Jlrs. Leslie Cartcr'9 Ions run In David
Belasco'a "Du Harry," which ended tem
porarily with last night's performance at
the Criterion Theater, New York, stands
an the record not only of tills but of many
seasons. Perhaps It may more justly lie
counted the one 'trttfmph" of the year.
The encasement began on Christmas night,
and. therefore, with the close of the pres
ent week. It will have achieved exactly
twenty-'hree week3 of prosperity in New
York City alone. As Mrs. Carter and "Du
tJaWtwHI continue at the New UMasco
.Theater, September l, for probably another
;tw&yu weeks, the career of both Htar and
play "will far surpass that of any prodm -tlbh
In the history of the American stage.
On tho basds of figures alone, considering
th$ limited capacity of the Criterion
(Theater. Mrs. Carter and Mr. Belaseo will
ftotd the season's first honors. As Du Barry
MrV Carter has played t 22U.O0O people.
'and to cash receipts sliRhtl exceeding
C06.0p0. For the llrst eisht weeks at the
Criterion "standees" were packed Into
pvery available Inch of space. About that
time the Flro Commissioners became ac
tive and the rale of standing-room tickets
was forbidden. Thereafter the record at
tht Criterion was somewhat remarkable in
itsjway. As this theater rigidly obeyed the
8ra law?, and as no free seats were ever
iMUed. the nightly receipts of Mrs. Carter's
performances did not vary a dollar. Since
pfrf.dash value of the house represents the
absolute seating capacity, neither more nor
!, the box-office returns have remained
Jh"4 lame to a penny, night after night,
tlcf-el the eighth week. Thus, of course,
efton'week's receipts have held strictly at
the, same level namely, the. literal capacity
of 'the house for a series of seven per
formances. Of Mrs. Carter's personal share
in too work of the play It Is interesting to
know' that the part of Du Barry is the
longest ever written. She speaks more
words than any player ever before uttered
upbrf the stage In a single character.

has been in pursuit of these artistic little
embellishments that book lovers worship
and now she has a notable collection. Her
own book plate was engraved by S. !.
Smith of Boston, a noted designer and en
graver of book plates, after her own ideas.
Miss Gliser recently received from Count
Ilnlngen-Westerburg. written frcm Wag
da, his villa near Munich, in Bavaria, a
pressing Invitation to send hi-r book plate
to his collection. Tho Count is said to be
the greatest collector of book plates in the
world. In his letttr to Miss Glaser he says:
"My collection, containing 13.M copies,
ranging from H70 to lJt is the largest of
the- whole European Continent and the most
Important In the world. It is going arter
my death Into the Germanic Museum. Nu

dians of "The Hall of Fame." now running
at the New Yoik Theater, in Xew York,
was married Friday in Philadelphia to Miss
Georgia Kelly, one of the comediennes of
the New York Stock Company. The mar
riage was a surprise to tne friends and
fellow-performers of the happy couple, in
asmuch as neither of them had given any
hint of matrimonial Intentions, although It
was well known that MacAvoy was paying
maiked attention to Miss Kelly.
Mr. Mansfield has set speculation at rest
regarding his forthcoming production ot
"Julius Caesar" by announcing that he will

in the system. There is an antidote for this awful
poison ; a reliable, certain and permanent cure for
Contagious Blood Poison and that remedy is
S. S. S. the greatest of all blood purifiers, and an
experience of fifty years has proven it to be a true
specific for this vilest of all human diseases, which
not oul' threatens the life of the one contracting
it, but is transmitted to posterity with more cer
tainty than Cancer or Consumption.
Wiry should 3-011 continue the Mercury aud 1
Potash treatment, when by so doing you are only 1
complicating the disease b- burdening the blood
with another poison, which in time will produce a
lontr train of evil consequences. '
About three years ago I had a se.Tr.re case of Con
tagious Wood Poison, and tried doctors -without benefit,
so I concluded to go to Hot Springs. After remaining
there some time the sores and eruptions left and appa
rently the disease was cured, and I left for home. In
about three months after leaving the Springs the troubla
came back worse than ever. I had often heard of S. S. S.
and wrote for your boot. At that time I -was enable to
work and had lost flesh until I did not look likethesama
person. I began taking S. S. S. soon after I heard front
you, and in a short time found to my great joy that every
sign of the disease was gone, and I had gained 32 pounds;
I now weigh 10 pounds more than I ever did.
Tiptonville, Tenn. G. P. GIISSON,
S. S. S. being purely vegetable, leaves no bad after-effects, but invigorates the -whole
sj-stem while cleansing the blood of the virus. S. S. S. is the only known antidote for Con
tagious Blood Poison the only medicine that is able to unmask this venomous reptile and
drive it out of the blood. It has rescued thousands from the clutches of this horrible malady,
arter lucrcury, roiasn, not opnngs and everytning else had
failed to cure, and it will do as much for j'ou. The idea that
Contagious Blood Poison is incurable, or must run its course
in spite of all human efforts to stop it, is the veriest nonsense.
S. S. S. does cure it radically and permanently', removing all
traces of the original disease from the blood and system, as
well as the evil effects of the Mercury and Potash, ii toti
are a victim of Contagious Blood Poison, no matter what may be your present condition, whether
the disease has just started or has reached a more dangerous stage, begin S. S. S. and a thorough
and lasting cure is an absolute certainty.
