It is vouchsafed to but few of ns to break
down the barrier between the seen and
unseen world, and do before an audience
in a brilliantly lighted room those feats of
the marvelous which were in old times
associated with d irkness and mystery, it
not crime itself, and which have com
manded the interest and fascinated the
imagination of men, women and children,
alike from the earliest times. Kellar,
easily tbe first of modern magicians, is to
appear on tbe 13th day of October fresh
from a long and triumphant summer
season in Daly's New York Theatre, and
with the same performance and company
which then and there won such hearty
praises from the critical audiences. Con- I
spicuous among the features which he will
introduce here for the first time are to be
these marvels of the :irt of the modern
magician: "Flyto, "Astarte, the Maid of
tbe Moon," who dances upon nothing;
"Out of Sight, or the Phantom Bride:"
"Cagliostro, or the Ca.-sadega Propaganda;"
"Karmos,"in which Mrs. Kellar assists
him in an absolutely unapproachable exhi
bition of thought transmission; his own
Davenport seance, which has never been
equalled; his slight-of-hand tricks which
are absolutely new, and last and most
wouderful of all—as may well infer from
its name—"Oh,"' in which without advan
tageou aid Kellar causes a living, breath
ing human being to disappear in a flash
and lo vanish into thin air under the van
eyes of the audience, and that too on a
brilliantly lighted stage.
ROBERT DOWRtSO —TUESDAY, OCT. 17th.
Robert Downing, the American traged
ian is one of the successful actors who
maintain in private lite a popularity as
emdearing as the esteem in whicn they are
held as actors. In his own home, Wash
ington, D.C., he is tho recipent of unusunl
social honars, and throughout the country
he has already taken a warm place in the
hearts of those who are brought in contact
with stage folks once occupied by John
McCullough. Mr Downing is a gentleman
of refined nature, scholary tastes, and has
withal an innate amiability and compan
lonableness ot temperment which attract
to him the choice spirits of the Bohemian
world—artists, writers, and professional
men of education. In this connection ic is
worthy of note that Mr. Browning is dis
tinctively a man of the people. Llis career
upon the stage has been t very vucceesful
ono. He bos accumulate a handsome
fortune from h'u business, which must be
tuken as an evidence that the people ap
preciate him and that the si- uard drama
has not deteriorated. Mr. Browning is a
inafi very domestic in his tastes and habits
He has an interesting family, and one of
the most beautiful country places on the
hills overlooking the Potomac, surround
ing the Capital of the nation. His wife,
know to the stage as Eugenie Blair, is a
handsome and attractive woman, highly
cultivated, a southern girl by birth, and is
an actress of extraordinary ability. She
has supported somo of the best tragedians
in America. Mr. Downing's play in Butler
will be the Gladiator, in which he has been
the most succes>ful since John McCullough.

James Goss, of Punx*utawney, has a dog
that does not expire for acy slight or in
sufficient causes. One day about three
weeks ago this canine, whose name is Bob,
was run over by a locomotive and appar
ently killed. He was crushed and broken
almost beyond recognition. Life, however
was not extinct, for the automatic action
of the sensory ganglia commonly called
"breathing" was still kept up. But the
dog's friends pittied him, and believing
that ho conld not live, resolved to put him
out of his misery. Two executioners were
accordingly appointed, who took Bob to
the fair grounds, and shot him full of holes.
Th'jn they started home, but they had gone
only a short distance when one of them
happened to look around, and to their in
tense surprise, Bob was jogging along
after them. Having used all their car
tridges, a club was procured and poor
Bob's head was boatenjinto a jelly. He
was dead this time, sure. And they left
him there alone and went their way. Two
days later, however. Bob turned up again,
and there was great rejoicing in the house
hold. lie is living still and doing well,
and it would take a good deal of money to
buy that dog.

the finest table and deiry salt ever brought

at Klinglers. One barrel is worth two of
any other salt sold in Butler. Many ol" the
best families have bought a barrel for
familiy use. because it is superior to any
table salt sold in bags. If you have "a

barrel of coarse common salt. Don't take

—The central figure of the new novel,
"Tanis, the Sang-Digger," by Amelie
Hives, is another of those strange, high
etrnng and passionate females that the
author is so fond of representing as hero
ines, and after a reader has followed Tunis
through her love adventures, the verdict
must be that this low-born and wretched
"poor white," this long-limbed, handsome
digger of ginseng root, is a creature of
intense facination and remarkable charact
eristics. Tunis is a big, fresh and lusty
young savage of the Virginia moutnains,
with the figure of a goddest, which when
we first meet her is screened from the
breezes and the gaze of man by a single
garment. Iler long hair sweeps about her
like a veil, and she roams the woods in the
wild and vigorous manner of the antelope.
She is beloved by a young giant of her
own class, a mammoth brute, possessing a
splendid physical beauty, and " who exerj
cises an almost inresistable spell over her.
Her battle against tbo passion and tyranny
of this man is the motive ol the story.
She knows him for a haertless be
trayer of girls, and the one shining quality
of her character is her virtue, which sus
tains her at all times, which teaches her
to despise the character of men liko him.
and to demand from a lover deep respect
and constancy as well as passion. The
big brute that worships her is mentally
and morally unable to comprehend this
part of Tunis' nature, and wo find them
opposed to each other in a most savage
and interesting battle. Sam, the reckless
lover is bound to gain full control of Tanis
without going into any argument over the
matter, while Tunis, although on fire with
love for him, sees him in all his weakness
and wickedness, and knows that if he gets
her he will love her for a day and a night
and afterward loathe her. And it is only
by a wretched scheme on the part of .S'a in
that Tanis is driven into marrying him.
She becomes a martyr to save the
friends that have been kind to her, and at
the end she bows to fate and yiolds herself
np to Sam, because she is powerless to
fight him longer. The story is told in
the sharp, aggressive and often dazzling
stvle peculiar to Miss Hives. She describes
the scenes in which her characters move
with her customery poetic facility, and
probably the most dramatic dialogue that
she has ever written is that which passes
between her hero and heroine in this book.
A large element of the public will not
accept Miss Hives as representative of that
which is healthy *nd excellent in litcra
ure, but the number is small that will
argue against her ability to attract "and
hold tho attention by" inventing strong
characters and putting them through an
absorbing series of emotions aud adven
tures. "Tanis, tho Sang-Digger'' will
surely bo regarded with interest by the
reading public. Town Topics Publishing

Cannot always be cured, but a
I properly fitting Truss will do
more toward curing you than any
thing else. A small rupture is
more dangerous than a large one
but is more readily held in place.
Quite a number of persons who
have been fitted by us have been
entirely cured, but this is not al
ways the case. The sooner we
have them visit us after finding
they are ruptured the more hope
of a complete cure. We make a
specialty of Trusses for both
ladies and gentlemen, and give di
rections for private measurement
for the former. All cases consid
ered strictly private. Buying
Trusses by mail from some person
who says he can cure you is on a
paralell with the number of cures
there are for consumption. If you

do for you.
