"John "Bull's Other Islan2
as Wordy as a Patent
From Our New Tork Dramatic Corre
Arnold Daly bas come a itopixt at
the Garrick theater with George Ber
nanl Shaw's play, "John Bull's Other
Island." As full of words as a United
States patent otliee report and as volJ
of Interest as a volume of census sta
tlstles, the drama has little or nothing
to commend it to the public.
Sometimes when an author makes a
hit with a powerful novel another book
appears shortly afterward bearing hii
name. Of course every one buys the
volume advertised as written "by the
author of Tbe Whirling Worlds." Only
too often the second book is wearisome
and pointless. The truth of the matter
usually Li that the second book had
been written first and refused by the
publishers. Consequently it was hid
den away in thejittle old trunk iu the
cobwebby attic until the success of
"The Whirling Worlds" made the au
thor's name famous. Then a ready
market was obtainable for the one
time failure. It is possible aye. prob
ablethat the latest Shaw play had a
career of this sort.

do for money," once spoke a pessi

"John Bull's Other Island" is nothing
but a protracted discussion of the Irish
political question. Mr. Shaw sets up an
argument In favor of the Irish side and
straightway bowls It over with a stron
ger argument in favor of the English
aspect. So the play is not sincere, an
other defect in a drama of this descrip
tion. Occasionally a bright line creeps into
the text, but its ntful gleam soon dies

First ascertain clearly whether it
will be agreeable to ILe persons whom
you desire to present to one another
tlus to be Introduced. It has happened
that two persons who were at enmity
aixl did not sjeak to each other have
leeu Introduced by. blundering ac
quaintances heedless of the aliove rule.
If you wish to introduce a man to a
woman, always ask the woman's per
mission. If at a social gathering you wish to
introduce a young man to a young
woman and her mother Is there with
her, ask first the mother's permission
to present the gentleman. If an Indi
vidual Is Introduced to a lady or to a
very old gentleman who Is seated, it is
not necessary for the lady or the very
old gwitleman to rise In acknowledging
the presentation, but. really, it liks
more gracious and graceful to do so.
Form of Introduction.
Having made sure the introduction
will be mutually agreeable, observe in
fallibly this rule as to its form: Always
present the man to the woman, the
younger to the elder, the Inferior to the
superior. If you wish to make Miss
Blowser and Mr. Skecsicks acquaint!,

Introducing a man to a mother and
daughter, present him to the mother
first, then to the daughter. This is a
point of respect and courtesy. If you
have corralled any great personage like
a literary lion or a congressman, you
can say :
"Mr. Congressman, this is my friend
and neighbor, Mrs. Squizky," If you
know the great personage well, or you
may say simply, "Mr. Congressman,
The one exception to the rule that
the man should be Introduced to the

It is not generally known, but is nev

her youth was seized with a desire to
become a nun. She entered Mme. Fres

once became notable for her religious
fervor. In 1855 she went to the Grand
champs convent at Versailles, and there
in 1857 she announced ber intention of
taking the veil. Her success in the per
formance of a Biblical play enacted In
the convent for the entertainment of a
visiting archbishop turned her thoughts
to dramatic work.
Two years later she was so moved by
seeing two dramas, "Brittanlcus" and
"Amphitryon, at the Theatre Francois
that brain fever ensued. Immediately
upon her recovery Mme. Bernhardt re
nounced her intention of becoming a
nun, and In I860 she entered the Con

distinguished man, old enough to be
his grandfather, and the youth shoved
out his paw, grabbed the hand of the
older man, pumped at it energetically

Now. one really felt bad for that
"brash" youth. The distinguished old
