STRANGE CASE (Continued from first page.) over again and he is continually giv ing calls and yelling. A strange point about: the case is the fact that the hoy is only in these spells about two hours out of twenty-four and that during the rest of the time he appears to be in his right mind. He is being cared for by his parents until some disposition is made of him by the proper authorities. 6.P.O.E. WILL GIVE COMIC OPERA f ; " PROCEEDS OF WHICH WILL BE i GIVEN TO CHARITABLE ORGANIZATIONS Will Likely be Produced the Latter Part of February Committee Appointed. r ' . At some time during the present winter the Richmond Lodge of Elks will in all probability give a comic opera. It is the custom of the lodge to give some sort of an entertainment each winter, the proceeds of which are devoted to charity. While no definite plans have been made for the entertainment this year, it is under stood that the majority of the mem bers of the lodge favor an opera in preference to the time-worn min strel show. An entertainment com mittee has been appointed by the lodge to make definite plans for an entertainment of some sort and it is believed that this committee will re port next. Thursday night on an opera. Pinafore has a large number of friends among the Elks and it would not surprise very many if this opera was decided Upon. Pinafore presents a large field for amateur people as it is full of bright and sparkling lines and tuneful music. The Indianapolis lodge of Elks gave the opera about five years ago in a sort of a burlesque and it made an immense hit. The Richmond lodge probably will follow along the lines of the Indianapolis lodge. If the opera is given it will be produced some time in the latter part of Febru ary or the first of March. Three per formances probably will be given at the Gennett thteater and the produc tion will be staged in the elaborate manner which characterizes all Elk productions and entertainments. TURKEYS, CHICKEN & DUCKS AT HADLEY BROS. 30-2t FRANK LANE FOR NEW YEAR TURKEYS. PHONE 773. 30 -St POLICE DEPT. MAKES REPORT SUPT. GORMON SHOWS WHAT HIS MEN HAVE DONE DRUNKS HAVE THE El D With 261 Arrests Eighteen Persons Violated City Ordinances The Figures. For a city the size of Richmond the arrests during the past year have been very small. All told C01 persons up to last evening had found their way behind the bars of the local po lice station. The years ends today and the usual number of Saturday night drunks probably will swell the total by several. In 11)03 the police ar rested 57G people, this was 26 less than were arrested this year. Rich mond is very lucky in having such a few number of law breaking citizens. The police department is efficient and the people are all very law abiding and the laws and city ordinances are obeyed very nearly to the letter. One thing that keeps the number of ar rests to such a low number is the fact that when a person is arrested for 'any crime he is usually given the extreme penalty for that crime as described by law. This has a ten dency to keep people from breaking the laws. Wherever the courts are in any way lenient there is always a large number of crimes committed. Of course, the largest number of ar rests were for intoxication, about two-fifths of these arrested .being made on that charge. More arrests have been made during the past year on the charge of larceny than have ever been made before. Forty-eight of those arrested have been for crimes punishable by a sentence in the penitentiary. Not a single ar rest for murder was made during the year. The police department is to be complimented on the way in which laws have been obeyed and the condi tion of orderliness which prevails throughout the entire city. The arrests by months were as fol lows: , January 34 February , . ... 43 March 50 April 40 May 55 June GS July 70 August 42 Seteber 36 October 36 November 44 December 56 Total C02 Causes of Arrest.

"The Gentleman from Indiana," Booth Tarkington's story, has been dramatized ad will be given its first presentation at English's Oepra House in Indianapolis February 27. The play will be presented by Liebler & Co., and Mr, Edward Mor gan, whose accepted triumph as John Storm in "The Christian," and later as David Rosse in "The Eternal City," will be starred in the leading role. Everything in the way of stage equipment and talent will be provid ed and the production promises to be a notable one. The manuscript is now in the hands of George C. Tyler, of Lieber & Co. In speaking of the matter Mr. Tyler said : "Mr. Booth Tarkington, with whom I have had a contract for the past year or more, looking to a pro duction of his own dramatization of 'The Gentleman from Indiana,' has recently handed me the completed MSS. of what I am willing to' go on record as pronouncing the most thor oughly satisfactory play that nature which has come to my desk in many years. "I think it is the only play I have ever seen in which I have not been compelled to make more or less ex tensive alterations, and, so far as I can now judge, there will not be left to me the crossing of a t or the dott ing of an i in Mr. Tarkington's MSS. "I intend to make the initial pro duction of 'The Gentleman from In diana' at English's Opera House, in Indianapolis, February 27 next, with Edward Morgan in the leading role. "Mr. Tarkington has promised me that he will be present at the open ing performance in Indianapolis, artd I hore to make the event one worthy of the fame of Indiana's foremost novelist and dramatist." : Additional Society.
