Waco for Three Days Beginning
Thursday Evening Feb. 20.
The indentation of "Ben-Hur" j
in Waco 011 .Feb. 20-21-22 a special!
matinee performance < >11 Washing-
ton's Birthday, Feb. l'_' is the
topic of the hour in thi* vicinity |
and many of our most prominent
citizens have signified their in-
tention of attending.
"Ben-Hur" with its lustrous
Star of Bethlehem, its camels,
j Arabian steeds, Oriental trappery
jand mimic splendor of the "gorge
ous East" is beyond dispute the
most elaborate spectacle ever
staged in the history of the
world. Its series of 17 scenes
present to the eye a feast of mul-
tifarious beauty and vurietv, ail
set to a symphonic accompani- j
ment of graceful music. The
exciting episodes, such as the ;
galley scenes witlr its horde of
chained slaves, the sea tight, the
rescue in mid-sea and the thrill-
ing race with two chariots and !
eight horses, combined with the
picturesque scenes illustrating j
the Wise Men in the desert, the
moonlit lake in the Orchard of!
Palms where Ben-Hur and irasi
enjoy seclusion and make love in j
Iras' barge, the palm-waving
worshippers on Mount Olivet,)
and the Grove of Daphne with its
nympth dancing in the skins of
beasts to the music of kissing—
cymbals—simply captivate the
audiences wherever it is enacted.
all ages and all denominations of
the Christian faith, and draws to
it, as a place to worship, hundreds
of thousands who seldom, if ever, •
set foot with in a theatre. The
person of the Savior is never j
made to appear bodily in the 1
play, yet in the scene in which j
the healing of the lepers is im-
plied, the approach of the Master j
is indicated by a stream of pure \
white light, amazing in its effect- j
iveness. This scene is the most j
remarkable of the play and is 1
heightened in impressiveness by j
the singing of a chorous of one j
hundred voices, joing in "Hosan-
nas" of praise to the Lord.
The seat sale for "Ben-Hur"
will open Monday, Feb. 17th. j
Mail orders with remittance will
be promptly attended to when |

"The Grip is probably bestdes-
cribed as a moveable stationery
pain. It moves to a hundred
places in a minute without leav-
ing any place, hence it upsets all
laws of nature by being both
fixed and moveable.
The object of the Grip so far as
ascertrined, is to make humanity
miserable and create a demand
for whiskey. In the working out
of these it is succeeding admir-
ably. There is no safe rule for
measuring the misery it has al-
ready dumped upon the world,
hut statistics show an increased
consumption of whiskey in spite
of the fact that about half the
country has gone dry.
The birth place of the Grip, is
said to be Siberia, but this is dis-
puted Qn good grounds. Siberia
probably furnished the chill part,
but there isn't a carloric bed any-
where except in Hades that could
have touched into life the warm
end. The preparation has never
been thoroughly analyzed but the
best chemists say itis composed of
i-qual parts of iceberg, blizzard,
aqua I'ortis, highlife and li—1 lire.
The symptoms of Grip are
positive and unmistakable, in
the state of preparation or incu-
bation you feel like you had
stolen the rattler from your
neighbor's baby and sold it to
the junk dealer. Two minutes
later you get dissatisfied with
your surroundings and weep and
wail because you didn't migrate
to Ghenna or Bonhain week be-
ticket, and go to bed with your
After the first day the symp-
toms change materially. Your
head feels like a room jammed
full of lighted powder, with no
Then you cuss your
to vote the socialist
space or air hole for the thing to
explode. About the same time
your stomach begins to seethe
and surge and roar like Mount
Pelee on a Christmas spree and
your bones run together like mol-
ten lead. No matter whether
your life has been that of a saint-
ly Christian or a miserable sinner
you pray that you may die, and
you don't care a fig whether
prayers are said for the repose
of your soul or not; you are more
than willing to change the pain
you have for the very worst there
may be 011 the other side of the
river Styx—you simply cuss the

Treatment of the Grip is of
small concern. Take anything
that's handy without any fear of
it doing any damage or proving
beneficial to the slightest degree.
Don't be afraid of narcotics; if
you swallow an ounce of opium it
won't put you to sleep or bring
surcease of pain; if your feet are
cold don't hesitate to sear them
with a red hot poker; it won't
blister them, neither will it im-
part the slightest warmth. The
standard remedy is whiskey: doc-
tors prescribe it, not because it
will do any good, but because it
is the only thing that can possibly
make a fellow feel as bad as Grip
itself. A whiskey headache has
been known to make a fellow for-
get a Grip backache and thus af-
ford a moment's relief.
All Grip convalescents should
be confined in a mad house or a

Can Eczema be cured?
Some physicians say "Yes."
Some say ,'No."
The real question is, "What is
' meant by Eczema?" If you mean
' those scaly eruptions, those dis-
eases which make t heir first ap-
I pearance, not at birth, but years
afterward, and perhaps not until
middle age—then there can no
longer be any question that these
forms of eczema are curable.

An Old Negress Shot by Boys.
Matfie Surgers, an old negress
about the age of 0r> years, on last
Friday in Temple, received a
painful gunshot wound in the
head. She was going to the
country to work on a farm and
on her way met some boys in a
field pranking with a gun. As
she was about to pass them the
gun was discharged, the load
taking effect in the right side of
her face and head. The gun hap-
pened to be loaded with bird
shot and aside from the painful
wound inflicted the injury may
not be serious. Officers Hunt
and Osborne reported the case
and summoned Dr. Gooch. He
made an examination and turned
the patient over to Dr. Holland,
who dressed the wounds.
The officers were unable to
locate the boys who did the
shooting but are sure it was ac-
cidental. The old woman does
not know them, and had nothing
to say to them.
Last Friday morning about H j
o'clock a fire alarm was turned
in. The fire boys made a fine|
runup North Main street to a
point where they turned in to
Baylor College. The fire proved
to be in the residence of Mrs. I
Hill near the Cottage Home, an
annex to the college. Some dam-
age to the house was done before
the fire boys arrived but the
blaze was soon extinguished up-
on their arrival.

Late in the night of the 5th, on
Wednesday, Deputy Sheriff Wi-
ley Fisher came in from near
the Milam county line with Mace
McMillon under his surveilance.
McMillon is a white man, sixty-
five years of age, and is wanted
in Pulaski county, Tenn., on an
indictment charging seduction.
Sheriff John Holt of Pulaski coun-
ty has been notified of the arrest
and wired last Friday that he
had left Tennessee on that day
for Belton with proper requisi-
tion papers in the case, and upon
the arrival of the sheriff the party
will be turned over to him for
return to Tennessee.
McMillon states that the charge
against him is nothing more than
a conspiracy worked up to shield
and protect the party actually
guilty of the crime, and that he
has no fears of being able to es-
tablish his innocence before the
