LETTERS FROM THE PEOPLE.
(Under this heading short letters of In
terest will l)e published when accompa
nied, for publication, by the writer's
name. The Tribune will not be held re
sponsible for opinions here expressed.)
John K. Karr as a Candidute.
Editor of The Tribune:
Sir As one of the miners of this val
ley I wish to express my opinion In re
paid to John R. Farr as a candidate,
what is the record of John B. Karr as a
representative? Simply this one: A rec
ord of unimpeachable Integrity and un
ceasing seal. He has accomplished more
for the workingmen than any of his prede
cessors. Since the day he was elected, his
chief aim has been to aleviate and ele
vate the condition of the working class.
His unprecedented record speaks for it
self. The miner brings home his pay, very
email, and smilingly hands the monoy to
his wife; there Is room for It nil, God
knows. But thanks to John R. Farr.
1 here Is no 12 or 3 for books out of that
pay any more, Mr. Editor. Thousands of
hmes thrughout the state, by the pass
age of the free text bill, have been made
happy. None but a worklngman can tell
how much the working class has been
benefited through the efforts and ac
complishments of John R. Farr In the leg
islature. When a man has won the es
teem of his colleagues; when his opinion Is
uuthority In their deliberations; and his
worth appreciated In their midst. It is
the paramount duty of that legislative
district that sent him there to send him
again. John R. Farr Is an Ideal repre
sentative, and tho workingmen of the dis
trict fully appreciate what he has done
for them, and It Is their duty to elect him
again with an overwhelming majority.

LECTURE ON THE I'OET MILTON
Second of the Series of the University Ex
tension Course-Dealt with the Public
Career of the Poet-News
The second series of the University
extension lectures wus eiven in the
Welsh Calvlnlstic Methodist church
last evening; by Colonel Homer B.
Sprague, Ph. D., of Orange, N. J., who
persued the course on Milton's life.
He dwelt on Milton's public life and
subsequent retirement. During his re
marks he said Milton's life was divided
Into three periods. First his prepara
tory, then about twenty years lapse,
In which he wrote nothing but a few
prose writings, and, lastly, his retire
ment and old age. In 1643 he strolled
away from London to collect a debt of
500 pounds from a man named Powell.
This Powell had a beautiful daughter
who was more used to flattery than
philosophy, and a better Judge of bon
nets than poetry. She was a Royalist;
he a Republican. Yet he fell in love and
married her. She was attracted with
him, the best scholar in England, hand
some and a schoolmaster. What a
combination 'f charms.
In 1(14!) there was a scene which this
planet had never seen before. For
the first time a king Is brought to jus
tice. With dignity he refused to plead.
The case proceeded, and he is sentenced
to die. On Jan. 30 the head of Charles
Stewart, which had worn the crown of
Europe, rolled from the block. The
would-be despot richly deserved his
fate, but It was unpolttic. Pity followed
hate, and the masses went back to roy
alty. The crown was now transferred
to Chnrlcs II, and Milton published a
book on the tenure of kings and mag
istrates. In 1G4U he was appointed
secretary of state. He wrote a treatise
on Salmaslus. Salmasius hud written
against parliament, and they wanted
Milton to answer it. The work was of
prodigious power, and in It he com
pletely annihilated Salmaslus. Milton
had now become totally blind as a re
sult of his arduous labors. He wrote
two sonnets on his blindness, which
were very Itouching. A sonnet was
written by Milton on the massacre at
Piedmont, and during this period
Charles. II was triumphantly en throned.
Opposition to monarchy was now In
vain and Milton was In great danger.
He sought shelter In a friend's home,
and ns he was supposed to be dead, a
mock funeral paraded the streets with
an empty coffin. His property was
swept away. Now came the days of
servitude or loyalty. The days of the
coward, bigot and slave.
Milton next built that stupendous
structure, "Paradise Lost." In 1S71 he
published "Paradise Regained," which
was more symmetrical and less orna
mental, with the exception of Athens.
One day Charles II told Milton that his
blindness was God's punishment.
"Well," said Milton, "if that is the case,
I wus not nearly as bad as your father,
for I only lost my eyes, while he lost

The career of Fanny Rice, now one of
America's foremost comediennes, is an
Illustration of the success that may be
attained by any talented young wo
man who perseveres In the face of ap
parently insurmountable obstacles, and
who, In a calling in which temptations
are ever present, retains her self respect
and consequently gains the esteem of
the entire theater-going public Miss
Rice has been on the Btage but a com
paratively brief time, but her position
Is secure and her popularity unques
tioned. This season the gifted comedi
enne will be seen In the somewhat pre
tentious, though exceedingly humorous
character of Molly Flower in her
latest successful comedy, "Miss Inno
cence Abroad," In which she will be
seen at the Academy of Music on Wed
The attraction to be presented at the
Academy of Music on Friday and Sat
urday evening next, with a special
ladles' and chlldrens' matinee, is the
world-famed spectacular romance,
"The Black Crook." It has been played
more times than any play known to
American theater-goers. The scenery
Is. alone worthy of especial attention,
and when the superb dramatic cast,
the charming ballets, the dazzling cos
tumes and the sumptuous transforma
tion scenes are considered, not to speak
of the numerous European specialties.
It Is eaBlly the most imposing produc
tion that our citizens will have a chance
to witness this season. Its long run at
the Academy of Muslo, New York,
should lend additional Interest to the

1-KO.M THE AL'Ul'KN BULLETIN, MAY 3,
One of the Most Kcinurkuhle Cures
That has been effected In years and for
which the Bulletin can vouch, has just
come to light through the agency of Dr.
Potter's Rheumatic Pills. Thomas Bren
nan, a well known stone cutter of long
standing, is tho fortunate victim of this
wonderful cure. A Bulletin man called at
the home of Mr. Itrennan, 32 Barber street,
and found him only too willing to talk
over his almost miraculous cure. Early
In life he learned the stone cutter's trade,
at which he has worked for the past
thirty years. The exposure and dampness
necessary in his work, soon brought on
an attuck of rheumatism which dated
back twenty- eight years, at Intervals,
ever since. Especially during winters and
springs of each year he has been a pa
tient sufferer, the disease growing more
ueute with each succeeding year, until
ten years ngo he was taken with a most
violent attack of an lntlammatory na
ture, which confined him to the house
that season. Preceding this attack, ev
ery known remedy that was on the mar
ket had been tried, but without effect.
The best locul medical attendance and
specialists hud been called In, but each
succeeding year the pains grew more
acute and painful, until last winter when
he was attacked again he was bo thor
oughly prostrated that he had to remain
In his bed during the entire winter and
could only leave when assisted by mem
bers of his family. He wus helpless to
do anything for himself, and his food had
to be fed to him like a child. Reading in
the Bulletin of the remarkable cure of
Mrs. Ella Nolan, of 209 State street, who
was also a sufferer from inflammatory
rheumatism and had been cured by the
use of a few boxes of Dr. Potter's Rheu
matic Pills, Mr. Brennan sent to the drug
gist for a box and commenced their use at
once. The rest of the story Is told In a
nutshell. The cure was almost lnstan
taneus. From a helpless cripple he Is
now, after less than a month's use, able
to go about the house and walk without
the use of crutch or cane hale, hearty
and vigorous, a perfect picture of manly
In his Interview with the Bulletin re
porter, he said: I cannot say too much
In favor of those pills. They have dono ev
erything for me. I feel as well as I ever
did. Nothing helped me as they did. I
tried all kind of liniments and every known
remedy recommended for rheumatism,
but nothing gave me relief. The pain has
not only left my bones and joints, but I
have an excellent appetite, while before I
took them my stomach was all out of or
der. Now I rest at night undisturbed,
wlthut pain or nche. I can conscien
tiously recommend them to all suffering
from rheumatic troubles.
Dr. Potter's Rheumatic Pills are a rad
ical cure for Rheumatism, Inflammatory
Rheumatism, Gout, Rheumatic Gout,
both acute and chronic, and all diseases
depending upon or having their origin in
the uric and diathesis. Price $UI a box.
