THE SOCIAL SWIM.
Bishop F. D. Huntington, in the October
Torum, describes fashionable society "as a
something too formal lor an institution, too
irregular for an organization, too vital for a
machine, too heartless for a fraternity, too
lawless for a school, too decent for a mas
querade, with too much lying lor a bureau,
and too many passions for a pageant. There
are the competitions, matches, risks, calcu
lations of a perilons game, the interchanges
of an imponderable, immaterial commerce,
musical voices lrom inharmonious breasts,
spiteful courtesies, magnificent meannesses.
There are songs of peace, flying arrows ot
malice and revenge, bonds and fragments ol
friendships, charming veils over hidden
horrors, laughter rippling over dark depth's
of silent agony.
One has only to reflect a moment how con
siderable a section of the lives of many men
and more women these activities occupy,
what capacities they include, what forces
they engage, the interplay between life and
life, the issues and destiny of character, the
angnst responsibilitv. to comprehend that
'society, even in this limited sense, is a
stndy for the wisest minds."
She is not dead, and sbe Is not wed!

The world is filled with folly and sin.
And Love must cling wbere it can, X say;
For Beauty it easy enough to win,
But one isn't loved every day.
And I think, in the lives of most women and
There's a moment when all would go smooth
If only the dead could find out whnn
To come back and be forgiven.

ACADEUT OF MUSIO..
Kenned) 's Bright Lights
The above are the theatrical attractions for
It is not at all likely that we shall see again
this season so perfect a performance In every
way as "Twelfth Night" in the hands or Mhs
Marie Wainurlght and ber company. In t'ie
first place there is a personal charm about Miss
Wainwright'a Viola and an artistic finish about
all she does in tbat rarely romantic character
that is not often found nowadas. We can
hardly measure the merit of this Fi'olo' now.
Suffice it to say that Miss Wainwnght will be
most welcome in tbat sweet guise whenever sbe
comes this way. Unlike so many of our lead
ing actors. Miss Wainwright has had the
wisdom to gather about her none but artists.
So we have an even performance, and but little
injustice to tbe great master's work. Nobody
can ask for a better Sir Toby than Mr. Owen
bas giveu us; lew will desire a richer
rendering or Malvolio than Mr. Barton
Hills. Acomel), m'eir-witted Maria comes
naturally from Louise Muldener whose
powers iu comedy should bring her a surfeit or
honors someday. With nobody in tbe cast
Call We boneStlT Onarrpl. l!nm-rnrolatlina tit-i,
really due to tbe whole band of plaers,and the
audiences that have been wise euougu to see
.ucu, x mum, wm permit uie to say that tbey
present those cougratulatloua.
In the performance of Shakespeare's plays,
I bold that the grandeur of the story and the
immortal lines do not benefit by scrubby
scenery, fuU of anachronisms and glaring In
congruities, for a background. Nur is it an
excuse for costumes mean, tawdry and untrue
to the time and locality of the play to say that
tbe almost divine poetry of Shakespeare needs
o assistance from milliner and tailor. In
spite of Shakespeare's own assertion that
'good wine needs no bush," I think it looks
better and tastes bettpr if the circumstances
are appropriate; a thin glass suits our modern
lips better than a thick one, and a little ice in
tbe pail is not tu be laughed at.
Hence "1 well tb Night" approaches an ideal
deliverance in this case, because the costumes
are rich and true to the era of the play and as
true in local color as Sbakerpiare intended
and because the scenery is a delight to the ejes
and an aid to the understanding of the story.
What the fate of "The United States Mail"
will be depends upon sevc events. As it is
it is a farce comedy tbat has achieved success
and one thst might be made a still greater suc
cess with little trouble to the author and little
expense. At this writing nothing is really set
tled about the future of tbe play, further than
that It goes to Wheeling next w eek and prob
ably to other towns near Pittsburg. If Mr.
Jeuks were in a position to command the order
ing ot the play from top to bottom with $1,000
or (2,000 to spend; If a manager of experience
bad Lharge of the advance work, and a firm
di-clpllnarian took hold or the company, manv
are or the opinion that "The U. S. Mail would
be a great money maker.
Tbe company needs a new sonbrette. Miss
Kate Davis needs more opportunities to reveal
her abilities, and another comedian would in
crease tbe strength of tbe jU amazingly. It
will be a great pity If Mr. Jeuks clever work
eoes to tbe walL It made a great deal of money
at the Bijou.
Pittsbukp Is honored by the first appear
ance npon the same stage of Madam Modjeska
and Edwin Booth at tbe Grand Opera Houfe
tbls week. Tbeir 'eatnn commences here nn
Monday. Tbe repertoire is a brilliant one,
and as may be seen below, admits of the dis
play of both actors' great talents and ver-atil-ity.
Thtt say that "My Aunt Bridget," which
will be seen at the Bijou Tbeater this week bas
been greatly strengthened since it was last
seen In this city. The cast gives evidence of
tbe truth of this assertion. It Ig unusually
strong and contains such musical comedy
favorites as George W. Monroe, Jobn C Rice.
Bernard Dyllyn. Jobn J. Raffeal. of Mi Canll
Opera Company; W. A. Mack, James Caran
augb, Victor Good. Gus Williams, the West
minster Madngal Bojs, Catherine Lingard, of
the "Little Tycoon" Opera Compam; Mrs. E.
M. Post. Catherine Gerald, Lena Saffi, Nellie
Rosebud ("Little Rosebud"), CarP.ua Baffl.
tbe Neapolitan Trio, and Miss Lena Mer
vtlle. The play is the work of Mr. Scotc
Marble, and is doubtless tbe best tlilntr be has
written. Tbe main chai aiter of Aunt Bridget,
which is taken by Georea W. Monroe, repre
sents a somewhat exaggerated tjpe or an isr
norantlnsu woman. The next character ot
importance Is that of -P. Alton McVeigh, who
came over to this country with a fortune, which
he rapidly squai drred, but in the meantime
bad been surrounded with rather aristocratic
acquaintances, from whom be tries to conceal
the fact tbat be is poor and tbat he has to teach
a dancing school. He bas a maiden aunt in
Ireland who be understands is rich, anu be
Induces ber to come to this country, that he
might benefit by some of her wealth. She, ar
rive at a rather unexpected moment and
shocks her nephew's fnuids by ber lack of re
finement, Mr. Monroe bas always been able to
make bis audiences la agb till tbey are tired.
Mr. Rice is equally good as tbe nephew.
Lena Merrille brings tbe brightness
tbat was last shown In "The
"Oolah"tothepaftot Polly Wider, and one
of tbe hits of tbe pieces U ad to be her sink
ing of the new ong "iou Should Hear Her
Whistling," a take-off on Mrs. Shaw. Mist
Catherine Lingard comes from comic opera to
comedy with great success it is Said, and sbe
bas won gulden opinions for her voice. Tbe
rest of the compaii) should be iu keeping with
the stars, and the Westminster Madrigal Buvj
and tbe Neapolitan two are higbl) spoken of.
Tbe costumes are said to be gorgeous and con
stantly cuanginj. Of mnsic there Is plenty
and all of it is declared to be new. There will
be a matinee on Tuesday, G. A. R. Day.
It Is hardly necessary in referring to the
Grand Opera House's programme for this
week to say more than that Mr. Edwin Booth
and Madame Modjeska mate their first ap
pearance there on Monday evening in "Tbe Mer
chant of Venice." The greatest actor America
bas produced is consotted worthily with the
great actress who bas made this country her
borne. It is a dramatic event of great magni
tude and unique. Tbe company supporting
tbe stars is declared to be excellent, and the
setting of the plajs it is hoped will be worthy.
Tbe repertoire is arranged as follows: Monday.
"The Merchant of Venice," Mr. Booth,
BKylack; Mme. Modjeska. Portia. Tuesday
aud Thursday, "Hamlet," Mr. Booth, Hamlet;

Colonel Smith during the week reviewed a
copy of tbe inspections of tbe Eighteenth

fair In evory way, and to a great extent flatter
ing to tbe different companies. Tbe highest
possible general average Is BO, and the stand
ings of tbe different organizations on this basis
are: Company C. fc9; Company G, 19.7: Com
pany 1, 68: Company A, 67: Company D,S6; Com
pany K, 63.6; Company 11, 57; Company F, 60,
and Company B. 49.5. On the figureo! efficiency
tbe averages run pretty much tbe same, the
percantageof attendance present being 97.5.
The lowest figures were given on the schools of
the soldier, company and battalion, those of
tbe ceremonies, discipline and condition of
company property' being exceptionally high.
The report, as far as it goes, shows a marked
improvement in tbe regiment In many respects
over tbe report of last year, but also points out
considerable room fur attention right down Ja
the companies themselves by the line officers.
