Grand Opera House, I'ittshurg.
The retnrn Miss Victoria Bateman
to Pittsburg as leading woman of the
Grand Stock Co. is proving something
of a sensation in teeatrical circles there.
Miss Baternan in "Sue" this week is
making one of the most pronounced hits
ever known in Pittsburg, and the Opera
House is doing a great business, Miss
Bateman is a magnetic little woman.
She is artistic in her work, and is cap
able of playing emotional and tragic
roles as well as comedy, in fact, she
has nearly every sort of work in "Sue"
that might fall to an actress in a whole
season of stock. The character of Sue
is a complex one, and tin? ingenuousness
of the does not render her incapable
of the height of dramatic feeling. Miss
Bateman is more than satisfactory.
She is great. Her appearance has been
nothing less than a triumph. All the
favor that she won when with the
Avenue stock company is surpassed by
the receptions she is getting in "Sue" at
the Grand. The play has caused some
thing of a sensation on its own account.
It is one of the blronxest and best things
seen in Pittsburg in many years, and
the stock comyany is rendering it x>er
The play for n<-xt week is not less
worthy, but it is of a different type.
It is Jerome K. Jerome's brilliant com
edy, "The Way to Win a Woman."
Concerts will be given weekly
throughout the season until the middle
of March except one week in December
when the out-of-town engagements
made demand absence from Pittsburg.
The next concerts are Friday evening,
Nov. i»t h, and Saturday afternoon Nov
ember loth. People living outside of
Pittsburg will find it very convenient
on Saturday's when they visit the city
for any purpose to spend the afternoon
in Carnegie Music Hall, Schenley Park.
Tho concerts last only two hours from
2:15 o'clock. There is always a good
program and as soloist, a superb artist.
For the next concert the soloist is
Miss Lillian Blaovelt an American so
prano who has been honored in all the
great concert rooms of Europe. The
program includes a symphony by
Brahms, an overture by Goldmark and
selections by Fuchs and Wagner.
Tickets can be ordered by long

We Give l6tol
and always have. In sell-
WtZSft' £oods over the coun-
ter we give you sixteen
ounces to one pound and
down vveight at that. Tliere
is a very common error
abroad as to druggist's
weights, many believing
that when they buy Cream
of Tartar, Borax, Sulpher
or any of the thousand and
one items that druggists
sell they get Apothecaries
weight—l 2 ounces to the
pound. This is an error;
we give you Avoirdupois
weight, 16 ounces to the
pound. Apothecaries
weight is used only in pre
scriptions or in the prepar
ation of medicinal prepara
tions. One pound Apoth
ecary consists cf 12 ounces
of 480 grains each, a total
of 5760 grains to the
pound. One pound Avoir
dupois consists of sixteen
ounces of grains each,
a total of 7000 grains to
the pr ind. The Avoirdu
pois pound is heaviest by
240 grains, because it con
tains sixteen Avoirdupois
ounces. You get 7000-
grain pounds here and the
finest quality of drugs that
money will buy.
