It is so simple. Vou frivo the- lamp of the (jcnius':i seven shilling: rub—and Mr. Tree does the rest. When ait.-ui lias been (icliyhtcd with n perfonmince and yet is afraid to say so, 1 have my opinion of him, writes Stinson Jarvis in Leslie's Weekly. Apparently tlic popular critical faculty lies in fmclinjr out what other peopic think. Then run I no true critic, and may I j,'0 without a grout if 1 ever wail for 'what other people think. Mr. Tree has g-ivun me evenings regarding which memory recalls neither ilaw nor rasp. There seemed to be nothing 1 to alter or improve, And xvhcn we think of the many other occasions when wo have been forced to squirm and twist in our scats, when we have longed to assault different actors with a barrel stave, then it is a relief to remember one man as a sort of oasis in a wild and weary desert. The first two plays on liis program are "The Red Lamp" and "The IJal- lad-mon£ror," and while those may satisfactorily exhibit the width and diversity of this actor's powers, it maybe questioned whether they will provide as entertaining 1 an evening as A Bunch of Violets." To say that this London favorite play is by Sidney Grundy is to also state Us undeniable cleverness. The part; taken by Mr. Tree is that of tho titled trustee in whose control "The Widow's Mite" and other charity funds are deposited. This voluble and brainy hypocrite speculates with the moneys and em- bczv.lus thorn a.11. His manners are perfect—also his address—and the part ,s a line one for an actor's; triumph,because when creating 1 detestation in the spectator it can not rely on those sympathies in which heart-warmth so often banishes criticism. The play hits at institutions which delight to parade great names as figureheads for internal rottenness; xncl it is in another way of real value n milking 1 a recluetio ad absurdnm of the anarchists. This problem of squar- ng- tho shapeless was beyond Euclid. .11 Eng-laud, anarchism, like other un- required peculiarities, is caused to die rom an overwhelming 1 sense of its own absurdity. And in America this much of violets will lose nothing of .heir heaUhfu). perfume. Practically it is a bunch of disinfectants. Mr. Crunch- strikes at the frailties of the hifhes't and the lowest with unerring- of nature's,. lo.wer ,grades,.. : perhaps.. »: nice choice in unpleasantness is all we can as yet hope for in the playwright. What a saving in vulgarity if Dame Nature had always been the Emoress Mrs. Gruiidy! I can not but regret that "Tho Pompadour," played in'63 or'S9, does not appear on the list. To state that Mr. Tree is sometimes more satisfactory than Mr. Irivjng is pcrlmps to claim too much for youth and eoually valuable differences. The grandeur of Beeket and the sweetness of the old vicar can not be displaced; yet for acting and pathos th'' half demJhted husband of "The Pompadour'' in his heartbroken search for hi-; erring wife lias seemed to rank llrst. After all our praise is too much like the forgotten English grammar to be taken seriously The adjectival substantive tits in with our owu personal pronoun and agrees with our moods aa . tense.-;—and that is all we can say.

STATISTICS OF THE TURF. Flsurps CU-aned Intcre.stin™ F.i from Llie K i-r'.ish rVifi-is Cnleinlnr. Some rather interesting 1 statistics connected with the turf have been gleaned from an English racing calendar for ItiO-l, which has just been published. From this we lean; that the average number of races during the period of six years has been well maintained, the only falling off being in four mile events.

TROTTING TRACK FOR A PONY. The Unusiml Conceit of rt Wealthy Man I In ISroriktyn. f , A wealthy Brooklyn mz\ recently built a handsome residence in a densely populated part of the cily. His action created considerable surprise among- his friends, as the structure he erected would have been an ornament to the most fashionable neighborhood in the city. It adjoined a coal yard, while directly opposite it are a. number of ramshackle frame buildings, each one of which provides homes for half a dozen families. The man's next move was to purchase and then tear down, one of these houses and erect a fino red brick stable in its place- liis lust action, however, has stamped him as a really fecentric character. He purchased the coal yard behind his house, tore down the fences, nnd then had the place leveled ofE. Then he had a small trotting track laid out. The remainder of the ground he had sodded with the finest gross obtainable, then an iron fence was erected, through which the whole of the interior is visible.

Cissy Fitzgerald, ail English dancer, has just engaged her services to an American theatrical manager at $500 a WCCR, to do a dnucc every evening during the week, and at one mtitinpe. She came from London a few weeks ago, and showed in New York. Her dance was the most daring, suggestive and sensuous thing that had ever been attempted in Gotham, and she had the town at her feet.
