A Othello is tho most difficult the most profound and the most Magai i Cen t. Character it in the world s drama a writes a prominent i Amatuc or tic. A a to prove that my opinion is accurate i have Only to refer to the fact that there have been so few adequate Othello a in the history of the. Nineteenth Century theater. Quot there have been charming Romeos Brilliant Lagos irresistible surfaces and sonorous an Thordys but where Are a the moors of. Venice. A Edwin Booth essayed the role but he was vastly my re artistic m Lago. John a Mccullough a ripened unchallenged Art failed to fulfil every detail of Othello. The last Grea Othello wus Gustavus Adolphus Brooke whose performance i shall never forget Quot Othello demands every attribute of theatric Art Othello during the tragedy runs the Gamut of emotions not the emotions of the average ii Ormal Man but those on exotic and foreign temperament is necessary to portray. Othello is not an appealing figure to an audience. He is a Blacutt Man who married a caucasian and therein there to the necessity of Luminati the Moor with a romantic glow. A a the jealousy of must to depleted with so much vigor and Aln Cerly that his ultimate. Murder of Desdemona 1b. Justifiable. When the pall of jealousy hovers Over Othello it is his time to win or Loso because tho spectators Are unwilling to see the a. Fragile and innocent hero no smothered beneath her Pillow. A / Quot frequently the star1 artist will. Choose to play Lago which of course is following tho Lino tot least resistance. Lago is a comparatively simple beside Othello Iago in Knorra in tho vernacular As a Quot showy Quot part Lago is so clearly defined in his villainy that to can be made Dell loudly villainous and text to the Good Man an audience adores a consummate sinner. It is striking tho Middle note which taxes the Power of the actor. Quot i believe that Othello 18 one of the great tragedies of the world. I believe that jealousy is one of the dramatic emotions and i believe that a play rests on the Burer foundation with jealousy As the motive than the less complicated themes of ambition Money hunger and patriotism. Any actor who can Render acceptably the speech a most potent Gravo and reverend Seigneurs is a line. Artist and whoever can smother Desdemona with out arousing threats of Lynching a a wonderfully Grei t artist a theatrical gossip. A Quot to \ v. Fannie Rico was lately married and on the conclusion of her season will a it is said leave the stage. 1 Edna May Spooner is to be featured in a company playing in the principal cities of the South this Suthmer. She will appear in a big production in the to obstruct sidewalks to be tested in court. London is haying its own Peculiar troubles Over the Sale of theater tickets. The right of Heaters to create a Public nuisance by obstructing the sidewalks with Long a a queues of people waiting for the doors to open is at last to be tested in court. Every american visitor to London has been struck of an evening by the Long lines of people that practically Block the sidewalks from As Early As five to eight o clock. Owing to the system in Force at the Heaters and music Halls of not reserving any but the orchestra and the first Balcony pm Ople who Purchase the cheaper priced seats have to stand in line for a ours arid await the opening of the doors. The Rule is first come first served., a it a a curiously. Enough the theatrical manager themselves Are not entirely responsible for this condition As practically every attempt on. Their part to Reserve the entire theater has met a with failure. Quot the Public like their a first come a first served principle and Are willing to endure hours of discomfort in seeing that it is maintained. During Irving a last appearance it was no unusual thing for a queue to form 48 hours in Advance of the opening of the doors. Aged womb a were among the first to take up positions making themselves comfortable on Camp stools and wisely taking along with them alcohol lamps Teapot and refreshments to nourish them during their Long vigils. / the nuisance of the queues particularly in Traille centers like the strand is rapidly becoming More acute and unendurable. A despite the efforts of the police it is difficult for toot travellers to make their Way along the sidewalks of an keepers in the theater Dis Tricia have the most bitter grievance against the system. They complain with truth that it is impossible for customers to easily get into their stores. A Quot. A a a a a a if the test cd Seib decided against the theater the decision will be of great import twice. To every theatrical Enterprise in great Britain and to ill undoubtedly Lead to. The abolition of the queue and the forced introduction of the american plan of reserving and numbering All seats. And Lackaye do not pay each other such delicate Little compliments Willie Collier gave a hard look into the to where Wilton Lackaye was enjoying a the pdtrlot.�?�. A. A what shall i asked pretty Helena Byrne in the lines of her part As she sauntered toward the pianoforte with a sacral Fly Al a a instead of the answer in the play which la a a play the piano of course a or. Collier electrified the a cast and brought Down the Hoube by replying a a won to you play a just before the Bat tie Wilton?�?T.�?� and or. V Lackaye of Pom 4 the �4 . Tie i for an every Day. Wash dress and girls from four to fourteen a hats Are of Straw plainly trimmed. Funny lit tie mushroom shapes in fancy or plan Straw Are seen trimmings often taking the form of Bias lengths of mull which wrap the Crown Scarf Wise and end in a soft Side or front knot. A Pale Blue or Bright Pink mushroom for a child of three or four May be trimmed with White in this Way or the decking May to wide a White taffeta ribbon which Falls in a quaint Sloppy Bow Over the left ear. In fact quaintness is the keynote of All the Best child millinery and it achieves this Quality through smallness of shape and demure trimming. Huge Over trimmed shapes Are put for h for buyers who weigh size again it style but no Mother of really Good taste gives them a second thought. For Young children who have graduated from the Bonnet stage the tiny mushrooms with their smooth methods of trimming Are very Sweet. For larger girls to whom these Are not becoming there Are straight brimmed fits fits undulated at the brim crowns Low and High. Compact ribbon knots put on in clusters at the Side or front Aud perhaps rear streamers simply deck a number of these others have a Wreath of Small Flowers Long worn with perhaps a ribbon Bow in a addition while a smart hat May have a knot of Flowers at the front and a Prim Bow a Ltd a shortish ends stuck Flat against the Bare Crown at the Back. Quot abut if these imitate former shapes in Point of size they Are immensely moderated. Therefore since smallness is so much a feature of the prettiest child hats a girl in one of the huge ruffled. Or flowered monstrosities once worn seems almost vulgar. Fashion has her classes As Well As the rest of us and to be with her. One must avoid at least the mad Nesses of former seasons. _ the styles for millinery change More a quickly than for anything else but a. Moderate style while bending to some necessities May with slight changes be worn several seasons. Three immediate results Are gained by the present Reform better taste cheapness and the knowledge that any Mother of gifted fingers can get up any of these hats at Home. Count from a Dollar and a half to two dollars for the shape itself. The ribbon Bow and the Wreath or half Wreath of posies can to had for the other two. If one can spend More All the better. There is always Economy in buying the best�?tcan�?~6�8 City Star. L0t10n5jfffoce Satin of the palest Pink is the new color Quot for evening Wear. For evening there is a Revl Vai of the Canary coloured Scarf. All a is or braided and embroidered Coats Are sen Vith perfectly a plan skirts.

This should not be used by decided blondes. It is applied just before dressing the hair which is. Laid in Waves and done loosely the application taking effect As it dries. However harmless Curling Irons May seem they Are ruination if used much. It is undoubtedly True that once in a while they Are harmless and become less Likely to cause dryness if the Metal is warm and not hot. The trouble is that the Irons Are not to effective unless the degree of heat is rather great and this Means an immediate drying of the natural oils and consequent dullness and. Breakage.
