Is Sensational Comedy Drama. One
of the greatest successes of recent
years in sensational comedy drama is
"Slaves of the Orient;" or "The Land
of Nowhere," which will be presented
tomorrow matinee and night, at i lie
Illinois theater, with the clever young
actress, Gertrude Ewing in the lead
ing role of "Zeuleika." queen of the
harem, supported by an excellent act
ing company. The play is correctly
end elaborately staged with all special
scenery and beautiful costumes.
Shows up Ade's Philosophy. Mi-s
Pearl AblKitt, the sua-burned athletic
girl in "The College Widow" has
knocked into a cocked hat George
Ade's philosophy embodied in his com
edy masterpiece. It will be recalled
that this same athletic girl in the play
bemoans her ill luck in trying to en
snare susceptible students and is mane
to exclaim poutingly: "It is the fluffy
girl with the parasol that wins." But
what did Miss Abbott do last week but
go in and win a beauty contest anion;'
the "College Widow" girls, started by
the Daily News, of St. Paul.
Recalls Precious Memories. "Alt
Heidelberg" is the name of a quaint
little town on the river Neckar in Ger
many and yet to many Germans thi:
name recalls to their memory the hap
piest days of their life: the days cf
yore, their student days, when then
hearts were full of joy and their souls
full of hope; when everything looked
so beautiful and the whole world seem
ed so young to them. To the Amer
ican who has traveled abroad the men
tion of Heidelberg will bring back to
mind the picturesque ruins of the o! 1
castle with its most wonderful sur
roundings and the merry easy-go-lucky
way of the German student. All the.-e
pictures will be vividly placed before
vour eyes in the most successful com
ody. "Alt Heidelberg." which is going
to be produced by the Milwaukee G r
man Theater company, a', the Illino.?
theater Saturday, May 4.
Last Half Week's Bill Good. Tha
last half of the week's bill at the Elito
is full of feature acts. Mr. and Mrs.
I'owers are presenting a very laugh
able comedv skit. The pair sings til 3
ouera "II Trovotore." Mrs. Powers is
possessed of a remarkable voice. Cal
adera, with his little lady assistant. I
presenting a number of feats in balanc
ing and slight-of-hand work. Calader.i
Is exceedingly clever in both, especial
ly so in the balancing acts. Connors
and Albert, comedians and clog danc
ers are making a decided hit in their
work. Connors plays the part of a
black face, and does a scare crow
dance. Herbert and Vance, musicians
are one of the best musical teams ever
seen here in vaudeville. The sOng and
pictures are very good.
Attraction of Merit. Otis Skinner's
classical production "The Duel", given
at the Illinois last evening, ,vas one of
ihe strongest dramatic attractions that
has been here this season, and it wjs
greeted by a brilliant audience. Op
portunity is given for strong emotionil
work on the part of the actors and the
company was equal to every emerge.v-
oy. The scenic accessories are excep
tionally fine. One of the members ol
the cast is Charles Walcot. a veterin
of 50 years on the stage, who though
suffering from asthma last evening,
was able to ppear in the part of Mon
Keigneur Bolene. Mr. Walcot, it had
been reported, was about to retire per
manently from the stage. This, how
ever, was denied by Joe Buckley, tha
manager, who asserted the aged actor
is under contract with Frohman to
take part in the latter's new produc
tion to have its first performance si
New York in September. It is. how
ever, reliably reported that a substi
tute has been engaged to take Mr. Wal
oot's part after the company loaves
Kansas City for the mountain country
one week hence.
It a point io oeiieve notning I cannot
understand," Dr. Tarr said, "Then,
young man, your creed will be the
shortest of any man's I know."
CLOSES CRYSTAL FOR
Last Performance Tomorrow Evening
Ready Again After Four
WATER AS A BEVERAGE.
The Crystal theater, now in the
hands of J. C. Sodini of Davenpot,
owner of a number of high class vaude
ville theaters, including one in Daven
port and one in Moline, closes tomor
row evening to be remodeled. The
work will be started the first part or
next week. Mr. Sodini leased the
building from-the Fries estate a fev
weeks ago for 'a term of 10 years. The
building will be remodeled throughout,
and will be extened to the alley at the
north, and a stage 40x25 feet built.
The second floor of the building will
be included and a balcony built in the
rear of the theater. It will probably
be about four months before the wo'k
is finished. Mrs. Casey, who for the
last five months has been singing illus
trated songs at the theater has been
transferred by Mr. Sodini to the Indira
tral at Moline, but when the theater
opens here again she will be brought
back here. Mrs. Casey made a gre-xt
success in hor work.

Grip Quickly Knocked Out.
"Some weeks ago during the severe
winter weather both my wife and my
self contracted severe colds which
speedily developed into the worst kind
of la grippe with all its miserable
symptoms," says J. S. Egleston of Ma
ple Landing, Iowa. "Knees and joints
aching, muscles sore, head stopped up,
eyes and nose running, with alternate
spells of chills and fever. We began
using Chamberlain's Cough Remedy,
aiding the same with a double dose
of Chamberlain's Stomach and Liver
tablets, and by its liberal use soon
completely knocked out the grip. Sold
by all leading druggists.
Flattest After an Apple and Coolest
After a Peppermint Drop.
"Water is the finest drink in the
world." said the epirure in little
things, "but not every one knows how
to get the most enjoyment out of
"For instance, -water should never be
drunk immediately after au apple lias
been eaten, for us a beverage it then
has a taste inure fiat and insipid than
as if it had been takeu from a cold
"Ou the other hand, there is nothing
to my mind that makes water taste
more cool and refreshing (not counting
actual thirst) than to eat a peppermint
drop before taking a drink of it.
"And, while peppermint stands at the
head, a drink of water is particularly
and noticeably good after any wafer
or lozenge. Popcorn, ou the other
hand, takes all the animation out of a
subsequent swallow of water.
"Cor do bread and water go well to
gether. The water takes the sweetness
out of the bread, and the bread takes
the liveliness out of the water and
makes it flat beyond degree.
'The tyrant who first hit npon bread
and water as a prison fare of punish
ment knew his business.
"The enjoyment of a drink of water
varies, too, with what you drink it
from. You would not offer to a sick
person a drink of water in a cup. but
rather in a glass, the thinner the bet
ter. The fact that the water itself in
all its limpid clearness is present to
the sense of sight stimulates an expe
tation that is gratified along with the
sense S taste.
"I l.ve frequently observed men
nlKUit to drink some other beverage
than water, and it appears to bo ;i
very common habit with them to re
gard the liquid steadily for some sec
onds before swallowing it, often hold
lug it ou a level with their eves in
order to see it as clearly as possible.
"Surely this lesson should not lie lost
upon the man who knows that there is
no drink like water. While you an:
drinking it enjoy it.
"For my own part. I like water from
a big tin dipper even better than from
a thin tumbler, but liest of all drink
ing dishes for me is a newly mad
birch bark dipper, all the better If I
have made it myself.
"Dip a full dipper from the ceuter
of the bubbling spring, take a look to
see how limpid It Is against the clean
yellow freshness of the dripping dip
per, put your lips to the water Itself
and then take one of the sweetest gifts
the gods provide." Brooklyn Citizen.

Dear Sir: The experience of other

to be worth something to you.
W. E. Boswell of Carthage, 111., paint
ed his house two years ago with Devoe
lead-and-zine paint; used a bright red
for body and trimmed with white.
The painter said the red would fade;
and that the white wouldn't cover, one
coat over the dark ground.
The rod hasn't faded yet; and the
white did cover, one coat perfectly.
Those painters had something to learn,
too. Yours truly,
