A Kan Tot Cp a Job to Make Every Wo.
man In the Theatre Take Off Her Hat.
The theatre was crowded. The enruin
had just risen. Jewels flashed, gay plumes
on wondrous headdresses fluttered in the
heated air, costly fans waved slowly to and
fro, and the fashionable audience turned
its eyes and opera glasses toward the stage
and settled into the hush of expectation
that precedes the opening of the play,
which the experienced stage manager has
waited considerately for all the late comers
to be seated before the bell taps for the
curtain to rise.
In a conspicuous location about half way
between the orchestra and the front seats
of the parquet circle were three ladies who
had come in unattended about five minutes
before. They were noticeable for the wide,
flaring, umbrageous hats they wore. Di
rectly behind them sat a nervous looking,
despairing man,-who was making wild
but fruitless efforts to see the stage. The
wide hats with their wealth of tropical
bird foliage hid everything he wanted to
see" from his view. "In vain he wrigsled
and squirmed and craned his neck from
side to side. The hAt3 were too lare, too
close together and too richly upholstered.
Apparently niuoiisdeus ibt lie was at
tracting the attention of eterybody in his
neighborhood uuU bruising iie ladies ia
frout of htm into uni-Wut prominence,
he persevered till souQi.U of i:i suj pressed
Jaughter rrere mrd on nil sides of him.
Then lie settled Limseli back in his chair
with a weary bigh, but the next Moment
took advantage of a lull in the performance
on the stage to lean forward an.l address
one of the ladies the one who sat in the
''Madam," he said in a loud whisper, "I
b'g pardon, but it is utterly impossible for
me to see through your hat, and the Lord
made me too small to see over it. If you
will kindly remove it you will make a
wretched man happy for a whole evening."
The forty or fifty persons who were look
ing on saw the lady remove her hat at once,
tnrn around, and smilingly leg his pardon.
They saw the othef two ladies takeoff their
hats also, and the example hecame iustant
ly contagious. Ten or a tloaen other enor
mous hats came off in the next half min
ute, much to the relief of the sufferers di
rectly behind them. Then the star of the
evening stepped on the sUige and the atten
tion of the audience was attracted to the
The details of this pleasing little incident
are given in full for the purpose of ex
plaining to those who witnessed it that the
whole affair was a put up job.
The lady whom that man addressed was
his wife, and the other two were his sisters.

The dictionery says, "a balsam is a
thick, pure, aromatic substance flowing

threat and lungs is the only cough medi

of E emp'i Balsam and notice what a pure,
thick preparation it is. If you cough

There is no danger of a cold resulting
in pneumonia when Chamberlain's Cough
remedy is used as directed "for a severe
cold." It effectually counteracts and
arrests any tendency of a cold to result
in pneumonia. This fact was fully prov
en in thousands of cases during the epis
demic of influecza last winter. For sale
