THE LAKE COUNTY TIMES PAGE FIVE THEATRICAL NOTES. "BES-HUU" Mr. Milward Adams, director ol the Chicago Auditorium, and the Klaw & Erlanger company, controlling the pro duction of General Lew Wallace's "Ben Ilur", have arranged to take especial cure of theatre parties from out of town points during the enjfAg-emeni of "Ben-Hur" at the Auditorium theatre, beginning Monday evening, Oct. 15th. Since the announcement tlxat this migh ty play; was again to be staged at the classic Chicago temple of amusement, the management have received so many inquiries as to railroad rates and re quests for special prices for admission from educational institutions and fra ternal organizations desiring to attend In a body that they have decided to make reduced rates to theatre parties, either from educational Institutions, fraternal organizations, or from the general public. The various railroads entering the city of Chicago have agreed to cooperate by granting spe cial rates. Full information will b furnished on application to Mr. Edward G. Cooke, Auditorium theatre, Chicago. The regular scale of prices that will govern the "Ben-Hur" engagement at the Auditorium are as follows: Lower floor ita evenings and Saturday matinee, $1.50 and $1.00; Balcony. $1.00 and 75 cents; gallery, 50 cents. Wednesday matinees, entire lower floor, $1.00; en tire balcony, 75 cents; gallery, 50 cents. Beats are now obtainable. Requests for reservation of seats must be ac companied by remittance and self-addressed, stamped en elope for reply, in order to avoid errors, and will be given prompt attention. AT GARRICK XEXT WEEK. Lena Ashwell, the famous London actress who scored such & triumph this Bummer in her latest and greatest foot light creation of the Boer wife, De borah, in the heart-stirring drama of Transvaal life entitled "The Shuham lte," has for many seasons been recog nized as one of the llnest emotional actresses on the English speaking Stage. To American followers of dra matic affairs on both sides of the At lantic she is probabty best known as the original London creation of those two intensely dramatic roles which our stage has been able to give to the modern British stage the char acters of To San in "The Darling of the Gods," and "Leah Kleschna." A full view of Miss Ashwell's brilliant achievements In emotional art would be to name many of the most celebrated successes of John Bull's play houses since 1891, when she first made her debut in "The Pharisee," with George Alexander she appeared la "Lady Vln dermere's Fan." Her Initial engage ment with Sir Henry Irving was in 1893 as Elaine in the sumptuous pro duction of "King Arthur," and she was pronounced an artistic favorite with the Lyceum Knight. With Irving she played in "Richard II" and also origin ated the parts of IMa and Geona in Sar dou's "Dante." Heerbohm Tree spec ially secured her to create the role of Katusha Maslova in "Resurrection." It was she, too, who electrified all Lon don play goers by her wonderful por trayal of the unhappy Magdalene in Henry Arthur " Jones' moving play, "Mrs.- Dane's Defense." Her interview scene with the judge, in which she im plored for mercy and pity in her new life's love crisis, was the supreme sen sation of the London theatrical year of 1900. The Messrs. Schubert have been extremely fortunate In securing her consent to an American tour, just now when she has seemingly found an even more striking role of emotional tri umph in "The Shulamlte." There are Hypnotists and Hypnotists, but the kings of the, occult are the Flints. Herbert L. Flint is the first hypnotist to be called in a criminal case and have his testimony accepted as that of an expert. The feats that they do are simply marvelous and we mgy well expect a packed house when they come to thir city. There is noth ing in the world that equals their en tertainments. This is the verdict of the entire press and public wherever they have been this season. Both are great. The Flints are past masters in the art of suggestion, especially that part pertaining to provoking laughter. nEx-iirii opexs tonight. Preparations for a vastly greater "Ben-Hur" than that which was pre sented to the Chicago public in the Auditorium theater some twenty months ago have been under way for some time past. The resulting pro duction will be revealed tonight in that playhouse and the performance will mark the begininng of the seven teenth week and the one hundred and thirty-seventh enactment of the Wal lace romance in this city. "Ben-Hur" as arranged and staged by the Klawt& Erlanger company is a marvelous piece of stagecraft and no theater in America furnishes such opportunities for a col ossal presentation as does the Chicago auditorium. The city of Jerusalem, the interior of the Roman gallery, the raft of Ben Hur buffeted by the angry waves in mid ocean and the rescue are all strangely realistic. The tent of the Arabian shiek Ilderim glows with tar taric splendor and the scene on the moon-lit lake in the orchard of palms, where the beautiful Iras reclines in her barge and drifts down the silvery waters are beautiful spectacles. The scene of all scenes, however, is the miracle on the Mount of Olives w-ith which the performance termin ates. l shows the reunion of the prince of Hur with his mother and sis ter after the passing of Christ into Jerusalem. The mother and sister who have been afflicted with leprosy, have been cleansed by the Xazarene and they are surrounded by a wonder ing multitude who sing praises to Jesus of Nazareth. In this incident of the drama Christ does not appear as a per sonality. The music introduced in this scene is equal to that heard in grand opera. As the curtain falls the chorus of several hundred voices chants "This is Jesus of Nazareth," while the great orchestra renders the theme, "The Star of Bethlehem." The interpreting cast includes A. 11. Van Buren as Ben-Hur; John Ince, Jr., Messala; Robert McWade, Simonldes; Henry Weaver, Shiek Ilderim; Chas. Rlegel. Balthasar; Helen Singer, Iras; Mabel Brownell. Esther; Blanche Ken dall, Tircah; Margaret Dills, the mother of Hur, and Stella Bani'ne Weui-er( AmraU. BLUKEBS CUE2ESCY FLA!?

The ants which are really protective to plants are not those which obtain their food. Indirectly for the most part through the aphides, from the Tege ta ble kingdom, but those which are real ly carnivorous. These are numerous la temperate climates, and their useful ness to agriculture and sylviculture Is Incontestable. Thus the field ant Is a great insect destroyer. A nest of this species is capable of destroying as many as twenty-eight caterpillars and grasshoppers a minute, or 1,000 an hour, and such a colony is at work day and night during the pleasant season. In the arid plains of America the beneficent work of ants is revealed in the isie3 of verdure around their hills. There are plants hospitable to ants, which furnish them shelter and often food, within the cavities of which the instincts of the ants prompt them to take their abode. This is the case with several ferns, among them the rolypodium nectariferum, the sterile fronds of which bear nectaries on their lower face and are, moreover, of a shape favorable to sheltering the insect. 9 Iff ii of n Trained Nnrse. "I used to wonder why it was that I noticed so many young women lugging suit cases all over town," said the man on the street corner. "At first I thought perhaps they were independent young persons who were on their way to the Grand Central station or to the ferry boats to take trains, but then I no ticed them in parts of the town where they couldn't possibly be making for a railroad station, since they were go ing in the wrong directions. Now I have learned who these women are. Most of them are trained nurses. When they leave the hospitals or their homes to attend a case they pack their uni forms and other necessaries in these suit cases, which they carry with them. So when you see a young wom an carrying a suit case and bound In a direction away from a boat or railroad station it's very likely she's a trained nurse and is either starting out to at tend a case or is returning from one. New York Press. Colors of the Bluebird. Of the male bluebird Thoreau said, "He carries the sky on his back." To this John Burroughs added, "and the earth on his breast." The bird's back, wings and tail, chin and throat are a vivid blue, while his breast and flanks are a chestnut brown and his abdomen a dirty white. The female is very much duller in coloring, often having a red dish tone that extends from the middle of the back over the shoulder. The Seminole Indians say that the male bluebird once flew so high that his back rubbed against the sky, which imparted to him Its own azure tint. Returning to earth, his wife so admired his new coat that she determined to hare a like one for herself and the next morning flew away to get it, but the day proving somewhat cloudy the col or giyen to her dress was not so bril liant as was that received by her mate. Tle "World as It Is. A world without mistakes and with out suffering would be a world without real men and women, without litera ture, without music, without painting or sculpture and without love, and even without history, for history Is a record of struggles toward better and higher things. Without obstacles to overcome and errors to correct men and women would lapse to a level with beasts in mentality. Intellectual and spiritual development would cease and souls not refined by the fire of ordeals would die of something akin to fatty degeneration. The races would perish of ennui or inanity. After all, It's a pretty fair 6ort of world as it stands. Louisville Courier-Journal. The Aleutian Islands. Until the time of Peter the Great the 4Jeutlan islands were unknown. The famous Russian monarch, consumed with curiosity as to the distance be tween Asia and America, started, in ; 1725, the first of the expeditions that j at last revealed those haunts of the bear, the bearer, the ermine and the ; seal. But Captain Cook told more ; about the islands than did all the Rus sian explorers before him. The Price. If one sets one's heart on the ex ceptional, the far off on riches, on fame, on power the chances are he will be disappointed. He will waste his time seeking a short cut to these things. There is no short cut. For anything worth having one must pay the price, and the price is always work, patience, love, self sacrifice no prom ise to pay, but the gold of real service. His Name. An unpopular man who was refused membership in a certain aristocratic club had the audacity to write to the club secretary demanding the name of the maa who blackballed him. The sec retary could cot resist the chance of fending the following reply: "Sir, I have received your letter demanding the name of the man who blackballed you. His name is Legion." All Around the Clock. "Grandpa says his stay in the moun tains last summer did him no good. His room was right off the piazza, and people made love under his window until all hours."

Berries of the Beantifal and Fra grant Pimento Tree. The pimento, or allspice, tree is cul tivated in the West Indies and Jamai ca. This beautiful tree usually grows to a height of about thirty feet. It has a straight trunk, much branched above and covered with a very smooth brown bark. The leaves vary in s!e and shape, but are always of a dailc, shining green color. During the months of July and August the tree is in full bloom, the blossoms consisting of very fragrant small white flowers. When a new plantation of pimento trees is to be formed no regular sow ing or planting takes place, because it is next to impossible to propagate the young plants or to raise them from seeds in parts of the country where they are not found growing spontane ously. Usually a piece of land is se lected either close to a plantation al ready formed or in a part of the wood land where pimento trees are growing in a native state. The chosen piece of land is then cleared of all wood ex cept these trees, and the felled timber is allowred to remain on the ground for the purpose of protecting the very young pimento plants. At the end of two years the land is thoroughly cleared, and only the most vigorous pimento trees and plants are left standing. The plants come to ma turity In about seven years. In favorable seasons the pimento crop is enormous, a single tree often yielding a hundred or more pounds of the dried spice. The berries are picked while green, because if left on the tree until ripe they lose their pmigent taste and are valueless. The green berries are exposed to the sua for a week or ten days, when they lose their green color and turn a reddish brown. When perfectly dry they are put In bags and casks for exportation. The odor and the taste of the pimen to berries are thought to resemble a combination of those of cinnamon, nut meg and cloves; hence the familiar name "allspice." WAX TAPERS. Made Today as TUey Were la the Seventeenth. Century. In the manufacture of wax matches and the longhand slender tapers which are known as rats de cave (cellar rats) the method introduced into France by Pierre Blesmaire in the middle of the seventeenth century is still in use. The method is practiced today in the Carriere factory at Bourg lae Rine, near Paris. The cords of which the wick is composed pass into a basin of melted wax heated by a small furnace, from which they are drawn through a perforated plate to a large wooden drum which la turned slowly by hand. The operation is repeated two or three times, the size of the hole through which the cord passes being increased each time. When the waxed cord ha3 attained the required size it is wound on large reels in skeins of 400 or 500 meters (about 1,500 feet), which are boxed and shipped te wholesalers. It is also furnished in lengths of from three to ten meters, (ten to tbirty-three feet), folded as often as may be re ouired for convenient packing. These merchants and by sextons in lighting church candles. The very short and thick candles, called veilleuses, or night candles, are composed of a mixture of wax and stearin. The molding machine differs considerably from the apparatus used for ordinary candles, although the prin ciple of the operation is unchanged. After the little candles have cooled the attendant removes them from the molds and conveys them to women, who put them in tin cups, which pre- vent the escape of melted wax during combustion, and pass them to other women, who label and pack them.

BONAPARTE, Secretary of the Navy XARCHISM will not be removed mthin a given time or through a special measure or set of measures. Perhaps it will not be wholly removed in any time or by any means. I believe that anarchism has been and can be made less dan gerous by being dealt with SERIOUSLY AND RATIONALLY. In the first place the unlawful acts prompted by anarchism should be made crimes in so far as they are not, strictly speaking, crimes ! already, and should be punished with such penalties as are particularly j distasteful to the criminals and therefore the most effective deterrent3 ' to crime. To keep an anarchist for years in a penitentiary merely burdena the community with the support of an irreconcilable enemy, with con- xaent, characterized by complete seclusion, deprivation of all comfort denial of any form of distraction, and a severe, but not public. . rr-rrc.
