He has been connected with the stage for thirty years and has taught many actors, perhaps more than any other man living today. For twenty years Mr. Greet has been prominent in England for performances In which his splendid companies bive acted each year in London, Cambridge, Stratford on Avon and other places in "Shakespeare's England." r 1 Mr. Greet became well known in America several years ago through his presentation of the morality play "Every man" under the management of Charles Frohman. This was the first time a play was presented in America by a professional company in the Elizabethan manner. This was later followed by a production of Shakespearean plays and classical comedlts.

Handsome Donation Dr. Perry our leading druggist, gave a benefit sale to the P. A. C. Infirmary on 21st and realized the handsome sum of $50.00 for this institution.

As the Court of Appeals refuses to take jurisdiction of questions relating to the primary law and as that law practically provides that fusion can not be made, it will be interesting to see how they can fuse and run on one ticket.

Fellow-Citizens of Richmond Owing to a severe illness of several days duration and which, from present indications, will be prolonged for many days more, I have been and will be unable to discharge my duties as policeman of your city. I am, as you aware, also a candidate for Chief ; of Police of the city of Richmond, at the Democratic primary, Aug ust 2. - Now, you can readily see I am greatly handicapped and will be unable to make an active cam paign for said office. When I entered the race for Chief of Po lice and up to some ten days ago, I was in fine fettle, and the hearty support accorded me by the voters has been most gratify ing. While the unseen hand of Fate has taken a thrust at me, yet I take this method of inform ing my friends that I am in this race until the finish and hope to win. I trust that my friends, who in the past have tendered me their loyal support and influ encewill continue their activities in my behalf from now until the polls close on election day. It will be impossible for me to give my race the personal attention I had hoped, for at least several days to come, owing to my illness; therefore I am necessarily forced to take this method of appealing to the loyalty of my numerous friends and ask them to make every honest endeavor to keep up the splendid interest . already engendered in my candidacy for Chief of Police. I doubly assure you from the depths of my heart, my fellow citizens, that any support given me in furtherance of my race will be most highly appreciated, and I will hold you, each and all, in grateful remembrance as my sincere friends. Thanking you for past favors, and again assur ing every -one of my high appre ciation of any kindness and courtesy shown me in the future, I beg to remain, Yours respectfully, Jesse Dykes. -oo- Big Fire Loss At Mr. William Luxon's home near this city, a , large barn in which were nine valuable horses, was struck by lightning, killing one horse and firing the barn.
