; "Paid in Full" at Grand Opera House.
The ' eighth week of the really as
tonishing engagement of Eugene Wal
ker's play' of 20th century American
life, CPaid . In .Full." Is now current
at the Grand opera house, Chicago,
and the third month of the fun starts
immediately. When "Paid In Full"
opened on May 10 last in Chicago the
following competing attractions start
ed against it; some of them a week
later: Powers theater, "Twenty Days
In the Shade;" Garrick 'theater, "The
Cay: White Way;" Colonial theater,
Joe Weber's "Merry Widow;" Mc
VicUcr's theater, "Brewster's Mil
lions;" "Illinois theater, "Miss Hook
of Holland;" Studebaker theater, Elsie
Janis In "The Hoyden." Not one of
these attractions la now playing In
Chicago, In1 fact one or "two others
have, come and gone, among them
"The Witching Hour" - and .Crystal
Heme at Powers theater, and still
"Paid In Full" runs on. This result
Is simply an exemplification - of the
Darwinian theory of the survival of
the fittest "Paid in Full'; has proven
itself to be the fittest, strongest, most
' potent attraction of ,the summer sea
Its fitness, potency and power have
also been demonstrated in the me
tropolis of the east, where it has been
playing since last February at the As-
tor theater and where, like a gladia
tor of old, it has defeated every op
ponent that has matched strength
with it. The wonderful attractiveness
of Mr. Walker's play to all classes
and conditions of people,, in. the east
as well as in the west, is due-to the
fact: that it is truly and without 'dis
tortion or exaggeration obeys Shakes
peare's injunction and "holds a mirror
up to nature" not an imaginative or
poetical nature, but real, true human
nature the -seething, struggling,
heartless, erring," loving, many-sided
nature of today. , - The author has
made no' effort to create "types" or to
introduce unnecessary "action." , He
has simply placed a lot of real people
in natural situations, and :. faithfully
reproduced their lives. ; Incidentally
and without preaching, he shows in
all its danger, the great American evil,
extravagance' "Paid "in Full" is a
lesson to anyone, who is tempted , to
live beyond his means.; '- '
Big Circus Comes Soon. The Bar-
num & Bailey greatest shown on earth
will exhibit in Rock Island on July
10, giving two performances at the
usual hours, and once more presenting
a- grand street spectacle at 10 o'clock
in the morning, a feature whic'i for
four years this circus has emitted.
There is no question as to the supe
riority of this big show. For five gen-
erations it has set the pace that no
other show has been able to follow.
There Is no place on earth where it
bas - not pitched its mammoth tents.
Nobility has" applauded it, European
kings and Oriental' potentates have
admired it, and all America has long
recognized its position at the head of
all amusement enterprises. With the
advantage of its years of foreign travel
and with an agent in every large city
In the world,' it readily may be seen
why it controls the talent of the
world. It is the only circus of any
consequence that has ever' visited the
old world. ' It Is the only circus on
earth that is great enough to exhibit
in New York City, where for the past
many years it has. begun its annual
tours at the Madison Square garden.
The New York engagement this season
was one of more than usual brilliancy.
With entirely new equipment, an en
larged and more novel menagerie, and
a complete! new program of foreign
acts. the performances were, given; to
crowds that, filled the great amphithe
ater night1 after night for many weeks.
The new thriller, "Autos That Pass in
the Air ". which is the climax of the
great program, was voted the most
sensational exhibition of daring of all
times. Additional interest is felt in
the coming of the show to this city
because of the reinstatement of the
street parade. It will be nothing like
those of the past. All the wonders of
the world have been assembled in this
pageant, and the money it cost passes
the million mark. In the parade alone
1,500 people and 100 horses are util
ized. , " ; " "-
, For a Sprained Ankle.
As usually treated, a sprained ankle
will disable the injured person for a
month or more, but by applying
Chamberlain 'a Liniment and observ
ing .the directions with each bottle
faithfully, a cure may be effected in
many , cases in less than one week's
time. This' liniment 1s a most remark
able preparation. Try; it for a sprain
or bruise, or when laid up with chron
ic or museular rheumatism, and you
are certain to be delighted with the
prompt relief which, it affords. For

holic beverages always results in a

and when I wish,", but the poor fel
low is now devoid of the power to act
at the proper time and in the right
way it's too late, the craving, has se
cured a firm hold and because of the
diseased nervous system he has not
the ability for sustained effort. The
result we all know.
