Jack Lyman anuounccs that he will not en
tertain any challenges until after he has
fought Billy Murray again for tho UO-uound
championship. As Murray is ready to meet
hiin.it is probablo tho men will come togother
again In the Fall.

Jack Hopper feols confident that he has im
proved sufficiently in scienco since his last
meeting with Billy Dacey to bo nblo now to
down him. Billv. however, is quito as con
ildcnt that be is still superior to Hopper in
ability. Both mon aro standing out tor all
the advantages they can possibly get. Hopper
thinks ho fights best at 128 pounds. Dacey
considers his best fighting weight 133 pounds.
And here is the hitch. But tho newly organ
ized Cribb Club of Trov will offer a gonerous
purse for tlio two men to fight for, which
may bring tho match to a head.
What has become of that proposed match
between Miko Cnshing and Auntm Gibbons?
These two aro crackers at their weights, and
a sot-to between them would be highly inter
esting. J. S. Mitchell, that colossus at heavy
weight throwing, threw the hammer 123 feot
8 inches at the games at Bergen Point yes
terday. But. by some accident, tho hammer
actually weighed seventeen pounds, a pound
above tho prescribed weight.
Willlo Day, tho great cross-country runner,
gave up after making three laps from the
scratch in the IK mile ovent at Ber

This is such a common error of athletes.
They beat themselves byworking too hard to
get in what they consider good trim. Had Day
not been too fine he would have had a sure
thing of the ono and one-half mile.
The Manhattan Athletic Club holds its an

AVith this enn in view the crew has already

of doing so somewhat. And now, with the

I am not fishing for an invitation. Uncle
Joshua; youmuitnot think that. But 1 can't
lot sou no without a lino or two, coneratnlatlng
you upon tho result of your most lemaikable
theatrirnl rcaKoii, and wlshlns you a hearty "to
return," which ou can digest at lelsnio alter
Saturday night. The poetry tn which I hao
Just allmled has intoxicated nm soniowhat. I
fain would call upon oii, and sing, to yon,
"Oh. nhy do you go whn tho llowcrs are
spriiiKing," but, bn fecond concidcration, I
would not like you to begin your vacation disr
ablcd and unhappy; and furthermore, the song
in question is an Irish mother's lament, and as
an Irish mother I should bo a dead failure.
The success of " The Old Homestead" has of
course inspired the imitative 'crowd of play
wrights and Uncle Joshuas of mote or less inter
est and of vailed beauty have sprung up in
mnsbroom-like rapidity. Occasionally we hear
of an Imitation meeting with more success than
an original, but in the iprescu instant it is de
lightful to recall the fact that every
Unclo Joshua copy has made its model
stand out moro conspicuously excellent,
moro unmistakably unique than before. And
this circumstance is peculiar. "Tho Old
Homestead " has defects of course; It Is lacking
in dramatic action. Yot nobody has been able
to rectify its wanttng-ncss and at tho samo time
Kivo us tlio cpUodio charm of Unclo Joshua
Whltcomb's pastoral, and this shows very clearly
that tho charm of "The Old Homestead " is
of moro worth than dramatic action, in this
case at any rate.
You havo somcuhat disarmed orlticism, Mr.
Thompson, and that iu a point for which I must
heartily thank jou. Those who havo visited
"The Old Homestead" to criticise tho work of
a "star actor," ha found Indeed that their
occupation was gone. You are not an actor,
dear, avuncular sir. You are siinnly Dcnuian
Thompson. You appear upon tho stago and
enjoy yourself there. Two thousand eyes may
bo looking upon you, but that doosn't mako yon
in tlio leait li lunatic
I think that this is one of tho most interesting
facts in conniction with your extremely Inter
esting self. Suppose Irving went upon the stage
and played Irvine. Wo should bo repelled, I
am quite convinced, and this Is said in all due
dofeience to an artist. Imagine Booth standing
up and being Booth. I wouldn't want to bo in
the Iioubo at tho time, I am perfectly sure.
Hardly an actor or an actress upon
the stsge that conld be behind the footlights
himself or herself. Of course it is notnecos
sary that thcro should bo such folk, as the ob
ject of the profession is Impersonation or
interpretation. Yet Dor.man Thompson is Den
man Thompson, and by simply being himself,
dear sir, he has mado a fortune.
It really makes one's mouth wator to think of.
It mnst bo lovely to know that you have such a
nice, profitable self lurking abont your waist
coat. Tho lhes of most of us are hardly inter
esting to oursolves, let alono pleasing to others.
Not a dollar could be made from the portrayed
oxistence ot nlnety-nino ont of a hundred of
jaded city( folk and, of course, I speak as one
of the jaded folk. Think of our queer little
breakfasts, onr heotlo, prosalo money-grubbing,
our foverish afternoons and tiresome
evenings being " enacted " upon the stage.
How wofnlly unconvincing, even with a dash of
tho dramatlo as.saucel
Your success, Mr. Thompson, is, of course,
very easy to explain. Thank goodness that it is.
It would not do for ns to know no reason why
our lives conld not bo mado as profitable as
yours. If I could not account for your phenom
enal good fortune, I should at onoe seek Mes'.rs.
Oilmore and Tompkins and remark: "Gentle
men. Jj'enman Thompson is no actor, aa yet he
has appeared nightly upon the stage of the
Acadomyof Music and filled his pockets and
purse. Let mo hire your theatre from yon and
see if I can't do the same. I am also no aotor. "
" The Old Homestead" has appealed because
it came at a time when pnblio taste was tired of
tawdry plays with improbable plots and impos
sible people and far-fotchi.d motives. A plot is
an awful undertaking. It must of necessity
deal with out-of-the ordinary events, because,
as I before said, our lives are hardly interesting.
Bo exceptional cases are eagerly looked for and
dramatized, and people when they go to the
theatre expect romance, which they generally
get, strongly tinted with impossibility.
Your pastoral, Mr. Thompson, does not in the
least affect dramatic romance. People still love
Which he took in such a hurry when ho ran
away from me.
Boon His Lordship took his leave, over which I
did not grieve.
Then we went into the kitchen and there told
the story o'er
Of my danger in the field, nor His Lordship's
Ending all with tho denouement of His Lord
ship's mishap sore.
Uncle Ezra closely listened, while his blue eyes
flashed and glistened
Underneath his shaggy eyebrows, till onr
narrative was done;
Then he walked across the floor and took down
from o'er the door,
Where it hung upon some brackets, an old
ftshlonod flint-lock gun,
Then he came across where I sat almost pre
pared to fly,
And bef oro mo stood a moment, while no sound
the silence broke;
What on earth he wonld do next? was the
question. Was be vexed
At his Lordship or at me t For an aniwtr this
he ipoxei '
the. plar as much as ever Tho drama Is of
courso literatnre, and literature make, as lthas
made, and will make tho world endurable. But
"Tho Old Homestead " has come In as so much
refreshment. After seeing It, we can go back to
our plays with renewed veal. As tho sorbet Is to
the dintior, pushing us gently forwatd In tho ill.
rictlon ot the roasts and the salads and tho des
serts, so your "Homestead" ha glten us a new
tjealre for the drama, aud rcallr spurred us un
to appreelate een yes. een melodrama.

Managers ouitlit to combine to thank 5 ou, dear
uncle. Tbouali you havo packed your own
tbeatie, 1 am convinced that 5u bate alnn
helped Io fill thclis. (.'outlast is really tho spice
of life. Much that by Itself would Im intolerable
iaexqul.lto by comparison. A perpetual smllo
becomes a hideous grimace. You artistically
realized the force of contiast when you sand
wiched a city scone bctweeu tho lajers of "Tho
Old Homestead's" pastoralnesr. The flrst net.
deliriously quaint, made me long for moie. But
lot and behold, tho second act was in the ordi
nary every.day luxurious cits. Just nalhlsMas
beginning to urnw wearisome hack joutooku
to the country, and there yon ended, sending us
homo with n bucolic flavor in onr mouth or to
somo dairy whero wp could fondly Imagino that
the milk tasted cow-y and that tlio butter was
no relation to oleo.
Certainly those who have declared ) on were
no actor, and made the statement In a deroga
tory manner, can never accuso you of having
posed for one, dear Mr. Thompson. Never once
during your long sojourn among us have I be
held your form mingled with the frequenters of
tho Bialto; never onco have I heard you dcclaro
that you wero "simply great" or had made
"the hit of join life." Net cr havo you aped
little eccentricities or tried to fnrco voursclf Ille
gitimately. Your conduct, dear Unclo Joshua,
has been dignified snd unuinal. You havo never
even given us a souvenir to throw Into our waste-paper-basket,
or made a speech to thank us for
having accepted from yon our mouey's worth.
You have not even informed us tbst you wero
Unclo Joshua Wliltcomb for positively tho two
hundredth time, or announced that the tenth
month of this unrivalled impersonation had Just
begun. Even our tickets, Uncle Joshua, you
did not seem to caro much about. You know
very well that wo lovo to believe that weard
obliged to buy them six months in advance.
And thoso oagcr "cinnds surrounding tbo
box-oftlce." what has become of them?
Alas) Unclo Uenman surely you need a
manager, a nice, good consistent liar. You
have kept us in ignorance of so much of tho
usual and expected. It mnst seem strange to
many that this lias not hurt ou, but it hasn't.
And now, dear Uncle, your admiring nophow
wishes you a plenteous holiday. Educated
horses succeed you at tho Academy, but they
cannot tako vour place, any moro than tho
trained monkeys that followed Irving at the
atar could take his, " The Old Homestead " can
plant itself securely once moro in our busy me
tropolitan Fourteenth thoroughfaro while
Uncle Joshua, Aunt Matilda, Cy Prime, Both
Perkins and Blckety Ann can all come and break
bread with us again. You, in your pleasant
Bwanzoy home, can think of us being slowly
broiled on red-hot pavements, and fapldly re
duced iu the big city frying pan, and such
thoughts, by force of contrast, may ;mako your
country home all the pleasantcr.

Into bullets for the rebels,
Aud refused one spoon tu spare.
When this good old trusty musket
Oft 'nd loud for freodom spoke.
From stun walls nd trees nd thicket,
And amid the battle's smoke,
Bendtn' swift nd true the answsr
Of a freeman tu the call
Of a tyrant tu surrender
With a home-made rifle ball;
When yer gret-grandfatber waited
With this musket in his hand,
Borely wounded bnt nnconquered.
In that last heroic stand
On tho bloody heights ot Bunker,
When the third floroe charge was made,
And that little band of heroes
Met it coolly, undismayed
" Had this lordly English coward
Met yer stern forefather there,
As ho stood bare-headed, bloody,
Liko a lion In his lair,
With his musket clubbed nd ready,
And bis powder born ran dry,
lTo'd have had an excuse better
Than to-day's to turn 'nd fly.
" Though an Englishman in those dsys
Didn't frighten worth a oent,
But wero brave and faoed their dnty
Everywhere that they were sent,
Pnglish'lords wan't all the fashion
In America Jnst then

Wan't the go in upperten.
' What think you would Ezra Stanton,
Had he then the future read, ,
And discovered his descendants
Chasing English dudes, nave saidt
Had he seen this land of freedom ' '
Uterrun with foreign sesmps
Been our pretty Yankee maidens
