The conference will first determine whether the national committee is em powered to make such a change, or whether it shall be necessary to call a special national, convention to un dertake it.

WHEREAS IN OTHER CITIES $3 HAS BEEN PRICE TO WITNESS GREAT ATTRACTION. Charlets L. Hertzman, representing II. H. Frazee's all-star production of "Fine Feathers." arrived m Pensa.onla. Friday to consult with Sidney P. in regard to the coming engagement of that attraction in this city on Thurs day, Dec 18. One important conces sion made by Mr. Hertzman was to a scale of prices not to exceed $2 on the entire lower floor. In many ,of the cities through the south "Fine Feathers' is not only charging $3.00, but filling' the houses to the full ca pacity at that scale. "When one con siders that the cast of "Fine Feathers" includes Robert Edeson, Wilton Lack aye, Max Figman, Rose Coghlan.Lolita Robertson and Lydia Dickson a sex tette of stars either one of who could easily fill the opera house at $2.00. Mr. Levy's success in securing this all-star combination for practically the same scale of prices charged for a single star Is a feather in :iis cap. Talking over this matter, Mr. Hertz man said: "J was sitting in Mr. Frazee's office at the Longacre theatre. New York, when Mr. Levy was in the big town. He called- on Mr. Frazee. told him he had assumed the management of the Pensacola opera house, and asked him for a date for 'Fine Feathers. Al though Mr. Frazee had organized three ordinary (companies to present this j play in the smaller cities between At- j lanta and New Orleans, he was so well impressed with Mr. Levy's argu-! ment for Pensacola, that Mr. Frazee added another week to his southern 1-1 o 11 cr 4- n r AfwotilTcf inn omit ing Mr. Levy one night in that week!?11' with a performance of 'Fine for Pensacola.

No One Remedy to Cure All Human Troubles Has Yet Been Found. The one idea man is usually a dan gerous man, especially in medicines. Time was when bitter roots and herbs were used a cure-alls. Every disease was treated by giving tonic. Then came Allopathy, with calomel and quinine, and every sick person got calomel and quinine and many morphine. Next came the Homeopath, with his medicated sugar; the Eclectic; the Christian Scientist; the Healer; the Osteopath; the Vegetable Diet man, etc, etc All of the different cults based upon a good idea but were carried too far. Because a particular drug or treatment would cure one disease it was prescribed for every condition. When the X-Ray was discovered it was heralded as a Cure-all. Soon X-Ray instruments E?rvr:rr up V, .t the country. Some doctor with a small knowledge of medicine would buy" an X-Ray machine and with it treat every disease in the catalogue. But the X-Ray craze soon died out. The X-Ray was soon put into Its place, a valuable assistant to surgeon in lo t-eating bullets and other foreign bod ies, in fractured bones, etc. But the only diseases which are now treated with the X-Ray are certain skin dis eases. Next came the surgeon with his knife, cutting out the Appendix or any other unruly organ, mutilating many and curing few. Radium was discovered. It was a rare substance and a great curiosits. When it was discovered it was heralded as a cure all, but it has been used practically none in medicine. The trouble with all these cures has been that they were "one idea cirres." The great cures that have been made by the German -American Doctors who have their institute located in the Thieeen building, are all made by us ing the German system of treatment, uniting all the systems and using the remedy that is indicated in that par ticular case, whether it is Allopathic, Homeopathic, Electic or "what. No two diseases can be treated alike. A med icine must be made to fit each partic ular case. That is why these Doctors always get such good results; they compound their medicine for each particular case. j German -American Medical institute Thiesen Bldg. Pensaco'a, Fla, .
