It is constructed entirely with the aim of winning certain prizes for scholarships with which a costly University bribes men to come to it for education for class lists leading up to College fellowships forthe lucrative posts of Militar and civil service. In All these but most of All where the universities can determine the ordeal one principle of Aue Cess has been established mud that principle in one sided nees. The candidate for India for Woolwich for Coopers Hill must at an Early age select certain subjects and throw overboard All the rest. The childish aspirant to the Entrance scholarships of a Public school is placed in the hands of a Crammer at eight years old that lit thirteen he May turn out latin verses As a buddhism prayer Mill turns out prayers and Manv Manifest to a distinguished head master has lately said to the Eye of a teacher searching for intelligence thoughtfulness Promise i tenseness Quot a stupidity which is Aliso lately appalling.

The universities have stamped upon All the schools one deep certainty that for a boy to be Quot All around a As it is called is the Irre visible sin that a schoolmaster who teaches with reference to intellectual growth and Width of culture sacrifices thereby All Hope of the distinctions Whit make a school famous and increase us numbers.

It was to be produced at Christmas anti it wanted but three weeks of that time when Shopland the Lessee suddenly sent to me to say that Furlong who was to do the great somersault scene had broken his leg at rehearsal. The whole play turned upon the incident of the a Reat Lump and without it the piece would have been like Quot Hamlet with the Princess part omitted. Shopland was bound by heavy penalties to the author to produce his work on boxing night and therefore wrote to my to say a substitute for Furlong must be got and that within a week at the outside. I was carefully posted in All that was going on in the provinces. It was my Especial business to by on the watch for rising Talent so i instantly remembered the account i had heard of a wonderful fellow at Dumbo rough. What was required now was a Rara compound histrionic Talent limed to thews and sinews an acrobat who was also a Roscius and Here he was on my list. Not a Tew of the stars on the London boards owed their position to my introduction and shop land a bringing out. So i wrote to him to say he should have what he wanted and in another hour i waa in a Aret Elasz Carriage on the Greet Western Lina for i foresaw in or. Reginald Calverton of the Dum a theater done Teddy Hearty Roux miss Collingham had just come on. One look at her was sufficient to explain her popularity. I had Seldom seen upon the stage a face and figure More striking. It was such a Good lace too not merely handsome and regular in feature but thoroughly Good. Her Large Brown Eves were honest As the Day when she smiled it was with a rank heartiness that inspired Confidence almost Friendship at first sight. As my Box was so close upon the stage i Eon id watch her narrowly. It occurred to me at once that if to her splendid gifts of Beauty were added the smallest scintilla of Talent she might certainly be developed into a Complete theatrical Suc cell Al. I had gone in search of one thing and had tumbled quite by Chance upon another of infinitely greater value. Bhe spoke. Her voice was Sweet As a Silver Bell reminding me much of the tones with which miss Helen Faucit Vears ago kept her audience unchained. She made her Points Well her intonation was clearly marked and her grasp of the character she was playing such As it was intelligent not to say original. Her movements and her pose too were Graceful whilst she used her hands with great effect. Quot Shell do a i said to myself a a Nhes a Nugget to be dug up and removed from the play proceeded. The Man this Young Calverton whom i had come Down on purpose to see performed one or two curious Semi acrobatic teats which were clearly interpolated to show Oil his tremendous vigor and activity but his acting wan not bad and i 9aw lie would quite serve a purpose in the emergency. I stayed on weary As i was however in my Stuffy Little Box to see the last piece a dreary burlesque solely for the purpose of watching miss floppy who of course was in it. Patiently i listened through an act or interminable length to commonplace periods and puns spoken in the most commonplace tones till the whole performance growing More and More monotonous and dreary assumed at length a shadowy unsubstantial character and i seemed to lie gazing up out of the narrow aperture of my Box which was just on the level of the stage at a party of desperately Dull ghosts Piny tag a phantom show behind a dark and mis Boyal the Man for my i1. Borough Money. Dumbo rough Calls itself a City it has a Castle a Cathedral and a town Hall the Castle is 1r ruins the Cathedral Woald be better for restoration and the town Hall would not be missed if it were pulled Down altogether. In half the streets of the place you might get in summer a very decent crop of grass there were shops but no one seemed to buy nor did the tradesmen appear anxious to sell. There was Only one big Caravanserai of an inn the old coaching inn for Dumbo rough was upon one of the main London roads hot the business it did was the Mildest like the Beer at its tap.

They Board and capture a turkish merchantman and a girl is made a prisoner�?1 play the girls i am kept a close prisoner in the captains Cabin and subject to Gross insult which Jack Tarson overhears Ana Breaks into the Cabin to my Rescue. At this interruption there a a lot of business and the Captain drags me to an inner hiding place and secures me. Then there is a struggle the Captain gets the worst of it. Tar-900 escapes from the Cabin just As assistance arrives. He makes for the rigging and commences to climb with a vague Hope of escaping certain death at the hands of the Quot up the rigging to be sure a All this was terribly familiar. I seemed to have but just Beard in Quot go on go on miss Collingham i said anxiously. Quot he is pursued Fred at from the deck a Hall strikes him in the leg still he climbs higher higher then gets out upon the Mainyard. There Are real practicable masts and Yards on the stage you will see them and there a More Light was breaking in upon me. All this fatter business 1 had heard described actually described before but when ? Ltd a _ at this moment the Call boys words Quot miss Collingham called a interrupted As so in some agitation i went with her Down to the Wing. There was a carpenters scene on in front and behind it was set the tableau of the evening. I Tom fest Quot a i knew it of course there and my Eye fell at this moment on a Large Feather bed Laid ready to receive the Man / As he would reach the ground the com 1 arrangement for such stage business. A a come with me a i continued hurriedly Quot it is a Case of life and death. Come Down below to the Mazareen floor. Done to hesitate my Dearest Riri Pray come Quick come a and i literally dragged her with me Down a narrow staircase which my familiarity with such places told me led to the floor beneath the stage. Meanwhile above the excitement rapidly increased. 8hot followed shot shouts Ana answering cries of Defiance. The whole strength of the Little company was crowding the Winters at the front entrances to keep up by their United voices that Buzz and hallo oing indicative of general excitement incidental to sensational scenes of this nature. T a Sharp yell of despair now Rose above al1 ,. A Quot that a when he gets his wound a said floppy Quot in a moment he will take the great jump. But what on Earth Are you bringing me Here for a Quot where is the trap where is the trap a i cried in an agony As we reached the dimly lighted vault like floor beneath the Star. Quot there is a trap surely just under where the bed is lying a hinge trap i heard them say made for a special purpose last Christmas. Quick Quick run on and show in the next second we gained the spot. My worst surmises were realized it was wide open the Flap of the trap Hung Down and the Feather bed on which the actor was to alight w As now supported Only by a couple of thin laths and thus therefore masked a yawning Gulf. The Devilish intention had been of course tit at Calverton a longing bar Airt into this should mutilate or perhaps kill himself among the machinery of the lower floor. This was the plot i had overheard m a dream As i had at first thought but it was a waking horrible reality and it w As All visibly before me again now just As i had actually watched and heard the two ruffians concocting the Means on tic stage the night before when Long after the performance was Over Liev imagined they had the theater entirely to themselves. The Young villain Dunkley goaded to desperation by his rivals Success w Ith floppy and having Access through his wealth and position As the mayors son behind the scenes had bought Over the Carpenter to Compass Calverton a destruction. These facts flashed through my mind like lightning and the whole action in which i was now engaged took place in h Quarter of the time it takes to recount. I w As in a fever of agitation. Mas Collingham was also beside herself with terror at the sight of the open trap. But i called to her to keep up her courage. Quot now now there a Nota moment to Lcy a come under it a i cried Quot and help me to raise our United strength easily brought it into position and 1 was about to shoot the Bolt when thud Down came the whole weight of a Man upon my uplifted arms. But bravely had the Sweet girl in an instant foreseen the situation Andy Aliffi culty. Her arms were raised also to Aid me in resisting the Shock and our United strength was Suffi Hent to prevent the bed from slipping through the trap. The first Jar of the fail being thus broken we gently lowered the trap and lowered the bed with Calverton on it m safety to where we stood. Quot this a Ere a All along of the youngsters being so arbitrary about seeing of it for himself. If head a left it to me nobody a snowed nothing about it a Stead of which what does he do Bat hides himself and stays Here until everybody a gone to so plam to me what to do just As t who have been stage Carpenter Man great iwas struck with it Novelty and ingenuity it of his whom Afat Terrhi the month of seam a cd the moot lib h Grant the a a Oon gation to of tee Millen Hom the or a Bomfa according to eel Jim Niter Tia hat treachery suddenly a by although these vague a aim pails recollections continued to surge i cough my brain i a Hnz med them or i a ought to do so As the mysterious Vij Tiras of a dream that has but lately fled.
