"Only once," he said the other day, 'during my long stay at the White House did I see the late president In an ettl- tude that was not dignified, but It was only for an Instant. We were In a room In the White Housa which opened onto delegation of southern men and was waiting near the door leading to the bal cony for the delegation to draw up in front Besides the president there were in the room two army officers, Mrs. Mc Klnley and myself. 'Presently we heard the band that was leading the delegation. Mr. McKlnley threw back hla shoulders, stood erect and placed his hand upon his breast between the buttons of his frock coat and was ready to step out at a slgnsl to be given him by one of the army officers when all was ready.

Mr. sothern has dons one service; he has eliminated Tinker Sly, and the absurdity of the opening scenes of the drama aa or iginally produced. It might have been Jolly good tun In Shakespeare's day for a noble lord to pick up from his sleep In the ditch a drunken tinker, take htm borne, deck him In fine linen, provide him with at least the semblance of wife, and then have enacted a play for his amusement At present the noble lord would la all likelihood be antlci pated by the watchful policeman, and Christopher Biy would find his rest at the station house. In sny event, the scenes that have to do with him are In no sense needed for the action of the farce, and so have been done away with, hat Mr. Sothern can not get rid of Is the fact that what remains of the original I enacted for the sport of his lordsnlii who was amusing himself and his retinue at the expense of besotted Kit "Taming of the Shrew" at Its best Is a rough and tumble farce, full of absurdities, proceed ing with much noise and commotion, and showing but little of genuine beauty. either In comedy or philosophy. Were It not for Kate's counsel to wives, beauti fully spoken by Miss Marlowe last even ing, It would be all but aimless. And It will be a really brave man who will go home to the partner of hla life and Insist on thst platform being adopted. Not In these days of militancy! But the play is sanctified to some ex tent by tradition; it Is the one avowed farce by Its great author, and It has been played by any number of clever and gifted people, and perhaps will continue to be so played, because of Its laughter, producing qualities. It haa such ele ments aa to arouse light merriment, and with no appeal to deeper sentlmegt. It affords an evening of amusement un broken by problems of conduct, personal or otherwise. , , . Mr. Bothers makes his Petruehlo ram bunctious from the word go; hit Intro duction to Hortenste, Gremlo and Lucen tio might stamp him as a very braggart. so frankly does hs announce that hla ad vent In Padua but presages his wedding with a wealthy wife, and she may be foul and shrewish aa a number of feminine undesirables he freely mentions, save that he takes his audience Into hla confidence at times, and by a twinkle of his eys or a nod of his head gives as surance that he la all right, and Is ant the arrant blusterer he appears. And having pitched his performance In this key, he doesn't relax an Instant to ths very end, save in those asidee that make It certain that when Katharine has been properly "tamed," the will find aa de voted and dutiful a spouse as sver blessed woman's life; when Katherlne has bid den the other wives to place their hands under their husband's feet, Petruchlo sets her foot on his hand, to show how per fect is the partnership. This It the most graceful and about the only gracious thing Sothern'a Petruchlo does. Miss Marlowe, whose name It more closely associated with characters any thing but shrewish; the ardent Juliet; the gentle, wise and patient Portia, the ten der Rosalind, the loving Viola, the duti ful and devoted Ophelia the list Is as long almost as the catalogue of the Grecian thlps-ahs finds Katherlne some thing of a problem; at times It seems aa if she wanted to stop long enough to have a good laugh with the folks out In front over her efforts to appear suffi ciently Ill-tempered and Intractable. Now snd again she shows a rare burst of temper. Just the sign that she was not called In vain "Kate the cursed," but when a chance Is offered sha lets the sweet laughter hare its sway and shows that smile that so becomes her. She Is far more a source of deligbt as Ksth erlne then Sothern la as Petruchlo. Of the company and staging of the play much might be written, and all In praise. Mr. Bothera haa shown excellent Judg ment in his plsnnlng of the eeenea aad action, managing to keep the current moving swiftly and providing a reason able setting for the Incidents of Its prog ress, to that It haa the advantage of continuity at least Hla company It made up at excellent actors, and the humor of the piece It greatly and agreeably heightened by the good will wltb which all enter into Ite enactment The Boyd waa filled last night by aa assemblage such ss shows the esteem la which the stsrs are held, and cu rials calls at the end of each act with much anfeigned merriment during the progrsss of the play, must have convinced the actors that their efforts were not In vain.

The sketch is one of unusual Interest, as It gives a vivid picture of California life during the early das. The lonely wife, who falls teinitorarily in love with the cwapci circus rldor and finally discovers that she lows her husband. Is a pathetic character.
