sought was to catch up with the regular
train, and 60, if iossille, make ttie con
nection at Council Bluffs. That ride up
the Sierra Nevadas, through the snow
blieds, and down Uie mountains, to the
desert trill never be forgotten. Once, John
Drew lias told ine, west of Ogdcn, there
was a break down. At Laramie some
vali&es were stolen from the car. Various
other thrilling incidents happened during
that exciting ride, but in the end the con
nection at Council Blurfs was made, partly
owing to the courtesy of the railroad of

pher, Jr.," which ho play.-d for firteen
weeks at the Empire. From there, he went
immediately to what was then Falmer's
Theater, now Wallcck's, producing "The
Squire of Dames." "When his time was up
at Palmer's, he went, with the same pluy
direct to the'Garrick, leaving there to re
turn to the Pacific coast and keep his
promises. When his coast tour was ov-r,
he "jumped" from San Francisco to New
York again, and after only two weeks'
vacation began the rehearsals of "Rose-mnry."
Miss Ethel Knight Mollison, the dainty
nnd winsome little lady, who plays the
role of Rodu in the 'Cherry Pickers," Ls a
young lady of much histrionic promise, as
was evidenced by her impersonation of the
sprightly ingenue in that play. She is
& Canadian by birth and last season was
with Olgn Ncthersole, playing minor roles.
Tlie wisdom of her selection by Manager
Pitou for the "Cherry Pickers" was amply
Hiown by her work during the past week.

Minstrelsy, when It is well done, may
be compared to a Bohemian supper, where
in charing dish cookery, small bottles, spicy
hide dishes and other delectable tilings
make the guests merry. Minstrelsy at its
worst is like a badly cooked "Welsh rarebit,
and there is nothing worse Mian that. Prim
rose and West, who come to the National

experience in this sort of catering, and
they know just how to do it. They do not

John L. Stoddard, with his customary sa-
gacity, has selected for one of his lectures
this year the subject of "Heroic and-Ro-niantic
Scotland," and this lecture will
be given Tuesday evening. The following
lecture is on England, and the third on the
Yellowstone. Scotland, England and the
great West are three topics which are
very present now, and nothing that Mr.
Stoddard could show us would be more
calculated to give us pleasure.
At Roman's this week will be seen a
vaudeville company, half Englith and half
American, known as the New York Stars.
Among the people who do specialties in
this company are Conway and Leland,
ii,onopedcs (which means one-legged men).
They ride a bicjele a bicycle built for

playing in New York for ICO nights, and
The original cast has been retained. Henry

The Gilbert and Sullivan opera. "Pa

oompauj, at Odd Fellows' Hall, oa Friday,
evening, for the benefit of Canton Potomac
Field Band. The stage setting and
costuming, which don't always have much
attention from amateurs", will be espe
cially fine, and people who have heard
the rehearsals say that the singing and
acting will lc equally satisfactory. Mis
Jennie Tyrer will play Lady Angela and
will sing "Girt of Gifts," by Miss "Wil

Besidesa new play or acknowledged value,
"True to Lire," the Grand Opera Douse
is able this week to present a cat of
cxcejitional value, headed by that .sterling
author-actor, McKee Rankiu, and the
talented di-bntante, Nance O'Neil, upon
whom the New York critics lavished such
praise on her recent performance in the
metropolis. Mr. Rankin wrote the play
and he has fitted himself with what lie
considers his best part, lie plays an
ex-convict, who has served twenty-four

Short Skirts for Women More in
The sharp "cling" or the steel runners, as
they strike the ice, the incessant whirr of
a thousand skates gliding along, and
the merry shouts of the skaters who are
out to enjoy the exhilarating sport, are
sounds which may be heard with rrequenfc
recurrence in the neighborhood of all the
bodies of water which are situated In the
out-lying districts ol the city.
The small boy turned out en masse
over a week ago to seize the glorious op
portunity, so infrequent in Washington, Tor
outdoor skating, and as the cold weather
continued the adults joined the crowd.
Soon all the enclosed bodies or water as
well as some parts of the river, were
covered with a multi-colored crowd of
The favorite spot for the pastime is the
lake right back of the Monument, known
as the "Basin,'-. the cast bank of which
Is that sunnner delight or the small boy,
the swimming beach. But now the diving
boards serve only as seats upon which
the skater rests while he fastens his
skates, and around the raVtmpon which
theswimmers in their scanty costumes used
to rest the colored gentleman who hires
out skates from a chair on ruuueis, now
plies his noisy trade.
"Heah yo ah, set rite down in de 'Lady
or de Lake,' '' and "Duh 'Parluh' is duh
place to hab yoh skates fas'ned on,'' are
some of the cries that salute the ea'r.
And the men reap a rich harvest from
their skate hire during the few days that
the skating iabts. Here, too, may be
found the vender of everything citable
which Is at the same time cheap; from the
penny sausage to a bag ot popcorn.
Out across the basin ah far as the river
the ice is dotted with skaters, singly and
in groups. Here a pair of fancy skaters
are "showing off" to an admiring circle of
bystanders, and there a beginner on the
steel runners is blundering along in an
attitude which, UkeMr. Winkle's, "neith
er gracctul nor swan-like."
Further out may be. seen a thick crowd
or men and boys who are playing hockey
and are doing their best to drive the
punk toward the opposing goal.
Every once In a while there is a mix-up
and when the crowd disperses a mass of
fallen players slowly disentangle them
selves amidst the laughter of the specta
tors. Pretty girls arc out in force, too, and
lend the necessary dash of color to the
picture. A few skate well, but for the
most part they hang onto the arms of
their escorts with frightened eyes, while
the latter endeavor to initiate their fair
partners into the mysteries of the "Dutch
roll" or backward skating.
A noticeable change is the increasing
prevalence or the regular skating costume
or golf trousers and stockings for men
and short skirts and leggins Tor the ladies,
with colored sweaters for both. These
costumes give a picturesque effect to the
scene, which Is watched by a great many
Poople on the banks watching the con
tinuously changing picture which, in truth,
is a most beantirul one and well repays
the trip to the beach. Other spots where
the 6kating abounds aro Chevy Chase Lake,
and Rock Creek, but being-so Tar from
the center of the city, naturally the large
majority of skaters go to the Basin.
Theiec has been Improving all this week
and yesterday after much or the snow had
been swept away it was pronounced as
fine as Washington ever had by the older
skaters. According to present prospects
the Ice will last at least three or four days
longer, and no doubt lovers of the sport
will not fail to improve the opportunity.
it was estimated by the colored attend
ants at the baain that at least 5,000
people were on theice in the course of the

but with a beautiful figure and a face full
of sweet gravity.
"Oh, you've always said that," replied
young Mrs. Lawton, frowning at the fire.

drew out the next words in si dogged,

"What husband Is?"
"Oh, Trentyes! I wasn't thinking of

Marion Kingsland stopped rocking.
"Agnes," she said, breaking a pause,
"I don't know a husband who in public

positively gallant to his wife than yours."
"In public," bristled the other. "What

little while. There are Fatima s who do
pry, and there are Fatlmas who don't.
Thelatter have by far the best time of it
that ls, when their Bluebeards treat them
fondly and courteously. Discretion is a
wonderful safeguard to conjugal content
ment. The moral obligation with men
should be as strong as it is with women.
I freely grant 3011 that. But society does
not grant It, and in the lives of our great-great-great-grandchildren
it will not prac
tically employ any such system of ethics
unless I miserably err. It is a sjstem
talked about, written about, and, if at
some day it will be actively exploited, on
that day everybody who now lives will lie,
as I firmly believe, in graves whose deep
eat cut headstones have grown undeciph
erable blurs. The new woman may dream
her dreamsand even realize a few of thern.
But, after all, it is still a man's world, and
a man's world for many centuries it must
remain. Fatima will reap nothing by her
curiosity except unhuppiness. So many
of them live and die in blissful ignorance.

A wife can.tend and water her jealousy and

treatment, rudeness, are'all autre close.
ButI have orten taken a thoughtful survey,
Agnes, of my own eociul aurrniuidings. They
aro very mojph the same as jours, my dear.
We often meet at the satlie teas, dinners,

self, judgingaKimich by "whattheV-don'tsay

Interference with Bluebeard's key bunch."
Here Agnes sprang from her'seatby the
fire and looked tearfully.lmpetu&usiy round
the tasteful sitting-room of hC'rTriend.
"Oh, Marlon," she cried, "you tell me
you are talking generalities, but to me
they are the most piercing personalities!
And why? Because I'm not only jealous of

laughed In a sorb of hybtorle way and
pointed to a near chair. "That's one of

slipped across the room and lifted a mass
of dark broadcloth, holding it aloft.'
"Why, yes," said Marlon, raising her quiet
brows in surprise, "lie came back thi

ordered a thicker one of Strayne because or

Suddenly she paused. She had drawn
forth a lilac tinted envelope, which had
been raggedly torn open atone of its sides.
"A t Oman's hand, Marlon," she ex
claimed, "or I've neverseen one! And the
date of arrival four days back. It smells
of violets, too. Well, really!"
Marion went forward and took the note
from her friend's grasp with uncharacter

grew paler as she scanned'the superscrip

that he returned her love. Not the slight

felt confident that onhlsownside there was
a like absolution of confidence and candor.
It stabbed her to the soul 'as she thought
now that no forgetfulnoss had prevented
him from telling her of this note. They
led fashionable lives, but they led them to
gether. For all that they might sometimes
pass hours npartlheir constant intimacy
and comradery were beyond dispute.
For a few seconds she stood perfectly
still, holding the letter. Then she went to
the overcoat, which Agnes had just re
placed upon the chair, and slipped the letter
back into one of its side pockets.
She was a woman who had always been
held to possess no common share of self
command. She justified thU belief now.
"Bluebeard's chamber,'" she said, with a
smile, but it was a smilequite dim and joy
less. And then she raised one finger and put
it against her lips in a gesture that not only
symbolized silence, but enjolned.it.

knew that there, was never any pose about
