s, Irving's First Impulse
Irving was a rare combination of a
man of genius and a man of business.
In preparing a-play for the stage he
spared no money. Of that he was lav
ishly free. What was even more es
sential to success, he di'l not spare
himself, taking infinite pains in re
spect of the smallest detail. He was
for fully a quarter of a century, re
warded with phenomenal success. Brum
Stoker told me that from the opening
of his management to the day of his
death lie received from a delighted pub
lic a simi of over two millions sterling.
By his fourth tour in the United States
ho drew into the treasury one liundrel
and twenty-three thousand pounds.
Yet, owing to a sudden tu«n im the tide
of fortune, he died comparatively poor.
This was largely the result of reck
less generosity. Even the accumulation
of disasters that followed on bis acci
dent on the aight of the production of
"Richard HI.J' (in December, 1896)
could not have* affected the amount of
saving possible had he been inclined to
adopt the habit during the height ol'
his financial prosperity. His first im
pulse ever was to give. ; — From The

Lawrence Barrett's Romeo

1 friend, Hdwin Booth, met at their club
in New York. Barrett, after brief greet

. ery appearance of remembering a pres*-
. ing engagement.
1 "Halloa! Where are you off tort"
' Booth askod.
"To a rehearsal," said Barrett.
r " What's the play?"
| Barrett said it was "Romeo and
"And what part do you take?"
Booth asked, in sudden access of inter
"Thore is only one part for me in
the play," Barrett said, drawing him
self up in lofty indignation.
"Oh, ah, yes," said Booth. "I know
! —the Nurse."
The angered tragedian stood forth in
haughty silence, and did not speak to
1 Booth for two days.—From the Strand

CONSIDER FOUNDING COLLEGE
D. A. R. National Board Is Divided
Over Advisability of More
Washington, April 26. —The Nation*
al Board of Management of the Daugh
ters of the American Revolution met
hereto-day to consider the foundation of
a national university by the society.
For this purpose the old John Paul
Jones home in North Carolina lias been
offered, together with certain sums
from the State and county contingent
upon contributions from the society.
The daughters are said to bo divided
over the advisability of undertaking
this scheme, many of whom believe it
would be better to take over the es
tate and preserve it as a patriotic relic.
Mrs. William Cummings Story, of
New York, the president general, pre
sided at to-day 's meeting.
Trenches—in Peace and War
On the field, General Joffre, who in
private life loves to potter about the
garden of his house in Auteuil, accom-
pany his wife on shopping expeditious,
who is very fond of a musical evening
with his daughters, Marcelle and An
nette, who have on occasions persuaded
their father to exercise his bass voice,
and who might often be seen in the
morning riding with his girls in the
Bois >de Boulogne, is, although amiable
and genial to his intimates, imperturb
able, arbitrary, and assertive, says a
writer in "The Strang Magazine."
Perhaps one of hiis most curious
characteristics is that he will tolerate
1 no interference, so far as the exigen
cies of the situation allow, with the
systematic, personal habits which he has
| followed for many years, and to which
he attributes not a little of his good
. health. This is illustrated by an inci
dent which happened during the re
treat from Mons.
Late one night at Joffre's headquar
, ters a Staff officer arrived with a very
• urgent dispatch. The Comniander-in
; Chief had- retired, and the officer was
, informed that on no account whatever
! must the General be disturbed. "But.
: he must be roused,'' said the Staff
officer, "for a whole division is in dan
' ger of being surrourfHed." ''The Gen
• eral," came back the reply, "has giv
en orders that iu no circumstances is
j he to be awakened before 6 a. rrt. Fur
- thermore, there, is po need to do So, foT
• he has left all the necessary instruc
' tions for possible emergencies in en
' velopes marked one, two and three."
r The Staff officer on duty thereupon
i, j opened the dispatch, selected envelope
, Number two, which met thie case, and
;• instructions were immediately tele
i graphed to the commander who had
, sent his dispatch, and who was pronipt
> ly reprimanded next morning by Joffre,
; when he haul heard what had taken
. place, for using the motor instead of
- the telegraph.
1 He endeavors to follow, as far as
t circumstances will permit, the .same
- regular mode of life to which he has
been accustomed almost since his ma^
. riage. Every morning previous to the
war he would be up. and dressed, hav
ing previously hod a vigorous ten min
utes in a room next to'his bedroom,
t which is fitted up as a miniature gym
. nasium, ending with a cold shower*
i bath. An hour later hq might be stfen
j trotting briskly on horseback through
- the leafy bridle-paths of the Boiee dtt
. Boulogne, sometimes in company with
. other officers, but more often with one
of his daughters, followed at a "discreet
' distance by his orderly.
Social functions never appeal to him.
And if disinclined for music in his
leisure moments he would turn to his
| books and Bpend an hour with military
works or the fiction of Hugo, Balzac,
' Dumas and Dickens —the latter being
. a great favorite. Or if friends dropped
in he might take a hand at bridge or
! whist. The simple habits which he
- imbibed in his youthful days at Rive
saltes still cling to him. Hie only sur
f viving sister, Mme. Artus, says that
even after he became a geneftl the
i Commander-in-Chief insisted on remain
-3 ing to his friends plain Joseph Joffre.
i He made a practice of paying frequent
visits to the family home at Rivesaltes,
and one of his great pleasures during
his brief holidays at home were long
card games iu the evening with his
® father an 4 friends.
A fnvorite game was "mouille," and
it was during one of those games, Mme.
Artns tellM us, that he explained to his
father how to dig slanting trenches on
property as a protection against
the ravages of spring rains. "You
should, father," he said, "dig slant
ing lines of trenches across your farm
at Bompas. They will drain the land
aad prevent floods in spring; and i
think I can claim to know something
about trenches," he acfcled, with a
