Aoent ibe appearance ef this clever
comedian at Harpet 'a theatre this evening,
we clip the following from an exchange:
Miss Isadora Rush, the handsome
blonde who pin? s Bessie Bunting, Tom's
wife, in Roland Rsed's irresistibly funny
comedy, ' Lend Me Your Wife," has been
only two years on the stage. If it were
not for her charming candor no one
would ever kDOW that she had not bet-n
identified wi'h the histrionic art from
childhood. To the ladies of the audi
ence last evening she gave a delightful
treat, apart from the laughter
provoking company, in the
tastefully elaborate and rich
costumes in which she drefsed .he part.
Miss Rush not only believes in repre
senting the character properlo with her
personality, the also insists, as does Mr.
Reed, upon looking the pnrt in every re
epsctto which a lioely equipped ward
robe will contribute. The dress worn in
the last act was a r'ream an imported
costume modeled afttr an o'.d-f ishion
plate. It is princess, full eveuing de -olletto
with demitrnin made from damat-k
rose and serpent green brocade sst'n.
garnished with white ostrich
irirnmioe and real duchess
lace. Pink satin shots are
worn wiih it. A handsom? and becom
ing gown worn in the recond act by
Miss Rush is a light gray crepe de chene
enibellithcd wiin gold bullion and fas
tened clcse to the throat.
The frankly fascinating daughter of
Captain Tarbox appears to particular ad
vantage in a simple girlish cream and
navy blue flannel Bailor suit The cur
tain goes down for the last time while
she is given her share of 76 41. which
she receives in a pretty pea green crepe
de ehene gown.

England Using Le Coffee.
Notwithstanding the reduction of the
duty on coffee, and the fact that the best
coffee is sold in Great Britain cheaper than
anywhere in Europe, it is steadily falling,
we read, in consumption. There are many
theories put forward to explain this. One
is that coffee ia more adulterated here than
on the Continent. That is certainly not
the case. It is easier to get puie coffee
here than in France, Austria, Italy or Ger
many. The next and most common expla
nation is tuat we don't know bow to make
good coffee; here. But that again is a fal
lacy and ite terms a misstatement. We
all know how to make good coffee, and
there is no one who cannot make it. Brit
