"The Charity Ball" Thursday night
at the Opera [louse was a grand sue
cess. Being the first play put upon
the new stage, the public was eager to
see it. This was manifested by the
rapidity with which reserved seats
were sold. They went like hot cakes.
The house was filled to its utmost
capacity by an appreciative audience,
who were entertained for two hours
and a half. As we are just going to
press, we cannot pass any criticism
upon the merits of the different char
acters; but we can say this much-that
"The Charity Ball" came up to any
drama ever put upon the stage in
Providence. Manager Guenard is to
be congratulated upon the successful
termination of the play, and every one
connected with' it deserves an ample
share of commendation. After the
fall of the curtain an impromptu
dance was Indulged in for the remaiu
der of the night, and ooth "Charity
Ball" and impromptu ball became
things of the past with the dawning of
day. We understand $140 were real

in them strength and consolation,
because, unlike the ocean and
the clouds, trees have- individuality.
They never change; they only develop.
The knotted apple tree you climbed in
childhood, will always be distinct from
all other apple tred the old oak under
which you played will never be to you
like any other oak'. You remember it
separate and well defined. Its over
shadowing limbs, its great thick trunk,
its gnarled roots, forming all sorts of
queer looking letters. The charm of
trees is, you can know them, re
joice with them in the spring time
when their leaves are fresh and
vigorous and the wild vines fes
toon them; then in the winter, when
their glory has passed hke a dream,
you ean love them still, and know that
they too can hope for a resurrection.
In criteising his own Raven, Edgar
Poe says at first he thought having toe
scholar meet the raven in the woods,
and there recall his life; but, knowing
that "a poem needs a frame as well as
a picture," he decided to make a
student's room the scene of action.
Some think this essay of Poe's is a
farce, one written to make fun of the
critics. However, there is in it such
acuteness of thought that. we for our
part, take it seriously, and are willing
to be fooled.
The Raven has always been con
sidered a bird ofill omen; In this poem
it represents remorse. "Never-nmore"
the past, with its crimes, will always
remain; no waters of Lethe, of forget
fulnes, will flow over the soul and
give it peace.
When r. ading the poem one feels
oppressed as if the narrow walls of the
students' room, and the narrow walls
of his life were crushing the heart and
the soul. This is artistict, and shows
Poe's judgement. Had he described a
soene with its great trees and
broad expanse of heaven the Raven,
himself, wouldhave been unimportant.
One would have lost sight of him in
the vastness of his surroundings; and
as one would have lost sight of the
bird, so would Remore become less
intense and would almostcease to ex.
ists in those surroundings.
This is the great solace of the woods.
They broaden our minds, make us feel
the ,"heart-ache and the thousand natu
ral pangs that flesh is heir to," will not
last forever. Some day they will be
gone, and the storm clouds have rolled
over the forest trees, and, yet have left
them standing, proud and fair; so the
sorrows, yes, and the crimes, will roll
from our souls, and the souls wil astill
stand pure and radiant.

There is no danger from this disease
when Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is
freely given. It liquefies the tough
mucus and aids its expectoration. It
also lessens the severity and frequency
of paroxysms of coughing, and insures
a speedy recovery. There is not the
least danger in giving the remedy to
children or babies, as it contaiks no
