President Cleveland lias Impressed somo
of the leading politicians ot Ills party
with the Idea tlint he want another
nomination. And, strange as It may
seem, this Idea Is not one held alone by
Idle gosslpcrs, but Is seriously enter

HIGH SCHOOL PLAYERS,

Admiring 1 rlruds A 1'romlt-
lug &lngrr Among llirm,
Probably tin; most niub'tlous effort yet
made by any ot the high school societies
In their "open sessions" was llio pro
gramme offered nt the Contes last evening
by the Society ot Literature nnd History,
the vuungesl orgnulititton In the bcIiooI.
Theso open sessions hava come to pos
sess more than ordinary attraction, dm
superiority of tho work being largely due
to the friendly emulation existing among
the students of the high school, Somo ot
the programmes have reflected great credit
upon the talent, originality and energy of
the joung people, and they aro Invariably
given to large nudlenccs.
The feature of last ev tiling's programme
wus the priseututlun of an original play
entitled "l.lMa, the Christian," relating to
the relun of Neiu and the persecution ot
the Christians, and Loncelvcd with consid
erable regard, but not absolute IMellty, tu
historical facts and sequence. The play
was written by Mr, U. II. I'orsee, a dis
tinguished member ot last year's graduat
ing class, nnd nt that time piesldent of the
Hoclety ot Literature and History. The
story, ns brlcily set forth In the pro
gramme, Is this:
Conilulus, a Roman noble, takes advan
tage ot the persecution of the Christians
by Nero to captuic I.lvla, daughter of
alerlus. a Christian, whom he delrcs to
enter as his niece in the emperor's festi
val of song, and thus win the triumph
which would otherwise go to the daughter
of a foe. The father and cousin escape tho
pi'tsecutlon, and nfter a year's unsiiccess
ml search for the girl, the cousin nllovvs
himself to be captured by Conilnlus' sol
diers nnd to bo made a slave In thu no
bleman's family. He finds I.lvla, and with
tho aid ot Semprmila, rescues her n few
days before the empror's festival, They
escape to the catacombs, arriving a few
moments after the death of the father. A
plan Is then mnde known by which Lucius
und Llvla subsequently escape from Rome.
The play ends, however, with the denth of
the r alter and thu benediction of the
Although relating to the persecution ot
the Christians, the play was not exploited
as a religious drama, but tho theme was
chosen rather for Its dramatic value, Mr.
i'orsee showed quite a degree of literary
ability In the drama and has been very
clever In tho happy Introduction of music,
which Is a large factor In the development
of the story. Thero Is, of course, little
claim for dramatic construction, and It
would be obviously unfair to such an effort
to try It by tho light of professional stand
ards. It Is dedicated to Mls Bessie Park
inson, who plnjed the title part, nnd whose
sweet voice suggested tho theme for the
Miss Parkinson's prlnclpnl numbers wcr
a Gounod Ave Jlarli and a Schubert min
uet, both with orchestral accompaniment.
Although a mere school girl Miss Parkin
son Is even now nn Interesting singer nnd
gives great promise of future distinction.
Her volco Is one of singular purity nnd
sweetness and is absolutely true. It Is a
voice that should be guarded carefully and
used sparingly until It has a firm basis of

The reason why n womnn li nfrald of n mouse h a profound mystery Indeed,
it lin-i never been very clearly proven that she Is. Hut some women nre constantly
in such a nervous, irritable condition that the sliqhcst tliint; nntiojs nnd startles
them. The cause ot this utiforuimtc state of affairs ii usually some functional do.
miiKcmciit: some dtstressnip; or piitiful irregularity, some dcrniHicinciit or peculiar
weakness incident to her set, or, it may lie tiue to itillnmiitation, ulceration ot
displacement, of some of the pelvic isccm, or to other uruanlc lcsinui peculiar to
her sex. Vrotn whichever cause it may nrise, Dr. Pierce's pnvorilu Prescription will
effect n radical cute.
As n soothing nnd streugtheiiiticj nervine, "1'nvorite Prescription " is iinrntialcd
nnd is invaluable in nllnjiug and subduing ticnous excitability, irritability,
nervous exhaustion, nervous prostration, hysteria, spasms and other distressing,
nervous symptom commonly attendant upon functional or organic disease
of the womb. It induces refreshing sleep nnd relieves mental anxiety and
Dr. Fierce, Chief Consulting Phvsician to that model Sanitarium, the Invalids'
Hotel and Surgical Institute, of "lluffalo, N. Y having for thirtv years mr.de a
specialty of the diseases peculiar to women, prescribes his " Favorite Prescription "in
cases where nn invigorating tonic and nervine is required that will hnve a special
influence upon the womanly organs, l'or the ittfiimmintiou nnd ulceration of the
lining membranes which cause such disagreeable mid exhausting drains upon the
system, it is a most potent specific.
The " Prescription, " if taken during the period of gestation, makes ehiUibiilh
eav nnd almost painless, ly preparing the system for deliver)', thus shortening
"labor" ns well as the period of confinement. Thus the danger of that trying
ordeal to both mother and child may, in great measure, be avoided. The mother js
strengthened and built up, nnd an ntmndint secretion of nourishment for the child
promoted. Jinny thousands of testimonials which Dr. Pierce has received, verify
nnd establish these facts.
If you nre ailing, nnd dread to consult your home physician nnd submit to the
stereotyped treatment by "local applications" write Dr. Pierce, or the World's Dis
pensary Medical Association, of Imtlalo, N, Y of which he is President. They will
give you good professional advice, without charge, aud will tell you how to cute
yourself t home.

The proposition is laid down broadly and
clearly that 11 contract creatine; a year to
year indebtedness, for necessity, for ft term
of jears, cannot bo held unconstitutional
because for tho simile sear the indebted
ness exceeds the constitutional prohibition.
Tho famous Columbia case. In which tho

announced that 11 city's revenue consists
not alone of the tax upon real estate and
personal property, but also in the Incident
al revenue which may be derived from
storekeepers' llwnses. peddlers' licensee,
from Its share of salooon licenses, and
from all other Incidental sources, and that
such Incidental levenue miy be used In
paying the expenses ot city ovcrnment, or
In paylnu for "necessailes." nnd either
account may be transferred to pay any

ordluanco or by constitutional limitation
such transfer of funds would be Invalid.
The decision is bottomed upon an ex
