when Booth, as usual, lapsed into silent

late stories anent professional experi

on "deadheads." Robson had just
finished an especially funny tale about
one of these managerial "bete noirs"
when the deep voice of Booth was heard
"I think, gentlemen, that 1 can give
jou an anecdote about one of the tribe
that is probably unique."
"Let's hear it, Edwin, by all means,"
Booth fixed his somber eyes on the
sunset and began: "It was during the
the Buffalo exposition before returning first visit that I made to the south after
the close of the Civil war. We were
playing in a little town in Alabama.
In my mail one morning I found a letter

Dear Sir My wife and Belt have al

want to see you play very much, but

I am sure you will not refuse this re

Dr. J. P. Lord, who has been in Ger
many studying surgery under the most
deepening of the gloom which marked
Booth's facial expression from the day
of the tragedy. Robson told the writer
that the actor unquestionably realized
that, if his brother had reached Wash
ington alive he would have met a ter
rible fate at the hands of the mob, and
hence he felt grateful to the man who,
with a rifle ball, averted this possibility.
I shot an arrow into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where ;
For, so swiftly it flew, the sight
Could not follow it in its flight.
I breathed a song into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For who has sight so keen and strong
That it can follow the flight of song?
Long, long afterward, in an oak
I found the arrow, still unbroke ;
ThOe for the song, from beginning to end,
I found it again in the heart of a friend.
