Floyd Graham, tho young mnn who
drives tho wagon for tho California
Bakery, had a very narrow escape from
lcslng his life this morning, under' tho
wheels of the southbound overland
train. Young Graham was driving up
Mission street, nnd, as he was a little
behind time with his route, was not
keeping a very sharp lookout when ho
crossed tho track, and failed to notice
tho train, which was just pulling away
from tho station, until ho was half way
across tho track. Ho then reachod for
tho whip, but was a littlo too late, and
tho engine just brushed tho hind wheel,
overturning tho wagon, dishing , tho
wheel, and breaking tho two rear
springs. Tho driver and horses es
caped without so much ns a scratch, J
tho wagon was quickly righted, and
very littlo damage was loft to show
that a horriblo accident was so nar

"Shoro Acres," tho most popular of
American plays now being presented
on tho English-speaking stngo will bo
given a fine scenic production at tho
Grnnd this ovoning.
Tho scenes of this beautiful comedy
drama aro laid near Bar Harbor,
Maine, and tho characters introduced
in tho play nro all drawn from life and
represent in n most natural manner tho
customs and habits of their environ
ment. Tho plot of "Shoro Acres" is
nn exceedingly slmplo ono nnd its sto
ry is almost entirely freo from compli
cations. Yet this very simplicity is
an clement of strength and when tho
final curtain falls you will not marvel
at tho remarkable success achioved by
Mr. Home's masterpiece. There aro
four acts and two tableaux in tho piny
and spoclnl scenery adds to tho effec
tiveness of tho presentation. Possibly
tho most sonsntionnl opisodo is tho
lighthouso sccno thnt closes tho third
net, but tho most interesting net is
tho closing ono of tho play nnd its
final scono has been warmly commended
by every critic in the land. Tho pres
ent company is virtually tho samo that
hns nppenrod in "Shoro Acres" for
tho past ten years nnd includes many
players of recognized ability.
Tho musical event of tho season will
bo tho presentation at tho Grand next
Monday evening of "A Chincso Honey
moon." And in speaking of it, "A
Chincso Honeymoon" continues to go
merrily nlong in Now York nnd othor
principal Eastern cities. Tho critics
of each city nro satisfiod thnt tho com
pany appearing in that particular city
in the best of tho twin organization
now on tour. That is tho strongest
kind of n compliment for the delight)
ful musical comedy. It is tho most
conclusive nrgument in support of Wil

play's tho thing," nnd Inter ono nuon-
