Originally the capstone was stationed
on the ground, but gradually the -soil sur
rounding it was carried away, a narrow
vertical section just under it being left in
tact, owing probably to some hard ce
menting substance in the conglomerate
and possibly also to the 'direction In
which the eroding torrents expended their
force. How long a time was required to
form the shaft may be only partly real

This strange freak of nature is called |
"Sheep-Eater's monument." and is said to j
have derived its name from a tribe of In

The monument is seventy feet high and i
consists of a rough shaft, composed of •
bowlders and gravel, tapering slightly up

rock, whose weight is estimated at not j
less than fifty tons, cap rests on
slender projections from the shaft that
are gradually being worn away by the
elements, threatening the eventual fall of,
the great stone. The monument stands •
on the slope of a ridge which rises 1000 :

It was undoubtedly formed by erosion, j
The surface of the declivity has been for j
centuries, and is yet, being washed away

The. first production In this city of the
scenic melodrama, "Devils Island," drew
a crowded house to the Central last night.
The play Is founded on the main incidents
of the famous Dreyfus case. The author,
however, has availed himself of the usual
dramatic license and instead of De )a
Tour (Dreyfus) being a 'victim of his
brother officers his downfall is brought
about by Russian secret agents. Captain
Maurice de la Tour (in reality Dreyfus)
is wedded to Pauline, a n:ece of General
Regand. chief of the JVar Department In
Paris. Prince "Boris Orion", a wealthy
Russian holding a commission in the
French navy, is a rejected suitor of Pau
line and consequently a bitter enemy of
her husband. With the aid of the Coun
tess Nina Petrovsky, a beautiful Russian
spy, who loves De la Tour in vain, he
contrives to make It appear thai he has
betrayed important military secrets of
France to Germany. De la Tour is, tried
by court-martial, degraded from his rank
and condemned to perpetual imprisqn
ment in the. most loathsome and un
healthy colony of the French' Government,
Devils Island. When the Countess , Nina
realizes the enormity of her crime she
becomes a victim of remorse and- endeav
ors to make amends. An admirer of hers,
a young officer, has been appointed gov
ernor of Devils Island. She drugs him,"
obtains possession of his • uniform and

Fischer's Theater looked like a hothouse
at intervals last night during the per
formance of "Fiddle Dee Dee," flowers
were so plentiful. The revival of this
popular and mirth-provoking extrava
ganza met with the warmest kind of a
welcome. The house was packed from
pit to dome and every one of the old
time favorites and the new attractions
were applauded to the echo. As usual,
Kolb, Dill and Bernard were the recipi
ents of an ovation. Every one of -their
appearances was the signal for uproar
ious applause and all their new work
was recognized and greeted heartily. At
the end of the second act. after the trio
with Flossie Hope and Gertie Emerson
had performed their whirlwind daji'ce ana
song, a procession of flowers, which
reached from the boards nearly to the
entrance of the theater, began to ascend
the stage. One piece was a large banjo
of white and^red carnations, with the
word "Dill" worked across the center.

leases him and the two take to sea In a
submarine boat just in time to escape
the explosion of a mine which has been
fired by Orloff. They are picked up by
an American yacht and taken to Paris,
when De la Tour's innocence is made ap
parent and Orloff is ; punished for his
treachery. The production is a splendid
one, all the scenery and effects being
new and very beautiful. Particular men
tion should be made of the illuminated
garden of General Regand on the banks
of the Seine and of Devils Island. The
rescue of De la Tour and Nina is the
most thrilling incident of the drama and
was rewarded with many curtain calls.

Mary Manncring's engagement in "The
Stubbornness of Ger.'ldln<.\" the new com
edy written especially for her by Clyde
Finn, will l»-gin at the Columbia next
Monday. The success attained in other
cities by this favorite star in Mr. Fitch's
pretty and wholesome play has been com
plete* and there is every Indication that
it will be duplicated in San Francisco.
The beauty and talent of Miss Mannerir.g
are said never to have been seen to better
advantage than in the role of the high
spirited, gentle-hearted, typical American
girl, which the author has fitted to her
personality and powers of humorous and
emotional portrayal. She is said to be
m^rrounded by a company exceptionally
well fitted for the realization of clear-cut
characters of present-day social life
drawn by the playwright.
William H. Crane commenced his .sec
ond and last week's engagement at the
Columbia Theater last night in the com
edy "David Harum." The house was
ciowded. The star in the title role, with
his quaint wisdom and sound horse sens-e,
i:> inimitable and keeps the audience in
excellent humor.
Columbia.
THE hypnotic Mr. Corrigan Is
asain at the Grand Opera-house,
and last night showed himselt
quite at his best in the dual name
role of "Dr. Jekyll and Mr.
Hyde." The seeker after "creeps" should
not miss Emmett Corrisan's performance,
the actor realizing Stevenson's strange
creation with weird effectiveness. Pos
sibly he is more convincing in the grim
malignity of the incarnate evil. Mr. Hyde,
than in the embodied nobility of Dr.
Jekyll. and is here indeed a grotesquely
horrible figure. .The changes from ths
cakiumed Dr. Jekyll to the green-lit
Hyde are managed very ingeniously by
the actor, and Ms efforts were productive
of wild applause from an admiring gal
lery down. Mr. Corrigan again shows
himself here a distinctly accomplisheo
actor, and those interested in the weird
and wonderful, interested in a modern,
melodramatic, morality play, will do well
to see him here.
The Grand Op^ra -house company affords
the current star useful support. Herschel
Ma-all, in spectacles and general so
briety, manages the paternal "my child
of the lawyer Utterson quite convincingly
as well as the lawyer's other duties. Mr.
I'.utk-r, as usual, is sincere and useful In
the small part of Rev. Edward Leigh, and
Charles Stewart deserves better than the
un-Sher!ock Holmes-y role of the police
inspector. Miss Stoddard is the Alice
Leigh and fills in acceptably.
The house was good and the reception
of the play amply evidenced that it has
not yet staled upon its audiences.
Next week Walter E. Perkins,
comedian, will begin a starring engage
ment of three weeks at this theater in a
dramatization of Mary H. Wilklns' story,
"Jerome."

A prominent Southern lady, Mrs.
Blanchard, of Nashville, Tenn., tells how
she was cured of backache, dizziness, pain-
ful and irregular periods by the use of
Lydia E* Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
" Dear Mrs. Pixkham: — Gratitude compels me to acknowledge the
great merit of your Vegetable Compound. I have suffered for four years
with irregular and painful menstruation, also dizziness, pains in the back
and lower limbs, and fitful sleep. I dreaded the time to come "which
would only mean suffering to me.
" Bbtter health is all I wanted, and cure if possible. Lydia E. Pink-
ham's Vegetable Compound brought me health and happiness in a
few short months. I feel like another person now. 3Iy aches and pains
have left me. life seems new and sweet to me, and everything seems
pleasant and easy.
" Six bottlesbrought me health, and was worth more than months
under the doctor's care, which really did not benefit me at all. I am sat-
isfied there is no medicine so good for sick women as your Vegetable
Compound, and I advocate it to my lady friends in need of medical
help." — Mrs. B. A, Blanchard, 422 Broad St., Nashville, Tenn.
