Taft, who is ill at a local hotel, tonight was announced by the attending lihysician as "not bo good as yesterday." While the attendant did not consider the situation dangerous, ho thought quietness advisable and forbad callers. This is the first day since Mr. Taft was stricken with intestinal indigestion that the physician's report has been unfavorable. AT THE ORPHEUM When the Harris & Proy players announced a complete change of program for the last three days of the week they certainly made good in evory sensei of the word. In Panama, their latest offering proved last night to bo just what they claimed for it, a veritable cyclone of laughter and song.. Every move of the comedians Murphy and Sweeny, was a signal for a good hearty laugh. Mr. Kavanaugh as Percy Doolittle was all that the part required and proved a great foil for the Irish comics. The song numbers by different members of the company were far above the average und brought forth many rounds of applause. Miss Mauley's rendition of "I'm Hearln' From. Erin," is well deserving of special mention. "Oh, Johnnie Oh," by Miss Dotollo was one of the hits of "the evening, while "Alaska," sung by Miss Wltcher, appoals to every one in tho house. The picture program is an exceptional one. The big five reel feature, "His Best Girl," held the audience spell bound from start to finish. The program from rise to fall of the curtain is without a doubt the best yet put on at this popular playhouse. TONIGHT "llyrt^'^'CoiHifiiy' Featuring Rosemary Theby and Harry Myers.
