Mail Tribune 100

Dec. 8, 1914

The Rose Society vaudeville show at the Page theater Monday night was a distinct success, from start to finish it possessed the polish one sees in professional, but seldom in amateur, performances. A standing room only house greeted the opening night, but rarely the show lagged, and now and then a joke missed. "The best amateur performance in the history of Medford," was the verdict.

The surprise of the evening was "Pop" Gates. Unexpected histrionic ability cropped out here in the opening skit. He was cleverly assisted by Miss Josephine Root and Fletcher Fish and Mrs. Ed Hanley, who took the role of the servant girl, making a "fall" that was a classic, though dangerous. In this skit, Miss Root and Mr. Gates engaged in a well-handled love affair. Evan Reams was billed to appear in this playlet, but failed to appear.

The Rogue River Pippins, an octette composed of Messrs. George Gates, Carter Brandon, Herman Prucker, Noel Lindley, Dolph Phipps, James Vance and Theodore Vance, Jr., sang a tuneful number.

Mrs. George T. Wilson for the third number gave a reading from Gilbert Parker's "The Lane That Hath No Turning." It was a difficult number and a credit to her art was giving close attention from the audience.

Miss Carolyn Andres sang "My Melancholy Babe," assisted by Cousin Middlebusher. The sweet voice of Miss Andrews showed to advantage in this number, but her distinct success was made in the cabaret scene with a classic Greek dance.

Get a small package of Hamburg Breast Tea, or as the German folks call it, "Hamburger Brust Thee," at any pharmacy. Take a tablespoonful of the tea, put a cup of boiling water upon it, pour through a sieve and drink a teacup full at any time during the day or before retiring. It is the most effective way to break a cold and cure grip, as it opens the pores of the skin, relieving congestion. It also loosens the bowels, thus driving a cold from the system.

Try it the next time you suffer from a cold or the grip. It is inexpensive and entirely vegetable, therefore safe and harmless.
