President of the Liquor Dealers'
Association Tells What

"The 1M." said President Henry Mal-
wurm. of the Illinois Liquor Dealers
Protective as.sociation, "is the 'idiotic
symbol of an untrustworthy autocrat.
It iff a s!ap at the rights of the peo
ple. R.j Faying, the president in his an
nual address tr 500 dealers, who are
asMemblevl In Peoria, recommended the
raising of a fond of $100,000 to be used
in fighting the local option bills in the
next legislature. He assailed tue local
option men vigorously, referring to the
league as a "host of misguided and un
thinking fanatics," and indicated the
porrrton of the Hqnor men "toward the
enforcement of the closing laws by de
fining the "lid."
The note of alarm was the noticea
ble feature of the reiiort, and for the
rest of the week the principal topic
of discussion at the convention will be
the raising of the $100,000 fund for
the defc-at of liquor laws at Spring
field. In dwelling on the necessity of
providing an "educational fund." Pres.
dent Malwurm spoke of the labors of
the Anti-Saloon league.
"We dare not close this report," he
said, "without warning the trade that
we must prepare for the future. The
Anti-Suloon league is already at work
and openly boasted in the beginning of
he year that it was in receipt of a
weekly revenue of Sl.utiO. Since then
it claims that the new subscriptions
have been larger than expected, saying

Recent announcement has been made
that William H. Anderson, superin
tendent of the Illinois ' Anti-Saloon
league, will be retired from the man
agement of that organization and that
James P. Burke, the attorney for Vhe
league, will succeed him.
The ouster of Superintendent Ander
son is said to be a signal change in
the legislative and political methods of
the league. Hereafter, it ia asserted,
there will be no more "mud-slinging"
and epistolary campaign attacking
members of legislative bodies.
Superintendent Anderson made a sen
sational fight for his local option b3l
at Springfield last winter, but bis meth
ods were so drastic that lie aroused
the animosity of many members of the
legislature who otherwise would have
been friendly. The result was that
local option legislation was defeated.
"Old Arkansaw" Sunday. Both in
scope and in execution "Old Arkan
saw" is said to be the best piece Fred
Raymond has ever given to the Ameri
can public. It Is now in its fifth year
of success. It is not, as some people
would suppose a blood and thunder
melo-drama with knives and shooting
but a story of the Arkansas hills. The
characters are alive. Mr. Raymond
knows the Arkansas people well, and
lias drawn their rough but sturdy char
acters with great success. The comedy
element running througa the piece is
decidedly strong and appeals to all lov
ers of good, clean comedy. The pro
duction will be seen here on Sunday
Sept. 24, complete with its carload of
new scenery and mechanical effects,
among which is Mr. Raymond's elec

A New Extravaganza. The Grand
opera house, Chicago, opened on Sun
day last with the new Julian Mitchell
ejflravagauza, "Alice and the Eight
Princesses." the book of which is by
Ulen MacDonough and the music by
Victor Herbert, and the new musical
play or extravaganza, as the program
calls it, made a positive hit. The mu
sic and book both called for unqualified
praise and the production, which was
heralded in advance as one of Julian
Mitchell's greatest efforts, easily lived
up to that reputation, for the press
without a single exception pronounced
it the greatest masterpiece of color ef
fect, gorgeous costuming, magnificent
scenery and delightful stage effects
that ever was seen on any Chicago
stage. In fact, it was a production of
such wonderful splendor that many are
of the opinion that a new standard in
the dressing of a musical p!ay has been
established and that even Julian Mitch
ell will find it hard to outvie in any
subsequent production. A new come
dian in Sam Chip as the Mad Hatter,
heretofore a stranger with Chicago au
diences, made an instant hit and was
easily accorded first honors, his sing
ing and dancing being inimtahle. Eva
Davenport n the role of Phyllis, a
Dresden Shepherdess, was also another
great hit. Personal successes were
made by Bessie Wynn. Lotta Faust.

Dear Mrs. Pinkham : I suffered a great deal during Change of Life. I flowed
steadily for eleven weeks, and it made me so weak I was in bed for three weeks.
I began taking Lydia E. Pinkham 's Vegetable Compound, although it was against
my doctor's will and I had to hide it. I took it regularly until I had taken five bottles,
and it brought me out all right, a perfectly strong, well woman. Any one can tell how
healthy I am by looking at my picture, and any one can write to me or my daughter
