' I The old adage that "all the world, loves a lover" is absolutely true. The' world sill also always pay to see and hear laugh-making situations and lines. People must laugh and they will go where they can laugh, even if banks lull and business goes to the bow-wows, for laughter is the mainspring of bvelth. Love and] Paughter are the two things that' make life worth living, and there is said to be a plenty of both in "The Traitor". j According to tit? advance man, thISj play is especially recommended by all p-putable physicians for thin peo? ple who wish to add to their avoir? dupois and for all those who suffer from dyspepsia and kindred ills, and in fart for every one who needs a big dose of sunshine. There is also enough thrill In the play to awaken every faculty of enjoyment j There Is no section of the country lhat affords auch iiosalbllitles for the playwright as the Southland, for it; is the home of romance, of laughter, and of dramatic surprla w. The story of the Ku Klux Klan is regarded by many as the most dramatic in modern history, as was proven by the unprec? edented success of "The Clansman". The Interest in this mysterious^"or? ganization which was arouwd by Mr. Dlxon's former play is sure to attract multitudes of theatre-goers for the scenes attending the dissolution or this famous order and the organiza? tion of ignoble imitations, are preg? nant with dramatic possibilities. Th se are said to utilized to thej fullest extent in "The Traitor''. No story of reconstruction days can elimi? nate the relations of the races in the South, but "The Traitor" brings more into prominence the whit..- man who followed in the footsteps of Benedict Arnold. In the South the "3callawag" and "Buffalo" was more bitterly hated than was the alien carpet-bagger. Whll > these types as presented in the play are interesting the chief In? terest centers in the specimens of Southern manhood and womanhood portrayed One of the beat charac? ters in the "The Traitor" is that of a rough uncouth, but true and loyal mountaineer. The scenic settings In which tue action of this play is developed are claim M to be more elaborate and beautiful than any utilised heretofore for any play of the South, for the scenes arc laid in that section of the country that has become known by the poetic appellation of "The Land of the Sky", probably the moat pic? turesque spot in the United States. No expense has been spared in trans? ferring to canvas th<> rare beauties of nature that are found in this region, and every effort has been made to reproduce the quaint atmos? phere of the latter days of the Old South. It is said that no detail, how? ever small, has been overlooked in the endeavor to obtain accuracy in scenery, oftatunieu .and scoosories. The cast of "The Traitor", which includes thirty speaking parts, is said to be the most notable which has been sent on tour through the South. Many mouths were spent by th > management In the selection of the actors for the varin.i? roles so the actors for the various roleo. Seats go on sale at the box office Monday morning, Sept. 28.
