Lincoln J. Carter has made arrangements to take his latest realis

sorts. Miss Edith Ellis of N. Y. city has been engaged as the leading
lady of the company.
Alva W. Heywood will go out again this season in "Edeewood
Folks," Sol Smith Russel's old success. He will also appear in a
i.ew comedy which is now being written for him. The south and
southwest will be his territory.

"The Texan," a drama of American western life life written by an
Englishman who probably never saw Texas, has failed completely in

Mr. Irving, it is said, will not play Napoleon in the English ver
sion of "Mme. Sans-Gene," which ho has bought for the chances it
affords Miss Terry. He has long wished to play the character, and
twice commissions have practioally beeu placed with leading dra
matists. But Napoleon's abandonment of Josephine and ultimate
downfall raise serious barriers in the way of a dominating study of
this fascinating man. and in both cases a satisfactory drama proved
impossible. In "Sans-Gene," of course, Napoleon is no more than
the slightest of sketches, and if Mr. Irving appears in the drama at
all it will be as Marshall Lefebvre, Mr. Murray Carson having been
already engaged for the Emperor.

Mr. Bon Davies, the Welsh tenor, who was heard here last season
has been interviewed by a representative of tho "London Sketch" at,
his homo in Hampstead. When askod what ho thought of America,
"as a man and as a musician," Mr. Davies replied, according to the
Sketch, as folio wo: "From every point of view I am enchanted with
America and things American. Speaking as a man I cannot praise
their kindness and hospitality too highly. From tho musical point
ef view I must confess that tho American people are considerably in
advance of us. Possibly this is owing to the Gorman element in the
Statesbut as far as I could see my audiences wore drawn from every
class and nationality. I sang all over the states New York, Wash
ington, Springfield, in Boston, in Indianapolis, in Providenco acd
Cincinnati, also in Canada, and everywhere I found that the people
preferred the best music and thoroughly understood and appreciated
what they wished to hear. Perhaps you will be surprised to hear
that the ballad concert, in our sense, is unknown I mean, of course,
those English coucerts which are mainly instrumental in making
known modern drawing room songs for of old English, Scotch and
Irish ballads there is a great demand in America. But the trans
lantic mufeical public has trained itself to prefer tho best works to
any others. My most popular songs wero 'Waft Her, Angels,' and
selections from 'Lohengrin,' and the Meistersinger.
"You must bo careful about your diet, said tho physician. "Don't
take any ice water."
"No ice water," echoed tho invalid.
"Not a drop. And don't take any beverage but water." -

"And don't take any exercise that you can help."
"But I'll get fat in two weeks!"
"It makes no difference. And don't take any"
"Hold on, doctor. I'll go back to my first principles for summer

It is hard to get ahead of an Atchison girl. It is said of a girl
who never has any beau that in the evening she lights piecesof punk
and fastens them to tho porch. Any one driving past concludes that
she is surrounded by young men smoking cigars.
THE TRAMP'S JOLLY.
The tramp, whom tho lady of the house had admitted to the
kitchen table, and was giving a dinner of her own cooking, was
such a pleasant looking fellow that she became quite interested
in him. After busying about a while she ventured into conversa
tion. "You have not always been in this business, have you?" she
"No madam," he replied briefly.
"Ah, I thought so. You have Been better dayB then?"
He looked at the fine piece of pie and big glass of cold milk
she set down on the table for him to finish on, and laid down his
knife and fork.
"If you mean by better days, madam," he said, "that I have not
always been a tramp, I will reply yes; but if you mean by days
that I have ever had pleasanter surroundings than the present or
that I have surrounded pleasanter things," and he blushed, "I
will say emphatically that I have not." and-the good woman was
so pleased that she almost wanted to take him as a permanent
