The Guy Woodward Company will he
the attraction at the Theater this week,
presenting: h repertoire of pta-ndard dramas
and comedies. To-morrow night Nat
Goodwin’s comedy “A Gold Mine,”
will be- presented. Between the acts
specialties will bo introduced. The fol
lowing- notice of the company is from the
“The Woodward Company opened the
theatrical season at the Columbia to one
of the largest houses ever assembled in
that popular ph*y house. Every seat tvus
taken end many forced to stand through
out the evening. ‘The Great Diamond
Mystery’ was presented! in a -thoroughly
enjoyable manner. It proved an excellent
melodrama, with plenty of comedy to en
iiven the more serious parts of the play.
Woodward has surrounded himself with
probably the beet company he has ever
brought to Atlanta. Nearly nil are new
to local theater goers. Although last
night’s periormanjce was the first time
the company has played together every
thing wem smoothly, showing good stago
management. Guy Woodward pleased his
many friends In the role of Grampus
Green. Charles Middleton, an old favor
ite, filled his role well. Edwin, Hough
ton gave a good, portrayal of Jim Bran
on. Miss Lula Rumley, a captivating iit
;le blonde, delighted every one an Polly
Mailer. The specialties of Cheries Mil
ton, the Rum ley sisters and Guy Wood
ward, were received with much applause.”
Leon Her liman n, who will be seen in
Savannah Tuesday ntyu, is unquestion
ably the magician, of the present day.
He is to lovers of magic known as the
Groat Herrmann. He has acquired to a
great extent during his short life of thir
ty-three years, the lineness his art needs.
He has acquired that fineness by long
hours of assiduous practice, and ho nas
succeeded bo well that he is acoepted as
a master. Eighteen years ago a slender
thin faced boy with dark eyes end a me
phtato nose, stood l>efore a mirror in a
iitole room on the Rue Montmartre in
Paris. His door was locked. The neigh
bors who thought him crazy were barred.
Tho youth was Herrmann, and the mir
ror was his audience. It is pretty hard
to deceive a mirror either in th© matter
of bad looks or bad tricks. Yet young
Herrmann for one solid year, tried day
after day to deceive that mirror with his
hanfe. But the mirror with the image
of Herrmann in it, saw everything, and
the boy a conjuror even at. that age, was
d-issa'isfled with it. It would not be de
' ■ ’i ’, * y. r . —,
The Five bosses With IVeriiinnxi.
So one of those sharp-featured, chatter
ing street gamins of Paris was lured into
the room one day. Hermann was only
14. His audience was of the same age.
The young magician put forth the charm
of his magic, and the street gamin, think
ing him the devil, oalled upon the Virgin
for protection, and tied precipitately. The
mirror haid faithfully revealed faults, hut
the street urchin had not detected them.
Then the youth with the MephlaCo nose
felt encouraged. He went to work again.
But he let the mirror severely alone and
devoted himself to his acquaintances.
There is nothing so gullible as the man
who wants to be gulled. There is none
so blind as he who will not see. Herr
mann found out this truth even at that
That was the beginning of Beon Herr
man in the art of magic. But it was not
the real beginnning, either. Heredity saw
to that. Young Herrmann's father was
a conjurer; so were two of his uncles.
At the early age of 8 years he was taken
in hand by his father, to acquire his
father's skill in magic. What he saw
him do, and what he was shown he con
tinually practiced. Magicians are born,
not made. The hands began tliejr devel
opment tvhen the owner was still a child.
Xdttla muscles were brought out,
strengthened and made more pliant. The
•lx years that elapsed between his np
jjrentlcteshlp and his appearance before
the ragged urchin had brought that de
velopment to a state of physical perfec
tion. There were little hollows left hero
and there amid the muscles, hollows in
which coins, oranges, billlnrd halls, rab
bits and other things may be concealed
to lie conjured Into visible existence by
Herrmann whenever he chose.
Herrmann accompanied his father in his
travels around the world as his assistant,
and appeared with him In Europe and
Asia Several trips were also made to
Berth America, Australia and Africa. At
Carl Herrmann's death I.eon succeeded
him ami perpetuated the name. At the
death of his uncle, Alexander, In this
country several years ago, Beon first ap

•Savannah, Aug. 25.—Editor Morning
New's: The trouble which the nations
are having with the Chinese has raised
the question with many, w'hether the
thousands of dollars sent away annually
fiom this country for foreign missionary
purposes is accomplishing any good re
sult. Many of us differ on the subject,
for we are not Sn a position to judge,
but while this subject Is before us, I
would like to take this occasion to call
the attention to a fact concerning a set
tlement of white people within a radius
of thirty miles from this city, where I
have recently visited. These people are
without church or minister, the nearest
church twelve to fifteen miles away,
and consequently they do not hear the
gospel preached. I am told by good au
thority that some of them have never
heard the word of God, seen a Bible, or
even heard of God. Now this seems as
tonishing. but I believe it to be true. If
this is the case, uinler the shadow of a
city, what must be the case in some other
less thickly settled ports of the country.
I think most of us believe in foreign mis
sions and tho teaching of the Bible,
whore It says: “Go ye into all the world
and preach the gospel to every creature,”
but I believe that charity should begin
at home, and when we hove accomplished
all the good we can for the spiritual ad
vancement of our own people, then should
we branch out and help other nations.

The third and last ball game of the se
ries between Fernandina and Brunswick
was played at the Bolton street grounds
yesterday afternoon. The game was call
ed at the end of the eighth inning on ac
count of darkness, with the score, 15 to
5 in Fernandlna’s favor. -By winning this
game the Fernandina boys made it three
straight from their Brunswick rivals.
The first two games of the series were
crack games, and th© “fans” were out
for the final game in full force, to see
what they thought would be a fine exhi
bition, but in this they were disappointed,
os the so-called game that wound up the
series was decidedly off. To say that the
game was tinted with streaks of yellow
would be putting it mildly, and it would
be hard to say whether tho few admirers
of the sport, wrho lingered to see the fin
ish, or the ball players themselves, were
the most pleased when the game was
over. The outcome was never in doubt
after the Fernandina team piled up four
runs in its half of the first inning.
The game that Brunswick put up in the
first inning was bad enough; but its ex
hibition in the second was worse,
and it was thought that the
aid of the fire department would
be reeded to put Fernandina out.
After these two innings the Brunswick
boys partly recovered and settled down to
business. The Fernandina men played to
win from the start and put up, as usual, a
clever article of ball. Hendley, Bruns
wick’s pitcher, did good work considering
the ragged support that he received. Had
he been properly supported the game
would have been a close one.
In the second inning Garrett, who play
ed third for Brunswick, went out of the
game on account of a sore thumb which
interfered with his throwing. His throws
w'ere excusable as his thumb is in a
condition. The Savannah people saw Gar
rett play in the Brunswick-Kernandina
games -and were pleased with the way he
covered third base In that series. After
Garrett retired from the game Tom Hol
land was put in center and Sullivan was
changed from center to third. In the fifth
inning the Brunswick team again changed,
positions, Jim Ballantyne going from
catch to short stop, Wolfe from short to
third, and Sullivan from third to catch.
This made the infield much stronger. The
Fernandina team held the same positions
all through the game. Fernandina open
ed up the game at the bat wdth Butler
first man up. He hit a hot one to third
which was nicely handled, but Garrett
threw' the ball over Villineau’a head and
Butler made the circuit of the ba ses> scor
ing the first run of the game.
Brunson, the next batter, smashed the
pigskin for two bases and went to third
on Byers’ hi* over second, which the. cen
ter and left fielders and second baseman
went after, the ball dropping between
them. Busee bunted to pitcher who
fumbled. This filled the bases with no
Mosley hit a liner to pitcher and out. A
double play would have been made on this
had the third bag beeu covered .when
Hendley threw to catch Brunson, but the
bag was uncovered and Brunson came
horn© on the throw. Byers and Busee
w’ere advanced to third and second
on a balk by pitcher.
Wiggins fanned the air -three times, but
the ball was dropped on purpose by Bal
lantyne to catch Byers off third, which
was worked well, although it came near
ending badly for Brunswick, because, in
playing up Byers, the ball hit him, and
he would have scored his run had he not
run out of the line, nn<l was called out
for doing so. Wiggins went to second
on this play, and Busee to third. With
two outs and tw’o on bases, Morgan scor
ed Busee and Wiggins on his well-timed
single to center. McGiflin flied out to
Harper, which retired the side, with four
runs for Fernandina.. Brunswick
scored a goose egg in their half of the
Fernandina piled up six runs more in
its half of the second. Hooker flew out
to center. Butler hit to third, who again
threw wild, allowing Butler to make the
circuit of the bases for the second time.
Brunson reached first on an error of
short. Byers got another safe rap, and
Busee was hit by pitcher, filling the
bases. Mosley htt safe, scoring Brunson
and Byers. Wiggins cracked out a nice
one, scoring Busee, and Mosley and Mor
gan rapped a two-bagger, scoring Wig
gins. This ended the run-getting for this
inning, as McGiflin made three holes in
the atmosphere, and Hooker went out
from second to first. A chance was giv
en to retire the side on the first three
men up. Brunswick was again white
washed In its half of the second. In the
third neither team scored.
Wiggins, the first batter up for Fer
nandina in the fourth, hit safe, stole sec
ond and came home on Sullivan’s error
on third, on a thrown bail from tho
catcher, which, had 4t been handled,
would have put Wiggins out. but instead,
Wiggins scored on the error. Morgan
fouled out to catcher, McGiffln hit safe,
Hooker sacrificed, advancing McGiflin a
base: Butler bunied safely, and in an
effort to catch McGiflin on third, he was
allowed to score. Butler went to second
on the next pitched ball, and the throw
was wild, passing through the center
fielder’s legs, allowing Butler to score.
Brunson got his base on a gift of pitch
er. Byers flew out to Kaphan. retiring the
side, with three runs added to Fernan
In its half of the Inning, Brunswick
smarted to get In the game. HoJlond was
mt by a pitched ball, went to second on
Kaphart's sacrifice, and scored on Sulli
van's single to center, making the first
run for Brunswick. Sullivan went to third
on the throw to catch Holland at the
plate, and scored on Philips’ hit to second,
which was fumbled. Hcndiloy hit safe
advancing Philips to third; Ballantyne
hit to third which was fumbled, allowing
Philips to score. Hendley, in an effort
to score from second on this play, was
put out at third by Mosley. Wolfe flew
out to left, retiring the side, with three
runs for Brunswick. In the fifth both
sides were blanked.
In its half of the sixth inning. Fernan
dlna went out in one. two, three order.
Brunswick added two more lo her tally
In this inning. Kaphan struck out. Sulli
van flew out to right, Philips reached finsi
on an error of ’ second; Hendley got his
base on balls. Philips and Hendley were
udvanced a base on n passed ball, and
scored on Ballantyne'* single.
This ended Brunswick's scoring. For
mimlina made two more in the eighth.
Mosley reached first on an error of sec
ond, Wiggins got a base on balls. Mer
ged hit to short and was thrown out at
first, and on an effort to catch Mo-dey go
ing from second to third the first t .i M mini
threw wild, allowing Mosley to sct*rr.
McOlffln made a hit, scoring Wiggins and
this ended the run getting The game
was tlu-ii called on the last Imlf of th,.
eighth on account of darkness. Buber
and Wiggins were the run getters, the
former t>o**lng the piste three times and
the latter four times. -Kyi-n led on
baiting, making three safe hits.

probably tlie prettiest play, was made by
Hendley when Mosley hit a line ball to

first. But Harper made another of his
famous one-hand stops. "Bub” played his
usual good game. Wolfe also made a
nice stop, and Morgan made a pretty
catch in left garden.
The score by innings is as follows:
Fernandina 4 6 0 3 0 0 0 2 x—ls
Brunswick 0 0 0 3 0 2 0 0 x— 5
The two teams will now disband for the
season. The Fernandina boys will, with
a few exceptions, go back to that city for
a day or two, and from there will go to
the different citiesthat they belong to. The
Brunswick team will disband here. The
Savannah boys on the team are fortunate
in this, as they are not a thousand miles
from home with business bad.
Butler is the same speedy ball player
as of yore, and It Is truly remarkable for
a man to play the ball that Butler does
with the injured hand that he has. Maybe
"Stuffy” ain't fust on his feet. Wiggins,
who plays on the Fernandina team, is a
good one, and the baseball enthusiasts in
this city will be glad to know that he Is
to remain In Savannah and work with his
brother J. W. Wiggins, at his trade.
With Ballantyne, Butler, Harper, Villi
neau, Wiggins, and possibly Wolfe, who
may remain here, for a nucleus. Savan
nah may have a team next season.
Kapham of the Brunswick learn is a
good hard worker, and Is a valuable man
for any team. Kaphan will leave for his
homq In Atlanta this morning.
Byers, the Fernandina catcher. Is a
“cracker Jack." Hooker pitched nice ball
yeitenhly. It's all off now for this season,
but the prospects are bright for Savannah
to be In the push next season.

4 Dear Sirs:
I write to tell you how grateful
I I am that Graybeard was Invented,
j Nearly all my life I have been a
| great sufferer from nervousness. I
j could not sleep. X ate very little. I
j loet flesh all the time. XXy compiex
, ton got sallow. Nothing pleased
j me. Our family doctor did all ha
j could for me. Ho worked patlent-
I ly, but everybody noticed that I
j kept going down hill. People
thought I had consumption. Ono
day I happened to pick up a little
booklet with the picture of a candle
on It. It attracted my attention.
1 read It. It was of deep Interest
to me. The next day X bought a
bottle of Graybeard. X had not
taken the full bottle before I felt
better. I have taken six bottles,
and have Just bought three more.
| I have gained flesh. I haven’t fett
I better since I was a child. Every-
I thing I eat I digest. And I have
[ a splendid appetite. I can laugh at
I amusing things. I Imagine I feel
j like other people. Everybody Is so
j glad to see me so vigorous looking
j and so healthy. I would not take
I SI,OOO for the benefit I have reoeived
1 from Graybeard. It Is a wonderful
j remedy, and I fully believe it saved
J my life. I can’t thank you enough.
I Yours truly,
