and most equipped colored theatrical
organization offers this season. It is
in three acts and was written by S. U.
Sassin. S. II. Dudley, a comedian of
exceptional skill and, versatility, is at
the head of this sterling troupe, and as
Hezekiah Doo, a politician pro tern, is
irresistible. He lias a role that is brim
ful of opportunities for evoking healthy
laughter, and Mr. Dudley does it ample
justice. The production is bright, wit
ty and tuneful from start to finish. The
supporting cast is composed of CO peo
ple chosen for both looks and ability,
half of which is a fascinating beauty
chorus. This attraction will be seen at
the Illinois theater Friday, Nov. CO.
Created Another Character. It may
not be centrally known to those who
are familiar with Vincent Serrano's
great success as Lieutenant Denton, the
young cavalry hero In "Arizona," that
at first he created and played the part
of "Tony,", the little Spaniard, who
plays the mandolin so artistically and
sings so beautifully. He also wrote the
music which Tony sings. Mr. Serranj
was taught Spanish by his father, who
was born in Spain. Mr. Serrano will be
ren in the part of Major Dale in Louis
Evan Shipman's new war-time play.

Act as Detectives. An excellent mel
odrama will be seen at the Illinois
theater Wednesday night, Nov. 28, in
troducing the Russell brothers, those
Iopular imitators of female Irish char
acters. The play is called "The Great
Jewel Mystery," and is replete with
sensational situations and the narrow
escapes common to the detectives, in
the first act a robbery is so cleverly
arranged and perpetrated that the au
dience will admit it to be a mystery
impossible to clean up, and herein
commences the work of two Irishmen
who, by assuming disguises and play
ing female roles, accomplish a victory
which the ioIice could never hope to

upon the discovery of a love letter in
an old bureau, by husband No. 2 of
Madame Revillion. whien arouses sus
picion and leads to an indefinite variety
of complicated comedy situations, to
gether with some dramatic disclosures
which bring cut all the force of Miss
Virginia Harnett's characteristic read
ing. The success of the play lies in
the rapidity of action, the situations
shifting with kaleidoscopic swiftness
and it is in this sort of interpretation
that Miss Harned is at her best. Miss
Harned has surrounded herself with an
unusually capable cast, including such
well known players as Eleanor Nor
etti, who plays opposite to Miss Har
ned; William Courtenay, husband No.
2 of the matrimonial complexity; Al
bert Gran, who was with Mrs. Patrick
Campbell in "The Love Letter," plays
the very necessary role of the cynic;
V. J. Ferguson, the well known come
dian, who is fitted with an admirable
part in the side-splitting role of the
Tust husband; Sydnic Sterling and Al
bert Sackett. The entire action of the
piece is in Paris, the first scene being
that of the Kevillion's flat; the second
Thomas is the bright, particular come
dienne who carries the feature part.
and she is ably seconded by a number
of other very clever people. And there
is the ubiquitous chorus girl, frollick
ing and gaily clad, whose maneuvers
are the life of the play.

The impression prevails that the fur
bearing animals of this section are
about all killed off, but the fact is there
are many hundreds of dollars worth of
furs taken each season by the trappers
that follow the river, bayous and
sloughs, plying the arts of their indus
try. To be sure, beaver and otters are
extinct so far as this section goes, but
thousands of muskrats and hundreds of
minks are taken each fall and winter.
In proof of this statement is noticed
yesterday a shipment of furs at Clin
ton. Iowa, by Daniel Hollinshead of
Ustick, 111., who has been a buyer in
Whiteside county for years.
He had 1,137 muskrat skins, 2S mink,
10 skunk, 4 raccoon and 1 opossum for
his first shipment.
The smaller fur-bearing animals are
said to be unusually plentiful this fall
and the trappers along the Mississippi
river and sloughs north of here have
been very fortunate in their operations
Muskrats and skunks particularly have
been plentiful and many have been
trapped of late.
The new railway legislation will have
a direct effect upon the length of the
holiday excursion period throughout the
territory of the Western Passenger as
sociation. Where heretofore the rates
of a fare and one-third for the holidays
have gone into effect Dec. 23 for Christ-j
mas, they will go into effect Dec. 2D ,
this year and' will be good to and in
cluding Dec. 23, as of yore. 1
For New Year's the low rate will be
effective going Dec. 30, 31, and Jan. 1,
and good for return up to and includ
ing Jan. 7. It is presumed that the
reason for this is that it will be impos
sible hereafter to give students low
holiday rates for their holidays with
out extending the same privileges to
the general public. So the plan of. ex
tending the time of holiday rates so
that students may make use of them as
far as possible has been hit upon. i

Quinine and rum and a -whole lot of
other things are pleasant to rub on the
scalp after washing it free of dandruff,
but not one preparation of the general
run cures dandruff and falling hair. It
Is necessary to kill that germ to be
permanently cured of dandruff, and to
stop falling hair. Newbro's Herpicide
will positively destroy that germ, so
that there can be no more dandruff,
and so that the hair will grow luxur
