What, we wonder, would happen to

should dare to put on the stage such
a version of a Shakespearean tragedy

dred years ago? Mrs. Earle lu her

The play was ’’the tragedy of ‘Ham-
let,' originally written and composed
by the celebrated Dan Hayes of Lim-
erick and inserted in Shakespeare's
works.” The title role Is taken by a
gentleman "who between the acts will
perform several solos on the patent
bagpipe which performs two tunes at
tho same time.”
Once on a time there was a little
giant boy who lived near the edge of
Glantland. One day in the woods he
had met a little lost boy from Man-
land. The little boy had been out in
the woods looking .for Christmas
“Dear, dear," the giant boy said,
“would you tell me what you mean by
So the little boy from Manland told
him all about Christmas and Santa
Claus, and the little giant boy thought
Christmas was a fine Idea.
“But we don't have it here,” he said.
“I wish we could get Santa to come
to visit the little boys In Giantlnnd.”
“Oh, that’s easy!’’ replied the little
lost boy. “Just write a letter to Santa.
He live* at tile north pole. He'll be
sure to eome to see .you then.’’
Then the little lost l>oy took the road
through the woods that the giant boy
said led to Manland, and he. was never
seen around there again.
That evening the little giant boy told
his father and mother about Santa.
He also wrote a note to the old gentle-
man asking him to please come down
(heir chltnnpy that Christmas. ,
Santa was pleased when he got that
letter, bat when all the other young
giant boy* and girls began writing to
him he was a good deal worried, be-
r-anse he’d never visited Giantland and
felt that the toys which he made for
children of ordinary site would scarce-
ly do for giant children.
However, Sants made up his mind he
would do the best he could.
On Christmas night he stopped his
sleigh on the roof of the giant boy’s
house. When he saw the big chimney
Santa Claus was almost tempted to

The pack full of toys would scarcely
have filled the toe of the stocking.
The little giant boy was angry when
he got. up and found the stocking empty.
“There, nnit-.” he cried; “it's all u
humbug about Santa Claus! You see.
there isn’t any Santa Claus after all!”
And all th* other little giant boys

Flush the Kidneys at once when Back-

No man or woman wbo eats meat regu-

which clogs the kidney pores so they

The moment you feel a dull ache in the
kidneys or your back hurts, or if the
urine is cloudy, offensive, full of sedi-

by a sensation of scalding, get about four
ounces of Jad Salts from any reliable
pharmacy and take a tablespoonful iu
a glass of water before breakfast for a
few days and your kidneys will then act
fine. This famous salts is made from
the acid of grapes and lemon juice, oom-

generations to flush clogged kidneys and

A Fine Winter Sport.
Skiing Is a splendid winter sport for
those who are fond of exhilarating ex-
ercise. It is more practiced in Nor-
way and Sweden and Switzerland than
a yotmo bkibb is Switzerland.
in this country, but Is yearly growing
In popularity. The young skier here
pictured was snapped in the Wengern
Alps, not'fnr from Berne, Switzerland.
The young person is attired in a cos-
tume well suited to
Going to Jerusalem.
This is a very popular game for the
small glrlj and boys. Place a row of
chairs, facing alternately different
ways, through the center of the room,
a chatr for each player except one.
Have some one play a lively turn* on
the piano, first fust, next slow, very
loud and again quite low, while the
girls and boys march around the chair*
without touching them, but keeping
lime to the music. Suddenly the music
stops, when each one rushes for a
chair, and the one left standing is out
of the game. Each time the marching
recommences a chair Is taken away
until but onp chair remains. The child
who succeeds in seating herself or
himself In' the one remaining chair
wins the game.

SLOAN’S LINIMEENT EASES PAIN
Sloan's Ltuiuient Is first thought of
mothers for humps, bruises and
sprains that are continually happen-
ing to children. It quickly penetrates
and soothes without rubbing. Cleaner
and more effective than mussy plas-
ters or ointments. For rheumatic
aches, neuralgia pain and that grlppy
soreness after colds, Sloan’s Liniment
gives prompt relief. Have n bottle
handy for bruises, strains, sprains
and all external pain. For the thous-
ands whose work calls them outdoors,
tlie pains and aches following expos-
ure are relieved by Sloan’s Liniment.

“Hobson’a choice” may best be
translated, “that or nothing.” Tobias
Hobson was a carrier and Innkeeper
at Cambridge, who erected the hand-
some conduit there and settled “seven
lays” of pasture ground toward its
maintenance. But the story about
him, as told by the Spectator, is as
follows: “He kept a stable of forty
good cattle, always ready and fit for
traveling. But when a roan came for
a horse he was led Into the stable,
where there was great choice, but was
obliged to take the horse that stood
nearest to the stable door, so that ev-
ery customer was alike well served,
according to his chance, and every
horse ridden with the same Justice.”
Milton wrote two quibbling epitaphs
upon this eccentric character.
GETTING THE MOST
OUT OF LIFE.
i Few people really enjoy living atpl
get the most out of themselves either
iu their work or their enjoyment.
What pleasure to feel so good that
one gets the keenest kind of delight
dnt of living, from tlie moment they
wake up In the morning bright-eyed
and refreshed, until they sink peace-
fully to sleep at nigh/,.
To enjoy this kind of living one
must keep the bowels open and the
liver, active. And the most practical
means for tills is Bond’s Liver Pills
because they are mild, yet effective and
aft on the liver. They do not gripe
nor derange tlie sysietn. At druggists
