Behind the Scenes at the The

Avoon the acts whMu the curtain is

nailo to sit so long and tediously for
ho ring1 of the boll.
To watch thu show from the wings
nit once Is enough to convince the
iveragu Individual that there Is , af-
.or all , a reason and a real ono for
every mlnuto of tlmo that elapses be-
weon the end of onu act and the be

Tlio pooplcLon the stage of a play-

vlngs and rolls and roles seldom see

of tluu piece. They are too busy.
I'ho stage hands are busy every mliv
ito while the curtain Is up getting
oady to maku the shifts and niaimg-

in. And when the curtain rings down
they are about the busiest set you

Getting the Wolves Ready.
Every bit of scenery Is handled In
narrow strips anil every strip has to
1)0 ) untied and put away before an
other can take Its place. In such a
spectacular production as "Queen ol
the Highway , " which was put on in
Norfolk Tuesday night , and which Is
far too heavy for ono night stands
anywhere , there are wolves to bo gotten
ton ready for ono act and horses for
another so that the animal men are
on the go all the while.
So much has to bo done , whose ef

the pit. For instance , In that show
the wolves had to bo screenei
off by means of a wire cage , which
was unseen by the average pair o
eyes In tlio audience. This cage hai

Actors Dress Quickly.
While all of this change In the
scenery is being made , the actor foil
are changing their costumes am
they have to do a little more of the
hurry up work themselves , than Is
usual with the vain young womai
dressing for a ball. However fas
the scenes are shifted , the actors
must bo ready for their entrance 01

Sometimes during the progress o
the piece , ( ho actors have spells o
rest and then It is that they loa

or , on some occasions , go themselves
The methods employed to get var
Ions effects are sometimes Interest
ing. For instance in making the
sound of liorsos galloping in the dls
tance , the hollowed shells of cocoa
nuts are pounded upon bricks , pro
ducing a loud or soft nloso by varla
tlons in the pressure.
Two or three men make the racko
of a howling mob by simply putting
on the mob pedal to their voices am
keeping It up. '
Don't Stay Together.
While a company appears togotho
every night as a family within thorn

Some take the high class hotels am

Nothing so Wonderful in the f
Days of Specialism.
Dr. Caldwell.
The success of Dr. Caldwell Is at
tributed to her special study of spec
ialism. Dr. Caldwell , student , philan
thropist and physician of wide repu
tation , having given her entire tlmo
and practice to a line of speclfc. dis
eases , which enables her Irom long
oxperlenco ln handling these troubles
to certainly come forward as a master
specialist. Her faculty for mastering :
disease , her ability to diagnose , and
her plan of treatment Is excelled
by few other physicians. Dr. Caldwell ,
although a young woman In life , a
plain woman , and one who Js used to
the ups and downs In life , puts her
self on a level with her patients and
does not pretend to practice the old
plan of fashion , which Is to look wise
and say nothing. She knows disease ,
and the spot where located , and most
of all she knows from experience ,
from what she has done In the past ,
she can certainly do for others In the
future. It Is said by Dr. Csldwell's
friends that she can diagnose a dis
ease of any patient without asking
them a single question , that being
the case , she Is not likely to doctor
them for a wrong ailment ; she will
not take an Incurable case and lead
the patient to believe that she can
cure them when there Is really no hope
for them. Her business Is large and
she has plenty to do , even , at times ,
more than she can do , without taking
Incurable diseases and deceiving her
patients. Dr. Caldwell is a graduate
from one of the best schools in Amer
ica. She has practiced her profession
In some of the principal hospitals of
this country. Her specialty comprises
that class of diseases which the or
dinary home doctor falls to cure , such
as female diseases , heart diseases ,
diseases of children and the many
special Diseases of hidden nature.
Her practice Is mostly among the
plain , hard working people who are
unable to como to her city office for
treatment ; she Is reasonable In her
charges and very lenient with those
who are not able to pay. She Is char
itable , and It Is said has never known
to refuse to treat a patient who Is
worthy and In need. A number of the
Important cases that wo hereby take
the liberty to publish , which might
bo of Interest to some who wish to
know more of Dr. Caldwell's great
