Day or Night
"I would lay awake for hours
without any apparent cause, or
dream terrible dreams which
; would bring on extreme spells
' of nervousness. After taking
Dr. Miles' Nervine and Tonic
for awhile I could sleep well,
and the nervous spells have left
! me." MISS ALMA HUG,
i R. R, No. 4, Canal Dover, Ohio.
Without sleep the nervous
system soon becomes a wreck,
and the healthful activity of all
the organs obstructed. Restful,
body-building sleep accompanies
the use of Dr. Miles' Nervine
because it soothes the irritable
nerves, and restores nervous
energy. When taken a few days
according to directions, the most
restless sufferer will find sleep
natural and healthful. Get a
bottle from your druggist. Take
it all according to directions, and
if it does not benefit he will re
turn your money.

Bock Island Club Is Laying
Plans for a Blackface
TO END THE SOCIAL SEASON
More Talent Secured for Thanksgiv
ing Affair for the Member
ship. There is likelihood of a revival of
the annual minstrel feature by the
Rock Island Club membership. ?t
will be recalled that the club, a few
years ago, put on two entertainments
that brought that organization fame
as a originator of amateur blackface
productions. There was the street pa
rade, headed by a drum major and
band, and in which the entire mem
bership attired in tiles and dusters,
and affecting canes, the graybeards
and the youngsters, all Joining In.
And there was real merit to the show
itself. The club in those days had
talent. It still has.
At an Informal meeting of the club
entertainment committee Saturday
evening the matter was broached, and
it is probable that It will result in the
planning of a show to be presented in
March, or later, possibly, the public
event to mark the close of the winter
social season at the club.
Thanksgiving- Eve Affair.
The club entertainment committer
Saturday evening received good news
In the form of a telegram from George
Buhr of Cincinnati stating that he
could be depended upon to be present
at the entertainment for the member
ship at the clubhouse Wednesday even
ing. Mr. Buhr is one of the proprie
tors of a Cincinnati factory, and has
been making Rock Island for years.
As an entertainer he has few equals
outside of the profession. He wires
that he will be here "with his bells
on" for Wednesday evening. Others
who will contribute to the evening's
pleasures are William Collins, a pro
fessional singer, monologist and story
teller of Chicago; Sandy Baxter, the
Rock Island Arsenal Golf club profes
sional instructor, on whom Harry
Lauder has nothing when it comes to
the use of the Scotch dialect In song
and story, and Will Trimble, the well
known local baritone singer. It is the
strongest array of talent ever securad
for the amusement of the club mem
bership. The evening's program wi'l
be .commenced with a dinner to be
served promptly at 6:30 o'clock. The
announcement cards refer to the af
fair as a get-together elbow-rubbing
affair. Each member will be privileged
to invite a non-member.
Attendance "Will Be nig.
The entertainment committee urges
those expecting to be present to have
their acceptance cards in the hands
of the club manager not later than
Wednesday noon, for the prospects
are that It will be the biggest enter
tainment, in point of attendance, that
has ever been held at the clubhouse.
Bleuer's orchestra has been secured
to furnish the instrumental music for

Is Play Worth While. After wit
nessing a performance of "A Gentle
man From Mississippi" the patron of
the theater can readily understand the
reason for the vogue of that play in
tne east, it having had a continuous
run of over a year In New York and
six months in Chicago. Brady and
Grlsmer, who gave us "Way Down
East" and other things worth while
in dramatics, are the sponsors of this
production new to the west They,
too, seem to recognize that the peopla
beyond the Adirondacks know the dif
ference between a first and second
class company; that the money out
this way is Just as good as it Is In the
east, and that the axiom coined by the
lamented Bamum don't go in this day
and generation. Brady and Grlsmer
are giving us the original company and
production, and they are not losing by
the concession,- if such it might be
termed. People of the trl-cities yes
terday had their first view of the play.
It was presented afternoon and even
ine at the Grand, in Davenport, and
Manager Hughes of that house ought
to feel proud of the response that his
announcements brought to the box of
fice. Standing room was at a premium.
in the afternoon, and In the evening.
despite the had weather, the theater
was filled. It would be superfluity o
review the performance. Suffice it to
say that it was all, and more, than
was promised. Burr Mcintosh and
win nemine headed the caBt. That
is enough for any one who Is up on
things theatrical. At the close of the
third act there were six curtain
calls, and finally Messrs. Mcintosh and
Deming were forced to give speeches.
There are no murders, or suicides, ir
wrecked homes, or fires, or railroad
wrecks, or closing of motgages. In the
play. It tells a simple, wholesome
story. In which a new senator from
Mississippi, big, pure In thought and
mind, amazed at the corruption he dis
covers in legislative life, turna to mak
ing other men honest, and succeeds.
Of course there are a few wedding3.
But It's mostly sunshine and goodness.
It Is good to see and hear. "A Gentle
man From Mississippi," same company
and production, will appear at the Bar
rymore, in Mollne, tomorrow evening.
You will not make a mistake by going
to see it.
"Thief" Comes This evenings
Charles Frohman brings his company
in a presentation of the much-talked of
Bernstein drama, "The Thief," to the
Grand, in Davenport, this evening. A
high class company In a finished per
formance is assured.
"St Elmo" Hero FridaysThe Illi
nois will offer as Its attraction next
Friday evening "St. Elmo," a drama
tization of Augusta J. Evans' famous
novel of the same name. This play
has been one of the successes of the
decade and It Is peculiar that this
story, so long popular, should only
have found Its way to the stage during
the current year. "St. Elmo" has been
dramatized by Miss Grace Hayward,
whose stage version of "Graustark"
has met with much success. Local
theatergoers are promised a splendid
production and a cat of much excel
lence. Blast From Hillsdale. This Is from
the Hillsdale Post of last week: "The
O. W. Blain Entertainment company
was the closing number of the lyceum
course which closed Friday evening.
Owing to the inclement weather only
a small crowd was present, but if all
reports are true, those were fortunate
who stayed away. The company came
with a good reputation, hut their en
tertainment Friday night was as near
a total failure as was ever given in
this place. It is a shame that sucn
a company as this should go about the
country and hold up people under the
pretense of giving an entertainment.
The other three numbers of the
course were quite good and satisfied
all. The receipts fell somewhat short
of the expenses and the Woodmen ua
der whose auspices the course was
given will have to pay money out of
their treasury to meet some of the

managers to star In musical comedy.
Miss May De Sousa of Chicago, wno
for five years was the idol of London
theatergoers, and whose popularity
abroad is said to have exceeded even
that of Edna May. another American
girl who enjoyed the high favor of the
English audiences, scon will make her
reappearance In Chicago at the Ma
jestic theater. There is a pretty bit
of sentiment attached to Miss De
Sousa's decision to appear at the Kohl
and Castle theater, for It was this firm
that gave her a first opportunity o
wards the goal of hage success In th'ir
production of "The Land of Nod" at
the Chicago opera house. Several maa
agers importuned Miss De Sousa for
her services. "No, no," she said, 'I
am going to play first In Chicago, my
home, and for Kohl and Castle who

Hopper Opens In Chicago. The
most successful musical play that De
Wolf Hopper has ever appeared in,
and one that has met with the critical
and popular approval, is his new song
comedy, "The Matinee Idol," In which
he began an engagement at the Olym
pic theater, Chicago, last evening.
Hopper has been appearing for so
many years as a comic opera king
that it will be Interesting to see him
in a role which, although closely fitted
to his Individuality, is entirely differ
ent from anything that he has ever
done. Everywhere that the new play
has been produced it has been agreed
that he has found a vehicle for his
talent that will last him for years, and
as he said in one of his speeches re
cently, he must find it a relief to he
playing a human being, even though
that human being is an actor. "The

Feels liike a Youns Boy.
Mr. K. L. Hibbard of Bristol,
111., says:. "Since last September
I felt myself declining in health.
My back became very weak and
besides I felt tired and worn out.
Why I became so bad at last I had
to give up work. The more I
rested the worse I got, so finally
I decided to go and see Dr. Bartz
and try his electrical treatments.
The result is that now after a
short course my back is strong
again and work every day without
the least trouble. In fact, I feel
like a young boy."

There are a number of song hits that

"Let Me Build a Xest for You.'' "The
Dancing Banshee" and "That's the Time

comic opera innovations for which
Daniel V.Arthur, Hopper's new mana

Arthur who, as manager of Marie Ca
