'"'.;"; HON. THOMASGlLVORD. Hon. Thomas G. Alvord, ex-Speaker Of the New York Assembly, ex-Lleir tenant-Governor, First Vice-president Ot Constitutional Convention and a • mber of the former Constitutional aventlon, la a man universally known and respected. Although ex. Governor Alvord is nearly ninety years of ago, he Id etlli bale and hearty and, SB was tested in the Constitutional Convention la°t summer, in as perfect mental condition as Is that grand old man, Mr. Gladstone. '•'Do you never feel tired and literally woin out, Governor?" was recently asked him. "At times the fever seemed to eatab- lleb itself and then all the symptoms of» general reaction would come on. I suffered from general weakness, and »n effort to move my limbs or body was attended with a feeling of weariness and exhaustion. In fact, my whole organism seemed to be giving out. I was unable to obtain relief except by lying (latuponmy back, and even this relief was only temporary." "But how conies it that you are now In such gocd heaUh?' ••Listen, and I will tell you. I determined to take my case Into my own haads, "Several years ago for the first time In my life I dla fool in that condition. I was ihon u member of the Assembly at Albany. It took the form of most disagreeable nausea, and, of course, prostr»tion which such attacks occasion. By sheer force of will power I seemed to overcome the iirat attack, but the year following it again came on with oven more violence than before." ••What were your symptoms, Gov. ernor?" "I felt a sense of weight and fullness In the lower part of the body, followed by a dull throbbing pain and aecora. panled with u sensation of feverish heat or a chilly shudder," "You must have suffered considerable. But was that al:?" and therefore began using a remedy of which I had heard a groat deal. It benefited me at onco, and C continued its use until I am completely restored to health, and kept in good physical condition, and all through the use of Warner's Safe Cure " . "Your experience, Governor, is certainly a mo'tt important and valuable one." "Yes Indeed, and I am satisfied that for physical ailments, and especially those incident to declinlngyears, there is nothing equal to Warner's Safe Cure, and certainly I am a good living example of what It can do." All who know Governor Alvord need not be told that his statements are reliable and his experience valuable. As such they are given herewith for the benefit of UIOBO mon or women who mav bo suffering-and who desire health and long life.

The cxc- .'cutioner at Brussels still holds his place. The duties of the public executioner in Belgium are singular, but not arduous. The courts still continue to scn- ' tencc malefactors to death, but tho . gnillotiue has been replaood by a scaffold, on which is posted a copy of the sentence. Much ceremony is observed in nlUx'mfr this clocniaont. A troop oJ gendarmes, with their imposing hcl- metsplumcd with horschair.is drawn up about tho place of execution, which they gravely guard with sabers drawn, while the red-robed executioner mounts tho 1 steps, 'nails up the decree of tho court, and after a moment takes it down apT'ii". But the condemned man mipht more mercifully have perished by the ax or rope. Ho Is placed in a dungeon so constructed, that from tho moment ho enters it he will never hear the sound of human voice nor see ft living being. His food is passed in through a sliding panel in tho door of his cell. Jsot one of these prisoners has boon able to survive this confinement more than three years. The authorities have striven in vain to prolong their lives by ; varying- their food as much as possible, but those who are moderately or lightly nourished gradually waste avray, "rhile those who are generously fed go lad and die raving maniacs. — I Output of Novel*.

MASSAGE FOR BLACK EYES. Hottor Tlinn Paint :i"'l Uoufstcuk for Ob- lUnnilliiS Evidence of 1'lstio Kncouutor. Those \vho make a business of obliterating evidence of fistiu encounters in the shape of blade oyos by painting the damaged optics no loujjev enjoy u monopoly of such business. This I was told by a pugilistic acquaintance whose experience entitles him to bo regarded .is an authority ou the subject, says a writer in the N«w York Herald. _ "MassaffO treatment of the region affected," ho said, "will beat paint .and raw beefsteak all liollow. T.ut it should b'c applied immediately after the injury is 'received in order to prove thcroufrhly efficacious. It docs not require aii expert to do it. All that is necessary is to move the lingers rapidly and firmly over the bruised surface, and to keep it up until the last vestige of discoloration has disappeared. The explanation is easy. Where the blow has been received tho blood becomes congested. It is tho clots of blood showing through the transparent skin that produces the black e.fl'ect. The pressure o'f the fingers gradually looscns the clotted blood, which passes off into the general current of circulation, and fresh and properly colored blood takes its place." However, as a rule, the professional "pug" does not bother himself about accelerating the disappearance of a black eye. It is a sign which proclaims the fact that its proprietor has recently filled an engagement, and as such he is an object of envy to his less fortunate brethren. It is the man about town, whose overindulgence occasionally causes him to forget that discretion is the better part of valor, who is apt to profit most by the knowledge that massage, promptly applied, will remove the signs of .mourning from an eye tb.at.bas bee.i'in violent contact with some other fellow's fist, and thus obviate the necessity of inventing a story to account for it, which, however ingenious, will be sneered at by skeptical and incredulous acquaintances, some of whom may nave "been there themselves," The first real estate entry of reeord in Kanawha county, W.

In orUt-v t-o Klvo New York a taste of her qualities Mme. de Castelvecchio announces a special performance at Daly's for her ov.'n benefit. The Comtesse de Castelvecchio comes of an eminent Corslcan family. She was born in Paris and married into a noble Italian house. When, four years ago, the countess found lic-rsclf a widow In London with three children and the necessity of making her own \vuy in the world, she determined to adopt a career for which her education, attainments and personal grace peculiarly lilted lie.-. The first venture of the countess was lectures on art in English, French, German and Italian, delivered at the studio ot Lady Alfred JefCerson, An appearance in a chanty t'lc'itrical brought tho energetic lady such jlatter- ins notices that she forthwith adopted the stage. She studied hard to subdue her foreign accent, with such success that she won the consideration of Ellen Terry, through whose Influence Mme. de Castelvecchio was engaged for two years as a member of Henry Irving's Lyceum Theater company. Her principal performance was Patience in "Henry VIII." during the long Illness of Mrs. Pauncefort. Special • matinees and' other performances brought "Miss Oldcastle" into prominence in London. Subsequently she joined Daly's company in that city. Last September the countess came to America and was as- Signed to understudy Mrs. Gilbert's roles while the Daly Company was on the road. She was cast for an Important part in "The Queen ot 1 the Air," which Daly decided not to do, and has boon asslgnccl to a. role in the new comedy to lie produced later in the season. The Comtesse de Castelvecchio will appear in "Petticoat Perfidy," a one- act comedy by Sir Charles Young, and will also display her versatility in "Comedy and Tragedy." in which Ellen Terry and others have been seen. She will also recite in costume, with musical accompaniment, an anonymous poem called "Perdita," which the countess discovered in the British museum. Baron Fava, the Italian minister at Washington, has promised to attend. Mme, do Castelvecchio is tail and oi DEMPSEY'S MIND IMPAIRED. Groat ex-Champion Mtddlewelclit Pngl- ll«t, la, a Bud TVay. Ever since Jack Dempsey fought Tommy Ryan at the Seaside Athletic club he has been acting strangely,and at times his actions indicated that his mind was unbalanced. He kept brooding over the humiliation he had sufl'er- ed at the hands of the welterweight champion, arid on several occasions threatened to Jcill himself. Monday night at a Coney Island road house, he became violent and had it not boon for the interference of friends might have ended his existence then and there. As it was, he stabbed himself several times In the wrist with table forks. Dr. John E. Ward pronounced Dempsey insane, and advised his removal to an asylum. Dempsey has never been himself since Hob Filzsimmons punished him so badly in tlicir battle bet'ure the Olympic chub of Xew Orleans, a. few years ago. BICYCLE FOR TWO.

Xo\v that a bicycle has really been built for two, there seems to be no reason why this style should not become as popular as the mythical machine which millions have Heard sung ahoui. A Now York concern has produced a novelty in cycle manufacturing of which they are justly proud, it is called BICYCLE BUrr.T FOR TWO. the Dupliex. and carries two persons, being so built as to be suitable for either sex. The novelty Is a three-wheel affair, says the New York Times, weighing forty-two pounds without the tires and : forty-seven with. It has handle bars I for each rider, and either can attend to the steering. The machine is shown at the big cycle show at Madison Square Garden. It Is claimed for the Dupleix that bal; anclng and pedal motion can be ac' quired quicker on this machine than in any other way. It Is not necessary for both riders to be experienced. One who has never previously pedaled can operate the machine with one familiar with j it. Large tires are used, and a g-ood ' rate of speed is claimed for it. | The Dupleix is llnished In a very j handsome manner and many orders ; have already been recorded despite the I fact that the machine is yet very young in trade history.

Even if it becomes a law it would not be enforced. There Is at present a law upon the statute books prohibiting Sunday ball, but the authorities have too much grood sense to endeavor to enforce it.
