The acme of musical comedy excel lence, novelty, and vaudeville Is com bined in the newly constructed, melod ious frivolity, "Around the Clock," by Frank. Huffman, with music and lyrics by L. O. Smith and Sebastian lliller, which the management has well chos en to introduce the premier fun mak ers, the Ritchie London Comedy Com pany, in asiew field of popular enter tainment, at the Gennett theatre next Thursday night. The Ritchie per formers are without question the most talented band of players on the stage today and their fame extends clear .cross both continents. The Ritchie Company was the one real novelty of last season, appearing in the various theatres, in a side-splitting, infectious and adroit travesty called "A Night in a London Music Hall." "Around the Clock" affords them ample scope for their versatile capabilities as singers, dancers, vaudevulians and comedians, which is of a superlative degree. . There is not a dull period in this ad mirable comedy which, as its striking title implies. Is a satirical potporri of Jnirth and melody. Mr. Ritchie has a Jart that fits him like a glove. His v ampersonation of the gildJ youth in 'A Night in a London Musi Hair was as relishing as a walk in the bright sunshine, but in "Around th Clock" Jiis role seems to be more finished and engrossing" than ever. In all of the three acta of "Around the Clock," My. Jiitchie's inimitable performance f-nines. He is always entertaining find his skilled company are seen to betU advantage than ever. The stage nettings and scenic adornment are com plete and of a high, artistic merit. An Idea of the magnitude of the produc tion may. be gleaned from the fact that in the final act a realistic scene of a music hall in full operation is shown. Here the Ritchie players gather, dis port, cavort and make merry. They Introduce specialties that are mirth provoking In the e 3me. The come dy is unctuou9, the action spirited and I ha stage "business" of that brand that only finds comparison in enter tainments less diverting. "Around the Clock" and the Ritchie Comedy Com pany are In for a popular endorse ment if present indications count for anything. Vaudeville at the Phillips. Tonight will witness the introduc tion. o a bill at the New Phillips in Vaudeville that it is believed will prove as good a he many splendid ones that Manager Murray has provided in Tecent weeks. There will be a wide variety In the entertainment as. the program calls for a piano overture, prima donna soprano work, " mono logue, juggling and feats in equilibri um, an illustrated song, a musical com edy in on act an the latest motion pictures. Every lover of vaudeville can hardly fail to find something in this assortment to suit him. In the list of performers are Inez McCuckar, Tom Mack, the Aveletts and the Four Franks, all well known: In vaudeville circles. There will be a souvenir niat- Ineeon Wednesday and the usual order' of performances throughout the re- snainder of the week. Maude Fealy Gennett. One of the most notable engagements of the season at the Gennett on next Saturday night, concerns the appear-jit nnce of Maude Fealy the youngest dra - matic star on the American stage, in Scene from "The Illusion of Beatrice," with Maude Fealy inthe the title role of a new modern comedy in three acts, "The Illusion of Beat rice," by Martha Morton. Miss Fealey, who will doubtless be remembered by theater goers as the leading woman with the late Sir Hen ry Irving, Win. Gilette, Wm. Collier and E. S. Willard, develops as a star by reason of the - invaluable experi ence and association with some of the world's greatest players. The play in which she will be seen is clean and wholesome throughout, pro viding a role admirably suited to her ability and with sufficient romance, comedy and character types to provide an admirable entertainment. Papa's Boy" Gennett. "Papa's Boy," the musical offering at the Gennett tomorrow night, comes here well recommended, and is said to be entirely different from anything on similar lines, for besides being orig inal in conception, it is replete with new and up-to-date ideas, intelligently carried out by superior artists. The situations are funny and full of intense interest, the dialogue is sparkling and vigorous, and the entire production fills its mission to the letter which, by the way, is to create fun, laughter and merriment. "Red Feather" Gennett. Important among the attractions that Manager Swisher announces for the present month at the Gennett the ater is DeKoven, Klein and Cook's romantic comic opera, "Red Feather." which in the past two seasons has won tremendous vogue among the theater patrons of this country. It comes to the Gennett Friday night with music written by Reginald DeKoven in his most ambitious style, in fact rivaling; in every particular the famous score of "Robin Hood;" with a libretto sup plied by Charles Klein, the foremost dramatist of the day, whose "Music Master" is now in the third year of its New York run and whose "The Lion and the Mouse" gives promise of round ing out yet another season at a Broadway playhouse; with lyrics fur nished by Charles Emerson Cook whose theatrical career has been guid ed by the master hand of David Belas co; and having a production' which cost the Ziegfield Opera company $72. 0V and has yet to be equalled in art istic excellence. "Red Feather" has everything to commend it to the atten tion of all who find enjoyment in the higher class of musical offerings. Lightning Flashes. Lightning flashes in a storm are found by an English observer to be much less irregular in period than they appear. Such storms have usually two foci, sometimes three, from which the flashes radiate, and the dischargee from each come at regular intervals. The apparent irregularity is due to the varying rates of the different centers. In one storm noticed the two foci were about a mile and a half apart, and in an hour the northern center emitted thirty flashes at intervals of fifteen, thirty, forty-five, sixty and ninety sec onds, anJ the southern center gave sixteen flashes at intervals of seven teen, thirty-four and fifty -one seconds Another unexplained observation is that just before each great flash there is a momentary faint lighting up of the sky in the stormy region. Do Not Crowd the Season. The first warm days of spring bring with them a desire to get out and en joy the exhilarating air and sunshine. Children that have been housed up all winter are brought out and you wonder where they all came from. The heavy winter clothing is thrown aside and many shed their flannels. Then a cold wave comes and people say that grip is epidemic. Colds at this season aro even more dancprniis th:in In m?ri- ,ntAr th ia TTinh ,,ni1(v0r of pneumonia.

SUNDAY CLOSING LAW W1L BEG1VEN TEST Barbers at Indianapolis Are Planning Its Overthrow. IS INTEREST IN RICHMOND. Richmond barbers will be interested in knowing that the Indianapolis members of the Journeymen Barbers International union are biding their time until the bill, in regard to the closing of barber shops on Sundays be comes a law, probably about the mid dle of April, as there was no emergen cy clause in the bill. Some of the larger of the downtown barber shops are also biding their time, it seems, for it is related that several of the large bosses have entered into an agreement to pool their interests and, bearing an equal share of the expense, test the constitutionality of the law. The union barbers of Indianapolis believe that the question of the consti tutionality of the Ohio law. which is along lines similar to the pending law in Indiana will be settled before the bill becomes a law in this state. The constitutionality of the Ohio law is being tested as the result of a wholesale raid that was made in Cin cinnati some time ago. in which a num ber of very prominent persons were ap prehended along with the barbers. while they were in the act of receiving tonsorial treatment one Sunday. The journeymen barbers of Indianapolis have fought long and hard to compel the barber-shops to close Sundays, and they are confident that when the bill becomes a law their long fight will not have been in vain. leading-roleatthe Gennet t AROUND THE CLOCK."
