usual excellence including Essie Tit
tell, Thomas Hums, Annie Wood.
Km ma Johnson, and W. Coleman,
When produced in this city last year
it met with great success. The
comedy is an adaptation of an anius.
ing trifle that enjoyed much favor in
l'aris recently. In eliminating much
of the racy wit that made the plot
palatable to French taste. Mr. Gillette
has added considerable humor of a
more agreeable nature. What the
ncenes lack in the riskiness of the
original are atoned for by the gro
tesque for which Mr. Gillette's pen in
celebrated. The new comedy made
an instantaneous hit in New York and
enjoyed the most profitable run ever
known in the history of Proctor's
Twenty-third street' theatre. New
York. There is not a dull moment
in the play. Its characters are na
tural, its situations are ludircrou
and its dialogue sparkling. The per
formance is a sparkling, fizzing tri
umph from end to end. It is a tri
umph of laughter.

The stato dining-room at Windsor
castle is a tine apartment in the prince
of Wales' tower." It was redecorated
shortly before the jubilee in ;old and
white after a very tasteful design
chosen by Princess Beatrice. The
furniture is of Gothic pattern and said
to have been designed by Welby Pu
gin. The doors are ornamented with
exquisite .Chippendale work, says an
In the center of the north window,
which looks out on the north terrace,
the home park and Eton college, is
displayed a massive gold jmnch-lxwl,

is a very fine piece of work, is made

This room was destroyed by lire ia
1S3 and again by water in 1891. It
is only used on grand occasions when
the queen's party is over sixteen.
When it "Is under that number the
queen prefers to dine in the oak room.
The three drawing-rooms are con
nected with the dining-room, with the
corridor and with each other by fold
ing doors and all the doors are deco
rated with the same unique Chippen
dale work.. The three drawing-rooms
face the east and look down on the
splendid east terrace anil gardens over
the broad expanse of the home park
forward Datchet, Obi Windsor.
The crimson drawing-room is next
to the dining-room. It is decorated
and upholstered in crimson-satin bro
cade, which, together' with the rich
ness of the embellishments and the
wealth of gildiujr with which it is
adorned, gives this room a very gorg
Superb carvings, the finest ormolu
work and the must exquisitely inlaid
cabinets line the walls and conspicu
ously placed in one of the windows is
a large malachite vase, which, like the
one in the grand reception-room, was
given to the queen by the Czar Nicho
las of Russia.
The crimson drawing-room opens
into (he green, similarly decorated and
furnished in richest satin brocade, but
the prevailing color is green.
The principal feature of this room is
the magnificent collection of Sevres
china, which is said to be the finest in
the world. This is another product of
the extravagant tastes of George IV.
and the sight of the innumerable love
ly pieces, delicately molded and col
ored, is enough to make a collector
mad with envy.
The white drawing-room is furnished
in crimson and gold d.imask. with
white walls decorated in an esseiawally
French style. The walls of this room
are hung with numerous portraits of
the royal family, while a number of
exquisitely worked cabinets and a
table beautifully inlaid with Floren
tine mosaic in the form of flowers and
fruit are among the principal orna
ments. It is in the whito drawing-room that
the queen holds private investitures of
the knightly orders, when a few minis
ter are summoned from town in or
der to form a council for the occasion.
Luncheon is held first iu the dining-room.
"There's lots of horses that git pret
ty lame tryiu' ter keep up with the
profession, " said Uncle Ezra to the
boys as they sat before the tire. "An1
it don't pay ter git too darin' an' sassv
with yer jokin'." There was no one
to gainsay this remark, says the
Youth's Companion, and the old man
"Now, there was Aaron Jaques. He

Voor ole cripple, Miss Jones, that lives
tip in the woods. She ain't an un
common neat pusson. an' if the truth
be sjsoke her cheese ain't invitin' ter
look at nor yet ter taste.
"Well, Aaron, he went over there one
day and thought he'd git a piece ter
take ter school and fool the girls with.
He went up and made a tolerable fine
call tiptoed round like a dancin'
master. Jist before he come away he
says mighty perlite:
"Miss Jones, do give me a piece of
your nice cheese. I've jist been han
kerin' for it,' ses he.
"Well, she went into a kind o1 dark
looking closet ender the stairs an1
come out with a piece 'bout's big as a
bowl, an' she looked at Aaron kind o'
euros an' ses smilin' a little: 'You've
ben hankerin,1 hev ye.'"
"It was pretty moldy and black
lookin.' and Aaron chuckled to him
self, a'thinkin' what a fine time he'd
hev with that cheese, when the old
lady ses, a-givin' him a . knife, ses
"'There, yer can cease hankerin,' an'
set right down here an' eat it, and
don't carry it away an' make fun of it,
same's yer brother Amos did,' an' she
jest stood over him while ho minced
the whole of it down. Boys, don't be
too brash with your foolin'."

The Loudon Graphic has a portrait
and sketch of Potara, a Maori canni
bal, who is S5 years old and still has a
good set of natural teeth. He has not
eaten a white nym since 1816. He
peaks well of white folks, but for a
steady diet prefers a Maori, as the
whiles or "Pakehas" have "a salty and
biller flavor. " ,
