Chicago. Jan. 11. The exposition of
styles In women's gowns at the Con
gress hotel by the Ladies' Tailors and
Dressmakers association of America
nas made almost a failure by the
plumpness of Chicago young women
who were "loaned" as models. Six
fascinating "try on ladies" from State
ftreet department stores appeared.

"Ach, how ran I put my gown on
Fueh a woman?" inquired Robert
I'luym of Washington, spreading his
hands eloquently, "She is too, what
you say? wide."
A second of the six was led Into
th dressing room. She was undeniably
pretty, aUo undeUably plump.

"Is It not so?' demanded the astute
Mr. Iluym of the model, "You are
a shoe model? You have a pretty
face and a harming foot, but my dear
youiiK lady, these designs are for slira
womifl." He held one of the gowns
up. "See," he said. "You couldn't
wltfRle Into this."
Th't the other four were brought
forward. None of them would fill the
bill. It was too apparent to Mr.
J'luym's educated eye that they would
too completely fill the gowns.
"The fashionable figure is the stove
pipe," Mr. Pluym explained. "We are
to have another season of tlfiht skirts.
The gowrs that we brought with us
have all been fitted to slender young
women. We can't use these girls." 1
The half dozen models were sent
back to the department stores. When
it was found impossible to obtain
others from the theatres on such
short notice, a woman tailor con
sented to wear the gowns.

a warm welcome tomorrow night.
Although Mme. Frances Alda's ex
perience in America has been limited
to her two successful seasons in
opera, the Australian prima donna's
reputation abroad rests in large meas
ure upon her achievements in the con
cert field. Mme. Alda who in pri
vate life is the wife of Signor Gatti
Gasazza has sung repeatedly in Lon
don, on the continent and likewise In
South America in concert and ora
torio, and her work in these branches
of her , art has been highly prtiised.
Mme. Alda's repertoire is an excep
tional one, and her recital programs
are invariably interesting. Anas
from the various operas in which her
principal successes at the Metropoli
tan and Boston opera houses were
scored last season, are included in
the concert repertoire, while songs
In French, German, Italian and Eng
lish serve to disclose the purity of
her style, her marked musical Intelli
gence, and her splendid equipment as
a concert singer. Mme. Alda appears

Rheumatism Re.ieved In Few Hours.
N. B. Langley, Madison, Wis., says:
"I was almost helpless with rheuma
tism for about five months. Had it in
my neck so I could not turn my head,
and all through my body. I tried three
doctors and many remedies without
any relief whatever until I procured
Dr. Detchon's Relief for Rheumatism.
In a few hours the pain was relieved
and in three days the rheumatism was
completely cured and I was at work."

AT THE GRAND.
At the Grand next Sunday, Monday
and Tuesday, Messrs. Klaw & Erlanger
will present their great drama written
around and about the wild scenery of
Arizona, entitled "The Round-Up." The
character of the country permits of a
grand scenic production. The great
battle scene in the third act is tremen
dously realistic. It is safe to predict
that this theatre will be taxed to its
capacity during the entire engagement,
"The Round-Up" is said by many men
who have spent a great part of their
lives on the western plains to be a true
picture of southwestern Arizona in the
days when General Crook was pursuing
Conchlse in the fastnesses of the bad
lands on the borders of Mexico. The
production is as large as that other fa
mous Klaw & Erlanger production,
"Ben Hur," and it comes In a special
train of eight cars. The company num
bers 134 people and 20 horses. One of
the dramatic incidents shows 20 mount
ed Indians riding along the edge of a
cliff, an effect which is made possible
by adroit mechanism by which the an
imals are hoisted to a point In the vi
cinity of the gridiron above the scenes.
Either the Central association is a
money maker or Tom Hayden knows

Is a second baseman and performed
last year in the Chicago city league,
where he batted .280 and Is said to
be a fast infielder. Tolly will be a
candidate for second base, proving
the theory that Bay Is after young
sters and that Bloomlngton will by
no means be represented by a team
that has long served its usefulness.

In the Three-Eye league. Manager
McGraw had no place for Johnson, and
accepted the terms by Kinsella for
his transfer to the Cardinals. With
Wilson, Myers and Hartley on the

St. Louis is in need of a slugging
backstop, Kinsella suggested the
transfer, and his terms were accepted.
Johnson has been In the Three-Eye

noted for his slugging ability. Hia
average for this period has been near
the .300 mark, and it Is believed that
he will be able to make good with the
