nmonu the theatrical hills announced for

of visitors who will come to the city. But
from Mrs. Culberson's standpoint, which
Is unquestionably the true one, nothing
could bo better designed to meet the merry

The management of the Gilliss theater
now handsomer and more Imposing than
ever Is to he heartily congratulated on
the promising result of its costly und haz
ardous expetlment, for it Is probable that
the new form of entertainment has come
to stav. The "continuous performance" is
evidently "It." No othor system has over
furnished such a huge amount of legitimate
entertainment at ridiculously low ratea of
admission. The opening bill was surpris
ingly complete. The vaudeville features
were well rounded. The second week's
programme Is a palpable advance on Us
predecessor, and evidences the utmost lib
erality and untiring effort. The bill is
headed by the world-famous Billy P.leo
and his ''Mastodon Minstrels." In this
aggregation of comedians and vocalists aro
live of the greatest of tho original Haverly
minstrels, viz.: Billy Bice, Banks Winter,
Charles Ernest, E.M. Kayne and Burt Mor
ris, in conjunction with sti'-h line artists ns
George Castle, Otis Hlggins, Albert Haw
thorne. Perry Denton, Charles Carruthers,
etc. Then comes that amazing bahy, Gertio
Cochrane, whose astounding mental and
memorizing feats have been aptly termed
"the eighth wonder of tho world;" Lilly
Laurel, the Hnsdtsn singing comedienne;
McClnud and Melvlllo, harpists and danc
ers; the "Grent Stuart." male soprano, und
several others. All these star features will
he seen before and between the acts of
"Passion's Slave." presented by the (!il
Uss stock company, improved and aug
mented. There will be two continuous per
formances dally, without stops, waits or
overtures the matinees from 1 to 5:30. nnd
evening performance's from 7 to 11. Despite
the tremendous list of attractions there
will be no advance In tho prices, which will
range from 10 to 30 cents.

Joseph Brooks, In Chicago, explains that
the theatrical syndicate, which was de

quite n different thing than that i.-port
led people to suppose. "Jt was publish' d
that the amount of capital subscrlb I was

mistake. The uggregatc wealth of those
interested is JI.OTO.OOO. Should it become
necessary, a capita! of $l,t"JO,000 coulu be se
cured. The syndicate is not a trist. I;

Achilla Pagaiiinl, the son of the great
maestro, lives st Parma, but on m omit
of his Infirmities rarely leave's his upait
ments. Upon hci-lng of the nrrh.il of
Ondrlcek, he nut a request to the liohe
mian, nsklnc that he be good enuiigh to
visit him, as he was curious to know tho
man Who was s-o often placed on a parall 1
with his father. Ondrlcek went immedi
ately to Puganlni's house nnd played a
number of the nvn-ter's compositions. The
sun was deeply nftected and said: "I rec
ounlze the bowing of my poor father."
Enthused by the playing ot Ondri ek,
Acl.ille showed hlin the llttlo Atnatl violin,
on nhlcli his father played at tlm age of
7, nnd presented emdricek with a pirirnlt
and a number of autographs of his father.
Ondrlcek then played Pagnnlnl s grand
concerto and Achilla, lu a paroxysm ot
enthusiasm, Immediately wont by carriage
to the iiiuniclpnlity nf Parma and asked to
have opened for the llrt time since the
celebrated maestro's death, Paaanlnl's
'tomb, so that Ondrlcek might view the
mortal remains. They nt once assltinod
masons to open the case and the body,
which had been embalmed, was found In
tact. Ondrlcek remained there looking at
tho great master for a long time. He is
the only person upon whom that excep.

Chleily to gain an Increase of territory
fur the epread of blavery, this country be
came iovolvnl in a war with Mexico over
th admission of Texas. Although it Is
easy taiough now to see that we needed the
new lands we were to gain by fuivj of
arms, and that without them the proper
Mowlh of tho United Btatis was not pos
sible, it was hard to foresee this linn, What
was plain at that time was that both the
motive and those who were urging

worthy. This Is what Lowell discerned
