For a wonder, jMandy had built

when I went in to inspect it. Af

running- a hot, water bottle over
them that there bight be no pos
sibility of a chill for her, I went
back to the sitting (room, where
she sat still shivering, thongh her
heavy bathrobe was wrapped
aronnd her, and she was huddled
over to the fire.)
; "Come,, mother," I touched her
shoulder, and she looked up at
me pitifully. t '
"Do you suppose I am going to
be 111, Margaret?!" she asked, and
there was distinct fright In her
eyes. ;'.''!'. " : ' f '. .-'!'
"Not seriouslyTat any rate," I
evaded. "I think ton are over
tired, and have caught a bad cold.
But well hare yon all right short

I hare everything ready for you. M
: "I guess I don't hare to be car

of the spirit she had shown a
few minutes earlier. So I step
ped back to let her try the walk
alone, keeping near enough, how
ever, to catch her If she should
have overestimated her strength.

As I finished administering it, a
light knock sounded pn the door
"I telephoned Jim Page." she
said, tersely, characteristically
wasting no words, "and he will
be here almost at once. Now,
what is the matter, and what can
I do for you?' '
"I am afraid Mother Graham
has influenza." I said, secretly
quaking for fear she might think
we ought to take her to a hospi
tal if she were suffering from so
infections a disease, but determ
ined not to mince matters. "Of

her symptoms are very much like

"Don't worry, child." She laid
a capable, thin-veined hand on my
shoulder. "That's what we're

It. Mandy, of course, will do any
thing you wish, and so will I."

If the kidneys are not in a

David Belasco's production of
Avery Hopwood's famously suc
cessful comedy "The Gold Dig
gers,'' that ran for two years in
New York, and for a season in
Chicago, and that is now touring
for the first time will be seen at
the Grand theater, Salem, tomor
In this comedy Mr" Hopwood,
the most prolific and prosperous
of American playwrights brings
into view a fascinating group of
New York chorus girls, together
with their male admirers, and
leads them through a maze of
merry complications which may
or may not be true to life. The
young women of this province
of society are according to the
playwright, devotees of the art of
extracting money from the pock
ets of their friends through per
fectly legal means. These are
"the gold diggers."
The money so easily got is as
easily spent, to the enrichment
of dealers in all feminine luxuries
and to the added gaiety of the
nation. Of the group concerned
in the play there is one, Jerry
Lamar by name whose ambitions
rise above the mere getting and
spending of money, and it Is
around her exploits in advancing
the love affairs of a friend, as
well as capturing a matrimonial
prize for herself, that the plot is
There is not a little true-ringing
sentiment in the play but this
serves chiefly to bring the humor
of the story into higher relief.
The main purpose of "The' Gold
Diggers" is laughter, and the
critics of New York and Chicago
agree that it serves that purpose
Mr. Belaseo has staged the
comedy with the same artistic
care that he would bestow upon,
his most serious dramatic orf,
ing, and the touch of his genius
is to be seen in every detail of
the presentation. The larre com
pany is headed by Gertrude Van
derbiH, who is well known to
playgoers of this city, and who
last season won distinction by her
performance as Jerry Lamar
through the long run of "The Gold
Diggers" in Chicago. Amonx the
other members of the company
are a number of young actresses
who are noted for their beauty
as well as for their dramatic accomplishments.
