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.

ISS Martha Ford, the new leading lady, owns a name N7h e h is well 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 re- lationship 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 fa- ther's childhood. \Father you known, was a self-made man,\ she says with pride. \When he was a very little boy he kept a news stand opposite the Richmond, then the most popular the- ater in the South. Among the litera- ture fbr 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 after- ward became or were at that time leading lights in the profession. I could talk for hours about the way hie first play was accepted by 'Kunkel's Nightingales,' how he staged and man- aged it, and how he afterward became Identified with theatrical interests in Baltimore, both at Holliday's and the opera house that bears his name.\ \Thrt how about your own career?\ was ventured mildly, for it seemed a pity to interrupt this sweet-faced , daughter in her eulogy of a much - loved father. \There is nothing remarkable about It,\ was the modest reply. \I have been on the stage for years, making my de- but with Miss Marlowe in Baltimore in '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 father's theater. The peo- ple in the company were very lovely to me and I received so many flowers and charming gifts that I was bewil- dered.\ Here Miss Ford showed a su- perb little watch engraved with the date of her first.appearance which was among the \charming gifts\ received on that occasion. Miss Ford to talk with is unusually interesting, though there is a little trace of shyness which seems incongru- ous with her chosen profession. \I am horribly timid,\ she admitted when this peculiarity was mentioned, \and my going on the stage amazes me ter much as it did my family. There are ten of Mk living aed of that number I am the only outcast, the others never leaving home and mother. I am the prodigal and of my sisters and broth- ers the one least expeeted to take up a public career. When I was a girl at school I was positively afraid of my own voice, add e ben I would get up to recite it would he with downcast eyes and trembling . %oice. One commencement I selected Poe's 'To Helena.' and WAR to practice In the chapel with an audience at the back of girls who had congregated to ridicule my efforts. Whether I be- came imbued at that time with some MISS MARTHA FORD celestial fire If know not, but at any rate I recited that poem in a very dif- ferent fashion from the way I recited my lemons, and my eloeution teacher was quite indignant because I had given no te•idence of any talent In this direction before. leiter I recited once In my father's theater, and after that you couldn't have kept me off the stage no matter how hard you had tried.\ \Yon have played lends before, have you not?\ \Yes with Creston Clarke and with Wilfred Clarke. Last year I Was with Mr. Daly, but I feel that a stock com- pany as I am in now is the best school In the world.\ \Are you hotter pleased with the *notions, roles or throe; more humor - aria in chereeterr \I don't think I have ever plered in the latter, for, even though I have had pomp spiteful little parts, there are a few Uwe s mewhere that I could make sympathetic, so that they wouldn't think that I was altogethcr ugly \ Miss Ford an sbn said this Im- pressed her hearer with the idea that she noted make even \ugly things\ sound sweet and 4 stowly if Tom COOPER, THE FAMOUS CLASS B RIDER. A Product of tbis Present aesson—Pall- forela as ('enter of IlIcyclIng In - t Gossip About the Wheel, Shen. ' HE hero of the na- tional bicycle cir- cuit at the present time Is Tom Coop- er, the Detroit rider. Cooper, who is one of the young- est riders in Class B, made his debut on the circuit this season in a very un- ostentatious man- ner, and efter several months' riding and winning the reputation of a \fair racer,\ he electrified the racing enthuol- asts by forging to the front and defeat- ing Eddie Bald, the peer of the path, and all the noted men in Class B. Cooper's victory was not a temporary one, for his first success has been fol- lowed by repeated victories. Short dis- ta.nces seem to be his specialty. His rapid jump into prominence has nem- 'prised the racing fraternity. He has won twenty-three first prizes on the national circuit this season. In the arrangement of the national circuit cities have to be left out of the nation*, circuit meet for which they apply, owing to lack of time within the ordinary racing season in which to grant the date. In the arrangement of the naponal circuit the capabilities of the men have Indomitable will and a hereditary love of the stage went for anything, this gracious and lovely young woman will prove herself a favorite with the pa , trons of the stage. NOTES OF THE STAGE. A Wall street syndicate is said to be backing Lawrence Hanley, who is am- bitious to shine as a Shakespearean ctar. Miss Anna Bruce has just been en- gaged to create the role of Rosalind in the new musical farce, — rine Newest Woman.\ Apropos of John Hare's American tour it has been definitely decided to include in the repertoire of the Gar- rick Theater company Coughlin's corn - Royal Opera, Stockholm, Sweden; Miss edietta, \A Quiet Rubber,\ Sydney Grundy's \A Pair of Spectacles\ and A. W. Plnero's \The Notorious Mrs. Ebb - smith.\ Additions will doubtless be made and it is probable that some one of Robertson's comedies will be se- lected. Mme. Francesca Guthrie -Moyer, the dramatic soprano, will tour with her own concert company, supported by the following artists: Henry F. Stow, ten- or; Sig. E. Svedelins, late basso of the Royal Opera, Stockholm, Sweden; Miss Fannie Lobey„violinist, and Herr J. Erich Schmaal, pianist, from Vienna, Austria. The season will open at the Academy of Music in Milwaukee Sept 26. The Actor Whose Recent Illness Caused Much Anxiety. Mr. Mansfield was born in England in. 1857, studied for the East Indian civil service, but came to Boston and opened a studio as a painter. He went back RICHARD MANSFIELD. to England to study art, but necessity I lead him to the boards and he procured an unremunerative engagement in small parts In comic opera. lie came to this country again, and after a suc- cess at the Standard Theater, New York, as Dromez in \Les Manteaux Noirs\ his advance was rapid. His successes have covered the wide field from Koko in 'The Mikado\ to Richard III., but he has created many parts pe- culiarly his own, of which Beau Brum- mel, Rev. Arthur Dimmesdale in \The Scarlet Letter/and the titular roles in \Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde\ are among the most famous. BASE BALL NOTE. _ The best strike -out record of the sea- son has been made by Thornton, the pitcher farmed out by Chicago to Rock- ford. In a game against Dubuque, Sept. 2, he struck out fourteen men in seven innings. Manager Ilanlon has lit upon a prom- ising minor league pitcher whom no other club seems to have unearthed. His name indicates that he hails from Erin. --Laitimore Sun. Must be Mc - flinty or O'Grady. President Kerr, of Pittsburg. is inech distressed because the profits of this year will have to go for the purchase 1 of stronger players instead of a new I grand stand. Manager HELI11011 favors the adoption of the double umpire system. A New York exchange says that St. Louis has but four men who are fast enough for league company, and names Ely, Cooley, Pietz and Breitenstein. Captain Tcbeau is rather mortified becauee the impression has gone out saute way or other that he believes that there is crookedness, and that Cleve- land is being dishonestly worked against. 0. P.

The coast has sent excellent talent, and al- though their doings have not been those of world-beaters, Ziegler, Terrill and Wells have and are rapidly' cell- vincing the riders that the west is not to be sneezed at. It was in line, then, that the coast people should want to see their best men meet the best men of the east. Their promoting a month's addition to the national circuit, to ti place in October. was in keeping with their de- sire. They secured the national cir- cuit dates.

Distinguished Author. Playwright a .1 Romantic Actor. Harold Kyrie Bellew was born in England, but went to India in boyhood, his father. Rev. J. C. M. Bellew, being appointed chaplain of the Cathedral at Calcutta. Kyrie entered the English navy as a cadet, served seven years, and then went to the Australian gold fields. He later joined an expedition to New Guinea, which was shipwrecked, he be- ing one of three survivors. He worked for a time on Melbourne newspapers, then returned to England and made his debut at Theater Royal, Brighton. He became leading man and star in Lon- don. and In 1886 leading man in Wel- lack's Theater, New York. Then he joined Mrs. James Brown Potter, with whom he has played in all English- speaking countries. Mr. Bellew is au- thor of \Yvonne \Iolande\ and \Hero and Leander,\ besides many adapta- tions, to be taken into account. Racing is a I hard business when carriefl on through a great length of time, and the great distance that has to be covered in giv- ing meets, even with the great rail- road sytem anti the comfortable travel- ing enjoyed in this country. Thus it is that a - vast territory has hitherto been ;•nit 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 cir- cuit races by men of high caliber and far different from the men of old, when the records of the coast were many sec- onds slower than the records of the world held by einstorn riders. Waller startled the world when he f Twsil (700PElt lowered the twenty -few. heir record a the world.

HEN emigration to the west began, as early, as 1783, the leaders of the east- ern statee were (r ) frightened. There still exist old cê pamphlets, not to say old caricatures, which ridicule the desire to go west. In a dozen forms the old story is still told of the emigrant from a Massachusetts town,who went to Ohio, carrying with him a jug of mo- lasses, and came back boasting that he had sold his molasses for enough to pay for the molasses and the jug. On the right hand and Oct the left, every effort was made to persuade our people that they had better stay here and not trust themselves to the rico valleys of the Scioto and the Miami. Those who went and 'trusted themselves there were perfectly indifferent as to what was said to those who remained be- hind. And the caricature anti the pamphlet are now left to the dust of antiquarian libraries, and only referred to as Mrs. Partington's broom is re- ferred to, with which she tried to sweep back the waves of the sea. All the same, however, little or noth- ing is known about the wave of emigra- tion. De Tocqueville studied the matter with care, and gave to us the curious figure, which has been verified, that the average flow of the wave was, in his time, seventeen miles inn a year. A similar flaw'began from the Pacific coast eastward, after we took a foot- hold in Oregon and California, and the two waves have met each other. There are people to -day who are as unwilling to encourage emigration to the west from New England as their grandfathers were. They are a little apt to be people who own tenement houses, ten stories high, and would be glad to make them twenty stories high if they could get good rents for the nineteenth and twentieth stories. They are people who are living under the delusion that a city, because its popu- lation is large, is prosperous and rich. But the prophecies of these people, and the Partingtonism, does not in the least affect the purpose of those people i who wish to emigrate. As Abraham Lin- coln would have said, itioee people wino want to go want to go, and those people wh i p mean to go mean to go. In point of fact, roughlye e epeaking. 2 per cent of the population of the eetiboard states move westward every year. It is a little curious, and it is satisfactory for Its in Massachusetts to observe that the attraction of Massachusetts to an- other set of people is, in its way, as great as, in its way, the attraction of the western valleys. It would prob- ably be fair to say that at this moment 280,000 persons born In Massachusetts are living in other states of the Ameri- can union, and that 280,000 persons born in other states are living in Mas- sachusetts. The two fancies about meet each other. The account is about as broad as it is long. At the interesting meeting held on Monday e4ning, the first colony club in Massachusetts was formed, not to make any particular colony for any par- ticular place, but set on foot such ar- rangements as shall tend to the com- fort of emigrant s. The Col- ony Club proposes to collect and circu- late information on the subject of open-air life in the west. It proposes some such mutual assistance as has proved possible in the (7hautauqua cir- cles and other great reading circles of the country. It proposes the establish- ment of similar clubs in all the larger centers of New England. And it cannot be doubted under prudent and wise management a satisfactory result may be s o a ecure1. To acertain icgtent, the Indifference of the general government towards in- terior emigration may be atoned for by such arrangements as these clubs nosy be able to make Edward Everett Hale, in Boston Commonwealth.
