byranasls Wno Are Comical In Their Feats.
The. nhsurdltlos of tho halt dozen comedian
In 'lho Glad Hand" nro almost contlnuoui In
tho hour ancLXhnlt that tho nxtravagama take
up at Weber & Fields'. Not ono of the six un
dertakes anything that Is In tho least unlike
kla former doings, and the matter is different,
' t ut Us nuturo and tho manner o( Its delivery
' lavo characteristics that ore thoso comlo play
ers' trademarks. Joseph Wobor and Louis
Field:, tho ono rotund and guileless, tho other
long, stoop-shouldcrod and argumentative, ore
little changed from tho two grotesquely cari
catured Hermans who brought theso fun
makers to tho proprietorship of n Uroadway
music hnll. Bam Barnard is aa twisted of
iptrch as ever, and a chonco for imitating tlp
tlncts Is afforded him. John T. Kelly's Irish
man Is as wild a caricature as that of his cm
rlojir"', and 'twas ever thua with him.
rhnrles J. Iloss has several songs, but ho proved
himself nn acccptablo vocalist last season, and
row his burlesque of war drama is marked by
his customary seasoning of real and truo serl
tonnes'. Peter F. Dalley, tho season's recruit
In this retort's comlo folk, Is Daller still, fllp
l ant and cheeky, with a glve-me-four-cards and
1 win confidence. Weber, Fields andllcrnard
re together In a criticism of a bono on which
w tho trio enter, and a bird dog that won't ro-
n trlevo is also a subject of dlsousslon and wild
U nlpronumIatIon with them. Weber's com-
I plaints ocr tho dog's failures to fulQl his
I lornicr owner's recommendations aro met with
I tht vcuso that ho only takes cooked birds, and
I llrrnard kindly advises that tho hunter carry a
H gas stovo on his gunning trips. It is Flolds and
I IUrnard who arc seasick and who cast Ushllncj
I from a boat whoso clock la show n In tho second
I set. A cowbell bolta ono's hook and a slice of
I cheese tho other, and tho two hooks aro cant
I widely apart that tho chceso may not ring the
I It 11. The partnorshlp of tho three Germans is
I to strong for comicality that It Is no wonder
I? Weber Is the catch, and when ho I hauled
I sbovrd In a dripping rubber coat, benoath which
I sre a neat whtto vest and a dry suit, ho quickly
I proves an amusing reinforcement. Of tho other
I threo Kelly Is tho deceived one, and Dallcy and
I" Roes are the deceivers. As Wobcr is cheated
a: cards, so Kelly is separated from his stags
I money at dice and In ridiculous wagers. Ono
I be' U that Ross cannot tell the name of Kelly's
futuro wife, and after bets are made, Kelly f ur-
nUhlng the money for one of tho sharpers, his
own namo Is askrd, and then he Is told that that
will naturally li his wife's name All of tho
six but Hoss nro coni-arned in an overturo
played withiut instruments. Drum. comet,
tuba and other Instruments aro Imitated, and
Kelly t a frantic director. This closes with u
tnlo that Bernard plays on a spy clan. All six
re placed In "Secret Servants, of whose broad
burltso.ua their absurdities are tho life.
B' Edward ITarrlgan Is among friends at Pas-
I tor's, as is shown plainly at his first entranco
B in "Sergeant Hlckcy." Ho is dressed as a
B host'er, with velveteen trousers two sizes too
B Urge for him tucked into his boots, with red
B flannel shirt sleeves showing to bis elbows,
B and with a red wig of straight and dusty hairs.
B lie appears at the back of tho stago and makes
B toward tho footlights with that unique collab-
B, oration of legs and elbows that makes the liar-
B rlgan walk a favorite mark for vaudeville lm-
B itators. In both hands be holds an uncorked
B bottle of horse medicine, that ho shakes as if
B to take up its sediment. Ills first ords con-
oern this remedy, and as Mr. Iiarrlgan grants
B but tho slightest rcsponso to his admirers ho is
B kept vigorously shaking the bottle for a minute
Bj or two beforo ho can mako bis description of
its virtues beard. Afterward, when he gives
B to two of his companions a drink of this mix
B ture, which they suppose to be whiskey, their
Bj antics of distress are the causa of even greater
H' noise. The humor of this sketch has been en
, tiched since. It was first played in local vaude
L rllle a few weeks ago, and a little more of tho
Hedge hammer and tongs Is noticeable In the
' hianner of Its tun. Next to the iiarrlgan
h Iroupe of six players In Pastor's bill are Felix
ind Cain. Cain Is a vocalist, whose singing is
(otnlcally InterruDted by his companion, whose
Intlcs range from running up a board to turn
j Ing eccentric flip-flaps. A new Item of his fun
Involves the fall of a house, whose entire front
Is shown, and which looks like a substantial
affair. When the singer reaches the most sen-
tlmental stanza of his ballad, the other pulls
j- the house front toward him. Its fall begins
very slowly, and yet tho time la not long enough
to disclose how man and scenery are to coma
out unhurt. Rut he Btands where a window
Bj will come over him. and when Its shutters
have owned inward and the sccno is lying
fat the joker stands as ho did before, entirely
H unconcerned. A novel clncmatographo view
shown at Pastor's was taken from a moving
j train of cars, and the panoratnio plcturo It
gives of the objects that a train would pass in
moving out of a station such as carsheds,
shops and stationary cars, with a snowy land
Bj ecape in the background is so realistic as to
be very confusing to watchers in the darkened
BJ When the Casino was a muslo hall two of Its
Bj performers were the Corpos brothers, acrobats
BJ of bovisb appearance. Their feats were so
H dangerous that the chances of their attaining
H, the age of the rctlroil circus acrobat seemed
H Improbable. Now they are at tho Olympta,
Hi still leaping riskily, and appreciably broad-
Ht ened. Their tumbling and lifting on the ground
Hj are remarkable, but the Item that ends their
H bpeclalty looks dangerous. Tho lighter chap
H clsmbers to a tiny platform ten feet abovo the
H stage, and from there turns a backward somcr-
H n sault to the shoulders of his fellow, who ro-
H mains standing on tho floor. Thrco attempts
H usually fall biforo the whirling man lands on
Hi his companion's shoulders. The slips are not
H without peril, and it Is not a pleasant sight to
j see tbo topmost man. who has but the slightest
H' control over himself, go down to tho floor,
H either along the other's back or across his
H frilled shirt front: and it seems a reckless pro-
H' reeding, after one of these mishaps, when the
man polnes hlnisolf again to become a shuttle
j Lock at tbo other's word of command. Borne
feat of irround exercise follows each slip as a
iicre ktc.ulltr, and then cornea anotlicr try.
It Is tho plan to keep at It till It Is accomplished,
but on Monday night at tho Olympla tho sec-
nnd unsuccessful essay sent the Jumporoff
Tl limping and success was not accomplished,
I though tho orchestra leader held valiantly to
, his cue for "shlvory" music. In contrast to

To Tns KmTon of Tno BvxStr: For the
past six months I havo been forced to asioolato
more or less with tho young mon who aro boss
ing tho Citizens' Union, and I havo been study
lng them. From tho first tbey havo reminded
mo of something, but what that something was
I was unablo to say .until a few days ago. Of
courso I knew nil tho tlmo that they wors
"birds," but what kind of birds I
Last week I had occasion to visit Kowburg,
and whtls there somo of my friends took me out
to see a friend of theirs, n former otllclnl of tho
New burg Street Railroad Company. Thlsgontlc
man Is a pigeon fanclor. and his particular fad
is the famous fantail brood, lho moment I
caught sight of a coop full of theso birds I knew
what tho somothing was that thojoung men of
tho Citizens' Union reminded me of. Now don't
laugh. Tho fautall plgoon is a cry beautiful
bird (when it Is not on its dignity). So Is a
Citizens' Union boss, as any body will admit who
has seen ono.
Tho fantail pigeon Is a bird with an exag
gerated sense of its own Importance.
I am suro that my frleuds In tho Citizens'
Union will, In their sober u oincnts, when they
aro uninfluenced by tho ecstasy of reform, agree
with mo that this same exaggerated sense Is a
predominating feature of their own characters.
Again, tho fantail Is a bird of much dignity
when npproachod. Why, when I approached
this coop of fautnlls I could almost lmagtn
myself entering tho familiar headquarters of
the Citizeus' Union and tho august presence of
Statesmen Reynolds and Clark aud Pine. Aye,
an 1 of the great Seen Low hlmsolf.
Every bird In the coop rote up and puffed out
Its bosoni and throw back its head, and some of
them stood up so straight and pushed their
bosoms out so fur that they tumbled over on
their backs Many and many a time when I
have entered the Inner room In the hoadquar
ters of tho Cits have I seon this same swelling
out of bosoms Many and many a time hae I
feared for the back of the young statesmen as
I watchod them swoll up until tbey wero teeter
ing back and forth ou their heels. Yt,Blr, there
Is no question about it, tho Citizens' Union
birds aro to tho political world what the
fantalls are tn the bird world. They arc, in
short, the fanlalls of politics. I say this in nil
earnestness and not with un) idea of rlitkullng
the young men. I moan rather to compliment
them. As the fantail Is tho proudest und most
beautiful of the bird world, so also is tbo Cit of
the political world.
llils being tbo case, why wouldn't It bo a good
Idea for the Cits to adopt the fantail for a party
emblem I They haven't any emblem now. Ibey
musthao one If thoy bopo to got olesin the
The law pro ldc for au emblem. The fantail
Is just tho thing. I inclose a draw ing of one t
these beautiful bird. It was made nheu the bird
waon itsdlgnit). No ono who has entered the
Inner room of tho Citizens' Union headquarters
will foil to see In this plcturo the counterpart of
thodignit) be saw in that room, 1 rusting that
m suggestion will be ricehed In tho spirit In
which It Is offered, and that ue all may havo the
chance to vote for tho fantail emblem, I remain,
yours verj trul.

Arthur Clarence Uolden of Newark is really

It Is a fact that he has sought notoriety by at
tempting suicide several times, and has always
come out without serious inionvciiI net. Tho

He said that ho was going to try It from the
American Hurett building, but that first he
would get Mayor Strong's permit to Jump from
the Hrooklyn Ilriilge, nnd that next year he
would probably go to Paris and jump from tbe

To the great surprise of hi sponsors In tha
Hoard of Education, A. tW. Edson, recently
appointed Assistant Superintendent of Publlo
Bchools.hos been turned back by tho Civil Scrvlco
Commission, having failed to gain a sufficiently
high percentage In tho examination sot by
Uiat body, Mr. Kdson, who was Stato agent of
education! in Massachusetts, was chosen from
a list of about forty applicant from all parts
of the country, and his nomination was ap
proved by the Hoard of Education at its meat
lag of Sept. 8 by avoto of 11 to 0. At that
tlmo some one called attention to tho fact that
tho candldato could not actually take ofllco
until ho had passed the requisite civil scrvlre
examination, and suggested that pending that
ordeal tho appointment bo made provisional.
This suggestion was passed over, tho boaexl
considering that In the case of such a man as
Mr. Edson tha examination would bo merely a
brief and pleasant formality.
It turned out otherwise. Two days after his
appointment was mads Mr. Kdson fjiresented
hlmsolf boforo Chief Examiner Fredorlolc (i,
Ireland and sat down to tho consideration of a
paper of somewhat formidable proportions.
When ho uroso after a protracted struggle
with tho paper ho looked worn.
"If I had known what 11 was going to be
like," bo said, "I should not havo trlod tho ox
ntulnation at this tfmo. The questions were
almost entirely tochnlcal. I do not think I
have mudo thu required 80 por cent"
Mr. Edson left town after his examina
tion. Tho Hoard of Education ;rocolved no
notification from tho Ulvll Service Hoard re
garding Mr. Kdson, nnd Inquiries were modo.
It developed Unit tho candldato had fallod to

tho examination was unduly sovoro. Mr.
Edson. the) buy, is a scholar of unquestioned
standing, lie Is a graduato of Dartmouth Col
lege In tho cIiihs of 1 878, nnd has been princi
pal of lho Wvst Randolph, YU, High School
nnd tho Vermont Normal School at Randolph.
His friends say that no man nearly twenty

examination without preparation, of which
Mr. Edson had none. Hitherto cundidntoti for
places on the Hoard of Superintendents havo
been oxnmlnctl beforo tho city Superintend

Rkapiso, Pa., Sept, 23. Augustus M. Ang
stadt and his two married sisters, of this county,
to-day retained Messrs. Rleser and Schaeffer, at
torneys at-law, of Reading to begin proceedings
to set aside tho strange and unusual will of Dr.
T. M. Angstadt, who committed suicide by
poison in order that ho might give bis estate to
a suffering patlont he was unablo to cure, and
because the patient needed the money moro
than tbe doctor. Dr. Angstadt was 11 yearso d,
and wai born here. He graduated at Muhlen
berg college, was ordained a Lutheran clergy
man at tho Theological Seminary In Philadel
phia, aud received a call In Nova Scotia. He
preached four Tears nt Mahone Hay and re
turned Th n he went to Jefferson Medical Col
lego, graduated, and two years ngo weut bad. to
Nova Scotia and practiced medicine.
Among his patients was a young man named
Enoch Elsenhauer. a great sufferer, whom the
doctor and other physicians wero unable to help,
even after an operation had been performed.
This so worked on tbe mind of Dr. Angstudt
that ha went Into the barn of the Rev. J. Mauror,
took a doss of poison, aud ended his life ills
Inst will was opened, in which he directed that
all his nropert), worth about $ 2 000. lie given to
the suffering Mr. Eisenhaucr, and he calls on
"all merciful people" wbo know the sufferer to
aid him all tbey can. Tbe nrst news of this
strange affair camo In a letter to his relatives
written just beforo his doath, but the Halifax
raldt also received to day. contulns a long
act ount of the suicide, and adds:
" Dr. Angstadt did every thing In his power to
relieve the pain of the man. He was hourly
haunted with the face and the cries nf the suf
ferer, until tbe thought that he could neither
share nor euro the sutTeriug caused him to t ike
his own life. This knowledge tauscd this warm
hearted, oversensitive man to end his dajs,
leav lng bis property to tho sufferer."
As Dr. Angstadt s will bad no witnesses, his
relatives here and the attorneys think thero
will be no difficulty in securing the estate for
the heirs bete.

President Sehurmnn delivered his annual ad
dress at noon mid touched ou n great variety of
subjects extemporaneously, lho subject on
which he exhibited the most onrnostness was
that part whnro ho Indlroctly referred .to lho
troublo botween tho corporation of llrown Uni
versity and President Andrews. Ho said:
"Ilryco In his great work, 'The American
Commonwealth,' says that whllo wo assort
that tho majority rules, wo assort that tbe ma
jority Is right. Ho descrtbos It as fatalism of
tho multitude, a readiness to ncqulesco In tho
doclslou of tho majority. Yet another condi
tion of affairs may prevail. Tho minority or a
slnglo person may havo truth and bo right
whon tho;mnjorlt)s wrong. If then lOs tho
business of tho university lo tench tho .major
ity belief, such an assertion contravenes ovcry
principle on which lho university is founded,
Uowovcr truo It may bo thut the majority may
rulo in a commonwealth. In a unlvorslt) it
should be ouo man with God's truth. If all of
Uils Is true, lho Individual will bo freo to an
nouneo and proclaim all phases of tho truth as
It occurs to lllm. A inombcr of tbo lnst-uctlng
staff who docs not exordia such freedom of ox
prosston has tnlssod tho celling of his profes
sion. Socrates Is tho exitmplo of the greatest
teacher. What Socrates did nnd what ho con
demned tho Athenians for not doing, that Is w hat
the teachers aro callod ilpou to do. A toather
is tho representative of no ono. Let blm bo a
minister of God's truth and minister In tho
tetnplo of learning and scholarship. It Is a
Mitrllcgo to give out what is false or to sup
press what ho himself considers to be the truth.
"Money is needed to curry on a university.
I know this well. I know that our Hoard of
Trustees is wrestling with tho question how to
mako both ends meet. Yet If money is to bo
the goal of instruction by tho suppression of
tho truth, by sotting a limit on tho teacher,
better a thousand times that the Institution
should be put out of existence. The end of tho
university la truth und the propagation of tbe
truth. Money Is a means for this end. As an
end it has a polsonout and deadly blto. Thus
all tho pretensions to set limits to teaching must
bo resisted. Nor uro those considerations of
more Importunco to tho touchers than to the
publlo and civilisation In genorah Tho prin
ciple of the republic Is that lho majority ruin,
The principle is equally truo that tbo Individual
may be in lho right und tho mnjarlt) in error.
All progress in selem o has demonstrated this
truth. Take It In the stud) of astronomy.
