A BandKiM Yonnr Actor Who I* Bap
idly Making- His Mavk.
Porsons who oro good Judges of dram a t
lo ability declare that Id Aubrey Bouol
oault tho American stago has a worthy
successor to his father, the late Dion Bou?
oloault, who, as every old theater goer will
remember, was a few yean ago considered
Inimitable In the delineation of the rollick?
ing Irish hero. Anbrey has not the phy?
sique of his distinguished progenitor, but
be has a face that would easily serve, with
slight alterations, for the model of a Greek
god. He Is naturally, therefore, a very great
favorite with that portion of the public
whloh is supposed to be the mainstay of
matlnoo performances. The young star
has modo ossays In almost every depart?
ment of theatrical work, and in none of
them has he been less than tolerably good,
while in many if not most ho has really
boon excellent. It does not seem to bo pos?
sible for him to make a genalno failure of
anything that hb attempts, ?omo of his
well wishers are anxious that bo should
abandon bis present field of Irish comedy
and take up a line of high grado society
work, for whloh ho is exceptionally fitted
by reason of Ihr handsome and roll nod per?
sonality. Should be decide to follow this
advloo, which ho Is now said to bo consid?
ering seriously, ho ought to find himself
spoodlly In possession of a large and con?
stantly increasing olientole.
Aubroy Bouclcault's mother is Agnes
Robertson. Ho was born in England 86
yonrs ago. His drat appearance on the
stage as a professional was In St. Loui.;
with Kato Claxton nine years ago, when
ho played the part of tho cripple, Pierre, In
"The Two Orphans." Soon afterward
bo and his mother appeared in Hartley
Campbell's play, "My Goraldine," with
Duncan B. Harrison. Yoang Bouoicault
played the role originally played by V7. J.
After this engagement Mr. Bouoloault
wont to London, whero be appeerod with
tho comedian J. L. Took) In a play by
Herman Murlvale entitled "The Don,"
which was produced in this country by
Harry Leo. In this be scored his first groat
success, and though ho appoarod on tho
etago but 20 minutes it was said that he
shnrod the honors with Mr. Toolo. He
was then ongaged by Charles Wyndham
of tho Criterion thoater to play the loading
part In "Betsy," by P. C. Burnand, editor
of Punch, whloh was called "Baby" in this
country. With Wyndham Mr. Bouoicault
playod tho leading parts In Bronson How?
ard's "Truth," Allory's "Pink Domi?
nos," "Fourteen Days," whloh Not Good?
win recently produoed here as "A Gay
Decoiver," and the other plays of the Cri?
In April, 1801, Mr. Bouoloault came to I
this country to produce a now play written
by Robert Buohanan and himself, In
whloh be desired to bring his mothor be-1
foro tho Amorioan public again. But ow?
ing to lack of dates, a baaker and other
necessary preleminarios, tho play was nev?
er produced. Since then bo has been with
Roland Rood, Stuart Robson, Camilla
d'Arvlllo, Rose Coghlan and other stars.
Now he Is a star himself In a modest way.
Frlta Williams and Katbeiine Florenoa.
Charles Froh man could not have made
better selections than Frlta Williams and
Katherlne Floronoe to head tho comedy
company he Is organizing for next season.
Mr. Williams has made a remarkably fine
Impression in Dan Froh man's Lyceum
company as Juvenile comedian. Ho was
tho only actor in tbo produotlon of "The
Prisoner of Zenda" by the Lyceum stock
that regularly got a scono call?this, too,
in spite of tho foot that he played a small
part. The engagement, of course, is espe?
cially agreeable to Mr. Williams and Miss
Florence as they are engaged to bo mar?
ried. The first play in which tho company
is to appear is Clyde Fitch's adaptation of
Blsson's farcical comedy entltlod "Tho
Liar." Tho play has been gl von a special
performance, and those who saw It at that
time say It is ono of the cleverest plays of
its kind that havo bean seen In sevoral
The Joke Waa en Robson.
During Staart Robson's reoent tour
through Illinois bo was in tho box office
of a theater one evening getting his let?
ters whon tho telephone bell began to ring.
Tbo ticket man was busy selling seats,
and Mr. Robson undertook to receive the
message. "Hellol" cried a faint voloo over
tho wire. "Can I havo a box for this even?
ing?" "Not. a box left," replied the aotor.
"Then save me two seats In tho orchestra."
"Very sorry," replied Mr. Robson, after
consulting with the box offloo man, "but
there isn't a chair loft. Tho house is en?
tirely sold out."
There was a panse, and finally the voloo
said slowly, "Well, you will pleaso reserve

Which lurked behind the oomlo maekt
Did you. whoeo plaudits wild and loud ?
Mixed fate and laughter in a broath.
Behold tho actor oa ho bowed,

Across tho footlights of the years
1 That latest soeno shines f rosh and bright.
Only tho lamps aro blurred with tears.
Only the laughter falls tonight?
i And, lol boforo our startled eyes

Not for tho genius, but tbo man.
Actor, there gleams above thy tomb
No censor which tho church can swing;
No incense, with its dim pcrfumo,
Haunts thy dark rest with d roams of
But surely blessings more divine
Upon that lost appearance fell
And, with tho latest bravos thine,
Mingled tho angels' "It is well."
And, all unwitting, wo today
Tread in thy footsteps, Moliere.
Wo laugh and wonder at tho play
Or strut behind tho footlights' glaro.
Tho shouts of laughter grow inoro sparse,
Tho lamps burn dim, tho players lloo.
And Death takes up our potty faroo
And sobers it to tragedy.

Be Wae the Ablest and Mos? Conraeeooa
of tbe Emperor's Brother*.
The younger brother hod, after tho
first juvenile beats of radicalism, be
oomc a moderate republican, hol&ng
his convictions resolutely. Having op?
posed the hereditary consulate for Na?
poleon, ho withdrew, unmindful of any
reward he might how claimed for his
?ervIocs of Brnmaire, to lead a lifo of
study and cultivate his inborn literary
tastes. On the death erf his first wife,
by whom ho had two dnughters, ho mar?
ried, in direct opposition to Napoleon's
wishes, tho beautiful and accomplished
Mmc. do Janberthon. This was in 1803.
He had been importuned to put her
away and lend himself to the project of
buttressing the empire by himself ac?
cepting a crown and contracting a royal
marriage. He was by far the ablest and
most oouragoous of the Bonaparte broth?
ers, but Iiis heart was true, his princi?
ples were fixed, and he was utterly in?
different to the rise of Napoleonic em?
It was with reluctance that ho come
to Mantua. There are two accounts of
what happened there?that which has
long been accepted of Napoleon offering
and Lucien hotly refusing tho crown of
Portugal, with the hand of Prince Fer?
dinand for his daughter Charlotte, and
that which makes the first offer to have
been Erruria. Both accounts agree, how?
ever, that the bid was raised to the
promise of It aly?all an condition that
he should divorce his wife and rule in
tho interest of his brother's imperial
power. Lucien disdained oven this
bribe, declaring that ho would accept
the crown, but that he would rulo in
tho interests of his subjects, and that he
would in no case consider a divorce.
Angry words were spoken. Napoleon
crushed in his hand a watch with which
ho had been toying, hissing out that
thus ho would crush wills which opposed
his. "I defy you to commit a crime,"
Before parting there was? half recon?
ciliation, and Napoleon requested that
at least his brother's eldest daughter
might be sent to Paris for use in his
schema of royal alliances. Lucien as?
sented, and the child, a clever girl of
about 14, was sent to live with Mme.
Mere. She was thoroughly discontented
and wrote bright, sarcastic letters to
her stepmother, whom she loved, de?
picting the avarice of her grandmother
and the foibles of her other relatives.
These, like all other suspected letters of
tho time, were intercepted and read in
tho "cabinet noir." Their contents be?
ing mado known to Napoleon, he sent
tho petulant, witty writer back to her
father. Despairing of imy support from
Lucien or his family, Napoleon formal?
ly adopted his stepson Eugene, the vice?
roy, with a view to consolidating and
confirming the Italian feeling of depend?
ence on Prance,?Professor Sloane'fl
