Matheson Automobile Co. - WW! When Soo Hoo Doo was a resident of this...
WW! When Soo Hoo Doo was a resident of this city he was a mild and meek representative of the Chinese race, be longing to a Christian church and con ducting himself like any other respect able citizen. It is the naughty influ ence of Wilkes - Barre that has brought him into unpleasant notoriety. Be brought home a little - footed wife, to whom he had been betrothed for years, having Journeyed to China to get her. Both his wife an himself were high caste Chlne'ses. More than one prominent resident of this city will remember a certain night when a distracted Celestial rang the door bell of a handsome home and besought the lady of the house, who had befriended him In trouble, to A,u 5 i . l.:m knh "fv I nttle baby, he die." exclaimed Boo. "and she ely. velly much. Must have 'nother right away. I pay fifty dollar for baby, even good - for - nothing girl. You sure can buy girl baby for my wife. She velly sick and cly." It was' exceedingly hard for him to realize that even a girl baby could not be bought at a moment's notice on the streets of Scranton, and he was inconsolable, as was the pretty little sixteen - year - old bride, mourning ' her dead new - born child. Later another baby came to the small shop and she used fo be a source of amusement to visitors who caught glimpses of the shy little mother and the gaily clad toddler. They named her Jennie and not a few well known people of Scran ton took a great deal of Interest in the big Chinaman's family. His wife used to remark frankly upon the horribly large feet of the ladies who came in and She never recovered from her shyness and reserve. - But down in rrilke,s - Barre, Soo Hoo Doo is corftlnuaily appearing in some more or less unenvlaHe light before fjie police court. It seems too bad after the Christian influences he had in this city. , Wives at svfir.1,1 iiokar - lovine SerAn - ton men were offensively pertinatlous yesterday in their curtasity as to why their husbands returned bo late In the morning. .ij':c - Women never make successful or ganizers of strikes. They can make a heap of trouble during a strike and can cause more disturbance and do more exasperating things than men could devise in a year's time, but when it comes to organizing a successful labor contest for themselves they seem to be "shy on several points. The people of this community were divided ' into two parties yesterday, each equally offensive to the other. One was composed of those who saw the eclipse of the moon and who boasted so much of that achievement tlYat you might have thought they had arrang ed it as an evening entertainment, and the other party made of the ones who never knew there was an eclipse until they saw it in the morning paper the next day. Mr. Charles E. - Hamilton, advertising agent for the Family theater, for several seasons and for many years with the Lyceum and Academy, has re signed to accept a similar position with the Poll theater. - Fourteen years ago, Mr. Hamilton resigned his position with Mr. Poli In Connecticut and It is somewhat of a coincidence that he should again engage with him after so many years, At the Family theater, his successor has not been announced and .probably will not be until the season opens. ylmiMemente.

A par ticularly interesting prbgrammo has been arranged, and one of the features of the day will be the singing of a Welsh number by Bert Monphy, "the man who sings to beat the band." - The free attraction secured for next week of James E. Hardy, the high wire king, whose performances were so well received at Luna last season. Mr. Hardy returns with a new repertoire of sensational and startling feats. Alexander's famous Ninth Regiment fiand of Wilkes - Barre wllJ Ibe the band attraction next week. The duplicate number In '"what's your Luna Park number" game is still missing, although a very close search has been made for it. The holders of the two numbers will each receive $20 In gold.

In presenting the Rosnbelle Leslie Co. to the patrons of the Academy, next Saturday matinee and night and continuing throughout the ensuing week, the management announces that every available effort has been made to secure only the very best dramatic and vaudeville talent to be had, and has succeeded in. surrounding his tal ented little star with one of the strongest supporting companies with which she has yet been seen. The organization was perfected with a view to transporting the entire company Into a city stock later In the season, consequently only the very beRt stock talent has been secured. Four high class vaudeville acts will supply the Intermission between actH, making virtually two shows for one prlce of admission. Berwick People Plaed.
