The attraction at the Gennett the ater next Friday evening will be the beautiful, romantic comedy, "The New Dominion," with Clay Clement, the author, heading his capable com pany, in the leading role of Baron von llohentaunen. In "The New Dominion" Mr. Clement has given to the stage one of the most delightful and meritorious productions of recent years. It is a comedy whose absolute purity, gen uine humor and romantic interest have made it truly idyllic, and, how ever familiar it may be, it is of the class of plays to which -repetition only seems to lend an added charm. "The New Dominion" is a beau tiful romance, unfolded amidst the picturesque environment of the Sun ny South, and although og absorbing interest, possesses the usual distinc tion of being a southern play devoid of any reference to the war. "The New Dominion" tells the pretty love store of a little southern maiden and a titled German student, who is trav eling leisurely through the south in search of rare botanical specimens, and stopping for a time with the aris tocratic, but impoverished Randolph family. The German student arouses Flora May Randolph's interest in the study of botany, and, together, they roam the shadow, silent woods and sunny fileds conning a lesson con tained in no learned botanical trea tise. But Flora May is pledged to a neighboring planter, who holds a mortgage on her father's overburd ened lands, and their unspoken dream is rudely shattered by the appear ance of the girl's jealous and blust ering betrothed. In the role of Baron von Hohen stauffen, Mr. Clement has portrayed one of the finest types of the chival rous bravery and stately courtesy of the German aristocrat ever depicted on the stage, and his astonishment at the young planter's overbearing rude ness, his gathering wrath and fiery resentment when he realizes the southerner's intention of insulting him, constitutes an exceptionally fine piece of character work. The pic turesque southern types in the play, and the beautiful scenic effects which faithfully portray the localities they represent, combine to make "The New Dominion" a thoroughly de lightful play. Seldom has a new play won so much immediate favor as "New England Folks," which is announced by Manager Murray to appear at the Gennett theater tomorrow night. Its story is a simple one of "down east" life, the leading character being Mrs. Puffy, a widow of few words, a quaint person, whole souled, willing helper and adviser, loved by every one, young and old. its comedy, pathos are all happily blended, while the dialogue is pure in thought and action, hvery lover of homely com edy properly presented on the dra matic stage should avail themselves of the opportunity of seeing Harry La Marr, in his latest and original creation, that has no equal today. that of Mrs. Puffy. The cast is a noteworthy one and includes many well-known comedy players. Many bright musical numbers and special ties are introduced by the star and company during the evening's enter tainment. Miss Murena Del mar, a former member of the Castle Square Apera company, will be seen in the ingenue role of Lottie, and will sins several solos. "New England F oiks" las no dull moments.

Philadelphia now claims to be "the best lighted city in the United States." It is led to make this claim after hav ing erected 500 new electric street lights and as a result of comparison with the number of street lights main tained by other cities. The Quaker City now maintains nearly 10,000 lights, or, to be exact, 9,977. Chicago, covering a much larger area, now operates , 4.SS1 arc lamps from its municipal plants and rents C05 more arc lamps, which are oper ated by private companies, making a total of 5,480 electric street lights. In addition to these lights, however, Chi cago has 23,000 gas lamps and C,200 gasoline lamps. In the absence of fig ures regarding Philadelphia's gas lamps it is vpt possible to make comparisons as to total lights of all kinds. In the matter of arc lamps, however, it is evi dent that Philadelphia is away ahead of Chicago. The history of street lighting in Phil adelphia is interesting because it is a history of the development of the arc light. When Brush of Cleveland in vented the arc light, as every one knows, he had a hard time convincing city authorities of its practicability. It was ridiculed by inventors and electri cians and its failure predicted. After many unsuccessful efforts to secure its adoption in Philadelphia a local com pany offered to light Chestnut street with the arc lights for a year for noth ing. The offer was accepted in a city ordinance passed by the Philadelphia council on June 20, 1S81, and the dark and gloomy thoroughfare was convert ed into a brilliantly lighted promenade. This marked the beginning of a very wide and rapid extension of the arc lighting system not only in Philadel phia, but all over the Union. In Phil adelphia, it is claimed, the increase of lights has caused a great decrease in crime, burglary and thievery being very rare. It has also effected a great change in house architecture, the old fashioned outside "shutters" being done away with and ornamented glass panels being placed in front doors. Chicago Record-Herald. Why the President Smile. By the way, a lady of the official circle claims she has made a discov er as to the origin of one of the pres ident's best known traits. It is the habit of keeping a smile or the sem blance of a smile on bis face on all oc casions. "If you ever saw the presi dent when he was forced to banish his smile," this lady confided to a friend the other day, "you would un derstand why it is be has acquired the habit of wearing it on all possible oc casions. I never saw him without it until the other day at Mrs. Hoar's fu neral, and I give you my word I don't want to see him without it agaim No one would call his face handsome or attractive, even when he looks his best and smiles his genialest. But when his face is in absolute repose and not only serious, but solemn well, it's enough to startle a timid person. It's the most solemn human countenance you ever saw. He probably found that out long ago, and that's why he wears the smile that doesn't come off. He is entitled to wear it." Washing ton Letter to Pittsburg Post. The Wayi of Drummer. When tlie English commercial travel' er arrives in a town and finds that his merchandise is not appreciated he leaves by the next train and never comes back. The German under similar circum stances also leaves, but only to return with goods suited to the tastes of the inhabitants. As for the French drummer, he re mains in spite of rebuffs and always succeeds eventually in persuading un willing customers that his merchan dise is just what they want. Speech of French Minister of Commerce. Ivintf Kdward'h Cljcnrs. King Edward of England has been such a great lover of tobacco for many years that innumerable stories are told of him as a smoker, and the prices and quality of bis cigars are often discuss ed freely by those who cannot possibly know anything at all about the mat ter. It is an honor, of course, to be given a cigar by his majesty, and many of the recipients, if they cannot pre serve the precious memento without smoking it, usually preserve the "fag end" of the smoke that came from the royal case to hand down to their chil dren as an heirloom. The Prenldent'a Mnrrlagre Regltter. President Roosevelt's marriage regis ter is in London at St. George's, Hano ver square, and so many American tourists have flocked to see it that for convenience sake it has been placed by itself In an accessible alcove of the old church building. President Roosevelt's marriage to Miss Carow took place so long ago seventeen years ago, to be exact that few persons remember that the American president was married In a foreign land. He is, it is said, the only American president whose wed ding was not celebrated under the stars and stripes. a!1inc Carrlnsre.
