Janauschek's Lament A Story of an Owl Club Actress and a Bouquet. Men and Women and Sullivan Billed A Once Great Actress Takes a Wrong Point of View—How manager Mor ris Got His Bouquets'— News Notes and Personal Gossip. "Time lias proved what I prophesied years ago—that the legitimate drama is dying out. This past season it almost breathed its last." That is what Madame Janauschek wrote recently in a letter to the editor of the New York Dramatic Mirror, in which she also denies that she will re tire this season. Madame makes a mistake. It is not the legitimate drama which is dying out, it is madame herself. That may sound a bit brutal, but truth is very seldom pleasant, though it is said to be beautiful. At madame's last appearance in this city, there were those in the audience who had seen her ten and fifteen years ago. Perhaps even longer. Then she was a good actress. Not a genius, not a Rachel, nor a Cuhman, but a good actress. Those who saw her when last here regretted their presence, and de plored her want of judgment in still ap pearing. But she will not give up. She announces that next season she will for sake her usual repertoire and play in a sensational light comedy-drama; she says she is through trying to elevate the stage and will give the public what they want. It is the same old story. Few of us learn it in time to save ourselves mortification. This is the age of tomorrow. Those who live in yesterday must receive buffets and be elbowed out of the procession. The death of the San Francisco Alta was a casein point. You who read this may be another example. It is not a ques tion of age as regards years, but as re gards the ability to keep abreast if not a little ahead of the tidal wave of progress which is always rolling ahead, it is hard, tiresome work, and it is more profitable to one's self and to others, when the struggle becomes too exacting, to drop behind the crest into the smooth water. The legitimate drama is all right. It is full of vitality, and it will live for ever, because it is founded on truth and vivified by art. Its form may vary ; it, like all forms of art, has no use for a straight line; it advances in a winding path, the curves of which are so sweep ing sometimes as to give the impression that it is going backward, but such is never the case. Poor humanity is the only factor in art which does retrograde. It is hard sometimes for an artist to realize that the highest point to which their talent can be developed has been reached ; that they have finished going up hill and must go down. That is what is the matter with Mme. Janauschek. That is not the matter with the drama, however. One of the women who played in Caste the other evening at tl«e opera house received a bouquet over the foot lights, about which there is a little story. "Who is she?" asked Mr. Morris, the manager of the Men and Women company, who sat beside the Herald reporter. He was told. "Ah! that's too bad. She's the right sort. She'll make an actress. I'd get her an engagement at a good figure any time. I'd like to send her a bouquet." "Do it." advised the Herald. ' "I will," said Morris, and off the two went to find a flower shop. They found several, but they were closed "for the evening, and the manager waß about to give up his intention, when in walking through the lobby back to their seats, the two saw a number of those nuisances called "floral tributes" piled up in a chair, waiting to be handed over to dif ferent members of the company, who were designated by cards attached by ribbons to the flowers. The Herald man had an idea and a malicious one it was. He whispered to Morris. Both smiled. The latter said : "I'll do it." He pulled a card from his pocket, wrote a few pretty phrases on it, and called one of the ushers. A short conference took place, during which a couple of big silver dollars changed owners, and the usher was given the card, which later took the place of the one attached to the bouquet by the real '"•I'ler, and Mr. Morris the next day re f>leasanl note of thanks for his 1 his blossoms, d was originally on the Oh! that got lost in the shL.,ie.

Kennedy, Le&ie Allen, Orrin Johnson, J. C. Buckstone and R. A. Roberts. Men and Women is by DeMille and Belasco. The theme of the play involves SIDNEY ARMSTRONG. a defalcation by a trusted officer of a bank, the bringing of the bank to the verge of ruin, the trial of an innocent man on suspicion, and the final confes sion of the guilty party. This point of the plot cannot of course convey much idea of the absorbing nature of the play. One scene alone, the third act, which illustrates a midnight meeting of the bank directors, together with the trial FRANK >IORD AUNT. »y them of the suspected criminal, is lescribed as being almost painful in its ntenstty. The season will begin on Wednesday veiling and includes a Saturday mat- inee. On Friday evening the company will give Diplomacy. JOHN L. SULLIVAN. On Friday evening Honest Hands and Willing Hearts will be given at the Los Angeles theater with John L. Sullivan as the leading man. The play is one which gives the champion plenty of op portunity to display his physical points. In the second act he appears in ring costume and gives a short boxing exhi bition. The critics elsewhere differ as to the pugilist's qualities as an actor, but it is certain that the desire to see the most perfect known specimen of man physi cally, will insure a large attendance. The play will be given Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings. notes. Ed J. Buckley is very ill in New York. Lily Post has joined the Carleton company in Washington. Arthur Wallack, a son of Lester, has written a farce comedy for Fanny Rice. It is called A Jolly Surprise. Mrs. Padelford that was, who now calls lerself Bettina Gerard, is now with a heap opera company in Texas. Stuart Robson recently played a ben efit' performance of the Henrietta in New York for the Confederate Veterane camp. M. A. Kennedy, the principal com edian in Men and Women, starred through this section of the country sea son before last in A Possible Case. The veteran comedians, Joseph Jeffer son and W. J. Florence, will tour the coast next season. They will appear for a week at the Grand next February. Louis Harrison, who was the original 'yfoo in Pearl of Pekin, has been en ;aged for the Crystal Slipper, and will ie seen here the last week in October. George W. Thompson, who was here last week with Katie Emmett, was one of the founders of the order of Elks. The first lodge was composed of three members. E. A. McArdle, a Los Angeles man, and lately business manager for Dixey, has gone to Nicaragua to erect a theater there. Be will organize his company in New York. It is reported in San Francisco that Augustine Daly is negotiating for a lease of the Powell-street theater. If he suc ceeds he will probably put a stock com pany there. Bernhardt was unable to give her matinee performance in Honolulu owing to the steamer being six hours late. There had been nearly $5000 worth of tickets sold. Lily Lanetry has blown in all her heatrical gains in trying to manage a .ondon theater and is announced to lave "retired" to the seclusion of St. ohn's wood. There will be at last accounts about one hundred so-called farce comedy com panics sent out on the road the coming season. Yet they say the day of farce comedy is over. Can such things be? According to the Dramatic News, Whiting Allen, well known here as the advance for Carleton, is doing the same act for Forepaugh's circus. Carrie Perkins, who was here first with Dixey's Adonis as the "Merry Lit tle Mountain Maid," and later as the chorus in Seven Ages, is to marry, and will marry a singer. Wilson Barrett has again failed as a manager. This time it was the Olympic theater of London which took a fall out of him. Mr. Barrett is too good an actor to be a happy manager. It will be rather good fun to see Marie Wainwright do a catch-as-catch-can wrestling match with Varney in her play of Amy Robsart. She is studying with a professional athlete, who is doubt less envied by many amateurs. R. E. Graham, otherwise known as Bob, the General Knickerbocker of the first Little Tycoon company, which played here, and the Don Bamborela of the Sea King company, has been made the father of a boy. Mrs. Graham is Mamie Cerli. The Lilliputians, who come to the Grand in July, will be a permanent at traction at the Thalia, in New York, next season. It is said that Williard Spencer, the author of Little Tycoon, will bring a comic opera company to the Orpheum, in San Francisco, for an indefinite run. The Owl club goes on the circuit dur ing the week of June 15th, under the direction of Treasurer Mansfield. The Cart of the Marchioness will be played y Lottie Beaumont, as Mrs. Beane has gone north. Miss Beaumont is a pro fessional who has recently located in this city. The first stop will be River side. Ramsay Morris, who looks, after the interests of Men and Women, and who is the author of Crucify Her, and The Tigress, a book and play which made sensations in the east, will have a new novel fresh from the press in September next. Shortly aiter a new play from his pen will have a New York produc tion. Odette Tyler, who made a hit here in in Shenandoah last year, and whose name was mistakenly mixed up with Theo. Hardee, recently a shining light in Los Angeles' 400, plays a most im portant part in Men and Women. Miss Tyler is a most charming and estimable young lady, brilliantly educated, a su perb horsewoman, and comes from a dis tinguished southern family, her real name being Bessie Kirkland. The Herald drew attention last week to the way companies from the east cut down their force, divested themselves of special scenery, and skimped wherever possible before coming to the west. This sort of thing was done by the Katie Emmett company last week. In Kan sas City they had a real fire engine, drawn by a team of horses, but when they left for Los Angeles the engine, horses and a lot of big properties were left behind. PICK UPS. Word comes from Bakersfield that a social revolution is in progress there which threatens the entire upheaval of the early traditions of the place. It was all brought about by the managers of the Southern hotel importing from the east a steward, whose strictly enforced ideas of dining-room etiquette have brought down on his head the scorn and con tumely of all the old settlers. One day not long ago one of Kern county's principal men, who is a rough diamond as far as the outward marks of civilization go, but as rich as he is rough, came into town and, having reg istered at the "tavern," took off his coat and entered the dining-room to en joy a "square meal." The dude steward met him at the door and with a bow and much politeness, said: "Excuse me, sir, but there are ladies in here and I cannot allow you to enter without a coat. I will look around and try to borrow a garment for you; but really—." . "Why? blank blank you, you white livered tenderfoot," shouted' the irate pioneer, "I can buy this hotel twice over! What in h—l do you mean, any how? I suppose you will be wanting us to wear diamonds and put on one of them d—d claw-hammers next before we can feed! This place is getting too rich for my blood." And he straight way transferred his custom to another and less pretentious hotel. Tbe steward still insists on the guests of the house keeping their coats on while "feeding," however, and the good old people of Bakersfield are justly indignant. GOT ONTO HER CURVES. My Nanon's curves were all her own; At least, fo I believed, . Until, one day, where surf-waves moan My mind was unueceived. A FRUSTRATED SQUEEZE. "What is the matter with your arm, Mr. Rusher?" said Sarah Coldleigh as the gay young man with whom she was sitting on the sofa made an attempt to encompass her waist. "N—nothing that I know of," replied the embarrassed Rusher. "Strange," said she, "I thought it was dis-located." And it took jast ten min utes for Rusher to see the point. AND THEY ALL WEPT. "If you have tears, prepare to shed them now," quoted a Decoration day orator, and he couldn't understand why, a little later on, after he had got off a funny but chestnutty anecdote, every body placed their handkerchiefs to their eyes and wept. THE ABLE JURYMAN. "The case is a plain one," said Farmer Hayseed, after he had been chosen fore man of the jury. "In our instructions the judge says we must find that the de ceased was killed with malice afore thought in order to bring in a verdict of murder in the first degree. Now the de fendant says himself that he used an axe—" And the prisoner was promptly acquitted. TRIGONOMETRY WASN'T IN IT. "Talk about squaring the circle," said Mr. Longmarry, as he came out of the milliner's shop with a receipted bill in his hand and perspiration on his brow ; "it's nothing to squaring the circular." ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. Annie Gushington: We cannot ad vise you as to what would be the most becoming to weir as a sash about the waist of your new tennis gown. Your letter suggests the thought that a blazer sleeve enveloping a masculine arm might fill the bill aiter dark, but we do not ad vise you to try this. Maud S.: Yes, you should break off with George by all means before accept ing Ha*ry. You might work two for a while, but experience has shown others in your position that they are both sure to call on the same night some time, and that would be awkward. Don't be hog gish, Maud; give the other girls a show. May: Yes, chaperones will still be in vogue at the seaside this summer. This is one of the many customs that convenience has nothing to do with. THE FIFTH GRADE. Observations Made By the Herald School Reporter. Some Schools Lacking In Play Ground and Ventilation. Interesting Methods of Teaching Which Were Noted. Improvements Which the Board of Ed ucation Should Make At Once. Calisthenics Made to Take the Place of Play. The school reporter has been visiting the twin schools of Railroad and Ann streets, in search of a fifth grade. At the latter school the principal, Mrs. M. A. White, w&8 found, who gave the re porter much information relative to the methods in vogue at the two schools un der her charge. The fifth grade is divided between two rooms at this school for the reason that there are not enough children to make full classes of some grades, and as a con sequence there are sometimes three classes in a room. Miss Corinne Lynch teaches the higher class of the fifth grade and the two classes of the sixth, and here it was that the reporter located himself for the session. There is something almost pa thetic about these schools in the poorer quarters of the city, where the parents of the chil dren are of the laboring class, and the clothing gives evidence that it is hard to obtain, while pinched faces some times tell of a lack of proper food, and lines appear in the faces of children of fourteen that should not show in the face of mtn and women of forty. The reporter had plenty of time to observe all these things, for the entire session from 9 to 10:30 was devoted to arithme tic, which affords but little variety. A good plan in vogue in this room was the arrangement of the scholars by threes, so that all the number ones were doing one example, the number twos another and the threes a third. Thus a child could not copy the work of the next pupil, as that pupil would be engaged . on a different ex ample. The children had just tackled a new section of the arithmetic, and were not thoroughly versed in the methods, so that there was some confusion of terms, though the written work was pretty generally cor rect and intelligently performed. While tbe two higher classes were en gaged on their examples, the fifth grade class was busy with some composition writing, wherein they occasionally struck some word of whose meaning they were not sure. In that case the child would come quietly to the front of the room, where a large dictionary was placed, and gravely consult the same, the consultation of such books of refer ence being one of the things allowed in the Ann-street school. It was rather amusing to see a barefooted little • lad with the immense unabridged upon his lap, reading a definition as though it was very interesting, then going back to his seat, there to incorporate the in formation obtained in his composition. There were many nationalities represented among the forty-two pupils in Miss Lynch's room, from the child of pronounced color to the fair, flaxen haired child of German parentage, but the faces were all bright, interested and determined-looking, and the teacher was evidently looked upon as a friend and uot feared as a ruler. The gong sounded for recess, aud the scholars formed in lines with the quiet and orderliness characteristic of all the classes yet visited by the Herald re porter. I Taking his place in the hall, the re porter looked at the double lines formed at the doors of all the four rooms. Over by the door stood a boy with the cord of the gong in his hand, and beside him stood little Robbie Biglen, who perhaps might object to being called little, as his age is 14. Robbie held a cornet in his hand, and at a signal from Mrs. White he raised it to his lips and commenced the performance of a march. The music was well executed and the lines of chil dren moved steadily out from their rooms in time to it, across the hall and out into the two small yards at the back, which are very insufficient for use as a E lay ground. Only seven minutes and a alf were allowed the children to play, th#n came another stroke of the gong and the children stood still until a sec ond signal sounded, when they formed into lines about three feet apart through- Out the yard. While this was going on Mrs. White explained that the space in the yards was so insufficient that she considered the children would not be able to secure the requisite exercise; so she had introduced a system of calisthe nics to take the place of the natural ex ercise which the children were unable to obtain. Now followed a peculiar scene, as the children, following the motions of the principal, went through a series of arm and body motions, bending, bowing, shoulder shrugging and muscle resting movements, all together, counting as they did so in an under tone: "One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, change," then repeating. The seven minutes were soon over, then the close lines were formed again, the young cornetist played another march and the children passed with measured tread to their rooms, stood by their desks, and, at the sound of a note on the cornet, took their seats. Now, the lower fifth grade class from Mise Laventhal's room, ac companied by Miss Laventhal her self, filed into Miss Lynch's room for a music lesson. Miss Laventhal is thoroughly conversant with the Tonic Sol-Fa system, and these classes are usually combined, so as to receive in struction at her hands. Scales were sung to the hand motions, then Home, Sweet Home was sung to the hand motions alone, and sung well, too. Finally, music books written out by the children themselves were produced, and a couple of little pieces sung from them. The singing did credit to Miss Laventhal's abilities as a PACrES Q TO 12. FIVE CENTS. teacher, and was perfect in time and really musical, which a great deal of school singing is not. A drawing lesson followed the singine, and then came the grammar lesson, but the reporter left the grammar lesson in order to take advantage of what would probably be his only visit to the lo cality, to run over to the Railroad street school. Two blocks from the Ann-street school is Railroad street. The building is an old one, and emphatically the worst ar ranged structure of the kind in the city. Good ventilation is an utter impossi bility. There are no halls in the house; each room opening directly outdoors and communicating with the adjoining room in the most inconvenient manner possible. To the west are the immense pipe-works of J. D. Hooker & Co., to the south the Llewellen iron foundry, while the lots on the east are owned by the foundry and are to be used shortly for some kind of factory. All day long the smoke rom the pipe-works and foundry drifts over the school and into the openings for ventilation, while the noise is suffi cient to almost drown the voices of chil dren and teachers. At the time the re porter visited the school the pipe-works was using stable refuse as fuel, and tbe odor from the smoke was something to be remembered. The air is so impure in the rooms of this school that instea< of the usual calisthenics the childret are taken out of doors and marched around the building in order to give them the chance for fresh air. It is hoped by the people of the local ity and the teachers that ere another year the board of education will see its way clear to sell the property on Rail road street and build four additional rooms on the Ann-street school house, thus bringing both schools together again, and escaping the noise and bad odors of Railroad street. After a look at the four classes in this school, the reporter returned for a few minutes to Miss Lynch's class, the end of the session came, and the visit was over. JUVENILE WORKERS. Their Productions on Exhibition at Six * teenth Street School. Some time ago the Herald gave a short description of the museum at the Spring street school, cared for by the pupils, and the articles on exhibition loaned or given by scholars of all grades. It seems that several other schools have similar museums, and the school-report er while visiting Sixteenth street school on the occasion of the memorial day ex ercises was conducted by Miss Gordon into a room at the end of the hall on the second floor, where the scholars of that school had made a very creditable dis play of their handiwoik, along with numerous curious and odd objects gath ered by the pupils. A collection of woods from all parts of the county made by Charlie Stander is one of tbe most interesting exhibits in the rooms. A collection of geological specimen does credit to the diligence and good taste of Ledia Kinney. A pencil drawing of the interior of the Wilson's peak observatory bears the name of Aurelius Hutton. It is very well executed. Joey Laventhal, quite a little fellow, by the wav, exhibits two photographs of groups of schoolmates and teachers, taken by himself. A very well executed oil painting is the work of Bessie Kinsey, Edward Salisbury's name is attached to a very elaborate and complicated wooden fan, whittled out of a single piece of wood with a penknife. A little sloop, with the details of cord age and rigging remarkabh/ accurate, is shown as the work of little Lewis O'Harre, who studied a cyclopedia arti cle faithfully to obtain the knowledge necessary for the good work done. In the way of curiosities there are several slips of paper upon which dis membered flies have been pasted, show ing the details of their anatomy. Two excellent drawings of the Califor nia state seal are shown, as executed by Lillie Magee and Gustave Knecht. A beautiful bunch of tissue paper flowers is shown, made by the deft fin gers of Carrie Gass. Ladia Kinney has on exhibition a handsome design for wood carving. Joie Hill took a dog's head for a sub ject—a bull dog at that—and painted it in oils. Clara Wright sent a dainty drawn work pocket handkerchief. The most extensive exhibitor is Frank Goodman, who is 12 years old and in the sixth grade. He has a number of fine pencil drawings and crayon sketches, which are all remarkably well executed, and said to have been done without the aid of a teacher. Johnnie Thomas has another very in teresting exhibit in the shape of a box of carefully mounted butterflies, all of which Master Johnnie had watched out of the chrysalis stage into their present condition. In addition to these pieces of work by the children themselves there are many curious and beautiful objects in the museum and samples of the regular school work too numerous to mention.
