Headline, honors fall to Anna Eva Fay, called the "High Priestess of Mysticism," and judging from her astounding mental feats, the title is justly conferred. Briefly, nhtjvworks as follows: Anyone in the audience may write a question on a slii of paper and put it in his or her pocket. The? question may be about anything that can be answered from the public stage. " Miss Fay then not only repeats and answers the question, but she calls out the name of the questioner, -and indicates what part of the house the person is sitting in. t'om-nion sense suggests that there must be ..fraud or trickery about it somewhere but if so. it is imitoswible to detect it. Lloyd and wells offer a blackface skit that is laughable In the extreme. They are known as VThe Hoys From Dixie," and as exponents of Ethiopian : A TEXAS WONDER for kidney and bladder troubles, jriTel, weak and lame backs, rheumatism and irregularities of the kidneys and bladr der. If not sold by your druggist, by mail $1.25. Small bottle is two months' treatment, and often cures. Send for sworn testimonials. Dr. B. W. Hall, 2926 Olive street. St. Louis.T-Adr.

"Tuneful music, clever lines, a well-trained chorus and a splendidly balancVd cast combined to make Arthur Hammer-stein's "Somebody's Sweetheart," which played to "S. H. O." houses at the Kempner theatre Friday matinee and night, one of the best light musical comedies ever showing in Little Book. -The .score, written by Antonio Bafun- no, was especially good and was sung to advantage by all of the principals and the chorus. The cast was well balanced, with Charles O'Connor as Sam Benton, Burton Lenihan as Harry Edwards, Genevia Davis as Helen Wil liams. Berta Donit as Bessie Williams. Violet Beasey as Zaida, Ueorxe Dunstan as - BenHutKand Sly via Tell as theH uriental dancer. The best of the comedv fell to Mr O Connor and Miss Donn.

Miss Ueasev as Zaida. the Gvnsv iicaripycaiser, also was excellent in. her role and with her clever violin Dlavine was one ot tne cruet features of the show. Miss Tell gave two splendid dance numbers, a Spanish castnet and Oriental Janeesr William Hovell as a Spanish prince1 and John Dewey as the American consul to Seville also uan.llml their parts Well. Mr. Dunstan as Ben Hud had an excellent voice and his number, "Sultana," wag especially pleasing. Miss Beasley's violin number, "It Gets Them All," was encored sever'. times, j -: .. . .

"Heart o' the Hills." adanted from the story-by- John-Fox- Jr -wilt be -shown- at mis tneatre au next week, in this story Miss Pickford takes the part of a limited and whose . sweetheart insists on making her bait her own hook with worms. As Mavis Hawn, she is in love with Jason Honeycutt, a mountain boy who chafes under the cruel treatment of bis father and who is unrelentingly jealous ot tne attentions wuicu Mavis pays to one of the city aristocrats who visits in the mountains. As time passes Mavis and Jason take separate trails in their searches for education. They finally wind up, however, back at their mountain home to find Jason's father and Mavis' mother leading a cat-and-dog wedded life. Just as Steve Honey cutt is about to murder the Widow Hawn, the most exciting moment of the story arrives. Miss Pickford is supported by a strong cast of players and this picture promises to be as good or even better than "Daddy Longlegs," "The Hoodlum" and others of Miss Pickford's production.

"Glorl-anna" will be a the Kempner Wednesday. . With FriUl Schcff. Al II. Wilson and a cast of unusual all-round excellence, "Olorianna" delighted a large audience at the Atlanta theatre. Monday night' with its tuneful music, its exceptionally goad dancing, 4ts sparkling comedy, its costumes so fresh and bright and the compelling personality of its auburn-baired star. . Fritzl Scheff charmed her audience Monday night by sheer merit.-, Famous thbugh ahe is, she ,Is not o familiar locally as to find her popularity ready-made. She had to win it, and win it she did with her silvery voice, , with her magnetic presence, with her thorough bred appearance from the coils of her radiant hair to her slender ankles and the tips of her tiny feet, with that assured bearing, almost soldierly at times, which is 'so distinctively Fritzi Scheff. She has but two songs in the score, only one of which. "Why Don't You Speak for Yourself, John?" demands great applause; but she interpolates in the second act the favorite "Kiss Me Again," which she sang beautifully. Her encore was a darkey lullaby. The best of "Ulorianna is that J1 ntzi Scheff is by no means the whole show. Our old friend. Al Wilson, was never better in his own productions than be is m the semi-comedy role, of tjalloway. the lawyer. In fact, many in the au dience will agree that he was never so good. He has several songs ot m? own. too. notnblv "Mv ClimbinK Rose." and they were genuine successes. His comedy was brilliant, and his song with the butler over a wee .flask in the last net was one of the most positive hits of the performance. It is a splendid dance music and the dancing is one of the best parts of "Gloriftnna." Miss Margery Lane nnd Miss Harriet Press do most of it. The blond of this pair is so graceful thai you could watch her for hours without vearying. The chorus merits some praise both for looks and for grace. The costnmes of everybody, especially Fritzi Seheff's snappy gowns, are fresh, clean and pretty. . ing the first wife and destroy them for the sake of the little boy. In doing this she seriously compromises herself until the husband discovers that he has1 not been deceived by her, but by the one be has been idealizing. GOLFERS HOLD ANNUAL MEET - New York, Jan. 10. The annual meeting of the United States -Golf Association, which was held here last night, was one. of the most harmonious gatherings of club representatives that has been recorded in the 26 years' history of that association.

TRUST Resources in Excess of $50,- 000,000 for First Time in History $17,028,102 Gain. Arkansas Trust Company resources nt the close of business June 30. were for the first time in excess of fuO.000. 000, according to "Trust Companies of the United States," just published by the United States Mortgage -and-Trnst Company of .New xork. The total ng-nres for the state are $54,661,520. a gain of $17,028,402, or about 48 per cent over last year. The trust comDanv resources of the United States increased nearly 19 per cent and aggregate S11,100,44,U8T, which is considerably in excess or. tne total banking strength of the country less than 20 vears aao. John W. 1'latten, president or- tne United- States Mortgage and' Trust Company, in reviewing the past year's activities, says : "When this country actively entered upon hostilities the trust companies responded with prompt decision and patriotism to the needs of the hour. Contributing very largely on their own account to the success of the five great loans, they exerted a powerful influence upon their clients and friends to the further great assistance of the government Their support of other war measures was likewise of inestimable and immediate value, as was also their-cooperation in the distribution of war savings stamps and the encouragement of the policy of thrift. "The impressive total of $11,150,446,-000 trust company resources for 3919, a gain of $1,769,560,000, or 18.8 per cent over last year, is a most gratifying evidence of growth, affording as it does fresh proof of the spirit with which the -trust companies have met the increasing responsibilities placed upon them and assurance of continued healthy progress in strength and influence." - CHANCERY COURT NOTES.
