Many lovers of the theater last night renewed an intimate acquaintance vktfa the masterpiece an acquaint ance that is more dear especially to those who have seen Joseph Jefferson in . the title, role. The same game of h i ten pins was being played and the 3 same thunder rolling all was the :; jsame, and Mr. Jefferson acted with Shis customary strength and ease. The I "same wit was in evidence and just as agreable ,as ever, and provoked spon taneous laughter and applause. The Btory of the play is well known, Kn a 1 tit A T'a kaa ia ranaa fin or A rfr T jThft Village of Falling Water. Rip fjVaft Winkle is a Jolly good soul; rath ; jjer too fond of wishing every one a jlong life and a prosperous one. This is I swhtit Derrick Von Beekman takes ad vantage of In trying to get Rip to sign 'paper. But Rip won't, becoming ' "auspicious when Von Beekman offers j Jjhlm money.

It is one of the penalties of success, and he has been compelled to bow to the inevitable. He has been fortunate In securing a play in which he appears as a priest and which combines all the elements of a successful production. In "The Golden Rule." n four-net mm. edy drama by Jerrold Shepard, Mr. suuy is seen In the role of Father O'Neill, pastor of a little church in New York city.

The tJoldeti Rule. i.mWhtli Daniel Sully produced "The "A Eace for Life" Opens Engage ment To-night. In projecting plays of the most sen sational melodramatic complexion Theodore Kremer has never yet got left at the post, and in "A Race for Life," his most recent thriller, and a thoroughbred one at that, has made such a good start that a winning finish is most likely. It must be left to the stage to tell the story of the plot, which it is booked to do at the New Haven theater to-nleht and to-morrow and Saturday nights and at. the regu lar matinee Saturday under the man agement of the P. H. Sullivan Amuse ment company and the assistance of realistic and adequate scenes and set tings and a company carefully se lected. The staged story introduces, among other 1 characters, Austin Seymour, a badly involved cattle ranch owner; Jessie, his daughter; John Hunter, a western horse owner; Harry, his son and Jessie's sweetheart; Alexandra Belmont, a New York heiress in Inva with young Hunter; Nick Davis' sweet- neart; BUI, one of Hunter's trainers; Jim, a brakeman: Hon 1 .ee nnri Pa. della O'Grady, servants on Seymour's ranch, and a number of minor char acters. , Playing a star role In the cast also appears "Our JessleT" Seymour's beau tiful and speedy candidate for the Los Angeles Derby, who plays a most im portant and sensational part, as the objective victim of dope, dynamite and deviltry at the hands of Hunter and his minions, and finally as her owner's ravior from ruin and suicide. Hunter, who Is as thorough-paced a scoundrel as ever trod upon track or stage, takes advantage of- his power as Seymour's chief creditor to force him into wagering his life insurance upon his more; and, in case she loses the agreement is that he (Seymour) shall commit suicide In such a manner as to make It appear the result of an accident ( The dramatic possibilities involved In such a bargain are novel and strongly utilized. The family Jars be tween the sleepy Chinaman and the bustling Irish cook furnish comedy galore. POLI'S. Pullman Porters on Bill for Xext Week. , The Stunning Genafliers and Marzel lo's Birds are the two big features that make up Poll's bill this week. Ida Fuller Coming. Ida Fuller, the dancer with her spec tacular ones, the Buterflies, the Spirit of the Storm and the Sorceress of Vesuvius, will be the headliner of the roll bill next week. Tncle Tom's Cabin. Al W. Martin's mammoth scenic and electrical spectacular revival of the great and everlasting celebrated masterpiece of Harriet Beecher Stowe, entitled "Cncle Tom's Cabin," will be Pullman Porter Maids. "The Watermelon Girls" have been succeeded by "The Pullman Porter Maids," the proluct of the pen of Tim othy Barrett McMahon, to be Feen hero next week. In this vehicle, Mr. Mc Mahon Is given an opportunity to ex hibit his versatility as playwright, stage manager, costumer and com edian. He is ably assisted by . his wife, pretty'Edythe Chappellc, and the ten Pullman Porter Maids. ( The plot is simple. In the terminal station, the Pullman Maids are en gaged in acting as porters, and seek ing to capture theeluslve tip. Their singing and dancing should be of much assistance to this end. "Hubby" comes In with his wife, who U properly vexed because he has caused them to miss the train. 1 Why he was late develops, and Is too good to explain In advance. McMahon cleverly defends himself against the lecture he so well deserves, and the quiet exchange of wit and sarcasm ex hibits the finished quality of the act ing pf both Mr. McMahon and Miss Chappelle. The second scerie is an ex cellent representation of a limited ex press, . fully. Illuminated and flying through the night. "The Pullman Porter Maids" tired of porterlng, have enlisted in McMahon's company of Thespians, and an im promptu rehPirsal in black-face com edy Is held on the station platform. A number of songs and dances are scat tered through the act, and the Whole forms a clever feature which does cred it to the company. and Miss. Anna Notklns as Santuzza; Miss Bernadette Crowley as Lola; Mr. Charles ..O'Connell as Turlddu; Mr. Harry Merritt as Alflo. The story of the opera which is in two acts Is as follows; . "The scena Is laid In a Sicilian vil lage. Turlddu Is a village top. He loves In h!s way Lola and is beloved In her way by Lola. But he must serve In the army; when he returns, he finds Lola the wife of Alflo, a wagoner. Piqued, he seeks consolation in the love of Santuzza, whom he seduces, and she ad ares' him. Lola in turn is exasperated. She woos Turrlddu hot ly, and he becomes a double traitor. Santuzza, Easter day, Is under the ban of the church. She cannot kneel be fore the a'tar In prayer and rejoicing. Knowing that Turlddu has been with Lola, she appeals to his former love, reminds him of his promise. As she kneels to him, and as Turlddu sulks. Loin crorses the square on her way to the church. The women exchange bitter words. Lola enters the church. Turlddu strikes Santuzza and follows Loin. Mad with Jealousy,; the. desert ed woman tells the whole story of her shame and the baseness of the guilty couple to the wagoner. The service is over, and there is mirth and there lis drinking In front of the tavern, Alflo refuses to drink with Turlddu and bites his ear, a challenge to mortal Comhat. Turlddu, consrWnce-strlcken, feeling the swift approach of death, bids his mother Lucia good-bye. lAlflo 'kills him with his knife bc-hlnd the scenes. Women rush ,. upon thf stage In terror. The cry Is .heard, 'Neighbor Turlddu Is murdered." San- tuza falls like a dead body. Second Floor Elevator a 1 f'l Alt - M ft '! Upholstery Remnant Sale.

Delighted audiences are this week bestowing their liberal applause on the Bijou Theater Stock company In its production of the clever three-act farce comedy,' "Incog." The farce Is one of the merriest, maddest comedies seen on the Bijou stage in a long time and Is a laugh from curtain to curtain.
