Opera house on' April 19th r The House
of Bondage Is by Seymour Obermer, an
Englishman, who seems to have fairly
won both as a dramatic.literateur and
craftsman, exceptional honors through
this work. Working out plausibly and
with originality a theme of a daring
nature, Mr. Obermer has been equally
praised for his dialogue, and his construction. Tlie House of Bondage
seems to have a foundation of solid logic, lucidly expanded. Miss Roberts
in the central role of the Obermer play
eclipses, according to reliable report,
all of'her previous artistic efforts.
When this is said of Miss Roberts it Is
the acme of praise, for no woman
star, either of.native or foreign birth,
has toured this country with a moro
brilliant series of achievements recorded to her credit. - A truly great
actress, she is ever generous in opportunities to her' supporting cast. With
such players ns Arthur Forrest, Thur-
low Bergen, Ann Warrington.nnd others, n delightful presentation of The
Houso of Bondago,. becomes an absolute assurance,'

-."A duke-Duke of Florence, In Italy."
He had begun to watch her face and
seemed not impatient for tho bono.
"Florence? Italy?"  The lettuco dropped from her bauds.   Sho wiped her
hands slowly on her apron.

"Yes; I'll get it"

Brightly the mark glowed; subtly the

Almost a • start, marked Dunstan-

he cried. He raised his bat and turned
away, followed by his dog. Lorenzo the

ihem- into the kitchen. u
7'There you ore at last! • And what's
put you in a temper now?" asked Mrs.
Smilker. She bad learned tbe signs of

Sophy smiled. "It's not temper this
time. Mrs. Smilker. I—I'm very happy
today." she said. "Oh. I do hope the
salad will bo good!"
For he who was to eat of the salad-
had he not forgotten print frock and
soiled apron, bare arms, red hands,
ugly0 knot and execrable cap? , He
would not have looked at them—no,

all these.to look at:the stained cheek
and the eyes of subtle glow. She had

Lady Meg had iho known It. Bophy
wnn In aoro dlMgrnco-necuae-t tried and
rmvlcted of IntuboitUoatloo and no-
seemly demeanor toward Mrs. Smilker..
The truth seems to be that this good
woman (Rest her soul.' She has a neat
tombstone iri Morpingham churchyard)
loved, like many another good creature,
good.ale sometimes a trifle too well, and
tlie ordera she gave when ale had been
plentiful did not always consort with
her • less mellow injunctions. In no
■ vulgar directness, but with a sarcasm
which Mrs. Smilker felt without understanding, Sophy would point out these
Inconsistencies, Anger'ed'and humiliated, fearful, too, perhaps that her subordinate .would let the secret out, Mrs.
Smilker .made haste to have the first
word with the powers, and against the
word of the cook the word of the cook
maid weighed as naught After smaller troubles of this origin there had
come"a sort of crisis today. The longest of long lectures bad been read to
Sophy by mistress and repeated, slightly condensed, by master, then she was
sent away to think it over. An abject
apology to outraged Mrs. Smilker must
be forthcoming or. banishment was the
decree. Informed of this ultimatum,
Sophy went but and hung about tho
avenue, hoping for Julia to appear.
Soon Julia came and beard tho story.
She had indignation In readiness and,
what was more to the puipose, a plan.
Soon Sophy's eyes grew bright
Into this storm tossed house came
Lady Meg and her spaniels. This unkind name, derived at first from the
size and shape of Mr. Pindar's ears—
they were large and bung over at the
top—had been stretched to include Mr.
Pikes also, with small loss of propriety.
Both gentlemen were low of stature,
plump of figure, hairy on the face;
both followed obediently at tbe heels
of commanding Lady Meg. .The amenities of. the luncheon ;table opened
hearts. Very soon the tale of Sopby's
Iniquities was revealed. Incidentally
and unavoidably If, Sophy's heinous
fault were to appear in its true measure the tally of tbe Brownlows* benevolence was reckoned. But Mrs. Browniow wdii ' small comfort' from Lady
Meg.   She got a stiff touch of the truth.
"Ran in, and out of the drawing
room!" she said. '.'Did she? ,The truth
Is, Lizzie,-you've spoiled heri and now
you're angry with her .for - being
spoiled." •       -,_
"What is'she now, Mrs. Browniow?"
asked Pindar,- with a sly intention.
Was this Percivul's deuced pretty girl?
"She works ih the'kitchen, Mr'. Pindar."
"The girl!" bis eyes signaled to Mr.
Pikes.- "Let /Lady Meg1 see her," he
urged Insinuatingly. • "She'"bas a wonderful'way wlth'girls."*
"I don't want to see ber, and I know
your same, Pindar,"..said Lady Meg.
.."I'm afraid she must go." sighed
Mrs. Browniow. Her husband said,
more robustly, that such an event
would be a good riddance—a saying repeated, with tlie rest-of nthe conversation, by the butler (one William Byles,
'still livingi. to tlie'gratified ears of.Mrs.
Smilker in the kitchen.' ' '
She's hn odd child, and looks it"
"Pretty?"   This from Mr.' Pindar.
"Well. I .don't hnow'. .Striking looking, you'd rather.say perhaps. Mr.;Pindar."
"Let lior go ber own wny. We've
talked quite enough
about her."- Lady Meg
sounded decisive and
not a little bored,
"And then." Mrs.
I-Jrownlow mndo bold'to
go on for a moment,
"such n funny mark!
Many people wouldn't
like it, I'm sure."
Lady    Meg    turned
sharply on her,   "Murk?
What   do   you   mean?
What mnrk?"

Smlllicr.        tlm squlro.
"On hor cheek,"
"Whoro Is the girl?" nskod Lndy Meg.
Her whole demeanor had chnnged, ber
bored air hnd vanished "She seemed
fnlr excited," Mr. Byles reports. Then
sho turned to the said Bylos; "Find ont
whoro that girl Is, and let' mo know.
Don't toll her anything about It I'll
go to'her."
"But lot mo send for lior"— begun the
wqulro courteously,
"No; glvo mo my own way, I don't

The Tenderfdot Farmer
&* It was one of these experimental fanners, who put green
■■'•*  spectacles on'his cow and fed her shavings)   His theory
was that it didn't matter what the cow ate so long as she
was fed.   .The questions of digestion and nourishment had
.not entered,into his calculations. ;
It's only a "tenderfoot" fanner that would try such
an experiment with a cow. But many a fanner feeds him-
self regardless of digestion and nutrition. He might almost as well eat shav- '
ings for all .the good he gets out of his food. The result is that the stomach
grows "weak" tbe action of the organs of digestion and nutrition are impaired
and the man sutlers the' miseries of dyspepsia and the agonies of nervousness.
To strengthen the stomach, restore the activity of the or.
fians of digestion and nutrition and brace up the nerves,
use Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery., It is an ua»
taillni remedy, and has the confidence ot physicians aa
well as the praise of thousands healed by Its use.
In the strictest sense "Golden Medical Discovery" is a temperance riiedi-
eme.   It contains neither intoxicants nor narcotics, and is as free from alcohol   o
as from opium, cocaine and other dangerous drugs.   All ingredients printed on
its outside wrapper.
Don't let a dealer delude you for his own profit.   There is no medicine for
stomach, liver and blood "just as good" as "Golden Medical Discovery."

being able to show any more than 134
The game started late. 'Tis said that
Chaperon Scott, who had the platers
In tow, was giving „them a little heart
to heart talk on right,down the centre
and a little more speed. Tom Whelan
was under special coaching treatment^
throughout the game. *
Doc Wriglesworth managed to climb
the stairs, and'appeared with one , of
G, N, R. Blackstone's Sunday handkerchiefs tied around'his. left stump
midway between the . pedal and
where the aforesaid stump hitches on
to the rest of his body.-He grasped
the sphere in his. lunch hook, and after two or three high dive motions let
her flicker, and to his great surprise
and delight knocked off ,two pins at
the'-end towards Morrisey and the Lizard Range. He was a" great help' to
the Fatters'his good looks being about
their only redeeming feature:
*■ Mr. Hit Em on the Nose Scott has
been some bowler a couple of hundred
years ago. The day after he limbered
up, but has given us a solemn promise that he,is off to the woods and that
his bowling career is over, and that in
the evenings hereafter he will' stroke
the old malt'ese cat and read'the columns of the Ledger.- ■'.,-. . ■
***Mr. "Rotten Split" Blackstone, ,is
one of Jim Hill's side kicks in. the sand
car business - between ■ here and Slko,
with, numerous .branch lines between
Spokane and Chicago, He was a' trifle, nervous at meeting such classy
avtists.' He smiled as he dug into his
jeans for a dollar' bf lawful currency,
so he's a good sport.-
Tom Whelan jumped 'into the • game
like a 20 to L shot,'and after cutting
out his. alee samee ditch shots, he
hit. three figures with the.. same. ease
that Archie G. takes the cash.   ,"
"Aha, you Miekmillan fellow!    You
can't weigh 250 pounds to- save'  your ,
neck! You made the loud noise of the']
whole outfit and were qute' the* big-
fly wheel'of the evening. .
As.to our own five dandies we,, are
too modest to particularize; suffice it
to- say that .we negotiated with 148
more pins than our obese pals.
, The boarders from the King Edward
hotel and the Pie Eaters from the Royal met at-Ingram's bowling alley on
Thursday evening and played -havoc
