Wonderful Accomplishment of Kellogjr,
the ??BIrd Warbler."
The San Francisco Chronicle says of
Kellogg, who will appear in tho Opera
House on the 10th, under the auspices
of tho Lyceum:
"Last evening thore was introduced
to tho Sao Francisco public a young
man wi'.h a power of vocalization which
is astonishing. Charles D. Kellogg
was advertised upon tho program as a
' bird warbler," but thero were few, if
any, who had any iiloa of the nature of
bis wonderful accomplishment. Miss P.
B. Crowell sat at the piano and played
tho first birs of the ''G retchen Ga
votte," and immediately there chimed
in with the notes of the piano, varying
and improvising upon the melody, but
always in pnrf et harmony, tho re
markable no cs of Mr. Kellogg's voioe.
It was not whist'ing, nor was H ' yod
iing" In which so many voealisls are
experts. It was so unlike anything
ever heard bafjre, and so boautifu',
that the audience was spellbound.?
"Bird warbing" is the proper name for
it, for it is a perfect reproduction of
the singing of birds; but he does what
tho feathered sjngater cannot do?he
interprets in bird language tho most
difllcult musical compositions."

and have baen so bid at times I could
not get out of bed, much less go to

liniment until It was all a blister. T
tried numerous remedies but without
them doing mo one bit of good. Tho
secretions from the kidneys were as red
as b'ood, full of sediment and I could
not hold thorn, especially at night
when my rest was broken, on account
of my having to get up a number of
times. I learned of Doan's Kidney
Pil's and sent to the Palmetto Drug
Co* for a box. I did not b?lievo thoy
would do me any more good than tho
other remedies 1 had tried, but I was
mistaken. I felt better tin very next

strong and the aching disappeared. I
do not havo to get up at nights now at
