Sam Small's Daughter An Actress. The daughter of Rev. Sam Small, tho well knonw revivalist, has chosen tho stage for a profession, and if a romantic career, coupled with a piquant and charming personality can win success Lola Small-Jackson-Ford should find few obstacles in the road to fame. Miss Small has been especially engaged to play the part of Virginia Pryde in Hoyt's "A Stranger in New York." The character is that of a Richmond, Va., belle who enjoys a good time, is a real good "fellow," who plans all the escapades and can sing a song or tell a story if called upon. But Virginia Pryde is supposed to be a very innocent young lady, one of Richmond's "strictest set." ( She goes to New York and the people with whom she Is visiting are going to the French Ball, and they are wondering w-iat sort of a costume she will wear, they Imagine it will be something very conventional, but she sprlags a surprise upon them by appearing in tights. Though only twenty-four years old, Miss Small has had an unusual experience matrlmonally. She was reared In Atlanta, and married there the son of Major R. C. Jackson.a very wealthy man. She secured a divorce that her husband was dissipated. Very soon afterward sho married Stewart Ford, of Lexington, Ky but this alliance was not happy.

In Government Circles in Paris tho Disposition Seems to He to Resist Great Britain's Demands. Every English War Vessel Ordered to Hive 'its Cretv Made Up to tho Full Olllccrs on Leavo of Absence to Hold Themselves In Kcadlno4. Paris. Oct. 22. A remarkable change has come over French opinion on the Fashoda question during the last 4S hours. The attitude of the nubl c is more inflamed and more defiant. This is partly due to the tone of the British press, but more to tho threatening speech of the British chancellor of the exchequer, Sir Michael Hicks Beach, which the Autorite calls "A provocation that is almost a threat of war." The municipal council of Paris is accused on all sides of exhorting the government to avert war. In government circles tho disposition seems to be to resist the British demands. It is reported that the policy of France, as definitely stated to Great Britain, includes the rott-ntion of Fashoda. Rumors that the foreign minister, Count Muravioff, has assured M. Dal Casscc, tho French foreign minister, of Russia's support in the controversy, tend to stiffen tho backs of the higher officials, although these continue to maintain a conciliatory tone and declare that France is prepared to carry amiability to the utmost limits consistent with her rights and dignity. St. Petersburg, Cct 22. Comment, ing on the recent speech of the British chancellor of the exchequer, Sir Michael Hicks-Beach, the Novoj Vre-mya charges the chancellor with making a violent attack upon the French govemmont and says that ho failed to bear in mind that Fraucc has, in Russia, "an ally resolved to support her in the Fashoda question, in view of the fujl solidarity of their interests." London, Oct 22. The British Ad miralty has ordered every sea'going warship to have its crew made up to tho full complement as ordered In case of mobilization.

Four torpedo boat destroyers, which were about to be fitted with new water tube boilers, have had their orders countermanded and have been instructed to reduce their stores. Officers on leave of absence or unemployed have been notified to hold themselves in readiness to commission the reserve ships if required. Paris, Oct. 22. M. De Blowitz, the Paris correspondent of the London Times, in a letter on the I'ashoda situation to the Matin, explains the intense feeling in the matter of reconquering the Soudan as based upon the English thirst to avenge Gordon. "Maj. Marchand's presence in the midst of their exultation," he says, "is like a cut with a horsewhip. England does not aim to mortify Marchand, but she resents an oblique blow aimed at a campaign whleh has been openly conducted. France is ready to march at the drum call, but I am convinced that the call will not sound. What is Fashoda to France, compared with its value to England? In case of war, we should bo fighting to keep Marchand in Fashoda when in truth he had already departed' The Temps has created iuterest by its telegram from Nantes, saying the four battalions of the Infantry regiments comprising tho 2tst division, with headquarters at Nantes, have completed their war equipment. Extra rounds of ammunition have been issued to men and ollicers alike. Everything portends rapid moving. In Paris excitement rurs high and the public voice is all for war.
