Three Weeks," at the Kng,
"Three Weeks" la to be Been at the
Krug this week-end. It Is a dramatization
by Kllnor Glyn of her book of the same
name, and Is arranged in a prologue and
three acts. The prologue occurs In the
boudoir of the queen In the palace nt
Sardalla, and attempts, by showing the
brutal nature of the king, to justify the
doubtful course about to be pursued by
tbe queen. In the three acts which fol
low, comes the play proper, the story of
the driven woman's search for an heir.
To say that the play Is strongly emo
tional la putting It mildly. Thn nntlca of
a French waiter constitute the only thing
comlo to relieve the tensity of action.
By far the larger part of the acting falls
upon the capable and beautiful shoulders
of Miss Jeanne Towler, who Is cant In the
rola of "The Lady." The play affords op
portunity for some beautiful stage pet
tings, in particular of the loggia of the
palace at Venice.
Notes from the Stater World.
After an absence of ten years from the
field of musical comedy, Miss Maria Davis,
best known to American playgoers for her
character work In comedy drama, will re
turn to her earliest love, taking a promi
nent part In "Marriage a la Carte." the
Joint product of C. M. S. McLellnn and
Ivan Caryll. Miss Davis holds an unusual
stage distinction in that she has had no
more than four managers In the twenty
eight years which make up her profes
sional career. Four years with Tom Rob
ertson, seven years with George Edwardes,
seven years with Sir Charles Wyndham
and ten years with David Belasco represent
her activities. "In Town," the pioneer of
all musical comedies, was one of the pieces
in which MIhs Davis made herself popular
with London audiences. She was also In
"The Shop Girl," "My Girl," "The Circus
Girl" and a lot of other musical comedies
of the girl sort. Miss Davis came to the
TTnlted States to play a single season. Bhe
Joined 'tho company of Mrs. Leslie Carter
and then helped David Warfleld In "The
Auctioneer." Instead of staying a single
season, she has stayed ten years, support
ing Warfleld in successes following "The
Auctioneer," and appearing with the other
Belasco stars from time to time.
"The last time I saw George Edwardes,"
aid Miss Davis yesterday, "I asked him,
rather Jokingly, why he didn't offer me a
part He answered: 'Because I haven't
any part that would suit you they don't
write parts of that sort any more.' "

"Prove all things; hold fast that which

Professor Huxley once said that men of
science no longer lu Justification by faith,
but In ' "Justification by verification."
Here in a man of religion who teaches
"Justification by verification" aa well as
"Justification by faith."
Arter Jesus Christ, the figure which
stands out moat prominently In the New
Testament Is Paul the Apostle. Here 'we
have a man who was the greatest thinker
of his age, if not of any age. His writings
I have been among the mightiest Intellectual
' forces of the world, and are still growing

world-conquering respect: Wesley In earn

men added a single new Idea to the world's
stock of beliefs, whereas Paul, while at
least equalling them In their own special
line, gave to Mankind a new world of
thought, lils writings have quickened the
mind of the church as no other writings
have done. Out of them have been brought
the watchwords of progress In every re
, formation which the church has exper

the slumber of centuries It was a word of
j Paul which he uttered with his mighty
voice. And when our own country has

who had rediscovered the truth for them

WThat of the man, whose writings have
been such a mighty force In the world's
history? The outstanding features of his
intellect, his marvellous memory, the
keenest of his logic, the clearness and
depth of his thought were conspicuous In
everything that he wrote and spoke. He
was so great a thinker that he compares
more than favorably with any thinker
before or after him. In fact, he towers
above the majority of them. Such la the
man; and can you wonder that he should
exhort others to "prove all things?"
He Is not the man to take things for
granted. What does Paul mean when he
says In our text: "Prove?" He means

Brightside and His Boy
"I see the papers say that fewer buck
wheat cakes are being eaten this season
than ever before," begins Brightside, Son
arriving for the usual evening chatter on
the gossip of the hour.
"With your little Willie the buckwheat
am still de sweetest flower that grows,"
Son declares with considerable enthusiasm.
"This report states that consumption of
this flour has fallen off DO per cent in
New Jersey, long noted as one of the
strongholds of this gastronomlo Joy," ex
plains Father.
"Must be something wrong about any
state that will pass the buck to good old
buckwheat," denounces Sen. "What can
take the place of this, my favorite fruit?"
"Patent mixtures cakes and various pre
dlgested cereals are said to have driven
the old-fashioned buckwheat from the
breakfast table." replies Father.

declaims Son, waving his arms like an
anarchist making a speech.
'The commercial spirit seems to be regu
lating our diet more and mere every day,"
deplores Father. "Almost every kind of
food is nowadays done up in a fancy pack
age and sold at a fancy prloe."
"Merely because a man can buy a paste
board box filled with near-food for a dime,
10 cents, is no excuse for him to cut out
all the good eats,", declares Son.

special skill In applying tests, with a view
to discovering what Is real and what Is
counterfeit in mttuls, what Is good coin
and what Is bad coin. So we must ask the
question, "How can we prove all things?"
It would be well for us to remembir
that such a thing as absolute proof Is
not possible. Probability Is our guide In all
the afrairs of life. If this Is so In our
every-day temporal affairs, we ought to
be satisfied with like evidence In matters
of religion. Remembering this, let us ex
tmlne briefly one or two lines of evi
dence. X,et us see how Christ and Chris
tianity have both proved themselves to be
Have you ever thought of the wonder
fulness of Christ's life and character? The
character Is not described In words by
any of the evangelists or apostles. It is
revealed in his own words and acts. Words
and acts of beauty, glory and power are
Inseparable from Him. In tho gospels
the writers themselves do not speak. They
lot the life speak for Itself. A remarkable
feature is the unity of the portrait, despite
the fact that there are four different rep

"An extra link of sausage has many a
time proved to be the missing link between
the suburbanite and his morning express,"
admits Son. "But because a man who lives
at Mountalnville likes to pound the pillow
after the alarm clock rings, then eat a
bowl of pepslniied Bhavings and sprint for
the station, is no reason why the rest of
the world should hit up army rations."

in the gospels were Imposs ble mil ss true, Is a conception that has never been
attempted in the world of fiction. In
Christ we see strength and gentleness,
courage and meekness, holiness and love
at their highest. The life, death and char
acter of Jews are such that they are mag
nificently higher than all others.
Paul's belief In the resurectlon was abso
lute. He says, "He appeared to Cephas,
to the twelve, to above 600 brethren at once,
to James, to all tho apostles," and accord
ing to Paul, Chrlstlan.ty stands or falls
with this truth of the resurrection. "If
Christ hath not been raised, then Is our
preaching vain; your faith also la vain."
The resurrection of Christ Is certainly the
foundation of all that we believe, and ever
must be. All our hope springs from the
empty tomb, and If the apostle glories In
the cross, yet It was In the resurrection
that he found his final ground of confi
dence and triumphant Joy. And If we
would be Christians at all. it must be by
holding fast the truth of the resurrection.
Personal experience Is of a different
character from all the other lines of evi
dence. It consists In the confirmation by
experience of the teaching of Christ. In
its very nature Christianity appeals to the
test of experience. It makes promises and
offers blessings which everyone may prove
for himself. It offers forgiveness, moral
health and strength, the asurance of d.vlne
favor and hope, the grace of a perfect life;
In short, salvation or eternal life to all
In certain conditions. But we must be
lieve before we can receive. It Is not a.
mere Intellectual faith, although this is in-V
eluded, but a belief In Christ as a personal
Saviour; In what He has done for me; an
act of the whole "moral nature of man;
trust in Christ, submission to Him, devo
tion to His service. T!i.s test Is one easily
applied and within the reach of all. If the
experience were a rare one wo might
question Its reality. But It Is not! The
experience of the Christian todayv is simi
lar to that of others In all ages. Paul could
say, "I know In whom I have believed."
We ma be familiar with all other lines
of evidence, but If we do not hold for our
selves an experience of the truth of Chrls
t.anty we may be sure that we., shall have

are largely responsible for the passing of
the buckwheat cake. It is a good deal of
work to make the genuine article."
"A dame will put in two hours dragging
on her glad rags to go to a Broadway
restaurant to Juggle a bundle of spag
hetti and nibble at a biscuit tortonl,"
complains Son, "but she'd rather read the
riot act to hubby than nurse a batch of
buckwheat batter for a Sunday morning
splash of buckwheats."
"I wonder what a New York woman
would do if she had a family of five or
six boys to feed hot cakes to on a winter
morning?" muses Father. "When I was
a boy, if each of us couldn't eat fifteen or
twenty cakes, mother would think we
were off our appetite."
"If anything happened like that in this
little old town ," Son enlightens, "wlfie
would go up on the roof and turn a flip
flap into the North river. She'd rather
do that than flip flapjacks for a bunch of
guys with appetites like hired men."
"The reason why men don't eat buck
wheats in New York then seems plain,"
observes Father.
"Wedding belis will never Jingle for
your little Vvillle unless a buckwheat cake
.recipe is pasted across the marriage cer
tificate and the bride signs a bond to bake
a batch of cakes whenever X make a noise
like a stack of bucks," asserts Son.

The Boss of the EMabllshmcnt came In
with a very mysterious smile and a more
mysterious parcel In his hand.
"What do you suppose Is In that box?
No, don't touch it; let me hamfle it,
please!" he added In his most Important
"Violets?" his wife hazarded.
"No." said the Boss disgustedly; "its a
camera a beauty. I've been wanting one
a long time and today I bought It. I'd
like to get some snapshots to send to the
"Who's going to take tnem?" the Boss'
wife Inquired. "I used to snap fairly good
pictures with a little camera I had at the
convent, but I'm afraid I've forgotten all
about It now."
"I'll teach you the art of photography,"
said the Boss graciously. "It's reully very
simple when you once understand It."
The Boss' wife did not doubt this asser
tion, which proved itself. For the Boss,
when he left his home In the morning, did
not know a camera from a telescope, and
now at 8 o'clock he had returned a full.
fledged expert in photography.
A Mlver-tongued friend had caught him
on his way out to lunch and Dersuaded
! him that the chief function of a wlte, a
home and a collie dog Is to have "their
pictures taken.
Also the silver-tongued one had shown
him how to work the camera, or at least
so the Boss thought at that time.
"We can get up early tomorrow morning
and take a, lot of pictures before you go
to the office," his wife exclaimed, catch
ing his enthusiasm.
The Boss gazed longingly out upon the
back yard.
"1 think we might try some now." he
said. "The light seems pretty good."
"Fine!" acquiesced the lady immediately,
fluffing hur hair and assuming her most
becoming smile.
"Stand over by the summer house," com
manded the Boss after ten minutes' elab
orate Inspection of the camera. "Put your
hands behind you wait a minute. I don't
get you," he added, struggling vainly to
adjust the sight
"Don't you think you are a little far
away, dear?" his wife asked In her moot
conciliating tones. "Isn't there a little
thing down at the bottom there that meas
ures the distance?"
"Wno's taking these pictures?" asked
the Boss, Indignantly. But that's Just
like a woman. You stand over there giv
ing advice on a subject of which you know
absolutely nothing, i try to teach you to
take photographs and the first thing I
know you want to give me lessons."
The Boss' Wife made no reply. To have
her picture taken was next to opening
Christmas presents, her favorite amuse
ment, and she did not choose to Jeopardize
the undertaking by harsh words.
Meekly and dutifully she did her best to
carry out the Boss' conflicting orders. As
the queen of Sheba to the words of Solo
mon, she listened to his lecture on pho
tography as a fine art. '

She bowls us over, every one.
