Contemporaneous service of father and
son in work for Uncle Sam is not an un
usual thing, but there are marked occa
8 ions when this contemporaneous ser
v i ce becomes remarkable by reason of
ce- tain unparalleled circumstances sur
rounding it.
The recent death of Thomas Irancis
Bayard of Delaware, has furnished op
por tunitv for widespread comment on
the fact that Bayard and his father
served concurrently in the bmted States
.Senate.
] t waa stated recently that the con
temporaneous seryice of thesotwoBay

without a parallel. This statement is
i ncorrec t in so far as it goes. J here is

I However, the case of the Bayard's of

IN THIS CITY AND OUT.
People Here and in the Country Seem
to be Alike About Cleaning
Off Snow.
The Street and Sewer Commissioners
of tliis city are very much agitated over
the condition of the city's streets. Ac
tion on the part of the department has
caused some talk about the streets.
A resident of Delaware avenue said
yesterday: "In one respect, at least, the
people of this city and the country are
very much alike, that is in the matter of
clearing off their sidewalks after a snow
fall. One would think that in the city
sidewalks would be cleaned off prompt
ly, but as a matter of fact they are just
as likely to be left uncleaned here as in
any small town. And this is always as
tonishing to me. I should think that in
a big city in the business streets, any
way, where there are many passersby, |
every owner or occupier would keep the
sidewalk in front of his premises reason
ably clear of the snow as it fell, to say
nothing of clearing it off after the snow
fall had ceased.
"And there are people who do this, a
J good many of them. The majority of
people clean off the snow aitcr the storm,
but if it is a light fall there are some who
do not clear it off at all, or who delay
about it. I have often seen, at one time
and another, in the busiest streets, a
snowfall in front of an unoccupied store,
left there until it was worn away or
melted away. But it ought not to he so.
I haven't fallen down and hurt myself,
and I don't believe in Government in
terference with the citizen, but I certain
ly do think that every man ought to be
compelled to clean his sidewalk of snow
and keep it clean; and it ought to bo pos
sible to find somebody responsible for
the sidewalks in front of the stores un
occupied. These are not many, but the
patches of dirty, icy snow Been at times
in front of some of them ought not to be
there."

THIS GYPSY NOT A GYPSY
Roving Rand of Boh.'minus Going
Through the State With a Child
Who Longs for Her Home.
Last Wednesday afternoon a little girl,
aged about 12 years, stopped at the resi
dence of Henry Kaas, on tiie SeveiBon
farm, near Clayton, now owned by St.
Joseph's Home, and asked to be allowed
to stay there,
been living with the gypsies who are en
camped near Blackbird.
The little girl was very bright and
claimed she had been treated very badly
by them, and that her father lived in
Holyoke, Massachusetts, that one of the
women of this wandering band was her
aunt, in whose care her father had
placed her, but that she treated her so
cruelly she could not stay with her, and
ran away with the hope that some kind
friend would send her to her father. The
little girl says she is not a gypsy, nor did
she look like one.
Tiie girl remained at the residence of
Mr. Kaas until Thursday when the fam
ily took her to Clayton and laid the case
before Squire Casperson, who decided to
send her to the home of Destitute Chil
dren in Wilmington. While making ar
rangements to do this tiie gypsy woman
appeared on tiie scene and demanded
tiie return of the child, claiming she was
her niece. Tiie Squire gave up the child
and she is again with the gypsies.—

The musical part of the poem isacantata

Verdi completed the eighty-first year
of his age some four weeks ago, and to
celebrate the event a newspaper pub

verdo meaning green in Italian—and
printed with green ink! Mascagni, Ijeon
eavalla, Puccini,Bovio,Massenet, l'otigin,
Claretie, all contributed to it, and, more
over, it gave illustrations of the house
wherein Verdi was born, his villa of
Santa Agatha, pictures of Rigoletto and
Falstaff, and portraits of Verdi from
babyhood till now.
The show at the theatre in Dawson
City is a continuous performance, be

tor about seventeen hours. The price of
a seat is $2.50, and there are no reserved
seats, There are tables inside, however,
and the playgoers there are generally
thirsty, so that the principal profit in
the show business is in the sale of
drinks. Beer costs $0 a bottle; wine $40
a pint bottle. Whisky can be had for
50 cents a drink, and a rattling good
cigar can be bought for 16 cents.

Keene, Joseph Proctor, Thomas Whiffcn,
Joseph W. Shannon, Charles T. Parsloe,
W. J. Scanlon, John Wild, Harry Mere
dith, Charlotte Thompson, Margaret
Mather, Carrie Turner, and others who
adorned it. The deaths of these actors
says Harrison Grey l'iske, sum up a
great public loss, but the loss to the pro

who have departed were artists wliose
work was an education to the rising gen

The twenty-first year of Gilbert and
Sullivan's comic opera, "The Sorcerer,"
lias just been celebrated at the Savoy
Theatre, London, and it is said that
during this period the British public
has paid some $15,000,000 to witness
performances of the woiks of these
authors. The American public has
also during this period paid a snug
sum to enjoy Gilbert and Sullivan's
works; but in recent seasons, says the
Dramulic Mirror, there lias been a
growtli here of native production, and
there are one or two American comic
opera partnerships that twenty years
from now may make a showing that will
parallel that noted of the English col
laborators.
Julia Arthur played Rosalind for the
first time in New York last week. Says
the Evening Sun: "Miss Arthur's Rosa

This actrese, in choosing these two
characters, has strayed entirely ont of
her line. There is no character in
Shakespeare, with the possible excep
tion of Beatrice, wbioh could have
shown that actress' weak points so com
pletely. As soon as she persuades her
self that as an actress of passionate
roles a line future lies before her, and
renounces onco and for all the idea of
being a comedienne, then Miss Arthur
will find that critics and public alike
will join again in that chorus of praise
which was brought about hy her per
formances of Mercedes and Clo Wild
airs."
