Tom Kane, assistant hostler for
the Milwaukee, tells this story on
himself. Christmas week he pail a
visit to Chicago. Before (;oing ho
secured the address of a lady, whom
he knew in his childhood, and who
he had been informed was now living
in one of the prominent neighbor
hoods of the city, bo he started out
to locate her. He came to a number
which corresponded with the one he
had jotted down. He knocked at
t .e side door. No answer came. He
knocked again. Same answer. He
was becoming angry, as he heard
footsteps insi ie. He gave one fare
well knock. The door opened about
two incnes and a woman's race was
disclosed. "Got nothing to eat for
yon thia morning; breakfast is over,'
she said. Tom says he felt as
though a snow storm had struck
him. He finally mustered up cour
age enough to rap again, the door
having been slammed in hi fsce as
soon as she got through with her
little talk. Toe young lady was very
much chagrined when she found out
The comedy drama, "Tennessee's
Pardner, "returns to the Bnrtis tomor
row after an absence of 16 months
The experience which constant per

agreeably surprised at the pro

originally produced. Now it'moves
on gracefully, yet simply, through
its clever four acts, anu teems in uo
way to fail in interest below "Ten

orphaned "Tennessee "1 is the thread
of geld whioh is spun through the
whole woof, and is Its most exquisite
point of beauty. This it is which
made precious by contrast the lives
of Caleb Swan, the gambler, and his
companion, Asa Bice, and shows
