Among the attractions booked by
Manager George II. Gorman for De
cember, are "The Wizard of Oz," Grand
Opera company, George Sidney in
"Buzzy Izzy," and "Vanity Fair."
"To Die at Dawn," scheduled for a
local appearance last night, failed to
materialize. Whether it was a case of
stranded, poor railroad connections
or lost in the woods, is not known at
this end of the line.
"The Fatal Wedding." a sensational
melodrama, has been booked for
Songs that reach the heart, witti
cisms that will bring smiles, comedy
that will cause laughter and sensa
tional climaxes that will thrill all who
ity and worldiness. Col. Schwartz,
an old retired German officer, has the
old paternal views of absolute su
premeacy as head of his household.
Mada, the daughter, who after 12
years absence from iiome, during
which time -he has achieved wealth
and fame as a singer, returns to her
native town to take chief part in the
carnival musical festival. Slie is in
duced to return to her stern old fath
er's home, at the same time realizing
that with her old freedom and broad
ened views she will never be able to
submit tu her father's unconditional
"go there." "come here," "do this,"
"don't do that." On her first day's
return home she meets her old lover,
now a government chancellor, who
had betrayed her. In the scene of
recognition her father conies in and
eventually surmises the state of af
fairs. A duel is about to take place
between the old colonel and the chan

Southern Indiana, where Lost river
flows turbulently for six miles on the
surface and disappears in a subter
ranean channel as suddenly as it rises,
is the picturesque locality chosen by
Joseph Arthur for his big scenic dra
ma, "Lost Eiver." While sensational
incidents are frequent and strong
dramatic situations terminate every
act. there is a rural simplicity anil
sweetness in the quieter scenes of the
play which evoke tender memories,
so that "Lost Eiver" appeals with
equal force to occupants of the par
quet and gallery. The plot is some
what intricate, but the main theme is
the love of Hob Plessing, a young con
tractor, the junior partner of Middle
ton & Plessing, who are building the
aqueduct over Lost river, for Ora, the
little Hoosier heroine. Plessing, how
ever, is engaged to his partner's
daughter, Gladys, who is recuperating
at the fashionable West Baden
tails with the chancellor, when she
learns he will not publicly acknowl
edge their child. This passes the
limit of Magda's forbearance and with
lashing words of contempt she breaks
off the proposed marriage. Jn the last
great scene the father endeavors to
force her consent, and in the final
tragic ending dies by a paralytic
stroke. It is a play pf absorbing hu
The production of Brandon Tynan's
play, "Kobert Emmet, the Days of
1S03," by Manager J. Wesley Bosen
quest at the Illinois this evening
promises to be an event of unusual
importance in dramatic circles. It will
be a performance of the highest merit
from more than one standpoint. The
play is based on a most interesting
historical subject, and the author is
said to have gone to extreme pains
to reproduce several of the scenes his
torically correct in detail. One of the
most dramatic portions of the work
is the trial of Emmet in the Green
street court, and the great speech of
the young patriot is woven deftly in-

Springs not far away and who in re
venge for the slight makes no end of
trouble for little Ora. This is finally
cleared by the discovery that Ora is
the half sister of Gladys, her father
having contracted a former marriage,
secretly. Blessing has a number of
exciting adventures, including a strike
among his laborers on the aqueduct
who threaten his life. Once again as
he rides his wheel along the towpath
of the canal at top speed to avoid a
coming storm his life is threatened.
The villian with uplifted knife is even
with Blessing's rear -wheel when lit
tle Ora, who is riding fast to overtake
them, fires a shot from her revolver
which shatters the villian's wrist. A
peal of thunder drowns the sound of
the shot and the hero rides on uncon
scious of his narrow escape. The pan
oramic scenery for this incident in
vests all the figures with an appear
ance of riding at a terrific pace, while
the sound of thunder, wind, rain and
vivid lightning flashes add to the
realism. "Lost River" will appear at
Illinois tomorrow evening.
Miss Eugenie Blair, the well-known
emotional actress, will appear at the
Illinois Dec. 3 in Sudermann's master
piece, as Magda. Miss Blair, who was
so favorably received here last season
in "Zaza," is making a most artistic
success as Magda. A perfect produc
tion, as used by Mrs. Patrick Camp
bell, and a splendid company accom
pany Miss Blair. Magda describes
the conflict between paternal autho;-
to the scene, interspersed with the
wrathy interjections of Lord Norbury.
The villainy of the castle spy, Jones,
is brought out prominently with the
nefarious doings of Maj. Sirr. while
the dashing- outlaw, Michael Dwyer,
forms a striking contrast to the quiet
er personality of the young leader. All
the characters are said to be drawn
and fashioned after descriptions of
the actual personages. In point of
handsome scenery Manager . Bosen
quest's production will excel anything
thathasever been done in Irish drama,
and as there have been some verj
elaborate performances at his own
theatre during recent years, this is
saying a good deal. The mountain re
treat of Dwyer is ODe of the most
massive scenes ever placed on the
stage. It is over 30 feet high and
fills the stage to a depth of 50 feet.
The court room in Green street is
made from photographs of the origi
nal place, as is the Dame street scene.
The cast of the characters, which
numbers nearly thirty people, is filled
with some of the most eminent pla3'
ers in this country. Among them are
Kobert Conness, Luke Martin, J. P.
Sullivan, Owen Fawcett, Edward
O'Connor, Fulton Russell, James
Moorfield, Angela Russell, Etta Baker
Martin, Nellie Bobson, Julia Folland
and many others of the original cast.

There tlie Tide of Social London
Flovx to the I''ulleat.
1 Ji.'ciulilly seems eokl and blatant by
contrast as one charges down it. Yet
even here, be the sunshine ever so
bright, the visitor is crowned in the
pearly haze that tones, attenuates, uni
ces, most if not all of London, that
haze that has tantalized and defeated
how many artists! Even over Piccadil
ly, even over this the most mundane of
all London streets, it throws its saving
glamour. Indeed the whole splendid
avenue might serve for a studio, not
for its values alone, but for the com
plexity of the types that throng it. It
is the quintessence of London, the dis
tillation of all London humanity, to be
studied nowhere so narrowly as from
a bus top. Perfect Du Mauriers in the
original approach, pass by and are left
behind or stand in groups looking from
the club windows. Phil Mays in the
life swarm beneath one, and characters
from Thackeray and Dickens jostle
unsuspectingly on the sidewalk. The
clubs alone, which never look so thor
oughly clubbable as when hastily
glanced at from a passing bus, will
store one's memory with a hundred
recognizable types. All England, all
the empire, indeed, sooner or later finds
its way to Piccadilly. One cannot pass
down it without a sight of some glit
tering, turbaned, alien figure, majes
tically isolated, majestically unheeded.
Regent street may claim a grander
sweep, and by virtue of its shops u
more devoted femininity, but it is along
Piccadilly that the tide of social Lon

The Milks' Emulsion Co.. Terre Haute, Intl.;
Gentlemen: As I often tell my friends. Milks' Emulsion saved my life. Afld I
feel that the least I can Uo would be not to confine such strong evidence s I can offer
to my acquaintance alone, but to give it to you for publication if you see fit. In the
winter of 1W01 and 1902 I suffered a severe attack of pleurisy. Heint? man&tter of a
la rye retail shoe store in Dayton. O., at that time, I found it imiKissible to remain
away from the store long enough to receive proper medical attention. This resulted
tn my beintr compelled to irive up my iosition in the spring. After a rest. I came to
Terre Haute and accepted n iitioii with the J. H. Walsh Shoe Co. My old trouble
soon returned and, after a preat dead of doctoring, the physicians here advised an
operation, and. upon opening my side, they removed one quart of water and tu9.
which was due, the doctors wid. to a neglected case of pleurisy. After the first opera
tion my health continued to fail, until i was an object of sympathy from all my
friends. It reduced me from a strong athlete of one hundred and eighty pounds to
one hundred and thirty-six pounds. Physicians told me I had lunu trouble and in
ortlr to save my life I must leave this climate and iro to Colorado. By this time I
hadn't strentrth enough left to make the trip and decided the best place for me would
lie with my parents at Hamilton, O. My friends and co-employes, who took me to
the depot, were fearful that I would never make the trip home alive. After a few
days' rest at home, my father took me to a noted specialist at Cincinnati, where I
was apain operated on and received treatment, but was finally compelled to return
home without beincr benefitted. By this time I was thoroughly discouraped and ready
to irive up all hope, having undergone four operations with the knife, in that many
months. About that time, however. Miss Kathryn Koach. 120 South Fifth street.
Terre Haute. Ind.. sent me a package containing a box of Milks' Emulsion, .which
Miss Koach wrote me had been highly recommended to her by friends in Terre
Haute. After using the first box. I felt greatly benefitted and wrote Miss Roach to
send me two more boxes by mail at once. Hy the time I had used the three boxes of
Milks' Emulsion I felt strong enough to leave for Terre Haute, where I arrived about
September I. 102. I continued to use your Emulsion and improved so rapidly that it
was only a short time until I was able, to return to my duties with the J. B. Walsh
Shoe Co. I have not undergone any more operations and my lungs and entire system
are as strong as ever. I have gained over tweuty-tive pounds in weight and feel as
healthv as I ever did. I feel it my duty to suffering humanity to explain what a
godsend Milks' Emulsion has leen to me. No man can appreciate my feelings for
this truly wonderful remedy unless he has at some time been able to turn back from
the very brink of the grave.
Wishing you the success you so richly deserve. I remain.
Sincerely yours, John C. Schneideb, with the J. B. "Walsh Shoe Co.,
