TALES OF THE THEATRE.
Sousa comes to the J'urtis Wednes
day evening with his great band, and
the "march king" is certain to have
a cordial welcome from his many ad
mirer's, who can thus testify to their
pleasure in the great success achieved
by the American conductor and com
poser in Europe last summer. Re
turning travelers have long 6ince told
how Sousa was the one distinct suc
cess of the Paris exposition, where he
created more favorable comment and
attention than any single feature of
that great show. Throughout the
continent also Souea was a tremen
dous success, his' band being ac
knowledged as far superior to any
similar organization in Europe. In
Brussels La Chronique said: "Sousa's
band is a corps of skillful ar d trained
instrumentalists. Admirable sonor
ity, the brasses in particular, great
precision and linish in e?ccution, a
pei feet discipline which gives to the
ensemble a character altogether mili
tary these are the uahties imme
diately noticeable in the musicians
from the TTfcited States." Thesolo
ists with Sousa are Blanche Dullield,
soprano, and Bertha Bucklin, violin
lste. "Papa's Wife," which comes to the
Burtis tonight, contains more cense
thau the title might lead one to ex
pect. It was reconstructed from two
French vaudevilles by Harry B
Smith, and its mutic, written by
Reginald DeKovcn, is light and catchy.
Two of the most popular airs in it are
the colonel's song in act two and the
military chorus in act three. Charm
iag Anna Held gives a comedy per
formance which displays the an of
the actress, at one minute demure and
innocent, and the next full of vivacity
and abandon. In the drinking scene
in act three she springs from light
comedy to emotional acting with a
skill and case which has won htr
much favorable comment. It is her
dainty touches in this scene which
keeps the realism from being offen
sive. Her marvelous gowns worn in
the production are quite French, and
when we have raid that, we have said
all that is necessary in the opinion of
He Fooled the Surgeons.
All doctors told lieniuk Hamilton,
of West Jefferson, O., after suffering
IS months from rectal fistula, he
would die unless a costly operation
was performed; but he cured himself
with Bucklen's Arnica Salve, the best
in the world. Surest pile cure on
earth. . 25 cents a box at Hartz &

FEVER EPIDEMIC IN

An epidemic of typhoid fever has
broken out in the Excelsior school

cases have developed within a very
short time, all the patients being

ASK TRUSTEES TO RESIGN.
Sears Citizens Protest Against New Rail
Citizens of Sears held a meeting at
the town hall Saturday night to pro
teat against the action of the village
council in granting a 20-year fran
chise to the Tri-City Railway com
pany. C. 11. Dibbern called the
meeting to order and D. B. Sears was
chosen chairman. There were ad
dresses by a number, of citizens, tie
point being taken that the council's
action was illegal on account of a
resolution having passed to lay the
matter over till the next meeting.
A resolution introduced bv C.
B. Sears was adopted reviewing the
situation, protesting against the 10
cent fare as unjust, and declaring the
franchise illegally granted. Another
resolution presented by T. P. Lafln
demanding the resignation of
three trustees, Fred Wright, A. D.
Thompson and Jacob Gitt, was adopt
ed, and a third resolution declared it
t be the sense of the meeting that
tie franchise be granted only pro
vided a 5-cent fare with transfer
privileges be granted.
C. II. Dibbern, David Sears and
Benjamin Lallin were appointed a
committee to engage counsel and
couduct the legal proceedings neccr
sary to test the validity of the fran
chise, and David Sears. G. A. Smith,
C. II. Dibbern, C. N. Hammond and
C. B. Sears were named to negotiate
with the street car company.
Another meeting will be held to
morrow evening to take further
An Honest Medicine for I .a Grippe.
George W. Waitt, of South Gardi

that has done any good whatever. 1
have used one bottle of it and. the

raise a cup of coffee to my lips or even
button my own clothes. I was so nervous,
fidgety and restless that I could not sleep,
and it seemed that I would surely lose my
mind. One bottle of Dr. Miles' Nervino
helped me so .much that I kept on using it
and when I had taken four bottles I felt
liko a young man again."
