Among her costumes (Mrs. Siddons always ap Hearing in annrnnriata attira durinir her read ings and recitations) are some of tbe finest that . nave ueen seen on tne stage lor years. J.ne sale of seats for the entertainment, which takes place at Lafayette Hall, Friday evening, December 18, will commence at 8 o'clock to morrow morning at It. S. Davis & Ca's station ery store. No. 96 Fifth avenue. If Mrs. 8id dons'slast performance here may serve as an indication, it would be well for those desiring seats to call early. Singe Whispers. Mrs. Bbowh Potteb, as Juliet, and Mr. KyrleBellew, as Romeo, is on the cards. - Sats a Southern humorist: "Mrs-Langtry bas secured her divorce. She now has soma ex cuse for going on tbe stage." J. Habbt Rows and company will produce Othello at Youngstnwn, O., December 21, Can ton, O., December 25, and Akron, O., January 1,1890, under tbe management of James Col lins. Mr. Rowe will be supported by Charles Fischer as logo, James Durham as Cauio, Lottie Veazey as Detdemona, Sadie Rigbyas Emilia, and J. Harry Rowe as Othello. First impressions go' a long way, and al though the New York public and press pro. Bounce Mr. Charles Wyndham's performance of "David Garrlck" pleasing and painstaking, they avow their preference for him in, light comedy. By the way, Mr. Wyndham and Miss Mary Moore, on tpe termination of their American tour, will once more appear before a Berlin audience playing"The Headless Man," under tbe direction of HerrLantenberg. Emit A Axbahi. ber husband, Ernest Gye. and Francesco Tamagno, the Italian tenor, all arrived from Europe last Monday. They wilt at once proceed to Chicago, where Madam Albanl and SIgnnr Tamagno are to open tbe present tour in "Faust," , Tbe company, is one of Henry E. Abbey's enterprises, and u booked for four weeks in Chicago, after which tbey will fill engagements in Mexico and California, Madam Albanl will not appear In New York until the end ot the season a the Metropolitan Opera House. "On! these American critics," cries 'a London paper, "what a wealth of expression tbey bave at their command. For instance, one enthusi astic scribe finds that Mrs, Kendal's charm ii in some sense beam.' We have heard ot a lady's cbarms being described as 'crummy,' but we have to confess with the deepest humilia tion tbat 'beamy' is a term of admiration to tally unknown to us. Stay, tbe author of 'Alice in Wonderland has written some never-to-be-forgotten verses commencing with Come to my arms, my beamish boy.' Tbe beamy and beam ish doubtless mean one and the same thing, and aro evidently meant complimentary." Manages Gulics, of the Bijou, Instructed Mr. Tim Carroll, ths scene artist, about a month ago to prepare some special scenery for the engagement of Miss Clara Morris, and Mr Carroll In so doing excelled all of ils former efforts. There Is a parlor set that is said to be tbe finest ever seen in Pittsbnrg. Iuvas draped under tbe personal supervislou of Mr. Gullet, and tbe scenery and draperies certainly reflect credit on tbe management of tbe popular Bijou. A well-known manager remarked in Cincinnati last week tbat there would be a fence built around the Bijon next season and It was getting to be such a money-maker that It would be called R. M. Goliek t Co.' National Bank, Geoboe Esoab Moktookebt thinks it awfully hard for a newspaper critic to tell the truth. He writes in the New York.Jffrror; To assume tbat a newspaper critic can rise to the frigid dignity ot absolute truth Is to assume tbat be is eager to suffer tbe torments of a partyr.

Two memberaofthe "Fascination" company, says the Jff'rror, hato been causing tbe rest of tbe organization mu,eh wonderment, Tbey are Gus Cook, who plays Xord Sam, and Harold Russell, who plays Lord Eily. Ever Since the beginiilpg of the season, as soon as tbe curtain touches tbe stage after the seoond aot, these tyro actors bave placed their hands upon their hearts, bowed in a stately manner toeach other and tuen walked majestically away. This amused the company for a long while. First one notlued ir, tben another, until finally it ceased to amuse, and began to excite curiosity- At last one of tbe company Inquired ot Mr, Cook the meaning ot tbe pantonumiq actjon. "We only wish to show that we bear each other no malice," he saltt, "as you know It Is my most unhappy duty as Lord $am to throw Mr. Rns sel about tbe stage at the end of tbe act. My entreaties to the stage manager to permit me to leave this out are of no avail. What, then, shall I do to show Mr. Russell tbat I bear him no malice? in Europe, and In Fran'ce, especial ly, whan the actors fight a duel on tbe stage, tbey bow to each other when tbe curtain falls to show tbat there Is no 111 feeling. Perhaps our oonduot will reach France, and we will some day be made members of theComedio Frau calse." PICTURES AND PAINTERS. Mb. A. Bbtaw Waix, who bas been sketch ing among tbe mountains for some time past, was expected to arrive home last evening. One of tbe finest works in tbe way of an etching tbat bas been published for some time past is that entitled "Breaksrs," by Otis Weber," a picture tbat shows a splendid effect ot curl ing and tossing wares. A number of small water-color paintings by Mr. D. B. Walkley are shown at Mayer's. They are small pictures, very cleverly handled, as are most of Mr, Walkley's efforts In this line of work. The subjects are all of a simple charac ter, indeed tbey should be called studies, rather than complete Dictures, but tbey are Just such bright little bits of eolor effect as are unsur passed for landing an air ot brightness and cheerfulness to a room, "Maqnolia" is the title of a work by Mr. James R. Woodwell tbat is really a marine view, consisting as it does of little else but sea and sky with bat a glimpse of distant shore. The picture is a very pleasing one with an effect of calmness and repose; tbe waters stilled be neath a quiet dreamy sky. Mr. Woodwell's happy faculty of combining a few simple forms Into a striking and effective nlctura is seen to advantage in this work, which, slight as it may seem, bears evidence of very careful study. Mb, Wrxii S. Reynolds exhibits a painting at Gillespie's in which the degree ot technical excellence Is scarcely in keeping with the character of the subject The scene repre sented is tbe exterior of a small cottage shown in the midst of a wintry landscape. Near tbe door of tbe cottage may be seen tbe figure of a little girl who. apparently Is experiencing some difficulty in making headway against the force of the wind. Tbe subject is a good one, but it is too hard and stiff In handling, and is too meager of detail to make an effective picture. Mb, Geoeoe Hetzel has a very pleasing little landscape exhibited at Boyd's. In re spect of composition, the work is unique and of a character quite different from the class of subjects usually chosen by tbis artist It Is neither a woodland scene nor yet an open land scape, bat partakes somewhat of tbe nature of botb. In tbe foreground are some fine old trees, and looking out from among them the eye travels over green and sunny fields until the view Is again obstructed ,py others in the distance. The handling Is in the stvle with which all admirers of works by Hetzel are familiar, and it has been carried to a consider able degree of finish and elaboration of detail. Light and shade form an important feature of this painting; in fact light and shade and com position constitute its principal features as a woik of art, and their being so well managed Tenders the picture a very effective one. It Is not every day tbat we can obtain a glimpse of a fine work by Henner, and when one is accessible, it is worth while to go out of our way to see It. Pictures by Henner are rare, not so much because be does not paint as rapidly as tbe average artist of equal ability, but because there Is scarcely another to be mentioned with so pronounced an individuality of style. His work Is noted tor its strength and richness ot coloring, and also for a peculiar type of face tbat is seen in no pictures but bis. The face is an uncommon, almost an Ideal one, and in spite of tbe fact tbat he works at differ ent times from various models, be always man ages to Invest his pictures with tbe same pe culiar characteristic's. An excellent example of this artist's work may now be seen at tbe Gil. lesple gallery,where it will undoubtedly attract a great deal of attention. The style of tbis work is very much like that ot tbe old masters, tbe color being noticeably after tbe manner ot Titian. That Mr, Fred Busman, tbe well-known vocal teacher, has on several occasions given evidence of a considerable degree of ability as a painter, botb in tbe matter of native talent and acquired skill. Is a fact very well-known to bis numerous friends; and if any further proof could be required, it is furnished by the pic ture which he bas at present on exhibition at Boyd's. Tbe sublect of tbis painting, which is a large-sized work in oILIs a sceno on Point creek, near Scalp Level. The spot Is a familiar one to visitors to that picturesque locality, it being situated but a few minutes' walk below tbe village, and lsoneot the most easily ac cessible points in tbe famous glen through which the waters of tbe creek finds its way over a bed ot stone. Mr. Busman is accustomed to take up bis brush and palette In such odd moments as do not interfere with the pursuit of bis profession, and tbe picture in question Is one noon which he has worked in this man ner at different times during tbe past two years. THERE are two pIcturesbyMr.H.S.Stcvenson shown at Boyd's. The first Is an excellently well-handled water 'color, and is unquestion ably as fine a work or Its class as this artist bas ever produced; tbe second is in oil. and, though possessed of some good qualities, is by no means one of Mr. Stevenson's best efforts. The water color referred to is a landscape showing a broad stretch of level country, bounded in tbe distance by a belt of trees, and tbe foreground com posed of a luxuriant marshy growth of long, rank grass. The whole effect of tbis work is artistic; it is good in composi tion and has been very effectively handled. Tbe subject of tbe second picture is a sbady spot beside a small stream where a woman and a young girl are seen engaged in washing clothes. This picture is better in conception than execution, and would be still more effect ive if the two trees were not so nearly alike, and from a technical standpoint ot criticism. It would be improved by being brongbt to a higher degree ot finish and a greater elaboration of detail. These are two works by the same artist, between wbich there is no comparison as regards the satisfaction they afford tbe beholder. In examining the one we are impressed with a sense of fullness and completeness of tbe work being finished and the story fully told; when looking at the other we become aware of a sense of vacancy, of something wanting, and we feel but little in ducement to prolong qur study, since all that is to be seen is on the surface and may be taken in with even a hurried glance. amono other aifflcrfltles that artists have to contend with, tbe fading and otherwise under going alteration to wbich certain pigments are liable Is very well known and understood, but few persons oatside of the charmed circle of artists or art students are aware tbat la addi tion to tbis falling certain colors bave tbe qual ity ot destroying each other in mixture. Many colors tbat are perfectly safe if used alone or in mixture with the majority of other pig ments in general use, are latal to the harmony of a picture If used together, for they will quarrel chemically as sore as acids and alkalis, If tbey chance to come in contact with each other. Thus, orpiment is destroyed by white lead, and a brilliant green produced by an ad mixture of cadmium with emerald green changes In tbe course of a few weeks' time to a dull and dlrty-looklngtintof color, vastly dif ferent from its original condition. White lead, a color in almost universal use. and one tbat will probably continue so for the reason that nothing has been found or is likely to be found tbat artists will accept in its place, nothing that is found so satisfactory in working, and nothing with wbich tbe artistic effects can so readily be produced; bat, for all tbat, white lead is a color that can not safely be mixed witn all other colors, and even when used alone It turns yellow with age, or blackens if it comes In contact with sulphuretted hydrogen gas. The whites made from zinc and from curomate of baryta are almost perfect chro matically, tbat is, tbey will neither turn yellow nor blacken under any ordinary conditions. But both of these pigments are too thin and weak, and tbey lack tbe pecnliar richness of white lead; they bave not sufficient body for solid painting, and few artists can be induced to use tbeni throughout a picture, but tbey compromise and use lead in those positions least likely to suffer from exposure.

The comrades of AUeghepy county are to be congratulated that their distinguished guest, Commander In Chief Basse! A. Al ger, and the other honored geutlemen whose preseneq was ipcideut to the General's visit, were so royally entertained. Of all the en tertainments accorded General Alger in his travels in different sections none equaled that of Allegheny connty. The General appreciated tbis fact and our county is proud and happy. The reception at Old City Hall was not ai large as was expected or as it would have been had.it not been for a misunderstanding growing out of the published announcement that General Alger was to arrive on Thurs day and (hat the reception would take place then. The audience was a representative one, however, and an enthusiastic, one, duly appre ciating the excellent addresses. Tbe speechesat the ball were well covered In Jresterday's papers. Captain William McClel and officiated admirably as chairman. Com' rade W. A. Patterson delivered the address of welcome. General Alger delivered tbeprinci. pal address; hli position on tbe pension question will ,be commended by every trne and loyal citizen of these great United States. Assistant Adjutant General JamesMeCormick, Assistant Quartermaster General H. W. Williams, General Logan's son, John A. Jr., Department Commander Stewart, Chill Hazzard and National Junior Vice Commander Lovett, of New Jersey, the Invited guests, all talked Interestingly. After tbe audience bad shaken the band ot General Alger, tbe distinguished comrade, with tbe invited guests and a few local Grand Army celebrities, repaired to the Hotel Doquesqe, where a banquet, the grandeur of which Is seldom eclipsed, was tendered tbe Cammander-In-Chief. The table was beautifully decorated with tbe choicest flowers; tbe menu was on a plane with the finest, and the responses to the appropriate toasts.were indeed crawl. Comrade A. P. Burcbfield ably officiated as toast master. The toast, the "Grand Army ot tbe Republic" was responded to by the guest ot tbe evening. "Tho Department of Pennsyl vania" was the toast assigned Department Commander Stewart, and we all know his vigorous, happy and encouraging style. Major J. F. Dsnniston talked about the "Working. Comrade" in his usual excellent manner. The "Fraternity ot the G. A. R.," the "Volunteer Soldier," ana the "Soldier and Civilian" were responded to re spectively by the comrades from the bencn. Judges P. H. Collier, J. V. Slagle and J. W. Ower. John A. Logan, Jr., made response ti the toast "Our Sons ot Veterans." An elo quent response was mads to the toast tbe 'Loyal Women of 'pl to 6S" by Comrade Chill W. Hazzard. Comrade James McCormlck talked touchingly about "Oar Fallen Com rades." Tbe deserved applause bestowed upon tbe sneakers was liberal. Ths banauet closed. wltb "Auld Lang syne" about an hour after . JUIUUIgUW Much credit is due the Committee on Ar rangements, Comrades Edward Fisher, J. L. Graham and Max Klein, for tbe success of the affair. The Reception Committee was com posed of Comrades A. P. Burchfleld, William J. Patterson, J, F. Dennlston, Thomas G. Sample, William McClelland and A. C, Frank. Tbe banquet card was very pretty, tbe menu, toasts, etc. being on separate cards, neatly fastened with a red, white and blue ribbon.

Tbe ladies of tbe Grand Army of Circle No. 82. are bard at work arid it Is questionable whether anyone entering Slater's Rink daring the continuance of tbe entertainment will get out as rich as he en tered, except for goods. Tbe motto Is to let no man gnilty of having a dollar escape, and It will be acted up to, as tbe post needs the money badly, having bad such a heavy mortality within tbe last few years, which, if It continue at the same rate, will render tbe organization almost extinct in a couple of years more. The relief and burial funds are consequently in need ot recuperation. . A Tonclilna Meeting. Charlie Howe, who lost all his relatives ex cept a brother in the Johnstown flood came to Pittsburg, was refused assistance by the Re lief Committee and helped by tbe Ladles of tbe Grand Army as a soldier's orphan, is now doing well.

The event was a grand reunion of the large and extensive family ol "dolls," and, arrayed in most bewitching toilets, were all relatives of that well-known family for three generations. Grandparents, par ents and children. A great deal of cariosity was evinced by the spectators to see the "beauties" of tbat family, which is renowned for its handsome members, and they were all there, blondes and brunettes, ond, like all beauties, were not averse to being gazed nt If they are at all inclined to be vain the admiration ex pressed on all sides must roost certainly have turned their cunning little heads, A great many of tne young ladies' dolls were invited by tbe little folks' mammas to visit them daring the coming winter.jo it is very likely a large delegation of the lamily will grace private social gatherings daring the season.
