AMUSEMENTS. Eve*y play, to be niccetaful, -unit have a atrong root, aod that root must rest in ihe healthy, fertile soil of truth. There is no contesting or disputing this assertion. Ot course, tbere are plenty of dramas of various kiods wbich deal with tbe superficial, teach nothing, do nothirg (except furoiab an eveniog'a en? tertainment), reach no definite argument but unless tbey have embedded io tbeir hart something big aod fundamental, they are all too soon lost by the wayside. Some if tbeae plays are counted as suc? cesses from tbe box-office viewpoint, but tbey do not help io the bog run. They do not help the dramatist; they do not help the playgoer. Ameiica is rapidly brooming the center of ibe world's ai a_e. We have now every possible kind of dramatic material and plenty of yoong men and yoong women who are capable of haodling tbat material and presenting wit. verity conditions of life with which they are cogn'atnt. This fact la proved by tbe vaudeville and motion pictures shown in tbis city each nigbt. The Opera House was packed laat night with people to see one ed the beet vaadevllle shows which could be put oa tbe stage; the Surprise waa likewiae crowded to see wbat is said to be one of tbe great? est *?hows io its existence; the Alexan? dria Amusement Company was also crowded to tbe limit to see tbe talkiog and ailent pictures, which are not sur? passed io thia eily or elsewhere, and tbe Elite getting its share of tbe amusement loving public aod showing the largest pictures to be aeen in this city.

Cutler, pastor of St. Mary'B Ohurcb, this city, assisted by Rev. J. D. Marr, pastor of Immaculate Concep? tion Church, Washington, Mill be wit? nessed by only the immediate relatives of the cootratting parties. After a wed? ding toor through tbe north Mr. and Mra. Hoy will make their borne in this city. FUNEBAL The funeral of tbe late N. Augoatos Batts, who died last Sunday night, took place from the resideoce, 424 north Columbus street, at noou todsy.
