Patrons who attend the picture shows at the Orpheum wonder and make remarks about how so many and so good pictures are obtained by the management in the two and three-reel features which are run about every night and changed every night. But when they have talked with the manager and when he lets them into the secrets of it, they realize that it is not by sitting right down and letting things, drift aimlessly, but it is by using some of the "gray matter" that everyone has more or less of (if they will use it), with plenty of energy to make it effective. All these things-combined is what gets and holds the crowds that patronize the Orpheum. The songs rendered by Finnerty and the music on violin and piano by Stein and Miss Gaudetto are acknowledged to be of a very high order. • - Cretonne and scrim curtain goods as low as 9 cents a yard at Wise, Smith & Co.'s, artford.

The following article from a recent issue of the Hartford Times shows the interest some of our readers take in timely articles published in The Press: Warning to Women. A daily reader of The Times sends the "Warning to Women" printed below with , the request to print it in The\Times, "for the sake of a long-suffering public." While written last fall at the close of the 'undress' season, it is very fitting to the present opening season of that character. The article was first printed in The Thompsonville Press: "The dress of the American women has left something to be desired for several years past, but never has it been so unblushingly scant as during the present summer. In spite of the expostulations of pulpit and press, hundreds of thousands of pure and modest women and girls appear unhesitatingly upon the public thoroughfares in attire which cannot but attract the disrespectful attention of the passerby. "We believe that the majority of women eschew the objectionable in dress, but there are many who claim they must be in fashion no matter how unseemly the fashions are. For their benefit we give several passages from an article on present-day styles by Dr. Edwin H. Lewis, appearing in the current issue of American Medicine. Dr. Lewis' warning is frank, perhaps unpleasant, but we believe it presents a phase of the subject not sufficiently emphasized heretofore, so quote from it in part. " 'The lengths to which many young and imprudent females have gone, in the effort to be up-to-date and chic, are dangerous in the extreme.' declares the doctor. 'And this is not alone because of the constant invitation to improper advances from the wolves in men's clothing who are ever seeking their prey, but also because of the possibility of inciting crimes by degenerates. We and every other experienced physician know that the risque styles of the present day have a psychological bearing on a good many susceptible mentalities.' "After pointing to the recent well-known case of the degenerate Schwartz and the letter he left on committing suicide, the physician continues: 'Happily most men are domniated by innate decency and the respect they feel for womankind. From such our daughters, sisters and wives have little to fear, no matter how they dress. But every medical man of large practice and experience knows only too well the fires kindled by the present dress of young, voluptuous females. There is no doubt that immodest dress is responsible for many a young girl's downfall and ruin. " 'I never came to a full realization of the prevalent abominations until one day last spring when I had to meet a friend at Forty-second street and Broadway. It was just after closing time for the big shops, and I saw a perfect avalanche of the girl employes. Even little girls of 13 or 14 were dressed in a way that was scandalous. Apparently none of them wore any petticoats, and their short, narrow outside skirts and tightly drawn bodices outlined every curve of hip and torso in the most reckless fashion. Also they were painted as if they had just stepped from the footlights.' "Is the picture which Dr. Lewis presents overdrawn? And will any gin or woman feel quite comfortable in the present-day scant skirt and bodice after reading his warning? We think not." "MR. BOB" AT THE MAJESTIC Amusing Play Recently Presented at the Industrial Exhibition of the High School to Be Given for the Benefit of the High School Athletic Association. ; _ Some of the members of the Enfield High school will present the two-act comedy, "Mr. Bob," an amusing play with several unusual cases of mistaken identity, in the Majestic theatre tomorrow evening, for the benefit cf the athletic association of the High school.

The Brussels will play the strong Woodbines of Hartford Saturday on the Alden avenue grounds at 3:30 p. m„ and a hot argument is being looked forward to as the Woodbines are the pick of the Hartford city teams.
