MURRETTE TO OPEN THURSDAY NIGHT Handsomest Moving Picture Theater in the Mid dle .West, x L' The Murrette,-admittedly the most elaborate and best equipped moving picture theatre in the Middle West, will be opened to the public on next Thursday evening... Mr. Murray;- the owner, and whose vaudeville house it adjoins, states that he has done everything within his power to make this an attractive and sanitary structure and that it cannot be duplicated in this section among buildings erected- especially for the purpose ' of displaying the picture dramas. Very few, theatres have been built for the . production of the latter, the imajority being in structures not or iginally designed for the presentation of this form of theatrical entertain ment, but the Murrette t.as been built on the most modern plans for thea tres of this description and is the last word in conveniene,eomfort and san itary requirements! The indirect heating and ventilating ' system has been -utilized, the latter being perfect in Its theory and prac tice of keeping the air ip the theatre fresh, this system resulting in a com iplete chanfco of air every two minutes, the pure air being, fanned in from the balcony in the rear and the impure leaving the building by way of three large ventilators ih the roof and two on the floor. The floors in the auditorium are all of concrete' as are" a portion of the ""alls which are finished in ornamental plaster. The entrance and foyer are tiled, v.ith marble-based walls and plaster and stucco sides and roof, the foyer having mirrors on either hand and the plasa doors heavy green draperies. The auditorium, which seats five rtmdrcd, is handsomely decorated in Ivory and rose and has the semi-indi-rrct lighting system with handsome lighting appurtenances, the decorators, Tedretta and Son, of Cincinnati, hav ing made an artistic and effectively ornamented interior. The machine booth Is constructed of cement, there being little wood, aside from the mahogany door-frames, in the building, the latter being prac tically fire-proof. Two Powers number fix A machines will be used and the films procured through the Mutual Film Company of Indianapolis. The completed structure will repre sent a cash investment of $32,0(70, the lot $10,000, the building $22,000, the theatre, as stated, having' no superior of its class . . in this section of the country. .... . , , The architects were Taylor and De camp, of Cincinnati, designers of buildings of this character, and the Contractors, who have had the build ing under way since June, the Hazen .Construction Company, of the city., " same , "Were all 'medicines as meritorious as Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy the world would be much better off and the percentage of suffering greatly decreased," writes Lindsay Scott, of Temple, Ind. sale by all dealers. . por , CIRCUIT COURT ' The case of William Petry and George Kuhlenberg appealed from po- j lice court recently on the charge of fast driving was dismissed from the Wayne Circuit court.

Plague has appeared for the first time upon the eastern borders of the United .States. .- The, nearest point from which the disease has heretofore approached our Atlantic and Gulf sea boards is the Azores. But now it has found a lodgement in Porto Rico, where it has already caused over forty-two cases and a score of deaths, and in Havana, Cuba, where a dozen per sons have been attacked and several deaths have occurred. Plague, then, is on our doorstep. And now I am going to indicate raeas ures which are being taken to prevent it form crossing the threshold. The cities on the Atlantic and Gulf coast, realizing that an absolute quar antine against rats, without the prohi bition of commerce, is almost an im possibility, have begun the work of ex amining their rodent population for plague. All vessels from San Juan and Havana bound for the United States, are thoroughly fumigated and every known measure taken to pre vent their bringing rats into our ports. Crusades against rats are also under way in the threatened cities. I cannot prophesy what United States ports, if any, will be attacked, nor can I say which will be the first to suffer from the incursion of the plague. Indeed, it is to be hoped that the timely warning that has been giv en and the manifold precautions that have been taken, will serve to protect us. But in the meantime it is the duty of every port having marine communi cations with other countries which are plague infected to begin at once to rid Itself of rats, and to so provide for the future that even if infected rats may be imported, they will have no opportunity to enter human dwell- I ings and spread the disease through the transference of their flees to man. When the plague was reported in Porto Rico, the Public Health and Ma rine Hospital Service of the United States at once doubled its precautions in order to' prevent this ancient dis ease from gaining access to our east ern' and southern ports. Our experi ence with the disease in California has demonstrated the fact that such dis eases can be successfully eradicated. Therefore, Assistant Surgeon S. B. Grubbs, who was already in Porto Ri co as chief quarantine officer, imme diately put into operation the machin ery which is used to prevent the dis ease from leaving an infected port. This embodies a thorough outgoing quarantine which means that all ships are fumigated after discharging a car go; that they are to be loaded from lighter and that the only freight that can be shipped is that which has been certified as having originated and hav ing been stored in rat proof surround ings only. Plague is carried to man from the fleas of infected rats. So if we can prevent the transportation of rats from infected ports into non-infected ports, we can prevent the shipment of plague from stricken territory into clean com munities. The situation in Porto Rico finally I became so acute'that it was soon seen that more exhaustive measures must be taken. Tne government or Forto Rico, therefore, requested the assist ance of the Public Health and Marine Hospital Service because of the recog nized experience of this corps in plague warfare. Assistant Surgeon R. H. Creel, an officer of great field and laboratory experience, was at once ordered to Porto Rico. As his assists- ante n;rA cent Asaiatsint -1 i 1 virctnn Q .Tna- eph Ridlon and T. L. Williams. Plague has manifested itself by hu man death in the town of San Juan, Santurce, Carolina, Loiza, Arroyo and Dorado. This really represents quite an extensive area. The heaviest In fection, however, has been found in the two most populated portions of San Juan, Puerta De Tierra and San turce and the work is therefore focus ed on these points. How do you fight plague? To fight plague you must not only wage a war of absolute extermination upon the rat but you must also trace the disease among the rodent population and pre vent its being transmitted to man. To exterminate 'the rodents you must take into consideration every single factor of their existence. The first thing is to cut off the rat's food supply. This implies a clean household both inside and outside. It does not mean that the remnants of the meals are merely out of sight, or that the refuse from the stables can be thrown into an uncovered bin, but it means that all foods which might tempt the rat shall be rendered inac cessible by the use of metal contain ers or metal screening. Once you have done this it is easy to kill the rats off by using poisons. It has been my observation that phos pherous paste is one of the best poi sonous agents. It shines at night and the rats seem to like its taste and odor. Another advantage it has is that it deteriates, hence you are not likely you to kill an animal you never Intended to harm a couple of years after you put the poison out. No mat ter what kind of poison is used it must be put out carefully bo that children and domestic animals will not come in contact with it. In order to trace the course of the disease in rats it is necessary to ob tain samples of the rodent population. To da this two kinds of traps are used, the large wire cage trap and the small er snap trap. The cage trap has the advantage that it takes the rats alive and thus permits scientific investiga tion of the fleas upon their bodies. In this connection it may be stated that in San Francisco and Porto Rico many careful studies are being made of the different species of fleas. It requires Just as much intelligence and care to trap rats as it does to trap - mink or otter. The rat bait should.be firmly attached to the trap, the trap must be placed In the run way of the rat The surroundings must K rhinffixi B a littla a a A - " u v.. fvumiirb and every precaution taken to prevent frightening the quarry. Time and lab or are required to train rat trappers. And a peculiar combination of skill and patience is necessary to produce a good rodent hunter. All captured rats must be tagged to show where, when and how and by whom they are captured. They are then taken to a laboratory and exam ined by a skilled corps of officers for evidence of disease. The captured rats are firBt emersed in an antiseptic solution to kill the fleas. Next a tacker affixes the rat to a shingle. The shingle is then giv en a number so that If the tag is lost, the identity of the rat remains es tablished. Next the rat Is passed to the skinner who with a pair of forceps in one hand and a sharp scalpel in the other reflects the skin from the abdomen of the rat and looks at the arm pits and groins for enlarged glands. He then opens the body and looks for other evidences of disease. It Is remark able how skillful these laborers be come in recognizing plague, leprosy and the host of other diseases which affect rats. Next the rats are gone over care fully by an officer who has been train ed in a hygenic laboratory in the rec ognition of this disease. Should he find anything suspicious he makes the bacteriological cultures necessary to establish or disprove his diagnosis. Suppose that a plague infected rat is found, the field force is immediately notified and the district from which the infected animal came is subjected to a thorough cleaning and deratl zation. These are the measures that have been put in force in Porto Rico and in Puerta De Tierra. Large numbers of insanitary buildings have also been de stroyed, others have been rat proofed by the use of impervious material, such as concrete and sheet iron, and still others have been raised in the air so as to allow easy access to the cat and the dog, the natural enemies of the rat. CUPID GETS A BLOW FROM UNCLE SAM The "lovers' roost" at the post office has had most of its perches removed by Uncle Sam, and according to Post master Haas, the post office is now again used exclusively for postal serv ice. The recent edict issued by the post office department forbidding minors securing mail at the general delivery window unless they could give good reason, has caused a notice able decrease in the number of love missives. The stand taken by the post office authorities against using the building as a trysting and spooning place, has also resulted in an almost absolute lack of entertainment for the post of fice clerks. "I'll meet you at the post office" bids fair to soon become an obsolete term among the "younger set" of the city. gg Masonic 9f Calendar i Monday, Aug. 12. Richmond Com mandery No. 8, K.

Chesterfield. . - r HONORS ARE PAID ' BULGARIAN RULER Ferdinand I. Has Ruled the Little Balkan Country Twenty-five Years. (National News Association) VIENNA. Aug. 10. Tomorrow Fer dinand I., will round out a quarter of a century as ruler of Bulgaria. The an niversary recalls much that is of in terest. It also serves to show that po litical prophecies often go wide of the mark. Twenty-five years ago last month there came to Vienna a Bulgarian statesman, M. Stoiloff. envoy of Stam bouloff, the dictator. Stoiloff was searching for a prince who would deign to accept the Bulgarian crown. The offer was not very tempting. The fate that befell the unhappy Alexan der of Battenberg, the first prince of Bulgaria, made it hard to find his suc cessor. After several princes had been ap proached without success, Stambou loff and Stoiloff thought of the Ooburgs, who had already furnished several kings. So Stoiloff journeyed to Ebenthal, near Vienna, and appealed to the youngest, cleverest, and most attractive of the Coburgs, Prince Fer dinand. His mother, Princess Clemen tine, was a daughter of Louis Philippe. Ferdinand was a nephew of the king of the Belgians and related to the queens of England and Portugal. Prince Ferdinand was then twenty six. He was well aware of the dangers his acceptance would involve. But he saw in young Bulgaria an enormous force, which, if he could direct and control it, might work miracles. He had faith in the people and faith in himself. He accepted, and on August 11, 1887, he assumed the reins of gov ernment The young Prince had an uphill fight. The confirmative of his selec tion by the Powers and of his election by the Bulgarian national assembly was only secured from the Porte after the most humiliating restrictions had been placed upon him. It was the un derstanding that he was to remain permanently in the Principality and that the state of his country religion, education, finance, defense, industry and commerce must be periodically scrutinized by the Ministry at the Yildiz Kiosk. - Nominally a vassal of Turkey, in reality Bulgaria was dominated by Russia, while Austria and the other Powers watched with a jealous eye and stood ready to stir up trouble at any moment. The foreign relations of the struggling Principality were bad enough, but the condition of affairs at home was even worse. Rival factions disputed the Government, the army was torn with dissensions, and noth ing but the iron rule of Stambouloff prevented the country's ruin. Such was Bulgaria in 1887, when Ferdinand arrived. And what marvel ous changes twenty-five years under his rulership have brought about. At the start, unrecognized by any of the Powers of Europe, treated as a usur per, laughed at and hated, he achieved the recognition of all the Powers, and with it their respect. Today Ferdinand is recognized everywhere, received with royal honors in all the capitals of Europe; his realm has become the most prosperous and most powerful of the Balkan States; it has proudly broken the last ties that bound it to Turkey; it has civilized, modernized and improved its system of govern ment; the country is covered with roads and railways; it has a thrifty, industrious population and a brilliant capital; everywhere are to be seen magnificent military buildings, for the backbone of Bulgaria is her army, which is the best disciplined In the Balkans. Czar Ferdinand, as he has been known since Bulgaria achieved , her complete independence five years ago, is in person a handsome, soldierly man, bearded and always well groom ed. He is not only an earnest student, with a special leaning toward botany and ornithology, but also a man of highly cultivated taste. He has made a complete study of the difficult lan guage and the history of his people and is a great stickler for the cere monies of his court. Five years after he accepted the Bulgarian crown Ferdinand married Marie Louise of the Bourbon family of Parma, a woman of noble character, who died six years later, endeared in the hearts of the people, leaving four children, two princes and two princess es, the first royal children born on Bulgarian soil in 400 years. Prince Bemis, the heir to the throne, is in his nineteenth year. He has received an excellent education and is said to pos 8ss many of the strong qualities that have helped his father to success. In 1908. about ten years after the loss of his first wife, Ferdinand was mar ried to Princess Eleanore of Reuss, a lady of about his own age. DIED AT LOS ANGELES ; WELL KNOWN HERE Word has been received here of the death of Leander-A. Teagle at Los Angeles, California, Thursday, August eighth.

Fred Snyder " HIS CODE MESSAGE. It Wasn't Quite So Mysterious as He Intended It to Be. The frequency with which revolu tions occur In Latin American lands makes them "anybody's game," and as a result of this many persons with out experience either in conspiracy or battle are likely at any moment to find themselves conspirators and warriors. One of these novices at the gentle art of "revoluting" is the hero of the tale which follows, a favorite in a certain South American republic. The novice in question, having sud denly acquired a violent distaste for the president of his native land, rush ed away from home in a great rage and enlisted in the revolutionary ranks. The next thing be knew be was detailed' to raise troops in a certain district It was explained to him that be must envelop all his acts in dark secrecy. In order the - better to accomplish this the revolutionary commander told the novice that whenever he felt called upon to pen a dispatch he must conch It in the terms of a code, so that gov ernment officers might not guess the meaning of any dispatch if it fell Into their bands. The novice promised to follow In structions to the letter. A few weeks later he bad collected a force of sol diers and desired to acquaint revolu tionary headquarters with the fact. Taking his copy of the code from his pocket, he duly noted that "cow" was the code word for soldier and "cigar" the one for rifle. He sat down and "wrote a dispatch. It fell into the enemy's hands. - It was conceived in these cryptic terms: "I have the honor to report that I have 200 cows and 150 cigars, but the cows have no shoes and the cigars no bayonets."

' CHEAP PERFUMES. Made From Muek Supplied by Many Varieties of Civet Cats. Most women who indulge freely in the nse of cheap perfumes do not know of what they are compounded. The principal ingredient of low priced perfumes is musk, animal musk, which is obtained from several creatures. The muskrat is probably the best known of these, and a few decades ago the wives and sweethearts of men who set traps around ditches and ponds in the countryside carried proud ly the bags of musk obtained from this source. As an article of commerce the musk supplied by several varieties of civet cats is probably the best known today. The odor is strong and sweet The strength Is the particularly no ticeable feature and Is the reason why it is the foundation of the per fumes. In the small mammal house at the zoological gardens are two sizes of civets, and any one with an inves tigating turn of mind may stand near the cages and catch the musky odor. The musk Is used In the cheap per fumes, as only a little is needed to give a most lasting odor to an ounce of perfumery, but the musk Itself is not cheap, and It is one of the duties of the attendant of the mammal bouse to collect it It is then sold through reg ular channels and Is one of the sources of revenue to the zoo. although a small one. Philadelphia Record. SHIPS THAT KICK. Seamen Don't Like Them and Dodge Them if They Can. When sailors Join a ship almost the first question asked by each one as he takes the wheel for the first time is. "Does she kick?" Kicking, as It is called by the sea men, Is due to the action of the water under the lee of the rudder when tbo vessel's stern, which has for a mo ment been borne skyward on the crest of a wave, falls back again Into the trough with such terrific force as to make her tremble fore and aft and perhaps wrench the wheel from the grasp of the steersman. Sometimes it happens that he is taken unawares and, being unable to let go in time, is flung right over the wheel to the other side of the deck, often receiving serious injuries. Some times a man will be pitched right overboard Into the sea. and a recent case is known of a man who received a blow under the chin from one of the spokes and died a few days later from the effects. In some of the worst typei of kick ers kicking straps are used regularly in nearly all weathers, and many sail ors refuse to go to sea In ships which are known to be confirmed kickers.
