The Theatrical Mnnuccr.
Thero is no moro assiduous publlo poser than
tho theatrical manager. Two centuries ago
bis craft began to fool tho public pulse. No

actress is disturbed in her boudoir by the
ontranco of a footman who announces a
caller. "If it is tho Prince of Wales," says
thefootllght autocrat, 'Tm not at home."
"It's a soap manufacturer," responds the
lackey. "Show him in I" is the gracious bohest

vate lottor by Hiipcrlntoudent Hldnoy T. Poiw,
of the road, formerly a Boston man. lie
wrote to a friend n follows)
"I had Ihx'ii up the road the day before,
nnd coming back had my car hitched on to
tho rear of tho ore train All the cars had
Iwen iiom ly eiulpHl w ith nlr braki, which
workcl all right until wo reached the big hill

I ever rode before, ami, knowing that tho
train was sure to leave tho track soon, wo cut

the engineer had ono hg broken, but It is do

was not killed, n thu rods on tho engine
broke nml siuahel tho c.ib almost to pieces.
IIo thinks ho fell through tho bottom of tho
cab Just ns tho engine left tho track. The
machinery of the engine Is most of It liter
ally burned up owing to tho friction of tho
f ;reat speed, and tho englueer says that tho
ast part of tho way tho lower part of his eu

don't think thu statement made that tho
train was running 110 miles was much of nu
exaggeration. Two-thirds of tho ears werea
total wreck, if the spool was 110 miles nu
hour and the train went but one tulle nnd n
half after tho car wascut oil It may bu called
a cloo call for tho ocoujwints of tho car."

The cleverness of un English rascal has ex
cited the envy of nil the rascals Iu Parts,
who, with typical Parisian egotism, have long
claimed to bo thu cleverest rascals In thr
world. Tho English rascal iu question was a
professional Loudon pickpocket. Shortly
before tho French exposition opened ho
bought n small hotel in Paris on tho install
ment plan. Tho purchato price of tho hotel
was IW.000 francs, and tho first nnd only In
stallment which the Englishman paid was
2,000 francs. Tho Englishman Iwught a fow
pieces of cheap English furniture for his now
house, ciulpied tin English bar, and then ad
vertised far and wide for English boarders
during tho exposition. His prices wcru so
low thnt ho soon tilled his Iioumj.
Every one of his lodgers was warned by a
placard over his bod that tbo landlord would
not bo responsible for tho loss of nny valua
bles which had not been dcioslU.J In tho hotel
safe. Of course tho safo deposits increased
with tho popularity of tho hotel, nnd both
reached high water mark two days before tho
second installment of 2,000 francs on tho pur
chase price of thu hotel fell due. There was
then 33,000 francs' worth of UrltUh jowelry
nnd bank note in the safe. Thu pickpocket
landlord stole every sou of It. Ho concealed
his plunder In his tmartors in another part of
Paris, dyed his hair, shaved his lieard, fin ton
a French suit of clothes nnd began picking
pockets at thu exposition. Hu was Caught by
tho h)1Ico with lit hnud in tho pocket of an
English member of parliament, nnd was
locktxl up. A police Investigation led ton
revelation of his hUtory and tho recovery of
tho Jowelry nnd monoy which had been
given to him for safo keeping. Now York

The abuse of tho eye is tho crlmo of tlio

known it to fall I am fortified in my opinion
that tho wholo trouble arises from overstrain
of tho eyes. Tnko a soft cloth y n ploco of

they gave tho bottle to tho guides to carry,
