Amusements JAMES O'NEILL AS ACTOR AMD MAN. Mr. James O'Neill, America's fore most romantic actor, began his career In a stock company in Cincinnati when he was but 17 years of age. He rose steadily In his profession, and at the age of 20, J. H. McVlcker, manager of McVicker's theater, Chicago—then the third leading theater in America, engaged him as his leading man. No other young actor has ever held such a prominent position. While In Mc Vicker's company, he played all the leading parts with Edwin Forrest and Edwin Booth. Mr. Booth was so im pressed with his work that he en gaged him to play his leading busi ness, even alternating with him in such parts as Iago and Othello, in "Othello" and Brutus and Casslus in "Julius Caesar." Succeeding this en gagement, Mr. O'Neill was featured with Barry Sullivan, one of the great tragedians of that time. When Char lotte Cushman made her success in "Macbeth," Mr. O'Neill was her lead ing man, playing Macbeth to her Ladv Macbeth. Afterwards Adelaide Neil son, the greatest of all Juliets, en gaged Mr. O'Neill for her Romeo, and was so delighted with his performance that when she returned to England she made him a very flattering offer to accompany her as co-star but he thought the opportunities in this coun try greater and the wisdom of his de cision was afterwards proven. Another offer was afterwards made to Mr. O'Neill by Mr. John Stetson, the manager of Mary Anderson. This jistute manager went so far as to deposit $25,000 to Mr. O'Neill's credit for a 20 weeks' engagement as Romeo to Mary Andersen's Juliet, but Mr. O'Neill had by that time struck his bonanza—"Monte Cristo"—and was financially and artistically the most successful star in the United States. Mr. O'Neill first played "Monte Cristo" at Booth's Theatre in New York City for fifteen consecutive weeks, which was then considered a phenomenal run. This only proved a correct indication of this great play's future, for it since has been played off and on by Mr. O'Neill with un varied success for the past twenty five years. Among the many things that the American stage owed to Mr. O'Neill is the discovery and development of such prominent actors as the late E. J. Morgan, Edmund Breese, Howard Oculd, Forrest Robinson, S. Miller Kent, Robert Haines, Margaret Anglin, Maude O'Dell, Grace Raven, Eugenie Blair, Gertrude Bennett and others too numerous to mention. For the past two season's Mr. O'Neill was the lead ing star for Klaw & Erlanger's all star "Two Orphans" Co., in which by his excellent work he proved the good judgment of these gentlemen In sel ecting him for such a position. But public demand to see him again in "Monte Cristo" was so universal, that he decided to make a farewell tour this year. This engagement will be the last opportunity to see America's greatest romantic actor in his master piece. A few words may be said about this fine actor as a man. His domestic life has been an Ideal one. He lives with his family at New London, Conn in the Pequot colony, one of the most exclusive summer resorts in the coun try, where he is a very prominent .figure. On the road, Mrs. O'Neill is his constant companion. He is the father of two boys—the elder, James O'Neill, Jr., is also an actor and play ing in his father's company. The younger son is at college studying law. MAUDE FEAI,y. Miss Maude Fealy, the dainty little star of Martha Morton's latest dram atic triumph, "The Illusion of Bea trice," cherishes a number of fond re collections of the late Sir Henry Irving, with whom she had the honor of appearing as leading lady one entire season in London and throughout Eng land. The following Is one which Miss Fealy says will always cause her a hearty laugh. It happened on an opening night in one of the provincial cities, when, with the eminent actor, Miss Fealy was introduced to her son (in the play, of course) Sir Henry looked her over and then at the son, and remarked: "My, but your son is a whopper." As the laws in England are very strict against young children appearing on the stage, Miss Fealy jokingly suggested getting a dwarf to play the part, instead of the big chap originally cast for it. This, Sir Henrv thought a capital idea and did as she suggested. In a certain scene of the play, the hero, with the child in his arms, had to make a flying leap across a chasm. The first night, the gentleman playing the hero was very nervous, and kept pacifying the supposed child, by say ing: "There, there it will be all right don't be afraid, "until finally the bundle in his arms became irri tated and in heavy bass tones said: "That's all right, governor look out for yourself." is PLAYS AND PLAYERS.

PHONETIC SPELLING ADVOCATED. Dr. Donaldson'* Reason for Support* ing Mr. Rosevelt—Gift from Mr. Carnegie. AkhocIiikm! Preu to The Evening Tlinr*. St. Andrews, Oct. 16.—At the open ing of the winter session of St. An drews university today, the principal, Dr. James Donaldson, showed himself to be an ardent supporter of President Rosevelt's spelling reform. Dr. Don aldson said that he cordially favored phonetic spelling, as children and U literates cculd learn through a phon etic alphabet in a quarter cr a third of the time required under the pres ent system, and as millions of chil dren were learning to read, phonetic spelling would save millions of hours of wasted labor, it would also help greatly in governing the colonies and dependencies, as it was of the utmost importance that every citizen of the British empire, whatever his native tongue, should learn English. The greatest obstacle to learning English would be removed when the wonls were spelled phonetically. Dr, Donaldson, at the conclusion of his address, announced that Andrew Carnegie had given $50,000 to build in addition to the library of the univer sity. THE JESUITS. Army of Men Trained Mentally and Spiritually. $ 4 At Sparta, in the old Greek days, there was a race whose one aim aim was the cultivation and hardening of their physical powers. The Jesuits have spent just the same eagerness and culture on their brains. They are a sort of intellectual cosmopolitan aristocracy of the world. It ta'/3S seventeen years of strenuous study and training to make a Jesuit. Only the strongest physically and intel lectually can, as a result, attain to full rank. A fully-professed Jesuit priest under the age of thirty-four is practic ally an Impossibility. There is one remarkable feature of the Jesuits: their oath of obedience. They are bound absolutely, "within reason and right," to obey their super ior in all that is not sinful. The Exercises of Ignatius is the famous book in the study of which their novices spend two years. It has been justly condemned by many great au thorities for its power of breaking the view that a strong will that survives it has become as steel in the fire. After two years of novitiate they spend about seven years in general study— three on philosophy and about five on theology, besides some six or seven in teaching. One can understand from that why the Jesuits have been the best-equipped schoolmasters the world has known. The internal regulations of the society are very similar to those of an army in respect of obedience and executive. There are at the present time 15,500 in the world, collected in to twenty-five provinces under the con trol of provincials. The provinces are grouped into five assistancies, ivhich include, as a rule, the races of the same tongue. Each assistancy has an assistant, who represents it, and acts as adviser to the general. Every official, except the general, who is elected for life, and can only be de posed for some moral, personal error (such a thing has not occurred in the 400 years of its existence) is elected for a term. An oflicer who may be in the ranks again tomorrow has a strong Incentive against peremptory or dictatorial behavior. The general, then, is ruler for life of an extremely carefully organized army, which is ex quisitely trained in the use of the in tellectual weapon, which speaks every tongue and has influence in every country. And yet among the Jesuits no one is very eager to be general. Every fully professed member is eligible, and may be elected to grasp the handle of what has been compared to a sword with the head at Rome, and the point facing to every corner of the world but none are. as a rule ambitious. No one may refuse the office if elected. The general of the society is one of the hardest-worked men in a hard working world. Every member of the 15,500 may write in complaint or for advice to the very reverend father (he is familiarly known in Rome as the "Black Pope") and though there is a permanent staff of secretaries, the^ general Is supposed.- to pass every reply. Moreover, he must control men, many of whom are more brilliant than himself, and tremendously strong willed, and in addition he has to con duct the external relations of the so ciety. The political influence of the Black Pope is a matter of history. On the death of the Jesuit general, a vicar general whom he has appoint ed takes command till the new general is elected.—London Daily Mail. MAN HATER WKltS NINTH TIME.

The production is in round numbers 1 1-2 millions, and the area 43,000 miles, or about equal to that of the State of Virginia. Of the imports 45 per cent were in 1905 drawn from the United States, and of the exports 86 per cent were sent to the United States. There has been a steady gain in the share of the imports drawn from the United States, the share in 1894 being 39 per cent in 1902, 42 per cent, and in 1905, 45 per cent. The share of the exports sent to the United States was, in 1894, 85 per cent in 1902, 77 per cent, and in 1905, 86 per cent Of the exports during the fiscal vear 1905, amounting to 110 million 'dol lars, sugar alone is valued at 63 mil lions, tobacco, crude and manufac tured, 27 millions, and fruits about 3 millions.

The young man had risen promptly and was bowing the old lady to his seat. But the old lady hesitated. "Do I look eccentric to you?" she asked severely. "Not at all," replied the young man. "Or worth $75,000?" "Oh. no." "Or as if I should go straight home and alter my will in your favor?" "1 assure you such a thought never entered my head." "Thank you," she said. "I'm right glad of a chance to sit down, but I don't want any misunderstanding about it."

Presently he met a lady. "Do you want to know something?" he remarked. "The President of Yale College won't have any bath this morning. Do you want to know why? 'Cause I have got the plug to the bathtub in my pocket, and It's going to stay there, see?"—Life.
