St. Elmo is Given
Fine Presentation
By Lyceum Players
When Mrs. Augusta Evans Wilson
wrote St. Elmo she gave to the world
one of the greatest of stories and pre
sented a character unique in the
land of fiction and also drew a pict
ture of love and tenderness on the
one hand on the part of an orphan
girl and showed how the influence of
her beautiful character changed the
whole course of the life of a wicked
man. 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
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 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.

217 One-Piece Skirt, 22 to 30 waist.
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.

Then make a space in the center of

the flowers to form an outer circle.
The center is also filled with flowers.

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.

You touch elbows with your next door neighbor, and yet you two are ,

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.

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

which she referred as the "flippant,
purposeless patterns of femininity on

Miss Powers explained by jSaying that

it was too much trouble v to carry
