His Utterances on the Public School Question Strictly in Acoord with the Policy of the Church. , St. Paul, Oct. SO.—Archbishop Ire land was interviewed this evening re garding the widely circulated report that he had been called to Rome to ac count for his utterances on public schools, at the national convention held here, last summer. "Why, it is per fectly absurd," said the archbishop. "It is false from beginning to end. Rome has not condemned and never will con demn compulsory education. Compul sory education is a matter of civil or so cial policy, and not a matter of religion. It does not come within the purview of ecclesiastical juris diction. It appertains to citi zens, not .to churchmen, to decide it.

Joseph Jefferson, says the New York Sun, does not like to be spoken of as "Joe." He believes that his age and position entitle him to the respect shown by the use of his full Christian name, and cites in his argument that Edwin Booth is rarely, if ever, referred to as "Ned." Once, while on a western tour, the comedian carried with the company a property man whose fondness for strong waters was as large as his bump of veneration was small. The latter failing led him into speaking of the star as "His Jigsteps" and "His Riplets." One morning the property man turned up at a rehearsal in a highly inebriated condition. Meeting Mr. Jefferson in the wings, it occurred to him that it would be a graceful thing to tender him an off hand apology. So leaning gently up against the comedian he remarked: "Jeffy, old boy, when one feller comes to another felle—" "Jefl'y, old boy," shocked the come dian beyond expression. "Go, sir!" he exclaimed. "Go, sir, at once." The offender went. That night "Rip Van Winkle" was the bill, and the house was packed from pit to dome. In a corner of the gallery sat the property man, looking rather frayed around the edges. The play progressed. Rip is turned out into the storm and, standing upon the threshold of his home, utters the most pathetic line in the piece: "You—you say I havo no share in this house?" Then through the silence comes, in sad and asthmatic tones : "Only 80 per cent, of tlie gross, Jeffy, old boy." The comedian collapsed. The prop erty-man was avenged. American Husbands and Gowns. A well-known uptown woman's tailor says tbat the interest the American hus band takes in his wife's gowns is amaz ing to him, an Englishman, who never saw this manifestation among his own countrymen. An English husband usually knows nothing about his wife's clothes—what they are* made of and how they are suited to her. And as for his having any voice in the selection of them, it never occurs to him any more than it does to her. But not so with the American husband. He not only knows about his wife's gowns, but he really cares about them, and he has definite and decided ideas as to what they should be like. "It is no unusual thing for one of my patrons," says he, "to bring her hus band to select her clothes for her, to su pervise the fitting of her gowns and jackets, and even to direct to a certain extent the way in which they shall be made up. "And is their taste to be trusted? Surely; I think it is often better than that of their wives. How they come by the knowledge of these things is won derful to me, for they are busy men, and in callings that have nothing to do with my own. Yet they bring to the selec tion of their wives' gowns as critical a taste and as exact an instinct as if they had made a study of fashion plates and nothing else all their lives long. They are amazing to me, I assure you."—New York Star. IRISH CIVILITY. Balfour Warned Not to Mis interpret It. Home Rule Not a Panacea for Erin's Woes.
