pathetic male voice in the city. Mr.
Randolph's shows excellent training,
but cannot move; it lacks thrill and
resonance. It does not warm. Mr.

him sing. His stage manner is un
pleasant. His singing, while it pleases
the ear, offends the eye. To enjoy it,
one has to look the other way. This is
a pity, especially when a little diligent
practice might remedy it.

wonder what we were laughing at, and
while we are wondering we go off again.

one dreaded disease that science has
been able to cure in all its stages and
that is catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cure is
the only positive cure now known to
the medical fraternity. Catarrh being
a constitutional disease, requires a
constitutional treatement. Hall's
Catarrh Cure is taken internally,
acting directly upon the blood and
mucous surfaces of the system, thereby
destroying the foundation of the disea

by building up the constitution and
assisting nature in doing its work.

its curative powers, that they offer
