Through nn accident ho in thrown Into a different environment and tho author, Margaret Mayo, lias evolved a strikingly interesting story In a good homely atmosphere. Fred eric Thompson lin provided an cln.h orale stage production and foe many eenos of the. place am pltiirenqiio to a degree, "Mr. frraVi Career." When "Mr. 1 Crete's Career," tho dramatization of Winston Churchill's well known hovel of tho siiina title, comes to the Hyperion theater on Monday and Tuesday evenings, De cember 28 and 2ft, under tho man agement of Comstock Oest, tho playgoers of this city will have a chance to wee a most tiniwual offer ing. Marion Fairfax arranged Air. Churchill's Intensely interesting story of lAmerlcan political life In dra.nia.tlo form, and In so doing retained ail the essential features of the hook and In addition developed more fully the character of Austin Vnnc, the popular young lawyer whom the people wish for governor, because of his opposi tion to corporate greed and corporate power wrongfully used. Austin's an nounced determination to run for thn office of governor at the solleltatloh of the railway president's daughter, after declaring an opposite intention to his own father, tho chief counsel of the railroad company, leads to In teresting situations and furnishes the climax to both the second and third sets. The various characters of Mr. Churchill's story lend themselves to dramatization In a most surprlslpg de gree, of Interest, and from start to finish "Mr. Crewe's Career" Is one of the most engrossing and stirring plays ever produced, Its splendid Interpretation, Frederic Sanlley In the leading role has a pari that i:i e.artly milted to his splonilM ability and Him cast support lug him is one of exceptional merit. The, seenh production Is wry elaborate, too, and lends to to make the story a very thrilling and realistic hit or entertain ment. Tliero me four acts nnd the action takes place in Now 'Mexico. A how on the at sign anil the one lined by Mr. Huntley is a bronco, and lends very materially to the show. The story Is of a. young man who is following tho path of cll. through hi father's influence, hut who In lime to save himself realizes Unit the love he hears Ills childhood playmate Is the greatest thing ill I he world to him; so he leaves his western home, comes cant ami Is married to the woman lie loves. "Hilly, tho Kid" will be me attraction at the rsrnnd in-nlghl and to-morrow night nnd matinee lo-niorrow. "H's Never Too Ute in Moml." With an exceptionally strong cast and a more than ordinarily elaborate production, A. .T, Spencer's "It's Never Too I.ate to Mend," or "The Wander er's Return," which proved one of the brilliant successes in melodramatic plays of last senf'on, will lie doubly welcome this year. There are four teen scenes each with a different set ting In the four acts and the man agement has taken especial care to place the various parts in the hands of thoroughly competent players, levers of melodrama should enjoy "It's Never Too I,ato to Mend," which rnmo to the Orand opera house Friday, December 25th, for two days. ors. Its clean, weV, put. on and splend idly played. Mathews and Ashley do a wharf net entitled "The Holdup," which Is unique, arid then entertain with good songs and recitations. They were i heartily recalled. An entirely new act j this season Is the riding of F.lla. I trad- j nn find Fred Derrick. Their feature as the world's greatest bareback rid- era was most interesting, and their j horses are no small pnrt of the act. The rdectrogru fill's new motion pie- tares are a proper finish for the bill and the general opinion Is that the week's bill is worthy entirely of the week's festive spirit.

From the coming on of the comedy bicyclists, Ren. Reyer and brother, through tho entire bill the audience at Foil's yesterday wondered how any thing could come that was better than had already been on. These two men rode real bicycles and parts of bicy cles, atone nnd together, In a most amazing manner. Two Roberts and Hayes, three clever people, played four parts very successfully. Lawrence Crane is really a wizard, and his conception of magic the most wonderful and artistic seen In this city for n long time. There are tricks and tricks following each other in rapid succession, and Ills vanishing lady's transferance from the Hindoo Serafugns to the ftlass Trunk was iiothlnK short of 'marvelous. Konney, Mi'Calian and I'latt are three singers worth hearing. Tlvy have very unusual voices which blend to perfection, A pretty little sketch is Mrs. Crane's comedy "Plxley Prodi gal Parents," done by Mr. ami Mrs. flardner Crane and three other play- noiivrs nwicn vnox t'k.i kf:.
