Mine. 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

bition.
The critics elsewhere differ as to the

certain that the desire to see the most

The play will be given Friday, Saturday

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

Wilson Barrett has again failed as a

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

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

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

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.

HISS MILDRED'S BIRTHDAY DINNER AT
KBDONDO HOTEL.
Nine sweot childish faces, nine brown little
heads,
All there in their places, with cheeks rosy red;
Tis Miss Mildred's birthday, eight summers are
gone.
This is her dinner party, celebrating the day
she was born.
See those bright sparkling eyes, as the cake is
brought on;
Candles in bright colored dyes, eight in num
ber thereon;
The table is smothered in smllax ai d roses,
The room a symphony in beautiful posies.
The band in the gallery plays musio divine.
While nine merry voices ring out in a chime,
So happy, blithesome and joyous are they
May their lives ever be so, we devoutedly pray.
