"Lucia" By the Milan Opera Company.
When the Curtain fell on the performance
of Lucia" last evening the opinion was that
the third appearance of the Milan Opera
Company was as good as any previous night.
It was a pleasure to hear the voice of M'lle
Romeldi in the recitative passages and florid
arias with which the role ofLucta," the ill-fated
"Bride of Lammennoor," is so liberal
ly provided. The soprano's execution is, as it
were, tested and tried by a flute obligate, in
what is called the "mad scene" of the third
act, but M'lle Romeldi overcame nil the difficulties
with remarkable ease, and the audience
was treated to a flow of vocal pyrotechnics
such as are not usually heard. The
duet in the first abt by M'lle Romeldi nnd
Signor MontegrilTo was most beautifully rendered,
and called forth repeated applause.
Signor Montegriffo won a triumph in the
death scene of the final act, where, in addition
to his perfect. vocalization, his wonderful
dramatic power was brought out with effect.
In the role of Ashton Signor Vansanl sang
splendidly, his management of the upper
register of his voice being excellent, and his
phrasing that of a thorough artist. Signor
Bologna, as Raimondo, was quite successful
in this part, but the role does not afford him
The excellency of the company as a whole
was best shown by the manner in which the
famous sextette in the second act was rendered.
This was sung with remarkable effect,
and richly deserved the applause awarded.
The general orchestration was very fine.
At the Opera House Monday night.
My Crutches Gone.
I have suffered from rheumatism for
seven or eight years. For one year I
was compelled to use crutches. I tried
various remedies, especially every sort
of liniment, but none of them did me
any good. I saw in the newspapers an
advertisement of Swift's Specific for
rheumatism, and resolved to try it. I
have taken four bottles. After I had
taken it awhile I Was enabled to throw
away my crutches. I commenced
using Swift's Specific last November,
and have had no further use for my
crutches, and only suffer a little at
times now, and would not have suffered
at all if I had continued to take the
medicine. My experience with liniments
is that they are of but little
benefit and that only temporary. The
disease is in the blood and must be
eradicated, and that is the reason I
took S. S. S. It is the best blood purifier
I ever Used.

The Youngest Can Use It.
My child, when about one month
old was afflicted with a dreadful breaking
out on the side of his face. I took
him to the doctor, who did not think
there was much the matter, but the
child continued to grow worse. The
little fellow was suffering so much and
was so fretful that we had no rest
night or day. Wo consulted other
physicians and they did what they
could, but brought no relief to the little
sufferer. I tried everything at
hand or that I could hear of. but
without the desired effect. About this
time I saw un advertisement of Swift's
Specific. It was recommended for
skin diseases. I purchased four bottles.
The first bottle aid him a great deal of
good. After using the third bottle the
disease entirely disappeared, and the
child Is now perfectly well. I would
recommend SS-as-a household
remedy, us It has brought both health
and happiness to my own.

WHAT IS MALARIA.
A Plan to Successfully Combat a
Disease that Defies Analysis.
The once accepted theory that malaria
flourished only in wet, swampy
localities, and followed the clearing of
large tracts of land, is no longer tenable,
as the majority of its victims are
now numbered among inhabitants of
cities and long established settlement.'-.
But hiving aside all question of the
ory we come face to face with the vital
question, what is malaria ? and how is
it to be successfully vanquished? To
the first inquiry we reply, malaria
(bad air) from which the word is derived,
explains its character exactlj
Had air taken into tne lungs ana disseminated
through the blood, poisons
the entire system, and typhoul fever,
malaria fever, diphtheria and other
dangerous diseases follow. Equally
bad effects result from contaminated
water, bad drainage, or continued
over-exertion, as they all cause loss of
nerve life, the essence of physical well
Malarial poison cannot be detected
by chemical tests, and is only known
by its effects upon the system.
One of the worst cases of malaria
was that of Mrs. C. F Boshen, of 07
Fifth St., Troy, N. Y. Her experience,
of great value. Is given, that others
may receive like benefit. She suffered
not only from malaria, her
being of a saffron hue, but also
rom enlargement of the liver. Her
appetite was ravenous, especially for
acids. "One day," says Mrs. Boshen,
"my physician asked for a sample of
fluid for chemical analysis. I was
then passing 7 ounces a day, which he
reported as 'very bad,' and that he
could do no more for me. as I had all
the indications of bright's disease. I
then went to a specialist on Madison
Ave., New York, who recommended
electricity, saying that I had spinal
disease. For six months I did not
have a natural movement of the bowels.
I took In ull 125 electrical treatments.
I was much bloated, and have
welched as high as 175 pounds. I
would have periods of semi-unconsciousness,
seeing my friends but beini?
unable to converse. Racking pains
pierced the base of my brain. 1 became
so dizzy that I could not walk
across the floor without support. I
also to a great extent lost my memory.
I then began to use a preparation t
had frequently heard of but confess I
had but little faith In."
, "At first it made me deathly sick,
but after the bile had been eliminated
I begun to amend and dissmissed my
physician. When I commenced the
new treatment I weighed 160 pounds.
In three months I was down to my
natural weight, 140 pounds. I have u
good appetite, my liver performs its
lunctions, my complexion is good, and
no one would think from my appear
ance that I had ever been ill. Sly fluids
are normal, my bowels greatly improved.
My headaches and all dizzi
ness have disappeared " The case of
William Wallace Lounsbury, of 228
Lake St , Chicago, III , is another remarkable
one. He says: "In addition
to being dizzy and having a sallow
complexion, my digestion was very
poor and I suffered almost continually
with severe pains in my bowels. Finally,
I became too ill to leave my
bed and called .In an ullopnth physician
of thirty-seven years practico. He
prescribed quinine. After being in
bed a week without receiving any
benefit, and having night sweats
which colored my linen yellow, I
concluded to take my wife's advice
and try Warner's sufe cure. From the
first it helped me, and after taking six
bottles, with safe pills, I was cured
eutirely of all pain, poor digestion nnd
bloody discharges, a healthy color
took the place or a sallow one, and I
felt like a new creature."
From the above it will be observed
that malaria has no certain localities
for its own,, but lurks wherever bad
air and water predominate. The only
sure method to counteract its poisonous
effects is to check its first developments.
