AT THE ILLINOIS. Wha'ever else may be said of Rowland & Clifford's new production of "The Rosary," which comes to the Illino's next Sunday, the, charge of imitation ci tner plays cannot be made. The play is built upon a thoroughly mod ern theme, viz: the influence of thought upon the lives and well being of the men and women of our present oay. That thought, intangible i aiiEit ui us ji is, is Bi.ii a iorce. a power, is a theory that has for some time past engaged the serious attention of fur foremost psychologists, but its portrayal upon the s'age has been neglected heretofore. "The Rosary'' attacks the theme boldly. it deals with the lives aid fortunes of a little group of people liv ing in the beautiful West Chester county, near New York Chy-.

They are the last word in up-to-date street railway equipment" There is none better. The new cars are of two different makes, the St. Louis Car company and the American Car company, both of St. Louis. While the company specifica tions called for identically the same design, the American Car company, either through oversight on the part of the builders or neglect of the com pany's own inspector, who was on the ground, blundered in the end decora tions, and in addition to the omission of the pay-as-you-enter sign, did not provide as large a reel box as the St. Loui company, and hence the il luminated designating sign is not so distinct. In the end appearance the St. Louis cars are the better, but in the interior finish the American car has it on its competitor. The railway company is disappointed in the failure of the American Car company to car ry out the specifications to the letter, as it sought in view of the large addi tion to Its equipment to have the cars absolutely uniform in outside appear ance. The public in general is so pleased with the new cars, however, that the differences will not be ob served. Superintendent Huntoon today an nounced that he had received word that 11 more new cars are on the road and accordingly he hopes to have the Fourth avenue line supplied by the end of the week and soon after that the Elm street. Then the perambulating bird cages that the company has perforce of necessity been using on the Long View end Watch Tower lines will be perma nently retired and it is hoped sent to the scrap heap.

M. & St. P. railroad yards, John Lane, formerly employed at the Llnwood quarries, was this morning bound over to the grand jury under 500 bonds on a larceny charge. Saturday afternoon Lane entered the Gould restaurant, 1923 Second ave nue, and asked the proprietor if he was in the market for some fine po tatoes. Upon receiving an affirma tive reply, he borrowed a gunny sack and returned with a bushel of them a few minutes later. He started out o get a second load, but on the re turn trip was nabbed by the police. Lane claims that a car had been brok en open and that several people were carrying away the precious tubers in pails and sacks. He said ho was in toxicated at the time and was Jiot re sponsible for his tctions. He told the police ' he did not break into a car but that the potatoes he secured were scattered about the tracks in Milwaukee yards. Railroad officials denied Lane's statement, testifying Net Very Clean.

"Have you noticed that many more men smoke pipes nowadays than five or ten years ago?" asked J. L. Scha fer, an experienced tobacco man who is at the Manufacturers hotel for a few days. "It is no exaggeration to say," continued Mr. Schaffer, "that two nii'V.on more men are smoking pipes now than were ten years ago. This tremendous increase is due to the discovery of a process of treating Burley tobacco to remove the bi'e fron it-" "For many years tobacco men have known that Kentucky Burley is the sweetest and mildest of tobacco, but it remained for a Richmond doc tor to discover the famous 'Tuxedo Process' which removes every trice of bite or sting, and preserves the criginal sweetness and freshness of the Burley." That this "Tuxedo Process" does actually remove all the bite and sting from the tobacco, is proven by the hearty endorsement which the tobac co has received from hundreds oi such well-known names as Rex Beach, Jo1 Fhillp Sousa, Congressmen Wil liam F. Murray of Massachusetts and W. Stuart Reyburn of Pennsylvania, George Randolph Chester the author. Harrison Fisher the artist, Henry Reuterdahl the we'.lknom-n expert on naval construction, Vihljarmar Stef ansson the noted explorer,-and many others. The manufac'urers of Tuxedo are giving a practical demonstration of the justification of their claims as to the mildness, purity and fragrance of Tuxedo tobacco, in thi3 ci'.y this week, by giving free for a few days a splendid watch fob to each purchas er of a 10 cent tin cf Tuxedo. The medallion is of solid bronze or silver finish, and carries the great seal c the United States in bas relief. The strap is of fine smooth black leather, with a handsome enameled bucklu, strong and serviceable. The fob is at the same time useful snd ornamen tal, and may be considered one of the most remarkable free propositions ev HANDICAP TROPHY TO DAVENPORTER Leonard Burmeister Defeats Dr. McCandles3 of This City, 2 up 1. -4 Dr. A.
