ANECDOTES  OP IRVING.  On Sir Heiny Irving's first visit  lo .San Francisco he fell so much in  love ��������� with the Bohemain Club that  he gave every member a life pass to  Ihe Lyceum theatre in London, and  when he sold' trie Lyceum a few  years ago * he stipulated that the.Bo-  lieniain passes should he honored as  long as the theatre siood. ���������  living's reception at the Bohemian  Club     was iv weird as it was novel.  He was escorted  to the  dining-room  by a club  member made up as Cardinal Wolsey.    in the dining hall       a  stager had  been ejected. On the stage  stood George     Bromley,  the       high  priest, who conducted Irving through  a lidiculously funny ritual.  Suddenly  there appeared on       the  vmg asked  kim his,  terms.  "Your    terms  are  mine,"   replied  the young composer.   Whereupon  Irving turned to  Brain  Stoker,        who  was standing  by,  and asked'  ''How  much  did   you  pay   Sullivan  and Mackenzie'.-'"  Both  these  coin posers   had   reached  the top of  the ladder and       were i e-  cciving enormous   prices  for       the'-r  compositions.    When   Irving  was told  the price, he said  to German'     ''  "You  will  receive  the  same."  *   *   +  It is always said of Irving that lie  never required more  of  the memhcis  of his company than he had a right  to expect in  proportion  to   the   salary paid.

Tho     orchestra meantime had    accompanied   this  scene' with   piaiiissi-  talent, and he paid accordingly. One  tlay when superintending Lyceum rehearsals a super intensely annoyed  him. The super had one lino to say  which was: "The enemiy are upon us",  The tone of vo.ee this''super assumed saon got on  living's nerves.  "Kor heaven's sake," h?
