The school directors of Paupack
are fairly up against it in trying
to comply with the state school law.
that is, to establish a sufficient num
ber of schools for the education of
every individual above the age of six
and under the age of twenty-one.
Last year five schools were run for
forty-nine pupils while two of these
averaged only four pupils for the
term. In a sparsely settled district
like Paupack patrons should be
little more lenient unless they are
willing to pay a double school tax.
They should consider that It is lm
possible for the directors to run a
school for three or four children
even if they live a little more than
two miles from the nearest school
Our parents thought nothing of
walking even three miles to school.

In "Wildfire," the great racing
comedy by George Broadhurst, au
thor of "The Man of the Hour," and
George V. Hobart, who wrote Marie
CabiU's present starring vehicle,
"The Boys and Betty," a thorough
knowledge of tho details of racing
Is the basis of the much-talked-of
second act, and It explains why this
play has outdistanced other stories
of the race track in its realism.
, This Interesting second act shows
the trainer's quarters, a land of
mystery even to veteran race goer's.
The scene Is practically an exact du
plicate of a prominent trainer's
quarters at the leading race track
near New York City. It shows a
large apartment, with two double
barn doors. The room is located on
the left of the center of the build
Ing, which Is always divided into two
sections by an archway, leading to
the paddock, where the horses are
kept. The floor is carpeted, and on
the walls are pictures of famous
racers and a few old-fashioned
chromos. In one corner is a light
iron frame bed, and nearby, a bur
eau, washstand, a trunk, and a
small table on which are account
books and a pair of field glasses.
On the wall crossed American and
Irish flags are hung, not because of
patriotism and nationality, but a
custom as fixed as are the college
colors in a freshman's room. Then
there is the inevitable cupboard
containing bandages and lotions,
also a blanket rack in which the
trainer's fancy runs riot In the ar
rangement of gaudily hued blank
ets. Saddles and bridles are seen
In a closet off the room.
Pauline Hall, the famous Ameri
can beauty, who, like Lillian Rus
sell, has found comedy as much her
forte as opera, will appear as the
central character, the charming
widow, Mrs. Barrington, when
"Wildfire" is presented at the Lyric
on Monday, Nov. 8th. The produc
tion is faultlessly staged, and the
unusually capable company em
braces many well known players.
"THE HOUSE OF A THOUSAND
CANDLES," the wonderful play
which has been adapted from Mere
dith Nicholson's famous novel, will
be presented for the first time at the
Lyric, on Friday, Nov. 5th. Much
has been claimed for this drama as
it is said to be a wide departure
from anything given to the stage.
Originality certainly marks the story,
ana it would seem that in its stage
dress that rare qualification should
be Intensified. The company will
be headed by William Webb, who
was specially engaged for the nart
of "Bates, the mysterious servant."
Miss Hortense Clement, a rarely
preposessmg actress, will be the
vivacious and engaging Marlon De-
vereaux. Other members of the com
pany are Waldemar Burkhardt.
