IViullt'ton pliijKocis last night saw the niurh-heialdeU "Clansman," u proiliietlon curtailed by force of the Inadequacy of the lage at the New OreKon, but staged by the best efforts o u company playing under difficul ties and acted to the highest ability of capable players. As la most com panies there were Inequalities In the support, but while the players might have been more evenly balanced there were Bome splendid bits of acting, dis tinct, clear cut cameo-like against the background of the grey and black days of the southern reconstruction. The stage settings showed eviden ces of more than one of the "Clans man's" four seasons, but their air of decayed gentility was In keeping with the time. Only two of the eight horses appeared on the stage, but that was because of Its size and f ir more people were surprised that there were two than were keenly dis appointed in not seeing more. Thomas Dixon's play dramatized from his novels, "The Clansman" and "The leopard's Spots," Is as frankly anti-negro In Its sentiment as the novels were sensational In theirs. The days of the reconstruction were times that tried men's souls nnd although one may condemn the sectional pre judice nnd racial hatred which the play seeks to revive there run through it a stirring, thrilling trum pet call that found a response In tre mendous applause last night In the stand of the Clansmen for the pro tection of the womanhood of the south. Klght or wrong, the Ku Kluk Klan existed nnd fought such battles ns those of the play. Prejudiced or Just, the picture given wa.s the picture ns the south saw it. Its friends de clare the "Clansman" an answer to "I'nide Tom's Cabin" but who shall say. It is sufficient that It Is a goo I melodrama, well played. As Silas Lynch, the negro lieutenant-governor who aspired to the daughter of the northern abolitionist who had given him his position. Charltts Wilson was convincing play ed the part as ho might have lived It. i Franklin Ritchie, the Clansman, was : rr served and sure. TJttle Claire' Mer.xt reaus. the child-victim of a no-I pro brute, was a capable little nc- tress in n different role. Harry Max-j well ns Xelse. and Maude Durand, as Kve, his wife, two old negro servants,' were delightful. Miss Until Hart, I Miss Kimenle Haydcn nnd half a doz-1 en others, played well, but Joseph I Sweeney ns the brute f!us. on trial for' his crime before the Clan In the darkness of Its cave did something powerful nnd horrifying, but reserv ed and with the power of surety. In-I deed, the acting was notable In this j that the players sought no emotional: effects beyond their powers, nor which they did not attain. Wand. Tho Inhabitants ar6 chiefly Moros and a trlbo called Tongnbanos. The latter are the people who use little blowgunn with poisoned darts. They are quite export with thorn. I have bought two of tho guns. I am also the proud possessor of a herd of nine live deer. They are the pigmy deer and when full grown ore liss than 10 Inches high the pret tiest little animals I have ever seen. They are quite tame nnd will feed from my hand. They eat grass, fruit, etc., Just like any other deer. I shall lake them up to the zoological gar den at Manila. The worst drawback to the Island In my estimation Is the great number of snakes found here many of them dangerous. A boa constrictor, 17 feet long, was killed within 10 feet of my door three weeks ago. This was a small one ns they grow here. DESPONDENT Gtltr KESITES IIEIt DESd'EItS. Jierlln, Oct. 6. A remarkable scene was witnessed nt Trepptow, on the hank of the I'pper Spree. . At 6 p. m. a young girl of about IS. who had been walking up and down, suddenly threw herself Into the river. A shopkeeper named Hauer, who hap pened to be near, Jumped In after her, and, notwithstanding her endeavors to disengage herself, succeeded In bringing her to shore, where n num ber of hinds were ready to receive her. Iiy this time Ratter's own strength had ben exhausted nnd he sank back Into the water. The girl thereupon dived In after him, and, proving herself- a good swimmer, brought him blck In safety. ,she then walkeJ away, refusing to give her name. SOWING ALFALFA AMONG APPLE TKEES.

I do not favor sowing any kind of per manent grass crop In the orchard simply for the reason that the roots of the growing and bearing trees will require all the strength there Is In the soil; nnd, besides, these trees will need all the moisture In the soil. Alfulfa would, no doubt be Injurious to the trees, because Its roots will work down deep Into the soil. During the first three years nfter an apple orchard has been set out the ground between the rows may be put In some cultivated or hoed crop.
