Th 4a off fhe rrel awl Bee not 11 lotion Draanatiat and Aetroaa. Sneaking of Sardon and Bernhardt, t bo following story concerning the great French actress and the equally renowned playwright is Touched far by the corre spondent of ThcCourricr des Etats-Unis: The two who have achieved the great er triumph in "Gismonda," M. Yic- toricn Sardoa and Mme. Sarah Bern hardt, wero at swords' points in the be ginning. This dislike dated from "Dan iel Iicchet," which Sardou gave to the Corned ie Francaise after his nomination to the French academy. Sarah Bern hardt exported that Sardoa would select her to create the rolo of heroine in the play, but ho chose Mile. Bertet instead; hence the anger of lime. Bernhardt When the actress and the author met, tho former passed on the other side; the latter pulled bis bat down over bis eyes. t-acn murmured something not at all complimentary to the other. Then Sarah Bernhardt left the Come- dio Francaise, went to America, where sho mado her first triumphal tour, and returned to France. Upon her arrival in Paris she entered into negotiations with Raymond Deslande, manager of tho Vaudeville. She asked nothing bet ter than to play there. But what should sho play? Sho did not wish to return to classical roles. She wanted an entirely new play, which should bring out all her qualities. There is only ono man who can write tho play yon want," said Des lamia "That man is Sardon. " Sardou!" cried the actress. "Such a disposition, incapable of doing justice to an artist. Moreover, irritable, brutal, a man who runs np against everybody. wfco "Very well." replied Deslande, "let s.i say no more about it" He went to sco Sardon and told him that he must hare a play for Sarah Bernhardt "Sarah!" exclaimed the writer. Sarah! Such a disposition! Crabbed, disagreeable, quarreling with every body, who" "Very well, very well, it is quite un derstood. " And three months after Sardon read "Fedora" to Sarah, who, radiant, threw herself on tho author's neck in the pres ence of Deslande. "Ah! Deslande, "said Sardou, "what did I tell you? How gentle she is!' How sweet! How adorable! And be!" rejoined Bernhardt "How amiable ho isl How he appre ciates real talent, and bow obliging! Embrace ate, Raymond!" CAT ELECTRICITY. Thoaa Who Ecly on It For Ccrative Far- poee Can Cict It la Otber Wars. Tho London Lancet says: Tho electrical effect produced by rub bing a cat's back is of course well known. It is also well known that this is frictional electricity, or, perhaps more, correctly, the electricity of con tact; that it is a surface effect produced by the rubbing; that it does not point to pre-existing electricity stored in the body of the animal, and that the person who, having concluded a massage, sinks into a chair declaring that his exhaus tion is consequent on tho loss of "the living galvanism" which he has im parted to tho patient is a charlatan. It is to be remembered that friction between any dissimilar substances al ways produces electricity, and in illus tration of this the electrical effect some times produced in a dry atmosphere when the hair is combed on the body quickly divested of a flannel jersey may be instanced, or the classic experiment of rubbing a stick of sealirjg wax on a rabbit s fnr may be called to mind. Those who are accustomed to rely on the curative effect of stroking a cat s back may find consolation in the last named experiment, inasmuch as it teaches them that when their "feline favorite" is no more health and strength may still be secured by gentle friction on its skin. Apart, however, from questions of electro-physiology, it is instructive to learn that the presence of white in the color of a cat, unless the animal be whole colored, is a sign of weakness. Promotion. "How's that boy o yourn gettin along in the city, Josiab?" asked one farmer of another. "He's workin his way np right along." "What's be doin?" "He's workin fer the city. "Yon don't tell me! What's be doin fer it?" "He's drivin one o' them things they call a street sweeper kind o wipes np the road nights, yon know. But, my. he's bein promoted! Fust off howns workin in the Twenty-fcst ward. By an by he writ me that be wus workin in the Eighteenth ward. Last week be writ that he was in the Twelfth ward now, an, I swan, yon see if that feller don't fetch np in the Fust ward with his sweep cart yit!" Youth s Compan ion. Tandjrke'a Place la Art. So far as portraiture goes. Vandyke occupies, with Titian and Velasquez, the first place. His works have an air of elegance and distinction and a mun dane grace and courtliness naturally be fitting his title of "painter to the king.' The Italians called him ll pittore cav alieresco. " Without the stamina and natural robustness of bis great master. Rubens, bis portraits are better in point of refinement and grace. But one must know bis master to form a just appre ciation of bis position. T. Cele in Cen tury.
