With, the Well Known Comedian,
Billy Clifford, In the Lead, at I
From Sutuiduy's Dally.
"Tho Cirl, the Man and the
(Same," a musical comedy feast
(nerved in two courses!, with Hil
ly "Single" Clifford in the loading
role, will he tho offering at the
Parmele theater Wednesday night.
Tho play is bright and hroozy, full
of ridiculous situations caused
by Hilly (as Charles Pointer), who
to get financial assistance from
his rich uncle, Cattermole, in the
Philippines, tells him that ho is
married and has a baby daughter.
The rich uncle, who is possess
mI of the globe trotting fever, de
cides to visit his nephew, and the
letter which was to inform them
of his coming being delayed, ho
arrives very unexpectedly upon
the scene; Hilly just has to have
a wife, so he borrows tho wife of
his friend, to whose sister he is
betrothed. Many are the com
plications which arise therefrom,
but the merriest one is when the
uncle asks for the infant. Clif
ford having neglected to mention
to his friends that he had told his
uncle he had a child also, and
once more his friend, Ir. Morry,
is appealed to, and whether for re
venge at having to stand idly by
and see his wife caressed by an
other or just out of a pure spirit
of fun, the doctor produces the
baby, but it is of the unbleached
American type. This causes fur
ther complications, all of which
keep Charlie in "hot water" all
tho time. The doctor, growing
weary of the deception, goes to the
Trench ball and invokes the aid
of Charlie to help him square
himself for remaining away from
home all night. As usual Charles
makes a bungle of the explana
tion, causing a rupture between
the doctor and his wife. Finally
finding that further elaborate lies
are useless the uncle is enlighten
ed as to the truth of the condition
of affairs and forgives all for
their deceptions and all's well that
Hilly has surrounded himself
with an excellent company, head
ed by petite Mae Collins, who the
past season proved herself to be
one of the cleverest 8oubrell.es of
the year by her exceptional work
in the title role of the New York
success, "The Pink Lady." She is
possessed with a beautiful voice,
is an excellent dancer and has an
abundance of personality.' Jack
Trainor will again be seen in the
role of the eccentric old uncle
and his work would be very hard
to improve upon.

dose eased them, and three bot

Bondsmen Ottered by Pugilist
Not Accepted by Court.
j Chicago, Nov. 9. Jack Johnson,
champion heavyweight pugilist of the
, world, occupies a cell In the county
jjuil, due to his failure to furnish a
j $30,000 bond for his release on a
charge of violating the Mann act.
No longer is Johnson's "golden

greatly. As he left the federal build

to obtain a bond of $10,000 for his ap

FARMERS' CONGRESS MEETS
High Living Cost Is Not Their Fault,
Says President Sanford.
New Orleans, Nov. 9. Charles F.
Sanford of New London, 0., president
ot the Farmers' National congress, In
j his address to the thirty-second conven
tion of the organization here, said
that "farmers have no conscious or In
tentional connection with the high
cost of living In towns and cities."
He declared that many of the com
plaints came from people who "are try
lng to maintain standards built upon
sundry luxuries and that the frugal
and economical are not wailing about
the high cost of living."
Mr. Smnford said this was an era
when brain more than brawn must be
developed on the farm. He advocated
a system of farm credits, similar to
fanning land bonds In France and Ger
many; the building of good roads;
liorn Intensive and less wasteful farm
ing, and the continuation of the gov
ernments experimental work In agriculture.

From Saturday's Dally,
There has been so much good
roads agitation recently and so
much discussion of the split log
drag-, proper methods of grading,
etc., (hat a great many farmers
are giving more or less attention
to the roads past Iheir farms. The
results are easily noticeable
wherever anything like systematic
work has been done.
There is one point in road
building, however, that I he farm
ers all over the country are ne
glecting. This is the sunken or
raised culvert and the dangerous
little washout where no culvert

more than a long stretch of really
rough road. Hundreds of springs
are broken every year by just
these little places, and many an
auto or team has been "stalled"
through dropping into one of
these holes and being unable to
There is probably no bad fea
ture of (he country road which
could be so quickly and easily
remedied if the farmers would
only give their attention to it. The
very worst of these ditches or
bumps could be put in condition
so that a rig or auto could pass
over without checking speed by
one man working a few minutes
with a spade or shovel.
Don't stop working the country
roads where they need it. and most
of them do. But when you are
going to town or over to one of
the neighbors and know you will
cross a bad "jumpofT" take along
the spade, stop a moment and fill
in that hole with dirt from the
roadside. You will be surprised
at the improvement you can make
with a few minutes' work, and you
will be voted a public benefactor
by both your neighbors and your
city brothers who travel the road.
