And in the conduct of these theatres, Mr Keith has always shown that originality and daring which have won the admiration of all classes In 1898 Mr Keith issued a sweeping order that hats of any description should not be worn In his theatres. Managers everywhere predicted that he never would be able to enforce this rule, but he won the people to his way of thinking, the Boston board of aldermen later passing an ordinance sustaining Mr Keith's position. Now, not onlv at Keith's, but in every theatre in Bos But every citv demands something different. Boston, for instance, wants more muic than any other city. Then we find that acts which make a great hit in Now York because of looalisms Introduced are not understood here and fall flat. Performers say Boston Is the hardest city to play In. Of the acts themselves it is absolutely necessary that they be of the very best, no matter what the character of the act may be. "Of course, the public has had to be educated in these matters, and it is only because of the merit of the entertainment and attractiveness of the surroundings thatf people can be induced to attend. I hive no doubt whatever, if the vaudevtUe of 20 years ago had been the same 'as it Is today, as free ft 1B ton, -nats ort" is the rule. He was the first to establish at considerable expense a well organized fire department in connection with bis Next Sunday' Globe ft. a fiv' from objectionable features and presented in the same surroundings, the attendance would have been proportionately as large as It is now." The continuous performances begun by Mr Keith in 18S5 were successful from their start, and soon became an important feature In theatricals all over America. Mr Keith's theatre was called the "Gaiety," and it was not long after the introduction of the "continuous" that it was taxed to the utmost. Next door was the Bijou theatre, at that time, in its decorative features, the most beautiful theatre In Boston. Mr Keith secured a lease, and then introduced continuous performances, with vaudeville. These performances, given at popular prices, were said to be equal to those given in the best theatres. However that may be, the Bijou played to capacity nearly all the time, and Mr Keith began to look around him. "While he was quietly planning a new theatre in Boston he also became interested In Providence, where he obtained possession of a building known as the Providence museum, made radical changes, and on March 21, 188(5, opened it as the Gaiety museum, with vaudeville and light opera. Here, as in Boston, his patrons were largely women and children, and it was not long before he secured control of the finest theatre In Providence. This was remodeled, and on Sent 10. 1888, was opened as Keith's opera, house, playing the best legitimate attractions. Later it became more profitable with vaudeville, and several years ago Mr Keith presented it to his general manager. It will be fully, equal to any of the beautiful pictures which have made the children look eagerly for the Sunday Globe. theatre, securing for the purpose the services of Capt C. C. Willett of engine 26, of Boston, to undertake the work. These departments with signal systems, etc, are conducted in the same manner, but on a smaller scale, of course, as that of the city of Boston. Mr Keith did not confine his attention exclusively to American cities, for in 1900 he purchased the Princess theatre in Oxford st, London. Soon after the opening of the new Boston house he spent almost 19 months In European travel, and returned with many new Ideas, some of which he still hopes to see worked out. The rapid growth of vaudeville, however, has forced him to activities hi other directions the opening of vaudeville theatres in Cleveland, Columbus, (Manchester, Portland, Me, and aWtimber of other cities. Bast year with F. Proctor he became interested In the Keith and Proctor circuit, comprising seven theatres in New York and Jersey City. After 25 years of activity, such as few men have had Mr Keith is endeavoring to relinquish the reins of management to others, Mr E. F. Albee, who has been general manager of his enterprises since the beginning, and Mr A. Paul Koit.i, assistant general manager, taking over the great bulk of the work, although Mr Keith himself is still in close touch with his varied interests, particularly his theatres in Boston and Philadelphia, pronounced by the late Sir Henry Irving to be the most beautiful theatres in the entire world. In Boston, his home city for many years, Mr Keith la known and admired not only as a great amusement manager but as one of the most public-spirited citizens, who, beside his beautiful theatre, has on Tremont st another monument to his energy and high Ideals of beauty In civic life as well Next Free with Every Copy of Sunday's Globe Mr K.

Philadelphia next attracted Mr Keith's attention and he 'purchased a large building on North 8th st, which was reconstructed at an expense of over $73,000 and opened as the Gaiety, with continuous performances, Nov 4, 1889. This theatre was soon doing capacity business. Mr Keith was busy with the plans of his new theatre in Boston, In the spring of 1893, when he received a message more modern facilities for heating and they should be the same in all houses, to have worked out tne plan in all Ita lighting.

It was Miss O'Reilly's father who wrote "A dreamer Uvea forever, and a toiler dies in a day." Miss O'Reilly herself is both a dreamer and a toiler. Her one dream, by day and by night, is to lessen the misery of the world, and all her unremitting toil is toward that end. And so infectious is her fine enthusiasm that it would not be at all strange if she persuaded Mavor Hibbard and the city council to undertake the gigantic task of morally regenerating the dwellers In Boston lodging houses and rendering it possible for landladies to make living. taln that nine-tentns or JSi1 tional ability, and their positions must i L-no in Roston will most not depend upon, politics. no less than 17 theatres in this country and abroad; more than 150 houses devoted to vaudeville are furnished their attractions through the great booking offices of which Mr Keith is the energetic head; thousands ol performers and their acts are placed through this great enterprise which provides for the entertainment of more than 2,000,000 people weekly, more than 100,000,000 each year-millions more than the entire population of the United vaudeville part was called the olio. In fact, anybody connected with the house mieht be called on to do a "turn." Mr Keith recalls that a card writer working on one of the signs in front of the museum was one day suddenly rushed inside to play the part of the minister in "Muldoon's Picnic."
