant for her, the purity of her character softened the heart of St. Elmo and when the curtain falls the couple are clasped in each ether's arms. The story is very interesting and retains a grip on the audience from the beginning to the end. Mr. Black more played St. Elmo with force and determination and as he saw the lit tle orphan girl, who had come to her grandfather's blacksmith shop in her bare feet and witnessed the duel, grow in the affections of his mother and prove so different to the women he had met, his . heart softened; he deeply regretted fiis killing of Mur ray Hammond arid the change that came over him was shown in his work in striking contrast to the wicked spirit he had previously ex hibited. His enunciation was good and his lines were given with expres sion. The Edna Earl of Miss Skir vin was very close to the character so splendidly drawn by the author, innocent, but prouq, and with a true gentleness of spirit and manner tlat was pleasant to see- Mrs. Hibbard played Mrs- Murray with quiet dignity, and Miss Perry as Agnes Powell showed that personage to be a most objectionable, lady around the house. Mr. Birch did an excellent bit of character work as Aaron Hunt, Mr. Mullin did well as the negro servant and the other characters were satis factorily presented. The settings were splendid, Old Lookout Mountain, at Chattanooga, Tenn., always being seen in the distance. ATHLETES PLAY BIG PART AT KEENEY'S Athletes play an important part in entertaining the Keeney patrons this week, the two big attractions being presented by acrobats and cyclists. Both numbers are of the first order and "first nighters" appreciated them greatly. The headliner is offered by the Four Bards, gymnastic wonders, who please with a series of spectacu lar feats, including some sensational hand balancing. The Bards are won derfully well developed and have powerful physiques. They do some remarkable feats, their balancing stunts , being particularly fine. They use a gymnasium setting for their act. The cycle act introduces to local theatergoex-s the Five Armstrongs, three male riders and two clever young ladies. They ride several types of wheels including freak machines and besides giving a thrilling exhibi tion of their skill, they introduce a great deal of original comedy features. Their act has a novel character and they keep things busy every minute. The young ladies in the quintet are the true type of girl athlete. They are swimmers and skaters of excep tional ability and besides are ardent motorists. , Another really popular number i3 Marie d'Arville's singing specialty. Miss d' Arville, who is known as the Melba of vaudeville has a dramatic soprano voice of power and sweetness. She sings three numbers, winning par ticular praise for her admirable ren dition of "My Hero" from "The Chocolate Soldier." In this number her voice is heard to best advantage, although she finds favor with . the audience in her other songs as well. Her audience is captivated with "Don't You Wish You Were Back Home" and also enjoys the pretty Spanish selections with which she opens her act. Whalen, West and Whalen have a neat comedy sketch, with songs and dances intermingling. There is plenty of snap to this trio and their turn should be popular all week.

WITH BUSTLE EFFECT. HIGH OR NATURAL WAIST LINE. Drapery at the back that conveys the suggestion of a bustle is new and smart and here is a skirt that shows it handled with unusual success. The drapery is arranged to form pretty folds at the front and width over the hips and, inci- dentally, the skirt is all made in one piece, so that it can not mean much labor, Beneath the upper portion, there is a smooth fitting yoke and the skirt is slashed across the back to allow of plaits and folds. The model is an excellent one for the taffeta that has taken such a firm hold upon the fashionable world and almost all the fashionable silks and crepes and it also is much liked for the spring suiting materials, for the model is equally smart for the indoor gown and for the street costume. Since the finish can be made at either the high or the natural waist line, all figures can be accommo dated. Taffeta is the material illus trated and taffeta seems to suit the mode peculiarly well. ,For the medium size, the skirt will re quire 4 yds. of material 27, 2 yds. 36, 44 or 52 in. wide. The width of the skirt at the lower edge is I yd. and 14 in. The pattern of the skirt 8217 is cut in sizes from 22 to 30 inches waist measure. It will be mailed; to any address by the Fashion Department of this piper, on receipt of ten cents. Household Notes The marketing should ; be sorted and put away as soon as it comes into the house. If it is allowed to wait until what seems a .convenient time to attend to it the meat and vegetables may lose some of their freshness. Kerosene will remove r-heavy grease from children's clothes, espe cially that from automobiles. Lay the greasy portion of the cloth in a basin and cover it with kerosene. 'Let it stand for an hour or so and then rub between the hands. The following are a few simple rules in economy: Never buy a cheap material when you can get a better product. Pay cash; credit is costly. Buy non-perishable food products in quantities. Watch the household closely and eliminate all waste.

A very good way to dispose of slices of toast and scraps of bread Is to brown all in the oven, then roll and sift, then when you bake - cookies or sand tarts, three or four cups of the crumbs are used in place of part of the flour called for in the recipe. If you are anticipating planting a flower garden, remember the flower borders are more important as they are so decorative. Elight plants against a background are more effec tive than fifty in an open yard. 'Bor ders against fences are particularly pretty. It is much more economical to mar ket each day, if you are near the markets and plan your marketing ac cording to the market conditions. There are slight rises and falls from day. to day, and if carefully watched by the careful housewife, a few pen nies may be saved. Crocuses may be had in winter if treated like the Japanese lily bulbs. Put the bulbs in a shallow earthen, dish of water half filled with pebbles. Keep them in a dark place for a little while, and then in the light, but do not et them in the sunlight until the flower buds are formed. A pretty way of arranging anemones is to put them in a, shallow pottery f bowl. First, arrange a ring of moss so that it does not touch the sides. Then make a space in the center of the moss, add the water and arrange the flowers to form an outer circle. The center is also filled with flowers.

And no one knew of his brother's high , adventure. Men walked brushing elbows with angels, unawares." Henry Sydnor Harrison. Haven't you often had the feeling Mr. Harrison so cleverly describes in that paragraph? Haven't you often looked about you in a crowd and suddenly been impressed with the fact that each of these creatures against whom you are Jostling so unconcernedly, and who mean so little to you, means everything in the world to himself? Each to himself is Just as significant and important and real' as you are to yourself. Each being in that conglomerate crowd is the center of a little uni verse of friends, relatives, loves, hates, employers, subordinates, acquaint ances, hopes and fears, triumphs and disappointments. Each has a home of one sort or another, of which he is, to himself at least, the center. com uiuiviuuai in mat mass is just as wrapped up m nimseif ana his relationships as you are in yourself and. your relationships. You touch elbows with your next door neighbor, and yet you two are , actually as far apart as. the planet Mars and the earth. The isolation of souls is a wonderful and solemn thought that sometimes takes possession of me. No matter In what close physical and intellectual Intimacy with other human beings we may live, after all, the soul, the core of us, is remote. Souls are like planets. Each moves In its own orbit, and under normal conditions no other planet can possibly come nigh It. v 10 nuuucuuj uun cioseiy gxea.1 love can uiiiig iwo inuiviuuais to gether, and yet is it not even more remarkable how far apart It still leaves them?, By social converse, by intimacies, by. confidences, by herding together, in wedlock, in families, in clubs and society, we hide our aloneness from ourselves. And yet it still exists. And now and then in some rare moment of reflection and analysis it rises to confront us.

Woman Thinks There Should Be Mr. President and Mrs. President Also That While, in Office White House Should Be Closed to the Stork Opposition to Hat Rack Woman. Sex co-ooeration. not sex antago - ninm waa the feminist ideal advanced by Miss Mabel Powers ai a muTiB held under the auspices of the Wom en's Political union at 4 West For tieth street, New York city, Sunday afternoon. As a forecast of the fu ture when this ideal shall have been realized Miss Powers quoted from a tract on suffrage by Winifred Stoner, the eleven-year-old "wonder child of Pittsburg," who speaks nine lan guages, .Is ready to enter Stanford university, and Is a perfect , physicpT being. This is the way it looks to Winifred Stoner: "I think we should have two pres idents of the United , Statesa Mr. President and a Mrs, President. They ought to be of the same political party, and it would be better if they were married. But they ought not have very many children to look af ter; and while they are president the doors of the White House should be closed . to the . stork." , ' Something like ' this is what the future is bringing, said Miss Power,'!. The best man Is forty-nine per cent, feminine; the best woman Is forty nine, masculine. In the perfect comradeship of the future man and woman will return to the Garden of Eden which they left hand In hand. There is no "man's work" and no "woman's work;' anything is work for any one who - can do it, and the humanity of the future will recognize this. "Whereas now," said Miss Powers, "when a woman works she gets a woman's wage; when she sins she gets a man's wage, and then some." NOW THIS SPRlNG-TIME-consult your own best interests. Use Beecham's Pills to purify your blood. Let this famous medicine give you the buoyant spirits, the glorious feelings of splendid health ! Do not delay !

"You never hear of a stag dinner among stags," eaid the speak er. . "They say there are things that they talk about In stag dinners that women should not hear; but there Is nothing that women should not hrnr If It Is worth talking about at all. The club of the future will be not a man's club or a womari's piub but a club for both." : ' . Miss Powers has . a particular dis like for some kind of individualp; and chief among these Is that to which she referred as the "flippant, purposeless patterns of femininity on the Fifth avenue pavement, content to live the life of the luxurious lip dog." .- T". ' ' The origin of this type of wotnn Miss Powers explained by jSaying that when primal man had won a victory, he had. to have some place to de posit the beads and necklaces; and other spoils of war. He had no home not even a cave, as yet and it was too much trouble v to carry them around,. 80 he hung them on his partner; woman was . degraded from a mate to a hat rack, and from this beginning. we have the plaything women of .today.
