tlio dramatio tnv, and olliom fun provoking
inoiistrmltles thrown together by myself
with llemlUh ivcklessuciH, my solo aim being
loader to tho somow hat unvarnished Insten
of tho rough mliiero, whono jellow dust 1
coveted with true maungerinl oageruest,
AVo played lo good huslnoo at several
eainp-4, mid ono forenoon rolled into n soltlo
Meiit which Ikicu tho euphonious name ''Red
Uog,"and which wo had been told was ono
of tlio liveliest on nips In tho "dlgglu's.1' Our
uuo eyed engineer halted us in front of tlio
only hotel In tho p'neo, nnd wo were noon
discussing tho merits of n genuine mountain
meal bacon, corn bread, tnolnnei and cotTeo.
After battling manfully with tho crude re
past, nnd succeeding after a hard struggle in
downing It, tho male members of tho troupe
started out to Ibid n place hi which to glvo
tho entertainment. There was not u hall in
tho camp, and as tho hotel dining room was
used during tlio night for gambling pur
poses, our every uirort to secure It proved
In tho upper end of tho ono long street of
tho town wo discovered a log building which
hnd ouco been um.iI as n general store, but
which was then vacant, in tlio rear of which,
raised about four feet higher than tho main
store room, wns u smaller room which had
evidently been built for n sleeping room for
tho proprietor of tlio store. Wo saw at
glance that If tlio log partition wns cut out
tho smaller room would servo excellently for
a stage, and by closo llguring wo concluded
that MX) pvrtioiiii could bo crowded Into tho
auditorium. Hunting up the owner of tho
building 1 explained tho matter to him, and
asked him what ho w ould charge for bin grand
opera houso for ono evening, giving us tho
privilege of cutting away tho partition. He
was a big, rough fellow, clad Inn bluo woolen
shirt and corduroy breeches, tho hitter
tucked in a pair of rawludo boottf, while
iirouud hU Palstalllau waist was n bolt in
which an ugly looking six shooter iiuletly re
posed. Kyelng tho obstructing partition u
moment ho said:
"As fur a charges is concarued, you hain't
got no dust in yor ilnulc as 1 hanker alter, an1
us funis tho wall is concarued, ef it's liiyer
way yank it down, hang it, yank It down.
Anything to 'commodate. Just lopo ahead,
gents, an' tix tilings m you waut 'em, nu'
you won't hoar no roar from mo."
Procuring n saw, wo noon cut out a stage
opening, and framed In tho rudo proscenium
with calico of the brighest iiiiarehlstlo hue
procurable. Then, with logti and borrowed
planks, tho houso was seated, our banner
"Show Hero To-night" Hung to tho breeze,
nnd nil was toady.
When darkness set In twenty tallow
caudles cast light and melted greao over the
hall, and I stood nt tho door awaiting the
ruslu Half-past 8 came, nnd not a soul
had put in mi apiwiranco. Tho people wore
dressed and weru grouped on tho stago dis
cussing tho situation in language bristling
with adjectives which Webster had over,
looked in tho null and confusion which at
tended the throw lug together ot his diction
ary, while I peered out Into tho darkuo-u and
lltoned for coming footstciw and wished all
sorts or ill luck on tlio uunpprcclathu people.
At last I heard voice away down tho
street, nccoiiiKiti!cil by heavy footstep, mid
toon in the darkness saw u crowd of men
headed straight for tho houso,
"They are coming, boys, get off tho stage,"
I cried, for wo did not Indulge in tho luxury
of a drop curtain with our great caravan ag
gregation. Tlio tiddler seized his tlmo beaten
instrument and began on tho popular tun;,
"Tho Days of Forty-nine," and n moment
later llfteen men marched up, each paid l:h
dollar and pnssed iusldo. Ten minutes later
nnd no ono elso came. Going back to tho
htugo I explained tho situation to tho com
pauy. Oar auditors wore rough, burly, de
termined looklug men, with scowling face
faced that scorned to oppress mo with a
strange uneasiness as tho fellows sat there
silent and glum waiting for the show to
"fllvotheni tho best you'vo got, boys," I
bald, "for it's ii tough crowd, that won't,
ttand any foolishness. And, you know, wo
may want to stop hero on our way back, ani
u good show now may help us then."
Two farces were played, n.ul I uover caw
better playing in a 'Frisco theatre, but tkn
audience sat unmoved. Not a smile, not rt
"hand," not tho shuMoof a foot, OurelTorta
seemed to have totally failed to catch them.

K1IAM Of MEnV AND IIIH MOTIinil,
Of all tho great cities which ouco dotted
tho fertile nectioi:j of Turklstan, but a few
Krtious remain ; Uio gt eat Tin tar empire has
fallen to pieces, nud lepmato sections are
ruled over by their rcsjiecttvo klinns. Among
these the khan of Merv Is now mi ally, 11 sort
of honorary subject of tho Russians. Tlio
cngrnving represents this l.hau and his
mother In front of their humble summer
residence. Onco this city ot Merv wnsono of
the four imperial cities of tho lVrslan sul
tan", and wn n place of power under tho
SelJuk dynasty. Nearly n hundred years
ngu It was sacked by the Uzbecks, n Tartar
rhco who destroyed the remains of the old
omplip, and has steadily declined till its pop
nation Is but little over :,000.
Turklstati Is uow only n genoral namo for
tho vast tract of highland, mountain and
valley, -stretching enstunrd tictwecu tho
Russian dominions and Persia and India to
the south, and containing 10,000, (XX) eople.
Tho Russians havo already annexed the west
ern part, ami will doubtlca annex and civil
ize much of tho rest. ThiTr railroad Is nn
enterprise much llko the construction of the
Union l'ncille ncross western America, nnd '
runs through regions very much like Utah,
Wyoming nud Novndn, but tlio summers nro
much wanner and tho winters colder iu the
valley. There is said to be vast wealth of
gold and coal Iu the mountains, nnd if tho
Russians succeed In their enterprises, Merv
will ouco more become u place of great lin
porta nee. Tho khuii Is not a despot, though
his 1 ion or Is paternal, as the iiomadie habits
of the ieoplo rcqulro u large degree of per
sonal liberty. The Russians insiuo- tolera
tion to all forms of religion, ami Mohamme
dan, Uoodhlst and Shaman worship iu pence
under their rulo; yet thoy aro organizing the
jieoplo iu Kuropenn forms as fast as possible,
and the kliau, whose picture I send with
this, holds a Russian army commission.
Advantages of 11 Hired (llrl.
I notice that ono of our American girls
who married a nobleman has gone back to
her old calling ns n hired girl. Sho was a
citizen of New Jersey, nnd married Hddle,
tho royal pinchbeck from nero:s tho doopbluo
sea. Ho sal J ho would Isistow upon her all
his titles, crests and patrimonial acrai If sho
would lovo him nud bo his'u. She stated
that sho would. Then they went to llvo with
her father for 11 spell, Eddie eating tho crenm
olT the morning's milk of thrco cows, spread
over Ids vesper dcwiwriieM. Now Cddlo's bro
ther comes from aero'ii tho sea nnd says that
he Is not noble, but boils sugar at home. Ho
takes 1'ddio by tho nose nud tells mo lady
thnt she had Itctter hustlo for hcrsolf. So
sho has resumed the crumb brush nud
two nights out each week. What an Ameri
can girl wants to bo ndiichessor lady of high
degree for, when she cm Ik) an American
hired girl, with ten times as much power, is
more than 1 can make out Aside from being
n sleeping car conductor, with a haughty
mien and nothing to do, I would rather beau
American girl, with good wages, no board to
pay nnd my now worn high, than to lo most
anything I know of, A good American ser
vant generally drosses about us well or better
' than her mistress, has moro to cay about most
everything, even ns to whether company may
or may not bo invited to tho house, has no
bills to pay for anything but clothes, and
actually lives a fur moro Independent llfo
than lots of sad eyed women who aro trying
to hold a very ticklish position in what we
call society. Hill Nyo in New York World.
