fAQE EIGHT. AMUSEMENTS TLe Jap Veteran's Story V J illQPP fiW Yf " THE MORNING PALLADIUM Ml 1 1 i 1$ , Record Broken at the New Phillips. All records for attendance at the New lhillips vaudeville theatre were broken yesterday both at the mati nee and night performances, and the day's attendance taken together was the best in the history of the house. Jt was a splendid-start for the year li)0(J and Manager Murray was all smiles last night. Last night the crowd was so large that many were not able to get in and the standing room was so closely taken that it be came almost uncomfortable. The bill being put on this Aveek is one that is highly, pleasing, taken as a whole. The demonstrations with liquid air, under the title of "The Mysterious Crucible," are' of a mar velous nature and are given just as they are advertised. This feature is one that will appeal not only to those 'who ordinarily attend the vaudeville, but to hundreds of others who watc.Ii the development ofsubjects of a sci entific nature. Accompanying the demonstrations there is a talk on liquid air that is of a highly interest ing nature. A cake of ice Avas set on tire, a kettle of water was boiled on a cake of ice, iron and steel were turned to molten metal, steel bars were Avelded together in a few sec onds and a horseshoe Avas moulded in a few seconds, just as advertised. There is no illusion about the liquid air demonstrations. All is done- in the full view of the audience and it js of a most remarkable and enter taining nature. Other features of the bill are also worthy of 'mention. The Exerts put -on a comedy sketch, Charles Miller, monologist, made a decided hit in black face, Mile. Aline demonstrated her ability as a hoop roller and jug gler. Addison and Livingston are far above Ihe average in their com edy skit Avhile the illustrated songs arid motion pictires are of the best. "Escaped from Sing Sing" is one of the motion pictures, probably is as good as any ever seen at tlip New Phillips. There is little doubt that t lie business will bo big ail week. ' Uichard Carle's big and successful musical play of last, season, "The Maid and the Mummy," has started auspiciously on its second prosper ous year. This is the musical piece that has the enviable record of a three-months run in New. York, a three months 'run in Philadelphia, and a three months' run in Chicago. The company is largely the- same as itwas last winter, and the mechanical and electrical effects are greater than ever. Not satisfied with the dozen or more song hits in the piece, Mr. Carle last summer added one more, with chorus accompaniment. It is the chorus work in this musical melange that has come in for the most ex- .-.V. y & -.V- 6 ?

The play has been tersely described ;s 4a tale of love and luck" and "n slice, of life." It has received unstinted praise from the metropolitan critics, both for the matter it contains and the manner in which the matter is presented. Amoiivr the company, w1:ich besides Mr. Roberts, nearly numbers 150 people, are Miss Kathcrine Mnlkins, Alice Martin, Lydia Dickson. Mvra Mae Reynolds, Dave Graham, Jr., Charles Villard, Wallace Worsley and W. IT. Clarke. The play is a dramatization of Henry M. Blossom, Jr.'s book 4 'Checkers'" A liberal part of the book is deA'oted to the old old story, told in language new, and another liberal part tells of the ex citement of the race track and the keen, intense customs of the betting ring.

Among them was one Avho to me AAas especially charming. Iler name translated into your language would be Cherry. There Is little of the cherry in our Japanese complexions, but there was a slight tinge of red in. Cherry's cheeks, and her eyes were very bright. She was especially kind to me, and I learned to look eagerly for her coming to my bedside. Indeed Avhen she was absent I was miserable. That, I loved Cherry was revealed to me in this Avise: Kurata occupied a cot opposite mine, and one morning I saAV Cherry go to him and ask Iioav Lie Avas getting on. I saw tears in his eyes as he replied. Tears in the eyes of a sol dier! I gave way to the contempt I had thus far repressed. . Then I save Cherry take his hand, press it Avarmly and look tenderly in eyes that respond ed Aviih equal tenderness. Instinctively I felt for my sword, Avhich, of course. was not at my side. That is Iioav I learned that I loved Cherry. We Avere setting ready for a fight, and I insisted on being discharged from the hospital that I might take my place at the front. P.efore setting forth I could not refrain from saying some ill natured Avords to Cherry about the sympathy that Aas passing be tween lur and Kurata. I Avas so dis agreeable abo'.t it that Cherry told me to mind my own business. That busi ness being to fight, I Avent forth to kill as many Russians as possible. This was just before the battle of Liaoyang. Kurata rejoined us before the fight or..-:ed, and. though his health was 1'.- :r.:;' veil re-tored, his spirits were nuu-h depressed.

We who had watched his bravery Avith sin-prise and admiration Avere suddenly turned back to contempt at seeing him tumble over In a faint. Some said that he had left the hospital too soon. This satisfied others, but I avus not iu a position to do him justice. On the third day of the fight I felt a numbness in my leg and a sudden col lapse of nerve poAver. Looking down, I saAv a red stream running doAvu my trousers into my boot. I tramped on for a fw minutes, then sank doAvn and in tin.u Avas carried to the rear on a stretcher. A temporary hospital had been set up in a field, -which Ava3 croAvded Avith wounded. Some of the nurses I bad seen during my illness wove there, but it Avas no place for well persons rave surgeons, avIio were cutting and saAving in the manner usu al at a battle. One slglit'l saw maddened me. Ku rata had been severely Avounded,' and kneeling beside him, holding bis hand and encouraging him Avhile be waited for a surgeon to attend him, Avas Cher ry. Presently she Avent to one of the surgeons, and I saw that, she Avas pleading Avith him to go to her lover, for I could not doubt that such was the relation between her and Kurata. The surgeon AA-ent Avith her and, unbutton ing the wounded man's coat, ripped open his shirt. Cherry Avas betAveen me and the Avounded man, so that I could not see Avhat Avas going on, but there were some words between the surgeon and Cherry, who got a blanket and held it between Kurata and the rest of. us. I supposed that Kurata Avas liable to die .under the extraction of the bullet or whatever the surgeon should do la him, but iu a field hospital filled with men, some one of whom yvas dying every few minutes, I could see no ne cessity for f o much delicacy. But ay hat could be expected iu the case of a man Avho Avould faint after a fight? Well, doubtless the boy had got his quietus, and I should no longer be puzzled about him. When Kurata had been attended to Cherry bent over him and kissed him. Though I had long given her up to him, the sight galled me, and I was mean enough to Avish that Kurata might die of his wouuds. Cherry, turning, noticed me, and I saw anxiety in her eyes at once. Coming to me, she begged me to tell her how seriously I was hurt and with an earnest interest that - under other circumstances would have de lighted me. "Go," I said, "and attend to your cry fcaby soldier. 1 can get on alone." "The secret is out." she replied, "and you may know that Kurata ts a girl." So it Avas all explained.' Everything Kurata hn 1 done vnis womanly, even to standing up tn-;m.dy before "daiigar and", collapsing' when 'there was 111 dan ger. She lmd followed a lover and come very near losing her life for doing fo. I think she was afterward married to him. And, as for Cherry, now that peace has come, she is to be united to me.
