D. G. Holliday, a Farmer, Murdered Last
Friday—Body Found Tuesday.
Sulllgent, Oct. 30.—(Special.)—D. G.
Holliday, a farmer who lived three miles
from here, was murdered near Quincy,
Miss., last Friday by some unknown par
ty. He had gone over there to move a
man by the name of Perkins and was
accompanied by one Ell Mosely. Mosely
returned home without him, and sent
Holliday’s wife word that the last he saw
of her husband he was with three tramps.
Holliday's body was found yesterday
with a bullet hole in his head and was
burled near where It was found. Suspi
cion points strongly towards Mosely as
being the murderer and officers have been
gent to arrest him.
Cod-liver oil suggests
consumption, which is al
most unfortunate,
k Its best use is before you
fear consumption; when
you begin to get thin, weak,
run down ; then is the pru
dent time to begin to take
care, and the best way to
take care is to supply the
system with needed fat and
strength. Scott’s Emulsion
of cod-liver oil, witli hypo
phosphites, will bring back
plumpness to those who
nave lost it, and make
fetrength where raw cod
liver oil would be a burden.

the law makes It unlawful for an employ

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.
The friends and acquaintances of Mr.
and Mrs. Peter Zlnszer are respectfully
