THE LAKE COUNTY TIMES PAGE FIVE. THEATRICAL NOTES. AS TO CURRENCY REFORM AT Till; (OLOMAI, Only two works more remain of the current production of Geo. M. Cohan, the "l'ankcc Doodle Comedian," and his bright and lively music play and Fonj? show, "George "Washington, Jr.," at Chicago's beautiful theatre, the Co lonial, 'and the tremendous business that has attended the performances week aftr week since its arrival Is the best testimonial of the merits and pop ular attractiveness of the comedian and his offering;. For more than two months the jolly play, brimful of catchy music, bright and original comedy lines and situations and true Cohanisrns, and Interpreted by an excellent company, has been entertaining hosts of lovers of this light and effervescing; style of Btagre material, and the enjoyment of the audiences has been attested by re peated encores and enthusiastic bursts of applause, as well aa the fact that everyone departs at the conclusion of the performance whistling and hum ming the tuneful airs and commenting on the patriotic and original spirit of thfi play. Several features of special moment attend the closing preform -ances, the final performance to be given on Saturday night. Dec. 1, and there is to be an extra Thanksfflvinsr Day mat inee. It Is reported on seml-o!ticial au thority that young Mr. Cohan and his present company will return to the Co lonial next spring- for a summer run In his latest play, "Popularity," which will be given a musical atmosphere, and the principal role assumed by Mr. Cohan himself. CHICAGO SKA SON OF llEX-Hl K KM)! IX FOLK WEKKS. The closing- days of "r.en-IIur" at the Chicago Auditorium are announc ed. Klaw & Ki lander's stupendous production of Wallace's mighty Biblical romance is to be withdrawn in four weeks' time. A special matinee is an nounced for Thanksgiving day in ad dition to the regular Wednesday and Saturday matinees of that week. The present engagement of "Ben-IIur" Is the most notable in its career. Chi cago's largest and most classic amuse ment temple has never held more cul tured and distinguished audiences., It Is estimated that by the time the en gagement closes fully 300.000 people will have attended. This Is a marvel ous record and indicates that this great emi-religious drama of Palestine, the product of the pen of General Lew Wallace, able statesman, gallant sol dier, entertaining writer and cour teous American gentleman, will remain u potent factor in the amusement world for years to come. It is advisable for those who in tend witnessing this attraction to lose no time In writing Mr. Milward Ad ams, director of the Chicago Audi torium, for scat reservation. Mr. Ad ams promises prompt attention to mail orders accompanied by remittance. complete detail and equipment. With four big successes to their credit and nothing to diminish their reputation for excellent and popular material, Messrs. Pixiy and Lauders have for six years been working on something which should prove entirely new to the stage, as it is founded on conditions and em ploys atmosphere and environment never before used in the stage world. The first act of the new play is laid In Honolulu and embraces the quaint and rhythmic Hawaiian ways, customs, cos tumes, native dances and so on. The other two acts are on the island of Inde, situated south of the Philippine group, and bring in many novel and hitherto unknown orientalisms. The principal role, instead of being an oriental poten tate, as would be judged from the title, is an American circus sideshow "bark er," played by Mr. Frank Moulan, a leading comedian of the best school, and in his support are Maude Lillian 1 Jerri, Pager Midgely, Phoebe Coyne, and any number of excellent musical comedy Interpreters. The production has been given a most gorgeous and luxuriant investiture, and from every indication the new offering will prove one of the big hits of recent years. Experts in Session at Washington Formulating Principles What They Mostly Favor. Washington, Nov. 14. For more tna five hours the currecy commit tees of the American Banking asso ciation and the New York Chamber of Commerce discussed the "formulation of principles" which are to form the basis of the legislation for the issues of emergency currency in times of financial stringency. These "principles" will be recommendM to congress for enactment into law at the coming session. The discussion developed a sentiment in favor of a currency to be issueu on the general credit of a bank desiring to emit emergency currency during erlods of financial stress, as is done in the case of various European countries. lue alternative of this proposition that of segregating the assets of the bank as a special security for these issues was voted down. The tax on Uiese general credit issues, it is pro posed, shall form ;i guarantee fund to be placed in the treasury and to be used to meet the liabilities of any bank which fails. A thoroughly delightful dramatic novelty Is being offered at the Garrick theater this week in ,the "Iioad to Yesterday." Its first audiences went to the theater with the vaguest notions of what would be really revealed in this curiously named play, concerning which it had been so mysteriously an nounced that it dealt with the, spirit of fantasy with the idea of reincarna tion of souls. What they have se n is a refreshing, whimsical comedy, half of Which is told in the shape of a unique dream play. A young American girl on her first sight-seeing visit to Lon don and the Old World falls under the superstitious spell of midsummer eve and, dlzz5' with the exciting peeps which she has had of a romantic past, falls Into a Bleep-like trance in which she is wafted back to the England of Elizabeth and Shakespeare. The odd part of it all is that Fhe not only seems to be herself living a real life among the picturesque figures of that time, but she sees all her modern London relatives and friends moving around her in the strange guise of that by gone age. The metamorphoses. or Changes of conditions are strikingly astonlshing. Gypsy and witch, or wife and tapster, lord of the castle and maid of the inn, soldiers of fortune and all the typical characters of the England of 160: enact a peculiar dream romance in which exciting melodrama, sparkling comedy and fantastic nov elty are all co-mingled in as rare a treat as has been enjoyed before the footlights in a long day. It is just Such a play in its whimsical original ity as Barrie's "Peter ran," only ab solutely novel in Its own kind, and in the fourth and last act the dreaming heroine and all her mystically rein carnated personages come back from yesterday to today again. Xew be wilderments attend the change back to modern scenes and personalities once more, and two love romances one serious and poetic, and the other happy and light-hearted are brought to a pleasant climax in curiously in teresting fashion. The play is brim ful of picturesque charm and dramatic surprises, with the spirit of comedy and fantasv over all from start to finish. Above all the piece is capitally enacted. Every role is interpretated by a well-known player. Minnie Du rree, that winsome comedienne, con veys the full spirit of the half-mystic dream scenes as the- dreaming heroine and carries the incidental iove romance in her most fascinating manner. Helen Ware makes a dashingly dramatic fig ure of the gypsy. Black Halena, and Julia Plane gives a cleverly contrasted double portrayal of the superstitious Irish maid servant, Morah. and the old Itch. Mother Gillaw. White Whittle sey and Miriam Nesbitt add a touch of tender romance as the strangely divid ed lovers. As all the Old personages of the play are seen as two absolutely different characters being utterly dif ferent in acts two and three from their modern selves of acts one and four the odd dramatic values of the various roles are easily appreciated. This gen uinely novel eciv.edy of fantasy wi!! hold the boards at the Garrick for a limited engagement of two weeks only ere going to Xew York. CHICAGO OPEHA HOUSE. Crowded houses met the production of "The Cowboy and the Lady" this week at the Chicago opera house. This play is the one in which Xat Goodwin and Maxine Elliott made one of their greatest successes, and the manner in which it was mounted and acted at the Chicago playhouse, which has for many years held the record for mag nificent productions, has been thor oughly appreciated by the discriminat ing theatergoers, who have formed a regular clientele of the dramatic com pany, ine audience grew in size as the week grew older, and the expres slons of pleasure and gratification at the superb acting have been general. The work of Miss Florence Reed, the daughter of Roland Reed, who has been playing Mrs. Weston in "The Cowboy and the Lady," has been great ly liked. Miss Reed is young, ambi tious ana one ot the most promising actresses we have seen in a long time. William Bramwell was a thoroughly satisfactory Teddy North. The cast was happy all through, the members of the company fitting into their parts as though they had been born into that particular sphere of life. Next week will see the production of a play which was acted at the same house nearly twenty years ago by Wil liam II. Crane. It is that celebrated satire on Washington life, "The Sena tor," written by David D. Lloyd. It tells of the trials, laughable and pa thetic, of a raw Western senator at the national capital. The senator was un trained in the finesse of the American Paris, but he was possessed of shrewd ness, humor and generous impulses, which pulled him through many other wise trying situations. the play is a sterling one, funny and stirring as well, and is one that has made the greatest success for Crane that he has ever enjoyed in his whole career. It will be put on next week with all the style and ehect which made the play first so celebrated. NOT WORTH THE TROUBLE. Irishman Didn't Want Whole Town Torn Up to Find Watch. Kid Gleason, of the Philadelphia Na tional league team, was telling his friends a little story on a Hibernian friend. The kid and his friend ha attended a boxing bout and when leav ing the building the Irishman dis covered that his watch was gone. The sergeant of police promised to "leave no stone unturned" in the effort to re cover the timepiece. Next day, in walking down street with his friend Gleason pointed to some men who were engaged in some excavating work. By chance, the sergeant to whom Gleason and the Irishman had reported the loss was watching the men work. "Great operation, isn't it?" the ball player asked. "Yis, it is, indade. That's it all fer?" asked Pat. "Why, don't you remember that the police sergeant said he would leave no stone unturned to get back your watch? See, there he is now direct Ing the work." The kid's friend from the old fod was atnazed, and, walking up to the sergeant said: "I thank yez very much, sirgeant, but if yez 13 going to tear up the whole town, let the watch go to the devil. It's not worth the trouble." f;uwwmtumvUMHuvwv j s Dy GEORGE STAIR. D ANTI-JAPANESE SPIRIT Strong nt 'Frisco and Growing Strong er, but th School Law Invalid, Says Metcalf. San Francisco, Nov. 14. The Call says that Secretary Metcalf, before leaving for Washington, confided to a few intimate friends that the senti ment of the people of San Francisco, if not the whole state, was opposed to allowing Japanese and Chinese chil dren to mincle freely with Cain-nsian children in the public schools, and that it was likely that the statute provid ing that Asiatic children be taught in separate schools would be strengthened at the coming session of the legisla ture . The secretary said further, according to The Call, that it was his opinion as a lawyer that the treaty between the United States and Japan guar anteed to the children of Japanese resident in this country the right to an education in the publicschools with out discrimination and on an equal plane with the children of the mo4 favored nations, and that he so would report to President Roosevelt Copyright, 1X6, by Ilomer Spragae "You should have sent your trunk on in the train ahead," said Compton. "Just now there is a press of baggage, and you cannot get your trunk out In time to get the other train." "But I must," insisted Daisy, with pretty imperiousness. "If I lose that train the yacht will have left and I shall miss the trip. She will be sent south next month, and I shall not have another chance." "I'll see what I can do," he volun teered. "But I am afraid that it looka very much like a hopeless case." "You can do it," said Daisy confident ly as she settled back In her scat witt the air of one who dismisses discus sion. Somehow Compton gave one con iidence in his powers of accomplish ment. Ever since nhe had been a child she had let him do things for her. He had always seemed a handy man, and precisely because he was so handy he had urged his suit on her in vain. Just now Dick Tomlin was the fa vored suitor. Dick was to meet her : at the station and take her over to the I other railroad, where she would con ; nect with the train for the shore where I her brother was waiting for her on his I yacht In spite of her liking for Tomlin she : was glad when Frank Compton's form loomed up in the aisle of the car. Dick was not a good manager. With Frank along she knew that her trunk would i be assured. I Compton sank into the seat beside her. "I suppose there is some favored swain waiting for you," he suggested. Daisy blushed. "Dick Tomlin said he might be there," she admitted. Compton smiled. "If he said that he might be there, bo assured that he will," he said gravely. "Will he be the one, Daisy?" "You are always thinking about my getting married," she pouted. "I don't der the baggage, and the helper grin ned. , "Jump up there with the rest of the trunks until I can run you into the room," he laughed. I Compton fell In with the Joke and took his place on top of the pile of lug I gage. , ! For the next half hour he was com : pelled to sit in the stuffy room until l the baggagemaster found time to at tend to him. Then the two checks were verified, the tag was taken from his arm, and he was permitted to go. Three weeks later he ran into Daisy on the street. "How is my trunk?" she asked, with a smile. "You got It, I hope?" he said quickly. "I mean my substitute trunk," she explained. "The Potters told me about it It seems that they saw you make the exchange." "It was the only way to avoid a de lay," he said. "That accounts for my not coming to say goodby." "You are a dear old fellow," she said softly. "When I heard the story from the Potters and remembered how Dick complained because you were on the, train with me I saw the difference be tween you two and" "And? he questioned. "The contrast was in your favor," she said hurriedly. "Frank, if you want to ask a certain question again I think that perhaps" "Here is the jeweler's," suggested Compton. "It's get the ring." "I want one with a seal like a trunk; check," she said as she followed. "I planned it all out on the boat." "Bless the trunk check," said Comp ton fervently. 31 The soda cracker is an ideal food.

"Because I want to be something bet ter than good friends," he explained. "I want you for my wife and you merely laugh at the idea." "I've known you ages," she ex plained. "You seem more like a big brother." "So a newcomer wins the prize," he sighed. "Please don't speak about if plead ed Daisy. "You know I hate to hurt you." Compton settled back in his seat with a sigh. That was the explanation of it all. Daisy had known him all her life. It was the new face that won her at tention. There was no hope for him. The train was pulling into the station before he roused himself. "Let me have your check," he said quietly. "Tomlin will look after you. I Russians Like Irish Herrings.

Treatment of Modern Bullet Wounds A most interesting and far-reaching experiment on a large scale was per formed at the battlefield of Mukden says the Post-Graduate. Several saai tary ofilcers with good surgical train ing being present, out of 100 soldiers wounded in the abdomen, 50 were operated upon by laparotomy, the 50 others left alone, the only treatment consisting in absolute rest and in keeping the external wound opening clean. Of the 50 soldiers operated upon 40 died, of the non-operated 40 survived. This striking result indi cated the manner of treatment of abdominal wounds throughout the whole war. Laparotomy on or in the rear of the battlefield was afterward hardly ever performed, but strict care was taken that all soldiers wounded in the abdomen had absolute rest for the first threa days. One of the most promising and at tractive offerings of tht roar future in this part of the country is the produc tion at Chicago's beautiful theatre, the Colonial, on Saturday night, I'v e. 2. nf '. Pixley and Lenders' new musical com e "The Grand M 05.ru 1." to be staged ' and produced by Klaw & Lrlacger in j Choice of Pessimism. The famous novelist was being lion ized at a picnic. "But hew," said a young girl, "do you ever get your self in the mood to write such a bit terly pessimistic book?" "1 use," the novelist answered, "a fountain pen." It was then for the first time that she noticed the large black stain on his left breast, around the pocket. She gave him a grateful look as she handed him the square of brass. "You're an awful comfort, Frank," she said softly. "I'm sorry I can't can't" "It's all right," he said, as he gath ered up ker belongings. "Tell Tomlin to get a hansom and send the driver after me. I'll hare the trunk for him." He helped her down the steps and, after seeing that Tomlin was there, went in search of the trunk. Truck aft er truck was run down the platform, and at last he recognized the little steamer trunk with its big red D. Quickly he explained to the helper the necessity for having the trunk im mediately, but the baggage handlers were tired and cross and not disposed to extend any favors. "Can't do it," he said sharply. "The trunks have got to be checked up be fore they can go out That will take half an hour." Compton passed the man a bill. "Suppose you transfer the check to me," he said. "You can check m? up instead of the trunk. Then if there's any trouble you have me to answer for It" For a moment the man stood still as The Photographers' Art League, com- i the idea sank in; then, with a laugh, he posed of photographers of Indiana.
