Mr. l'adercwski was given a most
cordial reception, nothwithstanding the
fact that the audience enjoyed the ills

during the past two years.
Paderewsky played to wildly clamor
ous women a second lime in Music
Hall this morning. They came in
droves and scores, and coughed and
sneezed and immolated themselves c.ji

idol. They cried aloud in crazy en
thusiasm, and vied with one another in

the air was a mass of fluttering lace
and linen. They followed him from
the building to the electric launch, and
waved kisses at their hero. He stood
on the deck like a statue, bowing a
most gracious farewell. This was his
parting ovation. Music can sooth the
savage breast, but it cannot warm the
shivering body, and that is why the
popular concert this morning was ex
ceedingly unpopular. It was the first
one in a series of free entertainments
which promises to be among the finest
features of the exposition when summer
comes and the sun makes the big
Auditoiium fit to sit in. The audience
was cosmopolitan, with men from tin
far ends of the earth and others from
near at hand. A group of blight-faced
mandarins from the Chinese theater
company was flanked by a visiting dele
gation of ultra English nabobs. A com
pany of ecstatic Frenchmen annoyed
some sturdy dermans who sat m
trance. Stylish Austrians and turbaned
Turks elbowed one another, and a line
of Japanese filled the front row. Had
the weather been a trifle warmer even
the men would have enjoyed it.
MAKING ACTORS LAUGH.
Tricks of Teasing, or Spiteful Comrades
on the Stage.
There is a good deal of spitefulness
in theatrical life in France, and I dare
say everywhere else. Nothing is harder
in pathetic parts than to keep a serious
countenance, and pathos is what best
pays on the stage. An actress who
has the power to draw pocket-hand
kerchiefs to all eyes has the ball at her
foot. The eift of tears is therefore a
much envied one.
Masculine comrades are just as jeal
ous of it as feminine. They nearly all
lay themselves out to make the lady
gifted with it laugh when she is trying,
by means of auto-suggestion, to en
hance her usual pathetic effec's in
weeping herself. A favorite practical
joke is to slip into a hand that one is
seizing as a lover, or grasping as a
friend, an orange, or an apple, or it
may be a homely potato. The situa
tion of an actor on whom such a joke
is played is more than awkward if his
part makes it necessary for him to in
dulge at once after receiving the fruit
in manual gesticulation. The actress
can possibly thrust her orange or her
apple into her pocket or corsage.
The temptation to laugh is greater
at drawing-room theatricals than on
the stage. Sometimes when one actor
or actress begans to laugh all the others
are ready to go into "kinks," they be
ing suggestioiuies by the one who be
gan. At one of Mine. Rodocanachi's
latest theatrical soirees it was found
impossible, owing to contagious
laughter, for the actors and actresses
of the Francais whom she had en
gaged to give "La Tasse de The,"
which they came to play. Sarah Bern
hardt used to be very subject to
laughter in the wrong place, and Mille
Croizette was amiable enough to pro
voke her to laugh when she was trying
to auto-suggest herself into weeping.
Actresses have one decided advantage
over actors who have not been made
effeminate by theatrical life. It is in
their capacity for auto-suggestion.
While keeping reality in view, watching
how they influence gentlemen in the
pit and boxes, and thinking what dia
monds their pathetic effects may bring
them, they really work themselves up
into a state of mind which gives them
for the time being a double nature.
Doctors say that this is the reason why
tragic actresses become in the long run
half mad and die early.
Comic actresses do not need any sort
of falsity beyond what is required in
their make-up. If they play cleverly
and their diction is good, they will do.
- Indeed they must keep their heads
cool all the time they are playing and
trust less to dresses than to talent.
The Polytechnic of London has ar
ranged a series of excursions to the
World's Fair, by means of which over
1,400 English mechanics will be en
abled to make the trip, with second
cabin passage, at a total expense for the
month's absence of $120.
Sontag and Evans have given notice
that they intend to remain in the mount
ains, and will defend themselves there.
Visalia is filled with detectives, hut they
do not appear to have advanced any
project by which the notorious train
robbers can be captured.
Chester Ayres, with traps baited with
cotton saturated with a nostrum whose
odor is pleasant to the nostrils of coy
otes, has been able to capture and kill
within five weeks forty-six coyotes in
Mendocino county, whose scalps bring
him near $1,450. Hc bounty from the
county and the sheepmen.
Are we to be, or not to be,
