At the Reynolds Opera House this
afternoon and tonight (Friday, Feb.

phone, or perfected talking pictures.
The 'Southern touring road company

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

device which simultaneously records tbe
perfect picture and every spoken or sung
word and every sound or musical note

HOME TALENT PLAY.
"Fun on the Podunk Limited at
Reynolds Theatre Feb. 24.
The participants in the home talent
play, "Fun on the Podunk Limited,"
given for the benefit of the Ladies' Aid
Society of the Christian Church, are
busy as bees preparing their parts for
next Tuesday night, Feb. 24.
All the parts are progressing beyond
the fondest hopes of those having it in
charge, and there can be doubt of the
"Podunk Limited" being a rousing suc
cess. 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.
But after all no amateur performance
can be quite a success without pretty,
catchy musical numbers, and we will
have it on the Podunk Limited. There
will be two numbers by tbe small chil
dren, one a Gingaloo Chorus of about
75 little girls, followed by a Boogie
Chorus of about the same number of
little boys. These will be tbe cutest
ever. Then there will be a Western
Chorus of girls in Western costumes
that will have a Wild West snap and
spirit that will please any audience
The choruses by the High School girls
and boys will be more artistic, namely
The Wand Chorus, Little Miss Up-to-Date
Chorus, where the girls are in
evening dresses, immense paper muffs
and bonnets, the boys in white flannel
trousers and blue serge coats, and as a
closing number a Sea-Saw Chorus, with
three sea-saw boards decorated in im
mense paper roses and electric lights
All these songs are be catchiest song
productions and will be presented in a
beautiful, artistic manner.

Oliver's Red Cross Drug Store, Union
State Veterinarian Gives Some In
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
