PREMATURE OPEHING 13 OPPOSED
Number of Subscriptions That Have
Not Yet Been Met-Pay-ment
There was a larg-elv ntendtd meet
ing of the general thentre commit
tee At the Itork Island Club yester
day nrternonn to confer with Pro
moter George H. Johnston in refer
ence to the formal jeninR' of the II
linois. C. T. Kiiult, of C'hamberlin,
Kindt & Co., lessee! of the new
house, was also present. They
seemed confident the theatre could
x in readiness 10 davs hence, al-
thfuTh it was likely there would be
a hitch in the matter of the radia-
tirs. I!ut both Mr. Johnston and
Mnj. . T. Channon, of Channon.
Perry fe ('.. who have the steam
heating contract, -were of the belief
that this obstacle could be overcome
by temporary ruuiation.
Two plays were submitted to the
committee, as appropriate for the
first perormaiice Howard Gotdd in
"Hroth-jr Officers" and "Quo Vadis
which could be secured on Dec. 1
and Dec. 14, respectively. The
"Prther Officers" engagement was
Vt once considered out of the ues
lion, as it was in conflict with a
number of other entertainments on
the same date, chief of which. Til a
public way. was the Tri-City Press
uuo vadis apieareu to be re
garded as an acceptable attraction
but some objection was offered to
Saturday night. So all things con
sidered it was deemed prudent not
to attempt to open the house prema
turely, it being realized that tern
porary radiators would subject the
management to criticism if not prop
erly decorated, and Mr. Johnston
for his own part, said he would not
use them unless they were painted
All this would involve expense the
committee would like to spare Mr.
WuU Sabacrlptlona First.
lSesides, Mr. Johnston objects to
opening the house until the sub
scriptions arc all met. In this course
he can hardlv ! blamed. The list
of those delinquents who do not
seem disposed to pay, while consid
erably diminished since the last
meeting of the committee, wus uguiu
read by Mr. Johnston's assistant, and
some of the excuses that were of
fered for failure to meet the pledges
were both surprising and amusing.
The committee feels that the sub
scriptions that remain unpaid should
be promptly i.iet, not only for the
honor of those making them, but for
the reputation of the city and the
good faitli f the general committee.
Of course this does not apply to
those it is knowu will meet their
pledges when they are presented to
them. It merely refers to those
who are delaj-ing the whole enter
prise by failing tc fulfill their obli

IIow to Properly Feed the Body.
Physicians nowadays realize how
necessary it is that the food contain
the right elements that the body re
quires to rebuild itself, and replace
the loss that occurs each day from
activity and energy.
If one lifts an arm, that means the
expenditure of a small amount of
energy, and the burning up, so to
speak, of certain deposits from the
food. This means a certain loss,
and this loss must be made up each
day from food. If the food does not
contain1 the things required, nature
hoists a flag of distress; aches, ails,
sickness of some sort sets in, mean-
in"' that there is somcthinir lackinz
in the food.
The reason physicians so jjeneral-
ly advise the use of Grite-Xuts
Breakfast Food is that thev know

about 73 per cent. These produce
energy and warmth. The phosphor

as do all of the other ingredients,
from the field grain, not tine particle

Physicians know that the soft mat
ter in the brain and nerve centers
throughout the body ar made from
the elements of albumen acted upon
by phosphate of potash. Albumen
is a very common article in almost
every food, but phosphate of potasji
does not exist in all foods, nor is it
found in easily digestible form al
ways. However, in Grape-Xuts these
elements exist, and are presented to
the body in an easilj- digestible form.

Novel Piece of Mechanism
Connection With Henne
TtT-STTM-RT.TS AN IMMENSE BRIDGE
To Begin Construction Next Sum
tion. A big surprise will be caused by
the announcemtnt that the Hennepin
canal dam across Kock river at Ster
ling is to be a movable clam, largely
of a mechanical nature, instead of a
solid wall of masonry, as it has been
pictured for the past few years in the
public imagination. It will resemble
an immense steel trussed bridge
about forty feet high rather than a
dam. the latter feature being- only
pari or me structure mat will spun
Lnrge movable dams at any kind
are not common, but those heretoiore
built, including one or more bridge
dams in use in France and the mov
able dam formerly used to close the
canal of the Sault St. Marie, are of
altogether different details from the
one that will attract the attention of
the engineering world to Sterling as
long as it continues to be a novelty
The war department at Washing
ton has approved the plans for the
dam, with the exception of only a few
minor details, and has returned the
plans to Capt. L. L. Wheeler, the de
signer of the work, who expects to
begin building the masonry parts by
the middle of next summer. It will
be several years, however, before the
steel work, which will be let to some
bridge company, will be put up. Capt.
Wheeler states that it will probably
be four or five years before the canal
s entirely finished, and as the dam
will not be needed until then, it will
not be put up until the end of canal
work is much nearer thnn it is at
present. The big lake formed by the
lam is therefore not to be spread
out over the lowlands east of town
for some time, and when it is made,
he dam will be removed each year
at the close of the season of naviga-
ion and the water will recede to the
natural channel of . the river for
wo months or longer during each
Gate to Hold Hack Water.
The water will be held back by a
erics of gates let down upon a solid
ill on the river bed. The gates will
raise the water seven feet six inches
bove the sill, the total depth being
en it-et on tiie upstream sine or me
dam. At the ordinary stage the wat
er on the site of the dam is not over
two feet deep, so there will be a raise
of elht feet above the present sur
face of the river, allowing for six in
ches of water to run ovt r the gates.
The dam is to cross the river
squarely, which will give it a direc
tion slightly toward the northeast.
touching the Sterling shore between

to center, making the total structure
1350 feet between the banks. The
piers will be eight feet thick and
twenly-seven feet wide. They will
have a cutwater incline on the up
Upon the piers a Pratt truss steel
bridge will be erected. The trusses
will have vertical end posts, instead
of sloping end posts such as are on
the-free bridge. These vertical posts
will be used to help lift and lower
the gates. It should be stated that
the bridge will not be u thoroughfare
of any kind and will not be open to
the public or used by uny railroad.
It will be merely a necessary adjunct
to the dain to alltiw the operation of
the mechanical parts and to. brace
the structure for the strain caused
by holding back the immense body of
water in the lake.
To Kveape Damage,
Strong I beams will be fastened to
the bridge and to the sill of the dam,
and these metal beams will hold the
gates in place. An ingenious safety
hook invented by Capt. Wheeler will
fasten the beams to the bridge by
means ot wnicn any ueam miy uc
leased and swung down stream or
cast loose entirely in case an ice jam
or floating logs and debris threaten
to damage the structure.
The gates and their arrangement
will be the peculiar feature of the
dam. The eight spans of the bridge
will be divided Into thirty-seven gate
spaces to each span, each space to be
closed by four gates, making 1181
gates in all. The four gutes will be
placed one above the other, bottom
gate three feet high, second gate
three feet high, third gate one foot
and top gate six inches, making seven
feet six inches. The two foot sin at
the bottom and six inches of water
Mowing over the top gates will raise
the surface of the water ten ieei
