MOKE RELIEF NEEDED.
Vliil Account of the Work Being
Dune tit Vun, Turkey.
New York, Feb. 25.-The following cable
dispatch from Or. Grace Kimball, Ameri
can missionary at Van, has been received at
the office of the Christian Herald:
"Van, Turkey, Feb. 24.- The needfor re
lief is steadily increasing. We arc now
helping 1G.000 destitute ersons here. With
the Christian Herald fund we have sent a
relief exiHilitlon with $600 to SbadagU to
begin wort there, and $500 has also been
sent to ArdJiss."
"These districts embrace some fifty
villages and great distress prevails. The
scanty winter provision of most families
In both cities and villages is exhausted, or
soon will be, and they have no possible
resource save through the relief work.
This alone prevents a famine.
"There are now six .Christian Herald
bakeries running. We have 100 employes
In tbe industrial bureau, ltelief must con
tinue at least two mouths longer.
In a letter from Van, Ju-i received, dated
January 22, Dr. Kimball writes:
"As soon as we had the assurance of the
first $10,000 from the Christian Herald
we pushed forward the relief work with
new vigor and more comracnsurately to
the present needs of the people. This in
volved die need of larger quarters, and we
found a cry admirably adapted house of
three stories with large halls that will hold
e eral hundred people and give convenient
of ftce rooms for the various departments
all for the magnificent Mini of $G.60a month
"Applicants for help are required to bring
a letter or recommendation from the
district men' or the quarter In which they
live or from the village refugee com
mittee. "The demand for work- docs not abate,
and we are adding daily to the thousand
workers In the Industrial bureau at the rate
or from ten to twenty persons. Last week's
pay roll shows 1,210 persons paid in
total, $443. The cost of the raw ma
terial Is slightly less than the wages, so that
with rent and other expenses, wc may put
3ie cost of the Industrial bureau at $900 a
week. This work furnishes a living to
considerably more than 5,000 people,"

wrigglers. Mime or which can only be seen
through a mltrosiope, jet are sufricicntly

A bottle containing a ball made of these
wriggling "sarpeutK!' has been brought
to The Times office by Mr. August II.
Wieuoke of No. 1W)2 Turner street north
east. He had fished them from a pitcher
or hair-clay half-water juSt drawn from
the hydrant In his yard.
After drinking some of the mixture Mr.
M'ieneke noticed In the bottom of the
pitcher something of a foreign nature.
HE SAW MANY WRIGGLES.
He peered more Intently and could have
swornhesawsnmething wriggle. He moved
his position and Milfuil his position to catch
a lietter light. Then he saw many wriggles.
Owing to the mud he could not distin
guish Just what was kicking up so much
sediment, but there was nu doubt In his
miud that the water was really alive. He
then secured a strainer and poured out the
water. He was astounded.

them, thought of worm tablets, worm medi
cine, surgical appliances and everything
under the sun calculated to stop tbe wrig
gling which he was sure he felt going on
He was positive that the mucous mem
brane of his interior was being subjected
to a process hitherto unknown to nature.
It was worse than the St. Vitus dance, this
continual Itching, tickling, twisting, and
squirming on the inside.
He went to the drug store and forti
fied blni'-eir with more than the customary
ounce of prevention, and then submitted
some or Ibe snake, as he called them, to
the pharmacist, to lie placed in pure, dear
distilled water, where be could see them
without .trouble.. It, was this bottle he

and unconscious. Her skull was fractured.
She lingered until noon yesterday, when
she died. Kolinskl fled but was captured
by ConstabloEvansnnd taken to thelockup.
The room wherein the brutal assault was
committed gave evidence that the woman
had struggled for her life. Blood was
spattered over the room, and.lbe poker was

"For Fair Virginia" is one of the latest
and decidedly one of the best contributions
based upon the great struggle between the
Russ Whytal has given our native play
wrights a "iKjinter" as to the inexhaustible
m.iterlal for dramatic construction fur
nished by that historic epoch, and he has,
furthermore, shown them that it is not
necessary to bring upon Uic scene ear
splitting guns, bad-smclllng smoke, and all
the other nielodraniatlcaccessorics to make
such a play effective.
"For Fair Virginia" is built upon natural
lines. The conflicting emotions of conjugal
affection and loyalty, to native land are
strongly, masterfully brought out, and
around this central point are most cleverly
grouped the romance and the various dra
matic ah'd humorous incidents of the plot.
Mr. Wlij tnl impersonates the central male
figure of the play, which. In this instance.
Is the villain, though even he Is toned down
In that the motiveforhisexcessof meanness
Is his love for tbe woman who has preferred
another to him. With his portrayal but one
fault can be found, and that is his passing,
at times, the line which divides vigor of ex
pression from rant. Otherwise his Col.
Lnughlin Is the unsympathetic character
which he intended it should be.
Mrs. Whytal is charming in face, form and
action as the heroine, Mrs. Virginia Es
mond, the loving wlfe.yet devoted Southern
woman, who resents her husband's espousal
ot the Union cause. Miss Mabel, Knowles
as Nell Esmond, her sister-in-law, loyal
like her brother, but loving a "Johnny
Reb," is simply delightful, while Mr. Charles
S. Abbe, as Col. Dunbar, is as manly, at
wish for. Miss Lottie Briscoe played the
part of Julian, Mrs. Esmond's child, ad
mirably, and Mr. John Woodward as Uncle
Zeb Is "one of the best Southern plantaUon
"niggers" ever Been on the stage.
The scenery is beautiful, no prettier stage
picture being imaginable than the landscape
among tho Virginia hills in the first act.
Mr. and Mrs. Whytal introduced them
selves to the large audience in a pretty little
their talent for lighter roles.
"LUUe Christopher" at Allen's Grand
Opera House last night demonstrated Its
staying qualities as a popular favorite.
This bright, effective burlesque won golden
opinions last year on its first presentation
here. Mr. Allen's good Judgment in the
matter Is Indicated by the attendance and
the plaudits or last night.
Miss Theresa Vaughn again takes the part
of Little Christopher, Mr. Collier Is O'Hool

The Grand . Vizier of Baratnria Is well
presented by Mr. Henry Leonl. His tenor
gives a promise of high merit. The Bey, by
Mr. Clark; Fcplta, by Miss Pauline Train,
and Guinevere, by Miss Yolande Wallace,
fill their places admirably. Mr. John Wil
son makes a hit in tbe double role of Capt.
Slammerand Weary Waggles.
The entire operetta Is well staged and the
fun Is unbroken from beginning to end.
The songs are lightly remembered on the
streets and catch a place in the heart in a
way that' brings' the hearer back again..

Sirs: Having tried a number of different so-called
rheumatism cures without avail, I was induced to try a
bottle of your I. C I?., and I am happy to say have been
very much benefited by using it. Before I began taking
your invaluable LC.R.I was laid up in bed. and could
neither move hand nor foot, had intense pains in my
muscles and joints, but after using nearty one bottle I
