CARRIE NATION. . ; "Have you 6een Carrie Nation yet? ijbnot, get into the band wagon and see., this most noted American woman who Is telling large audiences at the Jacques how and why she smashed saloon . after saloon in Kansas. Mrs Nation? has been holding forth all the week "with her saloon-wrecking ha rangues, to the delight aud amusement- of . large audiences who have found; much to enjoy in her cranky talk ' and disjointed denunciations. Some1 .of her auditors have at times tried to bTeak her down with inter ruptions and questions, but in every case she has been a match for her tor mentors and turned the laugh oh them.,. It . is , a treat to hear the "wo man talk, no matter what one may think of herself and her methods, and there ought to be no one left who will not -have seen her before the close of her engagement to-morrow evening. It is not at all likely that she will ever again visit Waterbury, as she in tends returning to Kansas and tak ing up again her strenuous life against the saloons. Mrs Nation will be succeeded at the Jacques next week by another famous woman in the per on . of -Mile. Adgle. the daring lion tamer, whose wonderful exploits w.i three' feroclons Hons are still remem bered from last season. In brlnsring (her back for a second engagement Manager Poll is yielding to manv re quests from those who were fascinat es with her during last season. Prices are 10, 20 and 30 cents ; afternoons, 10 and 20 cents, ladies 10. MOVING PICTURES. J. P. Dibbie, who will be i-emembcr-ed for tbe fine exhibitions of moving pictures he has given us in the past seasons, will make his first appearance of th present sason Sunday evening at Poli's. In addition to tbe latest and best American films Mr Dibble will show the newest European colored Pictures, and the noted tenor, Arthur Fox will be heard in illustrated songs. The whole will make a most pjeaslng Sunday evening entertain ment. " Admission will be 25 cents to all parts of the house. . MARY MANNERING. Another of the season's distinguish ed occasion's will be presented at Poli's on Tuesday evening, when beautiful Mary Mannering will appear in Leo Ditrichstein's new comedy, "Har- Css-es a Cdi SaOns Say, Crila 2 Says . wr- -.gg -JaGques riet's Honeymoon." In this nlav. it .s claimed, she has greater opportuni ties tnan existed In either "Janice "-er-edith" or "The Stubbornness of Ger aldine,"Joth in the lighter passages of the play and in the scenes of greater intensity. Mary Mannering is one of the most delightful comediennes on tne American stage. That fact has long been accepted, and now in the emo tional scenes Mr Ditrichstein has of fered her in "Harriet's Honeymoon ' she develops surprising power as an emotional actress. "Harriet s Honey moon" is principally; laughter,' with enough of the serious to give it body and flavor. The complications are brought about by a case of mistaken Identity in which the monumental' stu pidity of a German police official plays a very large part. There are three acts in the comedy, the locale being a tiny health resort somewhere within the confines of the German em pire. The company which Manager Frank McKee has got together for Miss Mannering's support includes Ar thur Byron, Thomas A. Wise, Henry Kolker, Louis Massen, Edward See, Adolph Jackson, Louise Hollister, Kate Lester, Lillie Hall, Emma Jan vier and many other well known players. ROGERS BROTHERS. Packed to the doors and with every box in Poli's theater filled was the greeting given to the Rogers Brothers in their latest success of "The Rogers Brothers in London" last night. And the greeting was deserved for the two hours or more of fun dished up by those clever comedians and thedr large and excellent company. It was a treat never better enjoyed nor ap preciated more earnestly. The songs were new and so catchy that the two upper galleries took them up and car ried them through with the orchestra. Beautifully staged, and with a large and clever chorus of beautiful women, elegantly and appropriately costumed, the comedy was delightfully present-, ed. Naturally 'the Rogers brothers were the center of attraction and their witty sayings, humorous songs and Jokes and funny make-ups were int na hnnnilv received and as thor oughly enjoyed. And yet tbey were not the only stars in the entertain ment and it is just as well that such was the case. Audiences sometimes tire of a one man or one woman show, even though their work is beyond ad verse criticism. t There was with the company last night another comedian who shared with the two principals the honors of the evening. That star was Joseph Coyne in the character of Harold Har v'ey. It was not a character over which a person would enthuse unless it was played well, but in the capable hands f Mr Coyne it shone with bril liancy. Clever indeed was his work and deservedly he received and shared with tbe leaders the most of the ap plause of the evening. Everything worked smoothly throughout the whole pei'formance and the comedy deserves all the enconlums that can lae given It. MEETINGS TO-NIGHT. St Ann's drum corps. Builders' association hall.

Edward Wallace' Flan Lift In ternatlonal Yacht tne Tropay. Edward Wallace, millionaire mine owner of Bromenhill, Australia, recent ly discussed with the New York World's correspondent at Vancouver, B. C., his plans for building a chal lenger to lift the America's cup. 'fit has been the dream of: my life," he said, "to gain the great yachting cup for Canada, which, is my native land. A few days ago, when I was In Hali fax, I obtained some designs. I do not think the boat could be built which would have any chance of success for less than $500,000. My plan is to build a boat at least 120 fet'Iong,' 90 feet water line, 25 feet beam and 16 feet draft. I think a racing 'craft can be built at the same time as a pleasure boat. J'The yacht will not only be a fast boat, but she will be specially fitted for long ocean cruises. In the bow I would carry an immense oil tank as a safe guard against rough weather. The cen ter would be taken up principally with a main saloon sixteen feet long' and the full width of the yacht "There is no reason why a boat like this built on the western side of the Atlantic, probably at Halifax, should not be able to do what Sir Thomas Lip ton has failed In accomplishing. I have not considered the question under what club auspices I will sail the boat. Aus tralian sportsmen are willing to back the project to the limit". Bear Movement.
