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.

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
ache with laughter until the last mo
ment of the play.

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

he found relief. Mr. Martin writes as
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

get relier, and cure, but get it on sci
entific principles. 1 was a sulftrer for
a long time from an affliction called

came to the United Doctors, I was
having one and two attacks a week,

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

The officials at the factory where I

is, that 1 haven't lost a day's work
