The moat f.turendous production c t its kind In America, "The Sleeping Beauty fill ths Beast," presented r.t the Gennett, today matinee and niht and from ilin outlook, large business is assur.-?3. Ibis piece hit the popu lar fancy from the start jnd its suc cess has mow than fulfilled expecta tions. Its irury beautiful scenes pre sented wuh z wealth of gorgeous cos tumes, novel c'tctrlcal h-v! cnUium effects, unique mechanical surprises have proven a revelation in stage tri umphs. From the time the curtain rises, until Its final fall, the audi ence is given a glimpse of fairyland while the everchanging and varied scenes make a panorama of indescri bable beauty. The great scene of the piece and which has created a sen sation, is the fourth scene in the sec ond act, entitled "Beauty's Awaken ing, " a Dream of the Year," in which the ballet of the 'Four Seasons" are presented. The flight of these beau tiful young girls is bewildering srd mystifying 'and makes a novel finale to this great scene. In which are also introduced the corps de ballet and the entire company, numbering over two hundred people. Aside from the spectacular phases, "The Sleeping Beauty and the Beast" is a bright novel and pleasing entertainment, full of surprises, laughable situations good comedy, sweet and catchy music and excellent specialties. The com edy roles are in the hands of well known artists who are supported by a host of pretty girls. "The Black Crook" Gennett. Robert Mack, the comedian of the At the Gennett this Afternoon inrifTTFlF1! 1 ) ' mil i 0 vv a J I U f eI'; 'i IJtajVK-i-lal. if! ir-r-, $P Scene from 'The Beauty and Scene from "The Black Crook" "Black Crook" company to be seen at the Gennett, next Monday night is or rather was a dog fancier until a few days ago. It came about in ths way. He fell in love with and pur chased a likely looking bull pup some weeks aco. which he set about to teach cute things. Among these was the act of sitting up and speaking at his master's command. The dog accompanied his master to and from the theatre, but not being old enough to appreciate talent he usually spent his time at the theatre asleep in Mr. Mack's dressing room. One evening, however, he became restless and dur ing the third act wandered Into the wings. All went well until the heavy part of the scene came where the hero, heroine and villain get into a wordy war, the villian making some 'sassy" remarks about the leading lady who Is commanded by the hero to resent them. Mr. Mack's lines go something like this: "I command you to speak, speak." when Mr. bull dog, who was watching the action of the play, heard the word "speak" coming from his master, he thought it was his cue, and at once dashed on to the stage, assumed a sitting posture and proceeded to bark long and lour. There was a pause, then a roar of laughter from the audience and a wild dash by Mr. Mack and the dog. After a few minutes matters quieted down and the play proceeded. Since then, however, Mr. Bull Dog spends his evenings on the end of a strong chain attached to his master's biggest trunk. "Denver Express" Gennett. "The Denver Express" is said to be one of the few sensational comedy dramas that pleases the ladies and children as well as the gallery gods, because, though it is boisterous in merriment, yet it is refined in sen sation, pure in tone and spontaneous in action. There is plenty of the comedy element in the piece, and the plot contains a beautiful love story. Many realistic mechanical effects are used, including an engine and train of cars. "Denver Express" will be seen at the Gennett next Wednesday night, Thursday afternoon and Thurs day night. "Nobody's Claim." Gennett. From the time she shoots down the W. U. Telegraph wire to stop the sending of a message and save a friend, till we find her alone and nearly dead across her father's grave in a blinding snow storm in a moun tain pnss, the latter when she appears at the out-law headquarters just in time to save Ward Devereaux from the angry flames and later when on the black charger, she with an Am erican flag heads the U. S. cavalry in a successful battle with the outlaws, little Madge, the waif of the hills and heroine of "Nobody's Claim" finds a soft spot in our affections and makes a lasting impression on us. She will be at the Gennett. on next Thursday night.

THEY HAVE HONEYCOMBED THE FLOORS IN THE HOOF STOR AGE HOUSES AND EATEN INSU LATION OFF WIRES. IPublishers Press.j Chicago, jan. IS. Electrical engi neers and fire underwriters interested in' the Union stockyards are alarmed over the advent of unidentified larvae swarming certain sections of the pack ing plants and feeding on lead pipe insulation of electric wires. These brown, hairy little wigglers, each five-eights of an inch long, move through "hoof" houses at the yards, gnaw irregular patches of lead, often cutting through the cloth and rubber insulation and short circuiting the electric current. Holes an inch Ions and half an inch wide have been cut through one-tenth inch thicuness oi" lead pipe. "The lead pipe cinch" bug Is the designation given the creature by Di rector Fred -J. V. Skiff of the Field Columbian museum, in whose entomo logical laboratory this little lead eater is under observation. It is in the "hoof" house at the yards that the creature appeared in millions. These houses are for the storage of hoofs under process toward glue manufacture. In these houses the floors are of wood three or four inches thick, yet this hairy worm has honeycombed them in its search for lead pipe. So great have been the ravages of these larvae upon the lead insulation in the hoof houses that new installa tions of electric wires are being con ducted in gas pipe protections. Some of the floors of the houses are so bored and weakened that cement will have to take the place of the wood.

WOULD AVOID A TRIAL Ohio Official Charged with Corruption Sets Forth That Indictment Is Faulty. Publishers Press. Columbus, O., Jan. 18. John W. Johnson, state supervisor of public printing, indicted on charge of attempt ing to corruptly influence the circuit court to decide in his favor the ouster suit filed by Mark Slater, former state printer, filed a demurrer to the indict ment. He alleges four technical grounds why he should not be brought to trial.

Been Spent Perfecting Liquozone. Will Have Even when Liquozone was new the results were astounding. It seemed almost incredible that anything could do, in difficult cases, what this pro duct did. But five years of experience, with millions of users, have done a greet deal to perfect it. The product has been studied by many physicians and chemists, including some of tne world's highest authorities. As a re suit, better standards have been evol ved and adopted.. Millions know from experience what the old product Jid. Will you learn now the power of the new? What Liquozone Is. Liquozone is a tomc-germicide, the virtues of which are derived solely from oxide gases. No alcohol, no ucr cotic, nothing but gas enters into it. The process of making requires la-g? apparatus, and consumes 14 days' time. Tne object is to so combine the gases with a liquid as to carry their virtues into the system. The result is a germicide so cer- tain that we publish with every bottle an offer of $ 1,000 for a disease germ that Liquozone cannot kill. It des troys them because germs are of veg etable origin. But to the body Liquo zone is exhilirating, vitalizing, puri fying. That is its main distinction. Com mon germicides are poisons when ta- kea internally. They axe impossible, iffl ENWETT THEATRE...

Publishers Press.! Washington, Jan. 18. The TTnTted States began two suits In San Fran cisco for the purpose of enforcing pro visions of the treaty with Japan giv ing to Japanese equal school ad vantages. One of the actions is brought In the supreme court of the state of Cali fornia in the name of a Japanese child for the purpose of obtaining a writ of mandamus to compel his admission to one of the public schools from which he is excluded by the action of the boajd of education. The proceeding in the second suit is a bill In equity filed by the United States in the federal circuit court in which members of the board of educa tion, the superintendent of schools, and all of 1he principals of the various primary and grammar schools of San Francisco are made defendants. for they destroy the tissues as well as the germs. That is why medicine proves so helpless in dealing with germ diseases. Liquozone, on the contrary, acts' as a remarkable tonic. We Paid $100,000. For the rights to Liquizone, after thousands of tests had been made with it, after its power had been dem onstrated for more than two years in the most difficult germ diseases. Con ditions which had resisted medicine for years yielded at once to it. and diseases considered incurable were cured. That was five years ago. Since then millions of people in every part of the world have shared in the benefits of this invention. Nearly every ham let, every neighborhood, has living examples of its power. Now we ask you to let it do for you what it did for them.. Germ Diseases. Most of our sickness has. in lit 9 years, been traced to germ attacks. Some germs as in skin troubles directly attack the tissues. Some cre ate toxins, causing such troubles as Rheumatism, Blood Poison, Kidney Disease and nerve weakness. Some destroy vital organs, as in Consump tion., Some like the germs of Ca tarrh create inflammation; some cause indigestion. In one of these ways, nearly every serious aliment is a germ result. : the Drury Lane spectacle, Ira Swishar Manager r. Ed Massle Xcttfe European equillibrlsfs and Jugglers Supreme. G.
