I visited George Eliot's gravo at High

many touching tokens of affection which I
saw there. It waa a chill and cheerless
autumn afternoon, but a number of beauti

cold gray granite pillar which tells who
rests beneath. There is no gravo in the

to Hawthorne unhesitatingly the foremost

"The essay read by Chas. D. Warner be

The theme is 'The American Newspaper.'
'It is a subject in which everybody is inter
ested, and about which it is not polite tt
say that anybody is not well informed; for
although there are scattered through the
land many persons, I am sorry to say, un
able to pay for a newspaper, I hava ncvor
yet heard of anybody unable to edit one.'
The closing sentence of the essay is worthy
of remark: 'With all its fault I believe
the moral tone of the American newspaper
is higher, aa a rule, than that of the com
munity in which it is published.' The late
Dr. Holland expressed a somewhat similar
MakrTwain'b latest literary essay is a
"romance" entitled "The Prince and the
Paupur," and we are informed that it is "a
tale for young people of all ages." This
addendum has much of the Twain flavor
about it, and we find on turning over the
leaves of the book there is indeed much
that will amuso if not instruct "young peo
ple of all ages" not merely the youth be
ginning to understand and gratify his in
nate longings for knowledge, and to devel
ope his imaginative faculties, but for the
"old boys" and elderly girls, the fathers
and mothers of the aforesaid youth. The
work marks decidedly a new departuro on
tho part of the humorist. It is indescriba
ble in the limits of a review. A brief sy.
nopsis of its plot may help to an under
standing of the outline of the story, but the
book itiolf alone supplies the filling in that
forms a remarkable fabric. The plan of
the tale is thus described :
"It deals with the period of history when
Henry VIII. was king of England, and by
a series of accidents the son of the king and
a stout boy whom he miraculously resem
bles change placos. The young prince,
who afterward becomes Edward VII., is
thrust out of a palace gate, and falling into
the hands of tho pauper's family, is accept
ed as their own, while the pauper begins
lifo as tho king's son amidst the obsequious
compliances of the courtiers among whom
his freakish exchange of, clothes with the
real prince had left him. Edward Tudor
leads from that time on the life of a beaten
and hunted beggar and tramp, and Tom
Canty sees the other side of the ray of life
wnicnhe once fancied so joyous, till thev
at last, by anotbc series tf accidents, meet
race to face on the print's coronation day.
A charming and useful fact of the conceit
is that each boy in his place loudly Droteats
against the mistake that has been made:
Tom declares that he is a pauper, the son
of a beggar and a thief; Edwards maintains
that he is the prince of Walts. Both arc
thought mad; the mock prince is gradually
silenced in his assertions by the king's
command, which forbids him to utter them
or his courtiers to notice; but the real prince
proclaims his right to the very end, in all
presences and circumstances."
Eventually, of course, the wrong is right
ed, but not before both youths past through
an experience which may, without fear of
contradiction, be pronounced unprecedent
ed. A public familiar with Twain's wild
fancy may conceive what play he gives it in
working up astounding "situations" as lh
tale progress. There is a deep vein of
pnthoM, also, in die account of tho priuce's
unhappy lot. The author tins, advantage
ously to himself, wo think, changed his
publishers. "The prince and the Pauper"

Tho following notices of the Fay Tem
pleton company, of the popular comic opera
"Tho Mascotte," in which . that company
will appear at our new opera house on the
15th instant, are taken from papers of a
late dato to which the notices are respect
Tho opening opera was well chosen, Au
dran's "Mascotte," and the annonncment of
a new and charming soubrette Fay Tern
ploton in the title role, attracted a good
audience. Fay Templeton is a very bright
and handsome young girl, with good sou
brette qualities in acting and a contralto
voice, rich in musical elements. Her pres
ence is all in hor favor from the first, and
her voice gains and wins with acquaintance.
Sho is occasionally a reminder of some of
the little actresses, for instance of Lotta, and
particularly Anna Pixley, whom she resem
bles somewhat in personal appearance. But
in her own porson sho captured tho audi
ence on her first night, and will win friends
aa she goes. She plays and sings Bcttina,
the Mascotte, in good style, and with well
earned applause. The other features are
Seth M. Crane, Alice Vane, Wm. M. Fuller
and John Templeton, who ought to be hap
py in having a Mascotte for a daughter.
The company altogether gives a genuine
entertainment. "Olivette" and "Good
Luck," "Nine Musses" and "Puck" are in
the Templeton repertoire. St. Louis Re
publican. The Fay Templeton opera company made
a decided hit in the "Mascotte" yesterday
evening before a splendid audience. The
organization is a strong one throughout,
and the leading parts of the opera could
hardly bo intrusted to more efficient artists.
Misa templeton 's Bettina, the Mascotte,
was most enjoyable, her singing and acting
interpreting capitally both the melody of
the composer and tho vivacious humor of
the libretist. Hor voice is young and fresh
(the lady, it may be mentioned, is still in
her teeosl and of good compass, and her ap
preciation of the delicate fun which per
vades the piece isevidrnced in a captivating
succession of winsome coquetries and by
plays. The opposite part, that of Tippo,
who loves and wins the Mascotte, was taken
by Mr. Seth M. Crane, whose work was
hardly less worthy of praisn than that of tho
prima donna. Together they made a very
pleasant pair to watch and listen to, and in
tho famous Gobble song they captured
their audience and recoivod a rapturous re
call. St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
