"45 Minutes From Broadway" Gen nett Over two million copies of "So Isonz Mary" have been soM by the publishers during the past year. Its sales are said to far exceed that of ar' other song published in recent j years. It is one of the musical num-j bers which Geo. M. Cohan composed for his most' successful comedy, "Forty-Five Minutes from Broadway." and is sung with telling effect by ; Corinne in the last act of the play. It ' never fails to take ten or twelve en- j cores. Its simple ;f id pathetic melo- j dy. so easily to be remembered is now j as familiar to the Boulevards of Par is as in the cafes of New York. Mr. Cohan has only written live musical numbers for this play, relying on the its success, more than on a dazzling chorus, of indifferent music. That it has won the popular fancy has been trroven bv its run of thirty weeks in Chicago and twenty weeks In York. "45 Minutes From Broad way" will be presented at the Gennett next Monday night.

'The Pit" Gennett. WrigKt Huntington will appear at the Gennett Friday night, November 30th, in the dramatized version of Frank Norris famous novel, "The Pit."- "The Pit" deals with the distribu tion of wheat and Is the fictitious narrative of a deal In the Chicago wheat pit. Just as truly as the wheat finally wrecked vengence on S. Behrmer, the representative of the railroad, in "The Octopus" so in "The -Pit" it at length breaks down Curtis Jadwin when ho Is at the height of his vast success in cornering the wheat. He had laid his puny human grasp upon Creation and the very earth herself, the great mother, fooling the touch of the cobweb that the human insect has spun, had stirred at last in her sleep and sent her omnipotence mov ing through the grooves of the world, to find and crush the disturber of her appointed courses. Tim Murphy Gennett. There is every indication that the revival of "Old Innocence" by Tim Murphy will be the most satisfactory undertaking made by. him In some time.

No character por trayed by Tim Murphy quite equaled for truthful simplicity that of Jason Green and in the hands of this ex cellent player .It received in every sense its Inst due Mr Mnrnhv's re vivai 01 via innocence oias lair to Theater Goers of this city i HIS CLEVER RUSE FAILED NOW ACCUSED OF THEFT Express Agent in West Virginia Must Face Charge of Having Robbed His Own Office of $6,000 Had His Wife Wound Him.
