The Chinese theatre, says a New
York paper, is doing a rushing busl
ness with a play called "The Haunted
Tea Uhest," which was begun in
April and will probablv last well
into Jnlv. Tbe plot is exceedingly
interesting, and as it developes from
week to week the audiences become
larger and more enthusiastic. Jusl
now the price of admission to the
theatre is only 15 cents, but tome
times, during the engagement of
some particularly accomplished
actor, it is raised to more than dou
ble that sum. A great many tour
ists of American birth visit the
theatre and sit for hours, apparently
deeply interested in all that goes on
on tbe stajre.

HER WEDDING PRESENT.
Marls Was So Doubt as Much Surprised
as Freddie Was.
Young Mr. Smithcrs, having eaten an
excellent dinner, sat ' down to smoke a
good cigar while his wifo ran up stairs
to make her toilet for the theater.
So peaceful was bis state of mind
that he did not even look accusingly at
his watch wheu, after the promised
"miuuto" had developed - into CO, she
entered the room.
"Seems to mo that yon are looking
very nice tonight, my dear," he re
marked. "I am so glad yon think so, darling.

tho money for this ouo myself. "
"But how did you earn"
"Oh, after you left I fell to thinking
what a 1 it of money $25 was to spend
on a wedding present for Marie when I
really needed no many things. Then an
idea struck inc. I remembered all those
pretty things I found in your big trunk
after we were married tho ones that
horrid girl, whoever she was, sent back
when the engagement was broken. I
wouldn't have one of them myself, but
it seemed a pity for them to lio there,

foundation of this mirage is a reality
and ouly unrecognizable because of

it is a work of sgmo mysterious remnant
of our race that once occupied tho pole,
or whether this is some fanciful feature
of tho frost, as the peculiar shrubbery

If tho disease has already gained a foot

and even if it were otherwise a few
general rules would be just as essential

Iu tho first place, then, we must un
derstand exactly the condition, of the

of treatment that it often results in a
complete or at least a temporary cure.
Consumption is ouo of the most de

A glass of something warm, like hot

be allowed in preparing for the bed.
Tho patient should sleep ia blankets,
