10 CHILDREN m mm mm CHi« DEBATES MORALS OF Clone'confinement in school during the past winter, 'overstudy perhaps, aw attack of the jjrip or tonsditia, somv one of these things is doubtlerm respon* fiible for the condition of the cflild who ihows a decline in health now. What are the symptoms? Pallor and languor, a fickle appetite, dark rings under the eyes, broncliial colds. Very often the best efforts of the family physician fail in such cases and the condition of the child causes the inosfc intense anxiety. Cod-liver oil, sooften prescribed, generally fails because the weak atoniach ia unablo to digest fats. Try this treatment. Before breakfast each morning give the child the juice of half an orange. After the noon meal give one of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. Keep this up for a few days and then give one of the pills after the evening meal also. Weigh the child before beginning the treatment and agaiirafter two weeks. An increase in ·weight of from two to five -pounds will chow you that you are on the right track at last. Care ia necessary in the * Matter Is Referred to BishODS, diet of the patient and it will be well to send to the Dr. Williams Medicine Co., Schenectady, N.

Though the white tops of the Rlngllng Brothers' circus will not be erected In Indianapolis until early tomorrow morn- ins,-- the - -advance-guard " - of "agCTrtB" contractors have alrejUly arrived to pre/pare for the coining of the elephants. A number of circus men reached here last night and more will come today, each having a different mission to perform in connection with the big amusement enterprise, m L. Wappensteln, one of the two officials known as "twenty-four-hour men" because they are always a clay In advance of the show's arrival, will make a survey of the circus grounds today, in- ·Heating at just what points each of the twoiitv-se.\-ii tents of Klngllngville will be erected tomorrow. Ho will consult with the Hig Four Railroad officials concerning the exact place of unloading tho four show trains, and in conference with the police department will decide upon tho street parade route, which will be announced in tonjnrrow's issue of The Star. He will purchase hay, grain and bran for the more than 700 horses of the Kingllng show, the elephants, camel team and zebras, and will also pay a visit to tho Ice, coal and Wood dealers. -And these are but a few of the duties which this official must perform within a period of from six to eight hours. Use Trucks to Market. Another circus official is A. L. Webb, chief of tho commissary department. Jt is he who does tho marketing for the immense circus family, using for his market baskets a number of teams and'mot or trucks.

Votes were cast for ten person^ nominated by a committee. President William E. Jenkins, librarian of Indiana 1 University, presided. He discussed the achievements of the Little Theater In Its styort existence and declared that it "has made important social history." The report of the treasurer showed a small deficit. Wants Suitable House. W. O. Bates, the retiring secretary, made an extended report, which was received with applause. He recommended an "adequate house for our performances" and "ft business manager rather than an art director." "After one year of incubation and another of struggle for existence, the Jjlttle Theater' of Indiana seems in a fair way to become a permanent and useful factor In this community," said Mr. Bates. "This result^ias been achieved by a series of experiments, in some cases as harrowing to the participants as they were salutary to the undertaking.; "The retiring directors hand over to their successors a public, measurably awakened and interested as to the possibilities of a community theater, a company of nearly 100 players and other stage workers more or less skilled and nearly all vividly interested In the work, a plant for stage-equipment, lights, curtains, costumes, etc., costing over 1600, and a bursting granary of experience as to things worth doing as well as things better left undone. Ideal Not Reached. "But while the time seems not yet ripe for realizing the flnel deal held up to us by Lady Gregory and reiterated by Hector Fuller of a Hoosler theater, pro- . duclng-only- Hoosier- plays- -wlth-Hoosier players, the marked favor shown such works of contemporary interest and authorship as 'The Glittering Gate,' 'Overtones,' 'Dawn,' 'The Dark Lady of the Sonnets' and 'How He Lied to Her Husband' affords proof that 'the resent eye praises the present object,' "It seems to me our six months' experience has demonstrated that success in this particular community Is not, neces- sarilypbasped upon the assumption that a little theater must be a 'high brow' affair, making a fad of new-stage mechanics and producing only plays that have no prospect of commercial returns.
