THE RICHMOND PALLADIUM AD SUN-TELEGHAM, SUNDAY, OCTOBER 3, 1909.
PAGE- THREE OPENING OF THE THEATER DELAYED Murray Vaudeville House Will Not Start the Season This Week. IS NOT QUITE FINISHED MANAGER OMER G. MURRAY WILL FORMALLY OPEN THEATER, ON MONDAY. OCT. 11 TO BOOK THE BE8T ATTRACTIONS. A BABY IS WANTED Pilgrim Brothers Want One to Place in New Baby Incubator. TO BE NOVEL ATTRACTION The opening of the new Murray the ater, Tenth and Main streets, has been postponed until Monday evening, October 11, by Manager O. G. Murray. The failure of the contractors to com plete the lobby and box office of the theater is responsible for the week's delay. Mr. Murray had hoped to open the theater in time for the Fall Festival with a strong vaudeville show, char acteristic of the attractions to be giv-1 en at this theater. Although he might have done so, even though the box office and lobby were not completed, he felt that it wouid be wiser to wait for one week when a grand open ing might be jnade with everything in readiness. Gets Good Attractions. The attractions to be booked at the theater are the best on the Murray Sun circuit, of approximately twelve houses. Mr. Murray plans to increase the attractions to four acts each show. Instead of three, and give illustrated songs and motion pictures in addition. Owing to the increased cost in bring ing the better talent to the city, the prices of the new theater will be slightly advanced. The theater will be the most beauti ful on the Murray-Sun circuit. The Interior decorations will be very at tractive but more especially those of the lobby and entrance. The remainder of the building will not be ready for occupation by tenants for three or four weeks yet. Wanted A baby. It doesn not make any particular difference just what kind of a baby ia procured, just so it is small enough, as well as young enough, to perform the experiment successfully. Of course a baby of good disposition is desired. The baby is wanted by Pilgrim Bros hardware company, who have on dis play at their store during the Fall Fes tival, a baby incubator. The incubat or is much like the regular chicken in cubator and will no doubt attract a large number of visitors to the store. The tray for holding the baby is equip ped with a soft, downy pillow. Th baby, if one is secured, will be on dis play, it being possible to see it through a glass window. A recent traveller in that land of dikes and windmills has been at pains to make notes of the names bestowed by the Dutch merchants upon their country houses. Here are a few ex amples translated: 'Our Content ment." "Joy and Peace," "Leisure and happiness," "My Desire is Satis fied, "Friends and Quiet," "My Wife and I," "Not So Ban." To say the least, any one of these would seem to indicate more of the genuine senti ment of the house-holder than can pdssibly be expressed by the "Belle Vues" and "Cedars" of Suburbia.

ADMISSION 10 cents Amusements Prof. Cras. Richet, of Paris, has devised a means for purifying the air in rooms. His apparatus is an air filter, which mechanically sterilizes air. Very fine drops of glycerine are scattered along the walls of a cylin der containing a suction fan. Each particle of air drawn in by the fan is freighted with glycerine and hence tends to drop, thereby carrying with it the germs, dust and microbes with which it may be laden. Genie Harry C.

The metropolitan cities of the Unit ed States get performances in their theaters that the smaller cities cannot support on account of the enormous expense, such as great productions with 200 people on the stage, which possibly is the only reason that the production is great. Richard Mans field when starring in "Cyrano de Ber- gerac" of "Henry V." could not afford to play the smaller cities but last sea Bon in "Beaucaire" it was possible for him to do so because he merely car ried a limited nuuiber of fine artists in his support, still this play was just as attractive in metropolitan cities as one of his great-number-of-people pro ductions. Other artists play large cit ies that can afford to play smaller cities also, for instance, Mgrs. Walters and Way make it possible for Miss Courtenay Morgan to play them be cause "A Woman of Mystery" can be played by a moderately small com nan V. Tt. Is honed that the citizens of Richmond will give credit to our local manager for bringing such attractions to our city thereby encouraging more j artists of this qualiiy to come. j Murray Theater.
