Otia Skinner's nsw play "Villon the Vagabond" which he will present at i the oGrand Opera house to-morrow evening is described as a romatic play, reminscent of the sword-clashing. novéis of Doyle and Weyman, dealing with an incident in the life of Francois Villon, the poet of the tifteenth century. The poems of Villon have of late been the object of much research by antiquarians and litterati, who have discovered among them passages of singujar beauty. The personality of the old vagabond poet, novv from a long obscurity, ahould prove an interesting figure in the play, while the episodes of the court of old Charlea "VII. of France, are certainly fruitful iu dramatic effect. The play is very carefully niounted and customed and the company which supports Mr. Skinner is very large and well balanced. The two scholarBhips established In the University last spring by Mra. Clara Harrison Stt-anahan, of Brooklyn, N. Y. in the memory of her father, Seth Harrison, are now represented by two new students- Walter H. H. Ely, of Tarrytown, N.
