is due not only to the originality and
simplicity of the combination, bat also
to the cars and skill with which it is
manufactured by scientific processes
known to tho CaXaronxLa, Fio Svbitp
Co. only, and we wish to impress upon
all the importance of purchasing the
true and original lemedy. As the
genuine Syrup of Figs is manufactured
by the GturoKXia. Fio Strup Co.
only, a knowledge of that fact will
assist one in avoiding the worthless
imitations manufactured by other par
ties. The high standing of the.Cau
forsl. Fio Sntcp Co. with the medi
cal profession, and - the ' satisfaction
which the genuine Syrup of Figs has
given to millions of families, makes
tie name of the Company a guaranty
cf the excellence of its remedy. It is
far in advance of all other laxatives,
as it acts on the kidneys, liver and
bowels without irritating or iweaken
ing them, and if does not gripe nor
nauseate. In order to get its beneficial
effects, please remember the name of

The audience at Harper's theatre
last n'ght saw a fine performance of
DeMille's -Lost Paradise1' by Harri
son J. Wolfe and his company. The
play' is a strong story of the capital
vs. labor problem. The Knowlton
iron works and the home of the mil
lionaire owner furnish the scenes. Mr.
Wolfe is Kueben Warner, the superin
tendent of the works. He lores his'
em plover's daushter.Margaret Knowl-
ton, a character that is artistically
portrayed by Miss Marie Barriosrer.
Althou'gh. her heart tells her to do
differentjv, she is forced to scorn him
because of fbs "contrast in their social
stations. .She becomes en traced to
Ralph Stan'disb, the last leaf of the
family tree.one who has been picket! for
her by her father, who is to give him
a half share in his factory. The
"new boss" at once causes a strike at
the works, previous trouble having
been prevented by Warner, who stood
between the workmen and their em-
plover. Warner resigns as super in -
tendent, but after a spat between Miss'
Knowlton and her lover she sends for !
Warner, andlor the first time reveals!
her love to' him. She induces her
father to allow the increase of wages
at the mill,' the men return to work,
Warner reconsiders his resignation.
and he and his millionaire employer's
daughter are wedded. It is a pretty
love tale, lhe situations are stirring,
and in them Mr. Wolfe displays the
qualities of a powerlnl actor.
UUhooiev's Keceptioo is to ue
presented at Harper's theatre this
evening. No more marked change in
the theatrical business in recent years
has been noted than the very decided
upward trend of that branch of it
known as the "vaudeville." Some
vears ago the term variety" was
tbourht synonymous for that which
was course or vulgar. 10 a certain
extent this was true, but with the re.
cruitinir from the "iejritiniate" ranks
of actors and actresses of standing in
the operatic and dramatic fields the
vaudevilles took on a more healthy
complexion. There is no reason whv
this should not be so. A vaudeville
performance is made up today to af
ford the greatest pleasure to the
greatest number. There is little or
no attempt at plot. There is no
strain on the mental facilities. You
come there to lie entertained, and vou
are, without an effort on your part
Vou hear good singing and see beauti
ful costumes. Walter J. McDonald
has introduced vaudeville in his
farce comedy, "Gilhooley's Recep
tion." It has proved a success.
The favorite comedian. Arthur
Blackaller, will appear at Harper's
theatre Sunday evening, as a New

Episcopal Diocese of yebrmaka Opposes
the Confirmation of Dr. Morrison.
The standing committee of
Episcopal ' diocese, of Nebraska
formally ' refused its consent to the
canonical consecration of Dr. Theo
dore X. Morrison, of Chicago, as
bishop of Iowa. The revolt is against
what is termed the iniquitous manner
in wbica Dr. iireene. of Cedar Kapids,
was defeated for the bishopric. The
specific reasons were practically set
forth in the resolutions adopted by
the Omaha ministers of the Episcopal
faith shortly after Dr. Greene was
ignored and Dr. Morrison elected by the
lowaconventlou. Rev. John Williams,
of Omaha, secretary of the Ministerial
association, at which these resolutions
were adopted, said that that was the
basis of the standing committee's re
fusal to give its consent to the con
secration of Dr. Morrison. He added
that the consecration could not take
place without that consent, which
will never be given.
The resolutions were adopted after
an animated discussion. They con
sumed 1,000 words, and after recitin
the fact of Dr. Greene's originr-.l nom
ination, declared' with vigorous lan
guage that his defeat was accom
plished through a meau spirit of poli
tics, and such methods could not le
