A much talked of play, which will be
produced for the second time at the Bur
tis tonight, is "The Clemenceau Case,"
which many; throughout the country
were ready to condemn before they bad
seen the play, because they thought the
studio scene was not quite proper.
Since then this scene has been modi
fied, aad as the interest cf the play does
not depend upon a single incident, the
company have had a most successful
tour, presenting it to large bouses every
where. Mis j Sybil Johnstone, the orig
inal Iza in the New York production, is
still ia the company ith others of the
original cast. It is a very strong play,
and of intense dramatic interest.
Howsoever opinions may vry regard
ing "The Clemenceau Case," it is uni
vcrsally concerted by all theatrc-goei's
that Mies Johnstone's Izt deserves to
rank among the few creations of the la?t
10 years. Miss Johnstone made a bit
last season, and gentlemen that saw the
performance last teason will biing their
ladies this time.

in plain view of the audience. Hi does
an act entirely different from anything
ever seen in this country, and wts eepe
cielly engaged for this orgariztioz in
Europe by Manager Cleveland. It is
safe to predict be will create a sensation
upon bis appearance here.
The St. Louis Republic has the follow
ing to say regarding Mattie Vxkera' new
play "The Circus Qaeen," which is to be
seen at Harper's theatre Friday night
"There are several pretty songs and dances
introduced in tnis string of comedy and
they are brought in jun the tight places
and are given in artiste style- The
songs are taking, the dancing is graceful
and the fun is honest and clean. Miss
Vickers never appeared to belt-r advac
tage and her versatility and charming in
genu fusnens were given wile scope."
Two great lectures are those by Robert
Nourse at Harper's theatre Thursday
nicht and Edwin Arnold at the Burtis at

J. B. Gordon is employed as watchman
over the U. 8. fleet commanded by Capt.
C. W. Durham, and now in KahlkeBros'.
harbor. As is customary, when he as
sumed the position last fall he was re
quired to Rive a receipt for all articles
put in nis charge, and among the articles
be receipted for was an iron band pump
worth $7.50, but which in reelity did not
belong to Uncle Sam at all, and it was
this fact that has caused a great deal of
trouble and some unnecessary expense.
The pump belonged to W. H. Darling's
sand fleet which is anchored in the same
harbor, and a day or two ago two young
men in the employ of the latter, in pat-slog,
noticed their pump on
one of the government barges
and immediately took it to their
boat and locked it up. When Watch
man Gordon discovered what bad been
done he waxed wroth, and immediately
swore out a search warrant which was
placed in the hands of Constable Elk
hart, who found the property locked up
in a closet, and warrants were then
sworn out charging the young men with
larceny, and the hearing of the case was
set for Saturday af'ernoon. In the
meantime Mr. Gordon discovered that
the pump didn't belong to the govern
ment, and after a consultation he with
drew the charges, and paid the costs,
$8 10. and now he wonders how he is
going to get back at himself.

The girl gave him a tender little shake
and told him to hnsh tip.
"Listen at her," he said to the clerk
with a chuckle. "Listen at her. Don't

don't. Wants me to hush np. But I
won't. Say, mister, can't we get a li

he said, slapping the clerk across the

and took the fee.
"Didn't I tell yon she was the biggst
fool in ten states," he said as he stuck
the license into his pocket. "Look at
her, will you? Slick as a whistle and as
purty as a yearlin calf. Got a hundred
acre farm, too, in her own right, and
she's goin to marry a feller like me.
