Mix Kate Fields Muilonl 2toelotn
Thoro Is n little Gorman story that tolls
of I wonderful boy who never hat known what
I was to bo afraid Ho hoard people talking
about shuddering with fear and ho wont all
over the world Into haunted bouses and Into
every conceivable danger trying to experience
tlio new sensation
oen8ton
Miss Kate Field knows M little of I ns this
boy She has written books fearlessly She
hRS trod the stago fearlessly Sliolms moved In
tho highest circles of British society fearlessly
and she now appears In nn entertainment thnt
she dovUos and carries out entirely atouo and
ant
with her accustomed courage
Her entertainment Is styled I monologue
and consist of bits of unconnected small talk
descriptive anecdote nnd burlesque with songs
dotted alone noro and thoro t give variety
to the performance It Is supposed to relato
to tim things that nro to bo coon nnd hoard
In the great English city and It Ii I entitled
Eyes anti Ears In London Now Mlts Fields
oos are bright and of her cars sho his cer
tainly no reason to complain and yet neither
the one nor tho other seem to have served
hur to very good purpose in this
matter Very few American Indies havo
over gone to England who have been
favored with such opportunities for accurate
observation nnd for such an Insight Into Eng
lish life ns Miss Field Sha has boon brought
Into contact with the most eminent
wih emilont men of
letters In that country and with the most dis
tinguished statesmen Sho has soen Its best so
ciety nt Its best and probably also at Its worst
Slut has nn apprehensive mind which sho
might easily have stored during her lone stay I
on tInt other side with I wealth 1 facts nnd
conclusions which should have enabled her to
give to us a gtrlklng brilllnnt anti
ftuggnstlve series of pictures of London
life full ot novel Incident strong charac
terization and fortlln suggestion And
pome ouch result probably was expected by
those who knew of hur opportunities nnd who
gathered In ouch numbers nt her entertain
ment Else why should nearly every literary
man of distinction In tho city have boon at
Chlckorlng Hall last evening As n class theso
workers do not wosto tholr time What Miss
Field actually gave was briefly sketched
somewhat as follows First tie fact lint Lon
don Is foggy and Its climate dull rainy nnd
heavy then apropos of this I Hoiig about
iinibrellai Tho different 1011 this
Miss Fluid sang under different um
Slnl untor IIIuront
brellas first an ordinary silk one then
a rod trimmed with
one wih white lace then
I gigantic blue cotton ono such as thn
Han Francisco Minstrels might use In onnof
their farces After this Miss Field bad Homo
banter about our first parents nnd tho Darwin
Inn theory of the descent 01 man which led her
to nnothnr song called Tho Zoo which was
one nl tlioso curious jumbles of nonsense end
chnfTthit nro mostly heard In variety concerts <
Then followed Cite description of n concart Isl
Mme Tussnuds wax works In time course of
which shn said butt she herself had been Info
taken by two of lier countrymen for a
wax flours and thnt on looking at the rain
loguu they could not fully Identify her but
that one of them siiecestod site might b the
woman who had murdered her lather nnd
mother and two little brothers nnd boiled
thorn Inn copper to which tho other respond
ed Clint ho could ealy believe I as she
lookud lust like thnt kind of womnn Now
wo would rather believe thnt Miss Field con
cocted this story out of whole cloth than to
think that any of our countr > men should bo mi
stupid ns to find In her lovely and Ingenuous
face any such murderous rcsomhlancts
After some remarks about English dinner
parties Miss Field sang a ballad entitled
entt1
<
Dont This related to a girl who wore ring
lets and whoso lover teased her and pulled her
hair At whlh she remonstrated nnd
said if ho did that she would turn him
olT as she had her other lovorp Another
ballad Mamma what Khali I do 7 wan of the
fimn humorous strain tha young lady In this
case being perplexed by 1 umltltudn of lovers
Two other soncs oun a ter good builenjue
of thu sinking of I young woman who
had no voice so hint it was all dumb

entirely l the same character as the first Wo
have been rather prolix in this detail In ttm
endeavor faithfully to show lie manner of
thing that Miss Field brings before her
nudienc W tu love thnt thu oiinl
