PANTOMIME HAD BAD EFFECT.
London Youth Copied Crimes of Hero of Stage. Are modern melodramas harmful to uneducated minds? Some of the old time pantomimes in London proved to he. In the eighteenth century one of the most popular productions at the Drury Lane theater of those days was a pantomime called "Harlequin Jack Sheppard,” which was simply a reproduction of the crimes of this popular young criminal, who was only 23 when he was hanged. His chief appeal to the popular imagination was hiS brilliant escape from Newgate prison with the fetters on his hands, and when he was made the subject of a Christmas entertainment hundreds flocked to see it. It was even proved that numbers of boy pickpockets who filled the prisons about that time had got their first inspiration to thieve from this melodramatic entertainment, and one boy confessed that he stole in order to get to the pantomime and hoped some day to be as clever as Jack Sheppard. \ REFLECTIONS.

It was in a street car, but on the rear seats where one was allowed to smoke that this occurred. A peppery looking woman was sitting on one of thes*> 3eats, evidently taking umbrage at an Irishman who was smoking. Firnlly her indignation mounted so high that she adjusted her pince-nez glasses on her thin nose and inquired: “My good man, are you accustomed to smoke in the presence of a lady?” “No, mum I” replied the Irishman stolidly, and continued smoking. Two girls up in front tittered and the peppery lady got off two blocks farther on.—New Orleans Times Dem ocrat Ascent of Monte Rosa.
