Notable among the dramatic events of the
past week was the production at the Baldwin of
Kicbaidsou's version of Mark Twain's "The
I'rince and the I'uuper." So tar It bas been only
a succes a'esilme. but belter things are expect

Scanlan's Irish limine*,

due laigely to Scanlan's personality, remains not

While fully piep.cied to admit tbe young Irish
comedian's popularity, and noting the large at
tendance this theater bas enjoyed during his

The drama by A. C. Gunter, with which the

their engagement at tneßush-street.smells like an
other floweret from the prolific stem of Mci lvale's
"Fuigel-Me-N'ot." The story reads that Gerald

is an artist, in love wllh Evelyn Aubrey. Having
bad a misunderstanding with hei, be goes to
Home to continue bis studies, and while there Is
stricken wllh fever. During bis illness be Is

Willi a good deal of courage, considering the
fruitless attempts recently to put the Grand
Opera House in proper shape before ihe public,
Messrs. Andrews and Mcßurule bave made
another effort In that direct and last night
reopened Its doors to the public with the popular
Miss Nellie McUenry in her favorite role of
Lady Peggy. Theie was a fair attendance on the
occasion, and the lady, well supported by ber
company, played with all her accustomed vi
vacity. Much new sceneiy bad been ptepaied for
the event, aud showed lo advantage ou the spa

Grand, and we look, therefore, for me ciealtou
of a fresh Interest iv the piece on accouut ot the
additional advantages wliii which It is now in
vested. Even tbe dugs Zip and Nero made a
sp- cial circus for themselves in the greater ex
panse aftoiued for their gambols. "Chain Light

istic, blood-curdling sensations, will succeed
"Lady l'egey." Mr. Mcßurule will, we under
stand, be associated null Air. Audiews only dur
ing the McUenry engagement. At Hie end of
that, bis place will be taken in the management
by Mr. Selick.

The announcement that Miss Clara' Morris Is

cident in her eaily theatrical career In Kew

almost impossible lor an American actor to ob
tain a position at Wallack's Theater, the mana
ger claiming that there were no native actors
good enough for hts clientele. There came oue
day, entirely unknown, from the country to the
metropolis, a slip of a girl with big gray eyes,
slight physique aud beautiful voice, and sought
an engagement at Wallack's at $10 per week.
Not succeeding, she became a member ol
another stock company. sir- still lunged to be

telling bent she bad genius arid would soon make
a lepul tlon. He urged Wallack to see ber at
least once, and judge for himself of her power
aud magnetism. All In vain, however. - Wallack
declared he would not waste bis lime iv that
way, as be did not want lo be bored by seeing
the awkwardness and listening to the ranting of
a provincial actress.

A. C. heeler makes an excel point In the

able hint: "What I object to Is that the New
England school of drama doesn't toucb the hero
ism of 'The Old Homestead.' lt shows the pic
nic side of rural lite, but not the conquering side*
It deals with the deep, serene life of the country
very much as the snap photographer deals with
it, catching a flannel shirt on a clothes line here
and a jo.. on his belly, lishlug with a pin, over
there. But where aie tho liv id-listed fathers,
the close-grained, penurious, Cod-learlng stal
warts, who raised iarge Lunches and sent lhem
Into the world to lound coinmuutvealths and
govern them.' Where are the mothers ot the old
homesteads, who gave their sons to their country
and hid their tears from the world, and wore
their rusty old alpaca gowns down lo the giave
lhal then daughters might be educated and go
out and make the wiluerness of the Ohio Val
ley and the prairies ol the sun -down West
' echo with ihe old sougs of Zlou? 1 dare say
theie was a gieat deal of the sail of lhe eattb lv
those old rural homes, a gieai deal of the liber
that went into the making of heroes, and 1 am
sure II you louk iuto the prospeiliy of the North
west deep enough you will see under it all the
old homestead integrity and the old homestead
love ol countiy aud fear of God that were very
auslete and bard and indomitable and splendid
wilhai. II we are to have a New England school
of drama 1 cannot see why we should not have a
lillle of ibe New England sand in It. 1 think we
could dispense with the oxen if somebody would
only furnish us Willi the men and women.''

*in San Francisco Society. '
Hr«. Wilfrid B. Chapman, Mrs. Hall McAllister
Jr., Mrs. '. Dr. Herzstein, Mrs. J. H.
Hammond, Mrs. J. Beis.
YtkS this issue of The Call is presented
IK the portraits of The Call well-known
i tbo portraits of five of the well-known
1$ ladies of San Francisco, together with
a brief sketch of each, showing the position
they occupy in society.
MRS. WILFRID B. CHAPMAN,
The wife of tho Belgian Consul in this city,
is a San Franciscan whose social life here
has been alternated with several trips
abroad. She is the daughter of our well
known and respected merchant and capital
ist, Robert Sherwood, whose artistic resi
dence on California street, near Taylor,
overlooks the entire southern portion of the
city. Mrs. Chapman was educated in our
public schools, finishing off with a course
at one of the fashionable institutes. Soon
niter leaving school she went abroad. A
young Englishman fell violently in love
with her and they were married in the
Church of the Advent, Dora Sherwood be
coming Mrs. Gray Grayrigge, the wife of an
English country gentleman with large land
ed estates. Several years ago, while Mr. and
Mrs. Gray Grayrigge were on a visit to her
old home, the gentleman dropped dead at
Monterey, leaving a young widow with one
son, who is now being educated, in accord
ance with his father's will, in England.
During her residence in England, the lady
became a Cue horsewoman. flow she is as
expert an equestrienne as ever mounted a
spirited animal. She will not soon forget
some of her first experiences. One of these,
while she was riding in Loudon, came near
having a fatal termination. Sho was thrown
from her horse and stunned. While un
conscious she was carried into a hospital
and cared for until she had returned to con
sciousness and was able to be carried home.
A San Franciscan who witnessed the acci
dent declared it a miracle that she escaped
with only a few bruises, for seeing her
strike the pavement, lie thought that she
must surely be killed.
After Mrs. Grayrigge had been in San
Francisco some time, it was currently re
ported that the gentleman who accompanied
her on horseback along the bridle-paths of
the Golden Gate Park was soon to lead her in
another bridal path. This rumor proved true,
and in the latter part of 1888 the wedding
of W. B. Chapman and Mrs. Grayrigge was
celebrated with all due ceremony at Trinity
Church, the Rev. R. C. Foute officiating.
The ushers on this occasion were Arthur
Page, Harry Babcock, the bride's brother
Robert L. Sherwood, and A. A. Wheeler.
The bride was attended by two little chil
dren—ber own son, Master Grayrigge, and
her little niece, the daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. 11. il. Sherwood. The wedding tour
was passed in Southern California. .
Mr. and Mrs. Chapman are often to be
seen on horseback at the park, frequently
accompanied by one of tin- Sherwood young
men. Mrs. Chapman is able to do what
low American ladies ever care to attempt,
and that is to ride a trotting horse.
MBS. DR. HERZSTEIN
Was one of our most popular society belles
when, as Miss Cora Wallace, the only
daughter of the late senior member of the
firm of Wallace & Sisson of this city, she
numbered her admirers by the score. Sev
eral years ago she was married by the late
Rev.. Dr. William A. Scott of St John's
Presbyterian Church to Dr. Herzstein. Be
fore her marriage she was one of the most
graceful and petite horsewomen in the city.
Her habit was generally a close fitting one
of dark blue, very becoming to her pink
aud white style ol beauty.
Jilts, IJAI.I, m'ALLISTEH JR.
Was Miss Lucy Otis before her marriage to
the nephew of the great lawyer. Her
father was the late James Otis, one of the
Mayors that presided over the munici
pality of San Francisco, and her mother
was Miss Lucy Macondray, the daughter of
Captain Macondray, for years in the China
trade nnd founder of the house of Mucon
dray & Co. The family is an old Boston
one, highly esteemed both here and in the
East. The elder sister of Mrs. Otis— Miss
Lavinia Macondray— was the first wife of
the Hon. Horace Davis. Miss Martha
Macondray, another sister, yet remains
single. Mrs. Otis' two brothers, Frederick
and William, are both dead, and the widow
of Frederick, formerly a Miss Atherton, is

now Mrs. Prentiss Selby. For a number of
years the Otis family have lived in their
elegant home on Washington and Franklin
streets, and from this residence the bridal
party set forth on the evening of April 18,
1888, repairing to the First Congregational
Church on Post and Mason streets. The
Otises and the llacondrays are stanch
Unitarians, bnt at this date tho new Uni
tarian Church was being erected, the old one
had been demolished, the congregation
was worshiping in the Temple Emanu-EI,
and therefore tho wedding of Miss Macon
dray and young McAllister could not be
solemnized within the walls of the family
church. Under these circumstances the
Congregational Church was used for the
occasion. It was beautifully decorated.
The Key. Dr. Stebbins performed the
ceremony. The bride was accompanied by
her brother Frederick Otis, the nest man
was Jerome B. Lincoln. The ushers were
Messrs. Harry Babcock, Charles Baldwin,
George Davidson and Robert Hooker. The
bride's sister, Miss Helen Otis, was the
maid of honor, the bridesmaids were Miss
Alice Decker, Miss Susie Thomkins, Miss
Faith Forbes. Miss Dora Boardman. Mrs.
McAllister also belongs to the list of ladies
who ride; she is a graceful equestrienne,
and before her marriage was frequently to
be seen at the park in company with her
fiance. Her habit was a dark, invisible

MRS. J. H. HAMMOND
Is the wife of one of General Hammond's
sons. She is a slender little woman with
expressive eyes and much dignity of man
ner. Her hair is light brown, and she
wears it waved from her forehead in a most
becoming style. She presides with rare
grace over a lovely home in the Western
Addition, and is the mother of several
children, the eldest of whom Is Harris, a
bright little boy with a fondness for ani
mals and for drawing.
MRS. J. KEIS
Belonged to the well-known Thornton
family. The relationship is an extensive
one, and among its members are many re
nowned for their eminence at the bar. Be
fore her marriage Mrs. Reis was Miss Belle
Brookes, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Sam Brookes, granddaughter of Mrs. J.
C. Fells, and great-granddaughter of the
lata Mrs. Harry I. Thornton, who was a
Miss Crittenden, sister of the famous John
J. Crittenden of Kentucky. Colonel Harry
I. Thornton is her uncle. Mrs. James D.
Thornton is her mother's sister, who mar
ried a gentleman of the same name but of
most remote connection with the family.
She is a cousin of Maggie Thornton, now
Mrs. Abbott Kinney of Southern California,
niece of Mrs. Bessie Thornton, and also of
Mrs. Stuart M. Taylor. She is a tall and
dashing blonde, with fine black eyes. After
the wedding ceremony the bridal couple de
parted for Europe. The wedding took
place in the early part of the year; they
have recently returned to San Francisco.

Terrible Death of a Frenchmin In Mon
treal — Imbedded in the Earth.
Notre Dame Cathedral, Montreal, was the
scene of a shocking accident yesterday
when Joseph Legace fell straight down to
his death a distance of 110 feet from one of
the main towers. Legace, who leaves a
wife and three children, has been employed
keeping the walls of the church repaired
for ten years.
The unfortunate man landed in the semi
ntirylgardcn, striking straight on his head.
So terrible was the velocity of his fall that
his head and body were driven three feet
into the earth, and so firmly imbedded that
other workmen had to extricate him with
pickax and shovel. The skull was crushed
in and the neck broken. — Philadelphia

A Crooked Salvationist.
A rather amusing caso came up yesterday
in that of Chris Moe, a member of the Sal
vation Army, who was arrested for obtain
ing money under false pretenses. He
worked a very slick game by borrowing
money for some time past from his friend,
E. Bennett, it real estate dealer un Kearny
Street, to whom be stated that he was about
to obtain work, that bis wife was sick and
he needed money for medicine. Bennett
kindly loaned him money several times un
til the amount reached $20, when he made
the discovery that be had been imposed up
on and had him arrested, and be is now
languishing in the City Prison.

The case of Captain Silas W. Oliver,
master of the ship Louisiana, charged by a
sailor named W. Anderson with cruel and
inhuman treatment on the high seas, came
tip before United States Commissioner
Sawyer for hearing yesterday, and resulted
in his discharge, the testimony showing
that Anderson was insubordinate, and bad
drawn a knife on the captain when ordered
to attend to certain duties which fell to his
lot. The evidenco went to shew that
Anderson was a man of bad character, and
the Commissioner refused to sustain the
charge. ' .' ' '
I:, -fees., to Commute.
The Southern Pacific Railroad has so far
refused to commute the fares of those wish
ing to attend the World's Fair Convention
to be held in this city September 11th. As
there are between 1500 and 2000 delegates to
come, some of whom live from 200 to 300
miles distant, the rate of fare is a matter of
serious consideration. The Executive Com
mittee of the fair intend, however, to press
negotiations, with a hope of persuading the
company to rescind its resolution. A re
fusal to do so will, it is claimed, materially
lessen the attendance.

•'By a thorough knowledge of the natural laws
which govern the operations of digestion and nutri-
tion, and by a careful application of the Hue proper-
ties of well-selected Cocoa, Mr. Epps has provided
onr break'ast tables with a delicately flavored bev-
erage which may save us many heavy doctors' bills.
It Is by the Judicious use of such articles of diet that
a constitution may be gradually built up u.-tll strong
enough to resist every tendency to disease. Hun-
dreds of subtle maladies are floating around us ready
to attack wherever there Is a weak point. We may
escape many a fatal shaft by keeping ourselves well
fi.rtlliccl with pure bio. and a properly nourished
frame."— Civil Berrtoa Gazette.
