COLORED LEADER DIES.
Mrs. Viola Hicks Colar, wife of Joe.
Colar, died Monday. December 18th,
at 9:16 a. m., at the age of forty
two years. Deceased leaves eleven
children besides a host of friends.
She was secretary of the Mother's

was supervisor of the Colored OGirls
Sewing Circle. She was buried Wed

At the Orpheum Theatre there will
be given an extra performance on
New Year's Eve. The first show will'
start at 7:30 p. m., and the second
at 9:45 p. m. This New Year bill
is the headliner with James J. Cor-,
bett. "Gentleman Jim" to the world.
as everybody knows, was the most
popular heavy-weight champion the
Iring has ever produced. During Cor
bett's ring days it was an acknowl
edged fact that his science and not
his strength made him the champion'
of the world. Today Corbett is as
fit and trim as ever. He is keen
eyed and as graceful of movement
as ever. His excellent physical con
Idition and fine appearance is undoubt
edly due to the fact that he is a
temperate man in every meaning of
the word. Dissipation has played no
part in his life. Mothers will do
well to bring their children to see,,
Corbett and hold him up to their
sons as a model. Mr. Corbett is
assisted by Billy B. Van.
Few dancers upon the vaudeville.
stage today have so quickly attained
fame in their profession as the Mar
mein Sisters, who are bringing their
newest creations to the Orpheum
next week. They will give a compli

all young ladies interested in dan'
I ing. upon the stage of the theatre.
They will also give a short talk on
the fundamentals of the art of danc
ig. will answer all questions per
taining to the work, and will wel
come the mothers of children and
young ladies as well. The Marmein
Sisters are assisted by Ruth Marr,
who is a soprano singer, and Albert
Kirst, Jr., violinist conductor.

Paul Decker, pleasantly remem
bered for former appearances in
vaudeville. is in a smart little new
comedy, "I heard - ," which was
written specially for him by Edwin
Burke. The author of Mr. Decker's
playlet, it will be recalled, has writ
ten extravagantly for vaudeville in
the last two seasons. He has fur
nished innumerable vehicles for some
of the most brilliant stars In the
two-a-day. In Mr. S)ecker's present
vehicle, the title of which suggests
"dishing the dirt" or "slipping the
scandal," this young comedian takes
a distinct step forward.
Jack Osterman, in "Fifteen Min
utes of Something." is the newest
and probably the youngest of van
deville singles, and many people be
lieve he is among the best. He com
bines the Irresistibility of youth and
inherited ability and an exceedingly
pleasing personality with a bright
sparkling line of stories and songs.
Liddell and Gibson, however, will
have none of these things. They are
content with plain English, and so
instead of using a superlative they
are content to announce themselves
as "Just Vaudevillians." Liddell and
Gibson sing, dance and talk, and
they do all three uncommonly well
They crowd fifteen minutes of solid
entertainment. What more could be

SMALL BOY'S PLAN WORKED
Whole Lot Better Than Keeping Cen
stant Watch for Marauding Band
One time when Frank Wallace, state
entomologist, was a small boy, says
the Indianapolis Star, his father as
signed him to guard a garden from a
marauding band of chickens from a
neighbor's coop. Frank did not like
the Idea of wasting his precious boyish
time on unprincipled chickens and sot
his wits to working.
He bored holes through grains of
corn, tied notes to the end of a thread
attached to the grains and set the bait
The foolish raiders fell for the trick.
Frightened by the fluttering notes a
few inches from the ends of their bills
and the sensation of the threads in
their throats, the chickens went ly
ing home and tore around the yard.
This attracted the owner and the
chickens were caught and notes read.
This is what they read:
"Ive been over to Wallace's this
The next day the same thing oc
curred and this is what the notes said
"I scratched out Wallace's sales
On the third day the notes read:
"Say, now listen: This is the last
day rm going over to Wallace's ean
come back alive."
There was no fourth day to the
story except that the owner of the
chickens and the father of young Wale
lace nearly got into a fight.
Tepegraphy of the Air.
Explorations of the air have r

of course, the details are costilnaely
changing. Ley, in England, has di.
rected his studies of floating balloons
to a solution of the question of the
tInfluence of the topography of the
earth's surface on the state of the adr
above it. He finds, among other thing.,
that the disturbances produ:ed by hills
and valleys are transmitted to ans
expectedly great elevation, affecting
the lower and middle strata through
out. A general effect noticed Is that
the velocity of the wind, or of a ce
