Here's a timely suggestion: Clip

the fact remains that it is a $5 volume

Some people are constantly annoved
from one year's end to the other with a
persistent bronchial cough, which is w hol
ly unnecessary. Here is a home-made
remedy that gets right at the cause and
wii! make you wonder what became of it.
Get 24 ounces Pinex (50 cents worth!
from any druggist, pour into a pint bottle
and fill the bottle with plain granulated
sugar svrup. Start taking it at once.
Gradually but surely vou will notice the
phlegm thin out and then disappear al
together, thus ending a cough that vou
never thought would end. It also loosens
the dry. hoarse or tight cough and heals
the inflammation in a painful cough with
remarkable rapidity. Ordinary coughs
arc conquered by it in 24 hours or less.
Nothing better for bronchitis, winter
coughs and bronchial asthma.
This Pinex and Sugar Syrup mixture
makes a full pint—enough to last a
family a long time—at a cost of onlv 54
cents. Keeps perfectly and tastes pleas
ant. Easily prepared. Full directions
P'nex is a special and highly concen
trated compound of genuine Norwav pine
extract, rich in miniacol. and is famous
the world over for its ease, certainty and
promptness in overcoming bad coughs,
chest and throat colds.
Get the genuine. Ask vour druggist
for "2% ounces Pinex." and do not accent
anything else. A guarantee of absolute
satisfaction, or money promptly refunded,

"Billy, the Kid"
One of the most amusing, sceens in
the ev or-popular metodrama, "Billy,
the Kid," whitih comes to the Majestic
to-morrow, matinee and night, occurs
in the fourth act of the play. One of
the types, a Southern colonel who has
fought in the war of the Rebellion,
carries a medicine chest about with
him ami am-ong the drugs are both
quinine and morphine. That he may help
one of the other characters, he gives
him what he then supposes to be some
whiskey and quinine, taking some him
self and his colored orderly takes some,
surreptitiously. Then the colonel makes
the horrible discovery that he has mis
taken the bottles and that they have
all taken a big dose of morphine. The
fun begins, for it being well known
that one of the besit antidotes for
opium poisoning is constant action, the
tiuroe keep continually on the move,
each momentarily expecting that he is
about to go under. Happily the col
onel's daughter makes the discovery
that after all no mistaike has been
made and the three draw a long sigh
of relief and-'sit down to rest.
"Damon and Pythia3"
No story with a heart beat in it
has ever lasted and lived more vividly
through all tihe ages than the wonder
fully beautiful narrative of the friend
ship of "Damon and Pythias," which
comes to the Majestic, Saturday, mat
inee and night. These two noble figures
have stood heroically in all the flight
of time an everlasting evidence of
man's humanity to his fellow man and
countless thousands have found life
more blessed 'because of the example.
Then it i» no wonder that the progress
ive photo play producer should realize
that in this great and appealing hu
man story was the subject of subjects.
The always quick to see what is want
ed most and wanted first by the pub
lic, the I niversal Company has made
of this presentation tlieir premier dra
matic spectacle. Living in tlie pomp
and glory that radiated through Greece
in t>he height of its day, these two
noble fiytires are the central feature «n
a story of impelling power, dramatic
intensity and a sentiment that is at
once heart reaching. The real friend
ship of these warriors and leaders of
men and the great test to which it JS
put fills the six parts with a plot of
absorbing interest and one that
bristles with the thrill of unexpected
climaxes and the throb of exciting
pulses. adv. »«»
At the Orpheum
One of thoso dainty, artistic and
pleasing song and dance specialities
that always find favor with Orpheum
audiences, is h-ere again this week, en
joying the applause hit of the fine cur
rent bill at the Orpheuun. They are
Jinunie Casson and Betty Bond, who
are far from strangers to Orpheum
audiences, and this week they seem to
be more popular than ever. Betty is a
winsome miss with a sweet and "pleas
ing voice and a smile that bores right
through. And we would never advise
Betty to try to do away with the dim
ples. Her partner is a natty and grace
ful fellow with a full rich baritone
voice and theee two artists certainly
know how to get full value out of a
popular song. Their songs are the sea
son's newest hits. It is only fair to
say that the act of Bond and Casson is
a representative type of the kind of a
"girl" act, Harrisiburg likes. It is one
of those refined, nifty, sparkling turns
and the 'personalities of the players are
decidedly pleasing. Bond and Catson
offer one of the splendid turns grouped
about "Pekin Mysteries,'' the week's
unusual headliner. In it thrills mystery
and marvelous equilibristic feats ara
offered in interesting and distinctly
Oriental fashion. The Orpheum's bill is
clever and diversified throughout.
At the Colonial
The Salon Singers, presenting one of
the finest vocal offerings the Busy
Corner has seen, will head a bill of
comedy, beauty and sonig that's to ba
inaugurated at that playhouse to-day.
The comedy feature of the bill will bo
