':; Theatrical Mimicry
'- - - - " . ."
-- Berlin, Oct. 6 Berlin's second the
atrical season since the war has begun
is notable for its lack of warlike offer
ings. In all the' mass of plays and
operas now presented or to be pre
sented in the immediate future there
areb ut two of a military nature. Both
of these have . been -'running for
months, and are continuing" because
they have genuine , dramatic value,
rather than because he public fancy
clamors for. anything, warlike. .
Old timers call this beginning "of
Berlin's theaetrical season so nearly
like the opening in peace times that it
is hard to distinguish the difference.
They base this opinion not- alone en
the , attendance, which certainly is
good, but on the very character of the
offerings ' and the absence of plays
suggestive of the war.
The season in 1914 opened with a
tidal wave of "war" plays. Something
of their general, character and. excel
lence may be gathered from the words
of -one of Berlin's weil known dra
matic critics, who,-wrote, "This flood
of well' meant and poorly rhymed,
hastily thrown together; productions
fortunately has ebbed, and the tem
ples of the joyful muss even, follow-
; 1 ' I
ing the example of the more serious
stage, are turning to other, taskes."
The two mlitary plays still; running
are '"Extrablaetter," at - the Berlin
theatre, and "Immer Feste Druffr"iat
the Nollendorf-. Platz theatre. , Both
pieces have been running for-, more
than 300 performances.

- Vienna Oct. v 6- A.' remarkable feat
of marksmanship is reported from the
southwestern ' front, " where many of
the - famous, Tyrolese riflemen are
fighting against the. Italians.'; A troop
of itbe' so-called Kaiser light Infantry,
which was fighting on the poberdo
plateau, jgot into a most;- precarious
position in advance of the Austrian
lines. They -could-not' retreat as the
ground over which they: would have
to run was fully covered by the Ital
ian guns. They held tfieir ground for
several days,,' while "suffering greatly
for lack of food and' water..'
The Italian' artillery -was playing
upon them with' accuracy, being , di
rected by means of 'a. post of observers
on higher ground than that : held' by
the Tyrolese. . It was ' regarded as
necessary . to get rid 'of : that post.
which consisted pf eight Alpini, arid a
Boiaier. wno naa made a reputation for
himself in the Qetzthal is a highly
expert poacher volunteered to under
take the difficult task. Climbing
stealthily by night, as if hunting

eight Italians began to -stijp the, next
morning he quickly picke'dtheiii off,
