MINUS Jefferson de Angelis, "The
Deauty Spot." which came to the
Heltlg laat evening to round out the
week, would assume no Important pro
portions, deslpte the fact that It la
beautifully mounted and scenlcally ar
tistic. Truth to tell, the only apparent
beauty spots In the production are Its
pretty girls, lavish costuming, the ex
cellent singing; volco of George J. Mao
Farlane. and the effervescent comedy
of that mirth-maker. Jeff, himself. The
latter'a style and the flavor ot hla hu
mor are of the unctuoua and genuinely
droll sort. He emanates that elusive
quality called personality with every
little movement. He la animated by
intelligent Intentions, and makes his
greatest bid for favor with his ap
parently spontaneous Invention of
ridiculous by-play and Innuendoa,
which he geta over like a miniature
Niagara- Of course there's a bit of a
plot, but It Is lost very early In the
proceedings. General Samovar, the
character De Angelis plays. Is a Rus
sian official, who Is attached to Franca
In a diplomatic and matrimonial way.
He has wedded an artists model who
hss posed for a soap poster clothed In
a bath tub "and a garment aa dia
phanous as an ungratified wish." She
has a mole on her left knee which has
a distressing habit of punctuating
everybody's conversation, and as well
getting Into all her pictures, of the un
d raped, rather than the framed variety.
That's the plot, and Ita unraveling lies
In the. combined efforts of all concerned
to keep the General from finding out
that they all know about the beauty
spot, while the General raises con
siderable disturbance on his own ac
count about what he suspicions but
cannot be sure. One of De Angelis'
biggest hits of the evening Is his Il
lustration In pantomime of the methods
ot assassination he has prepared for
the artist who painted the soap poster.
George J. Mac Farlane. who playa the
second lead, baa a magnificent baritone
voice of splendid big volume and rare
timbre. His "Creole Daye" was aa es
pecially well-liked number with last
nlgbt'a audience. An excellent bit of
refined comedy Is afforded by Arvid
Paulson as a Dutch youth. Florence
Martin la personally attractive and en
deavors bravely to sing. In the role of
the General's daughter. Nadlne.
The Beauty Spot" will be aeen again
thla evening and tomorrow evening,

U Tonic Treatment Cored Her.
The value of the tonic treatment of
nervous troubles by the use of Dr. Wil
liams' Pink 1111s lies in the fact that
these pills do not stimulate the already
exhausted nerves to keep up their wore
for a time longer but that they replace
the depleted nervous energy.
Alias Susan M. Kerr, of Xo. 9 Mor
rill street, Trentou, Mo., who, tried
this treatment says:
"Ever since I was a child I bad been
troubled with nervousness. My parents
first noticed it when I waa about five
? rears old. They thought it was noti
ng serious but after I commenced go
ing to school, I became so much worse
that I bad to drop my studies. There
was a continual jerking all over my
body. I had no control over ray limbs
and could not hold anything for fear of
dropping it. My left side was sort of
paralyzed and the left aide of my face
was constantly ierking. I could not
write or even cold a pen or pencil. The
least noise or disturbance excited me so
that I would go all to pieces. I was a
nervous wreck and always afraid of
falling. My stomach was very weak. -I
waa confined to bed for a day or so at
"I waa treated by several doctors.
One said I had nervousness, another St.
Vitus dance, while one said I had par
alysis of the face. None of them gave
me much relief, although all of them
said they could cure me. After I bad
been sick for a long time I gave up all
doctors' treatment and began taking
Dr. Williams' Ftnk Pills as advised by '
a friend. After I had taken the pills a
while I could begin to use my hands
and legs. I gave the pills a steady trial
and have not been troubled since. Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills gave me new blood
