"Tltmngwl Goods"
The history of t'he flrst production
of Eugene Brieux's great sociological
drama, '"Damaged Goods," which is
at the Majestic this afternoon and
evening has no counterpart in the an
nals of the American stauv. After itn
initial production in Paris ten years
ago, tho (French masterpiece had lain
practically neglected until a Pennsyl
vania legislator. Senator Flyun, of
Pittsburgh, found a copy of it in a
book store and upon reading it, was
impelled to introduce a bill in the leg
islature providing for a health certifi
cate with a marriage license in his
State. While the bill was pending,
Senator Flyun met Richard Bennett,
tho actor, and urged him to road
" Damaged Uoods." This was two
years ago and since that time Mr. Beu
. not t has devoted most of his waking
hours and all of his dreams to the pro
duction of this drame.—Adv.*
"Robin Hood"
"Robin Uood," the celebrated
comic opera by Messrs. de Kon eu and
Smith, will be the offering at the Ma
jestic next Wednesday afternoon aud
evening. This opera will be presented
by the de Koven Opera Company an
organization composed of grand opera
singers. In thin notable cast of vocal
artists first mention should 'be given to
Ivy Scott, i.he charming young Austra
lian prima donna, who made such a
success at the Century Grand Opera in
New Yo«rk. Mien Scott possesses a re
markable 'lyric soqirano voice of dra
matic quality, and sings the role of
Maid Marian with an artistic beauty
of the highest praise. Tho title role
will be sung by Harold Blake, whose
tine tenor voice is admirably suited to
the part. F. J. McCarthy, who originat
ed the part of the crying general in
''The Merry Widow," will play the
part of Friar Tuck. Mr. McCarthy's
performance of the lovnble old monk

will coine to the Majestic theatre, Sat
urday, matinee and night, March 13,
in a beautiful production of Verdi's
immortal masterpiece "11 Trovatore"
the world's most tuneful, picturesque
So much has been said of the great
artists that comprise tho Boston Eng
lish Opera Company and so well known
is the opera of "II Trovatore," that it
seems almost useless to go into details.
However, as there are many people
who have a mistaken idea in regard to
grand opera, it may not be amies to
say a few words on the subject.
Of all the world's operas "II Tro
vatore" is t'he most popular and cer
tainly the most tuneful, Many of the
best airs in the leading comic operas
are taken from its tuneful melodies.
Almost every street organ deipPnds up
on "II Trovatore" for its existence.
The anvil chorus is one of the most
beautiful numbers ever put on any
stage. This setting represents a gypsy
camp, located in an old ruin in the
mountains. In the clearing are numer
ous anvils, used in making the armor

to be just the sort of a vaudeville bill
that Harrisburg cares for most and ac
cordingly the audiences were of un
usual size. A bill calling in many
vaudeville treats is being announced
by the management for next week. Tho
festivities are interesting in many re
spects and all is greatly enhance'd by
Miss Trixie Friganza, tfhe celebrated
musical comedy star, who stands in tho
lead of them all. Miss Friganza ranks
with the most important bright liights
that have been exploited at the Or
pheum. She comes in a class with

However, this will be Miss Frigan

za 's offering consists of a routine of
clever song hits, calling in special
scenery and a gown for every song.
Another interesting player on next
week's bill will be the first local ap
pearance of Helen Grayce in va/ode
ville. Miss Grayce has a big following
here as a stock actress, and she will
undoubtedly receive a big welcome
from her admirers at the Orpheum next
week when tfhe and her capable com-'
pany present a sparkling comedy call

written by Miss Una Clayton. A num

Lesson X.—First Quarter, For
March 7,1915.
Text of the Lesson, I Sam. ix, 17, to x, 1.
Memory Vara*, x, I—Golden Taxt, I
Pat. ii, 17—Commentary Prepared by
Rev. O. M. Steerne.
These three chapter*, in which we
find today's lessou (vlll to X), tell a sad
yet beautiful and wouderful story, the
aad part beiug Israel's rejection of God
aa their kluj; and their desire to be
like other nations; the wouderful past.
His most gracious dealings with them
und. the beautiful part, the way Ho
overruled ordinary events to bring to
Samuel the right man. it seems strange
that Samuel, knowing so well KIK#
fnllure to govern his sons, should have
failed himself In the same way (chapter
vlll, 1-5), but perhaps some wbo may
rend this are not qunlltied to throw
any stones. The desire of the people
for a visible kiug. like all other nations,
hurt Samuel, for he was now an old
man aad had all his life judged thorn
righteously; but, knowiug that he was
only the Lord's representative, he told
Him nil about It, as we should always
do In all things. The Lord reminded
Samuel that he was not the rejected
one. but that the peojjle had rejected
lUm and that Samuel was only sharing
Ills rejection (chapter vlll, C-9>. It Is
so still, for our Lortl Jesus counts all
treatment of His messengers as dona
to Himself (Matt. x, 24. 25, 40).
The I.ord told Samuel to heed their
request, but to protest rfnd show them
what manuet* of man the king would
be. This ho did In the six times "He
will take" of chapter vlll, 10-18. Not
withstanding the warning the people
insisted that they must have a king.
Samuel told the Lord their decision,
and He told Samuel to make them n
king (chapter vilL 19-22).
Whether it be in answer to our right
or our wrong requests, it is often His
way to do beyond our desires, and so
Fie selected for them the finest looking
man in all Israel—a choice young man,
none goodlier and head and shoulders
taller tbun any other (chapter ix, 1, 2;
x, 23). Samuel did not need to look
for him nor to have any anxiety as to
finding the right man. for the Lord
toW him In his ear one day, "Tomorrow
alxuit this time 1 will send thee a mun
out of the land of Benjamin" (chapter
ix, 15, 16). I like that expression "told
him In his ear." for it Is a great thing
to have an our for God, an anointed
ear to hear Ills voice. Ills only. The
commonplace events which the Lord
used to bring the unsuspecting man to
Samuel are fully told in chapter ix,
3-14, and. if He thus wrought for an
unbelieving man and a rebellions peo
ple, how much more will He work on
behalf of His own, who truly desire to
please Him! (Rom. Till, 32; lsa. xlviii,
The 'special lesson portion assigned
us today begins with Saul approaching
Samuel by the direction of the young
maidens whom he met going out to
draw water. How many Bible inci
dents there are associated with women
drawing water, nnd how these maidens
must have rejoiced a few days or
weeks later that they had been used
to direct the king to Samuel! There Is
a lot of comfort in the assurance that
God worketh all things after the coun
sel of His own will and a whole lot
more when wo are willing to have Him
work In and through us the good
works He has prepared for us (Kph.
i, 11; II; 10*. As Saul drew near to
Samuel again the anointed ear hoard
the Lord's whisper: "Behold the man
whom I spake to thee of! This same
shall reigu over ray people" (verse 17).
The words "Behold the man!" make
us think of Zecb. vl, 12, and John xix,
5, 24, the God-man. the King who shall
yet rule over n* Israel and over all na
tions forever. As the maidens were
used to direct Saul to Samuel, so may
we all be used to direct many "who
soevers" to Him who Is ready to save
them and share His kingdom with
Now we find Saul In the kind haniH
of Samuel at a surprise party, where
he hears wonderful things which he
never expected to bear and which s'.l
came to pass. He is the most honored
guest. Samuel, knowing that God would
do as He had said, had made every
preparation and had Invited these thir
ty people to meet him. After the feast
Samuel communed with Saul, then
cared for him overnight, in the morn
ing again communed with him alone.
The servant, having passed on, showed
him the word of God, kissed him and
anointed him captain over the Lord's
Inheritance. Saul's humility (verse 21)
reminds us of that of Gideon (Judg. vl,
15), and well would It have beeu for
him If he had continued thus humble.
N<jfe also his wise conduct toward his
enemies In chapter x, 27, "He held his
peace," or, as in the margin, "He was
as though he had been deaf." Com
pare Ps. xxxvlil, 13.
Chapter x, 7, Is one of the most rest
ful verses I ever found, "Do as occa
sion serve the*', for God Is with thee,"
And the context teaches me that each
morning, as I start the day, the Lord
knows every one I shall meet and all
that shall corao my way. He orders all
the circumstances, and I have only to
(It In, not counting my own will or
pleasure, but. seeing His hand in every
thing and saying a hearty "Even so,
Lord." aim to glorify Him by patience
and long suffering with joyfulness. As
loseph was able to say to those cruel
brethren. "Not you. but God," so m((y
we by His grace (Gen. xlv, 8).
Origin of the Name Automobile.
The word automobile comes from
two words, one Greek and the other
Latin. The two words are auto nnd
mobile. The former la derived from
the Greek autos. meaning self, and the
latter from the Latin mobilla, abverb,
movable. This is originally derived >
from the Latin verb moveo, moverp,
movl, motus, meaning to move. \Ve
are unable to say who first suggested
the name for self propelled vehicles.
