Seats on sale Monday. AMUSEMENTS. At the Jefferson. A packed house greeted “Hoity Toity” at the Jefferson last night. A large crowd was sadly disappointed lr. the afternoon when the company failed to arrive in time for a matinee performance. Although many lingered for an hour or more it was finally decided that the performance would have to be called off, since there was not enough time to put up the scen ery. As was promised, the “Hoity Tolty” is simply a melange of fun and nonsense, but It took well with the crowd last night, and applause was frequent. If there was a plot no one was aware of the fact. The scenic and electrical effects were good, es pecially the boating song which was re ceived with much enthusiasm. ' Although the chorus was fairly numer ous and contained one or two pretty girls, It was not conspicuous for singing ability, and the comedians were about the most vacuous quintette of would-be fun-mak ers it would be possible to find. Miss Norma Thornton as Daisy Ragtime made friends with her pleasing voice and at tractive face, but talent was lacking among the other members of the troupe. A feature of the performance was the stick twirling of the Glockers. It was the best exhibition of the kind that has been seen here for some time, and was heartily applauded. “Hoity Toity” seemed to give general satisfaction to the large Saturday' night crowd assembled to see it, although there are far better musical comedies on the road this season. “When Her Soul Speaks.” “When Her Soul Speaks," a new play from the pen of Elmer Grandin, will be seen at the Jefferson theatre tomorrow. "When Her Soul Speaks" comes with the highest of commendations. The Rev. Ernest M. Stires of Virginia, now rector of St. Thomas' church, in New York City, after reading the play, wrote Mr. Gran din. the author, that he considered the play "remarkably strong, strikingly orig inal. and a valuable dramatic production." These words from a representative of our best southern families, and a churchman of prominence, gives us food for thought. "When Her Soul Speaks" will be pre sented by a company, headed by Miss Eva Mountford, a Maryland girl, who has made a reputation as an emotional ac tress. Mr. Elmer Grandin will be seen in the role of a modern and human cler gyman, a character which Is so drawn as to not only uphold the dignity of the church, but command the admiration of all. Special scenery is carried for the play, and the ladles costumes are said to be in the latest vogue and decidedly handsome. “Busy Izzy.” Funny George Sidney and his merry associates, forty-five strong, will bring : the second edition of their happy vehicle, "Busy Izzy.” to the Jefferson theater, Tuesday matinee and night. The coming of this attraction promises a genuine treat to lovers of the better class of musical farce comedy. True, it is but a melange of much nonsense, much music, many songs and many dances, pretty girls and pretty gowns, but it is is this very class of amusement that has the call with theater-goers nowadays, and in "Bussy Izzy" they will find these things well done and handsomely staged. Manager E. D. Stair, who has for years been the director of the Ward & Vokes company, and who still directs the for tunes of that organization, has followed the same lines in "Busy Izzy,” which have so positively won success in the carte of "Percy and Harold." George Sid ney is a comedian of rare magnetism. Unpretentious in his efforts, he has the art of getting directly to the heart of an audience, and then he goes about his work in his own peculiar way and wins. The company surrounding Sidney this year contains many of the favorites of last season. “Taming of the Shrew." "It is so seldom one hears blank verse read properly on the stage nowadays,” remarked James O’Neill, the actor, the other day, “that I am delighted to knovfc that Miss Ada Rehan and Mr. Otis Skin ner are to revive ‘The Taming of the Shrew* and ‘The Merchant of Venice.’ Both Miss Rehan and Mr. Skinner re ceived their training at a time wrhen, and In a school where every player was com pelled to learn this art that is so fast sinking into obllyion, and I feel confident that they will present the Shakespearean drama as it ought to be presented.” Next Wednesday, Miss Rehan and Mr. Skinifer will be seen at the Jefferson the ater in a magnificent revival of ‘‘The Taming of the Shrew'.” The sale of seats for the Rehan-Skin ner performance will be placed on sale tomorrow morning, and the indications point to a large advance sale. Both of the parties have appeared in “The Taming of the Shrews” a number of times, and a finished performance will without doubt be the result. £ A Daly Revival. Augustin Daly made his famous revival of "The Taming of the Shrew" In 1887, but he began his preparations for It many years before that. The furniture used in the second act, for instance, a mag nificent gold suit, from a Neapolitan pal ace, had^heen in his possession for more than two years before the play was pro duced. and it cost the manager a small fortune; first, because it was very valua ble in itself, and, second, because ancient Italian furniture was the hardest of all to get hold of. British, French, German and almost any other characteristic na tional furnishings could be had in plenty merely f<>r the asking. But the real Ital ian article was difficult to find. So, when Mr. Daly sent out word to the various collectors of curios that he wanted these things, he had a long time to wait for them, and a round price to pay when they were finally found. But they were gen uine, and would stand the closest scru tiny. Two of the scenes used In the play were painted a year before the production, and carefully stored until they were needed. Three of the tapestry hangings In one of the Interior scenes cost exactly fifteen hundred dollars, and the fabrics made up Into costumes, cost something like $40 a yard. It is the same gorgeous production that Miss Ada Behan and Mr. Otis Skin ner are using In their revival of the Shakespearean comedy on their tour ' COf>yn|A» icjr M. WEIL & BRO. HARMONY IN CLOTHES. One of the chief attractions of our Hart, Schaff ner & Marx suits is the artistic way in which the colors of fabrics, linings, trimmings, etc., are combined. In addition to giving their clothes style and su perior quality, the makers of these goods evidently give a lot of attention to these harmonious combina tions. You may think the buttons on a suit too small a matter to spend any thought on; but you'll find that even the selection of the right buttons is carefully done in these famous clothes.

The pro duction now belongs to Miss Rehan, to whom it passed Upon the death of her former manager, and she has had it pre served with such care that scarcely an item is missing. Ada Rehan. Miss Ada Rehan, who, with Otis Skin ner as her co-star, is touring the south this autumn in revivals of the Daly pro ductions of “The Taming of the Shrew” and “The Merchant of Venice,” has been seen very little on the stage since the death of her long-time manager, Augustin Daly. She appeared two years ago in a piece called “Sweet Nell of Old Drury,” in which she scored one of her old-time successes. Since then she has been abroad at her bungalow, in Cumberland, England, and it was only the promise of George C. Tyler that she should play again in the pieces in which she had al ready won triumphs under Mr. Daly’s di rection, that persuaded her to return to the stage this season. Miss Rehan was so long associated with Mr. Daly that it would be impossible to imagine a revival of one of his superb Shakespearean pro ductions without her at the head of the cast. William Faversham. William Faversham, who is In his third season as Charles Frohman's star, comes here with his great success, "Impru dence,” and will appear at the Jefferson theater next Thursday. Two months of crowded houses In New York last Beason at the Empire theater. Is a record which Mr. Faversham and his play bring to this city. All reports of the production are strongly In his favor, for not only has the star signally triumphed, but the play and the all-star cast have won splendid recognition. The metro politan verdict was that It was one of the most powerful and popular attractions that ever bid for New York attention. "Imprudence" Is a comedy In three acts, by H. Y. Esmond, author of those recent Amerletfn successes, “When We Were Twenty-one” and “The Wilder ness.” It is generally considered that Mr. Es mond has surpassed his previous play achievements in this work. It Is bright and sparkling, satisfying to the intellect and moves along most Interestingly through a series of delightfully amusing situations. Mr. Faversham's rolo Is that of Jack Frere, a young man who comes close to being an Ideal stage lover. It is regarded as the finest part Mr. Faver shnm has ever played, and it Is said he does the best acting of his career In It. He makes Jack a romantic hero, the ideal lover, and yet thoroughly manly and with nothing of the mawkish sentimental ity about him. “Imprudence” tells a de lightfully charming story. Fire Ends Tour of Miss Percy Haswell. Fire, which destroyed the Auditorium theater In Asheville, N. C., destroyed all the scenic equipment, all the costum ing and all the properties of the Georgs Fawcett company, supporting Miss Per cy Haswell In her big production of "The Favor of the Queen.” This has necessi tated the discontinuance, for a time at least, of this popular starring tour. This production was to have been seen here very early this season, but It will require at least four weeks to restore the production, and It might be possible that the tour will be discontinued entire ly until after the holidays. Up to the time of the fire the business with this company had been excellent, and "The Favor of the Queen,” as a play, and Miss Percy Haswell, as a star, had been re ceived with the utmost praise from both public and press. “The Silver Slipper.” The greatest reigning musical produc tion of New York's past season was un doubtedly John C. Fisher's stupendous production of the English musical com edy. "The Silver Slipper," by the author of "Florodora," which for six consecu tive months filled the famous Broadway theater, (probably the largest In seating capacity of any of" the New York thea ters), and whose long engagement was brought to an end on account of future bookings. "The Silver Slipper" is one of the present season’s greatest novelties. Its namp is not given to Shakespeare's comedy, "Twelfth Night,” because it has any relation to the time action of the play. As a matter of fact, the period covered by the story of the little page,' Viola, is more than three months. Twelfth Night was among the fmmortal bard's contemporaries of a season of frolic de voted to the spinning of Jolly yarns, and it is because “Twelfth Night" is a fan tastic Jumble of mirth with romance that he bestowed upon it the title he gave it. The audience that will see Miss Marie Walnwrlght when she comes here soon are assured of a mirthful evening’s en joyment. One of the unique mechanical effects now to be seen on the stage is shown in the first act of "The Stubbornness of Geraldine,” the Clyde Fitch play, in which Miss Mannering is appearing. This first act setting exhibits the deck of an ocean liner, and it rocks with the long rollers in a most natural fashion. In fact. Miss Mannering’s entrance is a pre cipitate one, induced by a sudden pitch of the boat. A son of the southland, Nat M. Wills, a Virginian, will make his appearance in this city in the clever musical comedy, "A Son of Rest.” His managers. Broad hurst and Currie, have surrounded him with an organization of more than sixty people, and have given to their produc tion the most ^gorgeous embellishments known in stage*'art. Mr. Wills will have in his support, Suzzanne Rocamora, whose work in the Dunne- Harlan com pany will be remembered. Viola Allen would hardly be pleased to have her production of Shakespeare’s delightful comedy, "Twelfth Night,” which will be presented at the Jefferson theater, referred to as being "spectacu lar.” This word has been used so Indis criminately, and more especially In re ferring to the tinsel and sometimes taw dy type of entertainment( that to employ it In this case might be misleading. Yet, when it is considered that for this produc tion there have been provided many splendid scenes, notably the Olivia’s court and Orsino's palace, the word might not be used amiss. It is possible, of course, to be massive and still artistic, and that, according to all accounts, is what has been accomplished in this fine production. The Bijou. Each succeeding week brings this pop ular theater an Increase in attendance, the attractions ottered seeming to be Just wljat are wanted. Every night dur ing the past week the performances were witnessed by large and enthusiastic audi ences. Melodrama seems to have taken the fancy of the theater-going public. The pieces that have been presented are all new to the south, although they have made successes In all the large cities vis ited In the north and east. Next week, one of the strongest companies that has yet visited the Bijou will present “Her Marriage Vow." This play is from the pen of that pop ular author, Owen Davis, and embodies a love story in which the Interest Is heightened by the violent contrast of the Boctal conditions of those concerned. The author has gone to Boston and nearby towns for material In constructing his play. In the first act, he has all his quaint characters around a supper table, a picture of New England life, as found In the district in which the action takes place. The story deals with the life of Kate Walters, whose father Is known as "Bill, Engineer of No. 7." She falls in love with John Carleton, son of the superin tendent, who takes her away from home on a pretense of marrying her, and has performed, what he supposes, a mock | ceremony, through an accomplice. Fol- | lowing events, however, prove that the marriage was a legal one. The villain, discovering this fact, makes every effort to do away with the life of Kate, and even goes so far as to attempt to wreck two trains by turning a switch. He does this, fully aware that Kate and her fath <-t are on one of the trains, and that the success of his plan will probably result in the death of both. How his scheme is frustrated, and the switch turned Just In time to avert a collision, as the two life like trains pass each other at full speed In plain view of the audience. Is said to be one of the strongest spectacular sceneB ever witnessed in modern melodrama. Matinee days at the Bijou are Tues day.

You would not think of drinking stale or poisoned water, would you? You know that if you were to be shut in an air tight compartment death would result. Of all the necessities of life, you can live longer without any of them than air. Impure air and dark ened apartments are me cause an un told number of deaths annually. You know that on a sunless day, with a close atmosphere, you are out of sorts at the best, if you are lucky enough to escape physical ailments, while you are mentally depressed. But once let the sun shine brightly and clear the atmosphere, how different, how much better you feel in every way. Cold weather is coming, and when you aro tempted to close up the house as tight as it can be made, remember these things, and don’t do it, especially at night. Keep the windows in the sleeping apartments open enough to at least give you sufficient fresh air. A cold room does not lndlrate that it is healthy, far from It. A sleeper will soon breathe up all the fresh air In a room, and If there Is not a eonstant, supply of fresh air he simply breathes over and over again the poison thrown off by his lungs. And the breathing of this vitiated air only tends to lower the temperature and vitality of the system, so that it is not as capable of withstanding the rigors of winter. Fresh air is heating to (he body; in fact, upon It depends the combustion of the fuel in the body, and by whch we are kept alive, which we should always hear in mind. Even with open windows during the night, bed chambers and bed clothing should be thoroughly aired every morn ing, and allowed all the sunlight possi ble. During sleep not only do the lungs throw' off more poison than during the day, but it is especially so with the body in Its relaxed condition and when the pores are all open. During sleep the body shouk'. have plenty of cover ing; better to have too much than not enough, both to induce deep slumber and to keep the skin moist and the pores open that they may have the opportunity to rid the system of poi son. Bear in mind that death would follow the closing of the pores. Cause of Failure. FromFrom the Washington Star. Prof. Tjnngley says he modeled his fly ing machine after the pterodactyl.
