The - organization is stronger than ever - and consists of eighteen people. It is a good popular priced company and the specialties, of which there are a great number, are of high order. The company will appear here for a week, commencing Monday, Oct. 21. The opening bill "Angle, The Country Girl" Is a comedy drama bristling with startling climaxes and comedy. The enviable reputation the company has gained throughout the country will be more than sustained this sea son, it is said and it is claimed better plays have never been presented at popular prices. Vaudeville at the Phillips. A glance at the bill that has been prepared for this week at the New Phillips in vaudeville, will be suffi cient to convince those familiar with such subjects that a treat is in pros pect for the patrons of the house. Spe cial interest attaches to the appear ance of the mysterious Fontlnella, which has created a considerable fu rore at other places on the vaudeville circuits and it appears that all have been baffled by the remarkable nature of this creation, doubt existing as to whether it is .real or make-believe. There is little doubt but what Fontlnel la will be sufficient to get the Phillips big business, to say nothing of the remainder of the bill. Below is the complete program for the week: " Overture Miss Grace Miller. Burke and Urline, "The Automobile Girls," in conversation and songs. Chris Christopher, yodel singer and novelty violinist.

Hamilton, O., Oct . 19. The Butler county grand jury refused to indict of ficials of the Butler county infirmary, accused by State Examiners Bliss and Brown of the bureau of inspection and supervision of public offices. Not ronly did the jury fail to indict, but it took the unusual step of criticising the state examiners iri its report, alleging that they were not entirely fair and impartial in their report to the audi tor of state. The famous Christian science case, in which Coroner Schumacher eharged i Miss Nellie Freshman, head of the lo 1 cal Christian science church and a leading practitioner, and other persons i with criminal responsibility for the ' death of young Waldo Kennel of Tren ton, was ignored entirely. Sixteen indictments were found. One was that of Charles r. Ciscle, a promi nent business man, who must stand trial on a charge of failure to provide for an indigent and infirm parent. Mr. Ciscle recently quarreled with his brother over the support of their moth er. Stephen Simpson, who caused the death of Fred Beatty by a blow of his fist, was indicted for assault and bat tery. Two indictments were found against Freda Krause, a Wood-street woman, for shooting to kill. Beauty. Beauty Is not an accident of things. It pertains to their essence; it per vades the wide range of creation, and wherever it is impaired or banished we have in this fact the proof of the moral disorder which distrusts the world.

CONCRETE RELIGION OF THE BODY VERSUS ABSTRACT CHRISTIAN SCIENCE, SO-CALLED. "God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he Js Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands." The Acts 17: 24. Editor Palladium: 'More in sorrow than in anger' we learn of friend Easterday's anxiety to j terminate this discussion, and that ha fain would '"eschew controversy;" ve. quite agree that the controversial Is J sadly lacking in his articles; we also note that his "sole mission is to cor-j rect misstatements and misapprehea- i sions concerning christian science teaching." Judging from the numer ous misunderstandings, quarrels anl suits in court, "christian science teach ing," like its author, is peculiarly be set at every step with "misstatements and misapprehensions." It seems, as it were afflicted with a neurasthenic supersensuousness to criticism. Your real reforms and reformers are made of "sterner stuff." In Lis desire that the Palladium "could reasonably ter minate this discussion" with his last cartridge, our urbane friend of "the christian science committee of publi cation," again enlists the writer's sym pathy; he recalls at this moment how fondly he welcomed the commander's order "cease firing," when out of amu nition on the firing line at the battle of Chicamauga. While It is quite evident that this discussion is becoming burdensome to friend Easterday, nevertheless we ' opine that the Palladium would "rea-j sonably" accord to Its many self-think-1 ing readers, who would not esteem it in 1 the least unprofitable or burdensome if he would devote his ready pen to a candid, rational and logical discussion of a few of the vital contensions the i writer has made in this discussion and ' in answer to which your readers have 1 witnessed only dodging of the issues, begging the question, with abstract as sertions and insinuations with no at tempt to back them up with concrete facts and truths. I am sure that if he only will "fall to something of more se rious note," such for instance, as the following, the public would not Le dangerously perforated: The terms divine mind and divine healing, are not mentioned in the bi ble; tell us how it is possible for God j to have a mind without a material or ganized brain, and why is it not only materialistic, but rank pantheism to speak of the creator as possessing a mind? Who created "Adam a syno nym for evil?" according to Mrs. Ed dy. Who created "the first Adam, of the earth, earthy?" Who created mate rial man with an organized brain and i sequent mortal mind? If "christian sci- ence is really divine healing, it must j be the same miraculous power by which Jesus wrought, and which he' delegated to his Immediate disciples jn the following language, "Heal the sick, raisa the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons: freely ye received, freely give. Get you no gold, nor sil ver, nor brass in your purse." Then why does not "christian science" de populate our grave yards and cemete ries? If really divine, it could raise the dead as well as heal the sick. If evil is not the absence of good, then what is it? If darkness is not the opposite or absence of light, then what is It? If what we call sickness is not a benevolent effort of the life entity or vital force to resist and elim inate from the system substances and influences inimical to life and health, then what Is it? It would be much better for his candor if Mr. Easterday would, instead of the bare assertion, calculated like his philosophy, to mis lead the uninformed, refer your read ers to some work of any standing or authority among scientific men, or used as a text book in colleges and universities that "completely ex plodes" the atomic theory of matter. or contains any other than the reason- of science have made in all branches. Positive or Physical Philosophy, and Abstract or Metaphysical Philosophy. If Mr. Stanhope Easterday could be induce;! to lift his mental vision from the Eddy bible, and with his material eyes and 'mortal mind" read and think for himself, he could become in formed as to the history of positive or physical philosophy and the birth of science; that before the birth of pos itive or material philosophy and the physical sciences, all was purely spec ulative philosophy; but since the time of Lavoisier (about 1772). Dalton (1S10), Comte (1S57), positive philoso phy and science have rapidly evoluted from these foundation principles, un til today our splendid system of phys ical sciences and their respective, pos itively demonstrated philosophies stand a grand monument to human in tellect, and Mrs. Eddy's "mortal mind." The Atom the Scientist's Working Unit. While it is true that the atom of matter is purely hypothetical never- ! theless, It is a metaphysical fact, dem-i onstrated by millions upon millions of i chemical experiments and inter- j changes, by millions of scien tists, for 97 years; the atom stands today as the chemists and gen eral physicist's working unit, as much a verity as the hypothetical location of stars and planets hundreds, of years before the discovery of the telescope verified their theoretical location.

Instinct ively one is reminded of Webster's re ply to the woman who complained to him of the many obscene words in his dictionary: "Madam, you were look ing for them."
