Marta ', Golden, well-known
vaudeville, and stock actress,
who is at Pantages this week
in "Good Night, Nurse," a"
sketch from her own pen, has
adopted a baby. Marta's hus
band, who llv.es In Los Angeles,
has been trying to get her to
leave the stage. Some time ago
he wrote to her in a joking way
and said: "Adopt a baby from
some home and domesticate?"
While playing in Butte, Mont.,
a few weeks ago Miss Golden
(her real name is Marta Duffy)
decided to get the baby. "We
saw an ad on the morning we
were leaving Butte," explained
Miss Golden. "It asked for a
home for this abandoned baby.

signed before our train left." -

Miss Golden gets back to Los
Angeles she will leave the stage

Friends of Rupert have been hard
at work in his behalf and have finally,
through Attorney-General Daugherty,
obtained his pardon. '

Ferdinand Fink, the brother of
Leonid, is an artist. In his letter he

! RUB BACKACHE!
Back hurts you? Can't straighten
up without sudden pain, sharp aches
and twinges? Now listen! That's
lumbago, sciatica, or maybe from a
strain, and you'll get relief the mo
ment you rub your back with sooth
ing, penetrating St. Jacob's Oil. Noth
ing else takes out soreness, lameness
and stiffness so quickly. You simply
rub it on your back, and out comes
the pain. It is harmless, and doesn't
burn the skin.
Limber up! Don't suffer! Get a
small trial bottle of old, honest St.
Jacob's Oil from any drug, store, and
after using it just once you'll forget
that you ever had backache, lumbago
or sciatica, because your back will
never hurt, or cause any more misery.
It never disappoints, and has been
recommended for 60 years. Adv.
