THE COURIER. & I-" fr' L C m all did their great work after they were forty years old. Poe never did his great work. He could not endure the hunger. This year the Drexel Institute hss put over sixty thousand dollars into a now edition ot Poo's poenis and stories. He himself never got six thousand for them altogether. If one of the great and learned institutions of the land had in vested one tenth of that amount in the living author forty years ago wo should have had from him such works as would have riado tho name of this nation great. But ho sold "The Masque or the Red Death' for a few dollars, and now the Drexel Instituto pays a publisher thousands to publish it beautifully. It is enough to make Satan laugh until his ribs ache, and all tho little devils laugh and heap on fresh coals. I don't wonder they hate humanity. It's so dense, so hopelessly stupid. Only a few weeks before Poe's death he said he had never bud time or oppor tunity to make a serious effort. All his tales we...

THE COURIBK. ! NOTES AND QUERIES I, o ! OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO In last week's Coubiek it was inti mated that "The Personal Recolections of Juan of Arc now appearing in liar per'a Monthly was written by Mark Twain. On what authority was such a statement made? A. R. I. "Mark Twain's" humor is peculiar, unique. No other writer has the way of making his characters make fun of themselves. They make faces and con tort thoir mental bodies into grotesque They are in literature what gargoyles, and such like exaggerations of the human and animal form are in architecture. We could get along without them, but they are interesting survivals of the Gothic. That is why I respect Mark Twain. lie is an interest ing Gothic survival. That is a great compliment to him and he does not de serve it. lie lacks the intensity that the Gothic had even in its gambols. It had a never-deviating purpoce. It was never trivial. Mark Twain is nearly alwiys purposeless and insincere. Prad-din-head Wilson's calendar...

In 1781 he emigrated to America and im mediately settled in Greencastlf, Penna. He afterward visited Ireland, and "n July 28, 1788, there married Jean Oliver. The same year he returned with his brid to Newcastle, where both continued to reside untill death. He died September 10, 1823, and she died August 5, 1839.

THE COURIER. 0(0XiMM POINTS IN POLITICS The nominees of the republican party for the judiciary, Hall, Holmes anil Cor nish, have long since been introduced to the people of this district. Judge Hall in the years of his term on the district bench has mado a reputation for fair "ness and judicial ability that will cau6e him to receive a large vote irrespective of party. Of course, his reelection is assured, as is also thatof Judge Holmes. The latter has not been on the bench a great while, but ho hs for many years been a meinbet of the Lancaster county bar, and lawyers and the general public have the utmost confidence in his fair ness and ability. Mr. Cornish has not as yet been tried on the bench, but he has done considerable public service, and this service has been to the entire satisfaction of his constituents. As a member of the legislature he wasa care ful guardian of the interests of the county. He was looked upon as one of the most judicial members of that body. J. S. Baer and...

You should vote the republican ticket at the approaching election of county officers because the ticket nominated by the republican party ia the cleanest, strongest ticket over named by the party in this county, and the party has usually presented as good a ticket or better, than any other party haa named. This year the republican ticket is the best ticket in the Held and this isnosnecLI disparagement of other ticketB either. You should vote the republican ticket because being a republican, as I take it you are, you are interested in repub lican success, and republican success, republican supremacy, depend in no small measure on the election of the whole republican ticket.

Eating ib not a romantic occupation, but it is rather necessary, even to the roost romantic people. It is amusing to watch the fellows who were in a box party last night crawl upon those high stools and meekly orders a sausage and a doughnut for breakfast, while the man who sal in his shirt sleeves in the gallery ordered a whole boiled dinner to begin the day on. One morning I saw a young swell who does the elegant on no visible resources sit staring sadly at his sand wich and coffee while he chewed the stem of a sunset rose he had worn to a party the night before.

THE COURIER. i I !! ((( ((( THE PASSING SHOW 1 I beard the other day. a story about a poem, and since Richard Harding Davis thought it good enough to write about I will tell it myself. A few months after Anno Reeve Aldrich, the poet, died, some of her best verses appeared in Harper' a under other initials than her's. If 1 re member rightly the verses ran something like this: "If it were land, then weary feet could travel, If it were ana a thlp might cleave the wave, If it wore death ad eres could look to heaven And aee through tears the innlight on a crave. But land nor sea nor death keep us apart. But only thou, O unforgiving heart." 1 , "If it were land through piercing thorns I'd travel, If it were sea I'd cross to thee or die, If it were death I'd tear life's veil asunder. That I might see tho with a clearer eye. Bat land nor sea nor death keep us apart. Forget, forgive, O unforgiving heart' Miss Aldrich's friends were indignant and wrote to Richard Harding Davis demanding an ex...

Her work speaks excellently for her teacher, Mr. Lamp recht, whom, by the way, it ia a pity that we have not more opportunities to hear. Her technique ia excellent. Unfortun ately both of the numbers that she played were rather of the difficult, elab orate, and florid order, bo that it ia not easy to judge of her tone in singing pas sages. She was hampered, too, by her instrument, which lacked richness of may add to oratory, it cannot make it. Oratory is not the genius of elaborate delivery. It is the genius of creation, of personal presence, of weighted utter ance, which, crudely or superbly, will compel its way. Mr. Williams is not an orator. He is a clever elocutionist, and wou...

THE COURIER. sd---. V5. " Bare, Is-if; ft;-!- i M IP' ANNOUNCEMENTS. America has known no such success as the side-splitting comedy "Charley's Aunt.' The piece made a hit last sea son and continued to maintain its popu larity so that the musicians of the or chestra have been obliged at every pre sentation to play beneath the stage, and thus make room for ticket buyers. A success of such proportions demonstrates clearly that there is something in "Charley's- Aunt" which the public wants. That something is wholesome fun, and plenty of it, and this new candidate for popular favor contains more of it than any comedy seen here in years. It is a simple thing, too, that causes most of it; a man masquerading, and masquerading in the most deliriously droll and awk ward manner, in female apparel, with scarcely any attempt whatever at mim icking lady-like airs and graces. This is where the fun comes in. A female im personation, so called, would never be half so humorous. Tne mirth-provoking co...

Her year's work in Paris is repre sented by an immense pile of sketches with a few done in water color. Her lead pencil work has unusual strength.

Fre quently the youngster has imagination and a good idea of composition but the color 'will be sloppy and the drawing slovenly, it it be careful anywhere the effect is labored . Miss Rigbters draw ing of a gargoyle might suit Buskin be cause of its thoroughly conscientious work, and it might at the same time secure Whistler's approbation by its freedom, its lack of f ussiness and its ar tistic method.
