At the Old Cross Roads.
"At the Old Cross Roads." whicl
e was given in the Grand last evening
a was a fair production given to a fnir
^ sized audience. The negro interpre
e tat ions were good, and the parts taken
? by James M. Brophy. W. Bpurke Sul
iivan and Thos. H. Ince, Were all very
well taken. What scenery used
was very pretty, and the music
rendered, by the orchestra was so
good that taken all in all, the audience
felt amply repaid for coming. Generous
applause at frequent intervals
greeied the players, and the play was
followed very closely with unflagging
interest to the end.
An Old Cry.
"Everything now hut the title" has
become a hackneyed phrase in the
theatrical business, but never was it
used with so much truth and to such
great advantage as in the announcement
of Frank Adams' Uncle Hez
Co.. this season.
Mr. Adams has entirely rewritten
the play and in doing so has so greatly
improved it that Uncle Hez's
friends will scarcely recognize him.
Instead of appearing as an inland
farmer, Uncle Hez is now a jolly- old
sea captain, full of life.-and eccentricities,
and ever ready- to meet anyemergency.
Critics have pronounced
M r A tltimo Qt Vitc liact in tViie rolo
The other characters in the play
have been written up to a standard
of excellence never before attempted
by this class of attraction, and the
comedy scenes are deliclously funny.
The scenic equipment this year is
splendid, comprising four now and
excellent settings as follows: Act I,
Bug Harbor, Me., exterior of Uncle
Hez Cottage and showing an admirable
marine view. Act II, interior of
elaborate drawing room, done in rich
colors and providing for a multitude
of trick pantomimical effects. Act III,
the Great Transportation scene, from
deck of the "Emma Jane" to a tropical
island.
The success of former years has
constrained Mr. Adams to introduce
more pantomime and trick effects
than ever before, and our theatre
patrons may visit the Grand Opera
House with the expectation of enjoying
an evening of laughter inter-"
mingled with good music and beautiful
scenery. Uncle Hez visits us
Wednesday. October 12. Prices 50,
35 and 25 cents. Box seats, 75 cents.

! John W. Voget's Big City Minstrels.
Oil Saturday, October 15, John W.
Vcgel's' Big City Minstrels will be
seen at the Grand Opera House,
matinee and night. The company is
liall" a hundred . strong and boasts of
a roster second to none. Manager
Vogel's reputation for being a standard
-bearer is enough to satisfy us
that the performance will be in keeping:
with the herald inir. Mflrrolnuc
Marseilles," who has been engaged
ai an .enorigous salary, for (his tour
only, is ^said to be one of the most
sensational novelties of the century,
and one of the features of the performance.

Paul Gilmore.
The old title of "The Mummy and <
the Summing Bird," in which play t
Paul Gilmore started last season with (
enormous success, and in which he is
again appearing this season with the I
same result, seems' to he no liandi- t
cap to the drawing qualities of the \
play, but rather arouses a curiosity v
tc$ se'e it. Local theatre-goers will li
soon have their last chance to. wit- s

THE LADIES
AUXILIARY
OF THE LOCAL Y. M. C. A. HELD
A VERY INTERESTING MEETING
YESTERDAY AFTERNOON.
The Ladies' Auxiliary of the Y. M.
C. A. held its first meeting of the
season yesterday * afternoon. Mrs.
DeBoit presided over the meeting.
an<l in the absence of Mrs. Lehman,
Mrs. Sallic N'uzum acted as secretary.
Mrs. Hantaan was also absent but
her report was read and showed
clearly the need for replenishing the
treasury. This brought the subject of
the Star Lecture Course up. and an
interesting and lengthy discussion, of
the project was held. There were
quite a number of ladies in attendance
and all of them evinced enthusiasm
on the; subject. Mrs. DeBolt
hart the "work in charge are satisfied
short talks on the merits of the different
attractions booked in the selected
course. The great majority
of our people, however, know the
merit of these attractions already and it
is not necessary to quote what
these people said of them. Suffice to
say a great deal of thought was given
Toward the selection and those who
had the work in charge arc satisfied
they could do no better and we feel
assured the public will ratify, jhis
decision when tl^ey read the announcement
which follows this prologue.
Under different circumstances
$1,000 would scarcely cover the cost
of bringing this talented host into
our city: as it is the expenses are
large and our people must show
their appreciation and good judgment
in order to enable the organization
to come out ahead in the transition.
The price for season tickets
'or five entertainments is only $1.50.
That makes- an average of thirty
:ents for each concert band or teaurn,
any one of which we would oriinarily
pay S1.00 or $1.50 to hear. i
