SPLENDID PLAY AT OPERA HOUSE Irene Daniels And a Sterling Com pany Will- Present Remarkable Production Here. In offering the "Common Law," Montgomery E. Brewster presents Irene Daniel and a sterling company, in the greatest story ever staged. Not only is the story a remarkable one, but there are several things connected with the company and the play that have nerer been before pre sented. tflrst, though the theme is new and for the first tima used as the base of a play, the sul ject itself is recorded nvpr two thousand years before Christ. See ud, m bringing iogeth er the players for the east, it is the first time that each actor and actress are all of the type class. Third, the play is without precedent, in consi tency,..for every word and action im perfectly, natural, and you have read about such characters m the daily papers. Fourth, the play is original in its plot, construction and concep tion. As the name applies, one might er- ncft to see a woman have abuse heaped upon her after she had lived a "Common Law" life with a man but such is not the case in the pro duction. Instead, you will see young-woman trying to extricate her- sefl frcm the circumstances that have been forced into her life, where she sees her brothergo to prison, and her family disgraced, or live a com mon law life, which would be a thou sand times worse than death. Words are inadequate to describe the moral interest which manifests itself in each who sees the "Common Law," and after seeing it you feel less sel- . . fish and be more content with your lot. Mr. Brewster guarantees the same cast and production as will play at the Walnut Street Theatre. Louis ville, the week of January 21. Winchester Opera House, one night Wednesday, January 17.

Due to Seriously I Severely Baltimore, Md., Jan. 17 shocked by a fall to the floor of the altar at St. Vincent's Catholic church Caidinnl Gibbons displayed striking nerve Tuesday morning when he iu sisted on performing his part of the ceremony attending the last rites ov er the body of Rev. Desire C. Dewulf. Immediately after the mass had been concluded the Cardinal arose from his seat under a canopy to don extra vestments before blessing the body of the dead priest. While the robes were being placed on his shoulders one of the priests took the chair from under the canopy and passed it to an altar boy, telling him to put it in the aisle between the body and the altar. There was a chair in the aisle already. After putting on the vestments the Cardi nal, who had not seen the removal of the chair, started to sit diwn again. He fell to the floor. Exclamation of suppressed alarm broke from those on the altar, and some in the front pews, who had witnessed the accident, and a rush was made to the side of the fallen prelate.

"We, the jury, find the defendant Peter iPaul Apkins, guilty as charged in the in 'dictment." was" tlie- verdict'-'ret'urried In tbe Fayette Circuit Court Tues- day i ibrning signed by FrediLnzaiu.- aS1 i'r reman- - , . It took the jury less than ten min utes to come to. an agreement and when the verdict was read by Deputy CSrcirt Clcik Thomas, ID'Day, Vhc defendant maintained his 'accustom ed ci ilness and stoically sat unmov ed ai d apparently unaffected as the words were read that fixed his guilt, the punishment for which is from three to nine years in the peniten tiary. Ai.iha Hubbard, attorney for "Ap kins made an able defense for his elicuf, but the facts necessary to es tablish the guilt of the defendant were matters largely of record in the com ts here and in Paris, 111., making the trial of the case short and con clusive. Apkins is under indictment in the Jcs.-amino Circuit Court, charged wifh the murder of his wife, former ly Elizabeth Young, and was served by Deputy Sheriff Wilson with a benah warrant, being committed to jail and will later be turned over to the Jessamine authorities. . r Fails to Tangle His Story, And Does Not Ruffle His Temper, For He Maintained His Composure. Washington, Jan. 17. A day's cross-examination of Senator Lori mer before the Senate Inveoigaticg Committee failed to develop any sen sation. Evidently it had not tangled his storv and certainly it did not ruflle his temper, for he maintained his composure throughout. ' Most of the cross-examination wa directed to Lorimer's recital of polit ical conditions in Illinois when the legislature was electing a Senator in 1909, the personal associations of Democrats with Republican and the subsequent resasons why he believed the Democrats voted for him. When Loryner got to talking politics, he eqined a few epigrams. "The direct primary in every A API northern state destroys the cohesivc ness of the majority of the party," was one of them. Others were: "I never go around t tying to piek quarrels with people opposed to me. I usually go and do something to off set what they are trying to do." "When I have anything to do. I have a habit of getting up in the morning and doing it." Counsel for the committee got in to the record the fact that after 101 votes had been cast in the legislature on the day Loiimcr was elected, sev en Republican Senators, who had not voted for Lorimer, changed their votes in his favor, making 108, which elected him. Regarding the opposition to Gov ernor Deneen, Lorimer declared there were men in the legis lature in 1909 who would have been willing to elect Deneen Senator, if only to get him out of the Governor's chair. When the committee's lawyers tried to get him to repeat a conver sation, he usually declined to do so saying he could not remember more than the substance. "I'm not going to testify to any thing I don't know," was his fre quent reply. MAKES SALE Deal Consummated Whereby 1,600,- 000 Pounds of Tcbacco Are Dis posed of to Mr. T. H. Kirk.
