There are other wonderful things in the r.cw Hippodrome spectacle. "America." The Panama canal Fcene Is, perhaps, the greatest tri umph of stagecraft. A most realistic representation of a section of the great waterway extend, across the enormous stuge. and through it there passes majestically a huge steamship. A fire scene, too , Is particularly well done. An east Bide tenement burns, nndithoro are thrilling rescues by firemen who slide down ropes from the fourth story with their un corscIoiik burdens, leaps from the room Intoinets held below, and other startling performances. More daring, however, than, any of the feats in the firo spectacle is the performance of four men who ride down a mountain road In an automo bilo wh'ch strikes a bump at a sharp turn, makes a half somersalt and la-nds. bottom upward.

AND MAY BELLE MAC DO NA LD, ONE OF THE PRINCIPALS IN THE NEW PRODUCTION, "AMERICA." disposing of a fine collection of paint ings gathered by the aforesaid mil lionaire from the art centers of the world. This is the situation when the cur tain goes up on the first act of "Offi cer CCC," the farce which will be pre sented at the Oliver Saturday, matinee and night, Sept. 27. In working out the story of the play, the rich young man induces a policeman on his block to lend him his uniform, and while he is masquer ading as a "copper" to catch the burglar, the real officer becomes the millionaire's cook. The burglar, in the meantime is allowed to continue in possession of the bachelor's quarters, but is eventually trapped and com pelled to return his plunder. All these events are worked out with speed and precision during tho three acts in which Augustin MacHugh, the author of "Officer 6C6," takes to tell the story that is said to be chock full of surprising situations, smart chatter and snappy epigrams. Till: IlLVE MOUSI Get Ready! Get Set! Go, by all means to the Auditorium next week, for it is to be "fun week" at the pop ular playhouse and rollicking comedy will bo the order of things as the Grayce Scott players will present one of the funniest plays ever written, "The Blue Mouse." The late Clyde Fitch wrote many plays and wrote with remarkable rn-f pidity and wonderful success, yet no play that bears his name proved so popular and such a laugh producer and chaser of the blues as the comedy which ran for one year at the Lyric theater. New York, and which the popular players will present here be ginning with net Sunday's matinee. The situations of the play are unique, the fun begins with the rise of the curtain and you will never stop laughing until long after you have left the theater. The story concerns Au gustus Lewellyn. the "president of a railroad, who has a weakness for pret ty women, and his secretary, Augus tus Rollette who is ambitious to be promoted to be division superintend ent of the railroad. Rollette has se cretly been married and is seeking the promotion in order to make a hit with his father-in-law. Knowing Ixuv ellyn's weakness, Rollette. for a stipu lated sum engages a celebrated Salome dancer known as the "Blue Mouse" because of her size and the color of the gowns she always wears, to ap pear as his wife and weedle the old man into promoting her supposed hus band. Of course Lewellyn, in the presence of the "Blue Mouse" forgets that there, is a Odrs. Lewellyn and that she is very jealous, until she happens in his office and then the real Mrs. Rollette appearing on the scene to gether with several others who hap pen to show up at the wrong time, a series of complications follow that are guaranteed to exceed the speed limit on hilarity and to make one's sides mi lit ' - ache with laughter until the last mo ment of the play.

N. Newman, who comes to the Oliver opera house on five successive Tuesdays, beginning October 14. The new subjects will embrace "London," "Paris." "Rome." "Florence and Venice" and "Vienna." Europe's moat interesting cities. Mr. Newman spent six months In these cities during the past spring and sum mer, so that his color-views and motion-pictures are all new and will show the objects of greatest interest, from a literary, historical and artis tic view-point. It is Mr. Newman's purpose to portray different phases of the life from those before present ed by travel-lecturers. SUPIHUXTEXDEXT MOVES. A suite of rooms for the city school superintendent has been provided, and are now ready for occupancy in the new high school building, and SAYS HE ALKI LOST HIS JOB An Elkhart Man, Who Fills a Responsible and Important Position, Nearly Loses It on Account of III Health. Mr. V. H. Martin of Elkhart, Ind., who has suffered from Epilepsy for many years, in a letter to the public tells ot the pitiful condition he was in and recommends others who are suf lenng to seek the source from which he found relief. Mr. Martin writes as lollows: To the Public: "1 am so pleased over the results of treatment given me by the United Doctors, that 1 feel it my duty as well as a pleasure to write a testimonial, in the hope that It may be the means of getting some other poor unfortun ate to a place where they can not orjy get relier, and cure, but get it on sci entific principles. 1 was a sulftrer for a long time from an affliction called Epilepsy and for six months before 1 came to the United Doctors, I was having one and two attacks a week, gradually growing worse until I got so that when 1 had them 1 would tall whenever a seizure came on me. I have an important and responsible position in a factory here and my con dition had got to the- point where, I would lose my job If something wasn't done. "In my desperate state I called on thepe noted specif lists on Apr. 3th, j 1913. The physician In charge gave me a most rigid and thorough exami- ! nation and after he was through he offered me great encourdgement. I went there expecting to be turned down, as they positively refuse to treat cases they are not certain of handling successfully. Imagine the Joy of myself and wife when he Doc tor gave me his assurance. I have taken their treatment regular and now after six weeks' treatment have had but one attack and that a very light one. Quite different from hav ing two and three attacks a week. The officials at the factory where I work, my friends and relatives, as well as myself are rejoiced at my present condition and I feel sure of getting permanently well. "The mystery of the whole business is, that 1 haven't lost a day's work since I began their treatment, and I would recommend all sufferers to call on them for an examination, which is free. Me and my wife can't say too much for tho United Doctors and their methods. "YV. H. MARTIN." 219 Jackson St. Dr. Bartlett the specialist in charge of tht SouC Bend Institute of the United Doctors has for many years made a careful study of the various forms of Epilepsy with th? result that he has been enabled to relieve many unfortunate people who were suffer ing with this dreaded disease.

Last night was amateur night at the Columbia and it proved to be one continual round of laughs, applause and an occasional shout of "Get the hook." Some of South Bend's best talent and otherwise was on the boards and it was greeted by a ca pacity house. The lirst on the bill was Leeper and Thompson, in a "comedy" sketch, but their comedy was too deep, in fact so deep that they were afraid to come on when th prizes were award ed. Following them was Pauline Fogler in a solo, "Robt. E. Lee," and she was awarded the third prize. Next came two little tots. Harold and Bernice Bourdon, who sang some very pleasing songs and at the finish were given the second prize. "Prof." Powers added to the fun by getting out of a box with a false side. Little Miss Irene llcpner sang "Snooky- n r3 n mm t Today and Tomorrow to Hear Those Versatile Musicians, THE UMHOLZ BROS. They're Great. SMITH AND ARADH i A JU. M.
