of the HKK. ] Several little things arc
big this week to the Fifth nvctiuo section.
Wo Imvo hnit a real prinuo hero who pos
itively refused to bo caged by the swells
nnd lionl/.cd. Tills was Frederick Leo
pold , of ( tcrnmny , grand-nephew of
Kaiser Wilheltn. He put up at a Itroad-
way hotel , registered as Count liohon-
Btoin. The no\)3 \ soon found out who ho
was , and ho was boldly attacked by the
tuft hunters , whoso cards were sent up
to him with all the bra/.en persistency of
life insurance agents or book canvassers ,
Ho saw everybody who came/.and treated
them courteously enough , but ho would
accept no Invitations to social enter
tainment , save from ( Hermans associated
with the ( Ionium consulate. Ho was a
fair looking young fellow , not airy at nil ,
nnd bent only on sening the sights of Now
York. Ho wouldn't bo potted by our
best society , and that was the end of it.
. The chief public exhibition of wealth
nnd fashion was smnll indued , for it was
composed of eight persons only ; but they
were a Vundorbilt party , posml conspicu
ously on the top of a tally-ho coach. A
four-in-hand coach makes a daily trip
from Madison square to the Country
club at I'ciham. The driver is one of two
alternating amateurs , anU this time no
was Frederick Hronson , n howling swell.
William K. Vandcrbilt was the host ,
and his guests wcro mem
bers of his own family. The ladies wore
( raver clothing than is usually seen in the
street , but no moro so than coaching
tisnge permits. Thousands of staring
eyes watched the distinguished load as it
rolled up Fifth avenue , through Central
park , and thence over the country roads
ut a rapid pace. Photographers caught
the piiH.sinir show at several points.
The cow show has not had the fashion-
nblo countenance which had been given
to the dog show , though it was visited by
many mouish women , whoso wide-opened.

baby stare'saw ) for the first time that

of the practical duties of a milkmaid.
Mabel Wright IB one of the young beau
ties of pretentious society. She was ban
tered by a ccntlcmau of tier party on bur
declaration of dairy knowledge , and the
upshot was that slut won a box of glovus
on the wager that she could not milk a
cow.The amateur soldiers of the Now York
militia regiments , or ut least the three
organi/.ations favored by fashionable
recognition , have gained a transient
share of attention by giving exhibition
drills in their armories. The chappies
brush the minutest particle of dust from
their uniforms , burnish their trappings
until a sunbeam would slip up on the
mirfaco , and then march bravely before
an assemblage of invited guests. That
doesn't really seem a dangerous or dilli-
cull achievement , but the dear fellows
tire the best material at hand to make
heroes out of. and so the girls assume an
j air of amaxcd delight at these shows.
f "I do like to fool a man , " exclaimed
ono cciitlo fraud.
"Well , 1 don't , " replied her fair pal.
"And why not ? "
"Hecauso it is too easy. "
There is nothing much moro talked of
in society just now than the kissing of
Charles Coghlau and Airs. Langtry in
"Lady Clnncarty. " It is so deliberate , so
utterly oblivious of the big fiddle , so un
conscious of the base drum , that It has
all the meaning nnd earnestness of a kiss
in private life. It is not an exhibition i
kiss by any manner of means ; The rap
turous kissing that Kmma Abbot used to
bestow on Castle never stirred a hair on
husband YVolhcrcll's head , nor disturbed
the parting of a man in the audience.
The kissing of Mary Anderson was the
most transparent make believe in the
- world. When Clara Morris used to kiss
Charley Thorno in "Camillo" she would
take him on her knees before her , muss
his hair and devour him with loving
looks , dip down upon his face and kiss
lilm lingcringl. ? on his his intense
nmusomnnt. When Hignold was in the
country he awoke the town kissing Susan
when ho played "William. " The women
in the audience used to luliniro , but Susan
mi lie rod. Hignold was a wiry , red-
bearded man , who shaved twice \ \ week ,
nnd no oftener. He would powder the
stubble on his face till his complexion
was lovely , but poor Susan ! A section
of sand-paper could have hurt no worse.
When he got homo from sna In the play
nnd met busiin , she would lly into his
arms very much ( after the previous ox-
imrlo nco ) as thovictiru who was senten
ced in the inquisition | to undergo the vir
gin's kiss , knowing she had to , and was
going toget hurt. He would hold that
poor girl's head back , make rush , kiss
Loth eyes , root u second uuder her oil
car , and then kiss her straight in the
. mouth , and all the while this adjacent

taxing otl'hur cuticle like a nutmeggrater.
Hut this business of Coghlan's makes
the dude's collar too tight for him , and

or graces about him. All that a kias can

while the men. every mother's son of

selves In the windows , and are smirking
away for dear life. > Vell , now that it is
just the proper thins lor "ion to bn tall ,
they are improving on nature and build
ing themselves up to the desirable limit.
The way they do it is to have their shoes
made with neols more than commonly
high and then built up1 Inside at the back
to a still greater extent ; This has the
effect , while raising tho. wearer , of pitch
ing him forward at an ; khglb that looks
as though It must no very uncomfortable
indeed. Hut the Now York fashionable
doesn't care for a little thing of that
sort. Bless you , no. There is ono man
m particular who is making a .sensation
on Broadway in tho'-o days , partly
through his natural gifts as to hcighth
and partly because he has bein assisted
by his shoemaker to an extent miito be
yond compare. This specimen is a for
eigner , and is said to be of gentle birth.
In Doitit of fact , he is called a Laron. iie
is naturally over six fuot high , anil is a
line looking fellow of the brunette order.
But , not satisfied with his already advan
tageous proportions , ho has built himself
up enormously , and his gait thereby has
become the apex of awkwardness.
When a man ot genius sets out to bo
jovial he succeeds. I know a chap of
that sort who hail a heap of fun. Mrs.
Duncan Morgan gave an entertainment
called a fancy Gorman. With few ex
ceptions the guests wcro in character cos
tumes , without masks to be sure , but this
young man got tip n device that amused
him all the evening. To begin with , lie
had a three-legged stool riveted in the
seat of his trousers. The legs were nil
fittetl with hinges that , when ho stood
up , dropped Hat against his own , but
when he sat down tlioy fell into place ,
anil supported him as well as a three-
legged stool over supported a man. A
baud of some stout stull' was fastened
across his knees , so that when ho
sat down he could stretch his
legs two or three feot. Over his head ,
and resting upon it was a yoke , such as
French peasants wear to carry milk cans.
Thus rigged , the young follow sat down
on his three practicable wooden ami two
human legs , clasping his huntU on his
knees and throwing his arms out. Ho
was upholstered in green velvet till ho
was a spectacle , His arms were tufted.
A line soft seat was run in to go round
his waist on a belt and fastened to _ the
band between his knees. A plaited
llounco encircled him , and a beautifully
padded back ran from his waist up to the
yoke on his head. In the center of this was
a slit , through winch ho poked his head ,
and threw the yoke backon his shoulders.
Deep bullion fringe went down his
arms anil over the tlounco. When ho
stood up ho was an ungainly mass of
frills , fringes anil furbclous ; but when ho
threw up tlio yoke on his head , drew hi. '
noddle in like a turtle , bracetl his arm ;
in the proper position , and sat down , he
was as inviting an easy chair as you
would litul in a cabinetmaker's store. He
would select ! i quiet spot at the end of a
dance , s'riko his attitude and wait dovel-
opmonts. Down would drop some ex
hausted damsel. Once a fat dogwagor
nearly pressed the stull'ing out of linn ,
but ho contented himself by giving way
and making madam belioyo the rickety
old chair was coming to pieces with her.
But then came the delightful task of hold
ing lior pretty niece , ami our hero bo-
havetl like a chair witli a palpitating
back and a spring scat as long as ho
could. An attendant cayalior went oil'
to fetch an ice. The fair maid leaned
her head back so that her Grecian knot
of hair perforated the slit made for our
friend to see through , and siufl'ed his
mouth full of Titian red looks. What
should the arms of a chair do then but en
fold her ? Up came both of his hands antl
met over the Jack roses on her corsage.
Ma'am/.ello gave a despnratc yell antl
started out of that shady corner. At
that moment our friend sprang up.
pushed the yoKe oft'his matted brow , and
in the wild disorder of his crazy suit was
the lirst to ask her what the matter was.
To natch up a bottle of perfume and
dab tlu > stopper at one's upper lip , I believe -
liovo is a popular trick with many women.
I know I've seen lots of women do it ,
and ditl it myself till the other night
starting to see Lamrtry I did that trick
in a dark room and hava quit it altogether.
You see 1 ran back for a glove buttoner ,
and prowling over the dressing case
striick the glass stopper of u bottle of
Cherry Blossom , caught it up and
smooched it across my upper lip ami gave
two little dabs btdiiud my ours so my
neighbors should have a smell. Tisn't
Cherry Blossom after all , thought I , it's
the Wnito Uoso extract all the sumo.
And i pranced down and joined my
party. Wo had got into a car when
some ono said "Good mercy , what have
you got on your face ? "
"Tho usual umolmt of powder , I sup
pose , " I replied aggressively.
"Why , you've got a dark purple mous
tache. "
Great heavens ! it broke on mo in a
minute. That nasty bottle of scented
ink , that I myself hail left on the dress
ing bureau. There was no Langtry for
mo that night. Ninety-six washings only
weakened the stain. Sand-paper and
pumices stone have removed some of my
lip ( I always had enough ) but it's so dark
. now , ten days ago it happened , Unit
folks say to mo "you must stop using that
vaseline , you certainly are getting a
- moustache. * and just behind my ears are
two spots that look as if mortification
had taken place. However , 1 didn't
make a spectacle of myself as Maria did
the other night. Maria lias a little wisp
of hair the darkest shade of > brown-
growing on her head , but she has a lovely
switch that she just twists on as natural
as lifo anil twice tlio si/.o. She has been
disporting herself all the afternoon in
. dishabille with just her bang nicely
curled , and 114 hairs of hers in a
knob as bit : as a hickory nut in the back
i of her head. Some friends came in and
. ' Maria began dressing for the theatre.
She disappeared into the next room and
the t-wo ladies sitting with her wtmt down
to the drawing room , wheretheir , escorts
were waiting. Martha had 'slipped into
her ma's room , just combed out the
switch and twisted it in with the devoted
little band of hairs that had not deserted
her yet. Then she came back to her own
well-lighted apartment , put on her bon
net and the party started. The curtain
was down on tiie lirst act when she leaned
forward to speak to one of her friends.
The look of astonishment she received
told her something was wrong.
"Why Maria , your back hair ! why it's
its , " stammered the b.dy.
Maria's hand went up , supposing il
waa coming ; down.
No it waa snugly coiled and securely
- pinned.
"Is it wrong , " asked she.
"Why , it's milk white. "
Ma's $ "i switch of silver hair was
lf twisted in and skewered on to Maria's
head , which swam , as she contemplated
the situation. She half turned antl
caught the laughing regard of several in
tlio vicinity , ami it is a wonder the hair ;
10 that grow on her head did not turn white
to match ma's ' switch.

1HHD Astronomical Congress
lioulnnuor.t'M Campaign
1'ncls Notes ,
PAWS , May 1. [ Correspondence of
thu BKK. ] The astronomical congress
has commenced badly. It was , in
a general way , anticipated , that the lirst
thing it would take in hand before in
dulging in star-gazing , would be , to lay
the terrible east wind , which dries n
fellow into a mummy and compels even
blue ribbonists to wet their whistles. The
east wind is carrying oil' the rheumatic
with an earthquake heirs-
expectant can console themselves with
the reflection , it is a bad wind that blows
nobody good , It , all'ects thu Jinstitution ,
as sympathy , In the form of subscrip
tions , is airected by the prevailing
drought. ! lowers appear In due season
all the same ; birds build their nests as If
zephyrs dominated , so as the French pro
verb says , when the building trade is
brisk , all goes well.
It must have been the Chinese that
gave the French government the wrinkle
to invite the astronomers from various
parts of the world to assemble in Paris ,
nnd form a co-operatiro society to farm
the heavens. All the waste corners of
our planet having been appropriated , re
cently by France and Germany England
having philanthropically left them the
pickings , it is only natural the upper re
gions should become objects of envy.
Laplace and Biol attest that the Chinese ,
2,000 years before our era , had practi
cally utilised astronomy and made that
science n sort of government institution.
Mcropotamia was also renowned for its
astronomical lore and yet neither a Ce
lestial the most elegant of names at a
planetary congress , nor a dioldcau , has
been invited by Admiral Monehe/ .
The congress will not be occupied \vith
accepting Greenwich as the first merid
ian , as Iranco claims the maritime su
premacy for Paris , now about being
made a seaport , anil a sea-side resort.
The congress has for end , to allot a cer
tain portion of the firmament to each
nation's astronomer royal or demo
cratic , who is to take photos of the stars
in his section of space according to a
uniform process , and common appar
atuses. In due time all these celestial
takes will be sent to Paris , and by a
pieced together , and thus compare the
starry firmament , taken from several
points of the earth's surface. Then on
the occasion rf the centenary of the pres
ent congress and''may we be there to
see" another map , a new edition , shall
have been produced , and a comparison
instituted between the two pictures.
With a good photographic apparatus ,
and carefully prepared plates , so deli
cately sensitive as the latter , that it is ns
easy to take a likeness of a portion of the
sky as of the human face , or a running
animal. The image once taken it. is ex
amined by the microscope and the mi
cromcteri anil what appeare to bo only tv
star or a blotch , will bo found to be a
cluster of stars. It is the atom of cheese or
the drops of watermaguilied to unfold its
myriads of atomies. Take for example
the star , or group , Hercules ; to the naked
eye it appears simply a Uitl'uso spot , the
three thousandth part of a metre in di
ameter ; examined by the ordinary mag
nifying glass , it will reveal several hun
dred stars round a kernel ; looked at
through the microscops. th. ) same photo
will reveal thousands of stars. Anil to
think , there are stars whose light trav

The astronomers will bo entertained tea

cois. It is to be hoped the bills will in

not for the invasion of Germany , but for
the capture of his own non-commissioned
ollicers , has been divulged , olUcially.
The French , like every other army , and
perhaps more so , sutlers from a donrth of
non-commissioned officers , tine to their
dislike to re-engage. Indeed , had the
French army to rely on enlistment , on
volunteers , to be recruited , it would be a
skeleton and far below that of Great
Britain. Hence , a decided proficient
militarism is not popular in Franco.
General Boulauger maintains that the
army exists for the non-commissioned as
well as for the commissioned ollicer. and
that as the former is more in touch with
, the men , his condition merits a partial
According to the Boulangor project ,
henceforth the non-commissioned ollicers ,
after eight years' service , will have the
IVht to bo commissioned spceiallj by
the general commanding their corps
d'armeo. They can contract an engage
ment to remain till fifty years of age
under the ilitij , and this ro-cnuugcmciit
can even be made after returning to
civil lifo for three years following their
compulsory three years' active service.
This interim will allow time for the ex
' soldier to decide between a civil career
and thu ulvantages of a special and
privileged non-commissioned ollicer. In
this latter case ho can marry , live out
side barracks , and receive lodging
money ; if he commits a fault , among his
judges will sit two of his peers that's
a democratic innovation. His pay will
bo increased with his years of ser
vice ; so will his pension , which can
amount to 1,500 francs after forty-five
years under the flag. There are condi
tions for continuing the pension in case
the recipient leaves his wife u widow
and his children orphans. He can even
quit the army after his re-engagement
when ho pleases , receiving a pension pro
rate to his years of service , nay more , if
ho possesses the aptitude for certain de
partments of the civil service , ho will bo
nominated thereto as a matter of right.
This is a wet blanket on the civil servants
who threaten a strike , because ono minis
ter has ruled that all the clerks within
his jurisdiction must arrive punctually ,
must never remain idle , must work eight
instead of six hours daily , without any
extra remuneration , and"at the latter
tariff and for longer hours , whenever
necessary. Those clerks who dislike
this draconian code have only to resign ,
when General Boulanger will march in a
battalion to occupy their vacant stools.
Wondurs will never cease. Thirty-two
years ago Franco was ready to restore
thu kingdom of Poland ; the countrymen
of ICosciusco wore then the fashionable
sympathy. To-day they are as much for
gotten as Thiers or Gambcttu. Stranger
still , such are the necessities of politics ;

Franco ought to resolutely ailirm , that
the show is intended to glorify all that

for humanity , and depend on hersulf to
fill the places of the absentees. If the
policy be adopted of uniting at the cen

will share the fate of all the between two

There is nolreason why literature ought
not to have its chaperons , as well ns
Uuineu pigs , ahoddvito ami petroleum-
aires. A society lias been fornuitl to
combat the circumstances which keep
many youths to fortune anil fame tin
known. Any ono who writes a book has
only to send it along with six francs tea
a newly formed society , that undertakes
to have it read by three competent
judges. If the majority give a lavorablo
verdict , the production , whether a play ,
a charity sermon , a plan of campaign-
in the military sense understood , a philo
sophical treaty , or even a philanthropic
subject , will be read , on three franco
more being paid tlowu , in public and in
thn ampillica.tro of the Sarbouno. where
publishers will bo nllectionately invited
to attend. Already the now society has
received 1,500 , literary productions within
two days. All the pigeon holes in the
plliccs of the theatrical managers are be
ing cleaned out , and something like fur
niture vans stand at the doors. Publishers
are blessing themselves for the creation
of such an intellectual winowiugaml sift-
in ; ; machinery , and alienists promise to
allow their patients to indulge in Higland
Ilings , before the -safety-valve for
caciuthcs scribcndl. Henceforth , no one
able to make pothooks and hangers , can
complain that his genius has had no op
portunity. As it will exorcise the mind ,
the fad ought to curc' ' [ hypnotism. A
poem , as long as a riovel , by Paul
Toval or Ponson do Tbrrail , will bo as
carefully read as a monologue.
M. Kmilo Zola verilyfbcieves | ho has a
"call" to revolutionize the stage by the
naked exposure of all' the sores , vices
and depraved sins of humanity. There
was a time when the thuatne was accepted
as a place of amusement , .but since U has
taken to the role o'f instructing , of
charity-sermonizing , of illustrating im
aginary social theories.anil

fall back on music halls iilid circuses , or

This is called society to lifo , or natur
alism. Thu most remarkable feature
about the representation is the crowd in
the house to witness the scavenger litera
ture. It would pay bettor to hear Billy
llayden , the popular eifcus clown , read
his treatise , which ho is about to publish

BOSTON , May 11. [ Corrnpondnnco of
the BEE. ] Tno caprices of New England
weather have linally given up to the
sterner demands ol the season , ami wo
are at last allowed to breathe tlio balmy
air of spring. These bright days have
been a long time coming , and now that
they are here everybody is prepared to
make the most of them. The rapidity
with winch Boston packed away her
cloaks and furs ami donned a fresh
spring suit , is astonishing. Balls , operas
and afternoon teas are thiuirs of thu
past , ami the weather classes are getting
ready for the seaside or mountains , or
they are planning their lirst yatching
cruise. Every young man or boy be
longs to a base ball nine or a bicycle club ,
or pet haps a lacrosse team , and each one
is enthusiastic over the merits of his par
ticular pastime. Every clerk in the city
is happily looking forward to his "two
weeks oil' , " when ho can go on that
little picnic excursion into thu country
with thu damsel of his choice. The hardy
laborer sees happy , visions of cool even
ings at City Point , or , perhaps a happy
afternoon trip to Nautasket beach on the
steamer Pilgrim. The student , and Bos
ton is full of them , is just beginning to
"grind" for his final examinations , and
in his loasure moments , which are at
present very few , ho dreams of the bliss
ful times when those examinations shall
have passed , when , as a free ami happy
man , lie can bo bttsklmr on tlio deck of a
cat boat oil'some old coast town , or take
a summer's tramp over tlio classic .roads
of Europe. Nature , too. is not behind in
heralding the approach of spring , as the
verdant lawns ami budding elms of our
suburbs give ample evidence.
One of the most important events of
this most delightful period , an event
which the average citi/.cn counts nearly
equal to the opening of the baseball sea
son , is the visit of her Hawaiian majesty
Queen Kupiolam. The authorities hero
arc doing all they can to make the visit a
pleasant one , and tier majesty seems to
bo very well pleased with her reception.
The queen anil her suite are accommo
dated at the Parker house in the britlal
apartments , which have been from time
to time irraccd by the presence of Patti ,
Bernhardt and DC Ltissan. Although
these rooms are not intended to bear
comparison with thu princely halls of
the "New Residence" at Munich , they
are considered elaborate enough
for the entertainment of roy
alty in democratic America. On
arriving at Parker's yesterday morn
ing the royal party was given a break-
last by the mayor of Boston. The ban
quet hall was beautifully decorated by
Horist Galvm , and Baldwin's famous
cadet band was on hand with a charm
ing musical program. After the invited
guests were seated the royal party en
tered tiic hall. The queen wa.s escorted
by Mayor O'Brien , Princess Lilinokalani
by Governor Ames , while Mrs. O'Brien
ami Mrs. Ames were accom
panied by General lankca and
General Dominis of the queen's suite.
After the breakfast came speeches ,
music and introductions , and the morn
ing passed pleasantly away. Last even
ing the royal party occupied Manager
Stetson's private box at the Globe , and
witnessed the performance of
gore. "
To-day the Hawaiin chief will give a
reception m Charleston , which will bo
followed by an excursion to the public in
stitutions in and about Boston harbor.
On Thurday the queen will visit Wellesley -
ley college and the girls there , are preparing -
paring to give her a rousing reception.
On her return to Boston Governor Ames
will give a reception in her honor at his
palatial residence on Back bay. A grand
public reception in Mechanics' hall on
Thursday evening , will end the pro
The queen's v'isit to Boston has not
only benelittod the city , but the country
in general. It would bo inconsistent with
our principles to try to extend our inllu-
abroad in any other way than by
such fiicmlly relations as these , and in
having given the Hawaiian queen such a
hearty welcome , Boston has added an
other bond of friendship ami confidence
between the Hawaiian group and the
United States. Even now a largo part of
the trade of these islands comes to this
country , and we should so keep and ex
tend it that in case of international hos
tilities these islands would exert an in
fluence friendly to our interests.
Tlio grand opera season has passed
away ami witli it has departed from the
Italian opera stage in tins country that
queen of prima donnas , Mine. Adilina
Patti-Nicolini. Wo may or may not believe
tlio statement which has been .so glaringly
advertised that Americans will never
again hear Patti in grand
opera. Even prima donnas have
been known , within the mcrnorv of man ,
to make multitudinous "farewell tours , "
some of them having gone so far as to
in'ike a "positively last farewell tour , "
which rather tcntls to lead the innocent
publio to inquire how many professional
farewells are in really good form. Bui
say what yon will about a gold hunting
management , for which the artist is in
no wise responsible , "La Diva" Patti
stands without a peer in the world. Her
history is an interesting ono. She was
born away oft1 in Spain , but spent most
of her yotiiic girlhood on the streets of
Nsw York ; a brown , saucy little waif ,
with i apparently : no better future before
her thai tlfat of the commonest urchin. Even as u girl , among
such unfavorable circumstances , she
she was always the jolly and lighthearted -
hearted Adclina that she is to-day , with
her buoyant fipirits. Her career as a
singer was begun in Mr. Bcechcr's Sun
day-school room , and in a short time she
was traveling about the country , though
not in her own car as she does now ,
singing In concert under the manage
ment of her brother-in-law , Maurice
Strakosch. Her success as a jubilee
singer was doubtful oven then , audit was
a great question in the mind of Mr.
Strakosch whether the youpg voice
would ever develop into a rich and
golden soprano. Besides , if she over did
learn to sing , people said she couldn't
act. She was nervous and dillidcnt , ns
beginners generally are. But thu whole
world knows that this doubt dldn t last
long. It seems ahsurh to think that
Patti ever appeared shy or awkward ,
she who has so long been recognized as
the very embodiment of self-possession ,
of careless , yet artistic gracufulncss.
Patti's tirst appearance in London
marked a decisive clmngo of fortune.
English audiences praised her acting as
well ns her singing. The Times and
other journals lauded her to the skies.
This set the ball n-rolling and in n short
time the bare-footed New York roysterer
was so well established in thuhautij voice
of London that slm secured a real mar
quis for a husband. She was received
into court circles at every capital in Eu
rope as well ns at London , and her patli
was literally paved with roses. But those
were the days of her primo.nnd since she
left the Marquis do Caux anil
married Nicolini , English aristoc
racy has seen tit to turn ur
its nose. . But never mind I Those
things arc all passed now , and thu ccle

Whether she goes on the stage agfiin

incnt of Mr. Henry K. Abbey , ia : i ques
tion. If she leaves the stujjo she will
ave to refuse $3,000 n nlght for the nao

The most important chnngo of bill at
the theatres this week is nt llio museum ,
where Mr. Richard Mansliold gives the
first performance , on any stage , of "Dr.
Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. " Any ono who
liiis road this wonderful piece of imagina
tion by Mr. Uoburt Louis Stovensou can
easily imagine what interest must center
around its being played by such a brilliant
and talented young artist as Mr. Mans-
field. It will bo remembered that the dual
nature of "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. llydo"
is the main 'point of the work. Dr.
Jekyll , who is represented ns a good-
natured and highly Intelligent gunlle-
nan , is nblo by the help of a powerful
Irug , to change Ins nature to Dr. Hyde ,
who is a downright bloodthirsty and
murderous naturo. The play is of a
rluistly nature , but the difficult parts and
jiiick changes of thu loading character
are so well brought out by Mr. Mans
field , that it appears on thn stage as a de
cided work of art. Mr. Mansliold'.s suc
cess in the play is assured.
