C. Tyler, who is the head of the Lieb

' that he haa had a desire for some time,
will have tl.e pleasure of seeing
"Joseph and His Brethren" for a week
lefore the end of the present season.
There are two very important points
that local patrons would do well to
remember with regard to the attrac
tions of the Liebler company: First,
that the firm never had a number two

inew the people were as w ell informed

that he figured that there were enough
aeople in the tri-cities who loved the
tighest forms of dramatic art to bus-
trl-city theatres as they were in New
York or any of the other large cities.
Their casts are never cheapened or
their productions reduced. Secondly,
all this firm's plays are clean plays.

Presented by a Notable Company and Superb Scenic
The Light Eternal," an Impressive
religious drama, richly staged and cos
tumed and effectively presented by
the only company appearing in this
play, will be given at the Illinois nfxt
Tuesday. The play is an adaption or
the late Cardinal Wiseman's beautiful
story of "Fabiola." and deals
with the persecution of the Christians
by the Roman emperor. Diocletian,

FAMILY THEATRE. MOLINE.
Bills have come and gone at the
Family theatre of Moline, but It has
been w eeks since the excellence of the
present program for pafrons lias been
seaen. As topliners. Miller. Packer and
Selz. two men and a woman, who im
personate a man. are a veritable
scream. One is a Jew, the other is
red-vlsaged no-name personage and the
third a "live sport." Death enters one
scene in a melodramatic skit that
Ashle;' Cooper & Co. enact. A man
woman and small boy tike the charac
ter roles in "The Newsboy's Gift
tears may be forgiven in an au
dience while watching the players
and there is a bit of comedy inter
spersed to make the playlet go right.
Togan and Geneva are known in the
shor- world as the peers of tight wire
walking. The man in the act under
takes and successfully executes the
turning ot a back "chuck" on the wire.
Miss Maurn Is delighting with
her songs. She is accompanied
by Mr. Richmond, a skillful plan
1st. The performance of these two
is clever and one of the most merltor
ious parts of the entire bill. Zieka
and Siunders. who appear first on the
program, perform feats of magic, such
as roiling up a lignteu candle In a
piece of paper. break:cg it into bits
and pieces and producing the candle
still lighted from beneath a coat tail.
The lady has a pleasing voice.
AT THE EMPIRE.
It Is reported that George M. Co
han, with 13.000.000 to the good, is to
leave the stage, and if this is true
the most noted theatrical family In
America will be broken up. says the
press agent. For years the "Royal
Family" of Jerry. Helen. Josephine
and George has toured the country' and
its value as a commercial attraction
has increased wi'b each season. Now
that George has decided to give his
time to playwriting and producing en
tirely, the theatrical world is casting
about for another family to replace
the Cohans. It is not impossible that
next season will see the Galvins, who
are now starring in the musical com
edy revue, "Little Miss Mix-up," to ap
pear at the Empire the first half of
next week, occuping the position. Not
only are the members of this remark
able family talented but where the
Cohans had only four there are do
legs than six Galvins working togeth
er In the one show. It is a regular
family affair. The stars, of course,
are Johnny Galvin and his sister. Ella,
who Is talked of aa the musical conn
ed.? find of the season. Then there
is the father, brother and two sisters,
who take all the principal parts In
the show, requiring only a chorus to
present an entire musical comedy in
condensed form for vaudeville. Like
the Cohans, all the Galvin children
have been brought up in the theatrical
business and are not lacking In exper
ience. Their efforts on the stage have
proved their right to a positlon-among
jthe leading musical comedy people
j and next season they will head a big
! musical comedy like the Cohan pieces.
! Johnny Galvin is responsible for the
j present show and Is planning things
I greater for next season.

MYSTERY OF THE SALMON.
Their Annual Mad Rushes and Death
The world's greatest salmon runs are
to be found along the shores of the
north Pacific ocean, in the states of
Washington. Oregon and California,
the province of British Columbia and
Alaska, on the American side, and Si
beria and Japan, on the Asiatic side.
So far. bow-ever, but few salmon have
been canned on the Asiatic side.
To one who has never witnessed
tbee annual runs It Is almost an im
possibility to convey an adequate Im
pression of the countless numbers of
fish that swim in from the sea In the
late spring and summer, all Imbued
with tbe same desire to gain suitable
grounds In tbe upper reaches of tbe
rivers, some of which are from 1.500 to
2,rKiO miles In length, where they may
perpetuate the species.
No obstacle appears too great to' be
surmounted in this feverish rnsb.
Jumping falls, shooting rapids, dodg
ing nets, bears, birds, mink, otter and
other enemies, fighting with other
males, whom tbe near approach of the
breeding season renders especially sav
age nil these are taken as a matter of
And yet one sometimes wonders If
the heroic struggle Is worthily repaid,
for the moment of victory is also that
of death, as. snd to relate.' these
valiant voyagers can breed but once
and then must die. their wasted bodies,
which have received no nourishment
since leaving salt water, becoming the
prey of any prowling bear or carrion
bird which may chnnce upon them.
Why these fish should all die after
spawning still remains one of the great
unsolved mysteries of the scientific
world. Wkle World Magazine.
