To wake up in tho morning and tiud
that ono'B house has been ransacked
during tho night, and all tho articles of
value removed, is not a pleasant sensa
tion. Tho modus operandi of tho un
seen caller has often been a matter of
considerable speculation on tho part of
tho unfortunate victim, but tho realiza
tion n dillicult thing to see, because
detection brings to a sudden tormina
tion tho robber's vocation. In "Tho
Burglar," Gub Thomas' comedy-drama,
thoro is an excellent opportunity to
witness tho burglar's methods, from his
stealthy entrance with bullsojo lamp
and jimmy in hand to his departure
after discovery. Ono gets a good idea
of a house breaker's celerity in discover
ing valuables, and tho quickness dis
plajed in reducing lengthy articles to a
convenient portable Bie, in ordoi to
moro readily carry their plunder. Tho
play is Bet in an environment of pretty
homo pictures, and presented by a good
company. "The Burglar" will bo given
at tho Lansing Thursday.

Bessio Bcllwood, who iBidread) known
to a lurgo proportion of tho American
public as ono of tho "characters" of
London, made her American debut the
other night at Kostor and Bial's, New
York, in tho specialties which have
given hor renown throughout tho great
music hall world of England.
Tho fame of this British favorite
rests partly on hor artistic achieve
montfl und puitly on her success in
other directions, but it is only iib an
artist that sho should bo judged in this
democratic country, although tho fact
that she has "knocked out" several
huckmen in undoubtedly u Btrong point
in her fuvor.
Mies Bell wood tlrst burst upon the
vision of her American Bpectutors ut
tired in u green vvulst, brocaded Bkirt,
brown stockings and u red capo. Tho
combination of colors was pleusing if
not startling, and it her feet had been a
little lurgor sho might buvo puuaod aa
tho high-born heroine of one of Ouida'H
novels. In this garb she sang a song
about "dancing In tho moonlight." a
past hue for which her costume was
evidently designed it would not have
miBweredfor tho Patriarchs' ball-and
warbled as a refrain. "But how can 1
bo glad, without me Irish lad?"
In her next change hIio was seen in a
dress of striped )ellow, green, and
cream, and tho burden of her cry was:
"High diddle diddle dum," a subtle up
peal which went homo to overy heait.
Then bIio appeared in a brown dress
rich in red spots and sang a song with a
'part spoken," the sort of thing which
is referred to by Herodotus as ono of
thofavorlto recreations of the ancients.
This song was about
Onl) I linnulno It-
aud it was enthusiastically applauded.
So great was the applause that Mips
Hell wood put on a plush sack and Bang
something about "I'm a Lady That's
Seen Better Dujs." a ditty that con
tallied enough of tho gray mutter
known as "part spoken" to give her
auditors an idea of her ability as a con
versationalist rather than as a singer.
"A Question of Honour" by Ljndo
Palmer, published by Dodd, Mead it
Company is a simple, unpretentious
stor) that enlists attention at tho start
and holds it to tho end. A voung man
owned somo bunk stock; ho learned no
cidentally that tho bunk would shoitly
collapse; ho immediately sold his hold
ing, while tho credit of the institution
was unimpaired. Tho stock was subse
quent!) purchased by tho guardian of
tho girl tho )oung man loved and both
tho guardian and his ward lost their
money when tho bank failed. Tho
question of honor seems to be, What
ought lie to have done when ho learned
of the bank's condition? It is probable
that a very largo percentage of people
would iiiibw or, "Just what ho did do."
The characters aro cleverly drawn, and
tho "Puige Io)b" are represented iib a
very unusual combination of good
qualities with a stiuggle in tho case of
two of them between lovo and brotherly
uffeotion. "Doroxhy," the heroine, is a
lovable )oung woman, with a strong in
dividuality. Thoro is a pathetic olo
ment in tho story and some wholesome
In "National Consolidation of tho
Rail w a) s of tho United States," George
H. Lewis, of tho Dos Moines bar, pre
sents somo interesting and valuable in
formation touching tho great railway in
terests of this country, and makes a
strong plea for national consolidation
through tho formation of u great
national railway corporation owning and
controlling all tho railwnjs of tho
country, and governed by an organiza
tion representing tho stato und national
governments and tho stock holdors
owning tho road. It is an elaborate
project; but tho author succeeds in
making a good showing of its feasibility.
The subject is handled in an intelligent
manner, and there is a manifest pur
pose to represent tho different sides of
tho railway question impartially. Mr.
Lewis' book is published by Dodd,

Next to tho world's fair, nil our
foroign friends vvunt to boo Ninguru
Falls, and in tho minds of many,
Niagara Falls is placed first. Ono of
the first questions they ask an Ameri
can either ut homo or aboard is about
Niagara, but to many of us Niagara
Fulls is too neur. Were it on tho other
sideof tho world, thousands ot American
globe trotters would hasten there, who
pass it by now becauso thoy can go
there uny time.
