The regular season of Alhtuh's
Orand Opera-House will open Moml.iy
evening with Cleorge Wilson's Mam
moth Minstrels, who will play an en
gagement of three nights and one
matinee. The company comes highly
praised, and all pronounce this season's
tnteitalmtient superior to all. Mr. Wil
son has a hoet of friends here, as this is
his old home, ami is sure of a most
cordial reception. Those who attended
his performances last spring are sure to
give htm a heartv welcome.
The first part Is excellen'Jy arranged.
Comic ditties and Inllads are Inter
spersed with new jokee. It Is difficult
for Wilson to Improve on himself, and
all he cm do season after season Is to give
us variations in costume and please us
with that peculiar humor which distin
guishes him from all other comedians
In mlottrelsy and which seems Inex
haustible. The company surrounding him con
tains several of the old favorites, and as
a whole Is much stronger than those
supporting him the past few seasons.
Illockson and Hums, eccentric dancers,
are exceptionally clever in their line
of business. Tbe dancing sketch awl
tableau "Swinging in the Grape Vine
Swing" Is a pretty conceit.
Cleveland' Cuu.ollddteil Ulmtret.
Cleveland's Consolidated Minstrels,
containing the best artists in tbe busi
ness, will begin a three Bights' engage
ment at Lincoln Music Hall nest Thurs
day night. This company has earned a
world-wide reputation as the greatest
exponent of minstrelsy ever organised,
and this season It (a greater than ever.
The stars of the profession are among
lie members, and Include such well
known names as Hilly Emerson, Hughey
Dougherty, Harney Pagan, Luke
Schoolcraft, and Gilffln and Marks,
while tbe other artists are equally cele
brated in tbeir profession. Tbe troupe
also includes the marvelous Uraggs, tbe
eight gentlemen acrobats, which Is the
feature of the enter talauent. They
will receive $50,000 for a fifty weeks'
tour with Mr. Cleveland's great eoav
paay. The family consists of eight
members, and their acrobatic display U
something phenomenal. They are at
tired hi ordinary evening dress, and
aoeae of their feats, such ae a triple
somersault over the heads of sevea
pec pie), if a wonderful feat, whlk the
six high backward-falling column ap

that at some time a city may rite there,
and if, after paying for our experience,

It Is a fact, however, that where a
not fully developed region has a fertile
soil, or where minerals are fottml In

rRosmniTY must comb.
And if such a region Is salubrloui, It

There prevails an Idea In Washington
that the soil of Virginia has lost Its

Idea Is, so far as tbe Shenandoah Valley

a high price, not one-third of what It

WANAMAKER'S MUNIFICENT GIFT TO
SIX LITTLE INDIANS,
Whlrh Wfta Hot Arcrpttil fir llentnnn
HtBtcil llclow A .InnrnnllKt unit the
"Mm Abont Trmx" In Xt York Stanr
ttrttof). A characlerlsttc story of the Postmaster-General
was told by a Washing
ton man yesterday. It concerns a lead
ing New York journalist, who has made
himself at least as famous with his pen
as has Mr. Wanamaker with his bargain
counter. The journalist has a daughter,
pretty, accomplished, and with some
thing of her father's brains and force of
character. A year or two ago she con
ceived It to be her mission In life to go
among the Indians of the West and help
civilize and Christianize them, and,
notwithstanding the natural opposition
of parents and friends, she established a
mission In the far North (vest, and Is
still engaged In her work. Tim jour
nalist was In Washington last week, and
chanced to he Introduced to the Post-masler-Gcnernl,
who expressed his
pleasure at meeting n man so distin
guished nnd with whose name he had
so long been acquainted. Then he satd :
"I believe that your daughter Is an
Indian missionary, Mr. Blank?"
"jjiieis engaged in lunt work," was
"Ah was It necessary that she
should, nh take that step?" said Mr.
"Sir! " said the journalist.
"Why, I mean, ah were there finan
cial reasons which made It necessary
for the young lady to go unprotected
and alone among the Indiana "
"My daughter la neither alone nor
unnrottcteU, sir. anil" Here the
rather hasty answer was Interrupted
by Mr. Wanamaktr. who clasned his
hand and said; "Oh, my dear Mr.
Blank, you misunderstand me. I meant
tossy that If I could be of any assist
ance I should like to do something to
help her along."
"So far as she Is concerned, sir, she
needs no assistance, but the mission
with which she is connected Is kept up
by contributions, and I suppose Is glad
to got what It can."
1 hen they parted and the Journalist
camo back to Now York without any
great, big Idea of Mr. Wanamaker s
tact and powers of perception, to say
the least. A few days lutur hu received
a letter from tbe Philadelphia bargain
counter, which read:
Our Mr. Wanamaker In Washington de
sires us to forward one-half Uomu straw
bats to tbe Indian Mission, of
which your daughter Is the bead. If you
will send us ber address we will comply at
once, t'resumleg that It will make no dif
ference la ber whether tbe goods are sent
by slow or fast freight, we shall eboote tbe
The donation was too much. The
journalist couldn't stand it, and the let
ter was promptly returned, with this
written across the back:
Itespee. John Wanamaker: Keep your
ball-dozen straw bats. You may nsed
tit (sin for your Sunday school, Tbe Indians
don't want 'em. Yours warmly,
In all probability there are six little
Indians who will not be clothed with
Wanamaker hats this summer.
Arretted for rorcery,
Itobert II. Smith, who refused to tes
tify before the Commissioners In the
Guy ease, was arrested last evening on
a warrant sworn out by Olftcor P. L.
Allen of the First precinct. The charge
made against Smith is that of forging
the name of Alien to a note for 1 10,
which he bad cashed at Mayee's bank
on January 0. ISM. Smith says ia his
own behalf that he obtained the $10
from Allen and owee it to him yet, but
that Allen indorsed the note himself.
He attributes tbe arrest to malice oa
Tbe note has been taken up aad the

l a Thought.
It is safe to assert that
there isn't a day passes but
hundreds ol dollars, to say
the leasts are expended in
this city for furniture and
house decorations. If not
expended judiciously, then
poorly spent, and if not
disbursed in the light of all
possible economy then not
expended judiciously. The
papers contain daily coun
sel of the best prudence,
and this house is among the
rest in "saving suggestions."
But it takes much and fre
quent argument to influence
some minds and often the
most lorclble kind of logic.
Yet sometimes a gentle hint
will kindle productive re
flection, and that is the hint
we here aim to impart.
Worth a thought ? Yes,
It is worth a long, large
thought that whether you
are buying strictly season
able goods, such as Baby
Water Coolers, Bed Cano
pies, Lace Curtains, Gauze
Hangings, &c, or whether
you would be induced to
invest in Furniture, Car
pets, Rugs, Tapestries, Por
tieres and so forth and so
on, provided there were
ample considerations of
prices. We wish to stamp
Indelibly upon your mind
the iact that as ample as is
our spacious store we are
are equally ready to extend
to the wise and far-seeing
investor of cash considera
tions oi price just as ample
All this means that we
are selling goods very cheap,
Isn't this worth a thought ?
