Much interest has been manifested
concerning the mechanical methods of
the thrilling chariot .ace employed in
Klaw & Erlanger's new and greater
production of General Wallace's spec-
tacle "Ben Hur." which is to be pre-
sented at the Hicton Theatre Musko-
gee. Wednesday and Thursday even-
ings and Thursday matinee February
s and 9.
In this great arenic contest the spec-
tator sees eight horses galloping at
break-neck speed and straining every
muscle to gain the advantage in the
race w;thia the anipitheatre. Behind
each quartet of horses is a Roman
chariot- Ths wheels revolve rapidly;
the chariots lurch and sway and the
j flaming be-ribbbned garments of the
home product? Wake up! There are drivers flutter behind them adding in-
many famines in Oklahoma City who ;teasitr to the realism of the scene. The

For the first time here the public
will have the pleasure of seeing Geo.
Barr McCutcheon's delightful romance
"Beverly of Graustark. The engage-
ment is but for one night only and
those who have read the book will un-
doubtedly desire to see the play which
follows the book very closely in all
matters of detail having been drama

and painstaking manner the interest

clouds beneath the crushing wheels of
the chariots. The clatter of the rush
ing boofs of the horses and the rumble
of the chariots are distinctly heard.
Elaborate mechanism and applica-
tions of electricity produce this great
effect The mechanism of two great
cradles twenty feet in length and
fourteen foet wide and which are mov-
able back arid forth on railways. Is
supported by a bridge structure cap-
able of holding twenty tons. The tops
of the cradles are two inches above the
level of the stage. Each cradle bears
the four horses and the chariot of each
contestant. On each cradle there are
four runways and treadmills of hickory
slats two inches wide and covered with
rubber they are twelve feet long and
two aod a half feet wide. On each of
these treadmills a horse is secured by
steel cable traces which hold him in
place and prevent him from moving
forward oft the runways. As each
horse gallops the treadmill revolves
nniler hi feet- thereby eliminating the

pact of his hoofs which would force

By this mechanical arrangement It is
'possible for the horses actually to gal-
lop with all their speed within the
space of their own length. It is con-
sidered the most realistic effect ever
seen upon the stage.
