Actors and actresses who make mistakes
In marriage do not usually have the moral
support or the public when tier so Into
court to have their mistakes measurably
corrected by the securing of decrees of
separation. So many stage people have
trifled with marriage and traded upon di
vorce that one Is generally regarded as a
natural sequence of the other.
"While It was doubtless the devout wish
of every admirer of Julia Marlowe that her
marriage to Robert Taber might prove an
exception to the rule, her petition for di
vorce, which has come at last, might have
had several million signers If the net
had asked for such reinforcement. Such
Is the affection and such the trust put In
this lovable and gifted woman by those
who know her or have come within the
range of her sweet personality and her
gracious art. It is doubtful whether any
other actress of the American stage ha3
inspired so large a degree of popular af
fection. It is taken for granted that when
a woman of Miss Marlowe's modesty and
sensibility braves the Are of the divorce
court she is entitled to what she asks.
Miss Marlowe evidently believed that she
would not need to give explanations, for
great effort was made to have the pro
ceedings kept secret. It has been learned,
however, that the "intolerable cruelty," re
ferred to in the first dispatches, is even
more significant than could have been be
lieved. Miss Marlowe charges her husband
with beating and choking her In his rage
over her professional popularity and tne
comparative inattention paid him by the
critics. The man who will strike a wom
an Is no better than a brute; but it seems
Incredible that even a man of brutish In
stincts would, under any condition of
frenzy, raise his hand against such a wom
an as Julia Marlowe. It is well for Robert
Taber that he is pursuing his profession
across the Atlantic just now, and it will
probably be as well for him to let consid
erable time elapse before he returns to
the American stage.
It is creditable to the dramatic writers of
the country that the separation of Mr. and
Mrs. Taber and the circumstances that led
to It were allowed to pass almost without
comment. Nearly all the facts have been
known In professional and critical circles
eer since the parting of the ways. For a
time the public was assured that the sepa
ration was only professional. This repre
sentation was not entirely insincere. It
was based upon the hope that there might
be a reunion. Regard for Miss Marlowe
prompted respect for her feelings and for
the possible restoration of her domestic
happiness.
Robert Taber Is an actor of conspicuous
attainment. He was by far the best lead
ing man Miss Marlowe ever had, and the
public liked' him better than any of his
successors. He could play a romantic role
with grace; "and fervor, and la several
character parts, such as Angus and Mal
vollo, he showed an Intelligent command
of eccentric delineation. He was tremen
dously lmbitious. and in marrying Miss
Marlowe, It would seem, by the light of
subsequent events, that he was governed
even more by ambition than by affection.
On the other hand Miss Marlowe's love for
her husband was strong and sincere. That
was made evident in various ways. In
spite of the protests of her friends and her
managers she allowed Mr. Taber to change
her professional name as well as her sur
name. In spite of evidences that this
change had been a mistake, and again in
the face of managerial and friendly pro
tests, she allowed Mr. Taber to have him
self billed with equal prominence.
But the ambitious Taber employed still
other means to use his gifted wife as a
professional stepping stone. "When he
made-the adaptation.!)! "For Bonnie Prince
Charlie" he curiled the limited role of
Mary In order to give himself better op
portunity as Angus, even going so far as
to violate dramatic sequence and theatrical
proprieties by making the only great scene
that fell to Mary, an ante-climax, to his
own forced theatrics.
Miss Marlowe and her husband might
still be together, the actreess enduring pa
tiently what some other wives have en
dured for men they have loved, but for
the managerial alternative placed before
her. ATter the success of "Bonnie Prince
Charlie," Mr. Charles Frohman, under
whose management Miss Marlowe had
passed, refused to conduct her affairs long
er unless there was a professional separa
tion. The manager has been severely criti
cised for this action, but he has been vin
dicated by the facts revealed in the divorce
petition and which he knew at the time.
Pending the decision of the "Vermont
Judge the admirers of Julia Marlowe will
entertain the wish that the petition of the
actress may be granted, and they will also
cherish a hope that, having no benefit from
her matrimonial experience save the satis
faction of escaping splnsterhood, she may
continue to enjoy the singleness of life that
best comports with her greatness of pur
pose. The all-conquering Paderewskl arrived In
New York last week to find that the ad
vance sales for 'his first concerts in that
city and Boston had reached $23,00!). Some
of the eager purchasers may want their
money back when they learn that the hyp
notic Pole has lost his splrituelle appear
ancethat he is, indeed, almo3t fat. But
the Idealists may take courage In the news
that his hair is longer than ever and has
grayed Interestingly. It would seem, that
a change from lemon diet came with the
change from bachelorhood; but It Is a
tribute to the great pianist that these
changes, both.' of which were pretty gener
ally known before his arrival, had no ap
parent effect' upon the extravagant senti
mentality that has attached to his pres
ence In this country since his first appear
ance here. He was entertained by one of
New York's fashionable clubs one after
noon last week at the Manhattan hotel,
and a crowd of 600, composed mostly of
women. Jammed the corridors to catch a
glimpse of the "wizard" or hear a few
notes of the music that came from the ex
clusive apartments where the pianist was
being entertained. In Boston, where Pade
rewskl Is to give two afternoon recitals
nes- the end of the month, most extraordi
nary Interest was shown In the advance
sale, which opened last Monday morning.
As early as 3 o'clock Saturday afternoon
the line began to form, and It was main
tained and it gradually increased, through
Saturday night, Sunday and Sunday night,
and by Monday evening every seat was
sold for both recitals.
Among the other cities to be visited by
Paderewskl are Philadelphia, Troy, Wash
ington. Pittsburg, Cincinnati, Richmond,
Cleveland. Louisville, Chicago, Kansas
City, New Orleans and San Francisco.
After his American tour ho will go to
Dresden to superintend the production of
his opera, which Is Hungarian In theme,

Hall Calne's tremendously successful
play, "The Christian," dramatized from his
own novel of the same name, will be pre
sented for the first time In this city on
Tuesday night, December 12, at the Coatcs
for an engagement of live nights and two
afternoons. "The Christian" as a play
differs somewhat from the story, but only
to the extent necessary to meet dramatic
requirements. Glory Quayle appears as
E resented in the book. In the story John
torm Is a controversial character, a per
sonage whose somber attributes as de
scribed by the author present him in the
light of a religious fanatic Holding in
mind that people go to the theater for
amusement and not to be preached at from
behind the footlights, Mr. Calne has re
lieved the stage John Storm of hlspro
nounced religious characteristics, and pre
sents him as a noble, self-sacrificing man,
the love existing between Glory Quale
and him forming the central motive of the
dramatic story. Yet the changes which
nave been made in the character of Storm,
and la the general construction of the play
ItMlf. will not. It la said, disappoint tht
readers of the book who go to the theater
to see the story and Its characters trans
lated to the stage.
"The Christian" is presented in a pro
lotrue and four acts. The scene of the Dro-
logue Is laid in the tilting ground In the
ruins oi I'eei casue. xsie ui juun, urjgiu
ened by the romantic atmosphere of that
quaint little Manx island. Two years pass.
The first act of the play takes place in the
saloon of the Colosseum music hall. In
London, where Glory Quayle has made her
debut as a music nail singer; tne second,
in the clubroom of St. Mary Magdalene's
church, Soho, where John Storm has be
come a. worker in the slums of the East
end of London; the third. In Glory's apart
ments In "The Garden House," Clement's
inn, London, and the fourth In the club
room of Storm's church. These scenes
were painted from photographs and orlg-
Effle ElUler will nlay Glory Quayle. and
Kansas City people will doubtless be de
lighted to learn that they are to see her
In that part. Miss Ellsler is one' of the
most talented women on the American
stage, and should make a most attractive
and sympathetic Glory Quayle.
James M. Colvllle will play John Storm.
Frank "Weston will be. the Horatio Drake
In this special company. He is well re
membered for his excellent work In sup
port of Effle Ellsler In the past. The cast,
which is said to be very strong, and which
seems to have given great satisfaction

"Nothing succeeds like success" Is a trite
saying, but it was probably never better
illustrated than in the case of Charles
Hoyt's cleverest work. "A TriD to China
town." which was first produced on a
western tour, ana aiterwara at xioyrs
theater. New York. November 14, 1S9L
When the piece was first put upon the
stage, even Mr. Hoyt did not expect of It
more than a fifty-nights' run; but It mado
an instantaneous hit, and it continued on
and on until It had reached 70S perform
ances, being the longest continuous run
in the history of American theatricals. Its
success on the road Is known to all thea
tergoers, and in England and Australia
"A Trip to Chinatown" has almost dupli
cated Its record of this country. Play
wright Hoyt has turned out a score or
more of comedy successes, but "A Trip to
Chinatown" has proved his greatest suc
cess. Commencing this afternoon, at the
Grand opera house. Hoyt's revival of this
popular comedy will be presented, and the
atergoers are assured that the new "A
Trip to Chinatown,'" with Its innumerable
novelties. Its beauty. Its prodigality of mu
sic and its scenic effects will surpass the
original production and prove a revelation
in musical and farcical comedies. The
cast will be as follows:

There Is probably no woman on the
vaudeville stage on whom so many ad
jectives and so much poetry have been
lavished as on Paplnta. Wherever she
gpes this artiste is fairly bombarded with
pleasant epithets, and she has a scrap
book which Is literally plastered with poetic
effusions, meritorious and otherwise. This
Is not so difficult to understand, for there
Is something in the beautiful dances which
Paplnta presents to draw forth admira
tion and Imagination. Paplnta never tires,
never stops working, never hesitates to
spend money to prepare new effects, and
so there Is a never-ending variety in her
dances. During the week which starts
this afternoon Paplnta is to head the bill
at the Orpheum, and she promises that
she will have some new and striking feat
ures. Two old favorites will be Caron
and Herbert, who will make their second
appearance at the Orpheum and will of
fer that unique acrobatic act which has
made them famous all over this country
and Europe. If there Is any good In the
clown Fred Herbert seems to have discov
ered It, and the act never fails 'to bring
out much laughter and applause. John T.
Thome and Grace Carleton are down to
give a short comedy, "The Substitute,"
which Is cald to be an amusing bit. Flor
ence Henri King is a viollnlste who has
been praised by the critics during the
few months -she has been In vaudeville.
Miss King Is a young girl with a classic,
thoughtful face and she wins her audiences
by her simple manner as well as by her
playing, in which she excels in expression,
If not In technique.
Billy Rice and H. W. Frlllman, the always-welcome
minstrel comedian and the
popular basso, will be on hand with a
sketch adapted to their needs and pretty
sure to be enjoyable. Others will be the
Chappelle sisters. In songs and dances,
and the Haglhara family of Japanese
equilibrists. The order of the programme
will be:
Chappelle sisters, songs and dances.
Billy Rice and IL W. Frlllman. minstrel sketch.
Caron and Herbert, acrobats and pantomlmlsts.
Paplnta, In spectacular dances.
Florence Henri King, viollnlste.
Thorne and Carleton, In the comedietta, "The Sub
stitute." Haglhara troupe, Japanese equilibrists.
"Alabama," this week's bill at the Audi
torium, ought to be particularly welcome
at this house. It is one of the best cf
American plays, and has Inspired some
thing akin to affection among those who
have witnessed Its presentation at one time
or another within the last ten years. Its
distinctive Southern character, its lovable
personages. Its beautiful treatment of sec
tional prejudice and Its pretty stage pic
tures are all features that linger in re
membrance, while Its quaint comedy and
beautiful dialogue enhance the pleasure of
the performance. This play was first given
here by the original Palmer company, and
since that time has been presented by
several organizations of lesser merit, but
It has never been cheapened by Indifferent
acting. The standard of previous perform
ances will be taken into consideration in
the Woodward production. A good cast Is
said to have been selected, and appropriate
stage settings are promised.
Robert Barrett, who years ago was a
Kansas Cityan, and whose wife. Belle
Gaffnev, recently played here In "At Plney
Ridge," has been specially engaged
for the role of Colonel Preston,
which he has played with this
year's traveling company. Mr. Luke Cos
grove, another Kansas Cityan, who has
not played here in a number of years, will
be the Raymond Page, and the old mem
bers of the company will be well placed,
several of them assuming characters suffi
ciently different from their accustomed
lines to arouse more than ordinary curi
osity as well as sympathetic Interest. The
complete cast will be as follows:
Colonel Preston Robert Barrett
Colonel Moberly Wilson Enos
Squire Tucker Hal Darls
Captain Davenport .James Fulton
Mr. Armstrong.". Charles Lothian
Lathrop Page Harry a Long
Raymond Page Luke Cosgrove
Decatur Harry Beresford

The principal musical event of the com
ing week will be the Apollo Club concert
at the Coates House, Monday night. The
membership sale has been unusually large
and what seats remain yet unsold are being
eagerly secured. The audience promises
to be the largest and ths most representa
tive In the history of the club's rnnrnrrs
The club has rehearsed faithfully and Is
In excellent condition, both vocally and
numerically, to sing the numbers set down
on the proeramme. The conductor. Ed-
ward Kreiser, has worked hard to bring
tnp singing up to tne present High stand
ard. The soloist, Helen Buckley, will
doubtless prove a most attractive feature
of the programme If her success In East
ern cities mav be taken as any criterion.
She Is In constant demand by societies
anil clubs all over the i.ast, and has sung
with most gratifying success In Europe.
She will arrive here Monday morning from
Chicago.
The programme fairly teems with good
tnings, old and new, as zouows:
"Bedouin Song" (Foote). the Apollo Club.
Aria, "Jeanne d'Arc" (Tschalkowsky), Helen Buck

Blanche Walsh wis lucky enough to encounter in
Montreal some ot that kind of demonstrative adula
tion which Is far bygone In most cities. The mayor
went on the stare to present a floral wreath ora-
'torlcally and her carriage was drawn from the thea
ter to her hotel by young men.
Nellie McHenry has revlTed the old piece in which
she and Nate Salsbury used to frolic together,
"Green Room Fun." It has been brought "up to
date," after a fashion, and the songs are generally
new, but It has an old-fashioned flavor they say.
This was almost the first of the modern variety
farces.
Kudyard Klpllng'a patriotic poem, "The Absent-
"Winded Beggar." Is belrg recited, or sung to music.
by Arthur Sullivan, in halt the theaters in London.
Mrs. Beerbohm Tree, Mrs. Brown Potter and Mrs.
Langtry are among Its most famous exponents.
Georga Brodericlc Is to sing It at Miner's Harlem

Queen Elizabeth of Rcumanla, who has been very
HI but Is now better, has written the libretto of an

the National theater at Bucharest In a few weehi.
Mme. Nuovlna has been engaged for the principal

recently presented to the museum at the grand opera
the piano gien to her by Albonl In 1S65. On the In
strument Is a plate which the singer placed there,
bearing her name and the date ot her debut In 1S49
and the fact that she presented the piano to her
friend. Albonl studied all her operatic roles on this
piano.
The Orpheum announces what It calls "Santa Claus
week" for the seven days beginning December 17.
At each performance there will be given away twenty
presents, among which are included handsome clocks,
lamps, vases and bits ot bric-a-brac for the older
folks, and at the matinees dolls, tool chests, teasels
and toys to please the children. Each purchaser of
a ticket will have a chance at one of the presents.
A very Interesting double bill will be given at
the Auditorium the week ot December 17. It will
consist of "Incog," one of the most popular com
edies ever glen by the Woodward stock, and Stanis
laus Strange's "A Man of the World," a one act
sketch that was given here with "Incog" several
seasons ago when Charles Dickson was making one
of his earliest starring toun. The little play Is
one of the cleverest and most Interesting ever seen
on the American stage, a veritable gem in construc
tion and sentiment. It will prove a very pleasing
novelty at the Auditorium. c
Mr. Willis Granger, who has been leading man for
the Auditorium stock company, will leave to-night
for New York, where he will create the leading
tola in the big melodramatic production, "The Bow
ery After Dark," which Is to be brought out at
the Star theater on Christmas day. Although Mr.
Granger handed his resignation to Manager Wood
ward early In November and desired to be released
after two weeks, he was persuaded to remain until
a successor could be found. That he leaves many
friends behind has been evident the past week, every
audience giving him what might be called an ovation.
SIgnor Glacomo Puccini has Just finished the music
ot the opera which the librettist. SIgnor Bolto, has
evolved from VIctorlen Sard em's well known drama,
"La Toica." SIgnor Bolto has made some altera
tions In the plot, and he claims to have simplified
It and to have omitted certain details which seem
to be symbolical. Sardou keeps Tosca off the stage
while her lover, Mario, Is shot; In B olio's version
she Is present. When she finds that the Infamous
Scarp la has treacherously deceived her and that
Mario is dead, she seizes a dagger and stabs him,
crying, as she leaps from the window of the Cast el
St. Angelo: "Scarp la. we shall meet again before
the Judgment aeat."
After fifteen weeks "Jake" Rosenthal has decided
that "Dear Old Charlej" is not a money maker
and last week was the last of the tour. From
Washington the company went to New York, where
rehearsals will immediately begin on a new three
act farce captioned "Which Is Watt?" In this effort
1 Mr. Boniface will assume the double role of a saint
and a sinner, simulating twin nroiners, wnue .Mr.
Ober, Miss Osterman and the remainder of the com
pany will be well cast. The bookings ot "Dear Old
Charley" will be filled with the new three act farce,
which Is founded on the old theme of mistaken
Identity, as "Jake" has decided that the public
knows what It wants and that It. Is an expensive
, experiment to attempt to educate the masses,
t Lewis Morrison will give his big production of
"Frederick the Great" at the Grand opera house one
week from to-day and will continue the same bill
to and Including Thursday evening. The play was
probably suggested by the production made upon
the same theme by Henry Irving. It is said to be
a fine drama, elaborately produced. It so happens
that Mr. Mor.sons "Faust" company, which has
been touring the west lor some time, win be rest
ing In Kansas City next week. It has been arranged
to give this dramatic spectacle Friday and Saturday
nights with the regular "Faust" company, but with
Mr. Morrison in his old role of Mephlsto and Flor
ence Roberts in her old part of Marguerite, which
she will play for the 2,000th time in this engage
ment. Ryan and Richfield, who have never appeared In
Kan tas City In vaudeville, are to head the bill at
the Orpheum for the week which starts with the
matinee Sunday, December 17. They will give a
little farce, "A Headless Man." Hanigan, the
!tt amp Juggler, who Is both dextrous and cemic,
will also be In the bill, he having but recently re
turned from a successful European trip. Jerome
and Alexis will have an act called "The Frog and
the Ltzzard." Cherldam Simpson, who will be re
member ed as one of the clever young women In
"The Pasting Show," will sing characteristic songa
and will play the piano In an original way. Leo
Carle will give a drama without any assistance, as-
aumlng a wide range o characters with quick
) changes. Burton's dogs and Frank and Don. come
1 dlans, will complete the bill.

An Imaginative sentimentalist has hit upon a way
to accumulate a museum of theatrical valuables. HU
method curiously blends llteralness and a large mar
gin of mental reservation. He approached Richard
waaEneia-a aresser tne other aay with tftts proposi
tion: "I am a collector of famous men's belonilnes.
I want your assistance in adding some Mansfield
curios to my stock. No. there Is no theft about it:
jou will not even have to mention the matter to
your master. There are two things I wish to have,
the cane Mansfield as Cyrano used In the last act
and the purse he threw to the actors for stopping
'Clorise in the first act. Now I am going to have
duplicates of these made. You substitute them for
the ones Mansfield is accustomed to use nightly. He
will never notice the difference. It wilt be worth
your while. He need but use them once and they
iu ue Historical, ana it can be irathiully said they
are tne cane and purse used by Mansfield." It is
creditable to the average human Integrity to aay
that the proposition was indignantly rejected.
Sajs the Rome correspondent of the New York
Dramatic Mirror: "A French Hamlet always runs
the risk of being ridiculous. A female French Ham
let Is necessarily ridiculous." So sajs a well known
critic, and he Is right, as every one must acknowl
edge who has seen Bernhardt In the part, which she
travesties and nothing more. In Italy, where she Is

Mme. Calire Is anxious for another peep Into the

lie recehed a message from the diva sajlng: "Come
to me by the first train," and the proressor was a
Passenger on the afternoon limited for the East
Mme. Calve'i anilely is roused by a sitting given
her by Professor Reese two days before she left Chi
cago. It nas predicted then that the singer would
not appear publicly after 1S04. The professor told
her that Mav 25 of that .r Kh vim .-

be so adjusted as to mako a union possible. "Mme.
Calve blushed and Meraed delighted. Three years
ago at the Plaza hotel in New York the professor
told Mme. Calve that her mother's sister had been
Killed In Paris by a runaway horse and described
the accident. The neit morning a cablegram veri
fied the assertion, and since then the singer has been
an ardent believer In Proressor Reese's power. Among
the professor's clientele are Richard Croker and the
Prince of Wales, each ot whom presented the seer

While a certain dramatic license has been taken
in formulating the characters lntrodtipMl In "Fr..-
erlck the Great," Lewis Morrison's new spectacular
.j, nuiui win ue given at xne urana next week,
the historical atmosphere Is said to remain almost
intact- Voltaire Is presented at the clever, brainy
and sarcastic wit and he makes an excellent foil
to Frederick for the explosions of repartee which
became characteristic of every meeting of these two
mentally pugncious wits. General Hulaen, the staid
little Prussian, who was a most valued associate to
Frederick during the seven sears' war. Is also pre.
sented and the happy disposition of this diminutive
man. Dr. Maupertula, the astute professor, la prom
inently in evidence. Princess Amelia, the king's
favorite sister, is presented as the lovable woman
who.wlth dignity and grace, presided over the house
hold of his majesty. La Barbarina. the Italian
dancer, who came so near overthrowing the court
of Italy, and who afterwards gave the gossips of
Prussia so much food for scandal. Is Introduced with
the prominence commensurate with her career at the
court of Frederick. These and all the characters
are clothed in historlcaly correct costumes, made
from designs from the original plates In the Museum
of Art, Berlin, thus affording an excellent opportun.
Ity for elaborate toilettes and strikingly handsome
uniforms.
Mrs. Jessie Bartlett DaWa not only has given up
her intended starring tour, but In a letter published
In a current dramatic paper she bas explained why
she changed her mind. "Everythlnc was under way
for my starring tour," writes Mrs. Davis, "and I
was working about sixteen hours a day or a little
over, and It was about a thousand time, more work
than I had eter dreamed there was to do In this
whole world, and I positively had to back down and
out- I feel now that if anyone should ever ask mo
which I would rather do. build a railroad or star.
there would be a new railroad under way at once. I
didn't say anything about my determined change of
mind because there has been so much newspaper taU
already that Is not true that I felt that no one would
want to read anything more about me for awhile, at
least. The Chicago backers of the enterprise thought
I was a much better business woman than I am. and
they consulted me about everything and I got so

HOBNOBBING WITH QUEEN LIL
A Yonthful Kentncklan With Little
Reapect for Deposed
Royalty.
From the New York Sun.
"Tounsr M. Berry, son of Congressman
AI. Berry, of Kentucky," said a naval of
ficer who was In Honolulu when the Ha
waiian flag was replaced by the stars and
stripes, "was In Honolulu In some kind of
official capacity when I was there once,
and was on particularly good terms with
Queen Llliuokalanl and her entire court.
And I may say that In this regard he was
about the only American who was. How
he got there I don't know, but he Is one
of your Irresistible kind of Kentucklans,
who conquer admiration in spite of all ob
stacles. He could say anything he pleased
and do all manner of startling things, but
that only seemed to make the queen's peo
ple fonder of him, and when he offered to
take me to call on her majesty at a little
reception she gave in the afternoon after
the flag ceremonies were over I felt that
I was safe in accepting. It was a very in
formal affair and we were soon in the royal
presence and I was duly Introduced. Then
the young man suddenly upset me in four
teen places at once, and gave me a fit of
the nervous embarrassments.
" 'Well, your majesty,' he said, in that
boyish and breezy manner of his, not less
at home in a queen's palace than on a blue
grass farm, 'how does it feel to be out of
a Job?"
"I felt like going through the floor, but
Berry never turned a hair, and the crown
less queen In quite the same spirit greatly
relieved my embarrassment by responding:
'"Oh, Mr. Berry, you are such a Jollier.'
It was slightly slangy perhaps for roy
alty, but it was the right thing to say, and
I read the riot act to Berry on my own be
half when I got home."
Goetlie'a Love,
From the Philadelphia Ledger.
Goethe's last Ideallstlo love, TJlrlke
Prelfraulein von Lcvetzow, departed this
life yesterday at the Bohemian home of
her baronial ancestry, Schloss Triblltz,
near Lobosltz, in the 9Cth year of her age.
A few weeks ago the German literary
world celebrated the 150th anniversary of
the birth of German v's creates nnet niui
philosopher, and it is only now that she
sorrows at tne Dier or one who kept alive
to the very last the flame of the immortal
bard's impassioned adoration for the fair
daughters of Eve. In their proverbial
sentimentality the Germans have devoted
volumes to the nonogenarlan's last love.
Tile sage of Weimar first met his Ulrike
at Marienbad and later on at Carlsbad, the
famous Bohemian spas, where. In company
with her mother, sweet seventeen was
passing the season. The epitaph inscribed
on the tombstone of one of Goehte's earli
est loves, an Alsatian beauty, Frlederika
von Sesenheim, might appropriately be ap
plied to the memory of the nonogenarlan
lady who has now passed away:
"Ein Strahl der Dlchtung flel auf sle.
So relch, das er TJnsterbllchkeit ihr lieh."
To TJlrlke von Levetzow the Germans
owe Goethe's magnificent "Trllogie der
Leidenschaft," composed on his becoming
acquainted with her. To the last she re
mained true to the memory of the poet in
single blessedness, her life being devoted
to deeds of charity and to the cultivation
of literature, the poor on her estate and a
small and most exclusive circle of highly
gifted friends alone sharing her much
sought after society.

Mr. Edward Lauterbach seemsto have
learned something from his experience
with corporations which It would be well
for other recipients of corporation bounty
to know.
It Is the custom of street railway com
panies to Issue a passbook to employes.
Mr. Lauterbach is attorney for the Third
Avenue Railway Company, and therefore
is entitled to a passbook. But he Insists
upon paying his fare like an ordinary In
dividual. Recently he had occasion to ride on a
Third avenue car and the conductor, who
recognized him, expressed surprise at re
ceiving a fare from . him instead of a
coupon. Mr. Lauterbach explained his po
sition: "When I work for a concern I ex
pect to be paid for everything I do. If I
received any favors from my employers I
would be expected to return them In some
way.
"Mr. Hart and other officials have often
urged me to take a passbook, but I prefer
to pay my fare and be able to present my
till tor servlcM with & clear coniclenc,'
