HAMLET AND OEDIPE. AS PORTRAYED BY THE GREAT FRENCH COMEDIAN. Ferhnpi Hl« Rendition of llamlet Han Not Been Excelled by Any Other Actol —HI, Triumph In America—Two Character Portrait,. INCE MOUNET- Sully determined to cross the Atlantic, and the newhpa- pers of this country bcg-an to tell their readers ubout his long 1 career as prin- pal actor in tragedy and romance in the foremost theater of the modern world, much stress lias been laid in tins newspapers, and consequently in tho public mind, upon his portrayal of Ha,mlet This is natural, but it is unfair to the famous French actor either to expect that his idea of Shakespeare's prince shall conform with our own ideas, whether these are founded directly upon our knowledge of Shakespeare (which, as Shakespeare is universal, and has a, separate messag-e for every reader, may not be better, after all, than French ideas), or upon our glowing memories of the profoundly beautiful llamlet of Edwin I!ooth. or ,o nejrlect Ills performances in the rag-ic and romantic plays of the rcpu- ar l-'rench repertory, for the salio of •rounding- our estimate of his talent wholly upon his acting- in the French translation of Hamlet made by Alcx- ,nder Dumas and 1'aul Meurice. If vc wish to derive a fair idea, as un- >rejudiced as our environment will jcnnit, of the art of this Frenchman, ve must sit patiently through all the representations he will pUe in Amerca, accu stoming ourselves once more ,o the conventions of the 1'Ycnch )ootic drama, which arc all so strange ,o us, and using- our imagination a, ittle to make np for the iuevitabla Tendencies in his surroundings—for ic has not broug-ht the Comedie Francaise with him. There are six plays sesidos llamlet,namely, "Hernani" and 'Buy Bias," by Victor Hugo; "Le Cid," by Corneille; "(Edioe Roi," from Sophocles, by Jules Lacroix, with music by Edmond Membroe; the "Antig-one" at Sophocles, rendered into French by tfeurico and Vacfjuerie, with music by Saint-Saens, and "Audromaque," by Racine, and surely the Hernani, Ruy Bias, Koderigue, (Kdipe, Creon and Oreste of Mounet-Sully must in fairness be put in tho balance with his 3amlet when we come to weigh by cur own standard, and solely for our own satisfaction, the worth of tho actor. One thing we know certainly in favor of his Hamlet. It has greatly increased tho popular understanding of Shakespeare in Franco. His portrayal is accepted with acclaim by the two foremost dramatic critics of Paris, Sarcoy and Lemnitre, men far apart in habits of thought, and alike only in the important fact that they are both Parisians. Lemaitro, indeed, is a man who qualifies all pmse—and his praise of Mounot-Sully is loudly sung—by clear, minute analysis. He understands the objections tho English- speaking- folks may have to this Hamlet, which suggests to him the "study" of the Dane in' -\Vilhel m Meister" -"incomplete but clear." From Mounet- Sully himself, in his newspaper "interviews," the idea is obtained that his Hamlet is not at all complex. He regards Hamlet as the type of "the son. His love for his father is his dominant trait Ho is never mad for a moment. This idea will certainly not bo generally accepted here, however much we may admire the execution of the conception. We Have not been accustomed to regard Hamlet i<ps a man of one dominating trait, or as n. restricted "type." Mounet-Sully is not a young man. He was born Feb. T,, .ISII. in the Dor- do^ne, and his family .-ire of Navarrean, and Hiiffiienot origin. The family name is Mounet, and he was christened Sully after the famous minister of Henry IV. He did not begin his studies at the Paris conservatoire till ho was SI, because of the opposition of his parents to a llioii trical carecr.and he took the first prize for tragedy in 1808. He first appeared at the Odeon, but he left the stage when tho war with Germany began, and served until Franco was at peace again as an officer of tho garde mobile. When at length ho re- eloquence and ins tragic jorceare wen illustrated. The setting of the play ts n ot remarkably firm, and it does not conform with our ideas of Greek tragedy. It is, in fact, neither Greek not modern. A temple faces a palace, Bnd at the back there is a stretch of open country, groves and fields, upon which is reflected tho changing lights of the last day of the reign of 0£dipus, from dawn to night The chorus is largely composed of women. The instrumental music is unobtrusive and satisfying. Tim (Edipus is a majestic figure. Those persons who were not touched by the actor in romance fell easily under his spell in tragedy, says Harper's Weekly. In his declamation of the rhyming- hexameters into which Lacroix has rendered the Greek verse he now thundered with wrath, and now moved the audience to pity. In '•Tho Cid," that revered classic of the French stage, he was not nearly so interesting to crude westerners, though the beauty of his elocution in the long passage describing his conquest of the vtalffjiu MOUNET-SULl.Y A8 HAMLET, turned to the stage'his progress was rapid, and early in the eighties he appeared on the stage of the Theater Francais as Oreste in "Andromaque. He now has a short leave of absence from his post at the head of the French theater, and, after a tour ol the European continent, came to this country. As CEdipiw, his wonderful plastic grace, the infinite variety vt hit potes »nd ferturei, nta splendid JIOUKET-Sm.LV AS CKI'IPE. Moors could not fail to be appreciated. Tho charge of frequent over-emphasis in his speech broug-ht against Mounet- Sully in England last summer has not been sustained by those who have soon the performances he has thus far given in America. THE DIAMOND. The Western League teams are showing up remarkably well in their exhibition games. Manager Ward is now sorry he didn't take the players south, as he at first intended doing 1 . John Griffin, the light-weight pugilist, has applied for a position on the New England umpire staff. Van Haltren may do some pitching this year. Ward thinks Van would do well at the new distance. Chippewa Falls, Wis., is to have a strong-, independent team, under the management of Jesse Sharpe. Baseball men say that Kusio is falling off in effective'work and will keep Capt. Ward guessing this year. Roger Connor is working hardei than he has in years, and the result is showing in his playing and batting-. All the League teams are down to work now, and the managers of them think them better than ever. THE KENNEL. The prize-winning bulldog, the Graven Image, has changed ownership, Woodlawn Park kennels being the purchaser. The Philadelphia doc show proved to be another successful canine event. Nearly :'>00 dogs were benched, St Bernards," setters and pointers being the leading classes. The Specialty Clubdogshow, which is to be. held in Madison Square Garden, May 1 t° 4. promises to be a pronounced success. It is understood that the revision of the standard of tho Hasten terrier will include no very important changes; his points, however, will very properly be explained and the value apportioned more equitably than at present Any- thin" like a radical change would, ol course, be absurd, for tlio simple reason that if the type of the dog is not fixed by this time further changes in the standard would certainly not hasten that desirable result ATHLETIC POINTERS. The annual spring- games of the College of tho City of New York will be held on May 4, at Manhattan iield. The events will be all handicaps. "Strangler" Evan Lewis is dying from consumption, and fully realizes that ho has not Ions to live. The great wrestler is said to only have one lung. The Boston Athletic dob is soon to have a suburban club house, with boat house attached, on the banks of the Charles river, in the town of Weston. Tho estimated coat of tne new club house is S-! 0,000. Robert Rcakus of Eidgeway and Thomas Doyle of Philad«l phi a wrestled at Bradford, Pa., catch-as-catch-can, no hold barred, fora purse of SiOO. Reakes won easily in two straight falls, the first in thirty-six minutes and the second in seven minutes. THE WHEEL. California boasts of a racer whose pet name is "Big Legs Wells." . At the meet of the Scranton club oi July 4 prizes of diamonds to the value of $2,000 will be offered. Speed is the graveyard of amateur- iam and record to the tombstone that marks the grave of tho dead. In the past five years W. F. Murphy has ridden in 529 races •« h-wpii 234 flrst, 88 second and 70 third prtaw. THE SEMINOUES. A Race of Indlnnn That Remain* Rcxpec- ttitlle and ladultrloui. Unquestionably the Seininole is a very decent Indian—save when he has been drinking "cider with a little Jamaica ginger in it"—(a trader told me that was the formula)—and their squaws are models of womanly virtue and industry. That the race remains pure, notwithstanding the inroads of "civilization," is due to the severity of the punishment of those of either sex who are guilty of a brcacli of the law, for chastity is prescribed by their religion, and the penalty is death. In late years they arc pushing-deeper into tlie g-lndes, ns the footsteps of the white man encroach upon theirdomain. They live upon game, fruits and the products of their agriculture, though many wants must be supplied at the trading-posts or stores in the settlements, with money or through barter. : For many years the trade in alligator skins and the plumage of birds has been a great source o£ revenue to them, but the alligators are almost exterminated, and the bird laws are now so itrietly enforced tliat the trader no longer dares to buy their plumes and wings, at least in paying quantity. They still bring in game and turtles, and a,'few alligatot 1 blcins, or moccasins and other rude manufactures, but every year it grows harder and harder for them to get money: and, as if to ailil insult to injury, some of their most furtile koys have recently beon homesteaded by white men, after the Indians had tilled the soil for years. The women arc dressed neatly—I was tolii that many own sowing machines—and they siimv a degree of taste in the fashioning of their garments. Although a Seininole nf cither sex has little love for a camera, Mrs. Dodge was able to secure nearly a dozen fine negatives, chiefly of Indian women. Cor»«i I-ui-insi If a corset is laeed every time it is put on it will give the best satisfaction. The corset must adapt itself to the waist for lit and form. The house dresses are always looser than any othe , and corresponding- ease in the corset is conducive to comfort and appearance. When the trim street suit or the smart evening dress is put on it is the work of a moment to draw laces tight at the belt, and loose top and bottom for a small waist, full hips and fuller bust, and tie them in front with the knot under the skirt hook. This is the way the French demoiselles get their exquisite figure.— St. Louis Republic. —In the heart of London is a public news-room without a librarian or anyone to look after the papers.
