Carter's "The Darkest Hour,"was presented at the Tralers Grand opera house Thurs day evening. But a fair steed audi ence was present. The play as pre sented at this performance, was a very ordinary one. The written play is possibly an excellent one, but In this company, the piece was horribly butchered by the different characters presented. ?'The great railroad scene," possess es great possibilities. However, it was poorly presented, about half of the necessary "properties" being notably absent. The company carries a lot of good scenery. The sunset scene in the last act, was excellent. The Clarksburg Fish and Oyster Market, located on Third street, next door to Squire Gordon's oillce, is no more. Master Flale Dowman, young sou cf Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Dowman is ill threatened with fever. One lone drunk was up before Mayor Crile this morning. He was assessed the usual tine. ClinrncterlNtlc Worth. The woman who curries herself well Is more apt to commaud respect than the woman who trudges along with her head inclined forward and her shoul ders In a stooping position. The pos sessor of a graceful, erect carriage un consciously impresses us as having characteristic worth, says the Pittsburg Observer. There are many noble heart ed women who really do themselves in justice by the awkward way they car ry themselves. It is very hard for oth ers to see^eauty and grace of heart In an unlovely outward appearance. It is the exterior charm of the rose that gives fitting expression to its hidden sweetness. Are Women Too ReatleaiiT The American woman is restless, dis satisfied. Society, -whether among the highest or lowest classes, has driven her toward a destiny that is not nor mal. The factories are full of old maids. The colleges are full of old maids. The ballrooms In the worldly milieux are" full of old maids. For nat ural obligations are substituted the fic titious duties of clubs, committees, meetings, organizations, professions, a thousand unwomanly occupations.? Everybody's Magazine. Mutton Fat.

GENER.AL REAL ESTATE DEALERS Office, 359 Ma.irv Street. DR. S. M. HARDMAN. OCULIST AND AURIST. Is by far the best qualified and equipped for examining the eye and fitting spectacles cf any one In the state, having had over twenty year's practical ex perience, and much practical tralnlnpr under tl"; best instructors in United States, some of whom came from England, Germany and France. The Doctor is not only a very tine refract ion 1st, but has acquired a thor ough knowledge of grinding and cutting lenses, frame fitting and adjusting and is therefore competent to" examine the eye, make up, and adjust the glasses in the most satisfactory manner. *: His stock of solid gold and void tilled spectae'e and eye glass frames and regular cut, and special ground lenses is full and complete, which enables him to make up the MAJOR I TV.of his work wUile you wait and all you pay for is the tincst and best fitting pair of glasses t hat can be made for the prloe. The following illustrations represent a few ?.r the valuable and powerful scientific instruments used by him for examining the eye for glasses and being familiar with all the latest methods of testing. ? is worth more than the cost of a pair of line spectacles to have so thorough and searching examlnatloa made as, ,4A stitch in time may save nine."
