Ml. Carroll '1'rn m Herr.
i The Mt. Carroll team, which meets
the Y. M. C. A. live this evening, ar
rived ,in the city over the Milwaukee
at noon and is prepared to play a hard
contest tonight. The local players are
determined to win to-even up for the
defeat given them by Mt. Carroll
Mt. Carroll a few weeks ago. They
have practiced hard with that, end in
view. The l. M. C. A. management
particularly urges that ladies take in
the games at the association building.
The belief has become general that
only boys and men are invited to the
games as it is a young men's associa
tion, but this Is in error, as no restric
tion is: made.

In jwhich Jine Corcoran plays the lead

Interest Shown in Opera. Unusual
interest is being manifested in the
coming presentation of Puccini's Jap
ancse grand opera, "Madam Butter
fly," by Henry V. Savage's English
grand opera company. Society and
music circles are both looking for
ward to this event as the one rare
opportunity of the year. Even " the
success of the work abroad has been
eclipsed by the sensational triumph of
Mr. Savage's company in this country
Mail orders from outside points are
already pouring in and indications
point to a flattering reception for the
artists when the Japanese curtain rise:
on the first act of Puccini's master
piece in this city. It is rare indeed
that a world-success comes to this
country so soon after its continental
sensation, and still more rare for such
a treat to be taken on tour while New
York is still singing its praises. Man
ager Savage is perhaps the only pro
ducer who would undertake such
hazardous experiment, but In the case
of '"Madam Butterfly" there Is littl
experiment. The country knows what
as scored a success in the east and
Is only waiting to greet "Madam But
terfly" with the ovation she deserves!
"The Gingerbread Man." The pur-
eyor of musical wares has had all
imls of "girls" in the titles of their
plays, all.-ktnds.oi lanus, ail Kinus
of potentates,' kings, queens, prince?,
ot al., and "the man," too, has had his
hare, but it" rested for the late Fred-
ic Rankin and A. Baldwin Sloane,
the prolific producer of melodious har
mony, to unearth "The Gingerbread
Man," a new type of man, the first of
the inanimate objects to be brought to
fe. They, also, on their voyage of
tucovery around the world of musical
ccmedy, discovered "Santa Claus
.and," created Santa as a stage fig-
re, and brought to life a hitherto un
known quantity in Mrs. Santa Claus.
They also touched at the "Land of Bou
on," after which one of the most
beautiful and memorable and inciden-
a!ly wkistleable song hits of the play
as taken its name, so an idea of their
reative ability can be imagined.
Around these few figures, however.
he more fanciful, the. plot of the
right musical fantasy revolves. We
re introduced to the heroes and hero
ines of the nursery rhymes, "The Man
rom Our Town," "Jack Homer,"
Maizie," "Simple Simon," "Margery
Daw," and about them is woven a most
delightful romance, a web of inexcruci-
itibiy Humorous situations, set m a
frame of splendor by lavish scenery
and costumes, the very best and pret
tiest purchasable by Messrs. Nixon &
Zimmerman. Its sponsors, brightened
and punctuated by the catchiest,
brightest and most melodious bunch of
melodies that have been heard in a
single musical production in ages. All
in all. in "The Gingerbread Man" both
Rankin and Stoane have done their
best work, and that is saying a great
deal, and in ihe production Messrs.
Nixon & Zimmerman have once again
illustrated their right at the very top
of the musical comedy producers.
Shows Real College Life. The real
college life as shown at New Haven
has never been presented to such ad
vantage as in Jules Murry's collego
play, "At Yale," now in its second sea
son and which is to be seen at the
Illinois tomorrow, matineg and night.
A group of old Yale boys of the vin
tage of 30 years ago sat throughout
the three acts one evening not long
ago. Enthusiasm ran high all through
the play, but when the Yale boat shot
ahead of the Harvard crew In the
great boat race scene, these old boys
could not contain themselves longer.
Rising in their seais, they swung their
hats and almost out-yelled the winners
on the stage and their assembled
friends. After the performance was

Blake will appear as Angola di Savelli
in a gown of imported pink and white
silk embroidered with red roses and
green foliage. In style it Is graceful,
of a prircess mode, and opens over a
front of heavy pink silk, covered with
rich hand embroidery. From accurate
details, the quaint pattern of silk is
I well suited to the period, and more
over lends a distinctly graceful and
! girlish appearance V the wearer. In
the next act. ,in which the heroine
(starts out to secure the release of her
father, unjustly imprisoned, she wears
a creation of soft, clinging black crepe,
set off by trimmings' of black sequins.
A gown of plain white silk crepe, with
a cape of gray silk of soft hue, lined
with rich yellow brocade and edged
with white fur, garbs the actress in
her scene in the somber council eham

.Max Bendix made his first appearance

soems to lack the personal quality so

A petition has' been forwarded to

City Railway company will bo askedl
to allow workingmen to ride for two

from the Island at any time of day,
this being in accordance with the fran

island. Practically every employe of

will be appealed to, and ' he will doubt

for an opinion before tailing action.

Apparently President Holland is not
nearly so vindictive toward Dubuque
as the Bloom ington sports writers
would .have him appear. Mr. Holland
when interviewed bv an outside news
paper appeared ready to accept Judge
Graves' ruling on the injunction case
as final and asserted he was. in favor
of calling a most ing as soon as possi
ble to dispose of the matters which
are now pend ng before the league.
Dubuque announces the signing of
Chailes Mueller, a first baseman, and
Ralph Ixird, a pitcher.
Outside the pitching staff Clinton

with Manager Buelow. Daly. Crockett

Miss Barrymore is evidently so talented an actress that one playwright
cannot now successfully produce a play that is np to bor requirements. Con
sequently 'two celebrated authors were necessary to evolve her play for this
-season. They were Clyde Fitch and Cosmo Gordon Iennox, the first a well
known American and the second an Englishman. "Her Sister" is the title of
the drama. It is a three act play, with the scenes laid in England, though
the story relates to incidents occurriud in America.
