Lad' Department Now Completed.
Mr. Chas. lHaiutel who is the propri
etor of the old famous Turkish Bath
House, located at r'2S Conti street, and
bo has Just completed the installa
des of a complete set of baths for Ia
eas, is now adding a new feature for
both of his bath houses, wherein elec
tric baths will also be given. These
electric baths are in the shape of a
cabinet, wherein th person sits, and
by manipulating switches may get any
degree of temp erature desired, thus
doing away with steam or hot air which
is sometimes oibje tionable to those
ot accustonied to taking Turkish
baths. Mr. lai;t'el extends a special
iavitation to the ladies of Algiers to
have them patronizie the Turkish baths
which may be n:ld ftor the small price
of 50 cents, whien the prices in the
large hotels ratite from $1.00 up. Mr.
Mantel has splnt a considerable
smonut of money in the last improve
ments he has made, and no doubt will
make a big sucmess in this un, ertak
lag. Dr. Dyer, the mnassauer and chi
ropodist is in daily attendance at the
bath houses and his services may be
had at any time. Dr. Dyer is well
daoWu in his profession and his cllen
tele speak very highly of him. Mr.
Mantel also desires to extend special
itvitations to the men of Algiers to

One of the most interesting features
of the theatrical season now about to
end will be the two weeks' engagement
of motion pictures at the fashionable
Tulane Theatre, beginning Sunday ma

world's greatest actresses will be shown
SARAH BERNHARDT, AS CAMILLE. IN MOTION PICTURE PLAYS AT
for the first time in the South in the
picture play. The first of these is Ma
dame Sarah Bernhardt. easily first
among all the emotional actresses of
any time. and who consented to por
tray her favorite role of Marguerite
(;authier, of Dumas' masterpiece, "Ca
mille," in order that her surpassing
art might be preserved to future gen
'rations. The- same is true of Ma
dame Gabrielle Rejane. the distinguish
ed French actress who won a succes
sion of triumphs during her American
tour of 1904 in Sardou's Napoleonic
comedy, "Madame Sans Gene." It is
this charming historical comedy in
which "The Man of Destiny" figures
so prominently, that will be shown on
the screen at the Tulane. Expert pho
tographers, using the finest and most
expensive equipment, secured more
than 60,000 perfect pfetures in produc
ing the two plays of thirty to forty
scenes each, from which one may read
the tragedy of "La Dame Aux Came
Hlas" and the comedy of "Sans Oene"
as easily as from the printed page.
Manager T. C. Campbell is standing
sponesor for the presentation at the To
lane, and regular patrons of the fash
ionable playhouse, as well as the ha
bitues of the garden variety of mov
ing picturese, will enjoy these remark
able studies almost as much as if the
famous stars were here in person.
Seats will be on sale Thursday, March

Great Question Solved.
The French academy has solved a
great question, its savants having
traced the antipathy for the mother
in-law to the red man. In the six
teenth century the Spanhirds brought
back with them, besides gold and
legends, the story of the hatred of the
mother-ln-law among the aborigines.
The noble red man .would not walk
in the footsteps of his squaw's mother
till the sea had washed them away, as
profound was his detestation of his re
latlon by marriage.
This hatred, the academicians
think, was a relic of the feeling em
gendered in the days when man stole
his bride by tore.. Naturally his dl'
position toward his mother-in-law was
not that of an admirer.
We are living down the mother
law bogie Unlike the red man, a
good many of us could walk in her

Quinine in the Good Old Days.
There is a whole lot of difference in
the price of quinine now and 60 years
ago. Then it sold for $5 and some
times more an ounce. Now it can be
bought for one-tenth of that amount.
The $5 quinine was taken in syrup,
baked apples, slippery elm or anything
that would cover up the stuff and part

CRESCENT- "THE THIRI) DEGREE"
C('harls Klein. the author of "The
IAon and the Mouse," is responsible
for "The Third Dieree." his latest play
which comes to the ('reseent Theatre
for the week of March 31. under the
manaement of the I'nited Play Com
pany. Prominent in the cast are (;race
Lord. Elizabeth G;illesple. Raymond
Wells, Frank Patton, Charles T. D)J
Veehio, Edmond Spraue. Wnm. Weston,
This play deals with a number of
pre-eminent conditions that exit in
lare cities. and it is the purpose of
Mr. Klein. by means of this play to
arouse a sentiment in opposition. as
he did with "The IAon and the Mouse."
as regards financial and politi al con
ditions. The scenes are laid in New
York, the. characters are prominent in
the predominant social set. For the
first time in the history of the stage
.in "The Third Degree" will be por
trayed the methods of the New York
police departnment, which in many in
stances have rivalled the inquisition
for barbarity and cruelty. Mr. Klein
has handled the subject deftly and
adroitly in a most convincing manner
and as a result this play should Invite
a large attenclance to the Crescent. The
usual matinees, Tuesday, Thursday
and Saturday will be given.
George Sidney, the funny little com
edian who has been making many
friends among the broad gauge laugh
ers of America for a number of years,
will be seen at the Crescent for the
week of April 7, in the greatest of all
fun plays, "Busy Izzy," which is best
described as a musical farce comedy
in which Sidney is glyen every oppor
tunity to introduce those peculiar fun
making qualities of wnlck he Is past
master. "Busy Izzy' and Sidney are
said to be a sure cure for the blues,
and to those poor mortals who are suf
fering with a grouch and who view all
things in the world from a pessimistic
standpoint, a visit to this entertain
ment is recommended to make things
assume a more roseate hue. Particu
lar attention has been given to the se
lection of a cast of exceptional merit.
In the company supporting Mr. Sidney
will be found such well known fun
makers as Miss Carrie Webber, a com
edienne of rare ability, Dick Hume,
Nick Basil, Frank Gibbons, Walter
Webber, Leona Bunad, L~ttle Liscord
and a large and particularly good-look
ing bunch of chorus workers who can
reflly sing, dance and dress becom
ingly in the delicate frills and finery
which have been lavishly provided by
the management, and which was de
signed and executed by one of the
most famous manufaeturers of stage
apparel in this country.
The frt case is laid in "Busy
Issy's" depertment store and in the
second the scene will be shifted to a
big summer hotel. From a scenic
standpoint there has been nothing left
undone, the meg numbers are of a
kied that wilt linger loag in your
memory and ead you from the bestre
