" CHAPTER I
There being no plays to be acted at
the Red Bull, because of the plague, and
the players all cast adrift for want of
employment, certain of no, to wit, Jack
Dawson and his daughter Moll, Bed
Herring and myself, clubbed our moneys
together to buy a store of dresses, paint
ed cloths, and the like, with a cart and
horse to carry thorn, and thus provided
set forth to travel the country and turn
an honest penny, in those parts where
the terror of pestilence had not yet
turned men's stomachs against the pleas
ures of life. And here, at our setting
out, let me show what kind of company
we were. First, then, for our master,
Jack: Dawson, who on no occasion was
to be given a second place. He was a
hale, jolly fellow, who would eat a
pound of beef for his breakfast (when
he could get it) and make nothing of
half a gallon of ale therewith a very
masterful man, but kindly withal, and
pleasant to look at when not oontraried,
With never a line of care in his face,
though turned of 60. He played our hu
. tnorous parts, but he had a sweot voioe
for singing of ditties and could fetch a
tear as readily as a laugh, and he was
also exceeding nimble at a dance, which,
was the strangest thing in the world,
oonsidering his great girth. Wife he had
none, but Moll Dawson was his daugh
ter, who was a, most sprightly, merry
little wench, but no miracle for beauty,
being neither child nor woman at this
time; surprisingly thin, as if her frame
had grown out of proportion with her
flesh, so that her body looked all arms
and legs, and her head all month and
eyes, with a great tousled mass of
chestnut hair, which (off the stage) was
as often as not half tumbled over her
shoulder. But a quicker little baggage
at mimicry (she would play any part,
from an urchin of 10 to a crone of four
) soore), or a livelier at dancing of Bran-
ties or the single Coranto never was, I
' do think, and as merry as a lark.
Of Bed Herring I need only here say
that he was the most tearing villain
imaginable on the stage and off it the
most civil spoken, honest seeing young
gentleman. Nor need I trouble to give
aYery lengthy description of myself.
What my character was will appear
hereafter, and, as for my looks, the less
I say about them the better. Being
"BohlethIng of "a soholar and a poet, I
had nearly died of starvation, when
Jack Dawson gave me a footing on the
stage, where I would play the part of a
hero in one act, a lackey in the second
and a Merry Andrew in the third,
soraping a tune on my fiddle to fill up
. We had designed to return to London
as soon as the plague abated, unless we
were favored with extraordinary good
, fortune, and so when we heard that the
sickness was certainly past and the citi
Bens recovering of their panio we, being
by this time heartily sick of our ven
ture, which at the best gave us but beg
garly recompense, set about to retrace
onr steps with cheerful expectations of
better times. But, coming to Oxford,
We there learned that a prodigious fire
had burned all London down, from the
A . Tower to Ludgate, so that were we
' ... there we should find no house to play
in. This laid us fiat in our hopes and
set us again to our vagabond enter
prise, and so for six months more we
Booured the country in a most miserable
Wight, he roads being exceedingly foul
- and folks more humored of nights to
drowse in their chimneys than to sit in
a draft barn and witness our perform-
ances, and then about the middle of
February we in a kind of desperation got
back togain to London,, only to find that
we must go forth again, the town still
lying in ruins and no one disposed to
any kind of amusement except in high
places, where such actors as we were
held in contempt
So we, with our hearts in our boots,
as one may say, set out again to seek
our fortunes on the Cambridge road, and
here, with no better luck than elsewhere,
for at Tottenham Cross we had the mis
chance to sot fire to the barn wherein we
Were playing, by a candle falliDg in
some loose straw, whereby we did injury
to the extent of a shilling or two, for
which the farmer would have us pay a
pound, and Jack Dawson stoutly refus-
ing to satisfy his demand he sends for
the constable, who locks us all up in the
cage that night, to take us before the
magistrate in the morning. And we
, .found to our cost that this magistrate
'' had as little justice as mercy in his com
position, for though he lent a patient
ear to the farmer's case, he would not
listen to Jack Dawson's argument, which
was good enough, being to the effect that
we had not as much as a pound among
us, and that he would rather be hanged
than pay it if he had, and when Eed
Herring (seeing the kind of Puritanical
fellow he was) urged that, since the
f damage was not done by any design of
ours, it must be regarded as a visitation
of Providence, he says :" Very good. If
it be the will of Providence that one
should be scourged, I take it as the di
' vine purpose that I should finish the
business to scourge the other." An'd
therewith he orders the constable to take
what money we have from our pockets
and clap us in the stocks till sundown
for payment of the difference. So in the
itooks we three poor men were stuck for
n six mortal hours, which was a wicked,
"' cruel thing indeed,, with the wind blow
X.ing a sort of rainy snow about our ears,

little Moll brought us a sheet for a
cover, and tired not in giving us kind
words of comfort.
At 5 o'clock the constable unlocked us
from our vile confinement, and I do be
lieve we should have fallen upon him
and done him a mischief for his pains
there and then but that we were all
frozen as stiff as stones with sitting in
the cold so long, and indeed it was some
time ere we could move our limbs at alL
However, with much ado, we hobbled
on at the tail of our cart, all three very
bitter, but especially Bed Herring, who
cursed horridly and as I had never heard
him curse off the stage, saying he would
rather have staid in London to carry
bricks for the gentry than join us again
in this damnable adventure, etc. And
that which incensed him the more was
the merriment of our Moll, who, seated
on the side of the cart, could do nothing
better than make sport of our discon
tent But there was no malice in her
laughter, which, if it sprang not from
sheer love of mischief, arose maybe from
overflowing joy at our release.
Coming at dusk to Edmonton and
finding a fine new inn there, called the
Bell, Jack Dawson leads the cart into
the yard, we following without a word
of demur, and after putting up our trap,
into the warm parlor we go and call for
supper as boldly as you please. Then,
when we had eaten and drunk till we
could no more, all to bed like princes,
which, after a night in the cage and a
day in the stocks, did seem like a very
paradise. But how we were to pay for
this entertainment not one of us knew,
nor did we greatly care, Deing maae
quite reckless by our necessities. It was
the next morning, when we met togeth
er at breakfast, that our faces betrayed
some compunctions, but these did not
prevent us eating prodigiously. "For, ' '
whispers Eed Herring, "if we are to be
hanged, it may as well be for a sheep as
However, Jack Dawson, getting on
the right side of the landlord, who seem-,
ed a very honest, decent man for an inn
keeper, agreed with him that we should
give a performance that night in a cart
shed very proper to our purpose, paying
him half of our taking in payment of
our entertainment This did Jack, think
ing from our late ill luck we should get
at the most a dozen people in the six
penny benches and a score standing at
twopence a head. But it turned out, as
the cunning landlord had foreseen, that
our hanger was packed olose to the very
door, in consequence of great numbers
coming to the town in the afternoon to
see a bull baited, so that when Jack
Dawson closed the doors and came be
hind the scene to dress for his part he
told us he had as good as 5 in his
pocket With that to cheer us we played
our tragedy of ' The Broken Heart' ' very
merrily, and after that, changing our
dress in a twinkling, Jack Dawson, dis
guised as a wild man, and Moll, as a
wood nymph, came on to the stage to
dance a pastoral, while I, in the fashion
of a satyr, stood on one side plying the
fiddle to their footing. Then, all being
done, Jack thanks the company for their
indulgence and bids 'em good night
And now, before all the company are
yet out of the place, and while Jack
Dawson is wiping the sweat from his
face, comes the landlord and asks pretty
bluntly to be paid his share of our earn

Qo to 117 So. 10th St. for R. R. and
Epilepsy 20 Years.
Cured by Dr. Miles' Nervine.
A few years ago, Mr. L. W. Gallahor, was
an extensive, successful expert manu
facturer of lumber products. Attacked with
epilepsy, he was obliged to give up his busi
ness. The attacks came upon him most in
opportunely. One time falling from a carri
age, at another down stairs, and often in the
street Once he foil down a shaft in the
mill, his Injuries nearly proving fatal. Mr.
Gallaher writes from Milwaukee, Feb. 18, '95.
"There are none more miserable than epi
leptics. For 20 years I suffered with epilep
tic fits, having as high as five In one night. I
tried any number of physicians, paying to
one alone, a fee of 1300.00 and have done
little for years but search for something to
help mo, and have taken all the leading
remedies, but received no benefit. A year ago
my son, Ghas. S. Gallaher, druggist at 101
Beed St., Milwaukee, gave me Dr. Miles'
Restorative Nervine, and I tried It with
gratifying results. Ilave had but two fits
since I began taking it. I am better now In
every way than I have been In 20 years."
