Town talk theatrically considered is centered upon the coming engage ment of Henry Miller's company in "The Geat Divide" which is an nounced for Tuesday, January 7. at Rhelton's theatre, with tills notable drama by William Vaughn Moody. Mr Miller has reached the zenith of his career as a producing mana ger. Never has an American play by an American author won such in stant recognition at the hands of the most discriminating dramatic re viewers. "The long awaited 'great American play,' " many critics have termed it. The unquestioned power and intense human appeal of this masterpiece of dramatic literature, as well as the intelligent and highly artistic presentation and production, as directed by the past master of stage craftsmanship, Henry Miller, easilj explains the phenomenal vogue this piece has attained. During the two seasons engagement at the Princess and Daily's theatres, New York, it was only possible to procure seats by buying them weeks in ad vance or procuring them at advanced prices from speculators. Over a half a million people saw this play in New York city alone during the five hundred performances. "The Great I Divide" will be given here by a su perb company with all the wealth of scenic equipment and the com plete production precisely as pre sented during the metropolitan en gagement. Zeke, the Country Boy. "Zeke, the Country Boy," the new rural comedy drama which will hold the stage of the Shelton opera house January fi, promises well. Having a distinctly outlined plot and a clear development is the first strong point in its favor, and the arJ rangement of the incidents in a na tural order supports this so well that one is only amused by the possible ; extravagance of some of them. The ; lines are bright, the situations un- j strained, and the climaxes are nat- j u'al. The acting is said to be e,v«.n j and tT£- different members of the c make every scene as tel 1 ossible. In a word, the play liich sets people talking and makes them tell their friends to go Lind see it. HKMOVK THK CAl'SK. How to Itvmeily Much of tin· Suffer· The only way to cure the attacks | if indigestion that are so common j m Waxahachle is by using Mi-o-na stomach tablets. They remove the ■ause of indigestion, strengthen the muscles of the stomach and bowels, ind restore the whole digestive sys tem to health and strength. When the stomach Is weak there is indigestion, flatulence, dizziness, headaches, sleeplessness and many nher disagreeable symptoms.

Grafton at Waxahachie with his mo ther and Mrs. Grafton at Rockett with her parents.—Leonard Graphic G»ve It Up. A friend of the writer recently made application for a public appointment in a small Scottish town, and, thinking that his chances of success would lie greater by a little Judicious canvass ing, he resolved to call upon a few of the town councilors, in whose hands the appointment lay. Of the civic dig nitaries' po^ltlou in private 1 ift? he knew nothing. Journeying to the town in question, he hired a cab at the rail way station and requested the Jehu to take him to Councilor Bisset's, the treasurer. The councilor was found In his blacksmith's shop shoeing a horse. "I'll see somebody of more impor tance than this, anyhow," said the can didate to himself, and, turning to the driver, he said. "Drive me to Councilor Mainland's office." The cabman thereupon drove him to the local Joiner's shop. This was worse even than the smithy, and in defpair lie ejaculated: "Drive me to Councilor Gray's." "1 am Councilor Gray, sir," replied the cabman. The answer staggered the candidate. He quietly paid his fare and disap peared, resolved to leave his fate in their hands without prejudicing them in any way in his favor. — London Standard. When Life Was Little Valued. The capital offenses which the old Kngllsii law recognized as punish able by death did not keep down crime, and with the abolition of the death penalty for all crimes but murder crime in England, as well as every where else all over the world where the death penalty has been modified, lessened markedly, notes the Boston Traveler. Edmond Burke said that he could in his time obtain the assent of the house of commons to any bill that car ried the death punishment. A man's life was not very valuable In those strenuous days. If he scratch ed his name on Westminster bridge, if lie wore a wig or false mustache or any other disguise on a public road. If he cut down a young tree, if he stole property worth more than $1.1'Γ>. If he had been transported for crime and re turned a day ahead of the expiration of his term of punishment, if he wrote a threatening letter. If hi· stole a hide from a tanner's, for any and all of these things and for 200 more than these lie was hanged by the neck until he was dead. Wouldn't Tip It A Toronto man who visited England last euminer appears to think that country the champion tip taker, lit· says: "Well, I had tipped every man from the swell gent who seemed to own the house of commons down to the hireling who gummed the wrong labels on my luggage, and I went into the waiting room on the landing stage at Liverpool to wash my hands of ev erything English, and what do you think stared me in the face when I had fin ished?

To Whom It May Concern: Of late there has been a good deal of discussion in Waxahachie in re j gard to advertised medicines and their value—the papers are full of them. I We want to say to every man, woman and child in Waxahachie that we believe the most valuable prep aration of cod liver oil—the best tonic reconstructor, healh restorer and strength creator—we have ever sold in our store is Vinol. Vinol is not a patent mgiti. iin,·, j|, contains no injurious drugs, but It actually does contain all of the med icinal, curative elements taken from fresh cods' livers, without a drop of the useless oil to upset the ".;uiuacK and retard its work, and tonic iron added. Vinol Is recognized throughout the world as the greatest strength creator for old people, weak, sickly women and children, nursing moth ers. and after a severe sickness. Vinol cures hacking, chronic colds, bronchitis, and all throat and lung troubles. We ask the people of Waxahachie to try Vinol on our of fer to return money of it falls. Hood & Purlin, Druggists.
