SaBii London correspondent: Tho
theatrical and inimical world of Loudon
is anxiously awaiting tho new Gilbert

"''ch i is. honed will bo produced

"Tho Story of u Kibs," a new play from
tho French, from tho pen of'Eniilo
Zola. Tho plot in laid in Franco at th

lives of two people who are ruled moro
by their nerves and feelings than by
their reason. Thero aro several start

Miss Merll will present her version of
"Thereeo Raqtiln," the play in which
Mrs. James Drown Potter and Kyrlo

and was written by Elinor E. Vance, a
former Columbus tologrimh operator.
who has utilized his tiaiuing to intro
duce many startling and wonderful in
volitions In stage effects, many of which
aro produced by the aid of electricity,
and servo to worlc tho spectators up to a
high pitch of excitement. A railroad
train two hundred feet long and twelve
feet high dashes at lightning speed
across tho stage, rccupylng jiiHt six
seconds to do it in. A wreck scene, a
saw-mill scene, and somo unique
featutes of telegraphic manipulations
aro among the other triumphs of rea
lism. Unlike most nlays of its class, it
has u well defined plot and around this
is woven tho interesting situations that
go to make an enjoyable performance.
Whiloa night operator at tho Union
depot, Columbus, Mr. Vance conceived
tho idea of writing a novel depicting
in a truthful manner tho'many incidents
and episodes by which ho was dailysur
lounded. "Nellie Harland; A Homauco
or tho Kail and Wire," was tho result.
And the little volume had such a largo
sale, and tho critics were so enthusias'
tic over his maiden effort, that it was
finally decided to dramatize the work
which was done, and it was christened
"Tho Limited Mail." Tho royalties
from tho book bring him an income of
several thousand dollars a year, while
from tho play ho derives, it is said, no
less than e.r,000 a month. Tho sale of
seats opens Monday.
Tho loverB of sensational drama, and

This American melodrama has been
a pronounced success, and it has coined

and which takes with all classes of our
people. Tho company is an excellent
one, Manager Williams having given
much time and care to its selection.
