Around the Clock Gennett.
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
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
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
"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 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

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.

There are many people who can see
nothing good in a doughnut except the
hole. For them there is nothing in
this world but calamity. Their great
est trouble is to have to eat three
times a day. The stomach is In re
bellion, and this is immediately shown
in a man's face. A man to be success
ful must have sunshine inside. The
world already has too many dyspepsia
faces that breathe disaster and gloom.
Stomach trouble is the most com
mon cause of discontent, sour face,
recklessness, disgust and lack of am
bition. A bad stomach there Is the
secret of many a failure. Anyone can
have a good stomach, a strong stom
ach, a stomach that can take care of
anything and everything that is put
into it, no matter whether It is a very
bad stomach or not.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets do this
very thing. One ingredient of these
little tablets digests 3,000 grains of
food, and no matter how bad your
dyspepsia or indigestion, they will di
gest everything in your stomach,
thoroughly and completely, and better
and more quickly than a good strong
healthy stomach can do it. Stuart's
Dysrepsia Tablets will quickly cure
loss of appetite, brash, irritation, burn
ing sensations, nausea, heartburn,
eructations, loss of vim and energy,
bad memory, and dyspepsia and indi
gestion in their very worst forms.
No other little tablets in the world
can do so much. You should carry
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets around
with you wherever you go an dtake
them after meals. Then only will you
realize what it is to enjoy a meal, and
what perfect digestion means. Your
whole body and your mind will feel
the effects; your vim will increase,
you will be more satisfied with what
the world does, you will think happi
er and be happier and your face will
be one of supreme contentment. That j
will bring you success and then more
success. Your face will bring you dol-,
lars. Try it. It will cost you just ZOc.
