Stellar what was the summer resort like Bella a Hamlet with Romeo left . Y. Sun. A Maude Fealy saw Lula. Conductor stopped train but actress did no to want to get off because the curiosity of an actress delayed a a belated Southern train there Are some conductors South of the Mason and Dixie line who Are watching carefully for miss Maude Fealy says the Bohemian. Recently miss Fealy appeared in Memphis her Birthplace and following her engager ment there the company was booked for Greenville "miss., it seems that a. Small town named Lulu was the Home of her father before lie becama.post-master1 at Memphis and miss Fealy wanted to see it. So when the train left Memphis she asked the conductor to let her know when they reached the station then she settled Down to enjoy the panoramic View of the shortly before noon the. Train was suddenly stopped at what looked like a very a Well conducted farm but what on closer inspection became a Railroad station. Just As miss Fealy discovered the name of Lulu on the door of the depot the conductors voice was heard through foil or five cars crying out the name. Then the cry was taken up by the brakeman until the length and breadth of the train echoed with the word. But no passenger made any attempt to leave. The conductors anger became something Akin to rage when he saw miss Fealy calmly surveying the surrounding country and her fathers former abode with marked though Calm attention. Lulu a cried the conductor almost in her ear. A Lulu a shrieked the brakeman outside her window. I a yes a said miss Fealy a i see the dime of the stator.

A i just wanted to see the town in which my father Quot but the conductor did not wait for the rest of the explanation. He pulled the rope to signal the of Glne a and added another burning chapter to the report of belated conductors. Feuds of actors. Some instances of disagreements among thespians. During a recent performance of a the parisian Model Quot Anna held the Atar and Charles Bigelow the leading comedian quarrelled after the a Pond act. The result Quot of the disagreement was. Itiat hot appear in the third act. The Shubert had engaged him mias held was put out be cause a had decided to leave her company. Dur Las the last performances that George st. Cohan and Ethel Levey his wife gave before she divorced him each of them waa especially careful to preserve a an appearance of Complete cordiality. Many of Ali eur friends knew that a crisis in the form of divorce proceedings was coming but As they played lovers on the stage they save better performances in those Roies rather than. Take chances of ruining the performance by la to Tang the audiences see How they really stood toward each other. The Astor place riots some of the bloodiest that Ever stained tiie streets of new York grew directly out of the troubles which Forrest to american tragedian had with macready., the English actor. Forrest also trouble with Charles Kean another English actor who was contemporary with him. Macready claimed that. Forrest had hissed him from a Box and Forrest in turn charged that Macready Lead hissed me of these actor feuds have bad serious endings. William Terriss. For instance that Fine Quot actor who gave Henry Irving such Fine support was murdered at. The stage door of a London theater by a crazed actor who had Broo ded so. Long upon what he conceived to have been unjust treatment received from Terriss that at length his mind gave Way and lie slew the other player. Bigelow who has just figured in the Anna held figured also in some incidents at the old Weber amp Fields music Hall. When miss held went to Weber amp Fields it was stipulated in her contract t Hai Bigelow should accompany her. She Felt that she could play her scenes better if she played them with a comedian who was accustomed to her method. Peter Dailey and the other nimble witted members of the Wober Fieldian aggregation had no disposition to let Bigelow in easily. On his first appearance they met him with a storm of Impromptu Side. Play that threw him off his Mansfield who makes convincing a love on the stage and who upon occasion at suppers Rafter the theater has entertained whole companies for a Quarter of an hour merely by repeating the a i love you a in different languages and with varying expression has had Many severe quarrels with those actresses with whom he has played love scenes.

It is said he is particularly interested in the american Indian find that to Hopes to make some studies from life when he returns to this country. Interesting bits of news picked up Here and there at the National capital Washington to his hired help Uncle Sam is generous to a degree going Down into his Wallet to the extent of something like $3,000,0uu annually to give them a 30-days�?T Outing at the seashore or in the mountains. Tiibi sum is for the army of employees in Washington alone and does not include the thousands of others who Are on duty and on the payrolls throughout his vast Domain and in foreign countries. Liberal lawmakers decided that ten months each year was Long enough for employees to work and that 30 Days for annual leave. At first this Law Wab for the of Licals and clerks Only and did not include printers Pressman and Navy Yard workmen. Eventually these were Given 15 Days annual leave and finally through hard an persistent efforts the full 30 Days. No sick leave however has Ever been granted them and strange As it May appear they seem to be the Healthiest class of government workers. The government printing office the Bureau of engraving and printing and the Navy Yard Are not classed As Quot hospitals for invalids Quot As the Treasury and other departments Are termed. Not getting pay for being sick those not entitled to such leave manage to remain in extraordinarily Good health and perform their duties with great regularity. So badly abused has been the sick leave Pray allege that at the last session of Congress Wii at appeare/1 to to a determined Effort was made to repeal the Law but the matter was permitted to go Over giving the keep commission and other reformers an Opportunity to make further investigation and secure facts and figures. If one is to judge by the policy of retrenchment and Reform so strenuously carried out by the present administration it is entirely Safe to assert that sick leave will not be Ono of the pickups now enjoyed by government workers after the next session of Congress. There ate in Washington about 31,-, 000 employees of Uncle Sam. The Sal Ary and wages paid will aver $1,200 each male and female. This gives to each individual employee ?100 leave Money and is ready on Call for officials and Perl is any time during the Calendar year but employees of the class stated Are not entitled to leave until the beginning of the fiscal year a july 1. Wilson bars women As pro vate secretaries hereafter Quot women clerks of the department of agriculture will not be permitted to act As private secretaries or confidential clerks for male chiefs of divisions or bureaus. A Sedi chary Wilson has no prejudice against them but be deems it due to them that not one of them be required to perform services that will bring her into such relations with her chief As to enable Evel minded persons to do any gossiping. He considers a it better for the Good name of the women employees in the departmental service to make a Rule that men chiefs of division shall have men is private secretaries or confidential clerks. The fact that the Secretary had prescribed such a Rule for his own guidance has become known recently through his refusal to1 permit a woman stenographer to be detailed As clerk the Flag that floated Over fort Mchenry during the bombardment by the British on the night of september 13, 1814, and a which inspired Francis Scott key when he1 saw it still floating Over the ramparts at Sunrise the next morning to write the a Star spangled Banner Quot is now Lipori exhibition in the Hall of history at the smithsonian Flag which is about 28x30 feet has been loaned to. The institution by or. Eben Appleton of new York for two years upon the personal sol Lelta tin of or Charles d Walcott secret tary of the institution. As the Flag lies draped in the Glass cabe Only one of the Large stars is visible. It is backed by Canvas stated to have been to a chief of Bureau. He is perfectly willing to have the stenographers take dictation from the chiefs of bureaus but he will not allow them to lie detail Etc to. Fill positions the duties of which might require them to remain after the working hours or to go to the Homes of the chiefs to finish work outside of offic hours. Two years ago when there was a a scandal in the department the woman who performed the duties of private Secretary for a Bureau chief for several years was brought into a notoriety altogether displeasing to the Secretary. A majority of the men chiefs do no6 want women in such positions but1 occasionally one i coxes along who Psi so Well pleased with the work done by a particular clerk that he asks to have her promoted and made private Secre. Tary. Requests of that kind Are being refused. Banner that inspired song is now on View placed Quot thiere by ithe. Late Admiral Preble formerly stationed at the Boston Pavy Yard. As Little of the Flag can be seen in its present resting place it is the purpose of the of Licals of the institution to drape it upon one of the Wall of the Hall of history where it can be plainly viewed by the visitors to the building. According to j. A. Taylor of the United states coast and geodetic Survey col. Armstead who commanded fort Mchenry during the bombardment by the British Fleet took the Flag after the rain of shot and Shell had ceased and had it conveyed to his Headquarters. He later gave it to his Mother who was a sister of or Taylor s great great grandma tier.
