The colored concert company which appears at Lloyd's opera house on Thursday evening of next week under the auspices of the K. P. lodge, comes very highly recom mended, as the following para graphs show: "The double quartette of colored singers sang the-old plantation melodies, which every one has heard but which nearly every one is anxious to hear acrain. The singerswere repeatedly recalled. The solo numbers were especially good the soprano being a singer .with .extraordinary powers and a sweetroice over which sheshas db solute control. She sang 'Steal away 'fo Jesus and Tqe Suwanee River.' The- audience wildly ap plauded when she had finished, and she was recalled again and again. There were twenty-five numbers besides the numerous encores, and the singers were kept before the audience for nearly two hours." The Topeka (Kans.) State Journal. 'Slay ton's Jubilee Singers rend ered a number of plantation melo dies and hymns as only negro voices can, and at once caught the hearts of theic hearers. The male quartet gave some excellent imitations of a steam calliope and of the ringing of distant bells. It was the last num ber assigned to the jubilee singers, but the people wanted more. The audience was not quieted until the songstress came out and sang a version of 'Annie Laurie.'" The Chicago Tribune. "The program was lengthy and varied, occupying over two hours with hardly a perceptible pause;but neither the audience nor the singers rrwr f?rfH nnH cm'Ti cn?rJffrl n n- plause as greeted the singers at the close of each number was certainly never heard at -the Association Hall before.

Times. "A large and appreciative audi-j ence listened to Slay ton's Jubilee Singers- last evening" at the Con gregational church. Most flatter ing reports from Chicago and other cities had put the people of Sheboy gan on the qui-vive, but they were hardly prepared for such a musical treat. The Quartet alone was worth double the price of admission and graciously responded to many encores. The company is undoubt edly the peer of anysimiliar organ ization that has ever appeared in our city, and we hope to hear them, again mtlie near future." Sheh,qy- gan (Wis.) Gazette.

One of the most valuable relics in the collection of the famous church of Ara Coeli, Rouie, is tho noted image -which has frequently been figured and de scribed in the investigative magazines under the heading of "The Oldest-Doll In the World." In Italy this valuable carving is called "II Bambino" ("The iDfaut"), and legend says that it is a fig ure of the child Jesus, carved from a tree on the Mount of Olives, the iden tical one under which Christ underwent the agony on the night before the cruci fixion. According to 'the popular belief it was. carved by a Franciscan monk or pilgrim -(accounts differ on that sooie) and painted by St. Luke. Iu Rome the figure has been greatly venerated for centuries on accouut of the power at tributed to it of miraculously healing tho sick, When cardinals and other higlrchurch dignitaries and officials are supposed to be on their deathbeds the "Bambiuo" is often taken to the sickroom, and many are the miraculous cures that have been reported. When, takenou such missions the "Bambiuo is never carried, but is taken by a prelate in a tan colored coach pver which floats the holy vermilion flag. There is a. legend that the figure was once stolen from its place in the church reliquary, but that it escaped and walked back. This supposed inci dent is made the subject of a poem by Aldrich which bears the title of "A Legend of Ara Coeli." St Louis Re public. Mackintoshes and Pneamanla. A doctor declares that mackintoshes and pneumonia are twins. Any rubber garment, whether of silk or wool on the outside, is a very warm garment, and consequently there is a constant temp tation to wear one with nothing in the way of a wrap underneath. But almost all mackintoshes are loose, with only sling sleeves'5r no sleeves at all, so that while they exclude dampness they freely admit the chilling wind just where tho body is most sensitive. A long circular cloak of serce makes a better storm cloak than the most expensive imported mackintosh and an ulster is best of all. Bicycle Saddles. Paris physicians denounce the present saddle in use on ladies' bicycles in un measured terms, claiming that with this defect remedied there would be left nothing to criticise or condemn in the exercise. The saddle is far too narrow at the back, throwing tho weight for ward most unhygienically. It is absurd, say these critics, that manufacturers do not bend their energies to ths remedy ing of this great handicap, instead of trying merely to take off weight and ndd speed to the machines. Canary Ixrreraaklnff. The leading bird fancier of this city makes a specialty of canaries. He be lieves that they can almost talk. "It's a curious thing," he said the other day, "the courtship of canaries, like human beings in a way. I have a beautiful ladybird singer, and a friend brought me a fine, stalwart gentleman bird from Germany the other day. I put the two cages together, and you should have seen the fun. "The feminine vanity and toilet mak- ingwas laughable. The young German, too, primped himself up and was in fine feather. Gradually they began to talk about the weather, I suppose and, by Jove! in less than an hour, when my back was turned, I saw them in the looking glass kissing each other. That's a fact. "The male canary always remembers his mate and can tell her whistle in a rocraful of birds. One little chap, who was in a cage with six others, nearly broke his wings to get out when he heard- the chirp of his mate, whom I had just broughtljack after a two weeks absence in the country. When canaries are hatching, the proud, prospective papa takes his turn on the eggs and feeds his mate very generously, sometimes makins 35 trips to the seedbox, and varryiug water in his bill. My salad bilT in the summer is large. Lettuce or wa tercress they need in the warm weather, and a red pepper pod is a treat It's ex cellent for their digestion. Xoung birds like rolled cracker crumbs and hard boiled eggs chopped and mixed." New York Letter in Boston Advertiser. The Latin word from which pagan is derived originally meant a fountain or spring ; then the village which sprang P around-it, and finally the residents in the village As Christianity took strong root at first in the largo centers of population and the worship of the pagan deities lingered longest ha the country and among the country villages it came to be understood that a pagai,, cr villager, was, in virtus of his resi dence, a worshiper of the old gods, azd thus the term acquired its preset sig- IE-S7"ea:37-"bcL37 -over our Great Clothing, Gents' Finishing Gloves and Mattel iSi Surprised, First afc the Large Assortment x 11 Second at the Superior Quality: " " .
