without feeling sudden paius, shiirp
aithes and twinges? Now listen!
That's lumbago, sciatica or maybe
from a strain, and you'll get relief the
moment you rub your back with sooth
ing, penetrating "St. Jacob's Oil."
Xothing else takes out soreness, lame
ness and stiffness so quickly. You
simply rub it 011 your back and out
comes the pain. It is harmless and
doesn't burn the skin.
Limber . up! Don't suffer! Get a
small trial bottle of old. honest "St.
Jacob's Oil" from auy drug store, and
after using it just ouce, you'll forget
that you ever had backache, lumbago
or seiatha, because your back will
never hurt or cause any more misery.

Rose Stahl In "A Perfect Lady"'
Tor an engagement of one night the
Henry B. (Harris estate will present
Kose Stahl in her new comedy, "A
Perfect Lady," at the Majestic on Fri
day evening. "A Perfect Lady" is a
comedy in four acts from tfie pens of
Ohanning Pollock and Rennold Wolf.
It. is the first play whi«ih these authors
have written together, although they
ihave wllaiborated on a num'ber of mu
sical comedy books, notaibly "The Red
"Widow." "The Beauty 'Shop" and
"'My Beet Girl." It is said that in
her new character creation Miss Stahl
has found a role well fitted to those tal
ents for comedy which have made her
name famous throughout the land. The
play is particularly notable for its
bright dialogue and there is an oppor
tunity for the memiiers of the com
pany to distinguish themselves. The es
tate of Henry B. Harris has selected the
company to surround their star with
particular care and each of the numer
ous characters wiil be in competent
hands. From a scenic standpoint it is
said that "A Perfect Lady" is the
most elaborate production in which
Miss Stahl has ever appeared and every

At the Orpheum
The rarest comedy dieh of tihe Or
p'neum's whole career is being served'
up this week. Nat M. Wills, the "king
of tramps." graces most of the pias

attention to the choice hits that garnish
the dish. In other words. Nat M. Wills, i
who is a whole show of laughs in him- I
self, is supported by a bill of rare ex- '

are of the mirth-producing trpe Mr.
Wills, while new to local vaudevillians!
has many followers here, who saw him

of the season 's biggest matinee audi-1
ences turned out to give him the proper I
reception. Nat strolled out before the '
footlights, gave a broad smile, made a i
.funny facial expression with a twist, of '
his elongated tongue, and the audience
responded warmly. The comedian pro

would be more than worth while, for he i
is actually a whole show iu himself.!

OBSCURE PASSAGES PLAIN
This Feature in Bible la Not Only In
teresting, But Instructive to Old
i Almost everybody owns a Bible and
| some have several—sometimes one for
each member of the family. But the
I Star-Independent's Bible is different
from any other ever published. It isj
the regular authorized version, to be
sure, but is illustrated in a manner ■
that has never before been approach
There are six hundred subjects se
lected according to specified verses,
throughout the volume, and each sub-
I ject is handled knowingly by some of j
1 the world's greatest artists, the result I
j being an illustrated volume that van
not be excelled,
j When Kdward \V. Bok. the able g
editor of the "Ladies' Home .lour I
u.il," tirst saw the New Illustrated!
Bible, he said that he liked it because,
1 everything about it was well done, and ;
it seemed to him to have been done in :
the right spirit. "The book itself,"'
said Mr. Bok. "has been approached j
j by the annotator with reserve and in- ■
I telligence, and by its artists wiih sym-j
I pa thy and knowledge. It has been made I
! a meaningless picture book. The pic- j
I tures here serve a distinct purpose.
| They enrich the text, but they dot
! more; they intelligently explain it.)
I and many hitherto obscure passages i
j will assume to thousands a new mean-)

i tures. Popularizing the Bible is a risky ,
i experiment in the hands of many, bui j
j it has been a splendid achievement in '
