origin of the play back in tho thir

scope and fame till in 1900 it
was given from May to October and
was witnessed by 75.000 Americans
alone. The beginning of its regular
production dates from tho middle of
the Seventeenth century, when the
people of Ober-Ammergau wereridded
of a fearful plague in an apparently
miraculous manner. The play is
given in gratitude for the deliverance
and has now become the life work of
those who take the main parts as well
as the principal business of tho village.
The original play occupied several
hours for its completion, and of course
only extracts were given last evening.
The first one showed the appearance
of tbe star in the east which led the
shepherds to the manger wherein the
Christ child. 'was found. Next fol
lowed scones at the baptism of the in
fant, the flight from .Jsrael. and on to
tbo last supper, tho trial, the cruci
fixion, and finally the ascension. The
action throughout is shown to be
strikingly real and the actors remark
ably adapted to their parts.

Ldko all other organs of the body, the heart is controlled and
regulated in its action by the nervous system. So absolute is thi3
nervous control of the heart, and so readily does it respond to im
pulses of the mind, that its pulsations are fast or slow, strong or
weak, according to the emotions that are in control. Fear,
anger, sorrow, worry, anxiety, care, low spirits and mental or
bodily overwork have a very depressing effect on the heart nerves.
Those persons whose nerves are so weak or so exhausted that the
heart's action is disturbed on every slight occasion, or who are irri

and lasting relief in Dr. Miles' Nervine.
