The Swan-Moore dramatic company
gave a successful presentation of 'Fogg's
Ferry" at Harper's theatre last evening to
a large and highly pleased audience.
Tonight that highly entertaining bit of
comedy, "The Telegram," is to be given
and a very pleasant occasion is prorrisd.
Tonight at the Burtis at Davenport
Joseph Haworlh is to present his play.
"The Soldier of Fortune." Mr. Has
worth is one of the young actors of the
present day who is forging to the front.
He had not yet attained the age of 19
when he played "Hamlet."
The local public is looking forward with
considerable anticipation to Clara Morris'
appearance at Harper's theatre next Tues
The San Francisco Call, speaking of a
recent performance at the Baldwin thea
tre, says: "Clinton Stuart's adaptation of
Renee,' from the French, as presented by
Miss Clara Morris and company at the
Baldwin last evening, may be conceded a
decided success. The house was largely
and fashionably attended, and the audi
ence followed the evolvement of the plot
with undeviating interest, applauding
particular phases in each act, and partic
ularly the climaxes, recalling the actors
after the fall of each curtain. The situ
ations and groupings on which the cur
tain drops are all remarkably vivid and
.interesting. The story of the play is one
of vicarious sacrifice a daughter giveB
up her position in society, her husband,
her reputation, to save ber mother's good
name. In the title role Miss Clara Morris
revived the best impressions formed of
her acting ability, and at times seemed to
be inspired with the spirit of filial devotion-
The uncomplainicg way in which
;be bears her self-imposed burden, even
when the vt-ry parent for whom she does
this turns back upon ber as a dishonored
and degraded wife,' caused the tears to
well up into many eyes. The acticg was
so earnest and apparently so sincere that
the heart-sttiegs, touched by the skillful
fingers of this natural interpretess of the
emotional, gave a ready and irresistible

Ca'arrh Can't be Cured
with local applications, as thev cannot
reach tbe seat of the disease. Catarrh is
a blood or constitutional disease, and in
order to cure it you haye to take internal
remedies. Hall's Catarrh cure is taken
internally, and acts directly on tbe blocd
and mucous surfaces. Hall's Catarrh
Cure is no quack medicine. It was pre
scribed by one of the best physicians in
this country for years; and is a regular
prescription. It is composed of the best
tonics known, combined with the best
blood purifiers, acting directly on the
mucous surfaces. The perfect combina
tion of tbe two ingredients is what pro
duces such wonderful results in curing
catarrh. Send for testimonials free.

Mr. R. S- McCullough's Story He was
Discouraged Without Hope The
Result of His Treatment With Scott
"I was in a very serious conditioc when
I visited tbe Institute," said Mr. Robert
S. McCullough, who is employed with the
Davenport Mills Co. "My trouble was
catarrh and has existed for over four
years. At first my head, nose, ears and
throat became all stopped so I could
hardly breathe or swallow. My appetite
failed, food distressed my stomach and
gave me no s rength. I lost flesh rapidly.
I was not able to sleep half tbe time, and
was more tired and miserable when I
would gel up than before 1 went to bed. I
had a constant discharge of y ello w,6tringy,
mucous from my nnse and throat. My
throat became sore and voice husky, and
roaring and buzzing noises in my ears,
with severe pains in my chest and sweat
ing at night. After the second treat
ment I found more benefit than I had by
three prtvious years doctoring in the city
and I now feel like a new man " Mr. Mc
Cullough has lived in the city for 20
years and worked for tbe Davenport
Mills company for nine years, and will
gladly talk with anyone similarly
