your opinion of farce comedy. The stick
lers for Art (with a capital A, if you
please) frown on farce comedy. I belong
to the Philistines who believe that thrtMi
nets of rip-roaring, undeniable fun will do
more real good in the world than sixteen
presentations of Richard Ill's gloom or
the wickedness and passion ofVirginius.
There is as much art in a good joke as
there is in a good tragedy.
And a majority of Americans know it,
too, for the farce comedy is the most popu
lar form of amusement on the stage today.
Moreover, it always has been, though
theatrical writers beem to forget tho cir
cumstance. The modern writers of farce
comedy can point to tho most famous play
wrights of the past as their predecessors in
the line. And towering high at tho begin
ning of this lino is Shakespeare.
The first farce comedy of which we havo
any record came from the pen of the im
mortal bard of Avon. "TheTamingof tho
Shrew" was the original as well as the best
farce comedy. "Tho Twelfth Night" might
also be safely named in the class.
While, of course, tho farce comedies of
today cannot be looked upon as artistic
equals of Shakespeare's work, they are cal-
t-&1tef culated to mako

And, fortunately for the farce comedian
and our own digestions, we are willing to
pay for the privilege of being convulsed.
That is the secret of the farco comedy's
success. It is made up of a jumble of
tilings which wc all know about. Into tho
mouths of familiar characters are put
funny jokes. Perhaps they are familiar,
too. We do not object.
The Irishman in "The City Directory"
looks at us solemnly across the footlights.
He strides to a tablo on the other side of
the stage and grasps a lamp. One of the
actors asks anxiously
What are you going to do ith that lamp?
I'm going to throw it out.
Why, does it smote?
Sure, I dunno whether it smokes or chews, but
out it poes.
And we langh uproariously.
In "A Texas Steer" we have a parody on
American politics and a plot. The latter
is unusual in fare ccomedy. Maverick
Bninder, a Te.xas cattle king, is elected to
congress through tho efforts of his daugh
ter and friends without his knowledge and
while ho is absent. When he returns he. Is
dumfounded and refuses to Ferve. Hi
loving constituents force him at the point
of a pistol to agree to go to Washington.

money for the campaign, remarks art
lessly: "He came by his election bonetly every

It i3 impossible to make the things ap

crazy when they are seen on the stage.
Tho surroundings, perbonal appearance of

before and after have more to do with
making a stage joke funny than do the
In "A Rag Baby" Old Sport's great
anxiety to "shake the hand that shook
Sullivan's" is not funny in itself; it is
funny because it is a quiet jab at the men
who worship prizefighters.
A successful farce comedy must have in
it somewhere one or two thing3 like that,
which will stick in tho minds of the peo
ple who sec it as burs stick to their
clothes. A dozen of the current bitd of
lang have originated in that way, the lat
est and perhaps best known at present be
ing "He's not in it!" Aunt Bridget's "Oh,
by gosh I" will rankle in the brain of the
Email boy for weeks after tho other parts
of the show have become a very dim mem
ory, and the same might he truthfully said
of a dozen other "catch" words and phrases
evolved by tho writers of farce comedy.
Music, and lota of it, has been considered
an essential of farce comedy until this year
when the "Texas Steer" came out, and in
stantaneously succeeded, with only a darky
quartet in its first act. Xo one who ever
heard the "thieo bums" in "The Brass

will ever forget the rollicking nonensc of
it. And "Razzle-Dazjdo" is only one of a
By the way, tho names which have been
chocn for farce comedies are a comedy by
themselves. "A Rag Bvby,""A ITolo in
tho Ground," "A Brass Monkey," "A Tin
Soldier," "The City Directory," "Skipped
by tho Light o' the Moon," "Mis Mc
Ginty," "Hot "Water," "A Texas Steor,"
and "A Trip to Chinatown" are all ex
pressive. By common consent it seems to have
been agreed that it is wholly unnecessary
for the titles of farce comedies to havo any
thing to do with tho piece itself. Tho two
principal writers of this sort of thing,
Charles Hoyt nnd Paul Potter, evidently
aim first at getting a catchy title. Then
they use a thread of plot sometimes a
very slender one to connect a series of
songs, dances and funny situations.
Farce comedy is not an experimental
fad. It has come to stay, and is a healthy
Americanization of the French vaudovillo
and English burlesque.
Tho rn;Hsh Cup.
While still unwilling to race for tho

come out with a new cup of their own,

Royal Victoria Yacht Club is tho donor
I and the cup is valued at $2,500. All races

Admirers of tho manly art are at present

Trice of Eyes In Thl Country.
Thcro is a gentleman in New York,
married and the father of a family, who
has worn an artificial eye for many
years without tho knowledge of any
member of his family. There are many
men and women in public lifo who wear
artificial eyes undiscovered. To do this
of course requires not only wonderful
perfection in tho manufacture of the eye
itself, but also great circumspection on
the part of the wearer, whose vision ia
necessarily limited, and who is liable to
exposure from the occurrences of every
day life. Thero was, until recently, in
New York city, a lady, tho wife of a,
very well known man, who was in the
habit of meeting constantly vary many
persons, anil who went out much in so
ciety, who wore an artificial eye without
Many artificial eyes are imported from
Germany and France, where they are
made almost as cheaply as buttons. In
the district of Thnnugia, in Germany,
eutiro villages of men, women and chil
dren aseist in tho manufacture. The
process is analogous to glass blowing.
Indeed, it is a sort of glass blowing.
The workman site at a table with a gM
jet flame from a blowpipe in front of
him, which gives an intense heat, capable
of melting the glassy substaueo which
forms tho eye. Ho molds tho substance
as easily as the potter would mold clay.
Then tho pupil is put on by tho sntna
process and the colors traced with small
needlea of colored substance, so as to
imitato the delicate tracery of tho eye
ball and pupil.
TUB IJEST EYBS AUE MADK HERE.
When ej'es are made at wholesale tha
workman makes haphazard a vast quan
tity of sizs, shapes ami colors, and it ii
presumed that a dealer can, by keeping a .
largo assortment of throe nrtifioiul nyes,
manage to match the eyes of any cus
tomer. But in practico this proves to b
an exceedingly difficult matter. The
colors and shapes of eyes vary in num
berless variety, and whoro customers
are fastidious and with keen vision ftfr
shades of color it is seldom poseiblo to
suit them with these ready made oyos,
and they are little used in first clans es
tablishments, where perfect work ia
sought regardless of price.
Tho expression "A bully boy with a
glasa eye" denotes a popular error that
false eyes are mnde of glass. Tho fant
is that tho substaueo is more liko china.
About forty years ago an Englishman
named T. J. Davis began to make artifi
cial eyes in Now York by a new pro
cess." He fonnd a spar in Connecticut
which which was peculiarly adapted for
tho mnkmg of artificial oyes, and ho
maintained that, after great rcsoarch in
other parts of the world, no stone could
be found capable of yielding tho earns
results. This spar, to become ductile,
has to bo subjected to an intonso boat
for from thirty-six to forty-eight hours.
Whon thus treated it is roady for
shaping and coloring, and requires
no metallic oxides to work it, anil
