Coupon Taken From To-day's Issue En
ables You to Witness Performance
for Nominal Sum of Twonty-tive
' ~ I
It isn't often tlint you are able to
enjoy vour choice of any seat at the
Majestic Theatre for the small sum of
25 cents to witness a road attraction,
yet the Star-Independent has a plan
whereby this will be possible ucxt Mon
dav evening at the opening performance
of Thurston, the magician, who opens
a three days' engagement Monday
night. March Ist.
The Star-Independent, by special ar
rangement with Mr. Thurston and C.
Floyd Hopkins, manager of the Ma
jestic, is printing to-day a coupon wliieb
should be clipped from the paper. This
coupon and 25 cents, when presented
at the Majestic Theatre box office, will
entitle the holder to their choice of
seats for the Monday night perform
ance. No one is limited to anv num
ber of coupons. The more you clip the
merrier and when accompanied by 25
cents each you can have as many seats
as you have coupons. Present your
coupons at the box office Saturday and
reserve your seats for Monday night.
America is a trifle boastful of some
of the accomplishments of the Yankee
race, and certainly we have reason to
be proud of Thurston who has amused
nations and made them pay for it.
Thurston talks English or at least
Americanese. He talks all the time lie
works—ami then some. He uses lan
guage to divert you from what he is
doing. If you speak English and un
derstand what he isrsaying, you will
find that his conversation dazzles,
sparkles, electrifies, lie is wise, witty,
subtle, keen and has a vocabulary like
a circus ad-writer. Ami here is the
strange part—the people who do not
know a word of English enjoy Thurston
just as much as those who do, which
shows you what a superfluity words
really are.
Every triok of every magician who
ever lived is known to Thurston. He
makes no pretense at exposing any
particular faitli or fail, but all of tho
so-called apparitions or spirits Thurs
ton duplicates right before you. In
Egypt, Japan, China and India, the
very homes of mystery. Thurston made
his greatest successes during his three
year tour round the world." If he were
to wear all the dccgrations that have
been given him by nionarchs it would
increase his weight considerably. The
coupon appears in another column, cut
it out and enjoy a treat.

Winter Doubles Work
In summer the work of eliminating i
poisons and acids from the blood is'
helped by perspiration. In cold weather,
with little out door work or exercise to
cause sweating, the kidneys have to do
double work. Foley Kidney Pills help
overworked, weak and diseased kidneys
to filter and cast out of the blood the
waste matter that causes pains in sides
or back, rheumatism, lumbago, stiffness
of joints, sore muscles and other ills re

The Yaws
On the west coast of Africa -Hie na
tives call th,> raspberry a yaw. It hap
pens that one of the pleasing diseased
that come out from that quarter of the
globe is characterize*! by dusky red
apots that a|ypear on the body and soon
grow into ulcers about the size and
looks of the raspberry. So this disease
is called the yaws. It is contagious
and downright disagreeable. White
sailors bring it back with them to their
oiwu discomfort and the disgust of
those at home. Yaws prevails also in
the Fiji islands and in Samoa, but in
these two places children mainly are
attacked, and the natives regard the
disease in the same light as civilized
persons look at measles—almost a cer
tainty to have and the sooner over
with the better.
