HUSH held sway over the whole house last night as the audience sat tensely watching the picture "The Worn- Me" at the Post theater. Even the orchestra had stopped to watch the picture and Lizzie and her friend Mabel who up until' this time had kept up a steady chatter about what he said and what she said had settled into tense attitudes with fast working jaws biting into Wrigley's very own. Just as the good looking hero folded the better looking heroine in his manly arms in that part of the picture before he causes her no end of sorrow and trouble, everyone was interested in the picture and had given up trying to find out what lt was the orchestra thought it was playing. But the satisfaction was not to last, for at the critical moment, when soft tearful music should have been the order of the day, the orchestra banged into one of the popular jazz pieces. Mabel jumped half out of her seat at the sudden way in which the music started, exclaiming, "My Gawd, Lizzie, why will they ruin the picture?" from Michigan cities have been guests at the Post Tavern: P.

The men failed to catch the fruit and then Charles threw up a rotten banana. This was caught and promptly thrown back. Charles' younger brother, Pete, then threw another rotten banana to one of the fellows, who caught It, the former edible product smashing in his hand. He threw it back the ban-na struck Pete in the eye, which quickly swelled up and turned black and blue. The lad's father, Vincent Spaniola, then called up the sheriff's office and Under Sheriff Glenn Dilley responded. The men on the roof had their outfit and materials on the land back of Bert Porter's meat market No. 2, which is located in the south part of the Spaniola building, between the fruit store and the furniture stone, and as he owned the For Itching Eczema, Old Sores and Piles "1 sruarantee my ointment," mjs Peterson of Buffalo, "to cure eczema: to sti: tbe itching at onco and nnv reliable druggist will cheerfullv refund your money if PETERSON'S OINTMENT doesn't do everything I t;ay it will do."
