Daughter is a spicy and well-written play

Tho Ohio custom of pardoning one
convict on Thanksgiving day is a very pret

ference, but if ono why not two! If Jus
tice demands tho punishment of criminals,
sentiment should not work their release.

Mr. French's Lecture.
The opening entertainment, on Friday
evening, of the library course was a highly
interesting lecture by tho celebratod Chi
cago artist and art critic, W. M. R. French,
profusely illustrated by rapid and skillful
crayon drawings, in black and white and
colors. Mr. French is an easy and pleasant
talker and held tho closet attention of his
audience while ho rapidly and accurately
sketched beautiful landscapes, figures of
men, women, children and animals, artistic
designs and other exponents of idoal aud
decorative art, and was frequently and en
thiisimticully applauded. His lecture was
particularly appropriate as the beginning
of a carefully arranged course and should
have been greeted with a crowded audience
room, although tho night was somewhat
inclement. Tha library hall, in which the
lectures of the course, with ono exception,
will bo held, Is comfortablo, beautiful, per
fictly lighted, warmed and ventilated, and
now has tho finishing presenco of a One
piano to add to the interest of the enter
tiiinments. A clarionet sola by Mr, Georgo
