MAY IRWIN AT THE HYPERION.
Miss May Irwin is one of the most
popular actresses on the) American
stage. Each recurring season she re
turns to the cities she pjays yearly find
receives an enthusiastic welcome the
welcome of an actress who never dis
appoints her audiences. It is true that
May rvvin can lay claim to an extraor
dinary magnetism. She has a thorough
knowledge of stage effect and she has a
keen intuition of the wants of an audi
ence; but beyond all else she is a work
er of indefatigable energy. She leaves
nothing to chance, and from the time
she made her first appearance on the
stage she haa believed in but one thing
hard and conscientious work. Plenty
of this has been put in on her produc
tion "Madge Smith, Attorney," which
will be given at the Hyperion with a
good company next Thursday and

success of her career. It is replete .with
humorous dialogues, comical situations,

of beautiful girls and an atmosphere of
wholesome hilarity. Seats now on sale

WHO OUGHT TO VOTE.
A nrominent lecturer Is reported as
saying about the education of boys and
gilrs "We all aspire to the prizes, but
the girls not only aspire they perspire,
and generally get there." The recent
report of Dean Crow of Nortnwestern
University, shows that while 40 per
cent, of male students were marked
'poor," only 20 per cent, of female
ftudents were so marked during the
first semester. During the second half
of the vear. the markings were 12 per
cent, fit the men as against 5 per cent
of the women. This would seem to in
dicate not only a higher grade of schol
arship, but better "staying qualities"
in the feminine make-up.
The question oft times presents itself
to the inquiring mind, as to how long
this country will rest content to pay the
major part of its enormous school tax
for the education of its girls, and yet
excuse them from the common duties
of citizenship. Our high! schools grad
uate from five to seven girls for every
boy; now, If an educational qualifica
tion ho.s any arguments in its favor,
the extra girls ought not to be repre
sented, or misrepresented, by inferior
men. Katherine V. King.
A WORD ABOUT REV.
Amos Parker, of Madison, Wis., a
Yale man of 1884, formerly a prominent
New Haven man, contributes to the
current "Congregatlonallst" a readable
Illustrated article upon Yale university
and in the course of it he has this to
say of Rev. Mr. Twichell, of Hartford:
It is befitting, too, that the sermon in
Battell should be preached by Rev. Jo
seph H. Twichell, of Hartford., He
rowed on the crew as a student and he
fought In the -war as a chaplain. This
would be enough to secure him the ad
miration of these successive classes,
but they love him, too, at Yale for his
genial ever-youthful manly spirit.

learning should be pretty firmly estab
lished on the Yale campus. It is to em
phasize this vital phase of the matter
that the committee in charge have,
with the approval of the president and
fellows, arranged for a series of schol
arly publications "as a partial indica
tion of the character of the studies in
which the university teaehers are en
gaged." To the casual observer the most ex
traordinary thing about these volumes
Is that they are not bound in Yale blue
a bit of good taste on which the com
mittee is to be sincerely congratulated.
They are of uniform octave size, print
ed in large type on heavy paper, and
bound in serviceable blue-green cloth,
with the Yale seal on cover and back.
Already twelve volumes have appear
ed, and most of the remaining thirteen
will be ready before October 20.
The series is scholarly rather than
popular; not many of the volumes will
find their way into the circulating li
brary; but for the scholar and the
scholar's library they ape indispensa
ble. In subject-matter they cover
nearly then whole Hold of university
study the philosophical sciences, in
eluding language and literature; math
ematics and the natural sciences; his
tory, economics and phychology. The
president of , the university, standing as
he does at the head of all the faculties,
and representing the sum and aim of
all these studies, opens the list with a
book, not on his own specialty of econ
omics, but on "The Education of the
American Citizen." ' This is, perhaps,
the volume of the whole series, which
will appeal most widely to the alumni
of Yale, and to all who believe that
higher education Is the surest support
and safeguard of American citizenship,
The remaining' volumes are all tech
nical. Among those dealing with the
ancient languages and- literature, the
most notable are: "The Great Epic of
India," an exhaustive study of the San
tkirt yedas by Professor E. Washburn
l-iopKins, 'roressor wnuneys buctob-
sor in the chair of Sanskirt and com
parative philology; "Historical and
Critical Contributions to Biblical
Science," by members of the Semetic
faculty; "Life in Greece in the Homer
ic Age," by Professor Thomas D. Sey
mour; "Chapters on Greek Metric,"
by Professor Goodell, the scholarly au
thor of the Greek commemorative ode
which will be sung at the celebration;
and "Principles and Methods in Syn
tax" by Professor E. P. Morris, of the
department of Latin, and general edi
tor of the series.
Coming to the domain of Romance
scholarship we have "The Gallego-Sas-tiliah
Court Lyrics of the 14th and 15th
"Centuries" by Professor H. R. Lang;
and In the department of English "Bib
lical Quotations in Old English Prose
Writers" by Professor Albert S. Cook,
and the first installment of a 'work by
Professor Lounsbury called "Shakes
perean Wars." All students of Eng
lish know how ably Professor Louns
bury has treated Shakespeare's great
predecessor, Chaucer. The general field
of philology is further represented by
"Lectures on the Scientific Study of
Language" by Professor Hans Oertel
and "The Elements of Experimental
Phonetics,' 'by Professor E. W. Scrip
ture of the psychological laboratory.
Eleven of the thirty volumes com
posing the series deal with mathematics
and the natural sciences, and several
of these are the work, not of an in
dividual professor, but of the entire
staff of one of the scientific laborato
ries. The two volumes of "Research
Papers from the Kent Chemical Labo
ratory" Include also the work of grad
uate students. The laboratories of the
Sheffield Scientific school are repre
sented by volume under the editorship
of Professors Chittenden, Wells, Pen-
field and Pirsfon. In the group of
scientific writings we notice also "A
Short Treatls on Vector Analysis,"
edited by Mr. E. B. Wilson from lec
tures. by the venerable mathematician,
Professor J. Willard Glbb, F. R. S., and
"Light" by Professor Charles S. Hast
ings. Yale has nlways been especially
strong in the departments cf economics
and history. Professor Sumner has
contributed a text book on "Sociology;"
Professor J. C. Schwab, secretary of
the bi-centennial committee, has writ- '
ten on the "Financial and Industrial
Conditions of the Confederate States of
America," and various members of the
faculty of law have prepared a Joint
work entitled "Two Centuries' Growth
of American Laws." .
A university has two main functions
the training of citizens and the dis
covery of truth. The assembly of
alumni on October 20 -will show what
Yale has accomplished in one of these
directions; the Bi-centennial publica
tion shows the measure of her power
to fulfill her second duty. It is pe
culiarly appropriate that this series of
scholarly works should be dedicated to
the graduates of the university. It re
mains for the graduates to show their
appreciation of the honor and their loy
alty to Yale by finding room for the
prrlos on their library shelves, or by
presenting it to the public libraries in
the various towns where they live. hTe
series is published by Charles Scrlb

General H. B. Carrington Before the
Franklin County (Ohio) Bar.
The Hyde Park (Mass.) Gazette of
Saturday last contains the following
article, which will be of much interest
to many. In this vicinity by reason of
the fact that General Carrington Js
widely known here: '
At a memorial meeting of the Frank
lin County (Columbus) Ohio, Bar, on
Saturday, September 21, in tribute to
President McKinley, General H. B
Carrington, with one exception the only
surviving member of that bar in 1848,
but -now on the army retired list, and a
resident of Hyde Park, closed brief re-
marke a follows:
'Forty years ago, when I parted
with you for other duty, the very ex
letence of this Union was In peril. To
day we meet in the shadow of another
solemn ordeal. And yet, through &
widening rift in the great Borrow cloud
that has dropped tears all over the sen
tient earth, there seems to gleam a su
pernal radiance from the Great White
Throne. Between earth and sky, the
Incense wave of heartfelt prayer has
filled all space; and even although the
Almighty Father did not spare to us
the bodily presence of the beloved Mc
Klnley, He did bring his children to
His own presence; and a people at the
footstool of divine grace and mercy
shall never be sent empty away."
"Brethren of the Franklin County
bar! Two thoughts seek expression be
fore we part. The first is this: The

"My other thought is this: The
mightiest nations of the world realize
at last that one common foe is under
mining and endangering all social order
and all domestic peace; that ambition
for physical preponderance must yield
to the demands for a common self-defense,
against a deadly foe; that they
must speedily converge their might
against this lawless and godless ene

procity and charity, or they will chal

"It is thus and just now that we must
take inspiration for the future. The
rumbling wheels, the heavy tramp,
tramp, tramp of our citizen militia, the
solemn dirge, the floods of tears, the
heart-aches and the sighs of last week
are still above and around us, never to
be forgotten. The nation has felt ' a
sudden Jar, as if the Supreme Director
of all things had for a moment set a
break upon our progress, perhaps to
check the impetuous rush for gold and
greed; but the nation will move on to a
perpetual and world-wide destiny if, in
companionship with God, and never
without God, it shall make righteous
ness the spur of its progress,and the
ideal goal of its race."
The Ohio citizens and papers gave
cordial welcome to their former citi
zen and adjutant-general, who put the
first twenty-six regiments Into the field,
and who, besides commissioning Gar
field, Hayes, McClellan, Rosecrans and
others, mustered the late president into
service. They recall the fact that be
sides thirteen regiments of volunteers
and eight regiments of militia thus
promptly placed in the field, on May 6,
1861, he issued a general " order, No. 16,
referred to in Appleton's Annual Cy
clopedia, distributing among the coun
ties an assignment of one thousand ad
ditional companies, as a reserve, which
large force was afterwards summoned
to verify his prediction of the duty of
Ohio, to have one hundred thousand
more men ready upon demand. His
prediction, telegraphed to Secretary
Cameron, that "the result, however
long, would be certain that Ohio had
corn enough ahead for a year, and
would go to the Gulf if necessary," was
no "crazy utterance," as some declared,
but an estimate of duty and ability now

DEATH OF PATRICK FARRELL.
Comrade's Account of Popular New,,

The following letter explanatory of
the recent sad death cf Patrick Farrelt '

My dear Mr. Farrell: Will you allow,'
me, as one of his comrades, to add a
word to the captain's letter felling you-
of the sad death of your brother, Pat-
I Joined the company last summer,
while Farrell was in the United States. .
Where he had ben sent on account of
sickness, and so did not know him until
he rejoined the company last January,
He was exceedingly popular and was a

back, you would have realized howl
much every one liked him.

looking you up in New Haven and in
telling you more fully of your brother's '
last days. ,
As nearly as I have been able to flna
out, the circumstances of his death!
were as follows: The -boat in charge of
Corporal Heekerman was coming down 1
with the tide when an Immense swarm :
of bees attacked the whole party and
stung them most viciously. The men
jumped overboard and thong most ofj '
them hung onto the outriggers (a pecif
liar device attacked to those native" v,
canoes to keep them from turning over)
your brother struck out for the snore.
He almost reached it, when to the as-
tonishment of the other men, he turned
and struck out for the opposite bank;
The river is here only two or three
hundred yards In width, and as Patsy , ' t
was a good swimmer, no anxiety was
felt. When the men all got ashore he
was mfsHino' flnrl thon niiMtlnna werrt

him about mid-stream swimming fovL,
the shore and apparently all right.
Many natives have been dragged to
their death by the alligators in the past;
so we have come to the Conclusion that
Patsy met a like fate, for no outcry of
any nature was heard by any of thei
men with himj at the time.
His death has cast a shadow over'
the entire company and none of us will
soon forget our kind-hearted, Jolly an4
willing companion. -"
Again extending1 to you and yours q)
great deal of sympathy; believe me
your brother's comrade, i'
