KTHE THEATRE FROM THE INSIDE
That there are five thousand theatres
in America, and that one million and a
half people attend them each week-day
I night, spending seventy millions of
.dollars a year on theatre-going, are the
i surprising facts with which Mr. Fraklin
iFyles, the dramatic editor of the New
York Sun, will open an important series
in the next Issue of the Ladies' Home
(Journal. The series will be called "The
Theatre and ItB People' and will run
through seven numbers of the magazine,
: lavishly illustrated with pictures made
. by twelve different artists. The articles
will treat of every phrase of the theatre,
the play and the actor, from the inside
and will toll how a theatre is managed,
:the actual money which playa have
made; how an actor la trained and what
the actors are actually paid; bow a play
Is written and what the authors receive;
: how a play is rehearsed; the first night
of a play; how the actresses "make up'
and what they use; and in a minute way
the two last articles will show what goes
on behind the scenes on a stage during
a performance. It is a curious fact
that this will be the first time that the
theatre and the actor have ever been
exhaustively treated in a magazine, and
that there h no book on the subject in
HIS FIDUS ACHATES.
Mrs. Witherby I met Mre. Planking
ton this morning, and she told me about
Witherby What about him?
Mra. Witherby Oh, the way he has
been cutting up!
Witherby Is that really bo? By
Jove, I never should have suspected such
a thing. It's too bad that he hasn't,
any moro self-respect. What's the
fellow been doing, anyway?
Mrs.' Witherby-Oh, everything! She
eaye that while she was away, last
Summer, he carried on at a great rate.
Witherby How did she find it out?
Mra. Witherby Oh, someone told her
about the noise in the bouse.
Witherby Some kind and thoughtful
neighbor, I Buppose, who only had her
good at heart. Well, well, what did be
eay about it?

Kood in him. Did he tell her all the
'things he did?
Mrs. Wltherby-Ob, yes. He drank!
Witherby You don't say! I suppose
ho asked the boys around, and sat up
all hours of the night playing poker?
MrB. Witbnrby Yes, and other dread
Witherby-Sad, isn't it? Beats all
why a man should want to make a
beast of himself. Well, I sympathizes
with her. Such a nice woman, too!
WLat else did she say?
Mrs. Witherby (carelessly) Oh, she
mentioned the fact that when she and I
were away, this Summer, you and he
were inseparable. The Housemaid.

Ingenious Sounding; Apparatas.
Rapid-test soundings were rcqulrod
in some work on a railway line be
tween Paris and Havre, where the caBt
iron viaduct of Bezous was replaced
by an arch bridge alongside. Tho old
foundations for six channel piers were
removed to the bottom of the river. It '
was required that the river bed should
bo carefully leveled. After it had been
dredged the bottom was explored by
means of a horizontal bar of Iron
about twenty feet long, which wa3 sus
pended at each end from a framework
uniting two flatboats In catamaran
fashion. This beam was lowered close
to the bottom and tho boats were
gradually moved along in the direction
tranpverse to the length of the bar.
When the scraper encountered no Ir
regularity the suspending chains hung
vertically, but as soon as either on-1
was deflected by contact with any ob
struction an electric circuit was closed,
which caused an alarm to bo rune.
Tho boat was stopped and the obstruc
tion located by means of Hounding
poles. In this way small stones down
to a diameter of four inches were eas
ily located and the bed of the river
was leveled to within that amount of
Irregularity. This method proved rapid
and successful. Savannah News.
The Heawon'M Henawtlon.
Tho sensation of the seaaon in New
port hta been MIbs Virginia Fair's pet
donkey, Persimmon, and his appear
ance at Mrs. Stuyveeant Fish's dance.
The dance was given for Miss Marlon
Fish, the dric-ter of e house, In
Mrs. Fish's new villa. When the gay
ety had well begun Persimmon ap
peared in the ballroom decked in flow
ers, with his shoeless hoofs glided,
hitched to a tiny cart In which were
the "favors" for the dance, which were
baskets of flowers tied with white rib
bons. Persimmon behaved nobly. He
had been In the eye of the 400 before,
when, In 1895, he won a prize at tha
pony, parade given by Mrs. Calvin S.

that silly follow?
Second Cannibal Yob, you know I
like simple food.
Every machine politician tries to gt
himself vindicated by being elected to
some oflice before he retires to private
life. He seems to consider the public
a door mat on which he can wipe his
feet before passing into history.
You say your wife is starving. Can't
you get work?
Yes, sir; but sho can't?
