Dr. Robert Morse, a Presbyterian minister of Washington D.C., in the delivery of a lecture at Hiawatha on "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" Saturday night, was so overcome by the power of his impersonation of Mr. Hyde, that he could not proceed with the lecture and the audience was dismissed. A correspondent says of the circumstances: "In changing from Dr. Jekyll to Mr. Hyde, he quickly disordered his flowing locks, crooked every bone in his body, held his breath until his face was red and distorted, and then limped about the pulpit, snarling and snapping like a wild beast. He will attempt to give the lecture again on Tuesday night."
