" POLLJY OF THE CIRCUS."
Attractive Play to Be Presenited in
* Newberry Opera House. on,
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
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.

Mamie E. Schumpert,
THE EV. W. L. SEABOOK.
He Accepts Highly Responsible Po
sition in His Home County of
Carroll, in Maryland.
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
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.
Headquarters for Santla Claus.
Mr. John Mayes begs to annoynes
the arrival of Santa Claus at hi
store to-morrow, and he extends
hearty invitation to alli the, youn;
folks and their parents to mee
Santa there and tender him a warn
welome to the city. Santa is a jo
vial old fellow and believes in giv
ing the young folks a good time.H
brings with him all of 'the beautifu
things th'at strike joy to the heart
of the little folks, and it would b
time well spent to take a peep it
the toy-crowded store of Mr. Maye
and behold there the varied assort
ment of beautiful toys.
