terprets the lole of an educated full

which cannot fail to grip the interest
of all theater goers. When they re
fuse "Strongheart" 'the hand of their
sister because he is an Indian, he
says: "You do well to remind me that
I am an Indian. I have the greatest
claim I am the American. You have

scribed as being' incomparable. She
brings a tense reality to her Imper

The first symptom of Contagious Blood Poison is usually a little sore or ulcer,
which is quickly followed by a red rash on the skin, swollen glands in the
groin, falling hair, ulcerated mouth and throat, and often copper colored
splotches on different parts of the body. - As the blood becomes more fully
contaminated with the poison, pustular eruptions and sores break out on.

finger nails drop off. Then the sufferers find themselves diseased from head
to foot with this humiliating, vile and destructive poison. No other disease
is so highly contagious ; many an innocent person" has been inoculated by
handling the clothing or using the toilet articles of an infected, person.v
