Green. Stockings, With Strong Company, the Attraction at the Auditorium. A K. V. Mason's popular comedy, (ireen Stocking, which has lcen a success since its inital pel in inancc, is said to he one of the nmst ingenious and cleverest comedies of the p.u-t pressno of the lecaue tively new m ; treatnient theme, and skill, that is work on the sta with pre-eminent The plot of the seasons.

Colonel Smith, of the army to whom she addresses an imaginary letter, which she never intended to be mailed, but which cupid manages to slip into the out-going post. .After an expiration of some months, to which the topic of her engagement to Smith is one that is freely discussed in the household much to t'clia's discomfor ting, she seeks to dispose of Colonel Smith through a death notice in the London pa per, ltut the letter (visionary) reaches its destination and Colonel Smith, u ho with much amusement has read hi pub lished obituary, appears on the scene. Here is where the interest kindles and it takes no great stretch of imagination to see that much humor is imparted from this part of the play on. Jt is keenly humor ous, keen and wholesome. There is a sparkle in every line. The characters stand out with eminent distinction ami every situation is potent to please. It is original because it presents no deep prob lems to solve, and never stretches a spec tator on the rack of dramatic suspense, l'.ut it is a delightful page from the book of life, a vei v genuine bit of intimate do mestic comedy, but deals delightfully with the subject in a most humorous and whole some way.

I. K. Leach, who has been appointed superintendent of carriers, a new po sition in connection with the local postotlice, has had his troubles for some weeks preparing; for the change, and while final approval of all the i-hanyes has not been received from Washington it is expected here that thev will be approved as the most fea sible solution of the problem. In any event 1 rat t leboro has gained another carrier, who began work this morning. He is only an auxiliary car rier and as such this particular law does not affect his hours of labor. But that fact alone gives opportunity to have him work at the carriers' win dow evenings and he also will do what Sunday work is required of the car riers. Besides that the Fort Hummer Heights section, which has been with out carrier service heretofore, has been added to the districts covered by car riers, beginning to. lay. The main business section of the town has not been deprived of any deliveries by this change. The carriers' window is not to be closed, as in many offices in the coun try, unless the postal authorities so or der it. The new arrangement provides for the window being open as it has been heretofore, although the amount of mail delivered there is ridicously small in proportion to the number of inquiries made each evening during the half hour the window is open. It merely goes to show that many go there to have an excuse to leave their homes at night. The stamp window and the money order department will be open during the same hours as in the past, providing the authorities at Washington do not order some change livery in the old district at 9.15. other delivery of the dav will be same as formerly. 8.

To make up for this increase in his route he will make no noon collection. F. K.

He said these words let us know the in nermost thoughts of Jesus in the su preme crisis of his life. When Jesus came into that upper room with his mind full of the most exalted thoughts found his disciples quarreling- as who should be the greatest. When he to our Lord was about to die for them He said that there was not one of the company ready to stoop to wash the feet of the other, therefore He per formed the courtesy as it was one of the customs of that period.

Mrs. Mabel Mills, wife of a wealthy land owner of San Autonio, Tex., lies under the .are of physicians in an Kv anston (III.) hospital", after either hav ing lost or been robbed of about $4.'!, r0i in that city Saturday night. Mrs. Mills is suffering from a wound in the back of her head, but is uncertain whether she was felled by a blow and robbed, or whether she fainted and sus tained the injurv bv a fall to the side walk. "It is one of the strangest stories that ever came to my attention," said Chief of Police Shaffer of Kvanston. "There seems to be about six different mysteries that have to be solved in stead of one.'' According to informa tion obtained by the police, Mrs. Mills went to Chi.-ago from .-sail Antonio less than a week ago and registered at a leading hotel. Shortly before noon Sat urday she is supposed to have drawn Io.imio from a bank, and on returning to the hotel to have given the money into the care of the cashier, receiving a receipt therefor. When she returned for the money a short time later, it is said, she discovered that she had lost the receipts, but as she had made her self known to the cashier she succeeded in getting the money without trouble. In the afternoon she went to Kvans ton to attend a winner at the home of a friend, carrving the 4."JMH) iu a (large brown handbag, a part of it being in a small purse inside the larger bag.

The police are unable to understand why Mrs. Mills rode beyond her station on her return to Kvanston and why the scene of her mi-hap should have been several blocks from the house at which she applied for aid. That she had the money was established by eyewitnesses. A theory is that Mrs. Mills was dazed by a fall and wandered away without looking for her handbag, which was af terward fonn f and rifled. It was said at the hospital that Mrs. Mills is suffering from conmision of the brain and that her condition is. serious j She also is ill from expousure.
