THE LAKE COUNTY TIMES PAGE FIVE. 1 THEATRICAL NOTES. IK WOLF IIOPrEIU De Wolf Hopper will bring his en gagement at the GarricU theater, Chi cago, to a close on Saturday night, Nov. 10. For the first three days of the week he will be seen In "Happy land," and during the last three he will present a very sumptuous revival of "Wang." Mr. Hopper Is surround ed by the ame company as last season Marguerite Clark, William Danforth and all the old favorites are in the cast, and tho organization Is one of the best ever seen In this country. Mr. Hopper has signed a contract with the Shuberts for a long term of years. The announcement made to this effect during the Oarrick engagement of the popular star, sets at rest all gossip that he was likely to desert the Independents for the trust. In the spring Mr. Hopper Is to take his en tire company to Europe and will pre sent "Happytand," "El Cap! tan" and "Wang" in the British metropolis. This will be the first time that a comic opera organization Iia3 been taken over to Europe, and the result of the experiment is awaited with a good deal of Interest. Mr. Hopper is the most popular of all the American actors who have played on the Euro pean continent, and it is rather ex pected that he will have a long and brilliant run In the Shuberts' magni ficent play-house across the Atlantic BE-lILIt SERSIOMZED. Ho less than fifty of Chicago's lead ing ministers used for the theme of their sermon last Sunday the beauti ful story of "Hen-Hur," as told and Illustrated In the magnificent specta cle created from General Lew Wal lace's religious romance, now in the fourth week of its successful run at the Auditorium thea'ter. The atten tion given this play by the clergy 6lnce Its first performance In Chicago has been truly remarkable. Several who have witnessed It have voluntar ily written personal endorsements to Mr. Milward Adams, director of the Auditorium. One may absorb more Information about the people and the times of Christ at one sitting of "Ben-Hur" at the Auditorulm, than could be obtain ed by weeks of study and long, ex pensive Journeys. So skillfully has the work of dramatization of General Wallace's rellglo-historic novel been done that no offense is given to the most sensitive. In the wonderful scene on the Mount of Olives, where the cleansing of the lepers is accom plished, the presence of the Nazarene Is most effectively symbolized by a ray of marvelously pure light. While this scene Is the greatest in the play, one should not Imagine that "Ben-Hur" Is exclusively a religious play. It is a pow erful, realistic stage narative, concern ing strong.picturcsque characters of one of the most interesting periods in the world's history, and has all the ele merits of love, comedy, thrilling Inci dents, beautiful tableaux and mechani- ; cal novelties and triumphs, considered so essential in plays now-a-days in fact, "Ben-Hur" is a combination of several forms of the highest types of plays." The brilliant musical score, written by Edgar Stillman Kelly, has helped a great deal towards Its suc cess, and in the present staging at the Auditorium theater, an orchestra of fifty pieces Is employed In conjunc tion with the Auditorium grand organ, the combination giving a highly dig rifled and impressive rendering of Mr. Kelly's music. The engagement of "Ben-Hur" at the Chicago Auditorium is a limited one, therefore those who Intend wit nessing it, should lose no time In writing for seat reservations, for the remainder of its stay at Chicago's big amusement temple will no doubt at tract immense audiences. CIIICAGO OrEItA HOUSE. Capacity houses were tho rule last week, from the opening to the close of the presentation of Arthur Henry Jones' famous play, "The Dancing Girl." It was a strong production, dealing with the deepest emotion of tho woman heart, the thwarted ambi tion, the appeal to the artistic life too strong to be resisted, even though It meant the rending of home ties and filial responsibility. Miss Jane Oaker, as Drusilla Ives, the dancing girl, en tered so Into the spirit of the part that the atmosphere came over the footlights In waves. It Is one of the notable things about the productions at this theater, however, that the company is so carefully selected and work so thoroughly in accord, that the whole performance is a perfect unit. In the play presented this week the action moves onward to one of the most stirring climaxes which have thrilled Chicago audiences in many a day. This is where the father of Drusilla, who has previously belleTed that his daughter was still a good girl, discovers the truth and curses her In the midst of a crowded ball room. Next week an ever-popular favorite Is to bo put on, and the advance sale of seats has already forecasted whatlthe stores of these enterprising drug mav be expected during the whole runlets: Jas. W. Wels. E. ii. Stauffer & of the performance. The production Is to be the powerful heart-interest drama, "The Banker's Daughter," one of the strongest plays ever produced from the mind and pen of Bronson Howard. The story of a marriage of convenience, a separation and ultimate reconciliation through the efforts of a little child, affords a series of sit uations which hold the audience en thralled, while the daughter's love for her father, and a child's power over her parents, affords psychological and heart-Interest to the full. BEX-1IUR" INTERESTS X OX-THEATERGOERS Thousands upon thousands of people who seldom visit a playhouse are crowding the Chicago Auditorium nightly to see "Ben-Hur." The keen interest they manifest in its enactment causes regret that more plays of this character; are not in existence. "Ben Hur" with Us lustrous Star of Bethle hem, its camels and chariot steeds. Its oriental trappery and splendor of the gorgeous cast Is one of the most elab orate spectacles ever staged, and yet the appeal of General Wallace's re- of "The Man of Calvary" is brought home with all-compelling force. The Star of Bethlehem,' the adoration of the Wise Men, the heart-throbbing tale of the meeting of Christ with Hur, the greetings of the great multitude on the Mount of Olives and the final miracle of the cleansing of the lepers these are some of the Incidents of "B?n Hur" which separate It from Other plays and make it in Its grandeu stand apart. Special attention is being glvew .o the public of this vicinity who are de sirous of witnessing this mighty play. It Is advisable to write well in ad vance for seats so that desirable loca tions may be secured. Mail orders with remittances addressed to Mr. Mil ward Adams, dicertor Auditorium thea ter, Chicago, will receive prompt at tention. The scale of prices for night performances and Saturday matinees is $1.50 and $1.00 for the lower floor; $1.00 and 75 cents for the balcony and 50 cents for the gallery. While at the Wednesday matinee the entire lower floor 13 $1.00; entire balcony, 75 cents, gallery 50 cents. No performance of "Ben-Hur" Is ever given on Sunday. CALUMET THEATER SOUTH CHICAGO. For the week beginning with the matinee Sunday, Nov. 4, the manage ment of the Calumet theater, South Chicago, has selected that famous melo-drama, "The Power of the Press," one of the most powerful melo-dramas on the stage. The piece has a world wide fame and Manager Conners an nounces that he will produce it in a most elaborate manner. The piece is to be very prettily staged with con siderable new scenery and a most cap able cast. "The Power of the Press" has been produced from one end of the country to the other and has been ex travagantly praised by the press and public. In this play Manager Conners assures his patrons one of the finest attractions of the season and it is predicted that a record-breaking busi ness will be done at the Calumet next week. The bill of specialties will likewise be an exceptionally strong one and will be headed by Jimmy Lucas, that Inimitable black face comedian, who has appeared with marked success at the various vaudeville houses all over the country. Miss Florence Rayfield will entertain with the illustrated songs, in which she has been making such a hit all year, and the bioscope will have another and very interest lng set of motion pictures. Come and enjoy a pleasant afternoon or even ing at South Chicago's cozy family theater. CE.. WALLACE'S AUTOBIOGRAPHY. To the many personal friends, ac quaintances and admirers of General Lew Wallace, the announcement that his autobiography has just been placed on the market by Harper & Bros, will be of interest. With a dramatized ver sion of his "The Prince of India" oc cupying the attention of New York and "Ben-Hur" that of Chicago at the Auditorium theater, this interest is accentuated. The last years of Gen eral Wallace's many-sided career were spent in the preparation of his re markable story, under the old beech tree at his home in Crawfordsville, where "Ben-Hur" was written, the General transcribed his career on the diverse fields of arms, letters, politics and diplomacy. The book is rich In reminiscence, several chapters being devoted to his literary labors, in which he recounts how "Ben-Hur" the book which has been read by an innumerable company and the drama which has been witnessed by more than five million people came to be written anc1 later dramatized. The story is a force ful presentation of the man himself, an intensely individualistic character and one of the most picturesque per sonalities of our times. DOXT CURE Prevent disease.

He has raised three crops of corn on one piece of land in the last fifteen months. Each crop yielded not less than fifty bnsheh to the acre. lie does not have to wait for the ground to thaw in the Spring'. Almost as soon as he harvests one crop he can plant for the next. He is not afraid that the weather will be too wet or too dry or too cold. He waters his land by irrigation and has an inexhaustible supply of water. If you will write Mr. Closner at Hidalgo, Texas, h will tell you more about this country. Wouldn't you like to have a small farm in the Gulf Coast County where success does not depend on uncer tain weather with irregular rainfall? Son the land is cheap and you can get it on easy terms. Twenty acres will cost you about $300. The cost of clearing it is about $5 an acre. The cost of water Tor irrigation varies. You may want an artesian well of your own you may get water from some river; or you may get it from your neighbor. But the cost is not great and those who have tried it have netted the first crop, a sum which has paid all expenses, and left a good surplus.
