the version by Stange is . the only au
thorized and correct one. It has
been made perfect in its every detail
by the use of gorgeous scenery, his
torical properties and magnificent
costumes, all of which are made after
models from truly historical data.
A leading magazine repeats the
story of a Vermont farmer who, on a
visit to city relatives, is taken to hear
a celebrated actor and company. On
being asked his opinion of the acting,
he replied: "Acting! they didn't do
no acting, they were just like home
folks. Why, down in my part of the
country people do that sort of thing
every night." It is needless to re
mark that more sincere praise could
not be asked by an actor. It is this
same absence of "acting" which char
acterizes the methods of Ilennessy
Leroyle in "Other People's Money."
Old in education and experience of
the better school of art, though com
paratively young in years, he has
evolved a bit of character work in the
above production which, in its way,
is inimitable. He will be seen at
Harper's theatre Sunday night in
"Other People's Money."
Anna Held will appear at the Bur

comedy from the French which is
called "Papa's Wife." It is hard to
realize that three years ago Miss Held
was entirely unfamiliar, with the Eng

her in the role of "Anna," a shy little
debutante, who goes straight from
the seclusion of a convent to income
the bride of a rakish old baron, they
are more than surprised. The orig
inal company and prnluction will
be brought here.
WHY SO MANY FAIL.
The Benson So Many Catarrh Remedies
Are I'nsuccessf nl.
There are few troubles for which
there are so many remedies and so
called "cares" as for catarrh, and it
may be added there are few diseases
so diflicult to really and permanently
Inhalers, sprays, powders and
douches are all applied locally and
give temporary relief, often for only a
few hours, and it is doubtful if any
thing like a real cure of catarrh was
ever accomplished by the use of local
Catarrh is a constitutional disease;
it is in the blood like rheumatism and
to cure it requires an internal medi
cine to act upon the blood, to drive
cut the catarrhal poison from the f va
le m entiiely, and anyone can readily
see that a salve or powder or inhaler,
which simply clears oft the mucous
membrane of the throat and nose, can
have no effect on the real cause of ca
tarrhal disease -
The remarkable success of the new
catarrh remedy, Stuart's Catarrh
Tablets, is because it drives out of the
system through the natural channels
the catarrhal poison, the germs of
grip, bronchitis and consumption and
causes the hawki.-g, spitting and gag
ging because the excessive secretion is
no longer supplied when the tlood is
made healthy from the regular use of
Stuart's Catarrh Tablets.
The remedy is in the form of large
20-grain lozenges, pleasant and palaX
table, composed only of wholesome
antiseptics and so safe to use that lit
tle children use them with perfect
safety and benefit if the little one is
suffering from colds, croup or cough
from any cause.
Stuart's Catarrh Tablets have been .
on the market scarcely one year, yet '
they have met with euch popularity
and success that druggists everywhere
in the United States and Canada now
have them in stock and report con
stantly increasing demand for them.
Eucaline Toilet Powder will be ap
preciated by mothers as well as every
one else who recognizes the value of a
first-class toilet preparation. Euca

antiseptic, promptly relieves chating

of the rebellion and seven days later
he got his first brief, from a brother-in-

only other business he got that year
was also given him by a kinsman a
cousin and it was of the same kind.
The fee on each occasion was 1 2s. 9d.

Occasionally there is to be fouud a
proprietor of a secondhand bookstore
who is something more than the naturo
of his business would seem to indicate.
He regards his old and rare volumes
rather as a collection than n stock of
goods and experiences a pang when he
parts with one.
A flippant young man dropped Into a
secondhand bookstore kept by a man
of this kind.
Taking down several choice old books
from the shelves, he fingered them
carelessly and replaced them. They
happened to treat of abstruse subjects
and did not appeal to him.
"Are any of these books for hire?" he
"No, young man," sharply answered
the proprietor. "They are for lore."
