All Fun and Football. A play which
lias scored a tremendous success in
the Illinois theater tomorrow evening.
Strongheart" la said to be "full of
fun and football," the f scenes being
lad- at Columbia. . .university, Now
York. Thje second ; act of the play
shows 'the training quarters .of tke
football eleven vbetween the halves bf
a.hlg game, which is probably one of
the most novel settings ever seen, on
the stage, and as for its being real
istic in speaking of Mr, Stuart's de
scription of -his , football game, Coach
Yost of Michigan, said: "It (is so real
that w,hen the curtain went down, my
men felt like having a, shower bath."
One sees in the distance the football
grounds, hears the yells, the "counts
pf the touchdowns, and the interming
ling songs of both colleges.
' Expert With ' the Sword. Before
the final fall of the curtain in "The
Jesters," Maude Adams, as' , "Chicot,'
fights a very 'pretentious duel with
"Vulcano," the bully of the play. .The
duel, which lasts about seven minutes,
that ha is to fake care, of himself if he
does not-wish tQ he actually hurt. It
was as L.'AIglon" that Maude Adams
first handled a sword in a boy's garb,
but. that Httte boy; by a cr.uel turn of
fate, neyer had; an opportunity to, use
hib' sword. ''Peter Pan,"i,too. rougnt
valiantly with a sword, a kind ofxut

a ' geutleinan of France; that "Chicot"
wields in" the fourth act of "The Jest

' Mrs! Leslie-Carter in "Du Barry."--
The - visi t ot! M rs. Leslie-Carter, the
greatest emotional actress that the
modern, stage has known, to the Bur
tlshest Friday, evening should prove
the'draraatic treat of this season. This
is putting the matter lightly, for the
reason that the . appearance of this
great "artist, whether in London, New
York, or any of the great capitals of
the world, becomes an event of th
first magnitude; Mrs." Carter will be
seen here as "Du Barry,v.a role which
gives her, the widest scope for" the ex
pression of her dramatic genius. Her
appearance in this great play, follow
tipnal expression that had not hereto
fore-been revealed. No other actress,
with the .exception of Madame Bern
hardt, nas come w'ithin hailing dis
tance of Mrs. Carter in the extraor
dinary variety of her powers.'. In "Du
Barry? she is seen at her best her
very -best which more than " mere
words of encomium can express. .

CAUSED DY HUMORS IN THE BLOOD
' .' : . - . . : -
The sKin is provided with countless pores and glands, through
whicli an evaporation is going on continually, day and night. This is
nature's method of regulating the temperature of our bodies, and pre
serving the natural 'appearance of the skin. These pores and glands
are connected with tiny veins and arteries through which they'receWe,
from the blood, the necessary nourishment and .strength to preserve
their healthy condition, and enable them to perform this duty.
So.long as the blood is pure and rich the skin will be free from
I eruption or disease, but when the circulation becomes infected with
acids and humcrs its nourishing and healthful properties are lost, and
its acrid, humor-laden condition causes irritation and inflammation ol
the delicate tissues and fibres of the pores and glands, and the effect is
shown in llczthfia, Acne, Tetter, Salt Rheum, orsdmeotherdistressing,
disfiguring skin disease. . : -
. These humcrs "get into the
blood through a deranged or inactive
condition of the system. ' Those :
members whose duty.it is to collect
and expel the refuse matter of the .
body fail to properly do ther work,
and this surplus or waste matter is
left in the system to sour and fer
ment and be absorbed into the
blood. There are ateo , certain
other, humors which get into the
blood from without. The juice or '
milk from poisonous plants, such
as poison oak, poison ivy, nettle -rash,
etc., enters through the open
pores of the skin and takes root in
the blood. This causes a breaking
out which remains for a time and
then disappears, but returns at
certain seasons of each year;
The cause of all skin troubles can be traced to some kind of humor
in the blood. Smooth, healthy skins are only possible where the circu
lation is. pure; and therefore the cure of any s"kin affection can only
come through a thorough cleansing of this vital fluid. Salves, washes,
lotions, etc., are valuable only for their ability to keep' the skin clean,'
allay the itching, and tend to reduce inflammation; they cannot correct
the trouble because they do not reach the blood. . -
S. S. S. cures skin diseases of every character and kind, because it
purifies the blood. It goes down into the circulation and removes the
humors that are causing the trouble, builds u the weak, acrid blood,
and completely cures
Eczema, Acne, Tetter,
Salt Rheurti, Poison
Oak, Poison Ivy, and
all eruptions and dis
eases of the skin.
When S. S. S. has"
driven the humor from
the blood, -and cooled
and cleansed the acid
every symptom passes away,, the skin is again nourished with rich,
healthful blood, and comfort is given to disease-tortured skins. ,

So far Bryan,' with 208, and Cray, with

out of sixty-four delegates were carried
for Bryan. As not all ntwspaper read-

stated .here that a delegation to a na

there are thirty In Pennsylvania. The

Publishers and Politics.
The committee of newspaper pub
lishers recently.. In Washington found
themselves treuted with scant courtesv
mltteo, headed by Mr. Mann of Illi
nois. But there seems to lx a general
feeling that It is more Indicative of the
fact that there was some quiet Influ
ence at work to put the committee in
a position of antagonism to the mem
bers of the Newspaper Publishers' as
sociation who addressed it.
' Of course the comihittee, being Re
publican, did not wish the question of
the tarllf reojiened through the demand
of the newspaper publishers for free
paper and free pulp. That Is a matter
of notoriety. - .
But here Is another suggestion which
has been made" in Washington and
which' Is not without its plausibility
The - pajiers that are suffering from
Uiis wood pulp tariff aVe the one cent
papers of large circulation, usually
Democratic. The suggestion Is made
(hat such paters as John It. McLean's
Cincinnati Enquirer, 5 cents a copy,
and his Washington Post nt 3 cents a
copy, the New York Herald at 3 cents
a copy, the New York Sun nt 2 ceuts.

their demand for the repeal of the whose editor -is very close to Congress

than anybody, except the purchasers of
