Second Performance of Ben Greet
Players; "MUck Ado" Also En-
joyed by Packed Theater
Under perfect weather conditions
and a large audience the Ben Greet
woodland players made their initial
appearance of the season yesterdoy
afternoon playing "The Comedy of
Errors." The characters were all well
taken, and the similarity of the two
Antipholus brothers, with the mirror-
like resemblance of their twin ser-
vants, the Dromios, was so well car-
ried out as to keep the audience gues-
sing, as well as the brothers them-
selves. The work of Miss Kearns, as
Adriana, the alternately loving and
indignant wife of Antipholus of Ephe-
sus-and not Syracuse!-was excep-
tionally pleasing.
In the evening the company pre-
sented "Much Ado About Nothing" in
such a manner as to keep the audience
laughing most of the time. Miss
Kearns and . Mr. Sommes, playing
Beatrice and Benedick, the unwilling
lovers, were the heart of the play.
Both heart-whole, and greatly ridicul-
ing the foolishness of other less for-
tunate .mortals, they are finally
brought to love each other, and find i
not so foolish after all. Mr. Cushman,
playing Dogberry, also won much
Tomorrow afternoon they will give
"As You Like It," which is especially
adapted to outdoor presentation, and
in the evening will be seen "Romeo
and Juliet."
Last .rinute News
Told in Brief
London, July 22.-Additional suc-
cesses for the Allies are contained in
today's reports, showing further gains
for the British in the Somme river re-
gion, a retreat of the Austrians to
new positions on the Galician border
and new successes for the Italians in
the upper Posino section of the Austria-
Italian front. %
All reports of today from the wes-
tern front say the Allied offensive is
being pushed vigorously at every
point. The British troops have suc-
ceeded in capturing Foureaux wood,
which the Teuton forces had strongly
fortified, but the enemy immediately
made a counter attack which was part-
ly successful.
It is a significant feature of the re-
cent reports that the Germans, while
staining some successes in these
counter attacks, are not able to take
in one rush what the British have
Butte, Mont., July 22.-Arthur E.
Reimer, of Boston, Socialist labor par-
ty candidate for president of the
United States, was fined $10 in the
municipal court here today for violat-
ing the city ordinance by speaking in
a downtown street. The fine was sus-
pended by the magistrate. Reimer
conducted his own defense, asserting
he was the victim of discrimination.

Interesting Trip
Dr. Fred Baker, '80 ,and Wife Have
Many Exciting Adventures in
Two Years' Trip in Orient
In a letter to his class secretary,
Fred Baker, M.D., '80, Point Loma,
Cal., writes of a two years' trip in the
In September he and his wife, who
was Charlotte LeBreton Johnson, M.D.,
'81, started for a trip around the world.
After three months in the Philippines,
they went to Japan for a two months'
visit with their daughter, one of the
American secretaries of the Y. W. C. A.
With a young student interpreter they
touched many tarely visited spots of
Japan. The outbreak of the war at
this point made necessary a change of
At Singapore, Mr. and Mrs. Baker
found a Sikh regiment in mutiny, and
active fighting on the outskirts of the
city. This helped to turn the travel-
lers' minds toward home and finding
an American steamer bound for Sai-
gon in French Indo-China, they went
aboard and stumbled onto the finest
thing of the whole trip, a journey into
the interior of Cambodia. Three days
among the wonderful ruins of Angkor
went far to afface the glories of the
Great Wall of China, thee beauties of
Chinese and Japanese architecture,
and all that went before.
Circus Horse vs.
D. U. R.-Which?
The wagon creaked under its heavy
load. The driver of the six-horse
team skillfully played his reins back
and forth and the team acted as one.
The day was over but it was only be-
ginning for the circus man. The night
performance was just finished and al-
ready parts of the outfit were on their
way to the trains. A wagon had swung
out from the grounds onto the main
street. On each side of the street
were lined scores of automobiles and
the driver was forced to drive close to
the interurban car track. Suddenly a
car came in sight. As quickly as pos-
sible the driver swung his team away
from the track but too late. The last
span was not out of the way of the
car. The nigh horse was hit, and a
fearful gash was cut in his flank.
The accident happened Thursday
night at the corner of Ninth and Huron
streets. The motorman claims that he
was blinded by the lights of the auto-'
mobiles and that he was going at a'
rate not exceeding 12 miles per hour.
The value of the animal was put at
$850 and the Barnes Circus Company
claims damages to that extent. It is
understood that the D. U. R. will re-
fuse to settle but they were obliged
to bury the animal as it was left on
the street by the circus people.

Niemann's benders spelled defeat to
the engineers in the opening game of
the summer league, the lits winning
out by a 3 to 0 score. The contest
went four iniings and in that time the
miserly Mr. Niemann doled out but
one lonely blow, whiffed nine aspir-
ing boilermaker batsmen, and gather-
ed unto himself two loud and re-
sounding whacks in the same number
of trips to the rubber. In short, the
aforesaid Mr. Niemann was the su-
preme flowerpot set-piece of the af-
ternoon. Although his efforts were
somewhat dimmed by "Wallie's" scm-
tillations, Max Cutting pitched a very
nice game for the losers and might
have won had he been given better
The U-hall gang started off with a
rush in the first frame and put over
two counters as the result of two
hits and an error. Brill doubled to
open the inning and took third on a

he scored when Greenblatt dropped

The winners had another fine chance
to score in the last round when Gracey
singled with no one out, took second
on Gardner's error and stole third.
But Cutting whiffed the next three
men and the game was over.
The Arch angels' only chance to
score came in the second frame when

men up, strolled and Cutting poled

hoped that the innovation will go far
