A corps ;f trained nurses led by Miss Blanch Bates is the latest Chi cago development of the Uuian-.Jn- anehe war. Miss Hates corps .f nurses will assist the Japanese forces th-it is. if her offer is accepted. They will be tendered through Or. Nicholas Senn. who'is expected to have charts of the field hospital work of the .Ja iiiicst' army. Miss Hates, who lived in Japan for four years and is acquaint ed with many t.f the prominent cili ens of the country, declares she i. deeply attached to the Flowery king dom, 'i he corps, it is proposed, will be orani.e;l in Chicago at Mi Mates' I'xpenve. Several f her theatrieal friends are expected to assist her, but Ihe working members of the corps will be selected from traininir .schools and hospitals. A major porti.n of the difficulties which are reported to have beset Walker Whiteside during- the past two days appear from a later and more severe scrutiny of the facts to be re duced to a mere matter of vengeance on the part of the discharged thes pians of Mr. Whiteside's company rather than an affair f despotic over bcarance by Mr. Whiteside. Kngaging stories of hard luck frt rn the lips of the sometime l-aertes to the effee that Mr. Whiteside is a tyrant and rulhlesslv sla.-hc:! the salary roll in twain for the repair of his own for tunes are denied with a vehemence by those who wer) intimately acquainted with the detail.- of he transactions lending i:p t the loss of several courtiers of he terpischorcan muse in f lif employ of Mr. Whiteside. Thurs day four member.; of the company v.t're dropped from tin salary roll, the reason for which Mr. Whiteside ha ina'c public after hearing the tntet:ients of the released actors, be can'? they were lacking in ability to o:v;;y !iiike.)iai'!in roles assijrne-.l I them. Early in the season when Mr. vvnuesice visitett hock island jn ms C(miiy, "We Are Kins'. these actors were in his cast, ami while proving themselves capable of meritorious w rk in this play, they were not deem ed able to carry out the more severe task of delineating Shnkespeare. Af- nated jn the bond." The discharjreJ thespians stated that in response to an appeal from Mr. Whiteside they had voluntarily lowered their salaries to a point far below an adequate com pensation for their abilities and Had contributed in many other ways 10 the financial dramatic worth of the production. an. 'I yet they received thanks with the reverse Knavish. It is n;t rt all surprising that "The Silver Slipper."" John C. Fisher's mu sical play, should have interested New- Yorkers for six months, and when it quickly become popular. One num ber in particular that will be bound to stand out very strong is the "Four and Twenty Little Men." 5if by Ann Tyrell. assisted by a chorus of :.4 wo men and "4 men. This soji-t is novel in effect and is a catchy tune. The 1M men taking part are seated in chairs arranged in slantin.tr line across the .-tape.

"You and Me." "Two Kyes of Hlue." "Tessie. You are the Only. Only." and "She Didn't Knew Km ugh About the Game." .The : ensation of the play will be found in the "champagne dance." in which six young women in black embroidered dresses, and six vonng nieu a owned" as waiters 'part ici- - i ; . --- .. .,: - .'.ft-'.

The "iris are considered the best dancers from (icorge Mdvv aides' Lon don Gaiety theatre, and were brought to this country under contract to Mr. Fisher e-pocially for this dance.

The company is one of the highest sal aried ever sent on tour. in a musical comedy and numbers l-." in all. The announced attraction here next Wednesday is the very popular produc tion of the musical farce comedy, "Happy Hooligan. which comes to us this season as an entirely new produc tion, embellished with new and taste ful scenery. As the costumes and scenery are new. so are alsi the specialties, music, dancers and en sembles. There Is a cheelfulness and gaiety about Mr. Opper's genial hobo, which, when put in dramatic form, makes his influence well nigh irresis tible. When the curtain goes up the most chronic case of dejection gives way to good feeling, and the misau tlm c becomes at once a creature who views life with rays of the sun shining in his mind. There are no dumps, blue devils, vapors, megrim or hypochondriasis in "Happy Hooli gan." Indeed there is life, alacrity of spirit and pure hilarity, which never fails to siuoith the ruffled brow of care and palliate menancholy. W. H. Mack will be seen this season as the hobo, and .Mae Phelps as Mischief. Others of prominence in the company are Campbell and Caulfield. Harry S. McKee. Alice Gilmore. Mabel Stanley, Helen Donnelly. Lillian 1'obson. Kva Ta.vlor. Hessie Sharp and the famous F.oston quartet. Wonderful Advance of Science. Wonderful as were the scientific achievements of the 101 h century, it seems certain that, in the domain of applied science and invention, the -0th century will far surpass it. We doubt very much, how ever, that anyone "w ill be able to produce a safer or more reliable remedy for stomach, liver or kidney ill than Hostetter's Stomach Hitters. It was a 1'Jth century pro duction, being first introduced .10 years ago. and to this day represents the limit of science in producing a remedy that will positively cure loss of appetite, sour ' stomach, impure blood, indigestion, dyspepsia, liver ami kidney troubles and malaria.
