rltU4tMl Because Their Search Cn
earthh Nothing "Outrreoii."
One f loppy morning, several weeks ago.
two young women living on the Hill met at
tbe home of one of thorn for the purpose of
dirwectii g their fellow men and women, com
paring i tote and exchanging experiences, and
in due t me made a mutual discover? that life
in St. P ml was decidedly flat and stale, If not
altogetl er unprofitable.
'Now. in New York," yawned Marion.
wearily, "when society bee-ins to DalL the
girls go slumming and do nice things like
that." Marion is a blonde, and looks as if
her spirit walked only in the sunlight of
angels' wings. " But here the most exciting
tiling w. ever do is to eive a masouerade.
which it lakes us a lot of worry and work and
exfieuso, and when it is over we find we have
only succeeded in making ourselves perfectly
nmeous ty a inisgiinlca selection of costume,
and ha o had nothing but a dancine party
after all "
MaiKln thought they ought to be able to de
vise something that would have at lea-st a
grain of spice. "What do you say to going
to the d me museum:'" she said abruptly.
1 here might tie something in it."
"Them is," exclaimed Maude triumphantly,
am it s a 'Human Bulloon.' I read so in
the mor ling paper."
'I su ipose he would have a few clothes
on?" remarked Marion doubtfully.
"Oh, f course; tightfi anyway. Let's go."
And mo it happened that the two daring
young 1: id ire concealed their aristocratic fea
tures tx-hind thick veils, and trusting their
lives to the integrity of the cable (as the first
step in their reckless adventure, perhaps),
earned, nn by the common route and sneaked
aye, verily, sneaked into tbe dime museum.
"Heavens! What smells sof" gasped Ma
rion at the top of the stairs.
."It's the aroma of novelty, machere. You
may ehi nge, yon may alter the house if you
will, hi t the scent of the freak will cling
roumt it mill.
"That sounds as if you had been here be
fore," and Marion cast an eye of suspicion
upon ne- mom I.
"Well, I haven't, but I went into a side
show on -e nt a circus. Marion Hilltop," she
whisper.!, grasping that young woman's arm
with a I Inck-and blue clutch, "I actually be
lieve tin t man is in his skin!
"NoiiM-iise! lA-t go my arm. It's pink
silk, am not much of a fit either; but it does
look a lirtle like skin al first."
The human bulloon rose and spoke his little
piece; then drawing a prolonged inspiration
he expanded his chest and stomach until his
body wt s more than twice the original size,
held it moment, and with a slow expira
tion gra lunny decreased to bis normal pro
"It m ikes me sick," declared Marion.
"I Ix lieve it's a trick," rejoined Maude.
Ill bet anything it's some kind of a rubber
arrange nent that he blows up some way
with air LiPt s look at the monkeys."
1 hai ks; l meet too many fc.ngu.sh apes
caporinf around in society to find anything
amusing in the African Secies. Maude, what
do you suppose the men are looking at
through those round bolos over there on the
"Well, I've been watching, aud there hasn't
a single woman gone over yet I expect it's
something pretty liad. Would you dare look!
Marcifu. goodness! Is the place on fire r
No, iciotn," responded a bystander, eject
ing a stream of tobacco juice from a swollen
jaw. " it's the crowd a-rushin' down to aee
TFT FT TAKE IN THE BHOW.
The t'0 girls, determined to see it all, fol
lowed tbe unsavory throng, and to this day
the poss ble impropriety that hid beyond that
row of t ull's eye holes remains a tantalizing
mystery to them. The ierfomi.mce of trained
seals tLey found really interesting. The
juvenile seal was quile as kittenish as the
stage juvenile always is; tho topical song
seal sanj: the usu:d number of verses with
the trad tioual lack of voice, aud received the
same old encores; the funny business bore the
authora lve stamp of rie old age, and on the
whole i he entertainment was just as well
worth sieing as two-thirds of the combina
tions pn , upon the regular boards, and had a
decided id vantage over the latter in that the
perform vs were seals and not persons.
"I didn't see any fur on them that looked
like my alskin coat," commented Marion as
the curtiin fell.
"Pern ips they've shed their coats. I think
I've react that some animals do shed their out
side skin when they got in a warmer cli
"No, think you're wrong, Maude,, about
that. But pei'hnps the fur grows on the in
side, I shouldn't wonder if it did, because if
it was on the outside it would got so stuck
with ice crawling around on icebergs"
"How do you know they dor interrupted
"Beca lse, don't yon remember, the picture
in our geographies always represented seals
as sunning themselves on iceliergsr
At the foot of the stairs they found a man
selling tickets for "a first class theatrical per
formanc by the English Novelty company
of celebrated artists; gentleman will please
remove ' heir hats.
"A V;U"iety show," whispered Marlon.
"I've always been dying to go to one.
guess wr won't buy reserved seats, but stand
back bete. We may have to leave."
And a "variety" show it was, but absolute
ly free from any Impropriety. They found
it sumc ently interesting to remain to tbe
close, ah hough considerably disappointed at
the absonce of anything sensational. The
vocalist had better voices than the average
singer it first class burlesque, and were cos
tumed r. it her more modestly. The jokes, if
somewluit moss grown, were at least not un
pleasantly suggest! va, and the specialties
were all cleverly done.' Tbe artist who played
popular airs on a violin with anything under
tbe light or the sun irom a washboard to an
old shoe as'Maudo afterword said, gave bet
ter musij than Hoey does with his peculiar
instrument in "A Parlor Match," to say
nothing of the man who proved that real
melody an be extracted from a nny whis
tle in tbe hands or mouth, rather of
"Well, we ha vent secu or heard a single
thing tho least bit outrageous, have wef" re
marked Marion, in a disgusted tone, as they
walked ( own Seventh street. "Out it's been
a great lark. Wonder if any one saw us.
Suppose we wind off with blue points and a
pint bote le!"
Maude hesitated. "I would, but I want to
be at home by 6, and I've got to change my
gown, and curl my bang, and"
"Maut e Anthony, you have an engagement

Cheery Words I
From a gentleman of Texas to his own
people, and all others over the country,.
Hear what he says:
I have been a practical druggist in
Tyler for a number of years, and in that
time have had occasion to examine, try,
and notice the efiect of nearly all the
highly recommended preparations or pat
ent medicines on the market, and as I
have suffered untold misery myself, the
past number of years, from a severe form
of inflammatory rheumatism, and could
find nothing to cure or relieve me, I had
almost drawn a conclusion that all pat
ent medicines were more or less frauds
until about one year ago, I was in
duced ty a friend now living in Tyler, to
try a preparation known as 3 B, or Bo-
HDift Blood Balm, and after a long per
suasion on his part, I finally made up
my mind to make one more effort to rid
myself of tbe terrible affliction; and it
now affords me the greatest pleasure of
my life to state to the citizens of Smith
county that I am entirely cured, with no
traces or the disease left, and all effected
by tbe magic healing properties of B B.
a., which 1 consider the grandest, purest
and most powerful blood remedy known
to man. I have been subject to in
flammatory attacks since ten years of
age, and up to the present time have bad
four. The last spell came on me in
November, 1885, over a year
ago. at which time I was
confined to my bed for eight weeks, pass
ing the nights in misery, with no sleep
except when produced by narcotics and
various opiates. The week previous to
using B. B. B. up to that time I bad onlv
eaten six meals, and could scarlely sit up
without support; but after using three
bottles I was able to relish m meals and
to walk up town, and after six bottles
had been used, thank heaven, I was en
tirely cured, and not the slightest pain
felt since that time. When I returned to
business in February, my weight was 145
pounds, but gradually increased until my
regular weight was again attained. 210
pounds. The noticeable fact in what I
have so cheerfully staled is, that this un
paralleled and remarkable discovery. Is
B. B. , cured me in midwinter, al the
very time my sufferings and misery were
the greatest. 1 take it on myself as a
practical druggist to heartily, cheerfully
as well as conscientiously, recommend
this glorious blood remedy to all sufferers
of rheumatism or blood troubles, and not
onlv myself, but the firm ot McKay &
Adams, who handle it. will cheerfully in
dorse its superior merits.
