A large and successful advertiser says that when he first went into business he regarded newspaper advertising as an expense which was important, but not essential to success, but a little exper ience taught him to view regular and systematic advertising in the most wide circulated newspapers as an investment or as a necessary part of the capital put into his establishment. "Like any other safe investment," he says, "the news paper 'ad' brings in profits, and without It an enterprise falls short of its possl l btllttes." THEATRICAL. Laughter, ranging in degree from a ripple to a cyclone, is provoked by the Ray's Big Eastern "A Hot Old Time," which will be the attraction at the Grand tonight. The mirth it arouses is the result of a genuinely original and humorous story told with a vivacity and spirit that never lags, but, on the other hand are steadily cumulative. Merri ment is constant from the first line spoken until the tangle is finally straightened out in the third act, and during that whole period not a dull moment or a superfluous speech is to be found. A commendable feature of "A Hot Old Timo" Is Its perfect freedom from anything that is objectionable in either lines or situatloni. Its original music is generally whistled wher ever it has been heard, and the scenic investiture is elaborate. This season the company is headed by that famous comedian, Dan Gracey, and clever Ada Burnett. They are supported by such well and favorable known artists as the Gladstone sisters, Pearle Revare, Kate Frayer, Thos. Kennett and a large en semble of pretty and talented singing soubrettes. X X X "Grimes' Cellar Door" is a farce come dy which is destined to live for some time yet, if it is kopt to the standard at which it was presented here Wednesday evening. Mr. Mackie and Miss San ford, who have made the play famous, have surrounded themselves with a good company of specialists. The tramp work of Billy Howard was excellent, the dancing and singing of the LaVar sisters won deserved applause and Miss Nellie Baker captured the audience with her monologues. X X X A lecture will be delivered at the opera house on the 28th Inst, by Lou J. Heauchamp, under the auspices of the Young Men's Christian Association. X X X Edward 11. Frye, in his monolog, "Across the Atlantic," will appear here next Thursday evening in the M. & M. series. t t t Everybody enjoys a little recreation, and there Is nothing like a good laugh to dispel dark Illusions and drive dull care away. If you will attend the Grand next Wednesday evening you will spend two and a half hours of hilarious enjoyment In witnessing a performance of that sparkling comedy, "Side Tracked." Catchy music, bright spe cialties and ludicrous situations ara the order of things, from start to finish. Elected Officers.

Large crowds attended last evening's special meetings of Scranton select and common councils, held to taka action on tha recent order of the Scranton Rail way Company abolishing Its systems of transfers.

Persons who suffer from Indigestion can not expect to live long, becaase they can not eat the food required to nourish the body and the products of the undi gested foods they do eat poison the blood. It Is Important to cura Indiges tion as soon as possible, and the best method of doing this Is to use the pre paration known as Kodol Dyspepsia Cure. It digests what you eat and re stores all the digestive organs to perfect health. Grover's City drug store. GRAND OPERA HOUSE. Freoland Opera House Co., Lessees. Friday Evening, Jan. 11.
