The strange and unusual feats ac complished by the Sages und their us filstanls In the exhibition of hypnotic and mesmeric power nt the Academy of Music last night cannot be faithful ly described In limited space. It Is enough to say that about every feat which hypnotists claim they are able to perform was done or can be done by the Sages and their two uides. A. U. McDoile und Dr. Granville dray. All the seats in thu Academy were occupied anil the lame audience was not tired when the curtain was wrung down. Meanwhile a young man at tached to the company hud been put to sleep nnd afterward carried to one of the display windows in Dunn's fur nishing store, where the subject will slumber until Ml o'clock Wednesday evening, w hen he will be 'awakened on the Academy stage. I'ntil then he will be wutthed by a committee of local people und will receive neither food nor drink. The same feat was per foitnel by the Sages when here last spring. Since their last appearance here the Sages have become more dramatic In their work and give a beter entertain men than ever and Hint Is saying a great deal. One of last night's subjects was induced to sleep und his heat ac tion controlled while the pulsations were tested by Drs. (Jibbs. Iteedy and O'.Mulley. The heart wus made to beat nominally wlillo the right pulse registered from 100 to 116 beats and the left pulse from K4 to AC beats. The doctors then changed positions and the light pulse was made to register !t'i and the left "S, tho heart beating 85 times. Not the least best of the entertain ment was the exhibition of tho clne matogruphe pictures. The machine Is a French Invention nnd Is similar to the vltuscopc, but Is much better perfected. The Sagos will be here one week. Popular prices will' prevail during their slay, during which either Mr. or Mrs. Sage or one of their assistants w ill give exhibitions free of charge in private houses. Notice.

SUPERINTENDENT'S HONOR ASSAILED Cbnrgcs ltellectini; on the Teachers' Cbiirucler Found to lie Without Foundation and She Wa F.xoner nted by Ihe Board, After Which She Wa tiiven the Floor--Supt. Howell Accused of Ueuiingr Her a Uclvnse. t'liurlcs (W. Scbantr Succeeds (icorgc Mitchell. Such a scene as the one presented at last tilclit's meeting of the board of control wus never before witnessed In the history of that body, and for deep ly dramatic effect it surpassed even the climaxes of some of the leading trag edies before the footlights. The case of Mis. Lucy Kooth was disposed of. An obtuse observer could not fall to notice upon filtering the meeting room before the meeting was called to order that some startling developments would eventuate. There wus an air of mystery on the fuoes of the controllers who were not hid away In the com mittee rooms. It was S.15 before Presi dent Schrlefer's gavel rapped order. A few minutes were taken up with minor matters, und then cume the be ginning of the scene, when Mr. Worm ser arose in his place and said that certain charges derogatory to the char acter of one of the teachers In the high school had gone, out, the High and Training School committee had Inves tigated the charges and begged leave to submit the following report: TI1K CHAIIOE GROUNDLKSR. Certain reports prejudiced to the charac ter of Mrs. Liny Hoolh having been brought to the members of the high an I training school committee they fell It to lie their duty as u committee, to exam ine Into the truth of such reports, anil after making such examination as they have been able to do, ami having all sueh statements as they could get knowledge, of, and after mature consideration, we, the committee, believe such reports to be entirely unfounded and untrue und In justice to the ludy mentioned, do so re port. What motive could have actuated the accuser of Mrs. 1 Sooth we do not know, but It certainly has the appearance of I.e. lug a willful and malicious falsehood told about this lady for the purpose of Injur ing her. F. L. Wormsor. W. S. Lung-Ian, O. n. Sehrcifer, A. L. Francois, CI. II. 1'ursou. A motion was made to adopt the re port, and It wus amended by Mr. Par ker that the report be adopted and the action of the committee in conducting the investigation be Indorsed, llefore the motion was put Mr. Jennings had the amendment Included that all pa--pers in the cuse lie pluced on lile in the olllce of Secretary Fellows. When the motion went through as twice amended, Mr. Welsh said that Mrs. Kooth was in the next room, and he moved that she be accorded the privilege of making a statement. Ills motion was passed. Mrs. Kooth approached slowly from the secretary's olllce, leaning upon the arm of her son, a boy in his teens. She looked III and pale. Her words were uttered in a subdued tone, easily loud enough to be heard in all corners of the room: but there wus a distinct ring in every syllable, and she seemed to be pouring out the vials of her hate In ev ery sentence. The room was as silent as the grave. This Is what she said: WO.M AN'S KKP VTATION. No matter could be more grave than that which has been under consideration In re. No charge could be more deeply fraught with disastrous consequences. Viewed from a point of results, a. charge of murder woui.l be slight In comparison. The i tiding of a life physical is less a crime than the wanton destruction of that which makes lire desirable. It is not all of death to die, nor all of life to be per uilltcil to exist. Society Is so cnnstltiilcd that a woman really lives or virtually dies according to the repute In which she Is held In the conimiinXy. I came to this city live years ngo with an unblemished reputation, a high stand ing as a director of drawing, and the most implicit conlldence and warmest esteem t f Ihe people by whom 1 was employed. I havt worked In your schools faithfully ami loyally. I have lived my life among you openly, quietly, blamelessly. I have been so fully occupied with my work tii.it I have given myself little time for social tnjoyinent, and I have very few 'ac quaintances In the city. A knowledge of this fact may have emboldened uialiiions-ly-iucH:ied people to make this ultack upon me. tin Saturday evening, Nov. 21. I received a communication signed by six men, und Mr. Howell, the Import of which is known lo all here present. It w as a peremptory reliqest for my resignation to be read be fore the boa ril of Nov. Z. No reason was unsigned. I was overwhelmed. 1 was stunned. 1 had been so sure of the couli dence and esteem of the board, and when Mr. Howell told me, some lime previous ly, that tin. committee had voted me my salary during ubseiice, I had taken til it us a mark of their sympathy on account of my Illness und their appreciation of my services. I mentally' reviewed my work to dis cover where, if nt all, I had been remiss In duty. I recalled the various ulterinces that I had ever made In regard to the board of control ns a body or to .Mr. Howell as superintendent, but could tind no lack ef professional loyalty to the one, no failure In professional courtesy to the other. I culled on Mr. Howell early on Sunday morninc, Nov. . His manner lo nie was discourteous In Ihe extreme; his tone and hearing Insufferably Insolent. Were I en dowed with the physical strength to make such treatment efficacious, and any man had borne himself to me as Mr. Howell did, I would have crushed him lo the ground. I care not how high his position nor how eonleiiiiil Ible his character, the proper answer would have be.n a blow. NO F.XPLA NATION. He would make no explanation except that grave charges had been brouitiit against me ami that the committee had given me the privilege of resigning. 11j refused to state Ihe nature of those charg es or the name of the person who pre ferred their. He stated that the com mltue had not acted hastily In the mat ter, and that a conclusion was arrived at ; only after due and cnrciil consideration j und while acting under legal advice. I 1 asked :f there was no one Iroiii whom I could obtain the Information, and he said "Not from anyone, for those men whose names appear on that paper are pledged to secrecy." He added, as mi nfer thouirht. that Mr. Wormser might tell me, though why Mr. Wormser should be "X pecteiltto divulge n secret he was pl"dg" I to ke"p did not appear. He further ad vised me to send in my resignation, ami hush the matter u; and prevent li from becoming public. Hut. gentlemen, I had nothing to hush up. and I told Mr. Howell that If '.n order that I might know the nature of those charges It became neces saty to make them public, then they should be made public, for I must know. (ientl'-mcn. i ask you if this is true; w.i this done after 'Mile ami careful consider ation';" Look you to see Mr. Howell's at titude in this matter. When those things came to him did he Investigate the charges, did he inquire Into the veracity or standing of the ! -ergon making thetu; did ho come to me to see what. If any thing, I had to say In answer to such accu sations? Mr. Howell mav plead that It was a delicate mptter to speak of to a woman. I grant that a very dellejte matlcr; nnd yet if the sunerlntlve delica cy, the abnormal modesty that charac terize Mr. Howell, ns evinced by the pa per he has read to ithe gentlemen of the committee, prevented his speaking lo me, he could hnve gone to some of my friends, he could have mentioned the imittor lo a hundred people who now stand ready lo vindicate my honor and sustain my repu tation. Why ilhl he not do some one or all of these things; why did he not tell me when 1 called on him on Sunday morn ing? I wPl tell you. It was because he dare not. It was the net of a eowaril'who raises his arm to strike but ha not the courage to rive lhe blow. Oentlemen, I am not "ontendlng for my position, but for that which every true woman holds dearer than t'fe Itself a spotless reputation. It is not solely for my own sake that I s;ieak now, but for the protection of the womanhood that Is represented In tho schools of this city. For many another woman Just us Inno cent as 1. under such an attack as this, might have lacked the courage of defense and. rather than endure the publicity to repugnant lo any woman of delicate feel ings, might have resigned and crept nw ly l:ke a wounded bird to die. Let every woman teaching la this city ask herself if hi-r womanhood may not be assailed tomorrow, for how cun any teacher feel herself safe when the superintendent lends Ids aid to such a diabolical plot against one of their number. As for the person who nsslsted him in this, I have only this to say: "Cod made her, let her pass for a woman." (JVESTION OF HONOR. Whatever Jlr. Howell's motive, may have been he has done me a most cruel wrong, one for which he cun make no reparation. 1 will not say he is u scoun drel, for ought 1 know that may be ac tionable and 1 have no wish to be called upon to defend myself in a civil cuse; but I will sny he Is one who has abused the high privilege of his olllce and violated the trust of the men who placed him ill the position he has failed to honor. I will not say he is a villain, hut 1 will say he Is a mun whom good women will do well to avoid and with whom honorabe men will not care to associate. i ieiitleiueii. a woman's reputntlon Is her nil. A superintendent of schools should consider the welfare of his teachers ns entrusted to his keeping. He should pro tect his teachers' reputation until he is convinced by Ihe most powerful and over whelming evidence of iinwoii Illness. Mr. Howell assails mine on the unsupported evidence of a woman of whom he knows absolutely nothing, inslead of being my defender, Mr. Howell stands as my ac cuser and prosecutor. When I refused to resign and he was forced lo maintain his position, he made a pretense at Inves tigating, but failed to call before the com mittee any of the people he had ques tioned because he learned they had no ill lug to say to my detriment. Notwith standing an almost frantic search on his part he was unable to rind any one to substantiate the charges. Hut, gentle men, when was it he made even this pre. Ii use of Investigating? After he is forced to it: after t hi- dastardly blow has been I'enlt: after he has caused me days mid nights of agony which years of time can never efl'ace from my memory; after he as learned that I am not friendless and he fears he has gone loo far. It Is Ihe act of on assassin who stalls III the da.k and tlees when daylight comes. Lit the mi ll of this city whose daugh ters are in training for teachers consider well before seeking onsltlons for I hem In schools bo long ns this man Is superiu tcndeiit. Let the members of this board think of a sister or a daughter III the posi tion In which I am placed and Imagine their fellings then in regard to the man who. In secret session and behind locked doors, made a cowardly attempt to hurry this matter lo what he considered a con clusion, t.el Mr. Howell himself look forward Into Ihe years to come when, perhaps deprived of his protecting arm, his own wife may stand, alone, to light the battle of life for herself and those de pendent on her. Let him think of the bitter tears mid agony of mind nt such shameful humiliation. Let him think in the year to come of his own daughter, the little ch'1'1 who now plavs about his knee, nnd delights his heart wilh her child ish prattle; let him think of her in such a position, end 1 ask him. how would he regard the man who refused her the poor privilege of defending her name against charges and accusations that are as false as they are malicious. AFTF.lt THU SVPF.UINTF.NDENT. John fiihbons took the floor as soon ns she left the room nnd he said that H would be impossible for the board to overlook what she had said about Supeiiiiteindeiit Howell. He made a motion that the committee take the mntler up und sift It thoroughly. Mr. Jacobs moved that Messrs. Jennings and Wnlsh be added to the committee. Mr. Jennings' view that it was a mat ter for the entire board to deal with Impressed the other members ns be ing correct and his mot Ion prevailed that a special meeting be hold on Wed nesday evening, December 9, and the secretary will notify .Mr. Howell to be present and offer his defense. Charles W. riharar, of :!'.! Kast Mar ket street, was chosen to succeed (leo. Mitchell as controller from the First ward until the next city election. All the members voted for him, und he appeared nt the close of the meeting and was sworn In. He Is about 114 years old it ml has lived in the First ward al most all his life. He Is a son of Chris tian II. Scharar, ihief mining engineer of the Delaware and Hudson, and Is himself a mining engineer In charge of all the Delaware and Hudson collieries In Luzerne county. He has been in the employ ut the company for fifteen yea is. The building committee presented n report recommending that he contract for (lagging and building a retaining wall at new No Hi school be awarded lo M. J. Jtuddy for $l,ruu. A BABY'S RED STOCKING. Eicellent Farce Comedy oiv nt Davis' Theater. One of tho most amusing of th many good fnrco comedies that have been seen at Davis' theater Is "A Haby's Red Slocking," which opened a three days' engagement there last night. Leading the company Is Ml.-s Alice Hanson, a very clever young sou brette, whose dancing and singing Is the most marked feature of the enter tainment. There are other features, though, as excellent as they are numer ous and nil in all it is a very creditable performance. The farce Is built around the finding of a fortune In a bay's red stocking and the play itself without the inci dentals introduced by the fourteen ar tists in the company would be suffi ciently entertninimr for a most cul tured audience. The matinee performance had to lie cut yesterday owning to the dismissal during the morning of one of the lncly members of the troupe, 'Miss Mabel Darville. Miss Arline Athens assumed the role in the evening and acquitted lieiscli very creditably. NEW ASPHALT AGENTS. Kobcilson & Hitchcock, the Itnrbrr Representatives, Have Resigned. Messrs.
