So small a thing as the turning out of
the gas by the gas man, who was sleepy
and wanted to go home, put avtop to
the felicitations of the season after the
last performance of the grand opera
last spring.
The touching off of tho gases this
autumn is the signal for Its commence

Is once more ablaze with light. Light

In the very home of grand oiwra. New
York builus hotels lor opera goers, she
provides elegant carriages to convey
them back and forth, sho has built the
finest grand opera house in the world
and her citizens spend a fortune annu
ally to bring the sweetest singers of the
world here. This year the subscriptions
for the boxen amounted to $5u,0(Ju more
than last ear. What n fortune truly
must be the whole stun which New York
provides aumtali) !
Gr.tnd opera iu New York now is not
like the grand opera of tue oh: tvmiu
as It used Iu be, as it is now. In the
home of Wagner musicians do not sit
calmly in -a bundle in the orchestra and
play their sweet notes for a sjiilllng,
limiting audience to appreciate or let
alone. All, no. They play to be heard,
to be applauded or to be bitterly con
demned. In the old days a musician who plajcil
a false note might ej,pect to be set upon
by the foremost of his infurlati-d listen
ers and dragged from liis seat in the
orchestra. Iu the first moment of wild
rage, his coat, his hair and even his
precious instrument might suffer dem
olition, while by his side a musician
whose sweet strain had risen In soloic
harmony above the others would be lift

til iKirne triumphantly back to his seat
with his brother musicians.
Yet, wittuilltl.oapathy of the New World,
with all Its Indifference, its chatting, its
merry making, and its carelessness, New
York Is today the greatest home of grand
opera in the world. It makes Ihe oiiera
what It should be, an entertainer, an edu
cator, a means of tocjal delight and moral
benefit. And to prove that it is nil these
things i t brings loget her night ly t he "sho w"

Money kings frequent the grand opera,
too. They pay thcruoney.assomebody said,
and the high professional people do the rest
Certainly the money kings putuptbemoney
by the thousands by subscription, by bid
ding, by contribution, aud by private
method', until tbegrand opera is an assured
thing; and when they boast it in their midst,
none prouder than they that their efforts
are appreciated by the men who are not the
traslnes-i force of the country, but Its
brains and dignity.
People who come to New York for a
night at tho grand opera arc lost in the
absolute marvel at the faces they see.
"Why, I am in the Senate halls," they ex
claim, as their eyes rest upon a man whose
voice In Ibe Senate Is a familiar sound.
"Yes, and herels the House of Representa
tives Look at the faces. Are they real,
or are (hey wsx figures come lo stay In
the boxes for the season as additional at
tractions to the music? Look at Erlcel
At Morton! At AThitneyl Yes, and at
Cornelius Bliss! And" The rest is lost
as the panorama of faces spread out beore
them. It is like viewing'an illustrated edi
tion of the bulletin boards of the world.
Not a face is lacking.
It is said that io go to the Metropolitan
Opera House and have a scat In a parterre
box for a night Is to insure one's position
In society In fact, there is a certain well
known lady who introduces her protege In
this way: "Come with me to the opera
Monday night. You will then know every
body." The quick succebs of the protege
after tills general introduction argues for
the verity of the assurance.
Everybody knows everybody else in this
queer maze of boxes. Llko little coops they
rise ono behind the other, and each o'er
topping the last by a little way. Between
them is a little velvet upholstery, a few
heraldio designs in gold and silver, a little
gold scrollwork. But all are together. Word
is exchanged freely between the boxes, and
thcownersot the different ones comeand go
without regard to tho box whlih they may
or may not own. Tho fact that they are
inveterate opera-goers Is enough. For this
sociability many go to the opera. Tirst for
the sociability, then for the music.
Levi F. Morton Is the most confirmed, the
most inveterate of opera-goers. It Is said
when asked to take tho nomination for
governor, he replied: "But I shall miss
my place at tho grand opera."
THE MORTON BOX.
The Morton box is parterre box No. 1C,
and it Is filled every night of the season
by some of the members of the governor's
largefauilly. Mrs. Morton never Ic.tvcslier
husband for long at a time, hut the two

capital, where (he gubernatorial diitien

to remain over night.
Last winter Mr. Morton c.ime down one
blizzard day, mid for hours he drove
through the city. Here and there, tip sloops
and ilimii steps, into high buildings ami
through long ones. But ecr burning on!
Two cabmen from the Metropolitan Club,
where the Governor gets his carriages,
were tired out, but still the Governor hur
ried on. "What's your rush?" asked a
rrlend as with a hurried grasp of the hand
the executive leaped into his cab.
"Gut to gel through by night going to
the opera," called back this Inveterate
uiera-goer.
During Mr. Morton's long stay in Taris
he went Just as regularly awl knew almost
as many FrenUi politicians a here.
Another politician opera-goer is William
C. Whitney, whose parterre box, No. 30,
will lie graced by himself this jearand his
.family. Mr. Whitney has a way of gather
ing up people who have no special boxot
their own, as well as the so who 1 ae. Tor

He gather-, botli society people and pro
fessionals. Mr. Whllncy may be called the father of
grand opera in America because he, inorl
than any one else, encouraged Its first pro

box was empty, or without its original

the Secretary will be nightly in its place.
Calvin S. Hrice, that wonderful man who
has come from a final! beginning to flrt
rank politically and socially, is another of
s i hhlswireand
daughters he Is nightly in place. He Is a
singular appearing man, always singular,

S. Urice, looking at hlininhlsboon oneof
the opening nights of the opera, exclaimed
"Look at Cal. Ilrlce! Looks as if he had
been born iu a dress suit and broadiloth.
He is a gentleman of the stamp that does

If one were screened from the stage and

When the boxes fill on opening night
It Is a grand sight at the opera. The
lights are twinkling brightly, the air is
perfumed with the violet spray that Is
sent from the compressed rubber machinery
around the house,- filling every chink nnd

Music, heavenly maid, was young in
New York about one hundred years

old Park Row Theater, upon the pros

from a small matter to a high-priced,

In the early twenties of Uils ivntury
Mr. Clay was appointed by the legislature
or Kentucky a commissioner to Virginia to
ask of that State that a commission be
appointed to make a definite line of de
marcation between the two States. Upon
his arrival in Richmond he was received
with great court ey by Its mostdlstlnguished
citizens. He said that his profession, pol
itics, aud affairs of government had oc-f-nniisl
his time so exclusively that he was
aware of knowing little. of polite liters- I
ture, or the favorite publications of the
day. This prompted him to ask an old
friend whom he knew to be a literary
man to select some lines to introduce i
when addressing the legislature, as a
quotation expressive of his feelings to
the State of Virginia, as his birthplace.
His friend suggested a stanza from Scott's i
"Lay of the Last Minstrel," which he highly
approved, and memorized.
The day appointed for his address found
the galleries, halls, and every available
space crowded with eager, expectant aud
itors, and many beautiful women in bright
attire gave brilliancy to the scene. He
held the attention of bis audience with
entire success until he came to the part
where he meant to Introduce the quota
tion. Then his niemiTy failed him. The
shock was appalling for a moment. He
stood rigid nnd pale before a thousand
watchful eyes, in Ills mind only a blank,
before him a turbulent sea of upturned
faces. Witli a characteristic gesture he
threw up his hands to his forehead, and
in his mint sonorous tones recited the fol
lowing words:
"Brealhes there a man, with soul so dead.
Who never to himself hath said.
Tills Is my own, my native land!"
concluding his speech amid deafening
applause.
Every one present had supposed that he
was overcome by emotion, and none but

tion for him perceived the cause of his

Some of the young women of Maine are
seeking fnmc by the same methods that
have proved m efficacious in tho case
of elderly ladles, remarks the Konnebeo
Journal. North Clinton has n young
widow who milks three cows, does th
work for two in the family, drives three
miles ami does a day's work, returning
home at night in lime to milk, mend the
socks, feed the pigs, split the wood. etc.
Then Cannnn has a smart young woman
who, besides doing the housework for
quite a large family this fall, did th
milking and look all the care of two cowt.
the hugs, chickens, horses, etc., picked
fourteen bushels or apples, put them In
the cellar, pulled two stacks of beam,
and hauled In three loads of pumpkins,
and, after digging and picking up fifteen
bushels or potatoes, pulling thirty bushels
of beats and turnips and tweuty-five head
of cabbage, put them all in the cellar her
self. Such undertakings nre bad enough
when necessary.
