That beautiful school b.illdlng with a!l the most modern and sanitary conveniences! I took many a drink of water I really did not want Just for the novelty of drinking out of a sanitary fountain. Richmond may be Justly proud of her art colection and art gallery and I think we club women wero wonderfully favored by J'.avlng the privilege or the gallery and a catalogue, during the sessions of the federation. Tint to me the crowning glory of the federation was the organ recital. I, being an Episcopalian, chose io call it a Vesper service. If I could paint n word picture to you of the day, the hour, the place, which would adequate ly describe It all. I would. Indeed, do well. You, who love nature so well, will see with your mind's eye what I fail to say. Golden October Day.

The man who likes to have his risi bilities aroused will laugh heartily when J. E. Dodson, the distinguished character actor, known to theater go ers for twenty years, appears here in "The House Next Door," a comedy which Mr. Dodson Is playing now for a third season. It will be seen at the Gennett on Friday, . Nov.' . 11. The comedy was one of the big successes at the Gaiety theater. New York. - The first act is said to be pure farce, while the second and third acts are described as pure comedy with a strong situation or two and some pathos as the final curtain approaches. Mr. Dodson Interprets a crusty, crab bed, disagreeable old aristocrat whose' Irascibility is so . Intense that " it is positively amusing. Because he is wejl born he hates anybody who can not boast of noble lineage. His next door neighbor is a splendid man aid very wealthy and a baronet, but as he rose from the people, the aristocrat. Sir John Cotawold cannot tolerate him and chafes under an enforced residence in his vicinity. , Other mem bers of the two families are very in ''mate and the young people in each vjsehold are in love. Sir John in ;lts his neighbor whenever he sees him and the latter regards this as an eccentricity, fdr he has real affection for the old man and his family, now impoverished, and he owns the very house in which they live. The situa tions and the Insults of Sir John provoke hearty laughter. Mr. Dodson will be splendidly supported by a company 'organized by Cohan & Har ris. ts Climax."

Joe Weber has long been identified with the American stage and prlncl pally through' the success which he made with Joe Weber's theater. New, York City. Had all the laughter that came out of this home of merriment been collected together, it would have made all the American people smile during the recent panic. It is not surprising that Mr. Weber should at last take up the more seri ous side of the drama.' Laughter un masks the soul. But Joe Weber has been making the people laugh for two decades and by this time he ought to know what they want.' . It Is safe to rely on the promise, therefore that "The Climax" will prove well worth while. , Howe's Pictures. The following elegram was recent ly received by Lyman H. Howe from the manager of the Garrlck theater, Philadelphia, "Matinee and evening houses entirely sold out before noon every day this week. Turning hun dreds away. Tour truly remarkable features the talk of all Philadelphia. Can't you extend this engagement?" This is of peculiar interest to local amusement patrons because Mr. Howe will present exactly the same program at the Gennett during his coming en gagement there. It includes exclus ive scenes of the funeral pageant of King Edward VIII In London and Windsor with close facial portraits of the world rulers attending it; and of our special ambassador, Col.

Mrs. Flake. America's foremost dramatic artist, will be seen in the greatest role of her career, "Becky Sharp," at the Gennett on next Satur day evening. "Becky Sharp" in which Mrs. Flske's realization ot the "immor tal Becky" stands as one of the most signal contributions that the Ameri can stage has known, is a dramatiza tion of Thackeray's famous novel. Vanity Fair." made by Langdon MitchelL . With its various groups of strongly differentiated characters and its mul tiplicity of incidents, "Vanity Fair" has always been held to be replete with dramatic material. It has been said that there are a dozen plays in the noveL Many have been made, but none other than this by Langdon Mitchell ever scored any particular success. No skillful dramatist should ever attempt to make a play of the book without making Becky the cen tral figure, since the interest centers and radiates with her as the princi pal object of the story. Mr. Mitchell in making his play, put every import ant Incident in which Becky predomi nates into his work. He displayed re markable appreciation of the dramatic values of the novel, and an equally pronounced ability in assembling them in dramatic sequence. Experts have continued to marvel at the syme- try of Mr. Mitchell's work, the march of its events, and the completeness of the story as it is unfolded, : In the play as it stands the reader of "Van ity Fair" will find that peculiar satis faction that flows from the picturing of a favorite novel on the stage the living embodiment of Its characters and the actuality of its scenes while one unacquainted with Thackeray's story, if there be such a one, will enjoy the play as a perfect narrative in itself. In view of the many fail ures fhicb have been witnessed in at tempts to turn some of our greatest novels into plays, Langdon Mitchell's accomplishment is. not only unique but deserves the high place it has tak en dramatic literature.
