pushes eveiv paslon to Its limit and

The n101.1l of the pla is the pointing
out of the supiemncy of the mtual law,
the lectuier iiigued Crime, lemoise,
punishment is the epitome ot the tale
Macbeth was disposed to bo a good
man. To make hinun villain, as do
some critics, Is to tlestiov the .signiil
eance of the play. Macbeth was hon
orably ambitious; he vn tempted, he
fell. Such is the chaiactei. He and
Duncan were about equally entitled to
succeed Malcolm. Duncan was pie
f ened, Duncan moved to be a weak
king. The gigantic Macbeth natuially
thought how much bettei light he had
to be king than Duncan. Young Mal
colm is named Duke of Noithumbei
land, which cairled with it the right
of succession to the ciown. The only
way now left for him to come to the
throne It to take It. There was am
bition, gradual development of temp
tation and finally the fall. Macbeth
was self-con uptetl, as Is cveiy bad
AP.U1VAL OF DPNCAX.
Just nt the time when the tempta
tion has masteied Macbeth, Duncan
comes to the Macbeth castle. Lady
Macbeth all while Is unmoved, Mnc
beth's uood nntuie is stilling within
him. He tan not lest In the pitsence
of 'als intended victim. He goes out
to think it over. The thought toi lures
him. His filend, his kinsman, his
king, most of all, his host If the cir
cumstnnces weie only dlffeient Not
thiough fear, but by the dictates of
his conscience he concludes not to do
It. To make Macbeth a cold-blooded
minder would be like telling the In
telligence of the w 01 Id that in Hamlet
It has been philosophizing on the lav
lugs of a madman for 400 jeais. He
has a conscience. The good and bad
nie stiuggllng within him for mastery.
Lady Macbeth, divining what Is go
ing on. aIo leaves the banquet hall and
seeks out her husband She culls him
i cowaul, telling him he hns alieaily
fallen by willing the deed, hut dales
not eany It out. He does not defy
the taunt He will do it.
The descil'itlon or the tc-nlble night
which the poet conjuies up for the
need Is Intel estlngly elaborated upon
by the lectuier. Then, with a recita
tion of the passage "Is this n daggi-r
I see befoie me?" and timely com
ments, he fuither proves the fallacy
of the allegation that Macbeth was
"old-blooded Then again, for this
same purpose and incidentally to bring
out the will power of Lady Maebeth,
he enacted the scene when Macbeth
returns with the bloody dagger the
man all teiror, the woman the puson
Klcatlon of triumph This passoge, be
ginning "Dlds't hear a noise?" Is the
most terrible scene In tho teirlble hag
edy, Dr Stafford claims, and the thrill
ing way In which he acted it made
his heureis In peifect ngreement with
him. No finer piece of highly emotion
al work could be desired.
Who, but Shakespeaie, could have
Introduced In the veiy beginning of a
play such a climax and et sustain

UHSTLKSS AND FKArtFUL.
After this Macbeth would be a good
king, and was disposed to be such but
couldn't. To "be safely thus" Is now
troubling him. H Is restless nnd fear
ful, The great physical giant fairly
quails In the banquet scene. "Mood
will have blood," grndually Infiltrates
Itself Into him, and an unspeakably Ir
itpiesslble melancholy overcomes his
His craving, in his speech with his
wife's physician, for some "sweet ob
livious antidote," and his remorseful
beseeching "Turn buck thy universe
mil give me estertlny" are pitiful rev
elations of his forsaken and forlorn
condition. He cannot icpent for the
price the sacilflco of his kingdom he
v 111 not pay.
The playwright will not let him pass
nway detested. We pity him In his
death As Macduff stands with venge
ful sword nbove him. we find sneak
'ng Into our heart a sense of pity that
.Mich a great man should come to such
n icgrettnble end.
Lady Macbeth, the speaker contend
ed, was not as bad as her words, or
even action nt first glance, paint her.
"I had killed him myself had he not
looked so like my father," tells that
she has nffectlon. She exhausted her
possibilities in one great nctlon; then
s!'e became 1111 Inuetlve being, prey to
remorse, but uncomplaining.
Ilanquo Is the contemptible character
of the play. Dr. Staffotd contended,
and Macduff is the noble character.
Hnnqiio wns n sneak nnd coward, will
ing to profit by Macbeth's crimes. He
knew of the Intended murder but did
nothing to prevent It, nor nfterwards
did he move to punish it. He saw In
It a help to the fulfillment of the proph
ny that he would father a great race
of kings. Macduff was the patriot, the
tender man, the avenging wan lor. He
could feel nml act.

Rev James Hushes, fotmetly of
Klmbeily, South Africa, but now of
Seianton, dellvetctl a lecture on "South
Afi lea, the Land of Gold and Dln
monds." In the Wuyne Avenue Haptlst
church last nisht. It was an address
that held the t'loe intention of the
audience fiom beginning to end.
Mr. Hushes said there was room for
millions of people In South Africa
the greatest gold and diamond piodue
Ing country In the wot Id, nnd one of
the best openings for the Investment
of capital, for all Impnitlul, competent
experts have Fiild that the country Is
llch In nearly all kinds ot minerals,
and that the soli with pinper and ex
tensive Iirlgntlon is capable of ptoduc
Ing an abundance both foi man nnd
beast. Mechanics, builders, carpen
ters, and especially miners, are nil well
paid fm their labor
It Is true that the laboi market, for
such men, la too often glutted. This
fact is duo not to the limited extent
of the lesourees of the countiy, but to
the want of moie enteipilse on the
pait of capitalists and to the enor
mous influx of wmklngmeii fiom neatly
every zone of this rolling globe. The
almost limitless lesouices of the coun
try have only been tnpped and the
population Is exceedingly small for
such nn extent of teirltoiy. In Cape
Colony, which embraces an men of
250,000 sounie miles the population Is
smaller than that of Gteater New
York. Con.sldeilng the fact that there
are but very few manufnctoiles In the
whole land, the cost of living Is fnlily
moderate, but the domestic comfort of
the white population Is far Inferior to
what we llnel In older countries.
DANGHRS AND HARDSHIPS
Mr. Hushes refened lo some of the
tlangeis and hardships to which the
white people nie subject The heat Is
sometimes veiy intense. He took his
wife and family one day oul into 11
country district foi the put pose of ren
deilng some assistance to a young min
ister who felt verv deeply the loneli

any but black Knlllis nnd a few sutly
