This splendidly constructed and in. tensely interesting drama by Charles Klein established the record for long runs among serious plays of the past season, remaining at Matine Elliott's Theatre, New York, for over 200 con. secutive performances.

Charles Klein, who has given us "The Music Master," "The Lion and the Mouse," "The Third Degree" and other successful plays, has written a powerful message into his late great success. "The Gamblers," which comes to the Dauphine next week. We now look to this American author for pul sating dramatic demonstrations of vi tal American problems of the day. In his latest work he has taken for a psychological theme the gambling in stinct, which he localises in Wall street and develops with dramatic in tensity. Mr. Klein's skill is by n, means least in the human interest he gives to his plays, and this hfer sen timent is not neglected in t1s play.

ARNOLD COLE Copyright by American Press Asso clation. 1911. Formerly railroad cars passing through tunnels were not lighted as they are now. A number of episodes have been recorded of affectionate action in these dark holes in the ground, and kisses have been surrep titiously taken. Leonard Starkweatber, a young man of some twenty-one years and proportionately inexperienced. took one of these kisses, and it led to no end of worry on his part. He finally paid the penalt) He was traveling with Miss Owen dolin Stewart, a young lady two years his Junior. Miss Stewart had one of those complexions which can only be compared to a ripe peach of a light shade, a pale rose on Ivory. Her lips were of that same shade of pink and quite tempting enough to cause any man to wreck himself to touch them with his own. StarkLeather bad been introduced to heb by a mutual friend before the train started, and she had been put under his care. This ren dered his act all the more dishonor able. The better to cover his tracks the kiss was stolen with malice afore thought. He told the young lady Just before the train entered the long tun nel, the location of which he well knew. that be was going into the smoking car for a whiff at a cigar. In stead of doing so he went into the next car back, where he remained till the train shot under the hill. The young lady sat on the right of the car, the eighth seat from the rear. This he had carefully noted. Putting his hand on the back of every seat till he reached the eighth, he felt carefully till be had noted Miss Stewart's position, then quietly bent down and took the kiss. A muffled cry was beard above the rattle of the train, but when the car shot out into the light there was no evidence of anything wrong. Stark weather had made good his escape. and Miss Stewart was apparently en deavorlng to regain her equanl. iry by fumbling with her handkerchiel, which she was examining as though she had bought it at a bargain counter and doubted if she had not been sold as well as the linen. Half an hour par ~ed--qute enough to enable her to quiet down after the episode-when Mr. Starkweather re turned to his seat beside her. bringing with him the odor of tobacco smoke. He was a trifle nervous, but felt re lieved to find Miss Stewart quite com posed. He expectdd that she would tell him of the outrage that had been inflicted upon her and ask him to take measures to discover the perpetrator. He was surprised that she didn't men tlon the matter and considered her re fraining from doing so due to maid enly modesty. But Miss 8tewart's treatment of her escort was somewhat different from what it had been. An innocent free dom was replaced by a slight reserve. The ingenuousness, the confidence call it what you will-of girlhood seemed to have departed from her. Occasionally Starkweatber caught her looking up at him sidewise with an expression that be could not fathom. He began to be troubled lest bshe had known or' at least divined that he was the man who had insulted her. But how could she have got any ink ling of this? When he kissed her not a ray of light had penetrated the car He had felt no toUch. His face was smoothly shaven, so that no pointer could hrve been obtained from the character of a beard. No; it was sim ply impossible that she should have any evidence of having been kissed by him This being the case, why should she have witbdrawn that outspoken comodence with which she had treated him? And yet ft was not a torming against him: It was rather like that conditlon which comes between friends of direrent sexes when the man lets go friendfip to grasp at love. starkweather looked upon a young girl something too holy to be pro faned. This is a cbharacteristie of youth, and another is a great sensi tivenem to woman's treatment Bls theft was to him like that of the Spartan boy who atole the wolf-not crminaal so long as not oound out. The boy had the wolft nader his coet and let it gnaw the fesh away rather than that tt should be disceovened. Stark weather bega to believe that Miss Stewart knew bhe had kissed her.

FIELD'S GREATER MIN STRELS NEXT WEEK. The coming week. beginning Sunday night, at the popular Cres·ent Theatre will see Al G. Fields' Greater Minstrels once more holding the boards at that ilayhouse on their twenty-sixth an nual engagement. Of all the black face comedies on the road, none has such a determined hold on public favor in the South. and especially in New Orleans, as has this old standby. For the present season, Mr. Field has a brand new production to offer his pub lie, and not only is the produt.ion new from a physical and mechanical stand point. but the songs, dances and sketches are all new. And then there are some new faces in the company. but here the best of the old favorites have been retained, among them being Doc Quigley, he of the comedy legs. This season Quigley has a new sketch that is said to be uproariously funny, and those who remember his old-time farces will get a great laugh out of the present one. John Ilealy is also with the company again, and it is safe to say he has lost none of his popularity. One of the features this season with the Field Minstrels is the baseball sketch, a black-face comedy in which all the company take part and which is (-laimed to be one of the funniest pre sentations ever seen in a minstrel show. The usual Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday matinees will be given. AL G. FIELDS-CRESCENT SOON. One of the big musical comedy at tractions scheduled for the Crescent Theatre will follow the Field Min strels. It is entitled "The Winning Widow,' 'and proves a winner itself from the very start. The cast is made up of well-known comedians, singers and dancers, added to a beauty chorus of two score pretty girls. The musical numbers filter through the piece in rapid succession, among the decidedly catchy ones being, "The Light That Lies in Woman's Eyes," and "What Would We Do Without the Moon?" Miss Henrietta Wheeler has a clever talk-a-log and sing-a-log on woman suffrage, which is said to be a terrific scream. A Glimpse. Bismarok. Lord Goechen was once asked to dinner by the German chancellor and described the occasion in his memoirs: "Bismarck made an excellent dinner, but not so good as I expected. The sh course consisted of lampreys, and Rismarck said that he had once, to his shame, eaten eighty-one at a sitting. Lord Odo, remembering the fate of a British king, asked if he had no rea son to regret the feat 'Yes.' he said, 'I did regret it. I have often regret ted what I have eaten, but never what I have draunk.' 'But have you not been the worse for it? 'I did not say I had not been the worse for my pota tions. I said I had never regretted them.' He spoke in slow but good English and said a number of quaint and good things. Here is a very char acteristic specimen: 'I rather envy you Engish statesmen the excitement of the house of commons. You have the pleasure of being able to call a man a damned Infernal scoundrel Now, I can't do that In diplomacy.'" Histry of Smallpex. That terrible disease, smallpox, ap pears to have been first described by Rhases, an Arablan physician who liv ed about the year 900, but tibre is no reason to doubt that it has.existed nla the east from the remotest times. So far as weo know, It neverorliginated spontaneously, bat is always produced by contact-mediate or immediate with a person already affected by It, It appears to have been introduced in Europe in the times of the crusades and spread slowly into the more north ern regions. In 1733 it appeared in Ieeland, where it was so fatal that the coantry was aJmost depopulated by it From Spain it was carried to Mexico, where it is said to have destroyed 2,000,000 or 3.000,000 people. It spread rapidly adf over the new world, and whbole villages and tribes of Indians were carried off by it. Nethlngl but Predt. "We profit by our mistakes." "Do you believe that? 'I certanly do."
