the thrilling situations have plenty of scope, and this was very satisfactory to the many who wanted to enjoy action and excitement. The first act runs HlKHtt half an hour, and starts In briskly without any descriptive dialogue. Nearly all the characters ‘‘speak foe tAcmselve*."
The first act is located In Florida, nnd ends with the hero, who had heen stunned by a rifle bullet, being chained to a burning house. Just after his wife had been abducted by the villain. Of course he Is rescued as the curtain falls. The remaining acts are located in f'uba, and are filled with stirring events, one concluding with the assistant villain's escape from a belfry and leap from a high cliff Into tho sea; another with a battle In a church, and the last with a contest between the stars and stripes and the Spanish flag, in which the former triuhiphs, once more saving | the hero. who was about, to be shot.

o come to th< mu beginning of the of the year when a theatergoing public city enjoying warm ms, and yet there bus lUfRplent number of his friends in town to crowd lh# theater at every performance.
It has been his custom to begin each season at the museum with a orand new play, and In continuance of this policy he last evening presented a fare** comedy entitled "The Wrong Mr Wright," written by Mr George H. Rroadhurst of Chicago. That the new work proved acceptable to the audience was made evident by frequent applause and almost !nrea.*ant lattg i-ter. After tho second act all the members of the company were recalled before the curtain, and at the end of the performance there was a hearty demand for a speech from Mr Reed.
* There were undoubtedly many In last evening's gathering who felt that the piece was unworthy the serious endeavors of so talented a comedian as Is Mr Reed and sincerely wished that they could see him In something better, but the great majority was content with the fact that he made them laugh. Mr Reed could make people laugh under almost any circumstance*, ana that he was so successful yesterday must he credited more to his own ability than to the skill of the playwright.
"Th» Wrong Mr Wright" Is merely a I Jumble of merry and improbable complications. The work contains many bright ' ideas and several genuinely funny sit-uatlons, but the ideas are not often I cleverly developed and most of the sltu-I a Hone are crudely constructed. Allow -I ances, however, must he made for the nec* «sary shortcomings of a first pro-I ductlpn, and It would be manifestly unfair to pass final judgment upon the piece until the author has had time f>>r th** revision which is generally found desirable after a first performance of a farce.
I The central Idea of the plot is novel, and considerable originality is evident In the drawing of the two principal character* but the minor incidents and tbc suUirdmate characters are conven-! tional. The dialogue Is generally bright,
I but old jokes are occasionally Intro-! duced.»
Th** author Is at his best when he Is most hilarious. When he attempts to J he sentimental or serious he Is not ef-i festive There Is a long love making scene In the lost act, which Is as stupid i uh It Is slily, arid could be dispensed with to the play's advantage.
Fortunately the character assumed by | Mr Reed never attempt* to be serious, j He Is content to be persistently jolly I and noisy. Indeed it Is In many ic-I spacts an excellent character, and lf given better surroundings might beconn I one of the most ncpuJar In Mr Heed's ! repertory. It is that of a wealthy man j who had been famous for his parsimony until he became interested In a pretty woman, when the lavishness of hi* gen-; eroslty * seceded all bounds.
This Individual had been robbed of i $50,000 by a trusted clerk. In hopes of capturing tho thief himself and thus save the reward offered, the merchant j assumes the name of Mr Wright. It so happens that the absconding clerk also asssuin*# the name of Mr Wright. Nu* j moron* complications result.
A fascinating young woman is engaged by a detective agency to take charge of the case. gilt- meets the wrong Mr Wright, and believing him the guilty man, strives to make him fall in love with her so that ha may confess his crime. Bhe has no ditticultv in making him luxe her. hut she also learns to love him herself, and. lf heart broken, until she learns that he is not the right Mr Wright, when happiness comes to herself aud everybody «lac who deserves It.
There are half a dozen other character*, un amusing English lordling, an heiress who wishing "to he loved for herself alone” changes places with her maid. an "unappropriated" spinster who long* to Ie- loved on any account, a hypocritical psalm singer and a U 8 artillery officer who falls In love with a supposed serving maid at first sight and offers to marry her the next day.
Mr Reed’s personal success was complete. He made the most of every opportunity and fairly carried the whole performance whenever lie was on the stage. Miss Rush wits beautiful, vivacious and wholly charming as the susceptible detective. Mr Coot* made a genuine hit a* the absurd English lord. It was one of the hest bits of character acting that this excellent comedian ha* ever given bete. That always reliable actor. Mr Tupper, made all that wa* possible of an uncongenial role, and the -ame is to b# said regarding Mrs Meyers.

A Boston actor heads the list of players, and that Mr Arnold Reeves had many friends In the audience was shown by his warm reception. The part of VV 11-llum Hope Is well suited to the romantic style of the artist, and he was the leading figure in several thrilling scenes.
The play has been seen In Boston lie-fore, hut since Its last production It has been Improved both In dialogue and in stage effects. In one sensational point in the play the heroine saves her father’s life by breaking through a large glare window, jumping to the branch of a tree and swinging many feet down to the ground. This scene was enthusiasts ally received.
Another scene that provoked great applause Is where the father and child are entombed In a mine and a huge water tank hursts, threatening to destroy them. The hero and villain fight in the fiend and virtue triumphs. Then there is an explosion In the mine and numerous other startling effects.
The cast Is made tip of competent people, Resides Mr Reeves, Air E. fitly Spangler, Mr Wm. L. Clark and Mr Cr as.

Grand Opera House.
Every one connected with the Grand opera house was feeling in excellent ppirltn yesterday, for at both performer, ops the big theater was crowded, The matinee especially attracted notice | on account of the large number of lf.die* in attendance. In addition to the attractiveness of the performance the-souvenirs were th** cav se of the pn a-, .once cl many of the fair k**x. Comp aition for the prix* s Is now begun in earnest. "The Golden Giant Min •" was the dramatic offering, The piece was dressed with an abundance of n« w set rn rv an i the mechanical effects wre ii.refully constructed and operated. The Cl rn pi ny was well up to the requirement* of their several roles, and especial mention Is due the Interpretations of Misses Winstan and Diamond, and Messrs Campbell. Boring and Chesley.
The vaudeville a linnet to the program Is ex client. John Kcrneil headed t U> list. Hi was filled to the brim with bright stories nnd comic songs galore. Particularly entertaining were his political allusions An set new to Boston w as contributed by O' urge H Adams and his talented family. - Lily and Tonlna Adams executed songs and dances In a clever manner, and there wi re solos, duets and quartets,
Camp. "the male Yaw," made his Boston debut and created a. most favorable impression. His voice I* clear and devoid of the falsi*:to quality, He sang several selections excellently and his costumes were magnificent. Finley and Touhey, the Irish piper and dancer, repeated their former success. ' Their act Is refined and highly entertaining. Mr Touhey draws forth sweet tones from the pipes and Mr Finley is otic of the best dancers now before the public.
People who enjoy clean, straight variety shows, and cannot be satisfied with the strong cards which proprietor Lothrop of the Howard Athi neum has provided for the patrons of this popular house, must he very hard to please.

In It Ju-sephine gives hep celebrated doll dance and George show* his nimbleness and grace In the terpsichorean line. One of the most popular feature# pf the bill probably was the song entertainment illustrated by the stereopticon and given by Bruns and Nina, assisted by Robert Berry, "The Life of a Fireman" provoked grent applause, and the pictures of the candldatis for the presidency and vice presidency, as they were thrown upon the screen, evoked the greatest enthusiasm
The country boy and country girl sketch, with ' Incidental songs and dances by the Mldgeleys, was an attractive number, as was also the burlesque operatic sketch of Canfield and Carleton. Tile feats of contortion by Carle, Gertrude and Blanche I'antzer created amazement, for they were among the most difficult ever seen here. Miss lentic LeVyne sang new song;:, as did also Miss Ida Howell, and the favorite vocalist, Miss Bertha Iitfiish, was among the singing contingent.

yesterday was the best, It Is probable ih*t not one of the thousands who were present during the day and evening cauld give an unhesitating answer. It was all so good that there was scarcely a perceptible let up In the ap-piarise during the entire 12 hours of continuous perform*ne*. Thoae who went there to laugh had ample excuse for so doing, and if there Is anything In the "laugh and grow fat" advice, Keith’s is a good place lo experiment. The ladles and children, who formed the bulk of tho afternoon attendance, divided their attention and favors between the little folks and the calf In the living pictures, tho "feeding the baby" scene In the cinematograph# and the little Rossows, the midget comedians’ In the variety.

The opening pan was a bright bit of comedy called “Shooting the Shoots," Introducing some clever specialties by several of the ladies nnd finishing with a grand cake walk. The closing burlesque was a condensed story of "Fra Dlavolo,” the handsome and shapely Clara Simonds playing the title role. A pleasing ballet was danced by eight of the young ladles.

Canadians Feel Sure That Their Yacht Will Win.
TOLEDO,O. Aug 24-Race declared off on account of the dead calm about Turtle light. Such in brief Is the result of the first day of the International yacht
Com Herriman and Capt Jarvis were both astir early this morning, and their crew* were out almost with the Fun, preparing for the struggle for supremacy, which really dbl not come off at all, but of which people saw enough to strengthen a growing conviction that the Canada Is going to at least worry the Chicago crew very greatly even though they may not win.
In a drifting match the Canada has already demonstrated her prowess, and has indicated that with a smart sailing breeze she probably will be the winner of the races, but should the stiff northeaster spring up It Is the conviction of old yachtsmen that the Vencedor will have a comparatively easy task distancing her British rival.
tine feature of the event has already heen pretty well established. With reference to the respective knack of sailing, the crew on the Canada are past masters, a* compared with Com Herriman and his crew, and such a statement I* by no means belittling the ability of the Yankee crew.
A more beautiful day for an out-door event could not have been prepared to order; a clear sky, cool, refreshing mr, and everything but what a yachtsman most desires—breeze. That was essentially lacking.
Yachting colors, miniature ensigns, flags nnd great sheets of bunting were everywhere in evidence. It was r„ typical gala day. Great throngs of people crowded about the docks and wharves.
Every one fortunate enough to own a pleasure yacht or launch was out with all the personal friends he could load aboard. Aa the long line of steamer* and yachts were towed out of the harbor find down the channel Into the bay, with streamers and ensigns flying, It was a sight that would have attracted the most ordinary artist.
Betting on the approaching event was carried on quietly, yet some heavy w ager* were laid on “even odds," A; about SLW the steamer Secor, carrying the press representatives, steamed away from Dewey's wharf, and Joined the fleet that was already moving down the bay.
One of the most picturesque sit ara yachts In the fleet was the Klgma. owned by Col 8. C, Reynolds, president of the First national bank of this city. On board this boat were the Judges.
A* the yachts neared the course they began to lay to as closely as their safety would permit.
The race* were scheduled to begin at ll o’clock, and there was no delay. It w is noticed the Chicago crew was very much exercised over the perceptible lack of a breeze such as the Vencedor requires to show her sailing qualities. At the fire of the starting gun the Vencedor after a short calm went down the line a* though possessed of a determination to at least secure an available and advantageous start, The Canada followed rapidly In her wake, and crossed about a length behind her competitor, blanketing her cleverly. Then both boats drifted across on the starboard tack.
The first leg of the course was to windward. Canada carried mainsail, gaff, Jib topsail, balloon staysail and Hying Jib; the Chicago boat carried about the same canvas, but her foresails Seemed diminutive beside those of her rival.
Tile wind was blowing less than three miles an hour, and It looked decidedly discouraging. At lpm both yachts were still drifting along on the first leg
of the course. When It was remembered that there were three legs of the course and these were to be sailed twice over, and that must be done within a time limit of five and one-half hours, the report soon spread over the city that there were strong probabilities that the thou-j sands of visitors would he required to I remain in the city at least a day longer I than they had anticipated.
I It took the yachts almost two hours I to cover the first half of one leg. It j was evident that nothing but u stiff breeze could shape up anything in the I nature of a race.

NEWTON, Aug 24— Sick and despondent, Miss Grace E. Thompson, aged 28, of Newtonville committed suicide this afternoon. Shortly after noon her lifeless body was found by members of her family hanging from the chandelier In the parlor of her home on Cahot st. Dr Talbot was hastily summoned, but could do nothing. Life had been extinct for some time.
The unfortunate young woman had carefully planned the rash act. and had carried It out with extraordinary nerve.
Standing on a chair In the center of the room she had knotted a long silk handkerchief about her throa* and had fastened the loose end to the chandelier, The chair was then pushed from under her and the knotted scarf allowed to do it^ work.

The big theater held a big audience, and the crowd gave many Indications that the melodrama pleased, for the closing tableaux of the first three act* wt-r*- redemanded midst storms of applause. The author has succeed* i in condensing t - pat bietle scenes to a minimum, and so the mild comedy and
as an organization were they given grertet recognition. Arling the high-toned colored people of Baltimore there is an exclusive "400.” (>f course this number is not to be found at the museum, but there are over 30 of them there and they are th" pick of the set. And such swells! Every one of the "Beau Brumrntls” looked as if he had just walked from a bandbox, and the box not a great way off, either. But the women! Such gown* and such head adornments — a regular kaleidoscopic sight In colored beauty.
Tin sc people had their own orchestra, and when the music started it set in motion • very foot belonging to the aggregation. The dancing was excellent, the singing was melodious and of great volume, and every scene presented was full of life and typical of the southern states.
Nothing could have given greater delight to the juveniles than the Shetland pony. Victoria, and her offspring, Brince or Wales, only 19 inches tall. Such cunning little equines have never been seen in Boston before. Albene and
as ever, and the interest In making the merry voyage down the watery inc I lie appears to be unabuti I. When the spectators arc not being amus"I win th.? “shooters" there is a band concert to interest them, and the monster of rho se.! t > gaze upon. This may not be evtct’y the sort of creature that the public mind has conjured up as th' sea serpent, but the animal Is an intel'tsiinz study, and no one should fall to avail himself cf the opportunity now afforded tor seeing him. The Chutes will remain open afternoon arni evening until further notice.
Next week the Columbia theater attraction will be Ital Reid’s melodrama "Human Hearts,” with the author and Bertha Belle Westbrook in the principal roles.

i very much in her element. She forged 1 ahead rapidly, and steadily gained on her adversary. The Vencedor could do practically nothing In the light breeze fallen to a dead calm, ondltion of affairs off Turtle light is almost unheard of, and it was surprising to the many local yachtsmen who have been over It so often.
After the start the Canada made a desperate but vain effort to again Mark'd Vencedor, hut Com Herriman had been caught slightly napping once, and lie did not propose to allow his wily Competitor another opportunity. Finally the Canada shot off in search of a breeze, while the Vencedor kept steadily to the northeast.
Yesterday the wind sprang up very suddenly, almost becoming a dangerous gale, and both yachts were waiting and hoping for a repetition of the occurrence, and kept on sail for all the possible advantage that might he derived from such condition; but it failed to materialize. Instead of the breeze increasing the wind died away almost entirely, and the lake became absolutely calm.
The yachts were almost as still as though they were anchored. At 2.40 both Canada and Vencedor got out their spinnaker booms, but set no sail. Still no breeze.
It soon became apparent that no hope could be entertained of nailing off the race today. When the Canada reached the point about one and three-quarter miles from the second stake, the Sigma turned and steamed down toward the dominion yacht, and gave three whistles, the signal for declaring the race off for the day.
Again turning on the back tack, the judges boat steamed over to near where the Vencedor was lying becalmed and slmiltCrly notified the Yankee craft, and the big fleet was soon In line and taking the backward track for the Toledo harbor. Visitors here generally are prepared to remain until the event is over if it requires a week’s skirmishing for lake Erie breezes.
Tonight a large fleet of racers are at anchor near the Plymouth yacht club, and several more are in the lower har bor and In Duxbury bay. In the upper harbor are the City of Chicago, I. F. Crosby, Marguerite, E. S. Cummings, Puritan, Henry Cummings, Ellipse, ll. H. Sears. Addle, R. C. Nickerson of the Cape Cod yacht club, Harold E., A. T. Bliss, Winthrop and Harbinger, B. F. Batche, Tacoma of Boston and Kulalie Hunt of Weymouth.
There is very little wind tonight, and many of the boats from Boston were unable to get here, hut will he In early In the morning. These races bid fair to be the hest ever held in these waters, and many people are coming, down specially to see them.
