There are many men who wear their
hats practically all the time when
awake, and are blessed with a heavy
shock of hair; yet it the scalps of
these same men once became Infested
with dandruff germs, the parasites
would multiply all the quicker for lack
of air. Baldness would ensue as the
final result. Xewbro's Herplclde kills
these germs and stimulates unhealthy
hair to abundant growth. Herpicide

the ball. The Moline boys braced up

TO FIGHT PALMER
WITH A LAME LEG
Tommy Burns Heavyweight Favorite
for Tonight's Battle for World's
London, Feb. 10. Tommy Burns, the
American heavyweight pugilist, who
will meet Jack Palmer of Xewcastle
tonight for the heavyweight champion
ship, was forced to forego a part of
his usual training during the past week
on account of a severe cold and a
strained tendon in the right foot, bin
he is" confident of his ability to make
short work of his opponent.
The American is a strong favorite
in the betting. Even the north coun
trymen, who are noted for the way in
which they will back an Englishman
against a foreign tighter, are asking
long odds before laying their money.
They have offered, however, to place
HALL IX "THE THREE OF US" AT
$5,000 at 2 to 1 that Palmer will stay
six rounds. HuriUi' backers have not
taken this bet, but Darns, neverthe
less, believes that the flu; lit will not
last longer ;h:m that.
Palmer is considered a somewhat
better fighter than Gunner Moir,
whom Rums put away in 10 rounds,
but has a ivputr.tiou for hitting low,
it being on :i!i alleged foul blow that
.Moir was given the derision over him
when they last met.

Makes Role a Success. Jennie La
Monte, the well known and popular
character actress who conies to the
Illinois theater next Wednesday, Feb.
12. as a memiier of "The Threp of
the pronounced successes of her ca-
leer. Her impersonation won the ad
miration not only of playgoers, but
the members of her own profession as
well, during the long run of the piece
in New York, and she found herself
quite overwhelmed with ' compliments
from all sides. One of the most en
thusiastic of her admirers was Lillian
Russell," who came several times to
see the performance, declaring tha
Miss La Monte s portrayal was the
most natural and humorous piece of
ehaiacter acting that fche had seen in
many a year. Moreover, Miss Russell
declared that Miss La Monte's Irish
cook was an exact replica of the real
Irish cook in the Russell household.
The real Irish, cook was told of the
rt-scimb lance and Miss Russell, in a
spirit of fun, tent' her to see the play.
Upon her return from the perform-
mce Miss Russell asked her if she did
not find the likeness striking. "Not a
bit like it!" declared the cook with
some heat; "That play actress was no
more like me than I'm like you. But
do you know. Miss Russell, she was
the exact' image of me twin sister,
who was a, disgrace to the family!"
