WAX OR HUM AN ?
Secret of "Norba," the Piano Player,
to Bs Revealed Saturday
In'the windows of the C. M. Sigler
Inc. Piano Store there is being held a
novel exhibition for the purpose of dem
onstrating player-pianos. It is in the
form of a figure either wax or human
which for two hoyrs plays continuously
a player-piano with a realism so great
that those who have viewed <j>f
about equally divided opinion.
, ,Ju9t as you are sure that the figure
is human, something happens to make
I you think th:vt it is wax. And if yoa
think it is wax. something happens to
make you think that it is human.
[There's mighty good reason to think
both ways, for the work is carried out
in such a way as to fool the best.
The secret of "Xopba," the figure,
will be exposed on Saturday evening at
the close of the exhibition, until which
time the crowds gathered in front of
the store are given the opportunity to
registered a guess as to their conviction.
The face and the eyes of the figure are
absolutely immobile and the features so
regular that they couldn't be anything
e'.se Out wax. Then again, what's that
which makes you think that he is hu
man! But the best aud only answer
is to see it. Its worth a trip to the
store even though you have no interest
in registering your guess.

THOUGHT HE HAD
Bnt Now Eats Corned Beef, Cabbage,
Pork* Onions and Mince Pie for
Dinner and Never Feels a Pain
Do you belong to the "No thank you"
lociety of the dinner table where the
mere sight of certain foods makes you
feel the paiu you know would be yours
if you ever ate themf
Corn Beef, Cabbage, Pork, Beets, On
ions, Turnips, etc., are all good healthy
*trengthening foods and a strong,
healthy stomach can always digest
them. Yet if the stomach kicks back
; nad simply won't work on such strong
fare it's folly to fall back on artificial
digesters that push the stuff through
whether the stomach wills or not.
What a weak, easily upset stomach
really needs is not a digestive aid but
a stomach strengthened Any reliable
i physician will tell you it's dangerous to
continually dose the stomach with pep
sin digesters and the like. His own pre
scription will act on the stomach in
stead. No physician ever wrote a bet
ter stomach prescription than that em
bodied in the famous MI-O-NA Stom
ach Tablets that H. C. Kennedy and
most every other druggist in this vi
cinity sells ,with the positive guaran"
tec that they must put a complete and
lasting end to stomach misety or money
back. Mi-o-na strengthens the walls
and muscular fibres of the stomach and
induces prompt normal working of your
own stomach machinery. It gives relief
in ten minutes to all the common and
uncomfortable symptoms of sour rising,
?[as, belching, burning, bloating, shoot
ng pains, etc., and in a few weeks will
put the stomach in such a clear and
perfectly healthy condition that it can
digest a typical New England boiled
dinner without the slightest effort or

An Easy Way to Get
Fat and Be Strong
The trouble with most thin folks who
wish to gain weight, is that they insist
on drugging their stomach or stuffing it
with greasy foods; rubbing on useless
"flesh creams," or following some fool
ish physical culture stunt, while the
real cause of thinness goes untouched.
You cannot get fat until your digestive
tract assimilates the food you eat.
Thanks to a remarkable new scientific
discovery, it is now possible to combine
into simple form the very elements
needed bv the digestive organs to help
them cojivert food into rich, fat-laden
blood. This master stroke of modern
chemistry is called Sargol and has been
termed the greatest of flesh-builders.
Hargol aims through its re-generative,
re-constructive powers to coax the stom
ach and intestines to literally soak up
the fattening elements of your food and
pass them into the blood, where they
are carried to every starved, broken
down cell and tissue of your body. Ypu
can readily picture the result when this
amazing transformation has taken
place and you notice how your cheeks
fill out, hollows about your neck,
shoulders and bust disappear and yon
take on from 10 to 20 pounds of solid,
healthy flesh. Sargol is absolutely
harmless, inexpensive, eflieicnt. 0. A.
Gorgas an!l other leading druggists of
Harrisburg and vicinity have it and
will refund your money if you are not
satisfied, as per the guarantee found
in every package.
Oration:—While Sargol has given ex
cellent results in overcoming nervous
dyspepsia and general stomach trouhliw
it should not be taken by those who do
not wish to gain ten pounds or more.

that screwless mountings were

age of lenses. I'm "tickled to

Of course these new screw

breakage. That's what they
are intended to do. But, if you
stop to think yon will see
where this is a good, live,
strong talking point in their
favor. It's a talking point
