FRANK BACONE ALLS
-iOLD STAE DAYS Character Actor at Belasco Theater Grows Reminiscent. By THE PLAYGOE. Stage productions or today are beautiful, aren't they? Frank Bacon, one of America's greatest character men, put the question to me in his dressing room at the Belasco yester day afternoon during the Intermission between the first and second acts. Mr. Bacon. dressed in the style of frayed respectibility ot the part of "Old Primrose," in "The Cinderella Man" at the Belasco and using the same soft tones which bring lumps into the throats of his audiences. even while they laugh, contrasted the theater to day with the days wnen Booth and Barrett were favorited. "I remember back about thirty years go when a tour did not mean a suc cession of Pullmans, fine hotels and big salaries, but journeys on horse back, warehouses and barns for thea ters with an occasional red letter day when we were enabled to play a town hall. We used to play out through Arizona and Texas among the army posts when a show only reached the town about once a month, and in many instances I have ridden from forty to fifty miles in an old coach to make the next town. "But the people were legion. Every one attended the performances and without elaborate scenery. lighting effects, and in a number or Instances suitable costumes, we received just as much applause as you hear out front today. It was hard work then, but I hlieve I'd like just a little more of it. The actor was supreme then, with scenery and effects taking second place. "Tet, I don't believe that as a whole the stage then could compare with today. We had some good old actors. artists whose work will live forever, but the present day crop. with the advantage of having men like Belasco and Griffith. have gone just a step further toward the ulti n-Ate perfection of the drama.

A BALTIMORE LADY THROWNFROM CAR Mrs. Reilly Relates How Her Stomach Was in a Dread ful Condition. A great specialist at one time said: "Stomach trouble is the curse of the American people." Nine out of every ten people we meet suffer from stom ach trouble in some form. A chain is only as strong as its weakest link, and MRS. WILLIAM REILLY. the weak link with us seems to be the stomach: in other words. you cannot he a well man or woman with a dis eased stomach. Plant Juice, the new herbal stomach remedy, being manu factured from medicinal herbs and plants, roots, barks, berries and fibers. stands without a rival as a remedy for the Ills of the stomach. It relieves in digestion and dyspepsia, often with the first dose. The following signed statement from Mrs. William Reilly. who resides at 1221 Lake street. who moved to Pitts burgh from Baltimore over ten years ago, was recently received, which reads: 'About a year ago I met with an accident, being thrown from a car. and which caused me to become a nervous wreck. My stomach was in a dreadful condition and I could not keep anything solid on it. as it would ferment and cause gas, and the most awful distress I had pains around my heart and all over my body, never could get any sleep at night and kept getting weaker and weakier every day. I tried every known remedy and all kinds of treatments, but none of them seemed to help me in the least, until moy son bought a bottle of Plant Juice for me and insisted that I try it, which Sdid. I am now glad to state that it mrp letel y relieved the awful misery I who in. toned up my nervous system; and m'y stomach is in such good con dition tlh.t .1 can eat any kind of food without didtress. I have no more aches and pains, sleep well at night and will recommend Plant Juice as a great medicine to build up the sys tem."~ The Plant Juice Man is at the Peo ple's Drug Store, corner 7th and E Sta. N, W., where he is daily meeting the local public, and introducing and explaining the merits of this remedy.
