"If I Were Kins at English's.
If Francois Villon were to return to earth
and see himself Impersonated by Mr.
Sothern in Justin Huntly McCarthy's play
of "If I were King," he would exclaim,
"Can this be I? No, of a certain, no!" If
any member of the old and obscure family
of Villon exist. It Is hl3 part to come for
ward and publicly thank Mr. Sothern and
Mr. McCarthy for doing much to clear the
name of Villon of a stain put upon It by
Francois, who, though he was a noble poet
and is respected for that, was personally
of a very bad sort. History frankly calls
him a gutter-snipe, a thief, an associate of
the lowest men and women that fifteenth
century Paris produced. R. L. Stevenson,
heeding history, wrote of Villon in his short
story "A Lodging for the Night," and put
his face and figure into the following
words: "The poet was a rag of a man, dark,
little and lean, with hollow cheeks and thin
black locks. He carried his four and twen
ty years with feverish animation. Greed
had made folds about his eyes, evil smiles
had puckered his mouth. The wolf and pig
struggled together in his face. It was an
eloquent, sharp, earthly, ugly countenance.
His hands were small and prehensile, with
fingers knotted like a cord; and they were
continually flickering in front of him in
violent and expressive pantomime."
Villon lived his life in misery and died
away from Paris, no one knows where.
He knew what he was, and once, when he
expected no better than to be hanged with
five of his comrades in crime, he wrote a
ballad oeglnnlng thus:
Brothers, that after us on life remain,
Harden your hearts against us not as
For, if to pity us poor wights you're fain,
God shall the rather grant you benlson.
You see us six, the gibbet hereupon;
As for the flesh that we too well have fed,
'Tis all devoured and rotted, shred by
Let none make merry of our piteous case.
Whose crumbling bones the life long since
The rather, pray God grant us of His
The Francois Villon designed by Mr. Mc
Carthy and embodied at English's Opera
House last night by Mr. Sothern for the
public's amusement entered upon the great
affairs of his career not unlike the real
Villon conducted himself. The curtain rose
to show the interior of an Inn. Young men
and women, .ragged and dirty, were drink
ing and shaking dice at a table, making a
noise like that which rose from the
Brocken. Here and there a fellow kissed
his girl with fine relish. The host, a pot of
a man with an ulcerated face, scurried
about refilling mugs. Louis XI, King of
France, attended by one of his ministers,
entered disguised as a citizen. He was go
ing among his people, like a CailifC of the
"Arabian Nights" tales, to see and hear
what he could. Came then Francois Vil
lon. He had made bold to send some of his
verses to a lady of the court with whom
he had fallen in love on sight, and he had
been beaten with clubs for his Impudence.
He was sick at heart and bemoaned his in
juries and his wickedness at once, the
while drinking heavily. The ribald conver
sation turning upon the fact that the Bur
gundlans were storming the wells of Paris,
Villon gave expression to his contempt for
the King in a ballad.
The lady of the court whose charms had
ensnared the heart of Villon also came to
the tavern. Villon's verses had made an
impression on her; s-he wondered if the
poet were man enough to slay the grand
constable of France, who had insulted her.
Villon was overwhelmed at her appear
ance, but he promised to kill this mean per
son, and when he, too, came into the place,
he ? set upon by the poet. The wall
light'- were put out, and Villon and the
grar. i constable, each with a lantern in
one hand and a sword in the other, had
at etch other, and the poet wounded the
high official after a sharp conflict. The
wounded man cried out for Villon to be
hanged Immediately, but the king, reveal
ing himself, ordered otherwise. Villon was
drugged, and, going to sleep in a cell, he
woke in the morning between sheets of
fine linen, was dressed in gorgeous raiment,
like Sir Christopher Sly, and was to.d that
he was the new grand constable, second
only to the king In power.
The change In Villon's position was not
greater than the change of scene from the
filthy cabaret to the roe garden of the
king's palace. The ground was covered
with a thick lawn, blossoming rose vines
covered the walls and the marble stairway
that led up to the piazza. Here it was
Villon's first duty as grand constable to
pass Judgment on his one-time companions,
who had been arrested the night before
at the inn. They did not recognize him in
his tine clothes and with his beard gone.
After terrifying them by exposing his
knowledge of their misdeeds, he gave them
money and told them to go free. He had
especial words of kindness for the women,
who made their living so wretchedly by
selling themselves, and ho fold them to
pray that God might make men better.
Having had the pleasure of thus liberally
dispensing favors and airing beatulful
sentiments, he had the pain of hearing the
king describe the extent of his jest. Un
less he should win Katherlne de Vaucelles,
whom he already loved, Villon should die
at the end of a week; or, If he did not wish
to be grand constable of France for a week
he would be stripped of his robes then
and be drubbed out into the streets. The
regenerated poet decided to take the
chance. The lady told him that she could
not love the starveling poet, but she finally
came to love the grand constable; In turn,
the grand constable lost her love by re
vealing himself to her as the poet. She
declared she hated him for his deceit.
There was nothing left but the hang
man's noose on the next day, so Villon de
cided to' squeeze Joy into the few hours
that remained to him by leading the army
against the Rurgundlans. Even this pleas
ure almost was denied to him. for the man
whom he had wounded in the inn tried now
to stab him and would have succeeded if a
girl, one of the lost sisterhood, had not
slipped in and taken the knife into her
own breast. She loved Villon.
The closing scene was in a court yard.
In front of a cathedral was a throne for
the King and the Queen, and in front of
this was a gibbet whereon Villon was to
die. He came to the place followed by his
soldiers and the populace, all cheering
madly. They had driven off the Rurgun
dlans. But the King was determined to
have his joke out. and Villon must hang
unless some one would be his substitute
on tie gallows. Just when it seemed that
no one would volunteer Villon's mother, a
bent and shabby old woman, hobbled from
the crowd and offered herself. Of course,
she was not accepted. Then Katherlne de
Vaucelles appeared, beautifully gowned
and said she would die for Villon, for she
truly loved him. Villon would not permit
the sacrifice, but he and Katherlne agreed
that he should kill her and then himself
with his dapgtr. Even this proved unnec
essary, for Katherlne bethought herself of
the simple trick of matrimony, which,
through a convenient complication of law.
would save her lover. The penalty for life
was exile, which they accepted gladlv. and
the series of in.-idents closed with Villon
noldlng Katherlne with one arm and his
mother with the other, while the mob

THE DRAMATIC CLUB PLAY.
The next play of the Dramatic Club will
be given on the evening of Shrove Tuesday,
Feb. 11. The club is especially honored in
being able to present Mr. Booth Tarklng-
ton's play "Margery's Kisses," and in hav
ing, his personal supervision In the rehear
sals. This is the fourth time that Mr.
Tarklngton has furnished the play for
Dramatic Club performances. The first of
his plays, which it presented, was "The
Ruse," a comedy in three acts, then "The
Prodigals," a comedy, which, by the way,
is the play that attracted Mr. Mansfield's
attention to Mr. Tarkington, and later
"Elolse de Marmantel." a play of the
French revolution. "Margery's Kisses"
was written for a neN York magazine
called John O'Dreams and published in it
anonymously in ISM. although the illustra
tions, which are beautiful, were signed by
Mr. Tarkington. It was written first as a
literary play, but like everything Mr. Tark
lngton has written wa3 so intensely drama
tic that he was persuaded to adapt it for
use on the stage. It is of one act. The
scene, which is at a ball given in Phila
delphia ten days before the evacuation of
the British troops, is remarkably condensed
and rich in incident. The action takes place
in a garden off the ballroom, where during
the whole scene the minuet Is being
danced. The cast Is an exceptionally good

Cored the Headache, Anyway.
I never did know what girls carry in all
those dangling boxes and flasks and chate
laine affairs that have now given way to
the omnipresent sliver bag, but I heard
the other day of what a Seventeenth-street
girl carried in hers. A month or so ago
she attended a luncheon, and her next-seat
neighbor complained to her of a racking
"Here," said the chatelaine girl, fishing
up a tiny bonbonnlere and passing it to
the sufferer under the table. "Take two
of these headache pellets. They're the
best thing I know, and will make you as
good as new in five minutes. Nobody
will see you. Just slip them out and swal
low them quick."
So the other girl felt under the table,
took out two of the small, smooth avoids,
popped them into her mouth, swallowed
them and soon her headache disappeared.
A fortnight later the two met again at
"Madge," called the girl who had had
her headcahe cured, across the table,
"give Flo some of those headache pellets
that helped me so the other day."
Madge fished up the little silver box and
passed It across the table.
"Let's see what they are before Flo takes
them," suggested the hostess. Madge opened
the box and gasped:
"Jennie!" she cried. "Did I give you the
pellets out of this round box?"
"Yes," said Jennie, "it was that same
"Great Scott!" said Madge. "I had my
headache pellets in the square box. You
swallowed two of those lovely Mexican
opals Uncle Charley brought me!"

The advent of the new secretary of

Mrs. Shaw, unlike most of the Cabinet

The openly expressed desire of three
European noblemen to marry American
heiresses is creating some amusing com

ambitious foreigners of title. The gen

says he is a German baron, He is an offi
cer who says he is worth 11,000.0)0 and
wishes to marry an American woman with
an equal amount of cash. The second does
not state his nationality, but says he Is
twenty-seven years old, "of highest aris

lie would marry some woman of means
who must be identified with the best so

advertisements went the round of a large

declared they knew who one of the aspir

CHICAGO, Feb. 4. On the announcement
in court to-day by the counsel in the
Dowie-Stephenson suit for receivership of
the ZIon lace industry that an agreement
had been reached by the parties to the
suit out of court. Judge Tuley dismissed
the suit and announced that Elmer Wash
burn, whom he had named as receiver,
would not be appointed. Attorneys for
both ildes refused to announce the basis
of settlement, but It is supposed that the
full amount claimed by Samuel Stephen
son, about $250,000, is close to the amount
Attorney Packard, for "Dr." John Alex

Tuley, in his decision, exonerated 'Dr.
Dowie from charges of fraud led to the
settlement. We did not deny that money
was due Stephenson, but we fought the
case because the charges made reflected
upon 'Dr.' Dowie."
