May 22, 1809.
A TELEPHONE COMPANY IS NOT
ENTITLED TO THE BENEFIT ipV''
THE ACT OF CONGRESS ALLOW?
ING THE USE OK POST ROADS
BY TELEGRAPH COMPANIES.
This was a suit by the telephone com?
pany to restrain tho City of Richmond
from interefrlng with Its poles, wires,
etc., on the streets of said city, the com?
pany claiming the right to use the
streets without the consent of the city
under the act of Congress which allows
to telegraph companies the use of all
post roads, etc. The lower court decid?
ed in favor of the plaintlfr, and the city
The Court says:
The principal question In this case is
whether the Circuit Court and Circuit
Court of Appeals erred In holding that
the appellee was entitled to claim the
benefit of the act of Congress approved
July 24th, 1S66. (After reciting the act
in question and referring to decisions
upon It, the Court continues):
But independently of nny question
as to the extent of the authority grant?
ed to "telegraph" companies by the act
of 1806, we are of opinion that the
courts below erred In holding that the
plaintiff. In respect to the particular
business It was conducting, could In?
voke the protection of the act. The
plaintiff's charter, it Is true, describes
\t as a telephone company and tele?
graph company. Still, as disclosed by
the bill and the evidence In the ease,
'he business In which It was engaged
7 nd for the protection of which against
hostile action It Invoked the aid of the
Federal Court, wns the business trans
Tcted by using what Is commonly called
i telephone. It may be thnt If the
telephone had been known and In use
when the act was pnssed, Congress
would have embraced In Its provisions
"Orripnnlos employing Instruments for
electrically transmitting articulate
?meecb. But the question is not what
Congress might have done In 1SR6. nor
what It may or ought now to do, but
?vhat was In its mind when enacting
?he statute In question. ? * ? When,
therefore, the not of ISW speaks of tele?
graph pnmp'n'os It could have meant,
inly stich companies ns employed the
means then used or embraced by ex
istlng Inventions for the purpose of
? rapTrlMlner messages merely by
?ound?"of Instruments nnd by signs, or
ivrljlnvs. Wo now odhtrlire that the

This wns an action to recover from

months. The plaintiff alleged '.?that - In

they would receive the same, but was
afterwards prevented from delivering

the contract that, "should the quality

fendant without the condition or qual?

had he been permitted to perform the

The Philadelphia Public Ledger says
of "Mile. Fin." which is to be presented
at the Academy of Music next Tuesday,
"Mile. Fill" was introduced to an au?
dience that crowded the Chestnut Street
Opera House last evening, and proved
to be the brightest French farce that
has been seen here for a long time. Iz
treats very lightly the old subject di?
vorce, but In most original fashion. The
play treats delicate subjects with a
great deal of freedom, but It Is filled
with humor, and Its originality makes
It refreshing. There were many cur?
tain recalls, not only after the first two
acts, but at the end of the play, the In?
terest being fairly sustained In the last
act by the Introduction of new matter,
and the audience was hearty in Its ex?
pression of approval. Scats on sale this
morning. Prices: 25c. to $1.
The N. Y. Mercury says of "The Mys?
terious Mr. Bugle," which comes to the
Academy next "Wednesday and Thurs?
day, and Thursday matinee:
"The Mysterious Mr. Bugle" is billed
as n new farce in three acts, and it
may honestly be called a legitimate
farce. It certainly made a most fav?
orable Impression on last night's au?
dience at the Lyceum, and it is fairly
entitled to be classed among the few
real successes of the year. Mrs. lty
Icy throughout has shown wonderful
skill In her work; she has built.a play
that grows stronger from the first net
or. to the close. The first act is deli?
cately artistic, and tho second and
third abound in amusing scenes and
complications that are handled with the
certain touch of a skilled cratsman."
The appearance of the distinguished
actor, Frederick Warde, In "The Lion'a

Pghtful anticipation. Mr. Warde, who

not only on account of his being the
foremost expositor of classic roles on
the American stage and the pleasing
entertainment which he always pre?

A MM f Dollar lllnriiK,
The day before the battle of Wll
llamsburg the writer hereof heard a
Confederate soldier offer a silver halt
dollar for a biscuit. He held It in his
fingers, high above his head, as he
marched on toward Wllllainsburg,
shouting his offer repeatedly as he
moved on. At last he got a response.
A whitish looking fellow (not a soldier,
thank goodness!), wearing a paper cap
and a long apron, saw the gleaming
silver, ran back to what was evidently
a cooking-tent, and soon re-appeared
with a biscuit?one small biscuit. It
corresponded with the cook hi size,
however; he was small, very small, and
he felt smaller, no 'doubt, when he took
the money for the biscuit, and every?
body Jeered at and hissed him.
The rest of us that morning had re?
ceived a ration of hard corn on the ear,
filched from our artillery-horses?three
small ears apiece. Some men received
only one ear, and glad to got It, as
others got nothing at all that day. The
Yankees, in those days, sometimes call?
ed us "Corn-fcd-euates"; but they hard?

for men, women, children.
The concensus of opinion
and years of experience com?
bine to maintain that pure
woolen underwear is the most
htalthful and comfortable in
which to clothe the human
When we consider that we.
pass two-thirds of our lives,
from infancy to old age, in our
underwear, no further argu?
ment is necessary to prove
I that the matter of good or bad
j health and general comfort or
I discomfort, is most closely
connected with the class of
material worn next to the skin.
Here are a few reasons why
"STUTTGARTER" IS THE BEST
It is made of pure natural sheet's
wool, which is a non-conductor of
heat, viz: H does not conduct or draw
heat away quickly.
It is porousxind light. Although it
absorbs the moisture off the skin, it
does not absorb it into the fibre.which
is actually unabsorbent and somewhat
oily, thus allowing the moisture to
The natural heat of the body is
greatly lost by what is called "radia
1 tion." We are always radiating heat
from our bodies, and if we were turned
into the open air in different climates
without clothes, we should die of loss
of animal heat, or of exposure, as it is
called, very much quicker than wc
would die from want of food.
Wool, as a non-conductor of heat
when worn next to the skin, allow us
to keep for the important uses of di?
gestion, energy, etc., the heat which
the food and air has made.
Wc are not supposed to preserve all
the heat that the body creates by ex?
ertion in the course of a day's work,
and we desire to get rid of it gradu?
ally. We must dispose of it in such
a manner if we do not wish to subject j
ourselves to rheumatism, inflamma?
tion, bronchitis, etc.
Nature aids us in the evaporation of
the perspiration, and k is in order to
allow this to escape from the body (so
that it shaH not lie soaking upon it)
that we must wear porous undercloth?
The foregoing facts should convince
even the most skeptical that any one
wishing to wear garments beneficial to
health should never wear next to the
skin anything but wool, which means
