Another fine bill is announced at the
Orpheum for next week. The only act
from last week's bill that wiH b - retain d
is the Knaben-Kapelle, and this feature
the theater goers of Sacramento will
only be glad to have on the bill as they
are undoubtedly the musical sensation
of the time. Next week they will appear
In an entirely new repertoire. We will
have the opportunity now of seeing the
clever Belgian, Servias Le Roy, said to
be the most skilled and clever illusionist
and magician who has appeared in this
country, not excepting even Herrmann.
Le Roy was brought direct from Vienna
to San Francisco by Gustav Walter and
the most severe of the San Francisco
critics have taken off their hats to the
new illusionist. A very funny act on the
bill is that by O. K. Sato, comic juggler,
who is not only clever as a prestidigita
t. ur, but does his work in such a way as
to provoke great laughter. Fred Brown,
The six-year-old drummer of the Boys'
"iJiind at the Orpheum.
one of the most clever of rag time dan
cers, wil appear in his specialties. In
big particular line he is said to head the
list. Stanley and Jackson, sketch artists,
will be seen in thejr comedy sketch writ*
ten for them, entitled "Before the Ball."
M las Jackson makes a fine stage appear
ar.ee, elegantly costumed, and Mr. Jack
ton introduces some character work that
gives him lank as an artist. Harry Ed
-800 and his d. g "Doc" will be an at
tractive feature. The cute little dog
"Doc" has been taught to do many sur
prising and interesting tricks and the
best of his work is that he apparently :
teems to understand every word spoken j
to him. Purila, a charming soubrette,
Will make her debut on the Orpheum cir
cuit. She will appear In a rendition of

lights, intently watching every move
ment made and every word uttered by
the aotcrs were two men, apparently
diametrically opposite in every way.
One was a robust-loking individual of
about fifty rears, with an Iron-gray
mustache, a ruddy complexion, and a
voice like the bellow of a frightened
Bte-er: the other was a blonde, slight,
li .-, ectacled young man, who might
pass for a theological student without
the aid of wardrobe or make-up. They
were McKee Rankin and George EL

What has been often referred to as
the glamour of the footlights was no
«hreto be seen. The footlights were
ther e_wh!ie, r< I, and green electric
lamps, looking like the dull, expres
sionless eyes of some mythological
beast —but they did not glamour in the
least degree. In the serni-darktuss two
Wi men and one man could be discerned.

shirt front so vividly red that it
loomed up like'a danger signal in a
After a few lines of dialogue the wo
men left the stage and a girl entered
with a small square piece of cardboard..
She handed it to the man, saying- some
thing which sounded like "Ai got hum
out dare."
Instantly Mr. Eroadhurst was on his
i et. He didn't look like a theologian
then, and his voice wouldn't have been
, very suitable to pulpit utterances.
"That won't do," he said, "you are
supposed to be a Swede girl. A Swede
never says 'got,' she says 'gat.' Go
back, please, and try it again."
The girl made the entrance again
and repeated the line this time to the
satisfaction of both the stage man
ager and the author. She had not said
much before Mr. Rankin stopped her.
"To whom are you speaking?" he
"To the professor," was the reply.
"Exactly," rejoined the autocrat of
the production, "and since he is on the
stage kindly refrain from looking into
the auditorium when addressing re
marks to him." Then, in a louder
tone, he said: "Ladies and gentlemen!"
At this all the members of the com
pany came quickly to the various en
trances. 'This applies to everybody. I
Wish you to distincly understand that
so far as this organization is concern
ed talking at the audience will not be
tolerated. It is altogether too com
mon nowadays. So far as the actor is
concerned, the audience should not ex
ist. That's all."
At this, the actors not engaged in
the scene disappeared and the rehear
sal was resumed. In a few minutes
there came an abrupt halt, and imme
diately Mr. Rankin roared: "Mrs.
Goodlj ! Mrs. Goodly! You've missed
that cue again," and then, as the im
personator of Mrs. Goodly appeared at
the entrance in a state of evident per
turbation he continued: "Now, ladies!
ladies!"—this with that rising inflec
tion which conveys so much —"if you
will cease chattering and attend to
business, you will oblige me greatly.
I am here to conduct a rehearsal—not
a school for conversation. Let us go
back to Mrs. Goodly's entrance, please."
The next scene was a bustling one.
It was all action and pantomime, and
had to be timed to a nicety. One of
the company did not seem to grasp Mr.
Rankin's idea, and that gentleman
played the part while the actor watch
ed him from the front. Even then he
could rot do it to the stage manager's
Satisfaction, and finally he said: "But
don't you think if I went down stage
here, then crossed to the left and shook
hands with Marjorie, everything would
be satisfactory?"
"Yes," replied Mr. Rankin; "that's
pretty good business. When you pro
duce a play, put it in."
As the rehearsal proceeded it became
evident that Mr. Broadhurst was a
stickler for correct pronounciation, in
which tespect he seemed to differ from
tho member* of the company. The
op* n "v" sound in such words as "ab
solutely" and "presume" proved a
stumbling block, but the pronunciation
of "really" caused the most trouble.
One actor insisted on pronouncing it
"reely," and another showed a wonder
ful fondness for it in the form of "rare
ly," but after many trials and strug
gles matters were- finally adjusted.
Si aea such as the above would prove
conclusively to any stage-struck mdi!

The Religious Thought of the Day
as Expressed in the Sec
tarian Press.
"Christian ethics," says the "Living
Church" (P. E.J of Chicago, are haiSPd
upon the incarnation, if that great
fundamental fact be denied, or ignor
ed, the foundation is taken away. And
while a few highly cultured suuls might
be able to give practical affect to their
beiiei in the universal fatherhood of
God and the universal brotherhood of
man, the majority of people, deprived
ot this great motive power, will rind
themselves unequal to tins high moral
ideal, and niui>i inevitably suik to a
lower tevaL We have but to open our
eyes to see this process going forward
under the influences which now exist.
Among the thousands of people who
no louger enter our churches on Sun
day, there are few who will say that
they do not believe in the 'ethical
Creed.' But as they have no feeling of
positive obligation, there is observable
a distinct decline to a lower level of
moral responsibility. Y'uu will make
little progress in elevating the lower
races out of paganism, by means of the
doctrine of the fatherhood of God and
the brotherhood of man, until they
bave a; si been quickened out of their
degraded condition by impcirting to
them the fundamental Christian truths
which He at the foundation of all spir
itual advance."

Discussing Dr. Lyman Abbou's "The
ology of an Evolutionist," the "Church
Sianuaid" (P. E.) of Philadelphia re
mark.;: "The press is flooded with just
such vapid iningiings of pseudo-science
and pseudo-theology as that of which
Dr. Abbott is the protagonist. It has
only two defects: It is not science, and
it is not theology. As a defense of
Christianity it has this fatal fault, that
the pretended defense is a surrender.
But not to an enemy. Science is no
enemy to religion, and the scientific
evolutionary theory is no more incon
sistent with Christianity than the the
ory of the planetary system. Holding,
as W<i do, the really 'old theology' of
the Catholic Church, we cannot only
regard the evolutionary theory with
equanimity, we can go so far as to be
lieve that the minutest jut of the Cath
olic creed is perfectly consistent with
every fact which any competent man
of sen nee will publiciy aver to have
been scientifically verified. We go even
further. We affirm that every sylla
ble of the Catholic creed is consistent
with the evolutionary theory to the ut
most extent to which competent men
of science will aver that evolution ac
counts for the phenomena of nature.
Unscientific and 'radical' theories like
that of Dr. Abbott create difficulties
which their so-called and miscalled
theologies do nothing to remove. It
will be time enough to permit our
selves to be troubled by them when
they shall have something more solid
to rest upon than pure speculation
which is unsupported by a single fact."

"There can be no progress in elemen
tal truths," observes the "Interior"
(Presbyterian) of Chicago. "The laws
and facts of physics, for example, are
no different from what they were a
thousand or a million years ago, and
yet it is only comparatively a little
while, since men first began.to compre
hend them. The vast progress that has
been made does not imply any change
in tha nature or tendencies of physical
forces, but it lies in the success of the
human mind in acquiring knowledge of
them and in its skill in employing and
applying them. This is equally true in
the regions of spiritual dynamics. If
the theologian had made no progress
in the past centuries it would imply
an atrophy of his powers. It would
imply that theology . had passed its
prime and was descending to senility
and dissolution. And this is the con
clusion of the agnostic. He infers it
from a supposed incapacity of theology
to adapt itself to new conditions, and
this inference he draws from the seem
ing incapacity of the churches to modi
fy their formularies, doctrinal, ritual
istic and other. But the truth is that
Christianity has so grown, expanded,
and changed in the past five hundred,
or even three hundred, years, that
there are no points of resemblance be
tween its external and its mediaeval
past. The sum of the changes amounts
to revolution and reconstruction. A
comparison will show that the change
is constantly toward simplicity of doc
trine and directness of application—a
constant increase of conformity to the
type of Jesus Christ."

"Perhaps we did not make our mean
ing entirely plain when we spoke of
the passing of close communion," say 3
the New York "Independent." "We
did not mean the passing of the theory;
we meant the passing of its enforce
ment. All that is interesting eccle
siastically is the question of tolerance.
One may believe what he pleases, but
the question is whether close commun
ion is to be Insisted upon as the law cf
the Baptist churches. As soon as open
communion is allowed without disci
pline, and in fact without any effective
protest, then close communion is dead,
or, at least, is sucking Its thumbs. Then
close communion becomes nothing but
an academical or philosophical corpse,
like the bondage of the will or limited
atonement, and not a live religious
question. It is ecclesiastically a matter
of indifference. All these were once
live religious tests: and so was close
communion in the early seventies. A
little excitement like this at the Bap
tist Congress proves its death. Probat

made the shrewdest forecasts of the
currents of popular thought." remarks
the "Watchman (Bapt.) of Boston.
"Twenty-five years ago the Roman
theologians and statesmen saw thac re
ligious discussion was to center about
the question of certainty in matters of
faith They determined to erect a pos
itive, external srandard. and the doc
trine of papal infallibility was promul
gated. As a piece of ecclesiastical
statesmanship that was a coarse cf
prodigSous wisdom. We doubt if many
of the Protestants who condemn the
arrogance, the unreason, and blasphe
my of that decree realize the extent to
which that doctrine has been the bul
wark of the revival of Romanism dur
ing the last twenty years. On the oth
er hand, the Protest an: world has b i n
the arena of jangiing parties. When
a high doctrine of the Inspiration of
the Scriptures was abandoned by many
religious leaders, there was nothing to
fall back upon. In the popular
thought, all doctrines were equally mat
nify the importance of creeds was co
incident with the acceptance of a low
view of inspiration. The tactics re
sorted to were natural but unwise.
When the Inspiration of the Scriptures
was shaken, their authority could not
be transferred to documents based
upon them."
Tigers and Jaguars Get Their First
Taste of the Herb.
An armful of fresh green catnip was
plucked from the golf grounds of the
Exmoor Club at Highland Park. It
was taken to Lincoln Park and permis- i
sion was asked of Animal Keeper De I
Vry to try the effects of the green stuff j
on the feline members of his family.
This herb, which dws not grow, so far
at is known, in the haunts of the cous
ins to the cats, created a great sensation
atthel'OU. Perhaps the most .astonishing
e\ent connected with the tour ot the
cages happened just as the visitor v uh
his big bundle of catnip left the office
of the keeper in the animal house. The
scent of the plant filled the wiioie place,
and as soon as it had reached the par
rot's corner the two gaudiiy attired
macaws set up a noise that drowned
Thought and made for the side
of the cage, poking their heads and
ciaws through. When the catnip was
brought near them they became nearly
frantic. They were given some and de
voured it, stem, leaf and blossom, with
an avidity commensurate with the noise
of their voice.
The keeper and the catnip carrier
then made for the carriage of Billy, the
African ieopard. Now, Billy, so far as
is known, had never before smelled or
seen a leaf of the plant. Before the
front of hie cage was reached he had
bounded from the shelf whereon he lay,
apparently asleep, and stood expectant,
alert and with brightened eyes at the
bars of his cage. This African exotic
Went simply insane. The man with the
catnip purposely waited a few minutes
before he poked any of the green leave*
and yellowish white flowers of the plant
through to the big cat.
Finally a double handful of catnip
was passed through to the floor of the
den. Never was the prey of this Afri
can dweller in his wild state pounced
upon more rapidly or with more abso
lutely savage enjoyment. First Billy
ate a mouthful of the catnip, then he
lay flat on his back and wriggled his
Blnuous length, through the green mass ,
until his black-spotted, yellow hide was
permeated with the odor of the plant
from shoulders to tall tip. Then Billy ,
sat on a bunch of the catnip, caught a
leaf-laden stem up in either paw and
rubbed his cheeks, chin, nose, eyes and
hand. Heated with his exertions, he
exuded catnip at every pore. He ate
an additional mouthful or two of the ;
stuff, and then jumped back to his
shelf, where he lay, the very picture of
satiety and contentment.
In the tigers' cage there is a very
young but full-grown animal, captured
within eighteen months in the Jungles
of India. He is a powerful brute, and
one with which even the keepers do not i
seek a close acquaintance. When this
great, surly beast inhaled the first sniff
of the catnip he began to mew like a
kittem Prior to this the softest note
of his voice had been one which put the
road of the big-maned South African
lion to shame. That vicious tiger and
his kindly dispositioned old mate fairly
revelled in the liberal allowance of the
plant which was thrust into their cage.
They rolled ai>out in it and played to
gether like six-weeks-old kittens. They
mewed and purred, evidently discuss
ing the question as to what this strange
plant was which gave them a variety of
pleasure never before experienced. They
tossed it about, ate of it, and. after get
ting about as liberal a dose as had Bil
ly, the leopard, they likewise leaped to
their respective shelves and blinked laz
ily at the sun.
The big lion. Major, was either too
dignified or too lazy to pay more than
passing attention to the bunch of cat
nip which fell to his lot. He ate a
mouthful or two of ft and then licked
his chops in a "that's not half bad"
way, and then went back to his nap.
The three baby lions quarreled over
their allowance and ate it every bit, but
they could not be beguiled, despite !
their tender years, Into frolicking over
