Active preliminary preparations at
Palmetto Park, the continued arrival

large strings of race horses now in
quarters at the track, and the expected
arrivals of more horses in the next

Whether there is any real hope
on the part of the promoters that the
legislature may take such favorable
, action as would allow them to go
ahead with the meet under the law is
not known; nor is there anything
more definite than the gossip of the
streets to suggest the methods of procedure

that there will be racing; as to the

has been stated that there are more
horses here this season than last, th-e
number now being something over
six hundred. The only big stable here

uThe Trail of the Lonesome rine."
It is to be inferred i 'he majority!
; of Newberry book-reader^ followed the
! wanderings and low story of the prim1
itive* mountain girl, June, in .John Fox, i
.Ir.'s delightful story, "The Trail of ?
the Lonesome Pine," which will be fi
i * i 1
j seen at tne opera nous? ucAt .?uuUa; j
j night. j
j Few stories, even though they be i
j part fiction and part truth, have been ;
j written with the compelling heart-in- j
terest that the author of this thrilling |
story of the Virginia hills, has' sustained
in every page of his narrative.
Therefore, it was with some trepidation
that Eugene Walter, brilliant
dramatist though he is, approached
the task set for him, to bring out of
the book a stage June, that would ap- I
peal as strongly to theatre-goers' as I
hook June aDnealed to readers.
That Mr. Walter has accomplished
! his task is evidenced alreadv bv the
| approbation of the producers of the
j play, as well as the public and'authi
or. Mr. Walter has taken a rough, un- j
j educated, enormously superstitious'
! and imaginative mountain girl, and
| made her a delightful creature. He!
has brought out all the possibilities i
of the June of the book, catching the,
significance of Mr. Fox's cleancut |
a rasterization and the exquisite '
i poetry and drama of his dominating j
love theme. i
The play contains no problem, no j
I question of sex dominance, but is ab- j
solute in the purituy of its sentiment,!
the uplift of its moral, the poetry of j
! its romance. A genuine man takes an
interest in a simple girl. He anticipates
her wish to be sent into the
I world to be educated ana in ms sicaui
I goodness arouses in the heart of the j
j girl something greater than mere affecition;
an over-mastering love. In fact,
1 June expects all along that Hale will
I marry her, and when she expresses the
i great love she bears him and he tells
her he can not think of marriage, poor
little June imagines she isn't good
enough, for him, and pitifully disillu- j
sioned, she sends- for her father to j
