Julius Cahn wdll present "this clever comedian. Harry Brown, in the suc cessful comedy, "David Harum," at the New Haven theater to-night, Prl tfay and Saturday nights and at the matinee Saturday at the regular popu lar pricea While the compliment ipaid "David Harum" in one of the New England towns last spring was not intended to toe of the left-handed va riety, It played havoc with one scene and came near ruining the perform ance. The town in question contains several big mills, the owner of one of them occupying with-his family a box at the theater on the night of Mr. Brown's performance lof Harum. As nearly everyone knows, the horse trade t:o capitally described in the ib'ook, is made th efeature of the open ting act of the play. During this trade the iold gentleman leaned on the rail of the box with one hand behind his ear, so that he might not miss a word. When the bay Worse that "had n't, a scratch or a pimple on him, was sound and kind, a lady could drive him as well as a man, and he would stand without hitchln' " was brought lout, his enjoyment of the scene wau Intense. Finally, when Hiram -parted with the horse to the deacon for $200, he uttered a loud laugh. Enitrely ob livious of his surroundings, he gave his knees a resounding slap, and turn ing to his wife, exclaimed in a voice that was audible in the gallery: "By jinks, I've done the same thing my. lelf." The shout lof laughter that greeted him was of terrific volume. The scene came to a stop, and there it ha dto remain for what seemed an age to the people on the stage. It re quired all of Mr. Brown's skill to get the attention lof the audience back to the play. Even when he had the at tention of the audience there would float through the house the sound of a half-smothered laugh, which would be taken up by the rest of the au dience. As for the old gentleman, he tried to hide himself behind the cur tains of the box, remaining there until the performance was over and the house empty of an biat the attendant!? and his familt:.

A wealfch of beautiful, realistic scen ery is employed in depicting the .va rious scenes of locale in which the action of the play takes place. The portraying company Is .one of excep tional merit. "THE CLANSMAN." Viewed as a stage product, "The Clansman" is one of the roost power ful dramas ever put on the American stage. Such scenes as the parting of the lovers, Ben Cameron and Elsie Stoneman, in the third act, would alone be sufficient to carry any play to success. The power of the play an a play is proven by the enthusiasm with which it is received in the north as well as in the south. Theaters are built and plays are produced for those wfo'o pay their mioney at the box office and without the support of the public no play can be a success. The remen hous business done by this play in every section of the country shows what is the verdict of the people. Poll's New Theater.

Or premeditated ca3es of brute assas sination there are several remarkable instances on record. They manifest the faculty of contraivance, of motive and of inductively assimilating cause and effect, which, if not actually human reasoning, comes perilously near to it. I have more than one record of that character, says a writer in the' Pall .Mali Gazette, this Instance, for exam ple. A few years ago I was on a visit to a Westmoreland clergyman, and was accompanied by a favorite Scotch ter rier. It made itself agreeable to every member of the family but one a large Newfoundland retriever dog, who showed subdued signs of jealousy. One day both dogs disappeared and were absent from the house more than two hours, when the large ona retnrneri home alone. I was anxious about my own and went in search of it, and passing through the village I met a gamekeep er whom I knew well, carrying it in his arms, the poor brute being soaking wet and in a very exhausted state. He re vealed' the cause. While sitting on the bank of a river about a mile from , the parsonage he saw the two dogs, appa rently out for a friendly ramble, ap proach to the waterside on the other side; they lay down close together, and in a few minutes he was astonished to see the big dog suddenly grip the ter rier by the back of the neck and leap Into the water with It. There In about two feet of water it deliberately stood and held the terrier under the surface. My friend saw that there was nothing but death for my dog, but as he could not cross the river without going around by a bridge nearly a quarter of a mile away, he fired a shot close to the head of the would-be canine assas sin. That startled it and, letting the terrier loose, it sprang to' the bank and bolted home. My friend then ran around by the bridge, and when he got up to the scene ot the merltated mur der found my dog lying on the bank In a very exhausted state, just having had strength to crawl out ' We have here motive, contrivance to realize the motive and skilful deliberation in the operation, and if that Is not reasoning, I should be glad of a definition of "rea soning" -which would exclude such, a performance. . 1 . I have records of a similar nature In all cases the outcome of jealousy, and mainly manifested among mam malia of primary gregarious habits, es pecially the family iCanidoe. That aris es from the early fierce struggle for life, more especially the struggle over prey. As a matter of fact, although the dog was the flrst wild animal do mesticated by man, it still displays several of Its far off prehistoric traits of wild life, and this Is one of them; rounding and worrying sheep is anoth er. Jealousy over food or partial favorit ism to others is rare among the cat tribe, and their leisurely consumption of food Is another striking trait of their ancient habit of solitary hunting. The habit of domestic cats becoming invet erate poachers is another evidence of the "old Adam" still surviving. It's left entirely to vou to : : It's not enough that We Good.
