Society 1ms not had many large af
fairs to eiiK.ige its attention during the
week, and consequently many have de
voted all their spare day hours to driv

passes that does not witness numerous
pleasure vehicles being driven up or
down the valley or through the Notch
toward Dal ton: The kaleidoscopic
dress of the woods cannot be appre
ciated through the city's heavy atmos
phere, but a nearby view well repays
a ride through the unpolluted air of the
country. It's an excellent cure for de
spondency, that tired feeling and physi
cal Ills of all sorts. Some one has said,
substantially, that one who has viewed

The theaters during the week pre
sented several attractions of the melo
dramatic order, which received gener
ous patronage. The attendance possi
bly doubled that of the week preceding,
when standard plays were given.
These facts simply prove that if the.
proprietors consult only their financial
welfare, inferior attractions will earn
them money returns and appeal to the
general public. It Is not a condition
which the most refined can swallow
with good grace, but It Is nevertheless
true. Whether the large patronage ot
second-class plays proves that Scran
ton people cannot appreclateastandard
play, or whether It indicates that pol
ished people are not theatergoers, is a
proposition the people themselves enn

A reception will be held this evening
at 320 Mlflin avenue to celebrate three,
anniversaries, which form an unusuai
feature. Each anniversary occurs in
the same family. Mr. and Mrs. Na
thaniel Hnlstead will celebrate theh
golden wedding; Mrs. Halstead's birth
day will also be celebrated and the
birthday of her son, P. N. Hnlsteiid.
Mr. Ilalstead has this week lived one
of the most eventful periods of hih life,
especially In his connection with the
centennial anniversaries of the baptist
community, where he has witnessed
the fulfillment of his fondest hopes. He
has been deacon of the church since its
organization In isr.9 and is now senior
deacon. He Is also a charter member
and has shown his practical method ot
helping his church by presenting it
the beautiful parsonage, which nt the
time was valued at $12,000. Several
relatives and friends will arrive today
to participate in the celebrations.

It may Interest the many admirers of
Mme. Lillian Klauvelt, the noted New
York singer, to know something ot her
personal history. She Is a native of
lirooklyn, N. Y and resides there at
present. Her maiden name was Lillian
lilauvelt and in lSf2 she married Ed
ward IJ. Smith, a pianist and baritone
singer of fair ability. Mr. Smith Is also
or Urooklyn and usually plays the piano
accompaniments for Mme. filauvelt's
vocal performances. Sin? is a firm be
liever in Christian science and when In
Uroolclyn is treated a few hours previ
ous to each of her performances by
Mrs. Wilklns, a well known exponent
of Christian science. When far away
from the city of churches Mme. '.lau
rel t believes It possible to receive the
support of the scientist and arranges
for treatment at certain hours. While
establishing her vocal reputation, which
became extensive only two years ago,
she was nlways extremely nervous if
her Christian science friend did not
know of her engagements. Mme Ulau
velt is only 28 years of age. Her father
Is u bookkeeper in a large retail dry
goods store in Urooklyn.
The leading Jewish women of the city
are much Interested In the Seranton
branch of the National council of Jew
ish women, which was organized early
in the summer preparatory to tho work
of the winter months. The object of
tn organization is to discuss educa
tlonal religious and philanthropical
work In Its application to woman's
sphere in Jewish circles. Tho oiricers
and members of the local branch are
members of the Linden Street temple.

Contractu of a Welsh Journal on a
Haydn I'.vans Concert.
The Llanelly.Wales.Guardinn, of Oct.
says: "On Tuesday evenlii"-. llavdn
Evans' Cambro-Amerlcan Concert com
pany visited Llanelly. As our readers
nave before noticed, the company,
consisting of three ladles and three
gentlemen, brought with them a good
reputation from the United States. The
conductor, Professor Haydn Evans'
choir won the $5,000 prize nt the World's
talr eisteddfod. Chicago: Joseph Burns
Is the winner of the baritone solo at the
World's fair eisteddfod; Miss Sadie
Kaiser's reputation was such that in
May last she took the soprano part in
Judas Muecabneus in conjunction with
lien Da vies und Wiitkin Mills at the
W'ilkes-llarre oratorio concerts; Miss
Jullen C. Allen, stated to be the most
celebrated lady violinist in America;
Miss Cordelia Freeman, a prominent
American contralto; and James Anwyl,
winner of numerous prizes at American
'The programme was varied and of a
high class, and was carried out excel
lently. It opened with a very chaste
quartette 'Star K Declining Night,'
Misses Kaiser and Freeman and Messrs.
Burns and Anwyl, given with taste and
precision and a very nice blend of the
voices. Mr. Hums followed with a
splendid rendering of 'The Skipper
(Judo), and was re-demanded, when he
sang naively and Jauntily 'Off to Phila
delphia.' Miss Allen in her selection.
Violin valse de concert' (Musin), sus
tained her well-earned reputation by
her very requisite manipulation of the
violin. Her fineness and precision of
touch was greatly appreciated, and she
received an encore, nicely responded to
by a delicate rendering of 'Hen Wind fy
Nhadau.' Misses Kaiser and Freeman
sang with much taste and judgment
tho duet, 'Harp of the Winds' (Abt).
Mr. Anwyl in his song, 'Holy City,' se
cured a merited encore, and he sur
passed his first song' in his response
with a Welsh song in the minor key.
Again Miss Allen gratilied the audi
ence with 'Cavitina' (Bolim), and was
loudly cheered. Miss Kuiser, Messrs.
Burns and Anwyl followed with a trio
from 'Attila' (Verdi), which was well
'Miss Kaiser's rendering of 'I.o, Hear
the Gentle Lark' (Bishop), was extreme
ly clever. She has a voice of great com
pass, and which is well under control;
especially effective were her floral ren
derings of this beautiful song. In which
site brought down the house, securing
an unanimous encore. Miss Allen again
gave a most excellent and artistic ren
dering of 'Kugwiak' ( Weeniawski), und
proved herself a veritable adept on her
lovely violin, was encored, which sin?
acknowledged, but did not respond.
Miss Kaiser and Mr. Burns gave a most
pathetic and nrtistic rendering of 'l
Feel Thy Angel Spirit' (Hoffman), and
received loud upplaus'. Miss Freeman
was most successful in her singing of
'Spring Flowers' ( (Ueinecke), accoin
panied by piano and violin. and received
a loud encore, in response to which was
given very sweetly and intelligently the
recitative 'Come Unto Me and Rest,' ac
companied on the violin by Miss Allen.
A duet in Welsh from 'Blodwen' (Dr.
Parry), was a most popular rendering,
which brought down the house, and it
was re-demanded and .responded to
equally as successfully; the two singers
blending beautifully in their rendering
and articulating very clearly. The quar
tette 'Oh, the Sad Moments of Parting'
(Costa), was carefully given by the solo
ists, and this, with 'Hen Wind fy Nha
dau,' solo by Mr. Anwyl, brought to a
close a most enjoyable concert. J. Al
len Williams conducted the proceedings.
The class of music was all of a high
order, as will be seen by the composers'
names, and received very careful treat
ment nt the hands of the party. Wo
trust that during the remainder of the
stay of tho company in this country
they will be received cordially, and we
hope the sojourn in the 'land of their
fathers' may prove as much a source of
interest and pleasure to them as have
been their concerts to the auditors this
side of tho water.
THE EMPEROR RELENTED.
Was Won Over by the Appeal of a Yankee
From the Philadelphia Ledger.
A little American fcirl has 'just
softened the heart of the stern German
Emperor In a very pretty way. Every
young German man bus to serve a cer
tain time as a seildler after his educa
tion is completed, and this little girl,
who lives in this country, Journeyed
all the way over the sea to visit a cer
tain "dear uncle," only to find that he
was off nt the barracks doing soldier
duties. She was greatly disappointed
and much distressed, ami, as she was
told that no One but the emperor could
help her, wltn true American independ
ence she decided to write to him.
She did so, telling him how sorry she
felt to find her dear uncle away, and
saying that she had often heard of the
emperor's kindness, and was sure, when
he knew all about the circumstances, he
would arrange for her uncle's return.
The letter reached the emperor, and
eventually arrived at the war office,
with instructions attached to it. Eight
days after tho "dear uncle" was In
formed that he might either postpone
his military duties entirely until' next
year, or receive pen-mission to spend
some days In his native village, the
quaint appeal of the trusting little niece
having quite won the monarch's heart.

Without It tho Amcricun Artist Will

Theatrical World-News nnd Gos
sip About Local Favorites.
The old cry that no actor who has not
the seal of English approval can win
success in this country has again been
raised. So worthy an artist as Julia
Arthur is quoted in the Mirror as sny
ng: "The road to success today, lies
by wuy of London. If I get a good part
there and make a success of it, the
American managers will then lind parts
for me, too. Since my success four
years ago at the Union Square In "The
Black Mask," 1 have never had a part
that gave me an opportunity. 1 have
n-n-neu numerous oilers this season,
but none that cold accept. I couldn't
take a step backward. In London 1
may get a chance." Miss Arthur has
some reason for her claim. There Is
much of Anglomania on the stage. Im
ported actors do much better here than
they might If American actors would
only follow English methods In a great
er or less degree.' Nym Crinkle, who
knows as much about the American
stage as anyone, says this is at the hot
torn of the whole matter, tie declares
that we have us good, If not better, tal
ent in this country us can be found in
England, but says that American play
ers are too impatient for Immediate
(iiacess to do the plodding that polishes
the art of the Englishmen arid makes
thoin more acceptable to the theater
goers. His conc lusion, based in just
such p. premise as that formulated by
Miss Arthur, is: "one thing appears
to me to be Inevitable if we make no
room for actors who would ralher be
f,:-eat in the end than successful at t:i
beginning. If we have no universities
of art In our theater ami no applied
public sentiment of a stimulative kitii
outside the theatc, we shall continue
to Pave accidents Instead of artists, an I
the lime will come when America wi!!
bo the harvest-liel.l for foreigners wh.i
(succeed In bringing us what we could
not develop unci did hot care to encour
age within ourselves."
The basis of Crinkle's argument is
that there are plenty of actors here who
are the equal of English actors in every
way. He cites these particular in
stances: "It Isn't ability altogether
that is needed, but system and patience
and opportunity. Mr. Mansfield's
Richard was a great deal better dra
matic performance than Mr. Willaru's
Hamlet. His old roue in "A Parisian
Romance" is quite as acute and artistic
an impersonation as Mr. li ving's Louis
XI. Mrs. Chanfrau was at her best
quite us good an actress as Mrs. Ken
dal. Joseph Holland and Wilton Lack
aye are the equals in most nnd the su
perior in many redes. of the English ac
tors that come to us. Ada Kenan has
less temperament but more vitality
than Ellen Terry. Julia Arthur, with
discretion and good judgment, can
eclipse any melodramatic actress who
has come to us recently from England.
Clara Morris tit her start was as muc h
of a phenomenon as Hose, but she never
had the patience to become as much of
an artist. C. C. Maekay is as methodi
cal as Cociuelin, but not as ambitious
Mr. (filbert saw Oalatea only with im
agination, until Mary Anderson played
It, and then he recognized his work with
Ills eyes. When Mr, Tcrrlss got out
from Mr. Irvlng's wing and came here,
some of our actors look all bis prestige
away In his own company. You can
not contemplate1 Marlowe nnd Wain
wrlght and Sellgmaii and Julia Arthur
without understanding at once that
they are in art for immediate returns
and are hustling. Wlllon l.iii-kaye al
most merits the term 'Job lot' for his
capricious Industry, and yet there is no
better equipped. Well-disciplined Intelli
getice on our boards. It Is doubtful If
these actors have any desire to be
'great' in the accepted sense of acclaim,
and yet all of them are greater In nat
ural Illness and ductile dramatic gifts
than Irving was when he was playing
their grades of character in Moc k com
panies.. It would be dllllcult to lind on
the English stage a more conscientious
and indefatigable student In his profes
sion than Mr. Suthern. But .Mr. Soih
ern seems to be unable to rise above a
dead level of la-cla-da plays In which
heroism must smell of Rotten Bow."
The magnitude of the operations un
dertaken by Abbey. Sc hoeiiVl & Crnu is
still more remarkable than the vast und
varied business on which Charles Froii

cisco spent $IO,o::s in two weeks to sec

Is held by Boston, which paid fl:'..ss;i

he has paid $l,000.0!KI apiece to Sarah
Bernhardt and A del Inn l'attl. lie took
In something over $1,0011,000 during tin
last grand opera season. It Is also
stated that under her present contract
with Abbey, Schoeffel & (Ira 11, Lillian
Russell receives $l.roo a week. These
are almost Incredible figures. But
Henry E. Abbey does not exaggerate
any matters relating to his business
und this statement, the Buffalo Express,
thinks, may be accepted as authorltn
the. "The humor of 'A Milk White Flag'
is pretty nearly all of It evolved from a
corpse," writes Charles Alfred Byrne
"Orlginnlly the corpse was one believed
real. But, und in deference to tint es
thetic tastes of Chicago, it Is now only
suppositious. In the second act. when
the widow wants to know why tin. un
dertaker comes back to the house of
mourning, the latte r replies: 'I wanted
to find out If His (ioueniss hadn't
spoiled.' That Is a fair sample' of much
of the dialogue. In short, Mr. Hoyt
has turned the graveyard funny
Further we cannot go. The widow
wants to know how much the funeral
will cost. 'Three hundred dollars,' says
the undertaker. 'And he only weighed
ISO pounds,' excinlmed the widow.
'Don't you think a dollar a pound is
enough'.'' The. good taste of this
sort of thing does not seem to
come In question. A very fashion
able audience laughed heartily at these
mortuary jokes last night. Diphtheria,
pneumonia and yellow fever were occa
sionally employed to make the people,
laugh. What a humorous thing It Is to
have a contagious ellsense disease was
never so fully emphasized. It was the
sublimation of the gruesome. A comic
opera on the germ theory is next it,
' A re-unlon of Keclcy clubs was held

finished. The youngwoman was Marlon
Manola, the actress and singer, and
wife of "Handsome Jack" Mason. "
Discussing the much-debated ques
tion whether good acting results from
feeling or training, Henry Irving re
cently said: "The young man desirous
ut becoming an actor must avoid em
bracing the mischievous Idea that act
ing is merely a matter of feeling; that a
part to be interpreted is merely n mat
ter of feeling; that a part to be inter
preted is merely as he happens to feel
at the time of its purtrayal. I have said
acting is a science, and therefore, tho
actor should try to make It as exact a
science as possible. He should study
every facial expression, every gesture,
every inflexion of voice, every move
ment that he Intends to employ In the
delineation of his role before he takes to
the stage, and should know just how he
is gcdng to speak, look, walk and ges
ticulate in every phrase, and not trust
to feeling to lnsp.lre him to do these
things after he goes upon the stage."
Charles Rohlfs, In a charming series
of reminiscences of Edwin Booth, says:
After Booth was compelled to give up
his well equipped theater he became
very Indifferent to the mounting of his
lepenoire, or, indeed, anything that
did not concern him individually. At
one time lie was a matchless stage
swordsman. His bout In Act V. of
"Hamlet" was a fascinating example ot
sword play. For several years before
he ceased to appear It was a careless
piece of work. This ho tedd me freely
when it was my good fortune to have
a long and uninterrupted chat with him
at the Players' club. We spoke of cos
tume and stage properties and what
suggested a real thing rather than Imi
tated It. " inn u curious and expen
sive experience," sal. I he. ".My crown,
chain, sword unci dagger In 'Richard
111' were the queer thinge that we all
use. Well, my friends thought 1 ought to
have the real things, and at an expense
they would never mention, presented
me with real gold, real jewels, and
what not. Do you know that aside- from
the gift that I cherished as a token of
friendship, I was not sorry to have the
Winter Gurde-n destroy them. I did
not feel at home in that kind of real
Ism." tie spoke of his German tour,
prefacing bis remarks with a quiz
zical smile- peculiar to himself. "Yes,
they treated ine well, but It was a cu
rious experience in many ways, of
course 1 could not speak a word of fle-r-man
and understood less. Ui-lng con
cerned about how they spoke of me
In the papers I uskeel my agent to get
them and tell me what thev said In
detail. All I could get out of him was
they say you are a great actor.' "Yes
but upon what do they base their opin
ions?" I asked him. All I could get in
response was 'your acting Is great,
they say you are a great actor.' It
does not pay to be a great actor In
t.ermany though. The theaters are
mainly under government control. The
house was generally full and 1 had rea
son to hiok for a great harvest. You
can imagine my amusement when after
going through a long list of deductions
tor the city nnd general government,
the theate-r expenses, the special tax,
and heaven knows what not, they came
down to little- me with a few pfVnnige.
I hey Insisted upon nie being a great
actor though, and I became gradually
accustomed to the fue-t that that ex
alted place harmonized with small re
ceipts." A French version of "Swcehe-arts"
was produced in the Paris Odeon the
other evening with Indifferent success.
Ihe I allure was due. In part, to an tin-
ucky accident. The hero, returning to
his native town after an absence of
th rty years, fiiuls everything changed.
What Improvements!" he exclaims;
"why, It Is quite, a large town, and
lighted by electricity, too!" Scarcely
were the words out of the actor's mouth
when tlie theater was suddenly plunged
In darkness, owing to a break-down of
the electric current. Amid roars or
laughter, an impromptu Illumination
was obtained by the simultaneous
lighting of hundreds of wax lights by
the; audience; but the current was soon
switched on again, and in a few seconds
light was restored, whereupon the ae-tor
linished . his phrase, savinir. "It Is
scarcely credible!" This was greeted
witli renewed roars ami the fate of the
piece was sealed for that evening at
Henry Irving, in addressing the Liter
ary Institute- of Walsall the other even
ing, availed himself of the opportunity
to make an appeal for the institution or
munic ipal theaters. He said Unit some
reformers advocated the Swedish plan
of municipal public houses; others,
hen iled by a bishop, wished to organizes
a trading company for the acenilsition
of sue h property, anil the application or
prollts to purposes of public utility. No
bishop considered the theater a fitting
institution for that or a similar enterprise-,
though II might strike a social re
leii iner that the ilrama was of at least
cental linpeii tance with the dram. Thev

A rational solution of the annual "sick
time" is to be found, thinks the Inde
pendent, in the conditions likely to pre
vail In a bouse that has been "closed
up," or left In the care of servants. The
trouble has been wittily named Cellar
Itls, and can easily arise from the damp,
dark cavity beneath the house, calleel
the cellar, which may have been tightly
closed for three or four months, or,
what Is nearly as bad, has been left to
the unintelligent carelessness of a serv
ant or a caretaker. Everybody knows
that the most deadly enemies of bac
teria of all sorts are light and air; but
the cellar in question has every aper
ture through which a thief could get a
glimpse tightly shut, and nil man
ner of creeping things, and those that
fly on invisible wings, have had just
the conditions in which they multiply
with Incredible rapidity. They can pass
through apertures many times smaller
than un ordinary pinhole, and the
searching furnace heat has produced
many in the best built "mansions;" and
what havoc It has wrought Ih the con-tractor-built-made-to:sell
will not attempt to say. The house
above this bacteria-breeding cavity has
also been tightly dosed; all possible
light and air, of course, shut out, so
that any malarial microbes that have
originated in the cellar have been
caught and corruled on the spot. In
stead of the country's having harmed
film, the best protection the householder
has against their onset Is the rovhilled
blood and the additional stock of health
and strength he has brought back from
his rural sojourn; any member of the
family who is in uny respect below par
In physique Is the ready-made subject
of these Inimical microbes. As to the
condition of cellars that servants
have had unsupervised access to,
this page would blush a sickly.
moldy, malarious green were they to
lie described. Does the mistress of the
house go down Into this virtual cave
and look after the cleansing? Not at
all. She takes It for granted that it is
all right; her husband carefully In
spected it when he rented the house,
und when the owner hail had it put in
spick and span rentable order, and
never again does Its condition cross the
mind of the mistress of tho mansion.
These remarks are Intended to apply to
premises that Were in genuinely good
condition when the house was bought
or rented. It Is in tlie summer season
that malarial elements are generated
and many a lady lies quaking with
chills or burning fever in the midst of
luxurious cushions.blaming tlie malarial
country, while the? real source of her
woes is below her velvet carpet. Of
course the remeely lies in a 1 thorough
and protracted "airing" of tlie apart
ments above the cellar belore they are
again occupied, and not only a thorough
cleaning and airing and searching for
hidden nuisances in the cellar, but the
walls should be treated to a complete1
coat of good lime whitewash. Country
housewives have long been familial'
with its cleansing virtues: but now
that the patient German scientists have
demonstrated that no other available
ugeut kills so many kinds of microbes
so quickly, people can use it with re
doubled vim, "sustained and soothed"
by this seientilic endorsement. It is
cheap, and to be had everywhere. Let
us call the autumn sufferings, from
supposed country malaria, by the ex
pressive name; Ce-llaiitis; and to your
cellars, O city housewives! Air them,
search the-m for hidden nuisances,
cleanse them, apply the microbe de
stroying whitewash and live happier
