spent several hours most pleasantly
in this delightful pastime.
The hall had been very prettily pre
pared for the occasion with the long
streamers of orange and green draped
artistically from the chandeliers to
the different parts of the hall. This
color scheme was carried out thor

One of the prettiest stories placed
on tne stage is emoouieil in that ot
"The Good Samaritan," by W. Beal
forci Nettap, and which was presented
here by a company headed by W. B.
Patton, one of the cleverest actors en
the stage today. The play is one fill
ed with rare opportunities for the
clever actor, and the leading role, that
of Tom Hodge, taken by Mr. Patton,
war. a very strong one that moved the
audience alternately to laughter and
tears in the more griping portions of
the play. The humor displayed by
Mr. Patton is a style particularly his
own and gave the finishing touches to
the clever production. As June Mer

ing and sweet and displayed a most
delightful stage presence in her en
actment of the role of the minister's
daughter. A great deal of the comedy
of the play lies interwoven around the
characters of Dick Wilde and Mazie

New Jail Getting Popular.
From SaturdaVs Dai'y.
The new city jail in the basement
of the city hall is becoming quite a
popular place these cool evenings for
the hoboes and homeless wanderers
who are quartered there by the police.
The place is not entirely finished, but
makes a very comfortable place to
quarter these people from the cold
weather, even if the couches provided
are not covered with swansdown. The
police can keep their eye on these
wanderers here a great deal better
than before, when they were allowed
to wander around over the city, and
by rounding them up at night they
can be kept from getting into trouble.
It will be some time before the formal
house-warming of the jail, when it is
entirely completed, and the police are
