IKf "THE TIGRESS."
H'' ImTeryRld that I havo at last seen "The-
HwV lisrcsx." I bad hoard no much about this
B' dramatization of tho hectic novel "Crucify
Ej Her" that I had begun to long for my inde-
KjL pendenco, to yearn for tho abihity to Bay to tho
Et CDcrsetio Manager MacOeachy next tlmo he
V buttonholed mo on Broadway, "Hold, man!
E,, I've seen your play. Don't tell mo anything
VVC jnoro about It. " I assort that for sumo months I
f' liavo Jiad "Tigress " A la manager, by letter and
K! 1y word of mouth, until I pined for some way of
Kr escape. Then thero wcie brief intervals of
Hf "Tigress" it In author, which wcro less
EL fatiguing. lint now, thank goodness, I havo
Hk earned my freedom. Last night I enfranchised
&L Jnyeclf at tho People's.
B$g I confess that I wan Interested in Mr. Morris's
Hif' book, " Crucify Her, "in spile of its many glar-
K ing faults. Its story, which m not now, wan
Hi told with nn ever-increasing intcrcM, and it held
B&, my attention. It in tho fashion to speak of such
V3J$ books nowadays an feverish, and I ni very fond
B" of hearing the term used by peoplo who havo no
tw" moro fevonshncss about t hoi r cotiftitutlon or
K comprehension tlian tho iceberg. The morality
H$i of Mr. Morris's book was questionable, mid tho
IWpX fact that homado his sinning hcioino hnppyiB
Kw' Homcn lint deplm able. Iiut though I should like
K. to have criticised tho book from tho isiiiitof
Hiv view of the ralnt, I found it Impossible. Perhaps
t that was because I nm so beautifully conscious
of my own absence of sanetitv.
VJ" In "ThoTigtcss" tlio interest of tho book Is
Hbt, by no means'niaititalned. Tliu play is an ex-
3, trcraely stagey nlfair, full of "situations,"
KCr which Noah must havu' used when he indulged
HjV In private theatricals in the Aik. Tho incident
E& of tho theft of the diamond necklace, which wan
Ky,' not unduly cmphaslcd in the, book has been
KJk given considerable prominence, in the play, and
KK It wag n mistake. Vulgar, evory-day, Jefferson-
Kt Karlcet-l'ollcc-C'ourt etimo Is not at ull intercst-
TO ing when staged. It is a primitive eflect. Wo
Kbr yearn nowadays for something moro in accord
Kjr ' with our artistio wIckeduesR.
Hf Tho story of tho play deals with tho life of an
Mf' Tinfortunatoglil, who, when a mere child, has
K& been led into sin. Hor betrayer, whom she still
Bf , loves, becomes enamoured of nn adveutuiess,
Ku and kills himself when bo la unable to secure her
Kft affection. Tho girl swears to ho revenged upon
Bf. tho adventuress. Year afterwards, when a gov-
Bwf. criiess in an aiistociatio French family, she
BBvp' meets the woman, who is then passing under
BKjT another name. There la mutual lecoguitinn.
BKv Btella Barottl. tho adciituruss. is t'uloavorltig
Bv. to ruin tho reputation of tho sou of tho family.
BVi Incidentally, she steals tho mother's diamonds.
& Bho and hur ucoomplico aie thwarted by the
Bvi; grrl, Angola, who marries tho son, ami Uvea
RBB happily ovornftorwards, Mr. Morris hopes.
IHB'V I need notnuy whero the scene is laid. Evcry-
BBVr body on hearing that theiu is gambling in tho
BBM! play will at onco gucai Mnnto Carlo, What
BBB&, wonld become of tho modem "society drama"
BBBuA without Monta Carlo? It is a veritable lefugc
bBJ for tho destitnto dramatist. That sickening
BBB2:' salon de jeu and tho nauseating rouge H nnlr
BSiv would bo throadbaro and dilapidated by this
BBwL' tlmo. if tho invasions of tho playwiight could
BK& tell upon them.
, Mr. Morris 1ms -eked out his play with talki-
BBfS uesa. Ho has triiul very hard to ho cynical. Ho
HBB& has evidently nornatural tusto for cynicism, but
BBfl&t has cultivated it in the samo way that people
BBBJ strive to take orhes and sicken themselves in an
HV attempt to Hwallow caviare. The action of
RBB& "Tho Tigresa" is halting. Thtce-fourths of
BBBvA' each act la tilled with platitudes, while, tho re-
BBByS' tnaining fourth.is de uted to propui atiou for the
Kj; climax, which comes with a slup-baug and
BBBn, brings down the curtain. Tho climaxes arc, as
BBH)i a rule, effective, but they are conventional. Mr.
BBBJ' Morris thoroughly understands the conveu-
Ht tional climax, and ho lias mudo four of them.
BBV? The cynicism in tho play is not enlivening.
W It is mostly levelled at tho woman of fashion,
BBByji and Mr. Morris says nothing that has not been
BBB Raid fifty times before. Tho Idea of tho v ire w ho
BBBkv' is always pining for tho death of her husband is
BBBJl Unpleasant. It Is meant for comedy, and
BBBfc; ought, perhaps, to bo labelled to that edict.
BBBU Tho perpetual allusions to the, umliess of the
BBBtt opera frequeutuiH is at times coaise. The sub-
BBB ject has been dune to death in the " comio '
BBBvjjl papers, and a resui rectiou is entiicly un.
HBBtf necessary. Purhaps I may bo accused of
H,. deliberately looking for these Hans for tho
BBBJ purpose of holding them up. The fact is, how.
BBBk', ever, that tho play is full of tin ui from the pro.
H- logue to the foul tli net. I admiiu elovcrly spon-
BBBJ.t' tauoous cynicism, anil fan gloat over icpartcf.
BBBf But tho cynicism, ami icpurtee in "Tito
H .Tigress "are not entertuinim:. A pottlon of the
K comedy scone bctn ecu Mine. Lanine and Lord
BBBfX Noddy was very funny, and ery admirably
BBBK done but thero was too much of it. Mr. Moiris

HBKJi' tm thostaisof "Tho Tigioss,"but us HtelU Ha.
CTJC JW rottl. the adventuress, her lierformauco was ab-
Tfc A. Jj'- olutcly coloilcsB. Stella was a sort of Lena
jELjftSS?, ' Despard, aud Miss Fetter was haudieapned by
3Bv1isv refinement. Her adventuress was a curious sort
BBBBBt of a creatine. In fact.it was haul to believe
BBBBf! that Miss Tetter realized what the adventuress
H really was. Perhaps she thought sho had cov-
K' ered all tho defects of tho ltaiotti when
R' ' smoked a cigaiettu. Hut plenty of
BBBti women sntol.o ciguiottes who are not
BBBK adventureshus, and theiu is littlo that is
BBBftr suggestive in the net. In tho last scene
KV Miss Tetter was ut her best. Homo foiccf ill act-
BBBK1. ing was called for ami she responded to the do.
BBBaT mands ot tliu occasion, it may ho urged that
K this was the only time that the part called for
BBtt. strong acting. That may he. Hut the part cer-
BBBK talnly domanded subtlety and suake-liko dev.
K iltry. Miss Tetter was neither subtle nor dev.
BBBKH ilish, ami showed that ho had ubiolutcly no
BBBW idea how to bo either tho one or tho other.

In passing along the leading streets In almost any city

Tho Uat known way of keeping the blood pare is by
keeping It circulating. In this way It passes rapidly
through the lungs, kidneys and liver, and Is constantly
pur lied. Hut suptmslng tho nystein ts clogged up, as ts
frequently the cane, then of course the blood becomes im
pure. Then far too often men and women take some
powerful purgative, pill or other subatanos, that clears
the body quickly, weakens the strength and leases thu
system In worse condition than before. The only sensi
ble way Is to talui a gentle, pure and natural purgative,
moderately but regularly,and tho highest known medical
authorities of thn day agree that the genuine imported
Carlsbad Hprudel Rait Is infinitely superior to any other
natural preparation known to the uorld. It Is gentle,
ut stimulating; It Is pure, jet powerful. Containing
only natural properties bin evaporated fmm the
celebrated Carlsbad Kprudel Spring, It cannot injure
the body In the leant, aud et it has never failed to renew

Abraham Lincoln first saw the light in a
log cabin in Hardin Couuty, Ky. , Feb. 12,
1809. His fatlior was Thomas Lincoln,
typical frontiersman. llin mother, Nancy
Hanks, was nn eucrgetio though unschooled
Kentucky woman. His grandfather, after
whom ho wur named, was a frioud and com
panion of Daniel Boone, and littlo Abe waj
as nearly a first family Amoricun as oouldbe,
having descended from livo generations of
Lin coins bom in America, tho "original
stock" boing from Norwich, England.
His nncchtors vveie all tall, big-boned, lares
jointod toilors, aud young Abe's boyhood,
spent in tho Kentucky nnd Indiana wilder
ueso alongside tho Ohio River, grow after
tho same pattern.
Of his boyhood's homo Lincoln said : "It
was a w lid region, with many bears and other
wild animals still in tbo woods. There were
soino bchools, so cullod, but uo qualification
was ever required ot u teacher beyond readin',
writ in' nnd cipberin' to tho rulo of throe.
But Abraham wanted to kuow all that thou
about hiin knew, and bad a bankering to
write down all that ho saw or heard. At
eighteen ho was bumcicntly advanced to take
n cargo of farm products to market at New
Orleans by i af tdovv u the Ohio and Mississippi.
Iu 1830 Ins father moved to Macon County,
111. Abo hud nttaiuod his remarkable growth
of G feet i inches at this time, aud was won
derfully muscular, and ho split the rails with
which the big farm was fenced. Another
movo, to Goobo Nest l'rairio, in Colei
Couuty, 111., was mado a littlo later, and
Thomas Lincoln died thero at seventy-three
years of age, his passuge to the grave being
tenderly smoothed by the son.
Several trips with prodnco to New Orleans
had given Abraham an idea of tbo world, and
broadened his mind in u way, and by dint of
of occasional btudy nud his own strength of
will, be obtained admission to tho bar m

volunteered iu his country's service in the
war with tho Sacs uud Fox Indians under
Black Hawk. His commander was Lieut.
Robert Anderson, who commanded Fort
Sumpter at tho beginning of tho civil war.
Tho same year bo ran for tho Legislature,
got 277 votes out of 280 in his own town of
New Salem, but vvns defeated. A country
storo which ho purchased proved a failure
and loft him with a burden of debt wmen
