nightly prove a feature of the attrac

who will play John Burkett Ryder, the
richest man in the world, in Henry B.
Harris' production of Charles Klein's
great American play, ."The Lion and
the Mouse," at the Illinois theater to
morrow, is an actor of excellent abil
ity who has been before the public
very prominently for a number of
years. Mr. Everton's first notable suc
cesses were scored as leading man
with Mme. Jauauschek, with whom he
appeared for several seasons, and in
the same capacity with Margaret
Mather when that talented woman
produced Cymbeline. Mr. Everton
played Iachinio, and shared honors
with the star. Of recent years he has
supported Alice Fisher, playing the
East Indian lover in "The School for
Husbands," and two years ago was
the principal support of Edna Wallace
Hopper in "A Country Mouse" and
"Captain January." In the last named
play he portrayed the old sea captain
and earned the praise of the critics
for his impersonation of a very diffi
cult character. In organizing the com
pany that will present "The Lion and
the Mouse" in this city Henry B. Har
ris selected Mr. Everton for the part
of "Ready Money" Ryder after pass
ing on the merits of several score of
applicants. Mr. Everton has a per
sonality that capitally fits him for part
of the money king, a character that is
generally supposed to 1 present a ver
well known American.

filled and the audiences were given
excellent interpretations of the beau
tif ul play. The various roles were ?n
good hands and the company is capa
ble and well balanced. Bernard Daly
in the stellar role of Dan O'Hara, is a
worthy successor to Joseph Murphy
He is a good actor with an attractive
personality. It is his singing which
arouses the audience to the greatest
enthusiasm. He has a phenomenal
tenor voice of exceptional range and
lis style is very pleasing. His rendi
tion of Killarney was particularly good
and he had to respond to hearty en
cotes. The play is excellently staged,
the doves carrying messages and the
horses in the blacksmith shop giving
a most realistic touch."

Queer, Conjuring Feats of the Seven
Conjurers In ancient times were not
very respectable members of society.
When successful they enjoyed the rep
utation of having sold their souls to the
evil one, and when of inferior ability
they gained notoriety by being either
drowned or burned. The mediaeval
magicians as well as the Egyptian
magi and the Chaldean sages were only
a strange mixture of chemist, conjurer
and charlatan, and as these gentlemen
were in the habit of using their sup
posed occult powers to their own ad
vantage they were naturally unpopu
lar. Hie feats of jugglery performed
by these craftsmen were intended for
the mystification and not the amuse
ment of the public, and for centuries
conjuring had to it only a black side.
The amateur conjurer of today Is not
always a popular individual, save with
children and the unsophisticated yokels
To the general public he Is merely a
bore of greater or less magnitude,
whose performance is so obvious as to
deceive no one. It is hard to realize
that this person is no mere mushroom
growth of modern society, but iu point
of fact his role is one of a respectable
antiquity, for he is to be found tread
ing close upon the heels of the magi
cians and in the days when witchcraft
was still rampant This is significant
of his reputation even in those early
times, for had any one taken his tricks
seriously he would doubtless have been
run to earth and done to death as a
In the middle of the seventeenth
century, in the earliest years of the
restoration, a number of tricks were
published in one of those facetious
books which seem to have occupied
the press to a great extent at this time.
but which owing to their popularity
have for the most part perished. The
chief recommendation of the greater
nusiler of these tricks is that no ap
paratus beyond the utensils of every
day life is necessary: also it is sug
gested to the performer that he can
make some smajj profit out of his en
tertalnmeut by prevailing on his audi
ence to bet with him on the result of
"To set a horse's or an asse's head
upon a mau s bead and shoulders
seems Impossible out of the land of
Faery, but we are informed that by
boiling the head cut off a living
animal "the flesh ' boyl'd may runne
into oyle," and then by mingling the
hair beaten into powder with this
oil and anointing the heads of the
standers-by "they shall seem to hav
horses' or asses' heads" a costly ex
periment and fearsome If successful.
But, besides this, one can "make peo
ple seem headleBse," and this without
bloodshed and by the following simple
reci: "Break arsenick very fine and
boyle It with Bulphur In n cover'd pot
and kindle it with a new candle, and
the standers-by will seem to be head
lesse." Doubtless a strong Imagina
tion is necessary for success.
Some of the tricks are such as would
nowadays cause the performer to be
disliked, to put It mildly, Tor instance,
"have a nut filled with Ink: and give
this unto another and bid him- crack It
and see what he can find In that,"
which being done "will cause much
"To keep a Tapster from frothing his
pots" must have been an amusement
to the wags of the period, and for this
"provide in readinesse the skin of a red
Herlng, and when the Tapster Is ab
sent do but rub a little on the inside
of his pots, and he will not be able to
froth them, do what he can. In a
good while after."
"To counterfeit a diamond with a
white saphir" is a most useful accom
plishment, but the fraud is likely in
these days to be discovered and is
more a chemical experiment than a
Several tricks are recommended
which have-animals as their subject
and are for the most part brutal to
our modern ideas. Perhaps the least
objectionable is "to seem to kill a
Horse and cure him again," which
may be thus accomplished:
"Take, the seed of henbane and give
it the Horse in his Provender, and it
will cast . him into such a deep sleep
that he will seem dead. If you will
recover him again, rub his Nostril.-
with Vinegar, and he will seem to be
revived." Tne "seem to be revived
Bounds rather ominous, and it is to be
noted that the correct quantity of hen
bane Is not mentioned, so that it might
be best , to make this experiment on
some one else's horse.
. "To make a shoal of Goslings draw
a Timber logge" sounds interesting.
but unfortunately the directions are
vague. "To make a shoal of Goslings
or a Gaggle of Geese to seem to draw
a Timber logge is done by the verle
means that is us'd when a Cat draws
a fool through a Pond, but handled
somewhat further off from the Be
