What, in heaven's name, would he have said of the play presented at tho Lansing theatre Tuesday night? Mr. Potter Eassed over all the refinement in the ook and extracted all that wis gross, and added coarseness of his own. ilo caricatured Svengali and burlesqued one of the most dolicate stories ever written. The play is common, uncanny, and the players in the company seen here this eek succeeded in robbing Du Maurier of any slight credit the dramat ist may havo accorded him, and made the play melodramatically repulsive. In the first act nearly all the characters aro burlesqued. In tho second, the revel in tho studio is manufactured out of whole cloth and passes the border line of decency. It was realism carried to an objectionable point. The remaining two acts were a decided improvement. Miss Crane is a competent actress. She co...

gg- g"W S,J rr THE COURIER. K i 9 IN RELATED KEYS Herbert Bates I The most striking feature of last Sun day's recital at the Universalis! church was Carl Schubert's "Journes." It had, however, the defect of program music without a program. One knew that a phrase stood for something, but whether it was a quarrel with the driver, or a plunge of the horses, or a gust of wind, there waB no telling. Such music needB a guide book. The really excellent part of the composition was the development of the Volkslieder, odd barbaric melo dies with an echo of things heard at the World's fair. They inclined to the minor, with an odd foreign rhythm and tonality. They carry one in fancy to far off places, where grim fur capped men. with jarring names, sing plain tive war songs and rejoice in minor strains, in music not morbid, but plain tive with the spacious pathos of the sul len steppes. Schubert has used good material to advantage. But bis own original work seems to lack strength. His composi ti...

1 v v THE COURIER. i v v $ HISTORY AND REMINISCENCE Jay Amos Barrett The following rather interesting pas sage from the diary of Moses Merrill touches the Mormons in their early Zions. It will be remembered by stu dents of history that the Mormons were moving westward many years before they reached the chosen valley, in the desolute etotches of country by the lake of salt. And long before the historic strife in Illinois, they were gathered in numbers in Missouri territory. Under date of July 22, 1833, nnd from the Shawnee Indian camp or mission, Mr. Merrill says: "The Mormonites, who have fixed uyon Jackson county. Mo., as the holy land, and have settled large, ly in it, are now greatly disturbed by the other part of the inhabitants. Two of their chief speakers, Partridge and -have been tarred and feathered openly in the day time by a large num ber. This rfas done on the 20th inst., at Independence, Mo., the county town.

af w ' '" THE COURIER. ffi rltef-v li THROUGH A SPECTRUM. Xot since Col. Ingersoll lectured at tbo Lansing has the Lincoln public been permitted to listen to so vigorous, so complacent, and withal so harmless a damning of spiritual motive and the doctrine of the hereafter as has been presented to Courier readers in recent issues over the signature of II. E. New branch. Very few people nowadays, except university students taking the first semester's work in the department of philosophy, have had sufficient experi ence or mental training to think out the correct conclusions in these matters of metaphysics, or the temerity, to go into print, that we may all understand even as they do. The ease and precision with which some undergraduates can dash off a criticism of Browning, horseflesh, eco nomics, religion, anything at all; and their willingness to settle any dis puted question and to tell all about it, gratis, whether they know or not, these qualities have been so persisently obtrusi...

The appearance for one performan ce of the eminent actor, Mr. Frederick Wardo, is announced at the Lansing theatre next Thursday evening, Janu ary 23. Warde has had a wide experi ence and has developed great versatil ity. As a tragedian he has no superior upon the stage today. But tragedy in its old-fashioned garb appeals to but few in these times, when the minds of men turn principally to money-getting. Nobody knows this better than Mr. Warde for he knows by actual experi ence that a moving tragedy, no matter how elaborately staged and well acted, does not pay. This season he has done a wise think by returning to the roman tic, wherein he excels. The Mounte bank, which he plays here, has received most favorable notices wherever it was played. No better idea of the work of Who, among the theatre-goers fails to recall the many happy hours afforded by Henry E. Dixie in the famous burlesque...
