THE CIRCUS AND
THEN THE DELUGE
Large Crowd at the Circu3 Last Night
Gets Soaked in Drenching Rain
that Visits the City.
From Saturday's Daily.
Last night the tents of the Camn-
bell-Bailey-IIutchinson circus were
well filled with the amusement seek
ers of the' city and in the,midst of
the performance when the main tent
had been well packed with people,
one of the heaviest rain storms of
the season broke and in a few sec
onds the tent resembled a seive as
the water poured in on the hapless
spectators and men and women alike
suffered from the effects . of the
The tent offered but little resist
ance to the driving rain and the
spectators started out to attempt to
reach the city or other shelter. The
chaotic scenes that ensued were real
ly laughable had not it been for the
fact that no one had time to enjoy
them, everyone being Intent on try
ing to reach safety and a dry place.
'When the storm finally ceased, the
bedraggled crowd found that ' the
streets and sidewalks were a mass of
water and mud and this completed
the discomfort of those who were un
fortunate enough to be at the circus.
Aside from the discomforts of the
storm, the performance was a very
credible one and the company proved
much better than had been anticipat
ed and especially in their acrobatic
and tumbling acts.
The show people found the best
business hi this city of any they have
played to for some time and were
well pleased with the results of their
visit here in every way.
Our manner of living makes us
very susceptible to colds and a suc
cession of colds causes chronic ca
tarrh, a loathsome disease with which
it is estimated that ninety-fl ve per
cent of our adult population aro af
fiictd. If you would avoid chronic
catarrh, you must avoid colds, or.
having contracted a cold, get rid of
it as quickly as possible. Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy is highly recom
mended as a cure for colds and can
be depended upon.

A Grateful Letter
"To say that I feel twenty-five
years younger, twenty-five years
healthier and twenty-five years
stronger expresses what Tanlac has
done for me beter than any other
way I can put it," said George D.
Shaw, veteran of the Civil war, who
now lives at 321 Walnut street,
"I am now seventy-eight years old
and I don't hesitate to say I have
never known a medicine to equal
Tanlac. For fifteen years I was sub
ject to attacks of indigestion that
were so bad at times I would have
to lay up for a week or two. For a
long time I lived on crackers and
milk alone as nothing else agreed
"When I started on Tanlac I
weighed only one hundred and seven
teen pounds and my days were
thought to be numbered. I've been
so wonderfully built up, I now weigh
one hundred and forty-three pounds
and my stomach is as sound as a
dollar. In fact, I believe I could eat
the old army rations without it hurt
ing me in the least.
"I never miss a chance of saying
a good word for Tanlac and I would
like to urge the boys of ihe "Sixties"
who are not feeling right to give it a
trial, for I am sure it would put them
in line again just as it has me. For
a man of my age to have no physical
ailment, to be well and strong and
enjoy life as he did twenty-five years
ago, is. certainly something to be
thankful for and there is nothing too
good I can say for Tanlac."

It is in trying conditions like that
related beloSv by Mrs. Geo. L. North
of Naples. N. Y., that proves the
worth of Chamberlain'3 Colic and
Diarrhoea Remedy. "Two years ago
last summer," she says, "our little
boy had dysentary. At that time we
were living in the country eight miles
from a doctor. Our son was taken ill
suddenly and was about the sickest
child I ever saw. He was in terrible
pain all the time and passed from one
convulsion into another. I sent my
husband for a doctor and after he
was gone thought of a bottle of
Chamberlain's Colic and Diarrhoea
Remedy in the cupboard. I gave him
some of it and he began to improve
at once. By the time the doctor ar
rived, he was out of danger."
