AN HISTORICAL ROMANCE.
Tkt ls.autlful Story of ramn and l'y-thlae--Is

, or Hl.toryT T -
Damon and Pythias" was written by
John Banim over seventy-five years ago
and first presented in London in 1821
and was from the first a great success.
Mr. Enemus is an accompalished ' afctor
and with the help of our best local talent
the production will undoubtedly be a
success. . . . .
THE STORY 07 DAMON AND PYTHIAS.
Tbe story of Damon and Pythias is
older than the wonderful story told by
the evangelists. The beautiful myth,
tradition, or history, it matters not
which it is called, is of an event which
antedates tbe Christian era by a period
. of time about equal to that which inter
venes between tbe discovery of America
by Columbus and the present year.
The reign of' Dionyeius, tbe elder
markets an era of selfishness' in the
world's history. Following the example
of a tyrant, his adherents in the Isle of
Sicily vied in obliterating from the tableB
of their memory every vestige of that
noblest principal of manhood which re
cognizes man's fealty to bis fellows.
Damon, a Senator at Syracuse, by his
opposition to Dionyeius, in his attempt
ed usurpation of power, was placed nnder
sentence of immediate death. Pythias
the time tried friend of Damon, be
sought tbe tyrant to grant him a respite,
that he might bid a last farewell to
' tboso be loved. The denial of bis re
quest was followed by the most striking
exemplification of pure friendship that
has ever illuminatad the pages of history.
I Pi tbias offered himself as a hostage for
Damon while he should visit his wife
and child once more before his execu
tion. The chains were taken from the limbs
of Damon and placed on those of Pyth
wSas, Damon was soon at his home. He
- bade bis weeping wife and little one an
affectionate farewell and calls' for his
horse in order to return in time to redeem
bis pledge to Pythias. He finds that his
horse bas been killed by bis servant in
order to prevent bis return, but he se
cures another horse and flieB to Syracuse.
In tbe mean time Pythias has been
tempted to eecape the doom which seems
to threaten him. Butnol bet insists
upon the terms of the hostage being
carried out to the letter. He exclaims:
"It is sweet to die for those we -love I"
The time is fast passing and still Damon
does not appear. The block is erected,
tbe crowds are gathered in the square,
the -funeral procession is formed, and
Pythias is led forth to seal his friend
ship with his blood. Does he shrink?
No. Does he falter? No. With sol
dierly and iron nerve he wends his way,
cheerfully to die for his friend. In
that moment the clatter of a horse's
hoofs is heard in the distance and soon
Damon falls exhausted at tbe feet of his
friend. This display of manhood and
true courage led captive the tyrant's
heart. Who remitting the death sentence
of Damon, sought admission to their
The Probable Location.
Washington, June 6. The Washing-
ton Post prints some gossip regarding
the probable location of the next nation
al republican convention. San Francisco
is more prominently mentioned than
any city in the race for the next conven
tion prize. The Post is disposed to be
somewhat sarcastic about the chances of
the Pacific coast metropolis. It says in
"Suppose the next national republican
convention should be held in San Fran
Cisco? It is said that Chairman Manley
t is earnest in his advocacy of tbe far-off
" slope city, and General Clarkson is very
pronounced in bis support. Just how
the republican national committee
stands is not so well known.
"San Francisco has sought the conven
tion for many years. She has sent dele
agations across the continent to elo
quently plead with the national com
mi t tees. The lobbies of tLe Arlington
hotel have run red and white with Cal
