"Honeymoon Trail." Dorothy Rren
ner, the dainty comedienne who will be
"Sergeant Kitty," she originated the
leading part in "The Seminary Girl,"
'Bossy" in "Coming Thro' the Rye,"
and various ether musical shows, until
she was fortunate enough to be chosen
for the leading comedienne roles in
the New Orleans Opera company, in
which city she made a trenemdous hit.
"Those two seasons in New Orleans,"
says Miss Brenner, "with a new opera
to study every week, did me more good
than words can express, and now I am
confident that I can, at least, play any
part offered me, no matter how short
the notice. It was very hard work, and
anyone that thinks 'show' business is
art idle luxurious life, will soon find out
their mistake if they ever try a season
with a repertoire company."
Honeymoon Trail was on the boards
in Moline yesterday at the Moline, and
played to two good houses. It proved
one of the best attractions of the sea
son in Moline.
"Girls" Tonight. The attraction at
the Illinois this evening will be Clyde
Fitch's enormous comedy success,
"Girls," which is now in its second
season at Daly's theater, New York.
The play deals with three pretty bach
elor girls living in a studio in New
York, who have taken a hat-pin oath
to always remain man-haters. They
live a jolly existence in an atmosphere
of chafing dishes and alcohol cookery,
company is one of the most ludicrous
bits of comedy that has ever been of
fered in this city. The Henderson
company is composed of Harry Wright,
Ed Smalley, George Gibson, G. Sim
mons, Daisy Brownie and Elaine Craw
ford, as principals. Six dainty Broilers
also add to its enjoyment. Daisy
Brownie is a charmins comedienne and
her singing end clever monologue work
provokes much hearty applause. The
Travesty offered by Harry Wright and
Elaine Crawford is one of the features
f the bill, r.s is the contortionistis
work of the Great Simmons.

THINK OF IT! $35 for scrubbing this great' building; 20,000
square feet of 'floor space male clean and spotless. There is no
other like this Rollaway in tbe United States. .
THINK OF IT! All employes this season work under an agree-
' ment. which specifies tbaftlny must not use tobacco in any form
during working hours. - The7 must be neat and clean in every de
tail and a whole page of ot'ier requirements. My reason and de-
' sire Is to lead in every resp?ct. To have it known that no man.
-woman or child need hesitatJ in coming to this great' place of .
amusement. The children are as safe In the Coliseum Rollaway
as In their own home. Each and every one of them is watched
and cared for. - Undesirable people are never wanted here.

other amusement is going on. I have given it to you.
