It can be truly said of "The Thief,"
which will be seen at the Keith next Sat
urday eyening with Janot Allyn in the
leading role that it is one of the greatest
playB over written. It was written origi
nally for Madame Simone and produced
first in Paris whero it created a pro
found sensation. Haddon Chambers then
translated it into English and it was
played in New York by Margaret Illing
ton nnd was considered by many the
greatest play ever seen in the country.
So perfect was its construction and so
logical were its situations that it is said
that not ono ' line of it is changed from
tho original manuscript.

Last summer Julius Pizer, proprietor of The Leader, announced that certain changes in the management of the establishment
would be made. Some people looked upon this announcement as an advertising scheme, but the fact is, Mr. Pizer was honest in
his declaration. Unfortunately, at that time, the manager he had engaged to take charge of the .business was forced to remove to
California on account of his wife's health, and the change could not be made at the time announced.
Since then Mr. Pizer has secured a manager in the person of Mr. J. J. Friedman, of Chicago, a man of wide mercantile expe
rience, and pleasing and courteous in manner, who is now here with his family and is acquainting himself with the business prior
to assuming full charge as manager.
The business will be incorporated under the name of The Leader" Mercantile Company, this incorporation to take effect be
tween January first and February first, 1914. The officers of the corporation will be Julius Pizer president and treasurer, Mrs.
Julius Pizer vice-president, and J. J. Friedman secretary and manager.
Mr. Pizer will individually retire from the business, and will devote his time to outside affairs which demand his attention
Next spring he will make a trip to Europe to visit his parents whom he has not seen for over thirty years.
Prior to the incorporation and reorganization of this well known establishment, it will be necessary to reduce the present
stock to the lowest minimum possible, and to secure this desired result a Reorganization Sale will be held which will bpgin Satur
day, November 15th. The entire stock will be sold at sacrifice prices. Watch for advertisement in the next issue of The Tribune.

Declare War On Colds.
A crusade of education which aims
"that common colds may becomo un
common within the next generation"
has been begun by prominent New York
physicinns. Hero is a list of the "'don'ts"
which the doctors say will prevent the
annual visitation of tho cold:
"Don't sit in a drnughty car."
"Don't sleep in hot rooms."
"Don't avoid the fresh air."
"Don't stuff yourself at meal time.
Overeating reduces your resistance."
To which we would add - when you
take a cold get rid of it as quickly as
possible. To accomplish thut you will
find Chamherlain's cough remedy most
excellent. Sold by all dealers.
