thefts, testimony being given by
Oflioer Huff and others.
Justice Fort, in charging the jury,
told them to be very careful to keep
their Udeliborations secret. Ho said
they had no rigid by oath, affidavit or
otherwise to make known their doings
and that one of the nnploasant things
they had to contend with was the im
portunities of persons who tried to
influence them to indict or not indict
partios they were interested in. The
Justice donbtlesB bad in mind the

covering him completely with the

This protection and the force of ex

The man’s eyes were glued together
and it was necessary to remove a great
quantity of the lead-like preparation
before he could seo. Some of the fly

was fastened to his head as if by
nails. His mnstacne and face lmd a
fine coating of the stuff. His clothes
were also covered.
Babbit metal is very bright and the

A FLANNEL BLOUSE.
All tlio shops now are soiling tho
very ilniulies of flannels for making
blouses, from tho pale pastel shades
to the gay Roman striped effects. As
the majority of those flannels wash,
it is woll not to make the blonse too
elaborate and allow for shrinkage.
The nbovo design is good to follow in
making a flannel blouse.
Both back ami front arc box-plentod,
with the pleats all but meeting, and
stitched on the outside about a quart
er of an inch from the edge. The
tops of the slovos are pleated in the
same way. The cuffs, collar, and
j shoulder straps, aro trimmed with
Frank Daniels in “The Office Boy.”
Tlio lem ark able success of tlio clever
comic opcia comedian, Frank Daniels in
Charles li. Dillingham's production of
the musical comedy “The Ollier Boy” at
the Victoria Theatre, New’ York, is a
direct contradiction of the stories of hard
times in the theatrical business that have
been so persistently circulated this season.
Jt also furnishes an object lesson to those
purveyors of amusement who, while de
voting thought and money to their pro
ductious, overlook the most essential cle
ment of success, a good play.
“The Odko lioy” is first ami foremost
a splendid entertainment. . Though now
in the second month of its metropolitan
run the business which it is doing is just
as big as it was the Hist week, w hick was
practically the capacity of the Victoria
Theatre. This is due to the f act that the
audiences are amused from the moment
the curtain rises until ic falls at the end
j the ] e forirauco. There is no slacking
of the actiou ami no dull moments due
to a desire to display certain costumes
or exploit a scenic setting. Manager Dil
lingham shows in a practical way that in
a practical way that ill his opinion the
play is the thing, and while the stage set
rings arc adequate and artistic and tu
308tomes tasty and pleasing to the eye,
[lie entertainment itself is the vital thing
ind nothing is allowed to interfere with
it. T here was not a discordant note in
the volume of praise that was showered
upon “Thi Office Boy” when it was first
presented in New York. One of the great
iailies said: “The music and coined}
nave the snap ami freshness of early No
vember -- the kind that sives life new
',est, makes tlie clucks glow and quickens
die step, It is like a renewal of youth”.
Frank Daniels himself has never scored
more strongly than he has in “Ths Office
l>oy”. llis amusing personality is placed
i n id the happiest surroundings, his l uu
s infectious, his songs hit the right spot
iiid laughter follows his every speech and
