Hlldebrandt surely came back in his
old form last night.
The lure of the footlights was too
strong for W. Bleuer of the Stock Lead
ers. He decided to forego the privi
lege of bowling for the amateur theatri
cal. Kinney of the Plow City team came
back last night after a lay-off on ac
count of sickness.
The Bachelors surely had another
run of good luck when they
won a game withacore of 693. They
increased their lead by one game on
this account since the Cubs only won
two out of three.
Captain Carron of the Bachelors
went 6ome when he bowled 117 In the
last game. Sivil went under him one
point in the same game.
Ed need not worry about the booby
prize for he took itwith honors last
night. A high score of 119 for three
games and a total of 40 or an average

Stephen made the high score for
the three games last evening, pulling
down 550 pins during the session.
Mixer and Swanson showed up in
good form. Mixer totalled 523 pins
and Swanson has 517 to his credit.
Woltmann got low score for the
Stockieaders with 388 pins.

In the comedy department, some
really new and perfectly good Jokes
were sprung by the men who took
the part of the ordinary end men of
the minstrels. Charles Roantree'a,
"wireless telegraphy" trip around the
world, Bill Toal accompanying, was
especially funny. Bells had been plac
ed through the theatre and operated
ty batteries and the effect was as
good as it was novel.. Preceding the
finale, Charles Imhof and F. O. Can
edy gave a vaudeville skit. Imhof as
usual was especially good. The scene
was closed with a favorite Irish song.
Mr. Imhof sang the verse and Floyd
Wilson from the auditorium of the
house, sang the chorus.
The first part of musical numbers
concluded with "Beautiful Doll,"
sung by Mr. Roantree. Miss Dorothy
B. Simpson took the part of the me
chanical doll with a very pretty little
dance. During the dance and chorus.
Bill Toal, the original fun maker,
climbed a pole and from this van
tage point, sailed some dolls out to
Miss Charlotte Anderson in the
olio singing "In the Garden of My
Heart" as a solo number and "My
Hero" for an encore, added greatly
to the performance. Miss Anderson
possesses a remarkably sweet so
prano voice. Following, Floyd Wil
son gave "The Mysterious Rag" for
a song and dance.

sented at the Illinois tonight. The
temptations offered by the scenes of
the play, which are laid in the moun
tain defiles of Bulgaria, have spurred
Mr. Whitney to extraordinary efforts
in investing the piece with realistic
efforts in the matter of scenery. The
strange peasant and military cos
tumes were made especially for the
production by Bulgarian handicrafts'
men and much of the furniture used
in the interiors was purchased from
actual households in Bulgaria by
Mr. Whitney, who spent many weeks
in that land during the past three
years, studying the manners and
costumes of the people. The pro
duction of "The Chocolate Soldier"
which he is offering this year is
marked by an even greater degree
of elegance and vividness than here
tofore. The Whitney Opera company
is said to be eminently fitted to cope
with the difficulties of both score and
libretto. Mr. Whitney's cardinal
principle in selecting his companies
is that every role, from the mana
ger's point of view, is a leading role

erally given to filling the "star" part
