Thomas Keene, who will be seen at the opera house tonight In Shakespeare’s his toric drama of "Richard III," is the greatest actor on the American stage In this and similar plays. Mr. Keene has given to the character much original studjr, and so perfectly has he repro duced the bloody villain that Shakespeare pictures in Richard that he has been long accepted as the greatest of stage Rich ards, the one whom succeeding genera tions of actors must follow after.’ To see so great an actor in so great a part will be an unusual privilege, and Mr. Keene should be greeted with a magnificent audience. That his coming will (be made a great social event has already been as sured by (he character of the advance inquiries for seats. A splendid company of twenty-three people will assist the tragedian in the work of placing the play before the people, and in the cast are such well-known names as Frank Hen nig, Alberta Gallatin, Mary Tlmberman, Thomas Eagleson and many of similar prominence. In costuming and scenic effects and accessories the production will be one of the finest of the entire the atrical season. Tomorrow night Mr. Keene will play “Hamlet," Shakespeare's masterpiece. “A Ride for Life.” Manager Eugene Robinson has been be fore the public for a long time as the pro ducer of plays in which the general In terest of the dramatic action is supple mented by extraordinary effects. Mr. Robinson produces a sensation by Invad ing the stage with a real engine in “A Ride for Life.” which will be presented at O'Brien's Friday and Saturday. "A Ride for Life" has scored a well merited suc cess wherever produced. More than usual Interest attaches itself to this pro duction on the part of admirers of the realistic by the promise of a real loco motive. This promise is fulfilled. This drama needs no mechanical adjunct to make it successful. The situations in "A Ride for Life” are ingenious; the plot develops itself naturally and skillfully and the various climaxes are led up to In a thoroughly consistent fashion The drama has been constructed in a health ful and vigorous manner, and there is a vein of tenderness and pathos running through it which appeals to human sen timent. The cast is a very strong one, headed by such well-known people as Mr. At kins Lawrence and Miss Bessie Taylor. The comedy element is in the hands of Miss Carrie Exiltr and Mr. Frunk G. Mack, and their singing and dancing are a bright feature. Nothing Is wanting to make this production notable and sat isfactory. THE PAULIST MISSION Increases in Interest—Last Night's Services, “Instruction on the Sacrament." The interest in the mission continues unabated. The services last evening consisted of Instruction on the sacramen*. given by Father Smith. The discourse was lucid and logical, showing clearly from different scriptural quotations that the grace and morals of Christ are ap ENTS. tic Novelties and iimtioii ot our* sto BRIC-A-BRAC plied to Individual souls. This was fol lowed by an impressive sermon by Rev. Father Younan on the subject of death and its lessons. The text used was the appropriate selection, ‘‘Rerrjember thy last end and thou shalt never sin.” Ec clesiastes vll, 40. The reverend speaker’s object was to show that life, Its activities and opportunities ought to be made prof itable for moral ends, and profitable for eternal reward. In view of its certainty and the dread separation it entails we should estimate at their true value the things of time. In view of its uncer tainty we should all be prepared to give an account of our stewardship, and this can only be done by leading a good life; by avoiding sin, by being found faithful, with our loins girt and our lamjis burning In our hands when the Waster comes to summon us home. The present services will continue for several days at 5, 6 and 8 o’clock a. m. Contrary to expectation and desires the mission will not last two weeks, as the fathers ihave pressing -engagements which demand their presence in other fields. Young gentlemen having ambition to play orchestral or band instruments of any kind should consult Professor Weber at the Birmingham College of Music.
