WATERBURY EVENING DEMOCRAT. TUESDAY, DECEMBER - If,. 1900. N , .
Theatrical s Fraternal "ARIZONA"." Augustus Thomas's wonderfully at tractive play, "Arizona." which will be presented at l'oli's this evening, has all the elements of dramatic strength which appeal to an audience. Whether taken as a whole or in part, it holds the attention of both the casual play goer -and the one who wishes to go deeper into the story of the passions of life the passions that are life. The environments are such that one finds ceaseless attraction in this hit of dia logue or that bk of action. The char acters are such that the soldier, the cowboy and the woman, one after an other, occupy the principal place. Hav ing enosen an appealing tncme ior ins story, Mr Thomas, the author, also chose a collection of people who would not only -preserve all the virtue which there was iu the central idea, but who would each, by contrast with the other, carry out the general plan and make this mimic world seem like a real one. The force of the characters and the excellence of the situations are backed up by 'dialogue which is always brisk, as the talk of the west should be. and which has a lightness now, or a som breness then, that is as distinct as the mountains and the shadows which form the background of the story. The play was presented here last season in advance of its Xew York engage ment, and its wonderful success at the Herald Square theater, whore it has beVn running since last summer, is now matter of history. If it doesn't pack Polis to the doors this evening, it will be because local show-ogers have for gotten the knack of recognizing an at traction of genuine merit. "WE TN'S OK TENNESSEE." It is a very catchy story that is told Ju the production of the above title, and the performance is an interesting one from start to linNh. 'J li.- conipauy presenting it is also a very capable and each of the parts was excellently handled. It is plays of this kind that appeal strongly to all theater goers, and last night's audience wns greatly pleased. The company will remain here for the next two days and will give matiuees each day. -Many per formances have been seen at higher prices that have not equalled this pro duction, and if you do not attend one of the next three performances you will miss a treat. The prices are pop ular, so that you can afford to see a splendid entertainment for a little money. "U.VCLE JOSH SPRUCEBY.'' Following at the Jacques, on Thurs 8 ay, Friday and Saturday, will be given Dave B. Lewis's big production of "Uncle Josh Slirueehy." The play is a story of Xew England life, and while written for laughing purposes, 'has a serious vein running through it. A number of specialties are intro duced and special scenery is used to show off the wonderful scenic effects. The realistic sawmill scene is a strik ing illustration of stagecraft. The band and orchestra accompanying the company is composed of high-class musicians. A grand street parade is given at noon. XELL GWYNNE.

""Wen," continued Murdock's voice, "it is at any rate a great satisfaction to play a game with an adversary worthy of one's steel. You hae played well, Mr. Sturgis. I think you would have won modestly; and you are losing as I .would myself have lost, had our positions been reversed. Good-bye." The gleaming eyes disappeared from the grating and the sliding panel closed with a metallic click. "Now, then," said Sturgis to his com panion, "the last chance lies in the speaking tube. But first help me move this box." "What do you want to do with the box?" osked Sprague, who, however, did as ho was bid. "It may help us to gain a little time. Put it down here." Sturgis struck a match and pointed out the spot. "On the hot-air register?" "On what looks like a hot-air regis ter. Did you ever see a hot-air regis ter with no apparent means of shutting off the heat?" Sprague, who stood almost over the register, suddenly threw back his head and gasped for breath. "You' have discovered the secret of Ihis death trap," said Sturgis, observ ing him. "Gas!" spluttered the artist. "Yes. he is g-oing to asphyxiate us. Now, quick, to the speaking tube! The box will somewhat retard the rush of gas; but, at the best, it is only a ques tion of minutes before the air becomes so charged as to render respiration impossible." Sprague rushed to the speaking-tube and whistled long and loud, after which he placed his ear to the mouth piece. "I hear some one walking," he sud denly exclaimed. The two men listened in breathless silence for an answering call. "Well, gentlemen, what can I do for you'.'" The words came, in Murdoch's voice. Sprague's eyes met those of the re porter and saw that the last faint glim mer of hope was gone. In that swift and silent interchange of thought there was resignation to the inevitable doom and the final farewell of two brave hearts. The spluttering candle gave its last flicker and went out, leaving the pris oners in utter darkness. The room was rapidly filling "with gas and they were beginning to feel its effects. "We can at least complete our task before we die," said Sturgis, with grim determination. "Our task!" "Yes, and insure Murdock's convic tion for our murder." "What chance is there that anyone will ever discover our bodies, since they are destined for Murdock's oblivion tank?" "Give me your hand," Sturgis re plied; "there is a box of matches. I place it here, between us. within easy reach. I want to write a few words to the superintendent of police to ex plain matters. By that time there will be enough gas in the room to produce a terrific explosion, when we strike a match. We can thus succeed in wrecking this place and calling at tention to it. If I should succumb before you do, do not fail to light the match." While he was speaking the reporter had taken from his pocket a pad and a pencil and had begun to write as rapidly as he could in the darkness. Sprague's head was beginning to swim and his cars were ringing, but the thought of Agnes Murdock was uppermost in his mind. "An exnlosion!" he exclaimed: "no no; that must not be. What ot Agnes? She may be hurt?" Sturgis continued writing. "It is the only chance there is of bringing Murdock to justice," he said, firmly. "But Agnes is innocent of his crimes," urgad the artist, in a thick voice. His tongue clove to his palate; he felt his consciousness ebbing. "Why should she suffer? I am go ing, old man I cannot hold out any longer Promise me that you that you will not strike the match " He staggered and fell against the reporter, who caught him in his arms. His own senses were reeling. "Promise " pleaded the half-unconscious man. "I promise," answered Sturgis, after an instant's hesitation. It struck a chill to his heart to see his friend dying in the prime of youth, strength and happiness. Suddenly a thought flashed upon him. "Brace upj old fellow. All is not yet over. The speaking-tube leads to fresh air. Here, put your lips to it and breathe through your mouth." " The artist heard the words and made an effort, to obey- these direc tions. With Sturgis' assistance he managed to place his lips to the mouth-piece of the speaking-tube. A few whiffs of comparatively fresh air sent the sluggish blood coursing through his veins and gave him a new hold on life. With renewed vigor came the animal instinct to fight to the last for existence. As the shadows of death which had been closing in upon him receded, ho became conscious of Sturgis' voice beating upon his ears in broken and scarcely audible tones. "It is the last chance Stick to the tube When he comes surprise him your . revolver shoot before " The reporter was clinging unsteadi ly to "his friend's shoulder, Sprague suddenly r.ealized that Sturgis in his turn was succumbing to. the effects of the gas. He sprang back in time to catch the staggering man in ' 'his etms. ' ' ("Selfish brute that I ami he ex claimed. "Here; it is your turn to breathe!" And he pushed the report en toward th tube. ; I No, no," .said turgis-, struggling faintly; "it cannot be both and you have everything to live for." - But' the artist was now the stronger, and b$ fuseedel. inforcing.htg friend. ) ' to 'inhale enough, fresh air to restore his departing" consciousness ' "V At' length S5t.urgis, with returning, strength, was about to" renew the gen erous struggle with Sprague, when suddenly the place was ablaze with the glow of ah electric light. "He waits to see if his work is done," whispered. Sturgis, to his companion. Then, observing that Sturgis was again on the verge of asphyxiation, he continued hurriedly: "Fill up your lung's with air, -quick! quick, I tell you. Now drop and feign death. Do as I do." Suiting the action to the word, Stur gis threw himself upon the stone lioor, face downward, and lay motionless, his right hand grasping a revolver con cealed beneath his body. Sprague, after a short breathing spell at the tube, followed his companion's exam ple. After a short interval there came a metallic click, which Sturgis recog nized as the sound made by the open ing of the slide in the panel of the door at the head of the stairs. A moment which seemed an eter nity of suspense followed, during which the prisoners felt, without being able to see, the cold gleam of the steely eyes of Murdock at the grating. Would he enter? Would he suspect the ruse? Would the two men retain their grasp of consciousness and their strength long enough to make a last light for life? These thoughts crowded upon the re porter's brain as he lay simulating death and making a desperate effort to control his reeling senses. - If Murdoch were coming he would have to shut off the gas and ventilate .he room. What was he waiting for? "Come in!" The words were Murdock's as he turned away from the grating and closed the sliding panel. "An interruption which probably means death to us," whispered Stuigis to his companion; "take another breath of fresh air, old fellow; we must hold out a little longer." Sprague, however, lay motionless !nd unresponsive. The reporter shook him violently and turned him over upon his back. The artist's body was limp and inert; his eyes half closed; his face livid. The reporter himself felt sick and faint. But, with a mighty effort, he succeeded in raising his friend in his arms, and dragging him toward the speaking-lube. There, of a sudden, his strength failed him. His head swam; bis muscles relaxed; he felt Spra&ae's limp form slip from his g rasp, totte;-ed, reeled, threw his arms wildly about him for support, and fell, as the last elusive ray of consciousness was slip ping away from' him. CHAPTER XXII. FATHER AND DAUGHTER. After Sprague had left her, Agnes, shaken by the conflicting emotions of fhe day, had gone to her room to rest and to prexare for the interview which she meant to have with her father on the subject of her lover and of Chatham. Having received word that Murdock would remain in his studj; during the rest of the afternoon, she had taken time to reflect upon what she meant to say, and how she meant to say it. Her visit was not prompted by the desire of a daughter to confide the great happiness of her life to the lov ing sympathy of an affectionate par ent; but Agnes was punctilious in the performance of what she considered to be her duties, great and small, and she counted it among those duties to obtain, or at any rate to seek, the pa ternal sanction of her choice of a husband. Her knock at the door of Murdock's study was answered in the chemist's quiet voice: "Come in." As she opened the door, Murdock advanced to meet her. He seemed to come from the direction of the ex tension. Miss Murdock sniffed the air. "Isn't there a leak of gas?" she in quired. "Y'es," replied Murdock; "I have just stopped a leak in the laboratory. Won't you take a chair, Agnes?" She felt his calm, searching glance upon her; and, in spite of her prep aration, she grew embarrassed, as was her wont, in her father's pres ence. "Did Mr. Chatham" wait to see you this afternoon?" she asked, after a momentary silence. Murdock observed her narrowly. ' ' "Y'es; Chatham has been here to day. I did not know that you had seen him." "I could not help seeing him; for he 'forced his way into the parlor, in spite of all the servants could do to prevent him." An almost imperceptible furrow ap peared between the chemist's eyes. "Has he been annoying you with his attentions?" The words were spoken in Mur dock's usual tones; but Agnes saw something in her father's eyes and in the firm lines of his mouth which sent a cold shiver down her spine, and caused her pity to go out to the .un fortunate young man who had offend ed her. "Perhaps he is more to be pitied than blamed," she suggested, gently. "My interview with him was certain ly not pleasant; but I bear him no malice." "Tell me about it," said Murdock, slowly. Agnes gave her version of the visit, in which, instinctively, she softened, as much as possible, the passion and brutality displayed by the account ant. Murdock listened in silence until she had quite finished. Then Agnes noticed that his right hand was clenched upon the arm of his chair with a force which caused the mus cles to stand out in hard knots. She looked up into-his face in sudden sur prise. ' i - v ' ,; His features gave no -indication of what his feelings might be; and hi voice, as usual, was'steady and delib erate. . ' - ." "I am sorry all this . shouldx have happened, Agnes.' As I told you yes terday, I hoped to save'you from this man's importunities. It cannot bo helped now. But I think I made it clear to the gentleman that his atten tions are as distasteful to me as they are to sou, J. A he seems to have told you,' he Has been obliged to leave ttie ; country I (Understand that y he has done something or' other which- makes, it safer-for him to undertake a long journey. At any rate, we are well rid of him for some time to come,' and I' think you need have no. fear, of fur ther molestation." "What did he mean by saying that he had had encouragement from you?" asked the young girl. "I am sure I do not know. That was of course a lie out of whole cloth.' He came to me with letters of jrecoia mendation from good friends of mine, and I therefore occasionally invited him to the house; -but that is all the encouragement he ever got from me. We live in the United States and at the close of the nineteenth century. The selection of a husband is no long er performed by a stern parent, but is left entirely to the young girl her self. That is certainly my way cf looking at the matter. When you find the man of your choice, my only function will be to give you advice, if you seek it, and my best assistance in any event." The turn of the conversation thus suddenly brought to the surface the topic which occupied the young- girl's mind, to the exclusion of all others; and which, for that very reason, had been kept severely in the background up to that point. "That reminds me," said Agnes, consciously, as a charming flush suf fused her beautiful face, "that I have sot yet broached the principal object Df this interview " Murdock observed her closely and waited for her to proceed. But Agnes was once .more laboring under a strange embarrassment and could not find words in which to frame the con fidence she was so Teluctant to offsr. Perhaps the chemist civincd some thing of the nature of what she was struggling to find expression for. At any rate, he noticed her embarrass ment and endeavored to como to her assistance with a few encouraging Words, spoken with unusual gentle ness. Agnes, engrossed with her own thoughts, did not notice it; but there Was in his manner as near an ap proach to tender wistfulness as, his nature was capable of. At last the young girl seemed to father courage, ind she was about to peak, when there was a knock upon the door. "Plsie, sur; there do be two gin lle:)n in the hall." "Who are they, Mary?" "Shure, thin, sir, I dunno, barrin' wan uv 'em do be a polacemun." "Did they ask to see me?" "They did not, sur; shure they asked tf Mr. Chapman was in." "Mr. Chathami?" "Yis, sur. And.-1 told 'e-Ji he wuz here Ihis afthernoon, and I wud see wuz he here now, fur I ain't seen him go )-it." "Well, Mary, you see he has gone, bince he is no longer here," said Mur dock quietly. "Take the gentlemen into the parlor, and tell them I shall be with them in a minute." "All right, sur." After the maid had left the room, Ihe chemist rose from his chair and. ivalked toward the door leading to the library. ,r "If you will excuse me for a few minutes, Agnes, I shall see what these men want. Wait for me here, if you V. ill. I shall be back directly." So saying, he noiselessly opened the folding doors and passed into the li brary, closing the dbors carefully be hind him. Freed from the presence of her fa ther, Agnes almost instantly regained her composure. She had not, how ever, had much time to collect her thoughts when ishe was suddenly start led by a loud, shrill whistle, which brought her to her feet in alarm. "Well?" She asked the question in anxious tones, as if realizing that life and ileath were in the balance. Then she placed her ear to the mouthpiece. I At first she could not make out the words spoken by her invisible in terlocutor. Then, gradually, they fell upon her ear with terrible distinct ness; and she stood spellbound, as in a horrible nightmare, with sudden ter ror in her staring- eyes, and with the fearful sense of impotence in her trem bling limbs. CHAPTER XXIII. THE SPEAKING TUBE. J Nature has implanted in every one of its living creatures, from the top to the bottom of the scale, the strongest of all instincts that of self-preservation. As Sturgis tell forward and clutched wildly at the uir, his hand struck the stone wall of the square chamber. No conscious im pression was made upon his brain by the contact; but, automatically, his fingers tightened as they slipped over the smooth surface. His right hand struck an obstacle and closed upon i in the convulsive grip of a dying man. Then a sudden gleam of consciousness Swept across his sluggish brain. It was the speaking-tube! He clung to it with the remnant of his strength and eagerly placed his lips to the mouthpiece. For a few min utes he drank in with avidity the re vivifying draughts of air which grad ually brought him back from the brink of death. With returning consciousness, the thought of his dying friend recurred to him in all its vividness. He tried to go to his assistance; but he was sick and faint, and his limbs were powerless to respond to his will. Then, at last, lie was seized with utter despair and gave up the struggle. .' ' He had sunk dejectedly upon the thair when a faint and indistinct mur mur, as of distant voices, beat upon his ears, whose natural acuity seemed ex traordinarily increased by the long nervous tension under which he had been. The ruling passion is strong in death; without knowing just why he did so, Sturgis found himself again at the speaking-tube, endeavoring to hear the conversation, the sound of Which evidently came from Murdock's office. He could barely distinguish a word here and there; but he recognized the. timber of one of the voices. It was the, chemist's, and his interlocutor was . a. woman perhaps his daughter,', li only he could reach 'Agnes Murdock with some word or signal. In suspense, he held his'ear to the mouthpiece, occasionally f taking a breath of fresh- air to renew his itceneth.- - . . he easonable FOIi LADIES A Coat, Cape, Jacket Fine Furs, Boas, Collarettes, etc. Dress Goods, all hew, in lengths price.

If he whistled, Mur dock would answer himself, and the Inst chance would be lost. But would she hear a shout ? And, if she did, would not her father prevent her from render ing any assistance? Y'et what other chance was there? Poor Sprague was dying; perhaps already dead. There Was no time to lose. He stood for awhile irresolute, and had just made up his mind to risk all on a bold move, when suddenly Mur dock's voice became more distinct, as if he were passing near the mouth-piece of the speaking-tube at the other end. "I shall be back directly." He was going then. Agnes, if it were she, would remain alone for at least an instant; and in that instant lay possible salvation. The reporter strained every nerva to catch some other word. None came. But presently he heard a door1 close. Murdock had. left the room. Now or never was the chance to act. With all his might he blew repeated ly into the'tube. "Well?" The question, came in the sweet tones of a woman's voice. (To be Continued.) If you want a team or hack, go to Austin's. 'Phone.
