No headLay person need fear any
dangerous consequences from an
attack of la grippe if properly
treated. It ia much the same as a
severe cold and requires precisely
the same treatment. Remain quiet
ly at home and take Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy as directed for a se
vere cold and a prompt and com
plete recovery is sure to follow.
This remedy also counteracts any
tendency of la grippe to result in
pneumonia. Amon the many
thousands who have used it during
the epidemics of the past two years
we have yet to learn of a single
case, that has not recovered or that

SHE HAD TO SAY FLY.
Amalaar Performer Wko IiulstaxI
Upon rollowlnc the Lines.
It i not often that professional actors
get mixed up in amateur theatricals,
but when they do, as a rule, their lives
are made miserable until the affair in
07er. A few yearn ago a young wom
an, who was one of the reigning belles
of the Four Hundred in tliis city, wrote
I a romantic play, plentifully sprinkled
; with 6ingiirg and dancing. She read the
play to her intimate frieuda, and they
one and all unanimously declared that
it ehouH be produced at one of the the
aters where amateur iierformances are
I held, and that the author should play
I the part of the heroine. After much
J coaxing the lady consented. The play
was called "Kismet." The cast was se
lected from among the best amateurs,
the leading man being the head and
front of them. The scene of the play
was laid in Turkey, in the garden and
palace of the sultan. The plot" was
hinged on the abduction of two beauti
ful girls and their final rescue.
A clever professional stage manager
was engaged at a big salary and re
hearsals began. Everything went along
as smoothly as could be expected until
the last rehearsal, which took place on
the morning of the day appointed for the
production, when a note was hastily de
livered to the stu;,'0 manager saying that
the leading lady and author had lost her
voice completely, and that her physician
had ordered her not to leave the house.
She was very sorry, but advised that a
professional actress be engaged to take
her place. Here was "a pretty kettle of
fish" how to get an actress at so short
a notice. The costumes must be fitted
and the part learned before 7 p.m. The
manager thought of a friend of his, Mrs.
Addie Plunkett, Charles Plunkett's wife,
who had just closed her season with
1 .vrence Barrett and who was then at
Uberty. lie sent for her and requested
her to return with the messenger. She
did so, and after a long talk with the
stage manager consented to rehearse the
part. She was nervous, of course.
In the garden scene her sister's lover
has discovered her hiding place and
they are having .a loving interview, the
heroine remaining on the lookout for
interruptions, which may occur in the
form of the sultan's servants, which
would mean death to the intruder. At
a certain cue the heroine rushes up to
her sister's fiance and tells him to "Fly!
fly for your life some one approaches!"
and the lover is pushed through a wick
et and escapes. Mrs. Plunkett rehearsed
the scene carefully and told the leading
man that in case she should forget to
say all. the lines she would make him
understand when it was time for him to
make his exit. Thus it was settled be
tween them. Evening came, and the
time for the curtain to be rung up ar
rived. Most of the performers had stage
fright, one fair amateur declaring that
she had entirely forgotten her lines and
was sure that she would faint from
The performance began and Mrs.
Plunkett struggled bravely through her
part, dropping an occasional speech now
and then, but with professional tact she
covered up her mistakes so that the au
dience was none the wiser. When the
garden scene was reached the lover ap
peared in good time and she stood guard
until the proper cue was given. ' It came
all right, but alas for Mrs. Plunkett, she
had f orgottep her lines. When she heard
the sultan's guard approach she rushed
to tbe lover and said, "Away! begone!"
but she received no response from that
gentleman. She pushed him and tried
to get him to go through the wicket, as
agreed upon, but he refused to budge an
inch, and said to her m a stage whisper,
"Say 'Fly! fly!'" but Mrs. Plunkett was
beyond speech by this time, so she con
tinued to push him toward the wicket.
Her efforts were useless, however, foi
he resisted and declared he would not
go until she said, " 'Fly! fly! for your
life, some one approaches,' so the audi
ence can hear j-ou." Still she could not
speak, but with one herculean effort
she gave him a tremendous push that
sent him flying through the wicket and
into some stage bushes which had been
artistically arranged at the back of the
stage. When the performance was over
Mrs. Plunkett heaved a sigh of relief
and said, "This is the first and last ama
teur performance forme!" New York

THE BIG BONANZA MINE. .
A totoklna' Mot la the O round Oat at
Which Mau-kay Took 150,000,000.
I was strolling with Mac-kay home
years ago in Virginia City, when we
looked down a smoking cavity in thu
ground that was soon lot in thu dark
nea, and at tho mouth of which a wind
lass was slowly grinding. "Out of that
hole," he said, "I took $150,000,000 in
bullion." This was one of the famous
bonanza mines, whose history all men
know. The Cig Bonanza, as it wan
called, and as Mackay described it to me
at the time, was a "kidney" or a
"pocket of crude ore, about as high as
the steeple of Trinity and in area as
large as the City Hall park of New York.
This ore, shoveled out and reduced,
gave the stupendous yield to which Mr.
Mackay referred, and was the founda
tion of the Bonanza fortunes.
Associated with him were three other
gentlemen, whose names were to win n
worldwide mining fame James Q. Fair,
afterward senator from Nevada, whose
skill as a mining expert had attracted
the attention of Mackay; William
O'Brien, and James C. Flood. O'Brien
and Flood had come to California an
friends in the Argonaut days, and had
like other men taken their humble parts
in the creation of the Pacific states. In
those times men who were to lie major
generals in the army drove drays for a
bving. Others who were to become
luminous in statesmanship and juris
prudence joyfully mended their own
trousers and washed their own linen.
They were "partners," a term that
Bret Harte has pathetically explained
in one of his exquisite stories. "Part
ners," that is to say, friends, with a
friendship such as we who live outside
of the atmosphere of adventure which
infolded the Argonaut days cannot un
derstand, and which would be but
vaguely explained if we compared it to
the love of man and woman.
"Billy was my partner once," as Mr.
Flood said to me one day in Menlo,
while we were looking at the portrait of
O'Brien; "Billy was my partner once.
He is my partner now, will be my part
ner forever" a speech which made a
deep impression, coming as it did from
the lips of one of the most resolute, self
restrained and undemonstrative of men.
Flood was the financial representative
and the ally of the two young miners
who were at work on the Bonanza;
O'Brien, the "partner" in the firm, be
cause Flood could have no interest he
did not share.
O'Brien passed away in Bonanza
times Flood not many months since, in
Germany. He was a brave, independ
ent, reserved, conscientious man, es
pecially charming and true in the higher
relations of life no better citizen, no
truer friend "in all that goes toward
the true development of manhood, the
best man I have ever known," as Mackay
said to me when the hour of irrevocable
silence had fallen. "I know only one
man in the world that can break me,
and that is Mackay." This Flood said
to me and I note it as showing the strong
links which in those days bound the
Bonanza firm and gave it a strength
and a confidence which were the basis
of its power. John Russell Young in
Beauty as National Trait.
Is there any handsome people on the
face of the globe? Now, we may set
aside . the black and yellow and poly
chrome races in general, many of whom
are well shaped and like bronze statues
to look upon, but who do not come up
to the Aryan standard in features and
color. Leaving these children of nature
out of the question, it may be confessed
that there is no race among whom beau
ty is common. If the ancient Greeks
were like their statues, then there once
was a beautiful race, but it is not so
certain that they did not idealize them
selves a good deal. There is the more
reason to guess this, as when they have
to represent a barbarian, say a Gaul oi
a German or a professional prize fighter,
they make these people as handsome as
themselves, though in a rougher way.
There is a famous bronze statue of a
boxer, who might be taken for an orator
or a poet were it not for his heavy metal
studded gloves. Thus it may be deemed
that there is a great proportion of the
ideal in these statues, vases, coins and fig
ures, where every one is so graceful and
goodly. Every nation has a high opin
ion of its own charms. The French
pride themselves on small feet, and it is
certain that their women walk very lit
tle, and have cunning bootmakers.
Kept the Least for Himaelf.
Three ragged newsboys were trying
to sell the earlier editions of the after
noon papers. A man carrying a large
basket of fine looking oranges on his
shoulder passed close by. The motion
of his body loosened one of the biggest
and ripest and it fell to the ground. The
man kept on, not noticing or caring foi
the loss. The orange lay upon the pave
ment for about half a minute unseen.
Then the largest of the three ragged
urchins spied it, and with a cry of de
light he ran over and picked it up. It
was natural to suppose that he would
proceed to eat it all himself, but instead
of doing so he called his companions and
exhibited his find. The3 ej-ed it greed
ily. Without any request from them for a
share in the coveted fruit tbe finder di
vided the orange into three parts and
gave his fellow newsboys each a part.
The smallest part he reserved for him
self. It was only a small thing in itself,
yet it proved, I thought, that there was
something noble hidden under the ragged
garments of that little urchin. New
