One of the best paring attractions on
the road will make its last appearnuce at
the Frotbiueham on next Wednesday
evening. John L. Sullivan In "A True
American" is a consDicuous nttura on the
dramatic horizon at present. The piece
was written especially for Mr. Sullivan
by Lawyer Edmund E. Price, of New
lorn, f rom the moment wueu Mr. Sulli
van, as John Desmond, arrives on tbe
stage the interest never flags. The second
and third acts gives a programme of well
selected specialties, and tbe last act serves
as a sort of climax, for it is then that tbe
redoubtable and long invincible John L. is
nimseir, ana givos an exhibition or tbe
manly art of boxing that is all too short

sad one. I refer, of course, to the death

charitable gentleman. His illness has

His career was a curious one. At
the age of 4 he and his brother were
robbed of a good father, who was
killed through jumping from a car

ninn princess wiio had been a good and
faithful wife, their union being in
every way a happy one. The widow
devoted all her attention to her little
sous, the comte and his brother, the
Uuc de unartres, and tney were pro
vided with the best of tutors. The
comte proved au apt scholar and made
rapid progress. Misfortune set in
when his grandfather, Louis Phillipe,
abdicated in his favor, the French ob
jecting to the rule or a woman, and it
was necessary that the comte's mother
should rule his actions. The people
also held strong objoctions to the Due
de Nemours as regent. Consequently
a provisional government was drawn,

At a general court of the proprietors
of the Bank of England a great scene
occurred owing to one or two members
requiring to know the particulars of
the last cashier's (Mr. May) several
transactions. Mr. May played a great
deal into the hands of his sons, who
were stockbrokers, and it is Btated that
25,000 was lost over various transac
tions. He quoted several Instances
and when he bad finished the governor
stated that he bad a letter from Adrian
Hope (one of the persons mentioned)
stating that he did not authorize the
statements circulated, and that al
though he certainly lost something by
Mr. May's advice, he was fully satis
fled with all arrangements made by
the bank to recompense him. His
statements were regarded as wholly
satisfactory aud the rest of the pro
ceedings were amicable:. Among other
statements that which pertained to

Southend seems to be a happv haven
for suicides and murders. Two suicides
have taken place there this week, and
a great deal of concern was occasioned
there owing to the sudden disappear
ance of a good looking girl. She was
eventually discovered at a married
sister's house at liourford. In the
police court the girl told an extra
ordinary story. Her "young man"
was in a despondent state and the girl
proposed to nim that tney should die
together, consequently she left her
home suddenly and met him near
itourtord in fessex where he took and
gave her a dose of poison, but it was
not strong euougn and alter enduring
it an hour sue told him to stab her
which he did in the neck. After a
while she told him to stab her again
and the unfeeling wretch indicted a
wound on her breast and again on the
neck But it was not to be, for neither
died and they took separate trains, she
going to Rourford where a doctor pro

in an advanced state or consumption,
and a tund is being raised in tiiedis

house is situated, to give this member
of the "noble six hundred" a prlval
funeral. Another death of interest is

A smart capture by a detective of an
Americau who was "wanted" on the

paper. He was traced to one of tbe
boats running between Liverpool and
North Wales. The "tec" started for
Llandudno by train, but arrived at the
pier to see the boat making olt with
his quarry on board. A knowledge of
tbis part or tne country served bun
well and he took an immediate train
to Bangor, where he took a cab a mile
and a half to Garth Point. The boat
was in sight and he must reach Beau
maris before it arrived, so he offered
some boatman ten shillings to land
him at Beaumaris pier, which is three
miles across the water, before the
steamer arrived. The rowers did a
record aud reached their goal two min

Detective calmly awaited its arrival

The brilliant yachting duels between

sad drowning of the mate and one of the
crew of the Britannia. Captain Carter

that a well-known business man of the

do not feel able to spare the sash for

Dhe Fuller building on Lackawanna
avenue, over tbe Fair, ia being fitted
up for the Scranton School ot Musio,
which will open with a beginners
class in sight singing next Thursday
evening. Tallie Morgan established
this school two years ago, and last
winter nearly 700 students attended
the various sight singing olasies. So
large has tbe school become tbat it has
become nssessary to seoure new quar
ters, and be has been fortunate in get
ting such a central loeation. Sight
singing bas been a positivo neoessity
in a musical education, and when one
can secure tbe best of Instruction for
(1 a month it would seem tbat hun
dreds would avail themselves of tbe
opportunity. George C. btebbins,
while here a week or two ago, said tbat
Mr. Morgan had the finest svstem of
sight singing he had ever seen, and
strongly urged bim to publish it in
book form at onee.

A visit to the Young Men's Christian
Assoeintion hall last Saturday after
noon revealed an interesting sight.
There wsre a great crowd of children.
ranging in ages between 9 and 13 years,
receiving tbeir weekly musio in read
ing from Tallie Morgan. After some
time spent iu skipping from note to
note ou the scale marked on tbe black
board, the teacher dictated in fig; ores
a new marohtog aoug he had just then
composed. Every obild took down tbe
figures met as quickly given, and then
ang tbe song from the figures just as
if they had always known it Then
tbey were instructed to translate the
song into notes, some in tbe key of C,
others in D, A flat, B and other keys.
It is simply wonderful bow readily
these children did the work, and a
work that would put to shame a great
many of our growu up singers.
