"The Arrival of Kitty."
Know what repeaters are? One
Is the political breed that votes ear
ly and often; another Is the theatri
cal variety which may not get there
early but does get there often.
"The Arrival of Kitty" Is of the lat
ter class, which is creditable and
desirable. As a repeater the Nor
mnn Lee Swartout play has a repu
tation which dwarfs into insignifi
cance that of any waul voter In the
land. The public is responsible for
it. It made "The Arrival of Kitty"
a repeater, and still insists that it
shall continue its course, and the
public is not to be denied. So
this play will keep on repenting
this season as it did last, prospering
therein and repaying its instigators
the length and breadth of the conti
nent with the entertainment it af
fords whenever it comes. We in this
place wll lbe participants in this en
tertainment, and joyous ones, for
"The Arrival of Kitty." with Hal
Johnson as Billy Brown, will be at
tno Lyric on Friday. May 5. when
everybody will be on hand to give
it tne support and encouragement it
Justly deserves.
"The Confession," James Hallock
Reld's great moral play that has
created so much talk in New York
City is now playing in its third
month at the Bijou Theatre. The
play while dealing with a subject in
a reverent, intelligent manner, does
not depend upon that alono for its
largo audiences of interested specta
tors, Its powerful dramatic situa
tions, knit together with gripping
power, hold Protestant. Jow and
Catholic alike, breathless to tho end
of the play. However, it is the only
theatrical amusement that members
of tho Catholic faith havo been ad
vised to attend during Lent. The
author deserves immense credit for
the reverent and Intelligent manner
In which ho has handled his play.
Jnmes Foust, Altoona, was last
Wednesday reappointed Dairy and
Food Commissioner for a term of
four years and Governor Tener will
send his name to the Senate for
confirmation on Monday.
Mr. Foust's reappointment was
made because of the excellent work
ho has done at the head of the di
vision, which has made rapid pro
gress since he took hold and which
is now known throughout the coun
try. Mr. Foust, who was formerly
chief of police of Altoona and coro
ner of Blair county, has been con
nected with the division since 1900,
when he was made a special agent.
Governor Stuart made him commis
sioner in 1907 and his administration
has been characterized by vigor and
advance in methods. He was tho
author of numerous laws to bring
about purity of foods and the credit
