"The Lighthouse JJobbery" will be
the attraction at the Illinois this ev
ening;. The play is from the pen of
the well-known author, Wendell 1
(Jetchell, and abounds in thrilling sit
uations and startling climaxes. The
cast, composed of 14 people, is headed
by Miss ICose Sartella, the well-known
leading lady, and Spenser Walker, a
sterling young actor of the romantic
school. L. Charles Hooker ' and Ma
IJelle Davis will introduce incidental
to the play tlieir famous dancing
specialty which has won them a
world-wide reputation both in this
country and in Europe. Miss lose
Sartella. a bright star of the vaude
ville world, will twinkle during the
action of the piece ami will be heard
in the latest popular and operatic
gems of the clay. Careful attention
has been paid to the scenic environ

Iteturn of Chaperons
One of the most important attrac
tions of the .'year is announced for ap
pearance at the Illinois Wednesday.
This will be Frank L. Perley's famous
company of singing comedians in the
popular travesty, "The Chaperons."
This well-known musical piece has
been before the public for nearly two
years, and has been given in nearly
every city of importance in the enst
and middle west. It enjoyed a very
prosperous engagement here last sea
son. "The Chaperons" is by Freder
ick Kanken and Isadore Witmark and
wasstageI' under the personal super
vision rf (icorge W. Lederer. Since its
tirst production the lunik has receiv
ed additions in the wav of dialogue.
comedy incidents and Jvrics from the
facile pen of the well known newspa
per humorist, (Jeorge V. llobart. The
production is said to be an unusually
pretentious one from a scenic stand
point. It is in two acts the first one
being laid in the Latin quarter of
Paris, and the second one in the court
yard of the famous Alexandria hotel
at Alexandria, Egypt. 15oth these
sets are unusually beautiful and mag
nificent specimens of the scene pain
ter's art. All will be remembered by
those who saw them last season. They
are from the studio ot .Joseph 1 hysin
oc. Careful attention has also been1
paid to the careful dcessing of the
piece; all the costumes having been
made from original water color de
signs, by the master painter, Archie
(iunn. One of the most attractive
features of "The Chaperons" is the
abundance of light and catchy melo
dies. Among the songs which were
popular last season are "In My Ofli
cial Capacity." "The Modern Chaper
on," "The Little Oirl Who Couldn't
Sav No." "Talk, Talk, Talk." "We're
Ali Good Fellows," "Love in a Palace,"
"My Sambo," "He Winked at Me." etc.

"Captain .links of the Horse Marines."-
Clyde Fitch's best comedy,,
which comes to the Illinois Thursday,
through which Elizabeth Kennedy is

story. The action of the play takes
place in New York in the early sev

princesst Three young men about
town have heard of Trentoni's beauty
and each bets $1,000 that he will suc
ceed in making an impression upon
the singer. They meet at the pier
and Captain Jinks is apparently the
favorite one. He feels, upon discover
ing the girl's real sweetness of na
ture, that his bet is a dishonorable
one and withdraws from it, determin
ing to make a sincere effort to win
her affections. In this he is success
ful, but his former friends, through
motives of jealousy, endeavor to
thwart him. They represent to the
young woman, who has become en
gaged to Jinks, that he has trifled
with her nfTections only to win the
wager and to marry her for her mon
ey. Her foster father takes the matj
ter in hand upon the night of her
operatic debut and peremptorily dis
misses Jinks. The girl is heartbroken
and determines to return to Europe.
Jinks, however, insists upon seeing
her and soon sets matters right. Miss
Kennedy, as the heroine dressed in
the quaint fashion of the period, but
beautiful in spite of that handicap,
gives full force to the humorous value
of her lines, and is said to be equally
effective in the sentimental passages.
The popularity of the play in New
York was such that all records. were
broken last season, by a run of "00
nights at the QurtUk theatre. " '
IeAoareliA at Best
It's a very droll roll that Comedian
Jefferson He Angelis has in "The Em
erald Isle," the last Sir Arthur Sulli
van opera, which we are to see here
Friday. It's that of a wayside enter
tainer, a happ-go-lucky. never se
rious charlatan of the highway. If
you would enjoy an impersonation of
a typical Irishman, the broth of a
boy with red beard, stumpy clay
pipe, shillelagh and comic grimace,
the strolling mimic pokes his head in
to a bag he carries, turns his back on
you for an ace, and presto! the Celt
of the comic papers is before you.
If it's a Frenchman you'd see and
hear, one of the jesticulating I'ari
isians, with quick, short, mincing
steps, lo and behold! he is before you.
If you'd have a rabbit taken alive
from your ow n coat pocket, or a sinu
ous snake from yur sleeve, just say
so, and wonders! the rabbit and snake
comfort you in impossible friendship.
The opera enjoyed a run of 'a whole
year at the Savoy theatre, in Lon
don, and comes here after a long and
eminently successful engagement at
the New York Herald Square thea

The company includes Lilly Clark,

The title of a "Koyal Slave," which

and soft vistas of purple leagues; all
that is beautiful and grand in nature.
Clarence Dennett carries with him
a strong personality, a charming in-

BAN ON DIVORCEES
Davenport Ministers Will Not
ants. A STRONG RESOLUTION ADOPTED
The Approach of a Serlonn Mo'r
al Crista Is
At a meeting of the Davenport Min
isterial association held yesterday
morning resolutions were unanimous
ly adopted, the sense of which was
that the ministers of the Protestant
churches and creeds :f Davenport
bind themselves not to officiate at any
wedding in which either of the par
ties to .the union have at any time fig
ured as the guilty party to a suit for
divorce. This matter has been under
discussion among the ministers of
the city for some time past, but it
had never come to a head before.
During the past few years govern
ment statistics show that the propor
tion of divorces granted has grown
most, dangerously fast, reparation re
storing the rights of unmarried cou
ples being given to couples disgrunt
led at each other with such freedom
as to seriously imperil the sanctity
of that institution so dear to Ameri
cans, the home.
The text of the resolution follows:
"I'e it resolved, That we will only
consent to remarry those whom we
believe to have been the innocent par
ties to a divorce; and that we will
aid each other in the enforcement of
this resolution." The matter was the
subject of some little discussion, but
all of the clergymen present were
unanimous in their approval of the
Many Canses for Divorce.
The discussion of the matter
brought forth some interesting sta
tistics, many of which have been
gathered by Lev. A. K. Montgomery,
rector of Trinity church, Kpiscopa
linn. Lev. Montgomery recently un
dertook a thorough investigation of
the subject. He was unable to secure
many purely local statistics as to
the proportion of divorces on account
of the fact that divorces eases in
common with many other classes of
legal proceedings are docketed under
the head of equity cases, in the dis
trict court, but from the reports of
1-abor Commissioner Carroll D.
Wright and from articles on the ques
tion he discovered that there are 42
causes in this country which form
grounds for an aKsoIute divorce, with
the privilege of remarriage accorded
to both parties. Tn no state do all of
these causes hold good in the stat
utes, but in each state there are four
or five causes for divorce. A little
shifting' of place of residence would
thus render it possible for most any
one to secure relief from irksome
matrimonial bonds, for the A'2 causes
are broad enough to cover the whole
category of sins.
What the Bennlt Will He
The Catholic clergy of the city, and
of the world for that matter, will not
officiate at the remarriage of a di
vorcee, and with the added force of
the 12 clergymen who agreed to the
resolution yesterday there should be
som little damper on the freedom of
divorce which at present prevails in
Davenport. The? clergy regards the
rapid increase in the number of di
vorces given to indicate the approach
of a serious moral crisis and is de
termined to do all which lies within its
power to discourage the practice of
hasty divorce and remarriage.
Sinn Reward lo
The readers of this paper will be
pleased to learn that there is at least
one dreadful disease that science has
been able to cure in all its stages, and
that is catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cure
is the only positive cure-known to the
medical fraternity. Catarrh being a
constitutional disease, requires a con
stitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh
Cure is taken internally, acting di
rectly upon the blood and mucous
surfaces of the system, thereby de
stroying the foundation of the dis
ease, and giving the. patient strength
by building up the constitution and
assisting nature in doing its work.
The proprietors have so much faith
in its curative powers that they offer
$100 for any case that it fails to cure.
