Dliyn of Lone Ago- In a review of base ball for the past twenty years A. G.

Bulkely, ex-governor -of Connecticut, was our first president and Nick Young our secretary. By the way, at the original conference meeting 'held at the Grand Central Hotel, New York, on February 2,1878, the late veteran, Harry. Wright, acted aa secretary. The delegates on that occasion, I remember, were the late Mr. Hulbert, who, with Mr. Charles A. Fowle, represented Chicago. St. Louis, Cincinnati and Louisville; Mr. N. T. Apollonia, the Bostons; the: late G. W. Thompson the Mhlctlcs of Philadelphia; Mr. Bulkely the Hartlords, and W. H. Cammeyer the Mutnals, that club then -representing Brooklyn. So it will be seen that Cincinnati and Brooklyn were both represented at the first meeting of the National League, as they were at our last meeting, twenty years afterward, and In February, too.

Since the open-air season began there have boon on an average two pleasant nights in a week. The effect of this has been most disheartening to both managers and performers. Another reason for the poor business done by the roof gardens is the fact that last summer the performances were usually of an inferior quality, and many songs and jokes wero allowed which would not be tolerated in a theater. Although an Improvement has been observed this year, the managers have had to suffer for tho reputation they gained for their previous laxncss. There is perhaps one roof garden which has not-lost money this year, another may have come out even, hut tho rest are all losers. .Variety entertainments are tiresome at beat, and when tho program is.extended over three hours the cleverest performers cannot please;- but—and this is where the important difference comes in—the cleverest performers are not seen on the roof gardens. •Joined the-company supporting Alice Dunning •Lirigar'd) 'playing sinall -ports, during a tour of New Zealand.

There is comfort in the knowledge, that so many forms of sickness arc not due to nu.y actual disease, but simply to a constipated condition of the system, which the pleasant family laxative, Syrup of Figs, promptly removes. That if. why it is the only remedy with milieus of families, andis everywhere cstccmsd so highly by all who value good health. Its beneficial effects arc due to the fact, that it is the one remedy which promotes internal cleanliness without debilitating the organs on which it acts. It is therefore all important, in order to get its beneficial effects, to note when, you pur- j chase, that you have the genuine article which is manufactured by the Call- I iornia Fig Syrup Co. only and sold by i sll raputable druggists. If in the enjoyment of good health, and the system 'is regular, laxatives or other remedies are then not needed. 11 afflicted with any actual disease, one may be commended to the most skillful physicians, but if in need of a laxative,' one should have the best, and with the well-informed everywhere, Syrup of Figs stands highest and is most largely , used and <rivesii?ost general satisfaction, i Hot Springs, Va., Via.
