"Can't help that," said tho lordly

"Oh, yon don't?" retortod tho head of
tho party. "Well, it will cost you some

It is foolish to dwell on tho hermel,
and I havo forgotten it. I only remem

Although it was publio placo and I
am a retiring lady, I burst wildly forth
into a clarion shout of joy. It is so sel

something to hoc. It did mo good for a
wholo day. Sending n counterfeit half

game nnd a littlo too sharp.

Few havo any idea of the money
pent by the managers of London thea
ters in procuring tho curtain which
hides tho stago from publio view, re
marked awoll known theatrical fur
fisher to a reporter. Take, for instance,
tho glorious curtain at Sir Henry Irv
ing's theater, the Lyceum. That cur
tain, if it cost a penny, coat at least
1,000 guineas. I am told that 1,000
yards of beautiful blood red plush were
used to mnko it complete, and for it Six
Henry Irving is indebted to tho Baron
ess Burdett-Contts, who somo years ago
generously mado him a present of tho
curtain as n tributo to his artistio gen
ius. A very expensivo curtain is that used
at tho Prince of Wales' thcator, Coven
try street, now occupied by Mr. Arthur
Roberts. Its cost was about 000. It is
mado of boiler plate, is entirely fire
proof and weighs no less than six tons.
No flro can get from the stage to tho
auditorium or vice versa, as the top and
bottom of tho curtain respectively rest
against and upon n solid wall of brick
work. I beliovo this, as well as other
curtains of tho somo kind, was tho in

Perhaps tho most beautiful theater
curtain in Loudon whoro tho finest
curtains in tho world are to bo seen
are thoso at tho Lyceum, to which I
havo referred, tho Palace Theater of
Varieties, and the Savoy. Tho Palaco
curtain is a real work of art, and Mr,
u uyiy uarto must navo lavished a
small fortuuo upon its mako. It is a
beautiful dream of gold and various oth
er colored silks, and something liko 000
square yards of silk wcro used in its
manufacture. I am told that tho director
of tho Paris Opera was ttlmast thunder
struck when, during Mr. Carte's produc
tion of "Ivanhoo," he saw tho curtain
for tho first time.
The Savoy curtain nmst havo cost
300 if a penny, its material being of
tho finest gold plush. Another expen
sivo curtain was that bought by Mr.
Charles Wyudham for tho Criterion. It
cost over 120, being mado by Maplo.
Most of tho other London houses, and
probably all the country thoators, con
tout themselves with tho old fashioned
curtain of canvas, sometimes with a
sccno and sometimes with imitation cur
tains painted upon it. Tho cost of thcFo
varies of course, and may run from 20
to 200, according to tho amount of
work put into them and tho artist en

Once when tho miners of a big ant lira

eirorts in other directions wero tried,
until tho directors otlered to meet u
delegation of tho miners in Now York

of the brawniest miners iu tho region
wero solected as dolcgates great rugged

officials and stated their caso, which
was that at tho prevailing rate of wuges
they could hardly get enough to oat.
The mutter was hold under adviso

luncheon. Then came tho most amazing
display of appotltcs that has over boon
seen beforo or sinco, nud tho colored
waitors turned palo as they saw a dish
intended for the eutire party retained
by ono man, who speedily mado away
with tho contents. Each man heemed as

A chooso was procured, and tho directors

sultation, and after awhilo tho president
announced: "Gentlemen, wo havo decid
