Fall Too Successful. Jack Curtis,
the comedian of the musical comedy,
"The Show Girl," which appears at
."..... .. .. . .......
THE BLUE JAY AND JENNIE WREN. IN "WOODLAND," AT THE IL
the Illinois Saturday, Nov. 2, matinee
and night, tells a funny story of a
joke that was played on Lew Fields
at the time Mr. Curtis was in his com
pany. Mr. Curtis made a very hard
fall in one of his plays, and Mr. Curtis
decided to play a little joke. Mr.
Fields made his fall all right, but it
was not in the proper place. After the
I curtain went down on that act. Mr.
Curtis went to the comedian and said:
"That was a splendid back-fall you
made tonight, Mr. Fields." The latter
looked at the flatterer with a suspi
cious glare. "Yes," he said; "and I
would like to lay my hands on the

The genuine Dr. A. W. Chase's Nerve
Pills put up in a round flat box with
bliie and yellow label never fail, when
intelligently used,- to cure any and all

down exhausted condition of the nerv
ous system. They give strength,
steadiness, natural sl(?en and creneral
vigor. Just as Mrs. Mary Ballert of
321 Dearborn St., Buffalo. N. Y.. Bays
they did In her daughter's case. She
says: "From a little , child up, my
daughter new 21 years of - age has
been exceedingly nervous, fidgety and
restless even .of late years, work has
been out of the question. Any exertion
played her out her sleep was far from
good antl constantly broken. I was ad
vised to try Dr. A. W. Chase's Nerve
Pills. I got some and used them with
fine results. The improvement was

Xeedless to say Mr. Curtis had impor
tant business in his dressing room
which demanded his Immediate attention.
Pleased the lowans. An Iowa ex
change says of the recent appearance
of 'The District Leader," which is at
the Illinois tomorrow night: "The Dis
trict Trader" w'as greeted by a big
house at the Colonial last night, pretty
nearly a full house, all but several
front rows being occupied. It was the
largest house up to date. The play, a
musical comedy with a plot, was thor
oughly enjoyed from start to finish.
The scenery was pretty, and there was
not a dull moment during the entire
evening. Even when in the second
act the electric lights went out, the
audience took the cue from the pianist.
who repeatedly played "Something Do
ing Around My Heart," one of Charles
K. Harris' popular hits, and pretty
nearly every -man and boy joined in
whistling the popular refrain. Besides
this there were other musical hits,
which may be heard on the steets to
Sawmill and All. The realistic saw
mill scene in "Uncle Josh Spruceby,"
the down east play, conies nearer to
the genuine article than any of the
many stage effects now before the pub
lie. In fact, so real is the 3G-inch buzs
saw that one of the actors of the play
had his light hand cut off at the wrist
during a performance last season in
Illinois. "Uncle Josh Spruceby" lays
claim to one of the most novel scenes
of any piece on the road this season
At the Illinois next Sunday.
"Woodland." One of the most pop
ular offerings of the season, at the Illi
nois Thursday, Nov. 7, will be Henry
W. Savage's superb production of the
Pixley-Luders musical fantasy, "Wood
land," which has attracted so much fa
vorable comment wherever it has been
presented and which Mr. Savage has
revived on a magnificent scale. The
music of this, as it has been termed,
Audubonesque musical frolic," will
be found to be lilting, tuneful and de
cidedly catchy, the pictorial effects
most novel and pleasing, and the cos
turnC embellishments stunningly effec
tive. The costume worn by Miss
Frances Graham In the character of
Lady Peacock is without doubt the
most elaborate of creations, made of
some lustrous, heavy material, shot
with paillettes of irridescent bluish
steel giutes; the skirt and bodice are
ornamented with peacock "eyes" made
of foil concaves in tinsel of the na
ura colors. A. headdress of plumes in
peacock shades completes, an exceed
ingly rich costume. The costume of
Jenny Wren is a dainty creation of
accordion plaited chiffon, with here and
there touches of brown. Worn by
pretty little Liela Smith, the effect is
something for the women to rave over,
The costume of Miss Nightingale, with
which Altss Mary Quive, the prima
donna, attires herself, is in strict color
consonance with the sweetest of song
sters. It. is of somber brown, with
here and there a blending of rich
orange. The Blue Jay, the Canary, the
Blackbirds, Robin Redbreast, the Ra
ven, the Lark, the Sparrow and the
Dove, the Owl and the Hawk and the
common barnyard Rooster, all to be
found in "Woodland," are each appro
priately costumed and add to the at
tractiveness of the novel picture.

the fifth pier, aud only two more sets
emain to be placed. The sidewalk
supports and railings are now placed
over the railroad tracks, ami skipping
the next girder, are placed out as far as
the fourth pier. The support work mi-
erneath has been removed, half way
across the river. The last pier is al
most finished, and witn its completion
the under concrete 'work will be done.
The concrete curbing and walks on
the approach are being laid. The work
is progressing rapidly, an elevator hav-
ng. been const meted for lifiing the
laterial to the bridge floor level, and
other means having been devised for
facilitating this part of the construc
tion. The concucte bed is also about
completed over the railroad tracks, and
preparations are being made for start
ing the paving --work for the remainder
of the bridge.
