The Wife of an Ambassador
recently put the following question to the
daughter of one of our Merchant princes at
a Presidential levee "My dear, I was told
before I visited America, that your country
women were not remarkable for tine teeth
I find it quite the contrary. Take your
own for instances. Pray whit dentifrice
do you use? ! -"I havo used SOZOOONT
for years and prefer it to any other," was the
response. Header, follow her example!
Woman's True Friend.
A friend in need is a friend indeed. This
none can deny, especially when assiatanre
ia rendered when one is Borely afflicted
with disease, more particularly thouu com
plaints and weakness so common to our
female population. Every woman should
know that Electric Bitters are wonmn's true
friend, and will positively restore her to
health, even when all other remedies fail.

Several prominout colored people of

and enterprise is comraandablo.
Yesterday forenoon tho body of a negro
was picked out t lie Ohio river uoar slu re
below the warehouses. It is believed to be
the body of the negro who jumped from
the steamer Sherlock and who, in a fight
on the steamer, cut another negro now
lying at tho marine hospital, very badly,
but, it seems, not fatally as was as first be
lievod. If the "Ideal Leaguers" will go (o IV
ducah and produce "Engaged" there as well
as they did here, they will make a big hit
Tho Paducahans, we aro sure, would give
them fully as good a reception s the
amateurs from that city received here. We
would urge upon the "Ideals" an earnest
consideration of this nronosition. Several

find room, but they come and go, and by
that means new comers are taken care of.

could not Btand the lack of shade and
scenery, and spring water drawn from a
Limited space in yesterday's Bulletin
made it necessary to condense the com
ments upon some of those who took part
in the play Tuesday night. The manner in
which Mr. Korsmeyer enacted the part of
"Mr. Symperson" particularly deserved a
more extended eulogy. Mr. Korsmeyer had
one of the leading parts and the manner in
which he sustained it would have left no
doubt in the minds of those who didn't
know better, but that he was "a profes
sional." Always calm aud serious, as be
came him in the character he portrayed, he
delivered what he hail to say fluently, in a
strong voice, well managed in respect to
cadences and with marked dramatic tflVct.
A stranger named C. Gallighcr was
very wroth yesterday at what, according to
his version, was an outrageous attack upon
him by the bar keeper of an up-towo sa
loon. He swore out a warrant with an em
phatic oath and proceeded with the offioor
to seive it and bring the guilty party be
fore Magistrate Comings for trial. The
trial was had and the testimony, even to that
of complainant, went to show that Mr. Gal
lighcr had himself provoked the disturb
ance and been tho stressor in it from be
gining to end, meeting the efforts of the
barkeeper to quiet him only with renewed
violence. The court discharged the defen
dant and fined complainant $5 aud cost.
In the limited time we had for criticiz
ing "Engaged" we could not give the sing
ing of Miss Adella Gordon such a notice as
it deserved. Her song was really the feature
of the evening. Although she was known
to lie onu ol tho best singers iu Cairo, the
power and richness ol her voice as develop
ed on tin; Opt ra House stago was a surprise
to her friends and the audience. It filled
thu house with melody without any ap
parent effort of the singer. Every verse and
almost every turn of the song, was applaud
ed to the echo. For an encore Miss Gordon
sang a lieautilul lit tic waltz song, "Peek-a-
B iii," that served nicely aa an echo to the
powerful song that preceded it. it is suffi
cient for us to say, and the audience will
be with ui, that Mias Adella scored s
triumph in "Engaged," both in acting and
singing, that sho and her friends can
always remember with pride and pleasure
as buing full and complete.
List Monday a man living at Cane

man, the wife of tbo man for whom he was
working. He alleged that he had for

- The piincipal attraction ut the Theatre
Comiqut Tuesday night vus an cngHgement
with gloves between Dick Cutuiiiirgs, stage
manager, and Paddy Hughes, a young tow
bimiiiiiin of some fame among his kind ss a
"sludger." Dick had previously had a neat
get-to with Tom Adams, in which consid
erable nkill was displayed on both sides,
and when lie faced Hughes, Iu showed
strong i-igns of fatigue. But ho didn't flinch,
partly, perhaps, because bo was dottirmined
to carry out the programme and partly be
cause he didn't kuow just what manner of
of man his opponent was. Paddy Hughes
is a tough young fellow, athletic, with
muscles of steel, to ine a figurative expres
sion, ac brave as a lion, but easily aroused to
anger, when he becomes ricklcwand dan
gen us. lu a rough and tumble tight he
would probably bo a uuir.h for fcveral men
like Cunmiing". From the lir.it he rushed
in on his exhausted opponent liko a wild
beast, beat down his guard and with a well
direct blow straight from the shoulder,
sent him reeling to the floor. This operation
was repeated three or four times during
the first two rounds; every mad rush that
Hughes made sent dimming staggering
againaj the scenery, or hanging limp and
apparently unconscious up m tho ropes. It
was decidedly a onesided affair from the
start uud the third round was a mere pre
tense; Cummings was completely "played
out," barely able to raise his arms and
keep his feet, and Hughes only tapping
him playfully on the cheek once in awhile.
It seemed to bo Hughes' iiflention from the
first, not to exhibit skill as a sparrer, but
to beat his opponent down and show that
he was the superior in strength and skill as
a go-as-you-please fighter. In this he suc
ceeded entirely ; but it is probable that,
hai ho confined his efforts more to an e xhi
bition tf skill with the gloves, and had his
opponent been in good condition, be would
not have gained so easy a victory. Cum
mings was out as fresh as ever yesterday,
the several bard knocks with soft gloves
having left no scars or injury.

ARE THE LOUISIANA LOTTERY
The two commissioners who superintend
their single-number drawings, when inter
viewed on the subject, reluctantly admitted
that the numbors which wore placed in the
tubes and put in the wheel whero only
counted twice a year. They draw the lot
tery every month. Is not tit is a barefaced
fraud? Their excuse is that it would take
ten days' labor, with four assistants. How,
then, can any ticket-buyer in this lottery
know that the number on bis ticket has a
corresponding number in tho wheel? If
they desire an honest drawing, why dothry
not, on the day of and just before their
drawings, allow the tiuket- holder the
privilegu of calling out his number and bi c
hat is placed in ttie wheel so lie then can
have some chance of its being drawn out
with a prize from the other wheel? Other
lotteries have done so. Under their sys
tem, why don't they make their capital
1,000,000? They might as well. I.- not
the published list of winners in their lot
tery also a fraud? It is very easy for a few
dollars to get purpons who are willing to
let them use their names as tbo holders of
a big prize. It is any longer a wonder how
they controlled thc,Louisiana Constitutional
Convention, courts and legislatures and a
former postoffice administration? Under
this system of drawings, it will bo no
trouble to make money enough to control
and rim out very government. From tho
