the pecuniary refroaslblllty of a venture
that was a failure largely by reason ol
the theater and the manager lu which
and with whom she was so unfortunate
as to play, that Mr. Hart stood in front of
his theater an J rcscrted to the unique
method ef aiding the success of his "star,"

on her failures and shortcomings, and by
insulting comments on the appearance o

attacking her maid and ot the Illegal itn
prisoning of one of the men sent for her
wardrobe, part ot which he Illegally de
tained ; and that the manager himself
threatened to hate her locked up in
Ludlow street jail." In the face of this
recital of injuries, the Herald calls Miss
Dickinson a scold and tells millions ot
neonhs that "Mi Di klnon h is tried
the stage and failed, and will not recog
nize tho iut; of tier failure. She scolds
the uewsnapers and oolJ the inana

quility, merely becaue the putilic wui
not come out to hear a dull lecture ou
Lugllsh history which she fancies is a
play because the uarrative is broken up
in the lorm ot dialogue. Let her there
fore scold the public for fctaj ing away,
aud then consider a little whether there
is not such a thing as mimic art to be
acquired by traiuing In the theatre, .aud
study and observation everywhere, and,
even then, only to iw acquired where
there is natural adaptation.1'
The Herald, In short, Informs Miss
Dickinson that as an actress she is not a
success, ami owing to natural inaDimv
for the work, she never can bo.
Dctore the curtain ef the La;lc tliua-

York critics with all manner ot jealous
injustice toward her. Her career as un
actress haa been short aud not sweet,
whatever may be the cause. But one
thing Is certain : U Anna Dickinson pos
sesses histrionic genius, the public is
bound to do her iusticc, sooner or later.

Iv Packard friends carry the war into
conirreas when that twr uect, and
persist in making attacks on the presl
dent, these, It is said, "will be ready
with proofs showing that tbe loss of one
thousand or two thousand votes in cer
tain parishes to come off tbe the Hayes
electors in Louisiana was a job put up
by Mr. Packard himself, in order that he
might run ahead of Hayes, and thus
force the Republican party to stand by
him, and Insist on his title as" governor
of Louisiana," A pleasant and gratify
lug reflection it must be to Hayes and
bis friends that until th last few weeks
they were themselves the apologlsers
and supporters ot Packard and his horde
ol corrupt adherents.

A dispatch from Washington City
cays that tbe war news from Europe are
received with deep Interest In govern
ment circlet. "A carefully prepared
statement from the agricultural depart
ment shows that the whole product of
the United States last year was nearly
IWO.OOn.OOO bushel s. Taking the average
of the past five years as a ba
sis, it is shown that tbe
amount required for home consumption
will be about 200.000.000 bushels, leaving
a surplus ot 100,000,000 bushels tor ex
port. Tbe average export has been
about C0,000,000 bushels, but could be
Increased to 75,000,000. It is estimated
that about thirty million bushels of last
year's surplus is yet in the couutrv and
will be ready for prompt shipment should
the foreign demand increase, as antic) pa
ted, through the eflect of the European
war upon the foreign sourtes ot supply.
The latest official returns of the depart
ment of agriculture show an increased
acreage of winter wheat, which now
presents a favor, ble prospect of a full
average yield. If ths prcneut outlnnlf bs
realized, this portion ol the crop will yield
fully 100,000,000 bushels. At this early
period lu the planting season, it Is Im
possible to state what will be the acreage
and prospective product of the spring
wheat. With the prospect of a large de
mand from abroad, it is believed at the
department that the acreage of spring
wheat will be largely Increased. Much
et this class ot wheat is grown in the sec
tions subject to visitations of grasshop
pers, and It is thought that this may de
ter farmers from increutiog their acreage
of this crop. Under favorable circuit
stances, It la expected that tbe aggregate
yield will exceed former years; aud in
tbe event of a protracted war, Europe
will aflord a ready market for all the sur
plus available far foreign consumption."

exist In Louisiana such domestic vio

may be invoked for the defense of the
state. Tbe disputes which exist aa to the

Fop restoring Gray Hair to
its natural Vitality and Color.
which Is nt
ing the hair.
Faded or gray
hair is soon
restored to its
original color, with the gloss and
freshness of youth. Thin hair is
ihickened, falling hair checked, and
baldnes9 often, though not always,
cured by its use. Nothing can re
store the hair where the follicles are
destroyed, or the glands atrophied
nnd decayed. But such as remain
can be saved for usefulness by this
application. Instead of fouling the
hair with n pasty sediment, it will
keep it clean and vigorous. Its
occasional use will prevent the hair
from turning gray or falling off,
nnd consequently prevent baldness.
Free from those deleterious sub
stances which make some prepara
tions dangerous and injurious to
the hair, the Vigor can only benefit
but not harm it. If wanted merely
nothing else can be found to desir
able. Containing neither oil nor
dye, it docs not soil white cam
bric, and yet lusts long on the hair,
giving it a rich glossy lustre aud u
