PAGE NINE SMART FROCK OF NAVY BUTE iSERGE EMFE1 HEW A?. THE WICHITA EAGLE, TUESDAY MOENING, DECEMBER 31, 1912. SHOW BIG HIT Interstate Amusement Company's Invasion of Wichita Theatrical World Gets Fine Eeception. The Interstate Aimisement company opened with a double performance at the Empress theater last night of five vaudeville acts. Big- crowds were at each show and insisted every act be followed by an encore. Preceding; the opening of the first how Claude Mills, representing the Interstate company, gave a curtain talk, outlining the policies of the company and explained its object in. entering the Wichita field. The bill is headed by the Charters & llolliday company, which presents a miniature musical, "An Alaskan Honeymoon," in three scenes by a cast of seven people. Bright snappy comedy, new songs, well given, and good dancing not only by the principals, but by a good looking chorus, make this an excellent vaudeville act. Ranking along with the headliners and as strong with the audience, were Charles Klass and Ben Bernie, billed as "The Fiddle Up Boys," who offer popular and classical numbers with the violin and accordion. They work with a snap and are both masters of the instruments they play. For one of their encore numbers, for there were several of them, they allowed the audience to name selections for them to play. Frank Kllmore puts in ten minutes telling new jokes and singing new songs. His comedy come so fast at times that they had some difficulty in keeping up with him. Ballernini's dogs are out of the ordinary. A feature of the act is that the dogs do not have to be coaxed, but seem anxious to work and do it with vim that shows good training and treatment. On account of a blunder of some baggage agent the trunks containing the wardrobe of the Gray Trio failed to arrive and they were unable to put on thtir act last night. The baggage will arrive in time for them to go on at the matinee this afternoon. Miss Grace Baird appeared in their place and made good with t lie audience with her voice and character numbers. .Frank Powell, one of Wichita's musicians, is directing the orchestra. lie has surrounded himself with a good bunch of musicians and is offering classy musical selections. o A ho nt lrket Knives and Hank Put a Keen Kutter knife in your pocket and money in the bank ONW Keen Kutter pocket knife wears so long that interest and having Cover t fie of Si;V'KliAL poor knives) makes a very respectable sum.

Alfred yon Kiderlen Waechter, secretary of state of the German empire, died suddenly at his home here today, after a brief illness. Von Kiderlen Waechter was enjoying his usual Clirlstmas visit to his sister, the Baroness Von Gemmingen, near here. He had felt extremely ill for several da3-s, so much so. that physicians who were called In feaied a fatal termination, as his heart action was very irregular. The end came with great suddenness at 10 minutes to 8 this morning, when t he secretary expired from heart fail- ; ure, while he was practically alone. Alfred yon Kiderlen Waechter was CO years old. lie had occupied office as imperial secretary of state for foreign affairs only since June 22, 1910, when he succeeded Wilhelm yon Schoen, who became ambassador to France. The advent of Kiderlen Waechter was not greeted with great enthusiasm in the German imperial parliament. He was a poor orator, and his speeches did not create a good impression. Ilewas known, however, --as one of the shrewdest men in German diplomacy, and was regarded as an .expert on affairs of t?ie near east, owing to his having been stationed for a long time in the Balkans and his disappearance from the German cabinet at the present time is considered to be a great misfortune. During his short period of office as foreign secretary, he was successful in steering the international policies of the German empire through a period of unusual entanglement, more especially in regard to the settlement of the dispute between France and Germany, as to the future of Morocco. The negotiations were brought to a successful termination last year when France and Germany signed an agreement as tiie result of which their relations have become much more cordial. o A. S. Wardell of Topeka, assistant bank commissioner, was in the city yes. terday to visit Wichita banks. o W. J. Sterling, president of the Bank i of Hardtner, Kan., was in Wichita yes terday on business.

"The expenditure of the $30,000 ha been the direct cause of this reduction" said Dr. Crumbine today. "We were able to show the people how to prevent tiie disease. The courts of tiie country have set S3.0&0 as the value of a human life, ro the three hundred less deaths that we have th i year, makes an actual saving of 11 million dollars as the. result of the work of the tuberculosis exhibit and lectures."
