high hats remove them daring »;hea f rical

not particularly felt in the Butler Opera
House, as the seats slope toward the stage,
giving those in tho rear an occasional
glimpse of wtnt is going on back of the
footlights, 3ut in the chnrches it often
happens that a towering head goar shuts
off preacher, pulpit and all, and makes
heaven itsoli' soem too far off to bother
—W. A. Fisher has purchased the

—The scholars who attended the schoo
taught by Thomas Herri* in Butler f.om
1839 to 1852 will hold a reunion in the old

—At a weddiuit to occur in Meadville
four ministers, with a Bishop at the head,
have been engaged on the .splicing job. It

for quite a spell.
—Says a Rhode Island paper: "The
fact is well known that the Pie Lelt lios
wholly north of Masoa and Dixon s line,
Some ono elso has defined the pie belt as
rnnniDg the length of New England, then
westward through New York and Pennsyl
vania, and so on to the great grain region
west of the Mississip )i.
—The cold weather of last week mado
the blue birds seek shelter. A farmer
lately told us that after warm weather el
in last Spring ho sawed a hollow limb off
a largo apple tree in his orchard, and that
fourtoen dead blue birds dropped out of it.
They crawled in a knot hole to escape a
blizzard and had cither been frozen or
smothered. "
—The roads throughout the county are
reported as being in a horrible condition
this spring. Surely the farmers should get
stirred up and tako some action that will
lead to batter roads for their own use.
When the roads dry uu, would it not be a
good idea for the Supervisors to put their
scrapers on and follow this by running a
heavy roller over the roai. This would
make the roads good at least one month
before they wonld be otherwise —Ex
—The word "cigar" is of Spanish origin,
and is from cigarra, meaning, grasshopper.
Tobacco was first raised in gardens.
Cigarra! is Spanish for garden, meaning,
literally, the place where the grasshopper
sings. So in the early days, when a Span
iard would take some dried tobacco leaves
from his garden and roll them up for
smoking purposes, he would offer one to a
friend with the remark, "Es de mi cigar
ral," meaning thereby that "this is from
my garden," Subsequently the expression
became "Este earro es do mi cigarral"—
this grasshopper is from my grasshoppery,
or this roll of tobacco is from my garden.
—The wide wagon tire law provides that
persons who shall own and 'ise draught
wagons on the public highways with tires
not less than four inches in width' for
hauling 2,000 pounds weight shall for each
year receive a rebate of one-fourth thoir
assessed highway tax. A farmer who has
wide tires on all his wagons except one
asked the Attorney General at Harrisburg
if ho were entitled to a reduction of road
tax. The Attorney General concluded, in
substanee, that if a farmer has six wide
tire wagons and one narrow tired, the lat
ter readers the others null and void so for
as a rebate is concerned.
—Tho vegetarians point with pride to
the fact that many of tne world's great
and famous people never eat any meat.
For example, Count Tolstoi, who amid the
wilds of Kussia, produces books that are
read the world over; "Ouida," the novel
ist, who finds a fruit 3iet an essential to
successful fiction writing; Mrs. Mona
Caird, who flourishes on the same susten
ance; and Prof. Mayor, the profound Cam
bridge scholar, who lunches on a piece of
broad and an apple, and declares that high
tninking has no greater enemy than flesh
feeding. Thoro are plenty of people, how
ever, who would rather cling to the flesh
pots than become like Tolstoi,, Ouida or
Mrs. Caird,
—The Kids were delighted with their
"Rabbit's nests" last Sunday morning.
The significance of tiie Easter egg is ex
plained as follows:—"In Germany and
among the Pennsylvania Germans toy
rabbits or hares, made of caDton flannel
stuffed with cotton, are given to tho chil
ren on Easter morning, they being told
that this Oshter has laid tho Easter eggs.
This custom is derived from the legend
that the hare was originally a bird, and
was changed into a ijuadruped by the god
dess OsLara or Estre. and, in gratitude to
I her, the haro exercises its original bird
function to lay eggs lor the goddess on her
festal day."

URDAY, THE 18th.
Mr. Potter has made "Trilby" a play
that fairly teems with the action and dra
matic effect. The story is told in a com
prehensive, straight-forward manner.
Every situation is reasonable and uatural
thero are no anti-climaxes, no repetitions,
no extraneous theatrical all times. Mr.
Potter has followed the book rather more
faithfully that is tha custom with the
average dramatist. Most of the charac
ters have been reproduced with woader
ful fidelity. Little Billee, Taffy and the
Laird are" Du Maurier's portraits brought
to life. is depicted with horrible
realism, Gecko is the same weird, pitiable
specimen of a musical enthusiast that the
book portrays. Jolly Zou Zoa, reckless
Dodor and tho half Uoien other minor
characters which have become so well
known and admired by the public are all
graphically represented.
Regarding Triloy there will bo a differ
ence of opinion, that is as to her relation
to Du Maurier's "Trilby," as to herself Ml
will agree that the stage "Trilby," is
thoroughly charming. For the sake of
dramatic effect, Mr. Potter has changed
"Trilby's" character to tho extent of mak
ing her weaker in her love for Little
Billee than was the original. She does
not mqko a -willing sacrifice for her lover's
sake, she is taken away from him by tho
hypnotic art of Svengali. This may not
be so noble, but it is certainly more in ac
cord with human nature- In other re
spects the stage character does not differ
materially from that of the book, though
of course, it is not possible to present all
the varying shqdes of "Trilby's" charming
nature so graphically described b7 Du
A company of admirable players have
been brought together by Manager Palmer
for the interpretation of "Trilby." Every
role is taken by a competent person, and
thero is an attention to minor details that
is most commendable. "Trilby" will be
presented at the Park Opera House on
Saturday the 19th

A popular and well-known lady of cen
tral Mississippi visited New Orleans at the
MardiGras for the first time. She was
delighted with the city, but was consid
erably shocked at the,"decolletones3" of
some of the costumes at the balls.
| [One day while there she was entertained
at a fashonable dinner, and upon her ro
turn to the house of the friend whom she
was visiting, she was askod to doscribe
some of the oostumes worn.
"What did Mrs. C wear?" said her
"I didn't look under the table; but she
didn't have on anything above it."

The New R. R. to Pittsburg.
It is generally suppi-sed that the Pitts
burg aud Shenango K. K. will be extended
from Butler to Fitt-burg this summer. A
Greenville dispatch says that the linancia!
part of the program was arranged in Xew
York, the sum ot £4,000,000 lieing guar
anteed by a syndicate. The immense
freight carrying contracts recently made
with the Carnegie interests will require
nearly double the present number of train
men "and shop employes, nearly all of
whom will live in Greenville. One of
; three routes from Butler to Pittsburg is
under consideration, and the final surveys
will be made at once.
The route from Butler will probably be
down the west side of the creelf to Thorn
Creek or Glado Hun and up it and then
down one of the branches of Bullcroek to
the Allegheny river
The route as surveyed through the south
end of Butler annihilates both the I, J. Mc-
Candless and John X. Patterson houses,
crosses tne creek on a high bridge, and
tunnels through the hill on the south side.
Regarding tho new road Mr Caruegie is
quoted as follows:
As to his reported deal with President
Dick of the Pittsburg, Shenango A Lake
Erie railroad, hn said: <- It isnot a new
road. It is only an extension of the lino
that now exists, which gives its traffic to
the Baltimore & Ohio railroad at Butler.
Last year it took eighteen days upon an
average for tho cars to make the trip be
tween Butler and Pittsburg, a distance of
about 80 miles, and we had great difficulty
in getting 1 the neccessary supply of ore.
Pre-ident Dick obtained $5,000,000 to ex
tend his lino to our work- at Braddock.
It was the key to the back door of Pitts
"Our new furnace at Duquesne will re
quire more than 1,000,000 tons of orejevery
year, and with the additional facilities
obtained by the new direct line, we shall
be able to get it promptly.
'•lt is no new competing line. We have \
always received a large part of our oro |
over it. Even with the improved line, I
think '.hat we shall be hard pushed with
oxisting facilities to get all the ore we
require. We new use about 9,000 tons a
day, an amount that wiil give all the rail
roads plenty to do.
"We could not get along without the
extension of the Dick road. When busi
ness is active, as it was a portion of last
year, we could hardly get enough ore to
run the old furnaces.
"Pittsburg needs additional railroad fa
cilities. It is always in trouble when a
boom comes "
