The company that will be seen in its several characters ia said to be of unusual excellence and our local amuse ment seekers are promised a good play, will acted and above all thoroughly staged, for all of the scenic embellishment of the play is earned by the company. Darkest Russia bids fair to bo a good, substantia, meritorious entertainer. characterization of a difficult and exacting role.

A Westminster Soldier. The following interesting letter has just been received by Mrs. R. D. Farr of West minster from her son Charles, who is with the 14th United States Infantry in the Philippines : Ymas, P. I., J vast 30, '99 Dear Mother : I received your letter ot the 20th of May last night, also yours of April 21 about two weeks ago. I have heard peo ple tell ot the hardships ot the civil war, but doc't think they can compare with what we have been through in the last few weeks. It will do no good to tell just how and what we have suffered, especially during the first days out. I will relate just one instance. We broke camp at five in the morning and marched steadily until a little alter noon. We stopped then for two hours, that is, what there was It ft of us. There were nine companies in our regiment, each with over 90 men when we started ; five stacked arms with only 21 men ; the rest were obliged to full out on the way be cause ot the heat. I expected my turn would come to fall out, but my old foot ball pluck stayed with me and I stacked my gun at the head of the line at night. We marched in skirmish line over three miles looking for the enemy. We had no water to drink and the ground was covered with thick grass partially blown down, making the walking very difficult. We had a big battle and lost 14 men out of our rrgimenl and 20 wounded. We were un der fire for four hours. We had to lay in the hot sun for two hours and then swim a river with our guns in boat ; soon after the sun set and then we were cold and wet. Before morning it was raining like a cloud burst. I went to sleep on a bamboo root with my bead in a puddle of water ; when I woke op the camp waa afloat. It has rained steadily tor the last 48 hours and the rice fields are all afloat. I expect to start for home about Septem ber 1 ; will let you know as soon as I arrive in the state. Your loving son, Cuas. N. Farr.

Many a live dairyman wonders how many cows he should have in his herd to make a cream separator a profitable machine for him. He can easily make this calculation himself. He, of course, wants a sep arator that will not wear out, one that will not be expensive in the way of repairs, and one that will be easy to operate. Undoubtedly THE SHARPLES SEPARATOR fills all these requirements. After finding the price of the sized machine he wants, he should determine the exact amount ot income from the dairy. This will be increased the year through about twenty per. cent through the use of Sharpies Separator ; and in addition the dairyman will have his skim milk warm and sweet, and in such con dition that it will have a feeding value of at least fifteen cents per hundred pounds. With these facts in mind, it will be found that the separator is a profitable investment with as few as four or five good cows. THE SHARPLES COMPANY, Canal and Washington Sts , Chicago P. M.
