Near MrtdiBon a dike broke this after
noon and a wall of water rushed through.
Three women, endpnvorlng to escape, were

At -ft tonight a small steamboat, with a
powerful propeller, was secured and
hastily prepared for a trip to Black TVal
nut to rescue the people Imperilled there.
As the yacht went out Into the current It
at once begin to make headway and a
cheer of encouragement went up from the
spectators. The moonlight clearly Illumi
nates the river tonight and floating logs
and other debris can be easily seen and
avoided, so tho steamer should have no
difficulty In reaching Black Walnut with
little delay. The boat Is low enough to
pass under the Bellefontalne bridge, and
unleKs some accident happens there is no
reason why the marooned refugees should
not bo rescued before daylight.

AT THE PLAYHOUSES
Ferris Summer Mark umiHn ill the
The well known melodrama based on th
equally well known nove: of the rame ntme,
"Monte Crlsto," was given last evening at
the Boyd theater as the opening bill of
the week by the Ferris Summer Stock com
pany. The piece Is staged with much care,
and some effort at selection Is noticeable
In the assignment of parts. It Is only na
tural In such an organization that occasion
ally a round peg must be asked to assume
a square hole temporarily, und if the de
tail of the performance was not all it
should be. It may be churged to tho fact
that every member is not capable of doing
everything well. It is certain that each has
the merit ot honestly trying. Some of them
succeed admirably well. This is particu
larly true of the Caderousso ot John Mylie.
It la not much of a part, but Is very essen
tial to the action of the play, just as it was
to die story, and Mr. Mylie gives a very
careful and Intelligent expression to It,
avoiding any appearance ot overacting, and
making his performance one of the gems
of the evening so far as a lilt of character
work goes. Dell Henderson makes his
Nolrtler very nearly what one might con
reive the real man to have been. Edmond
Dantes falls naturally to Mr. Slddons, who
has already proved himself a versatile and
In many ways capable actor. His creation
of the part will not win him any Immortal
fame, but It will add to the opinion already
formed of him as a man who will conscien
tiously endeavor to give Intelligent rendi
tion to any role he may undertake, and
who, If he be not really great. Is far from
being a failure. MIhs Pavey hasn't much to
do as Mercedes.but does that little well.
Mary Hill makes Albert a charming youpg
fellow. Dollle Davis wears a handsome
gown well in her appearance as the
daughter of Danglars, and there her serv
ice to the play ends. Carl Caldwell as
Villefort, Harry Barlow aa Danglars and
Hugh Mackaye as Fernando seem to have
no conception of what is required of them
on the stage. A few hours with the novel
might give each a better idea of his char
acter. The piece is excellently staged, and
was given last night smoothly and satis
factorily. The customary big audience was

BEAUTY AS A SIGN OF GRACE
Cental and Spiritual Side of Man Are
Involved In Eithetio.
WHAT ART SHOULD BE CULTIVATED MORE
Chancellor Andrews' Rnccalaarente
Sermon to the Graduating (Ins
f 'the Inlverslty of
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, June 7.-(8peclal Telegram.)
Chancellor E. Benjamin Andrew delivered
the baccalaureate sermon to the graduating
class of the University of Nebraska today.
Ilia theme was "Beauty" and he found his
text In Psalms xc. 17: "Let the beauty of
Jehovah our God ba upon us." Chancellor
Andrews argued that both beauty and the
capacity for enjoying beauty spring from
mental and spiritual conditions, rather than
from physical, and that the direct propor
tion to the mental and spiritual advance of
man his capacity for the enjoyment of th
beautiful Is increased and he is increased
in beauty himself. In developing this line
of thought he said:
Tho sense of beauty Is an endowment of
all men, we find it even In savages. In
nearly all it haa some degree of cultivation.
Moreover, we all instinctively feel that tt
ought to be cultivated, that to be a person
of taste Is a legitimate, desirable, and val
uable attainment. It is a remarkable fact
that this ia the sole purely natural pro
pensity which can be cultivated without
limit and not do the person the slightest
moral harm. Of no form ot appetite can
this be said. Appetite, too, in natural
and has to be given a certain scope in our
life, yet we have not a single appetite
which does not carry with it a positive
danger; and most of us are well aware
how easy It Is to be swept off our feet by
the power of one of the lower lmpulseNL
which, after all, we cannot eradicate and
ought not to eradicate. The love of beauty
Is not a source of evil in any such sense
as that. Undoubtedly this part of our
nature too can be employed and developed
In a way to Induce unfortunate moral re
sults, hut If so the evil must come from
downright abuse of the esthetic sense, and
cannot arise from the mere exercise of
that sense. In itself It Is always helpful
and never noxious to ethlcul well-being
Our esthetic nature can lead us astray
only in the same way as our religious na
Application of the Argument.
Ills application of his theme is couched
in the following language:
The thought which we have been re
viewing of the esthetic In its various
manifestations as Just the radiance of the
moral, has both its personal lesson and
its social lesson. The personal lesson is
that . In the relation enounced we may
find a truo-test of esthetic cultivation as
real or nominal, as deep or merely super
ficial. Real esthetic cultivation wlif be
in its possessor . a moral force, and any
esthetic sensibility or power which doos
not thus make for righteousness Is either
fraudulent or as yet desperately feeble.
The beautiful is as yet Homing for us if it
does not move and shore us to the good.
If any ot us are Interested in nrt. if we
are touched by beauty and are not affected
oy me spirituality or it, we are aa yet
but wretcned smatterera in this rietmrtmant
of truth. Real esthetic cultivation in
volves Insight, enabling you to read the
hieroglyphics of beauty as well as its plain
script. Real esthetic consecration is a
virtue and a grace;.
The social Jesaoh which the truth of the
hour Inculcates is that no man or woman or
community or nation can do too mufh to
propagate among the people a love for
true art. Just as the art work in our pub
lic schools is jeered by many as a fad,
so, no doubt, many think of every agency
for teaching art as quite without social
significance or function, an extra elegance
for tho wealthy and the leisurely, meant
solely for such as would themselves enoy
life, but have no wish to enrich, purify" or
strengthen the life of society at large.
There could hardly be a greater miscon
ception, ine spread or esthetic taste
among the citizens is a vast public benefit
worthy the patronage of every patriot.
Next after that which ministers to the
mere necessities of life, no expenditure of
capital is of greater social utility than
that which sets before the people's eyes or
brings- to people's ears prominent crea-

periods In mankind's hlstorv whn ti, i.,
arts have reached their choicest bloom.
imvo Dtien precisely tne periods of special
moral degeneracy. Were this true in the
sense usually meant by those who pro
pound the . statement, .it would give the
lie to nearly every proposition advanced
this hour. But It is not true In that sense,
limes of rank moral decline in human
story are usually times of congested wealth
wiibii moneys are uivisnea in art commis
sions and when artists of rme nri ni,.
as distinct from artists of originality, mill-
limy ana mnve. rraxitlles and his like
will be in their Studios then, thronged bv
rich nobodies with gold galore to pl.ij'c
heavy commissions. Ask for Phldlax cr
any creator, you will bo told, "Oh, that
virtuoso died a hundred years ago." f ho
artists of finish, marking times of moral
deoadenco, come after the ereators and
stand upon their shoulders. The creators
lived in the good old times, before virtues
had given way. and the Immortal emm.,,
were able to become such because in thel.-
umes real an spirit was rife and multi
tudes who never attained fame were craut
ing as bsst they could.
I deem this esthetlo education of the
people one of the most promising unused
moral resources wnirn society now has in
reserve. Many moral evils compass our
modern communities about. The outlook
for progress is in various ways discour
aging enough. At some points our course
is retrograde. Thinking of the human
race, Its vices and its tendencies In our
time, the SHge queries to himself oftener
than he likes to say It aloud.

In not a few of Its worst phases our e
exactly matches that which preceded tho
dissolution of the Roman empire. Many
thoughtful persons are at this moment In
terror of some signal social paroxysm that
shall end our age and open another of we
know not what order. And the paroxysm
may como. The Power over us may please
again to purify the air by a cyclone or tj
heave up continents of rich loam by an
earthquake. But there In one Incalculable
dl.fcrence between the civilised society of
today and that of the ancient world when
about to be dissolved. We have diffused
education and they had not. The art power
and the consequent moral power nf our
education we have as yet hardly begun to
apply. In most cltlsens. young or old, tho
art sense Is still dormant Duly awakened,
developed, trained and directed, it will be
an Incalculable force for virtue.
