tabllliitit effort and one which cannot fall
to command due attention. If all the high
expectations are realized It will be a mat

It will bare been accomplished altogelh
rr by American ability. Miss Mather
fcu personally superintended the prepare
tloa.and Eugene V. Preabrey has carried out
ttr Ideas and his own In directing the affair.
Tie spectacular feature will be a battle, which
Mr. I'rcibrey has undertaken to make note
worthy. The scenery and costumes are new, of
coarse, and are said to be remarkably good.

A new lrlh drama will be performed to
morrow n'eht at the Fourteenth sireot. It Is
called "Sweet lnnlscarre," and It has been
written by Augustus I'ltou for the express nur
pose of creating a hero for Chauncey Olcott to
Impersonate. Mr. Pltou has been a collaborator
In several plays, but this Is his first work single
banded. He has been Mr. Olcott's employer
since that singer became an actor of Irish
characters, and so It Is reasonable to expect
practical value In the piece. The outline of the
story Indicates a departure from convention
ality. The Irish lover Is not an oppressed peas.
ant. bnt a millionaire voluntarily figuring for
sentimental purposes as a poor schoolmaater.and
the stock subjects of landlordism, eviction, and
rrd.coated tyranny are not Introduced. The
misfortune that befalls the young man comes
of his being unjustly carried off by a press rang
to serve at sea. The heroine Is wealthy, too, and
her sorrows, prior to matrimonial Joys, relate
to a hateful marriage which she Is all but
forced Into. A new lot of Irish ballads has been
mad for Mr. Olcott to sing, and a picturesque
mounting of the piece Is promised. The com
pany has been newly organized with reference
to the requirements of the twenty-two rolet.
The first American representation of "Straight
from the Heart" will be given at the Acad
emy of Music to-morrow night. It lean English
modern melodrama by Sutton Van and Arthur
bhlrley. wbo have written many plays of tb
kind denominated sensational, notably, "The
Snan of Life," which bad a marked popular
success In this country. "In Sight of Bt. Paul'"
was another of their work ned here. A the
latest com position by these practiced author
has been current many month In Lon
don and elsewhere in England, and, as
the character of their work I well es
tablished, there will probably be no disap
pointment at the Academy. The audience
is pretty sure to be engrotsed and thrilled.
As usual In such pla s, the principal characters
are sent from a civilized city to a lavage forelng
country for adventures, and In thl Instance
they are transferred from Paris to Algeria,
wl.tre they figure In a desert scene whloh Is
said to be particularly stirring. The Immense
space of the stage at this theatre permit of big
achievements, and It Is said that every Inch of
1: will be utilized this time. Blanche Walsh is
not only to enact the heroine, but will also
appear In man's attire as the heroine's young
brother. Oil-rs in the cast are Charles Kent,
1111 m Fernandez. E. L. Walton. W. A. Wbite
car. ISert Coote. and Sam Edward.
We shall eet a native melodrama at the
Columbus to-morrow night In "The Woman In
Waik," and In the Judgment of Jacob Lltt, a
manager who hit the papular taste squarely
with "In Old Kentucky" and "Tho War of
Wealth," It Is a thing that will delight the kind
of audiences for whom Itviai expressly made,
The author Is H. (irattnn Donnelly, who la no
novice In writing hilarious farces, and may now
prole himself equally clever In a serious vein.
Tne theme Is politics In New York city, but Mr.
Donnelly hastens toexplaln beforehand that he
4i not present the subject " In such a light as
to trove nlTenslve to the different party affilia

that, beginning early next month, three mati
nees will be given each week.
There will be no change at the derrick nutll
March, when "Secret Service" will have to be
transferred to Iloalon. Mr. Gillette, Mis
lluaby, and MIm Tyler are still the mainstay
of the performance. There I nothing better la
this war drama than the two Southern girts.
Lillian Huasell bears the label of " An Ameri
can IJeauly" J uitltlably at the Caalno, where
he will remain many weeks longer. The 180th
performance, counting In the tour prior to com
ing to town, will be celebrated with crystallized
and silver-mounted American Iloauty roses for
the audience on Feb. 1,
Henry Miller baa reaohed a third week with
"Heartsease "at the Garden, and, as nothing
Is announced about bis successor at that
theatre, a profitable term of the new play Is
iremln;ly connted on, Tliore has been no alter
ation In the excellent rail, aud facility and
celerity have been unlncd,
John Hare's reproduction of "Caste" at the
Knickerbocker was an experiment, becauie It
was an open question bow much Interest New
Yorkers would take In an old Itoberlsnu comedy.
Only a week's time was allotted to It, but that
has not been etiiiutlh, and the piece will be re
lalned until Saturday night, thus delaying the
reNlalof"A I'alr of Spectacles." Mr. Hare's
Kcrlrs Is nearly liio must delightful of his roles
yet seen here.
Caroline Mlskel Hoyt Is the quiet and demur,
centre of turbulence and farcliallty In "A Con
tented Woman" at Uol's. Much nf the pleas
ing effect attained with her In this piece comes
of this admit I'onlruel between the act less and
her surrounding. The comedians, male and
female, are about as suitable a set as Mr.
llo t has ever selected for any of hi pieces, and
they ptovokemuch laughter.
May lrwln Is to stay at the Illjon with
"Courted Into Court" until March. She has a
new song to Introduce this week with the re
frain: "Mnce Mary Ilairls came from l'arli,"
and later she will revive several of last season's
negro ballade. The disagreement between Mis
Irwm and bar managers, Itlch A Harris, or
their agraemenl to disagree, as Mr. Harris puts
It, will have no bearing upon her current en.
gagemental the llljuu.
'I he Holland brother pas Into the final week
of "A .Social Highwayman" at the Fifth Ave
nue. Their roles In That piece are the best they
bate found vet. Hut perhaps they will be a
happily placed In "Dr. Claudius." which la In
rehearsal for production at thl tneatrea week
hence. F. Marlon Crawford and Harry St.
Maur are dlreiting the preparations for the
play which they have made out of Mr. Craw
ford's familiar novel.
Ada Ituhan Is still devoting herself to Shakes
pearean comedy In the ornate rovlval nf "Much
Ado About Nothing" at Daly's, where thla play
ha run much limner than was exnecied, anil
has fully rewarded the manager fur his expen

"Captain Impudence" ha one more week at
the Amtrkan, with Mr, and Mrs. Itoyle. After
that we shall get "New York," the Wheeler
and Alfrlend play, "1 wish It understood,"
sms Manager llratiy, "that It I not a nielo

whether a husband should furgtte nl wife for

sea.un, r-ourenlrs have already been nrarred
for the hundredth verforur.nlu, although lite
fiftieth was celebrated in that way only last
week. Happy at first In the engagement of an
uncommonly competent eel of cnmedlaus, this
musical farce Is further fortunate In keeping
them In undeteriorated service.
"A Iioy Wauled "did not wear out Its prion
larltr In a single week at the Star, although that
Is usually the case with play at that theatre of
th people, and so ll will remain until next (Sat

the middle and front of It, and an assortment of
singers, dancer, and comedians equally active

The utilisation of waste dag has ltd to many x

German Association of Cement Workers bss en

and some lmportsnt progress, It seems, baa been
made. In tbe vslley uf tbe Soar a slag
of sultabl composition Ii produe-d smd can
be suitably granulated, two factories already run
ning on this product. The cost of the slsg Is a
little test than one and a third dollars per barrel
tn fifty-ton lots, the slag cement being lighter than
tbe well known Portland cement, and running In
weight about 330 pounds to a barret. The official
teiti show that such a cement aires excellent re
sults In foundation work, but does not do so well
It freely exposed to the sun and to atmospherlo In
fluences, A good deal of this cement Is therefore
used In making pavement tiles, bricks, and blocks,
these consisting of a mixture of gravel, sand, and
the slag cement, In various proportions, moutdsd

Tne Imperial Institute, Edinburgh, has hsd
brought to Its attention some Interesting phe
'noraeng relating to (ho method by which gold was
originally deposited In auriferous quarts. Ou this
occasion Mr. J, O, Johnson of Adelaide, Aui.
tralla, who has given great attention to
the subject, exhibited speclmedi of non gold
bearing stones In which be had srttUclslly Intro
duced gold In Interstices and on the face In such
a manner as to defy deteotlon, even by skilled ex
perts. Some of these specimen wer shewn pri
vately to several dlsUngushed aeologlsts, who ex
pressed great surprise at the remarkable charao
tir of the sums. It seems that the discovery, some
years ago, that gold could be Induced to deposit
from Its mineral salt to the metslllo stst on sny
suitable base, such as iron sulphide, led Mr. John
son to experlmeul with various salt! of gold, and
by which he found hlmielf able to produce th
most natural. looking specimens of auriferous
quarts from stone which, from previous assay, con
tained no trace of gold! moreover, the gold, wbloh
penetrates the stone so thoroughly, assumes some
of the more uatural forms.
Ths remarkable light which has been brought
forward In Germany, and knuwn as tbe Durr light.
Is declared by the Jialfirov ?vUi to be equally
capable of use for Interior Illumination. It Is origi
nated by automatic evaporation and overheating of
tbe vapors front ordlnsry lamp petroleum! tbe
vapors beluc converted Into gas, when burned
yield a light of from 3,800 to 14,000 oandle power.
The apparatus consuls of a tank containing the
supply of petroleum, which Is removed sufficiently
from tbe burner to avoid all danger of fire from
the flans. The oil tl condooted by drops Into a
burner of special conatructloj, after the latter has
been heated for about five minutes by mesne of
oil which Is burned In smalt beating pans fur
nished with tbe spparatusi behind tbe burner trum
which the Hauls Issues there U a second burner,
whloh, after tbe h.atlng of tbe pans has been re
moved, continually produces the vapors and beats
them to a high temperature, at the same time com.
pletely surrounding the first burner with a strong
flame. This arrangement Is said to mske the ex
tluclton of the light sn Impossibility, even In the
strongCkt wtad. Fresh sir Is drawn la between the
burner and the external cylinder by the force of
the flame ruihlng out, and, by using this air In tbe
burnsr, a smokeless flame results, on account of
tbe air supply being heated. The oil used Is or
dinary 100 coal oil, the consumption of wht:h ts
about IK pints per 1,000 candle-power.
A convenient form of conveying apnaVatas Is new
betnc Introduced, says th San Francisco iflnfna
JY-rss, designed for handling barrels and grata
lacks and lifting them from one floor to another.
This darlc consists of a broad rubber endless bell,
from the oaler face of which project pairs of arms
or brackets, tbe two arms of each separate pair be
ing nearly two feel apart) the.barrtls or sacks arc
laid or rolled, one at a time, onto these supports,
and It Is possible toadJusl the apparatus so that II
will deliver tu load at any floor above Ibe starting
point. It ts necessary to.Iave the freight removed
by an attendant as fast as It cornel, but the opera
tion of plaslng tho barrel or sack on the floor, In
front of the opening through wbloh the conveyer
comes through the floor, Is performed automati
cally. Inasmuch, too, as tbe belt runs exactly up
and down.and not slantwise, and as tbe brackats
are shaped alike above and tielow, th davlce can
be employed for aendtng merchandise down again
from Xhesrorage lofts without reversing tbe direc
tion tu whtoh the belt runs la fact, both homing
and towering can be done at the same time.
It Is not generally known that ln ebemlcal analy
ses, different results, In many cases, are obtained by
different chemists from the same ubstanc. Thus,
according to a paper read by F, P, Dwwey of Wash
ington, D. C, before the American Institute of Min
ing Englneers,ths fsct was Illustrated, notably, ln a
cose of examination of gotd and silver In copper
materials a case ln which there were twenty. six
results by twenty chemists, working by two main
method!, each by a single chemist, varying from
m3.as to 1V2.8S, and averaging 17.04 ounces per
ton, the extreme variation being 18.3 ounces per
ton, or 0.77 per tent, of Ibe average determination.
In the silver assay of the copper borings, nine
chemists' reports by the icorlflsatlon method aver
agsd results varying from int. 33 to 134.40, the rate
per ton running some 168 3A ounces, thus showing an
extreme variation of 8.83 ounces per ton, or 8.34
per cent, uf the average. Farther, flf leen chemists
reports of sixteen results by combined wet and
scorlflratlon methods varied from 181.40 to 148.30,
averaging 1SS.4S oulccs per ton, the extreme vari
ation being 13.0 ounces per ton, or S.SS per cent, of
the average. Summing up, there are thus shown
twenty.slx determinations by twenty chemists,
working by three methods, ranging from 184.83 to
118.3, and averaging 107,07 ounces per ton, tbe ex
treme variation being 13.88 ouncea per tun, or
10,03 per cent, of tbe average determination.

Sunday Is as much a national laitrratton aa a reli
gious Institution, he urges." It must, howes-tr, pe
remembered tht Rabbi nirsch'e orthodoxy Is a
negllgable quamtty. Fie goes very for In bis Liber
alism, Dr. Iisso M. Wise of the Hebrew Union Col
lege Is regarded as the leader of tbe reform party
In Judaism, but he still support the Mcaala Sab
bath and most of the ancient Jewish customs. In
some synagogues regular services are held on Sat

The editor of Jftcti, .Seessnevtr and AA hai sent
to Tux Sen an expression of his pleasure that "Tux
Sun often prints news of aspeclal Interest to us
Jews, who," he say, "prefer th- well edited Sin to
any other metropolitan daily." That Is right. Tim
Sea Is flllsd with news for all the eli-ments In the
popuUtlnn of tbe United States.
A Ilusslsn Jewess of scientific! character, Dr.
Lydta Rablnnvltoh, has taken charge of the new
bacteriological laboratory In the Women'! Medical '

The pay of rabbli In the Unltod Statei ranges I
from 3100 to i,00 a year. The supply Isalwavs
far beyond the demand. There, are tn this country
hundreds of rabbis from Russia who cannot find

In commenting upon tbe relUlous differences
among tho Jews tn this country, the ffrhreie Jnurrisf
said some time sroi "We American!, to Judge by
tbe reform standard, have within tbe last fifty
years changed lo thoroughly that the worshippers
of one oongrezatlon can hardly recoe-ntro their
brelhreu of another congregation as Hirir own flcsli
and blood. The majority of American and Ainerl
canlsed Jews (and a large majority St that' Imve
made no changes In their worship! but ahoilt (!
pee cent, of the entire Jewry In the tnitcd States
profess to be reformers, and Ihey ar the most
talked about and the biggest talkers tn the nam of
Judaism. Thus the grett channel which Judaism
ha. undergone In this country are to b Judged by
them only. (. e,, 0y the 33 per cent, of Jews bo
bav" excluded themselves from ties masses of their
b I'thren. There Is is vast a difference, between
