When Your Fiftieth
Birthday Comes
will you have the sound heart, steady nerves and
good digestion of your younger days?
Many men and women reach the prime of life,
burdened with stomach trouble, headaches, consti
pation, nervousness, heart flutter, etc., and fre
quently the cause is the drug, caffeine, in the coffee
they drink.
\on can quickly tell if coffee is injuring your
health by stopping it ten days and using
This delicious, pure food-drink contains no caf
feine nor any other harmful ingredient. It is whole
some and invigorating, with a snappy flavour very
like that of the Old Gov't Javas.
And Instant Postum is so easy to make. Put a
level teaspoonful in a cup and add hot water—
that's all.
The convenience of Instant Postum is seen at a
glance. Sold in 30c and 50c tins. Some prefer
Postum Cereal —the original form, which must be
well boiled, 15c and 25c packages.
Grocers sell both kinds, the flavour is equally
delicious and the cost per cup is about the same.

Well-known Local Druggist Says Every
body Is Using Old-time Recipe of
Sage Tea and Sulphur
Hair that loses its color and lustre,
or when it fades, turns gray, dull and
lifeless, is caused by a lack of sulphur
in the hair. Our grandmother made up
a mixture of Tea and Sulphur to
lteep her locks dark and beautiful, and
thousands of women and men who value
that even eolor, that beautiful dark
shade of hair which is so attractive, use
only this old-time recipe.
Nowadays we get this famous mix
ture by' asking at any drug store for a
50-eent bottle of "Wyeth s Sage and
Sulphur Compound," which darkens the
hair so naturally, so evenly, that nobody
can possibly tell it has been applied.
Besides, it takes off dandruff, stops
scalp itching and falling hair. You just
dampen a sponge or soft brush with it
and draw this through your hair, tak
ing one small strand at a time. By
morning the gray hair disappears; but
what delights the ladies with Wyeth's
Sage and Sulphur is that, besides beau
tifully darkening the hair after a few
applications, it alau brings back the
gloss and lustre and gives it an ap
pearance of abundance.—Adv.
Will Give Handel's "Samson" at Ma
jestic on April 29, Assisted by Rus
sian Symphony Orchestra and New
York Soloirts
Elaborate preparation* are now be
ing made for the twentieth Spring Mu
sic Festival ot tne Harrisburg Choral
Society, which will be held in the Ma
jestic theatre on Thursday, April 29.
On this occasion the society will cele
brate its twentieth anniversary. It
was organized in 1895 ;iud has con
tinued its activities continuously from
that date. For eighteen years it was
under the direction of Dr. W. W. Gil
christ, of Philadelphia. Two years ago
Dr. Gilchrist was compelled to relin
quish the conductorship 011 account of
ill health and since that date the con
ductor has been Dr. J. Fred Wollo, of
Bethlehem, noted for his noble work in
connection with the Bach Choir and
Bach Festival.
The society numbers about two hun
dred and fifty. It nas been rehearsing
all winter Handel's magnificent ora
torio, "Samson." This work is con
sidered by many as Handel's master
piece; is most tuneful and immensely
dramatic. Dr. Wolle is delighted with
the work and the society, ami, on April
29, expects to surpass last year's con
cert. This is setting a high standard.
In the afternoon the Russian Sym
phony Orchestra, of New York, which
captivated its audience last year, will
give an orchestra concert. This orches
tra consists of about forty musicians
under the able conductorship of Modest
Altschuler. The program, which will
be announced later, includes many fa
vorite selections and several fine solos.
The afternoon concert will begin at 3
o'clock, so as to enable teachers and
pupils of the public schools to attend, i
The choral concert will begin at 8.15 j
in the evening. At this concert the '
Choral Society will be assisted bv the j
Russian Symphony Orchestra and the
following distinguished New York so
loists: Miss Marie Stoddart, soprano;
Miss. Marie Morrissey, contralto;
George Harris, Jr., tenor, and Wilfred
Glenn, bass.
"Greatest Show on Earth" Booked to

The thin-blooded fellow who has

i the presentation of the new, inagnifi-
I cent, spectacular pageant, Lallah
! Kookh. in which 1,250 people take
! part and in which 300 musicians are
! heard playing upon every known kind

A Curious Error
The Bev. Dr. Edward Everett Hale
told how a curious error crept into the
translation of the Lord's Prayer into
the Delaware Indian tongue. The
English translator had as an assistant
an Indian who knew English. "What
is 'hallow' in Delaware?" asked tho
translator. The Indian thought he said
"halloo" and gave him the equivalent.
Therefore, the Delaware version of tho
Lord's Prayer reads, "Our Father, who
art in heaven ,hallooed be thy name.''
