One night only, July, 21s'..
Mr. A 1 G. Feild has brought togethor for
tho season the best aggregation of his pro
fessional career, and tho entertainment
g'ven by his minst'els at the Metropolitan
last night received from tho lanm and en
thusiastic audience a generous and deser
ved recognition. The generous reception
bestowed was not, in tho strict sense ol
tho term, the result of home pride and for
the reason that Mr. Field is a resident of
Columbus, but because has gathered a
combination of artists who fu'nish about
all that is first-class in his lino, and they
also havo the faculty and training which
puts the performance on in an original
manner without follow iug out any of tho
beaten paths. Tho reception, however,
was nothing morothan it should havo been,
considering tho merit which Mr. Field has
called together for what is bound to bo his
most successltil season beforo tho amuso
nnnt loving public. The parade which
was given yesterday attracted about as
much attension as an ordinary circus, and
had a tendency to givo a forecast of what
was to be expected at the Metropolitian
last night. The arrangement of the pro
gram was in good taste, and although no
intermission occnred after tho certain rose,
tho presentation of tho numbers was so
varied that no one became tired. 'Of Mr.
Field himself it is enough to state that he
sustained the reputation ho has earned to
its usual standard of excellence. Mr.
Louis Steadman has a cultured baritone
voice, and rendered his number with spirit
and expression. Mr. Wall acquited him
self in a manner to call out merited ap
plause, and the samo may bo said of Mr.
Will G. Mack Mr. Joo Lowes gave ono of
tho host exhibitions of contortion ever seen
in this city, and Messrs. Howe, Wa'l and
McLcod gave a very entertaining mnsical
number. The entertainment as a wholo
furnished a novel and Jpleasing entertain
ment, and is in many respects an agreeablo
departure from modern minstrelsy. A
matinee will be given this afternoon, and
this evening will conclude the engagement,
and they start from horo on a long tour of
the west. Ohio State Journal, Columbus,

peopele were trying to break into his house,
and left it and sought the protection of
policeman Skillman. who seeing that he
was laboring under a delusion advised him
to go to a hotel, and went with him to
Nixon's Home.
Mr. Nixon got up and gave Evth a bed
on the 4th floor, where other men were
sleeping, but he made so much noise that
the other men complained, and Eyth was
given a room on the third floor. Nixon
wont to his bed, but was again called out
by a noise, and found Eyth coming out of
a vacant room on the second floor, with a
pistol in his hand which he pointed at
Nixon. but Nixon "ared him into going
back into the r.iom and lying down upon
the bed, «-hen he locked the door and
went out, but a few minutes after ho
heard a crash, and found that E.vth had
Hung himself out of ,the window,

hours, and then his body was taken in

Death of Mrs. Hamilton.
A Butler physician wa* ha. tiljr called to
the home of Jame.-t Hamilton, near Sunset
station Tuesday night, and upon arriving
there found Mrs. Hamilton lying on the
floor and in the agonies of death Irorn poii
oniug. At about S o'clock that evening
Mrs. Hamilton had gone outside the honse
and taken something that had caused vio
lent purging and vomiting, she also par
took of some cold tea that she had prepar
ed. She expressed a desi r e to live till
next day.
When the physician arrived life was al
most extinct.

A Chance for Composers
In order to stimulate American com
position, The iMdies, Home Journal has
made public an attractive -cries of liberal
prizes for the best origiual musical com
position by composers resident in the
I'nited States and Canada. Tho prizes
call for a wait*, a piano composition, a
pleasing ballad and a popular song, an
anthem and the four best hymn tunes.
The competition is open until N'ovember
Ist, next. The opportunity has an addi
tional attractiveness sinco the prize com
positions will form part of a series for
which Strauss is writing an original waltz,
and Charles Gounod and Sir Arthur Sul
livan each an original song.
—" H'orhU Columbian Exposition Il
lustrated for July." — To say this number
is the most interesting, beautiful and valu
able of all the numbers so far issued is
putting the fact very mildly. Indeed it is
the crown jewel of the seventeen artistic
gems—the seventeeu numbers so far pub
lished. This month the frontispiece is ft
full page, half-tone, copper plate engrav
ing of the Hon. M. H. De Young of San
Francisco, third Vice President of the
Worlds' Columbian Commisson. It con
tains many leading articles of paramout
importance to all those interested in the
growth and development of the Exposition.
We notice especially '-The Nation wishes
It," setting forth very strongly that the
Exposition is not only a national enter
prize but should be dignified by substan
tial National support. It leaves no ground
for any belief other than that the Amer
ican people so view this great enterprise.
Thore are two very valuable and timelj
articles entitled, " Sunday Opening vs.
Closing," and ''Sunday Opening at the
World's Fair.'' The latter is by Mrs.
Frances E. Bagley of Michigan" Lady
Manager-at-large and widow of the late
Gov.Bagley. She has arrayed her argu
ments in an interesting and convincing
manner, and her article sheds considerable
light on the satisfactory solution of this
much mooted question. There is a sched
ule of the "Official Traffic Arrangements
for the Exposition," including tho rail
roads and the trans oceanic steamship
lines. This article is of great importance
to intending exhibitors and \ isitors. very
conspicuous among the artistic features
are engravings, nearly all full page, of
statuary for the adornment of the principal
buildings. Thero are two excellent full
page engravings of the Washington
btate building and of the Maine State
building, with many photographs of the
Stato board managers of these two States.
There is also a double page engraving of
the Mines and Mining Building, the first
of the irreat department buildings to be
compht'd. Altogether, too much can not
be said in praise of this admirable number.
In a more pleasing and definite manuer,
by means of it, than ever before can wo
appreciate the great importance and tho
educational influenco of tho Worlds Col
umbian Exposition. From first to last
thore will bo sixty numbers of this journal.
