THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 1908. ELMIRA ST PAGE FOUR. AS GREATEST PLAY For Ten Years Marvellous Production Has Held Attention of Public- It Appeals to All Classes. "Ber Hur," produced originally at the Broadway Theater, New November 1899, continuing career of triumph and in this, its tenth year, it promises to be even more successful than during any previous season. Adniration and liking for this superb production of Messrs.

Klaw Erlanger have grown apace until it has become a matter of wonder to the theatrical world, as well as the public. Not only does "Ben appeal to the constant playgoer, who sees almost all productions, but in an even greater degree it appeals to the religious devotee, and at every performance of the Wallace- Young drama the audience contains more than a sprinkling of persons who have never before been within the walls of a playhouse. Ministers of the Gospel and zealots of the religious world mingle with men and women who are present merely for the pleasure derived from the marvelous pictures unfolded before them, and conscious only of the exciting events that make up the story of Judah, the Prince of Hur. It is this inexplicable hold which the play has on all minds that has made "Ben the greatest drama of the age; the most successful play of all times. The drama has been praised from.

pulpits and in religious periodicals; it has met unqualified approval from stern-faced divines and from meek and workers; it has created furors hearts of the most lowly, worldly minded; it has caused the most biase to "sit up and take notice;" and critics have fallen under the charm of its beauty and its spell of solemnity. At the Lyceum Theater on Sept, 28th, 29th and 30th will be disclosed the most magnificent production yet given of the Wallace romance. Indeed, this present equipment is said to be the most expensive ever provided a spectacle. A special matinee has been scheduled for Wednesday afternoon, September 30. This will be especially pleasing news to ladies and children who take the deepest delight in the wondrous scenes and enchanting music of this stirring Biblical romance.

Fresh from the gardens of the finest tea-producing country in the world (the Island of Ceylon), "Salada" Tea is sold only in sealed lead packets, thus preserving its delicious flavor and aroma.

0000000004 The Figure How Too Much Fat May Be Safely Reduced at Home. that this too, too solid flesh would melt!" cry the ladies nowadays as they try to squirm into a princess frock. How much would the too erously proportioned dame not give for four inches less in the waistup line as she compares herself with the fortunate one hundred and more twenty-five-pound sister. Various devices are suggested to arrest the flesh producing tendency and keep the figtrim, including exercising, walkure ing and dieting as well as numerous remedies, but there are obpatented to all of these. Exercising is jections hard work and takes up precious time; dieting is distasteful and a real punishment, and most of the patent remedies are dangerous to health.

The very best thing for the overfat, whether male or female, is a simple home receipt: oZ. Marmola, oZ. Fluid Extract Cascara Aromatic, 3 oz. Peppermint Water, which can be obtained of any druggist at small cost. This should be teaspoonful at a time after taken, "and at bedtime, and results will be both speedy and certain.

This is a harmless mixture that cannot bring on any stomach troubles nor cause the dried-up wrinkled appearance of those who starve or take "patent contrary, reducers" although to get it often thin. takes On the fat off at the rate of a pound a day, it is really very beneficial to the system, cleansing the blood and causing the complexion to become fair and beautiful. The cost of the three ingredients is a mere bagatelle, and one may, if they prefer, get them separately and mix them together at home. M.
