"The Vendetta"' is lo be presented at
Harper's theatre tonight and will beyond
a doubt be witnessed by a lsre audience.
The Eas'.on (Pa.) Express e&fsof this
A large audience attended the per
formance of "The Vendetta" last night.
"The Limited Mail" packed the house the
night before. It is seldom Etston 09
the opportunity of seeing two ouch re
rrarkahle productions in as many days.
"The Vendetta" is to the sea what "The
L mited Mail" is lo the rail. Both pro
duciionsare masterpieces. Both plays
are stories of deep heart interest. 1$ th
companies have created sensations here,
and bo'h will be wel-omed by overflow
inn bouses should they return. Let us
hope they will.
Tomorrow night the Ariel-Thomas
combination is to appear at Harper's the
atre unc"er the auspices of the K ick Isl
and Lecture assocu'ion.

Sa'urday evening as im "Prince and tLe
Pauper," in Mark Taiis story of that
name, id a wonderful child. She is really
an actress a natural and cultivated ar
tist, although scarcely 11 years old.
There is nothing of the juvenile amateur
or mere reciter about her. 1L r u.emory

She a'Surm-3 with such naturalness and
skill that her audiences arc rtmrmed scd
astonished. The play is exceedingly in
teresting and admirib'y adapted from
Msrk Twain's clever story.
The Amercan comedy "A Barrel of
Money," was produce J in Omaha wetk
before last and is sp.,krn of as foilows by
the Omaha World-Hi raid: The first pre
sentation of -'A Barrel of Monej"irt
Omaha was Given at the Grand opera
house last night. Oje of the largest
audiences of the season was present a: d
the play was enthusiastically received.
The " Barrel of Money- is a highly inter
estirR comedy with a plot that c ff rs
just enough tragedy to raise it above the
ordinary plays of the kind. Several
thrilling situations are introduced and
are succeeded by a clash of fun and
music before the audit nee has had litre
to tire of the more classical scenes. The
company is an exceptionally good one
and without exception Fustained their
parts admirably."' It will be at Harper's
theatre Saturday niht.

wouia not accept it as part pay

42 cents cash, whereas it now giveR them

in cash wnula be trore acceptable than
the old books which to the company must

The Scott Medical Institute
which has just closed its work
of free treatment has
been a success.so far as can be
proved by the numbers of
afflicted people who have
thronged the Institute daily,
many of whom found relief
after the first treatment. This
is a medical institute coming
to our city well recommended,
the physicians having received
their diplomas from the best
medical colleges in the United
States as well as in foreign
countries, and it has come to
stay as can be proved by the
contracts they have made
which are without exception by
the year. The physicians have
decided to place the price of
treatment within the reach of
the poor as well as the rich.
They treat all diseases with
marked success with their
Catarrh i Diseases of Women
These physicians also guar

body in from three to five min

find out what your troubles

they will take vour case, but if
