'Frances hung herself at 1:30 Saturday'.
This "ed to the belief that the two old

body being cut down by the sister. But

free from sand, gravel, stone and alkali. With even a minimum
amount of cultivation and care this land can be made to yield
diversified crops the equal of, if not superior to, those grown in
any of the most favored parts of the continent.
"The soil everywhere is of the richest quality. It is composed
of fine deposit soil with clay sub-soil; in some parts the deposit
attains a thickness of over forty feet. Not only is the grass very
luxuriant on the prairies, but even in the wooded portions pea
vines and vetches of different species grow to such a height that
it renders traveling very difficult." Extract from Government
I or ttfi Prn While, prior to the coming of the
Lalg6 UlOpSi Grand Trunk Pacific, comparatively
little farming has been carried on, this has been due solely to the
lack of transportation facilities. Had it not been for this draw
back these lands would have been settled and cultivated long
before much of the country further east, as they are much super
ior in every way. Yet,' in the face of this difficulty, large crops
of grain and vegetables have been raised, crops that would com
pare favorably with those from any part of the country. !

The moderate and even climate of this valley is due in part to
the protection given by the surrounding hills, the remoteness from
snowclad mountains, the nearness to the Pacific, and the fact
that the intervening section, between the Nechaco Valley and the
ocean, has a lower altitude than any of the surrounding country.

There is evidently no diminution of In
tel est in "The Virginian," and those who
go now to see the Wyoming play are plainly
as deeply Interested as audiences of past
years in the courtship of Molly Wood by
tle man whose name is never spoken. As
evidenced yesterday, the mixing up of the
babies Is as mirth-provoking as it used to
be and the Judge Lynch act and the duel
scene are as productive ot as much tension
as before. , . i
While the play gives these evidences of
continued hear'ty i;fe, It may nut do so when
ll falls Into the hands of an inefficient
coiT.pany. This catastrophe has not as yet
occurred, for it- Is now being played by a
troupe of even excellence.
Mr. Gibson Is highly satisfactory In the
leading role. His playing Is considerably
more convincing In the more serious pas
sages than In the few lighter moments,
but he Is not Inadequate at that In the not
numerous oomedy lines which fall to him.
Except by the caramel contingent, the
character of Trampas la held as much
worth while ft that of tho Virginian him
self. Consequently as much depends upon '
the casting of this part as the other. Mar
shall Farnum has Indeed an even heavier
task than the other player, for the reason
that there is a general unanimity that of
the two well-known actors who previously
played these parts, the man seen as
Trampas excelled the actor of the Vir
ginian. Up to this difficult standard, Marshall
Farnum measured well. His Trampas Is
an ugly, malevolent brute, docsedly mean,
a character Intensely positive In Its vlclous
ness. Only In respect to the shading of a
hint of cowardice in the character does he
tall short of the ' great achievement of
Frank Campeau In this part.
There have oen a good many Molly
Woods and MIks Wright Is equal to any of
her predecessors in a role not remarkably
thankful. The school ma'am of the play U
not given a really great deal to do besides
being sweet, pretty and sympathetic. The
minor parts are well filled throughout. The

ticularly well done. "The Virginian" will

engaged In the frivolity of a playful chorus,

cerns itself In a timely- sort of way with
the troubles of a South American republic,
whose revolutionists extend their opera

the "Candy Kid" of Tale, played by Ray
mond Payne, who acquits himself well and
with plenty of dash. He Just has a Jot of

Wanda Ludlow, as Bonnie Bosworth, is
pretty and charming for herself alone. She
is altogether pleasing in her experience of
being kidnapped by conspiring villains, and
in the rescue in deliclousty Impossible ways
by the hero.
The note of tragedy seems to be done to
the limit. If not a bit over, but it at least
serves to throw up snarpiy tne more
worthy comedy of the production.
