TROPICAL PLANTS FOR THE

Palms, Oleanders, Aspidistras, Cacti,

Washington, D. C., Dec. 3.—With a
little care, a number of tropical plaints
may be grown indoors, anil during the
winter they are u particularly attrac
tive addition to a bay window or con

proper attention and not permitted to

FRENCH REMEDY AIDS
France has been railed tlie nation

Billy Spencer, who appeared original

At the Orpheum
While all Harrisburg seems deeply
interest in the Orpbeuni's unique
head liner, Captain Sorcho, the cele
brated submarine engineer and his
deep sea divers, it must be remember
ed that he is supported by an array of
Keith hits that are as clever and di
verting as any bill that has been pre
sented there tlhis season. Not the least
of these attractions is the return of
pretty Dolly Connelly, a positive Or
pheum favorite, who" is here again in
new songs and who is also displaying
a wardrobe that is especially pleasing
the ladies. Whenever Miss Connellv
conies to Harrisburg she can be de
pended upon for bringing some new
and tuneful song hits, and this week is
no exception. Her biggest hit, or
rather her catdhiest song, is "When
You Wore a Tulip and I Wore a Rod
Rose." In it she is assisted by Bert
Rule, who acicompaniets her on the
piano for all her songs, but who joins
her iii singing this last number. Their
voices harmonize beautifully and at
the finish they do a little cuddling
scene that sends them off to a big
hand. .Miss Connelly is a pleasing sing
er, a graceful dancer, a magnetic art
ist, and her wardrobe is exquisite.
Comedy honors of the week go to Billy

J. H. Stanley and Michael Laneiolo
were walking along the lake shore,
when their attention was attracted by
some object struggling in the water.
At first they thought it was a man.
Both waded out into the lake to effeet a
rescue and found the cause of all the
commotion to be an eagle.
The bird fought the men and it was
with difficulty they finally took their
captive ashore. Then they discovered
that clinging t<J the left leg of the eagle
was a small steel trap, such as is used
by the farmers in catching rats. Stau

for the captive.
It is believed the eagle was lost in a
storm or possibly escaped from some
park or zoo and was caught in the trap
while seeking food.
