Surrounded by a company of unusual
excellence, magnificent and appropriate
scenery, costumes historically correct
and with attention to the smallest de
tail, Otis Skinner's revival of "Franceses
Da Rimini' is one of the greatest dra
matic events of the season, and has
scored a triumph in its recent presenta
tion in Chicago. No recent dramatic
presentment has received evch unani
mous and unstinted praise of the press
and public As Lanciotto in "Frances
co Da Rimini" Mr. Skinner is seen at
his best. It will be gratifying news to
many of Mr.-Skinner'a admirers that he
will be seen at the Oliver on Monday
The most interesting and beautiful
pastoral play known to the English
speaking stage is-"Shore Acres," which
is easily the beat known and successful
of all of Jamei A. Heme's famous plays.
For this season, which is the tenth con
secutive one, an excellent company of
players, beaded by Mr. James T. Gallo
way and Miss Marion Cullen, has been
engaged. There will also be an abund
ance of new scenery and other unique
features. The lovers of refined stage
art should not fail to see this really fine
comedy-drama. At the Oliver for only
one night, Thursday, October 17.
Do you want to laugh? Yes? Well,
then, just visit the Oliver next Saturday
evening and you will get all you want in
the way of mirth; you will find it quite
a treat to sit out a farce and not be
bored to death by eome would-be, low
comedian trying to be funny and mak
ing a hEsh of the business. Harry Beres
ford, who will appear as Seymour Sites
in "The Wrong Mr. Wright," is spoken
of as a comedian of rare ability and the
possessor of a striking personality and a
humorous faculty as rich as it is abund
ant. The story of "The Wrong Mr.
Wright'' is a piece of genuine humor; go
and see it. The action is good through
out, the dialogue the smartest of the
smart and the action of the play rapid.
There is not a dull moment from the
rise to the fall of the curtain.
Hundreds of local readers of Sienkie
wiBCz'.novel. "Quo Vadis," will find in

Manager Zehrung has secured the
well-known Twin Brothers Lyman, who
will appear as stars in their own com
pany of supporting artists in Herbert L.
Lyman's irresistibly funny farce com
edy, entitled "A Merry Chase." The
play itself is thoroughly good, and with
the interpolation of all the new up-to-date
songs, music and vaudeville fea
tures, the entire entertainment goes
with a dash and a soap that is sure to
please all classes. They will appear
Friday and Saturday with Saturday
matinee, and their wide reputation for
doing all and more than is promised will
undoubtedly insure this company a rous

a gentle yet an unmistakable pressure.
He returned it with emphasis and
noticed the delicate pink color creep up
from her lace throat band to her cheek.
What a modest, sweet sort of girl, he
thought. Still, she clung to his hand,
and when he turned it slightly she held
it more firmly, almost imperatively.
There was an embarrassing pause.
Then she looked him full in the eyes
and said, coldly:

pointed, please?' Town Topics.
