penetrative sympathetic understanding
of Sol Smith Russell, lie has come
to the front by Iaps and bounds the
past year. This season he is under
the management of Liebler & Co.,
which such associate stars as Eleanor
Robson, Viola Allen, Mrs. Patrick
Campbell and Wiltinni Faversham. A
Liebler star or a Liebler attraction has

hall mark of theatrical excellence.
The firm has given Mr. Whiteside's
play a superb stage mounting and a
cast of exceptional ability. The play
ers include Herbert Serrs, T-eslio Ken
yon, Hubert Wilkie. Iniis Grisel, Mar

At the Family. The patrons of the
Family theater are being given a real
treat'-this week in the appearance of
Lindsay's dog and monkey circus.
This act has created a large amount
of interest on the western vaudeville
circuits and it is 'heralded as one of
the highest classed animal acts in the
business.. The act was presented to
two good houses last evening and it
was received with great favor. The
Thanksgiving matinee Thursday will
probably be devoted to the amusement
of the school children, this being a
high-class enteitaiun-ent for the chil
dren. Tom Powell, the old Al-G.
Fields minstrel star, was received
cordially at both appearances last
evening and will be one of the hits of
the bill. He has a carload of real ripe
jokes at his command and his parody
singing is a treat. This is not the first
appearance of Tom before Rock Island
theatergoers, ho having appeared a
year ago with the Fields' minstrels.
The other star acts of the bill are
Gracie and Reynolds, an Irish sketch lightweight class and that backing for

girls lead the bill at the Elite this
week, presenting a very pretty and en
tertaining act. The gorgeous and
unique costumes used and the scenery
make it an excellent performance for
any vaudeville bill and the receptio..
given them last night, enthusiastic s
it was, the act richly deserved. Las
sard brothers, acrobat equilibrists and
pantomimists, including the French
burglar, have something new in vaude
ville. Athletics is mixed with comedy
and the interest never lapses. Sam
Hood, the man from Kentucky, the
comedian of the bill in biack face, has
some good jokes and a costume that
about surpasses anything seen at the
Elite this season. . The Elitoscope is
showing something interesting in the
aioving picture line.

McFarland to meet Battling Nelson.
Gans said that McFarland seemed
to have done everything that was
asked of him and that he thought he
was a better man to hold the title than
Memsic. He suggested the challenge
Jo Nelson to clinch the matter. The
latter is believed to be on his way io
the Pacific coast from Minneapolis."
The colored boxer said that he had
no idea of meeting Nelson again and
stated he was more determined than
ever to retire permanently from the
