Mr. Geo. W. Chellet has been forced,
since he has gone to housekeeping, to live
the life of the Arab, who is proverbially a
rover. Mr. Chellet has been driven from
honse to house not less than four times
within the last year and always because
the house he was occupying had been sold,
or the owner desired to occupy it. Recently
he moved into Mr. Russell's house, next to
Mr. R. II. Cunningham, but this was sold
to Mr. Peter Haup since then, who intends
to remove it and therefore Mr. Chellet
must vacate it. He has rented one of the

Lutheran church on Thirteenth street, has
concluded to take a pleasure trip to Europe
of about tour months duration. He has
nearly completed all arrangements and

Havana, where his parents reside. During
his absence Rev. J. ilossteld will occupy
the pulpit at the usual time and conduct
the sundy school. There will,
however, be no English ser
vices during Mr. Knappe's absence.
When he returns, it is his intention to pro
cure a teacher, who is master of both the
German and and English language aud tx
start a school where these branches of study
will be principally taught. Owing to the
short time left Rev. Knappe in which to
make every necessary preparation for his
departure, he will not have lime to person
ally bid all his friends good-bye.
"THE NEW MARY ANDERSON.'.
Less than two years ago a beautiful
young lady with a wealth of golden hair,
bright blue eyes and clad in snowy white
ness, stood up among a class to receive her
diploma as a graduate of a school in tho
state of Kentucky. Unlike most young
ladies of her age, her first thoughts upon
returning to the parental mansion was how
to employ her time. She was' offered, a
position as teacher of elocution in the pub
lic schools, but this did not suit her. Upon
reflection, she selected several plays, made
a study of them and concluded to enter the
atrical life. Meeting Mrs. Waller in New
York, she gave several readings, which
were satisfactory to the great elocutionist.
Returning to her home she at once began
making preparations for the stage, and less
than two months ago she made a most suc
cessful debut at her home in Louisville,
Ky. This young lady was Selena Fetter,
who appeared at English's Opera-house
last night iu Sheridan Knowles' play, "The
She has a fine voice, fine figure, eyes that
resemble those of Mary Anderson, and with
proper training will overreach the reputa
tion of the "Lovely Mary." She reads her
Hues well, and her stage presenco is good
for one so young in the profession. She
demonstrates eomethiug besides a short
acquaintances with stage manners brain
and cultivation. She gave an admirable per
formance, the result of study, not alono of
mere routine, but of the character. In the
first act she infuses into her maiden love a
becoming modesty, as well as tho deepest
aud tenderest passion. She does not believe
her lover false, and rather than accept a
man she does not love sho will drink the
doath draught. The passion and defiance
of tho actress in this strong sceue was tho
quiet and natural determination of a wo
man driven to desperation. In tho second
act, when sho is char" 3 with iiifldolity,
slie passes perfectly turough thoraried
shades of emotion from indignant Bcorn to
crushed and injured innocenco. In tho last
act, when tho climax is reached, and sho
confronts her accusers in the presenco of
her husband sho reached the height of her
power. Evansvillo Tost.
