PREMIERE TONIGHT
AT THE VALENCIA
"The Price of Money" Will Be
Presented for Cause of
Charity
Clever Amateurs Will Appear in
Benefit for Old Ladies'
The real premiere of "The Price of
Money." Alfred Sutro's brilliant play,
will be on the stage of the Valencia
theater this afternoon, but, except for
a few of the workers who have been
most active in the organizing of the
Stage society and this benefit for the
Protestant Episcopal old ladies' home,
there will be no audience, for it is but
a dress rehearsal. Every detail of
stage "business," costumes and scenery
will be the same as at the performance
tonight at the Valencia, and the actors
are. so proficient in their roles that It
will be a finished performance, al
thougrh to empty benches.
There are but two boxes remaining
for the performance, as all the others
have been sold. Among the holders of
boxes are: Mrs. Fred Sharon, Mrs. A.
M. Drown, Mrs. . Phebe Hearst, Mrs.
William Crocker, Mrs. G C. Boardman,
Mrs. M, IT. de Young, Mrs Harry S.
Goldberg and Mrs. Fred MeNear.
Besides the number of boxes sold,
the sale of scats has been very large,
and a banner house is expected. Tick
ets will be on sale all day at the box
office of the Valencia, and it is ex
pected that they will all be sold before
the performance.
The gowns to be worn by the ac
tresses are said to be stunning cre
ations. Mrs. Nat T. Messner's creations
are described as "dreams." Indeed, the
gowns worn both on the stage and in
the parquet will make a feast for the
eyes. There will be many dinner and
supper parties before and after . the
show, and the affair will be one of the
gala events of the season.
The following talented members ot

BRAZIL IS FIGHTING
THE WHITE PLAGUE
Federal Government of South
American Republic Takes
Up Campaign
The federal government of Brazil is.
preparing a campaign against tuber
culosis in the cities of the republic,
especially In Rio de Janeiro, equal, to
that against yellow fever, which has
placed the city among the most health
ful cities of the world.
The present number of deaths due to
consumption In Rio de Janeiro and in
Brazil generally explains the extraor
dinary measures to be taken by the
government against tuberculosis ac
cording to the announced plans. The
tables of mortality of the federal dis
trict show that out of a total of 14,660
deaths in 1905, 2,663 were due to pul
monary tuberculosis, as compared with
287 from the dreaded yellow fever. In
1906 out of a total of 13,956 deaths 2.649
were from tuberculosis, while in 1907
out of a total of 13,014 deaths 2,587 was
the proportion. Therefore of all deaths
in Rio de Janeiro during those years
one in five was due to consumption,
and that, too, in spite of the highly
commendable work done by the league
against tuberculosis, whose efficacy is
already shown In the slightly decreased
record for the last two years.
What systematic work in sanitation
can do, however, is shown in the totals
of deaths given in the case of yellow
fever. In the latter disease the deaths
in 1905 were 287, in 1906 42, and in
1907 39. The disease is stamped but
so far as the general public in Rio de
Janeiro is concerned, th^ few cases
noted arising in out of the way places
and being so well guarded and pur
sued that all danger of epidemic under
present regulations is done away with.
Naturally, with such success in dis
posing of yellow fever back of them,
the sanitary authorities of Brazil feel
that something can be done against tu
berculosis. There are 26 cities in the
ipountry which are included in the plans
outlined in this report, but for the time
being, and with the initial - expense,
most attention will be. paid to Rio de
Janeiro as the capital and chief, city
of the nation. This new campaign
involves the expenditure of $1,250,000
as a beginning of the movement. The
plan includes legislation which may
have a marked influence upon similar
movements in the world generally. The
Brazilian project includes as its ma
terial features:
The compulsory reporting of every
case of tuberculosis to the sanitary
authorities; the complete assumption of
charge of all cases of tuberculosis by
public authorities, in which infectious
cases are separated from the public
and patients supported by the public;
the establishment of hospitals, with
complete isolation, for tuberculosis in
fected invalids, and of hotels and board
ing houses, agricultural \u25a0 colonies and
sanitaria for those not invalid;. the ab
solute refusal of admission into Brazil
of any person *or animal havingHuber
culosis; the inspection of all foods and
materials likely to carry bacilli of the
disease, with power to destroy any
thing Infected; and the betterment of
food, housfng and other conditions of
life for the large mass of the popu»
lation 1 in which tuberculosis is raging,
for the prevention of the disease by
fortifying the -people against it by im
proving their general health.
No modern' means: for combating the
disease is to be neglected and there
Is to be given full effect In Rio de
Janeiro to practically all methods of
fighting the disease which sanitary
officials the world over, have been. work-
Ing for Vat \u25a0 various times and places.—

CLUBMAN IN JAIL
ACCUSED OF THEFT
George B. Root Jr. Alleged; to
Have Stolen Family's Sil-
ver Plate
Gambling, Women and Dissipa
7 tion Said to Have Caused
His Downfall
OAKLAND, Xov. ,22.— Accused of
pawning family silverware, valued at
several hundred dollars. George B. Root
.Ir., 'railroadman, clubmarr.and son of
Georgre B. Root, Sr., .manager, for AY. C.
Ralston, United- States; subtreasurer,
and stock broker "of> San- Francisco, is
under arrest, in.jLhis. city. '--•/. -\ '
Tomorrow a formal complaint will
be, sworn to by his sister, in law. Miss
Marion Godfrey,* one, of ; the 'four daugh
ters" of Colonel John F. Godfrey of the
civil war,' arid' after whom Forf God
frey at Pasadena is named, charging
Root Ji - with* grand larceny. \ Inci
dentally his wife, formerly .Miss Ruth
Godfrey, will serve papers upon him
naming him defendantin a divorce ac
tion alleging norisupport, cruelty and
infidelity.
DISCOVERY OK : . THEFT 7 r'j.
; Discovery of the theft of the family
silverware came; one. week , ago- last
ni^ht. For a period of several months
members.of the .'.family.- have been miss
ing, the silverware, : but-b elieved that
it had. been mislaid.- Since last Satur*
day. an investigation; has been made^
with; the result that part of the miss
ing .silverware has been recovered in
local pawnshops, where Root Jr., it
Is said, has been a well • known cus
tomer.; A large portion of the missing
silverware, however, • has not been
found,' and it is believed Root disposed
of it. in' San Francisco.
GAMUU.NG HIS DOWAFAIX
- Roots- downfall is attributed by' his
wife and sister'in .'.law, Marion God
frey, to gambling, a fondness for
women, other than? his wife, and dis
sipation in its 7 worst forms. "For ; . 12
years Root was employed, by 'the Norths
.western Pacific railroad in the capacity
of book keeper. . iAt of ."his
arrest he had ,in- his possession passes
oncevery railroad operating-: in 7- the
state, but they were last, year'spasses
and according to his-. wife date back
to. the. time.of his leaving the North
western company, which,' she says she
has learned, he did. under a cloud.
FAII.KD TO PROVIDE FOR WIFE
Roofs personality and cleverness In
the alleged thefts ,of. the family valu
ables is. said by his sister in law and
wife tQ. have shielded him from sus
picion- for .several months. It .was his
failure to provide for his- wife, so- the
latter claims, that- finally, led to his
arrest. . Mrs. r Root and her sister knew
Root was earning no money and it was
the. fact, that .he seemed well supplied
at. times that aroused the suspicion of
Miss Marion Godfrey. , She communi
cated her suspicions to Mrs. Root, her
sister. Since the couple were married,
eight years ago, -a part of the silver
ware- that was- discovered, in some- of
the .local pawnshops : .was kept in \u25a0 a
, valise, belonging to Mr. .and Mrs.: Root
Jr.' in : the attic of the home of "Root's
parents/at 1006 Sixth avenue in East
Oakland. With the exception of a few
large pieces this was missing, besides
silverware, that belonged to Miss
Marion Godfrey and her sisters, Ellen
and Helen", which they had fallen heir
to through the death of their parents,
Colonel and Mrs. John F. Godfrey. "
WIFE'S ' COMPLAINT '-. '\\\
Mr.- and Mrs. Root Jr. were married
eight years ago. According to Mrs.
Root, the accused's wife, he has in
reality never provided for her. She
claims that, she has been the guest' of
his mother and father and that she
has clothed herself with the money
which she inherited from her own par
ents, but that her husband's, parents
have" taken care of her four children,
two girls aged 7 and 5 and twin boys
ag*>d 2 years. - Mrs. Root said tonight
that her, husband may make, the claim
that he provided for her through his
parents, but she is firm in the asser
tion, that he practically never provided
for her himself and that on account of
their children she has permitted herself
to depend upon the charity of Mr. and
Mrs. .Root Sr. .
GAMBLED WITH CHIXESE
Just in what manner . Root Jr. has
disposed of the money he has earned
since his marriage Mrs. Root cannot say,
but she says that for a' time he played
the races and more recently took to
Chinese gambling games.
Since the death of Colonol Godfrey
and ; Mrs. Godfrey, the Godfrey girls,
with the exception of .-Mrs." .Root Jr.,
have resided with relatives at the old
Moss home, 3071 Broadway. ;At the
time^of the discovery of her husband's
alleged crimes, /Mrs. Root Jr. c^ame to
the conclusion that she could not stand
for her husband's behavior longer, and
forthwith left him. taking up her resi
dence ..with her. sisters.'
Mrs. Root,"- mother of the man under
arrest, is a niece of United States
Senator Stewart of Nevada,- It was not
until tonight that Mrs. : Root learned
her. son -was -under arrest. When she
was informed by her daughter in law
she became ; hysterical. '

The Fashions
. .: .. Colors "for Elderly AVomcn
\u25a0 The "middle -aged 'woman -must give
scrupulous -attention to', every • detail
of : her -toilet if she would look her
best. Especially, is this statement true
of -the, selection of. colors, -although
this season's fashions have been ex
tremely kind - to the elderly matron,
for there is little difference between
the styles in shades and models de
signed for mothers and those that are
considered smart for debutantes.
To begin with, colors are more popu
lar than black, a point in favor -of
elderly women; for only fresh, youth
ful faces can successfully wear somber
hues. Then the shades that are favor
ites S are rich and deep, not vivid or
frivllous. so that any middle aged
woman may follow the 190S-09 styles
and not appear to be dressing in a
manner unsulted to her years.
As to 'the exact tints that will be
come elderly matrons, there are _the
soft, undecided, greenish blues which
a woman who has ' been fair in her
youth will - find to harmonize with
eyes- that have lost their brightness
and hair that has become faded and
lusterlesg.
Another fashionable color that this

type of gray haired woman can wear
is wistaria. In fact, almost any woman
can don these shades if her hair is
gray or white.
Dark eyed, gray haired women who
have a tinge of pink in their cheeks
look most attractive clothed in a
pastel tone of wistaria, while the blue
eyed woman of uncertain age may by
wearing this color bring golden glints
into hair already faded.

Ideas for Euchre Decorations
Place a high \u25a0 glass vase with two
or three long stemmed white roses In
the center of your table. Around the
base of the vase arrange the picture
cards — bowers, kings and queens — from
a pack, in a circle like a dolly.
The ices can be served in boxes
simulating a pack of cards, and paper
napkins on which cards are printed
will add to the decorative scheme.
Make sandwiches and cakes in shape
of hearts.. diamonds, clubs and spades,
and have- heart : and diamond shaped
dishes for bonbons and salted nuts.
As artificial light always adds a
charm, exclude daylight, as your eu
chre is an afternoon affair, and light
the room with candles. Get together
as- many candelabra and candlesticks
as you can find place for. putting them
on sideboard, shelf, bracket — every
where except on the table. They will
give the room a soft, pretty light, not
attainable .with gas or electricity.
At each cover place a playtnjar card,
face up. -alternating the black and
red suits. , Duplicate these cards from
another pack, and as the guests enter
the dining room. deal out one that cor
responds to each place card, giving tho
women red and the men black. If* men
ar*> present. In this way the guests
will find their places at table or part
ners with whom they are to converse
if refreshments . are passed around.
The tablft may be further decorated
at each corner with a. hous* of bal
anced cards, .such as children delight
In building, and any person unfortunate
enough, to .knock one down must buiM
it again for the amusement of all pres
ent. : i

About Draperies
When the furniture is gilt, then th«
prettiest drapery for mantel and piano
will be creamy white silk embroidered
in" gold thread. Art serg* in a tone
harmonizing with the walls Is a cozy
looking fabric whea the room is fux
nlshed for practical living, as for in
stance, the' lighter make of mission.
Then there are pretty flowered silk
draperies, or less expensive, and
equally pretty soft cotton and wool fab
rics printed in dainty colorings. These
will look attractive in a room with
walls in a plain color. The furniture
used could be wicker, made comfort
able with cretonne curtains. There is
really no one rule that can be followed
in such a matter. Each room will be

: Perfect ventilation is another essen
tial, which is more necessary In the
kitchen than in any other room in the
house, unless one excepts the sleeping
rooms. Holes may be bored in the top
of the window sash; this affords a con
stant current of air that keeps the
kitchen well ventilated; little ventilat
ors may be placed on gas or coai
ranges, which canry- out of doors,
through, the stove pip*, all odors of
cookery; it is also possible to attach
to the range an incinerator, into which
all the dry garbage may be placed and
burned without odor. -
