Chield Falls Five Stories and Is Not
Fatally Hurt.
NEW YORK, July 31. ? Fourteen
year old Frederick Sullivan, of 1803
Third avenue, fell five stories from
the roof down the -alrshaft yesterday
afternoon and was not fatally Injured.
The boy's escape from death was owing
to an open mubrella, which he
had in his hand when he fell off the
roof. His mother had sent hira up to
get the umbrella. He found It open,
and did not take the trouble to close'
it
The boy was still clinging to the
handle of the umbrella when he was1
licked up at the bottom of the alrshaft.
It had served him as a parachute and
greatly broken his fall.

AT THE GRAND OPERA HOU8E. |
THE PERRIN8 AND WALKER AND ,
BURRELL PUT ON TWO BIG j
VAUDEVILLE ACTS.
When the'fliut performance started ,
at'the Grand Opera House last night ,
the theater was well filled and befoie ,
the performance was" half trfer the
house "was crowded tb the doors. It
has always jbew claimed (hat Pair- J
mont amusement lovers are very die- (
cernlng and know .when something o( ]
unusual merit is to be offered. No
mistake was made last night, for the i
vaudeville bill put on was wlthqpt exception
the best that has "ever been
seen In this city. (
The PerrinB, who open the perform- (
t ance, put on a very strong comedy |
sketch and Introduces some good ,
songs that they know how to sing.
Bold Mr. ana Mrs. rerrins nave bwj |
voices, and theifr sketch is very amus- ,
Ing. Mrs. Ferrins made a big hit ia (
her character work, and the appear (
ance she made in doing her straight
work pleased the audience very much, {
as she has a charming personality and {
a very sweet voice.
Ed. Long and his family of trained ;
fox terriers, held the rapt attention ot
' the audience, and the numerous tricks (
done by the dogs were almost marvel- T
ous. Somersault Tony is well trained
in bis acrobatic acts, and all of the
dogs?seven in number ? displayed
wonderful Intelligence. Mr. Long, the
owner nnd trainer of the dogs, is very
proud of them and is all the time
teaching them new tricks. It may be
of Interest to note that these dogs
are all of one family, the mother being
one of the best performers. To- t
night will be the last appearance of
Mr. Long and his dogs.
Walker and Burrell's big musical
comedy act, which closed the bill, was
the best thing of the kind ever seen C
here, and both artists were at home
with any of the large number of Instruments
on which they perform. The
cello solo of Miss Burrell wns espe- c
cially line, and she had to respond to ^
several encores. The Imitations given n
of a "Chinese Orchestra," furnished 1;
much amusement. These clever peo- 'n
pie have made a careful study of Chi- u
nese music and use the Instruments a
of the Chinaman and give perfect ren- fi
dltions of the popular airs of that a
country. n
The motion pictures? "The Holy d
City," "Kidnapped" and "An Icy Day," s;
exhibited last night were pronounced s
by all as the best yet offered. The s:
illustrated song was also very good, li
but on account of It having been used i'
here before a new one will be put on b
to-night. o
For Saturday afternoon a special d
matinee is being arranged and on this ft
occasion a "Teddy Bear" will be giv- o
en to one of the little girls present,
nnd a pocket knife will be awarded to n:
one of the boys attending. Every, tl
child present will have a chance to,a
draw these prizes. ti
Tonight will close the engagement of y
the bill now on and on the last three h
nights of the week three new nets l<
will be Introduced, as follows: Ed. i*
Gardner, In a comedy singing and Jug- ti
gling act; Billy Durant, In his big mus- li
leal act, and the celebrated Chatham p
I
Sisters, singing and dancing corned- w
lennes. ' t<

WHAT NATURE MEANS.
)ne Man Cannot Grasp and Interpret
It All.
"The more I study, the more I am
onvlnced," says John Burroughs !n
Tie Delineator for August, "that one
inn's faculties canna^, penetrate wholf
this noble, fascinating mystery of
ature. Nature Is all things to all
sen. She is one thing to the artist,
nother to the scientist, another to the
armer, still another to the observer
nd nature-lover like myself. We do
ot see the same th'ngs because we
o not have an equal Interest In the
ame things. Or, If we do see the
nine things, we Jo not all get the
ame Impression from what we see. It
> only Important that eve get a true
npresslon, that we do not see Joule.
or, if we arc seeing for purposes
f science or natural history, that wo
o not substitute what we think or
tncy for what we -ealiy see, as some
f our late nature writers have done.
"My own chief Interest is In the
ilnor phases of nature, principally in
le play of wild life that goes on all
bout me. For big sane, one must
avel far; but stay at home and keep
uur eyes and ears open and you may
ave some fresh bit of live natural bls>ry
almost every day in the year. If
r.e had a sympathetic record of all
le little Incidents that occur In the
ves of the denizens the nearest
Iece of woods during the year, he

MAKES STATEMENT THAT RE
. PORT IS FALSE AND SHE
DOESNT KNOW HOW IT
; / ' 8TA'RTED.
It -NEW YQRK, JulyEvelyn
i:Nesblt Thaw gnve an authoritative
{ statement 'yesterday concerning 'her'
t plans, declaring that she had no pr?s.
ent Intention of returning to the stage,
, but will devote her energies to the
t study of music. This statement was
. called out by a published report that !
, Mrs. Thaw Intended to take a leading
, role at a Broadway theater. Mrs.
Thaw visited her husband1 In the
, Tombs, after which she made the
! statement in wmcn sue aecmreu bub
had no Intention ot returning to the
) stage. Mrs. Thaw was dressed In a
dark brown cloth suit and from a black
. sailor bat fell a white veil, which did
not conceal the frequent smiles which
, punctuated her story of her plans.
- "No, I hare not the slightest Intention
of going back to the stage,"
Mrs. Thaw said, "and I am quite sure
that I'do not know where such a report
came from. I have started to
take singing lessons at the suggestion
of my physician, who says that
I have a slight afTectlon of the vocal
chords. My health, otherwise, Is perfect
No, I have never even dreamed
1 of going on the stage. When I first
went on the boards I had the Idea I
"was going to be Sarah Bernhardt the
second. That Idea soon (led after one
or two rehearsals and now 1 would
never think of going back on the
stage. I am simply going to study
music to strengthen my voice and develop
It but It's too early yet to say
what I shall be able to do, for I have
obly taken one lesson.
"I Intend.to remain here during the
summer and fall till the trial. I shall
not return to Pittsburg. I spend as
much of my time with Mr. Thaw as
the prison rules allow, but I found so
much time on my hands in the afternoons
and evenings that 1 took up
the study of composition, English history
and philosophy. Now I am busy
all the time."
Mrs. Thaw dally visits the Tomfbs
prison In which her husband Is confined
awaiting his second trial for the
killing of Stanford White on the Madison
Square roof garden a year ago.
Mrs. Thaw resides In a secluded uptown
apartment hotel.
