which has been the starting point of

amounted to anything. He secured an

also the best
from a' financial
pan j, ted the first put of an j eonwqococa
that wat entrusted to him was that of La
Diane, and bis name baa aver since
bean linked to thia jolly character
aa that of i(i beet interpreter.
Then he played the Pirate Chief
in "The Corsair," a part which, it it did
not particularly advance hint in hla career,
added to hia experience, which waa the
one thing needful at thia period. With
"The Corsair" he considered hia prelimi
nary education in the field of burleaqua
ended, and be now began to tarn hie at*
tention to a higher elaaa of work in farce
and comedy. "Hobbiee" waa hia first
effort intbis direction, and hie work at
once attracted the attention of the critica
and the public, by both of whom it waa
favorably received. But there waa a lin
gering I face of burleaque in "Hobbiee."
which wee entirely wiped away in hia
next play, "Confnaion," where, in the role
of Christopher Blizzard, he confined hlra
aelf entirely to the field of genteel comedy.
Hia success in thia character waa com
plete and emphatic, and the word went
abroad from one end of the land to the
other that the coming American comedian
had bee*i found; that legitimate comedy
waa noli to die with Jefferson and Owen,
but that a worthy aucceaaor had already
appeared. Of course Mr. Goodwin had not
achieved perfection at thia time, but he
had givrn unmistakable proof that per
fection eas within his reach, and that he
waa the kind of man who would never rest
until he had reached the goal aet
for himself. So quickly had hia
fame snread that he waa invited to
appear at the great Cincinnati dramatic
festival at which only actors of established
fame were seen. He accepted the call and
played Modus in "The Hunchback," and
the firat gravedigger in "Hamlet," receiv
ing the moat cordial praise for hla work in
these two widely different characters.
Then he played in "Lend Me Five ghill
luirs" *nd "Grlngoire" and "The Gold
Mine," establ.shing hia versatility a# an
actor a-»d proving that he waa equal to the
requirements of pure comedy, that he
could touch pathos aa feelingly aa he
could iuterpret wit and immor. Hia repu
tation now established beyond the tear
of disaster and he made a trip to Europe,
eapturiltg the sta:d critics of London as
completely as he had those of bis native
land, it is London aeaton was the most
successful. artistically and financially, of
that of any American actor who has
braved the criticisms of a foreign country.
Mr. Goodwin's fame has been
constantly increasing, and with each new
play he has revealed new force, which had
hitherto been unsuspected. He bas been
seen in new parte since he
l>egan bis career aa a star, a record which
no American actor can boast, and
each creation has been original and totally
unlike anything that has gone before. In
"A Uii'led Fool," hia latest production,
the con&dian ia said to have had the beat
character he has yet created, and its suc
cess ha* been so great that he will present
nothing else this season.

Anna Eva Fay, a conspicuous figure for
a numter of year*, appears tonight in the
New Seattle theater in what she is pleased
to term a scientific seance of theosophy
and spiritualism. As Misa Fay ia on a cu

yon see I am not strong."
Indeed, she is a mors slip of a woman—
•lender, nervous and nigh strunr. and she
baa steady fray eye*. Sbe is accustomed
to skepticism, hot she answers doubting
questions with as calm an air of certainty
aa if aha wars announcing that tha ana
shone instead at uttering marvels that
turn the accepted laws of nature against
themselves and eliminate probability from
the whole scheme of things.

I Wth that I will succeed? Indeed, I
knee. I hope to secure it aad make it talk,
not to tbeoeopbista merely as a cloak mys
tery. but publicly and to any one who
cares to know the truth.
"How did I become a tbeoeophist? I
think 1 was born on*. From my *ariisat
childhood I was conscious of a Strang*
companionship Advice was whispered in
ray **r when I waa a woman. My people
were spiritualists, so there was nothing to
startle me in the manifestations of a su
pernatural presence. As I grew older the
presence became mote tangible and the
knowledge came to me that my adviser
waa one of the aetrala. I asked of him
why my mother never came any more.
When I waa a child it was my dead moth
er's form and voice that addressed me.
The astral told me that he came in that
form not to frighten me."
Miss Fay told this simply, aa if super
natural visits were th* things
in th* world.
From th* adepts Miss Fay skipped to
the reincarnation article in the faith. One
ot the argument* against reincarnation as
generally received is that as a -man is re
incarnated as a human infant, and as a
man's soul after d**th still remains a
conscious and complete entity, the ques
tion arise*, what becomes of tb* reincar
nated spirit's knowledge during the baby
hood of its new existence? Miss Fay gem
round this by believing that the soul that
lives out one life here is reincarnated In
another planet, and that this is the first
step in the great scheme of advancement.
Reincarnation proeeeds indefinitely. Con
trary to Mrs. Beaant and most other emi
nent theosophiata, Mies Fay believes in no
retrogression. Movement ia only upward,
and what be haa learned and earned in life
determinea a man'a position in the next
atage, but it ia unfailingly higher than here.
The casting of the aatral ia the one thing
above all othere that makea people com
mortiy free from "iams" curious about
tbeoeopby, and Miaa Fay knowa all about
that, so ahe waa naked how ahe did it.
"Thera ia no proceea about it at all." ahe
answered. "You amply will it so, and so
it ia. It ia not hard to separate the pbysi
cal from the psychic body. \ou do it
when you aleep. Thai ia all. The physi
cal body remaiae aa if dead, the mental
counterpart moves. It really ia the ego—
your aenaea, your mind. It will ait in a
chair and a glaaa of water will be behind a
screen in another part of the room. I will
it and that glase of water will be at my
mouth. My astral haa brought it; my
material body haa not moved. I have done
that a thouaand timaa before audiencea of
thouaanda. There ia no apparatus, no
darkening of the hall, no poaaibility of

power. Mme. Blavatskv knew no such
thing as apaceor place. Where abe wis tied
to be, there ahe waa. I rarely have aent
my aatral body more than « few yards.
Once, when I waa a young girl, ao inno
cent that I did not know what I did, my
aatral was projected from London to Tans.
I was at London, and my power* had just
begun to attract attention. At the sug
gestion of aorne leading theosophiats I
sent my mental self to a studio whtre an
eminent photograpber had been called to
await me, and there, wh>le 1 waa aenselesa
in London, the photographer aaw me enter
a room and took a picture of me. The ex
periment was a perfect success. You ask
me why I do not attempt such things
now. Ido not feel the strength in my
body. There was a theosophist who cast
his astral from Brighton to London, you
will remember. It came to London right
enough and made many manifestations
there, but it never returned to the physical
body. The theosophist'a body was found
at Itriphton. The doctors, i believe, said
he di»*d of heart disease."
"Miss Fay. how should one begin to
learn to be a theosophist?"
•"Seek and ye shall receive," she an
swered smiling; "'there can be no knowl
edge without faith."

Seattle theater next Monday and Tueeday
nights. June 5 and 6, in a grand revival of
the famous comedy "The Mighty Dollar."
A play brimful of fun as "The Mighty
Dollar" Is has a perennial freshness. It
never grows iu.«. Its exquisite humor
and its picturesque and pleasant satire are
as taking today aa in the earlier days when
Mrs. Florence created the role of Mrs.

Gen. GUflory, a character whose charm
will laat always and preserve a niche for
herself ta the history of dramatic art.
Her acting it of the best and most natural
art. The humor which she throws into
tha character of Mrs. Gen. Gilflory is a
contagion which keeps her audience in
constant laughter. She plays it with
sfßrit and with that artistic nonchalance
and grace which merge the identity of the
actress into the identity of her creation.
The gowns she wears in the piece are of
the richest description, and are the work
of Felix, the Parisian milliner.
Mlae Carrie S. Rudolph,
America's favorite entertainer and charac

Miss Rudolph's impersonations are not

quite as efficient ia rendering German and
Irish dialect. She has a dramatic manner,
a tine presence, a magnificent elocution.
The New York World says that she is ona
of the most delightful entertainers of tha

The tendency of the times is towards "department stores.**
It has been demonstrated that the combining of Many lines
under one management gives the customers
the advantages of lowest prices upon best
MODERN qualities. In Seattle and the state of
TFKDFIVrV Washington the Big Store has been to
this section what the great Eastern depart
ment houses are to the cities in which they are located. It has
been called -the Wanamaker's ot Seattle." It offers to its
patrons every advantage of lowest prices and best qualities. It
buys in large quantities and sends each season five buyers to
market, one buyer residing in New York. There are many
points about this big department store that are to your advant
age and they are worth studying.
At the outset of the season
we said that we were showing
the largest and finest stock of
dress trimmings ever brought
to the state. The same may
be truthfully said now, and also
that the stock is larger than is
desirable. Therefore we pro
pose to make an extensive
clcaring of the surplus in the
department this week. To do
this we have made reductions
on many lines that are of un
paralleled deepness. This
special sale gives you the chance
to garnish an old or new dress
with the very latest style trim
mings at actually less than first
cost prices.
The reductions in the trim
mings are as follows:
