One of the most beautiful pictures
ever set on a stage is that entitled.
"While Old Glory Waves." presented by
the Al G. Field greater minstrels,
which appear here Wednesday. It is
a wilderness of patriotic color and
music, and a stage picture that once
seen will never le forgotten. The set
occurs in the spectacle. "Minstrelsy's
Tribute to the 20th Century." n beau
tiful stage picture and transformation
scene of entrancing beauty. The
camp, the march, the review are all
shown, interspersed with with original
music, taking songs, the finale ending
with big picture. "While OKI Glory
Waves." Mr. Field has expended much
time, money and energy in the pre
paration of this minstrel masterpiece.
A good war song is inspiring, and the
accessories of the camp and field are
enough to make the blood, tingle and
enthusiasm become rampant. In all
his career Mr. Field has put on noth
ing that will appeal stronger to the
car than this production.
The church, the school and the
stage are the founts from which flow
the precepts which regulate social in
tercourse with no less force than the
civil law. Ibsen" "Ghosts' is a
preachment from the stage directing
the mind to the spiritual teaching
that the "sins of the father shall be
visited upon the children." It is more
than a lesson. It is a living, throbbing
reality expressed with allthe power of
a perfect company of dramatic artists.
Albert a Gallatin is without question
as has leen testified by all who have
had the opportunity to see her one
of the greatest living actresses. Her
supporting company has won the
unique distinction of commanding the
praise rf the metropolitan papers.

! HILLED THE WOLF BUT LOST
A PAIR OF RUBBER, BOOTS
One need not go outside of Illinois
for stories of tierce encounters with
wild beasts. Over in Sfark county
Bngh Mallet went 'out for feathered
game, lie failed to bag a single thick,
but was rewarded by a tussle with
one of the biggest gray wolves that
has been seen in that locality for
many a year. Mr. Mallet is a sports
man, a" good shot and an all-round
athlete, aud having wandered some
six miles east t f Bradford, and being
without any luck in the ponds east of
there, started on a return tramp back.
I'pon arriving at a slough about two
miles from town he decided to build a
blind and see what he could do for
j ducks there. He had waited about an
j hour, when he saw approaching him
same hundred yards away a large
gray wolf. Waiting until the animal
had arrived about forty yards away,
he arose and fired a load of duck shot
into the wild beast. It gave a howl
and started like a streak the other
way. Hugh emptied the other barrel,
knocking the wolf over, and suppos
ing he had killed hir.i. dropped his
gun and ran up to the animal, which
jumped up and an encounter ensued
that made tilings lively for Hugh.
The wolf sprang at him, and before
he could retreat had fastened its
fangs in his .waders, snapping and
growling. Hugh wus game, grabbing
the wolf by the neck, ami then the fur
aid fly. After a terrific struggle Hugh
ragged the animal to a large rock
that happened to be nearby and actu
ally banged the creature's head
against the rock until it was dead.
Hugh had killed the wolf, but his
expensive rubber waders were literal
ly torn from his feet. His arms and
limbs were bitten and scratched; but
no serious or permanent injury done
him. The carcass was. taken to Brad
ford and went to Toulon, where the
county board held an autopsy as to,
paying the bounty.
