Eclipsed Henry Irving. London, Liec. 5. With V"ednesday afternoon's revival of "As You Like It., at the St. James. Ceo. Alexander is said to have eclipsed Sir Henry Irving. Never before has London seen such staging and accessories. The surprise of the production was the great suc cess of Fay Davis, the American act ress, whose Ceiia the critics pronounce to be the best ever seen in London. Ellen Terry Needs Hest. London. Dec. 5. Ellen Terry has abandoned any intention of appearing) in "Richard HI" when produced at the I Lycc'tim. This is due to an alleged need of rest. It is the general opin- ion that Irving has never been seen to 1 less advantage than in the character ot "lachimo," even when his performance of "Macbeth" is remembered. EPIGRAMMATIC SLANG. Phrases That Are Common In Cheap New York RestaursmtB. Special. Correspondence. Nf.w York, Xov. 16. Tho recent epidemic of Trilby ism has even pene trated the recesses of the Bowery. To day in tire "Deaneries, " or cheap res taurants, along that noted thoroughfare the up to date form of order for pigs' feet and mashed potatoes is, "Trilby for one; Little Biilee on the side." Thus a graceful tribute is paid to tho dreamy model's paditl extremities, while the meuiory of her sweetheart, or "mash," is also sympathetically kept green. Those humble hostelries have always, however, been famous for tha quaint and picturesque Ian pus are of their serv itors, and the expression quoted above is not the wisest or wittiest of their fliKhts cf fancy. For example, a foreigner, or, for that matter, almost any Gotham ite residing out of the lower wards of tho city, would be greatly perplexed at hearing an order given for "a cup of coffee on stilts." But it merely means that a gen erous portion of the beverage is to ba permitted to overflow into the saucer after the cup is filled. Again, when poached fggs, with their bclging yel low centers, are sought for a customer, the request to "blind both eyes " seems to convey the requisite information to the coaic. "Fry two, rock two to sleep and turn two nvtr" expresses in a light and play ful manner tho fact that two eggs are to be fried on one side, two more to be scrambled and f-till another two to be cooked on both sides. A fried beefsteak with onions is designated by this rather startling formula: "Slaughter in the pan. Shipwreck it." Thereby due and proper cognizance is taken of the san guinary color of the meat, while a halo of high poetic fancy hovers around the curled up edges of tho slicad onions which are made to suggest tho tumbling breakers on the shore. Of course it would be an almost end loss task to follow tip these verbal va garies of the "Deanery" waiters. It is sufficient to remark that they are al ways original and amusing, sooner or later making their way from one end of the country to the other. In fact, this class is as much aKew York institution as Central park or the Bowery itself, and in their way are perhaps the most prolific coiners of epigrammatic slang phrases in tho world. E. W.

The 14 j'ear old son of William White, a carpenter at 212 Monroe street, was badly beaten by an elder brother this morning, and altogether it caused such a commotion in the neighborhood that the police were summoned. No arrests were made, however. It seems that young White had re mained away from school one day this week and the father found it out. The boy is a brother of Frank White who has been in jail several times for stealing, and when the father found out that the boy had not been at school, he immediately said that the boy had re mained out for the purpose of stealing what he could find to steal. Th.is the boy stoutly denied and he was supported by his mother, who said he had remained away for the purpose of going to a show. The father would not accept that statement, and told his 20 year old son to take the boy down cellar and give him a whipping. This the older boy. Will, started to do, but the boy resisted, and there was a scuffle. The boys were in the sitting room when the scuffle began, and it was in the hall that the hardest of it was fought. The young boy was thrown down on the floor and his head struck the door in such a way that his ear was badly cut and partly torn away from his head. It was about here that the husband and wife joined into the quarrel, and soon there was such a noise that the en tire neighborhood was aroused and the police sent for. Sergeant Donovan and Officer Pear sails went down and quieted it, but made no arrests. EASILY BROKEN RONE. A Young Man's Arm Snaps in an Un expected Iilanner. T. II. Devlin, a young man 18 years of age who is employed at the Santa Fe shops in this city, had his arm broken yesterday afternoon in a peculiar way. A fellow employe accidentally ran against him. striking his arm below the elbow, and though the force of the col lision was but slight. Devlin immediate ly discovered that one of the bones of the arm was broken. A few daj s ago, however, young Dev lin had the same arm caught in a belt on one of the machines at the shops, and severely wrenched. He felt no es pecial pain, and thought no more about it at the time, but it is now supposed that the bone of the arm was at least partially fractured when caught in the belt. LOCAL MENTION.
