I sent two notes to posted be.
And each was to a different "She."
Bnt when in turn came their replies,
In wrathful mood I wiped my eyes.
The one from my sweet lore was cold.
And merely said: "Iflamold,
Compared to her I hear your name
Bo often conrled with what shame
Is that to me! You're older still.
Yet once I'd almost said I wilL'
Goodby, sir." Sick at heart. I tore
The other open. Then I swore
By all the powers I would not be
Bound for those words to snch as she.
You see. a maid 1 hated quite
Had sent a note, and begged some night
That I would just run o'er a play
She'd written. I, who knew her way,
Had, in the curtcst words I knew,
Said that "the subject wouldn't do
'Twas quite too old;" and so declined
The leisure for the task to find.
Ana to this girl designinc thing!
I'd sent my letter,- offering
Jly hand and heart. Ah, -woo is me!
The she I most don't want is she.

The above are the theatrical attractions for
The week at the theaters has been un
eventful. There was a good deal on the
bills that was "stale, flat and unprofitable."
The outlook is better for the coming week.
There has been a good bit of gossip about
Lillian Russell in the Pittsburg papers dur
ing the week. Those interested in the sub
ject will probably find the following, from
the Black Cat, worthy of attention:
I hear the gruesome rumor that our great,
our only, our rosy, our large Lillian Russel), Is
to tumble heels over bead for the third time
into the sea of matrimony. While Harry Bra
ham sits on the grave-stone ahove his dead
memories, and fiddles a burial hymn, and while
the talented Solomon composes sad measures
to commemorate the vanished joys of years
that have fled, a young and wealthy man named
Banford, who has long adored, with the rest of
ue, the unusual attractions of the radiant song
stress, steps in and places the glittering circlet
of divine promise upon her dictatorial finger.
Well, on the principle that the third time never
fails, we are entitled to hope that Lillian is
now about to advance into that haven of su
preme peace and happiness that decorates the
world with smiles, and gilds life with the
splendor of virtuous domesticity. Such a re
sult ought surely to be accomplished on the
According to the Mirror William H. Crane's
benevolence has caused him no end of trouble.
He wrote some time ago a svndicato article In
which he expressed the opinion that American
dramatists bad not been properly encouraged.
He also intimated that he wonld do his utmost
to foster the native product in future. Ac
cording to an article in a cotemporary.as soon
as the comedian's views became public prop
erty through the medium of the press, the
trouble began. Manuscripts arrived from all
points of the compass they came by mail, by
express, by district messenger boy, by the ball
boys of the hotel: they included tragedies,
melodramas, emotional plays, comic operas,
pantomimes, burlesques, vaudevilles, historical
and romantic dramas, plays of high lite, low
life, and of no life at all.
This persecution of Mr. Crane on account of
bis optimistic views, is said to have been kept
up throughout the entire season. When he at
last wa3 able to retire to his Bummer home at
Cohasset he fully expected a cessation of hos
tilities. His sorrow, however, failed ' to sur
cease, and the plays began to arrive, accom
panied by their respective authors. "Thehar
rassed actor." gave our authority, "fled to Bos
ton for relief, and lo! the streets seemed peo
pled with dramatists. And so it is still going"
on plays of every conceivable degree of bad
ness pouring In on Crane, and though he con
scientiously wades through at least an act of
each of them, he has not yet been rewarded by
one glimmer of the latent talent which, in his
opinion, it Is the actor's or manager's duty to
develop or encourage."
If this be trne, we should consider that
Bishop Hatto had a safe repeat in his mice
tower at Bingen, compared to the universal
knowledge of Mr. Crane's whereabouts. The
bishop was gnawed to death by the mice, to be
sure, bnt who can predict the lingering agony
that is still in store for the well-meaning
comedian, if this enidemic of manuscripts con
tinue to make his life burdensome.
Desist ye dramatists, desist! Mr. Crane is
far too good an actor to be worried to death in
this heartless and unnecessary manner.
"KAJAHKA," the new spectacle which was
presented for two weeks at the Columbia
Theater, Chicago, and at other first-class thea
ters to crowded houses, will be seen for the
first time here at the Grand Opera House to
morrow night and continue throughout the
week. The piece is in three acts and five
scenes, all of which are transformation scenes
of an elaborate character, the first act opening
with Beelzebub's cave and the descent of the
Imp, followed by the appearance of the Fairy
Queen from a golden star. The second scene is
in the idol room of the temple. In act second
is introduced the triumphal march otKajanka
and the Nautch dances. This is quickly trans
formed to a terrace, with prismatic fountains.
Here the London Gaiety dancers, four in num
ber, appear in a characteristic dance called
the "The Papillon," and also in a medley of the
latest English popular songs. Then follows a
grand march by a corps of young
and pretty girls, after which Miss Edith
Craske, 16 years of age. Is seen in a novel
transformation dance something on the order
of Miss Ida Heath. The follows the famous
Dsnazettis, the leading acrobats of Paris, in
their marvelous acrobatic act It is said that
this gymnastic performance is the greatest ever
witnessed In this country. It has never failed
to receive from six to eight encores nightly.
The last act of the piece is chiefly pantomimic
.with many novel magical tricks. The piece
closes with a realistic eartnquake which
changes into a magnificent tableau entitled the
"Rise of the Morning Sun," One hundred
people are employed in the representation,
among whom are the Allen sisters, George D,
Melville and Tillian Ruge. The ballet in
"Kajanka'Ms composed exclusively of hand
some young ladies, not one being over 21 years
of age. This will certainly be a novelty In this
line. "The ,clown, George D. Melville," says a
New York paper, "has no equal in this or
any other country, and in his juggling act
which is done by the aid of kitchen utensils, al
ways arouses the audience to tbe greatest en
thusiasm. Another feature is the pretty women
of the company. It is not every day that one
will see such beauties as Anna andRicca Al
len, Rose and Alice Batchelder, Edith Macklin
and Nellie Sennett in one company. The cos
tumes are rich and elegant and the Miller
Brothers have spared no expense to make this
one of tbe greatest spectacular prodnctions of
the present day." The scenery is described as a
mirvel of splendor, and the transformations
"Clover," the newest opera of Von Snppe,
the eminent composer of "Boccacelo," "Bell
man," "Fatinltza" and other successful operas
comique, will be given a fresh production in
this city, at the Bijou Theater, on Monday
evening. "Clover" enjoyed a successful run
of six months in New York, and will be pre
sented here by the entire original cast and
with all the scenic and other effects used dur
ing the stay lu the metropolis. All of Colonel
McCaull's best people are in tbe company, and
the production promises to be something
unique in the history of comic opera here.
Society will undoubtedly turn out In great
numbers to welcome tbe favorites of the Mc
Caull organization, and their season here, al
though brief, promises to be a most prosperous
one. "Clover" is from Von Suppe's "Die Jagd
nach dem Gluck," and was adapted par
ticularly for the well-known members
of the McCaull Operatic organization.
The plot has a touch of genuine romance, and
the music Is said to contain some" of the finest
numbers that ever emanated from the prolific
fancy ot its composer. The cast includes
Charles W. Dungan, Marion Mauola, Eugene
Oudln, DoWolf Hopper, Annie Myers! Lindsey
Morrison, Jefferson de Angelis and other well
known people. The scenes are laid in Bavaria,
Paris, Sweden and Venice. Country folk, bal
let girls, cavaliers, soldiers, fisher girls, mas
queraders and gondoliers are all represented,
making, with the bright music and the fine sce
nery, a very picturesque and pleasing general
Domtnice: Mtjbbay's great play, "A Legal
Wrong," will be seen at Harris Theater this
week. The play is a sensational one, sure, but
of the class that pleases a large proportion of
the regular theater-goers ot a large city. It Is
full of exciting scenes, where the audience can
yell themselves hoarse, and then again it has a
great deal nf fun in it .which can be appre
ciated by all. Its success, however, is in its
spectacular sensationalism. Its great scene is
a cyclone at sea, This Is very well worked up,
and makes a great hit The story of the' play
is of an original class. The company as a whole
is a strong one. Mr. Morris, as Clarence Gray,
a young Southern gentleman, brave, honest
and true, has the leading role.
LILT CLAY'S Colossal Gaiety Company will
be theattractlon at Harry Williams Academy
this week. It is needless to say that the com
pany is a great favorite here, and that crowded
houses will be the rule. Much new talent has
been engaged since the last appearance of
these gay burlesque artists in this city, and a
better performance than any heretofore given
is promised. Egyptian beauties in national
pastimes, historical and mythological group
ings, the spectacular soiree musicale "Beauty
in Dreamland," and the dashing burlesque en
titled "The Devil's Frolic" are a few of the
many striking features of the programme.
Heebekt Wabd, the companion of the
creat explorer, Stanley, will lecture at Old
City Hall on Friday evening under the aus
pices of the Press Club. His subject will be
the "Cannibals of the Congo." Mr. Ward is
said to be an eloquent speaker, and as he has
himself seen what he describes he is able to set
forth most graphically the strange customs of
me Darnanans 01 tno jjarn yuuuuoui, ui
coarse the lecture does not deal with canni
bals altogether; there is enough in it that is
humorous, pathetic and peculiar to make the
whole most entertaining.
Ok Saturday, November 80, Jules Levy, the
renowned cornetist: Madam Rosa Linde (Mrs.
Schaarscbmldt), Madam Stella Levy, Mr.
Edwin J. Shouert and Mr. William J. Lavin
will give a concert at Old City Hall. A mu
sical programme of rare excellence is guaran

rar cable to the dispatch. t
London, November 18. Copyright There
is a Thomas Nelson Page boom in London.
Whether It was brought about by interest in
the personality 'of Page, who spent a summer
in England, does not appear, but the boom
exists. The last Spectator contains a eulo
gistic notice of him in "Old Virginia." An
essay on Page's writings will appear in an early
number of the New Review. I am informed
at Brentano'stbat the supply of Page's books in
London has been unequal to tbe demand. This

Grace Hawthorne, the American actress,
who has a suit pending for 10,000 damages
against A. M. Palmer for breach of contract in
the matter of non-production of "Theodora,"
opens her season in this play at the Brighton,
Monday. Miss Hawthorne has just returned
from Paris, where she has been studying the
role under the personal direction of Sardon, the
author. Tbe English adaptation Is by Robert
Buchanan. Miss Hawthorne has obtained the
costumes, armor and jewels manufactured for
Palmer before the negotiations between them
were broken oS; they are by Daquesal, of
Paris, and are said to be tbe most magnificent
ever worn in a stage production. Miss Haw
thorne's theater, tbe Princess, opens in a week
or two with a new play by Brandon Thomas.
"The Gold Craze."
Agnes Huntington, another American who
has made "Paul Jones" the enormous success
it has been, has the honor of having three dis
tinguished men engaged in constructing a new
operetta for her sole use. Bisson is writing the
libretto and Planquette the music, and Bur
nand, editor of Punch, is putting Bisson's
French into English. Planquette came to Lon
don this week to let Miss Huntington
bear his music, but refused to allow
anyone else to hear It The opera has
not yet been named, but Bumand
says tbe libretto is clever enough to be staged
without music Miss Huntington has just
signed a new contract with tbe Prince of
Wales' theater, at a salary said to be the high
est ever paid in the annals of comic opera in
London. Sho is one of the greatest successes
of tbe English stage, and daily a score of mash
letters, which her mother opens, reveals a con
dition of the heart in the bosom of the'yoath
fnl Briton that is pitiable.
Loie Fuller, who has been playing "Caprice,"
at tbe Globe Theater, is seriously ill. As a

The communication of Comrade Chill
Hazzard in last Sunday's Grand Army col
umn has brought forth the following ex
pressions of opinion:
We are greatly surprised to read, under tbe
head of "Men Who Wore the Blue," the re
marks in last Sunday's Dispatch of Mr. Chill
Hazzard In regard to Confederate monuments
at Gettysburg. He writes: "The only Confed
erate monument at Gettysburg is simply a
marker; it simply shows where that one rebel
regiment fought; Its legend is correct and accu
rate history." I saw that monument in com
pany with a number of friends who saw actual
service there, and we wilL by proof if so de
sired, show by photograph that that monument
is more than "simply a marker." It is a monu
ment to treason, bearing the inscription which
was offensive and false "C. S. A.," which
never was in existence. It did not require to
be so immense and elaborate, surmounted by a
big cannon ball and the State coat-ol-arms of
Maryland chiseled on Its surface, opposite the
Union Maryland loyal boys' regiment monu
ment of the trne blue. Now, any person
wonld surely know that wherever was erected
a Union monument that there were some
traitors met and opposed In that locality. The
Union monuments show the position held
against the rebel foe.
Mrs. George W. Hughes.
The brain that evolved this supports Com
rade Hazzard's ideas:
1 read tbe article of Comrade Chill "W". Hazzard
In last Sunday's Uispatob. 1 agree with every
word tbat Comrade Hazzard writes. I was in
Gettysburg on Pennsylvania Day, and saw the
monument of the Maryland regiment (Kebel)
snnireii of. Althou ffh it la n. verr neat monument
tfiere Is nothing offensive about It. It simply
states tbat the regiment occupied this position on
tbe second day or the battle.
I think the line of battle of the Confederate
Army shonld be marked in some way, and also tbe
advanced position reached by tbem. It Is more to
the credit of the Union army, when It is shown
bow far or how near tbe rebel army reaebed to
the Union lines, and the Union Army repulsed
