The "cotton-tail" deer at the Chutes
has changed its habits and tempera
ment since November 23 of last year,
according to the declarations of Jo
seph F. Gillin. who on the date men
tioned was nipht watchman at the re

and assaulted him viciously, according
to a complaint which Gillln filed yes
terday in the Superior Court.
In its sport the cotton-tail found
satisfaction in breaking the watch
man's arm and bruising his hand and
wrist, the injuries incapacitating him
from the performance of manual la
Gillin says that the railing which
confined, the deer was only three feet
nine inches high, whereas to keep it
from doing battle in the zoo the fence
should have been five feet six inches in

Chutes Company is responsible for the
low railing and therefore should pay
him for the damage he suffered in
conflict with the pet.

Kirke La Shelle's new and fasci

was seen for the first time in San Fran

and thrilled and delighted a big house.
The scenery and scenic effects are
elaborate, embracing a cavalry camp,
with troopers, horses and accoutre
ments, and a wildly picturesque view
of the rugged mining regions of Mon
tana. The sensational climax of the
third act has powerful dramatic in
tensity, and it stirred the audience to
tremendous enthusiasm, which brought
numerous curtain calls. Juliet Crosby,
specially engaged for this week at the
Central, was charmiing as the heroine,
and received frequent and flattering ap
plause and floral testimonials. Her
schel Mayall, in the title role, gave an
able, manly and convincing imper

Expert Cyril Williams filed with the
Supervisors' Finance Committee his
report on the cost of horseshoeing in
the Fire .Department. After present
ing a mass of figures, he says that the
city itself can. do the work for less
than the contract just let to Edward
Graney at $2 50 per horse. During the
fiscal year ending June 30 Williams as
certains the cost of horseshoeing was
$5SSS 47, and he figures that the cost
at the contract rate would have been
SC604 50. From 1893 to 1900, at the con
tract rate of $2 50, the expert finds the
cost to be for each horse $2S 08 per an
num. For the year 1900-01 the contract
rate was reduced to $2, and the cost
l>er annum was $19 37. For 1903-04,
when the city shod the horses, the cost
was $19 43.
The Finance Committee receded from
its determination to subpena the Fire
Commissioners to explain their action
in awarding the horseshoeing contract
at an alleged higher rate and also to
explain the increased cost of the Fire
Department stables. No subpenaes
were issued and none of the Commis
sioners were present.
Another proposed amendment to the
charter, providing that the Tax Col
lector shall not have the right to ap
point an attorney to conduct the liti
gation of his oftlce. which shall become
part of the duties of the City Attorney,
was referred to the City Attorney for
an official opinion.
J. P. Martin, manager of the Sharon
estate, informed the Finance Commit
tee that in two weeks he would have
installed on all the estate's sidewalk
elevators a Safety device which his en
gineer is perfecting. Martin filed a
petition to amend the ordinance with
regard to the locking of the elevator
doors from the sidewalk. This was re
ferred to the Fire Committee.
"Inasmuch as the Board of Super
visors now makes contracts for the
Police, Health, Public Works and
Electricity departments, there appears
no substantial reason why the Super
visors should not have like powers in
respect to the Fire Department. We

result in economy to the city and

"The Toreador" is not another "Robin

¦ And the cast is a Jeweled one. The
j Tivoli has spread stars on the piece in
I princely fashion. There is a new sou-
I brette, Carrie Reynolds; a new so
prano, Mary Young; a new leading
man, Melville Ellis; a new comedian,
; John J. Kennedy; besides "light opera's
De Reszke," John Dunsmure, with Wil
lard Sims, Teddy Webb, charming
! Kate Condon. Miss de FilliDpe, Bessie
Tannehill and other old favorites. One
gets in truth hardly enough of any, «6f
; them but Webb. There is a sniff/ of
; one, a sip of another, a crumb ofj an
other and a general wish for mo:re.
One doesn't always wish for Xnore of
"The, Toreador." Its mapfy hands
might have made shorter v.ork of the
second act, for example. There is a
band that suggests derxd cats for a
helpless moment or fwo, a Spanish
village band that we>.comes the false
toreadors. Half of If; would be twice
too much: The r^st is funny. Here
is where Ted/*iy Webb, cast as
the false toreador, runs over.
I do noV remember Mr. Webb
anywhere better cast, but . his
best e.ffort here cannot save the
scene/. Perhaps, like Chinese tea, the
hu/slor on't has lost flavor through
f uming over seas. Emphatically, how
• ever, the rest 'fas not. The comedy is
; better by a plot than most of its neigh
j bors, and on the whole is engagingly
: entertaining. There is a mild Spanish
1 flavor to the music, some lyrics that
1 stick anil a couple of excellent ensem
bles. - •
j The performance, however— well, it
i was simply another stake in the Tivoli

Dear Mus, Petcham: — I heartily
recommend Lydla E. Pinkhani's

four years with irregularities and
Uterine troubles. Kb one «but those
who have experienced this dreadful
agony can form any idea of the physi-

three months. I was fully restored to
health and strength, and now my
periods are '. regiilar and painless.
What a blessing it is to be able to
obtain such a remedy when bo many
doctors fail to help you. Lydia E.

it better than any doctor or medicine
I ever had. Very truly yours, Miss
