book, music and production, is coming
to the Auditorium to-morrow night with
gorgeous costumes. elaborate scenery,
clean, wholesome comedy, haunting mel

bewitching girls. William Moore, the1
leading comedian, is the bright particu-

with a big company of nearly fifty en
tertainers. My Soldier Girl is the work '
of J. Lorch Baber that he succeeded
in his efforts is attested by the remark
able hits scored by this brilliant musical
comedy. Comedy predominates My Sol
dier Girl, but the delicious foolishness
is interspersed by charming musical 1
numbers introduced by a remarkabb
chorus of singing and dancing ensembles
fetchingly. No more gorgeous costumes t
have been designed for any of the great (
successes than are included in thisbril-,

bewildering from the opening of the first j
act, showing a grand lawn fete in pro-j

er Ioeal Agent I'ries Offered.
The supply of Christmas seals to b"
sold' by local school children to raise
money to light tuberculosis have been re
ceived and will be distributed in the pub
lic schools tomorrow morning.
The seals are printed by the National
Tuberculosis association, are sold for one
cent each, and are on sale this month in
every state and territory of the United
States. They are used particularly on
Christinas letters and packages, and the
profits from the sale, with the exception of
five per cent, are used in the states where
the feals are sold.
In Vermont the sale is in charge of the
Vermont Tuberculosis association. The
association announces that arrangement';
have been completed to have the seals on
sale in every town in the state. This has
been made possible largely by the co-operation
of the Vermont Federation of
Woman's clubs, the school teachers and
.the children.
Mrs. W. V. Slack, president of the
Vermont Federation of ..Woman's , clubs,
has written to every club urging it to as
sist in the sale of the scads. All over tin
slate there are thousands of leagues of.
Modern Health Crusaders. The children
of these leagues, led by' their teachers, are
all willing to sell the seals.
The Vermont Tuberculosis association
offers three prizes to children as follows:
For sellincr ."0 seals, a year's subscription
to the children's monthly health paper, the
Modern Health Crusader; for selling 100
seals, a bangle pin ; and for selling L'OO
seals, a health ruler.
l'.anners also are given to the towns
selling tlio highest number of seals per
capita. Last year the winners were St.
