Brown is awfully thin I wonder
what's the matter with hitn."
The man with adequate flesh has
the advantage. People like to deal
like to associate with healthy
looking, robust men.
But the most serious handicap
for the thin man is when illness
comes -he has no surplus fiesh on
which to draw.

At the Theater.
An instance of the many ways in
which a telephone can be successfully
used was demonstrated the other day
when a piano in Erie was tuned from
a key tone of a like instrument in
Sterling, the pitch of the note being
transmitted by phone.
A piano tuner in the employ of a
Sterling music store was sent to Erie
to tune a piano in the church at that
place. When he arrived there he learn
ed that the officers of the church de
sired a second instrument, and as they
were to be used together at revival
meetings, it was necessary that they
be alike in tone. He telephoned to
the manager of the Sterling store and
asked that a piano be sent to Erie im
mediately in order that he could tone
theip together during his stay there.
It was impossible to get the instru
ment to Erie that day, but the difficul
ty as to the tuning was overcome. The
manager drew the piano which he in
tended to send to Erie to the telephone
and sounded the keynote, while the
tuner in Erie caught the tone on his
tuning fork and proceeded to tune the
Erie piano in pitch with the one in
The success of the trial was later
proven, when it was found that the
two instruments harmonized perfectly.

many sad features to the San Fran

well. Every day some laughable inci
dent is related as having taken place
during the trembling of the earth on
the Pacific coast. One of the funniest
incidents and one actually enacted is
being told by Al G. Field, the minstrel.
"It was during the seismic disturb
ances in Frisco," runs the story. "Tha
ground was trembling viciously, and
an old darkey, panic-stricken, ran from
his cabin on the outskirts of the city.
He dropped on his knees in the road
and cried out, 'Oh, Lordy, Lordy, sen'
yo Son down yere. Sumpin' terrible
am gwine to happen in a minute.' At
that instant the earth trembled again
and two small brick buildings on the
opposite side of the street fell with a
crash. The old darkey dropped to the
ground again and cried out louder than
before, "Oh, Lordy, Lordy, doan yo'
sen yo' Son down yere. Yo' cum down

Steindel Trio. The Steindel .trio at
the Grand opera house, Davenport, last
evening gave the second in the series
of concerts in the Lyceum League Ar
tists' course, under the direction of
Albert Petersen and Henry Sonntag
Jr. The trio is composed of Mrs. Bru
no Steindel, pianist; Bruno Steindel,
cellist; and Fritz Itte, violinist, and
they form an organization whose en
semble work is almost perfect. Mr.
Steindel. who is first cellist with Tho
rnas' orchestra, ranks among the very
highest in his line and he gives a per
formance that is unrivaled, his tone
being excellent and his technique is
perfect. Mr. Itte. also of Thomas' or
chestra, has brilliant technique and a
fine tone and the accompaniment of
Mrs. Steindel is faultless, playing with
peculiar sympathy of touch and feel
ing. The next number on the course
will be a piano recital by Leopold
Winkler, who returns for a second en
gagement this season after a tour
through the west, and will be at the
