Toner was praised tor the constructive work of his administration and boomed for election again in 1918 at a farewell dinner given in his honor at the Har risburg Cluo on Saturday night. The dinner was unique in that it was,the first of the kind given by HarrisburK ers to a retiring Governor in many years and elaborate in every appoint ment. The idea of the dinner origi nated with a number of personal friends of the Governor in the Hai risburg Club and men with whom the Governor had been in contact during his term were invited. It \yas twice as large as planned. About the board gathered men of prominence in the life of Harrisburg and some from a distance, who came to honor the Governor who will re tire to private life next Tuesday after a most successful administration. There were men of every shade of po litical belief and they all cheered the suggestion that the Governor return. This came in the form of a song arranged to the tune of "Tipperary" and the closing lines of the chorus were "There's a hope in every heart here That you'll be Governor again." When the song was sung as a solo everyone rose to the chorus and cheered the idea to the roof. This thought also ran through the speeches of the evening and the Governor was called upon to say whether lie would accept the nomination. He smiled ana said that he enjoyed his resi dence in Harrisburg and thoroughly appreciated the tribute of the evening as well as the honor of being guest at the dinner. William M. Donaldson, president of the club, was toastmaster and his ref erence to the Governor was heartily applauded and cheered. The speakers of the evening were President Judge Georgo Kunkel, Judge S. J. M. McCar rell, Mayor John K. Royal, Adjutant General Thomas J. Stewart, ex-Seiyi tor John E. Fox, Samuel Kunkel and Charles H. Bergner, others being called upon for impromptu remarks. The decorations were Southern snil lax and roses. The whole banquet hall was hung with smilax and the gallery was hung with flags, the State flag being over the choir of honor. The souvenirs were red leather book lets bearing the Governor's signature on the cover and containing a hand some picture. That presented to the Governor was signed by everyone of the diners. The dinner afforded many an op portunity to say good-by to the Gov ernor and to express their approval of his administration. The roses which decorated the table were sent to Mrs. Tener with the compliments of the diners. Seated at the head table were the Dauphin Judges, the Mayor, the Ad jutant General,' Charles H. Bergner, Dr. Hiram McGowan, William Jen nings, Lewis S. Sadler, Carlisle, and M." C. Kennedy, Chambersburg. The diners included ex-Senator John E. Fox, Dr. J. F. Culp, J. V. W. Reynders, T. L.

ARMGAARD KARI, GRAVES Dr. Graves has been characterized by the British press as "the most danger ous spy of the century." Small won der that England, realizing his knowl edge of German military secrets, was willing to grant him his liberty. His services to Britain more than repaid her for her liberality. As early as last May. Dr. Graves, ad dressing a meeting in New York City, said postively that Europe would lie plunged into a general war before Au gust was well in. He was ridiculed at the time. but subsequent events proved the accuracy of his statements. Dr. Graves' lecture promises to be full of Interest. The war Is the pres ent all-absorbing topic, and Americans like to get their facts tirst handed. Dr. Graves has such facts, and will tell of many of them in his talk here to-mor row night.—Advertisement. F.THGI, HAHHYMORE Extremely welcome announcement is made of the coming engagement at the Majestic Theater, for one performance on Friday evening, January 15, of Miss Ethel Barrymore, who returns In a new play called "The Shadow." The latter is the work of Dario Niccodemi and Michael Morton, the former the author of several French successes produced by Madame Hejane and the latter best known as the author of "The Yellow Ticket." Miss Barrymore's new play was originally written in French for the use of Rejane, but the intolerable war conditions now prevailing in Paris made It possible for Charles Frohman to obtain it for present production In this country with Miss Barrymore in the leading role. "The Shadow,' In its French version named "L'Ombre," was translated Into English bv Mr. Morton. Bruce Mcßea, recalled for his earlier association with Miss Barrymore, In "Sunday," "Lady Frederick," "Cousin Kate," and others of her notable suc cesses, is entrusted with the leading male role. Surrounding players are: Grace Ellisten, Ernest Lawford, Edward I'ieidlng, Amy Veness and Vera Pole.

A second feature attrac tion is entitled "A Breath of Old Vir ginia," Joseph Hart's newest produc tion, that is described by critics as be ing the season's most successful scenic novelty. This act is admirably mount ed and played by a cast of five promi nent Broadway names, headed by Miss June Keith, late feature of "Stop Thief." Another act of headline im portance is that of the Moneta Five, an exquisite vocal and Instrumental act. Three women and two men comprise the quintet and their offering, which Is staged along the most modern lines, is an artistic treat. Smith, Cook and Branden, two men and a woman, are to appear in a clever comedy variety act of singing, talking and dancing'; the Three Gaudschmidts will offer a spirited turn of clever fun and sensa tional tumbling; Viola Gillette and Ned Monroe will present a comic opera skit called "The Silent Opera."
