Mr.  Ignatius Donnelly, the erypto-
gramisl who is trying to convince (he
world  that  Francis  Jlacon wrote the
plays   attributed   lo  William   Shakespeare, is  begt.iiiiig his time in Siral-
fard-on-Avon.   He went in disguise,
\ as if^ fearing the efl'eet that  he might
L have on the good people of Ihe town;
but when he  finally condescended in
I reveal his  personality, Ihe inhabitants
j were  not in the  least  astounded and
[treated him  with  the Utmost inilil'l'ei-
,.ence.      Mr.   Donelly   requested   the
igentlenian who conducted  him around
,the  church   to   leave   him alone at
Shakespeare's  lomb; but  the ubiquitous   reporter must have  been somewhere near, for he immediately cabled
Jo   this   country that   "Mr.   Donelly
Iwept."   Truly a pathetic and inspiring
|«cene,  almost equal  to  Mark Twain
[weeping at  the tomb of Adam.    But
Iwhy did Mi. Donelly weep?    Heeause
[he was sorry for what he had done, 01
because   people   won't   believe   thai
iShakespeare was some other man, or
ic'caiise he thought it   was   Bacon's
