NOVEL PROGRAMME AT EXCELSIOR CLUB Unique Entertainment Given for Building Fund of New Synagogue. Doll Show and Tombola. A lnttsle doll show, followed by that novel variety of lottery known tis tlio tnmboln. was thu proKintnmc carried out at the Kscclslor Social ;Iuli lust liislit under tln auspices of the Indies of thu Linden street temple, and thoi imjrhly enjoyed and very much of a suivesH It proved. Tito no; proovds were devoted to the buildlM? fund of the now cynaKOKUP and from. a I'n.iii :lal Htandpoiitt as well as from every other, the'resttlts more th-tn exeeeded all anticipation. Tile doll show was a one net panto mime, with musical accompaniment, all but live of tin; dramatic persona?, enaetiim- the role of dolls. This part of the entertainment was in charge of Airs. Albert X. Kramer, and the :-b-fer.ee of any IrroKUlarlty or awfcwaril-lo.-'i, was the Krvtetsc tribute to the ability of the directress. The com mittee in charire of the entire enter tainment was made up of Airs. Sam uel banner, Sirs. It. M. Goldsmith. Mrs. A. X. Kramer. Mrs. J. O. Aolter nmn. Mrs. Hoi. Goldsmith, Alts. Louis Oesttinirer and Mrs. A. Bresehel, and their earnest and industrious efforts were mainly responsible for tl.o af fair's success. Tin- curtain rose promptly tit S'l." o'clock and disclosed the interior of a small, but cosily fitted doll-shop. Several cabinets cunliitniiur tin; var ious prizes of the tombola were in evidence, and larRe draperies of Amer ican Mass formed a splendid back ground. The proprietor or the "Temple lia zanr," as the shop was called, provided to lie Samuel Otis Skinner, as the pro Kramme designated htm, hut who Is heller known to the city at large as Samuel Sumter, l.ouls Spencer 'Levy, and Aineliti liacharach, iinpersoiiatinij an English tourist and wife, wero ushered p bv (he attendant, irvlu Well. They wove acconipaniiid by lit tle .lean Samier, supposedly the In fant dauKhltjr. brouKht to the estab lislunent to pick out a doll The proprietor ol' the shop then brouahl in one by one the human dolls, who. impersonated by "fail wotneii and brave men." proved of considerable more interest than ordi nary puppets, Each doll was wound up by the propiletor, and to appropri ate music played by Mrs. .7. O. Acker man, went throitfili a number of fancy steps. .Miss Nellie Kramer lnolu-d charming-, and made a winsome "Lady Hubble" doll, and Miss IJose Worm .'rr as "Kntherine Sehottlsche," looked as thoiiKh she had Jual blown in from I'Yuukl'ori-on-lhe-lthini'. Aliss Helen AVormscr, as a talklnt French doll, was very clever, and the same ern be said of A'iss Anna Koos, who did a graceful dunce as a Spanish doll, "Ulin Carmeticlta." .Miss Harriet Prlesen was a pretty baby doli, and Miss Itose Ciallen, as Topsy.with lovely kinky hair and a very dusky complex Ion, scored one of 1 he greatest hits of the eVenlliK', .Miss Ksther .Moses was attired in a lmtidHouiii bridal (jowii, and presente.l a stately appearance, and Miss Paiilliu Goldsmith was an Ideal (.elsha Rlrl, In lier Jnpaneso cosuime, as the "Peat I of Asia." The ntali) dolls were there In num ber, Jolly, rotund Hoi Goldsmith and the Hrown brothers, Gits and Ike. Mr. Goldsmith was wheeled onto tlio staffo, and his chubby face beamed out from a mass of white whiskers with the usual Jocular look attributed to Santa, riiius, which was the polo assigned him. Ike Hrown was a Krlunluir, painted clown, Willi a jaekknlfo movement which evoked roars of laughter, and his yoiiitKCr brother skilfully enacted tlte passive, rolo of "(laps Fredorlekson Geblasen," a soldier of renown. All of lite performers did splendidly, and besides thu dolls, 100 much cannot bo said of thu work of Miss llacliarach, Mr. Levy, Mr, Hamtep and uttlo .lean Sumter, irvlu Well did well In a rolo which did not afford sreat opportun ities. Tlio grand Haute, la which thu dolls eamo to llfo anil perform a nilnuut, was very cfuvurly executed. At tho close of tho doll show, tliote was a wild rush for chances in thu tombola, and during 'the remainder of thu ultjlit refreshments were served, and a tlmu of Beneral social enjoyment spent. The tombola was the cause of a dual of amusement, and various guess intf contests, fortunu-tellers' booths, etc., also contributed to tho entertain ment. There were a larse number of out of the city guests present. SCREAMED AND FELL TO FLOOR 1 DRAMATIC WAY EDITH POND RECEIVED HER SENTENCE. When Judge David Cameron Con signed Her to tho Eastern Peniten tiary for Three Years She Cried Out nnd Appeared to Swoon In Falling Her Head Struck Against the Bench and Sho Was Rendered Un consciousTried to Commit Sui cide in County Jail. ISdlth Pond was yesterday tnornlni; returned RUllly of robbery by tho Jury to which the ease was given Wednes day afternoon and was at onco sen tenet d by Judge David (.'ameron, of Tioga county, before whom she wns tried, to three years In the Eastern penitentiary, and $100 fine. As soon as the Judge pronounced the words she uttered a sillied cry ami fell forward on tho stenographer's desk and then toppled over sideways, striking her head against the base board of tho Judge's bench with her head, it was the opinion or the Jail olllclals that rIiu was shamming when she fell, but there was no shamming about It after sho struck her head. She was carried Into the law library, whore, after a time, nhe revived. AVhen she was committed to await trial on the charge of robbing D. S. Johnson, of which she was yesterday convicted, a young colored man. Ar thur Morris, with whom she lived, was arrested and given thirty days largely on general principles. About a week ago ho bud occasion to pass the gate that leads to the women's corridor in the jail anal she called after him: "Go to !" was his unfeeling reply. This greatly affected her and .a short time afterwards sho was discovered trying to hang herself in her cell. On the trial she said Morris is her husband and a prtifesslonal gambler by occupation. Ho denies tho relation ship. Chief of police Holding- has received infoiinatlon from tho police authori ties of Indianapolis, whore the Pond woman formerly lived, which shows that sho had a very bad record. Sho was arrested In that city on several occasions for larceny and prostitution for which sho ha3 served several short terms in prison. She was known there its Ycager. Tho police of Cleveland, Ohio, with whom Chief Robling also communi cated, knew rhe woman's record, but had nothing speelllc agtiinst her.

Again ho refused to il them go, saying it was their duty to try nnd reconcile and har monize tho differences between them. One of the jurors, Honjamln Castles, said he thought It was impossible for them to agree, but the judge decided lo give them another opportunity to came together. An echo of the killing, on Xov. 2.1, of Mrs. Alary Itose, bj .Mrs. Josephine Huvclac'iue was the calling up of tho cases charging the dead woman with malicious mischief and fundi) lo entry and detainer.

About all of yesterday was con sumed with tho trlnl or the case of Alainanzo Porter and Alonzo Porter, wlto i'ro charged with receiving stolon goods, buying junk from min ors and neglect Ins to keep a record of purchases of junk.
