This is the play that the Chicago Daily News calls "the most beautiful play of all ages," and which the New York Evening Post declares is "the best example of dramatic art extant. It has leceived the most enthusiastic prahe from every critic who has seen denly -rtencu:iced as a criminal and forger.' his extreme ' forbearance and silence presents a climax of sustained interest, after which, justice appears, as a rainbow, and In an intense mo ment of Forrow he is crowned with a tappy lor. r.

The circumstances of his death are briefly as follows: Upon arriving at Jeremie, at the head of a government detachment sent out against the revolutionists he found the government gunboat Croyant ashore. He at once accused the com mander, Captain Ostema, of treason, and, refusing to listen to any explana tions, he forthwith had him executed. After this act Leconte landed at Jere mie for the purpose of recruiting men to fightagalnst the rebels under Gen eral Simon, leader of the government against President Nord Alexis. Some of the people of Jeremie protested against this course, whereupon Le conte selected two of the most promt-1 nent citizens and had them executed. Theseoutrages wrought the people tip to a great degree of excitement and Indignation. They armed themselves hastily and advanced against Leconte and his troops. There was practically no resistance. Leconte was . taken prisoner, and in his turn executed by a fusillade upon the same wharf where lie had caused the killing of Ostein a find the other two men.

Only the heroism of Engineer Julius Severson of La Cros6e. saved thelives of 150 passengers in a passenger and freight wreck at Portage Junction, III., ac cording to a written testimonial sign ed by all the passengers and submit ted to Superintendent Cunningham of the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy railroad on the arrival of the train here. As train No. 47, running 60 miles an hour, drew near Portage Junction a freight was noticed just ahead. The fireman, Edward Cater, jumped, and was killed, but the engineer, at the risk of his Jife, applied the eemrgency brakes and reduced the speed of the train, before the freight was struck. A half dozen boxes were smashed and piled onto the passenger engine, bu1 when the engineer was dug out of the debris he was uninjured. No passen gers were hurt, though they were thrown to the floor from their berths by the shock.

It is 'a modern comedy in the best sense of the word, but at times verges on tragedy. Al though hailed as a wonderful work of art by scholars, it tells a human in terest story that appeals to every au dience. Clergymen in New York, Chi cago and San Francisco have made It the tbeme of sermons in which they have advised their congregations to see the play, yet men and women who seldom attend church services have been fascinated by the human interest ntory in which the central character is readily recognized as the reincarna tion of Christ. The author, Charles Rami Kennedy, has written a powerful drama that combines comedy, tragedy, pathos, s-atlre, declamation and tab leau. It has created a sensation in the West as well as the East and has attracted capacity houses even dur ing the hottest days of the past summer. "The First Violin." The title role of "The First Violin." that of Eugene Courvoirsier, may be sand to be one of the finest roles ever portrayco" in a drama.

The coming therefore to the Gennett theatre of Hoyt's funniest of all mixtures of humor, frolic and melody, can only be regarded in the light which concerns the bettermeyt of human nature, as there is naugilt to compare with a good hearty laugjh in the world of plentiful woe. This season's blend of captivating features puts "A Bunch of Keys" to a still more favorable advantage as an entertainment of the choicest qualities, from every point reckoned, and the employment of 60 many ex ceptionally clever artists, in all the departments of Jullity and song, fur thermore enhances Its value among the acceptable forms of stage diver- tisement. Gennett theatre, Nov. 30. The fame of the Richmond Fall Fes tival has been written of in almost ev ery news pupllcation in the United States in some way or other. It also has been prominent in a number of magazines, especially tnose devoted to theadvertlsements of manufacturers. There is one magazine that could not be said to be devoted to either of tftese interests that reflects credit to the undertaking in its current Issue. The Show World," printed for the welfare of theatrical folks and theat rical interests contains a picture of the Henley roller skate that was ex hibited in the festival parade. This is the largest roller skate in the world. The entire float is shown and a de scription of the skate given. This skate was designed and made by Earl E. Henley, son of M. C. Henley, the manufacturer- ' - Of the parade The Show World says "The industrial parade in which the Henley float was a conspicuous figure, was neof he greatest ever known In the middle west, it taking several hours to pass a given point."

Since its last engagement here, Manager Ben- ner has strengthened the personnel. added new plays, made improve ments wherever they could be made until now the stock company is one of the best on the road. Among the new people are Miss Dorothy Smith, late leading lady of the Murray Com edy company, who as an actress ranks among the very highest with popular priced attractions and Harry Water- house, an Eastern actor of much abil ity and excellence. The company will play a matinee each day. The open bill Tuesday afternoon will be the sensational comedy drama, "Slaves of the Orient" V DAY'S ATTRACTIONS WELL PATRONIZED Shows, Skating Rink and Foot Ball Game Benefit. The city was well supplied with hol iday amusements today. Probably the greatest Interest centered in the attraction offered at the Gennett The ater. This afternoon "The Servant in the House," was played to a large au dience. Indications are for a larger attendance this evening. This play is psychological and one that has made an immense impression upo nth pub lic wherever it has been. . presented. There were large crowds at the skat ing rink both this morning and after noon. The climax is expected to come this evening. The vaudeville at the New Phillips was presented to large sized audiences. The bill offered this week is above the average and well worth seeing. The football game was well patronized. INSANE ARE WELL ENTERTAINED Annual -Festivities at East' haven Successful.

Indiar Tradition That Tells the Origin of the Custom. According to the Indian tradition. scalping arose in this wise: Hundreds, perhaps thousands, of years ago, when all the Indians in the world were of one tribe and under one chief, there arose a dispute in the tribe as to who should succeed the old chief. who had Just died without issue. There were two principal aspirants to the honor, each having a considerable fol lowing. The dispute finally ended with strife and war, and for the first time in the history was "brothers' blood shed by brothers." The chief of one of the factions had a beautiful daughter, and one of the bravest warriors was a suitor for her hand. Her father consented to the match on one condition that the young brave should Journey to the camp of the enemy, many miles away through the deep snow, kill the chief. his rival, and return with some nnmis takable token of his death. In spite of the snow and the distance, the young man immediately set out on his Journey and. after lying in ambush for several days, finally entered the camp, boldly attacked the chief in his tent, slew him and cut off his head. Next morning the murder was dls covered, and the tribe set off in hot pursuit. Little by little they gained upon the fleeing warrior, who in his anxiety to elude his pursuers cast away all his Impediments, to his very clothing, retaining only his stone knife and the trophy which was to win him his bride. His pursuers gained rapidly until finally so near did they come he could hear them on his trail. His grewsome burden grew heavier and heavier, and as a last resort he whipped out his knife, stripped the scalp from the head of the dead man and, thus lightened of his load, reached his own camp In safety, presented to his chief the token of his prowess and was wed, amid great rejoicing, to the damsel of his choice. From thenceforth he was permitted to wear an eagle's feather in his cap. and to this day the eagle's feather re mains the sign of the successful war rior, the number he displays depending upon the number of scalps he has tak en.

In many places there are reports out that the travel so far during the month of November has been consid erably less than for the same month of last year. This is not the case In Richmond. The sale of tickets has greatly increased and according to the statements made yesterday by local officials the sales will be much larger than in former years. The number of persons leaving the city today are fewer than the number leaving last year. There were a large number of persons arrived in the city today. Although there are now no cases of plague in Pacific coast ports, there is no relaxation of the precautions against the disease. The secretary of the Washington Board of Health re cently asked the mayor of Seattle to order that "all vessels shall breast off from the dock at least six feet by means of a float or by spars, and that on all lines or spars passing from the vesel to the dock metal rat guards, at least two feet in diameter, shall be placed In such a manner that they will tightly encircle the lines of spars, and that the face of such rat guards shall be at right angles to the length of the lines or spars, and that all gang planks shal be raised or guarded when not in actual use for pasengers or freight." Under the new Korean forest laws the forests will be classified in four kinds, according to the status of their owners. These four classes are Im perial, state, public and private for ests. The minister of agriculture, commerce and industry may work out order the preservation of such forests as may be necessary for the preven tion of landslides, floods and droughts. The minister can also prohibit the cuttingof forests, the destruction of which would impair the scenic fea tures of places of public resort or places noted for scenic attractiveness. In New Eengland, some years ago, one often heard people speak of a place, an entertainment or of business as "dead as Chelsea." making the comparison because of the extreme Quietness of the city which has just been swept by fire. This proverbial reflection on the city, some of its in habitants said, had a bad effect on real estate values, and a,, change of name on that account for a long time under serious consideration. The place, however outgrew the "dead" era before steps in that direction were taken. The most curios railway in the world is built on ice. It Is laid be tween Cronstadt and Oranienbaum, and Is In use only during the winter. Its success has suggested the con strustlon of a similar winter railway betwee the two important commercial centers, Krementchug and Ek atari n- oslav, which are united in summer by the steamboat traffic along the Dnie per river. This meas of communica tion is closed in winter by the ice. A costly, rouadabout journey has to be made between the two towns, though they do not lie far apart. $3.00 PORTFOLIO OF ART WITH ONE YEAR'S DfTODlT A TI-fYiVT SUBSCRIPTION TO JLxllivLi 1 IV-IlN READ THIS GREAT OFFER This splendid PORTFOLIO OF ART contains fifty superb pictures which would readily sell for from ten to twenty-five cents each in any art store.
