Many old Foldiers now feel the effects
of the hard service they endured during
the war. Mr. Geo. S. Anderson, of Ross
ville, York county. Pa., who saw the
hardest kind of service at the front, is
now frequently troubled with rheuma
tism. 'I had a severe attack lately," he
says, "and procured a bottle of Chamber
lain's Pain Balm. It did so much good
that I would like to know what you
would charge me for one dozen bottles."
Mr. Anderson wanted it both for his
own use and to supply it to his friends
nnd neighbors, as every family should
have a bottle of i' in their home, not
only for rheumatism, but lame back,
fiprnlns, swellings, cuts, bruises and
burns, for which it is unequaled. For

"Wilton haekaye's .evr I'Inj Pro
duced ut Hie Lafayette Square.
Two premiers in a fortnight is an ex
cellent record for any house, and itb
successful achievement was marked last
night by the first production of "Char
ley O'Malley" by Wilton Lackaye and
his company at the Lafayette Square
Opera House. That the large andlence
present was well pleased Is attested by
the fact that, after receiving ten cur
tain calls from a house that had been
wltnesMnr the presentation for over
three hours, Mr. Lackaye was forced
by general acclamation to make a speech.
"Charley O'Malley'' is, as may be sup
posed from the nnme, an adaptation of
Lever's famous "Charles O'Malley,"
though it is so liberal a version that
suggestion would probably be a. better
word than dramatization. The exquisite
humor of the author has been retain
ed, both in incident and dialogue, but
an almost entirely new serious story
has been devised, and the little of the
original tale left in the firnt two acts
is dropped in the last two. The strength,
humanity, ingenuity and interest of the
play Is remarkable, and there is little
doubt that with time and studious work
the drama can be made successful.
The " vfrtife of the presentation are
paid for by its lack of compactness; its
occasional conventionality and stilted
ness, nnd its repetition of situations and
dialogue. Some of the speeches are so
long, too, that not even their wit saves
them, and a dozen other minor faults
are noticeable if not notable.
The cast is, in the main, excellent.
Wilton Lackaye is not exactly an Ideal
romantic actor, despite his voice ana
stage presence, but he manages to in
vest the title role with becoming dash
and gallantry, without making it in the
least impossible. His impersonation ot
Judy McCann U not an especially clever
performance, but its demerits are out
weighed by the excellence of hfs acting
in the third scene of the piece. Edith
Crane is little mora than an earnest and
charming Lucy, her portrayal being
marked by considerable broadness and
exaggeration. Joseph Wheelock Is a
capable and experienced player, whose
General Bl.ike is seen to advantage,
whilo his son, "Jap" Wheelock. does
very well with a smaller role. Nanette
Comstock is unequal to the part of Mrs.
Blake, and Alice Evans has lost none of
her unpleasant mannerisms, while J.
Palmer Collins overacts the role of
Dash wood, and Henry Jewett Is the
ordinary very ordinary villain. John
Stepplings leads a long list of others,
whose work is worthy of mention. The
company is generally excellent, and the
play well worth seeing.
COUNT TURIN HERE.
Italian Triiice of IJnel Fame
riven In Anicrlcn.
Xew York, May 1. Prince Victor Em
manuel, the Count of Turin, of the Royal
House of Savoy, and nephew of the King
of Italy, arrived in Xew York last night,
on the Wilhelm der Grosse. With him
was the Count Carpenatto. his cousin,
also a nephew of the ruler of Italy. The
royal visitors were met on the pier by
Baron de Fava. the Italian ambassador
at Washington, several members of the
legation, the consul general at Xew York,
G. Branchl; the vice consul, Gerolamo
Xaseltl, and other members of the con
In deference to the flag under which
the big ocean liner sails, the prince's
name appeared on the passenger list sim
ply as "Her Graf von Turin." This was
thought to be decidedly modest, inasmuch
as the prince is a gilt-edge member of
the fraternity of monarchists. His pedi
gree is decidedly interesting.
His father, Duke of Aosta, and brother
of King Humbert, was once the King of
Spain. The duke was the second son of
King Victor Emmanuel, of Italy, for
whom the prince, his grandson, is nam
ed. The prince is a brother of I.uigi,
Prince of Savoy, and Duke of the Abruz
zi, who wns recently In Xew York, on his
way to make the ascent of Mount St.
As Prince Victor Is celebrated mainly
for his duel last year with Prince Henri,
of Orleans, and for a unique affair of the
heart, it is necessary to tell that hla
brother Lulgi is Ihe husband of the Prin
cess Helene of France and that she is
first cousin to Henri of Orleans. The
two princes who fought were therefore
cousins by marriage.
Prince Victor is a bachelor. He has
none of the effeminacy that often char-,
acterizes the representatives cf nobility
and royalty seen on these shores. As he
stepped on -the. pier In Hoboken last night
and greeted the" waiting diplomatic and
consular gentlemen his unaffected man
ner and fine appearance made a good Im
pression. The prince would not say a word about
the war, and pretened not to hear when
reference was made to the downfall of
