A tickling cough, from any cause, is
2uickly stopped by Dr. Shoop's Cough
lure. And it is so thoroughly harmless
and safe, that Dr. Shoop tells mothers
everywhere to give it without hesita
tion even to very young babes. The
wholesome green leaves and tender
stems of a lung-healing mountainous
shrub, furnish the curative properties
to Dr. Shoop's Cough Cure. It calms
the cough, and heals the sore and sensi
tive bronchial membranes. No opium,
no chloroform, nothing harsh used to
injure or suppress. Simply a resinous
plant extract, that help to heal aching
lungs. The Spaniards call this shrubs
which the Doctor uses, "The Sacred
Herb." Always demand Dr. Shoop's
Cough Cure. Griffin's Drug Store.

Modern Plays and Players.
We no longer demand that a man or
woman play a part. We insist that the
part fit the man or woman. This con
dition no doubt is largely the fault of
managers, who instead of requiring
impersonation pick performers for
their likeness to the characters to be
assumed. "Have you a father?*' one
can imagine them inquiring of a can
didate. "Yes." "Then you won't do.
rffhis man's father died 4 twenty years
