There is no lack of comedy interest In "Molly Bawn," the new play by Marie Doran, which the Cutter Stock company offers at the Gennett thea ter tonight. The dramatisation of "The Duchess" famous love story has been deftly handled by this young and aspiring play builder and while the original story has been preserved, there . have been introduced comedy situations that are said to be highly mirth provoking and yet absolutely consistent with the Dlot. Laughter chases away the tear ere it has yet left the eye and while essentially a play of sentiment the author has re cognized that the purpose of the stage is to entertain as well as educate and elevate, and hence the many delight ful comedy situations with which the play abounds. "The Duchess" novel has been so widely circulated and read that it would seem that a fol lowing for the play had already been created, but even those who have not read this fascinating tale of Irish life and love, will be sure- to find an ab sorbing interest in the story as it is told in the four acts of the play. The locale of the play is laid at the beautiful lakes of Killarney in Ireland and the English manor home of the heroine's maternal grandfather and af fords splendid opportunity for the most gorgeous scenic effects, a fact that has been amply taken advantage of by Manager Cutter, who it is said, has provided a scenic equipment of surpassing beauty. The company is one of a high standard of excellence and the production in its entirety is to be one of the season's best offer ings. This is amatuer cisht at the Gen nett ' Attend First M.

An Irish officer who bad served la Malta was one day at a public dinner. Expatiating on the luxurious living at Malta, he spoke particularly of the ex cellent quality of the anchovies. He bad never seen any like them any where else. He told of a grove of! them which be had seen growing In1 the governor's garden upon the es planade. ' A gentleman present disputed the statement that anchovies grew on trees. The Irishman reaffirmed It most emphatically. The wine was flowing and the lie passed. A chal lenge was given and accepted. On the following day the parties met, attended by their seconds. At the first fire the Irishman's shot took effect in bis opponent's thigh, the ball hitting the bone and causing such a shock that the latter fell upon bis back and in such pain that be kicked his heels vigorously. "I faith, major." said our hero's second, "you've hit your man. but I think not dangerously, for see what lively capers he Is cutting." 'Capers! Capersr exclaimed the Irishman, with a start. "Ob. by the powers, what have I done? Bad luck to me forever for such a dreadful mis take'." And, hastening to the side of his antagonist, who had been raised to a sitting posture, he grasped his hand-, gushing forth as be did so: "My dear friend, I hope you're not killed. And if I've harmed you seriously I'll ask your pardon forever, for I made a muraernr mistake: it was capers that I saw growing. upon that tree at Malta and not anchovies at allf Why. Indeed? Pat and Mike enlisted in the British army. After their first drill the cap tain, thinking the circumstances oppor tune for a little lecture on patriotism. demanded eloquently, "Soldiers, why should a man die for his king and country?" This struck Pat as a proper question, Turning to Mike, he said: "Faith, Moikc, the captain Is rolght! Whoi?" A Soft Answer. During one of the national political conventions an orchestra was playing in a popular restaurant The place was crowded with delegates, and the diners were talking loudly so they might bear and be heard. At one ta ble sat a beautiful woman and ber es cort and at the next table a number of New York men. Suddenly the orchestra stopped blng! and a Xew York man's voice rang out: "By George, that's a good looking woman! I'd like to meet her." The man at the next table, who was with the lady, came over, tapped the New Yorker on the shoulder and said frigidly, "Sir, that lady is nsr wlfer "Shaker' said the Xew York man. Tm glad to meet you. You certainly are a good picker." And hostilities were averted. Happiness. ' If thou workest at that which is be fore thee, following right reason seri ously, vigorously, calmly, without al lowing anything else to distract thee, but keeping tby divine part pure if thou should be bound to give it back immediately if tbou boldest to this expecting nothing, fearing nothing, but satisfied with thy present activity nc cording to nature and with heroic truth in every word and sound which thou utterest, thou wilt live happy. And there is no man who is able to prevent this. Marcus Aurelius. Turn About.

"Good gracious, sir!" exclaimed the cook. "You oughtn't to place too much Importance on what the young men tell you about my meals. "Why, sir, they come to me in just the same way and complain about your lectures!" Took It Seriously. A little girl once visited the famous brothers Grimm, the fairy tale writers. The little girl knocked at the modest Grimm door, and William Grimm open ed it. "Are you," she said, "the person who wrote these pretty tales?" And she showed him under her arm a copy of bis immortal book. "Yes," he answered, smiling; "I and my brother. "We wrote them together.' "And you write this story about the clever little tailor who married the princess?" "Yes oh, yes!" said William Grimm. "Well," said the little girl. "It says at the end f the story that whoever doesn't believe It must pay you mark. Now, I don't believe that princess ever, ever married tailor. haven't as much as a mark, but here Is a penny, and I will pay you the rest as soon as I can. On of Them. "There will be a meeting of the hoard," said the preacher, "at the con elusion of this service " So the official brethren of the church gathered around the pastor after the benedic tlon was pronounced.

Thought It Was a Bird. There was a bailie in Glasgow some years ago whose knowledge of natural history was limited. One day when en the bench the following case came be fore him : ' A man who had a squirrel, on going to the country for a short time, left the squirrel in charge of a neighbor. The neighbor when attending to the animal accidentally left the door of Its cage open, and without being seen It made its escape. On his return the owner of the squirrel was very angry at the man for his carelessness and brought an action against him, demanding com pensation for the loss of his pet The bailie heard both parties and then gave the following ta hie decision: "Nae doot ye did wrang to open the cage door, but," turning to the pur suer, "ye was wrang. tae, for yo should hae clippit the beast s wings.'
