The play is a comic opera in three
acts, with the scene m isormandy,

losing of papers proving the noble I

of the play is a peasant girl. Serpo-
lette, a careless and gay young lady
as the play proceeds, impresses upon
the peasants and the people of the
court that she has right to the noble
title. Through the assistance of Henri
marquis de Comeville, and the Bailli
the papers are found showing the
noble birth of Germaine. Germaine
is the daughter of Gaspard, the miser,
and brings acknowledgement of the
fact from her father, who leaves her
his chatteau and fortune. The love of
Germaine is won by thejnarquis de

George F. Knowles admirably took
the difficult part of Gaspard, the miser.

It should be perfectly clear at this

this season. The litigation is compli

very likely that the delay may be con

if it is necessary to take further evi

be a year before the question comes
back to the court.

AUDITORIUM NOW DOOMED?
Reported Magnificent Playhouse Will
Be Done Away With. .
Chicago, Feb. 14. It is probable that
the Auditorium theater, ' which Hein
rlch Conried once observad was the
finest on the Americau continent, will
pass into history after next year. The
plans of the directors of the Chicago
Auditorium association are to tear out
he theater, which never has been a
profitable investment, even when con
ducted as a bargain counter for vaude
ville and musical comedies, and re
model the whole Auditorium either for
hotel or office purposes. Tentative
plans have been prepared, it became
known yesterday, for a remodeled ho
tel, 22 stories high, with the most mag
nificent rotunda of any hotel in the
world, at an expense of $3,000,000.
Other plans provide for the recon-
st ruction of the hotel into an bffic
building with four additional stories.
This is estimated to cost $500,000. and
is the most likely use to which the re
constructed building will be put, it is
GALLANT UNCLE JOE.
Speaker Cannon Tells Pretty Students
Why He Opposes Woman Suffrage.
Speaker Cannon of the bouse of rep
resentatives recently received one of
the most beautiful clusters of Anieri
can Beauties he ever saw; at least that
is what he told them when they were
ushered into his room at the capitol
to be introduced to the "next presi
dent," says a Washington special dis
patch to the New York Times. There
were twenty in the cluster, or, to be
more accurate, In the "bevy." They
were students at the Martha Washing
ton seminary in Washington and came
from almost as many states. Including
Maryland, Arkansas, Texas, Georgia,
Tennessee, New York and Virginia,
and, luckiest of all, one came from Illi
nois. And maybe the little Illinois maiden
didn't blush. Uncle Joe plied her with
questions about her people and her life
in Washington. He said nice things to
the others, too, but before they left he
took a rap at woman suffrage.
"I appreciate the great honor you
have paid me," he said. "However, I
rather doubt whether you young ladies
from Georgia, Texas, Virginia. Arkan
sas and other states in the south really
want to see me elected. No,-1 am op
posed to woman suffrage,' and I'll tell
you why. . Pretty women like you
would always control two votes your

How They Found Out,
When the La"wtons bad liyed in Wil

vited to a succession of little dinners
at the houses of their new neighbors.
Mr. Lawton was on a dyspeptic's diet,
and Mrs. Lawton was. endeavoring to
reduce her weight. "I suppose we shall
have to eat all sorts of things "we don't
wish or else seem rude," said Mrs.
Lawton mournfully as they set out for
the first diuner.
To their growing surprise, the bills
of fare placed bef ore them at each din
ner, although not remarkably varied,
were all composed of such dishes as
they could both enjoy!

THE CUNNING CHINESE.
Scheme to Beat Immigration Law:
Discovered In San Francisco.
Despite the rigid examination given
by the immigration Inspectors to in
coming Chinese it has been known for
some tme that the inspectors were be
ing deceived by Asiatics who alleged
they were born in San Francisco, and
the other day one of the schemes used
to delude the inspectors was discov
ered, says a San Francisco correspond
ent of the Kansas City Star. In order
to prove that the Chluese did live in
San Francisco, as asserted by them,
the Inspectors have been In the habit
of asking the location of well known
buildings, streets and car lines. To
these questions many of the Chinese
were able to give a satisfactory an
swer, and the Inspectors had nothing
to do except to admit them.
II. M. North, United States commis
sioner of Immigration, discovered a
map in an immigrant's possession
showing Chinatown as it was before
the fire, and the fraud was then made
clear. It carried instructions how tc
answer questions regarding the plan
of the city and of Important events of
the past. Commissioner North believes
that copies of these maps have been
sent to China and that after having
studied them the Chinese would come
to the United States, assert that they
were born here and demand the right
to land. - .
Longest Cable Ropeway.
Work is at present in hand on the
construction of what is claimed to be
the lofiegst cable ropeway " in the
world. It is being constructed by s
German firm and is Intended to con

from Samarkand, Russian Turkestan
with the nearest railway station, says
the Philadelphia Record. Hitherto the
coal has been transported by camels,
the journey on account of the very
hilly districts occupying five days. The
new ropeway, which will be fifty-four
miles long, is intended to carry from
eight to ten million poods (a Russian
weight equal to thirty-six pounds)
year, and the trolleys, which will each
hold twenty poods, will travel at
speed of six miles an hour.

SCOURING YOUR SCALP
Will Remove the Loose Dandruff Scales,
But It Won't Cure Dandruff.
If your hair is briitle and thinning,
you have dandruff. .The mere scour
ing of the scalp ht the loose scales
won't cure dandruff, because dandruff
is nothing but scales of scalp being
thrown up by a pestiferous little germ
in burrowing its way to the root of.
the hair,, where it saps the vitality,
causing falling hair, and, in time bald
ness. Now you can't stop dandruff
nor falling hair, nor prevent baldness
unless you destroy that germ; and the
only preparation that can do it is thi
new scientific discovery, Xewbro's Her
picide. In fact, no other hair prepara
