Miss Frances Archer, who assumes the role of La Grippe, the daughter of Don Carlots, carried her lines through vy'lth an easy manner and her solos and duets will be not the least of the musical attractions to be offered. Miss Archer has had considerable experience on. the stage, having been a member of Mc Caull's opera company. Miss Ruth Peebles, as premiere uanseuse, dances with rhythmic grace. Mr. Ross Dale, the leading tenor, and booked as Don Jose, the captain of the guards, has a very pleasing voice and shows the knowledge of the stage he ac quired while a professional. Messrs. Willoughby Thomas, E. K. Chafee. C A. Grimm and Miss Louise Dose also vie with each other for a large share of well merited applause. Mr. St. Clair Hurd, one of the authors of the opera, has concluded to assume the leading role of Don Carlots, which will bs enough to warrant that part of the piece being properly handled. Professor Wheel er will conduct the orchestration. Nearly all the property for the presenta tion has arrived. The costumes have all been made and Monday evening the first dress rehearsal will be given. The "bull" Which will figure in the "Bull fight," has arrived. It was shipped here In a lathe crate, -which speaks for the ferociousness of the animal. No food or water -will be given him during his stay In this city in order to make him as ugly as possible.

You become feverish and your appetite falls. "When you retire at night you are un able to sleep. You awake the next morning feeling worse than when you went to bed. You grow worse as the day proceeds. Your business, however, may keep you from thinking of the cold. You become ir ritable and cranky. Toward noon your nose begins to discharge, first watery ma terial, then mucous, or perhaps a little blood or pus. You become a little relieved In the afternoon, but the distressing symp toms return -with night. You retire to bed feeling worse. You have now laid the foundation for a serious spell of sickness. The cold In your head has affected the mucous membrane, and as this transparent skin leads from the nose to the throat, to the bronchial tubes, the lungs, the stomach, the bowels, the bladder and kidneys It will not be long before the disease has spread to all parts of your system. Carelessness at this stage of your illness is worse than criminal and if you thus suffer you should consult Dr. Branaman, Kansas City's great specialist, at once, and be cured quickly and perma nently.

Chief of Polled Hayes was served with notice yesterday that the city would bo held liable for all damages to property or persons "arising out of the present dinl cu'ties between the Typothetae and the printers. It read as follows: Kansas City. Mo.. Dec 9. 1SS9. John Hayes, Esq , Chief of Police. Kansas City. Mo. Dear Sir: Permit me to say that there can be no question or doubt that the personal violence resorted to recently, ana growing out 01 me present tine. as also the damage to property which happened last evening at the firm ot Burd & Fletcher, on West Sixth street. Is due to the fact of IneOclent police protection, because the police do not and will not disperse the crowds which congregate upon the streets and highways of this city and about the places of business of employing printers, all In viola tion ot the ordinances of this city. We hate several times urged upon the officials the necessity for action on their part. I can only say. now and finally, that this city will be held responsible for all damages to property, as well as damage to persons, growing out of the In efficient police protection. Very respectfully yours, T. It. MORROW. Last evening Chief Hayes sent a detail of ten patrolmen under command of Ser geant T. J. Young, to Burd & Fletcher's plant, at 12S West Sixth street. The officers arrived on the scene about 5 o'clock, but their uresence was en ouch to prevent any conflict. There was no large crowd of strikers or sympathizers, there being per haps a half dozen union printers. The men quit tneir work about 6 o clock, ana wnen they came out of the shop no one offered to approach them, and the men went to their respective boarding houses. At 8:43 Lieutenant Weber detailed two officers to go to the shop, as the men were working overtime, mere was no trouble reported by the officers. Printers Answer Typothetne. The striking printers Issued a lengthy statement yesterday In which they declared themselves satlsned with the progress of the strike. They repudiate as saults on non-union men. arguing that such a course would alienate public sympathy and prevent access to non-union men. They hold the Typothetae respon sible for the assaults. It was stated vestcrday that one of the members ot the Typothetae was approached yesterday by a local gang politician, who promised that If ho would withdraw from the Typotheate the suit to dissolve the lattervbrought by the attorney general would be withdrawn as to this member. Most Mutilate Some Stamps. A new order -was received from the commissioner of internal revenue at Washington, concerning the cancellation of documentary war stamps of high denomination, at the local office yesterday. The order Is that In all rases where a documentary stamp of the denomination of 10 cents or larger shall be used, the person using it snail, in aaaition to writing or stamping thereon with Ink the 'Initials of his name and the date when affized, mutilate the stamp by cutting three parallel Incisions lengthwise through the stamp, beginning not more than one fourth of an inch from one end ot the stamp and extending to within one-fourth ot an Inch of the other end. The order does not rerer to the stamps uea on checks, drafts or telegrams, but to those ued on large notes and other Instruments. The rule goes into effect December 13. The St. Paul's Episcopal church In Kan sas City, Kas., Is In the hands of Rev. Mr. John F. von Herrlich, who has assumed the pulpit with the determination of build ing up the church, enlarging its member ship and spreading the Episcopalian doc tilne In the metropolis. The church has experienced many unpleasant happenings during the past few years, and has worked under difficulties, and this fact alone was one of the principal inducements that caused the present rector to accept the call to,the local church. He had more flatter ing offers from other cities, but declined them all in order to try to place the St. Paul's church on tho basis on which it formerly stood. The last charge of Rev. Mr. von Herr-j Hch was at Wichita, Kas., where he suc ceeded in raising a debt against the church in that city amounting to $20,000. The lo cal church has a small debt hanging over It. and the efforts of other rectors have failed to improve the financial condition of the church. Trivial factional differences existed which former rectors were unable to straichten out. However, the new min ister has invaded the local field with a determination to Harmonize tne memoers of the church and make It what it should ue. He lias been well received by the con Eregatlon. and will doubtless be given the hearty support of a major portion of the membership in building up the church and widening its field. The members of the church gathered In Union Club hall last night for the purpose of tenderlnir the rector and his wife a formal reception. A very enjoyable time was had by all present until a late hour. Rev. and Mrs. von Herrlich proved to be the most companionable people, and the memoers wero HDeral in tneir congratula tions upon being so fortunate in getting such a man as Mr. von Herrlich as their rector. Mr. and Mrs. von Herrlich be came well acquainted with tho members of the church, and before the festivities closed they all practically agreed to render every possible assistance in building up the church and raising its debt. Rev. Mr. von Herrlich is a graduate of tho Columbia Law college, with a degree of LL. B., and is also a graduate of the Episcopal General Theological seminary, ot New York. He Is a man of large experi ences In the practical side of life; holds advanced ideas, which find a place In his teaching of the Scripture and preaching without apology. He is a pulpit orator ot unusual force and power, refined and cul tured. He is a man of untiring energy, having, by his own efforts, while rector of the Irving Memorial church, Tarrytown, If. T., paid off a debt of $23,000; while rec tor of the St,' Paul's church, at Sacra mento, Cal., ho raised a debt of $14,000 against that church; at Wichita, Kas., he succeeded in paying off a debt against that church amounting to $20,000, and comes to this city well recommended as a church debt-raiser. Among the numerous things that Rev. Mr. von Herrlich -has suggested to tho local church Is the erection of a handsome guild hall and the improvement of the church property. He proposes to have the St. Paul's church repaired and improved until it will present as pretty appearance as any church In the city. He enters upon his work here with the best feeling among tho members ot the church, and under his guidance it Is predicted that St. Paul's will bo placed among the strong organiza tions of the city. HARVE PULLEM IS SHOT. Ballet Enters the Right Breast of the Well Known Character, but He 3Iny Recover. Harve Pullmen was shot last night and probably fatally wounded while In a fight by John Bartlett, at 736 Armstrong avenue, Kansas City. Kas. The bullet entered the breastL on theright'1 sideband from "'the front. Dr. J. L. B. Eager dressed the wound. He said there was a possibility that Pullem may recover. There had been bad blood between the families of the Puliems and Bartletts and last night, Bartlett, who is a cripple, call ed on the police for protection and relief from Pullem, who he said was constantly badgering him. As he was returning to his home at 736 Armstrong avenue, at S o'clock he was met by Pullem and Richard Broom field, who were quarreling. At the sight of Bartlett Pullem seized a heavy board and started after him. Broomlield fired a pistol for the purpose, he said, of frighten ing Pullem. The shot fired by Broomlield entered Pullem's right leg. Pullem continued after Bartlett, who was backing away. Broomlield handed the smoking revolver to Bartlett, who aimed it at his assailant. At this moment Bart lett says he felt a heavy blow and knew nothing till he was on the police station. He was taken to Bethany hospital and Dr. Eager, the police surgeon, attended him. The bullet In the breast was found but the one in the leg was not located. The wounded man's condition at a late hour last night was such as to Incline the doctor to believe it possible for him to re cover. Harve Pullem, the wounded man, is one ot the best known characters in Wyan dotte. He is ever ready to fight if he fancies he has a grievance. His name oc curs more often on the police docket than that of any other man. He ekes out an existence by fishing and trucking.

It "Will Nominate a Presidential Ticket Next Year by Direct Vote. COLUMBUS, O., Dec 9. The Union Re form party will nominate, by direct vote, a presidential ticket in 1900 on the estab lished platform of the party, which con sists ot a single plank, advocating the in itiative and referendum method for all leg islation, both state and national. This de cision was reached to-day by the national executive committee of the party at a con ference in this city with the Ohio state executive committee. The representatives of the national committee present were: R. S. Thompson, chairman, Ohio: J. M. Dunlap, Franklin, Ind.; E. A. Richelberger, secretary, Baltimore: F. A. Naiile, Phil adelphia, and W. J. Seelye, Worcester. A proposition to consider the advisabil ity of fusion with tho Democratic party on presidential candidates was promptly de feated as was also a suggestion to en large the platform of the party. It was decided to nominate state tickets In every stnt where nn organization can be ef fected. Conventions for the nomination of candidates will be abolished, the national committee recommending thnt hereafter all candidates, according to the principles of the party, be chosen by direct vote of the party membership. This rule will ap ply to the national ticket and to state and county tickets in Ohio, at least. The pri mary plan ot nominations is recommended for other states. The union reform party had state tickets this fall in Ohio. Mary land and Pennsylvania, and National Chairman Thompson says the party ex pects to effect an organization in a num ber ot other states in the near future. Had a Resnlatlon Coat. John B.

An American com mittee to aid Red Cross work In the South African war, with special references to the wounded of both belligerents within the Boer lines, has been formed for the pur pose of affording a way by which the gifts of the American people for such work may be sent to the right place. The committee has made arrangements, for the present at least, to make use of The Netherlands Red Cross, a responsible organization in the field, insuring the prompt and effective use of every dollar contributed and will also avail Itself of such other means of accomplishing its ob ject, as may be devised by the central Red Cross committee at Geneva. The American committee has received numerous offers from doctors and nurses who have volunteered for services in South Africa, but these it has been" compelled to decline, as the committee does not under take to send either doctors or nurses to South Africa, but merely to aid the Red Cross work In that respect.

Superstition seriously disturbed a din ner at which many prominent New York ers were present recently. The dinner was given at Delmonico's by members of the plan and scope committee of the Dewey celebration. .Covers had been laid for fif teen guests. The committee was about to sit down when some one noticed that the absence ot Mayor Van Wyck and Comp troller Coler reduced the number of diners to tnirieen. There was an immediate nrntoor Ao n- expedlent it was suggested that one of the gue3t bo served at a table apart from the others. Even this did not satisfy the superstitious ones. Finally two guests wero recruited from members or the or chestra present, and the committee gather ed around the board. KNOWS EVERYD0G IN TOWN. Former Llirhtnlnir Calculator of th Treasury Can Tell the Owner ship of WashlnBton Cars. From the New York Sun. The man who knows everybody, and ths way to every place In the town where ha lives. Is quite common. But there is a man in Washington who was born and railed here," as the native Wushlngtonlan speaks it, who knows everybody's dog, and the dog's name. lie will stand on a corner and point them out as they travel hither nnd yon. He was In front ot Wlllard's tha other day when a cur of low degree poked his nose around the corner. "That's Beriah Wllkins" dog." he said to' his acquaintance, who also prides himself upon knowing a good deal about every thing in Washington." "It looks more like Jim Riley's dog," said the acquaintance. "Jim ttiiey s uog uon i wear any collar," replied the authority. " 'Cause that dog wears a collar It's no sign he's Beriah Wllklns' dog." "No, that's so. But Beriah's dog has got a goitre In his neck, and is a little oft In cne eye." The authority whistled to the cur, and when he came up familiarly the authority showed his friend the marks of Mr. Wll klns' dog. This led to a bet that the au thority could name the owner of every doff that passed the corner, and in thirty min utes lie called the ownership of fourteen, and offered as testimony of his claim to follow the dogs home. It may have been a bluff, but people who know say It wasn't. Not only does he declare that he knows these things, but he offers a wager that ha can tell the ownership of the dogs by their bark. This man was at one time known us tha lightning calculator et the treasury depart ment, and now sell3 dogs for a livelihood. More Smallpox Quarantine.
