So long OS I live and stay on the payroll of this paper no long-eared gazebo who has no appreciation of the seriousness and dignity of the drama will, ever write another show. I do hatelto see the drama mussed up and 1 hate to see the real stars of a performance neglected in order that tf!e Javelin may be thrust into the hide of some mere ham. Being an Elk. T asked the city editor that two good men be assiened to handle the minstrel show Friday night. He sent one of the Capital 's special correspondents and the political editor to do the .stunt. Now tT 'C special rorrea- pendent and the political editor are cood men in their line, but they have no appreciation of the drama and they wer<^ so dad blamed anxious to throw the hooks Into nie that theiy devoted the entire space assigned to that end. T ere wasn 't a wori about the show, jior a friendly band for a single one of the performers who really starred In the menage. The entire charge was. aimed at the Interlocutor. Now, the Interlocutor in a minstrel show is about as important a perionage as the bridegroom at a wedding. You can't very well get on without bim but on the night of fiie show he Is the least important person or thing about the theatre. Any stick, any dub, almost anv Imbecile can be an IntPrlocutor. That's one reason I was picked for the place. An interiocn- tor has about as much to do with the success of a show as the buttons on vour under^:irt have to do with the keeping your trou .sers pressed. The real stars of the Elk'.s minstrels were Miller and Draper, the men who nut it on. They make a specialty of their work and kno^ their business. They can take a bunch of untamed Indians, pick them off the warpath fn fact, and in a week have t ^em so sweetly gentle that they will sin^ tremolo stop music without a discord. And they can Jump a jack rabbit out of the long grass and In two hours teach t *be Jack a gag that will make the audience 80 control itself with lauibter fhat it doesn't pet the kinks out of its diaphragm for a week. Miller Is the business manager of the concern and doesn't pretend to be much of an actor, but be can do anything around the theatre, from putting the grear,e paint on the face of an amateur to leadln?' the orchestra. He ia the sort of handy man who can do Hamlet in one scene and go on and take George Ctfnan's place in the next. Draper, on the other hand, is the real goods at the bones end of the semicircle. is about as good a iiiack face comedian as this town ever sees, and tlew Dockstadec and Ai (L^eld come bere every year.

RATIONAL VVRE FOR ECZE.VA. \o More Doslnff tbe Storaaeh—Cure tbe Skin Through the Skh. When you have a scratch on your band you wash it out and cleanse It and then tbe skin cures Itse^lf. You do not take blood medicine to cure festered wound. The best skin specialists today are agreed that the only way to cure the skin Is through the skin: The fact that eczema is a skin dis ease and not a blood dl.sease is evi dent from statistics which show tliat nearly all eczema sufferers are perfectly healthy in all other ways except as to their skin. If the eczema patients were really suffering from an Inward malady, the entire body and not only the skin would be diseased. You can prove immediately the relief of a true skin cure by using oil of wlhtergreen as comiiounded In D D. Prescription. This liquid attacks the disease germs, numbing them while building up the healthy tissue of the skin. We have now handled this meritorious and thoroughly scientific remedy for so long and have seen Its reliable result so many times that we freely express our confidence. Chas. B Spencer & Co. THE LIGHTNING STRUCK. Half a Dozen Places Suffered From Monday's Storm at Humboldt. the Humboldt Herald says; The rain storm Monday afternoon did considerable damage over town. The rain was heavy and while not continuous came down so plentiful that It flooded the gutters and made the streets Impassable while it lasted. Lightning struck In at least halt, a dozen places Injtnd near town. No gi-eat damage was done, yet it will take several hundred dollars to cover the loss. ' The greatest shock occurred at the ome of iEvcrt'tt Peory in the southwest part of town. .Mrs. Peery was lust leaning over the crib In which ;he bahieH went lying when tlRhtnlng struck the house. The roof was torn rroni the north H I I I K of tho house, the west wall WHS eavinl In and some dam- ngtf was donii tu tlin oast sido, Tiio damage aiuounis to two hundred dollars or more iis It will probably bo necnssorv tu put on a new roof. Mrs. I'cery was sMinnod by thn shock and fell to the floor. 'She wan amused at once, however an'l rushed out of doors. Her nerves were so unstrung that she was hysterical uotil evenlnf. The home of C, Helm received a shock. Mrs. Helm was stunned a little but not seriously. Some damase was done to the porc<h.. The bam belonging to John Heas was struck and the roof damaged considerably. Mr. HesB and his brotbier Prank and Dan Palmer, who had tak- stunned.

Washington. Nov. 27.—So rerioii.sly Is the situation regarded by Sucretary Wilson of the Department of Agriculture that he will ask for an emergency or deficiency appropriation of niil^ lion dollars for immediate use in com bating the foot and mouth dl.sease. The malady Is now known definitely to exist among cattle in Pennsylvania, New York, Michigan and Maryland. Dr. S. E. Bennett, chief of the government inspection service in Chicago, diagnosed the.disease today in a bunch of cattle In Llnsboro, Md., a.s tbe foot and mouth disease. Secretary Wil.son will return to Washington from Detroit tomorrow for a conference with Maryland state officials as to precautionary measures. lliB altogether probable that England win quarantliie against tbe |u)rt of Baltimore.

Jessie Alorrif.oii is now serving a iwenty-fivo-yr-ar sentence for murder in tlie second degree. Iler home waa at iCIdorado. .About seven years ai;o she was in love with O'An Castle tlit^re. Castle jilted her and n)arried another young woman, also of that town. Whereupou, iu due time., Miss .Mur-! risoii went to the Casio home and in a Iiand-to-hand encounter cut .Mrs. 'Castle's throat from ear to ear. .Mrs.. Castle struggled for several days, but! finally died of the wounds. Miss Morri.sou was arrested for murder. She was tried three limes. The first trial resulted in a hung jury. She was convicted of a low degree miirdSi' in'fhe-seCbtid- IrlaVdnd sentenced to five years. Her attorneys appealed and the case was reversed. At the third trial she was convicted of murder in the second degree and given tlie limit—twenty-five years. Judge Shinn pre.sided at the first two trials. He was accused of being friendly to the Morrison side. .ludge Aikman. the present Judge, presided at the third trial. He was suspected of being prejudiced against Miss .Morrison. It is understood that Miss .Morrison pleaded with her lawyers after the .sec ond trial lo let her take the five-year sentence and not appeal the rase. Hut ^ they were confident that they could; aicqult her finally >and appeaed against her judgment. \Vi\c\\ they lost out on the appeal In the third trial -Miss .Morrison gave tbcni a J.',<KI(! talk ing to. No case in Kaiis :tK. except po .s .<ibl; the John Henry Collins casw- of Topeka, ever attracted so inucii at ten lion. The peoule of ICIdorado were lined nil bard one way or ilie other on tbe case. Everybody seemed to lake sides. Tlve friends of the f;irl are just lift devoted, to her Kitifp utiw as ever>they were, but the hatred of the oiher side bus softened somewhat and it is thought that there will I )e no Keneral proltst against Coveriior Stubbs pardoning her.
