THE TALENTED ELKS
VERY SUCCESSFUL MINSTREL
PERFORMANCE GIVEN BY
LOCAL BEST PEOPLE ON
EARTH LAST NIGHT.
It happened last night, and today
there will be many who will glee
fully inform their unfortunate
friends, who were not able to secure
admission, what a glorious evening
was spent at the Elks minstrels. The
opera house was crowded to the
doors before the rise of the curtain
on a performance that could not be
duplicated except by the same peo
ple. From the opening chorus to
the fall of the curtain on the closing
sketch the performance went with a
snap, no waits occurring, and the
performance was a" surprise to, the
friends of the performers.
In the first part, G. C. Fulton was
interlocutor, and his commanding
presence and strong voice fitted the
position perfectly. Ten end men
and a quartette of balladists flanked
the august personage in the center,
the bones being rattled by Ed. Judd,
R. E. Caruthers, Fred Johnson and
Carl Franseen, while the tambour
ines were ratled by Bill Scholfield,
Harry Hoefler, Chester Fox, Henry
Miller and Nels Johnson. J. C. Mc
Cue, G. Zeigler, W. B. Schimpff and
C. H .Abercrombie were the quar
tette. Miss Gertrude Kearney was
the accompanist, being assisted by
the Imperial orchestra.
A beautiful chorus, by the com
pany, opened the performance and
it w4s followed by Harry Hoefler.
Chester Fox sang "Loving Time,"
both numbers being well received.
W. E. Schimpff sang "School Days"
very prettily, a fine feature being the
apperaance of two school children in
the persons of Charles Gratke and
Doris Hoefler. This made an in
stant hit. The ballad "Down in the
Depths," by G. Zeigler was a finely
rendered bass solo. Nello Johnson
sang "No Wedding Bells. For Me"
with such warmth that his popularity
with the ladies will surely wane.
Johnny McCue .sang "Sam Land" in
a purely loyal manner and he, like
many of the victims of the assistant
district attorney, sighed for liberty.
The contribution of Clint Draper
was "Hello, Miss Nellie Green," and
the word "great" covers that number
excellently. Charley Abercrombie
sang the final song of the first part,
"Bye, Bye, Dearie," and was in fine
voice. The closing scene was a fine
picture, that of an Elk changing to
that of a beautiful "Summer Girl,"
the character being represented by
Mrs. C. L. Houston.
Miller and Draper opened the sec
ond part with their sketch, "The
Minstrel Man and the Porter," and
the finished manner in which they
played their parts was keenly appre
ciated by the large audience. J. C
Swope, who was billed as "Astoria's
Celebrated Comedian," surely did
belie the title. A talking act pre
sented by J. E. Gratke, Charles
Wright and Charley Callender was
a very funny skit, but the cold-blooded
manner in which Gratke shot
Charley Callender with a toy cap
pistol may yet be a subject for po
lice investigation. Miss Kathryn
Shively sang "Some , Days When
Dreams Come True," and "Won't
You Be My Honey," and captured
The performance closed with the
plantation sketch "Moonlight on the
Mississippi," in which Nello Johnson
sang "Under the Tropcal Moon
light," Clint Draper sang "In Camp
Meeting Time." Harry Hoefler did
some trick roller skating and the
company indulged in buck and wing
dancing. Senator Bill Scholfield
represented Aunt Dinah in the
Too much praise cannot be given
to Messrs. Miller and Draper for the
success of their efforts in putting on
the good show and the parts they
took in the programme. The indi
vidual performers were each also
successful, and the whole presenta
tion was a credit to all. Tonight a
partial change of programme will be
made and the performance will be
even better than last night, and that
is saying much.
INDIAN VILLAGE WIPED OUT.
VANCOUVER, B. C, March 30.
The Indian village Secehl, SO miles

is to learn as to the relative standing: and reliability of the leading manufactur
ers of medicinal agents, as the most eminent physicians are the most careful as to
the uniform quality and perfect purity of remedies prescribed by them, and u is well
known to physicians and the Well-Informed generally that the California I'ig Syrup
Co., by reason of its correct methods and perfect equipment and the ethical character ot
its product has attained to the high standing in scientific and commercial circles which
is accorded to successful and reliable houses only, and, therefore, that 16 name of the
Company has become a guarantee of the excellence of its remedy.
TRUTH AND QUALITY ,
appeal to the Well-informed in every walk of life and are essential to permanent sue
cess and creditable standing, therefore we wish to call the attention of all who would
enjoy good health, with its blessings, to the fact that it invokes the question of right
living with all the term implies. With proper knowledge of what is best each hour,
of recreation, of enjoyment, of contemplation and of effort may bo made to contribute
to that end and the use of medicines dispensed with generally to great advantage, but
as in many instances a simple, wholesome remedy may be invaluable if taken at tho
proper time, the California Fig Syrup Co. feels that it Is alike important to present
truthfully the subject and to supply the one perfect laxative remedy which has won
the appoval of physicians and the world-wide acceptance of the Well-informed because
of tho excellence of the combination, known to all, and the original method of manufac
ture, which is known to the California Fig Syrup Co. only.
This valuable remedy has been long and favorably known under the name of
Syrup of Figs and has attained to world-wide acceptance as the most excellent of
family laxatives, and as its pure laxative principles, obtained from Senna, are wel
known to physicians and the Well-informed of the world to be the best of natural
laxatives, we have adopted the more elaborate name of Syrup of rigs and klixir of
Senna as more fully descriptive of the remedy, but doubtless it wl always be
called for by the shorter name of Syrup of Figs and to get its beneficial effects always
note, when purchasing, the full name of the Company California Fig Syrup Co,
plainly printed on the front of every package, whether you simply call tor Syrup of
Figs-or by the full name-Syrup of Figs and Elixir of Scnna-as-Syrup of Figs and
Elixir of Senna is the one laxative remedy manufactured by the California Fig Syrup
Co. and the same heretofore known by the name Syrup of Figs which has given
satisfaction to millions. The genuine is for sale by all leading druggists throughout
the United States in original packages of one size only, the regular price of which
is fifty cents per bottle.
Every bottle is sold under the general guarantee of the Company, filed with the
Secretary of Agriculture, at Washington, D. C, that the remedy is not adulterated or
misbranded within the meaning of the Food and Drugs Act, June 30th, 1906.

When the tide coming in!
Look out, o'er the restless waves f the bay,
Leaping and rolling, and troubled for aye!
Racing Nike coursers dark, to the shore,
Beating, yet kissing, the rock, evermore!
Scorning and rocking, the screaming gray gulls;
And fretting the feet of the pine-covered walls
Of the frowning, majestic Astorian hill
Unevenly beetling the sea's sentinels!
When the tide is coming in!
Look out and behold the wind-driven sails,
Bending like phantoms beneath thc-sca gales;
Bearing away to the uttermost world
Their endless cargoes of men and of gold,
While some arc returning from voyages afar
To meet our glad welcome over the bar!
Safely returning from over the sea,
We hail ye! Oh sails of Astoria Bay!
When the tide is coming in!
Look out, where the waters are kissing the sky!
How close to the Heavens the blue flood doth lie,
Where sails and sea and the clouds all meet,
(And, oh, but were Heaven as near to my feet);
Yet stretching away o'er the ocean beyond,
Are islands and mountains and wonders profound;

Refuse to Put Up Bond.
SEATTLE, March 30.-N6rthwest
lumbermen this afternoon refused
flatly to comply with the order of
the Federal court to put up bonds

to collect the new tariffs after that
date. The lumbermen announced
that the mills now running will close
down before the rates become opera

the largest gatherings of its kind
ever held in the Pacific Northwest,
nearly 300 mills being represented.
