BLACK FACE SHOW
BY CLUB MEMBERS
Minstrel Performance Greeted by
Large and Fashionable
A BIGHT OF MIETH AND MUSIO
Good Singing, Funny Jokes,' and
Several Novel Specialties
--McNish a Feature.
No standing room was sold for the
Rock Island Club's minstrel show at
Harper's theatre last night, but every
seat in the house was taken. When
it was over there was not one in the
audience but felt that he had just seen
the only show of the season.
The popularity of the actors may
have had something to do with the
size and the appreciation of the au
dience, but there is no disputing that
extraordinary talent was exhibited by
several of the "perpetrators" and the
boundless mirth and enthusiasm
aroused came from the head as well as
from the heart.
The songs were new and proper and
delivered in real. biacK lace fashion
The jokes were all new, or at least had
a new application, and tne takcoffs
on prominent people were smoking
not. -ine Biage sellings were uveiy
and appropriate, containing a liberal
display of the club's colors, white
Pretty Stage Arrangement.
The boxes were draped with bunt
ing. The performers, who numbered
30, were arranged in rising tiers dur
ing the nrst part, Strasser's orcbes
tra, led by Prof. C. F. Toenniges, be'
ing at the top. and the last man being
almost bidden among the decorations
mere were four end men on each
side. All, even to the orchestra, were
blacked and all wore full evening;
dress. ine end men wore black
gloves and white vests, while the
others wore white gloves and black
vests. The interlocutor, William
Highball (F. A. Head), occupied a
raised seat in tne center of the stage.
It was planned to dress the staje
for the first part with a special eet-
ting. The decorations were ordered
from a Chicago firm, bat when the;
arrive I Wednesday they were found
to be so old and worn that the
club minstrel committee refused to
take them out of the express office.
The stage and boxes were decorated
by Warren Reck and J. R. Tnckis, the
latter the well known window trim
. Kho the Performers Were.
The performance was presented bv
tne lollowing members of the club:

As the curtain rolled up the entire
company sang the chorus of the
"Blue and Gray" with inspiring vim,
each waving a minis ture American
flag, the whole affording a pretty pic
ture. Then followed in quick succes
sion the evolutions of tne end men,
introduction of the principal ends and
the grand introductory overture, etc.

William Highball (F. A. Head) was

by Heinle Scratcher (Mr. Colligan),

and Huckey Jackscn (H. K. Collins),
and the tarn bos by Mr. McNish,
George Washington Johnson (Mr.
Totten), Abraham Lincoln Smith (Dr.
f earce), and Alexander Dumas Brown
The first part ' musical numbers
were as follows: "Sweethearts and

bert Henry Williams (Mr. Stewart);
closing chorus, "My Jersey Lily, "
Abe Rosenfield, who was to havo
appeared as principal on the tarn bo
end, was detained at home by the ill
ness oi his wife. His absence was
severely felt by tfre company and re
gretted by the '"audience. He was
down on the program as Willie Dump
ling, Mr. Mangold consenting at the
last moment to sing his song, and
ur. Mcaish, who directed the stage,
going on the end in his place. The
inability of Mr. Rosenfield to take
part also necessitated the abandon
ment of the operatic sketch, "Micky
Do and Bum-Bum," in the olio.

Mr. McNish, however, made np for
the loss of this number, opening the
olio with a monologue that kept the
audience laugnlng for several min
utes, tben glfing a character sketch,
an old-time negro dance, and con
cluding with his silence and fun act,
of which he is the originator. Mr.

tainer and comes nearer representing
the natural minstrel than many of the

beautiful effect by W. A. Andersch,

sweetness and an easy and graceful

The performance concluded with
hatchet exercises by Mrs. Carrie Na

Mitchell, McKennan, Porter, Louis

program that "the mayor and chief
of police have promised the brigade
their protection." Etch carried a
hatchet and was ridiculously dressed,
the gowns bringing screams from the
ladies in the audience. Mrs. Nation
led her sisters through a series of
military maneuvers that were artistic
and elicited rounds of enthusiastic ap
plause. The performance is to be repeated

"To the managers, captains and
plavers In the Illinois, Iowa and In
diana league of baseball clubs:
"In cites of the class composing this
circuit it is an expensive undertaking
to run a baseball club, and it is al
ways a serious question with each as
to how the patronage can best be
kept up. In my opinion nothing goes
so far to please patrons of the game as
gentlemanly conduct and clean ball
playing. It has been my desire, and
to that end I have exhausted consid
erable effort, to get the very best
umpires that could ba secured for this
league and I feel that 1 have selected
a staff of capable and reliable men.
I shall instruct thenmpires to enforce
the rules in a fair and impartial man
ner on all occasions, and I bespeak
the cooperation and cheerful compli
ance in the rulings of the umpires on
the part of each manager, captain and
player throughout the circuit. The
rules for the governing of the game
are very explicit and cover all points
perfectly, and it is expected tnat all
players are fully conversant with said
"Rule 57 says: 'There shall be no
appeal from any legal decision of the
umpire.' and rule os says, 'unaer
no circumstances shall any player be
allowed to dispute a decision by the
umpire in which only an error of
judgment is involved, and in case an
illegal decision be rendered, only the
captain of the team will be allowed to
protest.' Should it become necessary
for the umpire to impose any lines
upon the plavers, 1 shall insist upon
a prompt payment of the same, and
in all aggravated cases I shall, in ad.
ditlon to any line imposed, suspend
the offending manager, captain or
player for such period of time as the
offense seems to merit.

You drink some beers that cause bilious headache. Perhaps
you thmk that all beers do.
The cause of biliousness is the lack of age too much haste
to put the beer on the market. To ferment beer thoroughly
requires a process of months. Without it the fermentation takes
place in your stomach. That is the cause of biliousness.
Hurried beer is unhealthful. Schlitz beer is kept for months
in refrigerating rooms with a capacity of 205,000 barrels kept
almost at freezing point until it is well fermented. Schlitz beer is
never marketed until thoroughly aged.
