THE NORTHERN LIGHTS. The Moit Brilliant Display grsr Wit nessed From American Soil. The display of the aurora borealls Sat urday evening, was the most brilliant ever seen in America. It was observed at dif ferent points extending Irom the Atlantic ocean to Iowa a distance of over a thou sand miles. It is reported as being ob served In New York, Cleveland, Cincin nati, Chicago, St. Louis, and many other large cities, oclentinc men sssure us that It was not altogether unex pected and that other displays may be looked for In tbe near future, It began shortly after six o'clock, and for an hour was a gorgeous sight one which would bave made Bayard Taylor exclaim "Tbe amber midnight smiles In dreams of dawn." A banner of crimson I extended from east to west over the north ern Bky and reaching nearly to the zenith. It would dim at times to a delicate pink, and then brighten suddenly to tbe bright hue of a maiden's blushing cheek. Bars of white played constantly over the sur face of tbe sky sometimes very distinct, oftener hardly discemabie, and all this was but the reflection of a hidden glory more Intense. Tke "greater" lights were never seen by mortal eyes. Beneath the horizon were golden streaks of light which made daylight of the northern midnight and made glad tbe hearts of the dwellers in those ice-bound regions. The cause of tbe phenomena Is absolute, ly unknown. There are a great many theories about It, but tbey are simply theories. All that Is known about them Is that they are electrical disturbances. This is prove by the effect they have on com passes and telegraph Instruments. ' In ancient times a great many supersti tious were attached to this phenomena. Some thought tbey presaged war, famine, etc. Modern science has dispelled these superstitions, although unable to solve the mystery of their occurence. Miss Mullory as "Betsy Baker." It is evident that Wellington's bright young ladies, like prophets, are not with out honor, save In their own country. Front a recent Boston exchange we take the following : Tbe discretion of the Massasoit club In choosing two bright, familiar farces, full of action and humor, rather than an ambl tioos play, were evident in tbe sustained interest and enthusiasm shown by the spectators at Union hall last evening. John Madison Morton's "Betsy Baker" is a pure bit of fun throughout, and Miss Rose C Mallory as the. enterprising laundress brought to the character a spirit and per socality that made it exceedingly attract ive, her quaint costume and brusque ways forming a capital contrast with the conven tlooal little Mrs. Mouscr, very charmingly played by Bliss Mildred W. Taylor. In tbe second piece, "The Twe Buzz ards," also by Morton, J. Brooks Gilbert as the Irish-American, John Small, was a cestral and mlrtb-provoklng figure. From his baggy trousers to the limp swing of his head he quite fulfilled one's idea of what tbe character should be. Here again Miss Mallory as Bliss Lucretia Buzzard could hardly have been better, while Bliss Rice's impersonation of a maid was far prettier than Is ever found, save before tbe curtain; In short It msy be said Out the parts were all thoroughly understood, and each piece was extremely amusing and well done. August Vatter was the manager of the entertainment Music was furnished by tbe Beacon Orchestral club, Miss Marietta It Sherman, director. Grange Meetings.
