PROF. CLARK'S READING.
Most Favorable Criticism Evoked
By His Dramatic Ability.
Grand Rapids (Mich.) Herald.
Professor S. H. Clark of the Uni
versity of Chicago gave a reading of
Stephen Phillips' "Ulysses," before an
audience composed almost entirely
of teachers in the public schools of
this city; also members of the board
and others interested in educational
Professor Clark is a dramatic read
er of great intellectual force, keen,
interpretive insight, strong power,
and withal, is gifted with that sub
tle element called, for lack of a bet
ter term, magnetism. Professor
Clark's voice is also of a rich, well
modulated quality, which expressed
the various shades of emotion and de
grees of passion with equal ease and
Mr. Clark is notably free from af
fectation of mannerisms, and he is
at all times simple, direct, and nat
Stephen Phillips' "Ulysses" is
strongly dramatic, yet Mr. Clark's
rendering was never overacted. He
was at no time inclined to "tear a
passion to tatters," but the dramatic
climaxes were strong and forceful.
The literary quality also was re
vealed with a most appreciative clear
ness. He -gave it all a vitalizing
touch. He made it appeal to the im
agination with a vividness which was,
in a way, creative.
GENIUS GONE ASTRAY.
Comments Evoked by the Pronounce
ment of a Chicago Professor.
From the Chicago Inter Ocean.
Prof. Cumnock, of Northwestern,
is one of the great living elocution
ists. This fact is recognized not only
all along our beautiful north shore,
but along our beautiful south shore.
as far south as the Midway.
His masterly comand of a musical
voice, his inimitable gesture, his su
perb powers of imitation, his thor
ough grasp of the outward manifesta
tions of all the humr , emotions
known in Evanston, are qualities that
make him a favorite in the education
al and social life of the center of sub
Prof. Cumnock. moreover, is an
elocutionist of the advanced school.
The time was, perhaps, when he
read such pieces as "Curfew Shall
Not Ring Tonight," "Bingen on the!
Rhine," "The Village Blacksmith,"
and "Casey at the Bat," but he keeps
abreast the times, and is happiest
when rendering something modern,
or when giving an imitation of Foun
tain Square in the midst of the Sun
When in humor the professor gath
ers around him a select group of di
vinity students and girls from the
fem. sem., draws upon his wonderful
store of elocution and ventriloquism
and reproduces with startling realis
tic effects all the sounds that are
heard in the popular resorts of Davis
street of a summer evening.
nemay hear distinctly on such
onccasion the gurgle in the drug
e cellar, the giggle of the golt
gr,and the merry laughter of the
co-ed, as she orders pineapple mash
or nigger squirt. And aron, comes
the husky voice of the Evanston po
litician as he calls for a dash of sar
The popping of apollinaris corks,
the sizzing of the seltzer, the ringing
of the cash register gong, the waying
of the crowd as the apothecary opens
a fresh keg of root beer, the excited
Evanston alderman who insists upon
a little peppermint to put an edge on
his wild cherry bark; the commotion
-of the joyous, careless, heedless
throng as it surges in and out of the
establishment during the hours that
Evanston socie V is in its most friv
olous mnood-al rhese things one can
hear, and many of them in fancy one
can see, as Prof. Cutmnock plays upon
Now,. if the p)rofessor WCr.( only1
that he can axcel in a tk!d that i
at his either by inheritance or right
of p)re-emption. He is pursuing the
unattainahle when he aims to be
known as a connoisseur of woman's
He tells the fifty girls in his elocu
tion class that black eyes are the most
popular with men, thereby making
forty-five girls in his class whose
eyes are nqt black angry enough to
mob him. The professor fails to un
derstand that when a man praises
woman's eyes he should praise the
eyes of only one woman at a time,
and then only the eyes of the woman
he happens to be talking to.
There are all sorts of eyes in
Evanston. and, of course, a fair rep
resentation of all sorts in Prof.
Cumnock's class. Beside the coal
black eye. which is in the minority,
there is the soft brown eye, the cold
gray eye, the eye that reflects the
azure of the sky, the eye that has in
its limpid depths the blue tints of
Lake Michigan, the whitish, watery
eye, the pink eye, the roguish eye,
the penetrating eye, and the eye that
looks out for number one.
It would be a sad thing if an ill
considered remark should lead to a
coldness between Prof. Cumnock and
those with whom he has ever been so
justly popular. It is still possible for
him to make a retraction. But if he
persists in declaring that the black
eye is the only eye that melts the
heart, the eyes of all other beautiful
hues on the north shore will refuse to
fill with mosture the next time he
renders "The Death of Little Nell,
by the late Charles Dickens.
The Lousiana Purchase Today.
When the Lousiana Purchase. the
one hundredth anniversary of which
the St. Louis fair commemorates, was
made, there were people who believ
ed that fifteen million dollars was
too much to pay for a patch of wil
derness west of the Mississippi. To
day the income of one year from ag
riculture alone in this vast tract
would repay this purchase-price much
more than a hundred times over.
Even now this emp're has vast re
sources untouched. Only a snal'
portion of the land is under cultiva
tion. and the mineral resources are
just coming to light. Scarcely a
decade has passed since Cripple Creek
wvas discovered. and it is now pouring
forth millions of wealth annually.
Within the past few months there
have been oil deposits unbottled in
south-eastern Kansas which bid fair
to rival the great oil fields of Penn
sylvania. while the same locality has
enough natural gas to light the na
tion. The income from its farnva
and ranches last year was $1,876.
184.431. The manufactures of this
region last year amounted to $i,oo6,
332,6I1, enough to buy the province
of Lousiana sixty-sevent times over
The mines of Colorado and Montana
and the other states with mineral
wealth last year turned out products
to the value of $239,909,128. The total
product of the four states of Missouri,
Kansas. Iowa. and Minnesota
amountedi to more than two billion
dollars last year. divided as follows:
Missouri .. .......$761,087,530
Kansas .. .......462,576,810
Iowa .... ........447,995.560
Minnesota ...... ....389,188,930
Total. .. .. ....$2,06o,848,830
The prairies of Kansas and the
fields of Minnesota are today, the
world's greatest granaries, the former
of winter wheat, the latter of spring
wheat. These two states furnish
one-fourth of the bread produced in
the entire country. From the farms
of Missouri, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska,
Minnesota and the Dakotas come mil
lions of cattle and swine, and from
the f'anches of Montana and Wyo
ming countless numbers of sheep.
No other like territory on the face of
the globe produces such an abun
dance of food products.
A Loss To Winthrop.
