I: WATERBURY EVENING DEMOCRAT. FRIDAY, MARCH 1 1901 f 1 r-. i i i ft. V- Theatrical 1 Fraternal LCI . " ADA REHAN". An event of rare interest occurs this evening when Miss Alia Rohan makes her first appearance in- V aterbury in a. character that is somewhat new to lier. The shrewish Katheriue, the winsome Rosalind, the vivacious Viola, the loving Helena, the tantaliz ing Lady Teazle, the gentle Miranda, all these have been laid aside for a time and in place of them Hiss Ttehan, for so long the leading lady of Angus tin Daly's leading stock company in New York, but now a star under the management of Klaw and Erlanger, has taken up a new character which is fully worthy of her talents. It is a historical personage, Nell Gwyu, and the play is the one which has started all the craze for the charmer of the days of Charles II., '.".Sweet Nell of Old Drnry." In obtaining the rights to this piet? for iheir star, Klaw and Erlanger displayed great enterprise, and their wisdom has been fully dem onstrated by the success which Miss Kehan has won wherever she has ap peared. She comes to Poli's this even ing with the entire company which supported ' her during her recent tri umphant engagement at the Knicker bocker theater in New York, and nil the scenery. -il costumes of the met ropolitan production will be shown oil our local stage. Prices are 25. 75 cents. SI and .S1.5n, and the free list is suspended. : MAY F1SK17. - Interest continues at top notch in the performances that Miss May l-'iske and the Frantic Carpenter company are giving at the .laeqnes. and if the attendance continue as good during the remainder of the engagement as it has been so far lop figures for a repertoire company will have been reached at its close. The star and company certainly deserve the partial ity shown them, for it may be said, without any disparagement 1o other repertoire organizations, that no better selection of plays and no better pre sentations of them have been shown by any company that has played this house "since it passed tinder the regime of popular prices. The specialties that are introduced, too. are of a su perior class, interesting and atitactive. and presented by well known vaude ville stars. An incentive for attend ance this evening is offered by the an nouncement that each lady who at; tends will receive as a souvenir a handsome photograph of Miss I'iske. The play for this evening will be "An American Princess"' and for to-morrow's matinee '"Sunshine of Dover Locks." Prices are popular. THE KILTIES. Considerable enthusiasm has been aroused over the return engagement of the Forty-eighth Highlanders' band on Sunday evening at Poll's, and there Is hardly" a doubt but the house will be filled' to overflowing. Apart from the fact that a Sunday evening enter tainment appeals to a large elerSent of the community, the great populari ty the band won by its splendid con certs given three weeks ago will insure the attendance of many people. On all sides, after those concerts, were heard 'enthusiastic exclamations that they surpassed anything in the way of band concerts ever given in Water bury. And wherever the band has played the same enthusiasm has been aroused. In Paterson. X. .T.. where the band played a return engagement last week, the receipts, according to the sworn statement of the local man ager, John J. Thomson, were $2,429, which means 4.101 paid admissions. Something phenomenal that, but it is expected that when the band returns there for still another concert in about two weeks even this extraordinary record will be broken. The sale of seats for Sunday evening's concert will open to-morrow, and the sale will be open Sunday after C p. m. Prices are 25, 50 and 75 cents. "BAKBAEA FRIETCHIE." An attraction of unusual excellence Is offered on Monday evening at Poli's when Charles Frohman. sends his big spectacular production of "Barbara Frietc-hie," with Miss Effie Ellsler in the title role here. The production will be brought here direct from its run at the Academy of Music, New York, which closes to-morrow evening, and will be exactly the same in all re spects. Miss Ellsler. it will be remem bered, was the first star chosen to fol low Viola Allen . as Glory Quayle in "The Christian." and her selection as the first one to follow Julia Marlowe ' In the title role of "Barbara Frietchie" is another splendid tribute to her dra matic powers. That the performance of "Barbara Frietehie"' will be one of rare Interest is assured, and it ought 4o draw out sk very large audience. Seats go on sale to-morrow at "25, 35, BO. 75 cents and ?1. i'if ;: "CHATTAXOOGA." :. - Lincoln J. Carter's big production of "Chattanooga" will bethe attraction at Jacques' on Monday, Tuesday and v Wednesday; opening with a special vuiatinco on Monday. The play is a romance of the late civil war located in the Tennessee mountains, and. like all of Mr Carter's plays, abounds in stirring situations and striking scenes. It 4s. in fact, a melodrama with a won ; lerfully interesting story, and the pro duction is made with all the extraor . dinary perfection of scenic detail of .' which Mr Carter is a master. It - should draw . large audiences during the. engagement- particularly as the reduced scale of prices goes into effect for the engagement. " - "A POOR RELATION.

A M-, Some Men Who Are Helping to Make the . History of the World Army officials generally approve the selection of Col. Cornelius Gardener to be the governor of Tabayas province, Luzon island, as a wise choice. It is not an easy task 1ha.t con fronts Col. Gard ener, but armj- offi cers say that he is as well or better fitted to solve the difficult problems Cot. Cornelius Gardner that will arise than any other man that might have been selected, and, as a rule, army officers are not given to un due praise. It is his ability as an organizer, his tact in handling men and his personal magnetism that fit him so adm.ira.blj' for the difficult position which he has been called upon to fill. He has had a. long training in the army, having graduated from West Point in 1S73, and served with distinction through the Indian campaign of the seventies and eighties in the west. He has solved the difficult problems to be en countered in the recruiting, training and disciplining of a regiment of men, having been placed in command of the Thirty-first regiment of Michigan vol unteers at the outbreak: of the war with Spain, which, though a national guard regiment of considerable sol dierly qualities and training, yet which, when recruited to its full war strength, iv.is composed of at least 50 per cent, of undisciplined and untrained men. A second, and even more' trying, experi ence came when he was placed in com mand of the Thirteenth United States volunteer infantry, recruited in 1S99 nt Fort Sheridan. Here he had to take oflieers and men that were to a great extent new and untrained, and lie made of them one of the best of our volunteerregiment sthat have seenserv ice in. the Philippines., and it was with considerable regret that the men of the regirtent departed from Manila on Iheir way back to ihis country without their colonel. Col. Gardener is a native of Michigan, and in the regular service is a major in the Thirteenth infantry. Twice Declined the Proffered Honor. It is not often that a seat in the French Academy is declined, and es. peeially by a Frenchman, yet .lules Verne has twice refused to accept such an honor. The first time 28 years ago, and the second time but some few weeks ago. In expressing a reason for thus declmingthe prof fered honor the Oules Verne, great writer of physical science stories said that be tween the time of his declination and the second offer 59 members of the academy had died, and if academi cians be immortal it was not the academy that had made them so. He was probably right, and of the long list of those who have died in that time tnere are but few whose fame as writers will live with that of Verne. He has endeared himself to the people of every reading nation by his tales of wonder, and to none more than to Americans. This is ac counted for by the number of Amer ican characters that he has put in his books, and by the number of dis tinctly American stories which, he has given us. Of these latter his "Californian Mystery," "The Blockade Runners," and "An American Uncle" attracted probably the greatest at tention as distinctly American, though some of his other works had a larger sale both in this and other countries. In all of his writings in which he has introduced American characters he has shown that he be lieved in America and its institutions, and appreciated its power nnd its people. The great story writer is now 73 years old, having been born in Nan tes, France, February S, 1828. By his writings he has accumulated a great fortune, and is now living on the in come from it at a beautiful home at Amiens, France. He has not yet out grown his usefulness as an entertain ing story writer, and new books from his pen may be looked for before he is called to join the "great majority." 1 The Queen's Biographer. The phenomenal sales of the great books of the past century, both bio graphies and au tobiographies, will undoubtedly be far surpassed bys the forthcom ing biography of Queen Victoria now nearing com pletion by the masterful writer, the duke of Ar gyll, son-in-law of the late queen, fourth daughter, Duke of Argyll. husband of her Princess Louise. Such a work will have a remark able sale, throughout the entire civ ilized world, and coming from the pen of one so closely associated with the queen as the duke of Argyll it will have an exceptional value. -. The duke, who succeeded to his title last year, being formerly known as the marquis of Lome, is not a novice ia the literary field. In his - Aula Dependent on Sl-rea. The curious fact has been demon strated by Sir John Lubbock that cer tain kinds of ants are unable to ex ist without keeping other ants as slaves, though why -this is ao he has not found out. On removing' ; .the slaves from a neat of aO slave-holding ants he found that the latter imme diately i commenced' to' die oft and were -specdUjr reduced In number to ais When tit Uvai were rtrnd time he has produced many valuable books, and is looked upon as a lead er in the English world of letters. One of his works which had a number of years ago a large sale in this coun try, was entitled "The United States After the War." It was among bis earliest literary works, being pub lished in 1865, but it displa3'ed a mas ter hand, and while written by an Englishman, and so not wholly in keeping with American views in all things, was generally accepted as a valuable review of the situation. Of his work along more familiar lines may be mentioned his volume on "Imperial Federation," "Memories of Canada and Scotland," "Canadian Pictures," and the less notable "Tr(les and Poems," "Windsor Castle," "Psalms in English Verse," etc. But the greatest of all his works was un doubtedly his "Life of Palmerston," and this gives us an idea of his power as a' biographer. By the death of his father he suc ceeded to many high titles, to an es tate of 3 70,000 acres, to a magnificent home and to a treasure house o rare books and- paintings and valuable trophies. Among these may be men tioned paintings by Gainsborough, relics of Mary Queen of Scots, sole com plete copy of the first book printed in Gaelic and Bishop Carsewell's transla tion of John Knox's liturgy printed in 1 5G7. A Itoyal Engageaiellt. Grand Duke Michael, heir presump tive to the throne of Russia, is going to marry the r.ng lish Princess Vic toria., daughter of King- Edward VII. At least this is the burden of the pres ent gossip of Eu ropean courts. This marriage, if it takes place, will be one of polit ical convenience,, for it is common- Grand Duke Michael, ly known that . Michael , is deeply in love with Grand Duchess Heiene, daughter of the late czar's brother, Vladimir. Being first cousins, the reigning sovereig'n would jiot give his consent to this match, on the ground that, it would be within the prohibited degrees of propinquity defined by the Russian church. Why this same ob jection will not hold good in the pre: ent case it is hard to see, for Michael and Victoria are also first cousins. Princess Victoria is one of the pret tiest young women of the blood royal in Europe, and one of the best loved. She has had numerous suitors, but no pressure has been brought, upon her to marry. Her spinsterhood (for she will be years old next July) has been explained by a story to the effect that there existed at one time .an attachment- between the princess and a crfain young lord, who left England in his youth. It. is. also reported that, she was very much pleased with Prince George of Greece, but the affair never came to anything of a serious import. Michael is ten years younger than his alleged fiancee, having been born No vember 22, 1S7S. He was the third son of the la.te Alexander -III., whom he ver3" much resembles in face, figure and character. It is said he would make a most popular ruler should he ever come to the throne. He became heir pre sumptive by appointment of the czar on the death of 'Grand Duke George, an older brother. Liked Canada, llesf. It was quite fitting that the an cestors of Robert Laird. Borden should have re moved from this country to Can ada. They re sided in Connecti cut during the revolutionary war and were pro nounced tories. So strong was their liking for the government o f King George that when the patriot Robert Laird Borden. army had won the independence of the struggling colonies, and Lord Gornwallis had surrendered at York town, the whole Borden family shook the dust of the country from their feet and migrated to Canada. Their going created no commotion at the time, nor were they received with any undue manifestations of joy by the Canadians with whom they chose to cast their lot, but to-day descendants of the house of, Borden of Connecticut origin have risen to proud positions in the Canadian gov ernment, and" Robert " Laird Borden has been chosen leader of the oppo sition forces in the Canadian parlia ment at Ottawa. Like his ancestors, the new Cana dian leader came near being an American. Before he had attained his majority tie had accepted a pro fessorship in the Glenwood institute in New 'Jersey, and for a time expect ed to make America, his permanent home.' But his family ties were all in Canada, and after a. short time he returned there to take a place in Canadian politics with other members of the family. He is now 46 years old, represents Halifax in the. Car.a .dian parliament, and is a cousin of F. W. Borden, minister of militia in the present Canadian cabinet. . WEIGHT A. PATTERSON.

One hundred thousand dollars is estimated as the value of the fortune left by the late Steve Erodie. Most of this is left to his daug-hter Irene, a girl of 20. Willie Keeler, who has been engaged to coach the Columbia Colleg-e base ball team,- Hays, that the chief weak ness with colleg-e nines is their ina bility to bat. Football, according- to Prof. A. A. Stag-g1, leads to purity of life. Prof. Westcott says the game is brutal. This happened in a debate and the judges g-ave the verdict to Slagg-. A glass of milk and three slices of toast per meal formed the principal diet on which Walter Tj. Stannard, of Springfield, ilass., rode 38,SS7 miles last year on a bicycle and won the Century Eoad club championship. James Foulis, the professional of the Chicago Golf club and open cham pion of the United States in 1S9G, has established a professional record for the links at Tampa Bay, Of which he has charge this winter, making the 18 holes in 74. In Michigan last season 15,000 deer were slain by hunters. ' Steps are be ing taken to prevent another slaugh ter. It is proposed to limit each hunter to two deer. This move has the backing of the American Sports men's association. W. T. Hobart, one of the promoters of the Jeffries-Ttuhlin fight, admitted on the witness stand that he is a church member and a superintendent of a Sunday school. Gus Wald, who opposed the fight, said he did not be long to the church and that none of his family for three generations back had professed religion. CONGRESSIONAL GOSSIP. Moses Clapp, the new senator from Minnesota, does not approve of whisky and quinine as a remedy for grippe. He says it spoils the whisky and does not help the quinine. The nickname given the other day by Senator Tillman, of South Caro lina, to Senator Beeridge, of Indi ana, "the wasp of the Wabash," seems likely to stick to the Hoosier states man. Senator Teller always pronounces "Cuba" as if written "Cuby." This, he explains, is due to the fact that the chief town of Allegheny county, N. Y., where be was born, is named Cuba, but has " always been pro nounced "Cuby" by the natives. Senator Vest and Justice Harlan have been friends for 40 years. They are like two boys when they get to gether. "I don't know about George Vest," said Justice Harlan the other day. "He plays jokes on me and I take it in good part, but if t play a joke on him he won't speak to me for a month." AMONG THE SWISS. Switzerland has over 1,700 hotels. During the last ten years there were 10,924 requests for citizenship in Switzerland, of which 7,833 were granted. A landslide occurred recently in Switzerland. An inn and its garden and outbuildings slid down a hillside a distance of 35 feet without being in the least injured. Two stately -elm trees in the garden were also moved without injury. ' Switzerland is the oldest republic on record, and has existed as such surrounded by forms of government entirely different. It has maintained its position not by extent of terri tory, population or military power, but by the. jealousy of the nations surrounding it. SOME KEROSENE POINTERS.

In the Spanish city of Seville there are no kindergartens or ether places where the busy mother can, leave her little children to be cared for while she does the housework or helps her hus band in his little shop. The baby is left to care for itself and does so very well that, is, the baby who has not learned, to walk yet. It is placed in a wicker-woven ar rangement which looks like a basket turned upside down, and is just high MAKING CARP OF HIMSELF. snough so the baby's feet will touch the ground. He- is then set out in the street to take care of himself. He cannot turn over, so he at least remains in an upright position. The basket is very light, so he often works his way up the street and far away from home. He will get into the middle of the street, so that the donkeys who take the places of horses and wagons there must go around him. This they always do, and it looks queer to see a long line of donkeys going out of their way to go around a baby in the narrow streets of the old Span.ish. town. Hogs Taii-d liy We'58.Bt.
