Many more little dramas arc enact ed at the zoo than the outside public wots of, says the London Standard. Behind the Hon house there is a black leopardess which Is Implacably sav age and tries to eat her keeper. Her neighbor is a great romping leopard which a lady reared in - India. He comes out to play when the British public Is represented by only a liv eried zoo man. Sometimes the ani mals get out without the consent of their keepers. One which did so was Obash, the hippopotamus. He proved a savage indeed when the attempt was made to deprive him of his liberty. Happily the gardens 'were closed at the time. Try as they would, the keeiers could not entice or coerce the monster in the direction of hi3 den. At last the superintendent called up an assistant whom the hippopota mus hated. The chief put a bank note into the man's hand. "Scott," he said, "throw open the paddock gate, show yourself to Obash, theu run for It." Scott did. The animal went for him, raging along1 the path and after him Into the paddock. Scott climbed the ; 1 ' . " . .'. . .' . ... j P.EVY OF DIVORCEES IX ACT II.

Dying Fails Sam Webb, proprietor of the Illinois saloon on Second avenue between Six teenth and Seventeenth street, has left the city with some-heavy bills unpaid and little chance of having to settle for them. Webb managed the place . "A HONEYMOON TRAIL," AT THE ILLINOIS THURSDAY EVENING. for the Anheuser-Busch Brewing com pany. A week ago he gave the keys of the bi:iH;ng to the bartender with the information that he would be gone a few days as he had a daugnter in Missouri who was close to death and who wished to see him. The bartender accordingly ran the saloon until yes terday when he learned from Webb's wife that Webb did not intend to come back. Accordingly the place - was closed at once and several attach ments' were made on the fixtures and stock in the place to insure payment of bills incurred by Webb. Attempts are now being made to get the brewing company to settle up Webb's accounts. Whero They Know How to Economizo. At the request of a woman in search of a servant the manager of an em ployment agency asked each of the girls lined up against the wall if she had ever been employed In a minister's family. None of them had leen. "May I ask why you are particular ly anxious to know If these girls have had an engagement of that kind?" asked the manager.' "Because we are very hard up just now, ' the woman replied, "and I must hnve a girl who is economical. I have found that of all servauts those who have worked la ministers' familiea know best how to economize." New York Sun. Will Green Shoes Bo Worn?

Harper's Weekly, in speaking of Eugene Walter's play "Paid in Full," says: "The third act of the American play, 'PaId . in ' Full,' which is presented at the- Actor ,thea ter, is one for which the. author, Mr. Eugene Walter, deserves much com mendation. The play, from beginning to end, is extremely well done both by playwright and company,' and 'with interest might well be added to the title as an expression of . what 1 the audience derives from iL The play - ti deals with humble persons; humble, J that Is, in comparison with th 'high society folk one Is pecustomed to see -strutting through the measures of so cial drama. The reason lor calling at- Jtenlion to Mr. Walter's third act is, mat ne nas maae u just wnai it snouiu be, quick, alert, full of interest, and a striking climax, of the play. After see ing it there was a reasonable suspic ion that a fourth, act might spoil the drama, at least might destroy the force of the third! However, Mr. Wal ter's fourth act ..does not mar his play In any way; If. anything, it adds in ac centuating the strength of the one which preceded.it." "Paid in Full" will be the attraction at the Illinois Sunday, Dec. 13, matinee and evening. The Wagenhals and Kemper company promise a fine production and a not able cast of players. The play Is in its second year in New York and has also to its credit a run of over six months in Chicago. 'A Honeymoon Trail." For those of our theatergoers who like musical comedies the announcement that the greatest of all Chicago successes "Honeymoon Trail," is to appear here Thursday evening, Dec. 10, at the Illinois will be welcome news. The P'ay is by Messrs. Adams, Hough and nowara, me autnors or -ine lime, me Place and the Girl," and "The Girl Question," and ran for 200 nights at the La Salle theater, Chicago, last season. It has a very clever and consistent story, augmented with good comedy, catchy music, delightful songs and a beauty chorus of forty clever dancers and singers. "Girls" a Delightful Comedy. Clyde Fitch's comedy, "Girls," should have a much larger audience than wit nessed it at the Illinois last night Those who were present, however, were well repaid. It is an exceedingly bright and breezy play, being staged and cast by the Messrs. Shubert and is in every essential respect one of the Dest attractions or tne season. It is unfortunate that the appreciative play going public of Rock Island neglect to signify their appreciation of attractions of the first order as they come along. The Family The American Zouaves, probably the largest act being pre sented In vaudeville In this country. Is featuring the bill at the Family theater the first half of this week. The act is made up of 14 well drilled men, and as a whole it is one of the mili tary marvels of the world. All of the men with the exception of the captain in charge dress in the garb of the Turk ish soldier, and every member is an expert gun spinner. After going through a number of pretty drills the men at the command of the captain in charge scale a wall 14 feet in height at the rear of the stage. Every member of the squad Is on the wall in less than two minutes after the call is issued. As a fitting 'climax to the act, the American flag is waved over the wall, and a salute fired, closing the act. In addition to this there are ttiree other good acts on the bill., The Alberta sisters are presenting a unique singing and dancing act, that is meet ing with approval. The act that inter ests the children is De Forest and his performing dogs. He has a number of canines in the act and all of them are well trained. As a feature to the act he has four beautiful greyhounds who are made to perform a number of high jumping feats. Sopora and Bonny, a colored team, are presenting a clever comedy singing and dancing act. Both members of the team are old heads at the business, and every move is a laugn. .Mrs. Aiae Casey is singing "Sweet Sixteen'.' by Kerry Mills, for the illustrated song this half. At the Elite. The Elite theater is Ptitting on a real.musical comedy this week and from the reception given to the first performance yesterday and last night it will be very popular. The act is called -"Henderson's $10,000 Beauty" and it contains a num ber of pretty girls who are clever Harry Wright, the, well known Irish comedian, is in the leading role and the two comedians who take tbe part of the Jew and the Dutchman, are in tne same class as a fun maker as Wright. There are 10 characters in the play including a pretty chorus of girls who have a large variety of pretty costumes. Eight sons hits are snrung by different members of the Iroupe and the singing is excellent. There are two other numbers on the bill be sides the feature act. Miss Daisy Brownie, a singing and talking come dienne, and the Great Simmons, the equilibrist, are the extra attractions. and both of them are good. The en tire' show is one of the best that has been at the theater for a long time. At the Majestic. For the week be fore Christmas the Majestic theater, Chicago, offers a bill that will prove a boon to those worn out by the ardu ous duties of the holiday shopping season and who relish a diverting vaudeville program ag something that will enliven their tired spirits. -The headiiner wilf be no less a person than the famous dramatic actress, Virginia Harned, than whom there Is no better known or popular legitimate star on the stage today, who comes to vaudeville in a one-act play written by herself entitled "The Idol or tne Hour, It is a comedy drama and concerns the conflicting ambitions of the woman of the stage discussing in the abstract as to whether the actress should become a wife. This is the first season that this noted actress has appeared in vaudeville, and .she is regarded as one of the greatest captures yet made from the legitimate -field of dramatic art. She has always appeared at the head of 'her own company, her. play I bast "season being "Glorious Betsy." I There have 'been ruany clever acro- bat 1c troupes at the Majestic, but the - lTrapnell family, who have just corn- pleted a very successful engagement jg at the London Hippodrome and come to America for the first time, are some thing out of the ordinary, and their wonderful tumbling feats are sure to be appreciated. The troupe consists of three ladies, a man and a boy, and the feats of the latter are by no means a small feature of the show. All their evolutions show great agility and grace, and judging from the great re ception they obtained upon their re cent debut in Ameiica, the troupe are likely to meet with much success in this country. Adelaide, the dainty American danseuse popularly known as La Petite Adelaide, is one of the most accomplished toe dancers in the country, and in reentering vaudeville after being featured for three seasons in prominent musical comedies, she has prepared a little terpsichorean of fering called "The Bill Poster's Dream." In it she is assisted by four clever young ladies who lend action and pretension to the number. The Melnotte Twins and Clay Smith pre sent a smart singing number with com edy sayings and eccentric dancing; and aside from these featured acts there are a half dozen other skilled special ties, making up an unusually enter taining bill. tearked for Death.
