Outier'a orchestra of neven pieces
played the nccoinpaiiinicnts, and Alfred
Wooler' dlreeted the chorus and hoIo
work. The company was made up of
twenty-six performers, and tho chorus
was undoubtedly the best over present
ed at a mlnlstrel performance of home
tnlent In the city.,
The opening overture was tho ICleetric
City Wheelmen's march, composed by
Fred Robinson, and the "Tally Ho"
chorus was sung for an opening. This
was followed by the rendition of "Creole
Helios" by the orchestra, tambos, bones
and chorus. The effort was well re
ceived. The opening solo number was
given by David Owens, assisted by
lAither Thomas, Arthur and Walter
Davis, entitled "My Sweet Kimonn,"
and was accorded a spontaneous en
Tho jesters then began their fun mak
ing, and interspersed a number of
funny jokes throughout the perform
ance. Dolph Hrunlng followed with a
capital rendition of "My Lady Hotten
tot," and for an encoio he sang a verse
In CSerman. It made a lilt. Fred Soft
ley's rodltlon of the ballad "Friends,"
earned for him a number of vegetable
hoquets, and a splendid encore, and he
sang in a faultless manner.
The Electric City Wheelmen nunr
tetto followed with a good selection,
and were compelled to respond to a
double encore. The inimitable Benja
min Franklin Allen, a natural comedian,
pang a negro song that captivated his
friends, nnd they were very generous
with their applause. He was encored.
Luther Thomas, the possessor of a
sweet voice, sang "Wh'cn the Wind
Sighs In the West," and his effort was
thoroughly appreciated and encored.
Tom Stevens, one of the old favorites,
sang "Cm You BUimo Me for Loving
That Man," and Incidentally worked in
a few side-steps that took with the
crowd. He was encored. Walsh and
McDonougb gave a clog dance, and for
an encore danced a waltz clog. Their
specialty was one of the features of the
Goods and Fancy Wash
evening. Barry Davis was unable to

Alfred Wooler rendered "Queen of the
Earth" In his usual artistic style.
Tho audience did not seem to tiro of
Fred Robinson's harmonica selections
nnd ho was accorded a double encore.
His playing received marked attention.
Kmrys Joseph followed with a very
sweet rendition of "Mono. Dear," nnd
was given a deserved encore. Tho vocal
gem of tho evening was "Ultly" Will
lams' singing of "I Got Mine," nnd he
wnn given a double- encore, nnd sang
"1'po 'Qwlnc to Live, Anyhow, 'Till I
The closing number was "nosey
Posey," by Walter Jones and company,
and ho demonstrated his vocal ability
In a clover manner. The entire per
formance was carried out without a
hitch, and tho boys certainly deserved
nil tho compliments they received.
The vnudevlllqj sketch presented by
the Slsson-Wallace company proved to
bo a very ngreeahlc surprise to the
audience, and they were necorded a
very Muttering ovation. Tho members
of the company are certainly clever
people, nnd their act is one of tho best
ever presented in vaudeville. The en

Twentieth Ward Property Owners
Have Another Meeting Con
cerning the Sewer.
Notwithstanding the inclement weath
er there was a large attendance laat
night in Nowickl's hall of Twentieth
ward property owners, who have gone
on record as being opposed to the high
assessment. Messrs. Walsh and Barry,
In the absence of C. T. Boland and the
regular secretary, filled the chairs re
spectively. Director of Public Works
Roche and City Engineer Phillips were
present and went Into details, while the
engineer, by the aid of blue prints, ex
plained the length, depth and cost. He
admitted the estimate was high, and
stated that It could not be less, owing
to the increased cost of pipe and ma
terial and the increased cost in wages.
The officials were tendered u vote or
thanks for their courtesy, and they de
parted. Brief remarks were afterwards made
by Councllmen Coyne and Barrett, who
stated that they stood ready to carry
out the wishes of the citizens. They
were Instructed to have the construc
tion of the sewer delayed.

deformity and disease. Fashion is rcsponsibio for Btiuh
deformities as tho pinched waists of Etnopo and America,
tho tattooed skina of Africa and tho mutilated feet of China.
In the spread of disease fashion has used numerous agents,
but none moro powerful nor moro disastrous than tho trailing
skirt. In tho street this skirt gathers up millions of microbes
and ro-distributcs them in tho chambers of tho homo until tho
carpets nro infested with them, and every occasion of
sweeping and dusting sots thorn circling through tho
atmosphere, ready to bo inhaled and breed disease. If,
when somo victim lics Rtrickcn in tho home, wo could
trace tlio cause of sickness to its sourco wo should
often find that the trail of disease was tho trail of a
Germs arc everywhere. AVo inhale them constantly,
we drink them and wo eat them, and they aro power
less to harm us whilo wo aro in good health. But
when tho vitality of tho body is lowered, a condition
commonly described as "run-down," then tho germ
has a chauco to breed disease in tho bodv. This con
dition of lowered vitality mav occur at anv season, but it is
most common in tho spring, when, universally, men and women
feel weak, run-down and debilitated. Tho method of protec
tion against tho gorms of diseaso suggests itself. If thoy aro
powerless against a healthy body then mako tho body hotlthy.
if impure blood gives them an opportunity to attack tho body,
then purify tho blood.
There is perhaps no other medicine which will so quickly and
thoroughly purify the blood and restore lost physical strength
as Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. Its work can be
measured by the growing appetite, tho sound sleep, the restored
capacity for labor ; and it can bo weighed in the increase of
sound, healthy flesh.
David Duggins, Esq., of Jones, Ohio Co., Ky., writes: "When I
began takitip Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery I had nervous or
gencrrf debility of three years' duration. I took three bottles of the
' Discovery.' During the time I was taking it my sleep became more
refreshing and I gained fifteen pounds in weight, and also gained
strength every day."
It is an axiom that tho greater includes tho less. Tho medi
cine that will cure debility and weakness of years' standing, will
cure the debilitated condition which is so commonly experienced
in the spring of the year. Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Dis
covery cures chronic debility. It cures when all other medi
cines have failed. It gives the appetite for food and the power
to digest and assimilate

"I can truly recommend your medicine as being the best
1 ever used," writes Mrs. Carrie Wolverton, ot iviuu
day, West Va. "I felt all run-down, paius in back,
shoulders and chest; was nervous, felt always tired,
was hardly able to do my housework when I com
menced taking your medicines. After using three
bottles of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery and
one of his ' Favorite Prescription ' I felt quite well and
strong. I can niglily recommend your medicines."
As a blood purifying medicine Dr. Pierce's Golden
Medical Discovery has no equal. It entirely eradi
cates from tho blood the waste matter which corrupts
it. It cures scrolula, sores, eczema, erysipelas, salt
rheum, boils, pimples and other eruptive diseases which aro tho conse
quences of an impure condition of tho blood.
"Over one year ago I wrote to Dr. R. V. Pierce for advice," says Mrs. R. M.
Clites, of 1205 Williams Street, Omaha, Nebr. "Had been doctoring with two
of my home phj-siciaus for Wood poison. They did not do me much good
only for a short time. Dr. Pierce recommended his medicines and I took three
bottles of his 'Golden Medical Discovery' and two of 'Favorite Prescription,'
and now I feel better than for more than ten years. I am so very thankful that
I heard of Dr. Pierce's medicines ; I cannot thank him too much for his kind
aclvice to me. Two of my brothers' wives have taken his ' Favorite Prescrip
tion ' for female weakness and have been greatly benefited. I recommend it to
all my lady friends as the best medicine on earth for ailing womankind."
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery is especially commended as
a lonio because of its entire freedom from alcohol and narcotics.
Many tonics owo the good feelings they produce for a time to tho
alcohol they contain. They only stimulate. Golden Medical Discov
ery really strengthens. It gives new blood and new lite, and so
re-news tho health and strength of run-down men and women.
Sick people, especially those suffering from chronic diseases,
are invited to consult Dr. Pierce, by letter, free, and so obtain,
without charge, the opinion of a specialist on their ailments.
All correspondence strictly confidential. Address Dr. R. V.
Pierce, Buffalo, N. Y.
Sometimes a dealer tempted by tho little moro profit paid on
tho salo of less meritorious medicines will offer tho customer a substitute as
being "just as good "as the "Discovery." It is hotter for him because it
pays better, but it is not as good for you, if you want the medicine that has
cured others, and which you believe will cure you.
