At her reading (this) Saturday
afternoon at tho High school Mrs.
Frledewald will present Walter
Browne's "Everyworuan"; an Ingeni
ous modern allegory, fashioned after
tho mediaeval morality play like
"Everyman," and presenting in dra
matic form, the pilgrimage of Every
woman in quest of love. In her
dreams "Everywoman" had been a
flower, a star, a queen; and now the
dawn had a braver story to tell. She
was a woman! and to be woman
meant to be flower, star, queen and
more besides!
The "Three Twins" which comes
to the Lyric theatre on Monday,
Dec. 4, is essentially a laugh pro
moter and yet that is far from the
best part of it. Its many striking
novelties and catchy music would be
hard to excel. The "Cuddle Up a
Little Closer, Lovey Mine" number,
with Its seven ages of cuddling is
one of the prettiest stage pictures
over produced. The Yama Yama
song which created such a sensation
in New York at the Herald Square
Theatre where the "Three Twins"
ran for ten months, is another of the
many song hits; in fact, there are so
many good things in "ThreeTwlns"
that It would require too much
space to describe them. Of tho
many novel effects Introduced, tho
most important are the dancing
Yama Yama chairs, the Faco'O graph
and the gigantic Electric Aerial
Swing. This swing is tho largest
electrical effect ever staged and
weighs 5,000 pounds. It is illumi
nated with 2,000 electric lights and
while revolving around at a rapid
rate with six beautiful show girls in
baskets singing the "Cuddle" song,
presents a gorgeous spectacle.
The sale of seats opens Saturday,
Dec. 2, and It is advised that all who

Loud on New England's rock-bound
The ocean's wintry breakers roar,
And loud the snow-storm's Icy host
Beats 'round a famished Pilgrim's
Within, a reverend father's head
Is bow'd in thankfulness and love
For bits of harley, corn and bread,
That is vouchsafed them from
Merciful Father! we to-day,
For all thy bounties of the past,
Are not so thankful as were they
Who perished In the wintry blast,
Are not so thankful as were they
Who first observed Thanksgiving

a contract stating that I would
marry her as soon as I got to New

'wo'll furnish you a room, hire the

"Say, darling, you are not help

marked the five-day-old brldegrbom
to his bride who had by this time
joined her husband In tho parlor.
By way of helping him out she put
her arm around his neck. The re
porter heard several smacks. Ho
looked Into tho distance. As an old
married man he knew all about that,
and sympathized with them.

"A college friend of mine, re
sumed Mr. Price, "at Wesloyan Uni

Brooklyn, married us. I wired him
and he came down Jo tho ship and
married us on board ship. A com
mittee of twenty got up a ball for us
in board ship. The entertainment
committee arranged for sports in our
honor every day on board ship.
"We were married, Saturday, No
vember 25, at 12:15 p. m.," con
tinued Mrs. Price.
"My uncle and two of my cousins
were there to visit me when the ship
docked, and they were witnesses of
tho marrlago.
"I had quite a serious time," she
laughingly explained, "keeping the
girls away from Mr. Price. There
was a 'Merry Widow' on board, and
so between usve were kept vory
busy. I wasn't seasick.
"I always thought I'd like to do
something of that sort. I .always
thought I'd like to have a husband
with light hair. But all the men I
met had dark hair, and I had al
most given up hope until I met Mr.
Price. We are on our honeymoon
now. We're going to have a honey
moon for the rest of our life." Judg
ing from the way the "wheedling"
went on all through the Interview,
the reporter was sure they would.
"I cut out business for this," vol
unteered Mr. Price. "We can af
ford to cut out business to get a

singing 'The Holy City' when first
I saw her. The reporters bothered
