"The Girl, the Man and the Game"
Draws a Large Audience and
Pleases the People.
The Parniolo theater was
crowded last evening with a de
lighted audience to witness the
presentation of "The Girl, the
.Man and the Game," with Billy
(Single) Clifford in the leading
role, and the show certainly was
made for laughing purposes only,
as the audience was kept in a
continuous laugh by the comic
situations depecled by the nctors.
There were some very pleasing
musical numbers given and the
members of the company have
some excellent voices in (lie cast.
Especially noticeable was the
singing of Miss Marie Welter, who
sang the selection, "Rose of Kil
larney," which was one of the hits
of ttie show. Ed C. Clifford, as
George Livingston, gave a num
ber of baritone solos and made
the hit of the evening in his song,
"Bring Back My Bonnie to Me."
The company was very good in
their presentation and made an
evening of enjoyment to all who
attended the show. Mr. Billy Clif
ford is one of the best farce
comedians that has apepared here
this season. Jack Trainer, as the
grouchy uncle, was delightful in
bis rendition of the part and it
would havo been a great pleasuro
to the uudience if lie could have
held the stage during the entire
show, as his acting was finished
and very laughable".
Manager Shlaes is to be coif.

The next attraction at I he Par
mole is ''The Girl and the Gawk,"
next Saturday night. II is said to
be a beautiful southern play that
does not, depend on murder, stolen
papers, wills, mortgages or any
such hackneyed and threadbare
ideas for a plot. There is no
shooting, killing or crime de
picted, but still there is such an
.intensity in the story that it holds
the audience in a spell of excite
ment until the happy llnale. It
is a play that has been witnessed
and approved by clergymen of
every denomination. It is a whole
some, clean and pure play. You
never saw one like it, so don't bo
misled by n wrong impression, or
you will miss a really meritorious
performance. It has plenty of
ginger and fun to make it in
teresting, nnd also plenty of ro
mance. Don't fail to see it at
popular prices. .Remember Sat
urday night.
W. L. Miller and August Eick
jost, who bad been found in a very
bad state of intoxication in the
village of Cedar Creek Tuesday,
were brought in this morning by
the sheriff and brought before the
court, who, after hearing tho evi
dence in the coso sentenced them
to thirty days in the county jail
and to pay tho costs in the rase
amounting to $9.35, and the men
will probably have to lay out the
costs in the jail. This is a some
what expensive spree for the boys
and they will probably hesitate the
next lime before indulging so
heavily in the drink that cheers.
To Visit In Oklahoma.
G. W. Ilomnn departed today
for Oklahoma City, where ho will
visit for about a month and will
then return home for a short time
and then go to Corning, Iowa,
where he expects to spend the
winter with his brother, who re
sides near that place, nnd who is
in poor health. Mr. Unman ex
pects to return to Plaltsmouth in
the spring, as be thinks there is
no place ns good as the old town,
but his brother's health makes it
necessary for him to nssist, him
during the winter.

Stork Visits Hayes' Home.
The home of Mr. and Mrs. R.
B. Hayes was made much happier
last evening by the arrival of a
handsome new daughter, who will
make her home with them in the
future. The mother and little one
are getting along nicely and the
general foreman of the shops was
able to be around at his duties to
day, though still in a very excited
condition. This is the first child
in this family and consequently
there is nothing in the world too
good for the Utile lady.
'The House of a Thousand Can
dles," a Play That Takes
With the People.
The management of the Par
mele theater announces as tho at
traction coming soon the original
New York production of "The
House of a Thousand Candles," a
play founded upon tho novel of
Meredith Nicholson, by George
Middleton, and produced at Daly
and Hackclt theaters in New York
city for nearly an entiro season.
The dramatist has succeeded in
translating to tho stage tho story,
without loss of dramatic interest
or value. It has been extremely
successful from tho first perform
ances. Tho action moves at a
rapid pace, and the scenes succeed.
one another in logical and pro
gressive order; it is a strong,
virile drama, with a plausible,
consistent, convincing plot, that
can bo as easily understood and
enjoyed by ono who is a stranger
to the book ns by one who ha3 read
the fascinating tale of the house
of mystery.
The most is made of every
dramatic situation in Mr. Nichol
son's novel and a play has been
modeled upon it ns clear and in
teresting ns the novelist's story.
To tho plot as revealed in the
novel, more substance has been
added, and this, in turn, has lent
weight, to the drama, built a
stronger story for stage purposes
around each character and assist
ed in developing to their fullest
extent nil the dramatic qualities
cf the book. Bates, the silent, in
scrulible butler, steps into the
position of hero, and though it is
by no means easy to make a hero
of a valet, the dramatist has suc
ceeded admirably. Moreover, the
elevation of Hates is accomplish
ed without detracting appreciably
from the prominence of young
Glcnarm, I lie hero of the novel,
and in one scene still the hero of
the play. But behind the foot
lights Bales gets the prominence
which is really his due and which
the story of Mr. Nicholson allowed
him by suggestion, rather than by
emphasis. This adjustment of the
( liaracterH' values is less a liberty
than a development of tho novel's
possibilities, and not only does it
modify the story to any material
extent, but assists as a mailer of
fact in making the stage version
clearer Ihnn it might otherwise
have been, and the scenes nnd
situations more effective and more
The expense accounts of the
central committees and candid
ates of the different parties in tho
recent campaign indicate that the
voters of the county were not cor
rupted by the use of money. The
democratic commitloo received
$55 from the candidates and ex
pended tho sum of $15, while tho
republicans did not receive any
money and the secretary of the
committee expended the sum of
.8.75. William Weber, republican
candidate for commissioner, spent
$31 in the raco for that office; W.
B. Banning, democratic nominee
for stale senator, expended $90.75
in the campaign in this and OLoo
counties; 3 J. Gustin, tho newly
elected representative, spent $37
to win his seat in the legislature;
W. R. Bryan, tho successful can
didate for assessor, spent $20,
while his opponent, L. A. Tyson,
expended $51.15 in tho race. The
laws against tho spending of large
sums of money in campaigns is
evidently not in danger of being
violated by any of the candidates
in this count'.

Charles Tracey of Richfield,
Idaho, who has ben visiting at the
home of Frank Moore, near Mur
ray, was in the city yesterday aft
ernoon en route to Omaha. Mr.
Tracey formerly resided in this
county, about thirty years ago,
living in the vicinly of. Rock
Itlull's, and has a warm spot in his
henrt for his old home. There
were many of the old friends left
in this vicinity whom Mr. Tracey
recognized, but the buys and girls
of those days have grown up and
the older people have, to n large
extent, passed away. Mrs. Tracey
accompanied her husband bnck to
the old home and is visit ing.wilh
friends at Murray.
There has been reports of
several occasions of late where
parties have visited some of the
residences in the north part of
the city and thrown rocks nnd
other missels. At the residence of
A. W. Dawson two windows were
broken, while at the other places
visited they contented themselves
wild pelting the houses with dif
ferent missels. These acts may
have been done in a spirit of fun,
but if anything serious should re
sult, the perpetrators of tho deed '
may get into very serious trouble.
