Lovers of the highest ideals in dramatic art are continually finding fault with the too fre quent appearance not only here but in all the cities of silly far cical plays, cheap sensationalism and the other immaterial feat ures of current theatrical pro ductions and are always clamor ing for the works of Shakespeare and the other great masters of literature. It is a pleasure to announce in this connection the early appear ance here of the eminent trage dian John Griffith and his splen did company of the legiti mate artists in Shakespeare’s immortal tragedy,” Macbeth,” with brilliant fire-proofed scenic equipment, electrical effects, chemical illusions and all the de tails needful to insure an abso lutely perfect performance of this the greatest of the great master’s plays. Everywhere that Mr. Griffith has appeared the local press has teemed with praise of his magnificent per formance, and it will be a real pleasure to welcome him to this city. The engagement is an nounced for Saturday evening, Feb. 25, and promises to be the one great bjg event of the sea son. I j OFFICERS’ SPECIAL GOES OVER NEW LINE.

Conan Doyle’s detective sto ries, with the marvelous Sher ! lock Holmes as their hero, have achieved the greatest success of recent years. Appreciating this fact, the publisher of Collier’s Weekly, New York, induced Mr. Doyle to write a final series of the great detective’s adventures. Repeated refusals were followed by increased inducements, and finally Mr. Doyle agreed to write thirteen stories for $45,000, or about 60 cents a word. The en tire correspondence was by ca ble. The amount paid by Collier’s is the largest ever paid for such work and does not include the right to publish the stories in book form. By special arrange ment with Collier’s these famous stories are being printed in the Kansas City Star, one story each week, beginning in the daily edition of Saturday, February 11, and in the weekly Wednesday, February 15. None of the present popular features of the Star will be cut down or omitted to make room for this remarkable set of stories. Practically the contents of a $1.50 book will be added to the con tents of the Star in three months without any increase of the sub scription price, 10 cents a week for the daily Star, (morning, evening and Sunday, 13 complete papers a week) and 25 cents a year for the weekly Star.

How to Get Well. Every organ of the body is I directly connected with the brain by nerves. The nerve cells in the brain generate nerve force—power—and send it to the organ through these nerves, and thi^ nerve-force gives life and action. The or gans work perfectly when there is sufficient nerve power. Lack of nerve force weakens the ac- I tion of an organ and it works imperfectly—becomes sick. Two-thirds of all sickness is thus due to weak or deranged nerves; it is therefore advisa ble to take Dr. Miles’ Restor ative Nervine, because it makes nerve energy. When you cure the nerves you remove the cause, and that’s the way to get well. “Dr. Miles’ Restorative Nervine cured me of nervous prostration after every other effort had failed to give me relief. My trouble seemed to begin with a general loss of strength and a breaking down of the nervous system. I suffered from headache, constipation and fluttering or palpita tion of the heart. My appetite failed and I was so nervous and restless that I could not sleep at night. My hus band. who is a druggist, brought me a bottle of Nervine. It helped me from the start, and I continued using it until I had taken six bottles. My health was completely restored. MRS. SILA M. MOREHOUSE. North Adams. Mioh.
