The difference between them lies chiefly in the fact that the leaves of the kale, while wrinitled like the cabbage, do not follow the latter in forming a. solid head. The sprouts of the kale are edible, and taste much like those of the cabbage. However, in its native habitat, the Isle • of Jersey, its leaves are used to feed the diminutive cows that have aided to render tlie name of Jersey a farmyard- word all over tho world. The Californian experimenter finds that the succulent green leaves are much relished by chickens, nnd a point in favor of the plant is'that it produces grcun leaves the year round. The Berkeley monstrosity lias taken nine months id reach its present height. Its stock is not so large as a man's- waist at tlie root, and tapers gradually to the seed brunches, "ten ici't from the ground. To this height the stem has been stripped of its leaves, rendering- its resemblance to a hickory sapling very remarkable. The top is surmounted by feathery bunches of small yellow fiou'crs. . .-proper «'tiy is to tuck' the little square of linen nml face in one's sleeventthe wrist. n!!o\v'uifc it, to frill and partially 'conceal the hand, somewhat after the • manner of the- pretty wist flounces on 1be new sleeves.

GWENDOLINE NORTH, the short supplementary season which Abbey & Grau played there was more or less of a sop and not, a distinct compliment. Philadelphia's'social season covers the same period as New York's, and Philadelphia did not care to have the opera after the social season -had come to an end, hence -she cut loose from Abbey & Grau and organized an opera company of her own this year, •which was not-overwhelmingly success-- ftil. ' ' * * * Among the last of the legitimate productions in New York was that of Miss Julia Marlowe, a young American actress who has appeared in a great variety of plays, and wlioso success shows that she is improving in sentimental and romantic plays. A most lifelike portrait of this actress Is pre- 'sente-d in this letter. Another young American actress is Miss 'Georgia Busby, 'Whose success as -an actress Is emphasized by.tlie extraordinary fondness which photographers, display for. her. She Is'to-day bne ot the most widely photographed of the younger actresses of America. ' V If "* "Wham," a comic opera, In two acts,. written by J. M. Morrison, music by D,. K. Stevens, was produced for the first time on any stage recently at the Tacoma Theatre, Tacoma, Wash. Tha story: The King of W-ham, alarmed at: the increase-of divorces in -his kingdom, Issues a proclamation-forbidding flirta- 1 tlons and requiring all 1 marriages" to •have his consent, the penalty for violating this mandate being death; Nun- sock, captain oC the court, -declares his love for Angela, who refuses'.him and says she is engaged to Yah-Yah, the prime minister.

'but for New York and tactless New Yorkers. Before she left she relieved her mind In San Francisco, and said very sarcastic things about Augns- tin Daly. Mr. Daly however, was too busily engaged eating the dainties provided for him 'by the Shakespeare Society to pay and attention to her little ebullition, and Mr. Dorney had nothing at all to say. Mrs. Potter asserted that she Hked Mr. Daly very much as a man, but declined to recognize him as a manager. This must have been a severe blow to Daly, and it was a very cruel remark for Mrs. Potter to have ma-de. I always thought that she was too kind and charitable a woman to 'deliberately attempt to injure a well- known manager.. Mrs. Potter's failure •to recognize Mr. Daly as a manager must hurt him. New York' and Lon|don were simply Baiting for this ex- .presslon of opinion, and now that it .has been given Us effect can scarcely .prove otherwise than calamitous. There 'arc some people, however—just a tiny 'minority—who -. w ; ill,;"Rsserr that Mrs. •Potter had thc ; .chance o£ her life at 'Daly's Theatre.' She"had been yearning to appear as Juliet, and she had first innings at a time when that Shakespearean drama bad entered upon one of its spasmodically popular episodes. Mrs, tat. Campbell -had just boomed'the fad In London, and Julia Marlowe- Taber was about to do it in New York. Mrs!' Potter rushed w In ; an'd—failed. It was too much for her, but'she-b!a.med Daly for the failure. He didn't advertise R. He omitted to boom it in the highways and byways of the city. He was too much occupied with the company headed by Ada Rehan to give it the aid it called for. Mrs. Potter's own shortcomings never, dawned upon her, and she went away in high dudgeon. However, no irreparable harm has been done. In spite Of all reports' to the contrary, it is more than probable that Mrs. Potter ant! Kyrle will 'return to America next season, I hear that they are after a certain play that Is now. being done in London, a.nd that if they get It they will forget their little, antipathy to this country. In fact; they -have signed contracts with Frank L. Pei'ley and Frank Hennessey, I am told, wits an American tour in viow. . No:™ of HID stiiffc. There arc said to be in England more than 20.000 acloi'S and actresses.

There la one feature of .a Loulevlll* race meeting that calls forth almost as much enthusiasm as does the Derby Itself, It Is the half mile race for the Debutante stakes. In this race 2-year- old fillies make their debut on the turf. They are, as a rule, rare specimens of equine beauty, and when they are paraded before the start the men and boys In the 'big crowds cheer, and the ladies, of whom there are are always thousands In attendance, wave their handkerchiefs and apply all sorts of fond, admiring titles to their favorites. Then comes the race and the excitement Increases a thousand fold. 1 Cleophus, the remarkable fllly, who won this year's Debutante stakes recently, is as beauiiful as she is fast. She was a favorite from the first. However, her prospects seemed somewhat dubious when the time came for the test to be made. Eight fine, ambitious daughters of mighty racing sires were pitted against her. She had never faced a starter, and she was nervous. The applause which her great beauty called forth excited her st.ill more. She •was particularly restive at the post and spoiled three starts, but she was in motion when the flag did fall, and then she stretched horselt o;it and drew away from the field in grand style. When she went under the wire in 0:4S flat and broke the record, the crowd •went wild. Cleophus is a grand filly, and should she train on there is little doubt that she will take a place in tho ,>_— »// ¥&$' Wf . & 3& GENERAL SPORTING. ITEMS OF INTEREST TO LOVERS OF OUT-DOOR PLAY.

During the recent big shoot at Guttenburg, James A. R. Elliott, of Kansas City, Fred Gilbert, ot Spirit Lake, la., and Charles Grimm, of Clear Lake, la., •had an argument regarding Hie relative merits o£ each pigeon shooter, and Grimm offered to back himself and Gilbert against Elliott for S250 a si^e, at 100 live birds each. Elliott refused to make a match at the time, bn.t offered to shoot both later en in the season, and tills summer or fall will no doubt eee a match between the two -men. If shot on even terms Elliott ought to win, although in young Gilbert he will find one of the -hardest men -he ever tackled. Although comparatively oC short experience as a professional shooter, Gilbert is looked upon as the corn-ing cliampton live bird shot ol the country: He won the DyPont live bird trophy last October, made a good showing at this year's grand American handicap and won the clay bird championship oC America last week at Gutten- bcrg, when he defeated all the cracks In tlie country. Chnrles M. Grimm is one of the best all-round shots today, and in 1S93 he won the live-bird tour- RANK P. Slavn, the Australian heavyweight pugilist, who arrived In America recently and wen tat once Into training for hi* coming fight with Peter Maber, ft . said to be getting into excellent form. The reports that have been coming from England concerning bis ill health and generally broken down condition are at once seen to be utterly false by anyone who looks upon his brawny figure to-day. When he arrived, a week or two ago., he weighed 194 pounds. Now he weighs considerably less, and by tlie date of his contest with Mabcr, he expects t» have reduced his avoirdupois to ISO pounds. Slavin is the picture of good health and looks fit for a dozen battles. He is cheerful, too. and feels certain that he will be the victor in the coming struggle. He also has designs on Corbett and Fitzsimmons. "As Cor oet t turned the championship over to Maher," said he recently, "I feel that, should I defeat the latter, I •will be entitled to a fight with cither Fitzsimmons or Corbett, and you can depend that I will learn if either of them really wishes to fight." To show how thoroughly in earnest" the Australian Is in bis determination to defeat Maher one has only to consider the stern rigidity of his training. On board the Paris, while en route for America, he was exercising constantly and never spared himself. The greater part of tlie time on board was passed FRANK P. SLAVIN. In the coal bunks, where he pitched coal for hours, like a veteran stoker. •;Mbr:n, the celebrated French blcy- clist, beat John S. Johnson, 'the American, in both heats of the 2,000 metres raro at the Velodrome de la Seine,"at Paris, France, May 17. Following i» the cabled account of the affair: The appearance of the two racer* was.- made the occasion for a hearty outburst of applause. Again, during the race, Johnson was accorded an ovation when he slopped >to allow his adversary to change a -punctured tire. Upon the resumption of the race Johnson led, and after several attempts . -to get Morin in front, so as to force •him to set the. pace, both stopped and: leaned against tlbe railings. Morio thereupon dismounted and walked off, while Johnson finished the course.; This match was, however, declared- void, owing to the leaning on the railing.- Upon this the crowd -hooted and! applauded, according to the direction, their-sympathies-took. A pacemaker was then provided, Johnson again look the le.i-d and all efforts to get Morin in front proved futile. At the lastbend In the course Johnson spurted but Morin caught him and finished a length ahead. The second.beat was a repetition of the tactics in the first, Johnson being forced into the lead. He nament at the'world's fair at Chi-cago-, j 6 purted upon entering' tlie last l."p s 95 out of 100 birds.
