MADE ONE OP THE BEST PLAY HOUSES IN THE STATE IS COMPLETELY CHANGED Elegant Dressing Rooms for Actors and Actresses Many New Features. "When the Genuett Tlitearer opens its doors next Tuesday uight the pa trons of that popular house will be greatly surprised at the change which has been made in the entire interior of the house. In the course of remodeling which has been going on in the place since the first of September, not a thing has been left untouched from the back of the stage to the last row in the gallery, everything has been gone over and it will be hard for a number of people to recognize the place as the old Gennett. Manager Ira Swisher has spared no pains in making the theater one of the pret tiest small houses in the west and people of Richmond should be proud of it as it will rank among the best in the country. , As one steps in the door he is stmick with the beauty of the t lica tor and its freshness. The first tiling to catch the eye is the new proscenium opening. This is really a work of art. It "was painted by one of the best known decorators in the country and a prominent theat rical man, of Chicago, remarked yesterday that he hr.d never seen a prettier one in his life in any., the ater. Everything in the house has been repainted and re-decorated. Nine rows of new plush seats have been placed on the lower floor and 'the floor itself has been re-arranged so that patrons of the house will have more comfort while witnessing a performance. Xew seats have been placed in the balcony and three rows of opera chairs have been giv en over to the gallery gods. While ail of these changes have been made in the front of the house Manager Swisher has not fogo'tten the hard workers back of the stage. A num ber of changes have been made there and it will be but a short time until a new building will be com pleted in the rear of the theater for actors and actresses. The building will contain dressing rooms which will all be up to date and the young est chorus girl will have a room equal to a star's room in many play houses. In the alterations of Uhe house Manager Swisher has seen that all protection possible against fire has been made. The boiler roim, which was formerly underneath the theater has been moved so that there is no danger from that whatever. The largest fire escape in the city has been erected on the north side ' of the building. At each floor there is a large platform to the escape and the steps are wide and a hand railing is on either side of the es cape. All of the exits have red lights over them and these red lights will be kept burning all of the time. The exit doors themsel ves are fastened with an ingenious device which makes it very easy for them to be opened from the inside. The lauding on the second floor at the entrance of the balcony has been made considerable wider by the de struction of a room at that point and it is adorned by a. handsome carpet. The exterior of the theater has not been forgotten in the reconstruction of the theater as it has been painted a light stone grey color and trim med in a pale green. Taking it all in all the theater is one to be proud of and in the work of remodeling the prevailing idea has been for the comfort of everyone in the tlfeater, from the box holder to the scene shifter, and it is evident that this idea has been accomplished. It is Easy to Say "lie careful." but we must all go from heated houses'" into chill outer air, and the change sets us cough ing and wheezing.

No.86 RICHMOND GIRL Wins High Honors Kansas. in Wichita, The following article taken from the Wichita Daily Beacon, in regard to the fine playing of Miss Francis co, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Francisco, will be read with much interest and pleasure: "Miss Francisco deserves to rank high among the pianists who have played to Wichita audiences," was one expression of praise heard at the close of her recital at the Friends' university last night, and that expression embodies the, popu lar verdict passed upon her playing. Ever since coming to Wichita as in structor of piano at the Friends University, Miss Francisco has been very popular with the audiences of the city, but she added greatly to her popularity by her recital f last night. That was her first appear ance in recital work since her re turn from Oermany, after a year's study at the Berlin conservatory, and her playing shows a marvelous increase in breadth and brilliancy. The program last night was a col lection of numbers, which showed in splendid effect Miss Francisco's va riety in interpretation, besides giv ing her an opportunity to display ex cellent technic in most difficult pas sages. The program opened Avith the Bee thoven concerto in C minor and to many that "was the best thing on the program. Her rendition was full of spirit and brilliancy, of magnificent cliiuaves and the forte passages wrere played with the fire and grasp which a woman seldom can give. It is par ticularly this latter quality to her playing that makes Miss Francisco a favorite. She is 1 : f afraid to tackle li'r things on account of lack of power, and this together with her musical interpi"' ition makes her the artist she is. For a display of her appreciation of sudden varieties the i Schumann ' ' Papilions" worked ad- : nirablv. That selection was a se ries of character sketches, each dif fering remarkably from the one pre ceding it, and in Miss Francisco's rendition there was no monotony, but each was given the expression intended by the composer. The Scharweuka numbers demand ed much attention, for they were played with a masterfulness that bordered on perfection. The three were so different as to try any per former's ability in change of mood, but Miss Francisco did them admir ably. At the close she .was obliged to respond to a hearty encore, play ing a dainty number in a charming fashion. The last group on the program in clude two Chopin numbers, a Pre lude, and Etude, op. 30, No. 5, a Karganoff nocturne and Listz's Khapsodie Xo. 8.
