Dear Sir: Yon know all abont shoes.

Max O'Rell says that people make a
great mistake in confounding happiness
with pleasure, which are not by any
means synonymous. Pleasure is a pass
ing sensation which oftener brings en
nui and disgust than anything else.
"Happiness," says Mr. O'Rell, "is found
in congenial work, in a regular and
well spent life, in obscurity and retire
ment, in sound and true friendship,
and especially in the love of a man and
a woman who thoroughly appreciate
each other."

and, it is alleged, fed it to her husband.
She was at the same time intimate with
a man named Brierly. Victoria
was often appealed to in her behalf,
but was implacable.

dered by Judge Fursnian in the course
of the second trial of Dr Saniual J.
Kennedy, under indictment for the
murder of "Dolly' Reynolds, at the
Grand Hotel, New York, more than two
year* ago, is attracting an interested at
tention from the legal fraternity and is
said to be incompatible with the convic

termination of his appeal. The decision
rules out the testimony of experts ou
hand writing.
Judge Waterman, of Cnicago lately

OLD ARKANSAW.— FEU. 26.
Manager Buckhalter has just closed
a contract for the apjearance in this
city Thursday Feb. 26th of "Old Arkan
saw," one of the greatrst of scenic at
tractions, by Fred Raymond, author of
the "Missouri Girl," etc.. It is said to
be free from blood and thunder element
so prevelent in melo-dramas, the author
having studied the tastes of the occu
pants of orchestra rhairs as well as the
gallery gods, and has succeeded so well
that the greatest enthusiasm prevades
the entire audience. "Old Arkansaw"
is said to bring tbe audience at once in
sympathy with the actors, whose high
est emotional powers are developed by
the lines and action of the play, while i
the thrilling scenes and situations with j
which the peace abounds keep the au
dience in a suspense that is relieved by
the high comedy scenes that run
through the entire production with rare
naturalness.
PITTSHUBO ORCHESTRA
But three more concerts remain to be
given to complete the sixth season of
the Pittsburg Orchestra, Victor Herbert
Conductor. Unusiial interest attaches
to the concerts next Friday evening and
Saturday afternoon because cf the per
formance of Stanford's "Irish'' sym
phony, for the first time in Pittsburg,
and because the management has dis
covered a real tenor, a tenor of the
Tamango type.
M. Chas. Gauthier who makes his

Grand Opera lloti.se, Pittsburg
Comedy of a pronounced type is what
"The Masked Ball" might be termed,
and in it the Grand Opera House, stock
company will 1m- seen the week of Feb
ruary 25th. This play, refined, artistic,
and funny, was the vehicle in which
John Drew first rode to success as a
star in the theatrical world. Mr. Drew
started out in his first venture in this
clever adaptation from the French, by
Clyde Fitch, and Mr. Drew has been a
particularly bright and whining star
ever since. And more, Maud Ad&ms
was with hini. and Maud Adams made
a hit in "The Masked Ball" that was
little short of tremendous. This clever
play, that brought these two clever
people into prominence, has many
merits, but the chief of them is that it
is funny beyond description. • No print
ed words could beijiu to tell what a com
bination of bright lines and funny busi
ness it is. Players call it a "busy play"
liecause there is so much to do in it.

talking in a front room after dinner the
' the little ones played about the house
and were in the kitchen when the acci
dent occured. In some way they climb
. Ed up and gjt a revolver which was
[ kept on a ?lielf or clipboard supposedly

with tni> weapon it was discharged and
; the bullet struck Lawrence above the
I right eye. went through his head and
: loged under the scalp at the back of his
I head. Two hours later he died. ILL;

7 p ni Saturday evening.
The Coylesville road runs eastward
past St. Fidelis' Catholic college, tlown
a hill into Herman, passes under the
West Penn railroad and up a hill east
ward of the track. The road was cover
ed with a sheet of ice Saturday evening
and coasters from the college and sur
rounding country were enjoying the
sport. They started from the hill in
front of the college and the speed at
tained in the descent carried them part
way up the oposite hill. Here they
would turn around and coast down
again or else let the sleds slide back
ward.
A pled load of college boys started
from the top of the hill, made the usual
run and let their sled start backwards
for the bottom. A party of Herman
boys had started their sled after them
and the sleds reached the bottom from
opposite directions about the same
time. The railroad bridge overhead
prevented them from seeing their
danger, and the two sleds crashed
together. None were seriously hurt

strack in the abdomen by something

caused his death, after suffering treat

NOTE: —The County Commissioners, acting as a board of tax revision, found
it necessary to add a certain per cent to the valuation of real estate in a number
of townships and boroughs in order to equalize assessments, as will be shown by
the records. , , ,
The appeals that may be made by taxables will probably make some changes
in the above statement. Commissioners' office, Butler, Pa., Feb, 19, 1901,
