Morgan Stock company, now the larg
est and best repertoire company in
the west, will be at the Illinois theater
next Sunday afternoon and evening.
They will present a play not seen here
before. The company is still headed
by J. Doug Morgan, and most of the
old favorites are still with the com
pany. Since playing the Airdome this
summer the company has been greatly
enlarged and now comprises 14 people,
also four big vaudeville acts. At the
Illinois Sunday, matinee and night.
"Home, Sweet Home." "Home,
Sweet Home," a comedy drama in
four acts, has been secured for one j
night at the Illinois theater, Wednes
day, Sept. 30. Ix)cal theater-goers will
have an opportunity of witnessing a
drama that is entirely different from j
the common variety, and that during
an evening spent enjoying the play,
lessons of the clean, wholesome and
practical variety are being instilled
into the minds of the audience. The
presenting company is headed byMrs.
L. A. Strong, well known throughout
the east as a woman of ability and ver
satile accomplishments. Another well
known member of the company is Miss
Mary Labadie, who portrays the lead:
ing feminine character in a pleasing
manner. The Home, Sweet Home
quartet is a feature with the produc
tion. Special scenery, elaborate elec
trical effects, and appropriate costumes
add to the effectiveness of the production.
Produced in 36 Hours. After pur
chasing direct from the author, Franz
Molnar, the sole rights for America
to "The Devil," Henry W. Savage
created the greatest sensation in the
history of New York theatricals when,
with less than 3C hours' preparation,
he produced at the Garden theater,
New York, the authorized version of
this now international success. "The
Devil" is a unique and extremely time
ly comedy. The story departs from
the common-place and theatrical, and
deals with a personage that is equiva
lent to the evil one of tradition which
all good people have learned to fear
and repel. This devil, who is symbolic
and chooses to call himself "Dr. Mil
ler," brings forth his mechanicians to
tear, a wife from her husband and an
artist from-his ambition, and, in the

act is meeting with great approval,
and is a great drawing card for the
children. The manikins are worked on
a miniature stage erected on the, large
stage of the . theater, and the little
dummies are made to give a regular
miniature vaudeville show, a miniature
curtain falling at the close of each act.
Manager Quinn has made arrange
ments for a special performance of the
manikins at the children's matinee
Saturday afternoon. The opening act
of the present bill is Kinzo, a novelty
juggler of .the Japanese type. Rose
and Severns are presenting a sketch
entitled "An Automobile Disaster" that
is full of comedy, Petrie and Budd,
singing, talking and dancing comedi
ans, are presenting a unique act. Mr.
Budd is an acrobat of ability, and the
falls which he undertakes are enough
to give his admirers the chills. Miss
May Marshall is singing one of the
latest popular. .songs this week. The
camerograph is showing three different
sets of pictures this week.

theater the last half of this week. The
At the Elite. The singing of Miss
Katherine Martin is easily the feature
of the show at the Elite theater. Miss
Martin sang at the Family theater in
Davenport two years ago, and made a
large number of friends. Since then
she has been in vaudeville and in
grand opera. Besides singing for the
illustrated songs, she gives a special
number each performance, which is at
tracting a large number of Davenport
people who remember her work in
that city. Manager Friedenwald has
secured her services for the entire
year, and is to be congratulated. The
vaudeville numbers on the program in
clude Lew A. Ward in a tramp act of
no little merit. He impersonates a
drunken hobo to perfection. Cotter
and Ellis put on an act in which Ellis
takes the part of a Jew, and it is very
laughable. The Three Leisenrings put
on a comedy tumbling act which is
very clever. The moving picture ma
chine shows a film called the "Ship

She asked him to come to the piano

This is the great problem in washing curtains to get them
clean without rubbing. It is solved by The Peosta Way.
Peosta Soap releases the dirt when curtains or clothes are
soaked about an hour in Peosta suds. No hard rubbing is
necessary and no boiling. ,
Fill a tub half full of lnke-warm water and add to it a
half bar of Peosta Soap which has been dissolved in 2
quarts of warm water. Pure Peosta will do the work
effectively and save the life of your laces and muslins.
Shake curtains well and allow to soak one or two hours
in the suds. Then wash in second tub of warm Peosta
Suds. Wash in third water if necessary, rinse in clear
water until free from soap.
