The auditorium itself is entirely
novel in its srraugauiont The private
boxes of tho Frothinghain, luatuad of
being itnffy bnnohei of overwrought
doc ration are really part of t!i main
auditorium, just separated BtitUo lantly
to give occupants a sense of privacy
Without sacrificing either their view of
the stage or that of the main aud
ience, in passing it should be
said that this theatre u one of the
really few hoUtei in America which,
so fur as could be learned bv careful
personal tact prosecuted In every uoo'c,
crook and comer, has lit.irally u 111
ilweirable seats. Therj ie not a spot iii
main Hoar, boxes. Unje.s or either bal
cony which fails to command a direct
and comprehensive viw of the stag
! and of .nl the actors upon the shue
In the arrangement of the logei,
over the boxes and in froat
of the balooules, lowered s as
not to Interfere with spectators sitting
on the main rows, tins new theater
bes another point of originality that
last evening attracted mnob favorable
comment Ail these logeu are supplied
wiiii handsome parlor chain and en
circled by nickeled railings, tiie lust
rum shiue of which, mingling with the
yellow,salmon mi l old gold buss of the
ceilings and the inbdoed purple of tiie
draperies gave an agreeable variety
and sparkle to the general scone.
tho fronts of the boxes, logss, orchestra
circle, balcony and gallery, It should be
Mid, are richly upholstered in plneb,
ir.d surmounted by railings of nickel.
All rows on tho tnsin floor, an 1 in the
first balcony the first two rows are
equipped with magulBceutly uphol
stered chairs, while the remain let of
the first balcony seats are comfortable
folding opera cbairt,wltboat the uphol
stering, In tne upper gallery, the
benches nrs so arrange! M to prevent
one tier of occupants from interfering
in any manner with either theoomf rt
or the view of oueupunU of any other
tier.
BOXES, LCiiliS ANI HA1L1N03.
I The private boxes and upper logos
are beautifully draped in terra colt i
Velvet, richly trimmed with heavy
iringe. cor Is nnd tassels. A feature of
: much beauty u the wide and spacious
orchestra pit, which is cut off by a
partitiou surmounted by a nickeled
railing. The entire auditorium is eov-r-rsd
with stereo relief, not an inch of
plaster b-tug nsed for the walls ur ceil-
-iiigs. In tho matter of colors, as tins nl
revlybeen remarKsd, too much cannot
be s.'J. The hues employed are cream,
buff, srflmon. copper and gold, artistic
ally emphasized ut various p lints with
gold and copper bronzes. Especially
notable ars the graceful and pleasiug
furv8 of the gallery railings, the
superior arc'.iways of the main ceiling,
the delicately twined draperies and the
beautv of the grand proscenium arch,
with the rich decorations, ornuuiintii-
( tions, columns, brackets and the other
innchmsnts or tne uooriin design,
giving to the characters upon the Stags

JAFIS GALLAGHER'S AWFUL FALL.
Dropped a Distr.nce of 250 Feet into
a Shaft and Lives to Tell
His Experience.
James Gallagher, whose house is on
McDooougn avenue, Providenoe, vej
teid iy fell down the shaft of the Ln
get's Crck mine, a distance of 2jU
feet, and Itrauge to say, still lives.
He was employed at the mine and
just before the socidont, ascended the
shaft to the surface. While the car
riage wis at tne bottom of the shaft
l.e iu some tiiiai countable manner took
the headlong plunge below, although
the safety OSgO Was in its usual place
at the to;), and how he could have got
by it remains a mrslery to all.
The most remarkable faet connected
with tho acoident, however, Is thai in
stead of Icing crushed into an iinrec
ogniz ible m iss, s one would suppose
would have ben the case, not a single
bone In tho man's bo ly ws broken, al
though he was seriously bruised, sus
taining a sev-re ecali Wound from
c iniug in oontact Willi the si le of the
shaft, together with othar injuries,
However, it is tho opinion of the at
tending physiolan, Dr. Sullivan, that
Mr. Gallagher will In time recover
from the effects of his miraculous fall
