This construction of the law makes It unlawful for an employ er to require employes to sustain a phy sician known as the company’s doctor, •'or live In tenement houses owned by an employer," and virtually kills the sys tem of "docking," which has been an oc topus to the Tennessee workingmen even greater than the garnishment system in vogue In some southern states.

Torpid Liver, Constipation, etc., always use bimn.ona Liver Regulator and have never been disappointed in the effect produced. It seems to be a perfect cure for all diseases of the Stomach and Bowels.”— W. J. McElroy, Macon, Oa. -r~- -1-— RICHARD III, One of Shakespeare’s Great Tragedies, Pro duced at O’Brien's to a Good House Last Night. Notwithstanding the rain last night O'Brien’s opera house was well filled with an intelligent and appreciative audience on the occasion of Thomas Keene’s an nual appearance in this city, presenting "Klchurd III." The audience was as en thusiastic as it was large. Mr. Keene was received with shouts and cheers and he and his associates were repeatedly called before the curtain. Mr. Keene’s production of "Richard III'’ is scholarly in itB intent and admi rably carried out in all the material de tails which make up a magnificent and elaborate pictorial rendering. Mr. Keene’s "Richard" has for the past fifteen years or more been the standard representation of the stage. Whatever other conceptions of this character have been offered they have Invariably been compared and measured by the gauge of Mr. Keene. Just so far have they called forth critical resentment. No tribute could be higher. To say that Mr. Keene is great does not over-lapse the truth, and last night he was at his best. He has lost none of his (fire, nor his art; his voice has not lost its mellowness nor its strength; he has the same peculiar limp, which nobody In the world can Imitate; he has the same mis shapen makeup, and begins the cynical description of himself with such earnest ness as to borrow pity for him and all his wickedness. He gave an artistic rep resentation of "Richard III,” and ope that those present last night will not forget for many a day. The supporting element of the com pany is fairly put into evidence In this play and there was not a weak point in It. Mr. Ilennlg as Richmond, Mr. Eagle son as King Henry, Mr. Lowell as Buck ingham, Mr. Ahrendt as Lord Henry, Mr. Melton as Catesby and the Misses Gallatin, Timberman, Baker and Regan, and dear old Mrs. Baker! all showed up to the best possible advantage. "Tonight Mr. Keene will be seen as "Hamlet." a character In which he ex cels. Mr. Keene hap never been seen In “Hamlet" in this city. I “A Hide for Life.” At O’Brien's opera house an event of Interest to the patrons of Manager Thless will be the engagement for Friday and Saturday of Eugene Robinson’s comedy drama, “A Ride for Life." The play is thoroughly American and was written by Mr. Walter Fessler, who Is also the Inventor of the mechanical effects. Some of the features announced for It by the managers, Messrs. Robinson and Fessler, indicate the daring and energy of the men who conduct the affairs of our stage, as the amount of money Invested In a production of this kind is something enor mous. The effects In this play are a great deal In advance of whatever has yet been attempted ip scenes of a sim ilar nature. One great effect Is a loco motive running at full speed, the Illu sion being increased by various devices. The locomotive Is one of the real kind and not a toy, or a thing of carpenter w'ork; it could serve the purpose on a regular track; steam is generated in Its boiler, heated from the fire box or fur nace on the engine, arid the swift revolu tion of its wheels proceeds from Its own motive power. The preliminary cost of the production has been $2.1,000, and a material part of it was for the engine. The locomotive scene in "A Ride for Life” as given this season Is said to be the greatest mechanical effect ever placed on the stage. The scenes laid in Mexico are beautiful and realistic, and for the moment it carries the beholder to that beautiful country, where rail roading is engineering. FUNERAL NOTICE.
