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.

The Artistic Beauty ot Her Perform- ance le Beyond Question— lier Bizarre mud Original Methods Dave Captured Americans. O PARIS THERE belongs a bewitch- ing sylph of Imagi - nation, a poem ot exquisite feminin- ity, born of French 3 gallantry, impres- sionistic art and chartreuse rouge. That she really ex- ists outside of vel- atHe boulevard compliment, Du - ‚ear and Bourget literature or Cheret otters is a question neither permits - al le nor spirituelle, but she is as much a part of French history as St. Gen- evieve Catherine di Medici.

The vagrant spirit of ReJane 'bust have hypnotized lat- ter-day painters of woman into fore- telling, foreshadowing herself, for she le the Incarnation of that Intangible, rare, yet omnipresent creature of breams In Freiech literature and modern Illustration. Aside from the grace of verifying French chivalry and substan- tiating the furbelowed rights of Paris to an essential, special being of allure- ments, Mme. Rejane is so wealthily en- dowed with wit, dramatic genius, pe - culiar, haunting expressiveness and emot hula I expansion that he brings with her an awakening bell in art. She has temperament exquisitely attuned to the poetic and picturesque, over which is a measure of the uncanny and ghoul- ish fascination which hangs about Sa- rah Bernhardt. There is the 1i - reinst- 4tute attractiveness of frenetic taint and decadence not only in the art of ReJane in Mme. Sans -Gene is so obtrusively gauche and characteristic that scarcely S notion of Itejane's grace le hinted, though the force and correi tnsa of every pantomime sentence are evident outgrowths of that control which means absolute beauty of movement an.' pose.

Something of a moubrette's amativeness for applauirt leads Mme.

In these days when the . masses are given over to farce and the pulses of higher order beat pleasantly only when the hands may be steeped \in the gray twilight of Gothic things,\ the true ring of artistic comedy is the healthiest, happiest, heartiest thing in all art, and Mme. Heiene's brilliant ex- position of rare methods and great tal- ent must he held a benison of sweetest Comfort. AMY LESLIE SALARIES THEN AND NOW. \Der Boss Dresident\ Gives Away a rev. Facts About Them. President Von der Ahe of the St. Louis Browns has prepared a table which will be of interest to baseball cranks of the old days, and also to those of these later days, inasmuch as It shows the salaries received per month by old-time favorites. It also serves to recall the names of players well nigh forgotten by cranks of the last few sea- sons. Comisky, who will this year man- age the St. Paul team, cafne to the Browns in 1882 at a salary of $75 per month. He Immediately established himself as a favorite, and the following season received $171.44 each month dur- ing the playing seas .i. In 1884 his sal- ary was inereilsed more than 8300 a month. When he went to Cincinnati he was getting $1,083.33 a month from President Von der Ahe, and went to Brush at an increase over that. He was getting at that time what was considered one of the largest, if not the largest, amount of money for playing ball of any one GABRIELLE REJANE, ACTRESS. but her strange orientIalism of pereon- ality, the witchery of her face, her ser- pentine grace of movement and the rakish careletienema and unevenness of her methods and manners. She ix a tirpe of the century, a genius unhealthy In luxuriance and abundant In fasci - nations. Her beauty is a beauty cre- ated by artists before her comedies and fierce little Ibsen dramas were written. Jil er methods are absorbingly animal and instinctive with that epiritistle un- consciousness resultant in the most brilliant dramatic achievement. She is a culminative expression of the hour's vague tendency and She comes like a whirlwind from an impenetrable forest of orchids, a flash of lIghtnine carrying In its zig -sag spasm of fire. She la not complete, She Is not eolacing nor filling, she is Helene and the magic of a name made so unusual must become food for a new word, a special adjective of ad- vanced significance.

Noblemen The London World in an article on foreign \nobility . ' SaYtil In France it is extremely difficult to draw a hard- and-fast line bet wren those titles which are genuine and those which are not. The utmost which can be done Is to classify them as \old \new and \doubtful This uncertainty clearly opens a road to the adventurer. He must take care not to assume too high a rank or to adopt a name which is too well known or already belongs to some historic family. But if he is content to name himself after some orchard in Perigord or Anjou and to style himself no more than Baron or Vicomte he may almost defy exposure, even though he do not escape suspicion. In Italy there is a well-defined list of old Roman, Nea- politan, Pledirontese, and Tuscan fam- ilies But there is also the considera- tion that it is not so many years ago that the minor grades of nobility might be obtained by purchase. The republic Of San Marino raises a regular revenue by the sale of titles which•possess a very apparent Italian origin. In Aus- tria up to quite recently the rank of Baron was SIDiti to all who would pay the price. In the minor states of Ger- many and in Pcussia, before the for- mation of the German empire, a very considerable proportion of the crea- tions of the inesent century were pur- chased. The innumerable Jewish baron- ies, with curious hybrid names, which are found all over Western Europe, are the result of \transfers\ by needy mon- archs to wealthy financiers. In Bel- gium and Holland the same practice has prevailed to a greater or smaller ex- tent, and the little republic of Andorra still drives a continuous trade in pat- ents of nobility. Even the grandeeship of Spain has been recruited with self- made men by this means. In order, therefore, to differentiate the real head of an existing family from his needy cousin who lives by his wits, and both from the adventurer who has made a fortune by successful swindling and adopted a title of his own free will as a social passp&t, it might be necessary to search through many ponderous tomes which only a skilled genealogist would know where to find and how to use. \AMERICAN OSCAR WILDE \ Rey. Kadir E. Dash. Frantically Calling In Lithographs That t-iti Advertise Him. Rev, Kadir Edward Davis, pastor of the ('entrai Christian church, of Oak- land, Is frantically busy calling in ad- vertising lithographs scattered throughout California announcing that \Rev. Kadir Edward Davis, popularly known as'TheAmericanOscar Wilde,' \ would appear at a certain date and de- liver a lecture. It is a ticklish tltie for the aesthetic clergyman. He no longer wears a sunflower and is struggling with the temptation to cut his long hair. He has had new plates prepared for his display lithographs and here- after he will he proclaimed merely as \the versatile gentleman.\ For years Mr Davis traveled over the United States, announcing himself as the \American °Filar Wilde,\ a designation given him by an eastern paper. \I am at a loss to knew just what to do,\ said he to a reporter. \It is true that I have been a great admirer of the author of 'Dorian Grey' and 'A Woman of No Im- portance.' I believed in aesthetics I think a preacher should be a leader In dress as well as in thought. The day for preachers of the gospel to garb themselves in camel's hair and leath- ern girdles is past. I took Oscar Wilde as my model. I think he is a man of 'great genius. Now I am not afraid of .-riticism and while my methods may he considered bizarre by more conserv- ative Christians, I feel that I am pur- suing a proper course in appealing to the Curiosity, artistic sensibilities and even the humor of the people. But I am not going to pose any more as the American Oscar Wilde. I don't just know how I am going to get the public to drop the title. On my lithographs my title henceforth will be the 'Ver- satile Gentleman •• A Ten - cent Vollmer.

Multi' the Bull's iroge et ZOO Yards Every Time. Three or four Detroit drummers, home fi - ion the West, were talking in the ho- tel office about some of tile target shooting they had seen among the cowboy:, and the tales they told were evidently listed for heavy discounts. Listening very intently and quiet y to all they said was an agricultural -look- ing man and when they had finished he put in: \Some men mightn't believe the stories you gentlemen have been tell- ing,\ he said, \but I do. I've just got from Texas, te,nd I saw seine shout- ing down there that would make me believe anything.\ \For instance?\ sugge,,ted one of the drummers, as the new candidate ap- peared to have some doubts about going ahead. - Well,\ he continued in a grateful tone, \I saw several of the feats you mentioned, but one day I saw a thing that beat them all. There was a com- pany of militia called the Crockett riflemen, or something like that, with about 100 or 110 men in it, shooting at a target at long range and making more bull's-eyes than I ever witnessed. \Finally the cuptain put up a target' twelve feet square, with a six-inch hole in the center, at 200 yards, and formed the entire company in a long line in front of it. The command to load was given, and then very slowly came, 'Aim—fire,' and, by thunder, gentle- men there *van% a bullet mark on that target • Every ball had gone through the hole in the middle!\ The agricultural gentleman looked at the drummers a minute and they looked at him, and then rose silently and went un stairs to bed.

Some fifty years ago a very high Ere glish official died in a fortress in India, at a place that is one of the centers of Brahmanic orthodoxy, and at the mo- ment when the news of his death reached the sepoy guard at the main gate a black cat rushed out of it. The guard presented arms to the cat as a salute to the flying spirit of the power- ful Englishman, and the coincidence took so firm a hold of the locality that up to a few years ago neither exhorta- tion nor orders could prevent a 'Endo° sentry at that gate from presenting arms to any cat that passed out at night. Th. American Au attache of the British legation, In addre , ,sing a Washington girl whose name, unfortunately, does not go with the story, said: \I am sorry that the Behring Sea trouble is looking so serious, because, with her splendid naval equipment, Great Britain would wipe you off the face of the earth.\ The young lady retorted: \What again?\ And then came a flash of silence. • A Horse's Endurance. Joel Laytham, a prominent farmer of Mayville Ky., missed one of his horses, and, after much searching, finally discovered the animal buried beneath a rick of hay.
