Baker said last . week that there Is a
possibility of these plsns being changed
enough to 8ndrhe Bakerttes to the"l
Helllg nd; place- ths road shows 1rr the

definitely decided. The new theatre,
local managers say, Is no hallucination,

Within the next four weeks there is

Henrietta Cragsman will also appear in
several of her moet notable productions,
and "The Land of Nod" Is billed' for
three nights and a matinee. These pro
ductions will cause the comlo opera
stock to be discontinued for the nights
they are In the city.
The general public perhaps. Is una
ware of the great amount of work incl-dnt-to
the production of a play like
"The Eternal City," which is being put
on by the Baker-Stock company-this
week. It means hard work for. the
members of the cast, a great deal of
work for the-sreire-painterSr-unUmlted
labor on the part of the stage manager,
and the drilling of a number of "su
pers," most of whom are bard to. drill.
The lines of such a play are difficult
to learn, and yet they must be mem
orised by the actors while they are pro
ducing another play.- Last week the
Bakerltea rehearsed every morning,
studied every afternoon, gave a differ
ent production In tone and spirit in the
evenings, and got their sleep and their
meals whenever they got a -chance. Tet
