Hutseldom are more miserable speci^^mens of humanity to be found anywhere^than the pair which were sent to the coun^^ty jail Thursday charged with sU-sling.^They go by the uame of Nesbltt, Carrie^and John. .Several times ^M*fore have the^police been bothered with them, driving^them out of houses when their^antics and capers iM^-ame such that they^terrified Ihelr neighbors. The man Is In^his thirlie* and the woman lias undoubted^^ly passed 25 years. To look at them is^sickening. They are mere skeleton*,^clothed in rags. Their appetite for such^drugs as opium, morphine and cocaine i^^BUCD thai at this stage they cannot do with^^out them. They apply morphine ami t o^calne externally by use of a small^glass injector, which Is placed in^an opening In the left arm or leg.^I loth tbeas mem hers are covered with^scabs. In the how 1 from which they were^taken not a paiticle of food or clothing^was found. Hut one cover was on the^scanty la-d, while the lloor was covered with^dirt and the few articles of furniture were^old and broken. They had sold every^^thing lo purchase drugs. Many small^empty bottles were lu the bureau drawers,^hut nothing else. (Jive them morphine or^oealae and they are quiet, but as soon as^its effect wears away they pjead plteooxJ)^for more, aud if it is not forthcoming they^soon begin to rave, grind their teeth, tear^their hair and present a hideous sight to^those who see them. Mich ha* been then^experience in tfie county jail, but out of^humandy Mm i iff Jt Meria furnished them a^small quantity of morphine. They had^none during the night and this morning^they will be taken before Prohate Judge^llowey , when their condition w ill undoubt-^etllv have reached such a state that they^will prove fit sill j da tor Warm .springs.

TheMusin Concert company was greeted^last night by a good audience, numerically^and socially, who exhibited an enthusiasm^which was (all* warranted by the excel^^lence ot the i ntertainuient. The company^as at present organized comprises four^uicmtwrs: The violin virtuoso, Ovide^Musin; Whitney M a'krldge, tenor; Mrs.^Annie Louise Tanner, sopano, and K M.^Mionert, pianist and accompanist, the la*tt^named beginning the concert with Liszt's^Khapaodie Hougroise No. ^^, and responding^to a recall with a composition by his in^structor, John I nd^ rner. called ^Pieasanl^Dreams.^ He plays with taste and skill, but^last night was at a disadvantage because^of ttie quality ot the instrument. His^accompaniments were played with ex^celtent judgment throughout^something^which cannot Ih* said truthfully^about many more celebrated players. Mrs.^Tanner sang PpK'ti's difficult ^Air and^Variations^ skillfully and in excellent^votes, and gave ^t'ouiin' Thro' the Rye^ as^an encore. Her second number, ^Forbid^den Mutic.^ by (lastaldoii, showed her^raise to exoellent advantage, and the en^^core, ^leh liebe dich,^ was warmly^applauded. Mr. Morkridge is a pleasing^tenor, With excellent control of a voice of^considerable range and power. His pro^gram nunieera were ^O, Vision Entranc^^ing.^ by (ioring Tnoaxae, and ^Come Into^the QSfdeta, Maud.^ each of which brought^^to imperative recall, to the first of which^he sang the air from ^Klgoletto,^ ^La^Donada e Mobile,^ and to the aecnud ^Com^I gentil,^ from the opera ^Don Pasqua!^.^^Mr. MocUndge and Mrs. Tanner sang two^duets to the entire satisfaction of the^audience.
tm course the star of the evening was Mr.^Musin, whose violin playing improves erss^upon the quality ft showed when he first^appealed upon the Ainericau concert stage,^lie was ou the program for three num^^bers, which, through ttie insistence ot the^audience, become seven. The first, a^^Souvenir de Haydn,^ ny Leonard, was^atipplemented bv a delicious minuet by^lioeherint, while his second, a double num^^ber Itself and of his own composition, was^followed first bv the familiar and al^^ways popular ^Carnival de Venice,^ by^I'aganini, while for a second encore he^played a ptz/icail from ^.Silvia,^ by He^^lloes. The Wienlawskl ^Aires Hussex^^was so brilliantly played that an encore^from a leas demonstrative audience than^that of last night would have been inevlta-^ble. The encore was a valse de concert by^the performer himself; and It can be said^here that hia compositions constituted as^enjoyable features of tbe peiformance as^those of the more famous composers.
Theaudience was not at all niodeat In Its^demands, considering the fact that It ob^^tained twenty ^ne numbers Instead of the^eleven which the program called for. It^was also a tolerant audience, because no^riot followed the loud conversation of two^male persons in tfie paiquette during Mrs.^fanner's charming rendition of the Proch^^Air and Variations.
