"The Tenderfoot," which comes j
to the Auditorium on Monday even
ing, has had an uninterrupted run
of more than a year. This is not j
only a remarkable career hut the
best practical endorsement a theat- <
rical venture can hope to secure.
The music is by H. L. Heartz, a
composer of long standing, who is
favorably known through "Miss
Simplicity." The opera was orig
inally produced in Chicago, where
it had a run of twenty weeks. Go
ing on tour immediately at the close
of that engagement, "The Tender
foot" made a triumphal tour of the
country and has just completed a
highly successful one hundred
night's engagement at the New York
Novelty is the keynote of "The
Tenderfoot." The author has dared
to raise his curtain on a stage ten
anted only by a Chinaman. Pres
ently a troop of Texas Rangers conies
galloping on in a dashing cavalry
song. The rangers give way to a
Western gambler, an authoress from
the East and a prairie waif, and
then are introduced all the pictur

tour and stops in to visit his niece,
the owner of a large ranch. He
comes in for traditional "tenderfoot"
treatment. He is roped while at
dinner, made to drink more than is
good for him, has to dance under
the stress oi revolver shots and is
the common prey of cowboys and
rangers alike. In all these situa

Of the several song hits the prin

W. C. DUNNING, Agent,
Farmers Want Township Plan.
There is a strong sentiment among
the rural population of Whitman county
in favor of township government. C. B.
Ke^'ley, a prominent member of the
grange, circulated a petition asking the
county commissioners to submit the pro-
position to a vote of the people at the
late election. The petition was signed by
162 taxpayers, and the law specifies that
the commissioners shall submit this
proposition to a vote of the people,
when 1,000 sign such a petition. The
petition was filed with the commissioners
and no reason for failure to submit the
question is given. Mr. Kegley and
those who signed the petition are indig
nant because of their wishes being ig
Harper precinct voted on township
government and the proposition carried
almost unanimously. The farmers in
that precinct are in favor of township
government and want the commission
ers to submit it to a vote of the people.
Many farmers, and especially members
of the grange, are strongly in favor
of township government, and will in
sist that the question be submitted to a
vote of the people at the next general
The New Issue in Temperance.
The Leading Temperance Paper, Sounds
the Call to a New Crusade in
the Following Article.
"ANOTHER HEAD ON THE HYDRA."
"It is time attention was drawn to a
form of alcoholic traffic that seems to
have been overlooked by those engaged
in the crusade against the rum power.
If, as is believed and taught, alcohol is
r'ost dangerous when it fights in ambush,
if it is most to be dreaded when it finds
its first entrance to the system in the
pleasant sauces and dishes of the home,
then the form of alcoholic traffic in ques
tion is doubly dangerous, for it comes in
the guise of medicine and attacks a sys
tem prepared by weakness to easily sur
render to the assault. In many
which are largely consumed throughout
the country, by all classes of people,
there is a percentage of alcohol which
puts them on a level with beer, rum and
whisky as intoxicants. It is the small
ness only of the dose prescribed which
prevents a prompt recognition of the in
toxicating effects of these so-called medi
cines by those who use them.
" It is safe to affirm that they are
MEDICINES IN NAME ONLY.
Their chief value lies in their alcoholic
effect as a stimulant. In fact, those who
know, attribute the benefits ascribed to
this ciass of medicines wholly to the
stimulative effect of the alcohol they
contain. They are used largely by per
sons not in the habit of drinking liquors,
and the little dose taken three or four
time a day is as stimulating to these
people as his regular "finger" of "bit
ters " is to the regular liquor-drinker.
WHAT CAN BE DONE?
"What ought to be done at least is to
compel every patent-medicine manufact
urer to put on the wrapper of his bottle
the quantity of alcohol it contains. That
would at least leave people to exercise
their own judgments. More than that,
no paper truly interested in temperance
reform should print the advertisement
of any alcoholic medicine. It should be
the duty of every temperance organiza
tion and branch in the country to look
into this question, agitate it, and deal
with the facts just as earnestly and as
honestly as other facts have been dealt
Appreciating the gravity of the issue
raised by the strong statement of facts
made in the foregoing article, we wish
to call general attention to the fact that
Dr. Pierce'a Golden Medical Discovery
and Dr. Pierces Favorite Prescription
NO ALCOHOL, NO WHISKY, NO INTOXI
CANT OF ANY KIND.
These medicines are equally free from
opium and other narcotics.
i They are in the strictest meaning of
\he words, temperance medicines. Of no
other medicine, put up especially for
woman's use can it be truthfully affirmed,
as of Dr. Pierces Favorite Prescription,
that it contains neither alcohol nor opium
or other narcotic in any form.
While the negative features of Doctor
Pierces medicines may only interest
some of the reader! Of 'his article, the
positive features of these medicines must
be of interest to every one. The great
value of "Golden Medical Discovery"
in the cure of diseased or deranged con
ditions of the stomach and digestive and
nutritive organs is testified to by tens of
thousands who have found health and
healing in this great remedy. The " Dis
covery" increases the action of the blood
making glands, and by curing the dis
eases which corrupt and cripple the
stomach and digestive and nutritive or
gans, it enables a full and pure supply of
blood to be sent to every part of the body.
WOMEN' KNOW ITS WORTH.
Women who are always appreciative
; of benefits, have been especially appre
ciative of the benefits following the use
of Dr. Pierces Favorite Prescription. Its
wonderful cures of irregularities, inflam
mations, ulcerations and female troubles,
have caused women to name it, "that
God-send to women." It is entitled to
, wear the " blue ribbon " of merit as well
