It is not common to be blessed with three wives in five years, but Mr. Brague declares it is better thau none at all. " Who can the lucky woman be? The door tenders at the Auditorium are obliged to keep their eyes peeled nowadays in order to prevent them selves from being the victims of ficti tious tickets. At the recent appear ance of Howe's Moving pictures the ticket seller at the box otlice, not being familiar with the ways of the regular staff of the Auditorium, threw about 2H left over tickets into the waste bas ket instead of burning them. This bunch of tickets, which bv the wav bear no dates, went from the waste basket to the dump and from there into the hands of numberless small bovs who dailv paw over the refuse. The probable result is that one or sev eral of these tickets will be tried at every entertainment in the Audito rium, and unless the door tender has bis optics with him there will be more deadheads in the au iience than the manager intended.

Mail,' which has I made more ninnct for Lincoln J. Car- tcr than any of his melodramas, re-j turned to the Lyceum yesterday after j an absence of four years. It is like all of Mr. Carter's productions, differ-j ifig from the others onlv in the me clianical effects which are realistic, ihe production is rei with exciting situations and two lurire audiences sweltered through the per formance in the afternoon and night. The piece captured the crowd, every one holding His hrenth over the ter rific speed of the Fast Mail train. while marveling at the stage pictures of the wreck in mid-river and Niagara rails by moonlight. The scenery is all new and the mechanical devices are ingenious and clever. The cast is an extremely strong one " John F. Anderson, who lived in Brattleboro for a number of years, moving tj Philadelphia 12 years ago, and his son John II. Anderson, have been at the Brooks House this week looking about Brattleboro for a sum mer home. Since leaving here, Mr. Anderson has struck it rich in the strictest sense of the phrase and is now the possessor of no small fortune. He is president of the Tonopah Min ing company which owns the Tonopnh mine in Arizona nnd was the chief promotor in the developing of this wonderfully rich vein. Buving the claim for about $1" i.000 and paying onlv $10,000 down, Mr. Anderson saw enough gold taken from the bole in GO davs to pav the entire balance.

What may be an important arrest was made yesterday afternoon by Olli cer Hall when he took into custody Kdwanl Kobbins, who has been living .ft the Bratlleboro hous for the past two weeks. Olticer Hall received no tice from Deputy Sheriff Perry of Walpole, S. H., yesterday asking him to detain two men known us Edward and Bert Kobbins who were supposed to be at the Brattleboro house and he immediately went there. Onlv one of the men was found, however, the other having gone to Northampton, Mass. Kobbins was kept at the Brooks Hou-e last night in charge of Officer Perham, nnd this morning Sheriff Perry and a Boston . Maine railroad detective arrived in Brattleboro on the early train. Most of the morning has been spent in talking with Perry and con sultation ninoog themselves, and the two men finally went north leaving the prisoner here. lhe supposition is therefore that the ollicers have gone to Bellows Falls to make out a warrant, not daring to take Kobbins on the pres ent one. They will return to Brattle boro this afternoon. Kobbins is wanted for the theft of some mileage books but it is stated by the officers that a much graver charge may be preferred. Put it in Now !
