far-away frostiness in the air, but it
tingled like seltzer, perfumed faintly
with late prairie blossoms and the
mesquite grass. j
When night came the five or six
rooms of the ranch house were bright- I

and a dozen or more guests were ex expected

The guests enjoyed and praised Rosi Rosita's

which is as near Hades as any other
place, and some of them, the Apennine
wood and the tower of Pisa, were tak taken
en taken on the spot. The others looked
very much like Dante had taken a
moving picture machine with him on
his trip, and he might have done so
for all we know to the contrary.
The world owes a great deal to
Dante. Up to the time of the dis dissemination
semination dissemination of his poem, the popular
idea of Hell was very emphatic but
somewhat indefinite. It was conceded
to be a place of high temperature, and
quite uncomfortable, and the lack of
pleasantness in its boundaries was ex excessively

monotony of the scenery. The indus industries

Dante discovered that there was a
considerable variety in the topography

there are some places in it where peo people

toothache, which might be mitigated
by their observing what a very stren strenuous

We have noticed that, here above,
other people's misfortunes attract a
more lively interest than their good
luck, and if the rule works the same
way in Hell, quite a number of folks
are going to have a passably pleasant
time down there. In fact, some will
be more at .home there than elsewhere.
Alliteratively speaking, however, this

When all in its favor has been said, it

heard a F. C. & P. conductor say was

Dante met in Hell a number of peo
ple who on earth were supposed to be
going in the opposite direction, which
experience of his will probably be
duplicated by those of us who may
follow his footsteps without coming
out on the other side. A very dis discouraging
couraging discouraging feature of Hell to Florida
people is that a large portion of It
seems to be situated In an excessive

this part of the territory, his guide

him out, but for all we know to the

Its the Star's disinterested advice to
all who haven't seen the "Inferno"
that they go to the Temple this eve
ning and repair the omission. Seeing
the pictures is not only interesting
and impressive, but is a necessary part
of education, as one finds allusions to
the "Inferno" in almost every part of
lierature. We do not see how It could
be better illustrated than in the pic
tures now at the Temple.

Story of the Great Play Whieh Will be
at the Temple eit Thursday
Proving to be one of those lovable,
likable. yet indefinable somethings
which manage to grip and hold. "Bev "Beverly,"
erly," "Beverly," dramatized from George Barr
McCuteheon's novel, "Beverly, of Grau Graustark,"
stark," Graustark," which was presented at 'the
Bijou last, night, more than satisfied
the usual first night audience at that
You might call "Beverly" a romantic
drama, and again you might call it
pure melodrama, or you might say
that it was comedy, while another
time tragedy would suggest itself.
And, indeed, you would be right in
every instance. for, as a matter of
fact, "Beverly" is all of these things
combined, yet combined so pleasantly!
that one forgets the tragedy of it all,
or the melodramatic moments, In con contemplation
templation contemplation of the whole, so rapid is
the transition from tears to laughter,
and from awe to smiles.
Indeed, Beverly herself is so en entrancing,
trancing, entrancing, is so cleverly portrayed by
Irene Warfield, that anything -which
the book girl might say or do would
be pleasing. And one cannot think of
Beverly without thinking of her old
negro mammy, which, done by Lillian
Allen Devere, is one of the best bits of
characterization witnessed here In
many a day.
Beverly Calhoun, a young woman of
Washington, D. C, travels all the way
from her v American home across the
seas to Graustark, chaperoned by her
"mammy." She is entertained by the
princes of the foreign country, and
forthwith falls in love with Baldos, a
mountaineer, who is in reality a prince.
The action is fast, and there is always
something interesting either happen happening
ing happening or about to happen. The trials of
the lovers, the accusation brought
against Baldos, his sentence to be shot
as a traitor, and his final liberation in
the last act, when he and his Ameri American
can American sweetheart pledge each others
love, all form part of the story.
The play is well acted. Not a sin single
gle single character but is in the hands of
some one who knows how. Lawrence
Evart, as Baldos, afterwards Prince
Danton, has a pleasing stage presence
and a well modulated voice just the
kind of voice to make an ideal stage
lover. That he faalls in love with Irene
Warfield is by no means strange, for
she is indeed good to look upon. And
what a wonderfully clever little ac actress
