Will be Next Attraction nt Opera
House, Here Next Tuesday.
What will undoubtedly prove the
greatest sensation the season has
brought forth will be the appearance
in this city of the triumphant success
of "The Thief which ran for two
solid years at the Lyceum Theatre,
This will be the first time that "The
Thief" is piesentcd here and the op
portunity to see one of the world's
greatest master-pieces in dramatic
writing should not be missed. The
critics of two continents have exhaust
ed themselves trying adequately to de
scribe this Intense, gripping, over
whelming drama, so full of that inde
scribable something that pierces the
heart with its appeal. For want of a
better term this something is called
human interest. "The Thief" Is full
to overflowing with human Interest.
It throbs In every line and holds the
spectator from start to finish.
'Tin? Thief" comes to tho opera
notice next Tuesday, Der ember 12th,
prices 50c, 70c, $1.00 and a few at
$1.50. Seats now on sale at Palmet

Lightning Kills Few.
In 1906 lightning killed only 1GH
people in this whole country. One's
chances of death by lightning are less
than two In a million. The 'banco of
death from liver, kidney or stomach
trouble is vastly greater, but not if
Electric IBtters be used, as Hoheit
Madsen, of West Burlington, la., prov
ed. Four doltors gave him up after
eight months of suffering from viru
lent liver trouble and yellow jaun
dlre. lie was then completely cured
by Electric Bitters. They're tho best
stomach, liver, nerve and kidney rem
edy and blood purifier on earth. Only
