On New Year's night, and afternoon,
nt the Opera House, the New* York Cn;
slno management presents Thomas Q.
Seabrooke at the head of the company
from that famous play-house In "The
Rounders," the latest and claimed to he.
the greatest New York Casino success.
It was flrst produced there early last
spring and was continued through the
entire summer. The company presenting
It this year is almost Identically the
same as in the New York production,
and Manager Lederer guarantees all
the original scenery, costumes .and
stage effects to be exactly the same.
"The Rounders" Is by Harry U. Smith,
and is said to be one of the brightest
and most amusing pieces produced for
some time. The music by Mr. "Englander
is of the tuneful and catchy order,
and a number of the "airs" have been
whistled into popularity by reason of
the delicious swing which pervades
them all. A scries of the most amu3lng
complications begin at the opening of
the story and continue without cessation
until the close. In the hands of the
present company, "The Rounders" have
achieved a great success. R is heard or
seen in aa entire evening's performance.
The production is one of the most
elaborate Manager Lederer has ever
sent out from the Casino, the company
bringing all the original scenery and
stage accessories used in the New York
run of the play.
"The Katzenjammer Kids."
Blondell and Fennessy's farce comedy,
"The Katzcnjammcr Kids," will be
the attraction, at the Grand the flrst
half of this week, a real treat may be
looked for. The company Is made up
of clever vaudeville people and will
probably make one of the hits of the
season. Manager Felnler presents the
attraction at regular prices, though it
Is an expensive one. The plot of the
play hangs on a very fine thread, which
frequently breaks to allow the interpolation
of the specialties, of which
there is a liberal supply. Edward
Blondell, in his character of the Kid,
was genuinely funny and had the audience
screaming continuously. Llbble
Blondell appeared to gret advantage as
.ucssie. iiiv miumgnt perrormance advertised
for to-night, has been declared
olT by Manager Felnler.

No wonder scorcs of Wheeling citizens

weak and sore, and I had rheumatic
pains all through my shoulders and
arms. I became so weak at times that
I fainted. 1 was also subject to frequent
attacks of vertigo, when everything
around me seemed moving. There
was distress and weakness in the kidney
secretion and I could not better it. although
I took lots ?f medicine. Seeing
