At the Majestic The Majestic the
ater, Chicago, for the week of Oct
19 offers a splendid vaudeville pro
gram, being what is usually known as
an "all star bill." The, principal head
. liner will be Ezra Kendall, the famous
humorist, who ha3 delighted audi
encos in all Darts of the siobe. For
the last four or five seasons Mr. Ken
dall has been starring in the dramatic
houses, so his plans for producing a
; new comedy were abandoned and he
now shines as one of the brightest
stars in vaudeville. He has an orig
inal line of comedy talk, for which
he is justly noted, and in the east
where he has been appearing for sev
cral weeks it is said he has . scored
the greatest hit of his long and sup
cessful career. A European importa
tion seen here for the first time will
be M'lle De Dio, the famous Parisian
dancer in , her sensational triumph
"Terpsichore's Dream," with sll its
is typically a French youag vroman
having the beauty and youth, and the
i vivacity that is supposed to be the
! magnet for charming everyone who
! comes into contact with her. Still an
other special vaudeville feature will
be Homer Lind, late baritone with the
Henry W. Savage's "Parsifal" company
and the Metropolitan Opera company,
supported by his own company in tne
musical classic entitled "The Opera
Singer." This engagement of mis
famous singer is considered one of the
most important ever. Known in the
history of vaudeville. Merian's dogs,
30 of them, present a pantomime
playlet called "A Vision of Salome."
It is a very novel production, having
required over two years' training of
the animals in order to achieve per
fection. Hyman Meyer has a clevei
number which is called "The Man at
the Piano," and Foy and Clark will
offer their comedy act called "In the
Spring of Youth." Peter Donald and
Meta Carson will be amusing in their
sketch called "Alex McLean's Dream
and the Frederick Musical trio have
a smart instrumental musical act.
There are half a dozen other expert
and skilled people on the bill, which
is one of the best of the kind ever
offered anywhere. : -

When a medicine eff3cts a cure in
98 per cent of cases, . and , when we
cner that medicine on our own per
sona', guarantee that it will cost the
us-er nothing if it does not cure
catarrh, it is only reasonable that peo-
p!-' cl ould believe us, or at least put
; r ciami to a practical test wneu
wi' take all the risk. Those are facts
which we want the people of Rock
Isiand to substantiate. Wo want them
to try Rexall Mucu-Tone. a medicine
prepared from a prescription of a phy
sician whose specialty was catarrh
ard who has a record of 30 years of
cures to his credit.
We tell more bottles and receive
more good reports about Rexall Mucu
Tone than we do of all other catarrh
rimedier sold in our store, and i; more
ptople enly knew what a thoroughly
dependable remedy Rexall Mucu-Tone Jthe Massacre of whites by Indians-
is, it would be the only catarrh medi-lthe Koidup of the Denver Flyer the
cine ve would have any demand for.
Rexall Mucu-Tone is' quickly ab
sorbed and carried to the blood until
it thoroughly disinfects and cieanses
the ertire mucous membraneou3 tract,
destroys and removes the parasites
which injure and destrov the mem
lumecus tissues, soothes and heals
the iTitP tion and soreness, stops the
mucous discharge, anl builds up
strong, healthy tissue, relieves the
b!c-od and system of diseased matter,
stimulates the. muco-ceils. aids diges
tion and improves nutrition until the
vhcle Lcdy vibrates w ith healthy
activity. ' In a comparatively short
t-.:re there is a most noticeable, gain
in weight, strength, goo.l color and
feeling of buoyancy.
We urge you to try Mucu-Tone, be
ginnitg u treatment today. At any
time you are not satisfied, simply
come und tell us, and we will quickly
return your money without question
or quibble. We have Rexall Mucu
Tone in two sizes, 50 cents and $1.
