The Vaudeville at the Crnnd.
Fanny Rice, one of the few genuine
comediennes, still uses thr cabinet Illusion
that was the principal feature of "At the
French Rail." but it is new in the vaudeville
theaters and always has been clever. At
the Grand this week she has the stage
draped with purple velvet. The cabinet is
carried down to the footlights, and
Miss Rice appears in a frame studded
with electric lights. Her face surmounts
a small, dummy body and she has four
change?. Her songs are bright, and she
sings them piquantly. In contrast is the
opening of her entertainment. Alice Beach
McComas, a pianist of ability, plays a solo
and then an accompaniment to a recitation
by Miss Rice. At the back of the stage Is
revealed a big picture of a Roman arena,
with a lion advancing on a group of Chris
tians. The poem is of the "Quo Vadls,"
"Sign of the Cross" nature. It tells of a
Christian maiden that was thrown to the
lions. Her lover was a Roman, and an she
stood In the arena he tossed a rose to her.
She put the rose In her hair, and met death
bravely. At night her lover entered the
arena, and, searching among the mangled
bodies, found the rose and some fragments
of his sweet heart'.o dress. Her martyrdom
converted him to Christianity, and on the
next festal day he stood before the lions,
and In his hand was a withered rose. Miss
Rice tells her audience that she obtained
the poem In Europe. It might have been
better written almost anywhere else. It 13
as out of place in a vaudeville theater as
are the so-called sacred songs.
Jeanette Melville and Evie Stetson are as
pleasing as Miss Rice in her cabinet. Their
work always has an Individuality. Their
songs and dialogues are smart and their
style intelligent They know how to bur
lesque In the sparkling manner that has
made the fortune of the Weber & Fields
stock company. Their gowns are elaborate.
Margaret Scott pleases better than any
other woman singer that the Grand has
had this season. She has not the spirit of
the soprano member of the Troubadour
Toulousians. in last week's bill, but she
sustains high notes and exercises her voice
with an ease that shows careful training,
and thus wins a great deal of applause.
Vaudeville needs many more singers like
her. and is slowly getting them. They are
crowding out the clumsy, unschooled "lady
vocalists" that entered the vaudeville the
aters by way of the variety houses.
Hale and Francis show a list of Indian
club and hoop-rolling tricks, most of which
are not exceptional, but the man of the
anclng. An Indian club is laid on the stage
pair has developed a new idea In b4ll bal
and the man mounts a ball. He pretends
to have great difficulty in staying on the
ball and picking up the club. He gets
down on his hands and knees and works
desperately. Once he falls and the ball
rolls over him. but he comes out on top.
The trick is comic, and would seem unpre
pared were It not that the orchestra plays
"After the Ball Is Over" and other sugges
Cole and Delosse have an unusual slack
wire act, to which they have added comedy
that Is not bad. One of the men takes the
other on his back and then balances on his
hands on the slender wire He also rides
a bicycle on the wire.
James W. Rome and Marguerite Fergu
son have an exasperating Jumble which
they they call "Mr. Flotz. the Floorwalk
er." They seem able to sing and dance,
and they should not try comedy, or, If they
must act. they should employ some one to
write a reasonable sketch for thfm. A
quartet of colored men In evening dress
sing ballads and rag time. The blograph
has new pictures.
The bill as a whole shows how much of
interest can be made by the industrious
and intelligent persons that are not "head
liners." Asjde from Miss Rice the players
are not conspicuous and neither are they
castaways from the "legitimate." They
give one of the best entertainments of the
season at the Grand.
'Rudolph and Adolph at the Park.
Charles A. and Dan -Mason, experienced
German comedians, now together at the
head of a company for the first time, pre
sent a farce, "Rudolph and Adolph," by
Charles Newman, at the Park Theater.
They have begun their starring auspicious
ly, for they and their assistants are clever,
and the play Is a smart rendering of an
old, ever-funny theme. Rudolph and Adolph
Dlnkelsplel, brothers, are so alike that
their friends, and not even their wives,
can tell them apart. Their resemblance
makes trouble for them and fun for the
onlookers. Adolph Is a ladles' tailor and
Rudolph is a horse doctor, and the vari
ance of their occupations causes still
further embarrassing complications.
The farce Is well acted and the members
of the company contribute songs and
dances. Nellie Maskell neatly character
izes an Irish cook "too respectable to live
in a house where a man has two wives
and there is a play-actress." The play
actress Is Lottie Williams-Salter, and she
has the right spirit in singing two care-
fully-wrltten coster songs. " 'E Didn't Seem
to Know Just what to Say" and "I'm a
Respectable Working Girl." She also has
a song. "So Much Depends on Knowing
Just how Far a Girl Should Go," with the
Masons. The principal comedians have
some parodies, the Misses Laurence dance
and Beatrice McKenzie and Lew H. New
comb sing and dance.
The three acts show a room In Rudolph
Dinkelspiel's flat and his brother's ladles
tailoring shop. The company's engagement
is for three days, and it will be followed
on Thursday by the Nichols sisters, in an
other farce, "Papa's Baby."
Variety at the Empire.
X novelty in bicycle racing was given
yesterday for the first time in this city
in the show of the Merry Maidens' Bur
lesque Company at the Empire Theater.
Three riders Leonard Wilson, John Law
son, who is called "The Terrible Swede,"
and Nick Howard race around a track
which has a slant of seventy-two degrees
and Is only ten feet In diameter at the bot
tom. The track is made of oak flats tight
ly put together with iron girders. The
slats are arranged in sections, and when
placed together resemble a large bowl.
Howard, who gained a reputation as a
"dar devil" rider by riding down the steps
of the Capitol, in Washington, does a num
ber of tricks. In ridlr.s: around the track he
looks as though he is Hying horizontally.
Lawson and Leonard have a match race of
the Australian pursuit style. When the
three riders get on the small track, two go
ing in one direction and the other in the
opposite, the exhibition almost shatters
one's nerves. One of the riders is forced to
the top of the slats, and he rides with great
skill within a few inches of the top.
Another feature of the show, which is a
novelty, is the work of Harry Seeback as
a bag puncher. With the regulation single
bag attached to a platform he performs a
number of tricks. He then fastens another
bag a few inches from .the floor of the
stHge, and. with the aid of his hands and
knees, keeps time to a lively tune played
by the orchestra. He also has another bag
supported from a horizontal bar, and this,
by the swing of the arm. Is forced around,
making a complete circle.
The olio of the show Is opened with a
number of new imitations by Fialkouska.
The Revere Sisters do lightening changes
in costumes. Leo and Chapman retain their
The show commences with a burlesque
entitled "The Merry Maidens Trolley Par
ty," in which a number of good songs are
rendered by a big chorus. Nellie Hanly
sings "When the Roses Bloom Again." as
sisttd by the chorus. In the list burlesque
also a number of songs are given. The
show will remain all week.

There was a small wreck on the Big Four
at Lawrence at 5 o'clock yesterday after
noon, caused by a sand car on second

New Orleans Times-Democrat.
"It would surprise you to know that a
heavy percentage of the persons who travel
on sleeping cars make no effort to dis
robe before retiring." said a conductor who
runs between New Orleans and Chicago.
"They simply roh In with boots, spurs and
all. They do not seem to know that a
berth on a sleeping car is not different
from a bed in a private home except in
size. Some of them will pull off their coats
ar.d collars. Some of them will slip their
shoes from ' their feet. There are many,
of course, who are used to traveling, and
ho go in for a good night's sleep. But
the fiMows who sleep with their shoes on
do not gain anything by it. The fact is,
they probably lose by the game. They,
at least, make one enemy, and his good
will is sometimes worth having. I am
speaking of the autocrat of the sleeping
car. the porter. The fellow who falls to
take his shoes off and shove them under
the berth where the porter can get them
and polish them at the rate of 25 cents
per polish makes an enemy of the porter.
With women it is different. You can never
catch a woman so indifferent to comfort
and cleanliness In this respect. She will
p;i?t her shoes off every time. The fact
is, she seems to know more about travel
ing methods than the average man. She
gets along better, and seems to know
things intuitively. But the men are indif
ferent In many Instances, and I guess in
others they are simply green,"
THE AUTO SHOW OPENED
HAZARDOUS TEST OF INCLINE
CHEERED BY CROWD.
Anderson Men Came to the CItr by
RoadMian Von Olson Begins Her
Long Hide Varied Exhibits.
The first annual automobile and bicycle
show v opened at the Cyclorama building
last night. While the formal opening of
the show will not be held until this even
ing, a large crowd of men and women vis
ited the show last night. The building has
been converted Into a handsomely deco
rated hall where samples of nearly every
machine manufactured In this country is
on exhibition. There are all styles of car
riages and wagons propelled by steam, gas
oline, electricity, hydrocarbon, etc., to be
seen in addition to a large number of bi
cycles and the accessories that enter into
The decorations of the various booths are
unique. All of the booths are handsomely
set apart In glowing but harmonious col
ors, and inside the railings the spectators
are met by representatives of some of the
largest manufacturing concerns in the
country, who are anxious to introduce
them into the intricacies of the automobile
business. Smt.ll souvenirs are given away
by many of the exhibitors, and prospective
purchasers are given more attention than
an American heiress by foreign noblemen.
An Indiana made machine that will be
exhibited during th week was brought
to the show j'esterday by J. W. and S. W.
Lambert, of Anderson, representing the
Union Automobile Company, of Union City.
They drove the machine from Anderson to
this city In one hour and fifty minutes. J.
W. Lambert said the roads from Anderson
to McCordsvllle were In bad condition, but
from McCordsvllle to Indianapolis the roads
were in good shape. The only stop was
made at McCordsvllle. The machine is a
1902 model designed for the Union City
company by Mr. Lambert. Its power is
hydrocarbon and it is built for two or
four persons. The only mishap encoun
tered was the twisting of the front axle,
caused by turning Into a ditch in passing
a wagon en route, but this was not no
ticed until the machine was brought Into
TEST OF THE INCLINE.
The test of the incline was made be
fore the public for the first time last even
ing. The Toledo steam wagon manufac
tured at Toledo was driven to the top of
the steep incline by G. W. Soules, super
intendent of the testing department at the
Toledo factory. When the machine reached
the top the crowd cheered, for it was a
hazardous undertaking. The descent was
even more dangerous, but the machine was
brought to the floor without an accident.
The managers of the show have provided
every precaution to prevent a machine
from crashing to the floor below should
anything happen to the automobile. Sev
eral tests were also made on the incline
by bicycle riders. The average time to
climb the Incline by wheelmen was ten
seconds. In the center of the floor is
erected the platform for the exhibition by
Miss Von Olson on a home training ma
chine. The bicycle is so arranged that
there is the same resistance as there would
be by riding on a track. She will ride dur
ing the entire week one hour each after
noon from 3 to 4 and an hour each evening
from 9 to 10. To make this feature of the
programme more interesting the managers
of the show have offered a bicycle to the
person making the closest guess on the
number of rods Miss Von Olson will ride
during her exhibition. A cyclometer is at
tached to the wheel and when she dis
mounts on the last night it will be in
spected by a committee of three. Each
person entering the show is entitled to
make a guess.
When the show Is formally opened this
evening the capacity of the hall will no
doubt be taxed. The band concerts will be
gin this evening and all the extra attrac
tions will be given. The show will con
tinue throughout the week.
WANT RIGID DIVORCE LAWS.
Influential Chlcaaroans Send a Peti
tion to Senator Cullom.
CHICAGO, Feb. 17.-Nine of the wealthi
est and most Influential citizens of Chi
cago have sent to the Senate of the United
States through Senator Cullora a petition
asking for uniform and more rigid di
vorce laws in all the States of the Union.
The names signed to the petition are A. A.
Sprague, Marshall Field, Robert T. Lin
coln, John C. Welling, Cyrus H. McCor
mlck, A. C. Bartlett, Clarence Bucking
ham, George Grosscup and F. S. Winston.
The aim, it is said, is to secure statistics
covering the period between 1S87 and the
present time. No figures are at hand which
show the number of divorces granted dur
ing that period and for what causes. The
sense of the present petition is to secure
some action on the part of the Senate so
that an appropriation may be made for the
purpose of compiling such statistics.
BLIZZARD IN EAST.

preceded the snow, and the wind blew at
a velocity of more than sixty miles an hour.
HEAVIEST IX THREE YEARS.
Seventeen Inches of Snovr and n Thlr-ty-Foar-MIIe-an-IIour
PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 17. The heavy
snowstorm which began in this section at
10 o'clock last night ceased at 5 o'clock
this afternoon, the fall of snow being the
heaviest in three years. A high wind ac
companied the snow, but to-night the wind
is rapidly diminishing. The greatest fall
of snow occurred at Atlantic City, which
was the center of the storm this morning.
The weather bureau there reports that
seventeen inches fell and that the maxi
mum velocity of the wind was thirty-four
miles. Cape May reported a snowfall of
eight Inches. In this city eleven Inches
of snow were recorded at the weather
bureau, and in the interior of Pennsylvania
snow fell In depths varying from one to
six Inches. Snow was reported to be fall
ing to-night In the northeastern moun
tainous section of the State.
With the exception of the stranding of
the schooner Anna Murray, from Boston
for Baltimore, near Indian River inlet, ten
miles below the Delaware breakwater, the
life-saving stations from Chincotcague,
Va., to Barnegat, N. J., report to-nieht
that there are no vessels In distress. The
Murray went ashore during the thickest
of the storm this morning, and her crew
was rescued by life savers by means of the
breeches buoy. The vessel is badly stialned
and is full of water.
The steam railroads centering in this city
were considerably hampered. Trains were
greatly delayed, and in some instances an
nulled. The greatest difficulty was expe
rienced within the city limits and on the
lines leading to New York and the se a
shore. Trains to the west and south fron)
here had comparatively little trouble, and
trains arriving from those sections main
tained the schedule fairly well. On the
Pennsylvania Railroad trains from New
York were from one to two hours late. This
was due to trouble experienced In moving
trains in the Jersey City terminal and
yards The Washington limited and the
fast line west were annulled over the New
York division. They were made up here
and took their departure south and west
only a short time behind the schedule. The
Pennsylvania limited, west-bound, due hero
from New York at 12:13, p. m.. arrived at
2:12 p. m. The Reading road fared better
with its New York trains, which arrived
about an hour late. On all the railroad."
much dliaculty was encountered In moving
suburtin trains. The schedules early in
the day became badly tangled, compelling
the companies to consolidate many of their
trains. Railroad communication between
here and Atlantic City was tied up for a
time, and when trains did get moving they
were from two to three hours late. The
entire railroad situation is greatly im
Navigation on the Delaware river and
bay between here and the sea was only
slightly interfered with. Thick ice has
greatly Impeded the progress of vessels dur
ing the last week, but the situation in this
regard was reported to be greatly Improved
by the captains of the Philadelphia city
Street car traffic in this city and the
suburbs became demoralized early in the
day and no attempt was made to keep
schedule time. Some lines were blocked
for hours, but with the ending of the
storm traffic began to Improve, and by
morning it is expected the service will be
IX MTW JERSEY.
Schools Suspended and Travelers t'n
nble to Reach Their Homes.
NEW YORK, Feb. 17. Advices received
to-night from points in New Jersey show
that the great blizzard has been felt from
Bergen county to Cape May and from At
lantic City to Camden. The latest advices
are that during the evening the storm
abated considerably, the snow having
ceased to fall and the wind having de
creased in velocity. As was natural, the
brunt of the gale, which approached the
dimensions of a hurricane, was felt by
the seacoast towns, but the Interior cities
and townships did not escape. Travel by
roads was almost Impossible, the railroads
were enabled to move trains only by the
free use of snow plows, and street-car
traffic all over the State was stopped until
the sweeping machines and plows cleared
the tracks, about the middle of the after
noon. This applies to the iarge cities only,
for in the smaller places the tracks are so
badly covered with snow that they may
not be cleared for two days.
There was a general suspension of the
schools in the afternoon, while thj morn
ing sessions were only thinly attended. At
most places heard from notices were given
that there would be no attempt to hold
school to-morrow. Several trains were
stalled near Bound Brook for some hours,
but were released late in the afternoon.
Trains from New York reached Bound
Brook from two to three hours late, and
these with two engines attached. By night
the situation was much improved, and pas
senger traffic on all trunk lines crossing
the State were coming in only thirty min
The thousands of people who make their
homes In the cities, towns and villages of
New Jersey lying within twenty miles of
New York city, and who are In business cr
work here, suffered great Inconvenience in
the morning. For hours the North river
ferries ran Irregularly and with small loads,
all the morning trains being late. Then, as
the delayed trains began to arrive, there
was a rush of passengers. Many people,
however, found It more convenient to stay
at home, and the usual crowd of shoppers
from Jersey was not to be seen to-day.
By evening the situation for subuibanttes
was much relieved.
Suburbanites Snowed In.
ATLANTIC CITY, N. J., Feb. 17. On of
the most severe snowstorms since 1SSS, the
year of the great blizzard, struck this coast
early this morning, and by evening, when
the snowfall ceased, nearly twenty Inches
of snow had fallen. There was no great
damage done, nor have any wrecks been
reported. Residents living in the suburbs
cannot get to town. On the Boardwalk
two horse snow plows are at work pre
paring a pathway for the lenten crowd of
visitors that began to arrive yesterday.

BOSTON, Feb. 17. After an unprece

PAINE'S CELERY COMPOUN
Makes Nerve Fibre and Nerve Force, Cleanses
the Blood and Strengthens and Gives Tone
to Every Function of the Body.
"As a medicine for doing immediate and
effective work in sickness, resulting from
impaired nerves and Impure blood, my
family considers your Palne's Celery Com
pound without a peer." It strengthens and
gives tone to the system." "It has saved
many a doctor's bill."
So writes J. J. Donahue, chief of police
of Omaha, to the proprietors of this never
falling remedy. Palne's Celery' Compound
makes nerve fiber and nerve force, and im
parts true health to body and brain. It Is
the only known positive cure for nervous
prostration, resulting from business re
sponsibilities, irregular habits and over
work. Palne's Celery Compound is the one great
remedy for dyspepsia and weak nerves.
Dyspepsia Is caused by acute Inflammation
of the nerves centered about the stomach.
Palpitation of the heart, dlzriness, cardi
algta and distention of the stomach are
common in dyspepsia. Languor and irre
sistible drowsiness are certain symptoms.
Palne's Celery Compound keeps the mus
cular walls of the stomach in vigorous, ac
tion until the process of digestion Is made
complete. It restores energy, gives renewed
vigor to all affected parts, checks dizziness
and allays heartburn. It Is a safe and re
liable cure for nervous dyspepsia.
Palne's Celery Compound will build up
weakened and Inflamed nerves, keep the
stomach, liver and kidneys In healthy ac
tion, and make mind and body healthy. It
Is the greatest reconstructant of the nerv
ous system known to medical science. It
permanently cures nervous exhauetion. It
Is particularly efficacious In all cases where
the afflicted are "worn out" and "run

to give the nerves and blood the food that
nature require. Palne's Celery Compound
Is rightly called nature's medicine. Medi

At the strikers' meeting held here yester

MADRID, Feb. 17. It is estimated that
40,000 men have struck at Barcelona, and
serious rioting Is reported there to-day.
The mob attempted to sack the market
buildings, and stopped all street traffic.
The factories and shops in the city have
been closed. Groups of women bearing ban
ners are taking a prominent part in the
disturbances. Several battalions of troops
are clearing the streets.
In the Chamber this afternoon General
Castelanos taxed the government with lack
of energy in dealing with the Barcelona
rioters. Replying, Senor Gonzales, minister
of the interior, said that the prefect of
Barcelona was not able to send a police
commissary to each of the seventy-two
simultaneous strikers' meetings in that
city. After further explanations Senor

streets. There were several clashes with
the troops, continues the correspondent,
and the cavalry finally charged, clearing
the streets. The city was on the verge of

New York Commercial Advertiser.
Once more England is following the good
example set by this country. More or less
criticism has been directed at our Navy
Department on account of the method used
In naming our new warships, the complaint
being that by giving them exclusively the
names of States, cities and towns, with the
exception of the Kearsarge. all the hon
ored names of our ships of the past are dis
appearing from the roll. England has been
pointed to as setting a worthy example Ly
never allowing the name of a ship once in
the navy to disappear, whether the original
was British built or was captured from th
enemy. The reply to this has always been
that, while It was an excellent idea to pre
serve the sentiment of the past, it was still
more excellent to give the people of the
country a, so to say, personal interest In the
warships by naming them after the States
and cities. It is an undoubted fact that the
citizens of Kentucky, for example, take
more Interest In the Kentucky battleship
than If she were the President, Constel
lation or Essex. In memory of proud ves
sels of the past, or Guerrlere or Mace
donian, in memory of the ships that were
defeated by our own. The wisdom of this
plan has appealed to the British Admiralty,
and one of the newest and most powerful
cruisers is named the Kent, in honor of
the county which played so mighty a part
in the destruction of the Armada. The
peoole of Kent, like the people in similar
cases in this country, have conceived a
great Interest in the new ship, and are
already discussing th gift they shall make
to her. A new battleship will be the
London, and fifteen other cruisers are
building which will carry the names of as
many counties. The high-flown, mytho
logical nomenclature began because one
first lord of the admiralty prided himself
on his classical learning, and while Aga
memnon. Bellona, Jupiter and the like are
mouth-filling names, they are heardly ap
propriate to British men-of-war.
Spain Holds No Mallee.
It now seems as good ad certain that
before the winter Is over we shall have a
new treaty of friendship with Spain. The
Duke of Almodovar and our Mr. Bellamy
StoreT have been at work on It, and the
dispatches say it is nearly ready for sig
nature. Mention Is made of a cla.ua la the
V -er i " J
ly their work, allays indigestion and gives
tone to the whole system.
The remarkable Increase In the demand
for Palne's Celery Compound In the last
few years is due to the one fact that every
person who has ever tried a single bottle
of this greatest of restoratives lias found,
that the remedy accomplishes what no
other remedy Joes. It accomplishes all
that Is claimed for it. A sample trial will
convince the reader.
