'lho tKy piece is a semi-historical rcrrescnlallon ot old BL'Sf'iY Creole days In Now Orleans nruily a century H I ago, and ono of tho characters Is an octoroon i ( fortune teller. That Is tho part which Miss V i'J 0t'5 '8 ' characterize, and, as the woman Is HJ u Mid to bo not tho conventional hug of stage I 'tit necromancy, but a handsome, opulent and ad IJ, powerful (actor In tho allalrs of tbu Louisiana Hf I colony ut that porlod. It may bo that tho uctress W H will dlstlnguWi hersolf. Mr )l Kloio Uo Wolfe, who stepped from fashionable ' J society dlrtctly Into stage life under favorable I droumstanccs, Is playing the part of tho m I maid servant In "A Mnrr,'ago of Conven- j lenco" at tho Empire, nnd Is doing It with ex- j ccptlonal cleverness. It Is a pert yet clever creature whom sho Impersonates, a mcnlnl Trlth the graces of a lino lady, nod tbo techni cal difficulties of tho part aro overcome ad mirably. Miss lie Wullo has hitherto appeared in raiment moro modish than almost any other ' actress on tho Now York stugo. Hhe enmo to be regarded rather ns a dlsplayer ot tulleu than Of talent, but she now acquits herself dltlcrently. Daniel Frohmnn has gathered some excep- ; tlonally interesting actors in his company at tho . Lyceum this season, and among them Is a I quartet ot beauties that would bo a delight to ,1 the eyo In whatover play they nppearcd. I Julio Opp's beauty is so closely associated with jl the English type that, considered in connection II with her English accent and her way of dross 1' lng, it is nearly impossible to reallto that she is a New York product with a London im rencor that was acquired In a cry brief i period, llutsho Is posltitcly charming in her 'iff lithe comeliness, whatover Its kind may be, nnd ' there Is already a graco In her stntucsqucness 9m' which Is certain to incrcaso with further ex M perienco. Tho suggestion of sensitive nnd Hi tender womanhood is not in tho loast of t fected by her uncommon height, Mnry Man- JKK nerlng's dainty beauty Is shown In a fashion jjyTv- which gains Intensity ns tho play proceeds, rfif ' with the momentary interruption of tho mas- $ Querndo scene, in which us a llui tcyuin her best Mi " qualities are not shown. Hut In tho last net lM sho Is a plcturo of lo cllncss which, contrasted n w"a tlj0 blondo beauty of Katharino Florence, j srlvcs to both tho most favorable circumstance II for tholr display. Allison SUpworth Is a blondo H now, although as tho unidentified charm of "An Artist's Model," hir circcthe locks wero H ot a darker hue. Hut Mio is as placidly and M immovably handsomo as ccr, and teems not (H nearly so English us Miss Upn. This comely f quartet of actrehscs docs not include tbo only HR sightly ones In the Lyceum's new play. Helen it Macbeth has a girlish attractheness, and Nina Hn Morris is luxuriant mough in dress and figure H, to give an especial point to tier remarks on tho MfK delights of eating. Miss Lsmlson, who has HJU taken Miss Tyree's part temi orarlly, acts with HJ h dlsciotton and uuthurily, nml wonrs her gowns ll with distinction. Ornco ltont has only to play ,fM-t an Incidental rolo well, mid sho accomplishes 'Afjit that with unusual i-kill. Mie is tbu companion iHb'U ' to the J'rlnceta, nnd shows that tho character Bf Is a Rcntlewomnn reduced to the necessity ot RJ her position. This sho keeps continuously In HMj mind, and never onco does a false touch do- H stroy tho proportions of tho sccnos In which sho appears, indeed, tho J't ineeim Is fortunate in Tl the selection of her dnmcstle associates, uini EH her maid, as Evelyn Carter embodies her, is Wl an acocptublo a llgure in the brilliant episodes n of the play. Hn All tho honors in tho nctlncof the new piny I nro not on tho spindle side. Kdward Morgan's Hi aril cut lovo making has n telling depth of ftel- n lng and Intensity. William Cnurtlelgli sncrl- l flees the proprieties to bis profile when hoap 11 pears as a French diplomat with n cleanly iSijf shaven face. Such a phenomenon is not often E met with, but good looks are univorsally un- m derstood, whereus tho manners of tho French i aristocracy liuve n less general recognition.

Mr. JIackctt has always tho attractive 5 ncss of joulli. and Felix Morris clays a char- IV acter part with all of his excellences nnd nnno Ml of his faults In view. Ho figures In a typo of .H'H ,.a the play's lighter phases, ills wlfo is indlf- JHHaJl' fercnt to him. ajid, indeed, unfaithfulness seems ((K certainly Imputed to her.

Just as sbo disappears from view MYaii her husband's presence oicurs to her. With- il'j out pausing she says "good night" In the most umfYX Indifferent manner possible. Tho husband, left lHy I") to himself, looks about tho deserted room, and HT ft I 1 then turns out tho electric lights. Ho opens tho tit- I ' door leading to his apartments and stares out I Li for a moment. Then uo goos out, nnd the door inE'Mn swings shut bcnlnd him.

Two characters In "The Princess and the bHF I Butterfly" are unusual enough to impart a rare UH f i shorm to the play. One of those is tho Princtta Hf A'J Pannonfa, a. llgure so llttlo touched by the MCj realities ot life that she might havo stepped HKft from the pages of some fairy story. Thero are HfjA no dellnlng outlines about her. The character Huif! is blurred and misty In the ether of a modern 9M t romanticism which Is delicate and subtle as BK the air in which an cnrllcr Princess Mntainc ft I might have lived far away in a land of loving EH'Jj and singing. This l'inoro Princess was born In If England, and when sbo was only 'JO jears old Iff went to live in a custloin Hungary with uhus- Jlil band twice her own uge.

M'l There Is a reference to a Icttur expected m from a certain Padre Antonio in Milan who is U to clear up ihe mystery ot thu gill's lite, but this ., BeI element adds only a greater plctures'iueness K? A and strangeness to the character. In these If A two types Mr. 1'lucro has added two delightful iHV" wemeu to tho gallery of the stage. I B V J TbF M other figures in the play that stand IB a I WiMacUr against the bocks-round of Loo- don drawing rooms and Paris talons. One of those Is Mr. Baint.liocht, and another Is her husband, Uutoftho two. Mrs. Saint-Jlocht If moro Important., She Is the ono wouian in the social lot that ia plainly shown to bo guilty. et hor horror at thethougnt of having received into her houso an avowedly dlsrcnulable woman Is ho great that tho rotuBoa to hoar anything about her beyond that moro fact! and tho poi son w ho would tell her Is her husband. Hels a rouili; llgurp of perplexity and confidence amid Ibu lifo of his wife and her friends, who havo romo to viow tho wbolo business with an evi dent resignation to his inability ever to under stand what It all moans. Young Rdtcard Oriel is not an Imerostlng llgure. and for that rca son Mr, Morgan's acting rooms moro than over to be pralsod, for ho wins n curtain Involun ;ury sympathy for htm from tho spectators. 'Ihe woman who hates to go to tho theatre be cause it hurries her dinner; the old couplo who ul tho ngo of GO and moro aro still in thu honey moon begun eo many years liefore; the slight sketch of tho young French diplomat living m 1-oiidon, and the two or thrco studies ot English girlhood nro tho more or less striking person aires that movo through tlio serious and Inciden tal Uguros of tho play. And a diversely Inter esting, truthfully drawn nnd admirably select ed lot they arc. In tho mere matter of Us char acter study, tho second act, which has little or no beurlngon tho rest ot tbo play, Is possibly the most Interesting, The circus which Is housed now in Forty second street conforms to the traditlonnl idea of a circus moro closely than tho usual circus which finds its way to Now York. Thero aro not tho grnndeur and bewilderment ot tho three-ring nffalrs, but the quality ot tho per formance is good, nnd the circus atmosphere of tbo kind that Is learned In childhood Is strong. Thero aro clowns, for Instance, who talk quite as the first clowns one can remember did, whllo the young ladles on hotsebsck ride slowly around the ring trying not to took bored to death, and escaping It only as much nt a peri odic and mirthless smllo suddenly turned on tho spectators can help them to. There is ono clown nt Doris's who describes hlmsolf as Shakespearean, and sets tho spectators to guessing what that term can possibly refer to. It Is only when he comes to tho end of his jokes and repeats n long list ot tbo names of tjhako suoare's plays that they rcallzo what thero Is about him to justify any mention of the great poet. Ono dlfllculty with a "pcrmuncnt" circus lies in tho fact that tbo prevailing vaudeville exhibits nearly all of tho performers who used to be chiefly associated with the sawdust ring, and nil that the acrobats and tumblers can do l-i usually to be seen In tho music halls. Hy tbnt means New York, without having a permanent circus, usually has moro of the feuturcs on viow which go to mnko up a circus programme. That element is missing only in tbo riding, and this Is wisely made a particular foaturo of the programme uptown. Thero is so much in the Idea ot tbo circus appealing to everybody that there bccius no good rea&on why New York should have bad to watt bo long before some attempt wus niado to found one here. Paris hus two circuses that aro rarely It ever closed, and Ilerlln has two. Ono ot tbem Is qulto pretentious. During a long period of every year Vienna has its permanent circus as vrell. Home of tho other European cities are never bereft of tho enjoyment that can bo got out of tho ring. In tbo past we havo been accus tomed to take our share of the circus Inten sively and not oxtenslvcly, crowding It all into a few brief weeks, hut then It was very liber ally supplied, tjulte tho other plnn Is thut of the Forty-second Btrcot circus, which will dis tribute the pleasures ovor lho wholo year. Per sons who llfco any circu-i ought to like that one, os it has many of tho qualities that cake them populur. Thero aro somo good rldors among tho men and women, as well as some acrobats who do their work with expertness and grace. Tho placo is well ventilated and comfortable. Some of the actors to play In Boerbonm Treo't forthcoming production of "Julius Ctesar" aro well known here. Mr. Trco Is to play Brutus, Frank McLeay, who was seen bore with Wilson llurrctt, will be tho Cassius and Lily Ilanbury is to act Calpumia. Mrs. Tree bat selected the small part ot Brutus' page. Tho delay in the production of Hir Henry Irvlng's new play, "Peter tho Great," may mako "Julius Coisar" tho first of tbe Important winter performances in London. "The Scarlet Feather," which was lately giv en with only fairly successful results In Lon don, Is taken from an old operetta of Lccocq's which had never been given much outsido of France. One of tho Americans who has boen a well-received feature of the cast of this play Is Thomas Senbrooke, who Introduced himself to London audiences in this play. Helen Ber tram has also been praised for singing and act ing In comic opera, where she supplanted Flor ence St. John. It is seriously announced tbnt tlio new version of "Tho Grand Duchess" pro cured for London does not contain either tho second song or the famous "riay to him." Elcanora Dubb has not been received with tho snnio favor that was shown to her in several Italian towns boforo she went to Paris. Soma of tho Italian critics havo complained that sho has gained In art at tbo cost of her naturalness and now seeks to hide by artificiality the de cline in the loss of her former Inspiration. Arthur Plncro's new comedy will bo given in Loudon nt tho beginning of Jnnuary. Tho Italian actors are highly popular in Ger many to-day. Four different companlos will play during tbo winter In Ilerlln. Mme. Itcjano has been successful enough in IlUBSla to compensate for the lack of apprecia tion bIio encountered In this country. Her audiences in St. Petersburg wero as largo as tho theatre would holu and she wns honored by tho presence of tho Czar and Czarina at several performances. The population of Marseilles has lately re belled violently against tbo withdrawal of tho subvention paid annually to tho principal the atre In tbe city. No satisfactory reason was given for the act and tbe public decided to make a dcmonittration against tbo municipal Uovernmenc. This was held In tho theatre during a performance, and tho uproar was at tended with such emphatic Incidents as tor pedoes and small bombs. But nobody was killed. T1IE SVMiAY EVEXISQ CONCERT. Pel Flaacon Iteappenranee a Triumphal Oni A Larrs Audleaee. Tho programme of the fourth concert at the Metropolitan Opora Houso lasi night contained some rather striking numbers, although as a whole the quality was high, and tlio lnrge audi ence must havo felt, with the number of encores and the character of tho artists Pol Pluncon, Eugene Ysayo, and Itaoul Pugno, were the principal ones that it had little cause to complain. Itaoul Pugno played Mendelssohn's concerto in O minor with great delicacy of shading, with fine touch, and with an appre ciation that lent a fresh charm to tbe work. Ills other number was Liszt's eloventh rhapsody. Ills success with tbe audience was remarkable, in view of tbo little natlenco which these Hunday audiences have for tho piano. Hut probably thut came from tho fact that such artists as M. Pugno have never been offered to them before. EugenoYsayo's numbers were Vieuxtemps's "Fantasia Appsslonstn" and compositions by Kess and Oulraud. He played superbly with tbe spirit and fire of tbe artist, just as ovldent in his work as the natural genius of the musi cian. Only In tho opening phrases ot the first number wus thero to be noticed any of tho can lossness which has occasionally marred his playing this winter. Pol Plnnvon made bis reappearance after nn absence of Blx months. He was rocelved with tbe cusioiiiury cnthusinm, wblrh bo Is certain to arouse, even before ho sings "Les Hamcaux" or "TheTnoOrenadlers." Tho iiudlonccs know, poscihly. that the pre liminary enthuslssm In tho best wny to bilng out these populur numbers. He sang nlso lho drum major's song from " Lo Cald" and tho air of " Pygmalion " by Victor Masso. There was one regrettable feature of tbe pro gramme, and Its equal bus scnrcoly ever been seen nn the slagenf tho Metropolitan If, Indeed, It wni erer witnessed. The audlonco wns moved to laughter by the folium of a misguided joung wnuinn who wns put before a public nc-uisttum-d to hear the best artists nf the opera iimipany.

Ills Canvlellon an Inalalaai Blim at Freedom ItFTllIn ror Ills Judge and Acenstn lUdectlons Inaplred by Ihe rale ef Ills Ompnnlans In Crime Ills Umrlns, William Carroll Woodward, tlio fnmoui card sharper, who Is now In tho Tombs awaiting sen tence for attempting lo blackmail a New York man, continuei to assert bin Innocence to every one who calls upon htm. Woodward It not to prepossessing a mini In jnll at when he is pur suing hit astonishingly varied methods of earn ing a dishonest livelihood. It Is the fashion In tbo men's prison to wear neither collar nor necktie, and he hat fallen In with the fashion. Ho wears a closely cropped beard on the end of his chin; with this, and bis slightly prominent eyes, he looks very much llko the thin type of German saloonkeeper who It plctnred in tho comio weeklies. This, it Is hardly necessary to say, It not the traditionally proper aspect for ono who hat cheated his fellow men on every continent. Nover beforo lias ho been convlctod ot any of the crimes of which ho has been accused by tbo police of many lands. Claudo Duval and the classic scoundrela of tho Middle Ages make a mean and paltry showing for audacious v'lllnlny when their deeds aro eompnrod with thosoof Woodward, tho nineteenth century American. Ills nrthns been finer than theirs. Whore they had recourse, to bludgeons nnd the show of pis tols, Woodward has relied on the deftness of his fingers in handling cards and exchanging pack ages; he has used tho facial control of an actor In simulating and conconllng emotions. Some of his feats havo suggested hypnotism, but he laughs nt tbo Intimation that ho possesses any thing of hypnotic power. Ho enmo down the winding stairs from his cell wi h the peculiar swinging stride that is tho most marked characteristic of tbe man. Uo cbnngcs hit face, his manners, and his modo of speech ntwlll. Hut of tho peculiar Bwlng In his walk he has never rid himself. It is not tho strut of a braggart, but rather the confident, certain swing of ono who despises his fel low men because all his life long he has been nolo to fool them to tho uttermost. Tho blow ot hit conviction has knocked somo of the off hand jauntlness out ot him. In place of tho sneer ing, almost open rldlculo with which ho has re garded tbe law and tbe courts heretofore, tbero has como over him a sullen deflanco that Is very noarto suggesting fear. He has not lost bis nerve. He Is as brazen in his assertions ot in nocence and of contempt for his accusers at ever. He Is not afraid of the law, he says, but ho Is horrified by tbo maladministration ot It. "My father and my grandfather," he ssid with angry indignation, " fought nnd bled for this country that liberty might not perish from tho earth. Now I am deprived of my liberty by n jury of my peers on the ovldenco of an export witness thero nre liars, you know, and damned liars, and oxpert witnesses on the evidenco of an expert witness, who, by tbo very fact of his employment, must manifestly have been prejudiced against mo. Becauso ho thought, or Bald ho thought, that I had written a corlaln letter, I am to go to Sing Sing. I am no angel, but I toll you honestly that I am ab solutely Innocent of this thing. It cost my ac cusers $50,000 to got me here, but some day," and his voice grow as cold and stern as that of a Judgo pronouncing aontence, "my turn will como. I will tako my placo bcsldo the man who accuses mo before that heavenly court ot Justice, whero St. Peter is the keeper and God Almluhty Is tbo Judgo. Thero will be Justice without expert witnesses they will all bo in belli Why. think of ltl Expert witnesses aro permitted to do their miserable work under a constitutional form of government! Isn't it a ridiculous farce t But It Is moro than ridiculous. It is an insidious blow at tbe freedom of the republic." woodward was very solemn; ho did not seem to be looking at his Interviewer at all, but at a point lutir way throucn the prison walls. When be spoke of St. Peter and tbe Judgment scat, thero wus not. a trace of sanctimonious twang In his volco; it was rather nslf be wore talking to himself without earing whether any one elso took note of what he was saying, Itwatnotas if ho wero striving to make nn impression, but as ir his religious views fell quite Incidentally Into tho general lino of his talk, which was alto gether of tho shameful injustice of his conviction. Ho was convicted, be it re membered, of manufacturing a scandal about a reputable citizen, in the hopo that the citizen would rather pay blm to keep the scandal quiet than go to tho pains of dis proving It. Mrs. Steele, in "On the Faco of tho Waters." In describing tbe methods of tbe actor fakirs of Indiu, "tho many-faced men," tells bow these men, when assuming any particular disguise, transform themselves, not only out wardly, but mentally and spiritually. Into the characters they would imlUte. In other words, thov make themselves believe, for the tlnio being, in their own impersonations, just as a llttlo boy, after telling tho sumo lib tenor flf ti en times, comes to believe that be Is telling tbe truth. Their extraordinary succoas In fool ing people. Mrs. Stcelo says, tbey bellevo to be the result of the psychological Influence of their own self-deception. When tbey are completely unconscious of deceiving nnybody, hut are Btmplv living out a chnrnctcr tbey havo as sumed, they awaken no suspicion In thoso whom they would deceive. So far as one can tell any thing at all about the Inner consciousness of Wtlliam Curroll Woodward, bo uses the meth ods of the men of many faces. Apparently, ns he sits In tho Tombs lament ing his conviction, ho is quite convinced that ho Is a martyr to cxDert testimony, nnd that ho lsa God-fearing, reverent man. In court tho other day, during a lull In the proceedings, he rose, put his hands Into his trousers pockets, and sauntered out toward the gate that leads to the street. So natural was tbe action, so free from any apparent consciousness of Irregularity, that the guard stationed beside Woodward to watch hlui did not notice It. Tho guard at the gate, however, makes it un lnvnrinble rule tostopovory man whose face nnd business ho does not know and to cull tbe attention of the court ofMcers to blm before opening tbo gute. Without any apparent suspicion that Wood ward ought not to ntss through, the gateman stopped him and called to Ihe court otlleers. as usual. They saw tbo prisoner wuitlng with grave, courteous Impatience for the guto to be onened; they leaped nt him. Woodward's face did not fall. He lifted his eyebrowa as If sur prised at their excitement. " Why." he ssid. in tbe most matter-of-fact way In tbo world, " what n ridiculous mistake. I thought It was Ihe wny to the prison." Jiut itisrair loassumo manor once ai lease a glimmering of respect for tho cold, formal machinery of law found Its way Into Wood ward's mind. Twenty j cars or so ngolawwas an open moi Lory lo him. Ho won ono of forty notorious swindlers and robbers who mot nightly In a saloon near Sixth avenue and Twenty-fifth street. They openly derided the judiciary und tho police; a man who went to jail, thoy said, wasoltliora fool or was "dopey" under the lutluenco of drugs. Thoy nindu a mutual agreement that If by any slip or mlschanro the Inw should lay Its hands on tin in, Ibey would help one another out. Of that iiuoer compnny, according to the records of the police, Handsome Joe Howe Is in MojaincnsuiL' prison for buncoing a farmer out of !i0,O00.

"Well, I'm a lnundryman," said Frank Walsh, "but I know as much at that myself. Nothing can move unlesB it is pushed or unless It is moved by a ghost, und then it can bo draggod by invlsiblo hands." "Get down to tho beginning of the story," t.ald tbe landlady, Mrs. Taylor. "Get down to it," tald the other boarders In chorus. "Well," enld Walsh, "me and mo roommate Mr. RoddelL went to bed early. Neither of us aro drinking- men. Just as mo clock struck two I heard a squoak that woke mo up. Then I listened. I heard another squeak. I listened gain, and heard 'Squeak, squoak, squeak So I turned over on mo other side and look toward tho wall where tho squeaks wore coming from. Wo had a light burning dimly In thu room. 'Squeak, squeak, equeak. It cams again. Then 1 snt up lu bed. nnd by the dim light I saw my hat movo. 1 had hung it on a peg on the wall. I saw It. shiver and then jump aown from tho peg and roll under tho bed. 1 sat up on mo pillow. A mlnuto later the wall shook and moved a little, and then tho bureau turned around and moved a couplo of feet toward the door. I wot euro I was awake, but I began to feel shaky. Then tho wushBtnnd begnn to movo. It got up on ono leg and then on tho other and sort of waltzed toward the foot of tho bed. Just then a big section ot the wall came walking toward tho bed, and I couldn't stand it any lonscr. 1 just dug Mr. Ileddoll In the ribs and whispered: "For God's nake, got up, tho room It dancing around." Ho woko up, rubbed his eyes, and asked what wns tho matter. I sold, 'Tho wall Is moving, don t you see ltl' Then ho jumped out of bod. and wo saw a live hand reach over toward tbo bureau. Both of us run Into tho hall nnd darted downstairs shouting. All tho other boarders woke up and flocked Into tbe ball on every landing. Toby Green on the floor be low, came out In his nightshirt with a lamp in ono hand and a revolver in tho oilier." "There's where I como Into the story, said Mr. Reddell. "I told Mr Green that something had happened up on our floor and asked him for tho revolver. He banded it to mo nnd I led I tho wny back to shoot the ghosts. All tho other boarders wero out in tholr night clolhos shouting. Thelndy boarders got in tho front rooms and shouted 'HelpI Murder!

It had been nailed up for years nnd had been plastered ovor by w all paper, so t hat it looked llko a portion of tho wnll. Going around through the hall I opened the doorlondlng to tho room that adjoined our room. I found two men In there. One was hiding near the foot of tho bod and tho other was crouched in tho corner be hind a bod sheet. Tho bed In tho room had not been ocenniod. Then 1 concluded that tho two men had broken Into our room by forcing back tho nailed door and pushing asldo the bureau and wasbstand In our room. So I covered both men with tho revolver and accusod tbem of burglary. Ono of them said ho wasn't afraid of no gun and challenged me to shoot, Tho other said if I dared shoot his pal he'd kill me. Well, Mr. Green, Mr. Walsh and the other bonrders crowded into the room and we nil finally jumped on tno two men. -men wo nsu a clraus of a struggle. In tbe meantime tho lady boarders were Khouting nut of tho windows, yelling 'Murder!

Then In rushed a cop. ' Tbe cop was rollccman Edward O Neill or the East Twenty-second street station. Ho wns Btandlng at Oramercy Park, a block away, when ho hoard tho women boarders shout "Murder! Police!" "I just ran as quick as a cop could run," said tho policeman, in telling his end of tho story. "I didn't even stop to breathe. I got Into the hall of tho house and through tho lino of nlzht sblrted boarders till I got to tbo top floor, where nil tho noise was. I found tho two bur glars being pummelled, nnd all tho boarders so excited thnt thoy wero about lo leave tho game, so I Just nailed the two of tbem and that set tled It. Thov Bhowed me how the two men hart moved -ho wall, which was really a door with big nails In It, and charged tho men with burglary. Thon I marched tho two of them to tlio Btatlon house. Tho landlady Identified one of tbem as a man who had recently como to board there. He'sald his name was John Mc Enroe. She had never seen his compnnlon before, but be;snld his name was John Norton nnd gavo his address as the Old Trco lodging house at 342 East Twenty-third Btrcet. Norton said that ho haa pone to the houso for tho pur pose of sharing McEnroe's bed, but nelthor ho nor McEnroe had slept In the lied, because tho bed clothing was not disturbed. Walsh and Reddell mado a ohargo of burglary ngalnpt tbem in the Yorkville Court to-day. and they were held for examination. I know ono of them to bo an ex-convlct, and they ovldoutly hired the room In the boarding houBO for the purpose of robbery." "Yes." said Mr. Walsh, "All of the hoarders have bcon robbed during tho lastfowdays. I had my wcok'a wages stolen from my room, to gether with a revolver." "And night beforo lost I had a gold ring stolon," said Mr. Reddell. "And last week I had my gold watoh and chain stolen," said Mr. Greon. "But I thought I wnB In n trance when I saw tho wall move." added Mr. Walsh, "and nny one would think that wny If be woke out of his Bleep and saw the furniture waltzing 'round tho room, whllo tho wall was doing a two-etcp."

Tbe dog has or had a deep bass voice and he delights in causing an Icy sensation to run along tho suinoof any person bo may tee, but for bicyclists he reserves his most enthusi astic efforts. When a wheelman rides past Mr. Walker's bouse tbe dog, whose name is Pet, makes so much' nolso that nil tho neighbors rrowd tn the windows to seo what Is up, and the bicyclist violatee the ordinance against scorch ing. On Saturday afternoon a soldier from Fort Slocum rode up Parkview avenue. Pet saw hlra and set nftor him with as mui h nolso as horould make. Tho neighbors hurried lo tho windows, expecting to see the bicyclist bent double over his handle bars. Instead tho soldier rode nt n ordinary gait, apparently inviting tbo dog to entch up to him. Pot acoeptod tho im plied Invitation and approached tho sol dier. When the doe wss at a proper dlstanco the soldier drew bis pistol and waved It In the nlr. Pet wns not frightened by the display of flrnnns. nnd went nearer to tho cornier, snrlnso, in fsct, Hint the soldier. In waving his revolver, struck tho muzzle ngnlnst Pet's nose. The dog opened Its mouth and tried to bite off the end of ihe pistol. All this time the dog had been making enough nolso for forty. When Pet closed his Jaws on the soldier s re volver, tho soldier pulled tho trigger. Thu sound of the explosion was iouowcu uj bhcmi-b. The bull bnd out the dog's vocal cord n. Tho soldier rodo nwuy smiling. Mr. alker. dis turbed by the unusual quiet, ran out and picked up the dog. He carried It Into bis bouse nnd sent for n dog riorlor. Tho doctor said that Pet'a voice might be per manently Injured. Mr. Walker says he will make the soldier compensate him for tbo loss nf Pet's voice. Tho soldier Is keeping quiet about the matter, like the dog, Tho neighbors don't say anything. Nudrton Death at Hotel. II. S. Van Decarr, 73 years old, of Stockport, N.
