Quot by the Way did you Ever hear the Story of the Fox and the cheese a asked the Pelican paused in ills meal the fish still squirming in his Bill. To Hook his head. A a Crow once stole a piece of very Fine cheese. Flying with it to a tree he was about to eat it when he a Speed or. Reynard underneath the tree. A the Fox. Straightway began to Praise the Crow and at last begged for one of his charming songs. So1 pleased was the foolish Crow with these compliments that he opened his Bill to sing when to the cheese drop Ped from it into the jaws of or.

Acute sensibility much desired on the. Stage. So Many players have been madmen at some period of their careers that it is most difficult to draw the line Between that degree of madness which seems to be necessary to the Constitution of every fiery player and that degree that makes for the Madhouse rather than the Hall of Fame. The elder Booth Joseph scan Lan Maurice Barrymore John Mccullough and others have had a their madness filid them out and have been placed away. Yet other players that Are at Large and acting every night have habits As freakish As some of those which the sure enough crazy actors possess. A i done to want them at ail unless they Are a Little crazy a said a responsible a manager not Long ago. In discussing the actors he intended to engage to play a serious dramatic work. A your stolid phlegmatic fellow is of no use on the stage except to handle . Acute sensibility is a thing much to be desired on the stage. It exists in Many men and women. Many of a those players that do. Not inherit get it by environment. It does not take a Young player Long to pick up the cant phrases and the jargon that pass As language in stagehand. Sometimes he gets Only the sign manual and poses for the rest. But sometimes the footlights and the applause and existence that is his Lead him into dangerous ways. They Tel the Story of.

They choose chorus girls nowadays by the Bertillion system. To such a scientific state of mathematical exactness has the once glorious slap dash Art of the drama advanced. What Chance would Adelaide Neil amp on have for the Back rows if she still wed a. A marrying Mary a Marie a Hium a musical comedy of course is a work of Art and any chorus girl who aspires to it must prove Heiy eligibility with a foot Rule. Moreover such Art commands a salary of $35 per week which is High for chorus girls the top notch of tie Market.

That did Monto Cristo a a tie Metropolis what is going on in new York City told in interesting manner Broadway a bread line will soon be removed new famous Quot bread line Quot will soon disappear from Broadway. Tho bakery which for Many years has nightly Given a Wagon Load of bread to suffering Anil starving pilgrims after the Bells on Grace Church next door tolled the hour of Midnight will be razed in the Spring and the bakery will occupy a larger and More modern building Uptown near Central Park. The a bread line is beyond a question greater new Yorkus sweetest chairity. Many years ago when Fleisch Nunn the wealthy Baker died a provision was found in his will that Quot no Man should to turned away who asked for bread at my As a result the a bread line was established. The bakery is located at Broadway and eleventh Street next to Grace Church with the st. Denis hotel opposite and Wanamaker a a store on the Corner. At nine of clock every night the bread line begins to form and precisely at Midnight a half dozen attaches of the bakery begin to distribute bread and Rolls to sometimes As Many As 500 men and women. And As these almost famished Quot wanderers shuffle up to the door of the bakery with hat in hand or aprons stretched to receive a half loaf of Broad or a few Rolls there is no better place in the world to study human nature for the line is d heterogeneous one every class and Type of humanity is represented from the professional Seggman and tramp to the educated Man and woman who through Adverse circumstances and drink have been reduced to poverty. The sufi King and the compactness of the line remind one of the lock step a the prison penal March and it is Safe to say that Many of the men who walk in the line to get a morsel of food have served time. But that makes no difference. The criminal is As Welcome to the bread As the most worthy Christian. The men in the line Are All strangers to each other. They come from everywhere and All Are too hungry and fatigued to talk. When the bread and Rolls Are Given to the pilgrims in the line they usually hurry Square and devour their frugal meal. When the bakery is removed to the Uptown District the Charity will be continued. It $300,000.000.
