The loafers are entitled to the medal
as entertainers. They had made elab
orate preparations, far surpassing
tneir former efforts. Three thousand
sandwiches were exposed in the Edg

sounded. Steaming coffee, milk that
would bring one of those smiles that
won't come off to a babv, and spark

The greater 'part of the morning
was occupied with the initiation cere
monies, as there were many on hand
who had not received the loafers'
first degree. The candidates were as
sembled in a room on the second storv
and one by one were oblig-ed to slide
down a smooth-surfaced toboggan, at
the bottom rf which it was dark as
night. The tenderfoot, on reaching
the bottom, would roll through a cur
tain and into a large room, where he
found assembled his more fortunate
brothers who had already ridden the
A Few Lore Taps.
The next step in the initiation was
in laying the candidates across a bar
rel, face down, and warming his trous
ers with n pair of paddles swung by
two of the strongest men in the vil
lage. He was then permitted to join
the crowd and sit in and give the
laugh to those that followed. Some
there were who objected to the spank

said that it spared them. On the con

tleman from Rock Island had a bottle
of snnke-bite medicine in his pistol
pocket. The second blow that was
struck by the official spanker caught
the bottle in the neck and the con

ON HENNEPIN THIS YEAR
The government engineers in chargi
of the work on the Hennepin canal
and feeder are making the necessary
preparations for the work of build
ing the great government dam across
Rock river to supply the feeder, near
sterling. It is now being planned to
build the dam during the next sum
mer at the place where the engineers
first made their plans for it, and it
is likely that work will be begun as
soon as possible in the spring on thi
the biggest undertaking in the project
for the canal. Most of the material
for the concrete work on the dam
has been prepared for use and piled
up on the south bank of the river
near the end of the feeder. The rest
of it will be procure! as soon as possi
ble and the estimates for it are be
ing made out bv the engineers now
It was thought some time ago that
this part of the work would not be
commenced this year, but that the
entire attention of the government
would be directed to the building of
oruiges anil the big aqueduct over
Green river. This arrangement has
been changed lately, however, and if
nothing in the, way of changing the
location cf the dam is accomplished
by the Sterling Hydraulic company
before spring, the dam will be built
as stated above on the original site.

pable one in all respects. The com

The play is to be seen at the Burtis

A new home for the 2,000 mem
bers of the Actors Society of America
is to be expected in the near future,
the institution having outgrown its
present accommodations at 114 West
Fortieth street. New York. The build
ing will cost $100,000, and will stand
unique in the theatrical world in pur
pose, size, and appointments. The ex
act location of the new house has not
been chosen, but undoubtedly be in
the theatre district between Thirtieth
and Forty-fifth streets, near Broad
Most of the ten floors will be occu
pied by the Actors' society itself, this
being their national headquarters. In
addition, special accommodations are
to be provided for managers offices
and it is proposed to make this build
ing the center of theatrical agencies
V miniature theatre for rehearsals
will be one of the features that should
attract many managers suffering from
inadequate quarters for experiment
ing in state effects anil in "trying out'
candidates. This innovation will also
be greeted as a boon by members of
the profession, often compelled to
fret their hour" of trial in the eight
by ten space of a manager's ofliee.
A restaurant, gymnasium, swimming
tank, library, billiard halls, and gen
ral recreation rooms wil be equipped
by the society for its members, who
extend from coast to coast. The in-
eption of the building plan occurred
at a recent me?ting of the society's
directors, and was appropriately dra
mafic in itself. The need of larger iic-
ommodations for the 2.000 members
have long been realized, n-nd the mat
ter came to a head when after an en
thusiastic discussion t:f the question at
the directors meeting William Court
leigh, the president, threw a $100 bill
on the center of the table as the nest
gg. Bills then rained until eerv
ne of the 22 prominent actor direc
tors had added his contribution. Five
thousand dollars are now in the fund.

Thursday in "Rudolph and Adolph."
The first act takes place in the home
of Rudolph Dinkelspiel., a horse doc
tor. This character is played by
Charles A. Mason, long known as one
f the cleverest and funniest delinea
tors of the eccentric German charac
ter on the stage. Rudolph, during the
absence of his wife, has rented a
urnished flat in an apartment build
ing. S.taing with him is a young
friend. Jack Marden. His servants
include a cook of pugilistic tendencies.
by name Rosalind McGovem, and a
maid. The maid is in reality the sou
brette of the Casino; she is to pla
a slavery character in the next pro
duction there, and wishing to know
her character at first hand has en
gaged to have her understudy play
her role in the piece then, running so
that she can go forth and accumulate
actual experience. The flat across the
hall from Rudolph has been rented by
Adolph Dinkenspeil. a ladies' tailor,
plaved by H. P. Mason, another ex
ceptionally clever German dialectician.
His wife has been away on a visit, and
coining home unexpectedly, on en
quiring for Mrs. Dinkenspeil's apart
ments, she is directed to that of Ru
dolph. There she proceeds to make
herself very much at home. When
Budolph arrives he finds a charming
young woman comfortably domiciled
in his flat. Moreover, the young wo
man greets his most affectionately,
mistaking him for her husband. To
this be does not seriously object until
his own wife arrives. Then he tries
to get rid c.f his visitor, who strenu
ously refuses to leave. To add to the
complications Adolph appears upon
the scene. From this point the situ
ations come with unusual rapidity til!
Rudolph and Adolph discover that
their troubles are caused by their
marked resemblance. Then each makes
up his mind to shave, and as they still
look alike, their troubles begin all
fiver again. The third act of the play
is a decided noxeltv. The action takes
place in Adolph's dressmaking estab
lishment. Rudolph. h never, has pur
chased an interest in the business, and
much to the chagrin of Adolph and the
bewilderment of his patrons, he brings
his horse phraseology and method
into his new occupation. During the
ict ion of the play numerous special
ties are introduced by Mason and Ma
son, who are clever singers and danc
ers, and the other members of the
company, assisted by a chorus of par
ticularly pretty girls. In the cast a,rc
