Who Ever heard of animals who pucker lips and and with the shrill shrieks of terror their mammas loudly Call. Because when god has spread his veil of velvet overhead they fear because tis dark to shut their Eves and so to bed Why they enjoy the silence and the rest fullness which seems to pave their easy pathway to the pleas ure land of dreams. The night is just As Safe As any burning.

I thought the elect marvellously Good. The next feature of the entertainment was a Dummy brought in by two attendants and propped up in a chair placed on the platform. It was an outrageous looking affair with straws sticking out at All the joints. My Friend made a few remarks of apology for the Dummy which 1 certainly believed it stating that after All he was merely inter ested in his work As an Art and had had no Opportunity to procure regulation figures.

The effect was tremendous for a moment it seemed As though we id the audience could not believe that the Dummy had Beevi a real live boy All the while and not one of us had guessed it. Then we Rose in a body and amid a storm of applause rounded the Clever ventriloquist and his accomplice. Went into the dressing room Aftel it was All Over Ana helped Taue Dummy apart so i can give a pretty accurate account of How he was Niada up. In the first place the boy was enveloped in a suit of clothes very much too Large for him and the extra space was filled in with Straw. The ends of the trousers and of the arms were gathered together and held with twine. A Large pair of shoes fastened at different angles made feet which seemed utterly lifeless and gloves stuffed with Cotton took the place of hands. A false face cleverly constructed covered the face and a red handkerchief and Large Derby completed tha deception. The false face was made from a piece of cardboard about eight inches Long and seven inches wide Bent into a semicircle. The eyes nose and Mouth were painted in with Ink. If desired the jaw could be easily made to work no and Down. In this Case the lower part of the face must a covered with some dark material so thai it will not show when tha Mouth opens. It is not difficult to acquire a Small amount of skill in disguising the voice and if the attention of i lie audience is attracted in a certain direction it is very ready to believe the sound comes from that direction.

A few engineers of whom sir Beva is Edwards is the survivor composed the party which blew up the docks at Sebastopol. There was a Shaft. Feet deep with a gallery running from it. At the Bottom of the Shaft just inside the Gal Lery stood one of China and a lighted Candle in his hand. The powder was lowered in four barrels and one of these slipped from the slings fell to the Bottom of the Shaft and broke up. So that Gor Don was left standing up to his Knees in Gunpowder with a lighted Candle in his hand.
