mereK For you should leallze that
the clown is but a slightly modern
ircd presentment of the low-comedy
ilc II of the old-time miracle plays
a stage peisonage who was made the
ohiect of abuse and ridicule.
I he stage deil in those days had
a speaking part usuallv When adopted
into that form of dramatic entertain
ment whirh we call pantomime, he
b. nmr. like his fellow aetoi s. dumb
And epcechless he has continued to be

Harlequin likewise ie bv origin a de

s ipcrn itiirvl attributes
i r is indeed the element of the super.
rati r,il In pantonine that intrigues
pues and fascinates the spectator, to
whom the effect is greatly heightened
If he Is able, to realirc that what he
witnesses is reallv an ancient miracle
play iruch modified, It is true, but
orrespondlng in its essentials to the
! nd of stage performance out of which,
modern drama sprang.
Devils of various species played
p eminent parts on the mediaeval
tage The "harkek-in-folk were

of one kind or another Harlequin
"imself sole survivor of the breed, bc
ame later on a comic demon, a kind

town, his role is not one of folly.
Mysterv envelopes him Dressed in a
shining armor of spangles, he defies
hjman Ingenults to catch him, and.
availing himself of devices superna
tural, he clothes himself at an in
stint's notice in the gleamlngs of his
word and va-iishes from view.
Marked liy Magical Happening.
The whole course of the pantomime
plai is mirked by one magical happen

Fveo the scenic effects are designed

and Pantaloon among them, appeared
in what were called "impromptu
comedies" a kind of dramatic per
formance, high! popular throughout
Italy at that period, in which only
the plot in outline had w ritten and
definite form, the dialogue being con
tributed in extempore fashion bj the
actors as thej went alone
Columbine was origmallv the
daughter of Harlevquin But later on
the dramatic relationship was altered,
and she became, as she has since re
mnined his "lady love" Thus, when
we go to see a pantomime arranged
on the orouer traditional lines, what
I wr witness Is a play In which a vii
I lage maiden is courted hv a fasi mat
ing ana auveniurous love-r w-iium, on
account of the tricks he plavs on peo

An Interesting survival of this latter
custom is seen in Harlequin, who Is

importantly to do with the mvsterv
that envelops him Also it is to be no
ticed that his head is invariablv
shaved perhaps because a bare poll
Is appropriate to a demon His two
other characteristic attributes are
skin-tight parti-colored habit and a
gilded lath sword
Now, why the sword To find the
answer one must go back to the old
"morality plays," in which the role of
whatever was wickedest wis taken
b a character known as the "Vice"
It W'as the business of the ice to give
comic relief by his ridiculous actions
and buffooneries In truth he seems
to have been the original of the Fool
of old I'ngllsh drama. He always
carried a gilded sword of lith and
this appendage was bequeathed hy

Origin of the 'Name.
Tuma (Yahraayo. "son of the cap
tsin") is a name mlstakenlv applied
bv the early Spanish missionaries to
the Cuehan Indians thev found orcupv -Ing
the vallev of the Colorado In the
vicinity of what is now the city of
Yuma.
Onate visited them in l0i and
describes them as a superior people
physically, well developed, brave ind
industrious, practicing a rude agricul
ture and living in permanent settle
ments. In 11700 the celebrated Jesuit
Eusebio Kino, was at Yuma and estab
lished a mission among the indians.
but. lacking necessarv support, the
mission was abandoned and later de
mroved bv the Indians The climate

Harlequin, having undergone the
process of transformation which con
verted him from a demon pure and
simple into a species of Clown, adopted
the gilded sword and motlev dress ap
propriate to the latter, xne garD in
which lie appears today is much like
that of the Tools of the old dramatic
poets Iteeems anciently to have been
composed of patches, as if Ills ragged
clothes had been often mended this,
indeed, being the apparent origin of
the peculiar costume of Fools, who
were supposeel to lie retaineei bv the
nobility out of charity
Modern (limn n Mngc Hustle.
The clown of modern pantomime, as
distinguished from Harlequin, is a
stage rustic a sill, boont.li person
with suggestions of the Jester of the
disabethan drama. He Is to some ex
tent a composite There has been a rfood
deal of puzzled Inquirv about the or
igin of the tufUd wig and the whitened
and queerly painted face, but the ex
planation seems to be that these char
acteristics are handed down from rep
resentations of devils in the mediaeval
miracle plavs I-ikewise, perhaps, the
baggy dress
In France, his birthplace, the agile
demon with the sword of lath has been
superseded to a great extent as a
popular favoilte by Pierrot The lat
ter, derived from the Italian dumb
drama, has the clown s white face and
baggy costume but the dress, alwavs
white. Is as rialntv as possible, and
Pierrot himself, while of a freakibh
disposition, is never grotesque On
the contrarj. he is a romantic and
often pathetic figure an incarnation
of merrv thoughtlessness. pursuing
with rierrette, his feminine counttr
part and complement, a love affair
that is only too apt to end unhappily.
Transferred to Snvrdust Iling.
The clown of the modern circus is
simplj the i haracter of pantomime
transferred to tht sawdust ring He
is alwavs dumb, depending upon ges
ture to take the place of speech hat
he has to do is of more impoi tain e
than might appear, for it is his busi
ness to fill In gaps between acts and to
hold the attention of the audience
whenever It tends to flag He must
be not onlv a clever pantomlmist, but
also an accomplished t qucstmn and
acrobat.
It is related that, about the vear 1640.
there lived near Naples a vintag'r
named Puccio d'Antello, who. in addi
tion a wit surprislnglj acute posses- d
a physical aspect most grotesque and
drolls He was a humpback and his
voice had a peculiar and laughi'ile
equeak, but his most remarkable fea
ture was a trulv enormous nose Be
ing induced to Join a troupe of stroll
ing players who presented in the
towns and villages of southern Italv
such impromptu comedies as have al
ready been described, he made so firth
ful a sucess that, upon his death, other
actors kept cm with his part, with the
aid of a mask, a hump, and an imita
tion of his toice.
Beginning of Punch and Judy.
The name of this notable personage
was later distorted to Buloinella, the
French Pollchinelle and the Knglish
Punch In the course of time he was
transferred in effigv to the miniature
stage, as a puppet. But. be It noticed,
the "Pnch of Judv" drama of today
is still an impromptu comedv of the an
e lent type, being unwritten, and the
ilialogue supplied in more or less ex
tempore fashion by the parclpaetic
show man
Those who have gone most deeplv
into the study of such matters are of
opinion that Mr Punch Ilk. Hirlr
ijuin auel Clown, is in elncet line of
legitimate descent from the low -comedy
