Doctors Lave found by erperieaee
that no medicine for colds and influ-
enza can be depended upon for full ef-
fectiveness until the liver is made thor-
oughly active. That is why the first
step in the treatment is the new, nausea-
less colomel tablets callcd Calotabs,
which are free from the sickening and
weakening effects of the old style calo-
mel. Doctors also point out the fact
that an active liver may go a long way
towards preventing influenza and is one
of the most important factors in en-
abling the patient to successfully with-
stand an attack and ward off pneu-

14, 1805, "I went to Ford's. As every-
body known, the play was 'Our Ameri-

were giving vent to perhaps theli Srst

was during the dairy scene wlien they

Mr. Emerson, taking the part of Dun-

point. Twice she said to him: 'Why,
can't you see It?' And he replied: 'No,
I rawn't see it.' At this moment the
Presidential pnrty entered, passing
around the south side of the gallery to
enter the box. The play was suspend-

the audience having risen with one ac-
cord and cheered enthusiastically.
After some time Georgiana sniil, with j

"It was ahont 10:30 when the pis-

exclamation which I did not under-

has popularly been accredited to him.
Had he done anything of that kind I
believe he would have been mobbed
before he could have escaped. As It
was, J. B. Steward, a man of athletic
build, sprang onto the stage and was

I walked along G street. The morn-

streets, almost in front of Epiphany
church, I met a small squad of cav-

officers and civilians on foot. The
band was proceeding quietly and with
an evident desire to avoid public no-
