Vernon, Va., Washington's home. The second : act ts laid in the corridor of the New Wil lard hotel, Washington, D. C; the two ecenes in the third act are the apart ments of William Hopkins, a United States senator, and a publlo square In Pawtucket, R. I., Bhowing the unveiling of a monument. George M. Oohan appears as a young American, whose father (James Bel erave) is desirous of marrying him off to the daughter of an English lord in order to establish a social standing in London, where he has decided to reside'."' The young man refuses to listen to the match-making scheme and is disinher ited. He then takes the name of Wash ington. He becomes known as George Washington, Jr., and meets the niece of Senator Hopkins, a southern girl, and asks for her hand ifi marriage. Hop kins tells the boy that he can never give his consent until he has proven himself worthy of the name he has chosen. The young man agrees not to broach the subject again until some one has erected a monument of George Washington, Jr. James Belgrave, his father,' is a man of unscrupulous Ideas and has amassed a. fortune by promot ing get-rlch-quick schemes, and soon he, too, Is a member of the senate and has gained the enmity of Hopkins, who has openly denounced him before the house as a disgrace to American poli tics. Lord Rothburt, the father of the girl Belgrave has chosen for his son's wife, is to become interested with him In a ten million dollar swindle, and It is upon these terms that he offers his daughter's hand in marriage. The plot thickens, but has a very Jubilant end ing. There are nine musical numbers throughout the play. Each song helps to toll the story. Among them are: "The Grand Old Rag," "Bred in Vir ginia," "He Was a Wonderful Man," "If Washingtoa Should Come to Life," "I'll be There With Bells on," "The Wedding of the Blue and Gray," "Nev er Been Over There," and several oth ers, all of which were written and com posed by George Cohan..

The mast notable event of the dra matic season will unquestionably be the appearance In this city February 2, at the Hyperion, of Mme. Sarah Bernhardt and her entire company of French ar tists from the Theater Sarah Bernhardt in Paris. Mme Bernhardt recently Inaugurated NEVER INTENDED. Man Prevents the Intent of Providence. We do not believe that Providence, which placed us In a world filled with countless delights, ever intended that we drug ourselves, bring on diseases ' and live cheerless, unhappy and pain filled lives. " ' On the contrary, the Joys of each day should make us look forward with pleasant anticipations to the coming of the next. Without health this is im possible. We have, to an extent, the power to command that health. A' lady writing from Meadville, Pa., pays that for twenty years she was a great sufferer from headaches (which Were frequent and confined her to her bed for twenty-four hours at a time) ftnd kidney troubles; that she employed Numerous physicians from time to time end took much medicine, but got no help-, that one doctor said her spine was afflicted, another that her sufferings came from female weakness, a third that her eyes brought it all oh her, etc, etc., but that when the truth was reach ed it was found that her coffee drinking habit was alone responsible that she was "coffee poisoned-" So the good Samaritan told her about Postum Food Coffee and she determin ed to quit using' the old Jclnd and see what the new would do for her. She consigned the medicine bottles to the trash barrel along with the coffee can ister, and began to drink Postum. "At first I did not like it," she says, 'but when I learned how to prepare it I found It a most agreeable and refresh ing beverage. I soon began to feel bet ter, the headache grew less and less frequent and severe, my sleep became natural and restful, and now, after two fears' use, all my troubles have disap peared, ' including the affection of the kidneys, of which I was at one time tnost apprehensive. "My weight has Increased twenty-two pounds. 1 "I wish to speak within moderation, but I tell you the truth when I say that life looks bright to me now, and I could tot If I would, and would not if I could, ive up Postum and go back to the old ini of coffee again."

Blaney's most .successful drama, "The Curse of Drink," will be the at traction. This is said to be the mdst wonderful scenic production of the year, Mr. Blaney having invested a very large capital in the soenic and mechan ical equipment. The story of the play is that of an engineer who is addicted to drink, a violation of one of the rules of the rail road for whioh he works. He has a daughter who is loved by the son of the president of 'the road, who has made him become a fireman so that he can thoroughly learn the railroad business. The daughter is also loved by the vil lain, the superintendent of the road. Handy hires four accomplices, who trap the girl and place her on the tracks In front of the engine which her father drives. She is rescued by the young fireman. The old engineer, through will power, succeeds in controlling the de sire for drink and becomes the superin tendent of the road. The superintend ent is a victim of rum, and in the last act trieB to poison his family and guests, who are celebrating the Christmas holi day. One of the great scenes is where the villain meets Peggy Edwards, the girl he has ruined, in the "Barrel House." The scene where the girl, degraded by drink, offers a ring, the only keepsake and remembrance of her mother, for rum, teaches a strong lessos and brings out the evil that rum does as no play heretofore has done. THE CONFESSIONS OF A WIFE At the New Haven theater the first three nights of next week, including a Wednesday matinee, A. H. Woods pre sents '.'The Confessions of . a Wife," a melodrama written and staged by Owen Davis. In the development of the plot there are several thrilling situations which hold the audience in suspense until its enthusiasm sweeps it into ap plause. It is the stcy of a wronged woman who- passes through fire before she attains happiness.. The effect of the river scene ts novel. A New York express train In a blizzard is effective, and it is no exaggeration to state that the .view of a cornfield in the last act equals the famous lettuce-patch scene in Leah Kleschna.

The Astronomlsche Nuchriehten for November contains a new theory of the sun and stars by Professor T. J. J. See, United States navy, the astronomer formprly in charge of the large tele scope of the Naval Observatory in Washington. The new theory is worked out .by .mathematical methods, and Is revolutionary In more ways than one. Dr. See starts but by showing that the matter of the sun is reduced to sin gle atoms by the enormous heat to which it ie subjected, and that no pos sible chemloal combinations can take place In the sun. (Even hydrogen, oxy gen and nitrogen, which make up our air in the forrii Of molecules composed of united atoms, are split apart by the sun's heat. This Is called by Dr. See the -monotomic theory. ;. It was first touched upon by the American astronomer, Lane, in 1869. Professor See has revived and extend ed Lane's neglected work, and given the whole theory of the sun a mathe matical form. Some of the principal points In Dr. See's theory are as fol lows: .. . ' ....... 1. The suri ) wade up of single at oms, and the central density is exact ly six times the mean density. This is described as a new law discovered by Dr. See and veraled .with great labor. It applies to all the fixed stars as well as the sun, and Is thus a general law of nature. Tables are given, and also curves showing what the density is at every point of the sun's radius. While the density at the centre ex ceeds that of iron and turns out to be Identical with that of German silver, near ihe surface It becomes excessively small. One-tenth of the way down to the centre the density to only one hun dred and fifty-three times that of a!r, and at the surface the density lies hex tween one-tenth and one-hundredth of that of air. 2. It is shown that the temperature rises with enormous rapidity as the sun's mass Is penetrated, becoming at the centre fifty million degrees centi grade. The heat Just below the photo sphere is shown to be nearly half a million degrees so Intense that the light and heat are driven through the earth's atmosphre. In this way Dr. See explains the sun's surface radiation without the use of convection currents, assumed by previous writers. They have uniform ly held that hot currents come from the depths of the sun, while cold cur rents sink after their heat is radiated away. Dr. See does away with all this complex theory. . ' '3. The pressure is shown to Increase downward In the sun at a tremendous rate, becoming more than fourteen bil lion atmospheres at the centre. Imag ine a column of mercury erected from the earth one-sixth of the way to the sun and pressing throughout as a col umn of quicksilver does here at the earth's surface-and you have an idea of the pressure at the sun's centre. In addition to this pressure It has a tem perature of fifty million degrees centi grade. The mean velocities of molecules are shown to Ibe three hundred and forty flve miles a second.Even near the sur face the pressure Is great, and there fore circulation of surface matter mak ing up the prominence must be quite shallow. At one-tenth of the way to the cen tre the pressure Is two and one-half times that at the centre of the earsth, and the matter therefore much more rigid than the armor plates of a battle ship, though only one hundred and fifty-three times as dense as air. 4. Professor See calculates the total amount of heat stored up In the sun, and shows that when a star or sun Is made up of single atoms only one-half of the heat developed in condensation is radiated away, while the rest is stored up- Hence it follows that one half of all the heat produced by the sun since eternity is still stored up for future radiation. This leads to the conclusion that the future duration of the sun will be at least three times that of the past. Some scientists have supposed that the sun's light and heat are beginning to fall, but Dr. See shows by calcula tion that the sun's activity Is still ris ing and that we have as yet by no means reached . the zenith of glory in the life of the solar system. This con clusion ,is verified and applied to the stars of, the Milky Way, and he shows that their brilliant light is due to this accumulation of heat within their flam ing globes. When we look upon the stars at '&3(EftHLST' TOURISTS COATS and Rain CoatSy made from short ends of our best materials, on xnew Spring Models.

Hence the future duration of the universe will be immense and ' the stars are by no means dying out as some have sup posed. ' ' - , . 5. The contraction theory propounded by Helmholtz in 1854 is extended by Dr. See, who shows that the annual shrinkage in the sun's radius is about twice what He'lmholts originally calcu lated, being seventy-one metres per an- num, in place of thirty-five metres giv en by Helmholtz. Professor See gives an equation fat the sun's diameter whioh he says will hold for a million years. Jn that time, the sun will shrink one-tenth of Its di ameter, which could Just be perceived by the naked eye. , . - PRESBYTERIAN UNITY. Another Significant Step Toward Uni fying the Evangelioal Church. In the union of the, Northern and Cumberland i Presbysterian congrega tions another significant advance has been made in the unification of the evanelical church. Dqotrinal differ ences of essential Importance have kept the two branches of Presbyter ians apart for nearly a centvtry.and it is probable that before the final rati fication and announc ement of the union a full one hundred years will have marked the chasm 'which will then be closed forever! This grathcation unification of ' the members of ; the same conftregational family has an important hearing upon religious sentiment and marks a trend of thought that is working slowly, per haps, but not the less surely towart harmonizing divergent views of a pure ly doctrinal nature and eliminating factionalism that grew out of times more turbulent, when material - pre judices swayed the hearts of men. Odd as is the fact, baldly out, yet de plorably true, the church as represent ed in various congregational divisions has been laggard in those influences that should wipe out the rancor of in terneolne strife. Politically and socially the fullness of peace has been reached In the church alone, where we -should look for the initiative, has there been delay in acknowledging the brother hood of all Americans In Christian fellowship. The rock upon which Presbyterlanism split in- this country a hundred years ago was the doctrine of predestination and other matters involved in the or dination of ministers. Extremists ; held to the creed of Calvin, to which some of the newer ministers of faith could not fully subscribe. The disaffection in the ohurch led to several important separations upon purely .doctrinal dif ferences, until 1858, when the political storm clouds began to presage the de luge, of blood that was to mark the period of the Civil War. It was then that the united synod of the- Presby terian Church South was organized, with 100 ministers and 200 churches, but this synod Joined the general as sembly of the Southern Presbyterian Lchurch at the close of the war. The first sign or returning narmony In the much torn Presbyterian church was when, in 1866, the two Northern assemblies met in St. Louis and for Clear Out Sale 200-REMNANTS-200 UPHOLSTERY GOODS Silk Damasks, Brocades, Goeblin and Ver-. dure Tapestries, French Crctones, Silk, Linen and Cotton Velours, Corduroys, ctc.

At this meeting committees -were appointed to consider plans for uniting the Northern branches, and this was accomplished in 1869.

When the final consolidation is effeoted it will . mean the olearnlng of the clouds thai hav hung over this ohurch and have torn It repeatedly into divisions and factions since the beginning of the Christiwre' nal. ' - ' " 5 , YALE'S ATHLETr FUND. The statement that Yale has a fund of nearly $100,000 saved up from Its football income, during recent years, will be a surprise to some and welcome news to all. They need . money for boathouse, improved seating arrange-., ments for baseball and football field athletics, ets., (a stadium or something like that,) and to tide over a possible gap in the receipts which would result from ) a suspension of the Harvard game! The idea that there is a storm in New Haven of which Walter Camp is the center . is absurd. There e.re critics of him, as of all men who have enjoyed long success. But Yale Is too canny to molest a machine 'which works so well In Its interest as that . which he has constructed and manages. They like the football game down there pretty well as it is. But they see ths need of some reforms for public inter est, if not for local advantage. Theiy will take heed, however, that it is not spoiled and will be found pretty solid behind Walter Camp in protecting it. Waterbury American.
