N society af
fairs have been
busy during the
nasi, but In a
quiet sort of
way. There has
been a large
number of se
lect receptions
.and private par
ities, which are
more enjoyable
than more formal affairs. The only
public ball was that given for charity's
sake at tne West hotel Wednesday even
ing, It was one of the most notable
events of the season. Society people
■were there in full force.and many brill
iant costumes were specially designed
for the occasion. A charity ball is a
happy idea. It gives people a chance to
enjoy themselves, and at the same time
time they can reflect upon the amount
of good which will be accomplished as a
result of the net proceeds of the enter
* *
Several afternoon receptions are on
the list for the coming week. The
(molarity of these receptions is attested
y the fact that one is to be given by a
society lady who is most exclusive in
the choice "of friends who make up her
social coterie. Club dances and socials
follow each other in rapid succession.
Many of the dancing clubs hold extra
sessions for literary improvement and
general entertainment. One club has
barred gentlemen from their literary
meetings on the giound that men can't
or don't appreciate any sort of enter
tainment except a dance. How superior
our young ladies are becoming. Let it
not be hinted, even in a whisper, that
they meet to exchange gossip as well
as literary criticisms.
* *
The hairdresser is becoming every day
a greater necessity to the society girl.
Bonnets are no longer worn at re
ceptions, and consequently more at
tention must he paid to her coiffure.
Several new styles were noted at a re
ception last week. The Psyche knot,
■which has stayed so persistently with
us for the past year, is no longer popu
lar. The hat of fashion has gone forth
and it will be replaced, on ordinary oc
casions, by an arrangement of broad
flat braids "at the back in any form best
suited to the general contour of the
head. The people are all wrong who
have been harrowing up our souls by
telling us that the bang must go and
the society belle appear with her front
hair drawn back in straight bands just
as her Puritan ancestors did. The bang
is here to stay and it appears in several
guises, all equally fashionable, so that
a girl niav wear the style that suits her
face without being at all uncon
ventional. That- is. she may if she
wishes, but she won't. Nine girls out
of ten will insist on wearing her bangs
in the style which was never intended
for her face at all. But she won't
know the difference and will be cor
respondingly happy. The Cecilia
bang is worn straight or curled,
lt is quite short at the comers of
the forehead, and forms a deep point
between the eyebrows. But it shouldn't
be long enough to touch the eyebrow.
It is suited to large, broad faces, and
gives them a longer and less heavy ap
pearance. The Russian bang is similar,
only not so sharply pointed, and is eas
ily adapted to the ordinary type of face.
The Russian wave is parted in the cen
ter and composed of short. fluffy hair.
The effect is soft and pretty. As it
needs no dressing, it is sure of being
popular. For dress occasions the coif
fure is extremely high, being piled in
loops and braids on the crown of the
head, and surmounted with silk
pompons to match the dress. The
-baby bang" and the "baby stare" are
perfectly charming -on some people
but beware of them unless you know
just how to adapt them to your particu
lar style. There are many novelties in
ornaments, which will be noted next

Help for Consumptives.
How many persons know or can de
tect the approach of this dreadful dis
ease? Few, indeed; and they are only
amone the most skillful physicians or
specialists, who have patiently studied
the disease from its incipiency, giving
it the profoundest thought, and using
all the instruments and appliances that
this wonderful age has produced in the
shape of medical discoveries, one of tho
most important of which has been the
most powerful microscope, to find out
the destructive bacilli peculiar to the
pestilential scourge. Can consumption
Ik: cured? Post mortem examinations
have proved that nature alone has per
fected a cure unaided; how much more
can we expect from scientific and skill
ful treatment? A careful and positive
diagnosis in the incipient stages, or
even after tubercles have formed, with
careful, experienced and scientific
treatment from a physician who under
stands such cases, will undoubtedly give
a speedy and lasting cure. When a per
son has a tendency to Catarrh or Con
sumption—whether this tendency is
inherited or results from cold
—you will find that that per
son invariably loses llesh and
loses strength, showing that the nutri
tion is affected. In all such cases the
sufferers should at once be placed under
the care and influence of a skillful phy
sician, who will restore the defective
nutrition, and attend to invigorating
the constitution. It is to be remem
bered, that in every case the presence of
Catarrh is an evidence of predisposition
to Consumption, and no matter how
slight the attack may be, it should be
treated with the greatest care, and tlie
treatment should be continued until all
traces of the Catarrh have disappeared.
If Catarrh is allowed to reach the small
est of the bronchial tubes, which condi
tion is indicated by the raising of a yel
low mucus, then immediate attention to
the malady is demanded, or serious
lung trouble will undoubtedly result.
Many patients fall a victim to the
deeply rooted idea that neglected Ca
tarrh never leads to Consumption.
After many years of research and
practical experience. Dr. Nki.sox has
discovered a remedy that will at onco
relieve consumptive symptoms in a most
wonderful manner, and where the dis
ease is not too far advanced, effectually
remove it. The remedy is so sure and
simple that patients are invited to como
to the Doctor's office and give it a trial.
The Doctor feels assurred that the im
mediate relief they will certainly re
ceive will convince the most skeptical.
Discovered Which May Be Ben
eficial to the Reader.
In the practice of a skillful physician
there occur many cases like the case of
catarrh mentioned. In many cases' the
patients have pains about the chest and
sides, and sometimes in the back.
They feel dull and sleepy; the mouth
has a bad taste, especially in the morn
ing. A sort of sticky » slime collects
about the teeth. The appetite is poor.
There is a feeling like a heavy load on
the stomach, sometimes a faint, all-gone
sensation at the" pit of the stomach,
which food does not satisfy.
The eyes are sunken, the hands and
feet become cold and feel clammy.
Altera while a cough sets in, at first
dry. but alter a few months it is attend
ed with a greenish-colored expectora
tion. Tlje patient feel tired all t|*e
while, and sleep does not seem to afford
any rest. After a time hejbecomes nerv
ous, irritable and gloomy, and has evil
forebodings. There is a giddiness, a
sort of whirling sensation in the head
when rising up suddenly. The bowels
become costive, the skin is dry and hot
at times, the blood becomes thick, and
stagnant, the whites of the eyes become
tinged with yellow, the kidney secre
tions become scanty and high-colored,
depositing a sediment after standing.
There is frequently a spitting up of
food, sometimes with a sour taste and
sometimes with a sweetish taste; this is
frequently attended with palpitation of
the heart and asthmatic symptoms; tho
vision becomes impaired, with spots be
fore the eyes; there is a feeling of great
prostration and weakness. ..'
Dr. H. Nelson, five years resident
physician in Guy's hospital, has located

Many diseases are treated successfully
by Dr. Nelson through the mails, and it
is thus possible : for those unable to make
a journey to obtain successful hospital
treatment at their homes. Office hours,

Dr. Nelson has established the
Where Persons Can Have Home
Electric Treatment and Baths
By Experienced Attendants.
There are hundreds o' patients who
visit Dr. Nelson's offices monthly;
among the nnml er are some of the best
people in Minnesota, representing all
business, from a wholesale merchant to
the plain every day laborer.
We guarantee to deal honestly with
every person whom we treat, and to
give them the very best and most bene
ficial treatment known to the medical
We do not cure all who treat with us.
But the patient is more to blame for that
than we are. For instance, a person
comes in for examination and becins
treatment. They pay for one month,
take treatment and "medicine for a
couple of weeks, or even a month,
begin to feel better, and in many cases
do not continue to come, and thus the
neglected disease returns, and in the
course of time they are as bad, if not
worse, than before beginning treatment.
Thus they do a great injustice to them
selves, ami also tit the doctor. ..^ -„'
