Peddling toothpick is apparently
a most lucrative profession, as was
shown by the size of the roll that
Charles Barnett, a badly crippled
peddler, had on him last evening
when he was placed under arrest by
Officer Meenan for drunkenness. The
amount was $63.55 and this morning
It was lessened by $9.10, the amount
of the fine and costs aesepsed by Jus
tice Schroeder for the man's disor
der. Barnett met a friend ysterday
afternoon, he said, and fell from the
aqua cart. He evidently fell badly,
for he was unable to account for the
fight and the insolence that he doled
out to the police officers last even

proper person as Georgia Drew Par
sons, went about among elevator op
erators, Janitors, maids and butch
er's boys to gather evidence against
a recreant husband was told yester
day In Judge Charles A. McDonald's

that It brought Mrs. Drew a decree of
divorce as soon as Judge McDonald
had heard it. The husband la the
case Is George Webster Parsons, who,
at the time Mrs. Parsons undertook
to become her own detective, was
playing the part of Blackie Daw, con

Bide the city," said Mrs. Drew, "and
had heard reports that my husband
was unfaithful. When I arrived In
Chicago I was told by a person In
whom I had the utmost confidence
that he was living in an apartment
at Cass and East Ohio streets with a
woman who said she was his wife. 1
went to the place and talked to the
elevator boy, the butcher's boy, the
maids and the Janitor. They con
firmed my worst suspicions."

No Need of It, When You Can
Make a Pint of Laxative
Curative Cough Syrup
The only way to cure chronic
or acute cold on the lungs, sore
throat, bronchitis, etc., is to gret
a medicine which will at once
relieve the fever and congestion
responsible for the cough (which
Is only a symptom of Inflamma
tion), and then proceed to re
store the blood and membranes
to a healthy state. A fine laxa
tive, curative coug-h syrup, which
will de'.la-ht any one who tries It.
can be made at home cheaply. It
beats ordinary cough syrups a
hundred to one, because It does
not sicken or constipate.
Obtain of your druggist, or
have him order from the whole
saler, 14 ounces essence Men-tho-laxene.
Empty It lno a pint
bottle. Then make a syrup with
a pint of granulated sucrar and
a half pint of botllnf? water. Put
fn fire and let It come to a boll.
Then cool and fill up pint bottle,
and you will aa;ree with the wri
ter that it makes the finest,
quickest, active eousrh syrup you
have ever tried. And It not only
rellevea. but euraa.

There is a
pire this week. Never heard of one?
Well, if you had been among the first
nighters last evening, you would ap
preciate what is meant by a scream
bill, for it did seem as though the
spectators would tear the seats away
from their concrete holds during the
closing act, "O'Hooligan at the North
Pole," a comedy of the extreme slap
stick variety. There are tnree people
in the act, two of whom Impersonate
characters familiar to the followers
of the comic pages of the metropolitan
newspapers. A complete set of scenery
representing a steamer at dock, is car
ried. It's just a lot of foolishness, and
i after it is all over you wonder what
jyou have been laughing at. But you'll
i laugh, just the same, if there is a
'laugh in your sydtem. While Manager
Dolly this week appears to have deter
1 mined to give his patrons an abun
dance of fun he has not overlooked the
; artistic side of his program, and this j
its taken care of by Ellir-on and Elli-;
son, appearing as "The Village Black-;
smith." First these performers give'
selections on the xylophone, and such
playing you probably never have heard ;
on this Instrument. They close with a .
beautiful setting in an interpretation :
