The Globe on the Trains.
The Gloee lias always been supplied to the
newt men on the trains, but at the previous size
encountered difficulties which do not now need
to be recounted. At the present size it ought to
be found everywhere. Parties who cannot in
the future obtain it on the trains or of news
dealers will confer a favor by reporting the mat
ter to this office with particulars.
The enlargement and improved news
facilities of the Globe necessarily involve
an advance in subscription rates. This
advance is quite moderate in comparison
with the increased expense of conducting
the paper. Hereafter the subscription
price of the Globe will be as follows:
Seven issues per week, delivered by carrier,
mail or supplied by newsdealers — ONE DOLLAR
Six issues per week (omitting Sunday) by
mail, as follows:
One mouth, 90 cents; three months, $2.50;
■IX months, $5; twelve months, $18. Postage
is prepaid on all papers sent by mail.

all that is corrupt in party politics, and
the Republican party is thoroughly satu

Tin: FIFTH BIHTMIVT VOXVMNTIOX.
The Fifth District Democratic conven
tion ass mbles in Fergus Falls to-day to
nominate :: candidate for Congress. The
Globe correspondent telgraphs that if Mr.
Frazee declines, the nominee will probably
be Barnum, of Sauk Center. Steams
county. As. Mr. Frazee has been as em
phatic afi language will permit in declining
it can be taken for granted that Mr. Bar
num will be the nominee.
No out will urge any particular objec
tion u> Mr. Barnum personally, but the
making of any nomination is due to the
predominance of the "rock rooted ele
ment in the Democratic party. It
is not likely that any member
of the convention which will nominate
Barnnm to-day, has any serious idea that
he can be elected. He is nominated as a.
matter of form to "keep up the organiza
tion."' Ti.;> might be well enough as a
rule, but the situation in the Fifth district
is peculiar. There are two Republican
candidate*, and the district is so strongly
Republican that they can indulge in this
split and ~till elect one of their men. The
objection to making a nomination is that
one faction of the Republican party has
sought to dictate the policy for the Democ
racy to pursue. The original demand and
urgency for a Democratic campaign in that
district came from the Nelson Republicans
and tin' from the Democrats themselves.
The Nelson gang knew their own rotten
ness. They knew that if the Democrats
were left to choose between the two Re
publican nominees, that Nelson would not
be the man who wonld be selected and
as . the next best move they
concocted the plan of urging the
Democrats to make a straight party fight.
The GxjOBB has expressed the opinion,
which it >ti!l enterains. that some of the
loudest mouthed advocate^ of a nomina
tion were retained by the Nelson gang to
do that work. It was very easy to draw
men into the scheme who were earnest and
honest iv their political conviction,
and the Gut:: is ready to concede that the
Fergus Falls c^nventinn to-day will be
largely composed of gentlemen who are
actuated by a desire for party success. At
the same time the Gloek i,oes back t» \he
to by the old gang who have ruled
the state so long, knowing, too,
that even a triangular contest
does not give an opportunity for Demo
cratic success, it deprecates the pursuance
of any policy which is urged and ordered
by the Nelson-Washburn crowd. It is suf
ficient to know that it is advised .in that
quarter to create distrust and suspicion.
TIIE OPERA HOUSE— "KICHELIEU.*'
Mr. John McCullough and his excellent com
pany last night enacted Butwer's five act play
''Richelieu" to a larger audience than flocked to
the Opera house on the opening night of the
engagement. The east was as follows: . V\ ; :.s

Marion De Lorme .Miss Mittens Willet
It was Mr. McCullough's first rendition of
Richelieu in St. Paul, and it cannot be denied
that he had a fair hearing, for the audience was
a fine one. The asthmatics and squeaky shoes
and squealing babies were not out in full force,
as on "Othello" night. There was a larger per
centage of cultivated people, and the distinction
of winning favor with them seemed an object
worthy the best efforts of every member of the
troupe. The play itself, like every production
of Bulwer's, has in it that which pleases and
tlmt which puzzles. Bulwaer was a great liter
ary light, erudite, scholarly, aesthetic, a trans
lator, a poet, an artist, a dilletaut, a critic
dramatist. But Shakspeare, is more easily
understood than he. To delineate one of Bul
wer's creations what must an actor do I The
popular idea is that he should rant. This is be
cause Bulwer's best-kuwn character, Claude
Melnotte, is usually impersonated by
a ranter, and because Bulwer him
self is a puzzler. It is
therefore a trying ordeal to assume a role in one
of Bulwer's plays. In Richelieu we see a man
upon the edge of life, all but ready to drop in
the grave when we meet him, yet sustained by
the stimulating passions of ambition and re
venge. II cis clothed in holy orders, yet is he
deep in state craft and vile with greedy intrigue
for temporal power. Subtle and unscrupulous,
lie is not a creature to excite the
sympathy of this age and country. Purely a
schemer, he should have the air of a schemer,
and should not rant. Mr. McCullough has
doubtless often been reminded of this, both by
his friendly and his impartial critics. But lie
has not yet reduced his Kichelieu to the super
fine texture of the model. All the world may
not be able to analyze Bulwer's literary plans,
but the mass of humanity knows that the sig
nificance of what a bishop or car
dinal utters does not depend upon
grating thunder-tones of voice. It is the saintly
meekness of his manner combined with the sub
dued sound of his wondrously eloquent words
that makes him awful. If art would place a
cardinal on the stage, it should study a true
copy, of which there is no lack in real life.
Mr- McCullough would have surprised himself
and would have made a greater artistic success
had his coughing been the consequence of a
real cold which had prevented his speaking
abqve a whisper during the entire evening.
A cardinal, aside from his spiritual bearing, is a
super-polished human being, in every respect
the extreme opposite of a giadiator or a soldier.
If, with all due reverence, the names of Father
Burke and Bishop Grace may )>e . mentioned, it
will servo more effectually to illustrate what is
meant. The requirements are that Richelieu
should ba finished externally after the best and
purest living models, no matter what may be the
stilt c of mind and beard attributed
to him by the author. Mr. McCullough
was called before the curtain but once during
the evening, which may or may not have argued
that the star was not doing it all. The company
were afforded a good opportunity to show the
stuff of which they are made, and they im
proved it. Mr. McCullough has shown wisdom
in bringing a good company with him. With
out them it is hard to believe that , every per
formance would have been the grand success
that lias been seen. To-night the play will be
A .Strange Woman.
Some days ago. a woman who gave her
name as Mrs. Clark made a strange com
plaint in the police court against a prom
nent citizen on St. Peter street, charging
that he had mistreated her and struck her.
Her trial showed that there was no truth
in her statements, and the- defendant was
found not guilty. Yesterday the same wo
man, arrayed In a good many good clothes,
went into the police court and demanded
another complaint against somebody. The
unfortunate woman was so much under the
influence of liquor that no attention was
paid to her drunken declarations. Shi
stormed around the municipal courtroom,
shaking her fists in the faces of the officers
and behaving herself in such a manner as
to render it necessary to lock her up. She
was accordingly taken into custody and
removed to the city hall, where she was
placed in a cell. When the door was closed
on her she howled and made a good deal
of racket, but subsequently toned down a

Mention was made yesterday of the tem
porary loss by a mail carrier of a package
of letters with money in them and their
subsequent discovery. There is a little
more to be added to the account and that
is to the manner of the re
turn of the letters. Dr. Day. the
postmaster, as soon as he learned of
the loss set all the police at work, and
called all the carriers from their routes
and set them looking after the package.
While they were thus engaged, and while
Dr. Day was sitting in his office awaiting
the result, in walked a tall stranger and
inquired if the postoffice had met
with a loss, and when informed that
it had. produced a package of letters
which he said he had found on Robert
Street remarking that they were probably
the ones they were looking after. Of course
they were the ones and the doctor very joy
ously received them. ■On inquiry of the
man it was learned that his name was Wil
liam Geldert, of Pictou, Nova Scotia. Dur
ing the conversation with the Dr. he stated
that he had never been subjected to such a
temptation in all his life. He had been
west and was wholly unsuccessful in busi
ness, and being without any means, it was
a sore temptation to appropriate the con
tents of the letters to his own use, but his
good old Scotch blood had saved him. The
Dr. gave him £2."> as some compensation.

[Special Telegram to the Globe.]
Geand Fosks, D. T., Sept. C— The dele
gates all arrived yesterday and caucusing
at once commenced by friends of Hand,
Pettigrew and Raymond. It was found
that j entire north Dakota was straight for
Raymond, and the delegations of south
Dakota divided up between Hand, Petti- 1
grew, Hughes and McMasters, and no
possibility of doing anything without the
aid of the northern portion, which stands
solid and unbroken for the man upon
whom they have agreed, John B. Raymond,
of Fargo. The convention was called to
older at noon. to-day by Chairman Walsh.
W. T. Ball, of Fargo, was made temporary
chairman, and Wm. T. Burk, of James
town, secretary. The only business done
was to appoint a committee on credentials
consisting of nine, five of whom are north
Dakota men, two Pettigrew and two Hand
men. Adjourned until 2in the afternoon.
The convention reassembled at the speci
fied time. The committee on credentials
was not ready to report and the conven
tion adjourned until 8 in the evening.
10 p. m. — Everything is quiet now, and
the delegates are scattered over the city.
The convention reassembled at 8 o'clock
this evening and the credentials commit
tee not being ready to report adjourned
till nine to-morrow morning. So far but
one county, has been acted upon, that of
Aurora, with three delegates, which was
thrown out entirely. A rumor was circu
lated all day that Pettigrew would with
draw in favor of Raymond to beat Hand.
The credentials committee is hard at work
with closed doors, and it is said will not be
ready to report until to-morrow evening.
Hand. Pettigrew, Gov. Ordway, Captain
Hughes and McMasters are here, while
Raymod remains in Fargo. The prob
abilities are that Raymond will get the
nomination, as north Dakota is united on
him, while the south is all. split up.

THE VERMONT ELECTION.
Buklisgton, Vt., Sept. 6. Election re
turns come in slowly beyond precedent,
much less than half the state having been
heard from. Returns indicate a Repub
lican vote of 60,000 and a Democratic vote
of 14,000. The vote is very light. In the
Second district only fifty-one towns have
been heard from. Less than half of these
give Poland, 7,488; Fletcher, r»,4f>2: Grant
and scattering. 2,802. Indications are
there i 9 no choice, which will necessitate a
second election. In the First district
Stewart is elected by 10,000 majority.
White River Junction, Vermont, Sept. 6.—
The election of the Republican nominees on the
state ticket and the congressional ticket in the
Twelfth district is assured by a handsome ma
jority. Returns liave been revived from 174
towns, which gives Barstow, (Rep.) 29,262,
Eston (Dem.) 11,743, Martin (Greenbacker) and
Scattering 1,414, which give* Barstow a ma
jority over all of 16,438, with 66 towns
not heard from. The same towns gave Farn
ham (rep) in 1880, 37,766; Phillips idem), 17,,
807; Heath (g'backl and scattering, 12,826-
Farnham's majority over all being 18,573, a de

seven towns in the First district give Stewar;

Kidder (g'back) and scattering, 462,
giving Stewart a majority of

Returns from ninety-seven towns in the Second
district giv<» Poland I Rep. I, 10,3:5!; Fletcher
I Dem. |, 5,094; Dunbar ( Greenback I and scatter
ing 937; Grant, 3,033, giving Poland a majority
over all of 1,280, with 33 towns not reported.
These towns arc mostly in Essex, Caledonia and
Orleans. Returns to-d::y have decreased
Poland's majory below that given last night about
5vM) votes. Gravo doubt.', are entertained by
Poland's friends regarding his election. Town
representatives ni 166 towns give 163Republic:ins,
31 Democrats and 4 no choice.
This already gives the Democrats nearly doub

The multitudes of strangers who thronged
the streets of the city Tuesday night and
filled the hotels and' lodging : houses
to their utmost capacity proved a fair
omen of the success of the morrow.
Those who came early and stayed long
were many, and their ranks were constant

The buildings attracted vast throngs,

THE ABBA LIGHT COMPANY.
At the south end of Mechanical hall " is
an exhibit of peculiar interest to farmers
and those living in towns or cities where
gas or electric lights have either not yet
been introduced, or are too expensive for
general and domestic use. The danger
from the explosion of ordinary lamps is so
great that it is only astonishing that
more accidents do not occur, especially
when we consider how careless persons are
in using and carrying them.
The lamp on exhibition is what is known
as the needle gas lamp, the construction of
which is so perfect and ingeniously ar
ranged that explosions are absolutely im
possible, all dangerous gases being carried
off and no possibility of them being com
municated with the reservoir. In proof of
the excellency of this invention and its
absolute safety, we give the following
letter from the secretary of
the Underwriters' association of Cincin
nati, remarking by the way. that this i*
the first and only time that an insurance
company has ever endorsed a lamp of any
description : [ ; . . : :
Underwriters' Association of Cinncinati, I
Cincinnati, June 5, 1882. )
I have carefully examined the Needle gas lamp,
(burning headlight oil), manufactured by W. R.
Robins, at 162 Main street, in this city, and find
it to be in all respects a safe lamp, and unob
jectionable from an insurance point of view.
Besides being wholly of metal, the construc
tion of the lamp renders explosions impossible.
I endorse it as a safety lamp, and recommend
»*■ *'- Chas. E. Marshall, Sec'v.
In addition to its safety, the "Needle"
gives a brighter and better light than
those ordinarily in use, fifty candle power
being guaranteed. The prices are so low
that any one can easily purchase them.
WEATHER THE BEST.
Yesterday afternoon the weather was ev
erything that could be desired. The sky
WBB clear and the sun shone brightly. A
gentle breeze was blowing from the east.
The amphitheatre was well filled. Fully
f>.(XX) people were in the seats, and when
Col. King stepped to the front of the
judges' stand and announced that the races
were then about to begin, he was cheer
fully greeted with applause.
At 2 o'clock the bell at the judge's stand
called up the horses for the
for $f»00 a aide between Com. Kittson's
celebrated trotter Silverton and Fred
Pillsbury's handsome gray, Pedro.
Pedro won the pole and scoring at once
began. Upon the second score an elegant
start was made. The animals flew up* the
first stretch side by side, which relative
position was maintained until nearly the
end of the first quarter, when Pedro be
haved badly and flew up, and Silverton
dashed to the front honestly. Before the
driver could get control of the
gray and get him down to
business again the blooded bay
gained an advaetage of nearly ISO
yards. But Pedro then coming down to
honest work closed up the gap until uponthe
home stretch only three laps were between
them. Silverton took the heat in aneasy
jog in 2:28.
Second Heat— A splendid send-off was
secured on the first start. Silverton soon
took the lend, which he kept until the home
stretch was gained. Each horse was do
ing beautifully. Not a skip from the score
to the wire. It was one of the prettiest
heats ever witnessed on the Minneapolis
fair grounds. Up they came, side by side.

Third Heat—This heat was a handsome
exhibition from first to last. Silverton got
the pole at the first turn. Down the back
stretch Pedro went into the air. and an in
teresting lap was placed between them.
Pedro did admirably on the home stretch,
but too large a gap had been placed be
tween them, and Silverton came in four
lengths ahead in aneasy jog. Time 2:26 K.

well. Pedro went off his feet on the first
quarter, and again on the last quarter. Sil

Considerable trouble was experienced
and the start that was made was not as
even as might be expected.
Prioress took the lead but David R.
soon passed to the front, but on the back
stretch Prioress again took first place.
Gold Seal was pretty badly left at the start
but he worked away on the back stretch
until the gap had been closed, and on the
home stretch all the horses were in a clus
ter and doing? nicely, until David R. flew
up. Gold Seal also broke at almost the
same instant, but little Prioress kept right
down to solid business to the wire. Gold
Seal fouled by crowding in front of Prior

was probably not intentional at all.

he became excited at meeting the mounted
marshals who rode down into the track
almost in front of the horses.
Gold Seal passed under the wire a half a
length ahead, with Prioress and David R.
struggling for the supremacy and Scram
ble in the rear.
The judges gave the heat to Prioress,
with David R. second. Scramble third, and
Gold Seal fourth, for foul. Time. 2:49.
Second Heat — A "daisy," start was made.
Gold Seal went into the air but quickly
came down again. David R. was the first
until the half post was reached, when
Prioress pushed to the front. On the home
stretch. Gold Seal got the lead, but broke
badly. The four horses passed under the
wire in a bunch, with Gold Seal a little in
favor, Prioress next, David B. third and
After a short consultation the judges set
Gold Seal back for running, giving the
heat to Prioress, with David R. second,
Scramble third and Gold Seal fourth.
Third Heat — After scoring twice they
got off. Gold Seal ran to the front and
held it to the wire. Scramble did nicely
and had a good prospect of winning the
heat, but as they made the grand stand the
crowd sent up such a lusty shout as to send
Scramble into the air.
Gold Seal took the heat in 2:43K with
Prioress second, Scramble third and David
Fourth Heat — This heat was taken
in fine style by Scramble,
who gave a fine exhibition of
trotting in coming up the home stretch,
passing the wire in 2:43*4, with Prioress

and Little Joe. all fine animals. "Little
Cricket"' had an equal number of horses, all
thoroughbred fine steeds.
Little Cricket was handsomyly dressed in
a blue habit, while Myrtie Peek wore a
neat black suit.
While the track was being sprinkled
Myrtte Peek dashed up and down the
track upon a handsome and spirited bay
thoroughbred, attracting the attention and
admiration of the audience.
Presently Cricket came upon the track
and mounted a handsome sorrel amid en
AT THE WOBD "GO I ."'
both animals sprang into the air and
dashed up the track side by side. At the
Ii1 'i mile Peek got the front, but Cricket was
*iose behind, coming up the heme stretch
almost together. Cricket sending her horse
for the second mile, while Peek made a bad
change. But she was splendidly mounted
and soon the gap began to lessen. Cricket
came home making the second mile with
her sorrel in fine style, hugging the inside
of the track. with Peek following
closely. Cricket now makes a
flying change and is off on a fresh
horse on even terms with Peek, who sends
her horse for the second mile. Cricket
takes a lead until she passes under the
wire on her third mile 300 yards in advance.
On the back stretch of the fourth mile
Cricket showed one-fourth mile favor,
with the gap constantly widening. Crick
ett sends her horse for three miles amid
the shouts of the audience. Peek changes
and Crickett mnkes a lead of three-eights
of a mile. The horse made the third mile
beautifully, coming home apparently fresh.
Peek sends the same horse again, while
Cricket makes a lightning change.
It was now quite apparent that this would
be the qnickest race ever made on tbe Min
neapolis track. At thefbeginning of the
seventh mile Miss Peek took a fiery Igray,
who spxang into the air upon turning with
sufficient spirit to have thrown the best
rider, but the plucky little girl kept her
saddle. This horse gained perceptibly at
every jump, and was sent for a second
mile. Cricket makes another flying change,
but Peek's horse cut down the laps until
it was considerably less than a quarter
On the tenth mile both horses were re
tained, and both horses showed wonderful
endurance and speed: In the eleventh mile
Peek again lost at least one-eighth of a
mile by slow changing. During the twelfth
mile Crickett maintained her lead increas
ing the distance between herself and Peej)
to three-eighths of a mile, which by anoth
er bad change of Peek's she increased to
one-half in the next mile, the thirteenth.
In the fourteenth, Peek made rapid and
excellent change, and considerably short
ened Crickett's lead. The fifteenth mile
was run without materially altering the
relative position of the two contestants.
In the sixteenth mile Peek met with
what might have proved a very serious ac
cident, falling from her saddle as she was
about to dismount almost directly under
her horse's feet. A shout of horror and
apprehension went up from the audience.

Plucky as she showed herself in this emer

race, and it was from this time out evident
that nothing but an accideut to Cricket
could prevent her winning. The four fol

TWENTY MILE CONTEST
between Miss Belle Cook, of California,
and Edwardo Espinosa. the famous "Mexi
can dare devil," which will be decidedly the
event of the day. Miss Cook is already
known to most of our readers as the cham
pion in a simijar contest last year, in
which Miss Jewett. of Minneapolis, rode
against her on these fair grounds.
Espinosa is a stranger to the Minnesota
public, but the Globe has already pub
lished accounts of many of his wonderful
exploits in the southwest. In one of the
adventurous expeditions he, in com
pany with three others, attacked fourteen
Indians, thinking that there
were only three or four, when
too late and they had discovered their mis
take they endeavored to escape, but not
before Espinosa had been left for dead,
with several bullet holes in his body. Es
pinosa in his great contest , to-day with
Miss Cook will change horses himself,
while she will be lifted from one to an
other by her attendants: undoubtedly the
rssult of the race will depend largely on
which of the two contestants can change
the most rapidly, as they both will ride
very fine horses and are splendid riders.
A very exciting contest is certain.
[Special Telegram to the Globe.]
Chicago, Sept. <>.- -A drunken tight,
which will probably result in the death of !
one of the participants, occurred this
morning about 9 o'clock at the stock yards,
between a carriage painter named Samuel j
Williams and a teamster in the employ of
the Stock Yards company names! Normier.
The fight is supposed to have originated
from family troubles. It is said by one
who claims to know, that years ago Wil
liams left his wife and children to shift for
themselves, and skipped for parts un
known, leaving his affairs in an involved
condition. Mrs. Williams after this made
her living by keeping boarders. About a
year ago Normier went there to board, and
it is claimed, paid some attention to Mrs. \
Williams. Everything went well until last
Sunday morning, when Williams turned
up and went to his wife's place
at 748 Forty-third street and
abused Normier. telling him he should not
board at his house when he wasn't at
home. There was a continual quarrel for
the next two days, and last night
when Normier came to his boarding
house he was ordered out by Williams.
He refused to leave, however, and this
morning both went into a saloon. After
getting pretty well filled they got . into a
quarrel, and Williams walked up to Nor
mier and gave him a tremendous blow un
der the ear, knocking him senseless. He
then proceeded to administer a most
brutal pounding upon the fallen Normier
whom he left for dead. Dr. Callwell was
at once called and returning to conscious
ness Normier had a very Wad hemorrhage
of the lungs caused by a kick in the side.
He was alive at last reports. ;

OUJSENS OF THE BALLET.
Some of the Great Dancers lleincmbered by
"Of all the dancers you have ever seen
whom do you consider the best:"
"That is a very difficult question to an
swer. I shall have to go over a large field
of memory, and then will be unable to de
cide. You see there is such a wide dif
ference in the style of dancers. Then
again some will excel in one point and
some in another. Taglioui was, all things
considered, the best serious and fairy
dancer I ever saw. I first met her in Italy,
in 1841, and danced with her in a ballet
called "La Sylphide.' She was tall and
slender, of light complexion, with chest
nut brown hair. Her face was pleasant
and attractive, but not handsome. Her
father, though himself a ballet master,
was a man of remarkable intelligence, and
had bestowed a fine education upon his
daughter. Her manners were those of a
thorough lady. She was very affable to
all the members of the company, treating
them with the utmost kindness and mak
ing herself very popular with them.
Fanny Ellsler, though not so good a
dancer as Taglioni. wa9 her superior as a
pantomimist. In those days ballets were
not. as now, mere dances telling no story,
but they were all ballet pantomines, with
a pretty plot, which, if well acted, was
quite as intelligible and entertaining as
that of any play. It was in the panto
mime part of her profession that Ellsler
excelled, though as a character dancer
also she was unsurpassed. I shall never
forget what a treat I enjoyed in seeing her
play the title role in the ballet pantomime
of 'Esmeralda' at the La Scala of Milan.
In person she was a well-formed brunette
of about the same height of Taglioni, like
whom she was pleasant in appearance,
though not pretty. She was also a perfect
lady, and very popular with her profes
Carlotta Grisi. a sister of the great
prima donna, understood the mechanism
of diincing. and produced more effect on
an audience than any other d;uiseu*;e I
ever saw. but her ability as a pantomimist
was not great. She was a beautiful blonde,
with just the right figure for a dancer,
and was a great favorite at the Grand
Opera house in Paris, where she was en
gaged for a number of years. She after
ward married Perrot. the best male dancer
of his time.
Blangy was another artist contempora
neous with those above n:\med. She made
a professional tour of this country about
1H4(). and was a very graceful dancer, as
well as a great pantomimist. She played
the first act of the pantomime "Giselle*
better than any one else I ever saw. She
was of medium size, scarcely dark enough
to be called a brunette, and while .she did
not possess any claims to beauty, was
very pleasing and attractive.
Cerito wa? the most poetical dancer I
ever saw. Though born in Naples she was
ft blonde of the purest type. A more beauti
ful face and figure it would be difficult to
imagine. Nature seemed to have formed
her expressly for the profession she had
chosen. She was so incredibly light upon
her feet as to well deserve her sobriquet of
the 'Flying Fairy.' It is no figure of
speech to say that her »ancing was in
deed the poetry of motion.
Of the dancers seen in this country
within the past fifteen years, unquestion
ably the best is Mile. Kathi Lanner, a
Viennese, and the daughter of Lanner,
the well-known composer of waltzes. She
made her first appearance in America at
the Grand Opera house. New York, under
the management of the iate James Fisk,
Jr., and is, of course, well remembered by
American theater-goers. For several years
past she has been mistress of the ballet at
Covent garden, London, where she still
Cornalba is another dancer of fine abili
ty who was seen in this country two or
three years ago. Ido not mean the Cor
nalba who danced under Tompkins and
Hill's management the last Beason, but the
first lady of the name v/fio came to this
country, and who remained but a short
time on account of ill-health.
