Blackfoot News (Newspaper) - November 2, 1895, Blackfoot, IdahoA daughter of Ford. She naturally drifted into thespian realms. Indomitable will and a hereditary love of the stage count for anything this gracious and Lovely Young woman will prove herself a favorite with the patrons of the stage. To flan a reporter or her Rise to Fame when a school girl she Wai too shy to recite her piece nov Guach inf Ladr iss Martha Ford the new leading lady owns a name which is w e 11 known throughout the theatrical world her father John t. Ford who died eighteen months ago was at heart an actor though he never reached the stage in closer personal relationship than that of manager and playwright. His love of the stage and stage people seems to have been born in him and therefore it is but natural that his Bronze haired daughter should choose her life s profession amid the people with whom her father was so closely associated. Dearly As miss Ford loves her Art. It is of her father that she likes to talk most. The Blue Gray eyes with their Long lashes and pathetic expression grow Luminous when she relates incidents of her father s childhood. A father you known was a self made Man a she says with Pride. A when he was a very Little boy he kept a news stand opposite the Richmond then the most popular theater in the South. Among the literature for Sale were play books and when the actors came across the Way to buy one of these he would present them with a copy and in this Way became very Friendly with Many who afterwards became or were at that time leading lights in the profession. I could talk for hours about the Way his first play was accepted by Kunkels nightingales a How he staged and managed it and How be afterwards became identified with theatrical interests in Baltimore both at Holliday a and the opera House that bears his Quot but How about your own career Quot was ventured mildly for it seemed a pity to interrupt this Sweet faced daughter in her Eulogy of a much loved father. A there is nothing remarkable about it Quot was the modest reply. A i have been on the stage for years making Roy debut with miss Marlowe in Baltimore in a As you like it it was just after miss Marlowe s illness and she received a great ovation which i shared simply because it was my first appearance and in my fathers theater. The people in the company were very Lovely to me and i received so Many Flowers and charming gifts that i was Here miss Ford showed a Superb Little watch engraved with the Date of her first appearance which was among the a charming gifts Quot received on that occasion. Miss Ford to talk with is unusually interesting though there is a Little Trace of shyness which seems incongruous with her chosen profession. A i am horribly she admitted when this peculiarity was mentioned a and my going on the stage amazes me As much As it did my family. There Are ten of us living and of that number l am the Only outcast the others never leaving Home and Mother. I am the prodigal and of my Sisters and Brothers the one least expected to take up a Public career. A when i was a girl at school 1 was positively afraid of my own voice and when i would get up to recite it would be with downcast eyes and trembling voice. One commencement i selected Poe s to Helena and was to practice in the Chapel with an audience at the Back of girls who had congregated to ridicule my efforts. Whether 1 became imbued at that time with some miss Martha Ford celestial fire i know not but at any rate i recited that poem in a very different fashion from the Way i recited my lessons and my elocution teacher was quite indignant because i had Given no evidence of any Talent in this direction before. Later i recited once in my father s theater and after that you have kept me off the stage no matter How hard you had a you have played leads before have you not Quot a yes with Crest a Clarke and with Wilfred Clarke last year i was with or. Dasy. But i feel that a Stock company As i am la now is the Best school in the Quot Are you better pleased with the emotional roles or those More humorous in character Quot a i Don t think i have Ever played in the latter for even though 1 have had some spiteful Little parts there Are a few lines somewhere that i could make sympathetic so that they would t think that i was altogether miss Ford As she said this impressed her hearer with the idea that she could make even Quot ugly things 1 sound Sweet and Lovely and surely if notes of the stage.

Bellew is author of a Yvonne a a a Lolander Quot and a hero and Leander a besides Many adaptations. He majority of americans were greatly surprised the other morning to read that the International chess championship had been won by Quot pills Bury the they would have been surprised had the championship been won even by Steinitz a the american Quot notwithstanding the naturalized Bohemian was regarded As by All Odds the Best of the representatives from this Side but to hear of a comparative unknown taking the Honor was a Surprise pleasing to National Pride and arousing interest even in those who care Little for the intricacies of chess. Pillsbury is the Only native american to beat the world at this game since wonderful Paul Morphy won the Honor in 1s58 and aroused the wonder of almost All the world by his Briliant playing. Time after time since Morphy retired and became insane the Honor has gone among the More numerous class of players in the old world. Tar Rasch the German had taken first place four times in succession when Pillsbury stepped into the Honor. Thus the opinion had grown that America did not class with other countries in the Quality of her chess players. Mite Morphy Pillsbury has won his spurs while yet a boy. He is Only 22 years of age. Morphy was 21 when he Defeated Lowenthal for the worlds championship. Of course the Competition at that time was hardly so Strong As that encountered by Pillsbury the Success of the latter appears to have been favourably received in England. The London times says of the con cons 1 ion of the tournament a Pillsbury s Victory was a scene Long to be remembered. He was warmly congratulated by Tarrasch Steinitz and others. His play was marked by depth As Well As brilliancy. He appears to be a fitting successor to Morphy in More than one Pillsbury won fifteen out of Twenty one games. He lost to Tseh Gorin Schlechter and Lasker and Drew with Marco Wal Brody and Blackburn. Draws count half a game hence his score of 16%. Schlechter the austrian. Got the special prize for making the Best score against the seven prise winners. By getting first place pills Btry won �150 and some special prizes. Harry n. Pillsbury was born in Massachusetts on dec. 5, 1872. He Learned chess at 16, and soon showed remarkable proficiency at the game. In a Short time he was the equal of the Best players in Boston. He began it laying Blindfold at 18. And soon gave exhibitions of eight simultaneous games without sight of Board and men. His first contest against a player of International note was when he met Steinitz in Boston in 1892, in a series of two games out of three. The Champion conceded Young Pillsbury Pawn and move and was beaten. Pillsbury a work attracted the attention of chess experts at new York and he was induced to make that place his Home beginning with the Spring of 1893. During that year an attempt was made to get up an International tournament it being thought most of the great players would be glad to come to America during the worlds fair. The Effort did not succeed very Well but a Torna Baron Alphonse de Rothschild something of a gunner. Baron Alphonse de Rothschild against whom a recent attempt at assassination was directed is the third son of the late Baron James de Rothschild and is the head of the French Branch of the family. He is the chief financier of the family and the director of its dealings with the markets of Europe. He is described As an indefatigable worker up earlier than most of his clerks and one of the first to enter the office. He takes his lunch in the Bank and never leaves it till the doors Are closed. He possesses an intellect at once Cool and Luminous he sees a situation at a glance and All the advantages that can be derived from it. He has not Only the temperament of a financier but the science of finance. In Paris he is fond of walking about the streets and he May be seen on foot not Only when he leaves the Bank but after dinner or after leaving a party. Shooting forms one of the great banker s chief distractions at Ferriere his favorite residence. While engaged in this sport in december 1892, the Baron was wounded by a glancing shot which entered the right Eye near the Corner and some months later the Eye had to be removed. Baron Alphonse does not care for show and no parser by is attracted by the splendor of his equipage. In the country he Hunts and shoots More for the Sake of his health than for any passion for the Chase. His wife who is an English woman and a Beauty is a More ardent Follower of sport than he is. Charles f. Cochlan. Fine of the lending adorn on the american st Raj be. Or. Coghlan is a. Leading actor and dramatist of ability and was born in Charles f. Coghlan. London 1n 1848. His father was a Clergyman and he. Himself was Lral Ned for the bar which he abandoned for the stage. He played at several London Heaters and became a leading Man in the famous company of the Prince of Wales theater. In 1880 he came to the United states and soon earned reputation for his Fine ability and his Captain absolute in a the rivals Quot played to John Gilbert s sir Anthony absolute was recognized As a finished production. He is the author of a a Jocelyn and a lady which he wrote for his sister. Rose Coghlan during the past season he and his sister have carried on a successful tour starring in Sar Riouz a comedy Harry n. Pillsbury International chess Champion ment known As the a Impromptu International was arranged. It Drew the second class players Only from abroad. In this tournament Pillsbury gained Only seventh place. A few months later however he took first prize in a smaller tournament containing the Best american players. This year he was sent to Hastings As the representative of the Brooklyn chess club. In 1889 he joined the old Deschapelles club of Boston. This was a rival organization to the Boston chess club which was More than half a Century old. In 1892 Pillsbury went on a professional tour to the Franklin chess club at Philadelphia and Defeated All opponents. Losing but one game. At the invitation of the Boston press club he gave an exhibition of blindfolded play contesting eight games simultaneous-1y, of which he won seven and lost one. This feat ranks him among the masters of that Branch of chess play. Pillsbury then moved to new York City and became the proprietor of the chess automaton of the Eden Musee. Pillsbury is the Only one of the line of Boston the proposed series of races for the championship of the american turf is further off now than Ever. An Effort was made to arrange three races hut the owners failed to agree and it now looks As if the races were off for Good and All. The Only Man that has shown no fear and done All in his Power to arrange the series is August Belmont he positively declines to make a match at a distance less than a mile and a Furlong. The other owners want to go into a series of sprint races. As the matter now stands Henry of a Navarre is undoubtedly the King at a distance of a mile and a Furlong and Over. At All distances of a mile and less Domino is undoubtedly the Champion. Clifford and revel Santa Anita Good As they Are at times cannot Lay claim to championship honors. Meantime the cracks will go on dodging each other the rest of the season. The fabulous prices being paid for harness Speed would not seem to indicate that there is any immediate danger of the Trotter sinking into a state of Quot innocuous Des etude a says an Exchange. In the face of Adverse circumstances Fleetwood presents a wonderful front so far. Three meetings have been held thus far and no losses and this without the usual Pool privileges. The last meeting netted handsomely but the expenses of the season have been very heavy. It will Cost More than 875,000 to run Fleetwood this year including purses. Still everybody is Happy. The scorcher. Adown the Street his whirling feet propelled him like the wind his nose was on his handle bar he struck a four ton trolley car and to his funeral from afar the people came and grinned. Kyrle Bellew. To be taken into account. Racing is a hard business when Carrier on through a great length of time and the great distance that has to be covered in giving meets even with the great Railroad system and the comfortable travelling enjoyed in this country. Thus it is that a vast territory has hitherto been it off the list owing to a Lack of time California has come to be recognized As one of the Best sections of America for the bicycle business. The racing men from the coast have broadened out until that Section is now and has been for a year represented in National circuit races by men of High Caliper and far different from the men of old when the records of the coast were Many seconds slower than the records of the world held by Eastern riders. Waller startled the world when he Tom Cooper lowered the Twenty four hour record of the world. He did it on the coast and the Eastern people came to realize that there was growing Over across the Rockies a class of riders that would be a Factor in the sport of cycling. Then Ziegler came to Denver and the results at the time were sad to relate. Ziegler wiped the ground up to use a Slang phrase with the Eastern men. At the time there was some soreness a great Deal in fact and the Western men returned Home with the malediction of the easterners in their ears. Notes of the wheel. Denver is a record breaker tor races meets and hospitality. Ziegler mourns that he with not be Able to race in the East. Manhattan Bab added pyrotechnics to its racing meets and does better. Cabanne mourns most that he could not win a first at his Home in st. Louis. The opening of the theatrical season is being Felt on electric Light rar ing. The l. A. W. Racing Board came out on top in the st. Louis sunday racing matter. Hissing judges for conscientious decisions is a thoughtless but injurious practice of spectators. Local lights whose sphere is limited have plenty to do at county fairs in september and october. Canada gave the racers from the states a hospitable reception and there was a Good time generally. As a result of business racing the racing men Are appealing to the courts where the referees decision must give Way to the judges. L. C. Johnson of Cleveland collided with Ray Macdonald while training at Hampden Park september 1. Johnson a wheel was demolished and be himself suffered a fracture of the Collar Bone. Quaint description of i Turing a party of ladies and gentlemen who elsewhere pass for intelligent beings assemble at the Ball room. Soon they array themselves in opposing lines. Presently a Young lady jumps up from the floor shakes one foot and comes Down again. Again she Springs up and the other foot quivers. Then she turns round in her place Springs up and shakes both her feet. Her intelligent partner opposite performs the same operations. Then both Rush Forward and seize each other s hands jump up again then shake their feet and stand still. The next lady and gentleman very rationally and soberly follow the example just set them shaking and turning and so on to the end. They know Sousa in Japan too.
