Frederick Waidc's appearance last evening at Turner hall, In the play of Damon and Pythias, was deserving of a larger audience. To an artist of hit finish and ambition ll must have been depressing Indeed to observe so little appreciation of the legitimate In our midst. There were not over 300 present, whereas Turntr hall should have been crowded. His Damon was a gem In Its way. His struggles between love of countiy and de votion to family were naturally portrayed, particularly in the parting scene between Hcrmton, his wife, and himself. The ab sence of rant, once so common with the mus cular actors of a school now rapidly passing away, shows that he has studied the master pieces of the best authors to advantage. Mr. Malone, as Pythias, was well received and called once before the curtain, though It was difficult to perceive wherein the audience could perceive any merit worthy si this recognition, Miss Annie Doyle, as Calanthe, the betrothed of Pythias, grew In favor as the piece pro gressed, and her fine acting in the scene where block and headsman awaited her Pythias was Indeed commendable. It Is to be regretted that Mr. Warde'a support is not worthy of his leadership. The contrast is one very apparent to the audience, and must be trying to Mr. Warde himself. From a glance at the box sheet for to-night a large attend ance Is promised. The play for to-night is one that never tires the student of Shakes peare, that of Julius Cesar.

AN OLD CITIZEN SEATS HIMSELF ON THETRACKOFTHE INTERNATIONAL AND IS KILLED. II la Taken to Santa llosa Hospital-Ills Lags Cut Off and Head Mashed-He Dies at an Early Hour This Morning. A tenlble accident took place last evening about three quarters of a mile north of the depot on the International track. An old German named Gustav Knaub was the vic tim of the accident. He bad been drinking for some time past and this together with the weakness of old age had rendered him moody and captlcious. He seemed very much chagrined that one of his daughters was about to marry, and had called on Justice Adam to take steps to prevent it on yesterday morning. He left here in a wild condition and the last seen of him was about 7 o'clock last evening, when he was sitting on the track as the train came bounding in from the North. Thoie who saw him were too late to avert the calamity which followed. His legs were severed by the train, being only held together by the skin and a few tendons, while his forehead was crushed, exhibiting the brains as they protruded from a cavity where two fingers could he readily in serted. A Mr. Baker was the first to discover him as he got out with his lantern above the sitcb. He was placed to one side of the track for a few minutes, till a special could be immediately sent out to bring in the injured man. ur. Her II and several others went out to aid the victim. He had apparently no pulse when first lound, though some more promising symptoms were shown as he was carried back to the depot. From here he was conveyed to the Santa Rosa hospital. Dr. Herffdld all that human skill could devise tn soothe the pains of the unfortunate old msn, as he was convinced from the first that ih case mast terminate fatally and in a brlel space. Alter much suffering the In lured man expired this motniuit at 1 nVWIr Judge Adam holds an inquest this afternoon at half past 3 o'clock. The deceased leaves a wife and three children, one of them the wife of Mr. Michael Russl. He was 75 years om and was known to many here while en gaged in the vegetable business. It should be remarked here that the train which ran over him was nearly two hours behind time, ana perhaps the old man, living for years near the depot and acouainted with It. ir.tn schedule, had set him down thinking that he woum rest awhile, unconscious of the speedy coming 01 me Delated train.
