Manners and morals are closely con

Example goes a mile where pre
cept goes an inch with children,
and I believe that the irreverence
toward their elders which is justly
blamed in children of the present age
(and, perhaps justly also, in especial,
among Americans) is largely owing to the
greater freedom of companionship
with their elders now always al
lowed to children. Few people will
restrain themselves in speech on account
of the presence of the little ones, and
these consequently hear an immense
deal of personal comment and criticism
which they ought not to hear, if they are
to keep that respect for their elders in
general which surely it iB desirable they
should retain so long as it is possible.
To the same cause is due the sophisti
cation of children, so noticeable, and to
my mind, so deplorable. A boy need not
be a baby because he does not know at
ten what his grandfather did not know
until he was twenty. The modest sim
plicity and the fresh and tender bloom
of girlhood—no, it has not all disappear
ed yet! I believe that a child, who,
without being coddled and "babified,"
yet is kept a child so long as, according
to its years, it is called one, has a physi
cal advantage over the child too early
initiated into the knowledge of manhood

THE LOS ANGELES DAILY HERALD: WEDNESDAY MORNING .ICILY 18, 1888.
Fanny Davenport In "Fedora" at
Another large audience assembled last
evening to witness Miss Davenport's im
personation of the title role of Victorien
Sardou's celebrated drama Fedora.
This play possesses the unusual and
somewhat harrowing peculiarity of hav
ing a distinct, thrilling climax in each
«ct, instead of leading up to a gradual
culmination. But Miss Davenport's in
genuity divests this distinguishing and
unique feature of all monotouy by de
lightful and refreshing variations in the
treatment of it. In the first act our in
tently appreciative orbs observe a very
fine demonstration of the law of equil
ibrium in the adroit, If somewhat peril
ous manner in which she poises, grief
stricken, on the prostrate form of her de
ceased husband. In the second, the ani
mating support of gratified vengeance.
In the third, a neat exposition of that
tiresome and inscrutable old Sphinx
riddle of the enigmatical animal that
walks first on four legs, then on two,
then on three, in a transcendental
manner. In the fourth, an enlivening
and vivifying introduction of child
hood's chief diversion of "see-saw,"
with the "now you go up, and now you
go down" principle greatly accentuated.
The irrepressible elasticity with which
Miss Davenport "went up," after having
very forcibly "gone down," removes the
chief objection of fond mamas to their
offspring improvising temporary tobog
gan slides with the assistance of the
sofa and the maternal cutting board; in
fact, many mamas turned their backs
on that drop curtain, convinced, by ocu
lar evidence, of the harmless nature of
Fedora is not Sardou's most masterful
effort. He does not allow his heroine
auy gay or light veins which always
serve to intensify the dark shades of pas
sion and render them electrifying. The
plot is developed too rapidly; and the
abrupt confession in the second act re
laxes the interest somewhat, while
the delicately veneered suggestive
nees that attracts at times is vul
garized into a broadness that repels.
But it is a play of ungoverned passions
and'as such, if it did not enlist the warm
est sympathies of the cool-headed Ameri
can audience, it at least riveted their
Miss Davenport is a talented, cultured
woman, but she is not a genius. She
lacks, above all, quiet, veiled concentra
tion. "Fedora" is an impulsive, deter
mined woman, and, considering her
"strong provocations, bitter, burning
wrongs," Miss Davenport's defense of
I.oris seems almost inconsistent; while
her exulting, triumphant glee, at an ac
knowledgment that confirms her suspi
cions, has a superficial ring to it. There
is a marked improvement in the third
act; and, in the fourth, she entirely re
deems herself. Then it is that she
attains the polish of the true artist. Her
"Fedora" is the embodiment of the lov
ing, nervous, repentent, fearing woman.
As she pleads with Loris, her voice
softens to a doubtful, coaxing
sobbing-like quality that is most flexible
and magnetic. The hesitating, tremu
lous prayers for pardon, the fierce love,
the soulful remorse, the great horror of
death, and the vivid imagination and
feeble, wandering gestures of the dying
woman, are admirably portrayed, and
evince an intellectual comprehension,
and an appropriation of the capabilities
of the scene, which, in conjunction with
a majestic and voluptuous presence, an
undulating an imperious movement,
beautiful arms, bust and chin and a
sweet smile, succeeds in insuring the
enjoyment and compelling the admira
tion of her hearers.
Mr. Melbourne McDowell rendered
Miss Davenport an exceptionally good
support. Though somewhat affected in
his gestures and poses, stagey in his car
riage, and inclined a trifle to rant in his
declamations, he invested the char
acter of "Loris Ipanoff" with im
passioned emotion and keen feeling.
There is some fault to be found in his
enunciation which is not always reso
nant, put prone to rage on "the cheap
and chippy chopper" order. His apprecia
tion of the statuesque is quite pardonable,
however, for he is the possessor of a
magnificent physique, and his facial ex
pression is remarkably good. The ac
cusation that Mr. McDowell brutalizes
the representation in the last act is un
just, for while his action is, to say the
least, rather vigorous, the author's de
lineation hardly admits of that "sweet
souled endurance which makes clean
the iron hands of anger."
Miss Sadie Montgomery's efforts well
merited the frequent applause .of the
spectators, which greated her appearance
as the "Countess Olgo Soukareff."
Mr. T. McCullough Ross and Mr.
Charles J. Edmonds enacted their respec
tive roles with much credit.
