VI' I John Drew began Ills annual terra at the Kin- Kll fire Theatre last night In ft comedy newly do- Bfl rived hy Sydney Grundy from an old ono by tho Hm senior Alexandra Damns, nnd roduccd on K' our stage by Charles Frohtnnn. Tlioso i.

Tho outcomo was no illsnp- HSw-l polntmont, but very nosltlvo sntlsfnctlon, lllcl n ""'' UCC('M was of a kind thst do- 4iil Sierres to continue with tho moro gcnornl tjcj"' public Dumas's original French piece, "Un J3M Marriage Sous Louis XV." wns horo pro- lrc$K tented In n version entitled "A Marrlago BtM-'j ' of ConTenlenco," and the alterations con- KVjT olsted of considerably more thnn a scrrllo Irons- B'' latlon of tho langungo Into Kngllsh. Tho K purity and fluency of Mr. Grundy's stvlo raV characterized tho adaptation, and, betides 11 that, the art of tho modorn plnyw right ig tad been applied deftly. Tho outcomo of Bjjraflp hl working over of material was, firstly, a 3LJ piece of fiction to command nralso ns literature, HEjp and, secondly, to entertain people who go to tho mwM theatre for Intellectual diversion, without al- W I ways demanding dramatic stress or turmoil. Mf!7 1 Mr. Drew appoared as tho man who had made HwA a convenient marriage. Ho cared nothing for KjiA his bride, while she was similarly regardless of Wff him, nnd each held sentimental relations with MB somebody else than tho other. Doth be- 9,'S Jleved that they could complacently treat R B their loveless union as merely nomtnnl, ijlj? while letting tholr Informal affairs of tho BTw heart romaln actual, llut that arrangement H I led to trouble. Jealousy wns aroused. Mutual &V lovo ensued. The end was conjugal felicity, Tf " I but not until things of sufllclcnt account " ' t keop tho action allvo had happened. IR, The rolo of tho husband, cynical and IRVrJ wicked at first, but tender and true $m last, was treated by Mr. Drew in his best Su'St" manner as a light comedian. Ills fluency of W ' 1 diction, his easy distinction of bearing, nnd his .r j seemingly unconscious art of (full expression g were all expended upon tho Dart with caro and 3J I effect. Ills performance, llko the piny, was of n g I quiet sort, to b quietly enjoyed, and so the nu- B. ' dlenco was not noisy nor frequent with in- m terruptlng applause, but at tho ends of tho p I acts he was recalled many times and heartily. ri 1 I Bovcral English forms of the Dumas fifty- i year-old play havo been seen In Now York 1 within easy recollection. Thoy have ranged fjf from bald translation to a transfer of tho tlmo b and place to modern London, with farcical ns- WtL pects Imparted to It. Then, of course, there was Him Bardou's "Dlyorcons," on tho samo thetno of a HIsbL parried pair repenting of a resolution to seek n IK. legal separation, and Incidentally maklnir a fool llML of the secondary man In the case. Hut it may !BM M said of Mr. Orundy's Job that It Is dlstlnctlv MLmtV better than anybody elso's than Sardou's. nnd almost as good intrinsically as that, while at tho KHb same time respectfully preserving and mcasur- ably adhering to Dumas's work. MWMMt The piece was represented at the Kmplre &JH neatly, daintily, and beautifully. The singlo Stflj room in which tho four short actB took place rn was an exquisite painting In Louts XV. stylo i by E. G. Unltt, whoso titste in tho furnishing YFr was unimpeachable. Tho costumes of tho men U' as well as of the women were of tho finery r It ot the period In satins, laces, and gay ornnnien- ' totton. Thero was Incidental music by W. W. I Furst, and other fanciful embellishments which 'f 1 had not been found in the London per- i " Jpnpances. As to tho cast, it added Elslo do is.

It introduced ;;' Isabel Irving in companionship with the come- , dlan as tho bride, and her artillclallty 5(f' was not detrimental to the part assumed. A Arthur Dvron idayed the husband's friend fe and wifes lover with rare humor, mnd Daniel F. Ilarklna was hearty ns tho 'a, honest undo from tho country. As a study in '' old French inniinerB. as a depiction of human JT&. I nature anywhere, and as an example of the hlpU t(i point attained In modern stage art In New York, Ifljy j A Marrlago of Convenience "is admirable. flv J ' It Is possible that audiences may laugh at Hf jjf j "Miss Francis of Yale," for that happened lust night at tho Manhattan Theatre. Otherwlso Mg such a production could never be mado, for a JV I more dispiriting effort to entertain intelligent && 1 people has rarely bcon witnessed in New York. Kf l Michael Morton, tho author of the f arco, plainly J& 1 hasatalontfordevIslngcomIc8ituations.UuthIs & I, V play was based on a motive which almost entitles V I It to be called a worthy pendant to "A Florida f ' 0 Enchantment." As a piece of dramatic writing I i m It Is, of course, superior to that misguided ut '$ m tempt. But a mere statement of the theme f ' B will explain the resemblance. A man who j It. m Is so cffemlnato in manner that he p7l J I 1 called by his friends "Mis Francis" is ljfty.fi mistaken for a woman through his way i If V .fl ' dressing and his conduct. An old man mmaitjf makes love to him and women talk tenderly to WJk f"tf him. Tho humor of the play arose entirely from 2iK this suggestion, and It must have had Us lnflu HBjlCtf2S once on every spectator In the theatre, Unllko mmmrjE other farces with a similar theme, the leading far Imj xlguro was not forced Into this position. Ho ns mw F Mi Burned it because ho was womanish, and that tr( wJ robbed the farce of any humor that has at- tdk?4k tached iu other pieces to such a complication. IM Sometimes Mr. Morton's crudel knack of build er JM log up a broadly comlo eplsodo obscured for a Mr moment this disagreeable suggestion. Uut it ( was, as a rule, unfortunately conspicuous. Whatever enjoyment the play will afford to H audiences must como from an entirely heedless HI amusement at its boisterous movement. It Is HJ doubtful, however, if tho vehement uproar WL of tho piece will ever bo able to over- j como Its underlying theme sulllciently to m make It generally popular. Its development J shows thnt Mr. Morton can devise effective scenos. although as a whole "Miss Francis of Yalo" has little continuity. I'OBSibly that is not necessary in a farco which is very frequently ml the roughest sort of burlesque Etlonno Gl I rardot, who has proved himself un artistic nctor m In other plays, was not very happily placed last night. The rest of tho company played with tho m necessary violence. L A most singular lot of folks was concerned In Jmj. "The Heart of tho Klondike," thonowmclo- I 'Trlmm drama by Scott Marble, that hold tho Star last ffl;MI night. It was not because they wero the rough S Bfl and slmplo folk of tho Alasknn mines that mado f Bg them seem remarkablo, but it was their extraor- Bf HM dlnary donseness that marked them as unusual. HtHM T1" lovcJ' ?et wuld not speak, and MnBB for four long acts tussled mightily with IfiHH hlmsolt that he might screw his (.our- l(BB age up to handing the object of' his mHHJ passion over to another man. Tho latter was BwjHBJ as anxious as he could bo that the other should BBH win the girl, and she was head over heels tn love B,0HB with tho chap thnt wouldn't announco himself. EBH With these three characters tho playwright bad KikVM t resort to tho weakest of devices to keep up iHLHHj tho tripartite misunderstanding, and with his PABBk other folk the case was not much better. JJSJEBV While the man who had but to look 9rimm n a 0D0 won' wa glum, a roguo mWfmWM ' ot mo"t transparent villainy wns heard mBC as an eloquent pleader, and for a time tho K-BHB. audience was permitted to believo that his JHjHjHHb suit for nn honest woman's affection was sue- B ceedlng.

Tho condition of Oscnr Ilnniinersteln's affairs has now taken oil an nmiislng character. K cry body believes that Mr. llaiuiiierstcln will again bo in control ot tho Olyinpia within n short time. Ho Is too much doioted to theatrical runnugement to relinquish il without another struk-tflc. His nsslguinent wns brought about by unusual condition?, w hh h In thu pnst ho had moro thnn ouco been nblo to conquer. So It Is a settled matter that ho will bo In control of his white stono building before many weeks havo passed. Frnncls Wilson may como to tho Lyric nnd sing In "La l'oupee," bocnuso tho operetta Is too valuable ns a property to bo wabtcd. Uut the theatre will remain iu Mr. Hammcrstcin's control. This being woll understood, from the four quurtorsof tho countr) cmu thu solicitations of actors and manugors who want to rent the theatre, or buy it, or do nnthing with it, so long ns thoy enn figure publicly ns bidders for tho property. Mr. Not Goodwin Is too nbsorbed in the plnTS for his grnnd Tenderloin ConiMIo Francalso to put In u hid for Ul mpin, nnd John Doris, with a winter circus on his hands, bus not found tho tlmo to put in it bid. Hut Fanny Davenport Is said to bo clamoring for tho build ing, nnd everybody wonders what she Is going to do with it. It J. M. Hilt bad not announced his permanent abandonment ot theatrical life, his name would certainly have been among thoBe of the applicants. As It is, two New York mali ngers, as well ns ono each from Chicago, Boston and Philadelphia, havo been includ ed In the list of Impatient applicants. May Irwin was going to hnvo a theatre of her own last winter, but she is not in the thrilling scrnmblo for the Olympla. In deed, tho theatre-building contingent among tho actors has kopt quiet at this crisis when there might in reality be a theatre to got. That jo u until,' luun 1 1 1 1 1 1' ,i idisva tsu fa v owu i oat ua- tlon at Olympla demands nn entirely fresh crop otthentro builders who have not ileured con spicuously before. Miss Fanny Davenport showed genius when the united for this oppor tunity and rolled in without the thoatre build ing reputation that attaches to Nat Goodwin, Sol Smith ltunsell, and a few others. It wns said yesterday by Wise & Llchten stein, Mr. Hammcrstcin's lawyers, thnt his schedules would not Ik) ready for several days yet. No disposition ot tho theatre or any part of the Olympla building will bo mndo before the end of the week. Then It is certain thnt Mr. llnmmerstoln will bo in chnrgoof Dart of tho building If not all of It.

Damanovltz and his youthful brlda wero waiting in front of tho elovator when Mayer and his wlfo arrived.

Counsel for Knrnh Ann Angoll, who auod for dower In tho estate of Jay Gould on averments that she married him while she wan In short skirts nnd ho in knickorbockors In April, 1853, threw up his hands before Justlco Bench ot tho Supremo Court yesterday and asked for lcavo to discontinue tho nctlon. Walter E. Ward ot Albany Is tho lnwyer. Ho submitted an aftl davit staling that ho has come to Iho conclu sion that Mrs. Angoll never married Gould. Tho aflldnvlt of Mr. Ward says: "Tho only question In dlsuuto Is the question of tho marrlago. Tho moving pnpers here sub mitted by mo show that tho wny tho action camo to bo commenced was that In tho spring of lfifia n woman named Mrs. Cody camo to my oillco having a power of attorney from this plaintiff authorizing her to employ nttorneya nnd commenco this nctlon ngalnst thocstatoof tho late Jay Gould. Bho also had nn aflldnvlt flgncd by Sarah Ann Kd wards, saying that Bho lmd been a scrvnnt In tho house of tho Hov. Nathan Leigh ton In 1853, and had witnessed thu marrlago botween Jny Gould and Sarah Ann Brown. Tho Itcv. Mr. Lelghton was then living at Tunkbuiinock, Pn and this woman's nllldnvlt stated that Mr. Lelghton would sw car that ho married Gould and Sarah Ann Brown. "Tho nllldnvlt furthor stated that two men were living near Champlaln nnd ltouso's Point at tho time who could bo produced. One of them, It was said, would Bweor that ho drovo Sarah Ann Bronn to Mr. Ijoighton's house when they wero going to bo married und drovo them away afterward. Tho second man wus ono who had worked on tho surrey on which Jny Guuld was engaged at Champlnln nnd hnd maps upon which Jny Gould hud worked at tho time of tho alleged marrtugo. A bunker nt Syra cuse, It wns set forth, would testify that Gould had told him in tho early sixties that ho had some years prcilously married n woman who hud n daughter by him. Mrs. Fillmore, now tho wlfo of tho Superintendent of tho Paeltlo ltallw ay Company, would.it w as satd.tcst Ify that nho was acquainted with Gould In IB.'nl and wus told by 111 m that ho had a wlfo and duugh tir In northern Now York. "Besides, I sent a law clerk to seo Mr. Lelgh ton. who s.ild he hnd no doubt In his mind thnt he had married Vl couplo at tho time stated and guvo a. fair presumption to supposo that ho would testify to that effect. 1 sent my clerk to House's Point to see tho supposed widow und take a statement from her. she told him that sho was married to Gould when sho wus l.r and ho was 17 years old und lived with him for some months In tho early part of 1853, when ho left her, nnd sho had never Been him slnco. Her father had, she Bald, about that time gono to live In Canada, and sho had never recog nized Jay Gould as her husband, as bo hod mar ried her under tho nnme of Jason Gould. "My clerk also saw tho man who had tho maps drawn by Jny Gould, and I commenced this action iu perfect good fulth, and having tho assuruueo that witnesses would testify ns staled. I hnd not tlmo to Investigate tho coso us fully ns I would havo wlsbud. Mr. Leigh tun wus 81 years old, nnd his deposition was taken, n woll ns that of other witnesses, who wero all botween TO und 80 j enrs old. Ono ot tho witnesses for this plnlntlff has slnco be come mentally incapacitated and one of those whose depositions were taken for tho defence hns slnco died, so that If auy action wns to be taken it should bo taken at onco and tho evi dence perpetuntod." Mr. Ward said that evldenco of witnesses hnd been taken in Canada, Michigan, California, Wyoming, and In this Stale, which filled more than u thousand pages, and continued: "Whllo this was going on, tn August last, the newspapers printed Interviews with the plain tiff in which Bho snid sho had never been mar ried to Jay Gould, and Uiat all her previous statements wero untruo. Immediately I sent tn thu Illdtrict Attorney of Clinton countr. who visited Mrs. Angell nt ltouso's Point, when sho acknowledged making this statement, and snld she hnd no claim for dower on tho Gould estate. During tho past year and a hnlf I have fully Investigated tho entire history of tboso parties, and where Joy Gould was at tho tlmo of this alleged marriage. "I am thoroughly convinced there Is no founda tion for this action, and I now make this mo tion for the reason that, having commenced this action voluntarily and mado tho charges, I think it no more than justice to tho defendants to this suit that 1 should come into court and take the initiative In having tbo action dis missed rather thaa allow It to bo called to tho calendar. I also make this motion because, having assumod the obligations of nn attorney, I wish the discontinuance ot this action so that I may be absolved by this court from any further obligation In tho suit." EUhu Hoot, in behalf of the Gould executors, said that Mr. Ward had taken a lnwyer like and mnnly course. "But the action," ho said, "Is one of an exceedingly serious nature nnd not only affects tho title to a great estate, but the complaint sworn to by Mrs. Angell Imputes Illegitimacy to the children of the lato Jay Gould, Imputes to their mother that she was not the lawful wife of Mr. Gould, and Imputes to their father the commission of a crime which Is abhorrent to all. This ennnot be allowed to pass without very serious condemnation. "The action was, wo are satisfied, tho result ot a conspiracy, which made the plaintiff hero the Instrument ot foul design to blackmail tho children of Mr. Gould, and of which Mr. Ward was one of the victims. Under these circum stances we feel that this complaint ought not to bo dismissed without Buch a record being mado as conclusively and forever to bar the plaintiff from reasserting her claim. Wo nsk that such a record bo mado as will end this proceed ing, as wo Intend to take action ngalnst tho authors of this conspiracy to blacken tho repu tation and blackmail tho heirs ot tho late Juy Gould. "Tho eomplnint In this caso was sworn to by Mrs. Angell. Sho makes no nllldnvlt on this motion nor Is there on the papers any Indica tion that she has authorized it. Tho motion on Its face Is not for tho protection of her rights nor In furtherance of her claim, but Is Bomewhnt hostile to her nnd brought by her lawyer in furtherance of what he believes to be his duty nnd not ns her representative. I think she her ndt should bo committed to this motion which bus been mode, and I BuggcBt thnt your Honor should mnko sucn an order as will provide for porsonnl notice to her that Oils proceeding has been brought and that sho has authorized tho discontinuance of tho suit. Otherwlso we would be linblo within six months to hnvo an other nctlon commenced by this plnlntlff In which Bho may renew nil her charges Hnd sny thnt sho was no party to this motion; that her rights were unjustly taken from her because Bho is a poor woman. This woman must be made to eay that sho never had nny claim against tho Gould estate." Justice llonch said ho thought the best thing to do would bo to enter an order denying this motion nnd follow it by nnnther order provid ing thnt tho netion should lie preferred on the calendar for trial tho first Monday of Decem ber, and thai personal service of this order bo mado upon tbo plaintiff in this action. Tho counsel agreed to this suggestion of the Judge, nnd Immedlntely secured lcavo from Justlco Freodninn, who denied a motion for preference on tho calendar last wcok for a re argu incut of that motion.

Ono of tho most Interesting sketch projects for mural decoration shown nt tho exhibition ot tbo Architectural League lost ) ear was n frieze In color representing Chaucer's Canterbury Pilgrims on tholr Journoy by llobcrt V. V. Bowell. Slnco then this frieze hat been oxe cutcd by tho artist on n largo sculo, nnd It Is to bo placed In tho central hallway of tho new house built at Lakewood for Mr. George Gould by tho architect Bruio Price. Tho frlcro will be placed on threo sides of tho room, nnd Its height Is nbout soven and a halt feot. Tho total length of tho threo sections Is nbout eighty fcot, On either tldo of tho central panel It Is pierced by doorways, the top of tho fmmework reaching almost to the upper lino of Iho frieze. Tho com position coutolns twcnly-fourflsuros, nlfmount ed, whether upon horses, mules, or nsses, ond tho procession Is rcpreoentod ns passing nlong a high garden wall with gatownys. Trcotops ond roofs are seen abovo tho wall, and sunlight glancing through tho follago flecks tho person ages and tho roadway with checkered beams. Mostot the horses and mules arc gray or white, though thoro are. of course, como that are black or bay, and tho figures, clothed In tho costumes of tho period, chow a variety of bright and of sombre tints. Beginning at Iho loft of tho frieze at tho rear of the procession tho figures nro placed as fol lows: Thollccve, or Bnlllff, who "ever rode tho hindmost of tho rout"; tho Country Parson, tho Prioress anl tho Nun, tho Monk, tho Miller, iho Pardoner, the Canon, or ABtrologcr, tho Trior, tho Wifcof Bath, thcSqlilro.thoICiilght (tho cen tral figure of tho frieze), tho Yeoman, the Hum bio Wayfarer (who hns attached himself to tho party nnd carries tho Knight's speni), tho Doc tor of Physic, tho Shlpmiin, tho Hnberdasher, tho Merchant, tho Sergeant nt Law, tho Clork of Otenfcrd, Harry llulley (tho host), the poet Chaucer, tho Manciple, ami tho Cook, who, mounted un n donkey, lends the van. The groups nro clcicrly nrrnnged so that each personngo Is seen to advantage, and tho paint ing Is hardy and vigorous. Tho color scheme, comprising many different tints, it gny enough to bo pleasing to tho eye and sober enough to hold thu Individual elements together In a torn plcto w hole. Tho Knight, clad In n suit of mail nndalenther Jarkot.lsallno figure. Those of tho Wlfo of Bath, tho Sergeant at Iiw, the Yeoman nnd tho Doctor otPhyBlc uro particularly happy. The llu-urn of tho Snulre. who i-t described ns "a lover and a lusty bathulor," bcciiis too effeminato In type to bo a good portrait, but ho Is offset by tho excellent llguro of Hurry Bailey, riding a gray stulllou width whinnies as ho strides along. Mr. Sew ell bus chosen un excellent subject for dccoratlvo treatment, and has hnndlcd It with n great deal of ability. It Is nn ngrcenbla change, too, to como upon n mural painting which has something else than majestic figures ot law, government nnd the like, or female figures representing music, poetry, nnd science for its theme. Thcso are Ideal subjects for dccoratlvo treatment, of course, but wo havo had almost nothing clso since the decorative "movement" began. In tho largo upper gallery of tho American Art Association, where this fflero is ou exhibi tion, there nro several pictures by Mr. Scwcll, Including "The Bacchanals" ond a composition which has not been exhibited before, " Itepose." It shows two nude female figures stretched on tho ground In tho woods, with bright patches of sunlight fulling upon them. It Is a canvas of decided merit, in which there is bouio strong painting and effective handling ot tho effect ot light. In the lower gallery there Is a small but interesting collection of works by soma of tho noted continental artists of tho day. Among seven or eight Mo nets, "Sunset at Argenteuil" (probably an early work), "Tho Field," and "Haystacks at Glvorny" are notably good. Threo heads by Ilesnard aro scarcely representative. Two Cozlns, threo HafTaelles, and two pictures by Fritz Thaulow, tho Norwegian painter who re ceived the silver medal at the Cnrnegiocxhlbltion at Pittsburg the other day, nrn tlio most impor tnntamong the rest. Ono of IhoThaulows, "Au tumn," is good nnd Interesting, but tho other, a pastel called " Winter," is ecn moro than that. An effect of lato afternoon sunlight on enow, troo trunks, and red houses is delightfully ren dered, and tho dark, swiftly flowing water ot a river is given with admirable truth.

Tho communication was from nuiiop CCMcCabo to Dr. Lanahan and contained a. poem, which tho Bishop requested Dr. Lananan to road to the Dreadier' meeting. The poem as tho original production of a Bishop ot tho Methodist Church, was highly Intercstlne to tho ministers nnd laymen. It was as follows: A WAttNlSO TO THB HISIIOPS.

A motion was evolved llnally appointing a committee of live to mako n suitable reply.

L'unry liUnil ConEresatlonallila offended by the Attnrk or the L'upald Preacher. At present tho Coney Island Concrcgatlonal Church, tho only Protestant church ou Coney iBland, is without n pastor. For nearly Boven years W. F. Sillcck, a New York busi ness man und a member of tho Clinton Avenue Congregational Church in Brooklyn, has been tilling tlio pulpit frco of charge, but ho has now resigned, becauso ho is loo aggressive for tho financial prosperity of tho church. Ot lato ho has been hitting right and left at certain phases of llfe.whlch ore common subjects for attack by clergymen In this city, hut a Coney Island con irremitli.n in likely to be mado UD of persons whoso professional prldo is easily hurt. For In stunco, a certain raco horso owner not un known In tho betting ring has boon nn attend ant at thu sen ices and n contributor to the trensury. Recently Mr. Sillcck expressed very freely his opinions on the Immorality of betting on racos. "That lets mo out," said tho racing man. "You can make a book on It that they don't get any more entrnnco money out of me." Another ono who3o feelings were hurt bo thut ho left Is a wealthy brewer. Ho Bat well up iu front on the Sunday when the preacher took tho evils of tho liquor trulllo as his theme. "That's me," said tho brewer, after tho ser vico. "Aimed right slup ut mo. I'm through. You don't get mu to como .hero and bo black guarded any moro." Several others left tho church In anger, and tho attelidunco dwindled su that last Sunday there wero but twenty-two persons present. Then Mr. Sillcck resigned. Tho church will now try lo get a regulurly ordulned minister und pay for him. All thoo prominent In tho church Bpcak highly of Mr. hillock, und say that ho is personally all thnt could bo desired, but that he treuds un people's toes too much. "Whnt wo need," said Dencou Overton, one of the most prominent members, "Is a man w ho will be a pastor as well as a minister. A pastor understand b his people and knows whero he must trend gently. Mr. Sillcck had not tho time to do patiloral'work-'ns hu hns Ids business to attend to. All of us rcalizo the debt of grati tude wo owo him for giiing us his services for seven years without nieni of reward, and ho leaves tho church with tho lovo nnd ndmlra tlon of nil tlioso who knew him well. Wo can not expect a preacher to bo truo to his convic tions without offending somebody; but wo think thnt from tho point of view of tho church'n future a regularly ordained preacher who will live hero among us will be ablo to do more, because ho can do pastoral work, which Mr. Sllleclc had no tlmo to do. Besides that, Mr. Hillock, not being n ccrgyinun, could not mnrrv orperform nny of tho rites of tho Church, nnd thut wns inconvenient at times. e shall try to get u il-rgymnn to take tlio church nnd to rnlse enough to puy him u regular salary." irr.Kr7t vironci: tkiat, esdkd.

It was started last January not very long ago, M but long enough for it to have made a place for itself in f 100,000 of the best homes of the country. There is something about successes that interests us, g) The successful man, the successful enterprise, the successful novel, the successful play all these appeal to us. We instinctively turn away from " frosts." The thing that the M people want and will have is the thing we want nnd g will have if we can get it. We want to read the book that everybody is reading ; we want to read the magazine that everybody is reading our friends are reading. We like to Kg know why this thing or that or the other is a success what J it has about it that makes it a success. W I Cbe puritan for JNbvcmber ft will show you why it is a success. It is a great issue. 48 large w quarto pages, rich in illustration, rich in the variety and W excellence of its contents. Don't fail to get it. Uf (2 l0W B6Q(ly or from Ihcpubllsner! 10 ClS.
