PARK "Her .Marriage Vow," 2 and 8 P EMPIRE-Variety, 2 and 8 p. m. Cellar's Illusion mt English's. The magician, Kellar, gave his entertain ment at English's Opera House last even ing, showing several new illusions besides most of those that he had made known in past seasons. In the first part he displayed his skill In sleight of hand, changing the colors of handkerchiefs, shooting rings from a pistol into a locked box and pre senting them to their owners on the stems of cut roses, and at the close he caused a globe to roll up or down on a narrow In clined plane as he ordered and apparently without assistance. Another new trick was done with a lamp, at which he shot after covering It with a cloth through which the light plainly shone causing it to disappear and the cloth to collapse to the glass table on which the lamp had stood. The larger illusions, mechanically accom plished, consisted In the suspension of a girl in the air, a hoop being passed around her as a test; "How to Get Rid of a Wife." the disappearance of a young; woman sit ting in a chair elevated to mid-air by a windlass and scaffold; the Hindoo clock, made of a plate of glass and one hand. Which announced the week-day of dates called out by the spectators; the projection of a girl Invisibly through the air from one cabinet to another, both suspended from the filet. A mysterious agent in a small cabinet directed a hand of euchre played in the audience. A young woman, a mind reader, calculated the cubes of numbers that seemed not to be communicated to her, and gave the numbers of paper money without her seeing the bills. Kellar con ducted the entertainment with his regular skill, ease, alacrity and blandness. and his patrons were mystified, diverted and admir ing. The performance will be repeated on this and to-morrow evenings and to-morrow afternoon. Preparations for Ben-Hnr." The sale of seats for the nineteen per formances of "Ben-Hur," to be given at English's, during the two weeks following this, began yesterday morning, and until evening there was a line of buyers from the box-office window to varying distances on the sidewalk. James Jay Brady, the representative of Messrs. Klaw & Er langer, said it was the J-rgest first-day sale that "Ben-Hur" had had in this coun try. The sales were well scattered through the two weeks, and the average of rows sold on the ground floor was nine. The balcony was practically sold out. There are. of course, many good seats behind the ninth row. especially as Ben-Hur" is principally spectacular. Five of the nine teen performances will be matinees, two THE LIFE OF The Man Behind the Desk. "Coffee soaked me hard for about three years and I was troubled with indigestion, headaches and drowsiness; I had no appe tite and could not sleep and I was steadily losing flesh all the time. '"I had spent a small fortune on medi cine and doctors" bills; I consulted several doctors, one told me that I had liver trouble, another told me that I had kidney trouble, others prescribed remedies for numerous complaints, but none helped me and I Anally looked upon my bad stomach as a part of my miserable existence, giving up all hope of ever being myself again. "I knew that the caue of it was all due to office work, which precluded sufficient bodily exercise and the eating of nonnour lshlng and nondigestlve food, and the drinking of tea and cff e. I had to quit n j work as I lost my mental and and physical strength. "A friend of mine, who weighs about IM lbs. and who looks the picture of health advised me to use Grape-Nuts as a food and drink Postum Cereal Coffee. He said that his perfect health was due to the use of these two pure cereals. He said that they would build up the delicate cells of the brain and body and restore me to halth. "I acted on his advice and have no enue to regret It. fF have now been using Grape Nuts and Postum Coffee for some time and am in perfect health and weigh 10 lbs. more than I ever did. "Orape-Nuts Food is the crystallised es sence of all cereals. 1 eat It four times a day. prepared with cream, and also by pouring some of it out cf the box into my hand and then eating It. Postum Coffee has also helped me greatly." Name given by Postuta Co., Battle Creek. Mich. rejrular ones, on Wednesday and Saturday of each week, and an extra one on Thanks giving day. For Tuesday evening of next week the Rm-h'ur LndRe. of Crawfonis vllle. purchased all the seats. The prospect i. that at every performance the theater will be tilled to the walls. Excursions from out of town have been arranged for every day. The advance corps of mechanic? is at work on the Ftaze of the theater, putting In the machinery and the panorama of the , chariot race. Thin material is in duplicate, the other station now being in use in To ronto, Can. The company will give the final performance there on to-morrow after noon and will start Immediately on the Journey to Indianapolis. That is a long '"jump" for this production, there being an immense amount of machinery and scenery, a large company of actors and mechanics, besides twelve hr-8 and three camel?. Following the engagement here the com pany will go to Milwaukee. It will wait until next season for making the trip to the Pacific coast. tier MarrUffe Vow" mt the Park. In "Her Marriage Vow," a melodrama being acted at the Park Theater, the son of a railroad superintendent attempts to deceive and ruin the daughter of a locomo tive engineer, after he has been married to her, by persuading her that their mar riage was not legal. He has tired of her and desires another young woman. He does not stop short of attempts at murder and train wrecking to rid himself of the en gineer's daughter, but he falls In all of his enterprises and is himself destroyed. These are usual incidents in melodrama, but there also Is a figure that is novel a fellow that has been demented by a beating adminis tered to him by the villain and has there after served him This 'tool" recoils upon his master finally and hurls him over a cliff, thus avenging others and himself. He is named "Daffy Dan," and is imper sonated by Henry Buckler with such skill and intensity as to stir the audiences to fervent excitement. The scenes of the play are the home of the wronged girl, her apartment in Boston and a railroad cross ing near the cliff at which "Daffy Dan" kills the villain after the latter vainly has attempted to cause a collision between two trains. ew Plays In Washington. WASHINGTON. Nov. 20 Two new plays had their first productions here to-night. At the new National Theater the Japanese play, "The Darling of the Gods." with Blanche Bates in the leading role, was produced to a packed house, and at the Columbia Theater Andrew Mack's admirers welcomed him in "The Bold Soger Boy." "The Darling of the Gods." written by David Belasco and John Luther Long, deals with the Samurai, or two-sword men, against whom the Emperor of Japan issued the historic edict of 1871, commanding them to give up their swords. From a scenic viewpoint, the production rivaled in splen dor anything ever seen on a Washington stage. The costumes were rich and gor geous and the electrical effects decidedly unique. The musical setting, composed by William Fürst, was heartily applauded. The play throughout is original and has the coloring of old Japan. Miss Bates, in the character of Yo San. the daughter of the Prince of To San, had a difficult role, but made a success. Other well-known ac tors who appeared in the play are Charles Walcot, George Arllss, Robert T. Haines, Albert Brüning and Gaston Mervale. Andrew Mack's new play was written by Theodore Burt Sayre. Mack has the role of Lieutenant Adair, a young officer in the I'nlted States army. He has a number of new songs. PERSONAL AND SOCIETY. Mrs. Hugh McGlbeny is spending a few days in St. Louis. Mrs. H.

Another boy was ground beneath the wheels of a street car last night at 7:30 o'clock. William Keims, a messenger em ployed by the Postal Telegraph Company, met his death underneath a College-avenue car at Maryland and Meridian streets. It is the second accident within twenty-four hours by street cars. Young Keirns was horribly mangled. There was scarcely a bone in his body that was not broken. Keirns, with a number of other boys, had been hopping on the cars running on South Meridian street. Several witnesses said the boys had been Jumping on and off the cars. Young Keirns and three other com panions boarded College-avenue car No. 417, in charge of Motorman Edward Lawson and Conductor Frank Drexel. The car was going at a good speed and when the boys Jumped on Conductor Drexel told them to get off. Young Keirns and an other boy had been riding in the vestibule of the front end. When Conductor Drexel shouted at the boys Keirns and his com panions leaped off. Along the street-car tracks the Merchants' Heating and Light Company are putting in conduits and a pile of sand and dirt parallels the tracks for some distance. William Keirns stumbled as he fell in the sand. He was thrown forward, his head falling under the rear trucks. Two wheels passed over the center of his body and crushed every bone. "When the conductor and motorman attempted to take the body from under the car It was found that the left leg was wound around the shaft supporting: the rear motor. The body was taken to the morgue and later to Kregelo's undertaking rooms. The boy was seventeen years old and lived with his mother at room No. 19, Ryan block, Capitol and Indiana avenues.

Recommendations Concerning: Roads and Ditches An Address by Pearson Mendenhall, of This County. The twelfth annual meeting of the In diana Trustees' Association was concluded in the House of Representatives yester day afternoon. The most important busi ness of the session was transacted late in the afternoon when the reports of com mittees were read and acted upon. The committees on resolutions, schools, ditches and salaries of trustees made important reports, which were concurred in by the association. The committee on salaries of trustees made a report as follows: "That this body instruct its legislative committee to use all honorable means to have the law so amended that the per diem be increased from $2 to $3 per day. "That the law relating to tenure of office of the trustee be so amended that the trustee be made eligible to re-election. "That the law relative to the time of making the annual settlements be so amended that the making of township tax levy and the annual settlement be changed to the first Tuesday in August of each year, thereby making the year end on July 31." The committee on resolutions submitted a report somewhat similar to the foregoing report. The committee suggested that the salary of trustees be increased and that they be made eligible to re-election. The committee on resolutions also recommend ed: "That the present method of handling text-books is highly unsatisfactory and we recommend that some method be fixed of securing better books for the schools." COMMITTEE ON DITCHES. The committee on ditches also made an important report recommenuing: "That re pairs of public ditches be left in the hands of the township trustees as at present; that the trustee be allowed to let the contract for the repairs of ditches to the lowest re sponsible bidder and the costs of the same be placed upon the tax duplicate and col; lected as other taxes are collected." The report of the committee on roads was read and considered section by section, the association adopting the report in full. The committee reported as follows: "Our road laws should be fully and com pletely codified. "That $2.50 should be allowed for a day's work of eight hours with driver and team, and 11.25 should be allowed for a day of eight hours for a man working out the land tax. "That the maximum limit for the work levy should be changed from 30 cents on the $100 to 25 cents on the $100, and the addi tional road levy be Increased from 10 cents on the $100 to 20 cents on the $100. "That county treasurers be empowered to redeem land tax receipts within one year from the time of their issue in payment only of the tax on which they were worked. "That supervisors should be elected by the people and the township trustee given full control over them. "That the trustee be empowered to redis trict his township into as many road dis tricts as needed. The committee on schools made a report recommending that the transfer law should not be changed and the minimum pay of teachers left as it stands. The report of the committee on nomina tions was adopted, the officers selected be ing the same as announced in Thursday morning's Journal. MANAGEMENT OF THE POOR. The most important address at the after noon session was made by Pearson Men denhall, of Marion county, his subject be ing "Management of the Poor." Mr. Men denhall said the new laws which were passed by the last two legislatures and codified by Amos W. Butler, secretary of the Board of State Charities, have revolu tionised poor relief. These laws, he said, have helped the trustee in the discharge of his duties, and when he has applicants for assistance he can explain what he can and what he cannot do under the law. He said that if the trustee properly lives up to the laws he can more easily discharge his duties than before laws were enacted. A short talk was also made by W. B. Streeter, of the State Board of Charities, on the subject. W. L. Taylor, attorney general, also made a short speech on points pertinent to the management of their of fices. The morning session was devoted to a discussion on needed legislation. John W. Gibney, of Wabash county, assailed the present text-book law. He said the present law was good only for the book companies, and he urged that the law be revised so that the trustees would not be compelled to act as the agents of the bock companies. Mr. Glbney's suggestions were incorporated In the report of the committee on resolu tions. Louis Schermeyer. of Allen county, also attacked the Schoolbook law and urged legislation for better pay for teachers, john H. Pulling, of St. Joseph county, read a paper on the subject of township roads. He urged the passage of a law that would make railroad crossings less danger ous. He believed that thty should be wid ened and that the elevations at, the cross ings should not be so steep. He also ad vocated saving the trees along the high ways and a law making it compulsory for farmers to keep the weeds cut along the highways passing their farms. The discussion on the subject of ditches was led by Eli F. Coates. of Grant county, and Lafayette Klmmerling, of Madison county. BUTLER COLLEGE NOTES.

D THE IRON BRIGADE A STORY OF THE ARMY OF THE CHAPTER. XIII. RIVANNA TO RAPIDAN. Long as he lives Fred Benton will never forget that night ride from the Chiltons and the thrilling days that followed. Im periously had Queen Rosalie dismissed him. Impulsively had she turned away, refusing further look, touch or word. Her door closed behind her, and he well knew she meant her mandate to be final. "Not a second to lose!" Even now he should have been far up toward the mountains. Yet the doctor was again stirring uneasily about his room below. The light burned dimly in the lower hall. Pomp had disappeared from the window small task was it for that agile Imp to climb a lightning "rawd." But, groping back to his room, Benton heard again the stamp of hoofs beneath the win dow and muttered words and a sound as of straining over some unresponsive, inan imate burden. Then something heaved up through the dim starlight and lightly tapped against the clapboards below the sill, and something black came "swarming" up the other something Pomp again and Pomp chuckled at sound of Benton's whis pered hail. "We've got a ladder dis time, suh. Didn't dass try it befo wid dem sojus at de bahn," and by ladder, not by lightning rod, was the descent accomplished. Dusky hands helped the crippled soldier into saddle. Dusky hands waved him good-bye and good luck. Darky voices muttered blessings for the astonishing feel of gold in dusky palms for Benton would not ride until he had rewarded and then, never knowing until long, long after what chattel it was that aided Pomp in aiding him to mount, never seeking to know until the dawn whose was the dusky hand that took his bridle rein and led him cautiously away through the darkness, Benton lifted up his brave heart in brief, silent prayer for heaven's blessing on those that dwelt within that house, for heaven's guidance on his way, and gave himself unquestioning to Him whom she, his imperious queen, had appointed as his guide, and together they rode forth into the murmuring night. Through leafy lanes until clear of the vil lage, across a broad highroad into dark depths beyond, over a sloping pasture where, studying the stars on high, Benton first took note that they were heading west ward again, twisting and turning through winding woodpath, ever accompanied by the clamor of watch dogs not yet reconciled to night patrols. Twice compelled to let down bars and squeeze through half-opened barnyard gates, his silent conductor led on and Benton followed, until even the dogs of the suburbs were left behind, and they, the fugitives, had found the open country. Then at last his escort turned and said: "Kin you stand a little canter, Marstuh?" and Benton recognized the voice of Dusky Dan, and "stood" accordingly. They ford ed, somewhere about 2 o'clock, a llttl branch, a tributary of the rushing Rivan na, and were still heading westward when Fred's darky guide left him with both horses at the edge of a grove, while ht went forward afoot and reconnoitered Presently he came back rejolceful.

"Daniel had to go back to Marse Chilton's. Miss Rosalie done fixed all dat." And so. while Benton drank a husre tin of steaming coffee and ate hungrily at the rashers and "aigs" provided for him, his new attendant explained the situation. For years he had belonged to Marse Chilton, but when he married a lass on the Louns berry place, and by and by the chil'luns be gan to grow, Marse Chilton found him of less use than ever and swapped him off. And then he'd been Marse Lounsberry s coachman, and then was put in charge of Marse Pelham s "stawk," and finally he and his old woman were moved up here into the mountains to take care of the cat tle of certain fanciers who had prudently shifted their Jerseys and Ayrshires to the hills rather than see them requisitioned by a commissariat that already had begun to find Us limitations in the matter of fresh beef. His big boy Hector was "groomin" hawses," and from this point would lead him up on the east face of the range until near the Hedgman. He knew that country well, whereas old Dan did not, and the lat ter had to hurry home so that he might show about the Chilton place as usual. Miss Rosalie had ordered that, too. They would do anything in the world for her or for the doctor. But Mars'r ought to have been beyond the gap road Swift Run gap before sun up, and now 'twas long after, but Hector knew the ridge and a host of places to hide if need be. Hector had a sweetheart on the Hazel wham he greatly longed to see for whose sake more than thrice had he run the gauntlet to her welcoming arms, and so, once more, but in broad daylight now, and well up along the heights, with magnificent vistas of eastward Virginia al most every hour, they came at last in view of the twisting mountain road that pierced the range Jackson's runaway from the Shenandoah down to Gordonsville and here again Fred lurked in hiding while Hector scrambled down afoot to try the pass. Thus far the danger had been slight. Be tween Rockfish and Swift Run gaps there lay few roads through which scouting par ties would be apt to come. Brown's and Powell's gaps were then but little used. The Blue Ridge served as a screen or bar rier to their left. The line of communica tion of the Southern army was far over along the railway to the east. Jarkson and his nimble-footed brigades were still soms distance down th- Shenandoah to the north, but Hector had heard "old Stone wall" was retiring before overwhelming numbers, and that a lot of his soldiers were already at work over on the west side, throwing up fortifications, and couriers kept coming and going between him and "Marse" Kwtll down at "Gawd'nsville. ' Benton still wore the uniform coat and riding breeches in which he had been cap tured, though a sleeve was silt and a shoul der strap ha3 been ripped off. His forage cap, too, a Jaunty affair of the Mc'lllHn type, had been missing since the fight at the stone house, and he was sporting a black, broad-brimmed felt hat that had done duty in Jack Chilton's university days. Horse, horse equipments, Grimsley valise, and all items attached to th saddle, of course, were gone, but he still had his field Klass. A pair of the doctor's old saddle bags slung on his horse seemed bulging with sundries he had not yet had tlm- t- inspect. A blanket and poncho, "treasure trove" of Manassas the first, were strapped on the spare horse, together with a canteen marked u. S.. and that cant. , n Elector had replenished at a mountain stream only an hour agone. With their bits slipped and their fore feet hoppled the horses were placidly browsing among the bushes close at hand, and there, for over an hour this sunshiny April morning, the lonely Union soldier watched and waited, and over and Spain marveled at the generalship of the irl who had managed every detail con nected with his escape. Only that one renins; did she have in which to prepare, yet saddle bags were secured and packed, blanket and poncho provided, horses "nor owed" by Black Dan. with the connivanc e f a colored retainer, from the Pelham pas ture, within pistol shot of the 'varsity grounds (to take their own would have lent .00 much color to the theory that the doc tor connived), their very route mapped out ind determined, and all this by a Virginia naid yet in her 'teens, already the planner )f Paul lÄlue- escape already the heroine f a perilous midnight masquerade, the ob oct of which was still wrapped In torment ng mystery. If she would but condescend If he could ut induce her to account for that, what night it not mean to Benton? Only ones lad he ventured to begin to suggest that 'Indiana s Largest Music House." ÄTS explanation was something due to herself, when she lifted up her queenly little head and Just looked at him. and that ended fur ther questioning. Ten o'clock had come, so said his watch, before Hector reappeared, big-eyed, pant ing. There were 2on soldiers to the west of the sap digging forts, a squad in e farmhouse along the road, and about as much chance of a Yankee officer crossing in daylight as there was "of a needle's eye a-gittin' into heaven." Hector had been piously taught at some time in his life and now he looked at the blue and the brans buttons in dismay. Benton thought it over. The guard wer to come for him at G. and long ere this had discovered his escape. Pursuit and seafch would, of course, be made. "Anybody own bloodhounds around Charlottesville?" he asked, and Hector said "No." Still. Dan had gone back. Dan might be lashed and tortured until he revealed what he knew such things had happened and the sooner Benton reached the upper waters of tha Rappahannock and secured hiding place back of Warrenton known to Hector the better It would be for him for all. He doubted not that by noon couriers would come galloping out from Gordonsville tell ing of his escape and ordering guards and sentries on the lookout t verywhere along the gap. "Not a second to lose!" He sprang to the saddle bags and began a search. What had occurred to him would probably have oc curred to her, and it was Miss Rosalie, Dan affirmed, who packed them. With eager hands Benton pulled at the contents of the isSSIIUQSl s ilask of brandy from the doc tor's store, towel, handkerchiefs, sponge, soap, comb and brush, socks, shirt and un derwearJack's, of course, and probably a tight tit; small tin boxes containing ground coffee, sugar and other things no time to examine now! an extra sling and bandage for his arm; boot hooks! Think of a woman who would think of them! Then came a shout from Hector, rummaging on the other side, and over the broad back of Marse Pelham's old Pyramus came a worn gray sack coat and waistcoat, of Richmond make, and pinned to the lapel a scrap of paper on which, in pencil, appeared in Roman characters, not script, these words: "Map and spectacles in coat pocket. Small pistol also. Look out for Federals about Warrenton. Strip gold cord." Gold cord? Why. yes, that meant the narrow gold braid worn in the war days on the seam of the trousers by general and staff officers. Small compliment to him was it that she should think it necessary to re mind him of that. Yet. how sweet how sweet it was to see how she planned and thought for hlra. In less than half an hour a tall, pale faced, 6tudious-looking young man in spec tacles, slouch hat and worn sack coat of gray thrown loosely over a slung right arm with a dark-brown horse, a doctor's saddle bags and a darky follower on a non descript nif. turned deliberate fmtn a mountain path and took the highway to the eastward, for all the world as though he were bound for 6tanarJv lite or beyond. A few yards further the road twisted to the left and brought him in view of a moun tain cabin, close to a watering trough, where a squad of soldiers In queer-looking; frock coats of dingy gray were filling trtelr canteens. Another of their number, sick and dejected, was squatting on the steps, his sallow face the picture of woe. "Gawt any physic that will cure the cawllc. dawk tuh?" drawled a sun-tanned young fellow in sergeant's straps, and the doctor reined in, studied the patient attentively one mo ment, then swing out of saddle and stepped to his side. Asking no questions, he gravely felt the pulse and glanced at the coated tongue, smiled quietly to him self, and while Hector held the horses fum bled a minute at the saddle bags, stirred a cotnpound into a stone china cup that stood by the trough a compound whereof powdered sugar, spring water and spirit us vini gallic! were the sole ingredients, and In three minutes had the satisfaction of seeing the light of reviving Interest In life in the dull eyes of the Invalid and receiving the plaudits of half a dozen would-be pa tients. Gladly would they have held him, though from no hostile Intent, as, with ap parent serenity, yet with thumping heart, he rode away. He had heard enough to make it expedient that he should move at once. "Vou're the first dawktuh we've seen since we left hnnv . cept those in the army, suh." said the young sergeant. "Goeas they need 'em all." "You're not Virginian, then?" hazarded Benton, as he was mounting. "No, suh Fifteenth Alabama. Trimble's brigade, suh. We b'long down at Gawd'ns viile, but they sent a few companies out this way last night." "Know any of the Eleventh?" queried Benton, rashly, yet thinking it not unwise to display some knowledge of the Southern service "Lieutenant Dadue. of Mobile?" he continued at a venture. "Not many. suh. They're all with Gen eral Longstreet' and Anderson, down toward Yorktown." "Lieutenant Ladue alnt!" said the sick man. uplifting his sallow face. "He's on General Ewell's staff made me ride hia hawse this mornln', an' he ain't a mile away this minute." To be Continued To-morrow.) Why Not Get a Simplex for Christmas?
