At the Orpheum
Always abreast of the times. Lew ,
Dockstader. the celobrated minstrel ,
comedian, who has rarely failed to seize
upon live topics for his material, is tfhe
' leader in the program at the Orpheum
this week. Dockstader thrusts his shafts ,
of satire at. Mr. Roosevelt. He is alive
to the issues that have given tihe former
President the spotligjit for the past few '
years and most of his patter is clean
cut and full of meaning. He appears
| in the familiar khaki costume and his
smile displays the jromineut teeth of
1 the tourist. For fifteen minutes DocTc
stader talked and if Colonel Roosevelt
1 would have been present lie could not
ihave retrained hearty laughter at Lew
Dockstader's impersonation of himself,
which is so clever in all tlhe details tihat
it is positively artistic. Also Johnny 1
Dooley and Yvette Rugel, former stars
i of "The Honsewarmera," are here to
I delight this week. To the hilarity of
i all Mr. Dooley goes through ridiculous
gestures, sometimes landing on the otti
i er side of t'hc footligfnts, socnetimes al
' most under curtain and graceful is no
s name for it, that is with all apologies
' to Mr. Webster's definition of the
word. iMiss Rugel is pretty and petite
> and is just as pleasing as Dooley is
I funny and awkward. They .were a hit.
i &«ucy Gillete proved 'herself to 'be a jug
gler of jugglers. Her feats are wonder
ful and her manner so pleasing anil the
staging of her act so unusual that she
entertained every minute she was oh
view. The news of the Orpheum's fine
Show will travel, ft, is worthy of capac
ity audiences all week. Adv.
At the Colonial
Expecting a vaudeville bill of unusual
caliibre, patrons of the Colonial turned
out in big numbers yesterday to wit
ness the first bill of improved vaude
ville. Pour acts and all of them really
good Keith acts, were presented. The
fact that the pictures are shown before
and after tthe vaudeville bill, seem-ed
to Strike a papular note with the audi
ences. For the first 'half of the week
a fine little mimical comedy called "The
Hell Boys and the Belles" is tthe (head
liner. James Kennedy, who won favor
at the Orpheum several seasons ago, is
there also, presenting a comedy called
"Jack Swift," assisted 'by a 'capable
company. Two other entertaining fea
tures round out t'he roster. At each per
formance during the first 'half &f the
'week fhe management is exhibiting a
reel of 'pictures Showing the paraita of
the firemen's convention. The event in
moving pictures is .just as interesting as
t'he parade itself and many in the audi
ences are recognizing their friends.
How many times a day do you com
mend! Hew many times during a day
do you find fault?
The man who travels on bis cheek
ought to have a pretty strong face.

Mastery of Music
The mastery of music never just
"came naturally" to any human being.
The world has never known a more in
dustrioua worker than the illustrious
. Franz Schuibert. Yet, if to any one in
the world music "eaine naturally," it
seemed to come to him. When the
school principal asked his harmony
teacher how young Franz Schubert was
progressing, the teacher said: "He is
' a wonder. Whenever I explain any
thing new to him he always seems al
-1 ready to know it. He must have re
' ceived his knowledge straight from
' heaven." Yet, in spite of such superb
1 gifts, there was never a harder worker
1 than he. And d,on't you think that
we, with our lesser gifts, should follow
his example? If he, with all his hea\ •
en-sent genius, could not succeed with
• out strenuous daily labor, how can we
hope to accomplish anything worth
, while without ceaseless, patient ami
r conscientious toil?— Woman's World.
Pay as you go is an excellent motto
! unless you have no baggage; then it':
pay as you come.
