Among other things, he says "that the

"Hamlet" was the tcvound lecturer's
subject. His method was not the
usual one adopted by lilatfoim speak
ers in delivering a lecture It possessed
the lntei est lug and Instiuctlvo reci
tative featuie, fiequently und oppor
tunely used to Illustrate the lectuier's
conception of the rh.it jtter and tho
authot's powers of epri'ssiou of the
varlomi human ilitues nnd passions
Two thoughts are suggested to the
mind of the- listener after hearing the
lecture Plrst, why should theie bo so
much useless i est inch, debate and ar
gument about the Haeonlnu theoiy''
and, second. Is the piny the better
method of s-ludjlng the character of
IHmlet? The ictdlct of last r.Isht's
pudlence was that th' v had derived
tenfold more ! one-fit fiom tho lectin e
than they would fiom a well equipped
stage pioductlon of Hie tame.
Tin: i,i:ast undpustood.
Dr. Staffonl said, In n.irt "Hamlet
is the Hist Moiy in oui school dnvs that
vo ie.ul and tho laht ve understand.
It is told In all the I inguages of Pu
tope, and in none ot them does it lose
lnteiest Its origin was tho crude
htotj of crime leported by Danlli
eluonlcleis, but Shakespeare's dianiatl
z.itlou elevates the crude story Into a
"Theio must be a nile or theory
adopted by every student who desires
to appioneh Hamlet. When Shake
tpeaio creates a chaiaeter as a king,
he makes a, pet feet king, when lie- de
scribes a peasant, he also is perfect
Hamlet as a .specimen of mental ds
oi dor Is perfect, nnd henco the theotv
of his madness, or insanlt, has gained
cieVlence Hamlet, when a student at
WIttcnbuig, was given to soliloquy and
meditation, yet withal he was not of
buch a morlrid natuie as not to be able
to i Iso again w 1th all the v Igor of outh
nnd manhood after hai lug done obse
quious sonow- over his father's -e-malns,
weie it not for his mothers act
In manlug her late husband's brother,
Hamlet's uncle "
The speaker then gave a icry dram
atic tecltal of the ghost scene, after
which Hamlet Is dlscnmcd with tablet
and pent II lecording ivhnt he lias wit
nessed. This net, .said Di Station!, is
by the critics used as nn aigumtnt In
dicative of the Dane's insnnit, but
nccoidlng to the lecturer's theory It Is
evidence; of his sanity, and his madness
Is but feigned Hamlet's mother hav
ing pioved false to his lofty conception
of mother and woman, he had no una
to confide in, no one to seek advleo
fiom. He could not epeet Jt from his
faithful but foolish Pol.inlus

The third reason why Hamlet In con

Hamlet's mind so often descends, par

mankind fall to open the (rates of

life. Notwithstanding all tho Ills that

TIRED OF LIFE.
Body (o Dc Found in the River,
Read the Note on the
"I am tired of life. Tou will find
my body In the river."
Such was tho startling Inscription In
a note found yesterday near Mlnooka
In tho pocket of a lest that had been
nailed to a tree along the bunks of the
Lackawanna liver. Tho fateful mes
sage Is elated April 2C, ISO", and Is
signed "John IJrownson, Barbortovvn,
The note was found by a number of
oung men who were walking toward
Mlnooka After tho note had been read
the young men Immediately Informed
Hurges Watklns, of Taj lor borough,
of their Und Inquiry was made last
night and it was learned that a man
by tho nnmo of John Brownson once
lived in Old Torge and his whereabouts
has been a mystery for some time.
Uurgcss Watklns will today more catc
fully lnvest'gato the matter.
Tho peculiar part of the discovery is
that only a vest was found. It appears
unlikely thnt a man with suicidal in
tent would take off his coat and vest,
placo tho note In the vest, put the coat
on again and then jump in the river.
No man has been seen In Taylor lately
running about with his coat off and
only a i est on. This improbability w ill
be the more Intel esting If It later turns
out that John Brownson did really
thtovv himself Into tho Lackawanna
