On introducing the distin guished woman to her audi nee the dean of the university said that they had been ad dressed In the past by the greatest living CURES WITHOUT PAIN Ore of the Ilet Feature of the Xfw IMIe Cure. The Pyramid lt!t Cure cures all forma of piles without one particle of pain. This desirable point is not obtained by the use cf injurious ojriates which simply deaden and paraljze the nerve of the parts and make matters worse lu the long run. Rut It is done solely by Its remarkable healing and soothing effects. And while it thus gives Immediate rt lief, at the same time the disease is not merely checked, but a radical cure is rapidly accom pllshed. And the point we want' to make clear is that all this is done without a particle of pain. This fact is one grent reason for the popu larity of Ih Pyramid IMIe Cure and consti tutes one Tery great difference between It and almost any other kind of treatment for ji!es. livery kind of surgical oinratlon for piles lb excruciatingly painful, besides endanger ing the life of the patient, and in most cases l-i not to he ' compared with the Pyramid Cure, neither in making suctesjful cures without pain nor in cheapness and safety. The Pyramid t:Ie Cure ha t. t n befere the pubh: o long, and its merits recognized by too many people, to allow it to be classed with the many salve-, suppositories, pills. tc. and u run no risk m trjlng it, as Is Often the cse with ur.tr!d preparations.

Currie, one of Hoyt's actors who is in Florida with the playwright, has writ ten to Eeander Richardson, of the New York Telegraph, tnut Mr. Hoyt is steadily Improving and will probably be back In New York in a few weeks, strong and well again. As expected, the "CamilJe" matinee yes terday was even larger than the usual im mense audiences that grace the Grand Wednesday and Saturday afternoons. The remainder of the stock company's week In "Camille" promises to be still more largely attended than the first half. There will be another matinee Saturday. John J. Ruddy, a well-known theatrical manager, dropped dead of apoplexy near his home, in New York, on Saturday morning. His body lay at the morgue until Sunday without being identified. His face was badly bruised and there is talk of foul play. Mr. Ruddy whs last here with "The Geisha" Hoyt's earlier plays vm later was manager of "Chimmte Fadden." He had been at home in ill health for several months. Chicago is not a producing city. It long ago proved Itself incapabe of supporting first-class stock companies making original presentations of plays. And as long as it re mains a purely combination town Chicago will have, to be content with the engage ments of the traveling companies as they are booked. Now and then it may be pos sible to extend an attraction's time there for a week, as in the present case of Maud Adams. Hut the practice won't become gen eral while the biggest center In Illinois con tinues to be a purely provincial community. Zander Richardson, in New York Tele graph. The manager of the Grand Stock Company claims to have counted all the words in "Camille" and has prepared the following: "There are 2.22G words In this play. Of these Miss Shannon, as Camille, speaks 11,078 words. She is on the stage almost all tho time, there being only 1.71:5 words spoken while she is off. Of these b"'j are spoken at the opening of the first act by the Count Te Varvllle (Mr. Ktrkland). Ntchette Miss Daily) and Nanlne (Miss Berg.) Miss Shan non has thirty-four speeches of over one hundred words, twenty of over l."V words, six having over iOU. four having over 2.V) and one has ?A'l words. The speech last nftrred to is followed by one of "7 words arwl thesi two long speeches are separated by only two words. Yis. ma'am.' Thus It is practically one speech of words. The longest speech in 'Cyrano de Bergerac' Is the nose speech, words. In Camille' are KG cues and Miss Shannon as Camille delivers i'Ji of these. Miss Shannon had to learn the entire nook of the play, which is rarely ever necessary. The only other Instances in the stock com pany this season whre one of the members had to study the entire manuscript are "Tob Much Johnson" and "The benator, the. unusual work in these two cases de volving on Mr. Hansel."

A M PHI0N CLUB CONCERT. Mr. Frledliehii. the PlnnUt, Mnrie a Pronounced lilt. The concert given last evening at the Propylaeum by the Amphlon Club was a gratifying success. There was a large and brilliant audience, which gave vent to a greater demonstration of enthusiasm than has been heard at any concert since the May festival. The lion's share of the ap plause was for Mr. Arthur Friedhelm, the pianist. Chopin. Liszt and Friedhelm were the composers represented by him. As an interpreter of Liszt Mr. Friedhelm stands pre-eminent among pianists to-day. and surely he stand beside De Pachman as an exponent of the beauties of Chopin. Mr. Friedhelm jossesses a technique that is capable of easily surmounting difficulties. He has a power that is splendid and a gentleness that is tender without being .sentimental or weak. His first number of the Chopin group. "Ktude in A Flat." was so quietly begun that one not familiar with It mlsrht have thought he was only trying his lingers and the piano, so restfully were the modulations taken and the whole worked out. This was followed by two pre ludes, one In C and one in (1, wherein his skill was extended; and the last of the group was the grand "Polonaise in A Flat." This majestic composition, with its charg ing octaves for the left hand, was broad In Its conception and treatment and was played with such irresistible force that the audience was electrified, and there were shouts and such a hand-clapping that the artist returned repeatedly to the platform to bow. Finally he played another number, h. "Mazurka," by the same composer, which he gave in such an individual style that new beauties were shown. The "Paganlnl Caprice in E." by Liszt, was equisltely played and with a truly poetical sympathy, while in vivid contrast was the. next number, the "Sixth Rhapsody." also by Iiszt. In this tho pianist showed In the simple octaves, which Introduce the final theme, the most beauti ful tone quality, it seems, that ever came from a piano. Throughout his programme the octave work was a revelation, and par ticularly was this true in this Elszt num ber, tono and technique, being rarely so combined. Again the player received an ovation and. as in the first group, the encore was by the same composer, Elszt again, the "Erl-king." The representation of the different voices was wonderful the father, the child and the "Erl-kinK" dis tinctly spoke. In a single particular this number was not so satisfactory as Mme. Bloomrield-Zeisler's playing of it. The strong dramatic, tragic climax was not so skillfully wrought out. Mr. Frledheim's last selection was his own arrangement of the overture to "Tannhauser." If ever an orchestral work could be arranged for the piano this one was by far the most satis factory. At times it seemed as if tho pianist had more than ten fingers to assist him, so remarkably were the many parts sustained. The number showed his skill as a, composer In connection with a superb Iower as an interpreter. Again the audi ence continued its applause, until for a third time an extra number was played. This proved a Chopin waltz, which was still another evidence of the pianist's gift, so delightfully delicate and swinging In its rhythm and style. It was not Just to demand more than the programme's quota from Mr. Friedhelm, especially after such compositions as he offered, and it is not considered artistic to respond to recalls. The concert proved to be by Mr. Fried helm and the Amphlon Club, instead of vice versa. This club gave its second an nual concert, and this time under the direc tion of Mr. Karl Schneider. The club has vastly improved in - its additional year's work, and gave four choruses in excellent style. The slightest motion met a response that brought clear and decisive effects. The quality of tone is rich and musical, and the volume of sound was even more than the assembly hall could well accommodate. Thirty-two of the best male voices In the city have many capabilities. The first chorus. "King Olafs War Horns." with solo by Mr. Dochez, was given with fire nnd spirit, and the assistance of the brass quartet, with music arranged by Mr. Schneider, was very effective. The work is tremendously difficult, with its weird melody and constantly-changing and vary ing harmonies, but the chorus was easilv equal to it. Mr. Dochez sustained his high reputation as a baritone soloist. The next was a "Love Song." by J. Pache. in con trast to the first and equally well sung; the third was "The Army in the Desert," by Pr. Hegar; strange and pathetic, with a clash of the kettledrums to represent the. shot as "The Be'douin foe comes on." The last number was "Hymn to the Madonna." by Kremser, in which Miss Elma Igleman sang the soprano solo, accompanied by the chorus. Miss Igelman's clear, sweet voice was heard to advantage, and it rang out foove the mass of voices. Miss Cecil Smith played artistic accompaniments for the voice numbers. It was a delighted audience that complimented the musicians after the concert. The floor was cleared and a dance followed, many remaining for the social part of the evening. A large number were presented to Mr. Friedhelm. SUITS FOR POSSESSION. Hcnl-Entfite Men 31 ny Take Them to Other TotviiMhlns. It is claimed that the constables of Center township are hustling arcund among the real estate and rental agents advising them to file their suits for possession with the Justices outside the township. This, it is as serted, is one of the effects of the new law regulating the justice of the peace system in this township. Under the new law those who bring suits for possession will have to pay a higher fee than was charged under the old law. A part of this fee goes to the constable who serves the papers. It is said that the Center township constables have shrewdly guessed that the rental agents, in order to save paying the additional fee. would bring their suits in the townships that are not under the new law and the constables have been bestirring themselves among the real estate men, not only advising them to file their suits outside the township, but have usked that they 1m allowed to look after them. It was reported yesterday-that one of Center township's constables had been do ing a good deal of this soliciting in the last few days. "Of course he has." said a justice of the peace, when asked about the matter, "and as a matter of fact all the constables- in the township are doing the same thing. It is to their interests to get all the business they can. and if rental agents want to bring these suits in some other township the Cen ter township constables want to have a hand in it. That is whv thev are active among the rental agents. Otherwise the constable in the court where the suit Is brought will get the fee." It is claimed that several suits for possession have al ready been tiled by city rental agents ut Irvington and Haughville. CITY NEWS NOTES.

MADISON, Ind., March 8.-Frederick Glass, of the Madison Masonic lodge, has unearthed an old picture of General Lafay ette in the lumber room of the lodge hall. The records show it was presented to the lodge In March, 1833, by Richardson Terrell. When mounted and oiled the picture was found to bo a fine likeness of .General Eafayette, over life size, full figure. The portrait Is painted on bed-ticking, and Dr. Eggleston says it resembles, in the face and heael. the paintings of Tjafayette in the art galleries of France, and especially the por trait of Lafayette at Versailles. Dr. Eggleston states that the early artists in this country often possessed remarkable powers In painting the face and head, but had no training or knowledge otherwise. He regards this portrait as highly interest ing and valuable and thinks it was painted about the time of the general's visit to this country.

The Senate of the Texas Legislature to-day had the liveli est kind of a row over consideration of the House resolution Indorsing Congressman Bailey in his action in fighting against the seating of Gen. Joseph Wheeler In Con gress, adopted by the House on Monday. An attempt was made to kill the resolution by referring It to a committee, which was defeated by a close vote 13 to 14. A amendment was then adopted providing that the adoption of the resolution should not be construed as a reflection on Con gressman Wheeler. An amendment setting forth that the adoption of the resolution should not be considered as allying the Texas Senate to Bailey's support for United States senator two years hence was voted down by the close vote of 13 to-14. After much speech making-, during wMch seanto-a expressed themselves as being opposed to Railey-worshippins in any such marked manner, the friends of the resolution man aged to get it adopted by a hurried viva voce vote, thus endir.ff the controversy at a point where Bailey was getting the worst Of it.

FALLING AT CINCINNATI WATERS OF Till: OHIO IlKtiAN TO IlE CEDE LAST MGI1T. nenched the Maximum. 57.1 Feet, nt 1 o'clock p. m. Coul Xtnv Coming Down lllver Itlplnjt llelow. CINCINNATI, March S.The river at Cincinnati i cached its maximum at 1 o'clock this afternoon of 57.4. At 2 o'clock it began to fall, and, with slight fluctuations once or twice in reaching the maximum, it was practically stationary till 8 e'clock to-night. At & o'clock it had fallen one inch. At all points from Cincinnati to the headwaters of the Ohio the river is falling, while at points below Cincinnati it is rising. Fair and cold weather is reported from the up per Ohio and tributaries except at Warren, Pa., on the Allegheny not far from the New York line, where it is reported warm. Iletween Cincinnati and Pittsburg at varicus points twelve coal tows, aggregating about 3.3i(tt) bushels, which has been tied up on account of llood and high winds, v ere all released to-day and have startenl down the river. Navigation is resumed at all points except that boats will not start from Pittsburg to Cincinnati until Saturday. Only two towboats got out with coal from Pitts burg to-day. It is not likely that any others will get out on this rise on account of the rapid recession of the river at that point. At Charleston, W. Va.. the Kanawha has fallen very rapidly, and ioople driven from homes by the flood are returning. In the re gion of Huntington, W. Va., where there has been great suffering, the fall in the river has 'mitigated It to a considerable exunt. People oriven from homes i..ere will be able to return to-morrow or Friday. Much the same may bo said of the Eust Front-street sufferers at Portsmouth. O. At least seventy-live families are refugees from tho nood in Newport. Ky., where the flood is at its worst. jTiese people are lodged In public building. Including the courthouse, police station and In the spare rooms of benevolent citizens, as well as amor g their friends and relatives. The riv er will have to fall two and a half feet to allow them to st about the work of clean ing out their forsaken homes. In Cincinnati there has been no interrup tion to trade by the river and very little interruption to it by railroad. It Is believed that in twenty-four hours the river will have fallen from two to two and a half feet. By Friday morning, if not sooner, the Grand Central depot will be in use again.

M. Cambon, ambassador of France to Washington, called at the State Depart ment to-day in company with M. Thiebaut, who has been acting as charge of the embassy during the ambassador's absence, and paid his respects to Secretary Hay. The ambassador left Washington almost Im mediately cn the conclusion of the protocol, which formed the basis of a cessation ot active hostilities last summer, and has been in France since. Robert Williams, United States internal revenue agent In charge of the District of Greater New York, has been promoted by Secretary Gage to be deputy commissioner of internal revenue, to fill the vacancy caused by the promotion of Deputy Com missioner George M. Wilson to be commis sioner. Mr. Williams has had many years experience and is regarded as one of the most efficient men in the service. The attorney general has rendered a de cision touching the operation of .that para graph of the naval personnel act which pro vides for the compulsory retirement of offi cers in case the vacancies in the grades fall below forty in any one year. The question prestntel was whether this para graph is to be regarded as taking effect as to the current fiscal year, or whether its action would be deferred until one full year had run from the date of approval cf the act. The attorney general decides that the retirements must be made June lit next. The officers who have been pro moted and confirmed under the terms of the personnel bill are now agitated over the question of whether or not they must be examined physically and mentally before receiving their commissions. It Is probable that the examinations will be held, though, under the circumstances, they will be light and formal. Senator Jones, of Arkansas, is recovering gradually from his attack ef Monday, and to-day was resting easily and quietly. To-day's statement of the condition of the treasury shows: Available cash balance, $263,543.J58; gold reserve, $225,673,615. It has now been discovered at the Navy Department that in all probability the de partment will not be able to buy even har veyized armor for the three battle ships, Maine, Ohio and Missouri, and the four mon itors under construction. This is owing tc an error made in the last paragraph of the naval appropriation act. The word "this" was used instead of "that" in the sentence authorizing the secretary to purchase ar mor for the vessels "under the limitations as to price for the same lmposenl by this act." It happens that the armor-making companies are fo filled with contract work that they will not be free to assume ahy aildltlonal contracts before next February, to that If Congress comes promptly to the rescue of the navy at the beginning of the next session no actual delay will result In the case of these particular ships, though the vessels newly authorized will suffer. The secretary of tho treasury has received from Suporilnendent Prltchett, of the coast and geodetic survey, a strong protest against the arrest of two officials of his department at New Orleans during the Mardi Gras fes tivities in February last. It appears from Mr. rritchctfs letter that "Mr. Phelps and Mr. Frisby, aids in the coast and geodetic survey, both men of high standing and character, were arreste-d and taken to prison on the charge of being pickpockets. They were refused permission to communicate with friends and were suhjecte-d to shame ful indignities. The cell Into which they were put is said to have been vile beyond description; they were compelled to sind the niKht in company with low criminal and were subjected to kicks and blows by the guards and were treated in a most in human and outrageous manner." Hujn-rin-tendent Prltchett says that these gentleman have a right to look to the department for protection, and therefore he asks that the matter be brought to the attention of the United States district attorney at New Or leans, and that a demand be made for the dismissal of the orttoials concerned. Mr. Frisby and Mr. Phelps are on duty on the schooner Quick. Secretary Gage as yet has taken no action, but it is likely that the matter will be Investigated. Dr. Cabelle Whitehead, assaycr of the United, States mint, has been tendered and has accepted an important position in the service of the Turkish government.
