: HORSE TRACY RODE
And Guns He Used Claim to Have
Them in Boston in Theatrical
The Tracy and Merrill show has
reached Boston, and in the repro
duction, , the penitent 1 a r y
at Salem, and other Oregon scenes
incident to the escape come : in : for
a lot of free advertising. The play
is-produced at the Grand Opera
House,' and in spite of the fact that
the smart set taboos 1 it, each performance-is
Li attended by great
crowds. An advertisement of the
play in the Boston Herald is as
follows:, i. , - :- . : 1 -
"Commencing - tomorrow , night,
the one sensational success of the
season,- Tracvi the Outlaw. -.; Percy

be introduced and . used to illustrate
the way that the noted fugitive" was
hunted. A number of genuine
attested souvenirs of Tracy are own
ed by ; Mr -Williams and will be on
exhibition, during the . engager
ment."., W . -"
A preliminary write-up of j;the
play also in the Herald, is as
follows: .. ;
1 "'it Tracy," the outlaw ! is " really
fdead, if it was jreally his-body that
was found in "the no w. famous- wheat
field in the state of Washington it
will be bard to convince people of
the fact after they nave witnessed
a performance, of "Tracy, tbe Out
law," which will hold the boards
at the Grand : Opera : House this
week." " 'Manager Williams ' with
characteristic energy, bas hot spar
ed any expense in fitting 1 up the
production'or engaging a strong
company. - The scenery has been
painted especially by P. Dodd Ack
erman from photographs of actual
scenes wherein the famous outlaw
moved during his great chase across
two states, and many things used
by Tracy will be used on the stage.
This is a feature of the performance.
A horse, one that was stolen and
ridden by Tracy, has been pur
chased by Mr Williams from a
Western trader, and will be used by
the mimic Tracy in one of the most
exciting scenes in the play. " Also
the strap that bound the wounded
man's leg when he made his last
stand in the wheat field, and two
guns discarded by -Tracy r when he
forced the farmer to buy him new
ones, will, also be used. The play
is full of exciting incidents. There
is a hold up of an express train and
the blowing .opeit' of a Wells-Fargo
safe in the car, and an exact picture
of the interior of the Salem peni
tentiary and the escape of the out
law, and last of all, a perfect pro
duction of ithe .-very , spot ,in the
wheat field where, Tracy made Ms
stand, and h'e long chase .was end
ed. Asnovel duel ,with sledge ham
mers something , never j before ; at
tempted on any stage will add
zest to the, .performance .To those
who suppose that Tracy really .com?
miited suicide there is said: ;to be a
surprise -in, stpre and it comebefore
the final curtain." - ' : . - t

ascribed to other causes, The
short'grass of last summer, similar
conditions during the - fall, the
presence of four inches of snow now
m some places m the hills to the
west; high water,, all these 'and
other influences have conspired to
produce a mortality --considerably
above the average in herds. . It is
said that the acreage of winter
wheat is less than usual and ; that
feed from-that source" is compara
tively scarce. The mortality ex
tends in a measure to goats.
