years," says John Edgar, of

to be around but constantly suf

hear of and at last was told to
try Chamberlain's Pain Balm,

relieved and in a short time cured

One of the attractions in a New
Orleans theater this week is a
decided novelty, just from the
London musio halls. It is the act
of Mile- Chester's $10,000 statue
dog. The animal is a beautiful
snow white setter, so traintd that
he poses in living picture style,
under a strong lime light, against
a dark background. The poses
resemble statuary, and are said
to be perfect in every way.
Nothing of the sort haa ever been
put on the stage beforp. ,

berlain's Cough Remedy, they
lost none of their plumpness and
