when she wrote Under Southern Skies.

with action galore. In addition she
works in a prettiness of detail that a
man might strive for all time to bring
about, but which a woman can do innate
ly Under Southern Skies tells of life in
lower Louisiana in the period around
1875 and necessarily brings in the quaint

used is suggestive of the South in ev

the courtesies of the old regime and
other interesting phases of southern
life The plav will be seen in the audi

One of the events of the theatrical
season will be the appearance of Un
der Southern Skies at the auditorium
Wednesday evening. So great has been
the success of this beautiful play
throughout the East that five entire
seasons have been played there, many
cities being visited four and five times.
The play is in tho author's most de
lightful' vein and when It U remem
bered that Mrs. Parker, who wrote Un
der Southern Skies, also wrote Way
Down East, much may be expected of
this, her latest drama. Under Southern
Skies is full of life, light nnd gaiety,
and fills the audience with the spirit of
youth and romance. The great beauty
of the scenic settings, the dainty cos
tuming, the many amusing nnd divert-
c haracters and lncuienis, ine au-
sorbing love story, and the Jlallowc en
celebration nnd pumpkin dance, all go
to make Under Southern Skies one of
the most delightful nnd satisfying en
tertainments now before the public.
The company is very large, numbering
in all 27 acting people, the unusual
number of 11 women appearing in good
Mrs. William Mather, who for the

of this state from 17 1 9
until 1780. Mrs. Mather was married
to William Mather at Guilford May 8,
1836 Their golden wedding anniver
sary was celebrated last May. Of the

The Bagged Messenger.
The auditorium was well filled last
evening at tne appearance oi i region
Clarke in the title role of The Ragged
Messenger. The name of the pluy is ;
somewhat misleading, the hero being
rather The Messenger of the Poor a
young, unconventional, outspoken cler-.j
gyman culled John Morton, who works j
iti the "slums'' aud who is made the
sole heir of a dying millionaire who
thinks to retrieve his fust life by a
death-bed repentance. Tho heroine,
Mary Ainslcigh, played by Virginia
Thornton, feels that she is cheated by
this legacy as tho inheritance had been
promised "to her, a former mistress of
the millionaire. She plans to secure
it from Morton by making him love
her. In so doing, she loses her own
heart to the unselfishness of the young
clergyman, consents to marry him, but
does not confess her past. When the
truth comes to Morton, it is accompa
nied by evidence that she is also false
to him". Pretending belief in her inno
cence he apparently dares those who
believe her guilty to a test but secret
ly warn her and afterward in private,
denounces her. The situation is a
strong one and is remarkably well in
terpreted by Mr. Clarke aud Miss
Thornton. The play ends happily in
complete understanding aud forgive
ness brought about by confession of
the villain, Bertie Carpenter, a Beaux
Arts man. The play is extremely well
written, though perhaps somewhat
strenuous for immature minds to profit
bv; the company was well balanced and
the acting was good. The audience
was pleased, though inclined to com
pare the play with Clarke's Monsieur
Beauacire, a comparison manifestly un
fair to The Ragged Messenger, as in
the latter' play there is no elaborate
scencrv or costuming to help out the
aetingl! which demands much more ef
fort. Manager Fox was disappointed
that the company did-not bring special
scenery, and very nearly cancelled the
engagement on that account. Those who
appreciate a good play for its own sake,
are glad that he did not do so.

The census instituted by the Brattle
boro board of trade was completed
Tuesday. It shows that the town's
population at present is 7,923. This is
a gain of 1,283 since the United States
census of 1900, which gave Brattle
boro 's population as 6,640. Most of
this gain has doubtless been made dur
ing tho past three years. The census
was taken by H. B. Lawrence, who was
assisted bv George H. Hall. It was be
gun Saturday, Sept. 29. During his
journey about town Mr. Lawrence
came across less than half a dozen un
occupied tenements, and the majority
of these were only temporarily vacant.
