The "Brotherhood."' gave a bail
last night in the Opera houso that was
largely attended by our b.st citizans.
There were so many on the floor that
there was barely room to dance. A large
number of ladies and gentlemea wore
seated in the gallery and balcony view
ing the enlivening scene below, where
laughter and jollity reigned suprams.
The mm appeared in their working suits
of overalls, jackets and taps, while their
wives, daughters, si.ters or sweethearts
wore very pretty costumes of blui skirts
'and blue-checked jackets trimmed and
fash'uned in a very ntat and novol
manner. Natural flowers, tastefully ar
ranged, added to their fascinating ay.
psarance. The occasion will long bj
remembered by tin happy participants'
as one of dignified, vet unrestrained
"Ton Cents a Package."
That's what it coats for a package of
cigircttee with a portrait of -an actress
in mosj ilto-curtain costume, and not
much of that.
Columns have been printed concerning
their manufacture and thrir injurious
properties, yet still their sale is increasing,
so therefore we do not intend to ijforal
izu on the matter, but shall be well
pleased if we can only " snatch one
brand from the burning.'

It is tho youngsters we are after. The
puny, pain-faced boy who .is apoing tho
mn. There are also intelligent men
who have acquired the habit in their
young days and would like to quit.
Well, quit !
We were conversing with a business
man of this city on the subject a short
time ago aud he said: "I smoked
cigarettes for eleven years. Thoy used
to seem to hava a soft, soothing influence.
When I'd get up of a morning the first
tiling i wauted was to smoke a cigarette,
then I would keep on smoking them all
day. Just before I quit smoking them
I bagan to realize that I could not collect
mv thoughts on business matters and al
ways ft;lt sluggish and indifferent to
business matters. I felt that if I jdid'nt
hooa quit I should go crazy. I tried two
or three times to quit that is, I thought
I tried but after two or threo days I
would be saiokiug them again. I then
commenced to reason with myself ; and
I thought, now you have made a pre
tense of quiting, but you have not. Be
a man. Have som" control over your
self and quit. I did, although it was a
hard struggle, and I have never smoked
a oizarette since, and I never will again.
You might just as well smoke opi"m."
A cigarette is an elongated liluyia f
narcotic stupidity, and stamps the youth
smoker as-a conceited fop, and an elder
ly person as a premeditated chump of the
first water for setting a bad example to
those younger than hinis.?lf.
If a boy or youth persists in this per
nicious habit and don't die young, in
liu? course of a few yenrs lie is very
liable to have tha same complaint sis the
fell-jw who -had been sniffing snutf for a
:ni:nb.'i- of years. Hi constantly coin
;)!aiued of a pain in his h;a.l. The
;)!iy'ci.ms were puzzled but could offer
.to relief When he would "walk the
ttr.-cts his head was never erect. Some
times it would loll on one side, then
on the other. Again his head would be
hrown right back or else forward as
though he was in a eleep atudy. He
went to a phrenologist who said he. had
a bump beyond his comprehension. He
died. A post-mortem was h?ld, the
brain-pan opened, and it was discover
ed that the enormous amount of snuff he
had taken had coagulated the braiu in
such a manner that it resembled a base
ball and was in the habit of rolling
around the interior of his cranium mak
ing him very absent-minded. "
The only use for a cigarette smoker
after his death is to have hia body em
balmed, painted and decorated, then to
be stuck outside of a cigar store as a
sign, one arm outstretched holding a
package of cigarettes In the hand, and a
placard fastened to his shirt front on
which should be inscribed " Fools laugh
at their own folly.''

on our door-latch, and bounces into the
office like a Queen of the Mist in some

gleaming headlights into our line of

an irregular row of colored pinno flats,

This waist is designed to meet the requirements of ladies who
cannot, comfortably, wear a still and igid coraet, while it can LeM orn
with as much comfort as an ordinary dress waist. It will give the
fame elegance of contour as the heaviest boned corset in the market,
while the stays are so arranged that they will give support to the back
and spine and in nowise interfere with the freedom and comfort
of the wearer. The weight of the clothing is tramferred from tho
hips to the shoulders by means of the shoulder-straps, which are ad
justable to suit any form or length of waist.
