Her compliments, or -whatever they

Eestence into English, so that the full

it tras none the less overwhelming. The
color rose in Irving's pale cheeks, and

they conversed apart for some minutes,

JR a stape box, leaning forward; a book
of the play before him; his hand to his
ear; his biasing eyes fixed mostly on the
tragedienne, for he needed the book oniy
on account of his deafness; and when it
was over going behind the scenes to
offer his homage to the artist.
But I like to think of Sarah and Irving
as having planted the first seed. It was
not known. The newspapers published
no account. If Paul planted, there was
then no Apolios to water. But it came
up as a flower if not as a tree; it had
fragrance if not strength; and it had
<^ne hears of girls who wish to go on
the stage because they think it an easy
Hfe. They might take a lesson, or sev
eral lessons, out of Sarah's life: a life
of great successes won by tremendous
efforts. The public thinks her a genius,
and these girls think that because of her
genius she may dispense with study and
the drudgery of the profession. Sarah
herself never thought that. I will offer
these ambitious young ladies one ex
ample of her method.
When "La Tosca" was produced In
Paris at the Porte St. Martin I saw it the
first night. During- the second entr'
acte I went to Sarah's dressing room to
pay the compliment one is expected to
pay in Paris if one knows the actress.
She was playing, we all thought, her
best. The success was brilliant, the ap
dlmk unstinted. Needless to say, that
no? French author, and certainly not
Sardou, would allow his piece to be. pro
duced until he was satisfied with the re
hearsals. Still less, perhaps, would any
actress of Sarah's position come before
the footlights until her own conception
and composition of a new part were to
her mind, and until the ensemble was
complete. In fact, these things are
taken for granted. The French critic"
is inexorable; the French audience not
less so. and a play not perfectly re
hearsed would get scant mercy from
either critic or audience.
The next morning I left for Italy, was
gone six -weeks, and on returning to
Paris went again to see "La Tosca," and
again between the acts went around to
pee Sarah. I said:
"You are in great form to-night. It is
much better than it was on the first
There came into the face, and es
pecially into the eyes, of the actress one
of those challenging looks one saw there
when she was in a warlike mood. The
blue of the eyes, sometimes soft, hard
ened into the famous bleu d'aHer, with
points of flashing light as hard as the
steel-blue itself. I saw the storm ris
ing, but I had no idea why. She stood
silent for a second or two as if to allow
her mood to be seen; then in her most
metallic tone:
"Ah, you think I play my part better
than when you first saw it?"
"You certainly do."
"And you think it is because I am in
good form to-night?"
•Well, you certainly are in good form."
"Mercl, mon ami. But you are right
about one thing. It is better than it
was the first night, and I will tell you
why it is better. It is because I have
worked on it six hours a day for six
weeks. That is why."
My mistake had been in suggesting
that the improvement was because of
her being in good form that particular
evening. She wanted credit for her six
weeks' hard labor. She was then at
the summit of her fame. She had done
her best with her part for the first night.
She had satisfied her public, and the
press, and Sardou. "But because she had
not satisfied herself— the artist that was
in her— she toiled on. And that is the
history of Sarah Bernhardt's art life.

Ethel Worbert. the twelve-year-old girl
who was knocked down by an Eighth ave
nue streetcar a week ago and taken to St.
Vincent's Hospital, will be none the worse
for her accident, although it was feared
at the time that the consequences would be
serious. Her face even will not be scarred.
The case excited much sympathy, as the
girl had been accustomed to lead her blind
father to and from the Cristopher street
station of the Hudson tunnel, where he
stands all day and sells newspapers. Eight
years ago he was a butcher, but lost his
sight, he ssfys, through neuralgia, contract
ed by constantly going in and out of the
big refrigerators.
Ethel Worbert received $10 through The
Tribune some days ago from employee of
the firm of P. K. Wilson & Co., silk mer
chants at No. 130 Fifth avenue, and yester
day received $20 more through The Tribune.
This came from an unknown person in
Tenafly. N. J. The streetcar company
paid Mrs. Worbert $100 and three firms for
which Henry TVorbert, the father, had for
merly worked. mad§. up a purse of $120
Besides this the child received $32 from E.
G Sutherland, a newspaper man. whoee
little daughter personally collected some of
the money.
Mr. Sutherland offered to pay Ethel Wor
bert's expenses in the hospital and will
take her to his country home for a vaca
tion later on.

Church of the Redeemer Will Try
to Get Out of Harlem.
Controversy Looked for Should
Bronx Site Be Chosen for
New Home.
The vestry of the Church of the Re
deemer, in West 136 th street, has voted to
sell the property, move to some other spot
and try again to build up a flourishing
congregation. It is announced that changes
in the population of Harlem have made it
impossible for the church, which belongs
to the ritualistic class of the Protestant
Episcopal denomination, to get on longer
in its present setting.
Washington Heights or University Heights
is the choice for a new location. In Wash
ington Heights Trinity and St. Luke's have
just had a dispute over the location of a
new Chapel of the Intercession, and there
is no one familiar with the situation who
believes that the Church of the Redeemer
will be allowed to enter the field. If Uni
versity Heights is definitely .chosen it is
expected that the hue and cry against
transferring any property from Manhattan
to The Bronx will at once be raised. The
<:hance."< are, it Is said, that the Church of
the Redeemer will have to stay where it is
if it wishes to avoir* stirring up an in
tensely heated controversy.
The property is a valuable one. The
church fronts on 136 th street, a few doors
east of Seventh avenue, but its grounds
extend through to 137 th street. The build
ing is a low one of stone, "Gothic in de
sign ond well equipped. Among the promi
nent laymen connected with the parish is
Lawson Purdy. president of the Depart
ment of Taxes and Assessments.
As there are onb' a few Episcopal
churches in Harlem, excluding those on
Morningside and Washington Heights,
churchmen say there is an ample field for
the Church of the Redeemer if it would
modify its service?.
This church has had rather a checkered
career. Back in the 80's, when it was sit
uated at Park avenue and S2d street, it
was considered one of the greatest expo
nents of ritualism, and was the centre of
controversy on that account. The Rev.
Henry Austin Adams, its rector in those
stormy days, later entered the Roman
Catholic Church and as a layman became
a leader among converts from Protestant
It was said at the time that the church's
site, or the title to it, was in some way
mixed up with Tammany politics. This
was denied, but the fact remains that the
pite was lost, the parish failed for lack of
Income and removal followed. This was
after Mr. Adams left,
A little mcye than ten years ago the
Church of the Redeemer absorbed the
Church of the Holy Nativity, in West 136 th
street. The latter struggling parish had
begun its career downtown and was its«lf
the product of consolidation. The Rev.
Guy L. Wallis, its rector, resigned and
made, way for the Rev. William E. John
son, at the time rector of the Church ol
the Redeemer. Mr. Johnson himself re
signed two or three years ago, becoming
priest in charge of a small memorial
chapel in Chappaqua.
Mr. Johnson is quoted as saying that
there were ten thousand Episcopalians in
upper Harlem who would not attend his
church because of its forms and teachings.
To reach these people the rector and vestry
offered to lease the church to Bishop Greer.
At one time it was proposed to hold two
services each Sunday there, one elaborate
and the other plain. Finally it was agreed
that the Bishop should put in any form of
worship he chose.
BLshop Greer hesitated at entering what
might become a bitter controversy. So,
without announcing any decision, he start
ed the church again with a new rector, the
Rev. William Whiting Davia, who still re
mains in charge. Mr. Davis was not
classed as a ritualist, but he retained the
old forms observed in the church. He is
eaid to have had some success, however,
in increasing the church's income and num

Chicago. June 25.— What is said to be one
of the first separate maintenance suits
brought by a husband was tiled to-day in
the Circuit Court by Roy S. Sebree. son
of James K. Sebree, a hotel proprietor.
Sebree, who formerly was manager of the
