Tho strangest: seonos that ever took place In Boston firc now betnp enacted every morning from 10 to 11 o'clock In Tremont TcinjiU*. People oi every denomination and neurly evpry nationally flock to Tremont Tempje overy morning by ibo hundreda to "witness 3>r, Henlon'd healing of tho sick by tho laying ou of hands. This form or nmnnor or trcatmont is as old. jib the world} but never in our time have we awn a man that could come so uenr raising the dotal as Dr. Eonlon. Yesterday morning a lady was carried to Tremont Temple, who -was nothing but a living Skeleton; Khe bad to bo carried by two persons; she Jiad boon a honeleag, helpless invalid for years, her fiesh was so wasted that Dr. Henlou could span tho ankle with his thumb nnd finder and carry it cloar to the knee without unclasplnp It, "When tho doctor treated her wiuo, ho said, "l'eihapa the audience "would better comprehend the lady's condition if they should see tho arm." He accordingly pushed up fcer dress sleeve and clasped his thumb �ud finger around tho wrist, and slid it cloar to the shoulder, and a- murmor and exclamation of surprise oamo from all pans of the Temple, Dr. Henion passed his hands over the limbs and body, over the clotldng, and within 10 minutes tho lady y/raB "walking across the platform without any assistance, and walked down the steps off of the etafre nod took a seat among: tho audience; and nftor tho t)octor closed his lecture she walked out of tho Temple alone, and went her "way rejoicing. Mrs. Lewis Richards, who resides at Limerick, We., has been n iQlpless sufferer for a year, She has had to have some j one to dress her and comb her hair; shohas not been j able to get up out of a chair without the assistance two persons. Mrs. Lewis was carried to Tremont | 'Xomple and placed in a chair upon the platform. ] and within 10minutes after Dr. Tlenion commenced i *to pass Ws hands over her she arose from her 1 chair and walked around the plntform and walked down the stops without assistance, apparently as well as ever sho was. A man with heart disease �wag cured in a minuto; a lady who had been deaf for 17 years was cured in five minutes; a lady \rho had been blind for two years was mado to bco, and an old lady wbo had to orawl up tho stairB was cured in avo minutes and dancod around the platform, to the great amusement of tho large audlenco. Every form of disease was presented and cured, Many who stated they had been in tho hospital for months wore restored in a few minutes. Everybody who reads this article should go to Tremont temple and witness these str/inge scenes; do not Bay this is not true; for every word of it is true; and v.-q advise our renders to go to the Temple and witness Dr. Heiiion's heaven-born gift; ho can surprise the sceptical with his marvellous ''gift of healing.'* Dr. Henion is also a thoroughly educated physician, and his description oi disease is very interesting and instructive. Dr. Henion will continue to heal the sick free of Charge in Tremont Temple for weeks to come, from 3.0 to 11 o'clock every morning, except Sundays, and everybody is invited to go, and those who fail to go will miss sceiug tho greatest wonder of the age.

To nit Ji-i.J � Advice Free In 1S88 when all t.lio nvomoai of Boston were stirred and stirring on tho police matron question, attention was attracted to the grand work boing done in a quiet way by Mrs. Charpiot, in her homo for intemperate women; for the work of reform among women, which'she had proved could bo done by doing it f or years, was just what it was hoped these police matrons would aid in accomplishing. Mrs. Charpiot had turned her own house into the "homo" and tho work had grown so that sho needed larger dunrters. To help hor obtain this tho philanthropic women of Boston orgamzod a huge fair, one of tho largest and most successful over held in our city. This was under tho charge of Mrs. Micah Dyer, Jr., and a committeo of fifty. When tho final meeting of this coinmittoo was called, it was found that these ladies, who had worked together so lone' and so 'pleasantly, felt reluctant to sever tho friendly tios thus formed. So it was decided to perpetuate them, instead, by a closer union, and thus the Woman's Charity Club was born. The writer was a charter membor of this organization, though reluctantly, and protesting that thoro were already "clubs enough hce in Boston;" and sho wishes to take this opportunity, of confessing that tho Woman's Charity Olub hah' proved its right to existence by tho good it has already dono in its short lifo-tirne. If "beauty is its own excuse for being," as the poot sings, suroly good works have a still stronger claim to the privilege of life. So here's to the Woman's Charity Club, and long may it wave! Tho club was formed on April 17, 1888, and incorporated in April, 1880. There was a (rreat deal of discussion as to the naming of this child, and some of those proposed would tako several lines of this column, so long were they. "You might just as well tie a stone around its neck and drown it, like a blind kitten," said one excitable member. "What wo want is something short, snappy and expressive, something that will make a good headline in a newspaper report; and I movo that this orgaiuzation bo called the 'Woman's Charity Club.'" Some of the older and more conservative members objected to the word "olub" as too suggestive of convivial gathering of the sterner sex (!) But tho more progressive element carried tho day, and when the president, Mrs. Micah Dyer, defined tho word as standing for "Chanty, Lovo, Union and Bonoficonco" all were reconciled. This discussion about the name should be mado a mnttor of record because it shows that in tho year of our Lord 1888, there wero in Boston, women so conservative as to object to the name of "club" as a word of ill repute, not suitable lor an organization of The work of tho club and other interesting facts are set forth in the Constitution.

Tho olllccrs of this club Bhnll be elected annually at the first regular meeting In April. During the first vow of its existence tho Charity Club aided still further the Home for Intemperate Women, and it was in re-cognition of the services of the club, por-hnps, tliiit a committee from the club, Mrs. Eh-.foHo M. H. Merrill, chairman, was invited to tako charge of tho laying of tho corner-stone of tho new building for. tho Homo on Binney st. This was done with appropriate ceremonies and in presenco of a ltiriTO audience, Friday afternoon, June 1-1, 18Kn. The club also aided the Woman's Educational and Industrial Union, the Helping Hand Society, Post GS of tho (x. A. ft., and other objects, earning and distributing about $2000 in this first year. Part of the money was earnod by a reception and vnusicule at the Parker House, Boston, on the evening of Wednesday, Feb. 13,18811, and more at the breakfast given in Faueuil Hall in tho spring of that year. In the latter part of .1880 tho Charity Club began to talk ot establishing a hospital for women. This was suggested by the closing of the Mui-doek Free Hospital for Women and the Knowledge that scores who had been waiting for an opportunity for treatment were turned away and doomed to die perhaps tor want of means to secure necessary surgical aid. Says Hie president of the club in her first report .concerning lliis work: "A very de-sirahle house was just then offered for sale, mid a .surgeon, whilst! skill lias no rival but his own benevolence, consented .to give his services to our eaaso. A special meeting was culled, and (lie question of a hospital for surgical operations in abdominal diseases was discussed. The greatest impediment seemed to lie in the fact that. the. treasury of the Charity Olub was positively empty. Hut so strong was tho feeling of pity lor, and duly toward, those suffering women, who were slowly and surely dying, and who could, we felt, lie saved to their families by such a hospital-that the ladies, reiving on ihogenerosuy of the great public heart, decided to buy the house, and open the hospital at once, admitting patients from all New lint;land. "George W. Cohnrn, Ksti., the owner of the house, sympathizing with oureliaritable designs, soid its the house for $2000 less than an offer he was just considering, and allowed us to give a mortgage of the whole amount, not requiring anything to lie paid down.

Foster, Augustus Russ, George W. Pope. George S. Hale, Micah Dyer, Jr. Tho club now counts over 300 members. Vassar Students' Aid Society. No more practical work^or other women, or for the college or school which they represent, can be thought of, than that of tho Students' Aid Societies which the alumnse of various institutions have in our midst. Tho Vassar Alumnte for example, have a very nourishing "Boston branch of the Vassar Students' Aid Society," whioh is doing a most admirable work. This branch offers a scholarship at Vassar, to that applicant therefor, who shall pass the bost entrance examination in June, 1801, tho competition being restricted to localities represented in the membership of the branch. The examinations will bo held in Boston and elsewhere if necessary, applications being made to Mrs. FrankH. Monks, Monmouth St., Brooklino, Mass. A meeting of the branch was hold in the Roger's building, M. I. T., Thursday afternoon, at which Prof. David G. Lyon of Harvard University kindly gave his very interesting illustrated lecture on "Tho Stato of Learning at Babylon, 550 B. C." Tho-executive committeo, consisting of Miss Emma B. Culbertson, M. D., 33 Newbury st., Boston, Mrs. Frank II. Monks, Miss Alice Hayes, Mrs. Hemaa M. Burr and Miss Elizabeth G. Houghtou.announces that subsequent meetings of tho Branch will be held oarly in December, February and April. At these meetings it is expected that lectures will bo given by Mrs. Ellen H. Richards of tho Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Prof. Albert H. Hart of Harvard University and Miss Eloiso E. Hersoy, tho well-known literary critic and lecturer. All lectures will bo froo to regular and associate members, but an admission fco of 25 cents will bo charged tho friends of mouthers. Hore is an opportunity for all old Vassar students or persons interested in the higher education ot women to holp tho cause along by-their money and influence MUSICAL "The Grand Duchess" lay Stars of the Casino Troupe. Symphony Programmes-Tonight's Offerings at the Boston and Music Mall. Lyceum Happenings Here and There-Preludes and Echoes, Interesting to a remarkable degree'will be the revival of Offenbaeh's"Grarid Duchess of Gerolstoin" at the Globe Theatre tomorrow evening. The famous opora-boui'fo has been presentod in this city many times in years gono by, and is quite familiar to older theatregoers, but tho production of it by Mr. Aronson's company will be almost a novelty, as the treatment and arrangement of text and score will differ materially from the original French. This version was prepared for production in Vienna, and tho composer was presont at tho first performance given in that city, and conducted the orchestra. All the music in the German score is retained in the Casino production, and its success in that theatre was most pronounced during the 100 nights of its run. Tho English words and adaptation are by Edgar Smith and Charles Kenney. The production is said to bo most elaborate, the scenic effects particularly attracting a largo degree of attention from tho New York press. The first act scono shows an encampment of troops in winter, and the grand duchess makes her entrance in a large Russian sledge. Tho second act is a white and ambor salon. The third act is divided into two scenes; tho first is a corridor in tho castle, and the second and last of all an exact duplicate of tho first-act scene, but painted in a summer effect, with the pnlm trees ana grass clothed in summor raiment. New and handsome costumes havo been prepared for tomorrow night's performance; those to be worn by Camille d'Arville (tho grand dttchoss),wero specially designed by Baron Do Grimm. � A sabot dance will oe given in the first act, and a waltz minuet will close the second act. Tho finale of the first act will be made especially effective. Louise Kissing appears as Wanda, Eva Johns as Iza, Drew Donaldson as Olga, Fred Solomon as Puck, George Olmi. as Gen. Bourn, Henry Hallain as Fritz, Max Lube as Prince Paul, A. W. Marlin as Neponno, and J. A. Furey as Grog. AT THE SYMPHONY. Wheaton Seminary Club. The next mooting of the New England Wheaton Seminary Club will be hold at the Thorndike, Boston, Saturday, Nov. 8, at 12 o'clock. Tho business meeting will bo followed by luncheon, served promptly at 1, and by literary exercises at 3 o'clock p. m. The topic for the last will bo "Physical Culture for Women." A short paper on "Gymnasiums for Women" will oe contributed by Miss D. M. Elliott, instructor in the famous Berkely Ladies'Gymnasium, in Now York city. Miss Elliott, who was of tho class of '77 at Wheaton. bus made a thorough stady of physical culture, having received her training at the well-known Adelphi Academy in Brooklyn, in the Now York Medical College for Women, and under Dr. Sargent at tho Hemenway Gymnasium at Harvard Collego, whoro sho has been pupil assistant in the summer schools for two year3 past. Another short paper on "Vocal Culture' will bo givon by Mrs. Gertrude Tucker Wil cox of Btiston, the well-known singer and teacher, while "Healthful Dress" will bo the subject of a papor by Mrs. H.

Tho attention of members is called to tho change of timo for tho literary exorcises from 2 to 3 o'clock, thus affording two full hours for the luncheon and social timo following, an innovation which it is felt sure the club will enjoy.

A Mew Goldmark Overture-Sgambati MoszkowBki and Wagner Eepre-sented on tho Programme. While the new overture, "Prometheus Bound," seoms as a tono picture to be less vivid in coloring than certain of Goldmark's familiar works, it is unquestionably a strong, effective composition. One does not have to read between tho notes to find here set fourth the "storm and'stross" of'the old Greek tragedy which Goldmark had in mind. Mr. Nikisch conducted tho performance of this novolty with the score before hiin, and under his evoking baton a singularly forcoful and impressive lioaring was given tho overture, wldch is scored for a very largo orchestra. Mr. H. G. Tuckor, whose merits as a pianist of ability and earnestness have long been recognized in Boston, was the soloist at the fourth concert. Sgambati's concerto in (} minor found its first hearing before any considerable audionco in Boston. It dpens with a long orchestral introduction-beautifully played by tho way-and the skill of tho pianist rinds comparatively little scope m the opening movement, until the cadenzas are reached. Tho second movement, tho "Romanco," is decidedly superior in interest to the modorato, with which the work opens, and tho soloist's opportunities for the attainment of delicacy in effect are greater. But it is in the closing allegro that the pianist findB his most difficult task; and when it is noted that Mr. Tucker fulfilled all tho requirements of tho exacting score, sufficient lias been said in commendation of his performance of a work which, if not profound, is always musioianly, and for the most part, interesting as woll. Moszkowski's suite in F, with its brilliant and gonerous use of all the resources of the modern orchestra, is a work always to be welcomed by a Boston symphony audionco. Perhaps no offering could have been chosen that would serve as a better test of tho skill, alertness and rosponsivenoss of Mr. Nikisoh's players. Whilo all the movements heard (the intermezzo was omitted, probably on account of the length of tho programme) were delightful to the oar, tho climax of effect was reached in tho lovely andante. Such breadth, fulness and noble sweep of tono could scarcely be excellod. The variations gave quasi solo opportunities now and then, Mr. Mole's artistic flute playing gaining, as it should havo done, a round of applause. But itwas, after all, tho ensemble performance that made this movement, and indeed the entire suite, so effective. Tho just relation betwoon the multitudinous instruments that are broughtinto requisition was maintained by tho leader with an artistic judgmont and appreciation which added quality to the effect of this striking modern work, Wagiior closod the programme The arrangement of tho "Ride of the Valkyries," for orchestra, from his famous opera, certainly taxes the resources ovon of such a corps of musicians aB Mi'. Nikisch has brought together. It was given with all needed power, and sent tho audiences home with plenty to talk about and discuss. Mrs. Walter C. Wyman, the singor, is to bo soloist, at this wook's concerts. Gado's "Ossiau" overture, Dvorak's "Scherzo Ca-priccioso," and Mendelssohn's "Scotch Symphony" aro to be tho orchestral selections. These are two photographs of the same street taken 12 months apart, one in Oct. '89, the other in Get. '90, and their principal merit lies in their picturing the amount of the improvement that one street at Greenwood Park has undergone in the past year. We point with pride to these results, believing that the same thing has not, neither can be done by any other real estate firm in Boston. From unimproved farming land we have transformed Greenwood Park into a flourishing suburb of 40 houses and given it a push forward that will cause still larger growth in the year to come. Our prophecies concerning it have been verified in this substantial growth, and it may be of interest to many to know how this was accomplished. Our aim is to put within the reach of those who have little ready capital, a home. The first step is the acquire- ment of a suitable plot of ground, for when-that is done the rest is comparatively easy. Having selected our location, which, in the case of Greenwood Park, was very fortunate, being close to Boston, on the Boston & Maine, with splendid train service and cheap fares, we build the streets, gravel them and put them in condition for travel. Concrete pavements are laid on all the streets and shade trees planted in front of every lot. Water is next put in and everything done to make the place well improved. Inducements are given builders. Some generous advertising is done. But probably the secret of our success lies in our system of small weekly payments. Our first payment is only $5, and at Greenwood, where the lots vary in price from $100 to $300, the weekly payments vary also from $1 to $1.50 a week. Nothing is charged the purchaser ior improvements-he pays no taxes for four years-and no interest is charged on back payments. The size of the lots at Greenwood are 30 feet front, 100 feet deep and face upon streets 40 and 50 wide. The houses are all required to be built the same distance from the street and must cost more than . This gives the streets a neat appearance, and excludes any undesirable or cheap buildings. All things considered,there is not another as desirable place to live near Boston where lots can be had at a moderate cost with such splendid improvements, and where values have advanced so rapidly as at Greenwood. We wall furnish to all desiring to look, at the property FREE TICKETS by calling for them at our office, and at all times-salesmen on the ground to answer any question, arid show the property. [. Our sale of lots at Greenwood during the opening months was phenomenal, and so few were left that since then we have made no effort to sell, them. During the year some few lots have been given up, so that we have to sell during the next 30 days about 75 choice lots' at this suburb, and thev will be sold at the ORIGINAL PRICE. . This is our special inducement to those who will buy now-you get lots that are worth 15 cents at 10 cents per � foot, lots worth 10 at 6 and 7. We will give you the advantage of the increase in values, both past and future, Lots sold at Greenwood at 10 cents, without a house on the place. With 40 houses they are worth 15. What we . have left you can buy of us at 10 cents. You can 'all speak at once, for those who are disappointed in not getting lots .at Greenwood will be cared for at Wollaston. We have a few houses for sale at Greenwood, convenient, well built and in the best locations. They will be sold on a very small payment down, and parties purchasing given a long time in which to make other payments. To those wanting homes immediately these opportunities should not be lost. They are valuable ones. tipon the voices of his singovs. The Chioago engagement of "The Merry Monarch" is for four weeks, and tho remarlcablo hit made by the opora in that city makes it seem more than probable that the present roooipts will be maintained throughout.

The Russian Art Eitposition at the Arena Building-Local and Foreign News. The largo daily attendance at tho Verest-chagin exhibition at the Arena building, 401 Tremont St., shows that the interest which has boen awakened by the exhibit is still increasing. In addition, is the famous picture .by Millet of the "L'Angelus," which attracts its share of attention, and which will remain here only for a short time. All tho important canvases are pictures of incident, pictures that illustrate actions or conditions that aro concrete history. Notwithstanding the horrors of war are so vividly portrayed ou several canvases, tho exhibition lias an educational influence upon tho visitor; tho beautiful architectural designs of tho Eastern buildings are a study, and give added interest to the lover of the picturesque. It is stated that, the Verestchagin pictures, after their exhibition herq, will be taken to New York for a final display in that city, alter which tho collection will b'e sold at auction and then broken up. It seems as if they ought to be kept together, and it would be well for Boston to secure these works of one ot tho world's greatest masters. Scott Leighton, theaniuialpainter, spends his summers at Poland Springs, Me., and while at work one day last summer making an out-door study a shock-headed countryman, wearing an old army suit, happenea along and espied the artist. He stood regarding him for awhile, puffing away at a short, black pipe, and then, in a drawling voice, inquired: "Say, Mister, do you paint those things for tho market?" Amused at the question, Leighton looked up from his easel and replied in the ailinna-tivu- "Then you must have to paint a blamed lot of 'em in a year to make a living," the rustic continued, "and between you and me, mister, you havo about as mean a business as I have." "That so?" replied the artist interrogatively. "What is your business, my friend?" The countryman gave a closer scrutiny to the work on Leighton's easel, and answered as he moved away. "Oh. my btusi-ness is peddlin' pond lilies 1" And like everything that is too good to keep, the absurd comparison was soon going the rounds among tho.guests at tho hotel. Stephen O'Kelley, the sculptor, has_com-pleted a model in clay of a draped figure entitled, "The Visiting Angel." It is fine in conception, and execution. It will be cast in bronze for the Presbyterian church of Detroit. ST*ich. Adclairej Palmer, who spent the summer at her home in New Hampshire, has returned to Boston for the winter. Her cosy studio, 14i)A Tremont St., room 64, bears ample evidence that she was busy witli^her brush dtu-iug tho vacation season. This artist's work has received tbe stamp of approval from tho best art lovers iu this and other cities. Misses Moulton and Barry are giving an exhibition of their work at their studio No. 44 Boylston st. Their sketches include many line examples, showing good composition anil excellent drawing. At tho Mechanic's fair art exhibit is a painting on straw matting, the subject being "Kmc Ueau and Her Lover," by Sirs. Annie Kiugsley. which attracts attention from its line drawing and effective coloring. W. A. J. Chi us shows "A Pioneer," which is strongly painted ami well drawn. The annual exhibition ef architectural drawings is opened at the gallery of tho St. Botolph Club, 2 Newbury st. It will remain open until Nov. 16. Joseph R, Brown has returned from his summer sketching tour. He visited the Now Hampshire desertod farm distriot in tlio vicinity of New Boston, South Ware, Goffstown, and brings back a portfolio full of studies made in that picturesque locality. Samuel Kittson, tho sculptor, is modelling a bust of J. Boyle O'Roilly, which is said to be on excellent representation of the oris-' inal. _ lETews of Interest Elsewhere. Leading New York art dealers, who havo spent p the slimmer on the continent ol Europe looking for good pictures, declare that the supply is very Bmall compared with the number of good paintings that might easily be placed here. The demand for works of art of a high class has grown to marvellous proportions within the last few years, and the studios of France, of Germany, of Italy and of Spain have been almost emptied. All the old work, particularly of the Barhizan school, whioh was in the hands of dealers or in possession of collectors of small means, has been bought up, and painters whose canvases are in demand have orders for work away ahead of their powers of turning it out, With it all, say the dealers, there are very few new men coining forward whose pictures promise to reach an excellence that will command the favor and patronage of connoisseurs. Mr. George Barnard, an English landscape artist, died recently, aged 83. He was well known for his water-color pictures of Alpine scenery, and was one of the earliest members ot the Alpine Club. He was the author of several important works, including "Foliage and F'oregroundDrawing." "Landscape Water Colors," Drawing from Nature," oto. The exhibition which opened at the Schaus gallery, in New York, last Wednesday, included the following rare pictures: "Portrait of an Admiral," by Rembrandt Van Ryn; "A Squall," by Jacob Van Ruys-dael: Isabella Brant," (Rubens' first wifo), by Peter Paul Rubens: "Tlie Herring Seller," by Frans Hals, and works by Albert Ouyp, Cornells Janssens and Van Goyen. Fred A. Shaw, the sculptor, who has been at work upon a model for a Ipist of Payaon Tucker of Maine, has completed his work, and it receives the highest commendation from all who havo seen it. both as to faithfulness to life and a work of art. It will probably ho sent to Mr. Shaw's studio in Florence at once, to bo copied in marble. Mr. Shaw leaves lor Europe in about three' weeks. A statue of Victor Hugo by Louis Bogino, which was shown at the salon of 1884, and lias been exhibited recently in London under the name "Autumn Leaves," has been purchased for erection on the island of Jersey, where the poet passed his years oi exile- . .... It is proposed to erect at Memphis a statue to Gen. Forrest of the Confederate army.
