The Metropolitan Store of New Haven. "Under Southern Skies." The most interesting and impressive Play of life in the southland extant to-dav is undoubtedly Lottie Blair Parker's nlav. "Under Southern Skies. This play has been firmly established In popular favor during the six years that It has toured the country and the popularity of Its first visits seem to increase as the years pass by. Mrs. PiVker has wisely retained from any reference to the civil war, although the period in which the play is laid closely followed the days of reconstruction. Furthermore,, there Is not a northern er, moonshiner, or In fact any o the claptrap characters that are generally Introduced into southern plays as a bid for applause. Mrs. Parker tells a story of southern home life showing I various characters that are familiar to Louisiana, the locality of the scenes of the play, and who, therefor, fit nat urally into the grooves assigned them. Mrs. Parker achieved much fame as a playwright with "Way Down East," but in 'Under Southern Skies" she has surpassed her former effort. For in genuity, strength and brilliancy, "Un der Southern Skies" Is a marvel of stage craft done by a master hand In stage adroitness. The characters are finely drawn, the dialogue Is crisp and understandable, the human interest Is absorbing, the comedy charming, and the pathos Is sincere. "Under Southern Skies" will be shown here on Thurs day, Friday ar-d Saturday nights of this week at the New Haven theater with matinee Saturday. Take it for what it's worth. He probably knows what he's talking about; at least we think he does, and agree with him in what he says. JOHNSON & BRO. t 411413 State Street Corner Court Street.

The Jewell Controller with Time Clock attachment !s the only device that automatically provides for a higher temperature in the morning without losing thermostatic control through the night. . For example: Suppose you want to reduce the temperature of the house to 60 degrees during the night, but would like to have it at 70 degrees by the time the family arises. Before retiring, you set back the controller to 60 degrees. Then you set the time clock attachment to bring the tem perature up to 70 at seven o'clock. In spite of any sudden changes out-doors during the night, the Controller will maintain the temperature you wish, and the faithful clock will open the drafts in time to give you the desired warmth in the morning. And then all day the Controller goes right on keeping your house warmed " just right." It is adapted for use with steam, hot water or hot air. Why not unload your heating worries on the "Jewell" !and save money too i Investigate this wonderful device. THE BUcklNGHAM-ROUTH COMPANY, 151 Court Street.
