THE Flit ST NUMItEH OF THE ILLUSTRATED
The .May edition o that sterling and standard
publication, which no family should be without, the
"Congressional DJrectory," greets our grateful eyes,
says the New York Sun. Even in that time honored

Since the January edition Art has found her way into
this catlaogue of statesmen. There is a headpiece or
two headpieces before each State beadroll of Sena

It some dream of a dolphin and an anchor, an octopus
and a hook? Is it snakes, serpent, on a shepherd's
crook, reversed? Is it a vulture or reedblrd, ram

"sleigh" bedsteds, inilated goatskins waving the right
ear jovially? A work of wonder, what can it bo, this
picture cut, we hear, by the Hon. James Reginald
Mann of Chicago from an Illustrated pamphlet on
Is this tho way to please the plain people? Why,
tho Hon. James Sansoving Henry, tho compiler, will
be having the book adorned with miniatures and il
luminations and printed in Victor Murdock red, anti
reciprocity blue, hobson yellow and so on. Worse and
worse, a photograph or water-colored sketch of each
Senator and Representative wll lbe thrown in the

Joe, the dread deforested top of, Ollle James arrest

On page 149, "PersidentB and Vice-Presidents and the
Congresses Coincident With Their Terms," occurs the
name, of the Vice-President in tho Presidency of
"William B. King (died April IS, 1853)."
Wo don't know when this erring "B" crept into
the name of William Rufus King, thirteenth Vice
President ( Representative in Congress from North
Carolina, Senator in Congress from Alabama for more
than thirty years, Minister to Franco. The 'error is
not Mr. Henry's; it appears for instance In the Direc
tory of tho Sixtieth Congress, second session, com
piled by A. J. Halford. Mr. King may be reasonably
obscure by this time, but an official publication of the
United States ought to be able to give accurately the
names of the Vice-Presidents. More correctness and
Mayor Gaynor is likely to go broke if he keeps

THE STANDARD OIL DECISION.
A decision involving the great and Important
results such as the one rendered Monday by the Su
preme Court of the United States in ordering the dis
solution of the Standard Oil Company cannot be
treated offhand editorially or discussed In an Intelli
gent manner until the text of the entire opinion of
tho Chief Justice can bo read and studied with a view
to comprehending its scope and tho momentous char
acter of its meaning.. The Citizen will, therefore,
refrain at this moment from treating the subject in
Its editorial columns until such time has elapsed as
will allow of a careful and conscientious deliberation
upon all points of the decision. The question is one
of too great magnitude to allow of too hasty editor
ial comment. The Citizen asks that sufficient time bo
given in order that the discussion of this decision may
be treated In a manner worthy of the paper and its

Only one of the actors who shall

There was no water In the place, and
tho performors ' had to go outside
and wash In tho cold, cold water in
tho brook, whero one of the players
caught cold. Two kerosense lamps
did service as footlights. One of the
auditors every time Henry Wagner
took a high note on the trombone,
looked at the Instrument, as if he ex

The readers of this paper will be
pleased to learn that there Is at
least one dreaded disease that
science has been able to cure In all
its stages, and that is Catarrh.
Hall's Catarrh Cure is the only posi
tive cure now known to tho medi
cal fraternity. Catarrh being a
constitutional diseaso, requires a
constitutional treatment. Hall's
Catarrh Cure is taken Internally,
acting directly upon the blood and
mucous surfaces of tho system,
thereby destroying the foundation
of the diseaso, nnd giving the patient
strength by building up the consti
tution and assisting nature in doing
Its work. The proprietors have bo
much faith in its curative powers
that they offer One Hundred Dollars
for any case that it fails to cure.

A PLEASING ENTERTAINMENT.
A recital held at the Lyric Thea
tre, last Friday evening, brought
Madam Helen Bertram to the city
as tho prima donna soprano. Ma
dam Bertram has been in New York
for a number of year's studying and
cultivating her voice, and her ap
pearance hero was interesting on
that account. Her first selection
was Leoncavallo's "Ballatelia," tho
great display song of most dramatic
soprano vocalists, and the perform
ance was characterized by a bril
liancy much too seldom heard. The
acoustical properties of tho Lyric
Theatre are very good, and this
Incident naturally contributes to
brilliancy, but aside from this fact,
the soloist proved herself a close
student of technique and Its tradi
tions and sang with excellent ex
pression. She was ably assisted at
the pianoforte by Louis Baker Phil
Hps, Scranton. Tho audience made

numbers and encores wore fro
