Th» Futuro A-mcricaii Theatrfl. Mocljefika—Countess Bozenta—beauti- ful Modjeska, who overflows with dramatic expression to her very finger tips, has given some valuable points to a New York Times reporter. Tlio best sign of progress for the American stage she flnda in the tendency towards combinations of great artista on one stage—such a combination as herself, Booth and Barrett will bring before the public this winter. . The real actor does his best when he haa In the same play with him another gifted artist to inspire him. True art knows no jealousy. Modjeska says the hardest work she ever had was to play with Indifferent actors in her own company. A star necessarily suffers from it and deteriorates. For this reason she disapproves thoroughly of the star system, and hopes it will i»e abandoned. There ought to be in the United States ' ono model theatre, where nil tho "actors are great artists. Other actors the country over could imitate these, and the whole stage would thus be elevated artistically. The model playhouse of tho world is the Theatre Francais, in Paris, she says. Such a theatre In this country would cost a mint of money, and Mme. Modjeska thinks it should be aupported by government, like the French one. But there •he ia miHtaknn. _ Weoui»ht to have such pn i7i!=t!tT.t!o'V everybody knows.: But we hare in the United States several hundred men—like those who have been lately spending so much money on single entertainments that compared to them Cleopatra would feel very small over her achievement of drinking off'her best pearl dissolved in vinegar. Our hundred millionaires—these are the ones who should build and endow our model theatre. Great wealth is a great trust. Modjeska says plainly that she never saw a society woman who amounted to anything on the stage. J3ho does not consider young Mrs. Elaine a society woman. A woman who is to be a real .actress cannot begin with the conviction that everything she does is charming. The (Treat artiste says further: Of courae » "society lady" Is helped by every body, and everything goes Bwectly for her person- sir/; bat there Is notlilii^ In IL~ If she wpuld begin. Ul wmbretto parts, be molded and called a fool a few Ucnea, as many a great actress has been. And sent home crying occasionally at the thought of bow little sho really knew, she couldnt Btand tbe trial. But that kind of ezperl- tnoa U what makes an octresa I don't believe ID anything that comes easy. The Steamer City ofjParts. • What Maud 8. is among trotters, the "City" of Taris is^TiiiiiJng^bcean" "racers/ There is nothing loft for her to beat except herself. Possibly it will be years before tho time mailo on her last mar relous trip will be surpassed, the one on which she lowered her own record hy 8 hours and 49 minutes. Let jt be remembered that in August, 1889, the steamship Paris crossed tho Atlantic in 0 days, 19 hours and IS minutes. The steamer seems to travel more stead- fly and comfoi tably the faster she goes. An interesting incident of thd trip was the meeting at which the passengers presented to Cupt. Watkin a resolution with •ix-feet of signatures congratulating him on the quick journey. The brave Ki»auuin'a speech iu return wasthis: "LadiiM and gentlemen, I thank you." There would have been an inglorious ending to tho meeting, then and ^thero, but it uph-atiing ~to I;now*"that an American newspaperman rose to tho occasion, and made a speech that moat at least h:ive astonished his British fellow passengeiu Mr. Medill, of Chicago, informed lua audience that tho City of .Paris and her splendid achievement were nothing else than a tribute to Yankee skill and enterprise. Nine-tenths of the capital of the 111111.111 line was American money, and the increase of one knot an hour tn the magnificent ship's speed was due solely to tho application of American improvements to her machinery. Other American orators followed in the same vein. When they were done glorifying our exploits the only Englishman who spoke at all arose and meekly said It wan all true. An Important item of educational news comes from Vassar college. It is that in the fall will bo opened for the girla a magnificent gymnasium, 100 feet long and 40 feet high. Besides all the ordinary athletic appliances, there will be a tank containing 47,000 gallons of water. It is said that some of tho Vassar glrla can already swim' a mile. With the new bath nearly all will be apt to learn. The man who gave that gymnasium to the school is the benefactor of the race.' Whatever tends to draw girla away from novels and chewing gum and feeble gweetishncss ia to be welcomed warmly. VasBar will send to us young women who as mothers, teach- era and professional and social lighta will giro glimpses of what the beautiful fcthletio woman of tbe future ia to be. One French Canadian family settled ia the town of Fall River, Mass., thirty years ago. At present this class of the pop- ulatioo there numbers twenty thousand. In New England it ia claimed that there are half a million French Canadians. Of French Canadian* In HasmochuaetU 61 ytfr cent, are unable to read and write.

ELABORATE TRAINING OF A SPEAKER IN THE OLDEN TIME. Imledne's CnlMratetl a« n Finn Art. ThoDr<:lln« Dua to the Diffusion or Cheap Literature—Oood Spenklng a* Important Now BJI ETPT. In antiquity tho training of nn oratot was almost as elaborate nn affair as tlio iraiiiing of n race horse is with us. ; Not only tho voice, but the whole man, physical, intellectual nml moral, was care- Fully prepared, with conscientious minuteness of detail, for the great business of life, tho making of speeches. In his system of education tlio development of the voice naturally held a large place, and tho phonascun, or voice driller, was an indispensable armoury, not only of every school of oratory, but of many formed orators. Of tho method:! of the phonascua we know little, but wo find hints in some of the classical writers that, like certain of his professional brethren in more recent days, ho was not disinclined to magnify his office. Seneca, in one of his letters, warns his friend against living, vocally speaking, in subjection to bis phoiKtseus, nnd implies that he might 03 well keep another artist to superintend his walking. In our own day tho phonascus still survives in public life, though perhaps more as n luxury than an acknowledged necesssity. SIX HOUR SPEECHES. A celebrated novelist, dramatic author and orator, who passed over to the great majority many years ago, used always to put himself under tho guidance of a vocal mentor beforo delivering a speech. Every tone, every pose and every gesture was carefully prepared nnd industriously practiced, under tho direction of Mr. Frederick Webster, brother of tho celebrated comedian, Benjamin Webster. That tho elaborate training of the ancients was eminently successful is shown by tho powers of endurance which it is clear they must have possessed. They habitually spoke for live or six hours, and even longer, and, in order to appreciate their (slaying puwu 1 , it must be remembered that they fcpolto in the open air, amid all the tumult of the forum, which was capable of holding 80,000 people, and with_arL amount of vigor of action of which the gesticulations of an Italian preacher ore but a palo reflex. Longwindeilness was at one time cultivated as a fine art by Roman orators, when they had to plead beforo k judge whom they supposed to bo in favor of the other side. These prototypes of our modern obstructionists wero aptly termed moratores, or delayers, because they postponed ns far as possible tho passing of tho sentence. The abuse finally reached such a height that a law had to be passed limiting tho length of pleadings in public cases to the running out of one clepsydra. It is impossible to say exactly what period of time this was equivalent to, as the water clocks of the Romans wero of'different' sizes, and the rapidity of flow must have varied under different circumstances; from twenty minutes to half an hour may, however, be taken as roughly representing, the average length of a speech under thin strict system of "closure." PRESENT NEED OP TRAINING. If the Romans curried tho culture of the speaking voice to a pedantic extreme, we,-On the other hand, undoubtedjy~neg- lect it too much. It ia not that we speak less, but that we havo less appreciation than the ancients had of oratory as a line art, and we aro therefore more tolerant of mumbling utterances and slovenly delivery. Many an inarticulate speaker,/who in these days hums and haws through an hour or two of dreary platitudes, would have been hooted down in five minutes by a Greek or Roman audience. The comparative decay of orators in modern times is duo to tho diffusion of cheap literature; the function of the public speaker has been to a great extent made obsolete by the daily newspapers. Information and arguments on'political matters, which had formerly to bo supplied by word of mouth from the rostrums, are now served up, spiced to each reader's taste, by innumerable "able editors." But though the necessity for what 1 may call "professional orators no longer exists, a large part of the business of the state in a free country must still be car-< ried on or controlled by talk, and the living voice must always have a power of stirring and swaying popular sentiment—the collective feeling of large masses of men, which is something more than the sum of their individual feelings —far beyond the reach of tho pen, John Bright's exquisite purity of stylo would have made him a most effective writer, but would his great speeches, if cut up into leading articles, have stirred the national heart ns did his burning words, thrown red hot among a living mass of enthusiastic hearers? On tho whole, I think wo use the voice In public even more than tha ancients, and there is, therefore, all tho more reason for ita being properly trained. Good speaking is nowadays importan t, not only from tbo artistic, but from the business point of view; and even for "practical men" it cannot be a waste of time to acquire so valuable a faculty.—Sir Morell Mackenzie in Contemporary Review. Legal Bon Moti. Sergt. Murphy was the. author of some excellent bon mots. When Mme. Soyer died the famous chef asked Murphy for an epitaph. She had been a lady of an arrogant temper, "and it was generally rumored that the poor cook had rather a warmer time of it at home than he had in the club kitchen." Murphy's suggestion for an epitaph was "Soyer tran- quille." A physician who was thinking of calling out some one who had insulted Ijim camo to consult Murphy about the Matter. "Take my advice," Murphy wid, "and instead of calling him out get him to call you in and have your re- vengo that way; it will be much more secure and certain."—Robinson in Bench •.ad Bar. BF.WELY HE MET DEATH. U« Uiul Done it Cutmrtlly Uoei), but Theae WKA Courage In Him. The steamship Hutobiuiion, from Havana, brought, besides other pa.*«euKers, a geutle- ouan who h&d witmttstfl thw execution in that city by tbo 8j>aukh army of a roiucript soldier uauwd Agulli). Ajftill./s ouVriae was tho taurdar of KU commanding w*?gt«uit, A Tiraa»-B»inoenit r»portar obtained frum the gectlMmuj a d««cHptkm of tb» military «»• catkwj, wliinb tuok [da™ at V»n I'rtiK-ipa: "I saw Aguilo t* ho ttoml tftrvctmg thanol- 4Jar* Ui «jju at hi* twuj au<l hoars .>u ttwi eorixtag f4 bk assseiiitmt," »avi liw .'jKijUw- pruy c'twill" fAirti-"-:, Tsnd from which point the hnrlmr view is crand, and AL'illlo, ca>tinij; ono fleeting plntico to wave lnp|fil Morn, fell, roed liy the throe bullets In IIH head, upon the narrow p»rn|>->t of Kurt rrinrlpe. One Inillet of the four destined fur him sped wide of Its mark, wounding HII officer to the rear and near the fort. "Agullo was a mn'u of magnificent physique, fit* feet tall, lino head, brilliant ores and a face denoting gentle birth anil refined intelligence. His long, military step —as he marched to the point of his execution in the square formed liy the corjw of eiu^ineers, In which he was enlisted, of artill-M-y, cavalry, volunteers nnd infantry—caus<-d murmurs of admiration to rise, to the lips of the 5,000 spectators curiosity brought together to witness the stern sentrnm of tho military court. "As ho stoixl, the central p'..'int of all eyes, dressed in his fatigue uniform, stri|>ed trousers and cap, directing his frllmv soldiers to aim with surety, the sml rontftnplntinn of n life which in other fields may have led to a successful career broke in upon tho s]xn;t«- tor with harshest feeling. Th«-re is no telling what grief laden hearts beat with suffering throbs in far away Spam, innocent victims alike with -their soldier sons com|wlled to serve the hated conscription in Cuba. But such la often the case, and this jioor Agullo, smarting under theuverl>earmg sergeant who fed him his food in insult as to a dog, burning under tlio adverse fate, became the assassin and slew his victim when asleep. "The prisoner's hours l>efore tho execution wero spent in calm, deliberate consideration. Ho had begged 11 friend to write to a brother and sister telling them of the close of his life, and altering his will by bequeathing a small house in Spain to his sister, which in a previous document he left to his brother, and spent much time in religious exercise. "At 5 o'clock in tho morning large crowds began steadily to wend their way toward Castello Principe. Senor Ellas, chief of police, and the colonel in command inspected tho square formed by tho military on tho northwest quarter of the esplanade, in the direction of tho chorern. "Tho condemned soldier, accompanied by the Brothers of Charity, saluted each onlooker with his farewell, aud, defying death, stood at tho spot where a jx>st had been placed for him to lean on to await his doom, without ono quiver of nervousness. Ho was heard to remark: 'I was n coward. I killed him while ho was asleep. That was badly done.' In tho preparations goinp on around him ho took active interest in tho direction of one thing and another, and then, calling a sergeant, from some distance, liadn him |.-;ooij-by, • u VViien the soldier? advanced to plnco thn baiidiig*? over his eyes he told them, putting his hand across his face: 'The-ro is no necessity for bandaging my eyes, but if absolutely necessary, I will bandage them my- solf.' . Ho took his own" handkerchief for this purpose, and loosely tied it so that he could see over tho edges. This he was told would not do, and for tho first time his fingers shook under tho strain upon his feelings, and-one of the chaplains stepped forward, securely knotting the ends of the bandage and firmly pressing down his cap to hold them in position. The soldier kissed the cross as his last gliinpso of earth was taken, and saw the four soldiers had come closer to him, as ho requested that death inifjlit be quick nnd certain. They had previously been tho military distance. These four soldiers had been given a cigar each and some money Jjy Agullo. Disregarding tho special plea of Agullo, these four men, as they looked at the livid countenance and eyes of feverish blaze when the request was made to come closer and closer, wero visibly disturbed. Agullo could touch the muales of the pieces^ Standing close to the post placed to support tho prisoner, at the order 'Kneel' he quickly sank to hia knees. Then tho four shots irregularlyraug out,- and the body leaning against the post foil to the ground dead.''—New Orleans Times-Democrat. More Human I*errorsit3'; "Two of the most dangerous days for us, said an aged Trout in delivering a lecture to tho riMns £"n.Tu!ion, " tho Fourth of ,l!i!y anil IV-enrntion <lny. On thr«r> days tho p*viplo of tliU country throw work awiclo and a largfi proportion hlo themselves to th«> brooks. Tho Fourth of July is kept, in commemoration of the success of tho American forces in tho revolutionary war. That must have been a glorious event, Judging from the t usa and Uia noUo made over it.- Tl<*c<?raUon day is in honor of the suppression of a rebellion, nnd this must have boon a wid event, aa the people all look mournful and a great many go to cemeteries and weep. Human beings aro curious things. They celebrate one event by rejoicings and another bvtears. I know lit tin of human events, lint It strikes mo that thero is as much cause for tears in one as in tha other. Some human lx»ings, however, celebrate all such events by trying to catch us, and the Fourth of July and Decoration day in our almnimc ought to be fast days. On those, two days you want to bo suspicious of everything, and tho best thing you can do is to remain hidden under a bank, arid not IMS coaxed out by either worm fly, no matter how attractive they may he."—New York Herald. An Artful Wmmiu. People who attended tho weekly market in Contnnoes, Fiance, somo years ego, wero surprised to see a j-ensant woman offering for Male a horse, which was tariffed ut four shillings. The same woman was selling a dog, for which she demanded twenty pounds. They thought she tiust be mad and told her do. "Bo that as it may,'" she said, "the man who wants to havo the horse for four shillings must first Uiko the dog at twenty pounds." A purchaser eventually secured the two, and afterward would havo the explanation. It transpired that tho deceased husband of tho artful peasant woman had in- itructed her In' his. will to sell hU dog and his horse. Tho price of the dog was to be hers, and that of tho horse she was to pay over to the family.—Pittsburg Chronicle-Telegraph. Blnl l*oj;, Wfttcli !>*>£, ami Nurse.

Dry Rut. So destructive are the depredations of dry rot that it may well be called tho terror and despair of architects and carpenter's. No care or precaution can be too great to prevent IU entrance into a building, for if once It finds o lodgment its eradication U herculean, if not an impossible task. Professor Burnett, a competent authority, graphically relates how a house lie occupied was twice renovated In four years, and had ultimately to be pulled down. In the old era of oak built ships, they were sometimes found to be uusoaworthy before they left tho stocks, with such celerity does it do Its deadly work. An for remedial measures, prevention is tho only • certain cure. Tlio selection of sound, well seasoned timber is as essential as the avoidance of damp and the securing of adequate ventilation in every part of the structure. The most efficacious prophylactic is saturating tho timber with creosote undci high pressure, so as to thoroughly permeate every portion of the wood. This has been practically proved "hr coal and other mines where this destroyer runs riot, and its ravages entail much cx]>enso nnd Insecurity, and where its waving flakes of- fleecy white havo a most weird and ghostly effect in the "darkness visible" of the pit. In certain inii'ies .in tho north of England where only crcosoted timber has been used for the lust thirty years, tho extra cost, has been amply repaid by tho comparative Indestructibllit) of tho timber thus treated.
