Intent of the author in the smallest particular.
The performance given at Booth's Theatre
Friday afternoon in aid of the Irish Relief
Fund attracted the smallest audience that
has appeared in the house since the manage

on and around the stage.

Oar.i. Gilbert sand Sullivan have formed

Company A is the one now sinlinug at the

tc.O; and Company D, which sang the other
night at Buffalo, will proceed into the West

Mr. N. C. Goodwin, Jr, and wife (Eliza
Weathersby) and Miss Jennie Weathersby
will sail for Eurooe in June, acoompanied
probabl by Mr. Ernest Stanley, who, it is
mored, wll by that time have a closer re
lationsh th thathat of business manager to
the party. Col. J. H. Haverly offered the
Frolf~ues very handsome terms for a twenty
weeks engagement in Great Britain, but
they prefer to make the trip for rest and
recreation.
A writer in the Chlago Inter-Ocean states
that Mr. Bothern's right name Is Douglas
Stewart. This is an error. Mr. Sothern's
name is Sothern. The name of "Douglas
Stewart," or Stuart, was assumed by him
when he first went upon the stage; but, after
a time, by the adviceof J. W. Wlack, the
veteran, he reverted to his real name. The
same writer asserts that the statement so
often made that Lawrence Barrett's real name
is "Larry Brannigan" is untrue.
Boucloault's pretended wish to help the
suffering poor in Ireland by inducing the
New York managers to glve the use oftheir
theatres on March seventeenth for that ob
ject. is all very well as far as it goes. And
surely under these clroumstances one would
think that he could have no objection to hav
ing any one of his pieces played on that day.
But when E. H. Gouge, of Jersey City, asked
him for the"Colleen Bawn," Boualoault flatly
refused to let him have it on any terms.
That's charity.
Fanny Davenport and company have con
tributed $s1550 to the Herald relief fund.
John Mo0ullough and Bandmann have each
sent $500. Frank Mayo has adopted the fol
lowing plan: After the seventeenth of March
to devote 10 per cent of the gross receipts of
the Olympic New York, until May 1 to the re
lief fund. He also offers the use of the thea
tre for say matinee benefit one afternoon each
week, erxcpting Wednesday and Saturday.
Thus itwll be seen that the profession is aid

AFRICAN SALUTATIONS.
The Ceremonious Observances Necessary
When Two Afrioans Meet.
During his exploration of Tlbesti, Dr. Nach
tgal exyerienoed many dangers and dim
culties, losing his way, and suffering from
want of water and forced night marches. A
very interesting account Is given of the cere
onlaials observed by the Tubu people in greet
ing one another. A most elaborate perform
ance is gone through when two strangers
meet in this wild country. Each of the per
formers covers all his face but his eyes with
his turban, seizes his spoar and throwing-iron
(a curious boomerang-like weapon with a long
projecting prong on the concave margin), and
thus preared, the two approach one another.
At a distance of about six steps from one an
other they squat on their heels with spears
upright in one hand and iron in the other.
The one then asks "How do you do?" about
a dozen times by means of four different
words having that meaning used alternately,
the reply being varied of the use of two
words Labs, or Killala. Then one of the two
loudly sings the word "ihilla," which is re
turned by the other in a similar tone. The
word is exchanged again and again, being
commenced in aloud, high-pitched note and
gradually run down the scale until it reaches
a low basse murmur. When it has become so
low as scarcely to be heard, on a sudden it is
shouted again in high key and the gamut is
run through as before. This goes on for a
very long while, the performers going through
it as a strict matter of -ceremony, and taking
no interest in one another all the while, but
looking round at the horizon or elsewhere
during their vocal exertions. After a while
various forms of the question "Howare you?"
and the answer "Well," are introduced; at
last questions or other topics are brought for
ward, although now and again the "Ihilla"
bursts out in the midst of them, but the series
of notes in which it is shouted become shorter
and shorter. At last the "ihllla" is got rid of
altogether, and ordinary conversation be
~ames possible. Strangers do not shake
hcnds, but acquaintances do. The covering
of the face when greeting or meeting strangers
is considered as a most important matter of
etiquette.
The "Blood-Rsed Knight."
[London Telearaph.]
Burglary is, however, a much less common
erime among the Celtic races than violence
and robbery of the prson, and, despite the
multiplicity of agrarian outrages for which
Ireland has always been Infamous, it has often
been boasted on the Green Isle that house
robbery ik an English rather than an Irish
offense. An attempted burglary, which hap
pened not far from Doneralle, in the county of
Cork, is indeed still spoken of, so that the
story has become historical, although the
event occurred nearly seventy years ago.
On the morning of March 11, 1811, a gentle
man named Purcell was in bed on the ground
floor in a house of which he was the sold oocu
pant. He was an eccentric old man, and re
pated to be very wealthy. As he lay in bed
he heard a noise in the next room, and
through the open door he saw a man jump
from the window-sill into the apartment.
The intruder was followed by another and
altogether Mr. Purcell ascertained by listen.
Ing acutely, that six robbers bad got into his
house. The moon was shionng brightly, and
the brave old man believing that his life
would be forfeited, determined to sell it dear
ly, He concealed itumself in the shade
by the side of the doorway between the
bedroom and sittlag-room, and, knife in
hand, awaited the first comer, who fell
fatally stabbed to the heart. A second thief
advanced and thrust his gun into the room.
Mr. Purcell saw that the muzzle was not
pointed at his body, and, as the gun was dis
charged, struck its holder dead just below
the collarbone. As the third of the band
crept cautiously across the threshold Mr.
Purcell discovered that his knife was bent,
and calmly straightened the blade between
his teeth previous to plunging it Into his third
victim's heart.
The rest of the band daunted by the in
trepid resistance offered to them by a single
old man, retreated to an oven window, and,
getting out of it with all speed, turned their
backs upon a house which already contained
three of their dead companions. Mr. Pur
cell, when the story was told to Mr. Perceval,
then Prime Minister, was knighted for his
bravery, and went ever afterwards by the
name of "The Blood-red Knight."
How Washington's Birthday Was Cele

have made no objection to such a proceeding,
and provided the $200 for the purpose; but he
has since learned that the agent was fooling
