Oscar in Wisconsin |

RACINE, Wis., March 5.--Oscar Wilde made his first appearance before a Wisconsin audience last night.  There were nor more than seventy persons in the hall.  The Racine college lads had arranged to give him a sunflower reception but were deterred by the professors.  The lecture was only marked by occasional snickerings of an unappreciative audience.  He broke down in the middle of his lecture, saying he was exhausted and could not read his manuscript.
