Bepresentatlon of t London Theate la
An interesting dramntio rolio has Just
been sent to the British Museum on ft loan
by theUnlvorsity of Utrecht, says the Lon
don Times. It is a representation and
description of the Swan Theater in South-
wark, in 1K96. The picture was discovered
in a manuscript work in the Utrecht library.
The author was one Van Bucholl, who Ailed
this commonplace book with notes on vari
ous subjects. Among others is the picture
of the Swan, with lettcr-pross on the op
posite page. The formor is described as
drawn ex observalio nibus Londonensibns
Johannes De Wilt, and a point of doubt in
connection with it is whether the picture
was actually copied from ono drawn by De
Witt, or whother it was drawu by Van
Buchelt from oral dosoriutions by Do Witt
The latter was a Dutch scholar and preb
endary of the sixteenth century, who
traveled widely in foreign countries (proba
bly because ho was a Roman Catholic, for
whom Holland would not be comfortable
lust then), and noted what be saw. The
theater is represented as containing three
galleries, ono above the other, with a tiled
roof above the ton one, but open to the sky
in the center. The stage is supported on
wooden posts, painted like marble, "so
that," remarks De Witt, " it might deceive
the most sagacious. " It is bolieved to have
been removable, so that the amphitheater
ntzht be free whonover it was wanted
for bull or bear baiting. The green
morn ia represented as an erection in
the space boblnd tbe Stage and apparent
ly opon to the public viowr. Do Witt de
scribed it to Vau Buchell as built solidly of
Dints and possrsinp; qccommodation for
8,000 persons. It is possible that a Urge
number could stand in the amphitheater on
alovol with tbo slugo, In no other way can
re account for this surprising statement.
He savs there were four theaters in Lon
don which dorived their names from vari
ous sipns and each had performances every
day. The two principal ones wore on the
south side oftherlfer and were called the
Rose and the Swan Shakespeare' a Globe
did not then exist-and there were two in
the north in Bishopagute street. A fifth
was used for bull and bear baiting, and ac
cording to De Witt "presents a most de
lightful spectacle." The best, he says, waa
the Bwau, of which he gives a picture, be
cause of its accommodation and its archi
tecture, which seemed to him to be a sur
vival of the Roman amphitheater, and it
'because of this latter circumstance that
Van Buohell preserved the picture. In the
play in progress on the stage two ladles are
in conversation, and soma one enters to
them, probably a mossenger; but it is prob
able that this Is afanoy scene and comes
from no Elizabethan drama. Thi drawing
and letter-pross were brouvht to light by
Dr. Carl Gacdoru, who has published with
v. Mueller, of Bremen, a fuc-sluillo of both,
with adiscussion on the subject in a pam
phlet entitled, "Zur Kentniss der Allen
stlschen Buhne," which is intended aa
contribution to Bhukespeurean literature.
It has been generously lent by the Utrecht
University authorities to t he British Museum
for the inspection of students of the Eliza
A QUICK COURTSHIP.
Bow aa Kooentrto Illinois Farm? Wooed

Jacob Htrawo, of Jacksonville, DX, was
during his life-lime ths largest farmer In
Illinois, and a very eccentric man. The cir
cumstanoee of his marriage were as foliowai
Outside of Jacksonville, oouple of
miles, perhaps, there lived quit respect
able family. This family employed a servant
glrL Graceful and neat in the extreme, and
possessing very fair share of Intelligence,
this girl was a match for whomsoever
might take her unto himself, Jacob aaw
this flower, and determined to possess It.
One day he rode up to the door of the resi
dence of the fair maid, alighted from his
horse, and knocked with the butt end of his
whip. The lady of the house answered his
summons, and immediately upon her mak
ing ber appearance, Jacob asked for the
The servant girl came. Jacob said:
"I want wife and I have picked yon out
as tbe most proper person for that position
1 can possibly find. I've never spoken to
yon before, butt lien thut makes no differ
ence. I'll give you one week to decide."
Tbe girl blushed and was dumbfounded.
Jacob mounted h s horse and rode away.
The girl inquired into Mr. Btrawn's charac
ter and standing, and waa advised by those
with whom sho lived to accept the offer of
bis hand. Punctually, ft week later, Jacob
rode up to tho door and knocked again with
Ids whip and asked:
-"Is It no or yes!"
Bluhhingly the girl answered la ft low
tone, but quite distinctly I
' "Weli," said Jacob, "let's see ; we'll get
"married the day after to-morrow, Wednes
day. Here's some money to buy wedding
outfit," and be threw ber a purse contain

The oouple did get married on Wednes
day, and no happier pair, during their life
time, was to be met with in the Bute of
The Cormorant of Countries.
Great Britain is the cormorant of conn
tries. Tho splondid trope used by Webster
to describe tbe extent of its dominion in
over quarter of tbe globe is truer to-day
than at the time of its utterance half cent
ury ago. Tbe sun never seta upon the scar
let uniform or the tax-gatherer for the Brit
ish crown. Out of the little island, once ft
conquest of the Roman Empire, has spread
colonising and conquering people whose
dominion hss spread to worlds unknown
by Alexander and Csraar. No continent is
free from Its sway. From the little Island
of Heligoland, less thsn mifc In extent,
held under the vory frown of Bismarck,
and the allghtly larger fastness of Gib
raltar, which is grasped firmly In the very
face of Spain, Great Britain, having pos
sessions in every continent and in every
group of Islands, ascends to complete and
intlleas dominion over the peoples of India.
The mere schedule would till a column. The
total area la nearly 10,000,000 miles; the to
tal population only loss thsn 275,000,000.
Herbert's Famous tfyma.
When Bishop Herbert's famous mission-
' ary hymn, "From Greenland's Icy Mount
ains," which he wrote in 1834, first reached
thla country, ft lady in Charier ton was much
Impressed with tbe beauty of It, and pap
tioularly anxious to find a tune suited to lb

chanced to remember that in a bank down
the street waa a young clerlr who had con
siderable reputation as musical genius.
8he sent ber son to the clerk with the re
quest that he write tune to fit it. In Just
half an hour tbe boy came back with the
hymn, and ths melody thus dashed off in hot

The young clerk was Lowell Mason.

One of the best testimonials to the value of the Estey
Organs is the fact that, notwithstanding the very many
Organ enterprises that have
ployes of the Estey s, the business of this original maker
continues to grow. It is the largest reed Organ Factory
in the world j turns out a completed organ every eight min
utes each day. Because of their peculiar sweetness and
volume of tone, thoroughness
styles, these Organs hold the
increasing vigor. Uur opponents claim
"just as good as the estey"
but no man wishes to say "he is prepared to furnish a
better." Great numbers have

selection, "THE ESTEY." V '
