The Brilliant Aetremt It of th« Opinion That It Will Not Be Excelled by Fl»ymakeri for » Long Time—Religion on tlie Stage. CONSIDER THE production of "Hannele" of immense importance to the stage and to actors, It is undoubtedly tho most elevated drama ever attempted on our stage, and as an actress, us an individual- who wants to honor and to love my profession, I welcome it wit.i open arms. We have too long' hcon condemned to unholy passions, to unprofitable and ridiculous problems. Wo have a noble art, the noblest iii the world, and we huvo u right to use in its service the finest thoughts. We have been defrauded of our rights for years. To-dav we are again refused religion. . Why are we not to be allowed to pronounce the word of God, or the words of Cod, on the stage? Have we no need of God? Has he n<i use for 'us? Are we to be ostracised and made pariahs? Is it not possible to act reverently as well as to preach reverently? We do not do so, you say. Are you sure? And do you Jo all you ought to do; all you arc capable of doing? Not yet. I fancy. Neither do we—yet! I'.ut this, ranch is true: There will- never be much religion in the world until it lives where the heart lives. The change which has come over the stage and its people within tho last twenty- live years proves that the objections heaped upon it are entirely unfounded. The purpose of our existence is to entertain, you say? 1 grant that. But to entertain the highest as well as the lowest The cry of somo of tho papers, and of many of the people, today, that it is impossible to feel any reverence in,a theater, is a grosa and Cruel libel on the human heart "Hannele" will not have imitators for a long time, if'ever. It is not possible to. reach the highest level often. It takes a, great deal to write as in this play; it takes high living, high character and a great mind. Wo all know that these are not common. Mr. Gerry of the New York Society for the Suppression of Vice objects to the play, Ho refuses to consider it in any light but that of sacrileee. He has a perfect right to his opinion, iiffht MTOri.

Joseph Start, the veteran ex-professional first baseman, probably played ball longer than any other man connected, with tho national game. He played ball for twenty-eight consecutive seasons. Ho was a member of the Enterprise club, a leading junior organization of Brooklyn, in 1S60, with which club he remained after it became a member of the National association until 1S(12, when he, Chapman and Crano joined the then famous old Atlantic club, also of Brooklyn. Start' 'remained with the latter .club until J871, when he, Smith, 1'carce and Ferguson became members of ;ih'a. Mutual club of Philadelphia, whose games were then played on the old' Union grounds, Brooklyn, E. D. Startpluyed with tho Mntuals until the close of tho season of JS7G. In ls"7 lie joined with the Hurtfords and played one season with them at Brooklyn, under Robert Ferguson's management. In 1S7S Start went to Chicago and played with the professional team that represented that city in tho National league, in JSTO Start signed with the Providence club and remained with it until the close of the season of 1S3.1. His last professional engagement was with tho Washington cltfb in 188(i Xho ON THE UP UKAUK, Quality a right to make his protest It is a world is full of Mr. Gerrys. waste of time to discuss them. I have a profound conviction that "Hannele" will touch to its uttermost depths every heart in the audience; that after the curtain is raised and the play fairly started, the thought of irreverence or sacrilege will be as far off as the Himalayas from the mind of every spectator; that every human being will go out of that theater nobler than when he or she entered it. As actors, as writers, as thinking people, we ought to be thankful for all the 'discussion this attempt has aroused. We ought to be grateful to the defenders, grateful to the producers of the great play; but I think' we con sum it all up in a few words and say that the one vital, everlasting debt is to be to the author—tho man of spiritual vision and spiritual courage, who has dared to grasp and to hold and to make a living picture of the most splendid things that humanity can offer to art of Ilutjobxll Attoudanoo oiiiInK Hotter. Baseball is not only becoming 1 more popular, but it is also growing fashionable. In St. Louis l-ieut.-Gov. O'Bleum iind Jlaj'or \Valbridg-e were on the grounds, and each made a short speech'before the game. lu Washington the administration was represented by Attorney-General Olney, who is a "crank" of the most pronounced type. He was accompanied by Hon. Allan JohnsUme, secretary of the British embassy, who, as well as Sir Julian Pauncefoto, is a frequent attendant at baseball games. Baron Clemens von Kettler of the German embassy escorted a party of ladies to the ground. Then there were almost enough rncm- 'bers from both houses of congress scattered through tho grand stand and among the boxes to make a quorum had the roll been called by the umpire. In Baltimore among the spectators were Judge Morris of the United States court, Mayor La trobe, ex-Mayor Davidson, the postmaster and six min- and I isters from the city churches. The Tho public recognition of the great sport by the highest officials and by the heads of churches is what endears it •to the hearts of the great masses. The sport is now where it was in 18SO, before the players' revolt, and it promises to enlarge its hold upon the people until no other out-of-doors sport will ever be a rival. — Sporting Life.

She is an exceedingly beautiful woman, and is said to belong to a Russian family of distinction. Because of her connection with political matters she was obliged to leave VERA* homeland, and as her knowledge of English was too limited to permit of her assuming a part in any play just at present, Mr. Rice has decided to make her the central figure of one of the new series of Kilanyi living pictures in "149&" _.

Tho ten-mile championship foot race at Huddersfield, England, was won by Sid Thomas in 51 minutes 37 seconds. Watkins was second and Roberts third. Harvey .nYiengst of Lebanon, Pa., and D. J. Cuke of Cumberland, Md., ran. a 100-yard foot race at Lebanon, for $1,000 and 8600 side bets. Yiengst won in 10% seconds. In tho Harvard interclass championship games, April 23, F. E. Elliot, '95, broke the Harvard record for the two- mile bicycle event by two-fifths of a second. The freshmen won the games and the Wells Cup, scoring 39 points, while '95, the expected winner, waa second with 34. Secretary James E.

The Cincinnati pitchers are giving 1 so many bases on balls that the local papers are howling about it. Ex-Pitcher "Jersey' 1 Bakely, is living in retirement nt Baltimore. Pitcher Hawke has come to terms' with the Baltimore club, and Pitcher Klrtley Baker has been released. John M. Ward and his erstwhile bosom friend, Tim Murnane, are on tho outs, and the breach is probably permanent The Loulsvilles at present are doing the lightest hitting in the league and only good pitching has held them up. Young Niland is doing splendid in Toledo. Jerry Denny's work on Louisville's third bag has been above.the standard. It is some years since there has boon such good all-around playing in the league at tho opening as. there h»s been this season, Charley Van Haltren, a six-loot brother of George Van Haltren, has been signed a* first baseman of the Amsterdam, N.

In view of the prodigious importance of words and the wealth of self- explanation which they carry along with them, bygone scholars, and even some now among us, have not thought it a waste of time to give a whole existence to the profound study of them, as to accent, sound and inner meaning. Some of the old commentators will bestow twenty pages of closely- written Latin or Greek upon a sinple particle. Nay, those earnest bookworms and transcribers who have (riven us our written speech in snoh perfection carried their di>ep reverence for absolute cor- rootness in language beyond long words and short words into the letters themselves and their formation. Not •without profound lessons for careless speakers, writers and students is that •log-end of the Talmmlical times, relating how the small letter "yod" being one d:iy budl.vput upon the parchment misi-d itself up and "cried aloud to Uod." A word is really one ot the most wondiirful things of man's creation, and deserves to be respected, properly understt.od and ciirufnlly employed iind pronounced. It* m:i.y often hide within its noble moving In'storJtf.s. ihonffh lightly used, just as the clod which the plowman turns may conceal :i treasure. Take, for instance, the term "colophon." which printers npply to tlie close* of a. printed volume. Which of them asks why it should moan "tlie end," or recalls the fact that Colophon was that one of tiie twelve Ionian confederate cities which furnished cavalry to the leag-ne, and those horsemen were so jrood and valiant that they always finished off a buttle victoriously, so thai "to come to Colophon" was to put the last touch U> :i business'.' It U greatly to lie desired that in the course of their teaching public Mid private instructors everywhere would jrivu themselves more pains to explain and elicit for their students the inner history and force of words. Few, indeed, there nre in any lanjruage which will not yield up to patient and enlightened analysis some illuminating record of how they came upon the tongues of men. Some are as ancient as tho first sound that was babbled by a child to its mother; some have whole histories in them: some are new, ufjly and incorrect, and, like "scientist," "authoritarian" and "electrocution," vex the scholarly ear with their base construction. Possibly the new school of English literature at Oxford may effect something to revive a'nd encourage the declining- study of words. It is only the ignorant and the foolish who think that it matters little how we deal in speech and script with these coins of the mind.—London Telegraph. HEREDITARY TENDENCIES. One rhttie In tho Development of Human Clkarnoter. • Some insane instincts, as a matter of fayt, do exist among us, revealing their destructive ferocity in a thousand forms of sufferirfg, sin, shame and temptation. Not a living soul has entirely escaped some injury, hereditary or immediate, direct or indirect, froin their lordships. Yet we are instructed to retard them as scarcely modifiable factors of existence. They recall to memory the fabulous monsters of ancient story, who used to ravage and destroy whatever crossed their path, carrying terror to the hearts of men, until at length no hero went forth to slay them. The monsters of to-day, unhappily, do not permit themselves to bo slain too easily. They spit fire, as of yore; they rend and pierce and tear, but they are no longer to be overcome in one sharp struggle, after the fashion of their more worthy ancestors. It is through the mysterious forces of hereditary that the evil gathers such unholy strength, It seems as if nature had some mystic storehouse wherein she garnered secretly, moment by moment, the thousand influences of daily life; the lurings and compulsions of circumstance; and that these, accumulating silently and inexorably, became transmuted into living passions, imperious needs, which we are wont to call "natural impulses." and to accept in tho same resigned spirit as that in which tho Germans' welcome typhoid fever as part of the divine scheme. There is something appalling in the knowledge that because a mun'sgrand- father allowed evil habits to grow upon him, that man is to be cursed all his life with some awful punishment; tormented, perhaps, with a strength of mere crude instinctentirely Out of harmony with his whole character, causing him infinite struggles, unless the worse thing happen—again through the existence of some hereditary weakness—and he surrenders the human side of him to the encroachments of the animal.—Westminster Review. ON ITS OWN RAILS! -—It is a matter of sincere regret that Mr. Chanler, the last and youngest of African explorers, should have been compeled to turn back from Galla and Somali Lands, that vast region of ninety thousand square miles, bounded on the north by Cape Guardafui and the Abyssinian highlands, and on the south by the River Tana. Though for centuries trading ship* have touched along the Somali coast, yet we have next to no knowledge about the interior uplands. —As showing how easily London shopkeepers are taken in, Miss Halliday, a young lady of twenty-five, of no occupation, and with no visible means of subsistence, has Just passed her examination In bankruptcy with 110,000 liabilities, and "no asset*." —The valley of the Amazon is larger than that of the Mississippi, the former river draining 9,380,000 square miles, the Mississippi 1,344,600 square miles, Th* Amaion drains a greater arM than a»y other riw on the f lob*.
