At thu Standard Theatro Bice and Dlxcy's comic opci a company will bogm the last week of their engagement Monday night.in "Tho Pearl of Pekiu." Tho success of this (.hlnoo opeia has been remarkable. When it was first pio duced at tho Bijou the reception was somewhat tepid, but at the present tmio it attracts laigo audiences. Louis HarriBou does rotuo clever work. 'adiv,"Chassaigne's operetta, is doing ex rellont business at tho Casino and the music is becoming extremely popular.

Mr. Sothern will undoubt edly appeal pleasantly to the Harlcmites. Ilaitigan still appears in the dual roloof Undo Pete and the giddy Now York Alderman at the Park Theatre, where ho is drawing large audi ences. The revival of this successful play was,per haps lucky, as Harrigan's friends, while they ad mired his pluck in presenting "The Lorgairo," evidently prefer him in the style of pieco that ho has popularised. At tho Eden Muse's the troupe of Terpsl chorean Bussians still appear twice each day. The elaborate costumes, the interesting faces and the queer muBlc and dancing of these men and women continue to prove satisfactory to the management, who look lo tho boi.oIHco for sat isfaction. Tho gypsy band, conducted by Erdelyi Naczi, gives tho usual concerts. "Baby Bunting," at Worth's Museum, in East Fourteenth street, is certainly worth aee. ing. The children have been particularly in terested in this "cute" littlo horse. Then there is " Princess Lucy," aged twenty years, weight twenty-one pounds, who must not bo forgotten, although she is so small. The Ossified Man, Mr. Bass, is still at the museum.

One of their raoit bested debates Utnterrnpted by the sppemranoa of a man, who, after announoinr mi namo to be Robur, en dearors by most logtoat arenments to oonfinoe them of the fallaer of their theories. Ills sarcasm Infuriates tbe members, and they are about to ojeot tho stranger, when he disappears In the oonfuilon. Uncle Prudent and Phil K?ans, the President and Seoretarr of the Olub, are walking home, excitedly discussing the erents of the reninr, when ther are seised and bound by unknown men, an d are npirited away, together with Prudent's ralet, FrTcoUin, who had followed his master. Their disappearance ausee great excitement oter the country, and the polio are nonplussed. CHAPTER VI. , THE ABDUCT ED BALL00NIBT8 FIND THEMSELVES IN AN AMAZINO SITUATlOrr. It is impossible to coujecture Frycolin's thoughts as ho lay there, g&BRed and blind folded. He soeraed more dead than alive. For an hour the situation of the prisoners remained unchanged. No one appeared to Rive them that liborty ot movement and speech of which they were so much in need. They were reduced to stifled sishs and mut tered oaths, forced through the gags in their "Kroths, and at intervals they struggled frantically in their efforts to loose the cords which bound them. After n few ineffectual attempts they lapsed into a nuitt state. Sinco they were doprived of the seme of sight, Jhey were tryinr; with tbe aid of the sonso of hearing to gain some knowledge of thoir bur Krondiugs. But it was all useless, aa thoy could hear nothing but the continual and inexplicable whirr which seemed to vibrate in the very air around them. At last something happened. Phil Evans nsd been quietly and calmly working nt tho rds which bound his wrists. Little by lit. we tbe knot stretched, and gliding his fingers out, one after another, ho at last obtained the freedom of his hands. A vigorous robbing restored tho circu'a. tion, which had been obslructod by the ord, and the next moment Phil Evans had raised the bandage from his eyes, torn out the gag, and out with his bowie-knife the rds which bound his feet An American ho did not possess a bowie-knife as a ntak. Phil Evans had only gained the power of moving and speaking. That was all. Un yes were too weak from the Ions confine, meat to be of any sen Ice to Mm, even in the huf btcurity of the cell around him. The Mngleray of light came through a sort of loophole ?ut about seven or eight feet up the wall. Phil Evans instantly applied himself to the liberating of his rival. A few strokes of the bowie-knife sufficed to cut the cords which bound the enraged Uncle Prudent, who, as soon as he had reached bis feet and torn off (he bandage and gag, said in a half-strangled voice : " Thanks I" " Not at all," replied his oolleague. "Phil Evans?" "Uncle Prudent?" " Let us have here neither president nor seoretary of tho Weldon Club." " You are right," replied Phil Evans. " Here are only two men seeling to avenge themselves on a third, who shall be severely punished. And this third " "IsKobur!" "Isltoburl" At last I Here was a subject on which tbe two ex-disputants could agree. On this sub ject there was no fear of argument "And your valet," observed Phil Evans, pointing to Frycollin, who was Bnorttng like a walrus, " shall I release him ?" ' Not yot, replied Uncle Prudent. " Ho will on y smother us with his cries, and we have soipetbing else to attend to at present," "And that is ?' ' To fae ourselves, if it is possible" " And even if it is impossible." " You aro right, Phil Evans, even if it is impossible." The president and his colleague had not doubted for a moment that thoir capture had been the work of the strange man who called himself Itohur. Simple and honest thieves would have first relieved them of their watches, jowelry and pooket-books, and then have cut their throats and thrown them over the bridge into the Bohuylkltl below. In stead of this, their property had beou undis. turbed, and they were imprisoned in what? A grave question, that was necessary to be solved, before their preparatioiu for escape J5555EiSiB TIIE WORLD; SATURDAY EVENING, FERRUARY 10, 1689. 8 fl In tho Cnrlo Ilall are Nellie Owens, with hair eight feet long: the great Dobson, Jamos Carr, Hlg. 1.

Doris sas ho considers Iloyt the most successful man of (lie day, and alnavs intends to gic his patrons good entertainments. The regular hourly shows will bo gl on by tho Williams and Howard Comedy Company. .The management of that permanent attrac tion, "The Battle of OetMsbnrg." have derided to reduce the admission this Hunday to Sfi cents. Ibis realistic rnrtsentatlon of the greatest battle of the war has bcon visited during tho year by 4UU.000 persons, and the constantly increasing attendant? n'ould seem to indicate that thocyclorama is ono of tho permanent at tractions of tho city.

Tony Pastor's pleasant littlo theatre will end an extremely successful week with a "gala" bill to-night. Kemell's excellent company will appear in a varied and interesting programme. Mr. Kernell is wonderfully popular, and people have been turned away from Tony Pastor's during the week. Kernell will go to Newark next week and then directly to Han Francisco. Acnmprehonsivo Hat of features is announced at Tony l'attor's for next week. Thercgulsr patrons of the theatre hardly ti nuble to read the Iit. They know that they will bo well taken care of. Ilroolilyii Tlirntres. Fresh from their recont triumph in New York City, Halleu and Hart will present thrlr fatee comedy, "Later On," at the Orand Opera Houso during tho coming week. "Later On" is tho most recent product of tho industrious pen of II. Orattau Donnelly, and satirizes the lacing craye, which prevails to such an extent in this country. Hallcn and Halt won an enviable leputation on tho vauiUuillo stage, and bid fuir to mole than repeat their former succcs in the new Held in which they are making n bid for populai approval. The musical selections, which form a pioniiuent featuio of tho entertainment, uru foi the most part lion. Hilda Thomas, the popular vocalist, is a member of tho company. Tho foremost prestidiftltateurofmodorn times, the great Uirrmanti,will bo at tho Park Thoatro next week with a host of novelties. Hcriinniiu villi give Ills great specialty, " Cicmation," for the llrst time in Brooklyn. This act consists of the incineiatio'i of an apparent human body in full view of the audience. The bodv is plated in a casket wrapped in a spotless sheet, which Is set on tire. Tho body is reduced tn ashes, and the soul is seen winging its way heavenward, to the apparent discomfiture of His Hatanic Majesty, who sppears at this Juncture Herrmann will be aisistcd by Mmo. Herrmann, D'Alviniandlluka Agha. Hteelo MacKnyes thrilling drama, Paul Kauv ar, " will be give n its flrt Fastern District presentation next week, when It will be seen at the Amphion Academy. " Paul Kauv ar" deals with scenes and incidents of tho 1'iench Revolu tion, and po"sesses a story of Intcnso interest. All the horrors of the guillotine, and tho fury of the Anarchist mob aie truthfully pictmod in the tableaux of tho dream of Paul Kauvar. Joseph Howarth will sustain tho leading lAlp, and Miss Cairie Turner has wou a complete triumph in the rolo of Diane. An ever welcome visitor to Brooklyn is Maggie Mitchell, and her advent at the Leo Avenue Academy next week in her new play, "Bay," will no doubt be the occasion of crowded houses of enthusiastic friends. "Bay" was produced for the first time in New York City last week and met with mnch success. In tact, so great was the favor with which it was received that Miss Mitcholl decided to add it permanently to her repertoire. Miss Mitchell will present " Bay " Monday. Tuesday. Wednesday, Friday and Hat urday nights; 1 auction," Thursday evening and at the apecial niatinc'o Washington's Birth day. In compliance with the lequest of nu merous admirers "Little Barefoot" will be given at the Haturday matinee. The performance of "Boccaccio" at the Brooklyn Academy of Mnsic next week will be a pcrfeot reproduction of the costuming, stage setting and arrangement of the cast that marke d tho engagement at Palmer a Theatre some weeks could be attended with any chance of success. "Phil Evans," siid Uncle Prudont, "it would have been much better for us had wo given our attention to tho neighborhood into which wo wero wandering and less to tbo exchange of useless arguments. If wo had rcmainod in the Btreets of Philadelphia this thing would not havo happened. This'Bobur was evidently aware of 'what was transpiring at tho club, and foresaw the disturbance that his antagonistic attitude raisod, nnd to pro tect himself ho very properly placed sovernl of his bandits within call. When we left. Walnut stroet theso scoundrels followed us, and when wo imprudently lost ourselves in the depths of I'a.rmouut Park we wore at their mercy." ,l Of course," replied Phil Evans. "Yes; we should have gone directly to our homes." ' ' We all can generally tell what we should havo done after tbe mattor is all over," an swered Uncle Prudent. At this moment a long sigh came from the darkest corner of the cell. "What was that?" askod Phil Evans. "Nothing, only Frycollin drearaingi" And Uncle Prudent continued: "Between HIS KNIFE MADE NO IMrilEBSlON ON THE WAT.T- tho mpment wo were seized, a few steps from tbo clearing, and tho time we wore thrown into the cell there was cn'.y a sp a o of about two minutes' time. It is, thcieforo, evident that we uro still in Tairmount Park," " And if the cell had been mo cd w e would certainly have felt it," said tho secretary. " Of course," leplied Undo Prudent. " We are doubtless imprisoned in a compart ment of a large wagon or some other vehicle, and, as we have felt no movement, wo must still be in the clearing. Now is the timo for us to make our escape and seek this llobur later." " He shall pay very deatly for this attack on the liberty of two American citizens." " Very dearly I" " But who is this man? From what coun try does he come ? la he an Englishman, a German or a Frenchman ?" "He is a wretch, and that U sufficient," i ago. De Wolfl Hopper, Digby Bell and Jeff doAngclls will be seen in their original parts. Laura Moore and Marion Manola will sustain leading roles, and pretty little Annie Mvrrs will have a pait cntllelv "lilted to her abilities. Next week at Jacobs's Brooklyn Theatre will maik the advent of Miss Charlotte Thompson, who has not bom seen in Brooklin for the past three Mars. Miss Thompson will present "Jane I'.yrr." Hhc is a iiinsrlentlons.paiiistak. ing arti.t, who has alwavi, been regarded as one of the best of emotional artresses. Her work in " Jane r.yro"i a tlnlshid bit of char acter acting, full or ttvlirntp touches. Hnndav evening a sacred conceit will lie given, for the benefit of the Keimeshaw Bducatioiial l'uud. by the Original Jubilee tiiugcis. A play that appeals directly to the heart of the auditor because of the lnt"iio human Interest of its atorv is Bui tlev Campbell's "White Klavp." which Is down for next wei k at Proctor's Brook lyn Thcatie. Thooppoitnmtj for scenic display Is great, and MAiisgor linns Krtmrdv has taken advantage of it In a genciouswav by sunph ing a number of handsome set", painted b) well known artists. A most realistic rainstorm is in. trodiiccd. In tho cast aro a number of motio politan favoriti s. Another double bill is down for next week at Holmes's Museum, where tho popular character actor, Marlnud Clarke, will bosrui. Mr. Claike will produce " Jekyll and Hyde "with spectacu lar effects, and "Jack the Hipper " will also he revived, with all that was objectionable In its re cent production eliminated. A company of specialists has been engaged to appear in the Street Merries of London," wherein tho lilte chapel disti iet is depleted. T hrCsecuerv for this was painted from photographs and is said to ho a correct leprodurtlnn of the now fatuous local ity. In Curio Hall a number of staitling novel ties will be on exhibition. It was a gala night at Zipp's Casino last even ing. The crowd within the doors was certainly the largest of the acason, both in point of en thusiasm and In numbers. Every one had a copy of The Evknino Wntit.n containing the song "I'maChappio from Over the Wattah. " When Miss Hchult mado hoi appeal ancc, clad as a tpical "chappie" sho was tinilerml a positive ovation. The song was encored to tho echo.and at the conclusion a handsome floral pieco from the vviiters of tho song was handed ovei the footlights, for which Miss Hchlllt gracefully bowed her ackn iwledgmcnta.

" Where does this cearelcss vibration come from?" said l'hil Evans, surprised at the continued whirr which still sounded about them. " It is probably tho wind," answerod Undo Prudent. , " The wind ? Up to midnight it seemed to mc that the night wa perfectly ca'm." " Possibly so, Phil Evans. Jiut if it is not the wind, what then is it?" Phil Evans having opened tho best blade of his knife tried to cut n holo in the wall near the door in the hope of making nn open ing large enough to allow the opening of the door from the outside, if it was closed with a bolt, or if the key had been left in the lock. Sorno minutes' hard work resulted in tho breaking of tho blado of the knife. ' ' This is of no use, Phil Evnns. " "No." "Can we bo in a sheet-iron cell?" "No, Uncle Prudent.

In tho moan time Frycollin was beginning to givo unmistakable signs of illness. Whether he had cranes in tho stomach or cramps in the limbs, ho was struggling in n painful manner. Uncle Prudent thought it wise to put an end to theso gymnastic i xor. cisos by cutting the cord which bound tho negro. Hut he soon repented his folly. The valot'a release was attended vwth an interminable litany, in which tho agony of fright was mingled with tho pangs of hitngor. Frycol. lin's brain was us weik aR his stomnoh was Btrong, and it is hard to toll which of the two organs was now sulToring tho most, " Frycollin!" criod Unolo Trudent. " Master Undo! Master Uncle!" responded the negro, between two lugubrious wails. " It is rossible thnt we aro condemned to die of hnnger in this prison. But wo havo resolved not to sucenmb until we have ex hausted overy menus of alimentation capable of sustaining lifo." "What-oat mo !" cried tho terrifiod valet. " What else would ono da with a negro in such a cose?" Frycollin began to seriously believe that ho was to be omploj ed in prolonging tho lifo of the secretary and tbo president, and tho agony of torror which tho thought throw him into was painful. Timo passed by nnd all attempts to force the door or wall wero futile. It was impossible to recognize tho composition of the wall. It wns noither metal, wood nor stone. Tho floor of tho room was composed of tho snmo straugo sub. Etauce as tlio walls, nnd when struck gavo out a sound which Uncle FruJent wos unablo to class in tho list of known sounds. An other strange fact this floor sounded hollow, as If it was not rcbtiug on the soil of the clearing, and tho inexplicable whir sounded as strong underneath as it did above and around them. Those things wero certainly not reassuring. " Uncle l'rudont !" said Phil Evans. "Fhil Evans!" ' ' Do you think that our prison hna been moved f" "By no means." " Nevertheless, for a little whilo after our incarceration in this cell I was able to detect the fresh odor of plants and tho rosinous pcrf umo of the trees in tho park. Now.when I iutmlo the air it seems to mo that all theso odors have disappeared." "Indeed!" " How do you explain this fact?" " We cannot explain It at all, Thll Evans, unless by supposing that our pii'on has changed place, and I repeat that if such bad been the case we would have felt tbe move ment." Frycollin uttered a long groan, which would have been taken for hit last breath if A3IUSISMKNTS. AMUSEMENTS. Ml join's wxiy to. 'l WxbV I MUSEUM gi 8&&nS& II between r vms (yAlil iCtej 1 BCTCA?

" I hope that this Ileihur will noon put an end to our conjectures by havinc us brought before him," said Phil Evans. " I hopo bo too, " returned Unolo rrudent, and I will tell him-" " What ?" " That aftor havinc commenced like a fool he has finished like n knave." At this tnomont Phil Lvans noticed that day was beginning to break. A light, Btill vagrue, was beginning to struggle through the nar row window cut in the wall opposite tho door. It must bo about four in thu morning, since that is thu hour during the month of Juno when the horizon of Philadelphia 18 wK.enod by tho first rays of dawn. Uncle Prudent Bounded tho repeater of his watch a chef iVveuvre from the factory of his colleague and the littlo bell struck quarter to thrco. " Strango," said rhil Evans. "At quarter to three it is still night." " My watch must be a little slow," replied Uncle Prudent. WORTH'SAsf.M(ISEUM j f, uJHE OSSIFIED MAM. j ! 1st F I (l,AMrlni Man Turned to '. WH IV bolld Hone.

Tho glass gave a S ringing sound, but did not break. A seeond ''3t blow, more violent than tho first. Same ro- S suit. W " Good! "cried Phil EvanB. " Unbreak. M able glass."

M However, it had now become light enough jS outsido to soo dimly through the glass, but M the range of sight wns limi'.ed by the small jB size of tho narrow window. . ;j What do you see?" asked Uncle Pro. sH dent.

H "A watch of the Walton Watch Company? Nevorl" orled the secretary. Hut bo this as it may, day was certainly breoking, ond the obscurity of the room was lightening. "Now thnt it is nearly day outside, wo might le able- to gain some cluo to our situa. tion through the window there," said Phil Evans. " We can try," said Uncle Prudent, and turning to Frycollin i "Come, Fry, got up." The negro raised himself. "Put your back against that wall," con tinued Uncle Prudent, "and you, Phil Evans, mount on his shoulder and see if you can throw any light on th.a mystery " "Willingly," replied Phil Evans, and the next moment he bad his feet on Fryoollln's shoulders and his eye on a level with the window. The window was olosed with a sin. gle pane of ghvss.which, while not very thick, was not very clear, and obstructed the view of the secretary, whose eyesight at any time was not too good. ' ' Neither in tho clearing, nor In tbe park." M " Can you not seo at least the roofs of the S houses or the tops of monuments?" said fm Uncle Prudent, whoso disappointment and iS fury weie increasing. JH "Neither roofs nor monuments." jB "What!
