Lincoln J. Carter's Play Poorly
Presented at the Grand.
A production of Lincoln T. 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

was poorly presented, about half of the

scenery. The sunset scene in the last
act, was excellent.

sessor of a graceful, erect carriage un

Observer. There are many noble heart

justice by the awkward way they car

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.?

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."
Every pair of spectacles is fully guaranteed to give satisfaction.
