Sassoii-Witherspoon Concert
Harrisburg music lovers enjoyed a
rare treat last evening when Mile. Adu
Sassoli, harpist, and Herbert Withcr
spoon, famous basso, of the Metropol
itan Opera Company, were heard in the
artists' concert given in Fahnestock
Jiall by the Wednesday Music Club. .
The artists, both of whom are \yell'
known throughout this and foreign
'countries, rendered a program of ex
quisite numbers. Mile. Sassoli is a rare
and gifted artist, with a marvelous
technique. The "Uhacone," by Dutand,
and a group of numbers by Hasscmans,
were especialy pleasing and effective.
Mr. Wi'therspoon is the possessor of
n voice of excellent quality, and despite
the fact that only four of his twelve
«:umbors were sung in the English lan
guage, completely won his audience by
his beautiful voice anil pieasing per
sonality. The German selection of
Schubert and Schumann were well re
ceived, but his most enjoyable work,
and that most appreciated by the audi
fcuoe, were the songs rendered in our
own language. "Plow Gently Sweet
Alton " and "Meet Me By Moonlight,"
the latter with harp accompaniment,
were rendered by request, with much
taste and feeling.

Importance of Elimin

reiports have frequently appeared in the
Press concerning the remarkable value
of blsurated magnesia as an antacid:
and Its ability to promote normal,
healthy digestion by preventing food
fermentation and neutralizing danger
ous stomach acid has often been dem
onstrated. Until recently druggists
could supply blsurated magnesia In
powder form only, from one to two
tea»poonfU'ls of which, taken In a little
water after meals, almost Instantly
Btops all fermentation and" neutralizes
acid, but sufferers from stoina?h trou

firm of manufacturing druggists has
now succeeded In produclng'a B-grain

Many Vaudeville St.iuits Are Pleasing
ly Combined in One Act—Van and
Schenck Are Applauded as Old Fa
The show whicn began yesterday at
the Orpheum is not only a decided im
provement over last week's—which
may not really be saving very much—
but is certainly one of the best of the
season, which is saying a good deal.
"Home Again," the headliner, is a
production hard to surpass in vaude
ville. The cast consists of fourteen
pleasing entertainers and they work
enough of variety into their act to run
a splendid vaudeville show all by
themselves. Singers, dancers, musi
cians and comedians do their turns io
rapid succession and all are exception
ally good.
Van and Schenck do not need to wait
for applause until the end of their
stunt, for they bring their reputation*
with them and their audience always
knows when they walk onto the stage
that a treat is coming. Their songs
are well selected, mostly new ones in
Harrisburg. They share honors with
Bill Pruett, cal'ed the "Cowboy Ca
ruso," who has two voices, and both
good ones.
Darrell and Corway, with whom must
be included Oscar, a well-trained, dog,
at whose expense numerous jokes are
attempted, aid in making the passing
minutes pleasant ones. Mr. and Mrs.
Frank Gillmore and Cyril Biddulph are
entertaining in their little play, "Such
Extravagance," and Lalo and Otto
Tate supply a bit of comedy intermixed
with gymnastics.
The Spy and the King

"How nluch did he get?" continued
the Kifig. "Two hundred thousand
francs a year, Your Majesty." "Ah,
well," said Louis, "he was honest, then,
after all. I had half."
