Has Been Great Success. The in-

is now centered in the approachin.j; en
ua4enient f the New York and Un-
don niusical success entitled "The
School Girl." which comes to the Illi
nois theater Wednesday. As is well
known the music of "The School Girl"
is by the composer of "Florodora," and
is generally said to be that author's
bci work. The production was f!rst
presented at the Prince of Wales the
ater in liondcn. where it ran for more
than 4"ti nights, and was then brought
to Daly's theater in New York city,
where it was enthusiastically received
for 1.V) nights. "The School Girl" I

bo said to have been begun at the Met
nip!itan opera house. New York, last I
spring, when this favorite actress was
given the largest testimonial ever
known in this country. This affair,
the sjKnsi.rs of which were no less fa
mous people than Isnace Jan Pader
ewki Mrs. Grover Cleveland. Richard
Mansfield. Daniel Frohman and Rich
ard Watson Gilder, at'racied a throng
of nearly .txo jteople. who paid an ag
Sivsa: of over 15.mmi for that final
o;.poitunlty to show their appreciation
ej the grat artiste. Telegrams and
cablegrams from prominent persons,
including kings, emperors and lesser
ruler from all over the world, were
received by Modjeska on that night.
No such enthusiasm was ever before
stroued by a FingL personality as that
expressed when Afodjt'ska made . her
appearance on that occasion, and it Is
"My Wife's Family" Tonight. Ste
phens and Linton's merry musical
laughing comedy of complications in
three acts, "My Wife's Family," is at
(lie Illinois tonight. Everywhere pre
sented last season, it called for return
dates, such entire satisfaction did both
play and players give. The spry of
the comedy is based on the much ma
ligned mother-in-law topic, and wa
built for toughing purpos.es only. It
has served its object well. Bot
Messrs. Stephens and Linton are pro
line writers or lyrics and comedv, as
well as performers of note, consequent
ly are fully conversant with the wants
of the theater-going public.
"Two Johns" Thursday. Next
Thursday. Nov. 23. at the Illinois, w
will have "The Two Johns." that for
ever successful . musical comedy-by J
C. Stewart, which comes to this conn
try for a tour after an absence of 1
years in Europe, where it repeated the
success it had here. Of course, it has
been brought up to date since its las
appearance here, by the interpolation
of new jokes, and songs. Judging
from the cast, the company should be
first class in every respect, for they are
all people of reputation. The costumes
are said to be very elaborate.
Inflammatory Rheumatism Cured in
Morton L. Hill, of Lebanon, Ind.
says: "My wife had inflammatory
rheumatism in every muscle and joint
her suffering was terrible and her body
and face were swollen almost beyond
recognition; had been in bed for six
weeks and had eight physicians, but
received no benefit until stie tried the
Mystic Cure for Rheumatism. It gave
immediate relief and she was able to
walk about in three days. I am sure U

Drugg'st H. O. Rolfs Tells the People
Quickest Means to Cure It.
Asked one day in his store the ques
tion, "What is good for bronchitis?'
Mr. Rolfs our well known druggist.
answered: "For years old-fashioned
cod liver oil has been known to pos
sess the most remarkable curative
and healing properties for throat
j bronchial and lung troubles of any
thing known to medicine, but on ac
rotm t of the grease wiiich enveloped
its curative principles, it has been im
possible for many people to takt
enough of it into their systems to com
bat a thoroughly settled disease with
out clogging the system and upsetting
"Now. however." continued Mr
Rolfs, "we have Vinol. which contains
;n a highly concentrated form all of
the melicfnal curative elements of cod
liver oil actually taken from fresh
cods' livers, without a drop of oil or
grease to upset the stomach ami re
tard its work, and physicians agree
that it is the greatest cure for all
throat, bronchial and lung troubled
known to medicine."
Miss Anna Ray writes us that after
suffering for five years with bronchitis,
and trying all kinds of medicines with
out relief. Vino! cured her, and we
have hundreds of just such letters.
"We wisii every person suffering from
chronic col Is, coitshs, bronchitis, and
every aged, weak or convalescent per
son who needs a cleaning, strength
creating and blood-making tonic would
try Vinol on our guarantee to return
the purchase money if it fails." H. O.
Rolfs, the Harper House pharmacy.
Wants to Kill Self. An old man re
siding in the western portion of the
city was taken before the Scott county
board of insanity commissioners Fri
day afternoon and, after a short hear
ing, adjudged insane. He was com
mitted1 to Mercy hospital for treatment.
This man has made three attempts to
kill himself but had failed to accom
plish his object. He had attempted to
hang himself, but. in each case, the
rope had not proven strong enough to
do the work he had meant it to do.
While being examined by the board,
the old man stated that he meant to
kill himself and would try again the
very first time that he was given a
good opportunity to do so.
Two Boys Gone. Willie Tarrant.
aged 10 years, who drives a milk wa
gon for his father who conducts a
dairy in the west end of the city, has
betn reported to the police as missing.
The boy, after covering his route,
should have returned home at 2 o'clock
Saturday afternoon. Failing to report
by 0 o'clock, his father became alarm
ed and reported the matter to the po
lice station. The wagon was found at
7 o'clock with the horses hitched to a
post at Third and Perry streets, but
the boy was nowhere to be found.
The lad is a sober and industrious
child, of good habits and not known to
frequent saloons. On this account his
strange disappearance is more of a
mystery than ever. He was supposed
to have had about $15 in his possession
at the tiiHe of his disappearance. A
lad named Fisher, 10 years of age and
residing at S22 West Eighth street. Is
reported to have run away from his
home and not been located by his an
xious parents. The lad was reprimand
ed for -playing truancy and is suppos
ed to have ran away rather than be
sent back to school.
Sold Liquor Illegally. Robert Lay
ton and Archie Hamilton of Columbus
Junction. Iowa, have been arraigned
before Federal Commissioner A. G
Bush on the charge of retail liquor
selling without paying the government
tax. The offense was perpetrated last
August. Both men were committed to
jail in default of bonds.
Grants Two Divorces. Judge Bol
linger was kept busy Saturday listen
ing to divorce suits and other minor
matters which generally come up be
fore the regular jury work of the term
of court begins. Among the cases
heard were two divorce suits of more
than passing interest. One of these
was that of May Bourn, who asked to
be separated from Philip Bourn. The
girl is but IS years of age and pretty.
She testified tq being married to the
man from whom she now sought sepa
ration in Rock Island. June 8. 1904,
and living with him until the latter
part of February of this year, a total
of little more than eight months. Dur
ing that time, so she said, her husband
had abused her time and time again
and, finally ( one night in February, he
threatened to kill her. drawing a razor
and advancing uion her with it in his
hand. The judge did not wait to hear
al; the witnesses which were to be in-
tioduced but issued a decree R3 pray
ed upon listening to but one other wit
ness beside the plaintiff. Delia Nie-
meyer was also granted a divorce from
August Niemeyer on the grounds of
habitual drunkenness and cruel and in

Terrific Race With Death.
"Death was fast approaching," writes
Ralph F. Fernandez, of Tampa. Fla.,
describing his fearful race with death,
"as a result of liver trouble and heart
disease, which had robbed me of sleep
and of all interest in life. I had tried
many different doctors and several
medicines, but got no benefit, until I
began to use Electric Hitters. So won
derful was 'the effect, that in three
days I felt like a new man, and today
I am cured of all niy troubles." Guar
