THE LEGITIMATE DRAMA.
It is often said by those who ob
serve humanity superficially that the
public will not in these end of the
century day's support that type ot
the drama known as the legitimate.
Actors who have tried to star and
failed, dramatic critics, whose pro
fession has rendered them cynical
and placed them out of touch with
ie thought of real people, and those
who follow the sayings of these two
classes of men, often declare that
the taste of the modern public is low.
They cite the fact that such and
such great star has failed in trying
to carry a legitimate company on an
extended tour, or that such and such
a famous actress . has ruined her
health and depleted her purse in
seeking to give remote sections of
the country Shakespearian drama.
So often were statements of this
character made, and so many in
stances of failure could be pointed to
that a portion of the people came to
believe it true.
They failed to consider, however,
that the failures were due not to the
public lack of appreciation of the
star's abilities, but to the fact that
the supporting company and the
staging were inferior. It is odd how
many great actors haye made the
mistake of supposing that their own
greatness will carry the whole com
pany.' The public wants to see all
the plays well done, but it especially
wants to see. the legitimate' well
done, or done not at all. A light,
modern society play may be indif
ferently presented and still -give
some amusement to a cultured audi
ence, but a legitimate comedy or
lrama does not admit of inferior
presentation. The best is" all that is
good enough for it. In the hands of
poor actors, although the leading
roles may be well cast, a legitimate
play is to be shunned, and theater
goers act upon this rule. Presented
with poor support, there is nothing
in the world so dreary to modern
senses as the legitimate; well pre
sented, there Is nothing more at
These things have been proven by
the last tour of Henry Irving in this
country. It was not his name alone
that crowded his houses, but the fact
that he was equally conscientious in
his productions on the road as in his
home theater. .He demanded of his
.people the best. His support was of
actors. His plays were staged in the
highest of the play producer's art.
Again were they proven by the all
star presentation of "The Rivals'
some years since, when the best
actors in the land -took minor parts
at great salaries. The brief tour of
the company was a tremendous . suc
cess financially, as well as artistically,
And now, again, are they being
proven by the tour of the James-Xidder-Warde
company has played from New York
through the Atlantic coast stales,
through the south, through far away
Texas, through California,' and is
now in the Pacific northwest. Every
where, although prices at the theaters
have been advanced, the houses have
oecn packed, in every way the
people have shown their appreciation
of the legitimate' as presented by
Louis James, Kathryn Kidder,
Frederick Warde, and their support
ing company. Sheridan's exquisite
old comedy, "The School for Scan-'
dal," and Shakespearian plays have
formed the sole repertoire, and the.
people have forsaken with delight
the farce comedy and the modern
'society play to see them.
AH of which goes to show that it
is the taste of the average theatrical
manager and not that of the public
that lias degenerated in recent years.

Deafness Cannot be Core.
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear
There is only one way to cure deafneep
and that is by constitutional "remedies
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
dition of the mucous lining of the Eus
tachian Tube. When this tube is in
flamed you have a rumbling sound or
imperfect hearing, and when it is en
tirely closed, Deafness is the result, and
nnless the inflammation can be taken
out and this tube restored to its normal
condition, hearing will be destroyed for
ever; nine cases out of ten are caused
by catarrh, which is nothing but an in
flamed condition of the ' mucous sur
faces. We will give One Hundred pollars for
any case of Deafness (caused by catarrh)
that cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh
Cure. Send for circulars ; free.
