Capt. Carnes, President of tbe Mem
phis league bal club, was qoeetioned
yet t a. day by en Appeal reporter in
regard to the rumor that a new park
would be provided for the coming sea
son. He said that tbe matter was not
positively settled, but be had every
reason to believe it would be in a few
days. Tbe Citizens' Street Railway
Company has a piece of ground, 340
by 410 feet, near the hospital, which
they propose to til np for tbe club free
of charge, tbe company Laving al
ready appropriated $-000 for the pur
pose of grading, fencing and building
a grand stand. It will be in ten rain

street-car line from Couit Square. The
company will put in a switch and pro
vide a number of cpen cars, to bo'd
fifty persons each. Tbe idea of hav
ing a park on the street-car line is a
good one, but it does seem a hardship

The coterie of tattooed people proved
to be a magntt of great pctsncy, and
yesterday afternoon and evening drew
the largest audiences ever seen at tbe
Museum. The etTtxtive grouping ol
the picturesquely bedizened men and
women in the hall and annex on tbe
second floor attracts the immediate
attention of visitors of art'stic taste.
Thetattco:se are gaily costumed ex
cept where it is necessary to show the
ducorated euidermis. It ia almost en
interesting as the entertainment itself
to note the wondering remarks ot tne
audience, espec'a ly those hailing from
the rural districts. Even to the ruott
intelligent tne fpectaclo is a remark
able one and which well repays the
Btt.nntion bestowed on it.
One cf the most itiereetinz of
the tattooed people is Frank De
Barge, who is called the "Burmese
Tittooed Wen." He wa? born in
Bristol, England, of Irish parentage.
lie enlibtsd in the British army when
be was seventeen years old, and wag
one of the eeu'inols on guard, at Us
borne House, Isle of Wight, where he
had frequent glimpses of Queen Vic
toria and the royal family. In 18(59
tie went with his rpftinienr, II. M
lO'th Infantry, t j I dia, and remained
there four yeais. From Calcutta he
went to Aden, Arabia, in 1S72, and
served there for two years. 'There
may be a hotter p'ace than Aden in
the next woi Id," says Frank, "bnt 1
do net believe there is in this.
Dunns tbe whole time 1 was
there, nearly two years, I did
not see a single blade of grass." When
a, last his regiment was ordered home
to Ensland De Burge volunteered to
join H. M'a Sixty-seventh regiment
then in Barman. During bis sojourn
there of two years be was tattooed by
the proleaeioral Burmese taUsoers
APPEAL TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 23,
"Four hours f aeh day," he said, "I
submit ed to the trentmert and it
seemed as if a million of needles were
pierring my qiiveritg H,sh at the
Bimetime." His idea in being tat
tooed all 'over the body wes simply
that of excelling his military com
rades who were only tattroed on
breast, hands or arms. He has alto
gether over 250 different designs, on
his person. On his back is a
representation of the Crucifixion,
which was tattooed t y an Amer
lean operator, while all the rest
of his body is covered with pVtures of
Buddha, the "Li(ht of Asia," and hi
apostles, of animal, reptilpe, rbwers
and conventional desiyns. He claims,
however, that the master-piece on his
back is tbe most artistic design ever
tattooed on any human being. The
practical-looking Capt. Cartlnzans is a
?:reat center of attraction. He looks
ike a "sure enough" pirate. He is
the nephew o( the Greek Capt Cos
teatinus, the first entirely tattooed
roan ever brought to this country.
Frank Howard, a very intelligent, gen
llemauly roan, is the artist, and, com
mercing to day, will operate on sub
jects who voluutser, and there are al
ways more than he needs or taa
find time to wotk upon. Tne
e'age performance thia week ia
an especially breezy one, with rather
more of tbe theatrical element in it
than nsual. The only "holdover"

The presenia ion ol u new play by
Sjrdou is an event of BUlIicieut dra
matic importance to Httiuut a much
larger audience tha"n that which was
ajsembled ut Leulirio's Theater lnat
night, f jr no matter how Indifferently
interpreted Kardnu U always entet
taining, and worth a hearing on hi
own merit', without regard to tho
qtlfll tic.ttions of the company into
w hoee hands his play n ay havo fallen.
The dramatist was iortuuute la it
night in huving his play enacted by
competent Hrtists, sonin of whom rose
high above f ie level of the average
"suppoit" of a alar, and one of wl o n,
at least, is calcu'aud to shine bril
liantly in anv comimny he may find
hinibblf in, stellar or otherwise. We
refer, cf course, t Mr. John C.
Freund, whoee Minibtcr cf Police
is so thoroughly well done and a'.te
gtther such a gem of natural but ef
fective acting, that it makes one re
gret that his l.f i is limited to one act.
Mr. Freund's success in this part is
the mo:e lernarkahle when it is re
membered that without tbe slightest
stage training, he compoiti himself in
the mimic scene with all the tine of a
vtteran actor, and with a touch oi
originality now aid then that can
draw its inspi ntion from nettling
short of genius. We look for
greater things from Mr. Freund's
dramatic career than he ha achieved
in journalism, although his achieve
ments in the latter piotession have
been by no means e f an inferior order.
His career will bn watched with inter
est. Madame J.in;sh is an aotreis
of nndoubted merit, of line s'tue
presence, and gified with a man
ner lull oi sweet womaniy grato.
The role ol the "Princess Andrea" Is
essentially emct'onal, and depicts a
true, loving, devoted woman, whose

very sincerely, that if there was any
miecoustrnetion it was not willful, and
if there were any mlstUtements,
reckless or otherwise, they weie not
intended, as such a course is fatal to
the argument and contrary to tha
present writer's disposition. And it is
net clear what eternal and fixed laws
scientists believe, for a law of nature
is a generalised statement based on
nunieioiis farts of observation by
which the oidrtly occurrence of phe
namena is predicted. But these laws
and beliefs are subject to change, "for
science," as some one 1 its eaid, "is,

Before tho British Arso iation,soiiie
yeais sjg3, in an aldress f the en
couragement of abst'act hiiuIius, Prof.
G. C. Koater fluid: "Euchd was jeoted
at in his day and hi book reuiaiotd
201)0 years unappreciated and but lit

found the work ready to his hands.
He in turn wrote a I n.ik, and closd u
with the remark: 'The honk is writ

and found Kepler's work, and it i
safe to say," said the piofessor, "hud

Influence: tho uast? And if Bcienee
hiiil no influence, what other influ
ences were there that were not de
rived from a belief in the supernatu
ral that can be credited with the pres
ent advanced atu'.e of civilization?
There is very little effectod by any
fixed laws or other influences except
when backed by a powerful organized
society. If any such existed that was
not Christian it is not prominePt in
history. No, it was not science or a
belief in fixed, unchangeable and self
existent laws, but faith in Christ, tha'
urged the apostles Peter and Paul to
atop into tho seething tnnss of corrup
tion that exiMad in pagan Home in
the days of Nero and found the soci
ety which raised woman from being a
slave and mere instrument f pleasure
t3 an equal t'ignity with man, and to
establish the Christian "family," the
keystone of the moral arch.
It was not scientists or Infidels, bnt
Christian missionaries that, after the
sacking of Home, returned with the
barbarians under Atilla and Alario
and settled with tuein at and around
what are now the great cities of Europe
from the Meditmarntnu to the frozen
ocean, and taught oar ancestors, agri
culture and how to raise the neces
saries of life. It Aiti no e tUer than
Christian influence that e ollocted the
chivalry of Europe nnder Charles Mat
tel to drive (lie Snrncen from Southern
Franco and Spain, or to organize the
fleet that fought the battle of Ipanto
and swent the Bloomy cresennt irom
the waiers of the Mediterranean.
There was nothing but Christian prin
ciplcs to induce the gal'itnt Sobinski
and his 30.000 brave Poles to march
southward, raise the siege of Vienna
and drive Bullf marr.and the uniipeak
alile Turk out of Western Europe, and
save onr civilization and our ecience,
too. Finally it is no! science or infi
delity, but Christianity, that ia com
batting and curbing socialism nnd all
the other isms lo which men are
driven by oppression aud poverty in
all populous cilieb.
Science le knowledgo verifW and
knovtledgn'is progresnive, and eauh
ginerttion has had doubtless nil that
was necessarv for It. Knowledge is
increased in the order of Providence,
and to-morrow iesuri to bring an ad

Tho truth of God remains forever. In
conclusion tho writer wishes lo say
that he is as much devoted to Boience
and loves it for its own rake ae ranch
as tho average man, but he has not
yet seen it proved that the chuicb has
combntted science or any advance of
