J CITY COURT CASE'S. ; The docket in the city court yesterday morning comprised a long list of cases which kept Judge iMathewson busy for a considerable length of time in dis posing of them. The cases for the most part were unimportant and comprised IT'S DIFFERENT Since Coffee Left. A Wisconsin lady says of coffee: "From childhood I had been used to drinking coffee, and grew very fond of it: ' "When In course of time I began to suffer from stomach and bowel troubles with accompanying headaches, pains in the chest and loss of appetitle and flesh, I was slow to suspect that coffee was the cause. My sister, who had used and knew the virtues of Postum Food Coffee, persuaded me to try it. I gave tip the old kind of coffee with re luctance, thinking that I would never find a hot table drink that I would relish so well. "I was therefore most agreeably sur prised to discover that Postum, when properly made thoroughly boiled, was so palatable. It proved to be a rich, creamy delicious beverage, soothing and quieting to the nerves and health ily invigorating- I also found it nu tritious, as the old kind of coffee never was. "Postum began to help me from the very beginning, and I was thus encour aged to continue its use, until, I am happy to say, It landed me safely in Wellville, where I have been for three years and where I propose to remain. I find it a glorious and happy place to be in.. "I never before had such good health as I have now. No trace of my former ailments remain, I have put on weight until I am almost 'fleshy,' and my com plexion has resumed the bloom of my girlhood days. . "My mother lost her life (as I can see now) through coffee drinking. Her ailments wer precisely the same as mine were, but no one suspected at that time that they were due to coffee, and she continued to use it, her health growing steadily worse and worse till death put an end to her sufferings. If I had only known then what I do now, she might be living to this day. "My father was also a great coffee drinker and tobacco user as well, and, I am sorry to say, too fond of liquor. - He lives with me and I have taught him todrinkPostum with the result that he uses much less tobacco, and has en tirely lost his appetite for strong drink, to the great improvement of his health. I feel most sincerely grateful to th dis coverer of Postum Food Coffee." Name given by Postum Co., Battle Crek, Mich. Read the little book, "The Road to iWtllville," in packages, cases of drunkenness, breach of the peace, etc Frank E. MoGann was fined $2 for throwing snowballs In the street, John Kennedy, charged with, drunkenness, was fined $7.

In "Cloverdeil,"", the latest comio opera before the public, and which is to be presented at the Hyperion on WMnesday evening, the 14th Inst., the a'.dien ) will have an opportunity to enjoy ; ' opera in which the lyrics and music "ave as much , to do with the story have the spoken lines, which is, of course, essential in true' comic opera. One or two selections from the lyrics will serve to illustrate this fea ture. .-. "Mrs. Blossom," who as postmistress has unusual facilities for acquiring general information about her neigh bors, in a well-meant effort to Justify her occasional resort to extreme meas ures, explains in the course of her first song that From the simplest way to gather news I have found myself debarred, For the public lately does not use The common postal card. So the letter sealed I have to read, , Altho' it Rives me pain; But when I've got the news I need, I seal it up again.

Seat sale Wednesday. New Haven Theater. "Queen of the White Slaves" opened a successful three nights and Wednes day matinee engagement at the New Haven theater last night. There was a crowded house, and the audience was enthusiastic in the extreme. The fine acting of the superb cast brought forth t-tearty plaudits all through the play. The magnificent scenery and' the many exciting climaxes came in for a good share of the audience's attention, and several curtain calls were given during the progress of the peace- The play is a stunner and worthy the praise that has been bestowed on it wherever it has been played. It will be presented again to-night, Wednesday matinee and evening and early application for seats is desirable. The story of the play in brief Is as follows: "Queen of the White Slaves'' Is said not only not only to be a great melo drama from a dramatic standpoint, but a production of marvelous wonders. Novelties of the most expensive and sensational description are promised, aside from a good play, a big scenlo production and a large and competent cast. In brief it may be said that "Queen of the White Slaves" tells the story of a beautiful girl, portrayed by Miss E. Hayden Cunan, the most beau tiful woman on the American stage, who Is abducted from h?r home. This young woman is rescued through the efforts of a young and brave detective and a heroic young girl who has escap ed herself from the clutches of these abductors. The love, interest in the play is very strong; as is also the -comedy element, and the play Is so written that one sensation which sets the au dience In a frenzy of enthusiasm is only followed by another until the final cur tain falls on an unusually clever, and happy denouement. " " 1 GAY NEW YORK. With a galaxy of reputable merry makers and vocal celebrities as is an nounced with "Gay New York," the musical comedy of skill, character and advance which will regale our lovers of spirited fun and o,u&lity-of music at .the New Haven' Theatre next Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights and at the matinee Saturday. This extremely suc cessful adaptation from a German source of farcical supremacy, one that can produce incontrovertible testimony concerning its overpowering Berlin tri umphs, and has an American career of absolute soundness to stimulate inter est in its behalf, it is not to be won dered at that its advent here is regard ed with unqualified pleasurable de'ighL. Dan Mason, Louise Sanford, Edward B. Adams, Joseph F. Willard, Theodore Peters,, Isatrrys Bartlett, Lillian Moerlein, Charles E. Foraman iind Ed ward Brennen are but a few of the tnany distinguished entertainers who rival each other in the fast and furious scenes of wholesome fun and in the rendering of many captivating songs. There are upwards of a half a hundred, mostly pretty, talented girls, nsccsaary towards the picturesque as well as in genious presentation of "Ga; New York," and it is claimed without fear of contradiction that a higher 1 and more praiseworthy aggregation of co medians and singers werj nevr brought together for such a commen dable purpose- I. O. U. Kolb and Dill will be seen at the New Haven Theatre in the musical agsurdl ty "I. O. U.," which comes direct from an eight weeks' run at the Marquam Grand In Portland, where thousands have laughed and praised these funny fellows and their splendid company in "I. O. U." Poll's Net Theater. The new bill which opened yesterday afternoon at Poll's Is a three-feature aggregation. "The Little Black Man," the latest European sensation, heads he list. He is an East Indian, and has been the craze of late In vaudeville. MeWatters, Tyson and company In an elaborately staged number styled "Vaudeville," are the second big fea ture, and the favorite Elllnore Sisters, with their uproarlosly funny number, will make up the third feature. From the advance sale a large audience saw this afternoon's performance. The rest of the bill has Marie Dupont and her company in their charming comedy act, "Left at the Post," Miss Josephine Davles, a comedienne, the Italian Trio of singers, Coutere and Gillette with their acrobatics, and the electrograph make up the offering. Friday matinee is again announced as a souvenir matinee for, the ladies at this theater- Thousand seats at the daily matinees for ladles at ten cents. Reserved eats sold In advance. Tel ephone 192. Box office open at 9 a. m. daily. JOSEPHINE COHAN COMING. Local admirers of the Four Cohans will be interested In the announcement that Miss Josephine Cohan, who was one of the chief characters in thai splendid entertaining family, has for saken the quartette and is to star in vaudeville under her own management. Miss Josephine, who was seen here in some of the Cohan productions, has hosts of friends. She is bright and clever, and was one of the liveliest members of the group. This determin ation on her part to seek further glory among the ranks of the vaudevilllans came because of the many offers she has had to star separately In the vau deville tours from leading managers of the country. Will M. Cressey and Fred Niblo, who by the way is the husband of Miss Co han, have secured the material for a vaudeville sketch for Miss Josephine, and have styled it "Friday the Thir teenth," thus combining into one title about all the misfortune that can at one time befall anyone. This sketch has had a few preliminary perform ances, and has been a pronounced win ner. .Miss Josephine Cohan Is now 'jook lng over the Poll circuit, and will short ly be seen In this city at Poll's New theater. BIJoa Theater. CAMILLE AT THE BIJOU The Stock company presented "Ca mllle" at both performances yesterday and pleased the patrons of the theatre with their fine performances; then Al exander Dumas wrote "Camille," who gave to the stage an emotional drama that was intensely Interesting, and has a refined atmosphere; while it Is French, it is not of the resque order, but tells the story in a most pleasing manner. Miss Ortrude Shlpman, aa Camille, won the hearts of her audi ences by her clever portrayal of this most trying part, and Mr. Lawrence B. McOIll, as Armand, was excellent; the work of Misses Harriet Barton, Edith Crollus and Nan Hanson was all that could be desired. Messrs. Harry Lang don, James Gordon, Everett Butter field, and Alfred Bldwell were all even ly least and done credit to the roles as signed them, and in the part of Na nlne Miss Margaret Hagen was very much at home. The distinguishing fea ture of this company, and of every member of It, is the earnestness with which every role is assumed; they put their while and best efforts into their work, and the result Is a most satisfac- tory performance. There Is nothing 1 cheap about this organization except ! the prices. The public have paid more morey to witness performances in the past by other organizations that could not compare with this company, and the New Haven people are taking ad vantage of the opportunity offered them in producing such high class plays thdt they are crowding the houses daily. Matinees are given dal ly; ladles ten cents- Friday matinee; souvenirs will be given out to all who attend. CENTURY WHIST CLUB.
