The stage baby is thrust upon the stage As soon of it Cun walk Ana understand that it must not cry. In the morning instead of being sent to school like other children it is taken to the theater to rehearse its at night it is not allowed to sleep and build up a Constitution for after life but the weary puppet must go through its tricks before a crowd of whom it is afraid. The stage baby is forced to do without food for Many consecutive hours to be up late to face storms endure cold and fatigue to tax its memory and to be beaten if it forgets. The applause of a Large audience so Gratifying to men and women is simply terrifying to a child. The stage baby leads the life of grown people undergoing the hardships of the hardest profession in the world without any of the compensation which older theatricals experience such As Money gifts applause and celebrity. The Rew aril of a stage child is abuse. Its education is begun in fear Aud perfected by blows. If a child Falls from a horse in the circus it is beaten. If it fails to perform a feat properly before an audience it is made to repeat until it does accomplish it though at the peril is most severe. Their limbs Are tortured into difficult and unnatural positions when being taught dancing and acrobatic exercises. There is no innate Talent for or love of acting in any stage baby that which seems like Talent to the Public is simply the result of severe training begun Long before the child understands anything but that it must obey orders on pain of punishment they Are taught exactly As animals Are taught through fear of tie whip. Girls being More tractable than boys Are preferred in Heaters in the circus where physical courage is required More than docility boys Are usually the infant prodigies. There is never any playfulness freshness nor gaiety of childhood in stage babies. They Are men and women of smaller growth As they say themselves a old before they Are the stage baby a theatrical life is one of fear of punishment in the morning of the audience at night the lights the Bustle noise Aud confusion behind the scenes. When the a White Fawn was in course of rehearsal a few years ago in new York numbers of children were daily for six weeks kept swinging five and six hours in the air As Angels. Of one occasion a Little girl fainted from want of food and fatigue she fell from the framework which supported her and broke her Arm. During the sumo Winbur a vary a of a vorp one a Bov aged eight had a part to play at the then new Ork theater. He appeared Only in the earlier scenes which left him time to undress and dress for the Street in Rev to n i blog sundress and dress again for the transformation scene in which his sister aged six also appeared. The curtain never fell till Midnight after which,.hand in hand these two stage babies waded through the snowy deserted streets to the extreme limits of the City arriving at Home about two of clock in the morning there to nod in chairs by the Side of a bed Ridden Mother a widow whom they supported on their hard won pittance fifty cents or at most a Dollar a night. The play of a a Pizarro contains a stage baby. The youngest child that can walk �4-selected, because its Mother says a i am sure he will speak it is a very disagreeable and trying part for a baby. Every body Cora Pizarro Alonzo and the soldiers in turn pull drag and twist it about. Rolla frequently see leg it by the hair of the head nearly scalping it he bawls in its ear froth in its face and slobber Over its Little naked Shiv bring bosom. He jerks it off its feet and by Oue Arm slings it Over his shoulder where it must strike an attitude in air held by one Arm. It dares not cry when he frightens it by sprinkling false blood on its face nor when still holding it by the Arm he rushes at Breakneck Speed across a shake Ling Bridge with shonts confusing it and shots flying fast and thick. The Bridge crossed he tosses the baby Down anywhere behind the scenes rocking not if he Breaks every Bone in its tender body he thinks Only of staggering on the stage and dying effectively. The blood the danger flight Pursuit and shouts Are All real to the stage baby and mental distress is this added to physical pain. 1 when children Are not available dwarfs play their parts. A very heavy Thicket but remarkably Small Dwarf was once obtained to act the child in a Pizarro a a usually called Quot Rollas child a though Pizarro is the father and Cora the Mother. That a the proper parentage. The audience noticed nothing strange about the Dwarf except that he was a trifle heavy for a Chi Idaho was expected to a speak he spoke Booner than his theatrical Mother an for when Rolla seized him and Flung atm with some difficulty in air he grasped the actor by the hair in wrap Ped him it a the manner known As a pick Aback a and in a deep Gruff voice uttered an oath that curdled the blood of the ladies present and roared out a if Yon let me fall i h kick you to More recently e Dwarf was engaged to play a child a part in a drama of Enoch Arden. In the course of the play an actor inquired Bow old he was. He should have replied a four instead of which he gave his own the actor was Danio founded for a no ment but recovering himself be patted the Dwarf on the Back and gazing intent la into the old weakened face he said f a you look it me boy you look a Little girl was sent on the Stogie to play Fleance in Macbeth. Forrest was the Star. He had placed on a Small table at the a a Wing or Side scene a cup of something to wet his Throat with when1 be came off the child stole up Aud finding the beverage palatable drank it As. One had just time to squeeze Between two fits when he can tearing up for his Drift and seeing the cup empty began to stamp atud1 rage As Only Forrea t could lie Tison to at Eta Sefong men a women in his How terrible he appeared to this pilfering stage baby she thought be was the veritable giant smelling tho blood of a Little Girt and that her grinder Bones would make his bread. Farther and further she shrank Back out of sight but not of curing. The prompter blew his whistle. The scene in being shoved Forward took her with it and rolled her on the stage. The shout which followed frightened her still More and she took to her heels rushed out of the theater fled through the dark streets in her boys Highland costume leached her Home and hid herself in the Kitchen cupboard where she was found hours after nearly mad with terror and half suffocated. Tho child a nervous system was shocked by tho fright and Ever since that time she declares she has been a in a hurry All Over a or nervous. A certain actress with a child in arms used to take it to the theater with her every night and make it a bed on two chairs of the actresses walking dresses. Mrs. Merry Wood was prevailed on by a gentleman to give him a glimpse behind the scenes he supposing it was a species of fairy land. Grant was cd pain Browne a astonishment and bewilderment As he stumbled no against piles of scenes in the dark dismal labyrinth. A a Flats scenes were suddenly pushed against him pinning him to the Wall Sceno shifters swore at him for getting in the Vay a Sopes a representing the invading army ran him of its life.

A Down and nearly trampled him under foot actors brushed so Vleig by him the prompter shouted at him not to Block up the wings or entrances tho Call boy bawled in his ear and the property Man thrust a lighted Torch in his face. Fearing his awkwardness would bring a reprimand on her for introducing a stranger behind the scenes during a performance mrs. Merry Wood eat him in a chair in a Safe place and enjoined upon him not to move from it until Bhe came Back she being called to appear of the stage. In this particular theater the dressing rooms were up several flights of stairs so the actresses had had some scenes stood up like screens behind which they dressed. Those who know How rickety everything is in Heaters touch not taste not handle not Captain Brown was utterly ignorant of theatrical mysteries and insecurities and for a while sat quietly where mrs. Merry Wood Iliad placed him outside the temporary dressing room then he tilted his chair Back against a a painted Ocean a immediately behind which reposed the sleepy baby. At the same moment from afar the a heavy Viii Ian hearing his a a Cue Given to appear came tearing along with his false whiskers in his hand. The stage was waiting for him stage wait stage wait the words ran around. Wondering what that meant Brown tilted his chair further Hack to give the actor room to pass. He Overba Lancus urm Seir me Ocean gave Way it was touch and go with everything scenes chairs Man stage baby and All. Brown fell Flat on his Back and Lay waving his feet in air and crying for help for the baby had been thrown three feet off and buried Butler a Hill of Canvas and Brown on top Cfall. The child a screams struck terror to the heart of its Mother on the stage lighting her Virgin troth to the youth at ter Side who Felt for her being a family Man himself. With an answering shriek tho darted be bid the scenes followed by sectors super scene Shii ters and Sony of the spectators who scrambled Over the foot lights shouting a fire fire a a terrible uproar succeeded. The manager went on the stage and tried to quiet the alarmed audience. In vain there was a general Stampede though to lives were la St not even the infant. It was uni Njuty and so was the Captain who says he ddn to like to think How near he once come to killing a stage baby. A ancient time pieces. Bowls were used to measure time from which water drop by drop was discharged through a Small aperture. Such bowls were called water clocks Clepsydra it was then observed How much water from such a bowl or cask from Sunrise till the shortest Shadow trickled Down into another bowl placed beneath and this time being the half of the whole solar Day was divided into six hours. Consequently they took a sixth of the water which had trickled Down poured it into the upper bowl and this discharged one hour had expired. But afterwards a More convenient arrangement was made. They observed How High the water at each hour Rose m the Lowes bowl marked these Points and counted them thus finding out How Many hours there were till Sunrise. With the chinese the water clocks or Clepsydra Are very old. They used a round vessel filled with water with a Little Hole in the Bottom which was placed upon another vessel when the water in the upper vessel pressed Down into the lower vessel it subsided by degrees announcing thereby the parts of time elapsed. The babylonians Are said to have used such instruments from them the greeks of Asia Miner got them at the time of King Cyrus about the year 550 before Christ. But the romans did not get the first water clock before the year 160 before Christ Betti though the hours of the Clepsydra did not vary in length they still counted them from the morning. When the clock with us strikes seven the ancients to muted one when the clock with us strikes twelve the ancients counted six and so Forth. This method of Eon uting the hour was according to the new testament also customary in Palestine at the time of Christ. The water docks had that advantage that they could be used in the night and the romans need them to Divide their night watches which were relieved four times both summer and Winter. Coto for Mably to these four night watches time was Conn Tedy not Only in Rome hut where Ever roman garrisons were stationed consequently also in Palestine after she Hod become a roman province. The first night watch was called a Vespera a evening from Sunset to "9 of clock the second a Media nor a Midnight from of of clock to 2 of clock the third a Gall icing us a cock crowing from 3 to 3 of clock end the fourth a mane a morning from 3 of look to and Jav cite. The Story of an Amateur boil Gigli ter. A distinguished mexican gentleman told us one Day of his experience at bullfighting in one of the larger cities of the Republic. It is the ens Tom in Bill fight ing Conn tries for the Yoang bloods of the first families who wish to distinguish themselves to appear in the Plaza a Toros As Amat Enra on important occasions and fight the Bull. On such occasions the Amateur is usually allowed a companion who is posted in the ways of the ring and is called a the Padrino directs the Amateur How to carry on the fight and in fact acts As his Chaperon Ana next Friend throughout out acquaintance was crowded into the fight against his will but i will let him Tell it himself As he told it to is. A i said a no no the Bull has done me no insult a Yon Are a Brave Yonne Man and want to make your Way in the world and to popular with the ladies it is better that Yon begin now that Yon hate so Good time and fight the Ball so 1 let them put my name on the Bills. Well i liked this matter not very much at All but i could not get out of it and so they kept me in. When the Day comes i went in with my Padrino and said to myself when 1 see the Bull a i will keep Over of the other Side and let the others do the but aftera time the audience began to get excited and to encourage me on Bev commenced to throw oranges and such trifles at me pretty Lively. Then my Padrino comes no to me and he says a a look you this will not do Virv Well at All if you do not fight the Bull there will be a Row and it is better that you do not disgrace yourself a a so i told him i will fight the Bull sooner As to Dodge my head All the times from the oranges an bananas which the audience throws at me. He looked at my Saddle and said a a the Clinch is Loose and it is better that Yon get off and let me tighten it before Yon go into the a a so i got off and stood by the Side of my horse looking at him to Clinch him tighter. This time i was stooping Over and saw not the Ball which i was thinking was on the other Side of the ring. As i so Tood i Teel myself lifted up into tho air and when i came Down the Bull was on my top tramping me and using his Boms on me so that when they got him away i could not Stadd and was confined to my bed for six weeks. A a then they told me when i was Well again that the judges had awarded me the highest prize because i had expose myself so bravely to the Bull and not try to get out of the Way when he come for me. A a i said a that is All very Well a was always a Brave Man and care not much for fent tie Possea Fet 10>e but. Out Nave and decided that when Yon recover and the Bull should recover you should fight it Over once More Aguin together. Yon Aro Well and the Bull is very Well a i said no i have no desire to Hurt the Bull. He has receive much aggravation and i forgive him for what he did do to me a they said that Inch language would not do for the judges and if i did not like to fight the Bull again i was disgraced for life and it was better i should leave the cite that evening. Now there was ayoung lady there which i thought of very much and i concluded it was better to fight the Bull than to Loose the lady. A a when we went into the ring again i see the Bull looking very mad Ana ugly Aud i concluded i would go Over on the other Side and wait a Little while probably he might get better matured or afraid to come at me. But pretty soon the people they commenced to encourage me with fruit and such things As i done to eat and cry out to me to go in and fight the Bull at once or come out of the ring. So i told a Padrino i would fight him a Little but to not feel very Well. He said to is better you should throw the Bond Arillas into the bulls neck. I will attract the attention of the Bull and when you Are ready to throw you Call out and a will jump a i said f would do so. And my Padrino went up to the Ball and begun to dance around before his nose. Then i ran up to throw the Gandarillas but i was so excited that i have forgotten to Call out to him to get out of the Way and when i let them go they strike him in the Back instead of the Bull. Then my Padrino he Bellow louder As Ever the Bull should do and began to dunce like a Tarantula and catch at the Gandarillas. At last he got bold of them and Tore tho barbs out of his flesh. Then he runs Over to me and pulls me Down and begin to beat me Over the head and the Back Tith the Flat Side of his sword and his foot and he says a a look Here you now it is better before we go any further that one thing shall be understood immediate. Are you the Padrino of me or the Padrino of the Kulir he was so very angry that i could not say an explanation and so i told him i would go Home for i like not the sport and it might make is bad friends or something if we kept on. Some of the oranges and apples and things which they thrower at Moas a went out were very solid and a left the town that night since then t have had no quarrel with the hulls and i like not to Huv Etoy More.

The French a a Pigeon Post Lias recalled attention to a subject that Lias Long bad a deep interest for naturalists the Power or instinct animals exhibit of finding their Way Back to a spot from whence they May have been taken by a Road never before traversed by them. Pigeons carrying messages or returning Long distances to their a cotes a most certainly find their Way Back by it eans of sight. This is evidenced by the fact of the Long training required Ana their inability or disinclination to Fly during a fog. But this Means of finding out a Distant locality cannot Epply in the cases we Are about to record. At Vanc Otiver a Island gentleman had a House Oil one Side of Esquimalt Harbor wherein he Aud his family resided. They had a favorite cat which was always made a great pet it so happened that the owner of the House Hod occasion to change his residence to the other Side of the Harbor. The distance in a straight line was quite a mile while to reach the House by making a circuit of the Harbor a distance of quite for Miles must be travelled and that through a Deuse Forest of Pines thickly under grown with Brushwood when the family removed from Ofie House to the other Pussy was fastened Mccurley into a Basket and taken in a boat across the Harbor and was not let out of her prison until she was secured in a room at her new residence. It is quite Clear in this Case the cat could not have seen anything of the route followed by water from House to House. Strange As it May seem she made her escape during the night and when on tho Day following her removal some of the family returned for articles left behind there was Pussy somewhat dirty and tired but in perfect safety. Now she could Only have re relied the old residence in two ways either by swimming the Harbor which is by no Means probably or she found her Way through the Forest where she had never been before and through thick underbrush without any Trail or path to guide her and what makes the matter far More wonderful is the fact that the cat must have passed close to an Indian vill Hige round which a Large number of half wild dogs were always prowling. There is another Story of somewhat similar character told of u cat which i believe Well authenticated. A when says the writer a a at four puts Clarendon Jamaica i wanted a eat and had one Given to me which was nearly full grown it was brought from Morgan s Valley estate where it was bred and had never been removed from that place before ? the distance was five Miles. It was put into a Canvas bag and carried by a Man on horseback. Between the two places there was two Rivers one of them eighty feet Broad and two and a half deep running Strong the other is wider and More rapid hut less deep Over these Rivers Are no Bridges. The cat was shut up at for paths for some Days and when considered to be reconciled to her new dwelling she was allowed to go about the House. The Day after obtaining her Liberty she was missing and upon my next visiting tho estate she was bront from i was quite amazed to learn that the cat had come Baek again. Did Bhe swim Over the Rivers at the Fords where the horse came through with her or did she ascend the Banks for a considerable distance in search of a More shallow place and where the Stream was less powerful ? at All events she must have crossed the Rivers in opposition to her natural i myself once had a favorite Spaniel called sport tie was Lent to a Friend who came to fetch him. Sport was placed in a dog cart and driven to my friends residence a distance of Over Twenty Miles. The cart was so made that air could freely get in for the dog to breathe hat by no possibility could univ part of the Road he seen during the journey. On his arrival sport was tied no with a Ropo under the Manger in the stable.
