Lanrant, the Magician.
Hermann, the Great, in his palmiest
days need not have been ashamed of a
performance, such as was witnessed at
the opera house last night by a large
and delighted audience. Laurant lias
stamped himself in the minds of the pub
lic as being a magician of the first water.
His tricks are novel, and the way things
appear and disappear at Ms will would
almost lead one to suppose that he was
in league with the "old gentleman" him
self. Of the many startling and be
wildering feats and illusions performed
last evening perhaps the ring trick was
the most intricate and puzzling, al
though the Columbian illusion pleased
the eye and delighted everyone. If some
of the so-called magicians who are now
touring the country could see this won
derful performance, the public at large
would undoubtedly be the gainers.
Laurant is justly entitled to rank with
Hermann and Keller, who are perhaps
most prominently associated in the
minds of the theatre going public as first
in the realm of magic. The sale of seats
for tonight is large and Lnurant can
rest assured that should he ever return
to this city he will be greeted by the
many admirers of his marvelous work,
lie announces a chauge of program for
this evening. It is Pafe to say that the
house will again be crowded.

Wild Wiih Eczema
Fire Could Not Havo Been More
11 After spending two years in tak
ing all kinds of medicines that were
suggested for eczema, but without
avail, my mother was induced to take
11 rs Sarsaparilla. The result was
wonderfully gratifying. Her limbs
had been terribly lacerated l>y the dis
ease, and there were times when fire
could not have been more painful.
She was, in fact, almost wild. Two
bottles of Hood's Sarsaparilla com
pletely cured her, and not a trace of
eczema was left." E. \V\ Deckxb.
Gardiner, N. Y.

great blessing to me. I was weak,
irritable, tired and nervous; had no
appetite and was always sad and des
pondent. One day 1 got hold of a
little book about Hood's Sarsaparilla.
I looked it over and resolved to try a
buttle. I was better before it was
gone, co I kept on until I had taken
live bottles. [ can now t-leep well,
feel cheerful and can do all my work,
including plain sewing, and I can
walk two or three miles a day. lam

worth living.'' Mrs. Emma Smith,
