Fighting Favors tho Russians
Petrograd, Deo. 20. —An official
communication issued bv the Russian
staff in the Caucasus says: "The fight
ing with the Turks, who liad coucou-
trated considerable forces in the direc

for lis. We havo repulsed the attacks
of the enemy near the village of
Alagoez where the Turks had a great

Christmas Day, matinee and night, |
"A Pair of Sixes."
Every afternoon and evening, high
class vaudeville.
Daily continuous vaudeville and pic
"A Pair of Sixes"
It is not often that a pair of sixes
wins the " big pot," but it has proven
so in the case of Edward Peple's now
farce of that title, which will be seen
at the {Majestic, Friday, matinee and
night, as the Christmas attraction. It
has been running for nearly a year in
New York, at the Longiacre theatre,
and has now started on a long run in
Chicago. It can safely be stated with
out fear of contradiction, that no play
of this kind has ever received such
swperlative praise, from the New York
critics. Many of t'he metropolitan writ
ers iboldly declared that it was a "riot
of fun," and made no apololgy for in
dulging in this oft-abused phrase. It
will be presented hero by a very excel
lent comipany, including Bertha Krity
hoff, John Kearney, Nellie MtoHenry,
Kendal "Weston and Caroline Leonard.

At the Orpheum
The Orpheum begins its yuletide
celebrations to-day. A special holiday
bill will be introduced there. Santa
Clans will be there with gifts for the
children, and the play house will begin
to take on a festive hue with its
Christmas dress of evergreens. "The
Dream Pirates," a delightful one-act
musical comedy with a fine east, two
sets of special scenery, and any amount
of tuneful frolic, wall lead the holiday
vaudeville 'bill. Hart MwHugh, who sent
"The Lawn Party" to the Onpheum
a few weeks ago, is also the producer
of "The Dream Pirates." Pretty and
fascinating Flo Bert is featured in the
cast. She in turn has the support «f
four or live principals and a chorus of
youthful beauties, who will inject the
catchy song hits.
The headl'iner for the "kiddies"
will be Derkin's animal novelty, called
'' A Busy Day in Doigvillo.'' Here is a
comedy animal act that is a veritable
scream from start to finish. The dogs
and monkeys have a little town of
their own ami the excitement that hap
pens in the 'borough in the twenty min
utes they are on the stage, is scream
ingly funny. Also Josephine Davis,
after a tour of the would returns to the
Orpheum after a five seasons' absence.
'Phis charming song bird wild have some
interesting songs and some interesting
gowns, and she will have the assistance
of one Billy OelleT at the piano. Emmet
Devoy and company will be seen in a
comedy called "His Wife's Mother"
that belongs in the headline cites ailso.
Other names of the Orpheum's Christ
mas bill include Dolly and Mack; Lew
is and Norton, and Nolan and Nolan.

At the Colonial
The Colonial inaugurates a bill to
day that looks to be of unusual calibre.
Walter D. Nelanil and company, who
were members of the "Detective
Keen" playlet seen in Harrisburg be
fore, will present a surprise comedy
sketch as one of the most important
attractions. Norman and Clare, declar
ed to be vaudeville' cleverest children,
appear on this bill also. The Nikko
troupe, famous exponents of oriental
skill; and Von Dell, in impersonations
of famous composers and musicians,
complete the vaudeville bill. Patrons
of the Busy Corner must bear in mind
that a Christmas Country Store will
be a pari of the Wednesday evening
performance. The management is
warning patrons to get to the play
house early, for the shopping promises
to be heavy, and the presents very,
very fine. adv. * # * "
