Strong Attraction Coming q
Above play la scheduled for East
Jordan on Wednesday, .October 2'Jrd.
Tne belovv article taken from the
Michigan Citvlnd., News of October
1st, and giyey a good Idea of the
charaRter of the play. . .
The Jylttlest Rebel," a good stur
dy melodrama which nerves to keep
alive some of the early traditions
t;ne can nut well afford to forget, was
gjyen 0 excellent presentation at the
Orpheutn Monday night, and ttie
audience was well pleased with the
entertainment. There is a lot of
action in this play and the sympathy
with which it abounds never fails to
touch the heart strings. There were
many moistened eyes.
The Littlest Rebel" is an example
of civil war plays which flourished
some years ago. Such plays were
generally believed to hav lost inter
est with the public, but to Edward
Peple fell the lot of changing the
Impression. The people to whom the
struggle of the north and the south
was an actual and painful experience
now form exceedingly small minority
of playgoer The Littlest Rebel,"
however, Is of interest for its own
suke, in spite of and not because of
auy factional prejudices. Its chief
success lies in the fact that It is writ
ten on a formula Chat dillers from
most other war plays. The love of a
gallant o tllcer who wears the blue for
a loyal daughter of the Confederacy
is not the motive of Pepie's drama,
It Is rather the humanity that is
stirred in the northern officer by the
little daughter of a southern scout up
on whose bead the penalties of war
have fallen rather heavily. It Is the
sorry plight of this little child which
from first to last appeals to the sym
pathies of the audience, and the aw
ful war Itself becomes only a sombre
and picturesque environment.
Little Vloiet Savoy, who plays the
title role Vlrgie is a bright little girl
with beautiful blueees, This little
character has been most successfully
drawn by Mr. Peple and it is admir
ably protraved by little Mtus Savoy,
a lovable little girl -
Upon her fate hinges the story of
the play. For a juvenile her work is
the best ever seen here. A leading
lady hardly in her teens holding the
center of the stage at times entirely
bv herself is nothing short of a mar
vel. She is a winsome little tot aud
those who saw her last night will
Jong baye occasion to pleasantly re
member the ' little rebej."
The leading male roles were taken
by Marshal Farnum, as Cupt. Her
bert Cary, a confederate scout and
father of Vergle, and Lynn Oj bourne
89 Lieut. Col. Morrison, U. S. Cal vary.
These roles were taken In the
original Chicago company by WJIJiam
and Dustin Farnum. Now there are
three companies, Dustin Farnum is
still playing Lieut. Morrison, of the
northern army, while William and
Marshall are at the head of their own
companies btt playing different roles
Mr. Osborne possesses everything
necessary for a successful Interpreta

Mr. Farpum, both of whom were su

was tnat of Martin Regan, who play
ed tLe part of the negro character,

Helen Scott appeared as Mrs. ITer
bcrt Cary, and It was regretted that
she was seen only In the Erst act. She
was very good as the wife of the con
federate scout. She has a pleasing
stage appearance and a strong per
sonality. The entire company Is a capable
one and none would ak for a more
Vivid or impressive war play.
Lots of unemployed men would
rather find fault than tjnd work.
Some marrhd poppies can patch up
a quarrel until ir. looks as good as new.
Most, men would make a beellne
for the tall timber If they saw justice
headed their way.
The man who1 is always on time
wastes many valuable hours waiting
for the other fellow.

Of the three candidates for gover
nor, Watklns, Ferris and Mussulman,
it is difficult to say which one is the
most enthusiastic prohibitionist, By
what trick of fate do the liquor in
terests find themselves thus eandidat.
A few months ago the liquor In
terests were represented as dominat
ing the political situation in Michi
gan. They had leagues aud societies,
organizations and clubs, lobbyists and
attorneys, slates and tickets In such
formidable array that some people
were inclined to believe that the liq
uor men had gained control of the
rising and set ting of the sun in this
state, and that it was Impossible to

Governors! Why they made gover

find? 'They stake all on one candi
date who met defeat, and now each
of the parties, democratic, progress
ive and republican, has a prohibition
ist as Its candidate for governor (or Js
there a fourth, a prohibitionist party?)
; Obviously, the liquor interest will
vote for someone for governor in spite
of this dllemna. They will choose
one of the three horns. Wh Irh one?

Life Mission of Wrappers
In some localities growers have
found it profitable to wrap certain
kinds of their fruits before packing.
Suitable paper of a light grade is usea
for this put pose, and if the stock is
fancy," each wrapper has printed on
it In fancy label bearing the name of
the brand, where and t v whom grown.
The cost of these wrappers is very
slight, and they pot only serve a a
means of advertising fancy produce.
but they Improve the appearance of
me wiioip pacKage.
Further than this, the use of wrap
per has a tendency to prolong the
keeping qualities of the fruit. One
or more peaches or apples in a pack
age may begin to rot. This condition
causes a liberation of moisture that,
unless checked, will spread and cause
decay to develop in other specimens.
When each fruit Is wrapped the paper
absorbs a certain amonnt of this
moisture, thus checking for a time
the spread of decay. Wrappers are
also an aid in keeping fruit firm and
snug iu the package.
When a man proclaims in aloud
volte that he Is a gentleman it's a safe
bet that he isn't.
One of our exchanges truthfully
says that when pa was young, people
who had bad colds, soaked their feet
in hot water and took a few draughts
of catnip and got well. Noy they
have lagripp take quinine' and feel
sick all ummer. Then they had sore
throat, wrapped a piece of bacon in
an old stocking, tied it around the
neck at night and went to work the
next day. Now they have tonsllitls,
a surgical operation, and two weeks
in a hospital. Then they had stom
ach trouble and took castor oil and
recovered. Now they have appeudi
citls, a week in the hospital and six
feet due east and west and six feet
perpendicular. Then they went to a
restaurant as boarders; and now they
go to the cafe as guests. Then they
broke a leg; and now they fracture a
limb. People went crazy; dow they
have brain storms or are born crazy
wedon't know which. Politicians
then paid good, hard cash for support
now they send government seeds In
stead. Yes, times have changed and
we all change with the times. That'
Will Warn Investors.
Orchard investment schemes which
hold out oilers of rewards in excess of
reason are to be placed under the ban
by the government, and In order to
protect those who are willing to part
with their money on these wildest
schemes warnings will be sent out
over the country stating the facts
and telling the people in the cities
who are looking toward the land to
hold onto their hard-earned dollars
uutll they are sure that tneir prospec
tlve purchase really has at least a part
of the merit that it claimed for It
by the promoters who are so anxious
to make a sale. These schemes in
clude western apple projects, Mexican
rubber plantations and banana farms
in the Central American countries.
These exteusiyely advertised lands
are heralded as sure money makers
and the profits that they are expected
to pay are so h'gh that any person of
ordinary intelligence would not take
asecoud thought about them when it
comes to risking money of any great
sum In them. In spite of these un
reasonable inducements that are held
out to catch the unwary and those
who are over anxious to pet rich by a
minimum amount of work, thousands
ot small investors are caught in the
net ana fleeced out of their saving.,
So numerous has this variety of easv
marks become that the government
finds it necessary to step In and take
their part by warning them of the
risks they run In taking a long chance
on some other man's game, especially
when he knows the game and the
purchaser has to play his end of it by
proxy through the medium of the pro
moter himself. It is a game that
works both wayt, but the two ways
always come together In the pocket
of the man who unloads the land upon
his unwary customer. It Is fortunate
that Uncle Sam takes such a fatherly
interest in hU citizens, but on t lie
other hand it is a sad commentary
upon the business genius of the public
to think tht it is so. incompetent
that paternalism of this character
has to be resorted to In order to keep
the dollars of citizens where they be
long. Traverse Record Herald. -
