Janitor William Bannon of the
Bank strest school has a pain in his
side which was brought on by a fit
of laughing at the idea of the surface
water playing tag on the beautiful
lawn at the Washington school. Jani
tor Preston is not saying much, but he
is working like a beaver to repair the
damage done on his grounds by the

Business is booming in the vicin
ity of Washington avenue and Bank
street. The paving contractors have
commenced operations at these points
and work is also being pushed along
on Mrs Kellys proposed new block on
the corner of Bank street and Wash
ington avenue. The number of men
that are engaged on these jobs, the
piles of paving blocks, tiers of brick,
lumber and other material that can be
seen here give the place the appear
ance of considerable thrift, and when
the work is finished and the debris
cleared away, it will add much to the
looks of things in the neighborhood.
Chairman Haxty of the South
Brooklyn school district is having
trouble already and the amount of
mischief done about tho school build
ing during the past week or two does
not indicate that tho new officers are
going to have a very easy time for the
next year. The other evening the
chairman put new locks on the water
closets, which stand a little west of
the school building, and the next
morning when the janitor called there
he found that some one had broken
open the door aiul did other contempti
ble tricks about the place. There is no
one in that section to enforce the law
and on this account people are not
particular about what they do when
passing through that section. The res
idents are all right, but there is con
siderable travel along thsre and in or
der to preserve the public peace it is
believed that it would be good policy
on the part of the selectmen to appoint
a constable for that neighborhood.
Why don't the property owners come
together and make knjwn the condi
tion of affairs to the board of select
men and probably all this trouble
would bo put an end to by the appoint
ment of a special constable.

A ready memory is a valuable gift
for an actor to possess. Sydney S.
Toler, who has been a member of Corse
Payton's company for the past three
years, has a memory which has been
of service to him in a commercial way
more than once. He can write from
memory any of the plays in which he
has ever appeared, with every business
detail complete. He always knows the
other parts as well as his own after a
few rehearsals. He says he makes no
attempt to learn them, but they im
press themselves upon his mind and are
so fied. On one or two occasions,
when lines were to be furnished in a
hurry, he has dictated to two type
writers at once, from two different acts
of a play.
According to an item which has been
going the rounds of the newspapers,
the curse over the grave of Shakes
peare has been discovered to be identi
cal in idea with that which King Ash
manezer of the Sidonians caused to be
engraved on his intended sarcophagus,
which was moved from Sidon to Paris.
The inscription runs: "Let no one
open this resting place nor trouble me
in 'this resting place by disturbing the
couch of my slumbers. For all men
who should open the tomb of my rest
there shall be no rest with the de
parted; they shall not be buried in a
grave and there shall be to them
neither son nor seed; neither root be
low nor fruit above, nor honor among
the living under the sun."
The opera season at Oovent Garden,
has resulted, it is said in a handsome
profit to the syndicate. Mr Grau says
he will nave the DeReszkes and all the
other male singers next year and pos
sibly Tamagno. He expects also to
have Melba, Eames, Calve and Nor
dica. He will return, to New York in
October to consult with, the Metropoli
tan directors as to the New York sea
son of 1898. The- person wiho seems
destined to shine in the stellar posi
tion in the United States next season,
which Anna Held filed during the last,
ia Mile fcleo de Merode. This young
person has for some years graced a
comparatively humble sphere in the
grand opera of Paris, but has become
known to a wider circle than her the
atrical attainments might seem to w ar
rant because her name has been linked
conspicuously with that of King Leo
pold of the Belgians. Her second
claim to fame rests upon a fashion1 of
hair dressing whioh she has inaugu
rated. It is said, however, .. that her
stage presence is decidedly attractive
and interesting. Mile Merode is book
ed to make her appearance in America
on September 5 for a season of one
month in ballet. In the meantime
she is 'borne ca the rolls of the grand
opera of Paris, but has leave of ab
sence for her trip to America. The
salary which will be paid her for. the
month is officially stated at 45,000
francs. If this figure be correct the
engagement will prove as profitable
as the American tours' of most for
eign artists.
John T. Raymond and William J.
Florence are on record as having as
sisted Edward A. Sothern in several of
his practical jokes. Raymond and
Sothern were journeying together from
Glasgow to Birmingham, and having
agreed to appear to be strangers to
each other, they entered a first class
non smoking apartment, in which sat
two typical English gentlemen. "Do
you object to smoking?" asked Ray
mond of them. "Certainly not!" they
replied politely. Then the same ques
tion was put by Raymond to Sothern,
who answered angrily, VI do, sir I do
most assuredly. It is a piece of im
pertinence on your part to ask such a
question." "I beg your pardon," re
plied Raymond modestly. "I am only
an American and quite unused to the
customs of this country." "That's
easy enough to see, sir," said Sothern,
with apparent indignation. "You are
evidently an American or a fool! We
don't conduct ourselves in that way in
England." As if terrified half out of his
life, Raymond sank back into a corner
of the carriage and the two disgusted
Englishmen expressed themselves
freely and audibly concerning Soth
ern's seemingly offensive and over
bearing conduct. Gazing at them
calmly, Eothern quietly took from his
pocket a cigar and lighted it and puffed
away with great nonchalance and as
indiiferent to his surroundings as if
nothing had occurred. This was too
much for tho Britishers, and they
"went for him." At first they talked
at him, then they talked to him. They
tried to make him put his cigar out,
explain, apologize. They declared
they would call the guard, and threat
ened all kinds of things, but Sothern
sat imperturbable and silent as the
Sphinx, calmly smoking his cigar, and
filling the compartment with smoke.
In the course of this scene, the train
stopped at a station. Then Sothern
throwing a contemptuous look at the
Englishmen, and taking Raymond bv
the arm said, "Come, John, we'll
cnange carriages here. We'll leave
these ill-mannered fellows to them
selves." Florence assisted Sothern in
perpetrating the "sell" on Philip Lee,
the husband of Adelaide Neilson, in
order to convince Lee of his error in
doubting the existence of the uncivi
lized customs of the country of which
he had heard so much in England.
That England Has Consented to Con
fer About Behring Sea,
Washington, July 31. Administration
officials are much gratified at the an
nouncement that Great Britain has
formally consented to take part In an
International conference on the question
of pelagic sealing In Bering sea.
This action on the part of Great Brit
ain assures the holding of a conference
in Washington during the autumn
which will be attended by representa
tives of the United States, Great Brit
ain, Russia and Japan. The Japanese
government has not yet officially agreed
to take part In the conference, but the
officials of the BtaHe department are con
fident that Japan will participate, and
thus bring together every nation which
Is in any way interested In the seals of
Bering sea. The principal object of the
conference Is to arrive at a common
understanding as to the true condition
of the seal herd, and then. If possible, to
agree upon some plan which will insure
the preservation of the animals if it
should be found to be true that they
are being exterminated.
The officials of . the state and treasu
ry departments believe that the reports
from the agents in Bering sea this sum
mer will fully bear out Secretary Sher
man's contention that there Is a "de
pleted condition and prospective early
extinction of the herd." No reports have
yet been received from the seal islands,
and none Is expected for some time, but
all the reports from the revenue cutters
in Bering sea Indicate that one of two
things is true, either the seals are much
later than usual In migrating to the
sea or there are comparatively few seals
to migrate.
The action of the British government
In agreeing to enter the conference may
lead this government to revoke the In
structions to the treasury agents on the
seal islands to brand all seals foun
there and thus render their skins of lit.
tie or no value, but on account of the
time required to send orders to the Is
lands many of the seals will be branded
before the orders can be revoked.
Seizure of Dynamite.
New York, July 31. Inspectors from
the bureau of combustibles have seized
100 pounds of dynamite and 100 explod

mit, were found in the possession of

The Urltl.h Repalse Another Flare Afe
tack of the NatlTes.
Simla, July 31. A dispatch from Camp
Malakand reports another night at
tack by the tribesmen. The natives
fought desperately for several hour,
but were repulsed at all points. Bon
fires had been lighted around th
camp, and in the glare the tribesmen
were easy targets for the English rlfle
men. Many fell, and In the light of tbc
flames the natives could be seen remov
ing their dead. It Is reported that tht
mullah was badly wounded, and that
several of his principal chiefs Were dis
abled. "
The British lost 1 man and lTvwound
ed, among the latter being Lieutenant
Costello, who was wounded the second
time. He had received a slight wound
during the attack on Wednesday.
The losses of the enemy Is believed to
have been heavier than on any previous
occasion. The fact that the mullah wm
wounded and his chief dlsclpls killed
will dishearten the fanaflcs. The mul
lah posed as divinely Inspired end s
able to capture Malakand.
The force of the mullah have hem
augmented by a strong gathering of
the natives on the hills to the right of
the British position. The theory Is that
the Bonorwals have risen. Ths situa
tion is now somewhat relieved by th
arrival of re-enforaements under Colo
nel Reed from Nowshora. v.
Gokhlee Withdraws HI Charfe.
Bombay, July 81. The notorious Pro
fessor Gokhlee, an agitator against the
British administration, has Just landed
here. The police searched his baggage;
but, contrary to expectation, did not ar
rest him. A crowd of Mahrattas cheered
him upon his arrival. Gokhlee Is the pro
fessor in the Deccan college who -wrote
to the Poona papers accusing the Brit
ish soldiers of having assaulted two wo
men, one of whom subsequently com
mitted suicide.
After landing he unreservedly with
drew the charges. He admits that he
was misled by the persons at Poona
from whom he got the information on
which his allegations were based and
says he is prepared to make a full apol
ogy to the government.
Killed by a Cyclone.
San Jose, Ills., July 31. At 7 o'clock
last evening a cyclone struck the farm
of A. C. McDowell, two miles north of

tirely destroyed. Seven people . were
killed and three severely injured. The
killed are: A. C. McDowell, McDowell's
grandson, wlfo of Samuel Brownie,
three of Brownlee's children and Mies
Jessie Groves. Mrs. A. C McDowell,
her son Charles and ' daughter Mary
were severely Injured. ...
Tnrks Angry With England.'
Constantinople, July 31. It Is' reported
here that Lord Salisbury, the British
prime minister, has telegraphed urging
the immediate withdrawal of Kdhem
Pasha, the commander In chief 6f the
Turkish forces, from Thessaly. . The
Turks are very angry and accuse the
British government of trying' to jockey
them out of Thessaly without' compen
sation being made. ' -'
