Miss Ellsabetii Wilson Is Taking Part In the Historic Pageant Going on at Bath, England. Bath, Eng., July 22.?A dosen charming young American women are taking attractive part in the histori? cal pageant being held here this week. The tableau which is most applauded Is that in which the Amer? icans appear. Each day at the close of the pa? geant, which reproduces events in the history of this ancient city, "Lady Bathe" enters, accompanied by a sword bearer and pages, robed in cloth of gold, and takes, position on the steps of a temple. Then appear the twelve young wo? men from the United States, each rep? resenting a city or town named Bath and the State in which it is situated. They are: From Iii lion is, Miss Sission; Ken? tucky, Mils X. C. Dubois; Michigan. Mlas Fred.i Harte; Missouri, Miss L. Dubois; New Hampshire.

There Is only one way to cure deaf? ness, and that Is by constitutional remedies. Deafness Is caused by an inflamed condition of the mucous lin? ing of the Eustachlan Tube. When this tube is inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it Is entirely closed, Deaf? ness is the result, und unless the in? flammation can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will be destroyed forever; nine cases out of ten are caused by Catarrh, which Is nothing but an in? flamed condtlon of the mucous sui faces.

Tfet Rind You Han Always Bought Bears Lhe Blgaatuie of NAPLES. By c. c. Brown. The following communication of historic interest, from Dr. C. C. Brown, who is now in Europe, will he read with interest in connection with his recent letter to this paper from Switzerland, and which was written just after this one here was printed. The Item is indebted to the Baptist Courier for this clipping. It cannot be denied that Baldeker'a Guide Books are highly valuable, full of information, and almost indispen sable to the tourist; but ?e and his collaborators are all Germans, with a strong leaning towards a sort of de? structive critcism. Over many places and things of interest, whose historic genuineness cannot be disproved. Baldeker casts a suspicion of doubt, simply because the facts about the place or thing cannot be proven to a demonstration. Stoddard In his lec? tures and Burton Holmes in his Trav? elogues are not so sceptical, and dayJ by day I rejoice over the fact that I have read and made copious notes from these books. Yesterday, after leaving Posillppo. we drove on to Pozzuoli. If the apos? tle Paul had not gone there, 2000 years ago, it might never have occur? red to me to go there yesterday. The town of 15,?00 Inhabitants is situated on the northern and eastern point of the land at the mouth of the Bay of Naples, and it is eight miles away. Out in the sea, east or a little south? east from Pozzuoli, lie three islands? Ischia, the largest, is a small moun? tain, rising precipitously from the Mediterranean; next is Proclda, and I then Mlseno. A little southwest of I Posilippo lies a small, rocky island I known now as Nisida. The son of J Lucullus owned a villa here, and here I Brutus fled, in B. C. 44, after he had j killed Caesar. Here also Cicero vislt I ed him, and here he took leave of his I wife Portia on his departure for I Greece. Shakespeare has outlined this pathetic parting, and I refer my j readers to that gentleman for further I instruction. But Pozzuoli?that is the place 1 I am now seeking. Luke says, in de I scribing Paul's journey to Rome. "On J the second day. we came to Puteoli, I where we found brethren, and were J intreated to tarry with them seven J days, and so we came to Rome." Con I ceiving of the Bay of Naples as a horse-shoe In shape, Pozzuoli is the northern or upper point. In Paul' j day, It was the most important com I mtroial city in Italy, and the prin? cipal depot of traffic with Egypt and the East. At present, it Is a town of about 15,000 inhabitants. Just be I yond the suburbs is the crater of th? I half-extinct valcano of Solfatara. I from numerous Assures in which va I pors and gases still ascend. Puteoli I Juts out into the bay, and there is a J small quay on each side, offering pro I tection to ships; so that one who walks along the edge of the bay could j not be far from the place of the apos I tie's landing. Just ahead of him, on I an elevation of rock, he saw the great j amphi-theatre for Roman games. In I its ruins today, It is magnificent and inspiring. It is 472 feet long by 384 j feet wide, while the arena proper If 236 by 138 feet. It provided seats for I 30.000 spectators. We walked through I the subterranean passages and chain - J hers, the prisons where captives were j held until sent into the arena to light I and die, the dens where wild beasts I were kept, which opened into the are I na above. A water oonduit is still I seen, by means of which the whole 1 of the arena could be flooded, when I naval combats were to be presented. I During the reign of Diocletian, many j Christians were here thrown to the wild beasts, and torn limb from limb "to make a Roman holiday." The I large cell or jail in which they were I kept until called out to meet death in J its most horrible form, is marked by ? large marble tablet. Many tradi I tions concerning the martyrdom of I Christians centre about this place, such as that we find about Januarius, whom the lions refused to tear, and j it was found necessary to kill him j with clubs. i Not far away from the amphithe I atre. Paul must have looked upon the temple of Serapls. This filled a square court of one-third of an acre. I The court is still surrounded by tho I remains of 48 massive granite col I umns. The portico rested on six Cor I lnthlan columns, three of which still remain. All of these columns are j worm-eaten, showing that at some time In the past the whole plot of land has been below the sea. One ex? planation I* that the Solfatara volcano erupted about a thousand years ago, and the land sunk below the sea lev? el; another Is that the low place of j the temple was once filled with sea water and used as a fish tank. At any rate, the worm holes In the col I umns are there. j The fact that Paul landed nt Pu? teoli is still a blessing to the inhabi? tants. Thousands of tourists visit the place annually, and each one of them pays a franc at the amphitheatre, or lunches at a restaurant or sleeps in a hotel. If Paul had never landed there the town would have no special his? toric Interest. Every one who visits Naples feels called upon to ride around the bay _?.??MumillMllIHIll KIIIIIIIIIII' Hot Weather Clothes. Men's Pure Linen Two-piece Suits $5.00.

I am sure I could rive no adequate idea of the delight? ful excursion. The road leads by the sea, now on a, level with it, now a hundred feet above, beside lovely vil? las, the homes of the wealthy, through olive groves and orange groves, the trees now laden with gold- I en fruit, and finally brings one to Sor- | t rento, a beautiful town of five or six thousand inhabitants, where we lunched on a terrace a hundred feet above and overlooking the waters of the bay. J But Pompeii?what can one say that has not been said a thousand times9 It was destroyed in A. D. 79, Aug. 24th T he excavations, I guess, ex? tend now about 1,000 yards in one direction by 800 in another. The city was a mile and a half by two miles. The remaining portions are being slow? ly excavated. A little tramway, with ^mall cars and a two foot track, car? ries away the ashes. There are no indications, as far as I could see, that the city was ever burned by fire. It lies as far from Vesuvius on one side as Naples seems to lie on the other. The cone of Vesuvius, which we as? cended, and from which the smok? is still rising, is a sister cone to the me which destroyed the cities. As said above, Pompeii was not destroy? ed by fire. The lava dust, blown by currents of wind seVeral miles through the air, deluged the city. The impression made upon me is that the houses were thus covered about as high as the first story; the upper portions were not covered, but the city was deserted, and the upper parts of the houses wasted away. I say this because all the houses?or a large number of them?seem to have been preserved up to the second story, and all above that is gone. If I am fly? ing in the face of history and the facts, I beg pardon. I am only writ? ing of the thing as it impressed me. The widest streets are about 25 feet, but 12 feet is the rule. The Pom peiians seemed to live on good terms with each other as neighbors, as the houses are all contiguous, the east wall of one house serving as the west wall of another. I entered the former home of my old friend. Sallust, and from that got my best idea of an an? cient Roman dwelling-place. The pic? tures are cut on the wall?the dif? ferent rooms?that is, the dining room, bed rooms, servant's rooms ami kitchen (with brick oven) are all easily distinguished. The eompluouni and the imploium?that is, the place for the rain water to come in through the roof and be caught and collected In the yard below?arc all In there. The mosaic tloor. made of bits of stone or minerals a quarter of an inch square, was wonderful to look at. The floors remained in perfect order as long as they were covered by the lava dust; but exposed to air, they are .

At the corn- j ers of a number of streets are water fountains, whose stone curbs are worn by the hands of time who came to them for water. Xow and then step? ping stones across the streets are found, and the rough paving stones show the ruts in which vehicles once ran. I am inclined, however, to be? lieve that only hand carts were used, as the stepping stones are so high and wide that horses could not well get over them. The stores of the wine merchants abound, each having a marble counter with 10 or 20 gallon terra cotta jars inserted. So too th? store of the man who dyed cloths; each has its great caldrons set over and into brick furnaces for boiling the articles to be dyed. But why con? tinue this snsipid narrative? Let one conceive of a town of brick and stones houses, with narrow streets the whole broken off at the first story, and he will have a general idea of Pompeii as it now stands, if ho W*ll allow to almost each hOUS* an open court in the centre surrounded by stone or stucco columns. The pert of the house on the street was for business, and the rest for residence. The rooms on the street were rented ( ut. It was customary to rent one I part of the house to merchants or oth I ers. and to live in the other part. This rule still prevails. 1 am writing this letter in a house, two stories of which are rented f<?r boarding hous?s while anotner story is occupied by the j family of an Italian prince who own-s the property. I ah the treasures found at Pompeii are stored in the museum at Naples. To see the ruined city gives one but half an Idea; to see the collection in the museum gives the other half Pots, beds, pans, water vessels, statu? ary, loaves of bread, egg shells, pic? tures from the walls, and a thousand articles which tell of their manner of life and customs are carefully stor? ed at the _:reat museum. I hope all the readers of this letter will come to see this museum; then they will see why I do not write more fuPy and give a better idea of things. 9 TRUTH TRIUMPHS.

My family pftysician treated me without giving me any re? lief from the awful pains in my back and I then tried every known remedy on the market but still failed to be benefited. I at last read a testimo? nial regarding Doan's Kidney Pill? and was so much impressed that I procured a box of this remedy at China's drug store. After taking the contents I was restored to good health and for that reason heartily recommend Doan's Kidney Pills." I For sale by all dealers. Price 60 cents.
