la not a complete list ef all that will be
seen during the winter, however, for sev
era! other good thlnga are atlll under ne
gotiation, and Mr. Burgess hope to be
able to .pleasantly surprise the people of
Omaha with some future announcement.
When the Boyd reopen on change will
he noticed. For the convenience of the
patrona of the house. Manager Burgess ha
removed the box office from the west to
the eaat aide of the lobby. Tbla will allow
the room that has been used for the box
office to be devoted to the usea of the public.
Manager Burgesa will retain hla private of
fice, but the ante-room will be open, and
can be used aa a smoking room, or what
ever the friends of the manager car to
put It to. The telephone will not be re
moved, and every convenience tor the ac
commodation of patron will be found. In
th meantime the old smoking room at the
east aide of th auditorium la atlll open.
From the new box office Treasurer Eddie
Monaghan'a face will amlle on a boat of
frtenda limited onty by the number of
patrons of th house. It waa planned by
Messrs. Woodward A Burgeas that Mr.
Monaghan ahould go to Kansaa City on the
opening of the new Willi Wood theater
there to be treasurer, but after the year'a
delay tn the opening the managerial Arm
determined that It would be more expedient
to place J. W. Scott In charge of the box
office at the new theater. Mr. Scott was
very popular tn Omaha, and will be greatly
missed, but hla successor Is equally well
known and liked. He baa been Mr. Scott's
assistant for several yeara, and hla advance
to full charge of the box office has brought
htm many congratulations.
Mr. Burgeaa went to Kansas City on
Thursday to assist la final preparattona for
the opening of the new Willis Wood theater
oa Monday night. This event was first set
for October 1, 1901, but the builder decided
to make' some slight alterations In the
structure, and has accordingly spent 1100,000
more than h originally Intended In order
to give to Kanaas City the finest theater
building In the weat. At first It waa the
plan to call It the Baltimore, but on reflec
tion the leaaeea decided that no fitter title
could be given the magnlfioont Thespian
temple than that of Ita owner, and for him
It waa named. Kansas City Is locally very
much Interested in the opening, so much
so that the manager turned th a! of
eat for th first night over to a commit
tee of dtlsena, who sold the tickets at
auction. While ao fancy prices were
realised, the aale waa complete and a sum
amounting tn a little over $(.000 waa real
ised. Amelia Bingham and her all-star
company will present A Modern Magda
len" for the opening bill. W. A. Bancroft,
for many years dramatic critic of the Kan
sas City Star, will manage th theater and
John W. Scott of Omaha will be treasurer.
Carl Belter, local manager for the
Orpbeum circuit, la as busy as a nailer
these days, getting his house In readiness
for the opening oa September tl. At that
time patrona of the Crelghton-Orpheum
will find, the handsome theater shining
like th beauty It Is. For several weeks
painters and decorators hsve been at work,
and the entire Inside of the large audi
torium has been retlnted and newly
frescoed, while the upholstery has been
restored to Its original brightness. Dark
green and gray Is the groundwork of the
. design, and the result la not only pleas
ing but restful to th eye. Mr. Relter
aow haa matters In such stags that he Is
certain aO wlU be ready before the o pea
lug a 1 1 h t. He baa had some correspond
eace with Mr. Martin Beck, secretary of
the Orpheuta circuit, who tells .hla that
a number of good thing have beea secured
for the vaudeville season. "W will open
the season," wrltee Mr. Beck, "with aa
array of great specialties, which have
beea collected by the Orpheum represent
ative all ever the world. Among other
are the Rlecobona brothers, th Atho

near Delhi, India, who has been abducted
and taken to Prague and there held cap

sess certain mysterious powers this Unorma
possesses to lurtner nie own avaricious
desires. The many stirrlna- events inci

CHICAGO, Aug. 21. Th Idea of Chicago
as a summer resort seems to be growing as
the city wears a very summery air. It is
delightfully cool and bracing and I am told
that the weather ha been really too cold.
Everyone whom I meet tell me that If one

I overheard a conversation oa ths train,

One gentleman facetiously remarked that
the only attraction was a park at which
there was a contortionist. As a truth
"contortionist," th person was undoubtedly
a success. I bad not heard of any such

This whs particularly noticeable among
