Memphis Citizen Hopes For a Place on Philippine Commission. Memphis, Tenn., Feb. 23. General Luke E. "VVilght, who is mentioned as a probable appointee on the Philippine commiBBion, left for Washington last night. While no statement could be ob tained from him with regard to his visit, It is accepted here by his friends that he has been summoned to the na tional capital by the president and his appointment to a place on the commis sion is believed to be assured. General Wright said that if the ap pointment was tendered him he would accept it. AT THE PLAY LAST SIGHT. The scenery used in the production of ""Black Crook. Jr. forms its only fea ture. The production was launched by the Denver Theater company recently. and an entire equipment of new scenery supplied. Consequently the various settings, illuminated in colors, form pretty stage pictures and save the man agement from the charge of obtaining .money under false pretenses. If there is any genuine talent in the company presenting the junior edition of the old spectacular piece it failed to come to the surface at the Crawford theater last night. Miss Maud Shepard. a young lady who formerly lived in To peka., wore a Grecian costume grace fully in the part of the queen of the fairies, and delivered the benediction before the "grand transformation pcene in an accomplished manner but few in the audience heard her. The 'Amazon' march disclosed considerable old age and many Imperfect attempts to remedy failures on the part of na ture. 25 Cents Off. Per ton on all kinds of coal for spot cash.

Second Presentation to Be Giv en Tonight. Pick Smith's Unique History of the Topeka Lodge. "My Lord in Petticoats" was present ed at the annual benefit of the Topeka Elks at the Grand Opera House last night. A large audience saw the piece, and generously repaid the efforts of the performers with applause. Miss Georgia Brown of Lawrence.who has been exceptionally successful in di recting amateur theatricals, has had the rehearsing of the farce in charge, and her work was evident in the perform ance. Miss Brown took part in the farce in the character of the real "Dona Lucia." The Topeka Dramatic club includts some of the best amateur talent in the city, and this fact was proven as de cidedly in last night's clever perform ance as in any of the perform ances for which the club has been re sponsible in the past. The cast included three recent recruits to the successful organization, Miss Emilie King, Mr. Harry Van Nordstrandt and Mr. Wal ter Smith. "My Lord in Petticoats" will be given a performance tonight and Saturday afternoon. The characters of the clever farce were taken as follows: Stephen Spettigue, Solicitor, Oxford Walter Smith. Col. Sir Francis Chesney, late Indian Service Dean Low. Jack Chesney, Undergraduate Hale Hamilton. Cherley Weychom, St. Olde College Adrian Sherman. Lord Fancourt Babberly, Oxford Joseph Morgan. Brassett, College Scout Harry Van Nordstrandt. Kitty Verdum.Spettigue's Ward Vir giline Mulvane. Amy Spettigue, Spettigue's Niece Emilie King. Ella Delahy, an Orphan Daisy Smith. Pick Smith contributed the following unique history of the Topeka lodge published in the progrpmme: Topeka lodge No. ?04 of the Benevo lent and Protective Order of Elks, is now well-nigh onto ten years old, and, in truth and in fact, is "gettin' a big boy now." We have "growed" mighty fast recently, until dad's coat now fits Willie nicely, with no wrinkles in the back. We would like to tell you how we have prospered during the last year, but don't like to brag; but we will say this much as we believe in advertising' everything that is a good thing for Topeka that our membership has in creased so much during the past year that we have found it necessary to either change our stamping-ground or enlarge our quarters. Consequently we have just closed, contracts with the owners of Masonic temple wherein we live, move and have our being for more than double our present space, and when the changes are completed, which will be right soon, we will have the fin est and most convenient quarters out side of Missouri excepting, of course, our state's institution at Lansing. Then, when wo have social "doings" up there, we will not be crowded to death, and our guests who have corns and bunions will have more latitude. We will then have three dining-rooms, a large libra ry and reading-room, which can be used for dancing, several parlors and reception rooms in short, all that heart could desire or money (that is, some money) purchase for our comfort and pleasure and to make glad the hearts of our guests; and if you are not an Elk you will not be "in it," often. (To the ladies: If your husband is not an Elk. you'd better see that he ap plies at once for admission that is. if he is a real nice man, as we are to have just a little the swellest house-warming when our new quarters are in shape that "ever happened" on this portion of the "footstool." None but Elks and their kin-folk will be invited that is, of the sterner sex. Of course, if you are a spinster we mean a maiden fair and some nice Elk sends po an "invite" to attend this function, don't you think of declining, for, really and truly, as you girls would express it, the affair will be decidedly recherche.) But, as we were saying before, we really don't know how long the war in South Africa will last, but that don't bother us any more than the bear-fight did the woman. What: never heard of it? Well, that is funny, for it is a reg ular old chestnut. But here it is: A poor woman was strolling through the woods in search of her husband, who had been out all night "sitting up with a sick friend" or attending some one's birthday party at least she didn't know where the blessed man was. She unexpectedly came upon him in a heat ed controversy with a bear. He solicited her good" offices in his behalf, but as it seemed about an even tussle and she believed in fair play, she merely re marked as she turned on her right heel (we believe it was) and wended her way homeward: "Go it, man! Gi it, bear! I don't give a snap which whips." And yet, people sometimes ask single men why they don't get married. We go thus into details in our History of the F.Iks, lest some people who know little, if anything, concerning us, may get a wrong impression of our objects and purposes in life. Many men who have never yet taken an excursion on the hurricane-deck of our goat, and some women, too, have an idea that we are never possessed of a serious thought. They're 'way off the reservation in this respect. Next year we will tell you more of our secrets maybe. Hoping you will enjoy the play and have sweet dreams after you retire to night, and every night, for that matter, and that you will give us another lift next season, we bid you good night.

During the early part of October, 1S96, I contracted a bad cold which settled on my lungs and was neglected until I feared that consumption had appeared in an in cipient state. I was constantly coughing and trying to expel something which I could not. I became alarmed and after giving the local doctor a trial bought a bottle of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy and the result was immediate improve ment, and after I had used three bottles my lungs were restored to their healthy state.

Saves a Hough Rider From a Long Imprisonment in Cuba. New York, Feb. 23. A dispatch to the Herald from Havana says: Emilio Cassi, who was a bugler in the Rough Riders, has been released from jail by Governor General Wood, Cassi was serving a three years' sen tence for having killed Lieut. Martinez of the Cuban army last March. Cassi at the time was lieutenant of police, and the shooting occurred dur ing the progress of a fight in the In- giaterra hotel over the distribution of the $3,000,000 among Cuban veterans. Cassi was born in Italy, but is an American citizen. Feeling ran high against him among Cubans, who threat ened lynching. A wealthy Cuban girl. Miss Castillo, became infatuated with Cassi and mar ried him in jail about a month after his imprisonment. She had given away a fortune to the revolutionists during the waT, and after the marriage ap pealed to General Gomez to use his influence for her husband. Gomez refused because Cassi is an American citizen. Since then she has spent another fortune striving to gain her husband's release. She pleaded with Governor General Woods, Gov ernor Roosevelt. President McKinley and the military authorities here. Nothing daunted her. To gain her purpose she offered jailors large bribes until orders were issued denying her entrance to the prison. She disclosed to the military authori ties last summer a plot of Cubans to blow up the Tacon theater and another municipal building in Santa Clara on the night of the Fourth of July. The information caused alarm in military circles and for ht-r conduct her hus band's pardon was promised if the con spirators were arrested. Havana was put under military guard that night, and a regiment of soldiers watched the buildings in Santa Clara. An attempt was made at both places, exactly ac cording to details furnished by Mrs. Cassi. Three men were caught in the act of placing packages of dynamite under the Tacon theater. Since Governor General Wood's ar rival he has taken an interest in the case, and considering Cassi's heroism at Santiago he granted the pardon. Cassi left Havana secretly atter ms release and will probably go to the United States with his wife immediately, as he fears death at the hands of the Cubans. CHICAGO BALL CLUB.
