Henry Wolfsohn, just returned

of engagements for the coming season

of Moriz Rosenthal, the great pianist,

last season created quite a stir in the
artistic world of Europe. He will make

He Meant Well.
The story of the Irishman who wrote his
friend, saying, ''Telegraph me If you don't
get this letter," was equaled yesterday in a
local business house. One of the office men
came down and found that he had left hi*
keys behind. He sent to his wife for them,
and the messenger returned with the Infor
mation that the keys were not there. At this
juncture George ■ , a fellow clerk, said:
"Why, I found your keys."
"Where are they?" said the first clerk.
"I have them in my pocket," said George.
"I pushed a note through the silt of your
desk, telling you that I had them."
"Well you ldot," said the first, "how was I
to get the note when the desk was locked?"
GAIN IN WEIGHT.
A TRAINED JfC-jB GAINED FIFTY
THREE POUNDS BY USING A
One of the Moat Remarkable Results
From the Gazette, Yonkers, N. Y.
"I don't look much like a living
skeleton now, do I? And yet two years
ago I weighed Just seventy-two
pounds," said Mrs. J. W. Coffey, of 55
Warburton avenue, Yonkers, N. V., to
a reporter. And we agreed with her
for she certainly looked anything but
a living skeleton, but rather bore the
appearance of a plump and attractive
lady in excellent health and spirits.
Continuing she said:
"I had lost my appetite and waa
wasting away In flesh, losing some fifty
pounds in a few months. Doctors said
I was threatened with consumption. I
was under what was regarded as first
class medical treatment, but it had ap
parently little or no effect, for I kept
getting worse until I was so weak that
J could not attend to my household
duties and could hardly walk. My
husband and everybody who saw me
thought surely that I would die, and
there seemed no help for me.
"Tonics and stimulants and medicines
all seemed useless, and I grew worse
and worse until at last I resolved to
seek some new remedy — one entirely
out of the usual line of nauseous drugs
and doses of stuff which seemed to
take away what little relish I might
perhaps otherwise have had for food.
A friend told me of some wonderful
cures effected by Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills for Pale People and I bought a
box. The effect from their use waa
noticeable from the first and soon ap
peared almost miraculous, for it seemed
pretty nearly like the raising of one
from the dead.
"I soon commenced to eat, something
I had scarcely done before for weeks
and soon began to gain in flesh and
strength. I went one day to the
doctor's office and he was surprised at
the change in me for the better. I had
to confess that I had been taking the
pills, and he was broadminded enough
to advise me to continue what was
evidently doing me so much good. I
took, in all, six boxes, and Increased in
weight from 72 to 125 pounds, which is
my regular and normal weight."
"Are you sure the cure is perma
"Well, yes. My work is that of a
trained nurse, which means, as you
probably know, Irregular hours and at
times great exhaustion. During the two
years since my recovery I have had
many engagements, and through them
all have continued in good health. I
take pleasure in bearing testimony to
the remarkable power of this great
medical discovery. I know of other
cures effected by It. A friend of mine
suffered greatly at her monthly periods.
; One box relieved, and three boxes cured
I her. But I know of no case equal to
I mine, for my situation was critical,
j desperate and almost hopeless."
Mrs. Coffey has lived in Yonkers for
I sixteen years, and for twelve years
j has followed the business of attending
the sick, excepting only the period of
i her illness. She has hundreds of ac-
I quaintances and friends who know her
to be capable and trustworthy. Many
of them know how very ill she was and
how remarkable was her recovery. The
pills have a large sale In Yonkers and
Westchester county, which will be
greatly Increased as their merits be
come better known, for they seem to
be one of the medical marvels of the
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills contain in a
condensed form, all the elements neces
sary to give new life and richness to
the blood and restore shattered nerves
They are an unfailing specific for such
diseases as locomotor ataxia, partial
paralysis, St. Vltus' dance, sciatica,
neuralgia, rheumatism, nervous head
ache, the after effect of la grippe, pal
pitation of the heart, pale and sallow
complexions, all forms of weakness
either in male or female. Pink Pills
are sold by all dealers, or will be sent
post paid on receipt of price, 50 cents

RUfIS LIKE A PULLEY
ST. PAUL MAN INVENTS WHAT
IS KAwVN AS A LACING
WORK OF RUDOLPH PLEINS.
A SIMPLE AFFAIR WHICH IS
LIKELY TO REVOLUTIONIZE
CUTS SHOWING HOW IT ACTS.
The Strain Upon One Part of the
Lace Exactly What It Is on
Rudolph C. Pleinß, of St. Paul, is
shaking hands with his friends over
having secured a patent for a lacing
eyelet, which he claims will revolution
ize shoe lacing. Referring to the mat
ter last evening he said:
"My invention relates to improve
ments for lacing-eyelets for shoes,
gloves, leggings, and the like, Its ob
ject being to provide a form of eyelet
through which the ordinary lacing will
freely run, and thus adapt the fabric or
garment to the different positions of
the wearer without undue strain upon
any portion of the lacing, and also to
adapt the article to be instantly loos
ened when the lacing is untied, by
simply pulling the parts a&sunder, the
lacing freely running through the open
"To this end my invention consists in
providing each of the eyelet-openings
with a transverse pivot-pin on which
is perfectly journaled a sheave or
sleeve, upon which the lacing runs in
the manner of a belt over a pulley, the
walls of the opening adjacent the sides
of the pin being the exposed portion of
the fabric, whereby the same will yield
to permit the lacing to pass through.
"My invention furtherl consists in the
specific features of construction herein
after particularly described and
"In the accompanying drawings, fig
ure 1 is a perspective view of a shoe
shown fitted with my invention, illus
trating the manner in which the lacing
can be applied so as to be inside of
the shoe and concealed from view.
Fig. 2 is a detail outside view of a por
tion of a shoe-upper, shown fitted with
my Invention with the lacin* under-
neath or concealed. Fig. 3 Is a reverse
or Inside view of the same. Fig. 4is a
detail of one form of my invention, and
Figs. 6 and 6 are similar details illus
trating modified means for holding the
pivot-pin in place in the eyelet-opening.
"In the drawings, let A and B rep
resent the parts of the garment or the
flaps of a shoe united by the lacing 2.
Through the adjacent edges of the
parts A and B are arranged the eyelet
openings C. Spanning each of said
openings and anchored in the »id« wall*
of the same by means of the clips 3 Is
the pivot-pin 4, upon which Is pref
erably arranged the loose sheave or
sleeve 5. The clips 3 are clinched upon
the fabric, one upon each side of the
opening, and the ends of the pivot-pin
are journaled or anchored therein.
"Fig. 5 is an inside view of an eye
let-opening, showing a modified form of
clip for holding the pivot-pin in place.
In this form the clips 6 are attached
to the fabric in a manner similar to
those shown in Fig. 4, the outer ends
of the clips being straight so as to form
the end walls of a rectangular eyelet
"In Fig. 6 is shown still another way
of anchoring the ends of the pivot-pin
in the sides of the eyelet-opening. In
this construction the pivot-pin Is
formed with flattened ends 7, having
holes through which to insert the rivet.
The cads of the pivot are passed be
tween the two layers of the fabric on
the opposite sides of the opening and
then riveted In place, as shown.
"By means of my Invention the shoe
may be laced in the ordinary manner —
i. c., with the lacing both Inside and
outside the shoe — or, if preferred, the
lacing may be entirely inside of the
shoe, as shown in Fig. 1. When it is
desired to open the shoe for purpose of
removing it or for lacing it upon the
foot of the wearer, the side wails of the
upper are adapted to be grasped by the
hands and pulled apart, the lacing run
ning freely through the openings.
Where the lacing is applied to the
wrist of a glove or to a legging or sim
ilar article, it may be loosened in the
same manner, and when the garment
is in use and the lacing fastened it can
be bent or twisted freely to adapt itself
to the movement of the wearer, the lac
ing freely running through the eyelet
openings in the same manner as a rope
over a sheave, so that the strain is not
brought to bear upon any one portion
or loop of the lacing, but is distributed
