The Wood-Ray Stock Compa ny, who are playing at the Jack- i son this week, are certainly mak ing good, as is evidenced by the large crowds attending every night. They opened Monday night with a great Southern play, “The Pride of Virginia,” and were met by one of the larg est crowds ever attending the Jackson. This seemed to give them the proper enthusiasm and they certainly made good. We believe them to be the best set of actors who have ever appear ed here. One of the special feat ures is their orchestra, and in this connection we wish to com pliment them on the excellent music furnished by them each night. Every night up-to-date specialties have been introduced between the acts and there was not a minute in which there was not something doing. They will play the rest of the week and on Satm»day afternoon will put on a special matinee for the benefit of the children who have been attending school and could not attend the other attractions.' To those who have not attended the former attractions we wish to say that if you want to enjoy a good laugh and to see something that will drive away dull cares you should certainly attend the remaining night of this week.— Heber Springs Headight. * * Will be at Newport Theatre all next week.

THE NEALE INSTIT - ' j In Three Days You Will Be Perfectly Reliev Habit and All Those Symptoms Which Liquor As “Medicine” Will Di NO MAN can afford to drink liquor — particularly a business or professional man, whose suc cess and possibilities of achieve ment depend upon a strong brain—a brain that is always clear and ready for business. A whiskey brain sometimes “feels” clear and bright and capable— but it isn’t; it is all wrong. The “feeling” of -alertness and ambition is short-lived STIMU LATION of an organ that is weakened and paralyzed by the most insidious of all poisons— the POISON OF ALCOHOL. Under the guidance of the liquor drinker the best business in the world will fail—executive abil ity, stamina and logic are lack ing. Why does a drink of liquor seem to quiet the nerves?
