the smoothest seen here in a long time.
His tricks are well performed, espec
ially the coin and card trick. He has a
happy faculty of getting his audiences
in good nature by his witty remarks
and together with his talk and tricks
gives a first-class entertainment. "Es
panita," gives a very "pretty dance
with colored light effect and ended her
preformance with her globe rolling.
These people are top-notchers and their
performances are worth the price of
admission: "Ben's Kid," the first film
shown, is a western story and is one of
the best. The chase of the husband
after his wife is thrilling and the scene
in the bunkhouse of the cowboys is as
funny as anyone could imagine. "The
Cry from the Well" is a foreign story,
and while well acted and staged, is not up
to the first one. The bill will be re
peated tonight and crowded houses are

When former Governor Samuel It.
Van Sant, who was recently elected
commander In chief of the G. A. E.,
went to New York a few years ago a
former resident of Minnesota called
upon the governor shortly after his ar
rival and was shown to his room in his
hotel. He found the governor sitting
in a chair surveying with a gloomy
countenance a trunk which stood
against the wall.
'What is the matter, governor?"
asked the caller.
'I want to get a suit of clothes out
of that trunk," was the answer.
"Well, what's the difficulty lost the
'No; I have the key all right," said
the governor, heaving a sigh. "I'll tell
you how it is. My wife -packed that
trunk. She expected to come with me,
but was prevented at the last moment.
To my certain knowledge she put in
enough to fill three trunks the way a
man 'would pack them. If I open it
the things will boil all over the room,
and I could never .get half of them
back. Now, ' what I'm wondering
about is whether It would be cheaper
to go out and buy a new suit of clothes
or two additional trunks'."

Boston Medical Experts Predict Them
For Humanity In a Thousand Years.
Medical experts of Boston predict that
civilized man will have hoofs instead
of feet in a thousand years. No less
personages than Dr. David D. Scannell,
surgeon and ex-Harvard athlete; Lewis
F. Small, an orthopedist, and Dr. L.
R. G. Cranston and Dr. E. H. Brad
ford, both of the Harvard Medical
school, see this probability.
Dr. Cranston says the human foot has
become a hind foot or hoof in use if
not in actual form. Dr. Small says the
civilized races are slowly reverting to
hoofs and that we must go to the Jap
anese to learn how to walk. Foot trou
bles are unknown among them.
