THE ARGUS, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 14. 1909.
4 1 V
SHOW GALLED OFF
THE REASON WHY
But $17 in Box Office Receipts,
Manager of "Gay New York"
; '.. - Refuses to Play.
ITS TITLE IS A MISNOMER
.' Sngestiveness Confounds It Willi
"f", Outloiiabio Attraction. Though
: ' ' It Is of .Wetter Class.
J ''Gay New York" was not performed
:. last nightat the Illinois theater be
: ' canse' there was not enough, money in
the bouse to warrant turning on the
' V lights, much less paying for an orches
:'trand othes incidentals. Manager
Taylor would have allowed the
Ehow.toproceed rather than disappoint
those of his patrons who did come out,
"Ml'U'E Harry Leone, owner of the com
jin.y, .said that he would not ask his
3vv3fcplei to ;dressor such a "frost," as
'SiVxjressed it.. -When the time for
i-lhei falsing of the curtain arrived there
a.sjust $17 in box office receipts,
i i There must be a reason for such a
- ,iQ'n1l-at't'en dance when an attraction
; .rfo'hefcn as .well billed as had been
t ''""j'ay.New York." In the first instance,
V'-T tftlUe Is a misnomer. People who
'. ,. patronize the theater in this age are
i4- ty&ter j?tted than the men who supply
- 4irbltbentertainmeut give them credit
iorb0lhg. "Gay New ork' suggests
pbiething fast, although it should be 1
BtateSL in justice to the owner of the
company booked for this . city last
night, that he has a topnotch produc
tion in every respect, and does not
overstep the ' proprieties. His show
consists of two cleves burlettas, given
fcy capable people, and an olio of high
class specialties a modern burlesque
performance, in other words.
How Another it tlir Money.
- Yet the Tact remains that "Gay New
York" is taken by the reader to mean ,!l !'"" w kH.-
just what it savs. It is not so different ; -- "T,, r i.-nder.-in
title from "The Gay Morning Gloi- 2:J.iverK,n lie AnKeie m-The
les." an attraction that drew an ex- " si!"'-"
elusive male audience that 'filled the
Illinois a week ago. Yet the shows
are not to be compared. The manage
ment of "The Gay Morning Glories"
knew how to get the money. He adver
tised that women would not be admit
ted to the performance. This aroused
the curiosity of the men, and they
readily fell for the ruse, for they must
";bave .been disappointed, since there
was nothing improper outside of thtj
vulgarity of the men players. Women
In the smaller cities, through former
experiences in being deceived by titles
of ihovs, hesitate to attend when there
is doubt suggested by a name, as in
'Gay New York." The attraction it
. last night was announced as a bright
musical comedy. There was no known
player's name associated with ii. It
as taken at its face value that's the

"I suffered so with Nervous
Prostration that I thought there
was no use trying to get well. A
friend recommended Dr. Miles'
Nervine, and although skeptical
at first, I soon found myself re
covering, and am to-day well.'
MRS. D. I. TONES,
5800 Broadway, Cleveland, O.
Much sickness is of nervous
origin. It's the nerves that
make the heart force the blood
through the veins, the lungs
take in oxygen, the stomach di
gest food, the liver secrete bile
and the kidneys filter the blocfd.
If any of these organs are weak,
it is the fault of the nerves
through which- they get their
strength. Dr. Miles' Nervine is
a specific for the .nerves. It
soothes the irritation and assists
in the generation of nerve force.
Therefore you can- hardly miss
it if you take Dr. Miles' Nervine
when sick. Get a bottle from
your druggist. Take it all ac
cording to directions, and if it
does not benefit he will return
youc money. j
