"ALMA, WO WOHNST DU?"
There are said to be a number of
alluring songs in the German musical
sensation, "Alma, Wo Wohnst Du?"
which comes to the Illinois theatre
tomorrow night. There ia. for in
stance, "Dor Schwartzer Kater'' (the
Black Cat), and "Weibcr, Weihcr!"
(Women, Women!). The value of this
musical play is happily attested by
the fact that it played a whole year
in New York, whero it has not yet ex
hausted its vogue, and that It. conios

mnn stage of this country some of the
biggest successes it has ever known.
Cora Marena, a singing comedienne of
charm, beauty and talents, will ap
pear as Alma Dufaur, the dashing
heroine of the comedy. So brilliantly
has this play been constructed, and so
happy in its illustration of character,
it is claimed, that one need possess
no knowledge of German to under
stand and enjoy it.
SMALL TALK OF STAGE.

do they have their own nursery and
a matron to care for them, but their

KLEIST AT MAJESTIC.
Paul Kleist, appearing at the Ma
jestic theatre this week, is an artist
who has his competitors beaten in one
thing pantomime. He has overcome
the handicap of the pantomimist who
must remain silent during the act and
depend upon excessive shrugs and
clapping of hands to express surprise,
fear, joy and other emotions. He
does this by the use of a whistle grad
uated to such exquisite shades that he
can actually whistle whole sentences
to his audience and they understand
him as perfectly as the spoken word.
He is an artist on musical Instruments
and produces hilarious laughter by
bringing to life wooden figures which
dance about in queerest attitudes. It
is a real novelty, this act of Mr.
Kleist's, and worth seeing. To see
odd shapes waltzing in mid-air, or ob
serve a battleship riding on nothing
but the thin other is a bit of oddity
I which old people appreciate as much
as children. Manikin puts on a frog
contortion art, with special scenery
and Mrs. Casey sings "Twilight." Th
motion pictures depict a struggle be
tween labor and capital, with a happy
"GIRL OF MY DREAMS."
In "The Gtrl of My Dreams." the
new and mmical comedy in which Jo
seph M. Gait.-s is presenting John
Hyams and Leila Mclntyre, well
known vaudeville headliners as th
team of Hyams and Mclntyre, there is
a strong Quaker element manifesting
itself not only In costume but In dia
logue or at least two of the principal
characters. Although one of the most
quaint and interesting features of
American lite, the Quaker is rarely
seen on the stage of late years even
less frequently than a decade or two
r.go. "The Girl of My Dreams" Is de
scribed as an atmospherical musical
play. It is in two acts and is the work
of Wilbur D. Nesbit of the Chicago
Evening Post and Otto Hauerbach
Karl Hoschna is responsible for the
music, which he confidentially asserts
is even more alluring than his two for
mer great successes "Three Twins
and "Madame Sherry." The comedy
element Is said to be largely of the
farcical kind with amusing situations
that happen naturally with the telling
of the story. Mr. Gaites has engaged
an exceptionally well balanced com
pany of playors to support Hyams and
Mclntyre. among whom are Percival
Aylmer, Harry Clark, Henrietta Lee,
Nita Allen, Hoy L. Royce, Irving
Brooks. Leila Smith and others. The
production, it is promised, will be
most elaborate from a scenic as well
as from a costume standpoint. "The

Useful Hints for the Auoist
It may be taken as axiomatic that a
knack is required in the manipulation
of any starting crank, but the greater
number of thciu would be much more
easy to haudle if the releasing spring
was made lighter. With a stiff releas
ing spring any relaxation of the turn
ing effort cn the part of the one crank
ing causes the handle to fly out and dis
engage itself. It has then to be turned
around and pressed In again. While it
is advisable to have a spring sufficient
ly strong to insure that tbe ratchet
will be kept out of engagement while
the engine is running, there Is no rea
son why the spring should be at all
stiff. An extremely light spring will
serve all the purposes of releasing if
the crank spindle is occasionally given
a drop or two of oil.
Tbe use of nn Inferior quality of lu
bricating oil leads to a number of evils,
apart from unsatisfactory lubrication.
Carbon deposits will form on tbe com
bustion chamber walls, on the piston
heads and on the points of the spark
ing plugs. Ignition will be interfered
with and finally stopped through short
circuiting across the insulation of the
plugs. The deposit may in time be
come so thick as to hold sufficient heat
from one explosion to another to cause
pre-ignition, which is liable to cause
the motor to run with more or less
"knock." If pre-lgnition is suspected
a test can be made by cutting out tno
ignition current. If this fault is not
present the motor will stop, but if pre
ignition is occurring the motor will
run without the assistance of legiti
mate aids to ignition. Shutting off
the supply of fuel will bring the en
gine to a standstill.
When a dry battery appears exhaust
ed it will usually bo found that its
deliberation is due primarily to the
contents having become too cfry. Holes
should accordingly be made at the top
and water poured in. which will start
the current again in most cases. Vin
egar may be used with even better ef
fect than water, but in any case
these measures should be regarded
only as of a temporary nature, and
new batteries should be obtained at
the earliest possible moment.
Large tires will stand harder usage
than small ones and will give better
service as long as they last. A less
abrupt bending of tbe fabric of a tire
invariably follows a shock to a larger
than a smaller tire, and tbe strain ex

thus affording better traction and con
serving the strength of the tire.
Amateur repair men when taking
any equipment of their machines to
pieces are liable to lose or misplace
some of the smaller nuts or screws
unless a definite method of keeping
them Is followed. For this rpason it
Is advisable to use a number of small
boxes into which tbe small pieces from
each part of the car may be sorted.
t Is especially worth while to do this
where some time may elapse before
the mechanism is put together again.
