Wilkes Company Shows Cleverness
In Comedy, 'The House Next Door'
Manager Worley of the Em
presa theater lias outdone I)iln
tel f.
Hla production yesterday of
the Hartley Manners' comedy,
"The House Next Door," was In
every way better thau the road
company's play, which came to
the Tacoma theater two years
■go. It is some praise, to say
that a stock company has out
rivaled a traveling company di
rect from Broadway, New York
city.
"The House Next Door" needs
Bo introduction. It has been
Tead In story form by thousands.
It Is the tale of racial prejudice
—an Englishman's hatred of a
Jew neighbor. The son of one
family falls In love with the
daughter of the other, and the
English father's emotion is so
great that he would rather see
the happinesa of his offspring
sacrificed than countenance a
marriage. He later learns that
the Jew has done blni unknown
favors throughout his life, aud
that he Is financially and mor
ally his debtor. Tlie play enu>
happily. Although possessing
dramatic climaxes, "The House
Next Door" is built on comedy
lines, and there are many situa
tions that bring out good healthy
laughs.
The company Is admirably
cast, Norman Hackett appearing
in the role of the Kngllah father,
and Miss Phoebe Hunt In the
character of hla daughter.
CITY WILL SELL
COPPER AS JUNK
Taking advantage of the pres
ent high price of copper, the city
light department will junk a
large quantity of obsolete elec
trical apparatus stored In the
19th street power house. The
apparatus Includes transformers
and other electrical machinery
which has been supplanted by
more modern devices.
Miss Mm -ji .rie Booth, wlmi
proves her ability this week by
her characterization of r-.ili.-r
!■'.. I'Mii. daughter of Hir Isaac
.lHeoh«eil, In "The House Next
Door."
Famous Actor
With Whiteside
Leonard Mudie, who la this
season appearing as Llndlner,
the dissolute Herman arttat in
Walker Whltealde's fine produc
tion of "Tlie Typhoon," which
comes to the Tacoma theater
next Tuesday for two nights, has
scored heavily in this exacting
role. Mr. Mudie is better known
In England than upon this aide
of the Atlantic. He has ap
peared in important rolea in the
companies of Sir Herbert Tree,
1 Sir Henry Irving and other actor
managers of note.

OUT OF WORK FOR IX)NG,
Therein lies the secret of their
exiiKiition, though their dally j
stunt Is often 20 hours in the
dory and the icing pens.
These modern Vikings makel
their own conditions, largely, i
And they stick with the trawls I
lifetime, or until the perils of
their calling pull them down.
Hum Are at Work
More than 4000 of them range:
the .Northwest banks, from thei
Columbia to Kodiak, -supplying;
II per cent of all the halibut |
used in the United States.
The commercial side of the in
dustry is told in market reports
—65,(100,000 pounds taken dur
ing Hi] 5, with a return of near
$4,000,000 to the men and the
vessel owners from the dealers.
But pounds nnd dollar marks
don't tell the story.
The classic of the halibut is
written at sea, in dangers and
wrecks; in titanic labors; In hero
i'un never chronicled, and in the
wonderful team spirit of the 4 000
he-men who hundle the trawls.
Bower Replaces Bulls
Power schooners have taken
the place of the Yankee Ball on
the Pacific. And power has set a
terrific pace among the halibut
catchers.
Each vessel carries from four
to ten dories, from which the men,
two to every boat, heave the long,
many-hooked trawl lines and lift
them again. Nets, spread In the
dories, when filled with fish are
hove aboard the schooner with a
winch.
From 4 o'clock In the morning
until past midnight, when on the
banks, tlie dorymen do not rest,
save for the call of the cook.
The small boats are dropped
over side while the schooner la
under way, and are picked up
again at dark in the same way.
The day's catch is eviscerated and
packed in ice in the vessel's hold
after the men come aboard at
night.
Three Hours' Sleep
For perhaps three hours they
sleep like dead men, without even
removing their boots. Then the
cook's gong again—the cook who
is master of the fo-caatle.
Until the schooner's fish bunk
ers are filled—from four to fottr
teen days—this terrific pace •?»
kept up by the men WITHOUT
BEING DRIVEN.
FOCR-FIFTHS OF THE EN
TIRE CATCH COES TO THE
FISHERMEN, THE REMAINDER
TO THE VESSEL'S OWNER. The
crew pays all expenses of the trip,
in the independent schooners, and
divides the residue in equal
shares.
That, with youth and health
and the viking spirit, is moment
um enough.
It ia no berth for a shirker or
a weakling. A drone ia a dividend
reducer, robbing hla doryroates.
Not Lacking In Peril
The best halibut banks He up
against the Alaskan coast, where
storms break furiously; where fog
and reef and ley waters apell
const ant peril.
Sometimes six dories go over
side In the morning, and but five
are picked up at night. Where or
how the ill-fated boat with ita
two men has disappeared no man
will ever know.
The halibut men expect that,
accepting it with fatalistic calm.
Without these dangers, the men
tell me, they would find the life!
too tame. It's chance and the tin-!
known that lure them.
And the fellow who hesitates
or whimpers is a shame to hlg
crew. He's not of the halibut
clan. And next trip another sits
in his dory.
Three Features

Instead of nasty, harsh pills,
salts, castor oil or dangerous cal
omel, why don't you keep Cas
carets handy In your home? Cas
. ..i.ms act on the liver and thirty
feet of bowels so gently you don't
realize yon have taken a cathar
tic, but they act thoroughly and
can be di ■ rniled upon when a
good liver and bowel cleansing
is necesoary— they move the bile
and poison from the bowels with
out griping and sweeten the
stomach. You eat one or two at
night like candy and you wake
up feeling fine, the headache,
biliousness, bad breath, coated
tongue, sour stomach, constipa
tion, or bad cold disappears.
Mothers should give croaa, sick,
feverish or bilious children a
whole Caacaret any time—they
are harmless und safe for the lit
