The barn. As she looked Emily saw Dodge out of. Night behind the. Side of it s a Little girl of about her own age with a mass of tangled hair and a very tattered . Spencer welcomed Emily cordially and she Felt at Home from the very first. Near by was a Beautiful Lake with a tiny Island right in the Center of it. One Day Emily ventured into a boat a Friend in need. That Lay by the Shore and paddled out to the Island. Lying Down to rest for a few moments she fell asleep and it was late in the afternoon when she awoke. You can imagine How frightened she was when she found that the boat had gone adrift and that there was no Way of getting Back to Shore. While she was wondering what to do she saw approaching her another boat and in it the ragged girl of a a if you Don t mind coming into my boat a said she1 shyly when quite near a i can take a a in a be glad to Quot gratefully replied Emily a and in a much of urged to you for your Emily soon Learned that the Little girls name was ally that she never went to school and that her.

In doing the trick cautions the los Angeles times be sure that your audience Are far enough away to be unable to see the Silken threads. Now say that you will be Ablo to make the eggs leap into the air by magnetizing them with your fingers or course As you move a Finger up Ward and downward the Strell at t in secret of the trick. Cached to the other end of the strand of silk will move up and Down. You can gain a pretty effect by making them Dalce in time to music. Trapping rabbits. Why the proposition of a store keeper did t pan out. A there Are lots of rabbits in the Woods Back of the Rye Field and in be got six Box traps in the barn. If youth see to Mem every morning Well set the traps this proposition made to a l-1-year-�id boy says or. Fred Mather the author of a men i have fished with Quot seemed a Fine proposition and instantly agreed. He was to put the captured rabbits in a bag and the Man who owned the traps was to take care of them. The boy tells the Story. Quot the next night was Clear and Crisp arid Oil How cold that morning was the first trap was unsprung. The second actually held Rabbit. There was the game crouched in the far end. I let the trap Down and for a few moments enjoyed my Triumph v i was a mighty trapper Quot i carefully adjusted the bag Over the trap arid then opened Ltd. There was a. Thud in the Bottom of the bag and then a glimpse of something Gray and a sound of zip zip and if that really was a 1-Abbit it was gone. A the third trap held a Rabbit and with the last failure in mind great care was a taken in arranging the bag but somehow the same thing happened again. The next two traps were empty ans the sixth was sprung. . Quot remembering what Garry had said about a Robbit not biting i put in a hand and brought the animal out some Way memory fails to record How but it does bring a Back the pitiful cries that rang through the Woods. But i hardened my heart and dropped the game in the bag and started for Home with my prize in Triumph not unmixed with other few Lings. Quot after pondering for a while on the escape of the other two rabbits the recollection of those pitiful cries Camo up in full Force. Then i seemed to realize that they came from a poor Terri led arid harmless thing that i was taking to be killed without the excitement of the Hunt. "1 peeped. Into the bag. Two Large eyes and a trembling form were in the Corner. Somehow the grip on the Mouth of the bag was loosened the Bottom Vas turned up and a White Lump of Cotton in a Field of Gray went Bobbing off into the Brush. Flying matches. Little Irene who had just moved to thei country from the City of new York was sitting on the porch with her brother Edgar. They had never seen lightning bugs before so they were surprised when they saw bugs flying and lighting in the air. they Are bugs Quot cried Edgar. A no they re not a declared Irene a they re matches in the air Quot wanted to talk.Quot. Little Tommy is very talkative and on going out to Tea with his father and Mother the other night he was old that rhe speak until somebody Allied him a question. After he had Bat silent for half an hour he could riot stand it any longer and he said Quot i say papa when Are,.they going to begin asking me questions a deception. Two Little girl3 w talking in a Field feared that a cow would attack them. let a go right on and act As if we. Weren t afraid of her at All a Bald one. but Quot remonstrated the1 other a would no to that be deceiving the cow a miss Maxine Elliott i i re r pm a a v a a r a i Quot a a v / a my pm miss Elliott wife of Nat c. Goodwin is to be seen in a new production next season the play is from the pen of Henry v. Esmond the English dramatist and is to he. Called a under the Greenwood the character to be assumed by miss Elliott is that of a will born English woman who wearying of the conventional ties of her leisurely existence becomes it sort of Amateur Gypsy and lives in a caravan. White her Camp is a private estate the owner thereof comes upon it. And a Romance is the result. Price of stage Success. Many stars pay for popularity with their health. Richard Mansfield will not be Able because of the imperfect condition of his health to resume acting for another year at least. Annie Russell has gone to a country place in Maine where with her. Husband Oswald Yorke she Wili kill time till next december. Her health has Given a Way. Fritzl Scheff has. Returned to the stage after an absence of longer duration than would have been the Case Hail her health kept up Olga Nethersole has gone to Switzerland there to recuperate from an illness that almost Laid her Low. Ethel Barrymore whose last tour has been interrupted several times by illness now announces that if her health permits she Hopes to become a la Palma Donna in opera instead of going on As an actress and she is told that she must take the beat possible care of. Her health. True it is that the a Price that is paid for Success on the stage is a High Price. The first places in the profession Are gained at the expense of great physical and mental fatigue to say nothing of the sacrifice of comforts and conveniences. Mental collapse has been the Price that some of the brightest ornaments of the stage have had to pay Maurice. Barrymore whose wit was As keen and flashing As a rapier yielded to death in. A Madhouse. Joseph Murphy sold Compeer Scanlon whose noting in Irish plays brought him a Fortune went insane. The Strain of insanity that ran through the great theatrical family of Booth caused the tragedy or the Muffler of president Lincoln and it embittered the entire life of Edwin Booth. But while the percentage of the actors who have gone mad has been Large it Lias not been so Large As has been the percentage of those who have thrown away the greatest chances that have come to them to become great. Edmund Kean who by Many students of acting is called the greatest actor that. Ever lived was followed a All his life by the Devil Quot of intemperance. It was his intemperance that wrought such evils in the Kean household that it became necessary for Charles Kean the younger to Jeave school and become an. Actor that to might support his Mother. Many actors since the Days of Kean have loved their Battle and Many of these actors have fallen by the Way. Bide in consequence. Now some of a these players never drank at air until they went upon the stage. It is Likely that the y drank afterwards because of the exciting and stimulating influences of the playhouse influences which always re accompanied by and placed in direct contrast with periods of depression and loss of Hope Thomas at rehearsal. How he modified the voice of a Young a a a Singer. Cyril Maude the London interpreter of a the Earl of Pawtucket Quot found his intercom Rise with the author of. The play or. Augustus Thomas an inter Esting experience. A every one in the theater was de voted . Thomas a said or. Maude one evening1 while making rip.

It seemed to fill the theater to overflowing done to you know but it was such a personal. Matter Lifet i hardly Lilied to say anything about it to the actor so i. Consulted or Thomas on the subject. A at Orice he said a done to you worry. Leave it to a accordingly when he was running through his notes with the company at the end of the act and making various Quot suggestions he beckoned to our Friend a with the Beautiful voice and said to him a see Here Laddie this is Only a Small playhouse remember. You had better put a mute on that g string a a the voice has been delightfully subdued fever . There is a tremendous demand for a lats fact by Boot blacking stage folks. James Wjk. Hackett has secured the american rights to so the Blue Bird Quot but the expenses of production re said to be so heavy that it is by no Means certain the play will be seen Here. Perhaps it is not Uri reason Abio to doubt. The dramatic value of a piece that is so largely dependent upon costly stage accessories. A the wrong or.

Some Yeara ago has been revived and turned into a musical play the score of which is by Gustav Kerker the new title of the piece is.

It was too Short notice. 6 a old Uncle Jedi wad so fond of his coppers As to have acquired the reputation in Millville of being a a Fleetle nigh a but he was also fond of creature comforts.
