The Actor's Story.
Charloa Dillon, who wn bora about the year

earner about ten yeara later in the "MiaUetoe

proHpoct More than one tragedian of my ao
inaintanea has been known, under cover of
night, to limp into some sleepy little town with
hia email amount of properties in hia carpet-

acribo how, when a young man, Lo bad to maVe

euui us.aa'Jo.and, as he waa about to play "lead

was lost iu the glory of the future! Arrived,
completely worn out, at his destination, ha ob
taiued l.jdymj; at a quaiut little shop, owuod
bv a piump litllo baker who was not unlike the
plump litllo loavo exhibited iu his own win

tho place was lookod upou by the inhahauuta

This waa not a bngnt prospect for our btra-

on the arrival of the uigiit iu question, lo! the
speli was broken, tue dreamers were rousod
f iom their golde.i sleep, for wiih the excep
tion of the mayor and bis party, the house
was eveu wort-e than UHual: aud the play
choteu for the ocsasiou was a cojuody !
ibat night Dillon, with the rent, left tho
tliea;ie with his hopes eo completely crushed
su i broken down that he could not face his
home, 'ihe thought oT the theory aspect of
the place aud the uncomplaining patience of
the kindly coujilo w.ts too much for him, and
so ho turned hi. steps whero wailing night
winds, sullen black clouds aud spectral trees
offered him companionship moro suitable
to tho haggard state of hia toolings. W.th bis
reuses in a sort of stupor, he wandered up and
down roada and croea roads, lanea and by-lani-s
till, worn oat and numbed, the first streak of
day found bim leaning upon the low parapet 01
a little rustic bridge which arched the uoisy
flow of a shallow stream. Yielding to the mes
meric influence that water always had over
him, he watched the eddying current as it
leaped along aud give himself coniDletely np
to the grim jailer of his thoughts, till at lat a
fitful aud restless aleep seized upon him. This
leep, however, brought no soothing balm t
his mind, for as he lemed there with his head
bowed on his crossed arms, the vis on of hi--landlord,
and, worst of all, his landlady, rose
before him. demanding with angry violence the
Sayment doe to them. The more he pleade
ia m ire they raved and heaped his head w.th
scornful epithets. Thea the surroundings
suddenly chauged, and ha was iu a deep aud
louely cell, dark and gloomy as his own
thoughts. Again there were t lie reproich u.
f .oes of bia landlord and landlady peer a
him from the grating. At le.igth aomeuinv
touched bim, when, with a start, he awoke an !
found himself in the broad daylight with
the little baker standing beside him. He
had been his moruiug rounds and un
expectedly came upon his truant lodger.
Without a word he twitched Dillon by
the 8leeve, and both turned away, Dillion walk
ing by the ride of bis captor with all the nir of
a culprit concealing as well as he could the
yves upon his wrists! Not a word was ut
tered by either till, rencliiiig home, the little
baker entered the cosy kitoheu with it s bright
hear 'h and glow of com tort, and pointing to
wheie his wife sat, her faco Palo aud sad, an
her eyes wet with tears, said: "Never been tv
bed all night never cried so much since w"
lost our little one; it was cruel to treat us like
that, sir, crueL" The little baker, as if poor
Dillion had been a refractory child, led him to
the warmest corner of the room where tin
table was laid with his last night's supper
"Never mind," said the little woman, with a
ioyous laugh, aa she dried her eyes, "the bad
boy's come home again, and please to remem
ber, sir, this is your home till a better one
turns up." So e'tying, she bustled about with
the color once again in her motherly face, and
aa if her sudden flow of spirit was infectious
the whole room seemed to Dilliou'a imagina
tion to look brighter aud bounier. The pan
w a Moon spluttering on the lire, the ke.tle
aang, the coffee steamed, the toast looked more
mountainous than ever, as poor Dillou with a
"l'defs you, mother," quivering on bia lip,
fairly broke and wept like a baby!
Alany years after, wbenfortuuo had changed

ceum, he waa one night slipp.ug through the
Usual crowd of id.e s and the curious iuto his
brougham, when a voice with more eraotiou
than grammar, cried, "That's bim!" Some
thing iu the tone of voi-e took his mind back
to that quaint little couple 1 have attempted to
describe. He turned and there before him,
with their heads whiter, but their faces ki..dly
and genii I as ever, were his old landlord and
landlady! Dillon drove to the end of the street
and got out and w .ited. Soon the pair passed
him, aud he fodowed in the shadow. For a
long time they did not speak, till at last tle
little woman said, in a sad voice. "He did Vt
know 11s, John, and yet he saw us." But sud
denly there waa a rush, a enueei .z of bauds.
and uttering of joyous exclamations ; and that
night in one of the best rooms in au hotel 1 1
tue Straud, three people made merry : tho old
kin 'ness and lore were born agii.i, aud when
tuey parted the same motherly voice, though
in different tones said, "God blese him, he
hadn't forgotten us after al!"

LADY FLORENCE DIXIE.
Her Extraordinary Adventures in

Florence Dixie is a lady by birth, by mrriaK,

bust of the encounter. Unfortunate

Treating to Scarf Pins.

It is said that while a party of friends were
-naking the rounds a few days ago of estab
Lshments whoro creature comforts are kept in
oottles and sold by the glass, one man, whose
urn it was to "treat," led the crowd into a
"uruishing-store and asked them what they
would have. Ono ordered a shirt collar, an
ither took cuffs, a third asked for a scarf pin,
rhich, it ia to presumed, he took "straight;"
out it is nevertheless related of all the party
'h it they felt rather sheepish. It is hard to
understand why. unless thev held to the old

THE AMERICAN DRAMA
The Typical Silent Man of Art Ion.
Keeping in view the irotf pikea set np for
tho immolation of pirate's heads, I venture to
note some reflections about the coming play.
The carpenUir who now poast-ssfH the ntaga
with his scenic effecta is not the eunuiy of the
playwright, aa so many say ; he is our auxiliary
and the scene painter, he ia our brother. We
need aud must have them loth when the great
play is written. Let us ouly d our work aa
well at they do theirn, and public ia oura.
As for this "great American play," somo one
of us will writo it soon. And it wdi not only
be the great play of America, but tha great
play of tho agt, the world. Far out yonder iu
the middle of America, beyond where tho
stormy e.ea of tradition from Europe rolls over
us, I think wo have tho new, btroug and suf
uoint motive to fashion it from.
The heroes of Homer shook their shields
and recited the deeds of thalr fathara aud
grandfathers, even back to the gods. All
Greek tragedy is iu tho sama strain. St Paul
found the Greeks great talkers. CivihUatiou
iu its march west around tho world has been
faithful to the Greek drama. Words! words!
words! But out yonder in the far west this la
all changed. Tho American pure and simple
dooa not talk. He adds. And this grand, aileut,
massive American is to be the central figure
for tho American, the eutirely new play.
Whether this dignity of soul is boru of tho sub
I limity about him, the eternal peaks of snow
j alsivo him, and the vast tranquility of the
' plain below him, I do uot Hay. but I do say
that this giiiud, nnspeakiug, acting man i-iists
a new man, a silent man in a noisy world.
And 1 should say he is pc-uiiarly the growth
of the land. Tor who ever saw au ludiau
whom wrong or pain or pi'y could move to
words or tears? What man his ever heard au
Indian baby cry It took C 11. Grant tweuty
years to learn to talk after I.j left us in the far

noisy brood; abroad, too, and 111 congress, lor
the old bible tool, known by bia "luulatuda of
words," is alike in all lands. Aud the fool bas
bis uses, even in the draffto. But this adeut
mau, with his silent woman, at bis side, this
man of action aud not of words, from ml JuUe
America, as the central figuro, is to mark aud
distinguished the new world play from the

Jetl'orsou haB met aud observed my silent mau
in the farthest west Davy Crockett, however,
iu more than one sense, discovered this char-
j acter almost entirely. ot this may be accounted
ior ny the Tact that .Mayo, the most studious or
men, spent his youth 011 tho Pacific, where he
must have mot aud understood this eileut man
of deeds. There is a little scene at tho well;
the old mother comes to draw water. Davy
drops everything, teudorly takes tho bucket,
draws, film it, bears it away for hia mother
without lo:tiug tho frail trembling old ha:id
touch it.au I hands it through iheUouraiterh.tr.
I do uot re lemhcr that one word is spoken lu re.
Hut I dr l.uow that more tears have been i-hed
over tb-it ono silo.it uud ready insignificant
scene th.-n would fill that bucket, oh, the
tuiider manhood that is in it!
Another quaint bit tiom the west, which
stands out like a star to nie, is found in "My
Partner." GonUo old Joe 8a n ti lers is oiug to
divide tlo gold and go awav. for the e is Lit
ter trouble. He digs np the gold from tho
hearth a :d pours it out ou the table, where bis
eil-int p:.rtnir sits wi:h "lowed face. He di
vides the gold with ins kui c. "Is that about
" 1 os, yei," auswer the other, t-.till ioii.ing
away. A;cd then Joe, ami all thi tan'- wi'dtout
a word being spoken, j.tr-Ii -s over more fcold
to his partner's heap. N ting ho is not o:
801 vod, hu cautiously t'iis over another nug
get. Then be picks "out t last the largest of
hid little heap, and uu-en adds it to his
successful rival s fortune. What a profanity
words would bo at such a time!
At West Point you read on a little monument
that, a portion of our army being ambushed in
one of our ludiau wars, every mau stood his
ground, fighting till only three survived, when
help came. Grand! immortal! But what
moved me and seems most truly Americau is
the fact, as told to me by a survivor, that not a
word of command was given after the first or
der. Every officer silently (brew his sword, be
came a common soldier, and so fought on to
the end. There was no need of command ; only
the low prayer of the dying, tho message to the
loved ones at home, and all day the lieadly
fight weuton. That is America, that is Amer
ican character emptied of the froth of Fourth
of July and foreign tradition. Aud that is the
germ of the great American play.
Yeara ago I crossed over the Sierras into the
new mines of Navada, then a part of Cal. for
ma. I found au old friend standing at the
mouth of his mine, shouting out his commands
in monosyllables down tho shaft New ( ities
gleamed oelow; mines opened above; progress
thundered through tho laud. "What are you
doing here?" 1 cried He took in the horizon
under his hat, bit off the end of his cbar,
looked at the new cities below, the tremendous
mining engines all about the tunnels piei '-mg
the mountains above, but did not spe ik. "Why,
what on earth are you all doing here iu Ne
vada?" I . again shouted. "World-hunting."
And that was all that this silent man, now a
United States senator, answered. It was
enough. He made that word then and there, I
think. He coined it as from his new silver.

The Pleasure of ForgetfuDjiess.
Pittaburg Sunday Traveler.
The books we read and the stories we hear,
if thoy could be forgotten as soon as read or
hoard think of the inexhaustible riches of
literature and conversation. Now, half that w
read, and more than half which we hear is
stale, fiat and unprofitable, simply because of
memory's uugrateful service. Memory baa
its bright side, but for;;etf ulness is a golden
sphere; it is bright all over. Forgetfuluess
is pleasure, and pleasure is forgetfulnesa.

who was presented in the house ef representa

son, of Virginia, the American minister to Eng
land. Perry was in some way married into the
Butlers and" other plantation families which
confiscated the wages of labor, and he there
fore, although a northern man, took a hot
interest in anybody's remarks ou slavery.
Being in England he indorsed Steven
son's attempt to collect claims for

O'Conticll launched into a fierce invective
against American slave-holders. Stevenson
sou attempted to bully him, assisted by Perry,

accommodate these American gentry, however,
