THEATRICAL Tho attraction at the Grand on Wed nesday evening will be the laughable success, "Side Tracked," presented by a capable company and adequately staged. Tho play is a comedy dratna bordering on the farce, chock full of fun, and bristling with just enough sensation to balance the mirth effects. The principal character is a tramp. Tho tramp has done a great deal to bring out the humor of many plays of late, but it Is rarely that he acts both as comedian and hero. Mr. George Fredo, who assumes tho part of tho tramp, is a capital actor and a clover singer and dancer. He is ably assisted by a strong codipany. X t t The original production of "Quo Vadis," with its wealth of special scene ry, will soon be presented for the finst time in Freeland. The play is in six acts and eight tableaux. It tells the story of a young Roman soldier who falls in love with a Christian maiden, of tho persecution of tho maiden by Em peror Nero, and of her ultimate triumph through her belief in Christianity. t t t Those who failed to see "A Hot Old Time" on Friday evening missed the best farce comedy given here this sea son. The company received applause from the time the curtain rose until it dropped at the end of tho third act. Taxes Not Yet Paid.
