a young man, unlike tuanv, be did not
look around to see what candidate would
succeed, but pavice bis first obligations
to his state rv voting for Mr.
8priuker. he then in accordance
iih his ideas of the good and the future
for the democratic ptrty, yielded not
to tbe off r which some axpted of per
stnal preferment, but cast bis vote and
his influence to that prominent exponent
of tariff reform, tbe Hon. R. Q. Mills, of

cast upon him here, but congratulations
for bitn, and the people whom it is con

"Peaceful Valley." The play has a
sufficiently unioie name to minify and
interest Mr. Rissell's legion of admirers
in advance. The play abounds
in a number cf strong dramatic and novel
situations and tbe interest is continued
to the finish. The character which Mr.
Kidder has drawn for Mr. Rtif-sell. is an
entirely original and uniq'ie figure to tUe
