Orman's Tlura!ity over Goucry appears as 22.722. which will likely be increased by the returns still to come.

Fire which started about 3 o'clock this afternoon in the gymnasium at University of Notre Iame destroyed the structure. Two alarms were sent in, but all .ne firemen could do was to protect adjoining build ings. The building: was of steel and brick and was one of the largest college gymnasiums in the world. It was erect ed in 1S9S and lS!if. It was large enough to permit football and baseball prac tice; had a track, baths, and in every way was perfectly equipped. While the flames were still raging the university trustees held a session and voted to re place the structure with another gym nasium. vChen you can not sleep for coughing.

E.UPER0H WILLIAM'S HUNT. Ha Dodged the Rabble This Tear to Escape Insults. Berlin, Nov. 10. This week Emperor William held the St. Hubert's hunt in the military grounds at Doeberitz. Here tofore the hunt had been held annually in Grunwald near Berlin. Of recent years, however, the rabble had grosslv insulted the emperor's guests by shouting approbrious epithets and making offen sive jests. This explains the choice ol Doeberitz. Thousands of Berlin excursionists, however, went to Doeberitz seeking ad mission to view the hunt but they vets roughly driven off. French and Russians Object. London, Nov .10.

Hear Blatchford Kavanaugh and Ro ney's Boys, Wednesday evening, at the First Congregational church, Nov. 14. n!c Pills MAYOR DREW'S LETTER An Accidental "Hit" in a Sapho Burlesque. The Omnipresent Cake Walk Is Produced. The man who carries off the honors of "The Burgomaster" does not have his name in the printed cast on the pro gramme. He is not an actor. He is a performer, though, and performed last night at the Crawford on the piano, leading the orchestra. He is the corn poster of the music, Gustav Luders. His work enjoys the distinction of at once meeting with popular favor, pe has cer tainly outdistanced all other composers in their output for the year. He is as sisted by Frank Pixley, who wrote the words to the songs. When the audience left the theater last night all who could whistle, and some who couldn't, were whistling "The Tale of the Kangaroo," the song hit of the piece. Up and down Kansas avenue, on the side streets, in the street cars and restauiants could be heard the tune, and even after you went to bed there was a chance that some belated ganiery god" might be trudging home a little later than the parquet people, and he too would be whistling the tune. Even a bus driver who did not see the comedy heard the peanut boy, who ran out be tween acts to restock his basket, whist ling about the kangaroo and the driver took it up. He traveled north and be fore the performance was finished he had spread it through Smoky Row, across the river and to North Topeka. The policemen were whistling it, the watchman at the railroad crossing waved his flag keeping time as he whistled "I worked tonight for you." A moterneer heard it and whistled it into South Topeka. And so it traveled. By this morning everybody in Topeka who could pucker his lips properly was whistling "The Tale of the Kangaroo' on his way down town. There are other sones which are popular also. 1 JJrmk from my Heart to You," "One of the Working Girls," "The Liberty Girl," and "The Gripman," which has been, pirated by dozens of companies. "The Burgomaster" is a freak. It is called "an original musical comedy." It is certainly original and also funny. There is a prologue and two acts. The prologue is like a comic opera. The two acts are like nothing ever heard of be fore. The prologue represents New Am sterdam at the time when the Dutch flag waved over the port. The two acts represent New York and Chicago of to day, very much up to date. Harry Dav enport is "Peter Stuyvesant, burgo master of New Amsterdam," the lead ing part. Davenport is supposed to be funny. He is as much as the part will allow, but the character admits of very little save a few puns. William Norris played the part during the Chicago en gagement and Davenport is far better than Norris, although his songs suffered last night on account of his cold. Knox Wilson as "Doodles" makes the hit of the piece in his specialty. He got music out of an accordeon while he writhed all over the stage. He was call ed back several times after his saxa phone solo. William Riley Hatch, whose home is Wichita, and Laura Joyce Bell, bur lesqued "Sapho" in a way that brought the longest laughs of the evening. Hatch as "Jean" made Miss Bell as "Fanny" read the letters which revealed her "past." "Sapho's" hair was of the red known only in hair and the aurora borealis. She was bediamoned from her waist up. Her dress of wine colored silk was strangely and wonderfully puffed and flounced. "Jean" wore a short waist and knickerbockers. He forced "Fanny" to read. The first letter she read was as follows: "Miss Fanny Le Grand. "I must request you to secure other apartments as this hotel is equipped with automatic fire sprinklers in the at tic and every time you rehearse your part the hotel is flooded. "MANAGER "Of the Throop Hotel." "R-r-r-r-r-ead the next," commanded Jean in a very melodramatic manner. "Oh, Jack, I mean Jean, please spare me." wailed "Sapho." "N-n-n-n-ever, r-r-r-r-read." She read. ' I "Miss Fanny LeGrand. "Dear Madam: I will furnish you a closed carriage to ride to and from the theater as some nervous Jdiot always sees your hair and turns in a fire alarm. "G. O. WILMARTH, "Fire Marshal." "Jean, must I read any mere?" weep er! Fanny. "Yes! R-r-r-r-ead." "Miss Fanny LeGrand. "I understand your performance of "Sapho" is not fit for decent people to see. Please reserve me a box for Friday night. C. J. DREW, Mayor." Then "Jean" said he would carry "Sapho" up stairs. She made a flying leap into his arms. A man appeared at the side of the stage and held a step ladder for "Jean" to climb and the lights went out for the change of scene. The musical attraction has not been here this season that did not have a cake walk. In "The Ameer" it has been stepped in Afghanistan. In "A Black Sheep" it was walked in Arizona. In "A Runaway Girl" it was done in Cor sica and Venice and in "The Burgomas ter" a cake walk step was done by the Indians in New Amsterdam 200 years ago. Richard Mansfield as "Henry VIII" may yet have to come to it. Perhaps "Sherlock Holmes" will try it. Who knows? But the cake walk in "The Burgomaster" was good. The costumes were very good. Little special scenery was used. The names of 79 people appeared on the programme while the company only carries 48. That number was sufficient. The stage would not be large enough for many more. The production of "The Bugomaster" here was better than in Chicago at the Dear born theater last spring. The perform ance "went" better and several changes have been made which improves . the piece. Choate Visits Salisbury. London, Nov. 10. Joseph H. Choate, the United States ambassador, is spend ing the week with Lord Salisbury at Hatfield House. th( nrpmin-'a crvuntrv seat in Hertfordshire.
