STORY OF RED BAND
How Sorrentino Won Medal at
FAME SPREADS TO OTHER COUNTRIES
Organization to De Here for . Two
of This Week.
Kugenio Sorrentino and liis famoHS
lied band, to appear t matinee, rtirl
night the coming Friday at tfie Illi
nois, will arrive in the city in the
morning' of that day. There are 45
men in the band, most of whom have
been with Sorrentino from ten to six
teen years, smij among this number
are fourteen Koloists, all of interna
tional reputation and many of them
pre-eminent in their class. The Ked
band has n quality of tr.iu;; unusual
and prominent citizens. The Ilnnda
Rosa was now in great demand, and
Sorrentino and ' his men ' began to
travel. Everywhere they were re
ceived with enthusiasm. Finally,
t,hey invaded Germany, the home of
Wagner, where it was supposed It
talian composers and Italian musici
ans were not held in high" opinion.
Here their success was greater than
ever. Kaiser Nilhelm was among
(hose; who fell victim to the witchery
of the bands playing. The result was
a handsome medal, presented to Sor
rentino"by the kaiser. This was in 1890,
while the band was in 1'erlin.
Then eame the first American tour
which' was one long triumph. Philip
Hale, the late Hen Woolf, V. F. Ap
thorp and Louis Klson, of IJoston,
all of the critics of New York, lhiffj
lo, Philadelphia and other big eastern
cities wrote eulogies of the band.
The. first engagement at the Philadel
phia exposition brought n beautiful
medal in recognition of the unprece
dented attendance. Willow (Irovo,
near Philadelphia, which Sorrentino
had made famous by his march, gave
him a medal. Lake Harriet, near
Minneapolis, where the band ha

in this country and due to difference
in instrumentation. Its tonal climaxes-are
inspiring in their intensity, yet
at no time are they offensively
loud or blattant. Mellowness is char
acteristic of the tone of every instru
ment, and the fourteen soloists in the
band make possible a wide variety or
musical numbers. Xo tither band
traveling in America has half so many
soloists as Sorrentino.
The programs for the concerts eon
tain plenty of music that is familiar,
but much that is new. Sorrentino
has the earnest purpose of every man
in his band and the programs are in
terpreted with the spirit and enthusi
asm of musicians who bring good will
to the aid of talent. The Pandit
Uossn plays with all the beauty and
finish of an orchestra. Sorrentino
has a wonderful appreciation of
dynamics and musical effects and he
refuses to use the arrangements and
instruments common m most uitmifc.
Cornets are tabooed in his band, as
are also slide trombones, and in their
place Sorrentino puts reeds :ini valve

members of the band wear reel tun

Sorrentino is not given to personal
display, and although he has a hand
some collection of medals, he seldom
wears them. He will show them with
pleasure when asked, but not other
wise. Their History is in reiiiny me
history of Sorrentino as n bandmas
ter. The story of how- he was called
to the eondiictorship of the Panda
Hossa in the little town tif San Severn,
his birthplace, and how he was sup
ported by the municipal government
of San Severn early in his enterprise
is familiar to many music lovers.

tino was just of age, and had just

Hut it was not until after the band
had been under Sorrentino's direction
for several years that it gained es
pecial distinction. In it was de
cided by Sorrentino and his backers
that it was high .time for the band
of which they were so proud to sally
forth for conquest. The Columbian
exposition at (Jenoa, in celebration of
the sailing .of Christopher Columbus
for America, had hung up some very
rich and attractive prizes for military
bands, and 65 from all parts of Eu
rope entered the contest. Among
them, and unknown, was the Panda
Rossa. Sorrentino played Massenet's
suite, "Scenes Pittoresques," and won
the gold medal.
When the bnnd returned to San St-
vero the town took a da3 off to cele
brate the victory. The feature of the
jubilee was the presentation of a me

A Itulned IJfe Tonlrbt
A melodramatic attraction of ex
ceptional excellence, "A Kuined Life,"
comes to the Illinois tonight. The
play is by K. Laurence Lee, for many
years ;v producer of drama, and this
latest work promises to prove far
more successful than any of his pre
vious efforts. Since its initial per
formance it has been acclaimed by
press and public alike as u strong
and virile play. It possesses every
element of success, having an unusual
plot, stirring situations ami uncon
ventional dramatic scenes relieved by
bright and sparkling comedy.
Kelcey and Shannon Tomorrow.
In these days of melodramatic
twaddle it is refreshing to be able !
announce the advent of those two de
lightful artists, Herbert. Keleey and
KtTie Shannon, who will appear to
morrow evening in William (iillette's
dramatization of Sir A. Oman Doyle's
famous series of detective stories un
der the title of "Sherlock Holmes," in
which play they both have congenial
parts. As this great play is in the
very height of its career, it would not
be amiss to give a little insight into
its salient qualities. As n play, it is
a miracle of dramatic construction.
It is ingenious, cunning and abound
ing in neat strokes devised from star',
to finish to keep its audience rapt and
startled into surprises. These devices
always succeed, for the dramatist,
William (iillette, is as clever as Oman
Doyle, the author, anil he has achiev
ed the seemingly impossible task of
transferring Doyle's fragmentary, al
though interesting, series of detec
tive stories to the stage.
Tbomaa JefTerson In Kip Van Winkle.
Thomas Jefferson, who plays "Kip
Van Winkle at the Illinois Saturday,
matinee and night, resembles his
father, Joseph Jefferson, physical!;
and mentally, and long ago demon
strated the fact that he had inherit
ed the hitter's talent for acting
which lias been in the family foi
many generations before him. It is
very gratifying to Thomas the way
his efforts are being received. His
success on the stage is not to be won
dered at, as he has hail every advan
tage from childhood up. When very
small he played many parts with his
father, and after completing his edu
cation in France he immediately took
to the footlights again, and with the
result that he is now one of our suc
cessful American stars.
The 8eret Dlipateh 8nnday.
Among the many examples of good
American plays written by David
Higgins is "The Secret Dispatch,"
which will be given at the Illinois
next Sunday evening by a strong and
well drilled company of players. Mr.
Higgins seldom repeats himself and
don't use his old effects in his new
plays, as is the trick of several of our
plnj- writers. He- is, original iu nil
iis efforts at play making and his
efforts so far have met with success.
He has never written a failure, and
many of his dramas have stood the
test of years. "The Secret Dispatch,''
now in its second year, bids fair to
be a standard .attraction for many
seasons to come. One of the reasons
for this is that Mr. Higgins insists
that his plays, wherever presented,
shall be put on with every detail pos
sible, and in this policy lies the con
tinued popularity of all that bears

XT. V. U. IS TO BE FORMED
ien. Morgan, of Moline. has re
turned from the national encamp
ment at Washington, 1). O, of the H.
V. I', and states that on account of
the split at the convention, a new or
ganization will be formed on the old
original constitution, consisting of
the states that witlutew at the en
campment and also several more
states who are with them.
On account of the condition iu
which the convention was lien. Mor
gan would not allow his name to g-
before it as a candidate for coin-niamler-in-chief,
although he was
urged to do so and his election was
assured, but he would not permit it.
The Washington papers spoke highly
of (ien. Morgan as a candidate for
harmony but showed that they be
lieved he did right by refusing.
The preparatory work of the reor
ganization of the new order will be
commenced immediately and by No
vember, when the state convention
is held at Springfield, the delegation
will take action.
An injunction will be issued re
straining (ien. Dyrenforth from us
inir the name of the organization.
The ladies encampment was infire
harmonious, and when Mrs. Morgan
handed in her resignation, the
women appealed to her to serve
another year. They offered a sten
ographer to help her iu her work,
but she did not feel strong enough
to take up another year's work. In
appreciation of the great work she
has done for them .they presented
her with a beautiful brooch, consist

Peruna Creating a National Sensation in the Cure's
of Chronic Ailments of the Kidneys.
Mr. John Vance, of Ilartford City, Ind.,
says: "My kidney trouble is much
better. I have improved so much that
everybody wants to know what medi
cine I am using. I recommend Peruna
to everybody and some have commenced
to uso it. The folks all 6ay that if Dr.
Ilartman's medicine cures me it must be
great." JOHN" VANCE.
Mr. J. Brake, ot Petrolea, Ontario,
Canada, writes: "Four years ago I
bad a severe attack of Bright' s Dis
ease, which brought me so tow the
doctor said nothing mcv could be
done for me. I began to take Peruna
and Manalin. and in three months I
was a well man, and have continued
so ever since.""' J. Brake.
At the appearance of the first symptom
of kidney trouble, Peruna should be
taken. This remedy strikes at once the
very root of the disease. It at onee re
lieves tho catarrhal kidneys of the stag
nant blood, preventing the escape of
serum from tho blood. Peruna stimu
lates tho kidnej's to excrete from the
blood tho accumulating poison, and thus
prevents the convulsions which are sure
to follow if tho poisons are allowed to
remain. It gives great vigor to the
heart's action and digestive system, both
of which are apt to fail rapidly in this
