Ho reoalls with clearness every Instunco of seeming nnlmportanco which has transpired daring his ca reer. He ass heard speeches from the lips of Webster, Clr snd Calhoun. He enn almost repeat a ipeeoa ho heard delivered by Henry Clay in a crowded street of Msoon, when tho orator pre dicted the civil war. Ho was ssked for a story, and, ss his habit Is, ho hail sat for a moment qulettr smoking his pipe. At length he placed his pipe In his pocket and said: "Well, I will tell jou a real love story. It all happened twenty years before the war, when I wis attending school at tho Oeorgla University. At that time there existed among the proud Southerners no greater prejudice than that against none drovers. A horse drover was con sidered little better than a horse thlor. I met ono day a young man of tnla class and, In spite of mv share in the common prejudice, I was struok with his easy manner. I saw enougu of him to cornn to the conclusion that he would grace anybody's parlor, so one day I ssked him if ho would not like to call on a youua; lady friend ol mine. He said he would be glad to do so, and that afternoon we made a call on Miss Prlgslns. We found that she hail already two callers, youni men of the town. I Introduced iny friend, the horse drover, and you would have been amused to havo seen the coun tenance of the young men fad. Scarcely a half doien words wero exchanged before Jllis Frig, glns'a drat callers made their exit. My friend took in thesltuailonat once, but he had the good senae to not snow It. "After awhllo he was turning muslo for Miss l'rlu-gins wbUe she played upon the piano. When sho had finished he was aaked If he could not pi si. " ! play sometimes,' was his reply. " ' Will yon not play fur ust' UUs Prlxgins then asked. " He reluctantly consented. He took Ms posi tion In front of the Instrument, and we wire thrilled with muaio he made, lie touched the keys ot the piano with the ease and gracs of a master, and when he had flnlahed and refused to play more he bad won the friendship of Miss Frig ging, who wis on hli departuro oorolsl In her Invi tation for him to call again. "Well, he made several pleasant calls during his stay. He oame back the next season, and be fore he left town he and Miss I'rlgalns approached tho young lady's father und asked his consent to thilr marriage. " ' Since you both seem to desire It, I will not op pose your marriage, but If my daughter make a hard bed she must lie upon 11." '"It shall be at sort as leathern on make It,' was tho young man's pleasant rejoinder. "The wedding was set forHepu ID. When he came for his bride every ono was surprised at the dliplay he made. He wore an expensive suit and a servant in livery drove two magnificent Iron grays to his fine carriage, borne one, made bola by curl oalty, approached tho servant and Inquired who the young man might be. " ' W'y, sir, my master Is de riches' man In Kentuek', I 'xpect, sir. Ho owns de fines' farm In de country, and 'pears to me ba'f o' Louisville. ' " Further Inquiry elicited tho Information that the drover was really a man of means, who had travelled extensively and had miny accomplish ments.

Taylor Strickland, the negro who killed the horned make somo time ago near Armmlng, da. , killed another a few days ago, evidently a mate to the first, and near the same place. It measured nine feet, bad a bull-like hesd nearly as large as a calf's, and a four-Inch horn on the end ot Its tail. An old darky standing by when the description was given said: " Dat was 'er mighty small snake of Its kind. I killed one down In de Chattahoochee bottom dat mrsered thirteen feet.un had er horn seven Inches. It had deadened all de timber on bof aides er river fu'rx to' could see, I 'low dat was er biggest snako ever foun' in dls state." " Humph) Yer knows mighty little 'bout snakes ef yo'tlnks dat." said another white-haired old darkey, who looked disgusted at such a weak re cital of reptile stories.

From (A Dotton Tranttrlpt, The experience of the man In l'arla who at tempted suicide by Jumping from the Arc de Trl omphe aftc taking a dose of poison, and waa caught by a projecting iplke and suspended In mid air for a very bad quarter of an hour, lemla tho color of truth to a atrullar story which la good enough to be told avaln. If It Is old. Determined to bo rid of life, a man took a doae of polaon, put jla neck Into a noona fattened lo a seafiold ou the edge ot a cliff, held a pistol to his head, and as he lumped pulled the trUgtr, Ilia theory waa that If the poison was not effectual the rope would be. If the rope broke the sea vtould swallow him, and there vr.. also the chance that the pistol would do the frailness. Uot the fates were sislnat him. As he Jampid off his aim mlsied and the ballet cut the rope; bo fell Into the sea, but was rescued by a passing bot, while tho water he had swallowed acted as an emetic, and, the polaon being rejected, his life was saved. ' HANGED! Cuntlnurd from flnt I'age. other fields were out. They talked of the Water loo lo capital, and were frenzied with the fluah of enthusiasm. Tun was tho tlmo for the An. archive, for the strikers were nearly all foreign era. sndtheredrlbiion was worn In tho button hole of ncsrly every striker. Over 18,r)0 of the strikers gathered on llltie Island aveuun on May 8, and Incendiary speeches were listened to with eagerness. Augutt Hples was there and harangued the crowd reckleaaly from the top of a freight-car. Ills speech was in cendiary aud directed particularly to the MoCor uleks. At lis close there was a mighty veil of "On to McUormlck'al" from ten thousand throats, and tho mob started for the big reaper works. They drove away tho single policeman therewith aatormof atones, and had battered ont all me windows In the factory when police squads oegan to arrive lu patrol wagons. There' was a hand-to-hand 0gl,t between tho mob and 100 policemen. In which two police men and six rioters were wounded. Eleven rioters were arrested. Hples meantime, having aeen the effect of hit peecD, with gleeful satisfaction got lelauroly down from the car and went lu his office. He wroto tho famous 'l(ovenge" circular noxt morning, and followed It with a naming nand-biil a follows: "Great masa-ineetlng to-night at 7. 8) o'clock at the llaymarket, Randolph street, between Des plalncs and Halsted. OckxI speakers will be present to denounoe the latest atrocious acts of tho polloe, the snooting of our fellow-workmen yesteruay afternoon. " The ArlUerZntung called upon the working men to avenge their "brethren" who had been shot down at tho Instigation of tho " capltallatlo beasts." THE DREADFUL STORY OF BLOODSHED. How the rollcemrn Died Who Fought An Breillats In Chlcnajo Htreeto. The worklngmen of Chicago were now steeped In excitement. The atmoapnero of the pro at city was pregnant with tho promlso of tronble. Kor orty -eight hours following tie simultaneous strlko of 80, 000 men and women the streets had been the scene of llttlegatherlngs of angry people. Speeches were being made on every corner, fro,m every horse-block and In every saloon. Tho speeches were pitched In a key of discord. Thospeakera were in the main born agitators, men and women born and reared In discontent, generally, like the arch-Auarchlsta, shiftless, loir mortals, little re inovoit from boaala. They fed and grew fat on agitation. MonuxKKi) orrtCKK bahiiitt and wtrE. There was a feeling of insecurity among the law abiding pooplo of Chicago and aa uneasiness whloh Increased momentarily. There wero all sorts of rumors afloat, and It was generally believed that trouble would begin and violence follow tnreats at the llaymarket meeting. Tho Chief of Pollen pre pared as best he might for trouble. Strong and stronely armed details or police wero secretly Plsred hard by the pi ado of the meeting. At 8 o'clock a large crowd had gathered In the llarmar ket In a dimly lighted place, near a number of trunks, and August Hples started tho meeting with a speech from a truck. His speech hsd been a rambling talk about the labor problem for a long time. Then suddenly he shifted. He said; " What means this dliplay of Uatllngguns, can nons, baronets, patrol wagons and clubs? What means lbs calling out of the rallltla? Is It an en tertainment for yun, gentlemen T There are S3, 000 or 00,000 famlllea In Chicago suffering starvation to-day became hnabanda and fathers are not men enough to stand up for their rights. " Loud cheers followed this speech and cries of "The lake I" and "The roper were heard from hnarae throats. Parsons followed In a rather moderate speech, and Sam Fielden made the third and last address. He was load, blatant and reckless In hit utterance. He soldi HCI1DIRKD OrrtCSn nANSEN AMD WIFE. "We who come here to address you are Socialis tic rebels to the law. Lobulation will never help you, men. When the rich man understands that It la not healthy to live among a lot of discontented workmen we shall be able to get legislation, and not before" Flelden's speech, like the others, seemed to be largely to consume time, for It Is almost an axiom that the midnight hour Is pregnant with wlokrd ness. It was 10.20 o'clock when a squad of 150 police oftlccra left a near-by station and pasaeu near and In view of the speaker. The Drat line halted opposite the wavon on which he stood. Thoy wero headed by Inspector Ilouneld and Capt. Ward. The pollco marohed into the crowd, sweep ing to the pavement and pressing It before them. A halt was ordered near Flelden's wagon, and then Capt. Ward cried: "In the name ot the Slate of Illinois I command this crowd to disperse I" TIIR OOllD'S FATAL FOHCI. Almost simultaneously with this command a spluttering spark of fire described an arch In the dense black air from the opening of an alley and over the apeakera' wagon. The flight of the ipark ended directly In the middle ot the street between the first two double columns of police. The instant tnat it struok the ground It exploded with a terrible sullen roar. It waa the bomb. It did fearful work. Twenty nine men fell to the ground, mangled and groan ing from horrible wounds. A Oatllng gun could not have cat a wider awath than did tbta awful weapon In the polloe linos. A scene of horror too terrible for description followed. To police re covered quickly. No orders were needed to Ore. In an Instant every revolver was ont and every man abet to kill. MUKDEltltD OFriCKK KKDDIN AND WIFS. The crowd seemed paralysed for a moment, bnt with pistol-shots cracking like the tatoo ot a dram and bullets slnglug In tbe air, the mob gave one wild yell and plunged Into tho darkness, running tu all directions, yelling with rage and fear. Men were knocked dowu and trampled under foot, and tbose that were nearest to the police received tbe tire of the revolvers. In thirty seconds tbe streets about the scene of the explosion were cleared, save for some sixty men who bad fallen wounded to the ground. Tbe centre of the atreet waa full of writhing, groaning men. Wounded men bad run halt a block, a block, three blocks, and then fallen uown. Others dragged themselves Into alleyways. Trails of blood leading from the battlo-rleld In all directions told of wounded Anarchists who had crawled on to their dens, desperate from the loss ot blood and deadly 'tear of arrest and vengeance from tbe polloe. The police station to which the wounded were removed looked like a veritable laughter-bouee. The excitement following this practical test of the teachings of Anarchism spread from one end of the world to the other. After some delay six men. lucludlng lielden, were arrested and Farsons vol untarily aurreudered. Schnaebele, tbe man wbo la auppoaed to havo actually thrown the bomb, escaped. SKETCHES OF THE ANARCHISTS. Only One of Them Native Horn, and He Was from lluaaacbusctti). The eventa which hae Just culminated In the execution ot the Anarchists date back for several yesrv Hut the awful tragedy by which aeven po licemen were horribly mutilated and lost their lltes and sixty prions were wounded by a bomb thrown In the midst of an Immense throng of people tho llaymarket riot occurred May 4, 1B8& For two years previous to this wholesale homi cide Michael Schwab, August Spies, A. It. Fsr sous, Samuel Fielden, George Engol, Adolph Fischer, Louli Lingg and Oscar Neebe had been conitantly undor the eye of the police. Thiy were all foreign Importation.! to America except Par. sons, wbo Is a native ot Massachusetts. August Spies, the leader ot tbe Anarchists, la a German. He came to this country when sixteen years of age, and Is now thirty-two. He has had llttlo schooling, but has always been a stuoen after his own fsahlon. At twenty be had learned and discard' d the trade of saddler and tramped for two years through the West and South, At twenty fonr ha returned to Chicago and assumed the rAle of iwlitlclan, and, as a leader of tbe Soclallits, de livered msnr speeches and built op that party so that they polled over 10,000 votes for their candi date for Mavor, Dr. Knut Schmidt. There waa no Anarchistic party then, and Spies became man ager of tho Arbeltft Ztltung, the organ of trie H iclallsts, which had a large circulation snd grest Influence with the worklngmen. Hples gradually moulded the paper Into an Anarchistic aheet after tbe atyle of IUrr Moat's frelhftt. Most and Spies were bosom friends and composed a mutual admiration society. The rOcfferZettunj; printed Moat's Instructions as to how to make dyna mite bombs, and advised tbe -'tolling masses" to arm themselvos agalcit their enemies, the "wage-slave drivers " and to "spare no one; nor wife uor child In the great struggle for freedom," which waa about to occur. This course destroyed the Influence and decimated tne circulation of the Eaper, but brought many converts to the Anarch tic Idea and bore Its legitimate fruit lu the Hey. market tragedy. Bidcs's hstred of the police was Intensified or tho killing of his good-for-nothing younger brother, William Hples, by a policeman In ltm. William was a leader In a dght two months before his death lu wnlch a farmer near Chicago was killed, but Bplea was acquitted of the crime. He was shot while resisting arrest and August vowed vengeance upon the police. The outcome Is now a historic blot on the hlstorr ot Chicago. Spies of late years his managed to dress well, lie la an expert shot with the pistol, bnt Is so big a coward that he almost faints at tho sight of blood. He was a single men, unlets bis proxy rasrrlage to Nina Van Zandt counts. Parsons is fony-ave years old. He edited a paper cslled the fiirm at one lime. In it he gave olreo tloua for the manufacture of explosives and bow to throw bombs, aud advocated the destruction of society. He was at one time a scout In Texas and It a "dead shot." He has never overburdened himself with .work, but Is a born agitator. Ills wife is qnlte as ardent In anarchism, aad has ad dressed audiences In this city within aear in be half of the condemned Anarchists of Chicago, bus has negro or Indian blood In her veins. Hho Is a good speaker, Is an earnest denunciator ot soci ety and makes vague appeuls to arma. Hsm Fielden waa a native of Lincolnshire, Eng land, (orty years old. He worked In a cotton mill from his ninth year till he reached his majority. He Joined trio WeMoynn Metnodlal Kpisropa Church, and was a Monday-school superintendent at eighteen and atteovanli a preacher. Hecamo to America In W0, lived three yeara In Cleveland, aud since 1BW In Chicago. Fteldon was the bright est of the Anarohlets and had a woebegone little wife,: who anffered terribly dnrlng the strain of tho paat month. Oe-jrge Kngei waa born in Caiacl, Hcsie, In 1809, snd came to America In 1872. He naaalwaya been a Socialist of tho violent typo and was business manager of the ArMtei-Zetttug. Mlohsel Schwab was a native of Uavarla, thirty four yeara of age. Ho waa fairly well educated, and learned tho bookblnJer's trade In Germany, tiocomlng a German Socialist In lHou. He indicted hlmaolf on America In 1S7, living avear or two at Milwaukee and since at Chicago, whero he, too, wss a writer on tne Artieiter-'eUung. Adolpn Fischer, twenty-nine years old, has lUcd In America ufleen years. Ho was a printer on XIm Arbrtter-ZeUung. Ho Is married and has two children. Oscar Noebe Is also a German. Ho Is now serv ing a fifteen-years' sentence In tne penitentiary for his connection with the llaymarket not. Louis Llugg, iho dynamiter, paramount of all, wbo fittingly ended his life with a fulminating dy namite cap yesterday, was the youngest member of tho fraternity. He waa only S3 years of age. He wis born In Iladen, Germany, whero he re ceived a common school education. Ho camo to America three years ago, and has been Identified with the Anarchists ever since. He la thought to have been insane. THE TRIAL AND CONVICTION. livery Kflbrt Miide to Obstruct the the Fro eesa ot tbe Law, The trial of Anguat Spies, A. It Parsons, Michael Schwab, Samuel Fielden, George Kngel, Louis Ltngg and Adolph Fischer was commenced before Judge Gary In tbe Criminal Court of Chicago, June 1, 1886, and tbe work of selecting a Jnry consumed fonr weeks. Tbo Jury was sworn July 18, and on July 80 the prosecution rested. It took tho defense till Ang. 10 to get In their testimony, and the closing addresses and tbe charge ot Judge Oary were not completed till Ang. 19, when tbe case was given to tho Jury. They retnrned a ver dict ot murder In the drat degree against all tbe men tbe next day, and Judge Gary Imposed the death sentenee upon them Saturday, Oct. 9, the time between having been consumed by argnment on a motion of the counsel for a new trial for tbe prisoners and tbe remarkable speeches of the men In reply to the question, "What have yon to say why tho sentence of death should not be pro nounced against you T" Soles read a manuscript oharglng that the Jnry had been organized to con via; that the principal witnesses for tbo prosecution, Malvern M. Thomp son and Gilmer, were the accomplices of the State Attorney aud Inspector Vonfleld, who were g illty of a conspiracy to oommlt murder. He delended Socialism and shrieked: "Ishsll die proudly, defiantly, for the cause of Justice. Thero Is Bocratcs, there li Gallloo, there la Christ the number cannot be estimated of those who have trodden In these paths, ana we are ready to follow them. " Schwab, Neebo and Fischer made similar addresses. In spite of the caution of Mr. Solomon, one of their attorneys, Schwab admitted his connection with the "Itevenge" circular, call ing the llaymarket meeting; At the conclnilon of a fierce speech Llngg said i " I dlo willingly on the gallows with the same contempt that I have for your laws. " The Anarchists had depended on the belief that no legal llaullliy would attach to anybody who did not actually handle the murderous Instrument. Great was their consternation when Judge Gary ruled that all who were connected In acta con sclouaVy and designedly leading to tho killing were alike guilty of murder. It waa for tbo Jury to de cide whether the act of the accused led up natu rally and by design to violence and tho murders, Tbe secret preparation of bombs, tbe mutual ex hortations to kill the police, and the chain of con spiracy, from the midnight meetings of tbe assas sins dowu to the tragedy in tbe llaymarket square, were brought to ligoi, and It was made clear that If snob, acts could be committed and no one pun ished exoept tbe person who aotually did tbe kill ing the mere tool In the hands of the conspirators then society would be at tbe mercy of the dlicl pies of Uerr Jobann Most. ALL ArmAL WAS VAIN. Leonard Swett, Capt, W. P. Black and Slgmund Zelaler, counsel for the Anarchists, argued for a teveraal of Judgment and a new trial before the Hupreme Court of Illinois at Ottawa, Msrch IT and It) last, George Ingham, Attornoy-Gensral Hunt and btate Attorney Urlnnell opposing for tne State. Three printed volumes of argument were also sub mitted. On Sept. 14 tne Supreme Court affirmed the declilon of the lower Court and ordered the execution ot the men, Nov. 11. iho Court held that peaceful aiaemblage was always lawful, but that tbeae men had been clearly proven to be lead, era of the " lted Flag;" that they were all present at the llaymarket meeting, and thai that, like tbe other Communlatlo meetings led by them, had not been lawful. on Oit HI ilen. Itogcr A. Prior, wbo had been enlisted on behalf of the condemned men, made an application to the United States Supreme Conn for writs ot error, relying on polnta Involving Federal questions which would give thl, court Jurisdiction lu the cases.

" LAST NI0HT IN TOE JAIL. What Wa none and How tho Condemned Dion Pnaerd Their Time. (incur, to Tnx kvxkixo would. 1 Chicago, Nov. 11. The last death watch on the prisoners began at 8.10 last night. Two guards sat In front of each cell, looking directly Into It all tho tlmo, and never taking their eyes off the prisoners. Parsons seemed to bo easier In mind than any of tho others He paced to and fro smoking a cigar as calmly as If he had the opportunity of combin ing a hundred boxrs. Kx-Slierlff Hanchett came Into the Jail about 9 o'clock, and alter looking through the cells held a short conference with Sheriff Matson. The dis cussion was in regard to the details of the execu tion, but Its result waa kept secret. ' Uy 10 o'clock last night everything had qulotod down in Jail. From tho great cell-house nothing could be heard except the occasional cough of a man, the sound of a prisoner's moan or groan In his sleep and the rattling of the heavy keys In the lock, wielded by Charles Gross, tho strongest and biggest deputy on Sheriff Mat son's force. The keva rattled oiten, too, and every time the harsh, grating nolae vent with a rebounding echo through tbe vast building. The frequent clanglnga of the heavy grated door leading to the cage were caused by tbe numerous changes made In the death watches and the requirements of depu ties aud carpenters employed upon the ghastly work of completing tho gadows. Setb Uauchett,the ex-Shcrlff, supervised the putting of the machinery of death, running to and fro between "death's corner " in the northeaat comer of the Jail and the Jailor's private omco where Mataon held forth. The great good-hearted Sheriff was visibly moved, though he tried very hard to appear calm and col lected. NO MOKE FAREWELLS. "Will the relatives of the doomed men be ad mitted to say farewell before the execution?" ho was asked". "Oh," was the weary reply; "I think they said good-by this evening. It would befto no pur pone to repeat the sad scene nnnecciBarlly. " Mrs. Parsons stood In tbe outer ball of the Crim inal Court building, the verr picture of dlsconsola tiou and despair. She did not attempt to get ad mission for a look at her husband and naturally she waa not Invited. After standing around for ten minutes between the police officers and the guards she left, having spoken no word to any ono. Her every movo waa watched with argua ryes by the officers, who knew tho determined and desperate character of tho woman. Sho was silent ly shadowed when she left the building, disappear ing In the direction of Charles street. In the outer Jail omco there waa a scene of rest lets activity. A full score of reporters were squat ting In every conceivable position on tbe chairs, tho Door, and even on the scales, reducing tho observations on the doings of the doomed men to more or less graphic accounts. All the old - time deputies Cleveland, Kllday, Hubbard, Gleason, Morgan, lltldeurand aud othera were on hand and beguiled time by relating Incidents of former executions In Cook County. Occasionally a laugh would be raised at somo ludicrous episode, but It quickly died away In tbe sombre surroundings. Angnat Spies waa the first one to retire. He threw himself upon his couch at 10.80, clad In tho flannel shirt which be has worn of late and a pair of trousers. He turned his face to the wall, io that bis features could not bo ob served by the guards. Up to midnight dhe never move. but the Irregular movements of his cbeat Indicated that he did not sleep. What bis thoughts may have been after that tearful part ing from his aged and grief-stricken mother and his passionate, unwedded bride, are conjectural. TALXINO UNTIL atlDNIOnT. Parsons, Engel and Fisher brought their chairs close to the grated doors of their cells and chatted with their guards. At mldmuht tney bad not yet retired. What they said nobody but the men tuey talked with know, because the death Hue for everyone but officials was drawn at the door leading to the oage. An exception was made In tbe case ot Lieut. -Gov. Smith, who came In shortly before 11 o'clock. This dignitary was accompanied by Gen. Fltzslm mons. Commander of the First Brigade: Lleut. Col, Thomas Clarke, Inspector of Hide Praotlce; Lieut, -Col. Buchanan, commissary; Llem-Col. Potter, Quartermaster, and Lieut. Lovejoy, Aide-de-camp, tho latter lour of Gen. Fltzslmmons's starr. "simply looking over the ground. There Is nothing else to say," was the General's reply, given with military briefness and promptness, when he was asked as to the purpose of tbe night visit. The affable gentleman and brave old soldier was In citizens clothes like his retinue, but hla short stylo of answers mado it apparent to those who knew that he meant business. Lieut. -Gov. Smith wss equally uncommunica tive, and It was, of course, uaeleas to ask the o ra cers ranking nnder the commsnder of the brigade. Incidentals It was learned that both regiments ot infantry, as well aa Major Tobey'a battery, will be at their respective armories with daybreak, ready for action. Lieut. -Gov. Smith has fnll power to act delegated to him by Gov. Oglesby for this occasion. Dnrlng the night Kngel was cheerful and con tented, and at times even witty. When Sheriff Matson told him of the Governor's decision he merely said: "I did not expect more. I am satisfied and I will go to the gallows as fear lessly aa I have been In tbe habit of going to be hung. " Flelden's Ilecord In Pittsburg. SPECIAL TO TBC KTZNIKO WORLD.) Pittsboro, Nov. 11. Much Indignation Is felt here ovor the commutation ot Fielden's death sen tence. In February, 1888, he attempted to work up an Anaichlstlc revolt In the city. On Washing ton's Birthday a meeting of Anarchists was held In a Pennsylvania avenue saloon to listen to Geisuch and Fielden. They made an Inflammatory harangue. Fielden waa asked If he would use dynamite and he replted In the following words: ' We will not hesitate to use anything when the time arrlvea. A revolution Is near al hand. It roust oome. We want to abolish the present system of government. Some one must suffer in every reform. Lives must be sacri ficed. I am In favor of the quickest means for tne accomplishment of our purpose." At this meeting ten Anarchist groups were organized, but there are not now twenty Anarchists In the city. A NEW PLAY AT THE MADISON SQUARE. A. M. Palmer's admirable company presented ' Tbe Martyr " to a large audlenoe at the Madi son Square) Theatre last night, and If the play Is not exactly of the son that the patrons of the cosy little home expect to find, It Is certainly worth seeing. As before stated two other versions ot "Tbe Martyr " have been seen In this city, bnt In both cases a star has been coniplcuous and tbe rest of the company hopelessly stupid. "Tbe Mar tyr " Is extremely emotional, bnt the emotion Is all wrong. It ought not to be there, It oonld easily be prevented, and consequently sympathy cannot be indiscriminately given to Mme. de Moray. This lady discovers that her mother has an llllgltl mate son, by the visit of that young man, who de mands money for silence. The brother and sister are seen together and the husband oh I ldlotlo theatrical hueband becomes Jealous. Then Mme. de Moray, rather than ssy who her visitor really Is, asserts that be la her lover. The husband and wife separate. There Is plenty of misery and desolation, and the martyr oannot complain that she has done badly from the stand point of wretchedness. No one can thoroughly sympathize with this woman. The world Is miser able enough. Tsere Is no need for Mme. de Moray to make It worse, when a few words spoken to her husband, whose confidence she could com mand, would have set things right, Mrs. Agnes Booth was Mme. de Moray, and she did all she could for the misguided woman.

Straggles ot a Young married Coople to Keep tho Wolf from the Door. IFrom ra MUieavkte BntlnU 1 There lsayonng married couple in Milwaukee who have fonnd It up-blll work to get along In the world. They came here two or threo months ago to find work, having been married but a few days. The parents of both aro well-to-do people and It was no runaway match, for two pairs of paternal hands were laid on their beads In bidding when they plighted their troth. In tact, the yonng Bene dict's father manlfeated his good will by giving him II, 000 In cold cash, and told him to buy a farm with It. The noxt Sunday yiey took a buggy ride, and when they stepped out from tbe vehicle the young man fonnd that he bad lost his money. A distracted search was made, but the person who had picked up the purse hadn't taken the tronble to advertise the fact very extensively. Not daring to tell his father that he had lost the mon-y, the young man agreed with his wife that they should go as far away aa the money they had would take them and try to earn the money back before returning home. They found they had Juat money enough to take them to Milwaukee, and on they tame. When tbey had been hero a week they found that making a living In a hard, cruel world was not like lying down on a feather bed and having the old folks tako care of you. Tho boarding-house keeper threatened to fire them out bodily if they didn't pay up; they hadn't money enough to take a street car ride, and no prospect of getting any. Tney need the medium of the ' ' want " column to tell an Inquiring public that a man and his wife wanted a position together, the one as cook or domestic, tne other ss gardener or hostler or utility man about the bouse. It happened that Juit such a couple was wanted about that lime at the Mltohell farm la the town of Greenfield. It turned out that the man would answer very well, but the yonng wife proved to be a very bad cook. "Can yon bake bread?" she wss asked. She sadly said she couldn't. Other questions ellolied tbe faot tbat she didn't know enough about cooking to boll eggs, and so, of course, there was no Job for her st the farm. Determined to live or starve together, the husband threw up his Job too. it became necessary for the couple to change boarding houaes, and in this operation they loft their trunks behind. When finally things looked pretty desperate for them, they decided that per haps, after all, they could not get places Jointly, and the girl accepted a situation In a west side family as second girl. The husband made up his mind that he couldn't get a Job In Milwaukee and determined to go to Oankosh. He had no money, and so one fine morning he started on foot for the home of the baseball champions. When he came to the stockyards. Just beyond the city limits, he was gratified to find that he could get a place there, and he went to work at once. He works thereyet and his wife Is now employed In a laundry. The curious feature of tbe affair is tbat through all their trouble they havo never fal tered In their resolution never to write boms nntll tney have earned f 1,000 and can go back to the old folks with It.

Comptroller Loow told The Eveniwq) World reporter that he favored tho Sunday opening. Mr. Johnston, President of tho Metropolitan Museum, who has for years been intimately associated with it, is in rather dehcato health. Ho did not core to talk upon tho subject. It is woll known, however, that ho has always been oppoced to opening tho Museum on Sunday. Mr. Huntington, President of tho National Academy, talked on tho subject with tho reporter. " 1 am opposod to it," he said. " I think Sunday should be devoted to religious purposes. It is hard enough to get people to church without supplying attractions which will help to draw them away from it. The argument that Sunday is the only time poor people can visit the Musoum would be met If tho galleries wero thrown open two evenings in the week free. The electno light would turaish all tho illumination necessary. There has been, and is, talk of doing this." " What are tho grounds on which tho trus tees baso their opposition to tho Sunday opening?" was asked. "Thoy are different with tho different ones," replied Mr. Huntington. " With sev eral a religious feeling is the fundamental one. Others opposo tho opening on the ground of expediency. Thoy think that it might deprive the Museum of donations, or that some of the trustees would withdraw if this were done. Some aro moved a little by tho extra expense. Those who nro opposed from some reason of expediency would doubtless desiro it if they foresaw no un. pleasant consequences." " Have any bequests been made with tho proviso that the Museum shall not be open on Sunday ?" " I believe that Robert L. Stuart and his brother Alexander left two or threo thousands with that condition. There are, however, some large bequests which might bo affected by the Sunday opening, and posBiblythat has been of weight with somo. Then there is so strong n prejudice against it with some of the trustees that ii it were carried they might withdraw. ' ' These, you see, are motives of expediency, and so long as tho trustees havo to see to get ting the money to keep tho Musoum running thoy have a perfect right to look to their sources of revenue. But my own opposition to it is. on religious grounds. I bave tho feeling, perhaps due to early education, that Sunday should be set aside to tho Lord. It is his day, and ono should not take it for himself. "The time will come, however, without doubt, when the Museum will bo opened. I think that tho theatres and concert-holla and all placeB of amusement will be In full ' swing in New York on Sundays. That is the drift: things are tending that way, and ' people look on tho Sunday as a day for amusement only. However, if it wore car ried by a majority of votes, I should say nothing. It is seldom that there is a full meeting of tho Board. The best way would he to write to each member and simply ask him if he was in favor or was opposed to opening the Museum on Sundays." Mr. Herain Hitchcock, of the Fifth Avenue) Hotel, declined to speak on the subject. "When we havo brought the matter to a conclusion," said ho, " it will be time enough to let the publio know. I don't think it ad visable to speak about tho subject till then." TALK OF THE DAY IN SOCIETY. Un. L. P. Morton and her Ave daughters, will sail to-morrow for Kurope.
