A paragraph in Sunday's Bulletin
did injustice to tbe Smith Bros., of this
city. The doctor who had it published
was told by tho Smith BroB., when ho left
his traps in their wagon yard, that they
would not be responsible if anything was
stolen, so it was his own look-out. Even
had the case been as he stated it, the mat
ter was too trivial for complaint, as he only
missed two or three straps, probably 00
cents worth in all.
The rcspcctablo portion of tho opera
house gallery should sit down and sit hard
on the hoodlums who gather there at each
entertainment and 'act in a manner that
would not be tolerated in any variety show
in the country. Tho cat calls, howls and
whiBt.ing that go on from half a dozen
young rowdys is a burning disgrace to the
opera houso and to tho city. It would bo
better to closo tho gallery entirely than per
mit it to continue through the season as it
was carried on at tho "Littlo Duchess" pel
formanco Suturday night.
At tho "Romany Ryo" last night a

up. The selection of Bristol's hall was
unanimous and the cnmmitlco was instruct
ed to make contract for it. This hall has
been greatly improved by the addition of
two drossing rooms and a vestibule, which
mukes it more desirable for a small party
(limited to 25 couples as is "The Ancient"
clud) thau the "Ideal Leaguo" hall, as it
will be warmer for winter and more ex
cliuivo. The club at its first meeting
elected, or rather accepted, a list of mimes
for members some of whom have not r
sponded to the invitation extended by the
president of tbe club. It is geuerally tin
derstood that all who do not attend the
meeting Wednesday evening and sign the
by-laws or authorize somo other member to
sign, w'll bo placed on a footing with all
others, and can only be received by reguUr
b illot and unanimous election. The club
adjourned on Saturday night to meet for
general business at the residence of Mrs.
Burnett on Tenth street at half past seven
to-morrow (Wednesday) evening.
The gypsy women have a sly way of
baiting intended victims. They will ad
dress a few remarks to tho person, and
then suddenly start in with assertions con
cerning the past and predictions for the fu
ture, only to stop en suddenly and ask tor
$1.00 for the rest of thoj story. The same
trick is played in many branches of busi
ness. The circus parade, with ils music
and glitter, its wonderful animals inclosed
cagef, and free tight rope performance, is
given to excite the curiosity of the suort-
ing populace and make them gladly yield
up their half dollar to see the rest of it.
The train boy rushes through the ct ath
and drops a peanut in front of each pas
senger, and then comes around to see how
many want some more at the price of beer
"five a glass." The cheap story pipers
issue thousands of copies containing the
Crst few chapters of ecYeral continued
stories, and these being circulated, are
read, aud create a demand for the ensuing
numbers of the paper to see how the stories
turn out. The poker player, with a new
victim in tow, lets him win a few timet", in
order to make him "stkae his pile" and
lose. And so it goes, ono half the world
baiting, the other half biting. The gypsies
as a clnss, understand human naturo better
than anybody, and they catch many suck
ers with their curiosity-baited hooks.

Immense Hit Last Night.
TL'is splendid sensational melo-drama
was presented at tho opera house last night
by a company of such unexceptionable tal
ent as put to shame tho many wiseacres
who knew in advance it "was a snide af
fair" was "not the original company," etc.,
etc. The audieiice.wiis large, good humor
ed, and attested its appreciation of both tho
acting and thu scenery by frequent bursts
of genuine enthusiastic applause.
Tho work necessary to produce thoRrand
scenic effect which embrace many diffi
cult stands, as in tho "Lights o' London,"
"Tho World," etc., mint bo very groat, and
could bo accomplished only by a very great
outlay of money as well as tho employment
of thoroughly skilled stngo carpenters
scenic artists, etc,
The acting throughout was most excel
lent, in many of tho scenes reaching a
very high order of dramatic art. Tho
lateness of tho hour renders it impossible
to particularise, but we hopo to have more
to say as to tho individuality of tho com
pany in the near future.
This piece will be repeated this evening,
and those who wish to enjoy a treat, should
not fail to bo present. Tlie prices bavo not
tocn chonged 75 and 50 cents, including

A Iiemarkable Escape.
Mrs. Mary A. Dailey, of Tunkhannock,
Pa., was afflicted for six years with Asthma
and Bronchitis, during which time the
be6t physicians could give no relief. Her
life was despaired of, until in last Octo
ber she procured a bottle of Dr. King's
rew Ducovery, when immediate relief was
felt, and by continuing its use for a shorr
time she was completely cured, gaining in
flesh 50 lbs. in a few months.

From Death's Door.
M. M. Devereaux, of Ionia, Mich., was a
sight to behold. He says: "I had -no ac
tion of Kidneys and suffered terribly. My
legs were as big as my body and my body
as big as a barrel. Tho best doctors gave
me up. Finally I tried Kidney-Wort. In
four or five days a change came, in eight or
ten days I was on feet, and now I am com
pletely cured. It was certainly a miracle."
All druggists keep Kidney-Wort which is
put up both in liquid and dryform.
In the Hop Porous Plaster the virtues of
Fresh Hops are combined with strengthen
ing and stimulating balsams, and its cures

cious and thorough than any liniment or
