At the Reynolds Opera House this afternoon and tonight (Friday, Feb. 20), Thomas A. Edison will offer to tbe people of Union City his latest gift to the world, the marvelous Kineto phone, or perfected talking pictures. The 'Southern touring road company consists of four experts from Edison's workshops and offices in Orange, N. J., and a full equipment of machines to give a complete presentation. This is absolutely the highest "class touring attraction in the country, it be ing possible to play the largest and smallest playhouses everywhere, and to give the same wonderful results in each. Naturally under the conditions, each of Mr. Edison's companies companies is a "Number One Show," something im possible heretofore in theatricals. The program is very high class and diversified, consisting of comedy, drama, vaudeville, minstrel, grand and light opera, and specialties not of the usual motion picture type, but all made by big artists not heretofore seen in pic tures. Edison has not invented 'talking pic tures," but in the Kinetophona has a device which simultaneously records tbe perfect picture and every spoken or sung word and every sound or musical note in connection therewith, and this device projects in absolute harmony or Syn chronism tbe picture and all sound in an amazing strength and accuracy. Tbe effect has been described as almost un canny in its realism, the auditor for getting that he is merely witnessing a mechanical device, for the vocal effects are absolutely perfect. The Edison Talking Pictures have scored a won derful and popular success everywhere that this touring company of experts has offered them in the first-class the atres.

All tbe dialogues are of the most humorous nature. Among the leading characters there will be a Farmer Boggs family, who travel all the way from Union City to Podunk; Grandpa and Grandma Wiggins, who have not been on the keers for nine years; Miss Stut terly, the stuttering woman; Miss Prim, the o!d maid; Tee-he girl, fat man, Irish woman, woman with baby, bride and groom, who enter the Podunk mid a rice shower and a tin pan serenade, strolling musicians, and many others too numerous to mention.

FORAGE POISON IS MOST FATAL A MESSAGETO WOMEN Who Are "Just Ready to Drop." When you are "just ready to drop," when you feel bo weak that you can hardly drag yourself about and be cause you hare not slept well, you get up as tired-out next morning aa when you went to bed, you need help. Miss Lea Dumas writes from Ma lone, N. Y., saying: "I was In a bad ly run-down condition for several weeks but two bottles of Vlnol put me on my feet again, and made me strong and well Vlnol has done me more good than all the other medi cines I erer took." If the careworn, run-down women, the pale, sickly children and feeble old folks around here would follow Miss Dumas' example, they, too, would soon be able to say that Vlnol, our delicious cod liver and Iron remedy, had built them up and made them strong. - It is a wonderful, Btrength creator and body-builder, and we Bell It un der a guarantee of satisfaction.

State Veterinarian Gives Some In formation. The disastrous effect of the recent outbreak of leuco encephallitis (forage poison) in Maury County calls for a word or two of explanation and cau tion. More than twenty horses and mules died of tbe poison on one farm in that county. Forage poison, accord ing to Dr. Geo. R. White, State Veter inarion, is a disease called by the in gestion of mouldy or decomposed feed, which affects the brain substance in such a manner as to actually cause de generation of the cells of the brain. It has been especially prevalent in Ten nessee during last fall and this winter. Speaking of the disease Dr. White said "Its origin or cause has in most in stances been traced to bad corn and bad. Several farmers have lost as many as four, six and eight head of horses and mules this season from feeding un sound or damaged corn. Ensilage is an exceedingly unsafe feed simply on accoupt of its tendency to mould, de compose and sour, in which condition it readily causes 'blind staggers.' I re call one instance a few years ago where a farmer in Middle Tennessee was pre paring twenty-four mules for' market: Ignorant of the danger of feeding ensi lage to horses and mules, or unthought- edly be gave them a bushel basket half full as a supper ration. When the owner went to the barn the next morning he found eight of these mules already dead and tbe remainder fatally sick from 'forage poison.' Another extensive out break of 'blind staggers' which came under tbe writer's notice was readily traced bach to the inferior grade of clover hay which was. being fed to them. In Nashville no longer than last week, a man in very modest financial circum stances had the misfortune to lose three horses and one mule from 'blind stag gers,' caused by feeding decomposed hay which had been 'ricked' in the field for two years. " 'Blind staggers' is the one disease which is easier to prevent than it is to cure, hence stock men should take notice from other losers and carefully inspect tho ration allowed. If found faulty, by all means reject it. However, I have no hesitancy in saying that nine-tenth of tbe cases which have come under my observation were caused by feeding in ferior corn. I have found the average livestock owner slow to believe that the feed is tbe real, in fact only, cause of deaths from this character of disease They oftentimes refuse to believe it even when told by a qualified veteri nary surgeon. Leuco encephallitis is one of tbe most fatal of all animal diseases It is even more fatal than that much dreaded disease tetanus (lock jaw). The most frequent symptoms ob served is inability to swallow, although mouth contains food; staggering gait, impaired vision resulting in many in stances in total blindness; twitching and contraction of the voluntary muscles Temperature usually normal or sub normal. Later the animals may be come restless, delirious, paralyzed and unable to stand quietly, resulting in unconsciousness, coma ana aeatn, usu ally from exhaustion. Death in most instances takes place within thirty-six hours after the onset of the first symp toms. Whenever one horse in a stable develops 'blind staggers' all the other animals should be removed or the stable thoroughly cleaned by removing every vestige of grain and forage. A com plete change of diet is absolutely neces sary, as it is impossible to definitely do termine what particular part of the feed is responsible for the disease. Where the disease has developed in horses and mules I have always found it safe to feed tbe rejected bay, corn or ensilage to cattle."

Opposition developed in the Senate to the passage of the Lea resolution to appoint a special committee of five Senators to co-operate with the Inter state Commerce Commission in its in vestigation of the affairs of the Louis ville & Nashville Railroad and its allied lines, and the resolution failed to come to a vote. Secretary of State Bryan delivered a message from President Wilson to the Authors' League of America at its first annual banquet in New York. An alleged attempt to dispose of 200,- 000 acres of land in the Colorado Indian reservation has been called to the atten tion of the Indian Commissioner. Atlanta's claims to a regional bank were heard, among others, in that city, by tbe full Organization Committee, and it developed that the reserve dis trict outlined by Atlanta's spokesmen would not be self-sustaining, which, Secretary McAdoo stated, would defeat the purpose of the Currency Law. United States 8enator Gore introduced testimony at Oklahoma City to support his contention that the damage suit of Mrs. Minnie E. Bond is the result of a "frame-up." Lieutenant Governor Ellis i, in the Virginia Senate, broke a tie on the bill allowing 18,104 voters to petition for an election on State-wide prohibition by voting "yes."
