At the Auditorium. Sembrich, December 4. At the Grand. Eddie Foy. Tuesday, December 7. Johnson-KItchel Fight Moving Pic tures. December 3. "Do," with John E. Young, Decem ber 4. "There are so many strange things in heaven and earth. Horatio, than are dreamed of in your philosophy," said Hamlet to his friend. And Eddie Fov's "Hamlet" is one of them. It is the strangest Hamlet that the stage has ever seen, and that It is the funniest would seem to go without saying. Of course, the "Hamlet" that Mr. Foy will appear in before the aud ience at the Grand Tuesday, December 7, is not the "Hamlet" of Shakespeare, but a product of Edgar Smith. Ed ward Madden and Ben Jerome, writ ten especially for the droll comedian and entitled "Mr. Hamlet of Broad way." This musical comedv is said to be the best vehicle that the comical Foy has ever had. and to supply an even ing's entertainment the like of which has seldom been enjoyed. As proof of tne latter quality, it ran for seven months at the Casino theater In New xcrk. Eddie Foy, Who Will Be at the Grand Tuesday. In the comedy Foy plays the part of Joey Wheaze, a stranded circus clown who suddenly finds himself among a crowd of ambitious amateurs who are undertaking an outdoor pro duction of "Hamlet." J ' ' v. 1 1 1 i v n; i n Jiivii happens to be that of the Melancholy Dane. Joey Wheeze has ever wanted to tackle this character.

A company numbering nearly 100, many of them almost as famous rnMm l The Al. G. Barnes Elephants Which Will Be at the Novelty Next Week. ' as the star himself, have been engaged to support Mr. Foy. Following the appearance of "Mr. Hamlet of Broadway" In Denver this week George Creel, dramatic writer for the Denver Post, said In part regard ing the principal: "Foy himself is amazingly amusing. He is so rich in comedy that it oozes from him like olive oil from a Turkish wrestler. Every twist of his mouth, turn of a toe. wave of the hand, in flection of the voice, has its humorous significance, and there is not his equal on the American stage in mastery of burlesque and subtle clowning. And that he firmly believes In his abili ty to play Shakespearean roles, and is somewhat sad over the cruelty of fate that compels him to maltreat the im mortal William, lends an additional touch of humor to the part he Is now playing." Additional Interest will be given to the wonderful motion pictures of the Johnson-Ketchel fight which took place at Colma, Cal., recently as a result of the signing of articles of James J. Jeffries and Jack Johnson to battle for the world's chair pionsnip n the founn of July next. Many persons win De curious to fee the giant negro in action and to discuss his chances with the man who held th ; heavyweight crown lor a grepter period than that of any other champdon. The Johnscn-Ketchel fight pictures will be shown at the Grand mriaay, December 3 and are said to be tne most realistic pictures of a prize fight ever taken. At the Xovelty. Prof. Al E. Barnes, world's famous mastpr animal trainer, and his herd of educated comedy elephants, one of the most famous headliners now showing in vaudeville, has been securea Dy me management of the Novelty theater for next week. This week they are direct from the New York hippodrome, and are on their way to Frisco. It is something that vaudeville pat rons of Topeka have never had the pleasure of witnessing before on the vaudeville stage. Barnes performs feats with these elephants as if they were human. The finish of this act entitled "In the Laundry," is the most laugh able thing that has ever been accom plished with dumb animals. Arthur Don and Minnie May Thomp son which has been a headiiner on the Orpheum circuit in their singing ani dancing. This act will more than pleasa with its wit. There has also been se cured Mr. Herbert Lennon, America's famous character actor. His first im personation is that of a dope fiend of which people in the small towns know very little. The very curl and snarl of the lips and the devil-may-care tone of the voice, the nervous twinge of his fingers, everything to the flit of the ash from the cigarette, is the work of an artist Impersonator. Mr. Lennon fin ishes with the Impersonation of the well known Billie Van. Kivell & Deery, sensational acrobats. They do things that seem almost Im possible. Leslie & Adams, singing, dancing and travesty is out of the or dinary. Miss Hazel Kaiser, the Novelty stock singer, closes for the time being Saturday.

Bradstreet's says: Cold weather and the holiday sea son's approach have continued to stimulate retail trade and measurably improve reasserting trade with job bers. Rains and snows, while tern porarily retarding country trade by making tne roads bad. have checked the excessive growth of insect dam age to winter wheat and given p. good quantity of moisture to the growing piant, tnus placing tnat crop in good shape to enter the winter. In Whole sale trace there are however, some intimations of cross currents tending to restrict fullest activities. The high price or cotton is still responsible for some curtailment of output and also some hesitation on the part of buyers wno are slow to follow the goods market upward. Industrial reports are generally of large, in some cases record output for the season, though here again, as for instance in the case of iron and steel undiminished activity in buying is noted In finished products, while the raw material market, particularly pig iron. Is quieter, and some more ease is noted. Production and shipments are at record heights. Collections are good, except where in points in the northwest and at the south producers display a tendency to hold back supplies.
