FREDERICK WARDIE LAST NIGHT.
IIli Damon and I'ythlaa-Jullna Ciesar on
the Hoards To-Nlght.
Frederick Waidc's appearance last evening
at Turner hall In the play of Damon and
Pythias was deserving of a larger audience.
To an artist of hit finish and ambition ll must
have been depressing Indeed to observe so
little appreciation of the legitimate In our
midst. There were not over 300 present
whereas Turntr hall should have been
crowded. His Damon was a gem In Its way.
His struggles between love of countiy and de-
votion to family were naturally portrayed
particularly in the parting scene between
Hcrmton his wife and himself. The ab-
sence of rant once so common with the mus-
cular actors of a school now rapidly passing
away shows that he has studied the master
pieces of the best authors to advantage. Mr.
Malone as Pythias was well received and
called once before the curtain though It was
difficult to perceive wherein the audience could
perceive any merit worthy si this recognition
Miss Annie Doyle as Calanthe the betrothed
of Pythias grew In favor as the piece pro-
gressed and her fine acting in the scene
where block and headsman awaited her
Pythias was Indeed commendable. It Is to be
regretted that Mr. Warde'a support is not
worthy of his leadership. The contrast is one
very apparent to the audience and must be
trying to Mr. Warde himself. From a glance
at the box sheet for to-night a large attend-
ance Is promised. The play for to-night is
one that never tires the student of Shakes-
peare that of Julius Cesar.

DEATH ON THE RAIL.
AN OLD CITIZEN SEATS HIMSELF ON
AND IS KILLED.
II la Taken to Santa llosa Hospital-Ills
Lags Cut Off and Head Mashed-He
Dies at an Early Hour This
A tenlble accident took place last evening
about three quarters of a mile north of the
depot on the International track. An old
German named Gustav Knaub was the vic-
tim of the accident. He bad been drinking
for some time past and this together with the
weakness of old age had rendered him moody
and captlcious. He seemed very much
chagrined that one of his daughters was about
to marry and had called on Justice Adam to
take steps to prevent it on yesterday morning.
He left here in a wild condition and the last
seen of him was about 7 o'clock last evening
when he was sitting on the track as the train
came bounding in from the North. Thoie
who saw him were too late to avert
the calamity which followed. His
legs were severed by the train being
only held together by the skin and a
few tendons while his forehead was crushed
exhibiting the brains as they protruded from a
cavity where two fingers could he readily in-
serted. A Mr. Baker was the first to discover
him as he got out with his lantern above the
sitcb. He was placed to one side of the
track for a few minutes till a special could be
immediately sent out to bring in the injured
man. ur. Her II and several others went out
to aid the victim. He had apparently no
pulse when first lound though some more
promising symptoms were shown as he was
carried back to the depot. From here he was
conveyed to the Santa Rosa hospital. Dr.
Herffdld all that human skill could devise tn
soothe the pains of the unfortunate old msn as
he was convinced from the first that ih
case mast terminate fatally and in a
brlel space. Alter much suffering the In
lured man expired this motniuit at 1 nVWIr
Judge Adam holds an inquest this afternoon
at half past 3 o'clock. The deceased leaves
a wife and three children one of them the
wife of Mr. Michael Russl. He was 75 years
om and was known to many here while en-
gaged in the vegetable business. It should
be remarked here that the train which ran
over him was nearly two hours behind time
ana perhaps the old man living for years
near the depot and acouainted with It. ir.tn
schedule had set him down thinking that he
woum rest awhile unconscious of the speedy
coming 01 me Delated train.

ton yesterday where he will be placed under
medical treataent. He was accompanied
by Surgeon P. Middleton and Lieutenants
.wgcr. ana uorst. There is something
almost painfully trap Ic in the sudden illness of
General Mackensle. He came here amoog
the many friends he had made here a few
years ago during the bordertroublcs-he came
back to their circles and their welcome greet-
ing with Increased military rank and seemed
to be almost at the pinnacle ol a soldier's and
a gentleman's aspirations. To add still
further to his sudden misfortune he was to
have been martled here just one week ago
to-day.. And now "like sweet bells all
jangled out of tune" his mind is reft
him his reason dethroned. The public can
still find a current of relief howerer from the
statement ol his phyiicun that his malady is
peihsps only Umporary and that a change ol
scene and Ihe companionship and lender
ITi:es of hit old army comrades at Washing-
ton may tend tn soon rehabilitate him.
