There la Kolbing Narnrlalnar
in the fa.-t that Benson's Capoinc Plasterf
ar widely imitated: that cheap and worth
leas plas'ers, with nan.es of atuiilar sound
and similar appearance in typo, are freely
offered for sale. Articles of great and orig
inal merit always have to compete wi'h
trashy imitation. But as they become
known they die out through deserved neg
lect. Mcinwhile we warn the public against
the so-called Capsicum," " Capsicin,"
"Capuein" and " Capsicine " plajters,
whether Fenton's," " Burton's" or other
wise. They have no medicinal or curativa
virtues whatever, and are made to sell on
the reputa'ion of Benson's. When purchas
ing ask for Benson's, deal with respectable
druggiBts onlv, and you cannot be deceived.
The genuine has tne ' Three Seats " trade
mark on the cloth, and tbe word " Capcine"
cut in th center.
A BltlLLIAJT SUCCESS.
THE YOUXO MEN'S HEBREW AS
A Literary and Magical Programme
of tireat Excellence and Vari
Tbe enUrtataments of the Young
Men's Hebrew AHonation continue
to increase in attractive nee, general
excellence and variety, and the per
formance last Sunday night was by
general consent roted th best yet
given by this excellent oiRiniiitioD
during the season rapidly drawing to
a close. The introductory qnartette,
"Mikado," by Messrs. Coleman and
Bruch (violinitt-), James Nathan
(flutist) and Mies Fiances Sellers, i
excellently rendered, as was also tho
concluding potpourri, by the same ac
complished qnartet'e. Mus Jennie
Greennburg of Jackr-on, Tenn., sang
the "Magnolia Waltz" with fine feel
ing and taste, bhe is the possessor of
clear soprano that makes ap in
sweetness what it lacks in volun e and
power. Her effort evoked a t early
encore, to which she responded with
"What Shall I Do," rendered
with much archness and expres
sion. Mr. Victor Hexter lectured on
"The Jew in Politics," and proved
himseif a cleir and sound reatoner,
and intimately familiar with th his
tory ot the Jewish rtt'9 and (he
achievements o its eons. Mr. llixter
lias a good voice, easy delivery, and
hamllig his subjo t with direcinens
and force. He will doubtless become
one of the oratorical pillrs of the
Young Men's Hebrew Association.
Mies Frances Pulzel sangl'I Wat for
Thee," and, for an encore, "Wno'll
Buy My Flowers?" iMaking allowance
for the severe cold from which xhe
wa. suffering, she did surprisingly
well. There are indications that her
voice is gaining in power and range.
Miss Mollie Sternberg's eesay on
"Bachelors" was wittily conceived,
admirably written and read with great
animation and a nice appreciation of
the demands of her subjtct matter.
Her future ellcrta in tbe fame line
will, doubtless, be looked forward to
Mips Leah Frank delivered a recita
tion, "Which Shall It Be?" touching
little poem by Mrs. Ethel Lynn Beer.
It describes mother endeavoring tj
choose from among her seven children
which she can best spare, proposi
tion having been made to her to pro
vide a luxurious homo for one of the
seven. She begins ut the cradle, and
paeses on from cradle to crib, and ciib
to cot, pauciog over each slumbering
loved one and debating which it
would coe-t her least suffering t j part
from, and she ends by keeping them
It is no exaggeration to Bay that
nothing finer than Mini Frank's rendi
tion of this touching scene has been
recently done here, either in profes
sionalor amateur circles. The apolo
getic feeling that is dominant in one's
mind when witnessing the efforts of
the average amateur elocutionist is
not present when Miss Frank occupies
the stage. Tbe very first line that left
her lips disclosed the artitt, and then
one forgot tbe aitist and saw only the
womkn itruggiing with her mighty
love for her children, guzing with a
wealtk of affection at each treasured
form, and evoking with each tearful
glance world ol memories. There
were no accessories on the stage to aH
tiht Miw Frank in creating this illu
sion nothing but the magic of her
sr: that held her hearers as if
bound by a Bpell which she alone
could dissolve when the lest notes
of her deep voice died acftly on the
air. It is to be hoped that this lady
w 11 not suffer her undoubted talents
to remain concealed from the public
in the future as they have baen in the

Ati.nta fWfiVuf'on. 11th: The
championship season vt ill oen on
next Thursday with the following
Atlanta in Charleston, four games.
Na hville at Augusta, four guinea.
Memphis in Macon, four games.
Chattanooga in Savannah, four
There is much speculation as fo the
four eliihs that will he first U.iv win
ners. The general impression Is that
the following four will draw the first
Mood: Atlanta, Savannah, Nashville
and Memphis. The first day winners
may not count for much, but the clubs
that lead in next Sunday's summary
will have won some consideration.
Atlanta exH-ets to get three out of
four with Charleston. Chattanooga
declares that Savannah shall not have
more. than two. Nashvi le and Au
gusta are pretty well balanced, and
Macon will do well if she evens up
Memphis. The leaguu umpires are
Mcljuaid, Brennan, Cireen and
Burns. Visiting clubs take
per game without option, and
tour games are plaved 'in each
series President Proudtit has decided
that each umpire shall take eight
games without change. Each club has
put up f'KK) forfeit Into the league
treasury, so that the season opens au
spiciously. An informal test of the
strength of four of the teams will be
made to-morrow and Tuesday, Nash
ville playing Atlanta on those days,
and Augusta playing Charleston. The
league teams are very much stronger
than they were last year. No North
ern club, except the Chicago, left the
South without being beaten, and some
of them lost us many games ns they j
won. The salary list of each club
averages over J'jnOO per month, which
is an advance of per cent, on last
year The clubs are more evenly
matched than they were in the begin
ning of last season, and Atlanta need
not expect to walk away with her ri
vals. She will have io light every
inch of her way from pennant to pen
nant. Next Sunday's reports will af
ford sonic basis for prediction.

The County Court met yesterday
anil worried through the entire day
without transacting any business of
special impor ance. There was some
"hack talk" from a few of the mem
bers on ac ount of the nroximitv of
August, but the wounded were aide to
leave without a litter. Chairman
Slaughter presided, hut soon after the
reading of the minutes of the last
meeting called Justice York tempo
rarily to the chair, and going
down upon the Hour brought
up the question of conlest. He
said he wnnted the court to settle it
once and forever as to whether he had
been chosen chairman or not He
was poor and could not afford to
throw away h s time. It was decided,
however, to postpone action until the
return of ex Chairman Smith, wli is
now in Carolina. the case wn set
for the second 'Monday in June.

Justices Allen and Harrcll submit
ted their report as two of a committee
to determine whether or not Justice
Welbnrne, chairman of the Board of
Poor-House Commissioners, for which
services he receives $."( per month,
was entitled to extra compensation
for services as purchasing agent of the
Wrork-i louse. They declared against
the policy of increasing the

the amount fixed at the time
of his election. Justice Gallowav

torney adhered to his original opin
ion, ami when the (iiiestion was put
to a vote the motion to reconsider
was lost by a vote of 5 yeas to 10
Superintendent Thonuis ii the
County Work-House made a report
for the iiarter ending April 1st. He
submitted a schedule, showing in de
tail the name of each person of whom
supplies of every kind were purchased
and the amount paid in each instance.
The total expense for the quarter, for
permanent improvements and imple
ments, for supplies, hire of men, etc ,
was show n to Le $2057.!:!. Fiitiniating
the value of removing tj009 cubic yards
of earth by the county convicts work
ing on the roads at $1200, and the cost
of carting ninety-seven loads of ma
nure at 17., the expenses over and
above the value of work done was
t82. The cost of feeding the
prisoners for the quarter
was $fn8.2t, or an average of
!) 1-7 cents a day each. This amount
would, however, be considerably in
censed if the whole amonnt of teejc
ing up the institution were taken as a
basis Estimates of Kngineer Fleece,
Mr. Thomas says, show, however,
that on the 9th of March the value of

News reached the city yesterday oj j
the destruction of Randolph, once the j
rival of Memphis, which stands on the
high b' tiffs about thirty miles above,
on the banks of the Mississippi. About j
8 o'clock last Saturday night fire broke i
out in one of the stores from some nil- j
known cause, and in an hour or so
every business house and shop in the
place, about a dozen in all, were con
sumed except one, that of Pcrrell A
Co., the only place which was in
sured. The loss was not great and
would probably bo covered by f VkiO.

The follow ing table exhibits the im

mind patrons that their children can
not succeed in their studies unless

our sessions are short.
