It not only calls for the usual features of piano overture, il lustrated songs and motion pictures, which are brought thoroughly up to date every week, but in addition has einglng, danciing and character chang es, work by a farcial sketch team. blackface singing and talking and a turn by a real Indian princess and a cowboy entertainer.. It is apparent FAULTY FOOTBALL AOVICE IS GIVEN Many of the Football Folnters This Year Have Been of No Account. THE ABUSED CENTER RUSH MORE IMPORTANT THAN EVER BEFORE, HE HAS HAD A TRYING POSITION TO PLAY DURING THIS SEASON. MYSTERY IN A MURDER NEW YORK CASE UNSOLVED Woman Who Killed Gustave Simon Was Richly Gowned and Bejeweled and Had Over $50 in Bills in Her Possessions. EXPERT ON ANIMALS. --P1;' v . If-'! Av- & : (.Publishers' PreasJ By F. T. Football advice has been particularly plentiful this year. It has been cheap to be had for the asking. Consequent ly most of it has been expensive to those who followed it. Some econoi mists tell us that overproduction low era the quality, and this is very true when the commodity referred to is gridiron advice. A score or so of the gratuitous foot ball "experts" that I have heard dis coursing to players this year would have been tied to a ton of bricks and thrown Into the Nile to poison the lit tle crocodiles had they lived In Egypt a few centuries ago. Those old Egyp tians were great football sharps. They originated the great '"pyramid forma tion, a mass play par excellence. Some particularly faulty advice has been handed out to the center rushes Princess Chinquille at the New Phil lips this week. at a glance that the patrons of the house will not be troubled with any "chestnuts" when they go to the New Phillips this week. Special interest centers In the work of Princess Chin quille, Indian, who is one of the oddi ties of the vaudeville stage and who has for a considerable time been a fea ture of the various circuits of the country. Her press notices elsewhere are of the mst flattering nature and her work here substantiates them. A good likeness of the Princess is run in connection with this notice. Souve nirs will be given at the matinee to day, and on Saturday afternoon there will be a special performance for the children. On Saturday night a dou ble bill will be presented in order to accommodate those who cannot reach the house in time for the first perform ance. Murray Comedy Company Gennett. ' until -the- tact became actually es tablished through newspaper notices and verbal reports, the puolic was loath to believe that the Murray Com edy Company, now playing! a week's engagement at the Gennett, really has all. that is claimed for it not on ly a first rate reportoire company, but in addition a complete vaudeville bill, making an unequalled combination at popular prices. Astonishment has been exppressed by patrons of the house that the Murray Company can afford to give so much for the money, but this is one thing upon which the management of the company express ly prides himself; that is making its attractions ahead of anything else of the kind on tour. The matinee today will be "Indiana Folks" and tonight "A Convicts Wife' will be presented. It is probable that for the remainder of the week the bills will be as fol lows: Thursday matinee, "Nature's Nobleman," Thursday night, "A Country Courtship;" Friday matinee, A Country Courtship;" Friday night, "Dora Thome;" Saturday matinee, "Foxy Grandpa" and Saturday night "The Texan." Special attention is called to the fact that admission to the matinees is but ten cents to all parts of the house. The specialties alone are well worth more than this sum and the same is true of the ight prices. Last night the coipany made a very satisfactory presentation of "In diana Folks," a companion piece to "Shore Acres," and made a change in the specialties. NO. 1. OSLT CORRECT WAY FOR CKNTEB TO BOLD BALL WHEN SNAPPIXO BACK. (nothing to do with the rushes on the Nile that sheltered Moses from oppos ing tacklers), and, owing to a general misconception as to some phases of center play, it would seem that an ac curate explanation would not go amiss at this time. The important effect of the new rules on the work of the center rush is to make extreme care necessary in his mode of handling the ball preparatory to and during the "snapping back." The ball must be held absolutely straight at right angles to the scrim mage line, and it is not permissible to raise either end materially from the ground before it is snapped back. In illustration No. 2 four incorrect modes of snapping back the ball are shown. A careful study of these illus trations will repay any center man. Now that there is a xlearly defined Interval between the two rush lines in scrimmage formation the troubles of the center rush are materially decreas ed. Clearly he is now one of the favor ites of the rules committee. This Is only right, as for years the poor abused snapper back has been the most an noyed and pestered man in the lineup. The opposing two guards and center have always in the past considered the snapper back their legitimate prey, TYPHOID INFECTION. Play an Important Part Car rirrs of Dlnraie, R. G. Eccles declare, in Medical Record, that there Is no reasonable room to doubt that the development of typhoid fever is connected with the use of infected water; but that typhoid fever results from the drinking of in fected water is quite a different propo sition. lie then emphasizes the important part which flies play iu carrying dis ease germs to food.

It is easy to see how food may multiply disease germs to the danger point, but it is not evident bow any person could take the disease from water that thousands are driuk Ing without the slightest Injury. Typhoid germs injure by their toxin "When these germs get into food there Is practically no limit to the poison that they are able to produce if the condi tions are favorable. The writer then goes Into various phases of this ques tion. He considers water, dust and forultes es mere seed sowers. Food is the disease breeder. In the late war the Japanese lost only one-sixth as many from typhoid fever and dysen- tery es did the Russians.

' Publishers' PressJ New Yoik, Nov. 20. Back of the murder of Gustave Simon, a million aire waist manufacturer, there is be lived to be a mystery. A woman em ploy accused of the murder gave her name at police headquarters as Mme. Anisia Louisie de Massy, widow of a French baron and friend of Count Boni de Castellane, her maiden name being Vernon. She declares she is In nocent. It is claimed by sons of Simon that the cause of the murder was the frenzied pique of an excitable French woman at not receiving $30 in wages at the time she desired. The police, however, learned from the wo man that her husband was mysteri ously killed a number of years ago, and that she came to seek revenge. It is their belief that in a frenzy she mistakenly attacked Simon for the man she sought as the assassin of her husband. When arrested she was richly gowned and bejeweled and had over $50 in bills in her possessions. Contest Sherwood's Election. Colunabu3, O., Nov. 20. E. G.

Animals have been his passion from childhood. He was born fifty-two years ago In Indiana, snd a portion of his youth was spent In Iowa. In the days of his boyhood wild animals were to be met with In these states much more often than now. He and his brothers were good sportsmen, and he roamed the forests at will, studied about animals at college and determined to devote his life to re searches as a naturalist. He was em ployed for some time by a concern en gaged In supplying animals to muse ums and zoological gardens and has traveled extensively. He has faced death many times in the course of his adventures. One of his most thrilling experiences was with a big female ele phant in an Indian forest. He came upon a herd which included this fe male and her calf, about three feet high.
