Florence Gear in "Fluffy Ruffles"
At the Murray.
The patrons of the Murray theater
this week are assured of a big show
us every act is worthy of being head
liners. The Marimba Band composed
of Gautemalaus produce music, both
classical and popular which pleases
every audience. They were in Indiana
polis last week and the News of that
cify spoke very favorably of their per
formance. "The Cashier" presented
by Romaine Fielding and Mabel Vann.
One must see the act to appreciate ful
ly the strength anj Jramatic tension
are capable of wrapping around an au
dience. It is one of the most fascina
ting, exciting natural and human stor
ies ever given to the public by two
recognized New York performers. Bar
rett and Company present 20 laughs
in 20 minutes with "The Previous Mr.
Fresh." Another musical act is ren-!
dcred by Martell and Itossi Italian
Operatic Duo. With the motion pic-j
tu res a complete program is in store '
for all patrons of Richmond's popular
losing every position immediately af
ter she had secured it. In the case of
the alluring "Fluffy Ruffles," this dis
quietude takes the form only of a hum
orous indulgence in the whims of her
host of masculine admirers, who al
ways bring trouble in the wake of their
proffers of heart and hand. However,
this musical comedy is intended sim
ply to amuse. It is light and frothy,
but never frivolous, the book, lyrics
and music all challenging the atten
tion of the most earnest theafr goers.
There are a number of new songs in
"Fluffy Ruffles" that will be whis
tled as soon as they are heard, and
there are many laugh producing situa
tions which it is easy to believe such
a clever comedienne as Miss Gear
makes the most of.

Pantomimic Comedy.

nesday, February J with the same
great cast that has, kept Chicago in a
roar of laughter for many months.
Messrs. Wm. A. Brady and Joseph R.
Grismer have established a reputation
for splendid productions and "A Gen
tleman From Mississippi" is their lat
est message of this sort. To begin
with, the play is one of the most de
lightful comedies that has been seen
in many years. Senator "Bill" Lang
don has been sent from Mississippi to
represent that state in Washington.
The supporters of the trusts expect
to find him an easy mark, but the sim
ple old planter proves himself more
than a match for them in diplomacy
and fighting. He falls into the hands
of Mud Haines, a young newspaper
correspondent, whom he makes his
private secretary and who guides him
safely over the slippery places. Lang
don's . daughter and the secretary
form a mutual attachment and this be
comes the principal love interest of
the play. The old senator, himself
smitten with a widow, his eldest
daughter and a congressman from
her native state also become victims
of the tender passion and the Infection
even spreads to Langdon's stenograph
er who reciprocates the burning senti
ment of a young newspaper man. The
course of these true loves is filled with
the proverbial rocks and the bumps
they receive provoke much hearty
One of the delightful features of "A
Gentleman From Mississippi" is its
clean, wholesome wit and humor.
There is not a suggestive or indecent
line or situation in the entire play. It
is the merriest of bright comedies, yet
the cleanest. Seats will be placed on
sale tomorrow morning.
with the suddenness of inspiration.
Among the portrayers of the agile,
the incredible, and the humoresque,
the Byrnes Brothers have an interna
tional reputation. To be able to pro
long laughter a whole evening and
not to have it pale for an instant, is
skill of high order. But such is true
of the famous pantomimic artists,
who will soon be seen at the Gen
nett theater when a matinee will be

is to be relied upon. The measure
then will go to the house and will be
referred to the committee on postoffi

be held promptly. This caucus will
recommend the passage of a postal

from that fathered by Senator Carter

about the political situation
In this week's issue of the Liberty!
Herald. Editor Stivers, who opposed ;

county polls:
At the republican nominating elec
tion in Wayne county last Monday,
Walter S. Commons received
votes and C. W. Stivers !,."(
This gives Mr. Commons a majority of

state senator for Union and Wayne
The result is not unexpected to Un
ion county republicans, nor to their
representative in the contest, as the
natural tendency of large counties of
a district to be selfish in selecting
nominees is well known.
It is conceded, however, that the
Union county cadidate put the matter
squarely up to the Wayne county re
publicans and appealed to them to re
cognize the just claims of Union to
the senatorial nominee in this cam
paign. The writer is gratified to say
that his contention in behalf of Union
county was generally admitted: but
Mr. Commons' general acquaintance
and long time service to his party
stood him well in hand in this con
test. This, coupled with neighborly
friendships, and the special Interests
centering in Richmond, combined to
make him at once as strong a candi

field for nomination.

Submit to Wertern Demand.
The leaders know that a postal sav
ings bank proposition is one of the
things upon which the public heart in
the west is set, and they understand
that a failure to enact it will be used
as an additional reason for depriving
the party of power In the next con
gress. Under the circumstances,
therefore, they see nothing to do but
to pass a bill.
Facing such a situation, it is the pur
pose of the opponents of the postal
savings bank system to make it as
harmless from their point of view as
possible. So far as Senator Aldrich,
chairman of the senate finance com
mittee, is concerned, he desires the
measure finally enacted to be so
framed that it will be helpful to the
central bank plan which he favors.
The central bank of issue scheme
proposes the emission of currency on
the basis of a gold reserve, instead of
bonds. This would make it unneces
sary for the national banks to stock
up heavily on the government bonds
for the purpose of securing their cir
culation by government securities, and

The Golden Girl.
Hough, Adams and Howard have
carved another nitch in the ladder of
fame, with their latest ' musical com
edy success "The Golden Girl," which
will be seen at the Gennett soon.
These authors have never yet known
what it is to write a failure, and in the
production of "The Golden Girl" they
are said to have outdone all previous
efforts, and made a distinct departure
from all former successes.
The plot contains a pretty love story
with scenes laid at West Point Mili
tary Academy and shows Messrs.
Hough and Adams in their merriest
mood, while Joe Howard's music is
pronounced the best he has ever com
posed. To say that the piece was
staged by Ned Weyburn is an assur
ance that it contains many novel and
unique features.
The principal parts are in the hands
of Willard Curtiss and Marie Flynn.
who are ably assisted by a score of
well known players, and a beauty
chorus of fifty, such as only the La

The big musical features are, "The
Indian Love Song," which gives am

and picturesque costuming, and "Wine,
Women and Song," which contains
many novel features; while the song
hits include. "I Think I Hear a WoodV
pecker Knocking on My Family Tree,"
"I Can't Love Everybody," "Let's Go
