Mr. Figman has established himself as a sincere artist by his admirable portrayal of "The Man on the Box" and it is said that "The Substitute" will add mater ially to his reputation. It is a play that affords him opportunity to show himself as an actor of character as well as comedy. The scenic produc tion will be very elaborate and Mana- utation by his work in staging such successes as "The Ninety and Nine," "The Wife," "The Charity Ball," and many other noteworthy productions. This play still holds its intense inter est and when seen here Saturday night will be presented with a strong cast. Florence lloberts.

Miss Roberts will appear In the new play by Seymour Obermer. called "The House of Bondage." This piece has already occasioned widespread com ment, through the boldness of its theme, which deals subsidiarily with the ethics of the medical profession with a love Interest, of course, predominating. Obermer is said to have written not only a play of tremendous originality and force, but one embodying cua logue of great rhetorical charm. It affords Miss Roberts' splendid emo tional gifts fullest sway, and also gives Manager John Cort an opportunity for a tasteful production whicn is maae the most of. The Clansman. This production, which has proba bly been discussed more than any oth er during the last ten years, will be be seen at the Grand. Friday nlgni, March 19. This clay is supported by a strong cast this season, and notwith standing the fact that it has been seen here several times will prove a strong attraction for local theatergoers. "Buster Brown." For Saturday night, March 20, the management of the Grand has secured as its attraction "Buster Brown," the master success of the year in the field of musical comedy. "Buster Brown" needs no Introduction, for we all know his face all the children have worn clothes fashioned after him. It needs only be said therefore that this is a third and all new edition or the com edv in every feature. The scenery. costumes, music and songs . are epic and span with newness, while the cast, headed bv the little chap who fairly exudes mirth. Master Rice, is away ahead of any yet seen we are prom ised. "Buster Brown" should be large ly welcomed. At the Majestic. The bill at the Majestic theater for next week is an exceptionally strong one, and is probably the strongest which has been seen at this popular nlavhouse for some time. The fea ture act is Mile. Somerville and her ten thousand dollar horse, "Colum bus." The horse executes such move ments as a waltz, two-step,- buck dance, pasamala, high step cake walk trot and side canter, and backward canter, being the only horse in exist-onf-A which can do these tricks. We- nona and Francis, two of, the best rifle shots in the world have been secured and will prove a strong card. They offer a challenge of five thousand dol lars for their equal. This is the same rifle team that featured with Buffalo Ttm on his FuroDean trip. James and Lucia Cooper have an interesting skit for next week entitled "The Chattering Phnma " which is said to De very gooa. The Youngs have an interesting nmoriv transformation, act. Leona Lester, a singing and dancing come hot, i another attraction. Glen Wag- o-nner will sins the illustrated song and the Majestlscope moving pictures complete the bill. . At the Novelty. What promises to be one of the most delightful vaudeville bills of the season has been provided for next week at the Novelty theater. Heading the program will be the famous World's Comedy Four, a male quartet that has won the highest praise all over the Orpheum and other high class circuits of the country. This is said to be one of the best singing or ganizations in vaudeville and in addi tion to Its vocal abilities the company offers a splendid comedy entertain ment. Another feature that is herald ed as a top-liner will be George Evers and his boys in a great comedy black face act. A distinct novelty will be offered by Ernie and Mildred Potts, who will present their bag punching and dancing specialty and Inness and Ryan will be seen In thetr clever sing ing and comedy act. The sensational features of the bill will be furnished by Valveno and Tresk, a team of per formers who will offer some startling i. - . : r.

As a member of the Valhalla. inh. and a practical librarian, we .mav ex pect from Miss Wirick a valuable con- xriDution to the Hutchinson program Another change to be noted is the -withdrawal from the Child Labor committee or Miss Ealsv Devlin nf the Whittler Club, of Leavenworth, and the appointment of Mrs. Katheryn Eddy of the same club to fill the va cancy. Miss Devlin Is contemplating a trip South w-hich will prevent her presence at the annual convention. Although the Kansas Dav Tubercu losis appeal to clubs and citizens en countered Inclement weather, yet the cry was heard, for reports are coming in or work done ana runds sent to Dr. Van Horn, secretary of the State Asso elation for the Study and Prevention or 'lniDerculosis. As necessary a money is to the prosecution of the work, yet tho In terest awakened in the publin mind, its attention upon so vital a suhject, Is of primary importance, hence the appeal to the club women of Kansas for their help and co-operation. The pluckiest thing of which we have learned, was the effort of fair young ladies of Leavenworth who, as a committee from their club, went forth in the Kansas blizzard on Jan. 29th, and took in $120 for the Tuber culosis association. Mrs. W. W. Wood of Horton. pres ident of the First District Federation, writes that she had no returns from the greater number of clubs as to their tuberculosis work( but the Sever ance Club, Mrs. R. H. Merrick, presi dent, reports twelve dollars and forty cents. Soldier, Mrs. C E.

From, Miss Estella Barnes of Wich ita we learn that the City Federation of Wichita will spend the month of March in a campaign to raise money to support a visiting nurse to work among the - wiorthy poor of the city, j It Is estimated that the work cannot be begun without $800 pledged. The plea Is made for 400 women to pledge $2 each and with what the clubs will vote from the treasury the work can be carried to a successful conclusion. Tag Day a Grand Success.

There are many women's organi zation In the town. By uniting they have formed a strong city federation of twenty different organizations. The federation started a movement for a Carnegie library building. They were organized in September last and soon had Mr. Carnegie's promise for $10, 000. January 29th. the election car ried three to one in favor of the free public library and tax to maintain it. The mayor appointed six ladies (half the board) on the library board.
