generally conceded, that fact is most strongly emphasized in our great May and January

FINE PLAY POORLY DONE.
Henry Miller fell far below promises
in the production of "The Great Di

theatregoers at the Illinois last even
tag. With the exception of four of
the leading characters, the perform

failing to bring out the play in its full

The Value of Proprietary Medicine
is proven by the very large percent
age of physicians prescriptions for
same remedies found in every drug
store In America, but as they are
written in Latin, few patients realize
this fact. '
The old standard proprietary med
icines like Lydia E. Pinkham's Vege
table Compound, that have stood the
test of time, deserve a place in every
family medicine chest, and it is most
certain they would not be prescribed
by. physicians if they were able to
devise a formula equally as efficacious.
