There Will B? No Difficulty iu Locating
the Panama Channel
The lighting of the Panama canal
will be an interesting feature of the
great enterprise. The canal will be
li* ited throughout by automatic uiiat
tended lights eon having a distinct
characteristic. At the entrances and
through Gatun lake a double row of
about sixiy automatic acetylene-light
ed buoys will mark the channel. The
i-hannei will be defined further by JK»W
erful rapid Hashing range lights, one
-e; nt either end of each successive tan
geut. thus peril.iiting vessels going iu
either direction to take their range off
the bow.
The center lines of each range are
set far enough apart to enable the
largest vessels to pass each other in
Comfort. Through Culebra cut. or
whatever the proximity of the banks
permits, neacjns w ill be used instead of
buoys. The sides of the canal chan
nel will be marked by gas buoys about
every mil', with intermediate spar
buoys. Kadi oas buoy will consist of
a cylindrical, tloating, steel body, sur
mounted l>> a stee! frame, which sup
ports a light and lens at a hetgnt of

Mimtrel History
It was in 18 »7 that minstrelsy be
(•ame a popular form of amusement.
Then the first part consisted of two
end men, four singers, interlocutor and
an orchestra composed of a violin,
trombone, clarionet, bass liddle, guitar!
banjo and one of the singers played on'
the jawbone of an ox, and tlie olio
consisted of negro acts. The present,
generation of theatregoers do not re
member them by names, but have seen
them, nevertheless, in various forms as
the funniest part in many of Hoyt s
farces, and the present dav musical
comedies are easily recognized bv old
minstrel men as adaptations and 'rev o
lutions from those old negro acts. Un
til 1881 ther • were no white faces in
the minstrel show, but that, year John
W. Vogel introduced white faces in
the tirst part of a minstrel show of
which he was the manager, and onlv
a few years before that some manage"
introduced vaudeville acts in the olio.
Mr. Vogel s idea of modern minstrelsy
is to carry out as near as possible the
original. Adv.
"The Round-Up"
Every boy wno has thrilled at the
thought of the redskins he would kill
if he only had the chance, every mail
who lias ever been a boy, everv wom
an with a drop of red' blood' in her
veins, will revel in enjoyment of "The
Kound-l p, which will be the attra<'
tion at the Majestic Monday and
Tuesday and Tuesday matinee at the
Majestic, and to tho<e to whom the
sensational and romantic are nothing
1 lie Round-1 p will appeal ns a trulv
remarkable dramatic effort in its faith
ful portrayal of early life in the Far
West and as a marvelous theatrical pro
duction in the daring originality, mass
iyeness and beauty of its stage effects.
I The locale is southwestern Arizona
during the period when General Crook
was chasing Conchise and his braves
into the reservation at Fort Grant. A
i love story runs through the play, con
si nimating in happiness for the parties
most concerned. Adv.
Story plays—those which hare been
adapted from some popular novel—-
have been among the most interesting
productions the stage has made.
Among the most successful producers of
book plays in America to-day is A. G.
Delamater, whose "Quo Vadis'' and
"Beverly of Graustark" are well re
membered by hundreds of thousands of
theatregoers. Both were most interest
i 1 " K plays and clean ones—Delamater
j will have nothing to do with any other
; kind of production; above all. the play
i must be clean and respectable, so
j theatregoers will be pleased to know
' that he has arranged to produce Gene
Strat ton-Porter's delightful nature
play, "Freckles,'' which will be seen
' at the Majestic next Thursday, matinee
and night. * Adv.
"The Charming Widows"
The Majestic, will present as its bur
lesque attraction next. Friday, matinef
and night, "The Charming Widows.''
The company is headed by Eddie Dale,
a clever German comedian, and he is
i surrounded by a company of capable
| singers, dancers and fuir-makers. In ad
| ilition to the regular performances,
i there will be two special features,
| "The Dame of the First Sin" and
•Princess Ka in "The Mystery of the
At the Orpheum
"Teddy" Roosevelt via the Lew
Dockstader route will leave the Or
pheum to night. So will that uproar
iously funny comedian, Johnny Dooley,
and pretty Vvrtte Kugel and Lucy Git
lette, the clever lady juggler, and !i
wealth of other good things. For next
week the management is announcing
the longest list of well-known stars thai
have appeared on any one bill this
season. They are Sophie Barnard, the
celebrated prima donna; Lou Anger,
the greatest exponent of German come
dy in vaudeville, who has a wonderful
comedy monologue on war; Mrs. Gene
Hughes, late star of "Youth," whs,
with a fine cast of players, will oflV
her newest comedy vehicle called
"Lady Gossip;" John Henshaw aui.l
Grave Avery, of legitimate musical
comedy, now olfering .1 bright and
breezy skit of song, dance and patter
in vaudeville, and the Six Military
Dancers, three young women and three
youths, in wonderful exhibitions 01'
hard and sjft shoe dancing.
Elaborate costuming and beautiful
staging helii to make their turn a
"sight" act and well worth headline
honors also. There will be two other
Keith hits of merit grouped about
these big attractions. A glance over
the booking for next week would come
pretty near convincing one that Wil
iner & Vincent had outdone themselves
in the way of sending good things to
Harrisburg. Adv.
At the Colonial
Nothing could speak louder for the
popularity of the improved vaudeville
policy now in operation at the Colonial
than the daily increase in attendance
there. Four acts of high-class vaude
ville, any one of them of sutlicient mcr
it to appear on "big time" programs
is being appreciated by patrons of that •
