the age of 91 years, Mrs. Philena Sexton, who yet retains the bright faculties which marked her for one of the best educated of her time, remembers well the day when Lafayette visited America and was honored by the people of her village in memory of the brilliant campaign led by him in the revolution. Mrs. Sexton was born August 19, 1S13, st New Lebanon, about eighteen miles from Albany, New York. In her mind's eye she yet carries a view of the Cats-kill mountains, the Shaker villages, with their quaint customs, and all the manners of the period at the close of the revolutionary war.

Of the great booming of cannon on the day of the completion and opening of the great Erie canal, she has a vivid recollection. This great waterway was been calculated to serve as one of the most complete and modern of carriers and but few people dreamed that there would be a day of locomotion to su Holmes, disguised as a boatman, comes to the rescue. Then comes the greatest thrill of all. He is overpowered, bound hand and foot to a keg of powder and a slow fuse lighted. Tne detective begs for a cigar as a favor, which is granted.

The villains run off to get outside the danger line. Holmes, with his lighted cigar, burns the rope that binds him and escapes with Mary. Down coines the curtain and the audience yells and applauds in frenzied delight. Sherlock, without a cigar, would be as helpless as King Arthur without Ex-eulibar, Thor divorced from his hammer and Aladdin without his lamp. The treasure Is Anally recovered, the villains fitly punished and Sherlock has won another desperate case.

The work of True S. James as the celebrated detective took the audience by storm lust night. It was really admirable. He played the character along the lines made familiar by the Gillette play, but there was nb attempt at imitation. It was a clean-cut characterization and thoroughly satisfying.

The work of dramatization has been well done, too, for the play moves swiltly and effectively in its thrilling couise, "Woodland," the new Pixley and Luders musical comedy, which was to have been presented at Foster's next Monday and Tuesday, has cancelled.

PLAY HOUSES AND PLAYERS "BUSTER BROWN" Musical farce, founded on the Outcault pictures, arranged by Charles Newman and George Tot- ten Smith. Presented at Foster's last night, R. F. Outcault has given us some highly humorous examples of childish pranks in his Busier Brown series of pictures in the New York Herald.

At Foster's last night Buster's escapades formed the motive of a lively farcical entertainment with musical and vaudeville trimmings. There is no one too old not to enjoy the pranks of Buster and his dog, Tige, and to the chiidien the performance is a greater delight thii a Christmas tree with red and green candles. Comedy ability is not to be reckoned by Indies or weight. Master Gabriel, the wonderfully clever Lilliputian who makes a very picture-like Buster Brown, is 39 Inches tall and weighs 32 pounds. Helias in him the fun-making ability of a giant comedian.

His antics as the prankish youngster kept the audience in roars of laughter, and such a typical boy does he look in tne Buster n.ake-up that there was much discussion over his age. Know, then, that Master Gabriel is old enough to vote today, ana if you could observe him at close range the lines around his eyes and the shrewd mouth would show that he has spent a number of years in tne wor una improved each hour. He was born In New York In isM, ami has two full-grown brothers and sisters who live with his father at Wicktord, R. I. George All's impersonation of the dog, Tige, was a distinct teature of the performance.

With such aumirable detail was the part carried through that one-half imagined tne animal imitator to be munching dog biscuit between the acts, iina Randall, widely heralded as a beauty, has the appropriate role of Susie hweet and is the leituer of a beauty show of femininity that gyrate gayly in a number of prettily arranged uances and marches. Knute Erickaon plays a Swede character with good enect, and Al Lamon had several amusing moments as the tramp. 'I he other roles were acceptably taken, and the performance moved with snap and dash. A feature of uie vaudeville portion was the musical act of the ive iNosseB, which ranks high in reiinement and merit. W.

ous system, according to Dr. Hill, is caused by lack of sleep. The muscles of the body may be much rested during moments of comparative quiet or idleness, but no complete rest for the brain can be secured except by sleep. Habit has much to do In securing the needed amount of sleep and retirement at a regular hour Is among the best of habits to form, as insomnia often results from Irregular hours of sleep. The amounts required varies in the Individual, but the your man can hardly tret along in the modern world of brain fatigue and overwork with much 1ph than eight hours of sleep out of the twenty-four.

The strain on the nervous system of the American of todny is not so due altogether to the business habits of rush formed, but greatly to the desire of the young niRn who launches into almost nny branch of the intellectual life for a higher education, which means study and worry. Then the desire of the youth for excitement and sensation wears more than anyone believes on the nerves. Mora Addresses Arranged. Dr. Hill's address was the fifth of a series of short lectures by specialists In all lines of life, which are to be given every Monday night during the winter directly following the reilnr Monday night supper of the association.

What they say in Japan: First the man takes a drink. Then the drtnk takes a drink, Then the drink takes the man." In this ewmtry it is estimated that elghty-twe thousand women miend their time talking temperance, and one of tlnise people tvli know just how to reform the world thinks that if these women would learn to cok. and then teach others how, more would be accomplished for the cause of temperance.

This Is hut another way of expressing th trite saying that "Poor cookery drives men to strong drink." It Is undeniably true that food but partly digested rraatea a gnawing sensation which call for something to deaden the, uncomfortable feeling; also that food that undernotrtthe, even if well cooked. prf-duces what is commonly called an "all gone" feeling that Is next to indigfjetion for produfltng discomfort. Our forefathers were fed largely on foods with "staying" qualities, like the New Englaad boiled dinner, baked Indian pudding pork and beans, and tradition would have one believe that all women were than good cooks. But in the old days men atrak hard elder and New England mm Tn in greater proportion than they now take strong drink. Undoubtedly men were flad of any excuse then as now for taking a dram, whether they rejoiced or stsurned, were ailing or in good bealih.
