The program for the season's Chau
tauqua at Crete has some unusual
features. Miss Olaf Krarer, the lady
from Greenland, only three feet and
four Inches high and weighing; 100
pounds, will speak on "The domestic
life of the Esquimaux women." The
prospectus states that she will lecture
In the fur robes of the frozen north.
If it be hot, let us hope she will not
lecture on "The domestic life of the
Esquimaux women" In her everyday
clothes. She might appear before the
audience In costume for a moment
just to show ,how her fur wrapper
hangs and fits, but she is too little
for a big audience to keep in furs on
a July day. No doubt Mademoiselle
OUf has a dimity dress with big
sleeves and a gored skirt or a shirt
waist with a black skirt. In which case
1, will be quite as interesting for the
Chautauqua part of the Nineteenth
century to see how the Fifth century
looks in the Nineteenth's clothes as
to see It dissolving In the dress pre
scribed by the arctic zone.
Prof. Louis Favour, electrical magi
cian, who plays electrical jokes, is a
second attraction, a little unusual for
a Chautauqua assembly. The Chau
tauqua people are '"perfectly wild." as
Mrs. Glibb says about Dawnte. the
Elizabethan Age and Green's "His
tory ,of the English People." For
recreation I have sever seen them take;
anything tighter than "Westward Ho"
or "HypatU." Charles Kiagsley is to
the "circles" -what Boll Smith Russell
or Joseph Jefferson are to certain;
strict church members. They conoid?
er and teach the young, who, through
bo fault of their own, are restricted
to them for immediate -ancestry, that
Joseph Jefferson and Sol Smith Rus
sell, although they are actors, still
have moral lessons of value to Impart
and that they would better go to see
them. Therefore is It strange to see
the ".hippodrome numbers that the
Chautauqua has introduced for the
season of ISM.
Not that any of the serious, in
structive features are left out. The
Rev. J. D. Stewart will lecture on Bib
lical topics as heretofore, the Rev.
Wlllard Scott will provide ecclesiasti
cal facetiae, and W. J. Bryan will give
these clouds a sliver lining by a dis
cussion of Bimetallism. Prof. Fossler
has a lecture on Gedanken perlen
deutscher lltteratur which will not be
a chariot race.
Some of the photogravures that ac
company the program are worse than
the usual lot of newspaper pictures.
Mrs. Will Owen Jones looks a very
large, dogmatic, new woman, Mrs. Pe
attle, wizened, and squinting, Mr. W.
R. Dawes is the image of Billy Ker
saaez as to a speaking feature. Mrs.
Field looks like someone else, but I
can't "place" her. These four people
have a strong case of libel against the
.publishers of the program, if a libel
case Is ever strong. The programs go
all over the state and as people who
have read and heard of these well
known people gaze on what is said
to be their likenesses they may say
"Gracious! Is that the way they look?
I do not care to see them as much as I
Seriously the program is a rare one
and aH who can go and do not are
like those people the .parable tells
about who were Invited to a feast and
seat word that they must grub in the
dirt Instead.
The death of Frank Mayo in the
train on his way to Omaha to play
Ms last engagement of the season
there removes the second of the three
old actors ob the American stage, for
whom all theatre goers have a per
sonal affection. William Warren,
Frank Mayo and Joseph Jefferson were
oM men several years ago, but they
belong to the newest school of acting.
Their methods are those of the im
prcssioalst. They let the trivial go,
except la so far as It is the result of
character, and show only the essential
features of a. character, forming for
fifty years. They show It by an art
so subtle, so perfect It seems no art at
all. The individual in the audience Is
delighted by faint perfumes, Indi
cations so slight that he is sure no
one but himself has perceived them.
Self revelation is a dangerous thing If
the actor lacks worth. In the case
of .Booth, the master, and the three
aforementioned actors, they never
played without making devoted friends
of all in the audience that deserved
their comradeship. William Warren
played for thirty years or more In the
Boston museum. When he died, some
years ago, all Boston mourned the loss
of a man worthy of reverence and
Frank Mayo was acquainted with
grief and disappointment, but he did
not presume upon his experiences. We
love him for his goodness and modesty
that no role could conceal, though
"Pudd'nhead Wilson" expressed it bet
ter than anything else he ever played.
When Joe Jefferson's time comes, hap
pily there is no reason to fear it may
be soon, the last of the three old men
will have gone. Clay Clement and
Richard MaasSeld are In the same line
of descent. "With the legacies of their
predecessors and their self-made for
tune they will probably attain a higher
'point "than they did. But when they
take leave of their generation regret
cannot be sharper than- we feel for
Frank Mayo.
- A citizen of Rulo says there Is but
one gold bug In the place and he is a
banker and an Englishman. It is no
ticeable that bankers assume a pon
derous and portentous tone when they
speak of the silver fallacy. They all
see money piled up around them
some of them do they hear It ring,
they heft it, and the Intimacy with the
medium of exchange deceives them
into believing themselves doctors of
finance. It is a far cry, nevertheless,
from the piles of gold and silver in the
cage or the vaults to the solution of
the problems of political- economy.
If the St. Louis convention declares
for gold unreservedly and the free sil
ver jnen get control of the Chicago
convention, the names of democrat
and republican will mean very little in
the coming campaign. The issue Is
great enough to make a democratic
goldbug low-tariff man vote for Mc
Klnle and the party at the opposite
pole vote for Horace Boies or W. J.
Bryan. The terms democrat and re
publican have not meant much, but
"in" and "out" since the war. But it
takes a cyclone to loosen the hold some
people have on a name and its associa
tions and supposed meaning. The cy
