MONDAY, OCT. 15 ,1906.
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.
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.

Ants ai Caeata of Plant.
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.

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.

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

fending the following reply: "Sir, I
have received your letter demanding
the name of the man who blackballed
you. His name is Legion."

without question th most marvelous scone ever staged in the annals of the
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."

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

The Cure For Anarchism
By CHARLES J. 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
