[From The llt-ralil Corn s|*oinl-siil j
Aa waa expected, tlie St. Kugene Min-
ing company ia steadily employing more
men, until In a abort time a full force
will be employed, and the mine tie in
full blast. Fur a abort time there waa a
abut down, only 40 or 50 men being employed, but in a few dnya the milt wu
opened up and run in thc daytime. Laat
Monday it waa decided to run the tingle
liift In tbe daytime and work tbe tame
men half a night shift three nlgbti a
week. The ore for tbe mill ia being obtained from tbe large dump below the
Lake Shore No. 1 tunnel. Thus, although Moyie may be comparatively
quiet for a abort time, in a few weekt it
is expected that everything will be in
full swing and Moyie resume her place
as one ofthe livliest towns 00 the Crowa
Nest Pass railway,
Directly acroia the lake from tbe town
on one of the creeks which flow down
the mountain side, Frank Guidon and
some companions are placer mining.
They have built a sluice, aud although
as yet only a short distance below the
surface, have some colors and every indication of a paying proposition when
they strike bed rock. They are steadily
pushing on tbeir work and are confident
of having a good^thing. Thia will nuke
Moyie not only a lead and silver mining
town, but also a gold producer. Thus,
with mines and lumber, Moyie haa as
good, or better backing than any town
in the Kootenays.
Harold Pollard, the contractor, has
now nearly completed the dam on Campbell creek and has every reason to feel
proud of bis work. The place in which
the dam is located was a hard one to
work in on account of the deep gully,
but where there ia a will there is a way,
and Mr. Pollard found one. The structure is built of immense cedar timbers,
firmly wedged into the solid rock, so
that such a thing as a break away ia iut
of the question. The reservoir is a large
one, conais'ingof a natural basin, the
outlet being between two high walls of
rock, and across this opening the dam
has been built. Work on laying the
pipe will in a few days commence, and
in a short time the town will have a
water system of which it may be justly
Last week an Immense boom of logs
belonging to Park, Mitchell & Co, were
taken from near thc mouth ofthe Moyie
river down to the sawmill at the northern part of tbe towu. The logs are of
the best and will wake very fine lumber.
The mill which has been thoroughly
overhauled has now started and the
prospects are bright for a good season's
work. The machinery for Grant &
Sheady'a will ia expected in a short time
aud on ita arrival work on thc milt will
at once commence, ao aa to be ready for
operations by the first of June.

Last Sunday evening the Odd Fellows
of Wildey lodge, Moyie, attended divine
service in a body, Rev. G, B. Grigg
preached an able sermon 00 Friendship,
Love and Truth. The hall was tastefully decorated and appropriate music rendered by the choir. About 35 Odd Fellows were present, which was a good
representation considering the number
of members how away from town.
On Kmpire day, May 24, the Independent Order of Foresters of Moyie, intend

The Annual Services Were Held
Sunday at the Presbyterian Church.
Last Friday was the -Band anniversary
of Odd Fellowship ou the American continent, and tbe members of Key City
Lodge, No. 42, of Cranbrook, celebrated
the occasion that evening in a most fitting manner. A short session of the
lodge waa held aud then tbe goat v. as
locked in the dark cell, the doors thrown*
open to admit the families and friends
of the members. It was a large gathering and a happy one. Noble Grand
Rockendorf was In tbe chair, and iu
presenting tbe numbers of the short
piogram prepared, be waa assisted by
Vice Grand Leitch. Miss Rhoda Leitch
gave an instrumental solo, Mrs. W. T.
Reid sang aud Mr. W. T. Reid gave several selections on bis gramaphone, Rev,
Fortune had been selected to deliver the
address for the occasion, and be spoke
most entertainingly on tbe subject of
Odd Fellowship.
Afler the close of tbe program elegant
refreshments, which bad been furnished
by the ladles, were served. When tbe
dishes had been cleared away, several
ofthe members aud visitors were called
upon for two minutes' talks, and theu
an adjournment was taken. Tbose
preseut all voted tbe evening a most enjoyable one, aud those who wero not Odd
Fellows thought tbat it was well (0 be a
member of the order.
The Aaaual Service.
The annual service of the Odd Fellows
of Cranbrook was held last Sunday afternoon at ibe Presbyterian church, Rev.
Fortune, who is a member of Key City
lodge, of tbis city, preaching the sermon.
The members of the local lodge aod
other members of tbe order gathered at
the lodge room at 1:30 to lhe number of
43. William Small waa appointed aa
marshal of the parade, aud a double line
was formed in accordance to tbe rules of
tbe order, and the line of march taken
up for the church. Seats had been reserved for tbe members, and led by Rev.
Fortune, with the collar of chaplain on
bis shoulders, ihey entered the church
and took tbe places assigned to them.
Music had been specially provided for
(be occasion, and the service throughout
was a very impressive one. The pastor
spoke of Odd Fellowship and the rein
tiou of the order to humanity in general,
aod said In language mast emphatic that
no church or member of a church should
criticise Odd Fellowship, so long as the
church itself is neglecting the noble
work performed by tbe Odd Fellows,
He stated tbat any mau who took upon
himself the obligations of Odd Fellowship must suicly be a better, nobler and
purer man for having done so, for the
teachings of tha order were ennobling
and elevating. Yet, it did not follow
tbat all Odd Fellows were good and true
men. Seciet orders were not infallible,
and men crept into these organizations
that were not 0 credit to tbe order or
themselves, Vet, this fact waa not an
argument against Odd Fellowship from
a Christian standpoint or a chnrcb standpoint. The church of Christ bad to contend witb the same thing. Tbere were
men wh o got into the church as good
men and true, yet wbo allowed them
selves to be rank hypocrites. The fact
tbat tbey were tbere was no argument
against Christianity or tbe divine teachings of the meek and lowly Christ.
Members of the church should bear this
in mind when they would criticise and
condemn Odd Fellowship.
The speaker dwelt upon the beautiful
lessons of the order, aud dilated 00 Ihe
triune tenets of the order, Friendship,
Love and Truth, aaylng In closing, tbat
there was every reason why Odd Fellows
should be in touch witb the Christian
church, since tho foundation stone of
tbe order were the teachings of the living Christ.
At the close cf the services the members of the order formed Iuto double file
and marched back to the lodge room
from which place lhey dispersed.
J, W. H. Smythe, formerly manager
ol the Canadian bank of Commerce at
Cranbrook and Fort Steele, and now
holding a similar position in Greenwood
was in town two days this week on bis
wny home from Ottawa. Mr. Smythe
visited the east as a member ot the British Columbia delegation, and he says be
believes tbe delegation's work will result in good to tbe west, lince it bad a
tendency to open tbe eyes of some of the
eastern people as to the rapid develop
ment that haa taken place in thia part
of tbe Dominion. He is of tbe opinion
tbat the aubsidy will be granted to refineries, as one ofthe beat methods to
promote the mining interests of the
Speaking of Cranbrook and her growth
during tbe past year, Mr. Smythe said:
"I see that Craubrook continues to grow
in size and prosperity. It is wonderful
what tbe town is doing. Although 1
keep in close touch witb the place, yet I
was greatly surprised to see the changes,
and all of them for the batter. Truly
Cranbrook is destined to be a favorite
spot as a residential city. The hill sides
tbat two years ago were covered witb
pine trees and nudergrowth, are now
the sites of many handsome homes.
And, speaking of your bouses, I see lhat
they are all modern and e credit to a
town many times tbe aize of Cranbrook.
Tbe town is all right, and I am pleased
to see it, for I will always hold a warm
place fu my heart for Cranbrook aud
her people,"     	
N- H. Gouvreau returned* laat week
from an eslended visit to the east. During the past few weeks he spent -round
erable time in Ottawa, and naturally had
something to Bay to different members
he kuew and met about (he woudeiful
resources of British Columbia. He says
it is deplorable fact that the majority of
the members have no conception ofthe
impottance and wealth of this province,
and little or no idea of the development
(hut has taken place here during tbe
past few years. Mr. Gauvreau is of the
opinion tbat most of the representative.1)
need a system of education on the resources and possibilities of tbe great
west, antl until they are educated iu that
direction (be west is bound to suffer from
lundiquate legislation.
"We found both Spokane and Ross
laud rather quiet," said James Ryan,
who relurned Tuesday with Tom Well-
man from a brief visit to both places,
"I asked one man iu Spokane what was
the matter and he aald with a chuckle,
'McKinley.' I guess he must have been
a Democrat. In Rossland, although the
payroll last month was over $300,000,
there seemed to be a lack of business.
The clerks In the stores were idle and
tbe bars were doing very little business.
Tbey attributed tbe trouble there to the
labor conditions, aa there seems to be
fear of a shut down, and tbe men are not
spending any more money than is absolutely necessary. At the line on our return home we had some trouble over our
health certificates, as the officer first refused to accept them on Ihe giounda that
he did not know Dr. King. I told bim
that probably King did not enjoy the
pleasure of his acquaintance, bat that
Ihe certificate was given by ■ health officer and would have to go, Well, they
did, but be took them away from us. I
guess be wanted them as souvenirs."
W. N. Clarke Return.
W. N. Clarke, who left Cranbrook with
the Strathcona Horse, returned yesterday from his borne in Ontario. Mr.
Clarke la looking as it he enjoyed good
health, and yesterday he was busy greeting his many friends. He will probably remain in Cranbrook. When he
returned to his home in Maootlck, tbe
people of tbat vicinity joined In presenting him with a fine gold watch,
fitly Inscribed as a gift for his services
in South Africa. Tbe gift is a beauty,
and one that any mau might well feel
proud of,

Platform et Fort Steele J sac lias,
Last Friday morning when the weat
bound passenger train slopped at Fort
Sleele Junction, a man stepped off and
staggered to a seat on a trunk near the
door of the atation. The train pulled
out and the man sat there, looking
around him in a most pitiful manner.
To the agent, who approached him, he
said, "Tbia is uot Ctaubrook? I want
to go to the hospital. I am afraid I am
going to die." Five minutes afterward
he expired on tbe atation platform.
Coroner Moffat was notified and went
over to tbe junction that afternoon, and
the remains were brought back on a
freight train. The man proved lo be
Henry St. Mary, a miner who had
recently left the Norlh Star mine for
Blairmore, aud was returning to Cranhrook to the St. Kugene hospital when
he got off at the junction and died. A
post mortem was held Saturday and the
coroner's jury brought iu a verdict of
death due to a complication of diseases.
The remains were taken in charge by
the Kimberley Miners' Union, President
J. O. Reiley coming to Cranbrook for
tbat purpose, Fuueral services were
held st the Mission where the remains
were interred.
A Orcat Coacert.
On next Wednesday evening a concert,

musical event in the history of South
Bast Kootenay. Mrs. W. T. Reid baa

those wbo are going to lake part bave

Tbe people of Cranbrook should liberally patronize such work on the part ofthe

Goverooient Cats Dowi Appropriate
for This District.
Compulsory Arbitration in Labor
Disputes is Being; Urged by
Smith Curtis.
From The Herald ror res-, "indent
Victoria, B, C , April 37 —In conversation witb Mr, Smith today, your reporter learned tbat he bad several grievances against tbe government. Not only-
have they failed ts provide for the construction of the Coaat-Kootenay railway
as a goverument work, adding to the
burden ol tavation the poor man bears
by increasing the revenue tai to five
dollars per annum, and a few other sins
of omission and commission, but tbey
have failed tu properly provide for the
needs ofthe district in tbe estimates just
brought down. He made a requisition
fur 133,00*1, but tbe government saw fit
to scale the appropriations down to $30,-
000. Tliis Htiiui), declared Mr. Smith,
in view of lhe big revenues paid into the
provincial treasury by tbe district is
nothing short of an outrage, when other
constituencies, which happened to return government supporters at the last
election, nud paying less (hau oue ball
(he .revenues, are given two or three
times as much as doled out to his riding.
Mr- Smith informs us (hat he will
bave souiething to sny ou this point
when lhe estimates are under consideration, and (hat he will speak bis mind
pretty freely, too, Il is not likely tbat
the session will last more then a couple
of weeks lorger us the goverument bas
all of its work pretty well in band, aud
beginning Monday two sittings will be
held daily so that a bill maybe advanced
two stages in one day, This will clear
tbe order paper In a few days.
Martin's champerty bill waa slashed
all to pieces in committee Thursday.
Its author now refuses to recognize it
and it will probably be abandoned. If
passed it will not materially alter the
present law.
The Coal Mines Regulation Act passed
committee Friday and was reported,
Tbis measure will require miners to pass
an examination and secure a certificate
of competency before he may be permitted to work in a coal mine aa a miner.
This bill will receive its third reading
and become law on Monday.
Smith Curtis informs ua that he will
introduce a bill providing for the compulsory arbitration of labor disputes, and
although very late in the session he
hopes to secure its passage, or falling In
tb'a wilt place every,member of the
house on record on this question. Mr.
Curtis evidently has an eye to a future
campaign when some ot tbe members
will be appealing to the "Dear Working-
Finance Minister Turner made his
budget speech Monday aud it la expected
that the debate will last but a day or
two, as Curtis will be almost alone in discussing it from tbe standpoint of an oppositionist. Martin is now numbered
among the government supporters, while
Hsrry Helmcken disagrees with the executive ouly on the question of railway
With the estimates out or the way the
Ggbt on the loan bill will have the
boards, but it is likely to prove a very
smell fight after all. With Martin's flop
to the government and a peace patched
up wilb (he bolters it is not likely that
there will be a dozen votes against tbe
By-tbe-way, this bill is being received
with favor by all parties. It Is said that
it will shut out the American roads
which seek to exploit (be province for
their own benefit, is directed against the
C. P. K-, and will ultimately compel tbe
government (o construct the lines as demanded by tbe iuleresls of the province.
With this law, tbe province will certainly
be protected fully though construction
may be delayed somewhat in some cases.
With the introduction of this bill all the
rancor caused by the late war is dying
out, and now that tbe campaign in favor
of the V. V. & ti. has ended and its
agents have ceased to appeal tothe prejudices against the C. P. R.; the people
are doing a little thinking and a decided
change is taking place in public sentiment bete towards that corporation. It
Is now recognized tbat the charges made
by the V. V. & K. promoters against the
C. P. R. were in most cases founded on
falsehood and misrepresentation, and
the arguments in favor of their company
were not well founded. It was claimed
tbat the road built aa an Independent
line would give competition in rates, as
then it could not be shown that it would
In any way compete with the C. P. R.
In the Grat place the two roads would
have uo competing points, and if they
could have, the rates on tbe C. P. R. lo
Hritiah Columbia are iu almost every
case  lower  than  those of the Great
Northern, in Washington. In this connection it is also recalled that llie rates
on the Crows Nest Pass and Columbia &
Western, while apparently high may not
in reality be so, and tbat if so the busi-
ness men and shippers on these lines can
secure redres.* by appealing to tbe federal government, which bas absolute control of the rates on these roads. At present, however, the rates given by the
company are in most instances lower
tban those fixed by the government afier
the completion ofthe railway a couple
of years ago. All these things are now
being taken into consideration, though
forgotten a few weeks ngo, and the C. P,
R., that one time octopus ia rapidly regaining Ibat measure of public favor
which its enemies claimed it had forfeited.

A Revelstoke Herald representative
obtained an interview Inst week with
Mr. J. Douglas Walker, K. C, und Mr
A, O. Kirby, the two rep resell tali ves of
a group of London, Kng , capitalists who
recently came out prepared to invest
largely in Lurdneu mining properties,
Mr. Walker expressed himself nt
length aa follows:
"As the mining industry is berthing
to take a foremost plnce among the
industries ofthe country, and is really al
the foundation of all the other industries,
building up towns nnd cities ant! furnishing a market not only for the goods of
tbe wholesale merchant, but lor the products of the three other most important
industries ofthe province, viz . lumbering, farming and fishing, it seems that
tbe time bus come when ibe taxation on
mining should be revised. Miners in
common with traders, are called on to
pay an annual license fee, nnd in regard
to this there is perhaps 110 ground for
complaint, except thut in lhe mining
elates to the south and in Ontario nml
Quebec no nieh fee is Imposed, fie nest
has to pay lor recording n claim n fee of
$3.50 and for recording his outlay, which
has been for thc ultimate benefit of lhe
lute he hns to pay a iee ot $2 50 each
year Tor five years. After doing lus five
years work and paying the fees 1 linv«*
mentioned it costs him several hundred
dollars to secure a crown grant. AH
this must be expended before there is'
any certainly of n return for the money
nnl time expended, and il is fair to assume that perhaps ouly one claim out of
forty or fifty ever proves marketable.
"The owner theu begins to develope
his mine. If he uses a water power there
is au annual fee for that.    For all   the
nber he uses from his claim the gov-
nmeiit charges him (5P Ctjnft per cord.
"All litis it mult be remembered, is in
addition lo the heavy customs tax the
miner, in common with all the rest ot
the population,  has to pay on  tools,
■lothing and foon; and the  heavy  expenses be is put to get all these  thing!-
o the scene of his labors, which usuull)
lies iu a more or lessltiaccessible place
and thousands of miles from llie ntauu
faclutfng centers. So much for initial
.xpi-uses 111 the shape t.i tuxes nud trans
portatiou charges and so ou. I ma>
also say incidentally, as additional cvi
deuce ol lhe exceptional ditltculties snd
■ xpeitses lhe miner has lo face, tliat tht
wages he pays ure higher atul the hour*
nf work Shorter, limited as lhe latter an
by statue lo eight bouts per day, than in
iliut.stany other industry. Besides, you
must remember, all this lime he is helping to bring into existence some litllt
own near his property, tbuscreating foi
die country additional means oflaxnlioi
uul revenue.
"The Inst straw to the camel's load h
in the shape ofa royalty of iwo per cent
on the the gross profits realized on tht
ire without mnking any allowance foi
the expenses of miuing. There is ni
• uch tnx ou tbe output of any other in
lust ry. There is no such lax on ore in
ihe United Stales, nor as jar as we kuow
lu anycmlized country. Theu there U
n land tux of 35 cenls per acre on ever)

10 all the other taxes."

By Iti Vac (he Drummer Gained a
Profitable Cnitomer,
"It's a hard life, that of the drummer,"
feaid one recently to whom 30 ynrds ot
hard work had given the right to speak
with authority. "It's a hard life, but it's
an Interesting game and gives a man a
close hold on facta and realities. Thc
drummer learns In a hard school, but
he does learn, and the lessona pay. Whnt
Is the first lesson he haa to learn? Hon*
to manage men; how to approach a reluctant or an indifferent or a suspicious
buyer io as to win his confidence and
overcome hia indisposition.
"Experience teaches this better than
anything else, though some men learn it
more easily than others. I remember
when I first began to travel as a salesman, when I wns hardly more tban a lad,
I had an experience that proved valuable
to me. There was an old fellow on my
route who had been known for years as
the terror of all traveling men. He was
declared to be absolutely the worst na-
tured, worst mannered fellow they had
ever met anywhere, but I hadn't even
heard of him then, and bo I entered his
store very confidently and handed him
my card. He took it without even glancing at It, tore It into bits and threw the
pieces on the floor. 'Now, air,* he said to
me, 'get out of my store.' There were
two pretty young girls In the store, who
did not understand the proceeding and
who looked at me as I walked out aa if
I bad been nn escaped convict.
"Well, I smarted for several days over
that affair, during which time I made np
my mind thut I'd even matters up witb
hlm If I could next time. So before I
visited his town again I had a card made
expressly for my good friend. It looked
exuetly like the one 1 used before, only
that it was made of tin. When I reached his town, I waited until I saw the
store pretty well filled with people, and
then I walked In and gave bim my card,
He took It just as before, glared tt me
and gave the card a twist,
"But lt didn't fall on the floor In bits
this time, and he only succeeded In giving his wrist a wrench and raising a titter among his customers,
"I was nearly out of tbe door by this
time, for I really didn't think my life
wus safe, but be called after me, and I
went back. 'Come Into my office,' said
he. I went lnt expecting never to come
" 'What do you want to sell me?' he
asked me.
" 'Dress goods,' I responded,
" 'Well, go on.' And I actually sold the
old curmudgeon f 1,000 worth of cloth be
fore I left. For yenrs after, so long o-
he lived, In fact, bo was ono of my beat
customers and one of the best frleudi
I aver made in my business.'

By far the most valuable byproduct
obtained from tbe sturgeon Is tbe roe,
from which the valuable commercial
product called caviare is prepared. For
this only the hard roe of the "cow" fish
la supposed to be u,sed. The manner oi
preparation is as follows:
After the egga have been removed from
the fish they are placed In large chunks*-
upon a Btainl, the top o. which is formed
of a small meshed screen. On tbe underside is arranged a zinc lined trough,
about 18 inches deep, 2 feet wide and 4
feet long. The operator gently rubs tin*
mass of egga back and forth over thr-
screen. The mesh is Just large enough
to let the egga drop through, and as lhey
aro separated from the membrane by the
rubbing they fall through into the trough
nnd arc thence drawn off Into tubs by
means of t Eliding door at the end of th?
After all the roc has been separated
ths tub Is removed and a certain proportion of the best Luncberg (Germany) sail
added to tbe roc, after which the operator carefully stirs and mixes the mnss
with bis hands. The most delicate part
of thc whole operation is In the mnnucr
of miring. No direct rule can be given
for doing this portion of thc work, as the
condition of the roe regulates the time
consumed and the manner of hnndlins:.
It requires practical experience to become proficient.
After adding the salt the mass of eggs
first dries up, but In 10 or in minutes the
strength of the salt draws from the eggs
their watery constituents and a copious
brine Is formed, which can bo poured off
when the tub becomes too full. The salted eggs are poured into very finely meshed nit*ves, which hold about ten pounds
each. In the cavlnre hnnse nre usually
arranged long, sloping bourn, with narrow strips nailed ou each side. On these
tlm sieves nre placed and are left thore
from 8 to 20 hours lu order to thoroughly
The eggs bnve now become caviare
of commerce nud are transferred to smnll

possible leakage; the disks ore covered
und allowed to stand until the gna escapes and the eggs settle, 'llio vacant
space caused by the settling is then filled,
nnd thc citHk bended up nnd put In a cool
place until ready for shipment. The

"It's about thc most embarrassing
thing that cuu happen to one," recently
declari-d u well kuowu actor when referring tu momentary lapses of memory on
the stage.
"Some players," ho continued, "aro
peculiarly liable to forgot their words,
ond personally the longer I have been
plnyiiig one character the more prone am
I to 'run off the Hue.' You see, you, as
It were, get to know the words too well.
They arc bo fnmilinr thnt they foil to
claim your attention, and then one night,
before you are nwnro of it, memory fails

"A tragedian told me a rather peculiar
story oh to ti breakdown thnt happened
tti hlmselfi In lho middle of ono of his
spcci-lifs a lndy dressed In bright red
cume into the hin IK and, watching the
patch of brilliant color, the actor forgot
tils words, The next evening n kind of
lerror seized upon hlm lest some oue la
red should ngnin tnko a seat and he repeat Ills previous night's uiifurtniuito
performance So strong lind this iVuing
hi'conio thut, after three or four nights,
thut mau actually bought his wife a
bright red dress and got her tu sit in tbe
stalls so that ho might overcome his apprehension.
"Another mnn I know plays in musical
comedy. He never forgets the lines of
bis spoken parts, but often makes a slip
iu a song, lie comes to the end of a Hue
and can recall nothing but the beginning
of thc next verse, aud he hns to stop the
orchestra and begin over ngnin. Some
singers, when ln this predicament, just
sing on Mum-tl-tum' to the tune till the
words come hack. Borne have told me
that having once been at sea with their
words they are sure, out ot nervousness,
to mnkc another slip the same evening.
They arc so anxious to avoid another mistake that their minds can think of nothing but tbat they must remember their
words. In singing, the tune, of course,
somewhat assists yon to remember tbe
"As you know, tbe prompter usually
comes to tbe rescue of the player so
stranded. But occasionally that official
is not at his post, and then the mon on
the stage has to .wrestle with his brains.
Sometimes one of the company will, perhaps very audibly, supply the omission.
While some players when they brenk
down resume as best they can and take
no notice of tbe mishap, others gag or
tako tbe audience into tbeir confidence.
Said one over tbe footlights: 'Now, those
are just the very words I thought I
should forget The gas man called ai I.
was learning them,' Another, on coming
to one of these awkward full stops, said:
'Pardon me, please. I was thinking
whether tbere was enough of that cold
chop to do for supper and quite forgot
my words.' These things sound poor
enough to relate, but at tbe same time
they 'go' well enough.
"One singer who broke down sold:
'Look here! We'll get over that difficulty
by dropping the verso altogether. You'll
still get your money's worth, for I'll sing
the last verse twice.1 There Is one little
trick that usually goes down well. The
singer bas foiled and bas had to appeal
to tho prompter. When he finishes his
song, be darts off and drags on tbe
prompter—probably In bis shirt sleeves—
to share lu tbe applause, which Is usually
quite enthusiastic.
"Well, as most players keep their memories in hand, as 1 must say, some peculiar tilings have happened. In one play
an actor 'doubled' two parts. lie was
an olil man in the prologue and a young
one later on, and In each be had a longish
speech to mnkc. These speeches he alwnys attempted to transpose, and one
niglit ho got out some four or five lines
ef tho wrong speech ere he realised what
he wns doing. Another man played In a
piece having a darkened scene. Stepping
on ,o the gloom shrouded stage, he, to no
one's surprise more tban bis owu, commenced a portion of a part that he had
played In another drama having a similar
'lights low' episode.
"There are some vocalists who cannot
trust themselves to sing n single note In
public without the printed or written
words. This Is awkward If they obtain
engagements—and most seek thciu—on
the vnrlety stage, for there, as you kttow,
It is not the custom to hold music In the
hands. Some ball-id singers aud otbera
write tho words very small on a card nud
hold this In the palm of the hand. 1
heard ot one man who, singing three new
nml rothcr difficult songs, adopted tbis
lit tio device. He got so used to having
the words there thnt ho Was afraid to do
without them. When he changed to
other songs, he attempted to dispense
with the paper, but ho fouud lhat he hod
become so UBcd to having It to look at
now and again tbat he was 111 at ease
and awkward before bis audiences without It.
"Iii opera breakdowns arc uot, I think,
frequent. You see, opera Is special work.
Tlie opera season Is nn event thnt excites great Interest, and all renderings nre
inevitably contrasted with those of other
great singers, This puts the players on
their mcttlo nnd keeps them excited
about their work. They hnve no chnncc
of pliiying and Hinging mechanically, nnd
so their memory does not often fall them.
Any slips thnt do occur are usually caused by nervousness. I henrd of one prima
donna who, In a new opera, bad a particularly fine song to sing. So eager was
■ho lo get to this that by mistake she
sturtrd It Instead of oho that should bare
preceded It. Tho conductor luckily saw
the Blip Instantly, and, rousing his men,
he cleverly went with the singer. She
faltered a littlo as tbe truth flashed upon lier, but, having the music ell correct, sho sang tho song out and earned
grent npplauBc.
"As I have snid, however, while you
remain thoroughly interested In your
work you are not likely to experience a
brenkdown. On a long ruu the opposite
Is tlie case, and It Is when you are so
familiar with the words that you don't
bother aboutflthem that yon suddenly discover you have for the time being lost
them    altogether."

A well dressed Btranger walked Into
the Boyce building bullet Inst Monday
and exchanged n quarter ror n drink
und cigar. .lust as he turned to go
out he stooped to ihe floor nnd apparently picked up a gold tipped fountain
pen. II was uf line wuikiiinnsliiii nnd
must hnve cost lis owner al least $!0,
"Something of u find/' murmurt'd the
strauger, us he placed the pen on the
bur. "Guess we will Imve to have Another oue on that. Try It and see If It

The bartender ranched for n sheet of
paper nud unseiewiug ihe iieuhulder
round tlmt ii was 11 Uud with black Ink
ami that the pen; Which wns diamond
pointed, wrote as sinuullily ns a quill.
Several present tried It In order to test
its good qualities,
Just at tills point a second stranger
entered Who hnd beeu mound curlier
In the dny. luul spent a little uiouey
and had departed,
"Say, when 1 was here nwhile uro I
lost iny gold pen. Any of you fellers

"Whut klud of tt pen was It?" asked
one of the proprietors.
"Gold cap nml head, diamond tipped,

"Look anything like this one?" queried stranger No. 1, as be held up the
peu he bad pretended to flud just previously.
"That's tlie pen, suro enough.
Thanks. Come up, boys," wns the an*
"But you snid yours was filled with
red ink," some one remarked, As this
was said the stranger traced several
lines on thc paper lying on the bur.
The Ink was black, even Jelllkc in color. All saw this except the claimant
of the pen.
"Yes; I said red, and I mean red,
carmine red, and no mistake. I know
my pon when I see It, and don't you
forget It.   Como, hand Hover."
The pen had reached the proprietor's
bands, who tested It himself,. There
was nothing red about Its contents that
he could see. Tlm Ink was of the blackest bite.
One word followed another between
tbe two strangers until tlie nihil who
claimed the pen offered to bet $1U0 the
pen wns hts property and contained
red Ink.
Coolly the first stranger brought out
bis pocketbook. He bod but $40 with
hlm. "Lend me $50." said be, "on this
ring or come In halves ou the bet. It's
a sure thing."
All thought so, nud Iu less than a
minute the moiiey had been placed.
"Now try the pen for yourself." said
the stranger who was betting on bluck.
"Guess I kudw my own pen," observed thc second stranger us be gave a
quick Jerk downward with tho holder
ns If to force the ink Into the pen.
"Let's have a clean Bheet of paper and
see what thc mark will be like."
Throwing the pun hand forward with
a decided jerk ouce or twice, the stranger took tbe paper and in a bold, easy,
running band wrote:
"Fools are born every minute."
Tbe letters were plainly transcribed
In red ink. Iu fuet, tho pen would not
write In black. Tbe $200 bet was collected, and drinks were bought. The
gentleman having proved ownership
of the pen placed it In his pocket and
went away. .Shortly afterward the
other left, and It wasn't until Detective .lack Flymi of tho central detail
came In that the boys realized tbey
had parted with their moucy ou another man's gume.
The reservoir of thc pen Is divided
by a partition, each side of which connects with the feeding valve ot the
pen's nub. A small point projects on
the lower side of the penholder. The
Inks nre easily changed from one color
tu another by simply pushing the slide.
The trick Is a good one, as many cuu
testify to their Borrow.
