GUARANTEED LIQUOR CURE.
No Detention from Work or Loss of
Time Desire for Drink De
stroyed by Orrine.
When one of our most reliable drug
gists makes a positive statement that
he will guarantee to cure the liquor
habit if Orrine is used in accordance
with directions or refund the money, it
shows his great faith in the treatment.
It is in this way that Orrine is sold by
the leading druggist in nearly every
city and town. In every box is a reg
istered guarantee which entitles you
to a refund of your money if Orrine
fails to effect a cure.
No other cure for the liquor habit
has been sold in this way and the re
markable guarantee shows how far
superior Orrine is to the ordinary san
itarium or home treatment. There is
no detention from work or loss of time
when Orrine is used. It destroys the
desire for liquor, so that the drink is
not missed, also cures the deranged
stomach, weakened nerves, and other
ill effects of excessive drinking, re
storing the patient to perfect health
Orrine is prepared in two forms. No.

policemen to enforce the automobile
ordinance pertaining to the numbering
of the machines and the speed limit as
well. Several autos are being driven
around the city streets at a pace which
is dangerous to pedestrians. Several
machines have also been discovered

council has made many improvements
this year which have cost considerable
money is evident from the remark
made by Mayor Olson Monday evening
at the council meeting. After the
bridge committee had reported favor
ably upon repairing the Rock river
bridge, the city executive head said:
We will have to call a halt, gentle
men. Improvements have cost consid

Leave Couqh Drops Out. During
one of the performances at the Man
hattan theater, in New York, where
"Before and After" enjoyed an uninter
rupted run of 150 nights, one enthusi
astic spectator foolishly endeavored to
masticate a cough drop and laugh at
the same time. He laughed himself
practically into hysteria, and suddenly
those near him discovered that he was
strangling, the candy having found its
way into Ills windpipe. Dr. C. A. Find

whose practiced eye had noted the fact
that the instruments exhibited and
used on the stage were bona fide and

seized a sponge forceps found among
the instruments used by Dr. Page (Mr.
Ditrichstein) and extracted the cough
drop from the now half-unconscious
sufferer, who had been hastily carried
to an outer office. The man. who re
fused to give his name, recovered in
time to enjoy the last act of the play,
missing the second entirely; but dur
ing that last act he carefully refrained
from dallying with any cough drops or
other extraneous substances. Ixical
theater goers who contemplate seeing
this brilliant and snarklinc laaiehter
play at the Grand opera house Thurs
day evening, Oct. 4. are warned to leave
cough drops behind.

Kearney Was Funny. John L. Kear
ney, who has taken Richard Carle s
place in "The Mayor of Tokio," may
not be quite as funny as the man he
succeeded, but he was good enough to
keep a good sized audience at the Illi
nois entertained last evening. The role
is an exceptionally hard one to fill ac
ceptably when all things are consider
ed. The company may not be quite as
large as that Mr. Carle himself carried,
but it was large enough, talented
enough and sufficiently well drilled to
give general satisfaction. The only
weak spot was in the work, of James
Darling as mayor of Tokio, and in time
this will be remedied. Mr. Darling
joined the company Monday and the
performance last night was but the
second in which he had appeared.
Therefore, any shortcomings he may
have manifested will be overlooked.
