Miss Georgio Cayvan at last camo upon the r stage, wearing a wreath of roses, which Henry Miller, her lover, was in frenziod wrath to tear from her head. Mr. Miller was deeply interested in his part, and when Miss Cavvon saw him advancing towards her, she paled slightly. On ho camo, as though ho were the victim of real and not mimio passion. He reached Miss Cayvan and tore from her head tho wreath, but his knucklos and hand camo so forcibly upon tho eyo of the little lady that she screamed, and called out 1 "Oh!" " That is not in your part, Miss Cayvan," severely remarked Mr. Belasco. The Bttlo lady, however, was in pain. Mr. Miller was profuse in his regrets nnd his offers of vaseiino. Miss Cayvan smiled, and, as the ridioulous sldo of tho situation struck her, she laughed. "Mr. Miller," said Mr. Belasco. "You must omit this realism for tho future." Then everyone was restored to good humor, but Miss Cayvan wears a blackcnod eyo as a bouvenir of tho rehearsal. The production of "The Wife" at tho Lyceum Theatro, noxt Tuesday week, gives to New York a now stock company, which, with the Daly, Wollack and Palmer companies, makes a good showing for the metropolis. Now York is the only city in tho union with any stook companies at all, with tho exception of Boston, where the Museum holds its own. David Bidwell, of Now Orleans, tried to organize a stock company in that city soma time ago, but he found the experiment expensive, and Anally gave it up in disgust. Mr. Daniel Frohman, of tho Lyceum Theatre, is a great believer in American plays, and, during his regime at the Madison Square Theatre, " Esmeralda " and " Hazel Kirko " were produced. " The Wife" is distinctly American. It was written to suit the members of the company, and in J the event of its succobs, after tho regular sea son in New York, it will bo seen in Boston, Chicago and San Francisco. "Lovo's Martyr," tho first rehearsal of 'which will take place at the Madison Squaro Theatre to-day, has had a peouliar history in this city. The American rights in tho play were originally purchased by Manager A. M. Palmer lust yoar from the Franco-American Company, which controlled " Theodora " in this country. Mr. Palmer producod the play in Chicago two summers ago with his regular company, and also, later in San Francisco. The phenomenal success of " Jim tho Penman " delayed the production of" Love's Martyr" hero. Another version of the play was presented at the! Third Avenue Theatre last year by Miss Bertha Welby and lost week Miss Clara Morris produced it at the Grand Opera-Houso as ,'Bene'e." So that Mr. Palmer is third in tho New York field, though his splendid stock company will undoubtedly place him first in point of excellence. The artless gossips who wngged their tongues about difficulties supposed to exist between Mrs. James Brown Potter and her husband must be taken abaok by tho devotion she has shown that gentleman since her return to America. When not at rehearsal or , attending to stage details, Mrs. Potter is con stantly with her husband. The reason of his visit to England was simply to try and pro-vail upon her to abandon the stage. But tho fact that he was unsuccessful had no further result. Managers the most superstitious beings on tho face of tho earth feel pretty sure that Mrs. Potter will succeed from tho fact that a new star is said to arise every five years. It is now that time since Mrs. Langtry fecored her first success. It is not generally known that Tom Whiff en has returned to his mutton in this country. Mr. Whiffen was at ono time leading comedian in the Madison Square Theatre. He was also the Admiral in the Standard Theatre ; version of "Pinafore." Mr. Whiffen has . ' been In England for the last two years. For the last three or four days any one who rode up Broadway in n surface car botween noon and 1 o'clock might have seen a gentleman poring over a blue-bound copy or Itider Haggard's1' She." About every five mlnuteB the gentleman would rise in his scat, beads of perspiration would stand on his brow, and it is perfectly certain that in his exoitement he , would have run his fingers through his hair HIS SECRET. !

Tho manufacture of cards for this purpose has now become a regular trade, and they aro frequently so olaborate and tasteful in design and so neat in execution that they will answer for occasions for which in formor soasons it was neoessary to prepare a full sat of cards to order. Another thing, they can bo obtained at a very reasonable price, and thus a considerable obstacle in the form of expense is overcome. They are not made by maohine or printing proocss, but the illustration which tho heavy cardboard bears is drawn by a skilful artist either in pen and ink, representing some humorous or comical portrait or scone, or in dolicato water-colors, representing a little landscape. No two of these are made alike now by the best manufacturers, for it is not difficult for a skilful artist to vary them indefinitely, but when they come into gen. eral use it is not improbable that very cheap assortments will be placed on the market, and, in ordor to make these, lithographing and printing will havo to be called into requisition. mm AROUND THE HOFFMAN HOUSE TICKER.

"And yet, as the world reckons, you might look higher; you will some day be an Earl: and though in my idea that fact does not make you so great a man as my father, yet some might think that you might do better than wed his daughter." "Thoy would be curious people who could think so," he said, with a half laugh. " Then may I hope, Honor?" "Hope is a birthright," the said, smiling too; "it is always one's, unless we make a bad exchange, and barter it for despair." " But wilfyou give me permission to hope?" ho asked. She hesitated a moment, then of her own accord she held out her hands to him. " Yes, hope," she said, softly, " but do not let your hopes run away with you.

Ono of tho Manhattan Athletlo Club's membors told The EviKrNO Would sporting-man tho othor night that tho Cherry Diamond Association intended giving indoor lawn, tennis championship meetings, with athletio games thrown in, this winter.

Wobld a week ago that the New Yorks will give a big indoor meeting in Madison Square Garden in November and a lawn-tennis tournament tho samo afternoon. Sporting men are just as bad as any other class in slicking to a locality even after they know there isn't much of a living in it. If some of the boxers and wrestlors who hang around the half-olosed Metropolitan resorts and hope for soft snaps of teaching or box. ing for purses would go to some of the out. of-town colleges or gymnasiums they could make money, get out of their irregular habits and come baok fit to train for a battle with men of their weight. The trouble with almost every sparrer is that he wants everybody to know he is a boxer. People in provincial cities don't fanoy taking lessons 'from teachers of that kind, but a capable, gentlemanly sparrer can earn lots of money, make hosts of friends and gain re. spect ; sparring in dives for $2.60anight will never pay him, if he hunts up teaching engagements, behaves like a gentleman and sticks to it. "W. G. George, tho best mile-runner ever seen," says London Land and Water of Oct. 18, "will bo married on Tuesday at Worcester to a sister of F.

Georgo will remain in England, re. siding at "East Moulsey until next summer, when he returns to America to settle permanently in New York.

" I will keep it to myself assuredly," the Earl answered ; "It is to my interests to keen it to myself, I am more than anxious that this man should be brought to justice." " My olue is horo 1" he said, with a calm triumph.

" That was found dropped down by the tounter in the bank, on the day that the forged eheok was presented," he said. " Bo far as has been in my power, I havo ascertained the namo of every fierson who either paid money in or drew t out upon that day, I have personally visited them all. I have shown them the look of hair, and if I am any judge of expression it belonged to none of them. Of course the culprit naturally would have said it did not belong to him hod I happened to come across him, but I would stake my personal reputation that I did not. What I bellevo I now have to find Is, towhom that lock of hair does belong, and that person lost probably their wife a ilttle before May IB." " It seems but a small olue," tho Earl said. " Out of small things great things grow." the detective said, wisely. " I havo made out to-day a list of those who have suffered through these frauds: the Earl of Wentlin is the largest sufferer by for, Max Selwyn tho smallest by far. Ho has been let off cheaply, indeed, which makes me think either that the forger has met him and associated with him as a friend, of course quite unknown to Mr. Selwyn, or else that he is a great admirer of his books. Anyway I should much like to meet this Mr. Selwyn: if my first surmise is correct he might be able to help us." " He might, but he would not," the Earl The detective turned to him eagerly.

THE OFFICERS NOT RESPONSIBLE. Means Adopted In Prevent Cheating Anions; Ships' Stowords. When a Government boat or merchantman comes to port, or goes into commission, a notice 1b inserted in the papers that the ward, room officers aro not responsible for bills which the steward may contract. This handicaps the steward if ho is disposed to pooket the money for provisions. A steward's pay on a man-of-war is SIS a month. The captain has his own steward and cook, and tho commissioned officers have theirs. The steward sallies forth at 5 o'clock every morning to got meat and vegetables for tho day. According to tho number in the ward room, he gets from $15 to 8(0 for paying the tills, and ho has to bring the receipts home with him. But he can bring home bogus receipts, ond pocket the moneyt leaving for parts unknown when he has accumulated three or four hundred dollars. So this notice is put in tho papers to block him off from dovious courses. Many of the servants on the Government vessels, are Japaneso. The steward of the Nipsio which went into commission lately, is a subject of tho Mikado. There is not the same opportunity in the sailors' rooms. Government contracts are drawn up, in which tho quantity and expendi. lure lor provisions l uu uuroeu uu iur u cor. tain period. So the buyer in this department doos not have to pay for tho stores when he gets them, and ho can work in no Irregular business with cash. A steward may nave been with a ship six or seven years and his honesty thoroughly proven, but tho notioe is inserted all the same in the papers. POLICEMEN'S FANCIES.

You can easily mention my great-grandfather, the Duke, and I will go my own way about getting what I can out of Mr. Selwyn. Please also caution tho Countess and your son and daughter." "Certainly I will do so if you think it neoessary," the Karl said, a little unwillingly. " But I should really be glad if vou would not trouble Mr, Selwyn about the matter.

One night a few woeks ago, when a violent storm provalled, thousands of birds were dashed in their flight against the statue. How many were blown over into the harbor after they had received their death-blow is not known, but in tho morning more than thirteen hundred dead bodies were found scattered all ovor the island, from tho balcony down, while the base of the pedestal was thickly strewn with victims. As may be imagined Col, Tassin, who is in command at Liberty Island, has been at some trouble to find out what to do with his nightly feathered manna. The question has been solved at last by putting the Statue ot Liberty under the some category as all the other light-houses along the coast, so far as making reports of all stranded birdB are concerned, and relieving tho Colonel of all responsibility to milliners and proprietors of fancy stores if he neglects to respond to their importunate notes for feathered supplies, for whiioh they ore not at all averso to paying a fair sum. " Well, what does become of the birds now, anv way ?" inquired a reporter of Col.Tassin. Thoy simply go the way of all birds that sacrifioe their lives to a morbid curiosity in this way, and find their way into the Smith-sonian Institution nt Washington. ThU has been done for not more than a month." "How is that?" " Because on tho evening that wo had that big slaughter bore about a month ago I, of course, heard about it, but when I came to look for the birds I oould not find one of them. Then it came to my knowledgo for tho first time that tho officials on the island were selling the skins of the birds to tnilll. ners in town as perquisites." " Did you not think this proper?" " Certainly not, becauso the birds wore publio property, and I determined to find out what tho oorrect method of disposition was. So I went to Washington and studied up on tho Government system of records such as is applied to tho Light-House Department, and after I had it well under way I introduced it on Liberty Island. It has now been in operation for nearly a month, and so far as I know works with great sue. cess, and has resulted in no bickeringB or ill-feeling over tho deprivation of this source of revenuo." " In what way is this record kept?" "It merely consists in registering each morning, in a book kept for the purposo. a description of every bird found under the statuo. This lnoludes. besides the description or name of the bird, the date, probable hour of striking, tho direction and force of the wind, number striking, number killed, character of the weather and general re. marks, whioh in the course of six months or so will mako a vary interesting record." " Of course the birds aro prepared boforo you send them away ?" " Certainly, they aro nut in proper condition by a skilful taxidermist, although they are not absolutely prepared for mounting. I never send a batch of birds anywhere until I get a lot, 200 or more. These I send to the Smithsonian and Washington National Museums and other scientific institutions in this State and in New England. Any institution is glad to get theso specimens to odd to its collection, and it is certainly better than pandering to a depraved whim of fashion by soiling them to milliners for bonnet decorations. And besides tho specimens themselves are often of such rarity that thoy may be regarded as genuine curiosities. The foot that they are appreciated is shown by the fact that I have received many letters both from Washington officers and the heads of scientiflo institutions thanking me for what I have already done in the matter." " How does the statuo rank in your experience as a blrd-killing light?" "From what I have seen during tho past conceived a liking for him and is unwilling to betray him." "And thinking this," tio Earl said, "you believe that you will be able to gqt the name of the forger out of him ?" Mr. Foster sat down, then looked at the Earl smilingly. " You must ask mo no more questions," In said. " I have told you already moro than under ordinary circumstances I tell. Wait atlently, I have not the slightest doubt but .at I shall unearth my fox." However, two or three days passod, and Mr. Foster, for from troubling himself about the case, seemed simply to enjoy himself. Honor and Arthur came to the Castle and were Introduced to him, and seemed to like him greatly ; but Max, having complained of feeling unwell for a day or two, had not nut in an appearance. However, on the detective's telling Honor that he wished above all things to make her father's acquaintance, she ?:ave the whole party at the Oastle an invito-ion to oome over upon the following day. "For my father is not so unwell that ho cannot receive visitors," she said." though he does not feel sufficiently strong just now to visit them ; and he will bo Sleaseq. 1 am sure, to welcome Mr. Foster. e has heard much of him from us." So upon the following day the whole party from the Castle drove up to tho Hollies ; Max, Honor and Arthur were standing at the door to welcome them with old-fashioned hospitality. May had grown older within tho last day or two, there were lines of care upon his face and around his lips, as though trouble was a visitor to his heart. Ho welcomed every one warmly, Mr. Foster, being a stranger, particularly so, but he gave him a quick, searching glance, perhaps ho guessed who and what he was. The older folks went into tho houso, tho younger stood chatting in the garden. Tho same thought being In all their minds, as they asked unimportant questions and mado unimportant remarks; that wit-h being that two would separate from tho othor two and leave them alone. " There are some roses I want to show you at the far end of the garden, Mary," Arthur said, at last, flashing a " come, if yon dare " glance at Honor' ,r Will you come ?" " Gladly." she answered, looking up at I him. "will you not come, too, Honor?" " Honor bis seen them," Arthur putto, month I should say that it was a moro destructive light in this rospoot than any other light in the country. Certainly last month's rocord has been unusually heavy. It is often eusy to toll beforehand wnat sort of a orop of birds may be expected the next morm-iug by observing tho character of the weather. If ths atmosphere U thick and muggy or it is very dark you can always ox. pect a pretty large sprinKing, but on clear, bright nights the number of unfortunates is comparatively small. Just at this season of the year also we are moro apt to gather full crops than nt any other season, because tho birds are now migrating. Many of them travel in the night. Homo of them always do, and it is tho blinding glnre of the eleo-trlo lamps that bewilders The birds as they pass by and causes them to swervo against tho torch or head of Liberty ln their flight. However, there are occasions when no rules seem to work, and there has been known to bo a great slaughter on a bright night if a big migrating flock happens to pass over tho island in the night.'' " Is thero any uniformity in tho species of those birds?" "Yes, to a lareo extent. Almost all the birds wo pick up belong to three or four different kinds. The commonest species which wo find is n bird which resombles a wren. I haven't yet ascertained the scientific name, and I only Bay it looks like a wren becauso I am pretty certain it is not one. However, I will be able to satisfy your curiosity beforo long. Then thero is the rail, which is oo-casionally slaughtered in largo numbers ; the cat-bird, blackbird, and several kinds of night-birds, including tho whlppoorwills." HOMES OF PROMINENT STACE FOLK.

"Spoons?" she repeated, interrogatively. " Well, sweethearts," ho said. " Can't yon see that they like each otbori that Bruce is as fond of Honor as I am of you ?" She did not answer, and they walked on ln silence. Arthur scarcely knew how to go on: to do him Justice, and to his credit be it spoken, bo had never Bono in " for flirtations, and now that he loved a woman and wished to tell her so, he scarcely knew what to say. " You have not yet shown mo tho roses," Mary said, when they reached the end of the garden. "There are no roses to show yon in par. ticular," he said, fretfully. "I do wish; Mary, you would not be quite so practical; did not you know that was only on excuse to get you away from the others?" "No." " It was, then; I wanted to have you to myself, not to stand talking nonsense there." There was another silence and a long one. whioh, shy girl as sho was, commended itself to Mary not at all. " Do you not think," she said, turning her head resolutely from Arthur."

"Mary, my darling," he whispered, "do you love me?" Shoauswored nothing, but the smile that stole over her face showed that she was not angry ; perhaps she deemed it but right that he should first declare his love for her then and there, only she could not prudently answer his question. Perchance he guessed what her thoughts might be, for leaving co of her hands ho flung his arms around her. "Say yes, little dear," he soldi "I love you so very muoh, Mary."
