It is one of the absolute impossi?

should know that these remedies
reach only the surface, and can
never cure them. Catarrh invariably
leads to Consumption, and to delay

Mr. Pratt left town last Tuesday and
has not beou heard from since. 'His ac?
counts with the Govt rnment are all right.
This shortage Is in the funds which were
placed in his bauds by Troy and New
York brewers about a week previous to
the time the Dineuey tariff hill went into
effect. The money was deposited with
Mr. Pratt by the brewers .for the pur?
chase of revenue stamps in order to ob?
tain the advantage of a provision of tho
old tariff law.
Owing to Mr. Pratt's continued ab?
sence the authorities at Washington to?
day appointed his deputy, H. P. Draper,
to take charge of affairs for the revenue
Jepartment here. It has !heen known
for some time that Mr. Pratt was in
financial difficulties, brought about prin?
cipally through disastrous real estate
speculations. His bondsmen became fear?
ful of his financial condition, asked to be
relieved, and Mr. Pratt transferred his
bond of $200.000 to tho City Trust Com?

AT THE ACADEMY TO-NIGHT.
We often bear the remark that farce
comedy is on the wane. Nothiug can he
further from the truth. It is true sev?
eral farce comedy stars and double stars
have had to discontinue stellar work and
travel on salary, but the cause is easily
ascertained, in that the gieat majoi ity of
the farce comedy ta'eut is not versatile.
Many are capable of doing some certain
things cleverly, but their capabilities are
confined to those few things only. In
most cases ii is Individuality that makes
the public take kindly to them, and they
not only gain a Meeting pi estige but
make nemey rapidly. Hut when year
tiller year they come around doing ideu
tically the same thing and in a great
many instances with no perceptible im?
provement, the public tires of them, and
soon they wake to the fact that they have
no following, and either stick to their
old routine through mistaken ideas until
they are classified as barnstormers and
are Qnancialy ruined, or quit in time to
profitably join with some one of tho big
New York productions. Realizing this
fact at the beginning of their career,Mur?
ray & Mack, undoubtedly 'the most suc
cessful* farce com jdy stars Ion the road,
made effort and practice of changing their
specialties. So each season they add
new specialties and discard old ones.
They also make it n rule not to pln> one
piece to its utter extinction in public
favor, and in hue with thi.-. policy this
season they have brought with them for
representation at the Academy to-night
a brand new play from the pen of George
H. Emerick, entitled, "Finnlgan's Court
ship." Mr. Emerick is the author of two
of their former successes and thoroughly
understands how to fit them. Murray
Mack are this season duplicating their
former successes and have by all (aids the
