Hanlon'a "Fantasmn" made its annual
appearanco at tho Lansing this weok
Monday and Tuesday. There, were
Bomo new things; but it was substant
ially tho samo old spcctaclo, with its
glittering sconory, brilliant transforma
tions, fantastic costumes, interesting
tricks and specialties. The Hanlons
are masters of their business, and their
entertainments are always tho best of
their class. A great many people go to
seo "Fantasma" year after year, and
thoy always onjoy tho play, If it can bo
called through theatrical llcenso, a play.
It appeals to a class ot Its own. "Fan
tasma" is a wholesome entertainment,
spirited and bright.
"Eight Bells,' a scenic and musical
comedy, with a ship in it,'whi;h makes
it nautical, was produced at the Lansing
this week, this being tho third timo- it
has been presented in Lincoln. Most
theatre goers are familiar with this skit,
which, by tho way, has had a singularly
successful career. It is mado tho vehi
cle for tho introduction of music and
fun, and the specialties are good. There
is a great deal of "go" in "Eight Bolls;"
ho r s no lagging of action. Somo
changes are observable in this season's
production, and in a few instances thoy
are an improvement. In tho vernacu
lar "Eight Bells" ib a "good show." It
Ib well put on, and somo clover pooplo
are concerned in it.
"Eight Bells" will be repented at tho

to go to Chicago to tako the manage

Frederick Paulding, who is. starring
jointly with Miss Maida Craigen in "A
Duol of Hearts," is widely known in this
section ot tho country as tho "Omaha
boy." Mr. Paulding's family namo is
Dodge. He is tho son of Colonel Richard
Irving Dodge, a renowned Indian tight
er, formorly commander ot tho Twenty
third United States Infantry, and for
many years stationod at tho prominent
military posts ot Kansas, Nebraska,
Dakota and Wyoming. Mr. Paulding
passed several years of his boyhood at
Fort Loavcnworth and Fort Omaha, and
his soubriquet of tho "Omaha boy" was
given him by his friends there, ho hav
ing mado his first appearanco on tho
Btago as an amateur in Omaha in 187Q.
Ho came into prominence somo years
ago, when ho starred in "Hamlet" and
tho "Fool's Revenge." Ho acted as lead
ing support with Margaret Mathor for
six consecutive seasons, playing Romeo
and other Shakespearian characters with
unqualified success. Ho played Captain
Jack Absolute in tho famous Jefferson
and Florenco production of "Tho Rivals"
and last season he achieved considerable
distinction as leading support with tho
tragedian, T. W. Keone. Ho will bo
especially recalled for his magnificent
production ot tho groat scenic melo
drama of "Tho Struggle for Life." Mr.
Paulding and Miss Craigen will appear
at the Lansing theatre, in "A Duel of
Hearts" Mondsy evening.
Mr. Paulding and Miss Cragon will
appear in a grand doublo bill Tuesday

"Tho Sotting ot tho Sun."
t t t
"In Old Kentucky" comes tothoLanB-
Ing theatre Wednesday Fobruary 21?
with tho prestige of a genuine Now York
success and endorsed and commondod
on all sides as a play of unusual strength
. ' and gorgeous scenic display. It is, in
fact, tho ono striking success of tho sea
son in Now York, where its series of
truthful pictures of southern life caught
tho fancy of Gotham's play-goers. It ie
a melo dramatic spectacle of irront anion.
' dor. Tho four leading scenic artists of
, Now York Young, Mnraton; Emons and
Vocgtlln wore engaged for Bovoral
months preparing tho scenery. A great
feature is mado of tho raco, and it will
bo a real raco so far as it is possiblo to
havo one on tho stage tho horses mak
ing a wild dash across tho stage and
under tho wire in full view of tho audi
ence. A view of tho famous Lexington
race track is shown, with tho grand
stand filled with enthusiastic spectators,
tho book-makers crying tho odds und in
citingpcoplo to invest, tho band stun
occupied by tho Pickaninny brass band
of young darkies just entering their
teens, tho judges occupying thoir elabor
ate box, and tho multitude of hangers-on
always to bo found at a raco track. Tho
paddock will also be shown with tho
horses, jockeys, touts and othor attend
ants, tho weighing-in, tho mount, and
other bits of business common to such
places. Another scono is a grand and
awe-inspiring view ot tho Kentucky
Mountains, showing a tremendous chasm
spanned by a small foot-bridge and built
toahoightof ft) foot. Tho bridgo falls
into tho gorgo and the heroine makes a
flying swing across tho chasm on tho ond
ot a rope, suves her lover from impend
ing death by picking up a dynamite
bomb, which is about to explodo, and
hurls it into the abyss where it explodes
with terrific force, shattering the walls
of tho precipice and causing tho whole
mass to fall. Tho play deals with Ken
tucky life and character. With the
auxiliaries nearly 109 pooplo will bo em
ployed in tho production. In tho com
pany are Laura Burt, Edward Holland,
Frnzer Coulter, Charles T. Parsloo,
Charles II. Ilradshnw, Edward Whito,
Marian Abbott, Charlotte Winnett nnd
"HIb Nibs and His Nobs" is tho title
of tho burlesque absurdity which N. E.
Nibbo's gigantic burlesque company will
present at tho Lansing theatre Satur
day, Fobruary 24., Thirty pretty young
women are conspicuous upon thoir roster,
and tho specialties are new and kept up
to tho hour. Tho costumes are sakl to
bo paragons ot art, and tho scenic acces
sions an artistic triumph. Nibbo claims
to havo tho "Barnuui of them nil" as far
as burlesque organizations go, and from
tho favorablo prcsaoncomiumsoxhlbited
there seems to be somo reason for tho
On tho stage, whore action is tho
primary demand in tho climax of tho
play, death must bo mado' dramatic.
Perhaps one ot tho best, known deaths
on tho stage is that Camlllo in Aloxandor
Dumas' play. Camlllo Is supposed to
die of consumption nnd tho death comes
from hemorrhage ot tho lungs. Tho
action ot the body following homorrhago
of tho lungs has nothing dramatic about
it. It tho blood vessel which breaks is
very large there may bo a soml-convul-slon
resulting from tho shock. Othor
wlso tho death comes from the loss of
blood that pours from the mouth or
from strangulation that is, tho lungs r
fill with blood so that tho sufferer can
But such a death as this would not
satisfy tho demands of the stage, or what
are beliovod by many persons to bo those
demands, and we therefore seo Camlllo
in strong convulsions. There are many
deaths on tho stugo in plays, when the
causo of death Ib supposed to be heart
dlsoaso, As a matter of fact, thoro are
a number of diseases ot tho heart, in a
majority of which tho person dies be
cause tho heart simply stops beating.
When this happens a real death Ib like
nothing so much aa a faint or syncope;
tho Bufforor merely collapses and the ond
Alxiut such deaths, howovor, thero'ls
nothing dramatic, and actors and
actresses, therefore, gonerally choose to
personate that form ,of heart disease
known to physicians as angina iwctoriB.
In this dlsoaso there is the most intense
pain conceivable, and those sufferinu
from it not only manifest tho Intolossbl
