Tho producer of "Freckles." A.
G. Delamater, has spared neither
pains or expense in staging this play
In tho most elaborate style. In tho
first place there Is an environment
In "Freckles" which very few plays
possess; chances for scenic investi
ture amazingly natural and pictures
que; and when It Is understood that
Delamater has brought It up to tho
highest standard of stage production,
both from a scenic point of view and
by means of a most competent cast,
thero Is a double assuranco of merit
Those who havo loved tho nameless
waif for his manly spirit, his light
wit, Irish lore, nnd his beautiful
songs; and who reverence "Tho
Swamp Angel" for her beauty and
her chaste, womanly character, will
ineot no disappointment In tho play,
And that's why "Freckles" Is prov
ing still a greater success as a play
oven than tho novel which has been
read by over a million souls. At the

from being drowned In the Fall
brook river near her home Wednes
day night and had It not been for the

child would have surely perished.
The little child happened to get
out of the sight of Its mother for a
few minutes and sauntered toward
the edge of the river, which runs
near the Maronel home. Several
children were playing on tho banks
of the stream, having a jolly time
throwing stones Into the water. The
little Maronel girl thought she
would like to participate and In
throwing a stone lost her balance and
fell into tho water.
Tho mother, who had been search
ing all around the house for the
child, heard the cries of the baby
and the splash of her body as she
fell but could not see her until she
got close to the edge of tho water.
The child had been swept down the
stream into deeper water and was
being sucked about In a small whirl
pool when the mother dashed In and
grasped the body of the youngster
who was then unconscious. The
child was being swirled about In wa
ter about five feet deep.
