A Quotation from one recent let ter: "I have been taking Hood's S&r saparllla and Peptiron Pills as a course of medicine and find this com bination has worked like a charm. They told me I had neuralgia, and certainly I was in a very low and discouraging state of health. I suf fered extremely with nervousness and had neuralgia pains so I could not sleep nights. "Those nervous spells were awful! "I heard about taking Hood's Sax sap&rllla and Peptiron Ellis—one be fore meals, the other after—the sug gestion struck me favorably so that I have taken the medicines carefully and faithfully with most pleasing re sults. "It is a long time now since I have had one of thoso severe nervous spells. I can do a good day's house work, can work in my garden and walk a mile." Mrs. Fred J. Week ley, Bagdad, Fla.

IOWA PEOPLE LONG LIVED November Death Report Shows That of 1,651, Thirty Per Cent Had Lived Past AI lotted Age. The November report of th« Iowa state board of liealth contains much that, is interesting. The secretary re ports upon 1,651 deaths for the whole state. It is good to note that almost 30 per cent of the whole number had passed the age allotted to man, showing that people live long in Iowa, where people live well and live ra tionally and enjoy a climate that favors longevity. There were too many infant deatha, but much good work is being done in the cause of saving the little children.

The play is laid in the town of Johnsburg, somewhere in New Eng land. George M. Cohan is a graduate of the vaudeville stage and the odor of it clings to whatever he produces in the line of entertainment. Aa a writ er of pIAys composed solely with the Idea of amusing, he stands high in the appreciation of the theater-going pub lic, as instance "Little Johnny Jones" and the laughi-compelllng "Seren Keys to Raldpate." Cohan's bank account has been swelled- just so much by every chuckle drawn from those who pay to witness the antics of the ae tors who Impersonate the characters given to us aa creations of the nimble brain of the playwright, and the whole string of them are remembered long after more, sedate Impersonal tlons have passed into the fog of the used-to-be. Keokuk warmed to "Sev en Keys to Baldpate" and it will long remember "Hit-the-Trail Holliday," which was presnted at the Grand Opera house last night. It was all that's Cohanestiue—gives no time for sober reflection it is designed pure ly for laughing purposes, being a comedy of such dizzy speed and up roarious mirth that more than one of its four acts may be characterized as downright farce. "Hit-the-Trail" Hol liday" Introduces a number of quaint countryfolk characters into whose midst comes Billy Holliday, the best bartender in all New Tork City, who, in his new environment takes sides with the prohibition party and or ganizes a temperance campaign that puts the "boozers" to rest. In the first act Mr. Cohan repro duces with photographic exactness the interior of a barbershop in the basement of a small-town hotel. "Among those present" is the fault lessly tailored and fine-mannered young barkeeper, Holliday, "just from N' Tork." Owing to a suddenly formed and well-founded dlslik* for his emplcnyer-to^be, Holliday decides to cast his fortunes with the proprie tor of a rival and temperance hotel So the second act finds the barkeeper, who has mads a speech for prohibl tion, (boosting and selling a "nearly beer" product and beloved as the Idol of the town also, he is in demand on all sides as a temperance lecturer. All of which is unusual and stunning to Billy Holliday—but he plays the part with such success that within a fortnight he has driven the brewery out of business, created a demand for the newfangled temperance beverage, which looks like real beer but lacks the "punch", and marries the lovely daughter of the leading minister.' Pretty swift for a two weeks' cam paign, isn't it? Hit-the-Trail Holliday is laughable —that's all. Not by any stretch of the imagination can it be called a tem perance lesson. Thpse who recall Hoyt's "A Temperance Town" may recognize some parallel in treatment of the "anti-drink" question as pre sented in "Hit-the-Trafl Holliday", but the Cohan farce is much to be preferred both in construction and ap peal to probability. Frank Otto as Billy Holliday was the center of the storm on the stage. He Is a most nimble young man and his experience in vaudeville has given him an assurance that fits well the character he assumes. The oth er members of the company took full advantage of every line and opportun ity to bring out the strdng points of the play and seemed to enjoy them selves aa much as did the people in front.
