presentation of tho drama were un

say and with her efficient aid and
through the efforts of those participat
ing, combined with their natural qual

manner which would do credit to the
professional stage. The costumes were
tasty and fitting to the occasion. The

of the part was well night perfect and
the climaxes were skillfully worked
up to a point approaching perfection.
Miss Stella Allen, by her strong per

VERY BUSY CLERGYMAN.
Iter. Benjnmin Coltrcll, of Pnwtuxct
Vnlley, Hns a (Jrcnt Record.
From the Pawtuxet A'alley Gleaner.
The celebration of tho eighty-first
birthday of the Rev. Benjnmin Cot
trell at Flskvllle Corners, In the Paw
tuxet valley last night, calls attention
to the wonderful record of service per
formed by this minister of the gosool.
In speaking of the details of his busy
life Mr. Cottrell said: "I have mar
ried 7S2 couples and I have married
as many as 23 couples some years. The
largest sum I ever received as a mar
rlago fee was $20, which the late Hen
ry S. Angell paid me. I have often
married couples who would promise to
come back and pay when they got
money, but I never saw the large ma
jority of them again. The smallest
fee I ever received for a marriage wns
a codfish and a dozen of eggs. Years
ago many of those whom I married
paid me In vegetables, and one good
farmer never got through putting In
vegetables for mo each winter until
"I have attended 1,493 funerals as
officiating clergyman. Among those
funerals were those of my first and
second wives, the latter dying some
eighteen months ago. There were
two children, a boy nnd a girl, by my
llrst marriage. I do all my own house
work, cooking, washing, Ironing. I
learned to do it gradually, for my last
wife was an Invalid, and since her
death I have gone on alone.
I raised all tho money but $10 to
build the' Tabernacle church, where I
preach every Sunday. It was built
In 1S73 and cost $1.CG4.41, and when it
was dedicated April 1C it was all paid
for except $225.. Almost everyone gave
me money for it, but there was ono
poor old lady who had no home, and
not a cent, but she wanted to contrib
ute something. She wns very old and
feeble, but she got some knitting to
do, earned a dollar and sent for me.
She gave me the money and said, 'I
want you to buy the key to tho new
church with this,' nnd I did it."
In his lonely home Mr, Cottrell has
made some bed quilts of wonderful
design, one with 5,000 and the other
with 3,000 pieces. He Is his own sex
ton, and takes entire ohnrgo of the
Tabernacle. He preaches each Sunday
and keeps the church out of debt. He
Is of the Baptist faith. Rev. Mr. Cot
trell Is a well preserved, keen, aged
man, short In stature, wears a full
beard, and Is moderate and precise In

PUNCTURING A SIIAM CLAIM.
From the New York Sun.
Kver slnco the defeat of Bryan In No
vember last, the small but loquacious fac
tion of sound.-money Democrats who pre
ferred their personal comfort to a direct
voto -for SIcKlnley and Hobart, havo
been pretending that In some manner not
definitely stated their votes helped to save
tho election and tho country. Tho prete-n-flons
of the Indianapolis party are grow
ing somewhat bolder as tho event becomes
more rcmoto. There nro concelvablo cir
cumstances under which tho result of the
election mlcht havo been determined by
these 133,000 votes of the Cleveland Demo,
crats and Mugwumps for Palmer nnd
: Buckner, but thoso are not tho clreum-
stances which actually existed last rso
vcmber. The Palmer and Buckner vote
did not elect SIcKlnley. It did not defeat
Bryan. It did not affect tho result of the
election at all. Tho proof of this Is In
the election figures. They demonstrate
beyond tho possibility of question that 'f
every Bound-money Democrat ot Slug
wump who voted for Palmer nnd Buckner
had voted for Bryan and Sewull, Sir. SIl.
Klnley would nevertheless bo president
today all the same.
It seems almost cruel to exhibit In do
tall tho numerical poverty of this Indlin
apolls movement, for It Is In grotesquo con
trast with the vocal pretensions of the
historians and prophets of that move
ment. Yet It Is high time to state tho
facts. In every ono of tho New England
Btates tho vote for Palmer and Buckner
was very much smaller than tho plurality
of SIcKlnley over Bryan. That Is to say
It made no difference whatever as to tho
result In Maine, New Hampshire, Vor
mont, Massachusetts. Rhodu Island and
j Connecticut, whether tho supporters o'
ments nave a work to do.
If they grow flabby and refuse to hold tho womb In
place, there is but ono remedy, and that is to strengthen
their fibres nnd draw the cords buck into their normal
condition, thus righting tho position of'the womb.
Lydla E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound Is dcsltrncd
especially for this purpose, and. taken in connection'
with her Sanntlvo Wash, applied locally, will tono up
tho uterine system, strengthening the cords or liga
ments which hold up tho womb.
Any woman who suspects that she has this trouble
know it by n d rn train tr weight In tli
lower abdomen, irritability of the bladder and rectum,
great fatigue in walking, and leucorrhcea should
promptly coramenco tho uso of Lydla, K. Plnkhum'n
Vegctnblo Compound, If the caso is stubborn, write to
.Mrs. I'inkltam, Lynn., Mass., stating freely nil symp
toms. You will receive a prompt letter of ndvico free
of charge. All letters tire read and answercxl by wo
men only. Tho following letter relates to nn un
usually severe case of displacement of tho womb,
which was cured by the I'lnkhum remedies. Surely
it is convincing :
"Lydla E, Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
and Blood Puriiler cured mu when the doc
tors had given me up. I hnd spent hun
dreds of dollars searching for a cure, but found lit

Tho remaining Btates which went for
SIcKlnley are Oregon, California, and
Kentucky. These wero the closest states
In the list. SIcKlnley's plurality In Ore
gon was 2,010, and General Palmer's vote
977. If every Indianapolis Democrat In
Oregon had voted for Bryan, SteKlnly
would nevertheless havo gained the four
electoral votes of that state by a plurality
exceeding 1,090. In California the varying
votes given to the rczpectlvo electors on
the Republican ticket resulted In the
choice of one Bryan man and eight .'.I"
Klnley men. The total Palmer vote was
1,730; tho plurality for the highest SIcKin
ely elector was 2,797. Wo have not at hand
the llgures for tho other SIcKlnley elec
tors In California, but let us assume that
.the transfer to tho Bryan column of the
1,730 Palmer votes would have reversed tno
result and given to Bryan eight of the
nlno votes, instead of one. In Ktntii"':y
Palmer vote of 5,114 exceeded the Slek n
ley plurality of 2S1. Here, likewise, let us
assume that the absence of an Indianapo
lis ticket would have given to Bryan for
that stato thirteen electoral vots Instead
of the single one which he got. Trans
ferring, on the strength of this extrcmn
supposition, seven electoral votes of Cali
fornia from SIcKlnley tq Bryan, and
twelve electoral votes of Kentucky, tho
general result of tho election would not
have been affected. Tho only chnngi)
would havo been In the size of SIcKlnley's
electoral majority. Instead of nn electoral
majority of 93, he would have had one or
57, sufllclently conclusive and lmpresstv
for all practical purposes.
