Leah—Next Week.
The splendid production of this play
at the Grand last season will be re
membered by those who saw it, as one
of the very best performances ever given
by the stock company. The part of
"Leah" one of the most intense charact
ers ever created by a playwright, gives
Miss Truax an opportunity to display
her ability in heavy work. The part
is almost as tragic in its intensity as
"Lady Macbeth."
Leah, the Forsaken, by the late
Augustine Daly, has frequently l>een
seen in Pittsburg in former years, when
it was more popular with each succeed
ing production.

Where all the colors come from, and
where all the patterns come from are
only known to those who make them or
put them together, but it is a fact that

Butler—and an inspection of his sample

When I Say That
The Davis Sewing Machine leads all
others, it is not merely to fill a colnmn
with an advertisement. I mean that no
other machine is so simple' I mean
that no other machine is so finely made!
And that no other machine is so easily
run! The "Davis" is polished like a
watch; it will not kill a woman to run
it; it will do more than double the
variety of work, without hasting, than
any other machine can do. All other
sewing-machine men acknowledge this,
but says, "Our sis the cheapest." But
I say that to buy a cheap sewing ma
chine is not economy. The best is al
ways the cheapest. I also sell Behr
Bros' Matchless Pianos. For further
