The meeting lasted about two hours and the. subject was thoroughly dis cussed,' and one of the objectionable posters, a large one, which have been displayed principally In the outskirts of the city and which was tine principal factor in raising the hornet's nest about the unsuspecting promoters of the play, was exhibited at the meeting.

F.NTEIlTAlNSIEyTS. New Haven Theater, One of the biggest hits In a spec tacular farce comedy way is that hu morous affair called "McFadden's Flats," which will be the attraction at the New Haven theater to-night, Tues day and Wednesday nights and at the Wednesday matinee. It comes this time brought up to date in every way, and as a scenic produc tion of the kind has few if any equals. Every act this year is newly designed and painted, the" chorus of attractive girls has been increased in number, and re-costumed in a very costly fash ion that lends beauty and grace to the " ensembles; besides all this the piece has been cleverly rearranged and new comedy inserted together with other bright infusions. The funny dwarfs and their many complications; the travesty on Sousa and his band; the laughable fire department and unman ageable Ibilly goat all serve to make one laugh, while the stairs leading to the upper floors of the hotel will insist upon upsetting everyone. The special ties and musical arrangements are charmingly morticed in at convenient opportunities. The Bridgeport Post says of the performance given there last week: Ever since McFadden's Flats were transferred from the comic sheet of a Sunday edition to the stage they have ibeen a source of pleasure to the patrons of the theater, hut like many other creations they have gradually drawn away from the traditions of the artist of the funny sheet and partaken more and more of the up-to-date musical comedy. Last night's performance at Smith's theater reminds one more of George Cohan In Johnny Jones than of the funny sheet, and were it not for the dwarfs, Alex and George, and one or two of the old-time characters, one might Imagine that it was something away from its original conception. ' New songs, new jokes, new costumes and new ensembles make the produc tion fresh, and it is a decided improvement- avo tVm enitprta.inment nrnvlded last season. The chorus Is well drilled' and is a material addition to the work of the principals. Many of the situa tions are ludicrous, some horse play is introduced, but as a whole the audi ence Is cleased. and the members of the company take their respective parts credibly. Soeeialties are introduced by Jos Deming. Billy Barry, Mamie Tucker, Billy Clark, Charles Gramlich, Flor ence Goodklm, Mary Baker and the chorus, and by Clarke and Florette. They also take the principal parts. Curtis and Harry Speck, the midgets, as Alex and George are laughable, put on a boxing bout, perform as an ele phant and otherwise amuse the oudi ence. The German band led by Charles Gramlich causes considerable merri ment "Moonlight" Is prettily Bung and with pleasing effeot. "Why Don't You Try," piquant and saucy is also a hit. "The Girl from U. S- A." "The Sand Man" and "Cheyenne" are tune ful and well presented. When "Texas is presented at the New Haven theater next Thursday night, April 12, and for the remainder of the week, the patrons of that house will witness a T.estern play of truly western type. The object of the management has been to take the auditor away from the mimic stage and place him in the midst of those people of the .plains whose life of honor and daring is ever a source of wonder and amusement to the outside world. , : Everything that could tend to lend atmosphere to the play has been care fully attended to. The scenery is a faithful reproduction of Buckhead Ranch, where the scene .of the play is laid. The costumes were obtained there, and many, of themhave seen ac tual service. The electrical effects are used with discretion, and when the cur tain rises on Buckhead Ranch one al most feels the torrid heat that seems to shimmer over the ranch-house, situ ated far out thern In the desert. The newspaper world and the public who have witnessed "Texas' claim that It is the truest and best exppstion of western life yet give to the stage, and predict that int will live long, with "The Old Homestead," " Way Down 'East," and other plays of this charac ter, whose worth, though probably not dramatic, seem to hold the attention of the public year after year by their reality and simplicity. The playwright, J. Maudlin Felgl, is thoroughly en rapport with the life ot the plains, a life which .affords the fullest opportunities for effective dra matic writing. Deeds of prowess, cun ning and endurance, such are wit nessed on the ranches of the south west, always make a powerful appeal to the auditor. Such plains heros as Buffalo Bill, Wild Bill, Kit Carson and Texas Jack have always received the exultant recognition .of every American whose patriotism extends from the heart of the soil of his nativity. It is, therefore, not to be wondered at that "Texas" has 'been such a stit'lng suc- SKETCH OF THE LIFE And a True Story of How the Vegetable Compound Had Its Birth and flow the "Panic of W Caused it to be Offered for Public 5a!e in Drug Stores. This remarkable woman, whose maiden name was Estes, was born in Lynn, Mase., February 9th, 1819, com ing from a good old Quaker family. For tome years she taught school, and became known as a woman of an alert and investigating mind, an earnest seeker after knowledge, and above all, possessed of a wonderfully sympa thetic nature. In 1843 she married Isaac Pinkham, a builder and real estate operator, and their early married life was marked by prosperity and happiness. They had four children, three sons and a daughter. In those good old fashioned days it was common for mothers to make their own home medicines from roots and herbs, nature's own remedies calling in a physician only In specially urgent cases. By tradition and ex perience many of them gained a won derful knowledge of the curative prop erties of the various roots and herbs. Mrs. Pinkham took a great interest in the study of roots and herbs, their characteristics and power over disease. She maintained that just as nature so bountifully provides in the harvest- fields and orchards vegetable foods of all kinds ; so, if we but take the pains to find them, in the roots and herbs of the field there are remedies ex pressly designed to cure the various Ills and weaknesses of the body, and it was her pleasure to search these out, and prepare simple and effective medi oines for her own family and friends. Chief of these was a rare combina tion of the choicest medicinal roots and herbs found best adapted for the cure of the ills and weaknesses pecu liar to the female sex. and Lvdia E.Pink ham's friends and neighbors learned that her compound relieved and cured and it became quite popular among tnem. All this so far was done freely, with out money and without prloe, as a labor of love. But ia 1873 the financial crisis struek Lynn. Its length and severity were too much for the large real estate interests of the Pinkham family, as this class or business suffered most from fearful depression, so when the Centen nial year dawned it found their prop erty swept away. Some other source oi income naa to De louna. At this point Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound was made known to the world. The three sons and the daughter. with their mother, combined foroes to oess. Messrs. Broadhurst & Currie have engaged a splendid cast, com Misa Mabel Dixey and Charles D. Co burn, supported by Louis Thiel, Hat tie Foley, Ernest Allen, Frederick E. Duff, Howard Messimer, and others well known in the theatrical world. In dialogue, in action, in, scenic display, "Texas" as a stage production, is fin ished to a nicety. Holiday matinee Fri day. Regular matinee Saturday. Poll' New Toeateft Tom Nawn and his company will hold one of the double-feature numbers of the Poll bill this week with the com edy playlet entitled "A Touch of Na ture." It U said to be even better than "Pat and the Genii," in which he made such a tremendous hit In this city lat season. Nawn is a comedian, He has a quiet way of making comedy, but It is none the less effective. - W. C. Toungson's Spook Minstrels are to hold the other headline, and in pre senting this act Manager Poll is to pre sent one of the latest novelty hits of the season. It will be a combination of moving pictures and minstrelsy in a way that will be both pleasing and unique. The electrograph Is used In part of the performance, while a quin tette of excellent minstrels will make up the second part. The introduction of minstrel melody will be no small fea ture of this number. ' . Jack Mason's pretty Society Belles are another big treat. Miss Lillian Do herty, formerly of the well-known Do Herty sisters, a favorite vaudeville team, will head the Belles. It is to be beautifully staged. The Mlllmau Trio, the slickest aerial artists in the world, with their wonder ful tight-wire act, are to furnish some thing out of the ordinary in vaudeville this week. H. W. Tre Denlck and Tekia, Farm, two former members of the Schumann Helnk Opera company, are to present a comic opera bit of nonsense, entitled "The Pearl and the Lobster," which will introduce both principals In conge nial roles. The three Leightons, formerly with Dockstader's minstrels and known as fine singing comedians, are to be heis They are the' authors of "Ain't Dat a OF LYDIA E. PINKHAM restore the family fortune. "They argued that toe medicine which was so good for their woman friends and neighbors was equally good for the women of the whole world. The FinkhamB had no money, and little credit. Their first laboratory was the kitchen, where root and herbs were steeped on the stove, gradually filling a gross of bottles. Then oame the question of selling it, for always before they had given it away freely. They hired a Job printer to run off some pamphlets setting forth the merits of the medi cine, now called Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, and these were distributed by the Pinkham sons in tsoston, Isew lork, and Brooklyn. The wonderful curative properties of the medicine were, to a1 great estent, self-advertising, for whoever used it recommended it to others, and the de mand gradually increased. In 1877, by combined efforts the fam ily had saved enough money to com mence newspaper advertising and from that time the growth and success of the enterprise were assured, until to day Lydia E. Pinkham and her Vege table Compound have become house hold words everywhere, and many tons of roots and herbs are nsed annu ally in its manufacture. Lydia E. Pinkham herself did not live to see the great success of this work. She passed to her reward years ago, but not trill she had provided means for continuing her work as effectively as she could have dona it herself. During her long and eventful espe rlenoe she was ever methodical in her w ork and she was always careful to pre serve a record of every case that came to her attention. The case of every sick woman who applied to her for advice and there were thousands received careful study, and the details, includ ing symptoms, treatment and results were recorded for future reference, and to-day these records, together with hundreds of thousands made since, are available to sick women the world over, and represent a vast collabora tion of information regarding the treatment of woman's ills, which for authenticity and accuracy can hardly be equaled in any library in the world. With Lydia E. Pinkham worked her dauc-hter-in -law, the present Mrs. Pinkham. She was carefully instructed in all her hard-won knowledge, and for years she assisted her in her vast correspondence. To her hands naturally fell tha direction of the work when its origina tor passed away. For nearly twenty five years she has continued it, and nothing in the work shows when the first Lydia E. Pinkham dropped her pen, and the present Mrs. Pinkham, now the mother of a large family, took it up. With woman assistants, some as capable as herself, the present Mrs. Pinkham continues this great work,and probably from the office of no other person have so many women been ad vised how to regainnealth. Hick wo men, this advice is "Yours for Health" freely given if you only write to ask for it. Such is the history of Lydia E. Pink ham's Vegetable Compound ; made from simple roots and herbs ; the one great medicine for women's ailments, and the fitting monument to the noble woman whose name it bears. Shame?" and "There is a Dark Man Coming With a Bundle." Irene Lee, the English comedienne, known as the "Girl with the Trousers," will be here, and the electrograph with a number of new motion pictures will close' the bill. SUCCESSFUL CONCERT. In Aid of St. Mary's Rectory Fund at Poll's Last Night. Poll's theater was crowded last night by a large and delighted audtence. The concert, which was one of the most successful given in 'New Haven for some time, was for the benefit of the rector's fund of St ' Mary's R, C. church. It is expected that the con cert will yeld about $1,000 for the fund, and the money will toe used for the purpose of building a new rectory to take the place of the present parochial residence on the corner of Temple and Grove streets. The old building has quite a history to it. It has got to be in rather a dilapidated condition, and is Inadequate for the needs, of the par ish, and is therefore to be pulled down, and a new butlding erected. The fol lowing was the programme of the eve ning: 1 Hungarian Rhapsodie, No. 6, for pi ano, Liszt; James Errlco. Recitation, "Pauline Pavlovna," T. B. Aldrlch, Miss May Jean Colt.

When Vo liva angrily exclaimed "I will see that all the costly furniture and the expen sive library adorning Dowle's Zion City residence and which were purchased that hypocrite while many of his peopie were in need of food, are sold and the money turned into Zion storehouses. ' Mrs. Dowie half rose and witi her voice and hands loudly applauded the words. As an illustration Vollva cited his own experience in Zion church. He de clared that he had been compelled to keep himself and family on $50 a month allowed him by Dowle and that out of this monthly salary he had been com pelled to turn over a tenth to tiio church. While receiving $50 a month Voliva declared that he had been send ing to the storehouse at Zion City $1,700 every month and that other deacons had done fully as well as he had for ttio church. He then asked what had become of all thin money that has been flowing into Zion for many years. Voliva declared that If Dowie on his arrival in Zion City on Tuesday thought to frighten Voliva into submis sion, Dowie never was more mistaken in his life. He requested all present to keep away from the railway station next Tuesday when Dowle reached Zion City, and they agreed to. After the meeting the 250 Zion guards employed to keep order in the city were sworn in to support Vollva In all his undertakings and all took the oath of allegiance, except one. A message was received from Dowle this afternoon stating that he would reach Zion City Tuesday morning and ordering Shiloh house, his residence in Zion City, to be prepared for his home coming. Vollva, after reading this message, said Dowle would not be al lowed to enter the door of what former ly was his Zion City home. SOME MEDICAL FALLACIES. A doctor was pointing out medical fallacies-4he wrong ideas about things medical that many people hold. "One fallacy," he said, "Is that beef tea is nourishing. It is nothing but water In which certain pleasant and exhilarating meat salts are dissolved. Tou would starve to death on beef tea, the same as on whisky or on coffee. "Another fallacy is that alcohol whisky warms the body. Alcohol lowers the temperature. It chills, in stead of warming. , Hence it is of no use whatever as a guard against cold. "A ithlrd fallacy is that one egg con tains as much nourishment as a pound of meat. Sick people without appetite think complacently that If they take an egg or two a day ttney are doing well. As a matter of fact, they are doing anything but well. They must re member, if they are substituting eggs for meat, that eight eggs, not one, are required to equal one meat pound. Then, there's the liver fallacy. Many as soon as their stomach get out of or der, begin to treat their liver. But the liver is a dangerous thing to treat un less one understands it, for there are over ninety distinct liver troubles, and wtiia is good for one of them may be bad for all the res,t. ...
