When Thanksgiving day draws neat' all hearts are filled with joy and glad ness, and every one plans to celebrate this national feast in a most fitting manner. Algiers may easily take the lead among the many celebrations that took place at this time, for on Wednesday last the Convent of the Holy Name of .Mary was the scene of lively jollifica tion and grandeur. The hall was artistically decorated with red and green garlands, and my riads of light transformed the whole into a scene of splendor and bright ness. The tables were spread in the hall, and everything was typical of Thanksgiving Day. The menu con sisted of all sorts of salads. vegetabl.es and meats, turkey being the special dish; fruits, nuts and everything you would find at a Thanksgiving feast. Hils Grace. Archbishop Blenk. was the guest of honor, and the Jefferson College football team. under the direc tion of Father Smith, president, and Father Ott, their director, were also present. His Grace occupied a seat at a table with Father Larkin, the be loved pastor; his assistants, Fathers Cassagne and Delaire; Father Jean mard, secretary to His Grace, and sev eral other persons, who were given special invitations. All day the ladies were at the con vent preparing the repast, which was served in a faultless manner. The ta bles were all filled, and, in addition to many who came to the convent, fami lies unable to attend sent baskets or ordered the suppers sent to their homes. The Jefferson boys were on their way to Springhill to play football on Thanksgiving Day. and Father Lat'kin, their very good friend, requested them to have supper in Algiers. They did not regret accepting the invitation, as they had a splendid time and it helped to increase their enthusiasm, which was greatly aroused. After the supper, five hundred and euchre were played. The prizes were very beautiful and the games were very enjoyable. On Thanksgiving Day the children held their annual party at the convent. Games were played, and the elocution class of the school rendered a very en tertaining program. Motion pictures were shown and the children enjoyed the evening to its fullest extent. The proceeds of the party -will aid to pay on the recent improvements made on the convent, and the Sitsers feel very gratified by the success of the af fair. The ladies who so kindly helped are to be congratulated on the splendid manner in which everything was con ducted, and all present enjoyed a most delightful time. 8EGUIN EUCHRE CLUB.

Alcott's much loved story which held New York playgoers in its grip all last season, will be presented by William A. Brady at the Tulane Theatre Monday night and every after noon and night of the coming week. Since the first announcement of the coming of this play much interest has been shown and already many mail orders have been received front sur rounding towns. The seats are in de mand and it is now an assured fact that crowded houses will be the rule at all performances. \Mr. Brady promises that the br-eezi ness and charm of the familiar story have been faithfully maintained. He has been most careful in his selection of "types" to impersonate Mleg. Beth, Jo, Amy, Laurie. Mr. and Mrs. March. the Professor, old Hannah, Aunt March, and all the others over whose joys and struggles so many millions of readers have laughed and wept. Much attention has also been given to a faithful staging of scenes which are so well described in the book. Many of the identical costumes and properties used by the March girls in their home plays will be used in this production. As is well known, the character of Jo is Miss Alcott herself, while Mleg, Beth and Amy are her sisters. Anna, Eliza beth, and May. It was from John Al cott. Miss Alcott's favorite nephew. that MIr. Brady secured many of the articles used throughout the play. Incidentally. Mr. Ahlcott paid the dra: matist, Miss de Forest, a very pretty compliment. After reading the dra matization, he remarked: "If Aunt Iou isa were alive today, I believe that is just the way she would have written it herself." A FAMOUS DETECTIVE PLAY COM ING TO THE TULANE. Robert Hilliard, who prides himself upon keeping "The Argyle Case" strictly up to the minute, introduces a scientific novelty in the third and fourth acts, which have been greatly revised since the popular detective play had its first presentation. It is the new device of K. MI. Turner, inventor of the dictograph, and shows the public for the first time how that cunning little eavesdropper can repro duce as well as record the human voice. In the counterfeiting scene the operatives hidden in the garret next door will be seen recording the voices on the roneophone as they are carried over the wire. Klaw & Erlanger has arranged to bring "The Argyle Case" to the Tu 'A ~:5 I ';'ýý~~~.. •ý..' ý ýf :i . . .. `" E LEN N " L O ii·: : -"::.f'- ° ELSIE ST.

This wholesome romantic comedy has been pronounced by reviewers in practically every city of the United States to be in every way deserving of its extraordi nary popularity. It has remarkable heart interest, the tale of the parson and the circus esquestrienne being beautiful. From the opening, where the audience is amused by the narrow minded villagers who are surreptitious ly etriving to catch glimpses of the circus on the grounds adjoining the parsonage, interest is eager. The en trance of the injured equestrienne, borne tenderly in the arms of the young minister, never fails to bring tears among many in the audience. Mis St. Leon's portrayal of the title role has been widely declared the best and her management has surrounded her with a capable supporting company and an admirable production. Al- I though "'olly of the ('ircus" is rated somlew hat old in the matter of sea sons, its no'elty has not staled. It en joys as strong a grip on the country as it did when first it set out on its wear ing travels. Several transcontinental tours have not impaired the drawing qualities of thie romantic comedy and 't'veral mlore seasons a\ill pass before the attraction goes into the storehouse. Even then, it will be a play that can he revived with abundant assurance of rich success. This season the cir cus features have been strengthened and the production freshened. The management honestly strives to main tain the standard of the original pro duction. "THE TRAIL OF THE LONESOME PINE." "The Trail of the Lonesome Pine," Eugene Walter's splendid dramatiza tion of John Fox, Jr.'s, popular novel of the same name, is one of the most convincing American plays ever stag ed.
