MME. MODJESKA, who is playing in New York, has added the part of Lady Macbeth to her repertory. The New York critics declare that the part suits her to perfection, although she acts it on the old lines traced by Mrs. Siddons. She has also achieved great success as Isabella in Measure for Measure." TIIE French papers have revived the story that General Skobeloff, the famous Russian General, is not dead. In Russia he is better known as the White General," and there is a widespread belief in that country that it was merely a man resembling him who was buried. It is stated that the rank-and- file of the Muscovite Army, as well as the peasantry, are firmly convinced that their popular hero had a hand in the last Chinese-Japanese War. His myste- rious disappearance is explained as being due to con- siderations of an international as well as a dynastic character. SEVERAL learned societies are taking steps with a view to preserving a map of Jerusalem in mosaic, which was recently discovered at Madaba, Pales- tine. This was found by workmen while excavating the ruins of an old church about to be rebuilt. The entire pavement of the old edifice was a mosaic map of Palestine, that part containing the city of Jeru- salem being more or less perfect. RAGS for paper making, says Mr. Beadle, have now been very generally displaced by wood. So great is the demand for material, that whole forests are being cut down to supply the enormous requirements of the reading age. In the United States it is estimated that 500,000,000 cub. ft. of timber are turned into paper in a year, and 100,000acres of lumber land are cleared to provide it. The New York Herald takes daily the fellings from seven acres. Wood pulp is imported as such for paper manufacture in England largely from Scandinavian ports. Esparto and rags are prepared from the raw state after they arrive.
