( Not much of anything but fun is in tended in tLe comedy, "Reuben in New York," which will be pressed at Poli's thte evening. The title tells ne what to expect, and Reuben's ex perience among the pretty girls and the male schemers of the metropolis are told in a way to keep an audience Jolly. Prices are 25, 35 and 50 cents. VAUDEVILLE AT THE JACQUES. That living pictures have -still pow er to charm when cleverly arranged is shown by the favor with which pat rons of .the Jacques have received the tableaux put on by the Misses Del more "in "A" Bridegroom's . Reverie." The pretty poses of the Misses Del more and the, capital music they in troduce, together with the delightfully expressive reading of Walter Caryll In his role of the bridegroom, make a novelty as exquisite as it is dainty and fascinating. The Four Otts with jtheir comedietta "Heinz in a .Pickle,' make laughter galore, their registering lying machine being a quaint conceit in line with' some of our "present day fads. Joe Morris, amuses, too, with bis funny Hebrew parodies, as do the others on the bill Pries are 10, 20 end 30 cents; afternoons 10 and 20 cents, .ladies 10. "UNCLE TOM'S CABIN." In needs only the announcement of "Unde Tom's Cabin" at Poll's to-mor row and Saturday to 'turn the tide of theater-going in that direction. This wonderful old story of slavery days has lost none of its hold on the multi tude, and Stetson's big double produc tion of it, which is the one scheduled for Poli's, is about the best now tour ing the country. Matinee and even ing - performances will be given both to-morrow and Saturday. Prices are 10, 20, 30 and 50 cents; for the matin ees 10, 20 and 30 cents. -. ' "QUINCY ADAMS SAWYER." 'Quincy Adams Sawyer" was played at Poli's last evening to an audience that could easily have been larger and more appreciative. The great num ber of empty seats in the "pif at least, seemed to chill those who sat near them, but there was enough ap trtanse heard in the galleries to keep the players warm at least. The play was decidedly good. It was as inter esting and pleasing as when it first came out two or three seasons ago. While It was of the really truly rural kind it had a great many elements that rendered it a play apart altogether from the country cross roads. It had no "land sakes alive" exclamations, nor blood curdling "by goshes," and its most distinctive feature was that it had no bad man or wronged woman, no eternal villian turning up in the most unexpected places, while evident ly to mate up for this great loss ft had two heroes. Those who have read the book of course know all this, but many do not care for such books, yet like the shows based on them. And another startling departure from the regular shows was that at final cur tain cot a character was on the stage. The company on the whole was good. If the prices charged had been higher, there Is no question th.it the audience r.-ould have been larger , COMING EVENTS . Dec 4 Pequot club, masquerade ball. Dec 4 Recital by pupils of B. E.

It will be good news to the mothers of small "children to learn that croup can be prevented. The first sign of croup is hoarseness. A day or two before the attack the child becomes hoarse. This Is soon followed by a peculiar rough cough. Give Chamber lain's Cough Remedy freely as soon as the child becomes hoarse, or even after the rough cough appears, and it will dispel all symptoms of croup. In this way all danger and anxiety may be avoided. This remedy is used by many, thousands of mothers and has never been known to fail. It is, in fact, the only remedy that can always be depended upon and that is pleas ant and safe to take. For sale by all druggists. : XiOoIc Out for ThU One The latest swindle is the offer by traveling salesmen of a so-called "res urrection plant," guaranteed to .keep flies, roaches and other insects out of the house. They sell at 50 cents and less, if the agent is not able to get the price. It is a dear plant at any price, lot it has no more virtue than a four-leaf clover. V Deyonra Mrs. Kewly-Wedlg Bread Dongh and Become a Bloated Monistrioslty, A few months ago a young man who is employed in one of the rail-" road offices of this city bought a very. mall pointer pup. The dog grew steadily, but mainly in the head and legs, having no body to : speak of, relates the Portland Oregonian. ' The lady of the household, like ;, many newly married women, was making a thorough test of her . husband's di gestive powers by baking bread for. the family. The pointer pup was now taking on the appearance of a genu ine dog, and put in most of his time looking for something to eat. He found just what he was looking for. Mrs. Newly-Wed had . placed a pan containing three loaves in the state of dough under the " kitchen stove and had srone upstairs for a few min- Aites. Like many new bread-makers, she was generous in the use of yeast, and her bread was usually lighter than a sponge. When she returned the dough had been transferred from the pan to the interior of the point er, -who was already showing signs of distress. The 3'east was getting in its deadly work, and gradually the 'dog's, body began to swell.; The head, which had formerly been the most prominent feature of his make up, was quite eclipsed beside the bursting bod'. The legs looked like toothpicks supporting a beer keg. The poor pointer was now writhing in agony, and after several neighbors had proposed various strenuous measures, an application of saleratus water brought relief. TRUSTS IN FORMER DAYS. In Ambient Times Monopolists Cor nered Food Stuffs and Otneir Products. GAVE A LARGE REWARD. The cornering of foodstuffs by mon- archs and their agents is said to have been the earliest form of trust that ever existed and as they had the power to prevent any bear movement in op position their deals could not help be ing successful ones. Accounts of such transactions, are to be found in Assyr ian records dating back 7,000 or 8,000 years; and 'the Bible describes a very large operation of this kind carried out by Joseph, when, out of the wealth of the seven fat years, he provided for the poverty of the seven lean ones. The Romans did the same thing through their tax farmers', who laid embargoes on the food supplies of the provinces against arrears of taxes, and the prob ability is that similar operations were ah?o conducted with regard to manu facturers. Another form of monopolies, known as trade guilds,': has existed from very early times, and these, in the middle ages, amounted practically to the cor nering of certain arts and industries as well as means of distribution. . The greatest of them was the famous league of the Hanse towns. So close a "combine" was this that it possessed its own fleets of armed merchantmen and even armies of mercenaries in or der to guard its monopoly- a length to which not even American capitalists have yet ventured to proceed. . GEOGRAPHY AND FINANCE. Rousing Repartee Between an Amer ican and a Briilslier Over Some Window Pictures. ' An , American and an Englishman met the other day before a show win dow in Broadway, in which was dis played' a r large ." lithograph in colors of Cincinnati, showing how that city looked 40 years ago, says the New York Times. ' "What i the town noted 1 for?" asked the Englishman. - "O, a lot of things," was the re ply. Porkj whisky, hills, hot weather in summer, big music halls, and then it's the home of Senator Foraker." "I , dare say either would make it famous. But you'll excuse me when I say I never heard of the town before." "Well, it's the town where old man Zimmerman lived, and hisi daughter married the Duke of Manchester." v "Ah, yes. You Americans, with the assistance of our scions, have your geography on the ends of your tongues." "And. you Englshmen, with the as sistance of our girls, have your bank accounts) at the ends of your fingers." CHINESE DUPLICITY, azonsrollans a.s a Rule Have Hut Little Regard for lie Kecking oX Their Word. A South Sea islander said of his race, "As: soon as we open our-mouths a lie is born." ; The Chinese acknowl edge without shame the same of them selvest. It may be true among west ern nations that "the affairs of life' hinge upon confidence," but in ' the east, especially, in China, they hinge upon suspicion. There are few' Chi nese who attach any importance to keeping an engagement. Most of them are like the man who, being accused of breaking his premise, replied that it was of no consequence, as he could make another just as goodt The Chi nese say that one should never re fuse' a request in an abrupt manner; on the contrary, he ehould grant it in form, although with no intention to do so in substance. "Put him off till to-morrow and then until another to-morrow. Thus you comfort his heart," they say. Hebrew Exclnilveneai. ' , Is Jewish exclusiveness becoming a legend rather than a reality? It . would . seem so, at least in Australia The recently published matrimonial statistics of New South Wales show that in 1901 67 Jewesses selected hus-1 bands from the Church of England, 1? mated with Catholics and 11 found their affinities in the Presbyterian fold. One hundred and fifty-one Jews united to Anglican wives, 62 to Catho lics, 13 to Presbyterians, 12 to Metho dists, four to agnostics, and two tc Congregationalists, , while a solitary son of Israel is returned as having wedded a Baptist. Altogether, out oi 781 Jewish marriages, 341 were mora or less "mixed." London Chroniela So Thought the Bestower and the Young Hero Who Received the Money. "The following story will illustrate a number, of things," said the Detroit ship owner who. narrated it, "but chiefly will it show how the value of money varies- with the supply. "A boy was telling me of his prow ess as a swimmer. He could dive, too. t " 'Once,' 6aid he, I dived down to the bottom of the river and pulled a little boy out. " 'Bravo!' raid I. "'An' I tell you,' he continued, his pa was- glad! He give me a tlollar-an-a-quarter.' ' "Both the father and the hero live in a neighborhpod the occupants of which are sometimes known as 'wharf rats' the neighborhood or the docks. I have no doubt," concluded the ship owner, according to the Detroit Free, Press, "that the dollar-and-ia-quarter was as large to the man a to the. boy." , ' . - ; Advice to Kins Alfonso, King Alfonso wants to rebuild the Spanish navy.
