Peters, of the Fifth ward. Charles Reynolds will continue the personal management of the Bridge City construction company's plant,on Biddle's island, regardless of the statements made by the newspapers to the contrary. in of One ot the greatest attractions of the regular theatrical season here will be Edward E. Rice's superb presentation of "The Girl From Paris," which will take place at Dolan's Tuesday night. The production has scored the most notable access both in London a&d New York, and is a combination of music, humor and stage effects so i artistically blended as to prove far j more entrancing than comic opera or its vaudeville offshoots. It is equipped with all the elaborate paraphernalia and extensive spectacular scenic arrangements of an opera which serves as a setting for the utmost pleasing scenes and situations devised for public entertainment many years. It possesses a story purest'comedy, daintily interspersed with the most delicate music. The solos and choruses have secured the greatest popularity by their peculiarly catchlness, while the ensemble work of the play, in particular, has received the most untstinted approval of the vast multitude who have witnessed the presentation of the production at the Herald Square theatre in New New York. The effectiveness of this combination may be more fully appreciated when It is known that, notwithstanding the great financial depression that existed in New York during the past season the average receipts of "Tbe Girl From Paris" exceeded $ 1,100 a performance throughout its entire uninterrupted run Of some 200 nights. Under these conditions its record is unprecedented in theatrical history. The libretto is by George Dance, one of the writers of "Tbe Geisha," and the music is by Ivan Caryll. The piece was called "The Gay Par- isienne" in London, but to avoid confusion with "The Gay Parisians" in ibis country, Mr. Rice changed the title to "The Girl From Paris." being practically the same as it was during the New York engagement, being accompanied with all the stage settings, scenery effects and mechanisms used at the Herald Square theatre. The only changes are those few in the caste which even serve to make the production stronger than it was previously. Among the members of the company presenting the piece will be found Mr. Edgar Haistead, as tbe "shining light;" Eoenezer Honeycomb; Mr. William Blaisdell, in the role of tbe amusing and volatile French spy; Mr. Augustie Pompier; Mr. James Sullivan, as Hans, "It is to Laugh;" Mr. J. C. Marlowe, in the character of Major Fossdyke of tbe Battersea Butterfly Shooters; Mr. Charles Drake, as Dingle, and Mr. Phillip Tomes, as Tom Everleigh; Miss Mamie Giiroy will portray the vivacious M'lle Julie Bon Bon, "The Girl From Paris," while tbe famous slavey "Suth" is interpreted by Miss Carrie Behr; Miss Grace Belasco will assume the part of Mrs. Honeycomo, and Miss Clara Lavlne appears us Norah," the daughter of the Honeycombs. Tbe noted youug French dancer, M'lle Fleurette, is also a member of the company, and will appear In her new creation, "La Paris- ienne." The entire caste is of the same ei- cellent character of talented people and is augmented by a large chorus of exceedingly handsome young ladles. The Globe Trotter Ntisance. The number ot persans who have a penchant for .touring the world grows larger each day. Seldom does a week pass but that at least one globs trotter arrives to tell that he has started from somewhere, "without a cent" in his packet and that he expects to make a circuit of the globe or the ;onttnent before a certain date. It is not Improbable that in a large number of Instances these people stick to the truth only when they say they hare started penniless. As for the rest, they are merely trying to get that living they are convinced the world owes them. Mrs. Roger Blaherty, who has been the guest of Mrs. Thomas Murphy, of Miami street for the past week, has returned to her home at South Bend.

MEMORIES Oft he Ylew Front Mount Thomas Thomas. In May, 1838, 'while on a visit to Logansport, George |W. Weeks, of Edon, Williams county, Ohio, was so impressed with the beauty of the scenery from the high eminence on the Korthside, then known as Mount Thomas, that seven years later he wrote the following poem: That morning was glorious—the landscape was fair As the Queen of tbe Spring could array it— Itseemed that the goddess of beauty wag there In her kn-eliegt sheen to display it. No longer did Venns all radiant glow. The fair queen, ol! a bright constellation. Nor Orion his pUttcriog tribute besto » To the grandeur of night's decorat on. Serene did the day-star in majesty rise. With its splendor the valley adorning And balmy and pure as elysian sfcies Were tbe rays of that boaut'ful morning, Through the wide-«preadlng vale fl jwed a silvery 8feam, Clear a? water from life's crystal fountain, i And pure as the emblem of truth was its gleam As I gazed from tbe heightof tbe mountain. On the banks of tbe Wabath In beauty and pride Was youag Flora fresh blooming in childhood And the green, waving forest beyond its smooth tide Where tbe Indian roamed In the wild wood. As I lingered to view from Mount Thomas awhile. It seemed that't were fancy's creation. Or that Nature reflected the Deity's smile To kindle my heart's adoration. That morning wag transient: It vanished away Like the shadowy form of a vision. And darkness and clouds kave sucoeedeii the day. When I gazed on that sunny elyeium: Bat when fleeting life to a close shall have drawn— When its birk shall be stranded and riven— 0. tben may a moroing more glorioui dawn. Eternal, unclouded, In heaven. Special Sale This Stand 39c Here is a well made and finisk- ed stand, the small stores sell from 50 to 75 cents.

The wholesale liquor dealers have made the unpleasant discovery ethat a recent decision of the appellate court regarding the quart shop law virtually made retail stores out or every wholesale establishmeat and brewery, as tbe law makes no provision for granting licenses to whole- gale houses. The effect of this decision is to virtually stop the wholesale dispensation ot spirits, but It in no way halts the retailing, which was the intent ot the Nicholson law. A test case will be brought. Holiday Thieving There is some complaint among merchants of supposed petty thieving that is being carried on during the holiday rush of business. It is only the smaller articles that are missed and boys are thought to be tbe guilty ones. In stores where there are crowds of people it is a very easy matter for anyone so Inclined to carry oft articles of more or less value without being detected in the act. A Struck Jury. In the circuit court yesterday Judge Chase ordered a struck jury in the case of Forgy against Harvey, a new trial having been granted by Judge Brownlee. The jury will be struck Monday.
