HE PL AY GO Ell who is not particularly old can easily remember the time when the "decline of the lira ma" used to be a favorite theme with those who wished to decry the then ter. The drnma was dull, it was in the doldrums; the stage, so those writers argued, was never in a more deplorable condition. There was, it must be confessed, much truth in the arguments set forth as to the causes of this deplorable state of affairs. Hut that question need not now be discussed, By and by, however, the poor old drama took an upward step in general estimation until it became a more important factor in public life than it had ever been in all its history—doleful and otherwise. The theater is an institution whieh is bound to excite controversy until the end of time. The storm rages furiously now and again, and in the past the theater lias benefited by these attacks. I.'nfor- tunately. it is not alone those who are opposed to the stage who an: its worst enemies. "Save me from my friends," The theater can stand against its enemies, but its worst foes are those who use the playhouse as a means for propagating thnirowii fad.s. It has been menaced of late by a set of people who would plunge us all into gloom, show us nothing but sadness, picture for us nothing but scenes of darkness and despair. They have had theories to propound, though they have seldom arrived at a conclusion in regard to them. They have presented plays more resembling the product of the dissecting room than that of the drama. They have dwelt in the horrible, reveled in misery, rejoiced in the exploitation of pain. Fortunstely, they have had their day, for the voice of the people can never be drowned. That voice is in favor of the brighter and better side of things, and, almost unconsciously, it has made itself felt. London and New York have recently proved conclusively that the public demand is for that which is healthy. That which is morbid will not be tolerated. Give the people strong plays, if you will, but give them healthy ones. The public taste, as shown by the playgoers of New York in the season of '93-",M, redounds to the credit of the community. The best plays have been _..8CXKK »BOM "SOWING THK WIND." the roost successful. They have triumphed where others have failed. It h»s not always be'en'io, for many a bad play has succeeded-1)eyond all.ex- pectation and inflnit«ly_beyond it« deserts. Lotus take, for instance, the Empire and Lyceum theaters, houses {where the managers aim at presenting good work, and where something like" th« stock system of old is, happily, in vogue. At the former theater, the hits of the season were made by "Liberty Hall" and "Sowing the Wind." Mr. Carton's play is not a powerful one, but it is exceedingly pretty, touched with gentle humor, and containing a fine vein of pathos. It pleased the public for many weeks. That result, I may remark parenthetically, was not due to the play entirely, for 'Liberty Hall" depends largely for its success in its interpretation. Fortunately, it was charmingly rendered by Mr. Henry^ Miller and his companions. Wind" has become an 'Sowing the established favorite. It "caught on," to use the theatrical phrase, from the first, and it will see the season out to full houses. It is a good play, a strongly and beautifully written play, and is admirably presented in every, respect. It discusses a delicate subject, firmly Tto-Mou--li purely a Vegetable Compoud, especially adapted to cure all dUea?en of the Blood and St>cr«tory S«etcm, such ASTHM.t.

Pitw, {l.^Mr ffSntttouftPBl JlODCUBB COMPANY, KOKOM^tlwTB.". I aud gracefully, but it is never mot-bin. ' It elevates, it docs not depress. Mr. .' Charles Froliman found another suc- ! cess, although not nearly so great a ! one as either—in "The Councilor's Wife," n play by no means of the first order, but lififllt and amusing for all that. On the other hand, the gloomy and over-sentimental "Younger Sou" failed on its first night and was wisely withdrawn in a week. Almost tl'e same story is to be told of the Lyceum. "Sheridan," thanks, in a large measure, to the popularity of Mr. Sothern and the manager's setting of the piece, had a long and satis- faeiory run. But, with the return of the other Lyceum favorites, the situation was reversed. "Our Country Cousins" and "An American Duchess" did not bring a fortune to Mr. Daniel Frohman. With "The Amazons," however, he has secured a success which will recoup him fully for his prevlons .losses, Mr. Pinero's play is clever, it moves to laughter, it has no harm in it, and it is capitally acted. Here, again, the judgment of the public sets the seal of approval on that whieh is distinctly yood. A success which is also to be noticed is "Charley's Aunt," which has tlraivn large audiences to the Standard theater for months, and is likely to run to good business until summer comes. Mr. Thomas' play is a farce, pure and simple, unpretentious, but highly amusing and thoroughly well -acted. At a fourth theater, Palmer's, "The Huttertlies" has made u hit because it is bright and enjoyable and well played. It is a. feather in his cup for the author, Mr. Carleton. The best proof of the value of Uie public judgment lies in the result of the season at the lOmpire and KHOM "SOWING THK WIXD." Lyceum, where the stock companies do sound work. "Charley's Aunt" and "The Butterflies" strengthen the case. In London the Independent theater, which indulged for so long in the morbid drama of various "masters," otherwise unknown to the stage, has caved in. It has discovered that the people do not -want dramas of darkness, and for its last performance announced a comedy. This is reversing its policy with a vengeance. In future', it is assumed, the Independent theater will bo a little less gloomy than heretofore, (.live the public that which is clean, that which is wholesome, and they will come to the theater. Give them that which is morbid, and they will leave it alone in disgust Above all, let them laugh nosv and then. That there is a public in New York for plays which draw tears rather than smiles is shown by the success of •'Sowing the Wind." But the tears are honest ones, for they spring from the heart, and are not due to mere sen* timentality. This is a work-a-day world and the dullness of life must bo dissipated by a little genuine mirth. Hence the favor showered on the three other pieces instanced by me. Let trie managers give the public that which is clean, honest, wholesome, and there willTja no more talk of hard times: AnS— let" the people laugh. Let the laughter be the reward of comedy or of farce, but, whatever the play.-let it be cleanly,, let" it be free from vulgarity. Let' the people laugh,' but let them laugh weil AUSTIN BBEKETON. MMC.

Among the famous vocalists who received instructions from this noted teacher are Melba, Calve, Nevada, Barnes, Gerster, DJ Murska, Tremelli and others. Mme. Marches!, who is a German by birth, was herself, a great mezzo-soprano and made several successful operatic tours in Europe. Her pretty house in the Rue Jouffroy is well known in all artistic circles, and her salon is f requ ented not only by all the leading composers- and musicians of the day, whether residents in Paris or visitors from other countries, but by the best known in various walks of life. Madftmo gives very few private lessons, her instruction being almost entirely given in classes. On lesson day* she has the assistance of two admirable professors, M.

The inhuman and careless manner that railroads are allowed to handle and knock about valuable horses in shipping is at times nothing short of criminal.

He !• Onn of the St*r« <>( the Cincinnati llimehBll Club. Thos. W. 1'arrott, oue of the pitches of the Cincinnati club, was born April 10, 1803, at East Portland, Ore., and it was on the open lots around his native place that he learned to play ball. He seemed to take to ball playing as naturally as a duck takes to water, and showed an aptitude for tlie'gamo from the very start. Always beinfr a good, hard thrower he soon began to study the art of curving the ball, :u "-l ' 1/ ^ vils notj ' on £ before he developed into nuitc a. clever manipulator of the sphere.

Parrott's professional career began in 1800, when he accepted an engagement with the Portland club, or the Pacific Northwest league, he taking part that year in fifty-eight championship contests, in forty of which he filled the pitcher's position, and the other eighteen he played in the outfield, ranking well up in both the official batting and fielding averages of that organization. He took part as a pitcher in more games that season than any other pitcher in the Pacific Northwest League. His excellent all around work led to his re- engagement with the Portland Club for the season of 18SU, with which club he began that season, but finished it with the gaeramento team, of the California I'llOS.
