Lave told me that he thought too
fciuch of me and I had better quit, aa
they thought I could do better.
; Now I see nothing wrong with this
young man and I do not care for go

for I am not a society girl. 1 have
to work hard and am always kept

Dear .V.-?. Thompson: I am thirty-
Jhreo. My ir:ir is dark brown and
is turning gray very fast. I have
used hair tonics to turn it back dark,
but as soon as I quit using' them my
hair lcoks faded again. Will you
lease give me a good remedy that
lwill turn my hair in a few days?
There is no remedy tha. will turn
your hair dark again. DyeB are apt
to be injurious and I cannot recom-
mend them. Walnut hair stain 'M

used. The best thing you can do is
to see that your health is in good
condition; that will help your hair
Also rub a little kerosene into the
scalp every day or two, and brush
the hair thoroughly every night, be
ing sure that your brushes and
combs are always clean. This will
net make your hair turn dark agiin,
but it will keep it from getting gray
rapidly and will give it a gloss.

lacking In entertaining qualities. On
the contrary, it is a delightful Btory
of everyday life, in which the plot
hinges upon the misery which creeps
into a household through circum
stances which lead to suspicion v and
jealousy, and of a part which a priest,
Rev. Brian Kelly, plays In bringing
about a correct understanding. A
rosary of pearls figure In the unfold-1
lng of the plot and its final denoue
ment It is stated the play is hand
somely Btaged by the producers, Row
land and Clifford and is enacted by a
powerful acting cast consisting of
Blosser Jennings, Florence Wright
Eleanor Rella, Harry Price, Nettie De
Coursey, Reginald Knorr, Henry Gar
ron and others. "The Rosary" is a
play which every lover of clean and
entertaining stage productions should
see. Six companies, all equally form
ed as to strength of cast, are tour
ing the country again this season,
repeating the hit that this play made
everywhere last year. It will be seen
at the Illinois here next Sunday.
AT THE EMPIRE.
Yodeling such as Scanlan and Em
mett gave us is now almost a lost art.
You have heard performers who posed
as yodelers, but invariably they were
a disappointment. One of the excep
tions is to be found on the bill for the
first half of the week at the Empire.
He is Jere Sanford. Jere is of the
old school, and you will apreciate that
fact and the art of the man, the in
stant he gets into vocal action. Jere
blend3 his singing with a chore boy
characterization, this latter resorted
to doubtless to meet the requirements
of present-day vaudeville staging. He
has a fresh line of patter, too, and
then he whistles after a fashion that
you will like. But It Is In his yodeling
where he shines, offering several of
the songs that you heard when you
were a boy. Sanford Is a wrhole treat
in himself. To be sure there are other
good things on the bill; in fact every
act may be classed a feature. The
Juggling Normans have the big offer
ing, and their work last night was so
fast that they kept the audience busy
following their movements, While it
borders on the thriller kind there is
displayed such ease and grace in the
exchange of clubs by the five partici
pants that you marvel how it is pos
sible for men to reach such perfection
in the performance of their stunts.
Corrigan and Vivian, rllfle experts,
have a surprise in connection with
their offering. The lady introduces
the act with a song, well done. Then
6he shoots targets from the stage,
afterward taking a positorr in the aisle
of the auditorium and sniffing matches
in a cabinet behind the footlight. As
a climax, Miss VU-ian sings, a young
man accompanies her on the violin,
and Mr. Corrigan chimes In harmon
iously by cracking bells with rifle
wads. Clinton and Rogers are about
as neat a team as you will see in a
season of vaudeville-going. They are
just a nice young couple, who sing
and dance pleasingly, wear good
clothes and have a way about them
you can't help liking. Joseph Reming
ton and Co. have a sketch, "The Mil
linery Salesman," in which some smart
dialogue is neatly put over.

SOLICIT FUNDS TO BUILD
ANNEX TO GRACE CHURCH
A congregational meeting of Grace
Lutheran church was held at the
church last evening to receive repjorS
from the building committee compos
ed of Dr. C. M. Foss, Andrew JCempe
and 'J. Bodeen relative to an exten
sion to the church. It is proposed to
build additional Sunday school rooms
at the north end of the church, and the
committee appointed to investigate
the bids finds that the cost will be
$560 more than is at hand for that
purpose. A special committee of eight
was appointed to solicit funds with this
end in view, and it is expected that
the amount will be raised by the first
of next week, an adjourned meeting
having been called for Monday night.
The Sunday school has outgrown its
presen? quarters and additional (room
is necessary fcr the continued growth
of the school.

and we had been dispatched to ques
tion the A. Y. M. on matrimony. Young
people today, we had been told, were
marrying at an earlier age. Was this
well? we were to ask him, and what
did he think of the married life, any
way? When we surprised him at his work
he was -singing a popular song, the
words of which seem to dwell on the
joys of parentage, and we interrupted
him when he reached the part "Fath
er's so happy he's jumping for joy."
Here was the opening we sought
"Mr. A. Y. M, we would like to ask
you to grow voluble on the subject of
matrimony. Would you please scale
the heights of grandiloquence and help
us dash off 300 words on Spousal
Caree and their subsequent delights?
Are. you in favor of Hymen's Hazard
or are you not?" We nervously
awaited the reply.
