A moderate-sized, but very appre ciative audi.'n:e greeted Kerr Anton Schott and Astoria's local musical celebrities at the opera house last night. A triglot rendition of famous musical compositions by muMcIans of the first rank does not often come to Astoria -and deserved a packed house. The German and Scotch songs were a delight to the musically Inclined, to which class most of the audience evi dently belonged. The first piece was encored but did not respond. Herr Schott was called out for a second Scotch song. The ap plause at the conclusion of Miss Hob son's song was deafening, and though she held back with.' her usual modesty. she was finally persuaded to respond. In fact every selection met with great applause and an encore was insisted upon. The memory of Herr Schott's magnificent voice will, long remain with those who had the great priv ilege of hearing him last night. The feeling and expression manifested In Mr. Belcher's solo, added to his clear ringing notes, made his effort one of the most pleasing of the evening. Many of the officers of the cruiser Philadel phia were present. WHAT OCR FLAG STANDS FOR. Wherever the Amei lean flag Is raised In token of sovereignty.

When your stomuch gets out of order, causing you to belch after eating, or when you are so nervous that you toss about all night, unable to sleep, you should cer tainly try It, because It will strengthen your stomach, steady your nerves, and Induce sound, healthy sleep, and for Indigestion, constipation and biliousness there Is nothing to equal It.
