gift of healing, and that ifr wasjhis. mis

whenever called upon, ever since and
with: the most astonishing results. One
of the gentlemen with whom our
reporter conversed, has been afflicted
wfth chronic j neuralgia for ,nine years.

almost constantly ithet most ex

he had not had more than three nights

to resort to narcotics lniorder to allevi

impossible before. In his case Mr.
James rubbed his hands a number of
titoes - oves his bodv. The next dav
after the operation he felt a tired sensa

and a desire to sleep. He is not yet
entirely ijuredbut he is satisfied from
the wonderful results already attained,
that in tame a complete cure will be
effected. The other gentleman said a

in the ballet a number of times before,
and they have come to look at it very

ferred that considerable judgment jhas
to be exercised in the acceptance of
those who aspire to the costume of
tights and gauze dress, but on this point
the manager was singularly bashful
and uncommunicative It is a lament
table fact, however, that all ladies are,
notDlumD and symmetrical, and for"
those lacking these charms thereis noi
door to the ballet stage. .Even snouia
they be engaged, the keen eye of the
ballet master would single them outat
the first dress rehearsal, and nothing
could induce him to run the risk of al
lowing a " centennial fairy" to appear
before the audience. Such embarrass
ing predicaments seldom occur, though,
as a girl is generally pretty well satis
fied that she will pass inspection before
she offers her services.
The Louisiana Lotic;v.
A renewed attempt is being made ill
the Legislature of Louisiana to repeal
the charter of the Louisiana Lottery
Company, and a bill to, that "end has
passed one branch of the Generar'As-
sembly. It , is said, however, to be op
posed by a powerful lobby, which has a
great deal of money at command, and
probably knows how to put it where
it will do most good. This lottery
was chartered by one of the disreputa
ble legislatures under the Warmoth
regime, and, by extensive advertising
and the use of names of persons who
should be ashamed to see them in that
connection, has managed to attain very
large proportions and to distribute its
corrupting influences most widely
throughout the'landr. j it is truly to be
hoped that -Louisiana may be able to
shake off this incubus. Lottery gam
bling is one of the worst and most per
nicious vices 01 tne needy and ignorant ;
it becomes a sort of infatuation for
those who often indulge themselves in
it ; keeps them - and their families al
ways poor ; tempts a great many per
sons to petty pilfering and .till-tapping.
and, next to drink, is one of the most
prolific sources of misery to the human
race, it has been broken up and put
under the sternest reprobation of the
law in nearly all civilized communities,-
and in no places where essentially good
government prevails is it looked upon
as a legitimate Bourcei from which to
derive public revenue. It has been dead
