Tlio opostlo of rcsthotlclsm, who hoi created
more or a craze than anything ilnco "rinaforc,"
made his debut beforo n Woshlngton audience at
IJncoln Hall taut evening. JjTnco Mr. Wlldo has
bcenjn tlio city his movements bno been follow cd
with crcditablo nccuracy byTltr ItsrunMCAK, and
through ila coluinm has tlio hero of tho sunflower
lind Illy ult red iomo bits of trstlictlc cloquenco
that were fresh and now. Tho curiosity toscoand
hear the great Oscar was such that nearly cs err
scat In tho halt was secured beforo tho opening of
tho doorit,,and tho audlcnco assembled was excep
tionally brilliant, Including tho representatives of
FAsmovAnu ami cciTunin tjociitTY.
Many went from Mr. Wlldo'a lecture to tho Spanish
Minister's reception, and so their appearanco In
tho hall was In full os. cnlng costume, whlrh added
to tho brilliancy of tho scene. When tho hour of
eight arrived Colonel W. K. Mono and Mr. lido
stepped from behind tlio heavy curtains and In a
lew brief words tlio Culouil presented tlio (esthete,
who, after placing his manuscript upon tlio small
desk, began his address, Tho appearance of tlio
stage wos anything but beautiful, tho heavy cur
tains forming a sombre background, and tho only
articles of furniture being tho reading-desk, n
small tabic, upon which was a glass ot water, and
a foot-stool Tho appearanco or Mr, Uldu lias
been critically described In thcsocolumnf, and It

pitcnt-lcathcrshocs, tied with wldo black ribbon,
and licnuy black rosettes. When Mr. Wlldo com
monccd there wns an expression of uneasiness nn
the facts icil the audience, on account or tlio dim
in ty with which ho was understood. Ills
volco Is not strong nud ho has
hot unpleasant English Intonation, with tlio
rising Inflection, which Is so difficult for
American cars to understand. At tho commence
ment ho essajed a comersntlonal tone, and In
that way woaoicn more Indistinct than toward
tho clno or his address, when ho warmed up and
was qulto plainly understood. Tho Impullctico of
tho audience soon beenroo inanircst, andshortly
ono man went out for a close, then two retired for
two lines, then somoladlcstook courago to mako
their exit for Ico cream, and probably fifty ormoro
retired beforo tho close of tho address.

ing n story In n country etoro who alwnjs told tho
samo story and never; mads It interesting, aud ns
soon as ho began the others would drop otT one by
one, urdl he found ho was tilling his story to tho
stove. Thoso svho were in tho bad scats wiro
fortunate, for they could slldo out easily. Thoso
who wcro In the body of tho house were uneasy bo
cause ilhey could not get nsvay. When ho said that
they hod listened to "Patience" far ono hundred
nights and they might stand him for ono nlghtlt
looked as if tbo audlcnco would hardly havo the
patience to wait. There wcro but
mm s lurries ok ai i iavsk
ono when ho said that In order to be n successful
poet a man should learn to set type, ono w hero ho
told of the Instruction ho received to the In
quiry alto what books a poet should read, tho re
ply being tho dictionary, because all thobcaiillrul
words wcro there, and tho other when ho fulded
up his raonuscriptand retired. There wcro Ihrco
v crsons who wcro thoroughly satlsPed with tho
lecture tlio proprietor ol tho ball, tho resthuo,
himself, becauso his salary was assured, and tho
manager. As for the audience, they had paid
their money and couldn't get away, and their
principal anxiety was for tho conclusion. Tho tin
