" POLLJY OF THE CIRCUS." Attractive Play to Be Presenited in * Newberry Opera House. on, Monday Evening. While New York theatre-goers have been thoroughly aroused by the erusade instituted by chureh and civic organizations against the pres ent alleged tendency to immorality on the stage as evidenced by sever al reeent productions, "Polly of the Circus," whieh is to be presented in its origiraal metropolitani magnitude at the Opera House on Monday, De cember 13, is receiving comnmenda tion by clergymen of all denomina tions in the various places it visits es one of the cleanest and .most ~wolesome plays of the age, and an -:entertaiinmen.t that no lover of an -evening of genuine enjoyment in the theatre .ean afford to miss. Telling, as it does, the story of . the odd romane- of a pretty little -cineus rider anrd a village pastor in the Middle West, "Folly of the Cir *eus" is a drama as original as it is refreshing, and is one of those rare piays that appeal to the "gallery gods" with the same force as to the occupants of orchestra chairs. Since .this epoch-making play was first produced hundreds of thousands of persons have been moved from laugh ter to tears and to sheer joy in fol lowing the fortunes of the wistful girl from which comes the title 'Polly of the Circus," and her min-* isterial admirer. The reproduction of a mammoth circus in full swing in the third act is the greatest piece of stage realism yet achieved, an< will be seen here identically as wit nuessed during its season long rur .at the Liberty Theatre, New Yorl City. The company presenting this play is by alR odds the most competent acting organization sent on tour this season, an:d the local engagement o: ''Polly of the Circus" is certain t< prove the real event of the season.

The Rev. W. L. Seabrook, who for five years faithfully and ably served the Lutheran Church of the Re deemer, this city, and who, since he he left Newberry two years ago has been one of the editors of the Amer ican Sentinel, at Westminster, Md., and also pastor of Trinity Lutheran church, near Westminster, has ae cepted the position of deputy clerk of the circuit court of Carroll coun ty, in which West-minister is located, and assumed the discharge of his duties on Wednesday. The members of the bar of Car roll county and the people of the county universally, without respect to party, strongly urged him to take the position which was offered him, and because -of the way in which it was presented him, Mr. Seabrook feilt that he could not decline. The deputy clerk in Marylaud is what the clerk of the circuit court is in Newberry. The cheif deputy, the position filled by Mr. Seabrook, has charge of the dockets and the sow work. Three other deputies do the recording and indexing. The term is for six years. It is a good . posi tion1financially and the hours are short, except during court terms. Mr. Seabrook practiced law at Westminster beforg entering the ministry, and for four years was deputy attorney general of tihe State; so that the acceptance of his new position is in a sense going back to the old life and surroundings. Mr. Seabrook has resigned his ed itorship, but will continue to serve Trinity church as its pastor, and ev ery member of the church is enthus iastic about his new move. The re lief from his editorial duties atd the short hours which will be re quired by the new position will give Mr. Seabrook a greait deal more time to devote to his pastoral duties. He is a consecrated minister, and with him, his church is always first. Mr. Seabrook's many warm friand in Newberry and throughOut this State will be delighted to learn Of the offer to him and the aceeptance by him of the responsible positiorn the duties of which he has assumed and especially in view of the marme2 in which it eame to him. The offei of the position was. izn nowise plit ial, but was personal, and as suck it was accepted by Mr. Seabrook. The City Clock. Mr. Editor: -For some time pasi the city elock has been running 6 minutes ahead of standard time. A few days ago we asked the streei overseer, Mr. J. Monroe Wicker why he did not set the clock to cor ret time. You would be surpiised to know the reason he gave; and yor would wondeN if the clock was pal up for the sole benefit of the streci ovrseer andl his fcarce or for -the towr at 'large. We will give these reasons ni the next issue of this paper if the clock is not adjusted by that time so that the citizens of the town ma3 pass judgment on these reasons fo3 themselves., We believe the people want thi correct time ore else they would no have purchased the clock but woulc have been satisfied with Davis' whis tie, the Newberry -Mill bell, Johi Neel's farm bell, or any other ol time. As it is now all is confusion some 'have standard time, some havy Monroe Wicker time, some have devil of a time ;md the rest of ni have no time at all. T. E.W. Headquarters for Santla Claus.
