Forbes-Robertson, who makes his furo
well appearanco at (ho Grand thcatro,
Friday, Doeember 24, plays; ho stamps
it to hig own fine mould. It bocomos
something guilder with "skyey tinc
tured irrain." No matter how mean
tho texturo that has como from the
playwright it catches from thnt con
tact a suggestion of a spacious world
and a chivalrous time and a note of
personal sincerity euriosly rnro on tho
present-day stage. Tho impression
which Forbes-Robertson has always
conveved is that of an actor who sees
the world beyond tho stugo and would
fain mnko tlie stage an instrument by
which to ennoble nnd dignify lifo.
From his iirst appearance on the
stage in "Mary Stuart" in 1874,
Forbes-Robertson has been associated
with plays and characters of tho bet
tor class, or did the dramataists fail
him, he has instilled into tho play or
the-chnructer that feeling of truth and
ronlness which has made notnblo his
entire career. His long association with
such players ns the ISancrofts, John
Mare, Minn. Modjeskn, Mary Anderson,!
lleury Irving and Kllon Terry, his!
earlv schooling under the illustrous
Samuel Phelps, his own productions of
classical and modern plays have logic
ally led to his present eminence as tho
.foremost English-speaking actor. "The
readiness is all." Forbes-ltobcrtson
wns ready when the opportunity came.

Oreat enthusiasm was manifested
among local Heventh Day Adventists
when they lenrned of the unusual pro
i gross made by their denomination dur
ing the pnst year, as given in a report
that has .lust been received from the

this movement had begun its work."
The report, says further:
'At the close of l!ll 4, tho total mem
bership was J 25,844, a gain during the
year of 11, or 0.83 'per cent. The
gain for 1!13 was 8180, or 7.1(1 per
cent, and thnt was tho' largest gain
ever recorded up to thnt time. The
gain for 1014 wus greater than that
reported for the preceding year by
H.1H7. Tho number of baptisms during
the year was 1 1 ,"!!. Tho net differ

the number of baptized is 3,712.
