Mr. Walker Whiteside Is presenting this
season a drama that falls hut little short
ct . grtatnes. It allows him a few mo
menta of that Intenae, concentrated effort
(or which he ha made a name, and give
bin). in opportunity for the ' full play ot
his unquestioned command of Illustrative
Ctteranc. In these few moments he rises
to a triumph as genuine and as sincere as
was vor attained. It comes at the close
f tha aacond act, when the nameless mu
sician denounces the selfish man of mil
lions. It la not cheap melodramatic clap
trap nor customary stage artifice that
brings this situation to the front. The
climax la reached as the result of a log
ical. 'sequence, and Is all the more dramatic
because It la ao. Mr. Whiteside takes One
advantage of It, evincing the full posses
sion of that singular power that marked
him: Ions ago as one of the most impelling
of American actors, and which makes the
listener-wonder why Omaha people so per
sistently deny themselves the privilege of
listening to this really gifted man. He

more than ordinary Interest, for the story
of the struggle of the young violinist for
recognition Is In some degree akin to that
of Whiteside himself. And. to his credit,
like Helmar. he has refused to advertise
his eccentricities to secure attention to his
art. He may not be able to command suc
cess, but he destrves It.
The story told in "The Magic Melody"
Is a good one, and aside from certain pal
pable crudities, it works out well for tiic
uses to which It Is put. Its "heart Interest"
Is strong, and .its human side Is genuine.
In the role of the young musician, lighting
bis way In the world, Mr. Whiteside adds a
certain comedy element to the situations,
world, or Its people, being uttered In a
his sardonic comment on some ways of the
genial, good nutured way.. The other char
acters are well drawn, and uro In excep
tionally good hands so fur as being acted
goes. In fact, the company is an uncom
monly well selected organisation and the
play Is given as the star would have It, in
a manner thoroughly artistic.
"Von Yonaon" at the Km.
This never-falling well sprit's or laughter
poured forth its stream of fun at the Krug
last night, to the intense amusement of a
good-sized audience. The old piece Is kept
up-to-date as regards specialties, and la in
tho hands of people who play It with a
test. It still tells the story of .a young
man from Sweden and some of the diffi
culties he encountered in getting a start in
America; how he was the instrument
through which a villain was thwarted, and
how, by his native manhood, he Anally
won. Oeorge C. Thompson Is the Ton Yon-
son of the present cast, with a good dia
lect and a comic specialty. Others of the
company contribute to this, and the "Lum
berman's quartet" is an enjoyable fcaturs.

Rt. Hon. Sir Walter Foster of the British
Housa of Lords wss a South Omaha visitor
yesterday. He arrived In Omaha Wednes
day evening and yesterday visited three ou
of the four packing plants. He was accom
panied by a government chemist by the
name of Kldner. He visited the Swift com
pany's plant first, and It Is understood that
he Is being entertained by the Swifts while
here. He asked to be shown over the
plant. He visited all departments and his
companion took copious notes. Manager
Edwards accompanied him and went every
where. He asked numerous questions of
tho employes and especially questioned the
government Inspectors as to their duties.
He appeared much Interested In all de
partments of tha packing: business. From
Swift's plant he. In company with Mr. Ed
wards, visited Cudahy's plant. After pass
ing through all the departments there Ar
mour's was given an exhaustive visit. The
visit of the Englishman sppears to be offi
cial in one sense. It appears that he Is
gathering Information to be used In com
parison with the English slaughtering ami
packing regulations. The knowledge he
may have gained In the American plants
may be the suggestion of some advanced
efficiency in the English code. He ex
pressed general satisfaction over conditions
as he found them In all the plants. The
managers of the packing plants professed
not to know that his business In South
Otnaha at this time hid any special sig
nificance, other than the seeking of Infor
catlon. On this point. Sir Foster let fall
no satisfactory hint.
""My Hall Contract Sl.rxi.
The city clerk yesterday executed the
contract for the city hall with McDonald
& Bock. The bond furnished by the con
tractors has not yet been deposited with
the clerk. It will he forthcoming before
the meeting of the council Monday night.

mayor is approved by the council the
work on the hall may be commenced. Tho

The clerk sent out a notification ' to
Hugh Murphy and his bondsmen, the
American Surety and Bond company, rep
resented here by Philip Potter, In accord

of Missouri avenue the city would lay
the paving and charge the difference to

to attempt the work of laying that pav

whole business would be tied up, If Mr.
Murphy so desired, by his bringing an In

Ella W. Teattle, formerly president of

Wednesdsy. her subject being "The Sunday
School Library." 8he said:
No child who Is tn become a person of

maudlin monMrosltles of the poorer sort
of Sunday school libraries. The poverty
stricken style of the grester part of the

hraries, the fictitious swards bestowed upon
virtue, and, above all, the misrepresenta
tions of life are distinctly injurious.

cruelty of keeping children upon peptonlred
milk exclusively after their teeth are cut
and when their bodies are growing. We
flliottld know what to expect rlcketty.

places In the vigorous world. Put we com
mit an equally great offense If we feed

ple upon what may be termed "peptonized''
It Is absurd, too, to try to Veep the
knowledge of sin and sorrow from them.
They must know the true story of the
battles if they would learn the significance
of victory. Let them have the laughter
and the tears, the cries' of vtctory and
defeat, snd let them become sware of
the splendor of literature and the struggle
if life. They feel It In s mystical way

slayer, but what Is the poetry of their
early youth must become the noble reallem

The usual luncheon followed.
Mrs. W. T. Brown, chairman of the litera
ture committee of the General Federation
of Women's Clubs, has the following to
say of some of the club programs and out
lines of study:
In looking over the outlines of study of
a great many clubs, the committee has
heen obliged to confess that, while sin
cerity in the keynote of the programs,
many show lack of sequence, and many
more seem to us to be too miscellaneous
to effect the best results.
Having received many Inquiries for study
outlines, also for Information on topics
which often seem without much value, ex
cept for the discipline of research, the
committee 1ms thought It advisable to pre
sent some subjects which we hope may
be helpful to those clubs which are not
We have prepared four programs which
will be distributed, the subjects being "The
Development of the Modern Novel." "Study
of I'nlted States History." "The Modern

An Interesting lecture, accompanied with
equally Interesting demonstrations, wss

by Prof. W. B. Patty,
on the subjects of "Wireless Telegraphy,

given before a large audience under the
auspices of the Crelghton University Ath
Prof. Patty adds to his qualities as a sci
entist that of an orator and the faculty of
divesting his talk of verbose scientific
technicality and at once puts himself on
the best terms with his audience. His
first experiments were with wireless teleg
raphy, which he Illustrated with a com
plete set of sending and receiving appa
ratus. He showed that the principle lay
wholly In the transmission of ether waves
to and from Instruments similarly attuned.
He believed that the time would come
when wires would be relegated to the scrap
heap and that the wireless system would
be the only means of tha transmission of
electrical energy for communication, light
Prof. Patty had with him six tubes of
radium. The lecture room being dark
ened for the purpose, he gave several
highly Interesting experiments with It, par
ticularly as regards its peculiar qualities
in disseminating light rays as well as
recuperating itself without any apparent
loss of energy. He believed that the capa
bilities of radium were Illimitable as an
energy, both as a curative of cancer, tu
berculosis and other diseases, but It pres
ent applicability as a curative agent was

KENNEDY GETS THE FAVOR
Congressman Instrumental in Secnr
tnar International Money Order
Servle for Substation.
Congressman John L. Kennedy has ro
celved word from Third Aasistant Post
master General E. C. Madden that the
international branch of the money order
service will be placed in operation No.
vember 1, at station 1, South Omaha. This
la In response to a request from Mr. Ken
nedy, celling attention to the fact that
many of tho people of the neighborhood
are Bohemians, who buy a great many
foreign orders and who frequently are un
able to transact their business In the Eng
lish language. Mr. Kennedy estimates
that foreign money order business among
the Bohemians at this station will amount
to J1.O10 monthly.
This Is a matter greatly appreciated by
these people- Station 1 was established
through the Influence of Congressman Ken
nedy and the concession of the Interna
tional service Is a great benefit. This Is a
matter to which Mr. Kennedy gave much
attention, exciting hi best endeavors, be
cause he was convinced U would be a good
thing for his constituents, mho were so
anxious for It.
His succc-rs has come much sooner than
was hoped poesiU and Is greatly appreciated.
