HAS FINE GROWTH
Congregation of Spencer Mem
orial Church Increases
MEETING OF BOARD IS HELD
Total Cost or New Edifice, Ground
and Furnishings is
At a meeting of the oflicial board
of Spencer' Memorial church a report
of all transactions connected with the
building' enterprise, together with all
bills, contracts, etc., was submitted
by the pastor, Kev. .1. U. Kutter. The
report shows the entire cost of the
building, including all furnishings, to
be $21,630.48 and the cost of the lots
$1,000, or a total expenditure of $23,
30.4S. The amount subscribed toward the
enterprise from its beginning, includ
ing what has been received and what
is expected from the church extension
society, is $1.".40((. There is an addi
tional $1.(100 which the pastor believes
he can secure.
The board feels that this is a splen
did showing in view of the fact that
the general public has not as yet been
solicited for funds. The board passed
a resolution of appreciation anl com
mendation of the pastor's manage
ment of the enterprise and of the
measure of success thus far attained
in the work.
Keports show the current expense

There is always something new un
der the sun that is every once in a
while. Something absolutely new on
the stage, however, is a rarity, but
"The Wizard .f Ox" possesses the mer
it of absolute originality in its comedy
clement. The two principal comedy
roles, the scarecrow and the tin wood
man, are declared by the metropolitan
press to be veritable pioneers in the
field of musical comedy impersona
tions that have never been approach
ed or equaled. They are distinctly in
a class of their own. The comedians
in the ikwv extravaganza include over
a score of bright lights of spontaneous
wit and infectious fun. In all spec
tacular productions the feminine con
tingent is most essential and "The
Wizard of Oz" is said to be up to the
highest standard of the 20th century
pulchritude.- The corps of femininity
includes over tio girls. It comes here
"A liun For Her Money" is coming
1i town, and every body who is for
lunatc enough to visit the Illinois on
Christmas will surely get a run for
theirs. This aggregation has won
fame in the east by its extraordinary
attractiveness and the unequaled pre
sentation of the performances. It is
built upon lines to make you laugh,
and at the same time many musical
numbers of the brightest order are in
troduced. The personnel of this or
ganization is too well known to need

".-'Ik; re Acres," which is underlined
fcr production at the Illinois next
Tuesday. This charming idyl of
American home life was written by
the late actor-dramatist, .lames A.
Ilearne. and first produced by him at
McYicker's theatre. Chicago, in May,
IS'.i. and it still continues to bask in
the sunshine of public favor. In it
career it has broken many records
for long runs, the longest being a sea
son's run at Daly's theatre. New York.
When first seen in the metropolis it was
hailed as an epoch-making work and
its author was spoken of as the Ameri
can apostle of realism and the Ameri
can Ibsen. It is unquestionably the
best play .f its kind yet written and
Mr. Hearne has fairly earned the
reputation it brought him. It has a
simple plot and tells a plain every day
story, its strength lying in its char
acterizations, which are recognized as
true types of the people who dwell
along the rock-b:und coast of Maine,
where its scenes are laid. The com
k any 'presenting r'Shoro Acres" is
made up of players of recognized abil

perly interpreting the roles assigned
to them. Mrs. Ilearne personally
superintends the rehearsals of the
play and she- is quite familiar with all
its details. There will be special new
scenery anil other necessary accessor-
great opera. It is represented as one
of the biggest, prettiest and most sen
sible of all the latest comic opera
productions, and as it is given here by
a superior company, with elaborate
costuming and stage effects, there can
be no doubt that all will desire to see
this wonderful production. Saturday
night Sonsa's "Kl t'apitan" will lie produced.

Hoyt's funny farce "A Ibinch of
Keys" will be presented Sunday by
(Ins I'.otliner's comedians. Iloyt never
wrote a better piece and ISothucr
claims to set a pace that few can fol
low in its production. "A Hunch of
Keys" provokes laughter by legitimate
comedy situations. Oddly enough, it
has a well defined plot which is never
lost sight of through an intricate maze
of graceful dancing, catchy songs,
clever stories and the fairy evolutions
of a score of show girls. "A I'.unch of
Keys," this season, has been brought
down to date the. oil plot has been
used as a vehicle to introduce a
smart company of specialty people.
