What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

How many aspiring dramatists pondered over the story and weighed the slim chances of evolving a drama with any sustained interest from 1/u Mauriees delightfully chatty narrative will never be known. One seasoned veteran of the play-house, however, determined to make the venture. and In December last It was announced that Paul M. Potter was adapting \Trilby\ for A. M. Palmer, having secured the necem- eary peceission of Harper lee Bros., the publiiihere, who own the copyright of the nove', and control the rights to dramatization. The play was written In • very short time, a company select - A M. PALMER. cd and reheareed, and on March last \Trilby\ in dramatic form was produced at the Park theater, Boston, where its success was instantaneous and complete. The cast was as follows: Taffy, Mr. Burr McIntomh; The Laird, Mr. John GlendirmIng; Little Billie, Mr. Alfred Hickman; Svengali, Mr. Wilton Lackaye; Gecko. Mr. Robert Paton Gibbs; Zou Zou, Mr. Leo Dietrichstein; Dodor, Mr. Herbert Ayling.; Antony. Mr. V. M. de SlIke; Lorimer, Mr. Edwin Brandt; Rey. Thomas Begot, Mr. Ed- ward L. Walton; Col.

In his dramatization of the popular novel Mr. Potter had many difficulties to encounter, not the least of which wae the seeming impossibility of giving dramatic expression to a story greatly Inking in dramatic elements, and whose chief attraction was the un- tleoeietaide \harm of its telling Perhaps it was because he was suei tained In the work by the implicit confi- dence reposed In his ability by Manager Palmer Studying the Story carefully Potter realized that the possibility of building a substantial dramatic struc- ture lay in the enlargement of the hYnnotte Idea, and on these lines he planned hie play.

SOME RECENT INVEN1 l()Ns AND DISCOVERIES One of Nature's Ste reoty Pidlies--- A Chicken Howie Made or , '«t—Cut ot the Moving Tabernacle - A. Ids and Al- kali.. Notes or Industry. A EAT KW . ) >MAW- rrrArs. NE i.f the great difficulties that sur- veyorm encounter in attempting to fol- low the lines of old surveys is the dis- appearance of old landnuirks. This may occur from heedlessness of man or the forces of na - tune. An example of the latter is shown in the accompanying eut. It shows with some degree of accuravy the perfect stereotyping that nature is capable of executing, though she takes years to accomplish the task. In 1534 the United States government surveyor made surveys of eertain lands in Florida, and, as la the etistom, noted corners and angles by blazing the trees and marking on them with gattgel'e tools the range, township and section numbers, says the New York Sun. The surveyor employed by the Florida Land and Lumber company of Velutsia coun- ty,Florida,recently during the course of an examination of the lands of the corn- ,pany split up a cypress tree in search of such corner marks. The ax separated the chip, of which the above is a picture, and dimclosed on the trunk of the tree the marks fur which he searched. The marks: \R. 30, T. 14, S. 33,\ appear in bas-relief on the eoncave side of the slab or chip, and are as distinct as the original marks were when the surveyor made them on the trunk of the tree over sixty years ago. Every feature of the matrix is distinctly reproduced. The land company's surveyor sent the fol- lowing explanatory letter with the chip: - This curiosity is a chip cut off a cy- press tree standing near the southwest corner of section 33, township 14, range 30. These marks of the section, range and township numbers were cut int. the tree by the United States govern- ment surveyor in 1834, and the new growth of the tree covered up and grew over the marks, taking the reverse im- pression of the marks yet remaining on the tree. The chip was split off by me while examining the lands of the Florida Lan ik and Lumber company. By referenceito the map you will see that this corner is in the edge of a cypress swamp. Many such marks were found by me, and this is one of many proofs of the accuracy of my survey.\ The specimen will be sent by the own- ers to the New York Museum of Natu- ral History. A Chicken House Made of Sod. The sod house shown in the illustra- tion I have found healthful, convenient and large enough to accommodate 75 to 100 hens. In a bank sloping southwest I made an excavation 12 feet east and west by 22 feet north and south. At the southwest corner the excavation was on a level with the surface of the ground; at the north side it was 2% feet deep. Around the crlgem I built a wed wall making its upper edge five feet above the. Moor. I roofed the north half with boards and covered with tar paper. A border of sod was placed all around ,the edge, then the whole overlaid with six inches of gypsum taken from a pit near by. /n the south half of the roof I put two hotbed sashes 3x9 feet and cov- ered the remainder of the space the same as the north side. In the walls were placed two glass Windows arid a door with glass in the upper part. In the north well there is a window level with the roosts 18 Inches high and five feet long. It is used for ‘. nribolon in the summer in %%Intel it is covered With board. and flanked with earth. The windows are hinged and covered with heavy wire netting. I have an extra lattice door for summer. The walls were given two conte of gypsum or poor man's plaster (very abundant in the southwest), and when dry a heavy whitewash was applied to fill all cracks Roosts occupy the norek,half.

FREAK OF NATURE. - — flow the Popular Navel Orange First Came to Thia Country. There have been more naval oranges In the market this winter than ewer before. The fruit is doubtless gaining in popularity, the flavor being excep- tionally tine, though the skin is much thicker than that of the Indian River orange. Inasmuch as all aorts of the- ories are in circulation as ks the origin of the variety, a few words accurate information on the subjeet in* not be :ttniss. To begin with, the first navel orange was doubtless a freak, or \sport aK horticulturists say. To make such a fruit by artifice would be impossible, according to the Washington Star. It Is abnormal, even in the bud. The navel shows in the bud as eariy as the latter can be examined under the mi- croscope. It may even be traced back to the Hower, which is double ---though that word does not express the idea vbry well, each blossom having a sec- ondary blossom within it. In the de- veloped fruit the navel is itself a sec- ondary orange, in some specimens hav- ing a distinct skin surrounding it. This two-story orange is no novelty. .‘ book on horticulture, published in itl-12, gives a picture of a navel orange and calls it \ponttun Adam' foeturn.\ This is the earliest reference known. The blossoms rarely have any pollen, and the fruit is usually, though not al- ways, seedless. The variety. is repro- duced by budding. Where it origi- nated is not known with certainty, but It was probably in southern Asia. Thence it was brought to the region of the Mediterranean and eventually dif- fused over the world. A lady who had traveled in Brazil told Mr. Saunders, chief gardener of the department of agriculture, about the orange, which she had seen In that country. Acting on this information, Mr. Saunders told a Star reporter that he sent to Bahia and setured a dozen young budded trees. These reached titi- United States In 1870, being the first navet orange trees known here. From these trees others were prop- agated. One of the first batch thus ob- tained is now In the orange -house of the department of agriculture. In 1971. two of the tree); were sent to Mrs. I.. C. Tibbetts, of Riverside, Cal. At the same time others were sent to Florida. But those planted In California fruited more quickly and were the first to at- tract attention. It soon became evi- dent that the climate of that state was better suited to the cultivation of this variety. In Florida It is not suftlisiently productive 1. e., does not bear freely enough to be profitable. Nevertheless. the fittest navel oranges come from Florida, thought they are not so hand- some as those front California. _ FASHION IN FIJI. It (ti'.. MA \Inch Concern to the Ladies There as 1 , 11•Jewhere. Fijian women have a most affee- donate disposition, although, like all semi -civilized people, they are extreme- ly sensitive and ready to take offense at the veriest trifles. Their skins aro usually of a bright dark brown, smooth and glossy as polished marble, and many, while young, possess handsome features and most symmetrival forms, but, unfortunately, their natural grace ipeedily diaappears after marriage at least among the common people, who have no attendants to relieve them in Pie heavier duties of the household. While unmarried, their hair, pictur- esquely adorned with hiblacus and other flowers. Is permitted to fall in thin plaits down the back of the neck. This is regarded as a sign of maidenhood After marriage the plaits are cut off, and not allowed to be worn again. In Suva and lasviika the women gen- erally wear a blouge-Rhaped pinafore of thln white cotton, but in their homes or in the interior districts they are content with the multi, a kind of loin cloth made front the hark of the native mulberry tree, and wrapped two or three times round the body The nian- ufacture of this cloth. called tappa, one of the leading industries in FIJI, the hark being beaten with wooden mallets Into thin sheets, whieh are jollied together as required.
