If the fire bell should ring would
you run and stop it or go and help to
put out the fire? It is much the same
way with a cough. A cough is a dan
ger signal as much as a fire bell. You
should no more try to suppress it than
to stop a fire bell when it is ringing,
but should cure the disease that causes
the coughing. This can nearly always
be done by taking Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy. Many have used it
with the most beneficial results: It is
especially valuable for the persistent
cough that so often follows a bad
cold or an attack of the grip. Mrs.
Thomas Beeching, Andrews, Ind.,
writes: "During the winter my hus
band takes cold easily and coughs and
coughs. Chamberlain's Cough Rem
edy is the best medicine for breaking
up these attacks and you cannot get
him to take any other." Obtainable

A half million dollars worth

Farm work is the hardest

wear out, shafts bend and

pull hard, gears rattle, smash,
bang and crash, paint gets dull.

Tzigani Troupe off Acrobats, featured in the Aborn Opera Company, at the
Parmele Theatre Saturday Evening, December 16th.
Morocco is hardly our idea of a
summer resort, but the members of
the Tzigani Troupe of Arab acrobats
consider it just the right place to
spend the dog days. Consequently,
after the close of the Aborn Opera
Company's tour each spring, young
Slayman Ali, commander of the Tzi
ganis, leads his Bedouins aboard a
ship Morocco bound. This year they
returned to America late in the sum
muer, and are again appearing with
the Aborn organization in its spectacu
lar production of "The Bohemian
Girl," which will be seen at the Par
mele theatre, December 16th.
They belong to the Berber Tribe
of Arabs who inhabit the north coast
of Africa. There is a theory that this
was one of the lost tribes of Israel, as
their language is Semitic. However,
if they really were the sons of Ham
who wandered away from the other
Israelite tribes, they did not cling to
their ancient Hebrew customs and re
ONE NIGHT ONLY
ligion, but adopted the Mohamedan
faith and the ways of living of Ara
bian peoples with whom they have
mingled for thousands of jears.
Slayman Ali, the young chief of this
band, is the son of a Shiek, which is
the same as a prince in Europe. His
father is absolute monarch of a prin
cipality in north Africa, and this is
the reason the son is able to obtain
permission to bring his Troupe to
America each 'year. They always
bring with them a large supply of
kus-kus, which is their principal native
food made from wheat, and which is
not obtainable outside of Morocco.
They prefer their 'food preparation,
using pure olive oil instead of animal
fats for cooking, and are fond of rice
and all kinds of vegetables. , . '
They use meat sparingly, lamb be
ing their favorite. ' They smoke Turk
ish tobacco, -but do not take any alco-hlic-
drink, every member of the
Troupe bein a "teetotaler."

All boys and some girls of their
race are trained in athletics from the
time they are eight or ten years,
which probably accounts for their good
health. This early and continued
training coupled with the inborn agil
ity of all Arabs makes them the most
remarkable "ground and lofty tum
blers" in the world, appearing to ab
solutely suspend the law of gravi
tation in some of their stunts. They
practice from one to three hours each
day, all the year around, thus keeping
their muscles "tuned up" like steel
bands and their constitutions hardy.
Consequently, they seldom have "to
lay off" from , a performance. Dur
ing the six years they have spent with
the Aborn Opera Company in "The
Bohemian. Girl," only three members
have lost one. performance each on
account of bruises, but not one has
ever had to stay away from the thea
tre on account of any internal jllnefr.
