Mr ■■ About Plays and Players RUTH GREY. Ruth Grey, who in thought by many of Nashville's good people to deserve the title of "The Woman Wonderfull," has decided to lengthen her stay in the city two weeks instead of one, as at first contemplated, and the psychic phenomenon will be seen every night next week at the Auditorium, with a special ladies' matinee next Wednes day afternoon. Her week will be bro ken Into tonight by the reecital of Madam Ellen Beach Yaw. Thursday afternoon she gave a marvelous exhi bition of her psychic powers to what was undoubtedly the most amusing audience that ever assembled in the Ryman Auditorium. There was a good ly number of the "stronger sex" out to learn that which has been hidden from them by a wise providence, and little did they reckon that a mere man was hidden away behind tier on tier of benches. A representative of the American was securely hidden, however, and the mere man saw that which he saw. Be fore Miss Grey came out he laughed, and afterwards—he marvelled. The women assembled, and of oil the rest less, well-dressed crowds one ever saw, one took the premium. The ladies would seat themselves, then they would hie themselves to another part of the building, then they would stand up, then they would sit on the backs of the benches, then they would giggle, and then Mr. Marks would come out with a bunch of question cards to dis tribute and the resulting scrimmage i s 5 ; ® I / Ruth Grey, "The Woman Wonder ful," at the Auditon.um all next week. -P — m mmkmiw <• y f THE ONLY AOThORtZED ■ ' IlSl mm vlH > IQ a tr> ■ ■ ■' T* ■r.

He has unqualifiedly endorsed "The Devil," which is now drawing enormous crowds to the Garden Theatre, New York City, and which is to be seen here, "I have seen the play twice," writes Mr. Dale, "and I am going again." Several million other people agree with Mr. Dale which should be flatter ing to this eminent dramatic critic, for the entire civilized world Is regard ing "The Devil" as an epoch making drama, Nearly every capitol of Europe has "The Devil" on its boards, and already in this country. New York, Philadelhpia, Boston, Pittsburg and Chicago have witnessed and applauded the play. For the very excellent reason that the company now playing at the Gar BIOGRAPHICAL CALENDAR. , One hundred and thirty-four years ago today there was born In Boston one of the most novel figures In American history—Johnny Chapman, best known as Johnny Appleseed, per. haps the most benevolent hobo and tramp the world has ever known. The anniversary of his borth Is lovingly remembered by fruit growers, nursery men and pomologists throughout the country, and especially in the Central West, where during hig lifetime John ny Appleseed planted over 100,000 acres of orchards. About a decade ago a monument to his memory was erected' in Mansfield,O., and a promln ent New York clergyman has written a novel of which Johnny is the hero. He died in 1847, but the location of his grave is unknown, except that it is somewhere in the woods he loved so well. In Ohio and Indiana they have many a tradition of the barefoot man who for thirty years moved among them with a tin dipper for a hat and a coffee sack for coat and trousers, a leather bag over his shoulder brim ming with apple seeds. They tell how he planted nurseries here and there along the river banks, came back when the trees were grown, and either gave them away or sold them for a "flp-penny-bit" apiece, and how he died a martyr to his strange business, af ter seeing 100,000 acres bearing the fruits of it. They tell how, \yith the Massachu setts spirit, he played Paul Revere for the frontiersmen in the war of 1812 md saved them from Indian massa cre. walking through the woods from etanty to shanty night and day with food or rest, giving his warning. There are stories of how he scattered •hr seeds of medicinal plants as he pns,'-ed through the forests, how he preached his Swedenborglan doctrine to the settlor. rh. .. i , . - . den Theatre, New York City, will prob ably still be there In the fall of 1903.

Secretary Wilson says: "One of the objects of the law is to inform the con sumer of the presence of certain harm ful drugs in medicines." The law re quires that the amount of chloroform, opium, morphine, and other habit forming drugs be stated on the label of each bottle. The manufacturers of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy have always claimed that their remedy did not contain any of these drugs, and the truth of this claim is now fully proven, aB no mention of them is made on the label. This remedy Is not only one of the safest, but one of the best In use for coughs and colds. Its value has been proven beyond ques tion during the many years it has been tures. Johnny Appleseed was born in Bos ton in 1775, and although there Is considerable uncertainty in the rec ords, it has been agreed that January 15 is to be observed as the exact day of his birth. As a boy he was a lover of nature, a wanderer in the fields, a student of bird and plant life and a sentimental observer of the stars. Among the many romances which cluster about bis life Is one of an early love in Boston, with a sad ending tfiat made him a baohelor and a wanderer. The first trace found of him in history records him as being in the territory of Ohio in 1801 with a bro ken down old horse on whose back were loaded bags of apple seed, which he planted on the borders of Licking creek. The first orchard thus origi nated by him is now within the bord ers of Licking county. He never forgot ^here he had planted. When the trees were partly grown he returned, pruned them and disposed of them to the farmers for transplanting, or in some cases tor an entire orchard on tbe spot he had originally chosen. If the customer was poor he could have the trees for nothing; if he had no cash Johnny would take any old piece of clothing; if he wanted to pay the price was a "flp-penny-bit" for each tree and im mediate payment was not required. Johnny usually took a note to be paid at an indefinite date, and history records no instance of his having tried to collect such notes, as he seemed to regard that when the note was written the transaction was closed forever. His money he gave to the spent for books or for the purchase of aged horses. Usually he had a considerable drove of old horses In his care, many of them bought from poor, or MERCHANTS RATES _ 00 INTO EFFECT Hearst News Service. New York, Jan.
