With one big stride, Louie Harms
came back into his own last night,
pat the kibosh on the jinx and the
lame back that has been hovering on
fc bantam body for weeks, and rolled
538 pin, thereby aiding his team, the
Independents, in taking tbree straight
game from the lowly PreUels, the
cellar champs of last season and chief
contenders for the same position
again this year. Hi8 work was an
inspiration for the rest of the team
and all Bhowed that they felt it ex
cept Hampton, whose luck broke bad
ly all the way through. After taking
the first game from the Davenport
team, by a routing finish in the last
two frames, the rest was easy sailing
for the Independents. Discounting
the 30 splits that crept into their
games, they had a pretty clean sheet

It is with great rejoicing that Louie

were reminded to give Frank Rertel

year, the credit for the improvement.

Captain Mueller was another leader
who outshone his team. He, too, was
the only one of the Athletics to go
over the 500 mark.
The Athletics had to roil a "kitty"

from the lineup.

has one of the best collections to be

separated and all have adequate
shelter. The enclosure comprises

mate agrees with the animals perfectly.

AT THE ILLINOIS.
"The White Sister." presented at
the Illinois theatre last night, was in
very capable hands, and It held the
rapt attention of the small audience
which wae present. The play is not
one for amusement, but is a powerful
drama with a moral to it. The action
centers around the "White Sister,'
who becomes (a nun after being con
vinced of the death of her lover. Five
years later, shortly after she has
taken her final vows, the lover comes
back as though from tbe dead and in
sists that she give up the veil. She
explains that she cannot honorably
renounce her vows and despite her
love for him she refuses. After an
unsuccessful effort to coerce her into
petitioning the pope for a dispensa
tion, the lover shoots himself. Then
a high church dignitary learns the
circumstances in the case and he de
cides to intervene and ask the pope
to free the nun. The death of the
lover makes this needless and the nun
volunteers for service in a leper col

To see with their own eyes the
places of history, world wonders and
world-wide activities and to have
them made more vivid to their minds
is the laudable and praiseworthy mo
tive which prompts 3,000,000 people
to travel with Lyman H. Howe each
season via his Travel Festival. In
recognition of this true appreciative
interest Mr. Howe will take his
audience at the Illinois this evening
for a pictorial tour to tbe homes of
genius, shrines of art and sites of
epoch-making history in Rome,
Pisa, Florence and other Italian
centers. In Florence, that treasure
house of Italy where art reached its
zenith and which is one of the most
attractive cities in the world, the
Palazzo Vecchlo is visited a palace
which has been standing in massive
grandeur over 600 years. A statue
of Dante is depicted which is so life
like that It seems as if tbe sculptor
had endowed it with life itself. Trln
ity bridge, spanning the Arno, may
be safely described as the only
structure of its kind in the world be
cause hundreds of families make
theUr permanent residence on the
sides of the bridge. Then the his
toric edifice known as the Bargello
paiace is inspected, Dut still more
impressive is the world-renown ca
thedral. The countless specimens of
architecture and the glorious dome
which crowns the edifice are all
shown in detail. The beauty of the
series is enhanced by magnificent
views of the bay of Naples. Then
the Industrial life of Italy is rep
resented by the famous marble
quarries of Carrara. Here, where
the purest marble of the world has
been quarried for centuries, some of
the methods of handling are shown
in sharp contrast . with what would
be the American way, although tho
scenes show that In a mechanical
sense, tbe operations are very mod-j
