The "poison squad" at the II ihhcmann College was formed v< ry quietly. It came into existence on March I, and is under the direct supervision of Dr. Ed? mund T. Nesbit. director of the Hering laboratory of the college. Dr. Nesbit called h>> volunteers from among the students, lie said he wanted men who were willing to do something for the benefit of humanity at large, even* though it might be to their "'.vn discom? fiture. Twenty-five students volunteered. Of these fourteen of the most perfect physically were chosen, eleven as regular members of the squad and three as alter? nates. * * * * * * * For thirty days the members of the squad were given doses of caffeine .while Dr. Nesbit and his assistant i made per? sonal observations, taking the pulses and temperature of the mcmbi rs of the squad and making notes on their general physi? cal condition. It Was not until within the last few days that one u ember of the M]Uad weakened under the i xperimcnt to such an extent that it was necessary to send him to the hospital Dr. Nesbit refuses to reveal the name if?thc student who collapsed, but declare that through proper treatment immediately he soon recovered. * * * * The caffeine was administered in a solution and was mixed v. ith I he water the squad drank. 'I he studi \iU did not know when they were getting the caffeine. There were no stated limes for giving it, in orrler to keep the mind ol the student free from wony in order thai the physical i ondition might not be chant i 'i materially through the action 'if the brain. Uef?re joining the "poison quad'' each student had to sign.a release against any . action for damages against college. The laboratory was organized about fifteen month- ago with I >.- Nesbit as director, and almost immediately an ex? haustive .tudy was started to ascertain the destructive qualities ol >affeinc as used in food stuffs. * * * * 'I h': students-continued to live at the dormitories or at boarding houses! but they were required to take their meals .? the training table located in the hos p}l A near 'he diet kitchen Before each rn< il the temperature v..,. recorded, the :. .; < and piration v i m- t.ihcn and the blood previurc was tested.

Still, It Is even softer, for tho boys are both of a bolter sort than those In Goodman's play?better at heart and cleaner. As Mrs. Lo Moyne, a most wonderful reader, played It, with gentle, quiet dignity and tendot authority. It was very beautiful. Several changes In tho company mark the beginning- of the sixth week of Its seaeon. dir. Castle of the hair has gone, hair and all, and Herbert Curtis, a bettor aictor, has boon ongaged In his stead. As "walking ladles and gents" thoro have been employed thoso ster? ling players, tho Misses Crawford, Sir. Pillow and Mr. Render, who add Im? mensely to the numerical strength of tho company, as shown In full In tii>; first act. Indeed, ono MU3 Crawford played tho bit of a maid very accept? ably. Then, Instead of tho temporarily ? departed trombone. Mr. Wagner, who played the bass viol when Jefferson I was In Block at tho old Richmond The ate, has returned with his welcome In? strument Miss Neville Is still with tho company, but plays only a bit very properly. Miss La Verne essays the role made famous by Mrs. Lo Moyne. and little .Miss Patton has the Ingenue part of the sweetheart of the younger of the two boys, while Miss Ucurlmo plays "opposite" the elder. Mr. Tcuchoul. who gave such a lino performance of the servant in "The Prince Chap," Is not well lined with tho rolo or the mother's ol.l adorer, but plays smoothly and con? scientiously. Roth Mr. Scott and Mr. Mathews. who represented tho two boys, wore excet lent?us excellent as they were In "Mother." Mr. Scott has a sad, rather wearied expression, which peculiarly lits him for roles or this character, while Mr. Mathews has s.. much genu? ine talent as n "straight" light come? dian that he should succeed In faster company, after ho has whipped himself out of his Wiggling walk. Lo rimer Johnstonc, the stage direc? tor, appeared In tho character of an old< rly father, suitor and guardian, and played It In the manner of the old school, with a carefully poised pose for every word spoken by, or to. himself. rhe perfomanco was easy and with? out a hitch; tho waits wer.- short, and Ihy curtain fell before 10:30. j W.

After tho pictures. Gene Kiers, a comedy acrobat, appeared In the place of nice and McDonald, who were till? able to perform, owing to the illness of one of the teum. Dlers'a comedy was furnished largely by tho house drummer, who never fail* to cause one of his Innumerable traps to squeak, groan, grunt or toot at the proper time, while his one ?00.1 |/iok was a modification of the falling table act recently seen a't the Empire. Florence iBowes, singing comedienne. | Is a slender young woman with n ! small but well-trained voice. and with j a number of fresh, pretty costumes. | which she changes- very quickly. She "got over" her talking songs In good 1 style, and scored a hit. despite the handicap of whirling fans and day llu't'.t?permitted and admitted for the comfort of the audience. McMahon. Diamond and Clemence, a man and two women, presented a sinplng, talking and dancing act, dur? ing which one of tho women gave an j excellent Imitation of a loose-Jointed, J Inanimate scarecrow, falling al lover the stage with much acrobatic skill, ami flnaly falling backwards off tho stage Into the arms of a man. who jumped up from one of the seats In the front row. Hlhbert and Warren, "colored, but not born that way." were the head liners from the standpoint of the audience, Judging from the applause they reclved. One appears In regula? tion comedy blackface the other In a good "sporty" mulatto make-up. The sport takes the front off the stage plann and tears off Japrged slices of ragtime?all the whl'.e with his gloves on?while the other does a soft-shoe fiance that "kills 'cm." The bill closes with M'chnn's dogs. The dogs appear really to enjoy their work comic and acrobatic High Jump? ing by tho long, slender hounds more than counterbalances the little, of strained hlndlcg walking that is ex? hibited by the smaller dogs.

Helle Onra did some wonderful trapeze stvnts, and did them quickly and well. Will Coieman la the week's monolo-.lst, and a good one, with a happy line of puns and lokelets. The O'Connor sisters sex? tet do most of the singing, and take well with the people on the other side of the footlights in popular and near classical repertoire. Johnson,' Howard and Lezette, the trarr- comcdian acrobats, have a fairly funny act In which some of the flops and somer? saults are worth seeing. The pic? tures are good. Swatting Fly at IIIJ011.
