"Tide of Life" Sunday.
Melodrama will hold the boards at
Harjers theatre next Sunday: E.
A'. McDowells New York production
of "The Tide of Life" will be here
with all its original effects, stupend
ous scenery and splendid company.
The production in this city will be
exactly as it was in New York, not
a detail being omitted. The critics
of the metropolis all agree that "The
Tide of Life" was one of the most
striking melodramas that has been
seen for years, and the public en
dorse the opinions' of the critics by
packing the house at every ierform
ance. The old-fashioned "effects" in
melodrama have been avoided in this
one, and the audience sees something
that has never been thought of be
fore. At the end of the fourth net,
for instance, a rascal jumps from the
upHr window of a big office build
ing, and clutches nt a wire in his de
scent. Instantly there bursts forth.
from his hands, arms and apparently
every other part of his body, blue
flames and electric sparks. He is
holding, in a death-clutch, a heavily
charged electric wire, which will not
release him until the curtain has fal
len. The sensation created by this
scene is simply indescribable. The
name of the actor who takes these
chances every night is William
Strong. Frank Kilday. an old time
melodramatic star, ulso plays a
Ready for Instant t'se Without Cooking.
Almost everyone likes u cereal food
of some kind at breakfast and suj
per, but the ordinary way of cooking
cereals results in a pasty mass that
requires strong digestive power to
get along with, and if not properly
digested, the raw mass goes down
into the intestinal tract where gas
is generated and all sorts of troubles
Everyone knows that good food
properly digested keeps the body
weli, while poor food, or even food
of good quality that is poorly prepar
ed and not digested, is sure to bring
on some kind of disease.
The easiest food to digest in this
line is Graie-Nuts, made from wheat
and barley, and cooked thoroughly
at the factory, some ten or twelve
hours being consumed in the differ
ent processes of preparation. The
food, therefore, is ready for instant
service and the stare h has been
changed to Grape Sugar, so that it is
pre-digested and ready for almost
immediate assimiliat ion.
Miss It. E. Phillips, a young lady at
3350 Vernon avenue, Chicago, writes
that she suffered for years from in
digestion and dyspepsia from the use
of food that was not suitable to her
powers of digestion.
She says, "I began using Grape
Nuts, anil I confess to having had a
prejudice, nt first, and was repeatedly
urged before 1 finally decided to try
the food, but I have not known what
indigestion is since using it. and have
never been stronger or in better
health. I have increased in weight
from 109 to 124 pounds."
People can be well, practically
withiut cost, if they will adopt scien
tific food and leave off the indiges
Graje-Nuts Food is sold at all first
clasd groceries. It is crisp and delic
ious to the taste. It should be served
exactly as it comes from the package,
without cooking, except in cases
where it is made up into puddings
and other desserts.
Valuable Horse Killed.
Yada Delia, the thousand-dollar
running horse owned by Howard Wil
son of near Milledgeville, is no more.
Sunday morning, driven by a drunken
member of the Wilson family, the
horse ran over a steep thirty-foot
embankment and broke its neck.
The driver fell in some brush 'grow
ing on the side of the precipice and
his life was saved. The buggy was
smashed to kindlingwood. Sterling
