The Londale Theatre company
closed a four nights' engagement at
the Biden opera house last night to a
good-sized audience. The play produced was Tolstoi's realistic five-act
drama, -'Resurrection." The play
is .not a very nice one, but it undoubtedly carries with it a strong
moral. MiBS Nellie Stark, the leading lady, portrayed the disagreeable
character of Katiisha Muslova in a
manner that left nothing to be desired from a realistic point of view.

Fo" fifty or sixty years large numbers of agricultural immigrants from.
European countries were attracted to
thc United States. This was in consequence of the opening up of large
districts of tha most valuable lands
in that country. It is believed
that £thc best lands of thc United
States have now been settled upon,
and Canada's,turn has undoubtedly
conic. The total number of Newcomers to Canada for the year 1903

Anecdotal
Andrew Lang tells tills story illustrating Die rigoroua nnd ascetic 'life of th?
Scots. "It seems that a laird, in thn year
1705, set out to join the Pretender, taking with him his eon, n youth of ah* tern
or so. One night this laird and his little
troop wero compellrd to slficp in thr
open, though it was snowing, und snow
lay deep upon the ground. Father nml
son kept together, and together they
prepared to turn in for the night. The
son. having wrapped his pluid about him.
ipade himself a pillow of snow, and was
about to lay his head on it when his
father kicked the -little cold white mound
away. 'This is too soon, truly,' he
growled, 'for you to indulge in 'luxuries.' "
A well-known theatrical manager, who
!■ distinguished rather for his business
ability than for his knowledge of literature, waa visited not long ago by an
aspiring playwright. He had with him,
he explained to the manager, the manuscript of a play based on one of Kdgar
Allen Poe's stories, which he Waa sure
waa destined to make a sensational hit
on the stage. The manager consented to
hear the play,- and listened with increasing interest aa the playwright read from
his manuscript. He was enthusiastic
when the end was reached. "That's line!"
he exclaimed—"fine! Now, I'll tell you
what I'll do: You and Mr. Poe come in
to-morrow and we'll talk this thing
over."
Count Tolstoi does not bear a very
kindly attitude toward the many curious
.idmirers who besiege his Russian home
n the hope of getting a glimpse of the
•Teat novelist. A party of visiting Am*
•rican tourists who called not long ago
o pny their respects were not, therefore,
ery cordially received. Tolstoi refuser!

"iitej to stand on his doorstep e^d let
imself be seen. One uf the via-fti.-*, now
TP.r, could not resist the teiupt-itiun ti

f'olstoi," she exclaimed effusively, ap
•roaching the author with outitiete.i,-'

Tolstoi, "to 'Dead Souls'?" The My as

A Southern clergyman hnd married i>

room asked, "How much yo' <■!)." li:*e fo'

That Sir Henry Irving is quite capable
of maintaining his dignity under somewhat trying circumstiimes is shown by
the following anecdote which is told of
the tragedian by Mr. C. R. Kennedy of
the "Everyman" company. On one occasion. Irving's company, having been
called to the theater for rehearsal, found
upon their arrival that they were considerably ahead of time. As Sir Henry
had not yet arrived, one of the actors in
the company, who was noted for his accomplishments as a mimic* proceeded to
give a lively End elaborate imitation of
Sir Henry's highly characteristic acting.
As he finished his demonstration, a well-
knowja voice came from the depths of
the darkened auditorium: "Very good,"
it iaid. "Very good indeed! So good,
in fact, that there is BO need for both of
us In this company."
Lincoln's greatest -vgal triumph waa
the acquittal of an old neighbor named
Duff Armstrong, who \..u charged with
murder. Several witne'aiiuA testified that
they saw the accused .commit the deed
one night about eleven n'clock. Lincoln
attempted no crosi-examinntion, except
to persnaiie them to leilcrate their statements and to explain Unit tbey were able
to sec the act distinctly because of the
bright mbqiiHghl. By several of the prosecuting witrniscs he pro\ed the exact
position and iijffl oi' tbe moon at the time
of the niurde;. The prosecution there
rested, and Lincoln, addressing the court
and the jury, announced that he had no
defence to submit exeept an almanac,
which would «buw that there was no
moon on that iiig-'t. Tile »tnu<*a nttor*
ney was paralyzed, but thc court admitted the almanac as competent ic-ii-

GOOD SERVICE is composed of two elements
—excellence of the work and promptness in

time is not good service; but the two combine to
make one of the most necessary, but hardest to obtain and often most expensive, requirements of the
twentieth century business man. That we have

A radical change from old methods and prices bus been miide by
^heToronto Daily News. Tbe eyes
of the newspvpor world have
been upon The News for the past few
months, during which time several'
departures have been made which
have given that paper a widespread
reputation for enterprise and originality. This latest move is to place
The News nt tbe price of 81.00 a
year by mail. Only a deep-founded
belief in the future success of The
News could Head the publishers to
make such n reduction in price.
Hut just ns the dollar magazine has
taken hold of the people, so, we venture to predict. The News will secure n vast and ever-increasing circulation, based not only on the popular' price nt which it is sold, but
mainly upon the intrinsic merits of
he paper.
Wc have arrangements concluded
which enables us to club tbe Toronto
News with our own paper at S2.'2f> a

—our semi-weekly giving you all
