"My Boy, Jack" In Edwin Milto'i
Roylo's play, "My I5oy, Jack." v.hicn
will be seen at the Illinois theater to
morrow, matinee and night, Eugene
Moore, the star, depicts a character
that should become one of the most
popular impersonations that he has ap
peared in during his remarkable ca
reer. "Jack Padden" is a fine inde
pendent, keen prepossessing sort of
young American that everybody like.
He turns laughter into tears, and tears
into laughter. Whenever Jack Is on the
stage, there is something doing. His
self sacrificing loyalty to his fi-ioni.
his exhilarating tilts with his crusty
old father, keep the audience busy
wondering what is going to happen
next, but take him for all in all, Jac'-i
Padden is a gentleman.
"The Man of the Hour" What has
proved to be the supreme dramat'C
success of the season in New York
taking the most impossible feats. H
Uees them accept as a matter of fact
the suggestions that they are circus
performers, that they are cocks fight
ing a main, that they are horsmen rac
ing on a track, that they are bicyclists,
in short every conceivable vagary that
the human brain can entertain is adoii
ted by these hypnotic subjects and car
ried out with a gravity that makes up
roarious fun. While there Is a scleu-
tifis nndertone to it. the idea is of it
self funny and mirthful, without thew
being in the slightest degree anything
deleterious. For the effects on the sub
jects is healthful rather than other
wise. Next week the whole phenom
ena will be exhibited here in this cU.y
and we commend it to our readers as
a pure and highly moral entertainment.

NO EXPERIMENTING NO MISTAKES.
When you go to Dr. Young for treatment you go with that feeling thai
you are not going to be experimented on. His long experience as a special
ist and years of training in the leading post-graduate colleges and hos'pita'.s
of Philadelphia, New York, Indnn, Paris, Vienna and Berlin has not only
taught him to locate every disease without a single mistake, but to know
from the very beginning, the treatment to give that will cure, which does
away with all possibility of experimenting. He invites all to call, especially
those who have failed to get well elsewhere.

THEATRE TALK NO. 5.
ONE OF TEE IMPORTANT FIRST CLASS FR0DDCTI0NS OF
THE SEASON, "MY BOY, JACK," WILL BE SEEN HERE IN A
FEW DAYS- The play was
written by Edwin Milton Royle,
author of "The Squaw Man,"
the most famous Broadway
success of recent seasons, "Mol-
! lie Moonshine," which Marie
Cahill found one of her most popular productions, 'Capt. Impu
dence" and other noted plays. The company will have for its
head and star EUGENE MOORE, who will be remembered for Lis
brilliant performance cf "Monte Cristo" aDd his high position
among leading men and the cleverest light comedians. MR.
MOORE SHINES BRIGHTLY IN THE PART OF JACK, and nothing
could be better suited to the taste of American theatregoers than
the character of this independent, worthy young son of a typical
American business man. THE OPPORTUNITIES IN THE PART
TO SHOW THE ACTOR'S ART in delineating a vivacious personal-

ity with a keen play of wit and humor, through which is seen true
strength and nobility of character, are seldom excelled In any play.
MR. MOORE IS ONE OF THE FEW ACTORS IN THE COUNTRY
WHOSE WIDE AND COMPLETE EXPERIENCE and high ideals
equip them to convey the full excellence of such a role. The other
parts in the play are all of unusual interest, including the musician
Karje, Margeret the prima donna, her dissipated father,' and the
landlady of the poet and composer in their poverty. The whole
play is full of the best kind of entertainment the stage offers, and
presented thoroughly well. There are four acts which cany the
story irom the poor lodgings oi
the poet and musician through
the handsome apartments of the
prima donna and the mansion of
her rich admirer to the green
room of the opera house. You
wont see any thing better is town this season than this production.
STAR, PLAY AND COMPANY IS ALL THAT COULD BE DESIRED.
Don't wait until the last minute to buy your tickets and then growl
if you doat get good seats. WE'RE EXPECTING YOU and will
give you the greatest value you have ever had for ycui money.
NO CHEATING WITH THIS COMPANY. Usual prices will prevail.
