HI ,!!j 4 church on Monday evening by Miss Agatha Berlc-
Hj'j'; hoel. assisted by Arthur Shepherd and Miss
H: , 1 Anderson, was a brilliant musical success.
!Af Miss Berkhoel has wonderful ability, and critics
jj$ forsee for her a great career. Mr. Shepherd's
r .; work, as usual, was perfect, and Miss Sybil Ander-
Ji son charmed the audience. A large audience was
' ,j in attendance, the affair being given under the
Hl !'''( auspices of the home and educational section of
;t i, ' the Ladies' Literary club.

HI ',, There has breen a slight improvement at the
H ' l i Salt Palace theater the past week, but rare critics
Hf i'i think there is room for more. Sadie Hart does a
Hyir clever stunt, and the others are not as bad as they

Hi j Here's a tale of a blue pencil. It's also a tale
H( ' ' !' of Richard Mansfield, who had been misquoted so
HJ ' ' frequently that in the early days of our friend-
Hf T' ship it was hard to get him to consent to an inter-
HJ9 view for publication. So this plan was formu-
Hn ' ":i lated: After the chat the interview was to be
Hi 1 written and sent to Mr. Mansfield for revision
before being published.
M " i,1 Under those conditions the interview was grant-
W' ed. The chat was put on paper and the manu-
m ; , I j script sent to Mr. Mansfield in a bulky envelope.
1' , I Inclosed a nice new blue pencil, told Mr. Mans-
ii v field I was keeping my word, and for him to kindly
l'! ' j send the revised interview to me before 4 o'clock
.4'.,. that afternoon, inasmuch as I was going out of
' '. town and wanted to see a type proof of it b6foro
HW 'i; ; Ileft.
M U Four o'clock passed. At quarter after four I
if'ijij' grew impatient. At half past, more so; at 5,
flB I j H worried. I waited until 6 o'clock, and then know-
H "' j' ing that he always went to the theater at 7, penned
j'i'!': i' a note to him, calling his attention to the fact that
ijjta ; I had sent him a blue pencil to revise the inter-
ji "i ' view, and to please "give the manuscript to bearer.
HiVlrffi The office boy returned In due time minus the
K ;. j ' j manuscript. Instead, Mr. Mansfield had given him
H K, : '' a note. It was short and to the point. It said:
HB;Yi ' "Dear Sir Received your blue pencil and have
HRifih i used all of it. Please send me another.
Hi : !, RICHARD MANSFIELD."

From Bulwer to Bellew, or "The Lady of
Bulwer Lytton's time -honored drama "The Lady
of Lyons" was produced last night at the Garrick
Tlieati'e, with Miss Mary Manncring as Pauline and
Kyrle Bellew as Claude Melnotte. 'ihe audience was
large, enthusiastic and plainly entertained.
That no small share of the entertainment came
from the play itself was evident after the second
act. The drama moved, grew absorbing, till one
woman in the orchestra announced, sotto voce, her
dis6ovcry: "Why, it's a pretty good play ,if it is
old fashioned!" It was excellently staged, well
rehearsed and rapidly handled. The acting of the
leading characters, however, in some respects ful
filled the requirements, in other respects fell short.
Miss Manncring certainly justified JL-auline's title
of the Beauty of Lyons. She was charming and
she was womanly. When she sat with Claude on
the bench in the garden and he told her in blank
verse to slow music of the beauties of his palace
at Como her head sank back upon his shoulder
slowly and she yielded so sweetly and so delicately
to his words that neither the eye nor the imagina
tion could desire anything better. And in the scenes
in her husband's cottage, when she learned, of her
betrayal, she played with power and genuine emo
tion. But where was that haughtiness of Pauline
which had to be meted? Miss Aiannering left a
little the impression that she was won uefore the
Mr. Bellew was not able to resist the chance the
language of Bulwer so often gave him to fall into
painful cadences and that fashion of speech which
men like himself have caused to be branded "the
atrical". When a man has betrayed a woman into
marriage under false pretenses, and, repentant, is
standing over her, trying to explain, the moment
is hardly suited to gesticulatory declaration. The
dramatic climaxes of the third and last acts he
Mrs. W. G. Jones, as Widow Melnotte, a part she
played over fifty years ago, won deserved appaluse
for the excellent work. The curtain calls for the
two principals were numerous. Once Mr. Frank
McKee, who managed the production, was led forth
smiling. Fortunately he did not hear the query
of a young woman to her escort, "Is that the
author?" New York Tribune.

WOMEN AT THE WORLD'S FAIR.
In discussing the probable scope of duties of the
Board of Women Managers of the World's Fair
at St. Louis, Mrs. Helen Boice-Hunsicker, the mem.
ber from Pennsylvania, says: "I agree with a com
missioner from a western state, who thinks the women
could give the best service to the Exposition by mak
ing suggestions for tlie finishing touches of tho dif
ferent exhibits, to insure an artistic effect. Be
sides this," she said. "I believe we should put on our
best clothes, keep our hair curled and play the host
ess. There is a strong feeling in the National
World's Fair Commission from whom tho Women's
Board of Managers get their appointments and in
structions, in favor of having a building at the fair
dedicated to American womanhood and home. I
think it is a splendid idea, for it would show the
foreigners, especially, who believe that the American
women walk slipshod over their husbands, that the
men of merica really have great respect and admir
ation for the women."
