F0RWI1HG NEW LEAGUE
Four Cities Agree to Join With
Terre Haute and Evans
ville. SALaEY : LIMIT . TO BE $1,200
Toledo May Be Oae of the Towns In
. the Central Clr
cult. fiix cities already have agreed to
take franchises in the new Central
league. They are Terre Haute, Ev
ansville, Marion. Fort Wayne, Dayton,
Ohio, and Wheeling1, W. Va. Several
others are anxious to secure places
and are expected to be well repre
sented at the league meeting to be
helil at Indianapolis or Marion in the
near future. President Smith, of the
Terre Haute association, says iat if
Toledo drops out of the American as
sociation, a in all probability it will,
it will join 'the new Central league.
Toledo cannot afford to pay the sal
ary necessary to remain in the Amer
ican, but could put up good baseball
at the. salary of the Central league.
The limit of $1,200 already has been
fixed and will be closely adhered to
by all cities in the circuit.
Grand Kaplda a Candidate
Grand Uapids, Mich., also desires
permission to play in the Central
league. It is a city which can play to
100,000 persons. The club may branch
into Michigan and may go sonth. It
has been suggested to organize teams
in Covington and Newport, Ky. Mr.
Smith estimates that Evansville,
Terre Haute and Marion will play to
50,000 people each next season and
some of the other cities in the new
league ma5' do even better than that.
The Heat Remedy for Croup.
From the Atchison (Kans.) Daily
Globe: This is the season when the
woman who knows the best remedies
for croup ' is in demand in every
neighborhood. One of the most terri
ble things in the world is to be awak
ened in the middle of the night by a
whoop from one of the children. The
croup remedies are almost as sure to
be lost, in case of croup, as a revolver
is sure to be lost in case of burglars.
There nsed to be an old-fashioned
remedy for croup, known as hive syr
up and tolu, but some modern moth
ers say that Chamberlain's Cough
Kennedy is better, and does not cost
so much. It causes the patient to
"throw tjp the phlegm" quicker, and
gives relief in a shorter time. Give
this remedy as soon as the croupy
cough appears and it will prevent the
attack. It never fails and is pleasant
and safe to take. For sale by all
There is no cough medicine so popu
lar as Foley's Honey and Tar. It con
tains no opiates or poisons and never
fails to cure. All druggists.

production of the weird, though beau

night, has absorbed the interest of
society as well as the theatergoing
public in general. "On the Quiet" is
a refined, high class and dignified
comedy. It is interesting in story,
sparkling in dialogue, and original in
wit. Mr. Ross role admirably fits
his quaint humor, natural methods,
and quickness of action. This clever
comedy is considered the greatest
work of Mr. Thomas, who is re
sponsible for "Soldiers of Fortune,"
"Arizona," "In Mizzoura," "Alabama,"

"The Power Behind the Throne,"
Theodore Kremer's phenomenally suc

Willard's tour ldst season was mark

Many return dates were played, and
on each occasion Miss Willard played

ures never seen before.
The Illinois theatre, Chicago, will
present for its Thanksgiving attrac
tion the Klaw Sr Erlanger Opera com
pany in a new comic effusion by
Harry II. Smith and Gustave Kerker,
entitled "The Billionaire." The stel
lar member of the cast is Jerome
Sykes, a well-known operatic com
edian who will be remembered es
pecially for his performance of
VFoxv Quiller." Messrs. Klaw Kr
langer have surrounded Mr. Svkes
with altogether the largest and best
company engaged in the presentation
of comic opera for the present day
Among the principal singers are the
Misses Eleanor Kent, Nellie Follis,
Marie Doro and May Robson the hit
er, probably, the best comedienne for
extravagant roles on the American
stage. The gentlemen in the support
include Julius Steger, Harry Mac
lonough, Thomas Leary, Harry Kel
ly, John C. Kenned v and others. Those
of our readers who are familiar with
comic opera companies of the last
few years will recognize in this ar
ray of talent a group of popular fa
vorites which it would be impossible
to equal. This fact, coupled with the
information that the chorus is as
comely, tidy and dressy as it is large
in numbers, will assure a visit to the
Illinois by everyone visiting Chicago
during the fortnight this attraction
remains at the popular theatre on
Jackson boulevard. "The Billionaire"
itself is conceived in a high vain of
humor, which is carried out in a
thoroughly successful manner,
There is a delicate thread of satire
throughout the book, which is direct
ed against the whims and idiosyncra
sies of the sudden rich and some
members of the very rich, who are
wont to dazzle Europe with their ex
travagant expenditures of coin of the
realm: It will be readily understood
that this is very unctions field for the
comic opera librettist and Mr. Smith
is said to have taken excellent ad
vantage of the opportunity. The
music by Gustave Kerker may be ac
cepted as all right. His score for
"The Belle of New York" established"
Mr. Kerker in the front rank of com
posers on both continents. When it
comes to staging productions of every
kind, no firm of theatrical caterers
in America today compares with that
of Klaw & Erlanger. Recollections of
"Ben Hur," "The Sleeping Beauty and
the Beast," the Rogers Brothers' va
rious productions, "Foxy Quiller," and
numberless other successes attest the
superiority, not to say the extrava
gance of these gentlemen. The en
gagement legan last night and
will continue two weeks with n speci
al holiday matinee Thanksgiving day.

CHANGE OF CLIMATE
Not Xeceaaayy In Order to Care Catarrh.
The popular idea that the only cure
for chronic catarrh is a change of cli
mate is a mistake, because catarrh is
found in all climates in all sections of
the country; and even if a change cf
climate should benefit for a time the
catarrh will certainly return.
Catarrh may be readily cured in any
climate, but the only way to do it is
to destroy or remove from the sys
tem the catarrhal germs which cause
all the mischief.
The treatment by inhalers, sprays,
powders jind washes has been proven
almost useless in making a perma
nent cure, as they do not reach the
seat of disease, which is in the blood
and can be reached only by an inter
nal remedy which acts through the
stomach upon the blood and system
A new discovery which is meeting
with remarkable success in curing ca
tarrh of the head, throat ami bron
chial tnbes and also catarrh of the
stomach, is sold by druggists under
name of Stuart's Catarrh Tablets.
These tablets, which are pleasant
and harmless to take, owe their effi
ciency to the active medicinal prin
ciples of blood roo.t, red gum and a
new specific called gnaiacol, which.
together with valuable antiseptics,
are combined in convenient, palata
ble tablet form, and as valuable for
children as for adults.
A. R. Fernbank, of Columbus, Ohio,
says: "I suffered so many winters
from catarrh that I took it as a mat
ter of course, and that nothing would
cure " it except a change of climate.
which mv business affairs would not
permit me to take.
"My nostrils were almost alway
clogged up; I had to breathe through
the mouth, causing an inflamed, irri-
lated throat. The thought of eating
breakfast often nauseated me nnd the
catarrh gradually getting into my
stomach took away my appetite and
"My druggist advised me to try a
"0-ceiit box of Stuart's Catarrh Tab
lets, because he said he had so many
customers who had been cured of ca
tarrh by the use of these tablets that
he felt he could honestly recommend
them. I took his advice and used sev
eral boxes, with results that surpris
ed and delighted me.
"I always keep a box of Stuart's
Catarrh Tablets in the house and the
whole family use them freely on the
first appearance of a cough or cold
in the head.
"With our children we think there
is nothing so snfe and reliable as Stu
art's Catarrh Tablets to ward olf
croup and colds, and with older peo
ple I have known of cases where the
hearing has been seriously impaired
by chronic catarrh cured entirely by
this new remedy."

Stepped Arainst a Hot Stove.
A child of Mrs. George T. Benson,
when getting his usual Sunday night
bath, stepped back against a hot
stove which burned him severely.
The child was in great agony and his
mother could do nothing to pacify
him. Remembering that she had a
bottle of Chamberlain's Pain Balm in
the house, she thought she would try
it. In less than half an hour after
applying it the child was quiet and
asleep, and in less than two weeks
was well. Mrs. Benson is a well
