A corps ;f trained nurses led by
Miss Blanch Bates is the latest Chi
cago development of the Uuian-.Jn-
anehe war. Miss Hates corps .f
nurses will assist the Japanese forces
th-it is. if her offer is accepted. They
will be tendered through Or. Nicholas
Senn. who'is expected to have charts
of the field hospital work of the .Ja
iiiicst' army. Miss Hates, who lived in
Japan for four years and is acquaint
ed with many t.f the prominent cili
ens of the country, declares she i.
deeply attached to the Flowery king
dom, 'i he corps, it is proposed, will
be orani.e;l in Chicago at Mi Mates'
I'xpenve. Several f her theatrieal
friends are expected to assist her,
but Ihe working members of the corps
will be selected from traininir .schools
A major porti.n of the difficulties
which are reported to have beset
Walker Whiteside during- the past two
days appear from a later and more
severe scrutiny of the facts to be re
duced to a mere matter of vengeance
on the part of the discharged thes
pians of Mr. Whiteside's company
rather than an affair f despotic over
bcarance by Mr. Whiteside. Kngaging
stories of hard luck frt rn the lips of
the sometime l-aertes to the effee
that Mr. Whiteside is a tyrant and
rulhlesslv sla.-hc:! the salary roll in
twain for the repair of his own for
tunes are denied with a vehemence by
those who wer) intimately acquainted
with the detail.- of he transactions
lending i:p t the loss of several
courtiers of he terpischorcan muse
in f lif employ of Mr. Whiteside. Thurs
day four member.; of the company
v.t're dropped from tin salary roll,
the reason for which Mr. Whiteside
ha ina'c public after hearing the
tntet:ients of the released actors, be
can'? they were lacking in ability to
o:v;;y !iiike.)iai'!in roles assijrne-.l
I them. Early in the season when Mr.
vvnuesice visitett hock island jn ms
C(miiy, "We Are Kins'. these actors
were in his cast, ami while proving
themselves capable of meritorious
w rk in this play, they were not deem
ed able to carry out the more severe
task of delineating Shnkespeare. Af-
nated jn the bond." The discharjreJ
thespians stated that in response to
an appeal from Mr. Whiteside they
had voluntarily lowered their salaries
to a point far below an adequate com
pensation for their abilities and Had
contributed in many other ways 10
the financial dramatic worth of the
production. an. 'I yet they received
thanks with the reverse Knavish.
It is n;t rt all surprising that "The
Silver Slipper."" John C. Fisher's mu
sical play, should have interested New-
Yorkers for six months, and when it
quickly become popular. One num
ber in particular that will be bound to
stand out very strong is the "Four and
Twenty Little Men." 5if by Ann
Tyrell. assisted by a chorus of :.4 wo
men and "4 men. This soji-t is novel
in effect and is a catchy tune. The
1M men taking part are seated in
chairs arranged in slantin.tr line across
the .-tape. In the las't verse 24 yenntr
women richly attired 5?i evenlrii jjowns
appear I ehind- the chairs and the exit
of this cho-iis of 4S i ci-til'.iou like In
effect and is quite unlike ;luvthin
ever seen in a musical play, "l.ik the
costume?, and the men afternoon
dress of brown. Other musical num
bers that quickly beccme popular
favorites are the topical songs, "Then
Fd Hv Satisfied With Life." "The (iir!
You Love." "The Haby With the Dim
ple and the Smile." "(iirl Wanted."
"You and Me." "Two Kyes of Hlue."
"Tessie. You are the Only. Only." and
"She Didn't Knew Km ugh About the
Game." .The : ensation of the play
will be found in the "champagne
dance." in which six young women
in black embroidered dresses, and six

tcr sati-fing himst-if on this score
Mr. Whiteside at once secured belter
talent and gave notice to his then
present '"members that their services
would no longer be required and the
reasons stated. Their engagement
was scheduled to terminate in Dav
enport, which it did. and upon leaving
the company the retiring members
were given their salaries and trans
portation to New York, a piece of
charity on the part of Mr. Whiteside
which he claims war; not "denomi-
is taken into consideration that it N
one f the ni-st magnificently staged
and expensively gowned un.i v:-tunied
musical pla v s produced in t his count ry.
"The Sliver Slipper" with its complete
produotun in every detail, all the
dazzling soorie and lighting effects,
1l;e experivo gowns and costumes
and a cast that would be hard to
duplicate, will I)- seen hi-re tomorrow
evening. Musically it is strong, there
being :." musical numbers in a!!, many
f-T them if the whistleable kind thai
"Pretty Maiden" scMet that added so
much to the fame i f "i'lorodora."
by ihe same author, i- the extet song
called "Come. Little (iirl." It is simi
lar In action to the former sextet
but there is nothing reminiscent
about the music of the song, which is
luneful and catchy. Like its prede
cessor, it is performed hv six young
women and six young men and is, if
anything, even more elaborately cos
fumed than the other. Tlu voting
women wear gorgeous green spangled
pate. The "iris are considered the best
dancers from (icorge Mdvv aides' Lon
don Gaiety theatre, and were brought
to this country under contract to Mr.
Fisher e-pocially for this dance. The
dance is a decided novelty. It is whirlwind-like,
the dancers kicking, whirl
ing and dancing about the stage in
a madcap "Fienohy" wav. but in a
manner that i entirely inoffensive,
just the slightest bit of lingerie show
ing at any lime while the dance is; on.
The company is one of the highest sal
aried ever sent on tour. in a musical
comedy and numbers l-." in all.
The announced attraction here next
Wednesday is the very popular produc
tion of the musical farce comedy,
"Happy Hooligan. which comes to us
this season as an entirely new produc
tion, embellished with new and taste
ful scenery. As the costumes and
scenery are new. so are alsi the
specialties, music, dancers and en
sembles. There Is a cheelfulness and
gaiety about Mr. Opper's genial hobo,
which, when put in dramatic form,
makes his influence well nigh irresis
tible. When the curtain goes up the
most chronic case of dejection gives
way to good feeling, and the misau
tlm c becomes at once a creature
who views life with rays of the sun
shining in his mind. There are no
dumps, blue devils, vapors, megrim
or hypochondriasis in "Happy Hooli
gan." Indeed there is life, alacrity of
spirit and pure hilarity, which never
fails to siuoith the ruffled brow of
care and palliate menancholy. W. H.
Mack will be seen this season as the
hobo, and .Mae Phelps as Mischief.
Others of prominence in the company
are Campbell and Caulfield. Harry S.
McKee. Alice Gilmore. Mabel Stanley,
Helen Donnelly. Lillian 1'obson. Kva
Ta.vlor. Hessie Sharp and the famous
Wonderful Advance of Science.
Wonderful as were the scientific
achievements of the 101 h century, it
seems certain that, in the domain of
applied science and invention, the -0th
century will far surpass it. We doubt
very much, how ever, that anyone "w ill
be able to produce a safer or more
reliable remedy for stomach, liver or
kidney ill than Hostetter's Stomach
Hitters. It was a 1'Jth century pro
duction, being first introduced .10
years ago. and to this day represents
the limit of science in producing a
remedy that will positively cure loss
of appetite, sour ' stomach, impure
blood, indigestion, dyspepsia, liver ami
kidney troubles and malaria. A fail
trial will convince you o its value.
