too hilarious yesterday afternoon and
a complaint was turned In against
them
"Today" was presented at tho Keith
last evening to a falr-slzed audience.
That tho company Is a most excellent
ono, thoro is no room to question; In
tact the Interpretation of tho char
acters could not havo been bettor. As
to tho play itself, It Is questionable
whethcrs its presentation Is not pro
ductive of moro harm than good. Tho
doslro of tho leading character, a
married woman, to possess good
clothes leads her to questionable re
sorts nnd tho companionship of men
who furnish tho monoy with which to
dross her. The husband learns of lior
waywardness, and not disclosing his
Identity meets her at a resort, con
fronts luy wltjh hor unfaithfulness
and chokes her to death.

ho does say that tho contest leaders,

It may happen that the ono leading
when tho count was made last Friday
may bo distanced when the next count
Is made. Ono week ono contestant
will get an unusually big bunch of
votes, while tho next week some other
contestant will be tho favored one. It
Is a sort of a see-saw as to tho voto
getting; one day ono contestant plays
In luck, tlio nert day the luck goes to
some one else, yet nil tho tlmo tho
contestants aro adding to their num
ber. There is no lag In Interest in the
contest, It is as keen today as It was
tho first week. A few of tho contest
ants havo dropped out, but others have
taken their placo, and tho hunt for
votes Is pursued with vigor. Tho
contest tlmo Is now nearly half over;
the remaining weeks should bo strenu
ous ones for tho contestants.
