It Didn’t Work,—While the Masons were here last week one of our enterprising dry goods dealers on Middle street advertised the best Merrimack print at five cents per yard. As one of the visiting Masons, (from Lubec we be lieve), was wandering up the street his eye fell on the sign in the window. He entered and asked if he could have any quantity at that price and was told he could. Seeing a bargain be selected quite a bill and told the clerk he would call and settle for them in a few hours. When the Lubec man returned the proprietor of the store told him the sign applied only to small purchasers and that he could not have the goods. This riled our Eastern friend and he departed but returned with an officer and demanded the goods. The merchant saivit was no use and delivered them but he says he doesn’t want anything more to do with out of town Masons. An Unpleasant Kencontre.—He was a tinman; he was named atter a Hebrew patri arch, and be did business on one of our prin cipal streets. Last evening he invited a woman friend into his shop to look at a gas stove* While the two were inspecting it his wife happened along. She was of a jealous disposi tion. There was a tussle the wild winds car ried away borne hair, and the two separated She ran down the street and his wife led him home by the car and that is all there was about it. The Late Henry A.

The Opening Day—The Procession and = Mass Meetings—Stirring Speeches from Earnest Men from all Parts of the State —Two very Successful Meetings at City 11 Hall—The Reformers Wide Awake, After the unpleasant weather of the past few days the clouds cleared away and the sun - broke forth just in time to cheer the hearts of the reformed men who had gathered here to hold a grand temperance rally with the Port land Reform Club. Owing to the unpleasant weather many clubs from adjoining towns were not present and did not take part in the procession as was expected; but they will be in attendance at the meetings to-day. An hour before the time for the procession to start there was quite a crowd in and about he rooms of the club in Printers Exchange on Ex change street. At 2 o’clock the procession formed in the following order. C. B. Howard, Chief Marshal. S. E. Pearson, Assistant Marshal. Chandler’s Band—22 pieces. Portland Reform Out)—45 men. First Carriage—Messrs. Bryant and Rideout of the Lewiston Club, and their wives. Second Carriage—J. W. Welsh. Sebago Lake Club; President Cobb, Gorham Club, G. E. Kimball Esq., Simon Elder. Third Carriage—Captain Charles Choate, President Potter, Gardiner Club, C. D. W. Shaw, Sebago Lake. The Club carried two new banners bearing the following inscription: “Portland Temperance Reform Club. We Hare to do Right.” “P. T. Reform Club. Wo bend the knee But not the elbow.” The procession proceeded down Exchange street to Middle, up Middle to Free, up Free to High, down High to Spring, up Spring to State, through State to Congress, down Congress t° City Hall, when a grand mass meeting was held. The hall was not nearly filled bat those present appeared very earnest. Chandler’s hand nwj ouuvivubu tu buu iuai uuu 141DJJCU30V4 unusually fine music during the meeting. President Pearson of the Portland Reform Club called the meeting to order and invited the Presidents, part Presidents and Vice Presi dents of the clubs represented to take seats on the stage. The clubs at Bath, Auburn, Bow doinham, Buckfield, Casco, Gray, Freeport, Damariscotta, Biddeford, Augusta, Lewiston, Belfast, Gorham, Saccarappa, Scarboro and Windham were represented by delegates. The meeting opened with the singing of "Nearer my God to Thee” by the congregation. Chaplain Perry of the Portland Club then read the scriptures and offered prayer. The chair man then appointed the following committee of five to prepare a list of speakers for the even ing meeting: Messrs. H. W. Bryant of Lewis ton, Chadbourn of Saco, Eastman of Lewiston, Hinckley of Auburn and Lefavor of Port land. President Pearson of the Portland Club then welcomed the visiting club3 in a few well chosen remarks. He spoke of the origin of the meeting being in Belfast two months ago at the time of the State meeting of the clubs. The object of the rally he stated was to try and wake up our citizens ou the subject of temper ance, to convert drunkards, and we propose to work diligently to accomplish the result. We welcome you in the hope you will aid us and we trust that you have come prepared, wear ing your whole armor. When we met at Bel fast we had labored hard but only numbered 113 members. Since that our membership has nearly doubled and now we have 211 members in the Portland club. He said that last year there were 476 less arrests than the year before and he had been told that the Reform club and Father Bradley’s total abstinence society were the direct causes of the falling off in the arrests. He closed the address with an invitation for all to attend the meetings. After music by the band Mr. Langley of Bangor was called to speak. A fine appearing gentleman stepped to the edge of the platform and stated he had used intoxicating liquors for thirty years but two years ago through the labors of the Ladies Crusade of Bangor he signed the Iron Clad pledge and had been enabled to keep it ever since. He spoke in the highest terms of the labors of the ladies in Bangor. They found him a miserable drinking man but by their prayers he had been saved from a drunkard’s grave, As the next speaker was introduced, every eye was turned toward the platform and all was quiet. A neatly dressed, well appearing man stepped forward and at once began tbe recital of bis past life. He bad been a drink ing man for many years and a very wicked mam but seven months ago he signed the pledge and has kept it ever since. He had found more pleasure in being a saved man that length of time than in being a drunkard for twenty years. He spoke strongiy of moral suasion and said it was all that error saved him. Ida spoke in a very earnest manner and probably not one who heard him doubted but what he meant what he said. He closed with a few personal remarks. He said that he did not know any man better than he knew Nelson Leighton,—that notorious Nelse Leighton as it ha3 appeared in che papers so many times, hut he added, by the help of God it shall never so appear again. Mr. Cbadbourne of Saco, was the next speaker, and a very interesting one too. He apparently had several little matters cn his mind which troubled and so he made a clean breast and told a few plain facts about tbe wicked city of Portland. He said be had been a drinking man for several years, but since he signed the pledge he had kept it to the letter. He spoke of the great work done in York coun ty. Two years ago there were 80 open bars be sides the apothecary stores in the county, now there is not one. Moral suasion has done a large part of this work, and where that failed we took the law. The women of York county have been at work and have accomplished a splendid result. \Ve in Biddeford do not think that you iu Portland are doing your duty. If you were our young men would not come here and get intoxicated at your open bars. It seems as though Portland has a society for dragging down men whom are trying to reform All this is that a few men can make money. The speaker closed with a warm appeal for the temperance cause President Pearson refuted the charge of Mr. Cbadbourne that Portland was such a wicked place. He admitted that all was not as it should be, but the Portland Reform Club is to clear this all up if they are supported by oar Citizens. Mr. Eastman, President of the Lswiston Club, was next called. He stated that be was not a public speaker but was glad to be present. He was sorry tbo hall was not filled, and if the meeting was held in Lewiston he was suro the hall would be packed. H. M. Bryant of Lewiston was the nrxt speaker. He spoke of the procession and thought it was a great honor to the club. He said hat all recognized Portland as the rum shop of the whole state. He was in favor of every system of closing up the rum shops. What we need here is the sympathy and sup port of the public. He next referred to the work of the pastors of churches. He thought that every pastor should not miss an oppor' tunity to speak of the temperauce cause. He thought there was not a clergyman present, f This was not correct, as the reporter could see ...... _... 1-T. . .... . 1 tj wished the wine sellers on Bramhall Hill could be cleaned out. He next spoke of the breaking up of the whisky riug. He hoped that the gov ernment could never got a cent from the manu facturers of liquors. Ho did not believe in car rying the temperance question into politics, but he was willing to vote for temperance every time. He was applauded very often while speaking. Mr. Taylor of the Bowdoishatn club, was the next speaker. This club has not been organ zed but a short time, but is now in a vety i flour is hi u 3 condition. There are 315 members on the roll. They have a room nicely fitted up by the Ladies Aid Society. It is furnished with books and papers by the Society. The meeting closed with an invitation from the President of the Portland club for all to at tend the meeting in the evening. EVENING The attendance in the evening was much larger than in the afternoon. The ball was well filled, and the audience evinced great interest in the remarks of the different speakers throughout the evening. At ten minutes of 8 the representatives of different Reform Clubs in the state took their places upon the plat form. ‘ Hold the Fort” was then sung by the audience with rousing effect. The Chaplain of the Portland Reform Club, Mr. Franklin Per ry, then read from the Scriptures and offered a fervent prayer. Then followed music, and after that the speaking begau. On account of the number of speakers whom the audience were auxious to hear, but ten minutes was allowed ■ to each. The President first introduced Mr Charles H. Choate, ex-President of the Port ) land Reform Club. Mr. Choate related his ex 1 perience with rum in an interesting uud forci ble manner. Ho did not wish to be considered as a public lecturer, but as a reformed man The time had been when the mothers and wive of this city had shut their doors upon him, thi drunkard. Now they invited him to thei homes that he might influence their husbandi and sons to become temperance workers. Twen ty months ago he gave his word and sacrer honor that ha would not touch the intoxicating cup, and he had kept his pledge. It was be hind bolts and bars that he had signed th< pledge. Many think they will not pledge away their liberty and become slaves, but these very men are slaves to drink. He then gave touch ing accounts of his experience as a commor sailor, to which condition he fell by reason oi his habits, and the agony and suffering of i winter night he spent in Now York after re turning from a voyage to Cuba. It is not only the misery we suffer ourselves, but the misery others suffer for us that should stimulate us tc urge this glorious cause. Mr. A. T. Hillman of the Auburn Club, was next introduced, and he gave an eloquent and stirring appeal in behalf of temperance. Aftei bitter experience with the fascinations of the cup he stood before the audience a thoroughly reformed man. There was no lack of early training or influence in his case. But he had not regarded it, and had reaped Its inevitable results. When the cry comes “Hold the tem perance fort,” let the cry go back “By Thy grace we will.” President Pearson then introduced Mr. Geo_ Facey of the Portland Club. Although he could neither read nor write, be knew the meaning of the word temperance. After 35 years of drinking, he bad at last established himself upon the rock of salvation—the pledge, It does not matter whether the man be of high or low degree, whenever be lifts up his voice God will hear and aid him. He illustrated his remarks by apt stories, and was listened to with close attentien. Charles Withington of the Buckfie'.d Club followed Mr, Facey, and spoke well and to the point. It is not expected that reformers can speak in public. We come from our farms and workshops simply to tell our experience and urge others to profit thereby. We are reform ed through and through, or elso we would not do this. We want to stop the sources of drink ing, the rum shops, or else we cannot reform men. Social drinking is the great evil, for here it is young men begin. We are not working for ourselves alone, generations yet to come are to [cap me Denents. me motners ana sis ters come forward and sign the pledge, and not allow a drop of liquor in the house. Hr. T. A. Eastman, President of the Lewis ton Club, was next called upon. He gave an instructive account of the progress of the Lew iston Club, and was very interesting. Where ever he is he makes it a point to speak a word for temperance. The Lewiston Club numbers about 700 members on the iron-clad and 7000 on the general pledge. He had never drunk much liquor, but enough to become a reformer. He was glad to see such interest manifested in Portland. He hoped the ladies would take the matter in hand and make reform in Portland a success In connection with the Lewiston Club there is a Woman’s Aid Society, and a Boys’ Belorm Club. The latter contains 250 members between the ages of 6 and 18 years. The City Government had allowed them the free use of the City Hall in which to hold their Sunday meetings, and this bad been crowded Sunday after Sunday. They have now rented a hall and their yearly expenses are about $1200, the most of which is raised by entertainments, and what is lacking is easily raised among the friends of the cause. Mr. H. M. Bryant next gave the most power ful and rousing address of the evening. He said, I am engaged in the work of temperance because I hate rum and rum’s doings. I have never found anything favorable to say of it. A familiarity with it has bred contempt, It were better the small-pox than a cargo of rum should come into your harbor. Space forbids a longer account of his stirring exhortation. He was listened to with the closest attention, and his remarks were greeted with frequent applause. Mr. W. A. Langley of the Banger Club, and Mr. Hinckley of the Auburn Club, related ex periences that called forth the warmest sympa thy of the audience. The enthusiasm was sus tained throughout the evening, and the excel lent music of Chandler’s Band added much to the pleasure of the occasion. President S. T. Pearson of the Portland Club, presided with credit, and his remarks were opportune and to the point The result of this convention can not bat be an awakening of the people of Port, land to increased exertions against the evils of intemperance. At the close of the meetiDg 191 names were added to the pledge. There will be a praise meeting tomorrow fore noon in City Hall, to commence at 9.30. In the afternoon Mrs. Clark will add to the inter est of the meeting by singing. Memorial Day.—The committee of Bos worth Post have about completed their ar rangements for the observance of memorial day. The comrades will report at headquarters at 8 o’clock and receive decorations. Then route officers designated for that purpose will proceed to decorate the graves at Eastern, Western, Forest City and Calvary cemeteries. Also will decorate Liucoln tree with appropri ate ceremonies. At 9 o’clock, all comrades are ordered to assemble and join the escort. The line will form in front of the Grand Army Hall, at 1,30 prompt. The procession will be under the direction of the chief marshal, prob ably E. H. Hanson. The procession will go over the following route: up Congress street to State, down State to Spring, through Spring to High, up High to.Free, down Free and Middle, to Temple, up Temple to Congress, down Con gress to City Building where the invited guests will be received. Then down Congress to Pearl, down Pearl to the Rochester depot, where they will take the cars for Evergreen Cemetery. On arriving at the Cemetery, they will march to the memorial lot where the Post will be divided into sections and each section will at once proceed in charge of officers to decorate the graves in the sections assigned them, after which efch section will report to the comrades in line and march to the memo rial lot and decorate a minature monument and the grave on the lot. Then there will be music by the band, prayer by the chaplain followed by a dirge by the band, then the procession will form and return to the city. In the evening the services at city hall will be much the same as last year. The oration will be delivered by Col. Merrill, of the Lawrence American. It is propose! to have a memorial service at the City Hall, the Sunday before, but the arrangements are not yet completed. Centennial Day in Portland.—The deco rations in Portland yesterday were not on an extensive Scale, and no one would have guessed that it was the day fur the opening of the Centennial Exposition. The store of Deering, Milliken & Co., on Middle street was the only place in the city where there was much of a display. This store was decorated with great care an! presented a flue appearance. The front of the building was decked with flags, and on entering the store it was impossible to enumerate the vast collection. Nearly oppo site the entrance to the spacious salesroom, hangs a flag bearing an excellent likeness of Lincoln. To the left is the shield of Maine, and on another pillar hangs the Liberty bell, while at the side of the stairs can be seen Uncle Sam extending a cordial welcome to all natious. The windows were elaborately decor atea, anu every puiar m me long room was eutwined with bunting. Standing at the front entrance of the store there seemed to he noth ing but a cloud of little banners in the room. They were very nicely arranged and not one of them seemed to be out of place, Last evening the store was lighted and presented a brilliant spectacle. It was from this store that the High School boys procured their Centenni al neck-ties. This firm have a large stock of just such goods which will be in good demand before the Centennial is over. Nearly opposite, the store of J. T. Lewis & Co. was decorated but in not so elaborate a manner. A flag was also hung across Middle street, from Merrill, Prince & Co.’s, and the flagon the City Building was hoistel during the day, Centennial Wedding.—At Arcana Hall last evening a party assembled to witness the marriage ceremony between Miss Clara A, Mason and Jacob Hays, after which there was a concert. But the event of the evening in the way of singing, was the appearance of T. E. Smith, who sung in character, the son®, “They All Have a Mate but Me” and “The Bold Militia Man”, which he sung in response to an encore. A jolly time was enjoyed by all pres ent. Arrested for Swindling.—A. B. Simmons, a Gardiner photographer, recently hired a bos in the Portland post office, and began to mail letters here proposing to sell counterfeit money, fl re for one. He was arrested in Gardinei Monday, brought before United States Com missioner Band Tuesday, and bound over in the sum of $500 to appear at the June term ol the District Court in Bangor. —I The Oratorio of Theodora. i The performance of Handel’s “Theodora,’' i b; the Haydn Association, will be an occasion of unusual musical Interest. This admirable i oratorio has lain unregarded since its first ■ renditions in March, 1750—the year following that in which it was written—until 1860, when it was once performed at Cologne, under the leadership of Dr. Ferdinand Hiller; and again in England in 1873. It is, therefore, a proof of the enterprise and appreciative interest in music of the Haydns that they seleoted this work for presentation. It will be found to be a composition pleasing to both popular and criti cal taste; in a less weighty and severe manner than the “Messiab,” “Samson” and others of the colossal works by which Handel is best known, it occupies in its style of treatment a middle ground between his “Acis and Galatea” and similar cantatas, and his oratorios of which the text is more or less directly takeu from scripture. Not unfrequently is the hearer re minded too of some of the beautiful airs which alone remain to memory out of the fifty opera! —Rinaldo, Lucio Vero, Rodelinda—names con nected at present with some one stately song, seldom heard, but which once were the mode of the day and played to crowded houses night ly. Written for the fashion of the time, they too passed—leaving only for us gems whose antiquated setting has fallen away. In “Theodora,” the composer was as usual unluckv in his librettist—whn an smthnritv has said, was Dr. Morell—and from its resem blance to some of the painful and pompous utterances of this poet, it seems probable that to him Handel owed this opportunity of rising above his text. The argument of the oratorio is a simple one; Valens, the President of Antoch, proclaims a feast in honor of Diocle tian. Theodora, a princess of the line of Antiochus, is a devoted Christian and refusing to join in the heathen sacrifices, is imprisoned. Didimus, a Roman officer, has been converted b. her influence, and has also a deep affection for her. His friend and fellow-officer, Septi mius—who, although himself a Pagan, pities the sad fate of Theodora, gaius access for Didimus to the prison. At the entreaty of Didimus, Theodora changes |her dress for bis, and returns to her people. Didimus is then condemned to death, and Theodora hastens to save him by offering her life for his—but the tyrant Valens sentences them both to death, and they are led away to execution, amid the laments mingled with rejoicing faith of the believers. The original story is to be found> says Butler in his "Lives of the Saints,” in the writings of St. Ambrose. The characters are individual and well con. trasted; Theodora (soprano), Irene, her confi dante (contralto), Didimus (contralto), Septi. mius (tenore), and Valens (basso), with choruses of Christians and Pagans. The overture is ex ceedingly interesting, and is notably fine, even among those of its composer. Among the airs is the familiar and always lovely "Angels ever bright and fair;” while the song of Irene “Lord to thee each night and day” can scarcely be counted second to it in beauty and fervor. Handel himself is said to have considered the chorus “He saw the lovely youth,” one of his finest efforts in choral composition even ex ceeding in worth his inspired and inspiring "Hallelujah;" and acquaintance with the pious meditative chorus which records the raising of the son of the widow of Nain; its noble man ner, its intense feeling, the mingled solemnity and fire which fill it—tends to confirm concur rence in the opinion which the composer him self passed upon his own work. It is understood that the selection of tlii fine oratorio for present rendition by theHaydns was in part the result of the counsel of an ex perienced amateur, who retains in later age the freshness of interest in musical matters which has characterized bis earlier years, and whose suggestion was gladly adopted by the govern ment of the society, who have earnestly at heart the musical welfare of Portland. The Htuenm. "Romeo and Juliet” was given at the Mus eum last evening to a much smaller audience than the fine acting of Mr. Wheelock deserved. The tragedy, even if given only moderately well, should command a full house. The ex cellent characterization of Mr. Wheelock ought to fill the Museum. Of that characterization, as given on a former occasion, we have spoken at length, and have little to add to that com uivuuuwuu. AU uiou auv Ull. 11 UCUIUbO. ticb ed with less spirit than he usually displays. But in the second act he rose to the height of the situation, and thenceforward vras the ideal “Borneo,” handsome, graceful, passion ate. He held his audience iu close and rapt at tention to the fall of the curtain. “Juliet,” that child of passioD, did not find jn Miss Cameron an interpretation that meets the general conception; but her impersonation was marked by many excellencies. She threw herself into the spirit of her part, was good so far as gestnre and facial expression were con cerned, and even freed herself in a measure from her crying fault of voice; but she failed to convey the passion and tenderness which we associate with “Juliet.” Mr. Bascomb was a little heavy for “Mer cutio,” obo of the most difficult parts, by the way, which is attempted on the stag#, but in the main gave a good rendition. Mr. Eeed had little to do as “Benvolio,” and did that little illy. Mrs. Preston was very bad as the nurse. Mr. Gale gave “Paris” with fir more spirit than on a former occasion. The other parts were fairly taken. The play will be re peated this eveniDg only, and deserves a large house. Some seats yet remain for Mr. Wheelock’s benefit tormorrow night. On that occasion only “Bichelieu” will be produced, the “Shaughraun” being revived for Saturday afternoon and evening. As this is the last benefit of the season, occurring on the last night but one, and as Mr. Wheelock is an actor whose great merits deserve hearty recognition, we hope to see a crowded house. This morning the sale of seats opens for the performance of “Julius Csesar” by the fine company from Booth’s Theatre. The brilliancy of the cast has elicited the most flattering encomiums of the New York press, and these have the hearty endorsement of a public long familiar with the highest order of acting. The genius of Barrett has invested the character of “Cassius” with so much individuality that he seems the very Bomau Shakespeare drew* while the classic beauty of Bangs’ “Marcus Antonins, the stateliness of the “Caesar” of Levick, and the dignified repose and intellectual grandeur of the impersonation of “Brutus,” by the great tragedian, Davenport, challenge the stage of either here or abroad for near approach. The offering will be worthy the patronage of the people of this vicinity, fond of exalted dramatic art, and we look to see the Museum filled to its utmost capacity. The play will be given for one night only. Maine Savings Bans.—The Annual Meet ing of the corporators of this institution was held yesterday afternoon, and the following named members were elected trustees, viz:— Samuel Bolfe, Charles Fobes, W.

There have been over 2000 cords of lumber delivered at the mills in Lovell. All the mills are running on full time. Shipping boards sold at Machias last week at $13, $14 and $14.25 per M. In the Machias market butter 28 to 32 cents; eggs 15, potatoes 50. All these artioles are quite plenty and potatoes are very poor in qual ty. The Machias Union says Mr. Ramsdall last week sold a granite quarry to Boston paities; located on the east side of the Addison river, at "The Dick,” about five miles below the Point village. It is in close proximity to an excellent harbor, and the granite can bo easily loaded into vessels. The granite is a blueish color and polishes finely. It is thought that the new owners will get off two or three cargoes early this season. Fryeburg: Academy. The spring term ot the Fryeburg Academy under the direction of Mr. Augustus Simmons, closed Tuesday evening with a most interesting exhibition. The programme was composed of declamations, recitations, select song and chor uses by the school. The speakers were Fred W. Powers, Chas. H. Fessenden, Lillian B. Ward, Anna Barrows, Samuel Stark, Lizzie C. Shirley, Laura Glines, Claytie Pike, Clemmie L. Houghtcn, Wirgie W. Howe, Hattie L. Glines, Maggie B. Farrington, Mary G. Howe of Fryeburg, and Ida W. Baker of Boston, A. 8. Sawtell of Quincy, Mass. While some showed more aptitude for the stage, to single out individual cases of merit would seem like doing injustice to others. The songs of Miss ■ Hattie A. Pike were repeatedly encored by the audience. The original declamation by Josiah H. Heald of Lovell deserves especial mention as a production showing a depth of thought and a knowledge of human uature rarely seen in a young man of seventeen years. Prof. Simmons resigned his charge of the school some days ago. Probably jno teacher in the history of the academy ever left behind warm er friends or more golden opinions as an in structor. Possessing a rare executive ability, coupled with a thorough knowledge of the coming wants of every-day life of his students, he not only gave them thorough' instruction in books but lasting impression of duties which in after life will be of lasting benefit to them. Both he and his estimable wife leave hosts of friends behind. The summer term, and the academic year which begins with the fall term, will be in charge of Rev. C. H. Zimmerman, A. M„ and Mrs. Z., who have had large experience as edu cators at the South and West. Although not long resident at the North, they have also es tablished for themselves a wide literary repu tation by their vigorous contributions to Scrib ner, Lippincott, the Christian Union, Inde pendent and other journals. Mrs. Z. has dem onstrated by the peculiar merit of her compo sition that her brothers, the well known Eggle' stons, have not monopolized all the talent of the family. The friends of this veuerable institution— tne oiaest acauemv save one in tue state—pro pose to uiaKe a Centennial effort for the in crease of its funds,in order that its local sphere of usefulness may be enlarged. Furniture at Low Prices.—There proba bly never was a better time to furnish a house with handsome new furniture at low prices than at present. Several months ago Messrs, George A. Whitney & Co. advertised that they would pay cash for bankrupt stocks of furni- « ture. In answer to the advertisement they re ceived letters from several bankrupt Boston firms, offering furniture for about 50 per cent, of what it is sold for at wholesale. Taking ad vantage of these most liberal offers, the firm have purchased a large stock of black walnut [ chamber sets, parlor suits, tables, &o., &c., t which they can and will sell at greatly reduced ; prices. For instance, they have a splendid ' heavy walnut chamber set of ten pieces which | they offer at $135, when it is well known tlu t : the same would have cost $250 a year or so ago. They also have other sets which are as good as can be made, which retail at $200 and were formerly sold at $450. Their parlor suits, up holstered in real hair,are sold at corresponding ly low prices. Their establishment is full of just suoh bargains, which only needs to be seen to be bought. All who wish to buy furni ture should visit this well known store on Ex change street. Kid Gloves—The best assortment of kid gloves to be found at Davis & Co.’s, together with a full line cf gauze and lisle. Fine Furniture, Pianos, &c., at Auc tion.—To-day at 10 and 2^ o’clock, F. O.

Next Monday the new route between Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, will open for the Centennial season. Without any change of cars, passengers will leave the New York and New England station in Boston, either at 9 a. m. or 7 p. m., and go by the way of the Hartford, Providence and Fishkill and New York and New Haven line to the Harlem river, where the transfer steamer Maryland will convey the train to Jersey city. Here tte Pennsylvania road will be taken and passen gers landed at the Centennial grounds in less than twelve hours after leaving the Hub. Ou the day express, Pullman’s palace drawing room cars—made expressly for this route—will be run, and comfortable sleeping cars on the night train. Without doubt this new route will be very largely patronized by the throng of sight-seers who will go to the Centennial from New England. It will also be taken by by many Washington and Baltimore travellers, the arrangement at Philadelphia ensuring an unbroken journey to those points. Excursion tickets may now be had at 205 Washington street, and at the New York and New England station, foot of Summer street.—Boston Globe.
