Humanity loves the mysterious, and seeks that which it cannot understand,
and for this reason Thurston is playing to capacity audiences everywhere, his
performance reveals a new magic world which savors of the uncanny and pro
duces the thrill which mere mortals love.
One can return again and again to witness the program of sensational
mysteries presented by Thurston, and still leave the theatre with the reason why
unsolved. There is no reason why with Thurston. It just is. He will bring
with him a company of 26 people and more than one hundred mvsteries.
It is a strange field in which this brilliant young man has devoted his life,
one that has been occupied by very few really illustrious artists. With his
dexterous fingers, his ready wit, and his genuine personality, he is not only a
wizard to excite wonder, he is a companion to enjoy. His interesting program
appeals to the children for the little ones stare in open, mouthed astonishment

Says Excess of Hydrochloric Acid Is
Cause of Indigestion
A well-known authority states that
stomach trouble and indigestion is
nearly always due to acidity—acid
stomach —and not, as most folks be
lieve, from a lack of digestive juices.
He states that an excess of hydrochloric
acid in the stomach retards digestion
and starts food fermentation, then our
meals sour like garbage in a can, form
ing acrid fluids and gases which inflate
the stomach like a toy balloon. We
then get that heavy, lumpy feeling in
the chest, we eructate sour food, belch
gas, or have heartburn, flatulence,
waterbrash, or nausea.
Ho tells us to lay aside all digestive
aids and instead, get from any phar
macy four ounces of Jad Salts and take
a tablespoouful in a glass of water be
fore breakfast while it is effervescing,
and furthermore, to continue this for
one week. While relief follows the first
dose, it iB important to neutralize the
acidity, remove the gas-making mass,
start the liver, stimulate the kidneys

Jad Salts is inexpensive and is made
from the acid of grapes and lemon

second law Is, "The orbits of all of the
planets are ellipses, the suu being in.
one common focus of them all." All'
of the other foci are empty space. The
eccentricities of orbits of all planets
vary on account of the attraction of all
the other planets making variations.
Some are decreasing while others are
Increasing, but none can ever become
exact circles since there are eight mu
tually disturbing planet*.
That of the earth's orbit is now de
' creasing and, according to the French
astronomer Leverrier, who took time
to make elaborate mathematical re
searches in this part of astronomy, will'
continue to decrease during about
24,000 years, but will not vaaish, mak
ing the earth's orbit an exact circle,
and then will begin to increase.
The orbit of Venus now has the least
eccentricity and is therefore nearer a
true circle than any other orbit, but it
cannot become a circle, one reason
being the disturbance caused by the
huge mass of the earth. One earth re
volving around one sun. both trillions
of miles away from any other disturb

THE SILVER SWORD.
It Growa In Hawaii and Is the Rarest
Plant In the World.
The rarest plant in the world grows
in Hawaii, a fact which is unknown
to all but very few of the thousands
of tourists annually visiting the para
dise of the Pacific. It is the silver
Its very name is odd and unusual,
at once arousing the curiosity and the
luterest of the stranger who chances
to hear It. It Is a cactus-like growth,
the long, silky, gray leaves of which
give It Its peculiar name. The rea
son for Its rarity is that It Is found
only on the most inaccessible slopes of
the volcanoes of this group of islands.
From the earliest times it has been
appreciated and greatly admired by
the native Hawailans. who called it
"ahinahina" (gray headed), because
they had never before the coming of
the white man seen silver and there
fore could not apply to the plant the
cognomen which so well describes it.
All who have found it prize It more
Jealously than do Alpine climbers
treasure the edelweiss. It is a far more
beautiful thing and more difficult to
obtain than the famous flower of Swit
zerland.—San Francisco Chronicle.
Gun Power at Waterloo.
As to gun power at the time of Wa
terloo, two facts of guidance: The
British drill sergeants of the day
taught recruits to hold their fire "until
they could see the whites of the eyes
of the enemy." That would make the
best musketry range. 1 should 'say,
about twenty-five yards. "Brown Bess"
was not of much use beyond sixty
yards, judging by all the evidence. As
to big pieces, then, as now, naval guns
were superior to field artillery, and
Nelson loved to get in his broadsides
at sixty yards! 1 that 600
yards was counted the limit of effec
tive naval gun fire then. Field artil
lery range would be less, probably
much less. The enormous increase In
the effective range of guns since 1»
due, first to explosives with greater
power and more controllable power
second, the invention of rifled barrel*
and breechloading, aud, third, stronger
alloys of metals.—Frank Fox in Lon
The Bulgarian is perhaps the most
simple minded and industrious peas
ant in Europe, and. paradoxical as it
may appear, his standard of morality
is extremely high, although elopements
are more numerous than In any other
country. But these are generally in
nocent affairs, being simply the device
of young couples to get married with
out the expense a regular Bulgarian
wedding entails. In most cases not
only Is the consent of both parents ob
tained, but all friends are Informed
and assemble outside the bride's bouse
to witness the elopement.
Right In Style.
Small Stella had always worn high
shoes, but she had long desired a pair
of slippers'like those her older sister

"when my shoes are worn out can't I
have a pair of low necked shoes like
lister's?"— Cincinnati Times-Star.
