FOOD HELPS In Management of n R. H. Speaking of food a railroad man says: "My work puts me out in all kinds of weather, subject to irregular hours for meals and compelled to eat all kinds of food. ' "For seven years I was constantly troubled with indigestion, caused by eating heavy, fatty, starchy, greasy, poorly cooked food, such as are most accessible to men in my business. Gen erally each meal or lunch was followed by distressing pains and burning sen sations in my stomach, which destroy ed my sleep and almost undfltted me for work. My brain was so muddy and foggy that it was hard for me to dis charge my duties properly. "This lasted till about a year ago, when my attention was called to Grape Nuts food by a newspaper ad and I con cluded to try it. Since then I have used Grape-Nuts at nearly every meal and sometimes between meals. We railroad men have little chance to prepare our food in our cabooses, and I find Grape Nuts mighty handy, for it is ready cooked. "To make a long story short, Grape Nuts has made a new man of me. I have no more burning distress in my stomach, nor any other symptom of in digestion. I can digest anything so long as I eat Grape-Nuts, and my brain works as clearly and accurately as an engineer's watch, and my old nervous troubles have disappeared entirely."

"The Earl and the Girl," the latest Casino, New York, success which lately terminated a run of over 200 nights at that theater comes to the Hyperion theater on Wednesday night for one performance. Eddie Foy and the rest of the original cast will be seen here. It has been said that one song tut in a musical play or opera insures suc cess. If this is true then "The Earl and the Girl" mus have Its success as sured as there are twenty-two songs introduced, three of which are the big gest hits of the season. These three are "How'd You Like to Spoon iWfcb Me," "Wont You Change Your Name from Miss to Mrs.," and "Won't You Marry me?" Seat sale to-day again. "KELLAR." The baffling illusions performed by that wonderful magician, Kellar," In former years, were admittedly the most perplexing and mystifying examples of the necromancer's art every offered, but this season all of Mir. Kellar's pre vious efforts have been surpassed, as he enters still further Into the weird field of oriental occultism. t Disdaining the use of a darkened stage, and not resorting to covers, Wires, traps or other similar subter fuges, he presents on a fully lighted stage the most wonderful example of occultsm ever done by any one. The gieat Kellar calls his newest il lusion "The Sailor, The iAVtch and the Enchanted Bonkey," and uses during its presentation six Intensely interest ing characters whom he causes to dis appear individually and to reappear at the most unlooked for time, and in the strongest conceivable places. This illusion illustrates a scene in an English village, one hundred years ago, and tells a beautiful story of a sailor boy's romance upon returning to his sweetheart, after a voyage to foreign shores. Many otliier bewildering, yet Interest ing illusions will also be presented In addition to a varied series of experi ments in sleight-of-hand. KeKllar at the Hyperion next Thursday evening. Seat sale Tuesday. New Haven Theater. "The Convict's Daughter,'" which will Ibe the attraction at the New Haven theater Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, March 29, 30, 31, and at the matinee Saturday, is said to ,be one of the best presented comedy dramas of fered to the theatergoing public, while in Incident and theme it is most power ful, every climax breaking with almost volcanic Intensity. So much, by way of introduction. To go into the play It self nothing can "be said to detract from its worth. In the entire company, from the actor who interprets the leading role down to the mere stage loiterers, there is not one single person who has been negligently selected or unintelll gently cast. This comedy drama, which lacks all the dramatic thunder of by gone day3, is new and unknown, but cannot remain so for Its magnificent staging at once becomes its herald and sounds its own alarm. Nothing has been sacrificed to appearances, for there is 'brought together a series pi incidents that hold the interests as had nothing that has come before it. , The situations, the motives, the characters commingle without the least jarring or tugging or straining, giving a pleasant finesse to a story that is said to be tak en from life. The climaxes develop quickly and break magnificently, while the lighter moments are as rolling as a Sousa march, the sentimental frag ments being truly natural and the com edy hits as sparkling as the lights "THE CONVICT'S DAUGHTER." which adorn the stage. Webster says the definition of the wcrd "tramp," as applied to a human being, is a "foot traveler; stroller; va grant; vagabond." Any one of the above terms would apply to "Weary Willie," the. tramp in "The Convict's Daughter," one of tEie most powerful dramatic plays by an American author ever produced in this country. But the author has departed from the old con ventional lines, and made the character a noble one, and on a higher grade than the usual stage tramp. The hero, or "philosophic tramp," as the author calls him, is skilled, determined, cool and rational. His very presence on the stage intensifies the dramatic scenes, and its brilliancy of dialogue and wealth of beautiful scenery has made the play one of the successes of the season. "BEHIND THE MASK." A play of the golden west, "Behind the Mask," is the attraction at the New Haven theater for ttwee nights and Wednesday matinee, commencing to-night. The author is Edmund Day, whose star is rising in the American dramatic firmament, as a result of the exceedingly clever construction and ex hllirating humor In the few plays that now stand to his credit. He writes American plays that have genuine character and absorb their audience in to tiie community and part of the coun try where the scenes are located. In "Behind the Mask," the western, people do riot use the claptrap melodrama jar gon nor dress in the conventional out landish manner of the border p!ayt The title, "Behind the Mask," does not re fer to a robber's device fr concealing his features, nor a fancy 111 costume, but to ithe social mask that ewne peo ple wear who seem eminently respect able but are desperate and criminal at heart. The central figure in Mr. Daly's play is John Gresham, formerly a ganlbler In a mining town and later, as a rich man, a member of the best society in his home city. He is worried by a secret, having shot his partner, in the early days, and apparently klllci him. He tries to live down the crime, by caring for the only living relative of his supposed victim of murder, a young woman. His older associates or ganize a sort of crime syndicate for all kinds of robberies and force Gresham to join. Thus tie eventually ecomes a plotter to rob a train on his own rail road, the one of which he is president A government detective sent to hunt down the crime syndicate falls in love with Gresham's daughter, and later finds out Gresham's double life. Some of the most picturesque scenery of Col orado is shown in the play, including the beautiful Georgetown Loop. Many of tiiie scenes are painted from photo graphs taken by the author. A carload of scenery is carried. Poll's Hen Inenter. Peter F. Dailey, the farmer Weber and Fields star and late start of "The Press Agent" company, is again in vaudeville. Manager Poll announces his engagement for the coming week at his new theater with the eight Dinah girls in one of the prettiest acts of the season. Dailey is always jolly and has new song hits and dances galore in any production he lends his name to. He is sure to be a record breaker for attendance at this theater. Dailey usually offers the latest in the song and comedy lines, and his musical numbers will be whistled a!bout town the coming week. As a special feature, Staley and Blr beck with their transformation scene accomplished in two seconds from the musical blacksmiths to an evening at home, will astonish those who delight in witnessing splendidly mounted acts. An olio of exceptional strength has been secured for all of next week and Includes such familiar names as Ray mond and Caverly, who will be amus ing as German comedians; Relchen's dog troupe will Ibe here.and the canine's are the best trained in the world. Leo Corelli, the Chinese dialect comedian, is coming as well as Relff brothers, the fashion plate dancers and Flske and McDonough with their sketch, Brock ey's Temptation. The electrograph will have a new series of the motion pictures to com plete the bill. BIJon Theater.

Nothing but laughs will be the motto for the entire week.

FOR CIVIC BETTERMENT, POWERFUL AND CONVINCING SERMON ET REV. DR. PHILLIPS. Delivered at the Church of the Re deemer Yesterday Forenoon Some Interesting Points Which Are Worth Studying Redemption of Our Cities from Partizan' Misrule a Question of Urgent Importance What Is Most Needed is a Revival of Conscience Of the Sense of Obligations Received Of Responsibility to Righteousness and the People Who Are Down Of Interest In Future Conditions Of a Purpose to Serve God by Serving God's World. Rev. Dr. Phillips preached a highly interesting sermon on "Civic Better ment" yesterday forenoon, at the Church of the Redeemer. Dr. Phillips' text was: St. Mark, ix, 60: "Salt is good; but if the salt have lost its saltness, where with will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves." Dr. Phillips said: This Illustration of the purifying and preservative function of Christian men, so impressed the dis ciples that three of the historians re port it in substantially the same lan guage. It is apt and pertinent Noth ing could more fitly describe the rela tion of right-thinking men to the com munity and the time. We are just now hearing much about civlo bettermen. Following the line suggested by the text, I wish to-day to formulate two or three propositions for which you are in no wise responsible. They express my own convictions. If you do not agree with me I am sure you will hear me patiently, for you have made this a free pulpit. The first proposition is: Our civic salt has lost Its saltness. The salt of pat riotism, of high civic ideals, of devotion to the best interests of the community has gone stale. What we have lost is the old time conscientiousness regard ing the public business. We do not feel the responsibility of the unit. This is perhaps one of the necessary results of government by party, but it is no less deplorable. The easy thing Is to leave everything to the party man agers and register their will at the polls; we have chosen this line of least resistance. I hold this proposition to bn self-evident and indisputable. It is not worth while to discuss causes; they are many the prime couse is doubt less our absorption in personal affairs in an age drunk with lust of wealth but the fact, the condition is what confronts us. The second proposition! is: It is vain to seek an answer to. ; the question, "wherewith will ye season it?" in pres ent methods of procedure. Rampant partizanlsm, has staled ithe salt of our civil sense; it is useless to look to par tizan methods for relief. When you and I, and others like us, get some real civic pride, not a mere ,, complacent senso of superiority because of our an cestors and our history) and couple with that a quick civic conscience, then, though the city may still be ruled by the dominant political party, the bosses und officials will not dare to misgovern, for they will know that they will bo brought to judgment by the people ir respective of party. It is not simply reform In municipal government that we need. , We need to beautify the city andmake it more convenient and desirable for all the people. We need (better housing for the poor, better care of children, the curb ing of corporate gree we have tho un sightly "cut" fastened upon us for all time because our citizens did not act together quickly and generously. Day nurseries, where working mothers may leave young children, kindergartens, simmer schools and playgrounds should not be left to private initiative, they are a legitimate part of the public school system. These and similar needs affect the life of the city; they have a large Influence in determining the char acter of future oltlzens; for none of them may we safely wait partizan ini tiative. Conscious that something is wrong, and irritated by (hat consciousness, we have all . fallen upon the men we call the Ibosses. The bosses are not all cor rupt men, or selfish men. They have the human craving for power and the shrewdness to see their opportunity and use It. It Is easy to abuse them, but, what, pray, under present partizan methods, would be our plight without them? We say, the bosses rule the primaries. The trouble Is not in the primaries, but in pernicious ante-primary activity. The bosses simply take the initiative that none of the rest of us is willing to take; then we raixe our holy hands and say, it is' no use going to the primaries, everything Is arrang ed beforehand! That condition will re. main so long as city affairs are consid ered a party matter rather than a bus iness proposition in which every citizen Is interested. We need a leader, some one who has initiative, who will rally us and develope a workable citizen's movement that alms at nothing but good government; but, let us remem ber, that leader will at once become a bess!

STREET, NHW HAVBQt party dictation; and, we must be sure they realize that they must serve the olty and not tnelr party. Tiiere is the root of the whole difficulty; serve the party! Keep the city in the column! Why? Why must we tie everything-, from tihe lowest ward office to the pres ident, together and make them all hold each other up Ilk a row of bricks? Wtmt difference does the rate bill, the tariff bill, the a3ge of the governor or the president make to the business cor poration you call a city? That heresy; serve the party! is deep, seated, and authoritative In the creed of the majority of men. It is the busy bacillus that has distorted the vision, perverted thinking, and paralyzed ()ho conscience of the politicians. The civic doctors must tell us how to kill that microbe or our case is hopeless. So It ng as they go on uttering impassion ed diatribes and voting the party tick etthe ibosses will smile and the game will proceed. Serve the city! The city above the party! is the watchword tiiat must be put in the hearts and on the lips of our youth. I am not a civio doc tor, but I offer this prescription as the only mean s of killing this bacillus, serve the party I Tho third proposition is: The commu nity is made up of individuals, it will be what they are. You Will never have civic purity, municipal efficiency, till you waken the individual and secure his re-salting with the old conscien tiousness regarding the public business. The seasoning needed is vital princi ple and devoted service revealed by wise and watchful men who have salt in themselves; that's the way the salt la to be seasoned. The only way to get reforms is to rally individual citizens for sustained, courageous action. So many men are brave after the event! So many are ready to Ihurrah over the returns who refuse to help the move ment. Men of intelligence, means and lei sure must take the initiative; they could do no better think for the city They profess to love. Oh, there are eo many little men; n-arrow, selfish, Indif ferent They never have a broad thought or a g-eneirtj emotion.

What will God do with such men if they do not repent their crass selfishness? We need another Dante to picture the inferno suited to them.. There is no question before us of such vital and urgent importance as the redemption of our cities from par tizan misrule. Civil service require ments are doing something, the idea of departments with! a single responsible head is doinr something, but the quick ening of the civic conscience of the in dividual Is what Is needed. Tlae in struction of voters regarding communi ty needs and possibilities is helpful, but back of that there must be a patient, persistent effort, to lead each voter to see the value and power. of the unit, to understand that a man is not a wholly independent unit, Ibut Is a dependent and component part of a larger 6rgan lsm, to throw aside personal amlbtlon and partizan prejudice and to encour age him to co-operate with others who want wfoat he needs and are banded together by a common purpose to serve the city. ' J ; . . :. The revival most needed is a revival of oonsclence, of the sens of obligation for benefits received, of responsibility to righteousness and the people who are, of interest in future conditions of a purpose to serve God toy serving Gol's world. There is such a revival coming. When American manhood has a problem to solve it is in the habit of solving that problem, and American manhood is perceiving that this is the great ethicali question of the hour. A great, atten tive meeting In Woolsey hall last Sun day, in a city accustomed to think that whatever Is of its own past is the best, indicates an encouraging interest in these themes. It means that civic con science is stirring, that men are per ceiving failure and waste, and we de ciding that we cannot depend on exist ing parties or on spasmodic non-partisan movements for specific purposes; it means a new consciousness that we must secure the sustained Interest of individual citizens wakened to a sense of responsibility; it means that tiMs old complacent Purttan community is pro posing to put itself in line with thought ful and progressive people everywhere.
