Early In the sixties a foreign inventor
offered the secret of a new explosive that
he had discovered to the British govern
ment. He asked for it an insignificant
price, something under 600. After he
had been kept waiting three months and
had made repeated applications for a de
clslon, he was informed that his offer was
declined with thanks, as neither the War
Office nor the Board of Trade saw any
thing in his invention. The foreigner was
a Swede, by name Alfred Nobel. His in
vention was dynamite. My friend has
only too good cause to remembmer the in
cident, for Nobel had offered him a half
share In the profits if he would finance'
him to the extent of o00 kroner. Unfor
tunately for him, my friend was young
and stui cherished, illusions in regard to
the wisdom of governments and their of

when be learned the views of the British
experts he also declined the offer with
thanks. But for his simple faith he would

Its great simplicity. It were almost un

with the educational side of life. It Is cer

such a unique manner. Henry Irving de

-classic comedy of nearly all countries
Would it be possible to pass this mo
ment without touching upon the compari
son between the comedy of Shakespeare
and that of Mollere? Shakespeare lived
In a day that was almost contemporary
with Mollere, there being 58 years be
tween the birth dates of the two great
figures in classical literature. Shakes
peare will be modern in the years to
come, while Mollere wrote for his day,
and his Influence was felt down the cen
turies, but his day passed on. Satire is
of the head, and no matter how delicious
It is who but those exceptionally versed
in customs and history could appreciate
the point and finesse, and for people at
large, even Intellectual and intelligent
people, the sparkle must ot necessity be
dimmed. How can we say what it was in
Shakespeare that has made him vital for
all time? Who has gone beyond him In
philosophy and in logic, and who In the
depicting of character not the character
of the day, the customs, the manners of
people in a single era or In a single coun
trybut the people ot all time and the
people of the world? Mollere Is French,
and he Is the portrait painter of Individual
weaknesses upon which he throws the
lime light, and everything else he sinks
into perspective a beautiful and artistic
perspective but perepective withal.
Shakespeare has no country; he "hap
pened" in England, but ho Is of the world,
as Beethoven was of the world, and in
him there was the ebb and flow of all the
cosmic forces. As he painted, each de
tail was drawn with the same strength
as. was the great whole, and everything
was an entity of which he understood the
most minute element. That Mansfield
ahould select the role of Alocste (the mis
anthrope) Is far from astonishing, since
he revels in those abnormal characters
which would form a blot upon the pic
ture, if it were not the picture itself. I
am tempted to ask such readers as are In
terested to get down the dusty volume
and read for themselves the story so ex
quisitely told by Mollere. Nothing will be
easier than to Imagine Richard Mansfield
In the dark role, the gloom of which Is
accentuated by the frivolity about him.
and while this has not. the elements of
durability of his "Beau Brummel" and
the rest ot his roles, It has a high Intel
lectual power and shows him in an in
tensely superior capacity. In his gruff
and testy moments he Is a strong con
trast to the fllnnanev anil -th
around him, and his adoration for - the
xascinaung and coquettish Celimene, who
in the end deceives him, is as fine a piece
of work as Mansfield hnc pv.
Through all this delineation one cannot
tan to ne movea to admiration of the
manner in which Mansfield has followed
to a shade the intellectual thread of the
writer. It could hardly be expected, how
ever, that the rest Of his mninanv nVni
do likewise, and just in this particular

the name of Israel Zangwlll, was the
magnet that drew such a large audience
to the Criterion Theater on Monday night
when Miss Russell and her company pre
sented, for the first time, "Jinny, "the
Carrier," another story of rural England
told In a four-act comedy by that bril
liant Englishman. Mr. Zangwlll has
shown in his play, "Merely Mary Ann,"
his leaning toward the homely side of
life, and the scene is laid this tlmo In the
Essex village of West End, where
"Jinny" Quarles (Miss Russell) lives
alone with her grandfather, who, as his
ancestors before him, had had the monop
oly of a messenger line between West
End and Long Yeoford. When the scene
opens, "Jinny" is running the line alone,
and she makes her appearance behind a
white horse In a conveyance that might
boast of having "come do-.7n" from the
first of her ancestors who attempted the
fetching and carrying business. On the
outskirts of the frog farm belonging to
Caleb Flint and his wife, she meets
their wayward son Will, the role being
naturally undertaken by Oswald York,
less than a year the husband of Miss
Russell. He is returning from Canada,
and after a little frothy conversation
with Jinny in a teasing manner he an
nounces his intention of opening a coach
line to ccoss her route. In the second
act the rival line has become so powerful
that Jinny sees her customers transferred
to the line of Will Flint, and she Is try
ing to conceal this fact from her aged"
grandfather, but, as might be expected,
the neighbors inform him -ot the condi
tions and he takes It very much to heart.
When Will arrives upon the scene he
states that he had no idea of injury to
Jinny's business, and he asks her to re
tire while he talks business with her
grandfather. He proposes a partnership
which Is very satisfactory to the old
man. and when he puts the matter to
Jinny it Is done in such a way that she
misconstrues the partnership offer as

Thrillers for Any Play.

matrimonial. Upon her discovery that
she was mistaken, there Is a quarrel,
which ends In the grandfather vowing
that Will shall never cross the threshold
unless on his hands and knees, and Will
asserts that he will never return until
the old man carries him over In a trunk.
The third act works through a flood In
the valley, and by it Will has lost his
horses and broken his arm, but Jinny's
life has been spared, and she comes In a
boat to the attic of the house where the
family has been driven by the swollen
stream. She has not heard of Will's 111
luck, and teases him about the situation,
which ends in his proposal of marriage.
There Is a delightful love scene, which Is
purely Zangwllllstlc In its simplicity and
In Its directness, and when the engage
ment is practically definite he remembers
his oath to her grandfather, and, as she
cannot be Induced to leave the old man,
they are as far apart as ever. In the
fourth act the point seems quite a bit
strained, notwithstanding the humor of,
the situation, when in starting for Can'
ada Will carries his trunk, with the as
sistance of his father, who collapses near
Jinny's home and goes there to recu
perate his forces. Then Jinny plans a
subterfuge by which Will Is made to trade
his big trunk for her smaller one, and,
bringing him to the threshold, she per
suades him to get Into the -trunk and in
duces her grandfather to drag the trunk
across the threshold.
"Jinny, the Carrier?' Is charming and
genuinely Interesting, but It would be dif
ficult to believe that It will have the tre
mendous success of "Merely Mary Ann,"
which, after running all season In New
York last year, ran ell season In London
this year, and on Monday night Eleanor
Robson opened for a week's run of the
same play at the Harlem Opera-House.
Another event of great importance, es
pecially to the masses of New York City,
was the opening of the Hippodrome on
Wednesday night, but this must wait for
a later issue.

alive with dogwood and wild flowers.
The sweet fragrance of it all Is waft

tranced by this beautiful scene as he
looks from the top of the observatory
1000 feet above the city, and far from
all contamination of the atmosphere.
No one should miss this treat, which
is such a rare one and so little appre

elevator will land you at the top.
