Last night was amateur night' at the Majestic, as usual, and among the stunts put on by the ambitious youngsters who seek fame and some fortune on the stage, Clyde Pruitt and Merideth Ballinger were the evening's, stars. The youngsters were rigged up in Tery effective make tips. Pruitt being a miniature Police Judge Smeltzer, every detail attended to down to the goatee. His part of the show was to occupy 'the "bench" glance through a huge TOI- ume presumed to be the police docket, piving occaisional scandalized attention to the song being perpetrated by the little Irish woman who camp>ipon the scene with him. Young Ballinger was the washer woman, with a makeup that was clever and complete. The^ song was a parody on "Casey , Jones" and was written by Ballinger's elder brother, Walter Ballinger. .The _ fpet limp, hop, skip and jump, but the singer skillfully slurred or leaped over these chasms and canyons and the spoken version was quite smooth and won a round of applause from the audience. The words of the song foi-. low: Come all you rounders, and a, tale I'll . release. About Judge Smeltzer and Mrs. Reoce. He ordered a woman on the street to work. In a pair of bloomers instead of a l hobble skirt. Judge received a message from a la- | dy afar, 1 think they called her MIW Elizabeth | Barr. She said the Judge had ought to eat | hay And wear long ears in a faslilonable| way. WAN Chicago. Dec. 16.—'My Impression of your meat packers?" said the noted German arti.st. Ilerr von Peldt, in answer to a querv from a staff correspondent. "Well, 1 can ex!)rps.s iiiysi-If better l.y pencil than I can by words." And I then he handed over a few sketches he had made the afferiinon befmc In the Federal Court building where the ten Indicted beef packers are being tried. "One thing that iiiipr<>.ss.'d me as particularly odd," ho continued, "waa the nature of the questions propounded by the attorneys for the beef packer.-^ to the prospective Juror.i. Why, it would take a college professor to even understand some of the questions they askiU and to answer them Intelligently would re(i«ire years of careful study. Judge Carpenter is certriiuly a strong and Interesting man. J. Ogden Armour gave me the impression of a man who cares absolutely nothing for adver.se c.-itlcism. His face is that of a stoic emotionless and pre-occupied. Louis Swift has a pleasant expression, witii a suiil^ for all. It is certainly most interesting to attend one of these great trials where attorneys arc arrayed again.st each other in a battle of wits. The government seems to be particularly well represented in its prosecuting attorney." what to say, /'Wearing long ears and eating hay. Says '"Pon my buttons, I'd like to swear. But I won't see a woman do the 'Grizzly Bear".' I ask .Tudee i5meltzer why he did this deed, "It's the money not the labor Tola needs. We've pot men that is working for the city by the day. But when we work a prisoner there's no money to pay." The last time I sang this song Thp house was raided; everybody run Judge Smeltzer says, "Boys you'd better leave this town. Before you get a halter on and in the mule pound." The allusion is so well known and so recent in local history ; that the crowd's amusement was quick and — spontaneous. The night's bill was a sort of arraignment of the police department, by accident, one of the reels showing an innocent man railroaded to the pen and after his release being hounded by the police.

Is not doubtful In the opinion of the officers and an inquest.Is regarded as unnecessary. That the babes came to hacm while the mother wss mentally III and that Mrs. Speck attempted to take her own 11% by getting Into the rain barrel, Is'the conviction of the Investigators, and in v^w of these facts any proceeding other than one to officially determine tl|e mental condition of the unfortunate mother would be useless. It has, therefore, been decided to hold in abeyance further action In the case pending the outcome of ikirs. Speck's condition. Today, she lies in a stupor frbm which she can not be aroused and until her condition takes a turn foi- the better. If it does so, but little will be said about the sad affair. Coroner Christian.

The lola high school basket ball team was defeated last night at Baldwin by the high school team of that city by the score of 21 to 27, the game bfjing. as the score would indicate, about as closely contested as it is possible for a basket ball game to be. The usual line-up of the Ipla team was somewhat changed, and for this reason the usual lightning team work of the local boys was not in evidence, which was no doubt largely responsible for their defeat The Baldwin team is very well practiced In team work, but it is of the slow variety used by Buffalo, in'which the ball is BoiiiPtlnifS passed from the goal as WPII as toward it. and it is believed by local fans that this method would have been unsuccessful had the lola boys shown their usual form. However, there Is some glory even In securing a score so close with the Baldwin team, which recently defeated the Baker rnlvorslty team by a score of 37 to Ttn. The game last night was close all the way through, the tcore at the end of the first half being 13 to 11 in favor of Baldwin. The line-up of the lola team last night was as follows: Nelson. Ijenhart and Barg- lev. guards: Smith, center; Cantrell. Ritchey and Foust, forwards. The lola team is tn'tng to make arrangements to go to Baldwin next Wednesday night for another game with the Baldwin team.

In regard to this a neighboring c^etier tells a somewhat grim story. King Louis XIV. happened to be pass In^ through thfe city just at the time M^inswd was superintending the completion of bis creation. The roof wai supported by a powerful pillar. The monarch admired the work and congratulated the architect on his design. Ali! that moment the architect was passing through great domestic tribu- laliion. He had a son under sentence of;jdeath, so he thought it would be a godd opportunity to intercede on be-1 half of the lad. Hansard threw himself at the feet ofjithe king and said: "Your majesty sees In the center that massive column? If you will spare the life of my soji I will remove the unsightly pillar | and the roof shall stand without support." "Mansard," replied the king, "If i you accomplish that miracle I will pardon your son, but If you fail I will hang you with him." /The architect removed the pillar wliiout great difficulty and with the j re^It desired.

None of the party was dangerously injured but the macliine was almost demolished. Wienand and his companions had been to lola on business during the af temoon and started on the homeward trip shortly before nine o'clock. Their escape from being crushed to death is regarded as a most remarkable pro%idence. made on free throws.

Coroner'a Inquest Over Coins. A short time ago 160 gold coins, dat* Ing from the period of the Roman occupation of Britain, i^re found in a Itronze jar about ono foot below tho surface of the ground tliree miles from Hexham. JStagland, on' the site of the ancient Roman city of Coratop- Itum. A. ccrsner's inquest hat been held to. determine their ownersliip. The Jnry, however, was unable to agree as to whether the coins were treasure trove or not. tha jpontention of the owner of the land being that the coins bad been left on an ancient Iiighwar and abandoned during a raid by tlie Caledonians against the Romans. The coroner therefore agreed to keep tlM coins for a week to |tee it some ai^ rangement could be 'made with thi treaaurj as to their disposal. Care of the -^yes. If a woman has the slightest diffl culty with her sight, she should lose no time In consulting an oculist. Noth IngJ will bring undesirable crows' feet moVe quickly than straining tho eyes, an<l local treatment to prevent the lines will be inefficacious if the seat of the trouble Is not attended to. It is far I better to wear glasses when sew- Ingjand writing than to let the whole face have a drav.-n and aged look. Of course, massaging about the corners of the eyes will make a tremen- douJB improvement in a woman's appearance, but the work will bo with- ou^lresults unless she does It regularly every night ALso, If she Is trying to smiioth away crows' feet, she must re meiiber that stroking is IT .' to be done so severely as to loosen the skin, which would cause bagginess. but mejiely that friction Is to stimulate circulation, nourishing the skin tissues. 6 HORSES AND MULES 1 gray horse, 10 years old, wt 1100 lbs.; 1 span of gray pony mares, coming 6 and 7; 1 horse mule, coming 6 1 years old, hands high; L horse mule, 9 years old, 1.5 hands high; 1 marc mule, 6 years old, 16 hands high. 9 HEAD OF CATTLE. 4 extra good nillch cows, all will be fresh soon; 1 choice 3-year-old cow with calf; 1 red Xatjiral Muley, 3 yrs. old, giving milk, will be fresh in the spring; 1 choice black Jersey, 3 years old. fresh soon; 1 2-year-old heiler; I calf. 6 HEAD OF HOfiS. 1 brood sow, going to bring pigs; fat hogs, weight 200 lbs. each, and i shoats.
