Our government In Its conserva
tion of Its natural resources has hit
on another proposition that seems
to he food for the brain of our spir
ited citizens who are always ready
to serve the dear people, anu me
dt-ar people who never tnina lor
themselves accept it as quite the
thing. To conserve the natural re
sources is a step iu the right direc
tion. If we are to conserve for fu-
Iture generations we have a broad
' field before us, as there Is much be
sides natural resources to be ecu-served.
Some of the essential tnings i
might mention are common honesty,
faithfulness in public ana private

Last night's performance of "For
Fair Virginia" at the Parmele was
unfortunately Interrupted and even
tually broken up by the failure of
the boilers at the electric light sta
tion to work, and the consequent
closing down of the plant. The play
had proceeded as far as the middle
of the second act when It was ftnally
announced there could be no light
furnished and the audience was dis
missed. At the request of the man

engagement were exchanged for to
The unfortunate occurrence la
doubly disastrous on Mr. Davis and
his company as their entire engage
ment In this city so far has been
marked by a series of disasters.
They are a company of more than

as they w ere able '-.to proceed they
had done some excellent work.
The entire company is evenly bal

and conscientious and able actors.
The trouble last night served to em
phasize tho versatility of the com

the pianlste, was called upon to en

tween the first and second acts and
for a period of more than an hour
she furnished an entertainment in

mission. Miss Crawford Is a pianlste
of more than usual ability and ad
ded to this she had the accomplish
ment of being a sweet singer and she
pleased the large audience with a
number of excellent selections, whils
the light company was trying to get
things In shape to proceed with the
play. Her work deserves the high

caused him some grief He
walked across the Missouri Paclfh
