William Courtney, Jane Laurel and others
lh "Mrs. Lefflngwell's Boots," a comedy In
three acts, by Augustus Thomas, under
direction of Charles Frohnian. The cast
(name In order of appearance on stage):
Mrs. Ronner Dorothy Hammond
Mrs. Rumsey Mrs. A. A, Adams
Dr. Rumsey Henry Harmon
Nora Eva Vincent
Orton, a butler Harry Llllford
Mabel Ainslee Jana Laurel
Walter Corbln William Courtenay
Howard I.efllngwell Louis Payne
Richard Ainslee Vincent Serrano
Mrs. Lefung-well Grace Heyer
Tim, a coachman A. Good son
Thomas Bonner Frank Burbeck
A driver Jay Wilson
Police sergeant Del Da Louis
Augustus Thomas is quick to conceive a
situation and turn it to his advantage. In
writing "Mrs. Lefflngwell's Boots," offered
at the Boyd last night for the first time In
Omaha, he was possessed of an Idea with
almost boundless possibilities for ' humor.
and these he largely realizes on. Once or
twice he finds himself almost cornered for
soma way of relieving a situation, but these
corners he turns by simply Introducing
some well-nigh Impossible occurrence as an
expedient, and away he goes Into smooth
water again. He brings osteopathy to his
rescue, even at the expense of his own
knowledge of Missouri geography, for he
was a long time resident of that state (and
maybe that's the, reason for the vicious dig
he hands to Louisville). At any rate, it
must be borne In mind that he wrote the
play for New York consumption, and the
average New Yorker doesn't know if the
train for California rune through Klrksvllle,
i mo., or Kenosha, wis. All he knows or
cares, apparently, is that California Is some
where west of Jersey City. What Mr. j
Thomas has done In this case is to place
several people in an unpleasant proximity to
each other, the disfavor arising from a silly
Jealousy on the part of a husband of bis
wife and a maiden for her troth-plight
lover. The situation Is one that a few sen
sible words might explain, but everybody
for the space of two acts and almost the
! third at least takes leave of common sense.
All save two, the lover and the old doctor.
These might have had a real pleasant even-
Ing if it had not been for the absurd con
i duct of the others. Vnder the clrcum
I stances they are deprived of rest and com
I fort, but with the aid of Mr. Thomas' faith
In the Still school of therapeutics they are
enabled to restore to usefulness a boy whose
moral perspective has been knocked galley
west, to reunite a husband and wife who
j have been thrust asunder as a result of the
boy's Inability to distinguish between right
and wrong, and Incidentally to let the cur
tain down on a lover and maid In close em
brace, with every reasonable prospect of
living In peace and dying In grease, no mat
ter where they might eventually be In
terred. The episodes appeal directly to even
a blunted sense of the ludicrous, for the
progress of the play Is almost farcical at
times; Its dialogue is smartly written and
some of Its satire Is keen. It hardly shows
Mr. Thomas at his best, and while It is
amusing and even entertaining In some of
Its aspects, one wonders at Its vogue of an
entire season In New York.
The company is fairly well calculated to
bring out the points aimed at by the author.
Mr. Courtenay conducts himself with Just a
trifle too much of composure, giving an tm
pression of his absolute certainty of the
outcome of the unpleasant predicament in
which he Is located up to almost the last
moment of the play. On the other hand. If
Mr. Payne were to borrow a trifle of Mr,
Courtenay's self-possession, he might make
his Lefftngwell more convincing. Kicking In
doors is awfully bad form, even In a Jealous
husband. Mr. Burbeck's Bonner is a fairly
good conception of a husband who thinks it
hardly good conjugal form to rout his wife
out of bed on a cold morning to rekindle
the fire In the furnace, but who doesn't un
derstand the mechanism himself. Mr. Ser
rano is a good Dick Ainslee while he Is bad,
and a trills mushy after he haa had his
cervical vertebrae properly adjusted by Dr.
i Rumsey, who. In the hands of Mr. Harmon,
' Is the cleverest bit of character In the
I whole arrangement.
Jane Laurel, pleasantly remembered in
Omaha, gives further evidence of the ability
she displayed here In "The PToud Prince,"
and deepened the Impression made on that
occasion. She has a fine Idea of her part
and executes it with evident sincerity.
"Mrs. nefflngweU's Boots" will be repeats 1
at a matinee this afternoon and again this
C. ti. Hendricks, custodian of the city's
voting machines. Is sending out notices to
the Judges and clerks of election Informing
them of their appointment. Each election
officer also is notified by letter of the dates
for holding a school of instruction and also
of the fact that they are liable to a fine
of not less than $3 nor more than tno for
failure to comply with the election lnws.
Officers of election must be at the polling
places not less than forty-five minutes be
fore the opening of the polls on election day
to receive final Instructions. In the matter
of Instructing election officers Mr. Hen
dricks, the custodian of the city machines,
and E. EL Ridgeway, custodian of the four
machines bought of the county, will work
together. It is the purpose of these custo
dians to Instruct thoroughly every Judge
and clerk of election In the operating of
the voting machines and In the keeping of
the records. Out of the sixty Judges and
clerks named by Frank A. Broadwell, clerk
of the district court, only fifteen have re
ceived any Instructions In the handling of
voting machines. It will be seen from this
that the two custodians have plenty of
work ahead of them insofar as the matter
of Instructions go. Schools of instruction
will be held at the different polling places
and also at the council chamber.
Din flam Hits; Windows with Soap.
Boys are again causing much annoyance
to business men and residents as well by
writing and drawing pictures on windows
with soap. The practice seems to be much
worse than ever this fall and In many In
stances boys write obscene words or sen
tences on windows. So far the police have
been powerless to put a stop to this work
and as a consequence windows have to be
washed every day now In order to remove
the unsightly pictures drawn and the vul
gar sentences written at night by the gangs
of boys that run the streets. Chief Brlggs
declares that If any of the culprits are
caught or the names of any given the po
lice arrests will follow and punishment
ineted out to the wrongdoers.
Increased Live Stock Receipts.
So far this year the receipts of live stock
at the South Omaha yards show a large
Increase over the same time of last year.
Up to the close of business at the yards
Friday afternoon the increase In receipts
was 64,206 cattle, 32.206 hogs and 134.250 head
of sheep. Last year at this time the ship
ments of live stock showed a decrease on
account of the packing house strike, but
this year there has been nothing to hinder
heavy shipments, as the figures above
Republican Rally Monday Mailt.
The republican county central committee
has made arrangements for a rally to .be
held on Monday evening at Workman tem
ple. Among the speakers who have promised
to attend are Hon. John L. Kennedy,
Charles Oreen. A. W. Jeffries and Henry
C. Murphy. This will be the .first big rally
of the compalgn In South Omaha. Candi
dates are expected to be present and show
themselves and speak briefly. Every re
publican In the city Is urged to attend as
well as the. democrats.
Friday was the second day of registration
and while the exact number registered will
not be known until some time today the
registration officers reported the registra
tion to be much lighter than was expected.
During the daylight hours very few voters
registered, but In the evening business at
the registration booths picked up and It
was estimated when the booths closed that
the total was about the same as on the
first day. There will be one more day of
registration, on Saturday, November 4.

he thinks she would have gone on to Lin

waiting for her.
A dispatch to Lincoln showed that ah
was In none of the hospitals there. Several
letters are waiting her at the College View
hospital. Another strange thing is that
she has never written to her husband, nor
has the little girl written to her father.
Stubs of the tirkets she used will be traced
today to see If she arrived In Omaha.
Wedel thinks that she might have lost part
of the money and had only enough left to
buy a ticket to Omaha, and that she may
be here working. He waa almost distracted
with grief as he related his story to the
police. Captain Haze assured Wedel that
if his wife was In Omaha she would soon
be found. Wedel put up for the night at
the Arcade hotel. Captain Hase suggested
that any clue to the woman's whereabouts
may be sent to the police station at once.

SEARCH FOR AMISSING WIFE
Starts from Worth Dakota to Mprola
Hospital, bat Does Not Reach
Jacob Wedel of New Home, N: D., ar
rived In the city last night in search of his
wife, Susia Wedel, who has disappeared.
She started for her home on October 1
en route to Lincoln, Neb., where she was to
undergo an operation at the College View
hospital. She neved arrived at her destina
tion. Wedel says he put his wife on the
train at Carrlngton, N. D.. and with her
his two little daughters, aged 9 and 4.
They paid their fare on the train to Minne
apolis, where they arrived on the morning
of the 4th. The woman bought a ticket to
Omaha that day at the St. Louis depot,
paying for herself, and a half fare for the
older girt. The train men say that the
woman started safely, but nothing has been
heard of her since. Inquiries were made at
all the Omaha hospitals last night, but no
one was found to have the woman in

get through all right alone. Wedel re
ceived no word from her and at last
started in search. The second conductor
between Caningtoo and Minneapolis said
that the woman told him that she had no
money, but Wedel says he had given her
120 to pay the expense of the trip and had
sent lino to the hospital In Lincoln. It Is
certain that the woman had money enough
to buy the ticket to Omaha. Why she did
not buy the ticket on to Lincoln is unex
plained. Wedel describes i wife as a
woman with dark, golden fair com
plexion and good looking. She Is about five
feet two inches tail and welyha "J podiula.
He says he cannot believe that his wife
would desert him. She had been sick and

The Hospe piano business Is eerious to you. It seems to be a careless grab
for your money in most piano stores.
We'd rather lose a sale than misrepresent one single thing about a piano
because you'll find It out, sooner or later. In this piano business we're standing
up for your rights.
That's one reason why our pianos are all marked with the lowest price
a plain-figure business Is fair to you a sliding price la unfair. We pay no com
missions to people who bring or send customers to our store. Our prices are too
low for us to do that, and it Is unfair business, besloes.
