The nice- lion and gradations of feeling until lately have not been considered within the province of pantomlmlsts. Panto mimic acting has been "broad" to the point of bad art The art, It Is said, never pained permanent favor be cause of the very fact that It lacked the resources of suggestion. New York, Gesture the refine ment of action la perhaps the oldest form of expressing emotion, and Just now there seems to be a tendency to revive the old art of pantomime. With the English the pantomime play la an Institution, with Americans It Is al most a novelty. Our older generation of (heater-goers, however, can recall "Humpty Dumpty," to which Goody TwoShoes, Old One-Two. Tommy Tucker und Humpty Dumpty became famous. "For tho' true love ne'er did smooth, I'm told, All will end well where true hearts like yours, are gold." What a satisfying couplet to come from a fairy queen after the opening vicissitudes of the wordless play. Perrot, Arlecchlno, Paotalene and Columbine were characters In Italian masque plays of the middle ages. An Incoherent plot was strung together to embrace acrobatics and ballet dan cing. It was 400 years later that the descendants of the Italian quartet ap peared before an American audience. Plots of the older pantomime plays were simple and fantastic. Without Nspeech there must bo swiftness of ac tion to sustain Interest The story of "Humpty Dumpty," whose popntarlty began In the spring of 1868, when George L, Fox played the great clown at the Olympic theater In this city, is a good example of pantomimic plot. Goody od Tommy were- rustic lovers and were forced to make love In se cret. Old One-Two was the guardian of Goody, and at the beginning of the play comes upon the pair and threat ens punishment. Humpty appears to take away the ugly guardian In his wheelbarrow. Then the good fairy appears to de liver her hopeful couplet about true love and changes the characters Into Columbine, Pantaloon. Harlequin and Clown. Tommy Tucker becomes the Harlequin, garbed in scales ot yellow, symbolizing Jealousy, blue for love, red for passion, black for death.

Humpty becoming the clown of the harlequinade. Such was Humpty, who has gone where. "All the king's horses and all the king's men Can never put Humpty , together again." .Pantomime Is a distinctly different art from that of acting. Some of the clowns ot the day who are pantomim iste are Adams, Ravel, Melville, Mar cellne, Miaco. A pointed finger roust often tell the whole story.

Four generations of one of New York's oldest families and an estate variously estimated at from $1,250,000 to $10,000,000, are involved In a lawsuit, the facts in which have come to light through a decision handed down by the state supreme court here. The defendants in the action are the Misses Furniss, three very old and wealthy women, who are holding in trust the estate or their father, Wil llam mrniBs, a wesi inuian mer chant. They have multiplied Its value many times over by shrewd in vestment In New York real estate. The present action is brought by the ultimate heirs of the trust fund, all distant relatives, who demand a defl nite accounting from the three aged trustees. BOY HOLDUPS ARE CAUGHT They Pinioned a Victim's Arms Wltr a Lariat and Then Rifled Pockets. New York. Using a lariat with which, in true western style, they lassoed a victim so that he was pow erless to resist, three highwaymen the oldest of whom was but eleven years, robbed Lester Feist, eighteen years old, 69 Cedar street, Williams burg, of a valuable stickpin while be was on his way home from making a call. Feist struggled to free hlmBelf, but the boys pulled the lariat tighter. The more he struggled the tighter they drew the rope. Feist was turning Into Hamburg avenue from Hart street, when three boys stepped from a doorway. One. ot them began whirling a lariat, and sud denly the rope shot toward him. It circled his head and dropped down over his arms. As it did the three boys pulled on tho rope and pinioned his arms. He ran toward the three. but they wound the lariat around his legs and threw hlra to the gutter. Feist cried for help as one of the trio took a stickpin from the victim's tie. They were going through his pockets when Policeman Nicholas Benson, responding to Feist's cry, ap peared. After a long chase Benson ar rested the three boys. MISS GOULD'S HENS Fine Flocks of Chickens Bid De fiance to Egg Trust. Product of Two Thousand Prize Birds at Tarrytown Farm More Than Owner Can Use Many Are Sold to ths Trade. New York. There may be '30,000, 000 eggs in cold storage in New Jer sey or anywhere else, but Miss Helen Miller Gould can snap her lingers and forget about it, for she owns one of the finest poultry farms in New York state, writes a Tarrytown correspond ent The establishment ot this (arm has proved Miss Gould to be a good business woman, for It Is practically self-sustaining. This Is an added com fort to the convenience ot having fresh eggs when you want them and as many as you want. Miss Gould decided about a year ago that she wanted a poultry farm to free herself from any egg trust. She has a most capable superintend ent In Archibald Robbie, and upon him devolved the work ot carrying out the plans. Miss Gould has plenty of land, and the site selected for the chicken farm was on the property on the White Plains road, east ot Mead ow street. Only two breeds are boused on the farm white Leghorns and Wyan dottea. Miss Gould tries to keep the number up to 2,000. Just now It Is below that figure, but the Incubators will be started soon and a large num ber of broilers are planned tor the spring. The farm provides Miss Gould with all the eggs she wants a( all times. It also provides broilers, chickens for roasting, squabs, capons and ducks. In the spring, when the egg harvest Is greatest.

Washington, Feb. 2 A special mes sage on the work of the Intel lor de partment and other natters was read to Congress today.

The rules governing the acquisition of homesteads, of land that Is not arid or semi-arid, aro not well adapted to tho perfecting of title to land made arable by government reclamation work.

This leniency to the reclamation home steader will relieve blm from occupa tion at a time when the condition of tho land makes It most burdensome and difficult, and at the end of five years will furnish him with a title upon which he can borrow money and continue the Improvement of his hold- Ins. I also concur In the recommends- Ing together of the power derived from water within a radius of 300 or 400 miles, I think It better that the power of control should remain in the national government than that it should be turned .pver to tho states. Under such a system the Federal gov ernment would have such direct su pervision of the whole matter that any honest administration could eas ily prevent the abuses which a monop oly of absolute ownership in private persons or companies would make possible.

SKIIS SAVE MAN FROM BEAR 'The Case Is Altered" Is a Relic of Oliver Cromwell's Time In England. London. I have Just discovered what must be the most queerly named saloon In all England. You do not need to be told, ot course, that a sa loon over here is not a "saloon," but a "iwbHc house or "pub." to use the popular expression. Moreover, although the proprietor's name may be. and generally is. above tho door, the place never Is. as at home, known thereby, but invariably by Borne odd name, which may be any thing from the "Spotted Dog" or "Dun Cow" to the "Prince of Wales," the "Crown" or the "Angel."

I have found out, however, and the story Is quaint and recalls one's "Rip Van Winkle" to mind. Back In Oliver Cromwell's time a hostelry stood on the site, and over Its doorway hung the protector's like ness. Hung there, too, until the res toration, when this tavern, like that which puzzled Rip, changed Its em blem.
