approaching the period

Some ef the most lovable and best people
In the world are cranky, and a "Icetle"
hard to manage, particularly when you
want to do them good. Then It Is that
justifiable and righteous artfulness may be
resorted to. Aa, for Instance, In the follow
ing case given by a devoted wife and
mother, in Iowa:
"This spring my daughter, who Is a
teacher, became convinced that coffee was
doing her harm, as it caused distress and
belching after eating. She felt that she
needed a warm drink In the morning but
disliked hot water or milk. Then our dully
use of Grape-Nuts suggested Postum.
"For some time my husband, who has
been a user of coffee from his youth, had
been more than usually troubled with
sleeplessness snd nervousness and I felt
that Postum might be helpful to- him. The
question was, how to persuade them to
lesve Oft drinking coffee and try Postum,
against 'which they had repeatedly ex
pressed prejudice. I resolved to try an ex
periment and make the test.
"Without acquainting them with the fact
I made Postum according to directions, but
added a teaspoonful of good coffee. I
poured It out with some misgivings, but
was delighted to see that no one could tell
from Its appearance that it was not rich,
strong ooffee. Its use was continued for a
week with the coffee addition, then that
was gradually withdrawn, until only the
pure Postum remained, and atlll the change
had not been detected.
"Two things were very noticeable, how
ever, j that my daughter had begun to
rapldlya Improve In health, her lspepsia
left, nd my husband was enjoying sweet,
"When I ventured to tell them what I
had done, he asked for a return to the
coffee, and I gladly made It for him; but
one day satisfied him, the old sleeplessness
cam back and he told me lie liked the
postum better. So we have used It ever
since1 to the benofit of the whole family."

Mr. Walker Whiteside returns for his
annual visit with two plays In which he
has been achieving much success during
the last two seasons. The first of these
he offered at the Boyd theater last even
ing, "We Are King." This romantie
comedy-drama has been Improved since last
seen here by the omission of the prologue.
the explanatory remarks br.:;5 Incor
porated Into the first act, and rnu-h time
for the necessary action of the plar being
thereby gained without any serious loss
to Its sequence as a story. The play, which
Is well known, has much merit from a
dramatic standpoint. and serves Mr.
Whiteside splendidly as a means for his
power as a romantic actor. Known so
long as a devotee of the classic drama.
It was something of a shock to friends
ho had learned to admire him In the
heavier roles, and to think of him as Ham
let, for example, to undertake to adjust
themselves to seeing him as the hero of
a romantic play. But he has shown him
self capable of doing the lighter work.
and doing It as thoroughly as he ever did
his more ambitious undertakings. As
Gustavus Venner, the penniless adven
turer, and as Hector, king of Kahnberg,
he Is charming. His voice, manner, every
thing unite to make the part Ideal, and
he carries off his every scene with an easy
nonchalance that la rather a part of the
character than the cock-sure attitude of
the actor who knows Just how the play
is going to end. Moreover, he has injected
a large part of his Deraonalitv Into the
role, a quaint, pungent humor his per
sonal friends have known, but of which
the public has had little chance to Judge
because of the unremitting seriousness of
his efforts as an actor,
Miss Douglass, who Is Mr. Whiteside's
leading woman this season, brings to the
part charms of person and manner suf
llclent to make It a most Interesting cre
ation. The rest of the company Is good
and the performance Is excellent In every
regard. 'TV e Are King" will be given
again this evening and on Wednesday
evening. On Tuesday evening and at the
Wednesday matinee Mr. Whiteside will
play "David Garrlck's Love," preceding
this with a one-act play, "Jewels of Fire,
Vaudeville at the Orpheum.
One of the most startling of sensational
perrormances heads the list of acts offered
at the Orpheum theater for the coming
week. The performance of the Stones ex
eels all qf the many vaunted exhibitions
of looping loops, looping gaps, riding spt
rals and the like as far as an arc light
exceeds a tallow dip. A sober recital of
facts is strong enough to convince anyone
of the positively dangerous character of
the act, and Its hair-raising nature. A
huge globe of steel bars Is erected on the
stage. This Is sixteen feet In diameter.
Inside a man and woman ride an or
dinary bicycle, up and down the sides,
around and around, one over and then
under crossing and recrosslng each
other's path, and then In opposite direc
tions. Finally, they ride In pursuit, up and
down the sides of the globe in the dlxxlest
of races. The climax of the affair Is the
Introduction of a motorcycle on which the
man makes the most sensational flight yet
offered. Turning the power on until the
wheel has attained a terrific speed he
steers it straight up the side of the globe,
and over, and over he goes, until he has
completed the circuit twelve times. Then
he slackens the rush of his machine, checks
it down' td a standstill, and bows to the
spectators who have watched him, breath
less and almost pulseless. It is by far the
most thrilling undertaking ever yet devised
to tempt death, and more than deserves
the name given it by the bill, "hasardous."
Aside from this the bill contains features
of much Interest. The Howard brothers
play the banjo as only they can, and add to
the cleverness of their musical accomplish
ments the faculty of Juggling with the in
struments, playing with them as club Jug
glers do and performing well known airs
at the same time, keeping both air and
time correctly. Mexias and Mexlas are a
clown and a dog, who do a very Interesting
lot of stunts and some comic pantomime.
Linden Beckwlth Is a beautiful woman
with a beautiful voice, but she sacrifices
some of the latter In the arrangement she
has adopted for exploiting the former. Her
Idea Is unique and quite fetching In Its
way. One soon forgets the faces of ths
three Macartes In watching their graceful
movements aa they dance, walk ths tight
wire and dangle from trapeses. They are
good all-around Workers in their line.
Emma Francis and her two Arabs fur
nish several surprises and finish a whirl
wind act amid a storm of applause. Mr.
and Mrs. Edward Esmonds and Mr. J. 8.
Staff enact a pleasing little comedy, cast
on conventional lines, and the pictures are
amusing. Two large audiences were pres
ent yesterday to witness the bill.
"I'nder Two Flags" at the Bnrwood.
The best performance of "I'nder Two
Flags" ever given by the Woodward Stock
company was that offered at the Burwood
last nigni. it neia tne attention of arr
audlence as large as the theater would ac
commodate, and deserved in every way the
compliment thus bestowed on It. In pro
ducing the piece Director Long has happily
oast his company, and the parts are all
well played. Miss Lang Is the Cigarette
and Mr. Morrison the Bertie Cecil. On
them devolves the chief Interest of the ac
tion of the play, and they hold the honors
well. Mr. Owen gives his customary
splendid performance aa Chateauroy, and
Mr. McKee and Mr. Simpson are very good
as Rockingham and Rake. Miss Hill has
the role of Lady Venetla and enacts ths
part In tier best manner. The piece is
staged perfectly, snd the Intensely thrilling
situations, particularly the' sandstorm In
ths desert snd the ride of Cigarette up the
sides of Chelula gorge, are all set out with
great strength. The bill will be on aH week
with the customary matinees.
"Human Hearts" at the Krngr.
This well known "heart Interest" drama
opened at the Krug yesterday to the cus
tomary Sunday attendance. It haa changed
In nothing and Is being presented with
great force by the company having It In
hand. Some local Interest Is sfforded by
the fact that the leading woman of the
company Is sn Omaha girl, and was gradu
ated from the high -school but a little while
ago. She is Gretchen Buns, known on ths
stage as Oretchen Sherman. The engage

County Escapes raying.
Through the action of the Lancaster
County Insanity commission In commit
ting Alfred It. Simmons, a drug fiend, fur
Insanity, the county will save the expense
of his treatment. Such In effect is the
holding of Attorney General Brown, to
whom the question was submitted by Su
perintendent Greene of the Lincoln Hospital
for Intone, who said that the man was
not Insane, but merely suffering from the
effects of the excessive use of narcotics.
He luid refused to receive the man until
the question could be determined. Sim
mons will be taken to the hospital for
treatment. The attorney general held that
the officials cannot go back of the return
made by the County Insanity commission.
Making Room for Them.
The shipment of patients to the Norfolk
Institution has made more room at the
Lincoln Hospital for the Insane for per
sons committed under the new dipsomaniac
law. Prior to the completion of the new
buildings at Norfolk the. Lincoln hospital
was so badly overcrowded that many of
the Inmates were forced to sleep In the
halls, which made conditions dangerous.
Some dipsomaniacs had been received, but
the officials at the head of the Institution
did not encourage county authorities to
send them. Now, however, that some of
the Insane patients have been taken to
Norfolk, a considerable number of dipso
maniacs can be received. The number of
inmates hovers a little below the 600 mark
at the present time.
It Is stated that there Is a disposition In
many of the counties to make use of the
law In committing drunkards who have be
come chronic nuisances. The few months
which the statute has been In operation
has raised some novel questions as to Its
scope, but none more so than that brought
to light In Webster county where the
officials have sent a dipsomaniac over the
protests of his relatives, who pledged them
selves that he would not be permitted to
become a nuisance. The man Is now at the
state Institution being treated.
The officials of the institution say that
these patients are given the most modern
treatment and it Is believed that In most
Instances it will be successful. The men
under treatment are allowed liquor at the
start, but the quantity Is gradually dimin
ished as their craving for it is conquered
by treatment. No attempt is made to cut
the supply off at once for some of the pa
