Combing Won't Rid
Hair of Dandruff j
The only sure way to get rid of dan
druff is to dissolve it, then you destroy
it entirely. To do this, get about four
ounces of ordinary liquid arvon; apply
it at night when retiring; use enough
to moisten the scalp and rub it in
gently with the finger tips. '
Do this to-night, and by morning
most, if aot all, of your dandruff will be ,
gone, and three or four more applica
tion will completely dissolve and en
tirely destroy every single sign and
trace of it, no matter how much dan
druff you may have.
You will find, too, that all itching
and digging of the scalp will stop at
once, and your liair will be fluffy, lus
trous, glossy, silky and soft, and look
and feel a hundred times better.
You can get liquid any drug
store. It is inexpensive and never fails
to do the work.— Adv.

lovers of thin city have an opportunity
of hearing the great Sheehan and what
he lias done for opera in this country.
Sheehan had and still has the physique
of a prize athlete. Jlis vocal cords
must be made of steel, if steel could
vibrate so sensitively and so sweetly.
All the other tenors have made hot
house plants of their voices. That of
Joe has grown and flourished in the
open. The only other tenor I know
about who tried to live the natural life
was Campanini, and he suffered from t
because he ltadn't the requisite native
sturdiness. Campanini used to go about
like an average man wearing the usual
amount of clothes and taking just the
ordinary iprecautious, but -his voice
oouklu't stand the custom, and it wore
out long before it should, just when
Campanini was in the prime of life.
Had -Mr. Sheehan gone over to the
operatic enemy he could have been a
very wealthy man; lie could have been
one of the historic singers of his time,
for his voice is of the loveliest char
acter imaginable and Caruso has
ever approached him in the fineness
and surety of his ear. 1 believe it is

German War Pictures
There isn't much novelty about an
exhibition of motion pictures of scenes
and incidents in the European struggle,
but there is decided novelty about an
exhibition that is taken entirely from
the German side of the battle line. In
fact, the Majestic theatre is presenting
the only authentic pictures of the Ger
man side of the conflict now extant.
The fact that the pictures were taken
under the supervision of the Kaiser's
general staff, and that they are now
being presented under the auspices of
the New York Staats-Zeitung attests
to their verity. There will be two com
plete performances at the Majestic
theatre this evening, two to-morrow
afternoon nnd two to-morrow night.
The pictures are graphic, thrilling,
vivid and real. Frightful struggles have
been visualized and actual scenes are
shown. The kaiser is seen directing his
various armies as well as realistic
camp and trench scenes at the front.
The pictures giving the German side
of the gigantic struggle, are said to
show the plain truth and to depict the
struggle as' it really is. The films have

"Under Cover"
"Under Cover," the exciting new
play which has already passed its two
hundredth performance in both New
York and Chicago, will be the attrac
tion at the Majestic, Wednesday after
noon ami evening. When Selwyn & Co.,
who won fame and fortune by spon
soring "Within the Laiw" presented
"Under Cover," in Boston on Christ
mas L>ay, 1913, the piece was unheard
of, yet achieved such instantaneous
success that it established a record for
that citv by playing for thirty-one
weeks. The play is in four acts and
was written by Hoi Cooper Megrue.
The story is of a custom fraud carried
through by persons notable in the so
cial and financial world of New York
and progresses from one excitimg inci
dent to another until a most unexpect
ed culmination is reached. This is a
play to which the ending cannot be
tola, for half the enjoyment arises
from the cra*p of surprise which is
evoked when the truth is revealed. Sol
wyn & Company will send with "Un
der Cover'' an excellent cast of play
ers. The play itself is the thing in this
instance and enjoyment of the piece
docs not depend on the performance of
any one player or set of players.—

At the Orpheum
Sidesplitting is the adjective to use
when trying to describo the exceeding
ly funny black face comedy that Com
fort and King are presenting at the Or
pheum this week and which is entitled
"Coon Town DiVorcons." In brief,
their act is a "legal satire'' composed
of a routine of particularly bright gags
which are sprinkled with vocal inter
polations that are far above the aver
age. The comedian of the duo enters
the lawyer's office complaining about
his wife and at the same time makes
application for a divorce. The rich
comedy is handed out by him when he
tells how she treats him and also when
he gets the big words of the law mixed
up. Tli# comedian later appears on the
scene in exaggerated style, including a
green wig and plays the part of the
wife, la both roles he is exceedingly
funny and lie gets his audiences laugh
ing at everything he says or does.
Comfort and King, who are present
ing this'big comedy hit at the Orpheum
are recognized as being anion ,' the most
clever in their line. Both artist* have
had wide experience in many of the
leading minstrel organizations and
they are indeed funny. One of them
