Blanders are some of the hest men
rho ever donned Islander uniforms
.nd who have enjoyed great popular
ly among the fans here in bygone
iays. Christy Wilson is probably the
aost popular Islander wno ever
layed here. . He was strictly me
roduct of the home diamond break-
pg into the game while yet a young
ter. He delivered the goods year

lidn't pitch much this year, as he
las used in the box only four times

layed. but nevertheless he feels in
Ine fettle and able to hurl them over
jhe pan with his old time accuracy
Ind effectiveness. He is elected to
itch either Saturday or Sunday.
Ohtera Are Stara, Alao.
Christy is not the only real star
n the lineup, however. Johnny Wan

pye, is to appear as an ex-Islander.
is is also Pete Lister, who played
inagniflcent ball here for several
rears and who made so many friend3

Island his home. Joe Berger and
piyde McBride, of last year's pen
jant winners, need no introduction

ed as cracking good players who de

The whole ex-Islander array is one

The presence of Billy Neal and Dow

as "Princess Artemia" and George A.

the latter the son of a Christian mother
and himself a supporter of the faith.
It is a powerful story, beautifully writ
ten and In its stage version magnifi
cently mounted. Miss Blair will best
be recalled in this section for her
"Zaza" and "Magda" roles. She is a
matured, careful and natural perform
er, and she appears to have found a
character well suited to her dramatic
talents. Mr. Lessey is big of physique
and handsome, and is endowed with
the vocal equipment that makes him
an Ideal lover of the period in which
the play has its setting. Of course, as
in all good stage stories, love and
faith triumph, and the climax picture
In the final act shows the lovers en
folded in each other's arms in the coli
setim, put there by the relentless and
faith-defying emperor, holding the lions
at bay with the upheld cross. The play
covers the whole gauntlet of human
emotions, and it teaches a forceful les
son in Christianity and love. Miss Blair
and Mr. Lessey were supported by a
splendidly balanced company. The
play was warmly received by the au
dience. , '
"THE MAN OF THE HOUR."
"The Man of the Hour' comes again
to the Illinois theatre next Sunday,
matinee and night. The play is a com-
edy by George Broadhurst. It deals with
modern city affairs, but depending for
interest more upon the human
qualities of Its incidents, the fidelity
of its characterization and the all-absorbing
nature of a novel story. The
play ran for two solid years at the
Savoy theatre in New York; this was
followed by a period of 16 weeks in
Chicago, and that, in turn, by five
months at the Tremont theatre, Bos
ton. The producers of the pla.y will
present it here with their special com
pany, which Includes: Harry English,

"THE KISSING GIRL."
The management of the Illinois thea
tre announces that the Stanislaus
Stange musical comedy, "The Kissing
Girl," for next Monday evening. "The
lyrics, the composer of its musical pet
tings, the designers of its scenic in
vestiture and costume embellishments,

to the snug and elegantly fitting atae

Chicago critic characterizes us a "sem
inary of loveliness," are all master
minds in their respective professions

so often in the past that they have
grown to believe they are immune from
her frowns. With beautiful Texas

and abetted by Herman Ilermsen, the

ful presentation of Mr. Stange's latest
work in this city. A complete ensem
ble shows 70 people, irrespective of
the company's orchestra, under the di
rectorship of Whitney Bennington. The
opera comique is in three acts with
beautiful settings by the artist, Thomas
Moses. The costumes are by Schoultz
and the military uniforms by Hirsch &
Co. The opera is staged personally by
Mr. Stange and the dancing novelties
arranged by Charles Jones.
"MARY JANE'S PA."
While "Mary Jane's Ta," in which
Max Figman will be presented by John
Cort at the Illinois Rieatre next Tues
day, is announced as an idyllic mid
west comedy, and might give one the
impression that it is one of those sweet,
bucolic dramas of country love and
tribulations, it Is in reality a great bis
comedy drama of real life in the groat
middle-west, with strong characters
doing strong things amid vital situa
tions. The big scene of the play comes
at the end of the second act in it a
newspaper goes to press. The climax
Is reached when Rome Preston, can
didate for nominatian, disables the
modern cylinder press and upsets the
type of a story exposing the corrupt
practices of his rival, in order to pre
vent its being printed, and thus saves
the owner ' of the newspaper, Portia
Perkins, the woman he has loved in
vain, from the threatened revenge of
the opposing candidate. She discovers
the accident to the press and is in des
peration, when her husband, played by
Figman, himself a tramp printer,
awakens from his lazy demeanor at her
impassioned call for help, and sets the
story. He then prepares an old-fashioned
hand press that is in the corner,
and amid the greatest enthusiasm,
turns ont the paper, printed on one
side, and wins the big political battle
for his wife. The incident serves to
awakan their long separated and sleep
ing souls, and the two are united again j

Yon ng Giant Less Interested in the
World's Championship Now
Chicago, Sept. 29. Miles McLeod,
ihe young farmer from Albany, Mo.,
who has the fighting bee In his bon
net, will return home tonight and
think it over. Miles will take back
with him something he did not bring
here. It is what is known in boxing
circles as a black eye. Ho will also
nurse a badly bruised nose. He will
probably never forget the amount of
blood he lost while on the visit to
Chicago. Miles has also concluded
that the championship of the pugills
tic world does not interest him as
much as it did.
All these important things in the
life of the young man, who stands six

and weighs 220 pounds minus cloth

Miles has always been a backward
boy, bashful and afraid of large
crowds, so he made it known that he
wanted no one present when he put
on the gloves with such a well known
boxer as Choynski. That wish was
granted and when the two donned the
big gloves in Gilmore's gymnasium
they were careful to see that no one
else was present. Fred Gllmore and
McLeod's little brother made up the
party. Both were needed to'help mop
up the gore after Choynski got through
with him. Gllmore says the men box
ed one round. McLeod says they
Owfn Moran Wins from "Pal" Moore.
Philadelphia, Pa., Sept. 29. Owen
Moran won from Pal Moore in their
fight at the National Athletic club last
night. It was an exciting bout, which
the Englishman won by his superior
rin craft and hard hitting ability.
The bout was rough throughout, the
last three rounds being a continual
slugging match. Moore fought low con
tinually and nearly lost the fight In
the third Tound when he fouled Mo
ran. Moran's punches had more steam
rnd his footwork and headwork were
better. Moran's eye was partly closed
and Moore's face was marked up.
