Some of the More Important Doings
of These, Our Actors.
riytn Crinkle Is of the Opinion Thut the
Day of the Classic Drama Uu
About Ended Especially In
This Country.
Nym Crinkle is convinced that
Shakespeare's day hus passed. The ac
tor uys that this is because the public
does not want Shakespeare. The pub
lic suya it is because the actor cannot
play Shakespeare. And Mr. Crinkle
thinks they ure both rlKht. "I heard
an Intelligent critic say," he writes,
"that as wealth and repose and refine
ment increased in a Democratic coun
try, Shakespeare would lie in greater
demund. This has been said very often
In the magazines. But it is dlfllcult to
square it with the facts. Assuming
this to be true, Shakespeare ought to
be oftener played aijd more keenly'np
preciated thun he was fifty yeurs ago.
But he isn't. We have three times the
number of theaters and 75 per cent, less
of Shakespeare. In short, we no longer
huve a Shakespearean theater at all.
Fifty yeurs ago the democracy de
manded Shakespearean plays that was
one of the reproaches heaped upon For
rest the democracy wanted him. They
wanted the elder Booth. They support
ed K L. Davenport, nnd they hung
upon Murdoch and Tom Hainblin and
Fanny Kemble, nnd had a riot when
Cooke and Macready played Shakes-
npnr. If tia l,w,i-.,t,uo u.-.,ittli (,,,.1
leisure incident to the uge of a comA
iminlly insured the performance of
Shakespeare, England ought to be
playing him. Is she? Not a bit of It,
The popiUur play for wealth and re
finement during the last London seuson
was 'Sans dene,' a piece of clever vul
garity In which a French woman
swept the enthusiasm up with her
skirts. Henry Irving keeps Shakes
peare in his repertory very much us a
fashionable woman keeps a set of Dres
den china in her closet to be set out on
special occasions and then wushed up
and put back again. It does not ap
pear thut he plays Benedick or Shy
lock, or Hamlet, because there is a
popular demand for these roles, but
rather because there isn't, and to do
them occasionally indicates that he is a
little Independent of popular demand.
It Is no disparagement of the great poet
and master of Kngllsh drama to say
that the intelligent public do not wunt
him us much as they once did on the
stage. You might as well sav thut
Homer has ceased to be great because
he isn t sung on fW streets. Shakes
peare, like every other immortal thing,
passes from one stage of appreciation
to another. I think Intelligence and
culture have learned to see depths in
Shakespeare that are bevond the ordin
ary actors. We get revised versions of
film Just as we do of the Bible, and he
s subjected to the higher criticism and
lives on with now meanings In the
study and in the heart, while the stage
is pounding away at the old histrionic
conceptions of him."

Pont-y-Pridd. S. W., Oct. 10.
We have now but two weeks more of
engagements left, nnd they will be lllled
right through every night, until they
ure done, whim, I fancy, we will all feel
like heaving a great big sigh as we con
template the past six or seven weeks of
hard, but nevertheless much enjoyed
work, which we will consider, and with
out vanity, very well finished. Of
course you are aware that It Is no easy
matter, this concertlzing night after
night, with the fatigues of traveling
sometimes thrown in very emphatic
ally, and to be up to the inspiration
point every evening Is quite u credit to
us, especially since we have gotten so
used to our audiences that they cannot
Interest us very much, no mutter how
much we Interest them by our work.
It has been quite an experience, and one
for which I am very thankful, consid
ering it from all points of view. I
think that I can say 1 have learned ull
there Is to be learned of the art of
packing trunks and such traps, and of
the quickest und surest way of getting
ready to catch a train. Indeed, thwle
has grown upon me, during these past
weeks, a sort of feeling thut I am "ever
ready," like the much-advertised dress
stuy, for instant application anywhere.
Our voices have all stood the wear and
tear remarkably well Indeed we have
not failed to win very high praise for
every concert-and our violinist charms
every one all over, wherever she Is
heard. We are all Immensely proud of
her, und, of course, Justly so.
Market Day in Pontyl'rldd.
Todav is market day here in l'ont-y-
Prldd. where all the country people
come into town to sell their butter and
cheeses, and contribute to the public-
house keeper's profits. These cheeses
are wonderful. Of course everybody
has heard of Welsh cheese. Well, It is
not made in factories, as our cheese Is,
but is made at home in the country
here, where every woman who has a
cow hus also a cheese press. In Which
tnse idieeses. which are made of genu
ine milk und cream, are shaped, before
bringing to market, w here they are dis
posed of to the grocery stores and to
the cheese und butter merchant, iney
romp in nil sizes, some small ns a din
ner plate, while others ure ns large and
ponderous as an American car wheel,
and weigh as heavy us twenty-five
pounds. Today being market day, the
town Is full to overflowing with drum
mers or "commercials" as they call
them here. These traveling men come
on Wednesday to deliver ciders given
the previous market day (lust ednes-
duy) and the shopkeepers buy of them
in the morning and then close their
shops in the afternoon, opening up the
next morning with a flourish, on the
strength of having a lot of new things
In stock.
But speaking of market day re'
minds me of Llanelly, where there Is
a real market, and a real market duy,
to be sure. In the center of the town Is
a very large Inclosed space which, once
you get into It, seem to be a little town
in itself. In its very center stands a
large market house, about the size of
the armory in Wilkes-Barre, I should
Judge, and all over In this pavilion are
tables and counters on which are sold
poultry, and cheese, and butter and
Buch things for the housekeeper's sake
alone. As the people who have these
tables und booths are unmistakably
country people, I suppose they pay a
small rent for whatever corner ot
this market they occupy with
their goods. What I noticed partlcu
larly about this part of the market, was
the absolute cleanness and prettiness of
everything. The poultry Is already
dressed for cooking and decorated with
parsley, and us dainty as it can be. So
also are tho cheeses and the casks ef
butter everything simply exquisitely
clean. Really, one glance at these mar
kets with their clean, dainty arrange'
ments and bustling, business-like wo
men attendants would be enough to
cause tho blush of shume to mount the
forehead of the most Indifferent Amerl
can butcher or grocer. They are cer
tainly way ahead of us In this, I must
admit. e went nil through tills mar
ket house and then walked through the
little streets around the outside of It,
which are themselves part of the mar
ket, nnd are lined with booths all the
way a rou ml. Just like little bits ot
stores. In them are sold butcher's
meat, like mutton and beef and pork
all dressed so cleanly and prettily, und
further on ure shawls of Welsh wool
und woolen rugs und blankets, which,
from the feeling of them, one would
think would outlast u century, or fifty
years, at least.
Some l ine knitted Goods.
Then there are Welsh yarns and slm.
ply beautifully knitted woolen goods,
and everything so remarkably cheap,
There are the black and white and
black and red Welsh plaids to be found
here, too, and basket-ware also of very
clever workmanship. As I passed by

strong, big shoes, or boots, and she
wore dark woolen hose, very thick ones
I should say an eighth or a quarter
of an inch thick, so fuzzy and porous
is tne wool. Above this was her black
nd red plaid flannel oetticoat. which
did not reach to the top of her boots,
and over this petticoat was a sort of
snorter black skirt whlcn was pinned
dbck like fan apron over-skirt, and
made her look very bulky and heavy,
to my unaccustomed eyes. She had
on a sort of white waist, linen, I sup
pose, over It a black and white plaid
shawl folded Quaker fashion across
the chest. As the plaids of tills shawl
were an inch sauure. and the dear old
lady herself was a magnificent, large,
muscular specimen of humanity, you
may know the effect was very impos
ing, to say the least.
An Immense Pot-Uat.
But to uroceed to the climax. She
had a white cap on, which came
down over her ears, the ruche forming a
sort of frame or halo, for the face, and
then over this cap wus an immense
black silk pot-hut, fully u foot or fif
teen inches high. Oh, but it was high!
afterward saw some others, but they
were not so high as hers, and they were
on more insignificant looking women,
too, so I suppose she felt justified In
wearing such an Immense hat, because
she herself was so big and handsome.
I shall always be glad 1 saw that wo
man. As 1 just said, we afterward saw
other costumes, but they were not so
Irreproachable as hers. We passed some
fish-women selling cockles, on our way
out of this wonderful market, nnd one
of our party bought some. We had
tnem ror supper and liked them very
much. They were the first ones I had
ever eaten.
It has not gotten cold yet over here,
for which we are all devoutly thankful,
though we could do with a little less
ain. The fall has set in now, I am
afraid, nnd we can expect nothing but
rain from now on till winter, they tell
me. The Salvation army of this place
is marching along down the street

to find them over here, but when, upon
reflection, I remembered that England
Is the home of that organization, I did
not much wonder at the large and
splendidly drilled squads I have met
doing missionary work all over here,
even In small towns. In Swansea, Car
diff, Pont-y-Pridd. Llanelly and cities
of that size, they are very numer
ous, und seem to do some really effec
tive work. 1 slopped one day in Swan
sea and listened to one of their cap
tains, a young lady, who was preaching,
or rather talking, to a crowd of people
In the street, and her appearance,
speech and manner, all proclaimed edu
cation and refinement, and 1 thought,
from her harrangue, that she must ba a
pi-'Hty brainy girl, too. But I must
stop e ft short here, I am going to run

lady from Treforest, and we expect to

Some of "the Abuses W hich lluve De
veloped of l ate.
From tho Philadelphia Press.
i'lie history of naturullzution in tills
country is an Interesting one. The llrst
congress under the present form of
government took cognizance of the mat
ter and passed in 1W a law which re-
lUired a residence of two years before
an alien could become a citizen. In
17!)u the term of probation was Increased
to live years, and in l"as, inspired by a
fear of foreign influence In American
politics, the term of probation was still
further extended to fourteen years. But
the latter law did not remain in force
long. D urlng the administration of
Jefferson the time was again reduced
live years and a Residence of three years
required before a declaration of inten
tions to become a citizen was made, but
tills residence requirement was re
duced to two years in is:'4. Later
changes in the laws while not reducing
the time limit huve tended to make
them Inconsistent and contradictory
and to open loopholes for fraud.
The abuses that huve grown up are
patent to every one. Regular factories
for the manufacture of citizens are set
up in large cities just before election
and the lowest dregs of the population
of Kurope are Invested with the priv
ilege of suffrage. The Democratic party
in Boston, New York and Chicago de
pend largely for their continuance in
power on the number of citizens they
can turn out of the naturalization mill
during the few days before election.
One of the witnesses before the Lexow
committee sitting in New York testified
how he was Instructed to obtain na
turalizations. He was furnished with
a letter to a Tammany judge saying:
"Please naturalize all hands as quickly
as possible, and oblige," and was told
to get all the men he could, that it did
not matter how long they had been in
this country and that they would not
be asked any questions."
Such loose naturalization methods
are a menace to American suffrage that
cannot be Ignored. This cheapening of
citizenship is a disgrace und a shame.
Every traveling American feels hu
miliated when he finds in London and
Paris nnd other large Kuropean cities
hundreds of men who boast of their
success In getting naturalized after a
few weeks residence in America, vot
ing and then returning to Europe with
the money In their pocket for which
they sold their votes. The priceless
privilege for which native Americans
have to wait twenty-one years Is thrust
as the cheapest of gifts upon indigent
A few efforts have been made to check
the evil, such as protests In congress
and at public meetings and by the ac
tiou of conscientious Judges, lint the
problem is too large to be treated by local
action. It must be treated by congress
or concert of action among the states
must be hud. The bill introduced in
congress by Governor-elect Outes, of
Alabama, goes to the marrow of the
matter. It refuses naturalization to
liens convicted of crime and avowed
anarchists and requires a residence of
one year in the state and five years In
the United States previous to applica
tion for citizenship and confines the
right to grant naturalization to the
higher state and United States courts,
This would go far towards remedying
the evil. But If this bill cannot be
passed then there should be united ac
tion among the states and the scandal
stopped of seeing aliens who have sim
ply declared their Intentions voting by
the side of native born citizens in fif
teen states of the Union

Of all the coming cundldutes;
The points where each olio's amiss
And thumps the floor for emphusls
Of politics and all Its Ills,
The tariff and the labor bills
Ho talks.
Lot Tabby's dreams change In a trjee,
Another cat has caught the mice!
.Another cut the yellow birds!
Chatterlm loud their silly words,
F'om out the nests that hiimr so low,
'Tls but In dreams they hung Just so
(Cat's I'reams).
Lo! Tabby's fur llles quickly up;
"i'is hard to take the bitter cup,
She spits, she growls, she makes such
Asks Curly Head, who drops her toys,
Amazed at such seemly tricks:
"Is Tabby talking politics,
Like papa?"

"I have ruined a half dozen pair of
white shoes this summer," writes a
bright young acquaintance to this de
partment, "and yesterday I Just sat
down and had a hearty cry when I
came home; I had been caught In a ter
rible shower, and there! my new white
shoes were all muddyi and ruined, I
think, beyond reparation. Now, do tell
me if there is any remedy, for papa says
I Bhan't buy another pair of these 'ridi
culous shoes and they are so stylish,
you know." Now, if you are a sensi
ble girl, you will not worry your father
about the matter, but ask your drug
gist for a dime's worth of pipe clay;
put a little in a dish, dry, and with an
old tooth or nailbrush, which has not
lost its stiffness, brush the shoes hard;
but always the same way as the grain
of the leuther, or It will make them
rough. Another way is to rup with
deodorized benzine llrst, and then put
on a coat of pipe clay and let it remain
over nlgit.
To clean the pretty plaster casts that
are often as artistic as the costlier
ones, make a thick paste starch cold,
of course nnd spread It on the east
with a brush. After it dries, remove it
by tapping the cast slightly, and then
rubbing with a dry clean cloth.
You can clean paint brushes that are
dried full of paint by putting them lu an
old tin can of coal oil. Let them souk
several hours, and if they huve been
neglected for some time It may take a
day or two. Plenty of patience and
petroleum will accomplish it.
Perhaps you urei getting ready to put
up your stoves, and are In despair
about the smoky mica in the doors. Slip
it out and put it to soak in a dish of
vinegar for a few hours, then remove
and polish with a soft dry cloth. You
will find it us bright as ever.
The cleaning of sponges Is as a rule
not carefuly attended to, a fact much to
be regretted, as nothing is so liable to
propagate microbes as a dirty sponge.
It should always be rinsed after use
in clean, hot water, to which a liberal
pinch of borax has been added, knead
ing it with the knuckles, squeezing well
and placing it on the window-sill to
dry in the sunshine, or hanging It up
where the air can freely circulate about
it. Sponges should never be left In a
bag while wet. Slimlness may be re
moved by soaking for twenty-four
hours In a couple of pints of hot water
lu which an ounce of carbonate of soda
ordinary washing soda has been dis
solved. Sponges in constant use, es
pecially small face sponges, swarm
with bacteria, and on that account
should be thrown away or used for
some household cleaning purpose after
three or four months use.
Irons are pretty sure to gather rust
this damp weather and cause a good
deal of bad temper in the laundry. Heut
them hot, says the Washington Star,
men run tnem quite forcibly over a
flannel cloth that hus a llberul sprink
ling of salt on it.- This will remove
every bit of the rust be sure and rub
the edges also then run the iron over
a greased cloth, or a cloth that has a
little white wax or beeswax on It, then
treat it to a vigorous rubbing on a
perfectly clean white cloth. They will
trouble you no more till next time.
Change the oil in your lamps quite
often if you use them infrequently. 1
don't Know why it Is, but 1 do know
that It is a fact that when the oil re
mains a week in a lamp that has not
been used In that time It gets to smell
ing old and rancid, und will scent the
whole house. Constant vigilance is the
price of a sweet smelling coal oil lamp.
It Is a long way ahead of whale oil dips,
but Is quite as far removed from the
ideal of perfection in Illumination.
Motives of economy should lead to the
often shaking of carpets, for the dust
and dirt that gets ground into them
wears them out more than any other
agency of destruction. Carpets thut
are a long time fastened to the Moor
without shaking get to smell musty
and moldy, too. They should be taken
up every spring and falllf not oftener.
A rich and artistic hanging for the
doorway of a room that has the floor
covered by an eastern rug of strong
coloring is made of wide horizontal
bands of corduroy, the edges slightly
overlapping, and covered where they
Join with rows of tine. Hat, nnd vary
narrow gold braid. The bands of cor
duroy may range from a dark to n light
shade of one color, or be of a number of
shades that harmonize with each other
and the coloring in the rug.
In Chicago an ingenious colored wo
man hus guaranteed herself a com
fortable income by organizing a dish
washing circuit. She goes regularly
three Units a day to twenty neighbor
ing houses and washes the dishes of a
family of three for 15 cents a week.
washes them clean, without breakage
and without walking off with them.
As Colonel Sellers would say, there are
millions in it. What would local house
wives not give for a dish-washing cir
cuit in Scranton?
A good cologne water Is made of a
half pint deoderlzed alcohol, thirty
drops each of oil of lemon, oil of laven
der, oil of bergamot nnd orange-flower
water. Cork and shake well.
You may clean soiled gloves ot home
quite as well as they are done for you at
the shops If you follow this plan: Pour
naphtha into a bowl and wash the
glove In it out as If It were a cloth, und
with another part of it rub every part
of the kid softly but thoroughly. All
the dirt will be thus rubbed away, and
the gloves will come out next to new
In appearance, while there Is very little
odor to naphtha, bud as benzine is.
