Several rases of making and circulating counterfeit coin ’have been heard at the Central criminal court during the last few days, and at the conclusion of one of the cases yesterday the foreman of the Jury asked the authorities if they would take a suggestion from twelve business men who during the year had to deal with considerable sums In silver coin. There was. he said, a most simple test for the detection of base coin. It was to sharply cut the milled edge of a good coin against the milled edge of the suspected coin, if spurious the metal would almost Immediately begin to shave off. After making a personal test the com mon sergeant said he quite agreed with the suggestion of the jury as to the use fiili^ess of the test, and said it ought to be made known. The foreman added that he had written to three chancellors of the exchequer pointing out that they ought not to de prive the public of this simple test by issuing crown pieces and threepenny pieces W'ithout milled edges. Austrians Fear Unlucky 13. From the Pall Mall Gazette. In no other western European country is superstition so prevalent as in Austria Hungary. Quite recently the chamber lain's office changed the number of box 13 in the imperial Opera House, and the Imperial Court Theatre to 12A, because the public objected to sitting in a box bearing this unlucky number. None of the rich subscribers who takes a box for the year wanted No.. 13. and for sin gle performances it was Just as hard to dispose of. This superstition reaches its height in medicine. Speaking at the health exhibi tion Dr. Heinrich Grau declared that in many Instances superstition, and especial ly local superstition, was an absolute menace to public health. In the Austrian hospital^ one finds no block or pavilion 13, no ward 13, no stair ease 13. Very few patients will consent to be operated upon on the thirteenth day of the month, and in thjs respect Friday, too, is considered just as unlucky. At Carlsbad, Marlenbad, Gnstoin and other famous Austrian cure resorts, nobody wants to begin his cure on a Friday. All Troubles.

From the New York Sun. “I observe that several more new the a'res are being built In New York," aald a theatrical n Digger a few days ugo, "but l haven’t yet noticed that any one has discovered a new playwright capable of Increasing materially the crop of fairly good plays, t'nless some playwright is uncovered qul"K’y there will be a famine the coming season. "Only today I had to notify a woman star who has been looking for a play that the scach seemed hopeless, and she has, therefore, postponed her starring tour a year. “Another profhinent leading woman who has been popular with Broadway audi ences for years was on the verge of starr ing this season, but couldn’t find a play. She told her managers that she pre ferred to continue as a leading woman Instead of starring in a poor play. “Where are the plays a-ooming from then? The London crop of last year was a failure. Only one notable success was produced by Pinero, and that in due course of time we shall see. “Barrie hasn’t turned out anything for this year as yet, and he may be expected to contribute at least one good play, but then all his plays for the next live years have already been sold to Charles Froh man, and outside managers cannot get a look-in on his works until about 1911. That is too Jong a time to wait. "Henry Arthur Jones has written one play that hasn’t yet been produced, but even If he writes another that likewise Is pre-empted by Frohman, who gets all his plays for the next five years. “Robert Marshall, Haddon Chambers and Sydney Grundy haven’t written sue- | cesses In the lost two years, and as Lon- | don always secs their plays first New York can hope for little frorfl them. Some Good Shaw Plays. “Bernard Shaw has several plays that have never been produced in America, and they might prove worth while if only some one could get Shaw In a dark alley end hit him overithe headw;ith a sandbag. One of the be3t plays Is 'Captain Brass bound’s Conversion,’ now being played »n London by Ellen Terry, but Shaw posl- ! tively refused to let the play be produced ! In America without Ada Rehan. “Another whim of Bernard Shaw keeps his latest play from being produced In America. This is ’Major Barbara,’ the heroine of which Is a Salvation Army girl. It was played In London just after ‘Mrs. Warren’s Profession’ stirred up such a tempest in New York lost win ter, and when American managers made offers for t'he American rights, Shaw re plied: •' ‘I will never let “Major Barbara” be produced in America. It is entirely too provincial a country to appreciate my new play.' “There was a time when we could al ways get half a dozen successes from Germany, but the days of Augustin Daly and the adapted German farces seem to have passed. Sudermanu’s new play will be- the only importation from that dlroc- ; tion. and that will hardly be entertaining | to the general public, owing to the dis agreeable nature of the story. “In Paris there 1ms been ore con spicuous success, Hervieu's new play. •Lc Reveille,’ but Hervieu’s ploys In the past have never been popular entertain ment, so that one can scarcely expect much amusement from 'his latest social problem: “To come nearer home, all the Ameri can playwrights seem to be wrWten out. Clyde Fitch said just before ho sailed: “ '1 am writing four different plays now. whlnh positively must be delivered by autumn, and I don’t see how 1 can finish them. When I return in August I must commence rehearsals of these plays. If my health doesn’t brj.ik down, nwi when tiic lust of them is produced in October I shall be In a tit condition for a sanitarium. 'C-coige Ado's output fo»' tha next two years has been bought un in advance, and the playwright is working feverishly to deliver orders on acheduo 1 time. H«* v'ill no' undertake any ne v plav now. no matter what the price paid him. as he ?s overworked, like Fitch. “Charles Klein and Augustus Thomas ar? the only other playwrights of dis tinction- in this country.

Thomas Is Leisurely. “TlK.'ias belongs to the leisure class of authors who work only when they feel, line it, anil refuses to be hurried. Ills contracts will keep him busy for the next tw.. ,y.uars. ..... "Tlure are many minor playwrlghu who Occasionally get plays proh.iccd, and I have beep going through their works in the March for an available play. One of tl eir. sent me a e'r.v the other day Which he enthusius..rally declared will the greatest play lie h id ever written. II turned out to lie a romance of Lon don and Bonnie Prince Charlie, full of powdered wigs and gadzooks. with a heroine who disguised herself ns a man and fought a duel. How playwrights can expect that sort of ohl-fashloncd rot to please a modern Broadway audience Is too much for mo. "One young playwright, whose work began to attract attention last season, confessed to me frankly that he believed he had undertaken more than he could possibly accomplish 111 the next two years. Immediately after ho scored a success last winter with a pretty good play he was besieged with offers from various stars and managers. Within a month lie had accepted advance rdyaltles on five plays ill all that he has agreed to deliver at various times before next January. He is working night and day to keep Ills word, but he frankly admits that lie" is being rushed so that he doesn’t believe they will be up to his standard. "The lack of Inventive playwrights may make the dramatized novel the vogue again this season. Managers who huve been unable to unearth good plays have found that it Is easier to get a clever hack writer who can dramatize a novel. "At least a dozen Important produc tions of dramatized novels will be made this coming season, more than any other season since the memorable period when "Richard Carvel- capped the climax of ab surdities. Managers don’t want the dramatized novel, and they are taking it only as a poor substitute for something they cannot And. "The situation in the nmslcnl comedy realm is scarcely better. In default of getting hold of a good book, managers send for a composer and a librettist and u scene painter and say: •^'Locate your first act at somebody’s country house, your second act on the beach at Atlantic City or any other oeean resort, and your third aet anywhere you please, so the scenery Isn't too expensive Work In some s.diRs suitable to those costumes left over from last season's failure, so wo won't liavo to spend too • Embroidery At 5c Yd.—Point De Paris lace edges and insertions in remnants of 3 to 12 yards.

Immense Areas Northwest Are Now Under That Method. Within recent years the possibilities of dry land farming have begun to be real ized, not only by the department of agri cult .ire, but by the various experiment stations in the arid states. The oil rain belt was formerly con sidered as limited to the area in which the average rainfall was about twenty Inches per year. Dry land farming, how ever. Is now being successfully practiced in many localities where the rainfall av erages from eight to fifteen inches per year. In parts of Montana, says Country Life in America, spring wheat and alfalfa yield Inrge and profitable crops without irrigation and with a rainfall of twelve inches. Similarly In Utah dry land farm ing has yielded excellent results with wheat, oar icy and to a somewhat less ex tent with alfalfa. In the interior of Ore gon there are Immense areas planted to wheat and yielding twenty to twenty five bushels per acre with a rainfall not exceeding eight Inches per year. The results obtained by the thousands of farmers who are engaged In this line ot agricullu e have called attention to the f real possib-hties ot dry land farming and have made It apparent that there ate ihousards of acres of lnnd containing almost unlimited plan* food w »*ch will yield good crops under a sys.m of dry land farming and which have heretofore been cons!

In consultation with three conferees, another patient. This pa tient really died. After the death, ns the physicians discussed the case together, one of them said: • ‘Since quick burial is necessary, we might inter the body temporarily.

Ag» Herald Bulldlna. LESCHETIZKY MASTER OF MUSIC TEACHING From Current Literature. Concentration, it seems, is the watch word of Theodor Leschetizky, tlie Vienna music master. In “complete unswerving concentration,” says Annette Ilyllah, an English writer, he lias fulfilled his own life and character, and he is never tired of Impressing upon his pupils the idea that “without concentration you can do nothing." Leschetizky's personality and piano “method,” both of which are fully de- j scribed by Miss Hull&h, have a real and j vital interest for all mankind. They help ed to mold the careers of several of the greatest living pianists, among them 1 I^aderewski, Mark Hambourg, Gabrilo witch, Fanny Bloonifleld-Zeisler, and for thirty years have drawn, as a magnet, the promising musical studentB of every nation. It is well to remember, however, that the “Leschetizky Method,” so call ed, Is not in any strict sense a method at all. The term was coined by Lesche tizky’a assistants, who arranged in a connected series the technical exercises through W’hich they have put the pupils to be prepared for him. He himself has said; “I have no technical method. There are certain ways of producing certain ef fects, and 1 have found those w'hlch suc ceed best; but I have no iron rules. How is it possible one should have them? One pupil needs this, another that; the hand of each differs. The brain of each differs. There can be no rule. I am a doctor to ; whom my pupils come as patients to be cured of their musical ailments, and the | remedy must vary in each case.” In only one respect can it be said that Lesche tizky has originated a method, and this is in the way in which he teaches lvis pupils to learn a piece of music. He re- i quires the student to analyze a compo- J sition bar by bar, slowly and deliber ately engraving each point on his mind I as on a map, until he knows it so thor- | oughly that he can play any part without the music. Leschetizky endeavors to inculcate: (1) an absolutely clear comprehension of the principal points to be studied the music on hand; (2) a clear conception of where the difficulties lie, and of the way in which to conquer them; ami (3) the mental realization of these facts before they are carried out by the hands. “Decide ex actly what U is you want to do in the first place." he counsels his pupils, “then how you will do it; then play it. Stop and think if you have played it in the way you meant to do: then only, if sure of this, go ahead. Without concentra tion. remember you can do nothing. The* brain must guide the fingers, not the fingers the brain.” Other points in mu si^ science have been conveyed by Les chetizky in felieitious similes and sug gestions as follows: “Fo make an affective accelerando you must glide into rapidity as steadily as a train increases its speed when steaming out of a station. “Teach yourself to make a rallentapdo evenly by watching the drops of water cease as you turn off a tap. “A player with an unbalanced rhythm reminds me of an intoxicated man who cannot walk straight. “If your wrists are weak, go and roll the grass in the garden.* “If you want to develop strength and sensitiveness in the tips of your fingers, use them in everyday life. For instance, when you go out for a walk, hold vour umbrella with the tips instead of in' the palm of your hand. “Practice your technical exercises on a cushion or upon a table sometimes. You do not always need the piano to strengthen your muscles.** Lesrhetizky is said to love his pupils as If they were his own children; but “as a good father,” observes Miss 'Hullah. “he -considers his duty better done through the aid of discipline than of sympathy.” Like all highly strung peo ple, he Is extremely sensitive to person ality. Once in a while, when the door bell announces the arrival of the first pupil, if the professor Itappens to be in a fastidious frame of mind, he will steal ‘downstairs to find out who it is, and If on peeping surreptitiously into the room he sees some one antipathetic to him. he promptly steals upstairs again and stays there a quarter of an hour or more to recover from the blow. Like all in dividualistic natures, he desires the mo nopoly of certain emotions. He may he sad, but others must not be so. Me can not endure half-heartedness; enthusiasm he must and will have. Xor can he bear dismal solemnity and silence. On one occasion he gave a lesson to a taci turn lady without uttefing a Fingle word. She would not speak, he said, so why should he? Still further eccentricities are recounted by Miss Hullah: , “He Is full of benevolent sympathy. lift! when the time for the lesson comes, everything but the immediate need of i getting the thing done in the right way Is obliterated from his mind, ami in the enthusiasm of the moment all traces of this benevolence' speedily disappear. He forgets the pupil is full of original sin and cannot wait for the signs of grace. “This leads to misunderstanding. It leads also to the sudden exit of the pupil; to the slamming of doors; to the crushing of music on the floor; to grim nemarks about a future better spent ‘in tomato | planting.’ Once it led to total dark- j ness. In the intensity of his feelings the 1 master arose, hastily put out the gas. ' rushed away and left the pupils sitting around tlie class in silence and gloom til things were patched up by some com forting soul outside.” When all goes well, however, a lesson with Leschctizky Is a really wonderful experience. Says Miss Hullah: “His point of view is so interesting, the depth of his comprehension so pro found. his power of rlear exposition so great, the parallels he draws between art and life so unexpected, that his lis tener is held under a spell of wondering enthusiasm throughout. Both his ear and his memory are very remarkable. He is able to retain accurately in hia mind every detail In a piece of music mt hear ing it for the first time; and not onlj to play It through Immediately afterward, but tu discuss points in it. "Ho sits very still and very straight, never stooping over the keys, or swaying about. His hands, often partially resting on the notes, are almost flat, the wrists low. the fingers doing all the work. Ills whole figure laut with the tension of concentrated thought. "His playing is as difficult to describe as himself, for It is the translation of his nature into sound. Then, as at no other time, 'his varted temperament discloses Itself, its contrasts finding III music their best interpretation. These sonorous chords weighed out by so masterful a hand; this steady beat, of measured emphasis; the lilt ami swing of the rhythm; tile fine pointed staccato; the piquant charm with which the dalhty notes come dancing off the keys; the melancholy tenderness of the soft caressing tone, stealing in unawares—these tell the story, more faith fully than any other language, or his na ture. not only as a musician, but as a man." 1-eachetlzky is 75'years old. lint he nan still tire out most of his friends. “H» gives the impression of being the very essence of nervous force." says Miss H11I lah. "rather than the possessor of great phylcal energy." IN LONDON SOCIETY. What It Costs a/Elite Society Woman In London. Special Sable to (he Enquirer.
