You cannot always tell by the prices of admission tho value of a theatrical performance, and that is whero some people have been mislead as to the J. E. Toole company, now filling an engage ment at Kaior's Grand opera house. Of all the repertoire companies that come to Mahanoy City, none are more worthy of crowded houses. Last evening the piece was Henry Irving's version of "Mathias, tho Bells, or the Murder of the Polish Jew." Mr. Toole filled the roll of the burgomaster who had murder ed the Jew and became rich. After fifteen years and just as he is marrying off his only child to a man of high char actor, remorse seizes him. Ills portrayal of tho oonsciencc strlcken murderer was a splendid bit of work, which gave evidence of his high attainments as an actor. As usual tho support was good and tho stage setting and effects in good taste. Specialties of a high order are promised for this evening. flow's This I We offer One Hundred Dollarv Re ward for any case of Catarrh that can not be cured by Hall's Catarrh Cure. F. J.

THERE IS HOPE FOR ALL. Milinay Protective Association Still Work ing for Jersey Land Investors. Milinay, N. J., September 15, 1899. EDITOR TRIBUNE. —While in that part of Luzerne county, I found many who had paid only a small amount to tho South Jersey Land and Transportation Company, and had only a receipt or two and no contract. These we did not en courage to join our Protective Associa tion, as we saw but little hope for them. Wo felt that if we saved those that had been large investors, that was all we could undertake; but we now have reached a point whero wo ask all who have a con tract or receipts to send them to us at once and we will see if we can save their property, that is if they care to finish paying for it after they get it released from the mortgage. We can secure something where there is a contract or receipts. We ask no fee from tills class of claimants, until we have saved their property; then tho fee will not exceed $2, and possibly not that much. We will not promise to secure the re turn of any money already paid on iand, but we will try to secure proper credit and get a release so that all may safely complete payment, if they so desire. Lot all who desire to act send me thoir papers at onco. Also give full address so that these papers can be returned after they have boon presented to tho company to bo identified. Hoping to have a hearty response, I am, yours, J. B. Doty, Socretary, Milmay Protective Association. MINES AND RAILROADS. S. G.

Already these have grown to enormous amounts, the increase in our exportation of manufactures being es pecially great; but this volume can still bo multiplied speedily, for the superior ity of American methods of manufac turing gives us an advantage in com petition with foreigners which only needs to be better understood by the outside world to create such a demand.
