tcuu of Information at tbe Broad street
station of the Pennsylvania railroad to-day
a kpecUi officer seized a refined-lookiuif old
tjiMitlonian, wearing glasses and baring a
gray beard. Tbe old man appeared sur
prised and frightened, and tbe spectators
ihrm'ht it wo a friendly tuasel until tbe el
derly gent shrieked as he clung to the rail
ing, "(iood people, don't let hltn lake me.
He watit-i lo lake me toan asylum. 1 appeal
to you. I have committed no crime,"
The old eetitleman exerted ail his strength
to free bimseif, but be was carried into the
mioking-c.tr. Trie officer then ald:
"Sow, be quiet, old man. You are all
right." Standing up and addressing the
ar full of people, tbe old man said:
'Gentlemen, let me state my case to you.
1 an an old man and tail afternoon my son
usaulted me on one of your streets. I own
considerable property and my son bad charge
it it. He sold some of it without my con

the property, which be refused. Now be
is having me put away. My only crime is
that I am old. Is there not some lawyer

ion't some of you demand to see tbis of

aid be was taking the prisoner to Trenton,
itirther.information he refused to give.
The old gentleman again stood up and
iskcd for a cbaritible lawyer to dcfentl him

unjustly Into an asylum. "Herein broad

man like me to be carried oil before your

the last words his voice trembled. He
then looked pleadingly to each of the faces
:if the passengers, who, utterly powerless
M aid nun, turned to each other and re
marked, tbit man is not crazy. At this
juncture the train moved out of tbe
lepot, and tbe old man. with a sigb, as if
lu p ft of ell hope, sank back into bis seat.

Nkw York. Oct. 27. A court-room
rehearsal of Oscar Wilde's "Vera" was
uiven yesterday before Judge Fort in New
ark. The star was Mary Prescott, and nhe
was supported by her husband. Wm. Per
zel. Fred Loto brought suit to recover
H10 alleged to be due him for three weeks'
services as a member of Miss Prescott's
company. He presented tbe contract, in
which it was stated that tbe manage
ment reserved the right to discbarge
for incompetency with one week's
notice. Loto said be becan playing Au
gust 1, and) continued for one week.
He received do notice of tbe disbandment
of tbe company until tbe 27th, when he ap
peared for rehearsal. He was then offered
what was due on bis salary for that week
with the promise of another week's salary
the following Monday if tbe members of tbe
company would cancel their contracts. The
following Mondiy'Mary Prescott's husbahd,
who had made tbe promise, failed to ap
t e:ir Loto averred that he had 'been en
gaged for second comedy, bot was cast for
the Colonel, who bad to take charse of a
company of grenadiers, and he was objected
to on account of his fatness. Tbe defense
rested on the clause of the contract in re
ference to incompetency. Miss Prescott
swept bebind tbe bar and sank into .(be
witness-box at the left center.
"I saw be was not Gt to play tbeColone I
at tbe first rehearsal, and cast bim for two
small parts," she began, in sad and pitiful
totie. she then deposed that Loto had re
fused to act.at rehtarsals aud that sbe dis
charged bim. On Monday nieht she told
him that his make-up was bad and be
would not suit. On Tuesday be was so
impcrt'nent that she told the stage manager
lo discharge bim. "I discharged h:m sole
ly for impertinence. ' ' she replied to a ques
tion, and she added in reply lo other
queries: "There arc no dramatic news
papers of any standing in New York.
Criticisms are very pleasant to those who ate
spoken of invorably. " The epilogue wai
spoken by Jurice Fort, who gave a clear
rendering of his lines, awarding HO and
costs to Loto.

Philadelphia, Oct. 27. Many tears
were shed over one small child In Judgo
Allison's court-room to-day. "I waul my
child! 1 want bim! I want him, because
be is mine!" cried Mrs. Bessie Feastcr,
during a bearing on a proceeding to obtain
possession of a four-year-old son, who had
been taken away by ber busband, Tbe
little one rested upon its father's knee and
gazed wistfully up Into the tear-wet
eyes of its mother. Mrs. Feastcr
testified that tbe and ber husband
bad separated five months ago, and he bad
taken her child to the borne ot bis married
lister. Mrs. Feasler produced several
neighhors who testified that, In tbeir
ludgiiient, sbe was fit to have charge of the
child. The Judge thought it best to give a
child of so tender an age in tbe custody of
HIE KSTRA.VGED COLTLK
Itood side by side before tbe bar. The
child was given into Its mother's
arms. The little one wound one
plump arm around the neck of its mother,
and leaned over and rested the
other upon the sbou'der of its downcast
"1 bave a word to sav to you," said the
Judge. "When you meet do not keep up
your enmity. Let the past be as if It never
exisu-il. in i ' Mt each other kindly. It may
be that coining lugother often before your
child you will not be so keenly alive to each
other's faults, and you will more clearly see
each the other's good qualities. Then, per
haps, in a little time you will be living to
gether again, as I hope it may be your
pleasure, und I am sure it is your duty 'o
do," As they turned from the bur the
tears were running down their faces. The
husband kissed the child's upturned face.
The little one clung to bis coat, hut he put
it away gently, and as he shook its fat little
hand, he s.iid "good bye, good bye now."
'Why good bye," said the sohhicg
mother. "You may come to see the child
anv time Henry; any lime at all." The
mother, with the. little one in her arms.
passed out with halt a dozen of ber friends.
They were all weeping because they had
won the child. The disconsolate father and
his sister and tbeir friends followed thetn.
They were all weeping because they hail
lost the little one. The dozen or more
mothers waiting in the court room to tell
their own tales of woe were weeping, too,
as If Mrs. Fcaster's pretty little biby be
longed to each of them.
