"Arizona." at the 'raw ford liist nit;ht cmld almost smell tr, sage brush, taste the alkali and feel the prick of the cactus of that wild ter ritory, ao reaiistic was the play to the locality. The story is laid in the Aravaipa val-l'-y. 30 niiies from Fort errant near Old arrp Oiant.ar'd niilesK i'r;m the Gila. J'i his play of ' Alabama" Mr. Thomas curried his audiences t trie mapnoiia Frented Taladega. of that state and "In Mizzouri" his auJienre? w( re in the typ ical Pike county. Perhaps no play-v.-risrht can jrraep that subtle Ingredient ifo necessary to a pviccesful portrayal, li cal color, so weli as Mr. Thomas. Kvery 1ttle detail tf "Aiizuna" in the scenery Htiil the drcilnff of the play is carried cut to a r.tcety. When the cavalrymen rr: V"? in their typical frontier uniforms 1 r-T.i a SiJ miles ride they are covered rwith the alkali dust of the desert. The ctAVboya wear the tyfical shapajaroa find bii Mexican ppurs. The vaquero is typical from his half Greaser, half Eng lish cuss words to the everlasting- Mex ican brown paper cigarette. The bis red bandannas are knotted about the necks ff the men with the tied ends behind the neck so that the bulk of the colth can be raised to the mouth, t-yes and nose to wipe away the sting of the set tling dust. The bis soft felt hats are twisted and punched in exactly in the manner which is so characteristic of the cavalryman and the rancher. The stal v art ol 1 rancher, t'anhy. is typical in 1 ! gruff wajs and sayings but as he ex plains it in Arizona they are "shy on water, but have a whole lot of charity i r w omen." The company which presented "Ari Eora" last right is a good one and vorthy to sueceed the original company. 3ast reason the Tupcka theater groers liad a chance to see the original com pany, now making- such a success at the 3ierald S-iuare theater in New York. and the second company compares well. Jas. K. Fulton as "Henry Canhy," owner of the Aravaipa ranch, was not quite equal to the oripln.-U. Theodore Roberts, as he had to borrow a deal more of the swasr trer and gruffness of the rancher but he si as not displeasing. Frazier Coulter as "t'ol Konham" does not compare well with last year's character. Kleanor A ilton as "Mrs. Canhy." the wife of the rancher, was deci iedly clever in the por trayal of the character who hated Ari zona so much because jshe could not wear bed diamonds ard "had to let the clock run down to know when it was f uniay," because of the loneBomeness of te place. Orac Thome as "Eitrella Konham." wife of the colonel, was good and in comparison makes the part decid edly better than it was last season. "Iena Keilar." a small part, is well han dled by Carrie Reynolds. Lionel Karrymore as "Ueut. Denton," the hero is a surprise. He was under study to the character with the company last season and handled a smaller part in a manner which would prive no one a suspicion of his ability. As the heroic, honorable and wronged officer and man he injected a naturalness into the part which was pleasing:. At no time did he step out of or overdo the part. "Bonita Canhy," by Laura Almor.sina, is a most trying part when it has been created by such an actress as r.leanor Robson but Miss Almonsino handled it in a pleasing manner. The love scene with Denton still remains the same charming little bit of love making and has lost none of its flavor in the hands of the two new players. Charles I.ane as "Captain Hodgraan," was a capital villain, so good that the audience was glad to see him killed. Catherine Countess as the school teach er, did the small part well and gave Ben D. Dean as "D. it. Fenlon," a chance for some funny remarks about the absence of suspenders from his wardrobe. Wil lard Curtis as "Tony Mostana, a va quero." was about as perfect a Mexican as he could be. His vernacular, gait and songs were just as a real Mexican would make them. His gleaming teeth, cigar ettes and leather clothes were tpyical. Charles E. Mitchell, as "Sergeant Kei lar." was a gruff old German sergeant In every move and speech. He seemed to have been transplanted from Fort Grant to the stage in an instant. In all the company is a strong one and the play does not suffer In any instance. The scenery with the play this year was perhaps, better than last year as it has leen arranged to fit small stages like the Crawford. The patio scene of Can by's hacienda was painted with a real ism which seemed to have stolen the col ors from the adobe walls and tiled and thatched roofs of the territory and placed them on the canvas. There was a typical Mexican ox cart, too, and the hot sun beating on the desert and the heat rising from the sands could almost be felt w hen the audience looked through the big gate and imagined the sand stretch between, there and the next place, wherever it might be. The play is not without comedy and when "Canby," in speaking of "Col. Bon ham" and his wife says that he "has broke colts to go double," but doesn't know how to break the colonel and his wife there is a titter and when "Denton" informs him that he loves ids daughter, the old rancher is excited, but controls himself and makes a sudden move for his right hand pistol pocket. "Denton." however, is too quick for him and draws his Colt's with finger on the trigger and covering the ranchman is ready for "a shootin' scrape" but the old rancher was not after a gun, he thought in his ex citement that he needed a cooling bite of "the weed" and he draws from his pocket a. pouch of finecut and takes a supply on board. No "gun play" after all and the audience sees comedy enough in that. "Arizona" is certainly one of the best plays written by an American author, Family Washing 3c to 5c Per Pound.

Indianapolis, Ind., Feb. 15. Albert Neilson, aged 15 years, employed as an animal keeper at the Zoological garden in this city, was killed by a Bengal tiger today. He entered the cage in which the tiger was confined and was attacked by the beast. A terrible strug gle followed in which Neilson was torn in a hundred places. Hed hot irons were thrust into the blood-thirsty ani mal, but not until seven bullets had been tired into his body did it reiase its hold on its victim. Neilson was dragged from the cage more dead than alive and was hurried to the city hospital where he died as he was being carried in. The tiger was not fatally wounded. Neilson lived at Piqua, O., and had been employed by the Zoo company three years. He was in charge of the lion cubs and it is supposed opened the tiger's cage by mistake. SLlASHEDTTiELl.

His Ideas of "Loyalty." The Irish-Americans of Topeka put themselves on record today. They pre sented Ed Weilep, representative from Cherokee countv. with a large floral harp. In recognition of his work in the house Thursday. The letter of thanks for sympathy expressed at Victoria's death had gone upon the house journal when Weilep objected to it and was suc cessful in having It expunged from the record.

The harp was placed upon his desk while he was at dinner. NEW STXFFBAGE BILL. Hr. Hamer's Measure Allows Women to Vote For President Representative R. M". Hamer, of Lyon, introduced a bill in the house this morn ing granting suffirage to women to vote for the president of the United States. The bill goes no further" than this one proposition, but if successful, would mean the entering wedge to give the fair sex universal suffrage in Kansas. The enacting clause reads: "That hereafter in all elections for presidential electors in the state of Kansas the right to vote shall not be abridged with regard to sex; women shall be permitted to vote th same as men, under like qualifications and restrictions as men.

As a support and ptrengthener to the anti-trust law the bill introduced by Representative Willits) is supposed to operate, if it should get through. The amendment proposed m the bill, which was drawn by Former Senator Kimball of Parsons, provides for an action, for damages to treble the amount or suf ferance and makes competent the testi mony of dealers in the same kind of commodities as to the questions of cost and prices.

NO NIBBLER. An Old Fish Knows Good Bait From Poor. A good old family Doctor down hi Edenburg, Miss., says he is not afraid to tell the truth about coffee and its effect on him and the remarkable change pro duced by leaving off and taking Postum Food Coffee in its place. He used coffee formally years.and says, "Of late years I have been so nervous that I dreaded to perform an operation, and my eyesight had bothered me a con siderable. I think about two years ago I first heard of Postum Food Coffee, and gave it a trial. I am not quick to bite at humbugs, but the change in my physical condition brought about by leaving off coffee- and taking Postum Food Coffee was a complete surprise. I began to eat well, sleep well, and in just tnree months my eyesight was restored, my nerves strong, headaches disappeared, and my chronic catarrh of thirteen years stand ing was cured with little or no treatment except the change in coffee. I am today stout, erect, and weigh 20 pounds more than I did before giving up coffee. I have an extensive practice and have had very satisfactory results among jny patients where I have induced them to leave off coffee and take Postum in its place. Coffee is ruining and destroying thou sands of our young Americans, and it is a pleasure to know of a nutritious and palatable breakfast beverage that re builds the nervous system rather than tears it down, as the old coffee does. It may interest you to know that we had much the same experience as many others when we first began to prepare Postum. We boiled it in a desultory sort of way for a few- minutes and the pro duct was not satisfactory. Turning to the directions we discovered the fault ar.d from that time we have followed those directions which are simple enough, with the most satisfactory re suits in point of flavor and food value. With my best wishes for your contin ued success." Dr. A. G. Alston. prohibiting filthy actions in public buildings, providing a penalty for train robbery, regulating trust companies. Bills in the Senate. The" following bills wer introduced in the senate this morning: By Partin To provide for the leas ing of lands and town lots where the county has held the same on tax deeds.

By Smith Allowing county commis sioners to acquire title to unsold school lands for use as burial grounds. By Branine Relating to excessive fees of probate judges. By Tapri Regulating the salary of the coroner of Sedgwick. Governor Signs Bills. The governor has signed the bills es tablishing a cadet corps at the state ed ucational institutions, and the bill pro viding for the appointment of certain officers in cities of the second and third class. Advocate Cullom Bill.

Topeka, Kas., Jan. 27, 1901. To Mothers: I wish to recommend "Burton's Sanatory Milk" for' infants and invalids in the highest possible terms. My babe is now the embodiment of health and vigor, and had it not been for this milk I do not believe he would be alive. Not for one thousand dollars would we change him from this diet. While in Chicago we used the Walker Gordon milk, but while it sells lor double the price, it is not one-half so good. Gratefully, MRS. JOSEPH W. O'CONNOR. Note. Joseph W. O'Connor is the contractor on the federal building, but his home is in Chicago. TO DA IT'S MARKET REPORT. Chicago, Feb. 15. WHEAT Under the leadership of the corn market and aided also by firm cables. May wheat opened c higher at lo'a c today. Trade, was light and mostly local, however, and dur ing the first hour May sold off to 75V2c. Receipts were liberal. Minneapolis and Du luth reporting 432 cars, against 451 cars last week and 581 a year ago, while local cars were 33, four of which graded con tract. The market was dull and fluctuated narrowly the remainder of the session. May touched 75c and closed a shade lower at Tntc. CORN There was a large trade in corn early. The tone of aggressive strength, which has been noticeable lately, is still in evidence. Country offerings were light, the cash demand pressing and the total of yesterday's cash sales here put at 600. 000 bushels.

Chicago, Feb. 15. WHEAT Liverpool cables were c lower today and barring strength in corn, grain markets were in clined to weakness. Northwest receipts were smaller than a year ago by lr-9 cars and their markets were weaker than Chi cago. Volume of business was small and old time tracers are intiuitu w hard spots and keep short a moderate line, figuring that the market Is too high on its merits and that a break of 8 or 10 cents a bushel is sure to come sooner or later. The news and statistics are all bearish, but a short interest seems to ac cumulate every time the market starts down and they run to cover on the first sign of tn advance, causing these sharp bulges of late. We see nothing in the situation to warrant buying, except for a small scalping profit, and on the other hand we believe good long profits can be made by selling short on bulges and ex ercising a little patience. Estimated cars tomorrow, 45. , , , CORN Corn was strong and higher again today. To start with, cables came id higher, sympathizing fully with our advance of yesterday, and this induced shorts to cover freely, advancing the price to 407c for May. There was con siderable offered on the advance and the market dropped back and closed at a small gain over yesterday's closing prices. Corn is in a strong position. Short sellers are few and scattered, while the bulla are powerful and concentrated. Estimat ed cars tomorrow, 276. OATS Oats were quiet and featureless. PROVISIONS Provisions were. not act ive today. There were 30.000 hogs at the vnrrlq wltb rtrices slow and a shade lower. Mav pork closed with a loss of 12U.C a barrel from yesterday's closing.
