A drama in four acts by Jacob Oordin,
presented In Ttddlab. The cast:

ivaroima, their daughter... Mrs. Bcnoengoia
Mark Kornweita Mr. Blmchowlts
Mote Shtrelchel Mr. Schoenholi
Chaste, his daughter Mme. LI pain
The soul of a girl was mirrored forth by
Mme. Kenny Lipaln last night, a girl
against whom unfortunate circumstance of
birth, poor choice of a husband and the
limitless malice of his family conspired
with baneful result A tragic ending was
Inevitable and was felt to be inevitable
from the beginning of the drama until the
minute when the girl exiled from her home
Comedy relief is afforded In many of the
lines scattered through the play, but for
those who lacked of knowledge of Yiddish
the grim development of plot stood forth
the more starkly because they missed the
Point la these cases.
Mme. Upain herself, a woman nearer St
thaa 40, had been seen the night previous
as an elderly woman. As a girl of It she
made old theater-goers think of Maggie
Mitchell playing "Fanchon" when she had
passed the three score mark. Her chance
for glrllshness came chiefly in the first
act, during which her father brings her to
the house of Trachtenberg and there leaves
her. Until near the close of this act aha
is a romping, gawky, hoydenish girl. But
sorrow shakes ber when her father rises
to depart, aad as memories of her dead
mother add te her emotion she cries plte
ously. Mora aatural-seemlng woe than she
depleted is not often seen, though the emo
tion is relatively mild to that at the does
of the third act and through the fourth.
The v story progresses rapidly from now
on. Vladimir, the son and heir of . the
Trachtenberg steals a bracelet. Chaste,
who knows his guilt, is accused but keeps
silence though tortured by Mme. Trachten
berg and her daughter to make bar con
fess. Her silence awakens Vladimir's love
which the girl returns and they run away
and are wed. .
Their married Ufa is about as happy as
might be expected, when the husband is
a weak and dissipated character, unable to
earn a cent and without aid from angered
parents. The latter come to bring about
a separation. In the second act when the
girl was tortured to make her confess the
theft, the physical suffering inflicted
seemed brutal enough to make the least
sympathetic spectator feet badly. Tet this
was not nearly so moving as the mental
anguish which mounted to a heart rending
climax as Chaste is forced to contemplate
and to acquiesce in separation from her
husband and baby.
Too much had been asked of her. 8he
had promised more thaa might be borne
and a self-inflicted death even if wrong
was logical. There were some interesting
studies in hysteria given during the prog'
ress ef the drama by Mme. Li pain, but her
acting la ths final scene was a treatise la
Ths support seemed better than la
"Mlrele Effroa." Vladimir. Chasle's hus
band, was excellently played by Mr.
choengold and Mrs. Finkelsteia was ef
fective aa his mother. Of the other Mr.
Schoenholta as the girl's father merits
mention. Borne of the minor characters
stood in need of considersble prompting
and the voice from the wings was oc
casionally dlaillualonlng. The stags craft
showa in tha scene where the mother and
daughter torture Chaste was Ingenious.
The scene occurs behind a laundry table
and the twisting of the girl's anus Is not
seen, but left to the Imagination. It Is
at least sufficiently harrowing thus.

The Stomach Does
Hot Cause Dyspepsia
Neither Will It Care It Became the
Lark of Gastric Juices
The stomach Is a strong, powerful or
gan, which is composed of muscles of
great strength. It is filled during di
gestion with gastric Juices which, when
the stomach, extending and compressing
the food, dissolve It and separate ths
nourishment from the waste matter. If,
however, these gastric Juices are lock
ing tha stomach is not capable of digest
ing its food, because it haa not ths tools
with which ta work successfully.
The gastrin Juices when in a perfect
state do away with all foul odors, fer
mentation aad decay, reduce the food to
S disintegrated mass and tha atomach
thea presses It into the intestines, where
another farm of digestion takes place.
Then tha intestines take from thla mass
of food all that is nourishing and glvs
it to the blood. The waste matter is
thrown from ths system.
If Instead of nourishment the Intestines
receive Impure deposits combined with
a poisonous and imperfect gastric Juice,
tt can be readily seen that they must
turn such Imperfect nourishment li.t ths
bleod. The blood, then, being unable to
give each part of tha body that which
it requires, becomes impoverished and
disease is spread broadcast.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets correct such
a condition at once. If the gastric juices
are lacking aad Imperfect these tablets
do their work Just the same. They build
up the elements in the Juice which are
lacking snd remove thoss elements which
Meat, grains, fluids, vegetables and
delicacies, la fact each portion of a large
meal have beea placed in a glass vial
and Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets have di
gested them to a perfect fluid Just as a
healthy stomach would do.
A large complex, hearty meal holds no
terrors for a dyspeptic if Stuart's Dys
pepsia Tablsta are used. Abnormal eat
ing, late dinners, rich foods, cause 111 ef
fects to tho atomach, but when Stuart's
Dyspepsia Tablets are used one may eat
whea and what one will without danger
ef dyspepslA or discomfort.
Forty thousand physicians endorse aad
prescribe Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets and

ers last night to argue bis protest against
ths granting of saloon licenses by ths

tha affect that under the Elocumb law sa
loon licenses sre valid only during tha
year tn which they are granted and that,
therefore, licenses for the year Hot can
not legally be granteS until the first day
of January. The protest wss overruled
by the board, whereupon it was intimated
that an effort will be made to protest any

The greater part of the session was oc

each side, after which the board over
ruled the protest and granted the license,
