There is unusual interest in the forthcoming production of A. II. Woods' notable force comedy suc cess. "Parlor, Bedroom and Bath," which will be presented at the Au ditorium Thursday, March 0th, for one-half week. It comes here after an engagement of more than seven months at the Republic Theatre, New York, where It continued well into the summer, playing lo capacity .mdicnri'.s. It is said lo have scored more laughs than any play on the .New ork Mage last season, l.eriatn- ly lew plays have received sticlt en Ihusiaslic approval from the New York press. The livening Mail call ed it "two hours of laughter."' The New York Tribune declared that it had "more fizz than 'Fair and Warm er." ' Tiie play presents one of the most extraordinary and amusing plots seen on the slage in many sea sons. It concerns the pscudo ro mantic adventures of an innocent youg husband who is compelled to pretend to a life of amorous experi ence in order lo please his romantic ally adoring wife. As a result of his deception lie finds himself, much against his will, in a secluded way side inn, in a compromising position, with more ladies than he had bar gained for. The resulting situation kept all New York and Chicago 'aligning an entire year, and prom ises to repeal its performance in To ledo. A. H.

The war Is tenching the rations of the eaith how much they have been throwing away. Germany was supply ing the world with potash, and as tlio supply has been cut off there, France, England and the United States liavo been put to It to supply the great need of this Important product. Tito latest discovery of a largo source of potash, which has been over looked, was rr.at'e by Prof. 11. A. Bur roll of London, win shows that Eng land is throwing away tons of potash In a very usable form. lie has made a special study of tho ashes dorlved from binning tobacco, in pipe, cigar and cigarrotte, and ho has proved tlmf. 30 per cent of tho tobacco is preserved ns ashes, and that from theso ashes may bo ex tracted 20 pur cent of potash and 5 to G per cent of anhydrous phosphorus. Ho found that a cigar weighing two ounces left more than one-half ounco or ash, which yielded 1 per cent of pntauh. Twenty cigarettes weighing a little more than one ounco yielded one-third of an ounce of ash and one twentieth of an ounce of potash, and a pipe stuffed with tobacco gavo a similar percentage of ash and potash. lln claims tli&t it would be well worth while to collect tobacco ashes, ( specially where much smoking is Hi lie, as in the clubs and hotels anil i. . taurants. On one da- Prc.fcssor Burrcll cot lee od neatly three ounces in ;; hotel lolbv, over throe ounces in a rcstaur .v t and near'" fourteen ounces ftom a I! r-tpf where smoking was pet milted. l"p figured that as England smokes 45,211 tons of tobacco a year, they would get i::,."i3 tons of allies and 2.7 15 tons of potash by saving tho a 5 he 3. In ihp United States tho consump tioa of tobacco is far greater. We produce mow than 1,000,000,000 po'tnds, wo Impoit ovct '.j.OOO.OOO pound-, ft om Cuba ami l'orto Rico, beside-- imported cigars eottii.g more than $1,000,000 a -ear. Wc export over 200,000,000 pounds, and $G,000,00J woi'h of manufactured tobaccr and cigaiy. but our consumption is more than 700,000,000 pounds a year. This would yield over 220,000,000 pounds of ashes, from which o would 3ecuro more than 44,000,000 pounds of potarh and some 10,000,000 pound? of anhydrous phosphorus. The value of both of these products has increased so enormously sir.co the war began that it Is cany to see how we are flicking away something like 550,000,000, which could c-.slly bo saed by gathering the ashes from all 'the ash leceivers and sellins thotn to chemists who are equipped to ex tract tho potash and phospo-us. The Only One. A benevolent and pious old lady In one of the streets which still retain the red brick houses of old time New York looked out her parlor window one day and saw a man walking up and down tho sidewalk, apparently in great dejection. There was some thing pathetic and appealing In his manner; so she took a dollar bill, put It in an envelope, and wrote on the envelope, "Never say die." She slip ped out of the house in the most cas ual manner she could assume and handed the envelope to tho man as she passed htm. Next day the same melancholy man called at her house and presented her with ten dollars. "It's funny," lie said, "you're the only ono that backed that horse called Never Say Die.'"
