THINGS THEATRICAL. THE PALMER COMPANY'S ENGAGE- MENT NEXT WEEK. An Artistic Pleasure Assured—The Plot of "Aunt Jack"—News Notes and Gossip. After the rather fiat effervescence of Lady Peggy and the Shatchen, the Palmer Company will be an aesthetic satisfaction. Its engagement begins next Monday evening at the Grand opera house with Captain Swift, and in cludes such plays as Saints and Sinners, Jim the Penman and Aunt Jack. Ada Dyas, the beautiful leading lady, has never appeared before in this city, but her reputation makes her artistic quali ties known. Maurice Barrymore is one of the handsomest men on the stage, and possessed both of talent akin to genius, and of a personality full of inter est. Miss Maud Harrison is an artist of the first rank, as is also Mr. J. H. Stod dart. In fact the whole company is composed of the very best material ob tainable. Aunt Jack, the comedy which ia to be played on Thursday, is termed a farce comedy, but is not of the jingling-black stockinged - t...

6 HER LIP CUT OPEN By a Blow from a Man's Fist. Mrs. Shane's Recent Exciting; Experience. The Story She Told at the Police Station. Because She Declined to Take a Ride She Is Maltreated—She Refuses to Prosecute Her Assailant. At 11:45 o'clock on Saturday night, while Sergeant Morton and a Herald reporter were chatting on the sidewalk in front of the police station, a well-dressed woman about 30 years of age, brushed hurriedly by them in the direction of Broadway, calling upon the officer to follow her as she did so. Walk ing very rapidly for a few yards ahead of the sergeant, the woman suddenly darted into the Herald office, and crouching behind the door sobbed hysterically for several minutes. While trying to pacify her Sergeant Morton noticed for the first time that she held a blood-stained handkerchief to her mouth, and as she seemed to be afraid of pursuit, he induced her to accompany him to the police station. She was there accommodated with a seat in the sergeant's room, and a...

THE STATEMENTS Made by the Banks to the Public and tlie Assessor. Look on These Figures and Then on Those. The City Attorney Finds a Place for Reform. His Report to the Council—lnteresting Statistics—His Recom mendations. On Thursday last the city council, while in session as a board of equaliza- tion, held a long consultation with the city attorney as to the question of com pelling the various banks of the city to pay their just proportion of the taxes, they having for many years past escaped almost entirely the eagle-eye of the assessor. The question having already been tested with success in several of the eastern cities, City Attorney McFar land suggested the advisability of bring ing the matter to a focus here, and it was determined to notify the banks to appear and show cause, if any there was, why they should not be called upon to pay a fair valuation upon their sworn statements of their financial condition. It will be remembered that City As sessor Fischer on May 3d last wro...

Vest's Amendment to the Chinaware Clause of the Tariff Bill Rejected. Senate Proceedings. Correspondence of the Associated Press. Washington, August 4. —In the sen ate today Davis offered a resolution call ing on the secretary of war for informa tion on the subject of the accident last Friday to the lock of the Sault Ste. Marie canal. He spoke of it as a most serious calamity to the commerce of the nation, costing (as he had been informed by telegraph), $500,000 a day. He also mentioned, incidentally, the failure of the house to act on the bill passed by the senate some months ago, providing for a second and larger lock. Cullom hoped the house would be induced to take up that measure and pass it. If not it would be well enough for the senate to take up the river and harbor bill at an earlier day than had been agreed upon, so as ...

The Several Events—lncidents of the Day—Some Notable and Inter esting Sport. Yesterday, the initial one of the sum mer meeting of the Sixth Distiict Agri cultural Association, which opens the grand circuit, was an ideal racing day, the sky being clear and bright, and the heat of the sun tempered by a delightful sea breeze, which continued all the after noon. The beauty of the weather and the promise of an afternoon's sport at tracted a first-class attendance, fully 2,000 people having passed through the entrance gates before the saddling bell rang for the first race. Of this number about one-fourth arrived in vehicles and carriages, and when these were mustered along the fence on either side of the judges' box and near the clubhouse, they presented a formidable array. Owing to delays in starting and the necessary breathing spells be tween heats t...

6 ABOUT FALSE TEETH. DENTIST ADAMS AND MRS. HICKS OF SAN BERDOON. He Has Her Arrested Because She Didn't Like the Teeth He Made for Her and Would Not Pay $10. Mrs. Adna Hicks, of San Bernardino, last Saturday ordered an upper and a lower set of teeth from S. H. Adams. It was agreed that the work was to cost $20, and Mrs. Hicks paid $10 down. The sets did not give satisfaction to the lady who yesterday stated her objections to the dentist at his office. The upper set was satisfactory but the lower set she pronounced use less. According to her testimony she was told that she could not leave until the balance of $10 had been paid and that the lower set was as good as the opper. She offered to visit another odontological artist for the purpose of getting his opinion as to the fit of the lower set. As Adams still insisted that she pay him she started for the door when he stopped her by force and a by stander had to interfere. She then of fered to return the lower set and go with the uppe...

2 GIRLS, DON'T USE SLANG. Invariably Shocking to Hear Vulgar Words Used by Anybody. Thia "sermonette" is especially for yon, dear girls. The advice could be put in three words—Don't do it. Possibly there might come an occasion—say once in a lifetime—when a good round bit of tbe genuine article "slang" would prove fanny. But to hear vulgar words used by a gentle girl is almost invariably ■hocking, writes Mary S. McCobb in Harper * Young People. I remember pass ing two girls in the street and hearing one of them say: "I'll bet you a quar ter." It gave me a shiver. And when a group of schoolgirls fill their conversa tion —as, alas! they often do—with one slang phrase after another the effect on an outsider is painfully disagreeable. The habit of talking slang grows rap idly. It is like reporting a bit of scan dal. Have you never noticed if you say sm unkind word against a neighbor how quickly a chance comes to say another ? And with just that name appalling ease a habit of using carele...

MR. DEPEWS ELOQUENT LEFT LEG. Does He Grind Out of It Inspiration for His Speeches. New York Times: "It's lucky that nothing serious resulted from that trouble Chauncy M. Depew had with his leg a while ago," said a friend of the president of tlie New York Central re cently, "for I verily believe that had sveh a thing as amputation been neces sary Depew would never have been able to make another speech." "What has his leg to do with his ability to make a speech ?" asked a gen tleman who overheard the remark. "It's got just this to do with it: that if Depew were to lose his left leg his speechmaking days would be over. I've heard him make a hundred speeches, and have watched him closely, and I've reached the conclusion that he grinds his speeches out of hia left leg. Have you ever watched him sitting on a plat form waiting for his turn to come? No? Well, you should at the next oppor tunity.

THREE OUT OF FOUR Of the Favorites Come in Winners. At the Race Tract Yesterday. A Whipping Finish to the Handicap. Four Exciting Contests—A Large Attend ance—A Jockey Badly Picked. Tlie attendance at the Agricultural Park yesterday, though not quite as large as that upon the opening day of the meeting, was very good, there being at least 1,500 people within the inclosure when the horses went to the post for the first race. Tlie weather, which was sul try, cloudy and inclined to rain, was doubtless the cause of the decrease in the number of spectators, as the sport pro vided was fully up to the highclass stand ard of the preceding day, and in fact, it would be a hard matter to imagine pret tier races than the first two upon,the card yesterday. There was no falling off in the number of carriages, however, and every conceivable rig from the six in hand drag to tlie one horse "shay" was represented along the inside fence.
