excellent one, every member of the
company appearing at his and her
best. The special scenery and stage
settings were of the highest order,
and for three acts the audience
thoroughly enjoyed the fine pres
entation. In the last scene, of the
third act, the strongest in the play,
Miss Tucker as "Quccna" held the
audience spell-bound for fifteen min
utes in as powerful a piece of acting
as could be witnessed. In this act
"Quecna" becomes hysterical and
finally goes mad, and when the cur
tain fell with Miss Tucker prostrate
upon the stage, the 'entire audience
joined in a "curtain call" when the
curtain arose the lady was seen sup
ported by Messis Donald and Butler,
swaying as if to fall. The audience
was not fully aware of the real facts
until the orchestra had played a
third overture ,and the curtain arose
on a very pretty stage setting, pre
pared for the last act. Mr. Bell ap
peared and announced that it would
be impossible to finish the play as
Miss Tucker had completely collaps
ed, and all efforts to revive her were
of no avail. He announced that
tickets would be passed out at the
door for tonight's performance and
the audience filed out regretting the
sad ending of a grand performance.
Physicians were hurriedly called and
at a late hour Miss Tucker was some
what quieted and will no doubt be
able to appear tonight. The cause
of the collapse is assigned to the
strain of continued rehearsals, and
the strong effort necessary to pro
perly sustain the character.

today only for that wonderful medi
cine. It loosens up a cough quicker
than anything else, and cures lung
diesase even after the case is pro
nounced hopeless." This most reliable
