In my peregrinations about New York
the other day I chanced upon a well known
leading man idling away an hour with a
cigar in an uptown dramatic agency. As
I shook hands with him I noticed some
thing listless in his manner, a faint, sad
fatigue in his eyes.
But on inquiring I found the soft, die
away expression was due to reflection on
the vicissitudes he had passed through
during a recent tour.
SHE SWEPT THE TOUPEE CLEAN OTT.
"The dramatic profession is all very
well as seen on the stage when the curtain
is up, but when the old man, presuming on
his 'past,' has a tendency to making
rhymes in the wings at your expense, and
the villain eats peppermint just before he
comes on to thrust bis face close to yours,
it's quite another thing.
"I had some words with the villain one
night between the acta. It must have
been in the early morning hours, but still
dark, when I was awakened by a hard
breathing at my door.
"It was the villain. Ho was drunk, and
had come to renew the quarrel. I got up,
lit the gas and swept him under the bed,
where he snored until morning.
"This tiff with the villain over, I had a dis
agreement with the leading lady. The lead
ing lady had small feet, and clad in pretty
satin slippers, too, but I wouldn't let her
stand on my neck for all that; so we quar
reled, and I had the best of the argument,
but her revenge was humiliating, com
plete. I that is unfortunately my hair
was is just a little scant in front'there,
and I had a small toupee made.
"In one of the scenes I was required to
embrace the leading lady effusively, and I
did it, although she furtively glared at me.
Then while I held her in my arms she had
to pass her hand over my brow and say
"She swept her white hand over my
head, sure enough, but so firmly, so spite
fully, that she swept the toupee clean off.
Oh, the laughter, the catcalls! I hear them
yet. In mercy to my defenseless head tho
curtain was rung down.
"On the train one day the ingenue, a
pretty blonde, confided to me that she
would 'just love to have copper colored
hair.' I asked her why she did not dye it
if she wanted to. With a sudden, piteous
uplifting of her eyes she said she had no
one to help her. A great, resistless sym-
pathy surged into my glance as it rested on
the little roll of yellow hair below her hat.

Every seat in the bridge car was occu

Her arms were full of bundles and she ap
peared to be weary. As she tried to clntch
a strap she dropped a package, and in
stooping to pick it up stumbled. She
would have fallen, too, had not a gentle
man sprang to her aid.
With an outstretched arm he helped her
to regain her balance, secured the stray
bundle and then led her to the seat he had
"Take this scat, madam, if you please,"
For a moment the negress hesitated and
then sat down, after incoherently murmur
ing her thanks.
The episode created a sensation among
the passengers, all of whom were men.
As tha.unknown gentleman was leaving
the car a friend was overheard to ask him:
George, are you getting near sighted
"Xo; why do you ask such a question?"
"Why? Because you gave up your seat
to that negress. I think you are over
straining yourself in trying to be polite."
"Not at all, my dear fellow. I gave up
my seat to her simply because she was a
woman. I should have dqspised myself
for remaining in my seat because she was
black." New York Herald.
What 3Iake a Boy Popular?
"What makes a boy popular? Manliness.
During the war how schools and colleges
followed popular boysl These young lead
ers were the many boys whose hearts could
be trusted. The boy who respects his
mother has leadership in him. The boy
who is careful of his sister is a knight. The
boy who will never violate his word and
who will pledge his honor to his own heart
and change not will have the confidence of
his fellows. The boy who defends the
weak will one day become s hero among
the strong. The boy who will never hurt
the feelings of any one will one day find
himself in the atmosphere of universal
sympathy. "I know not," once said the
great Governor Andrew, "what record of
sin may await me in another world; but
this I do know: I never yet despised a man

Gold in Colore.
When gold is dissolved in nitro-muriatic
acid it forms chloride of gold, a beautiful
yellow liquid used by gilders, photogra
phers and others. When this solution is di
luted with water, and chloride of tin is
added, metallic gold is precipitated as a
beautiful purple powder, which is used for
gilding and coloring porcelain and glass.
This powder is called "purple of Cassius,"
from the nam of its discoverer, Andreas
Cassias, of Leyden, who made it for tho
first time in tb year 1655.
In gilding porcelain it is spread upon the
pattern by meaw of & paste, and by the
action of heat in tbe oven it takes the or
dinary golden hue and brilliancy, but by
modifying the composition of the paste it
yields also rose and purple colors. When
a small quantity of it u mixed with the
materials used in making glass the glass
produced has & magnificent ruby tint, seen
to perfection in tbe well known Bohemian
glass. Chambers' Journal.

From a historical aud political point of
view gold is perhaps the most interesting
of all the metals. Since tho earliest ages
mankind has bad an instinctive attraction
for it. Some years ago a celebrated pro
fessor admitted three little children, who
could only just walk, into a room where
there was a gold ball and a silver ball, each
exactly of the same size, upon the floor.
They all instinctively stretched out their
little hands toward the gold ball, and did
not appear to toko the slightest notice of
"Ita peculiar properties and its scarcity
have rendered gold more valuable than
any other metal," says Dr. Thomas Thom-
son. But gold is only valuablo on account
j of its comparative rarity and some of its
I properties, which are exceedingly remark-
aoie, sucn as its inalterability when kept
exposed to the air. its ductility, and its
uiuuQuuiiik). iu uiiici morula it is iur
less valuable than iron, which, if we except
aluminium, is the most common metal of
the earth's strata.
Tho attempts of the alchemists to con
vert other metals into gold form an inter
esting and not altogether unimportant
period in the history of the development
of science. This period extends more or
less over twelve centuries, and though
modern chemistry has since been estab
lished on a firm basis there still exibt hero
and there in Europe a few persons who
propagate the ideas of the alchemists, and
believe that it is not only possiblo to trans
mute metals, but that as chemical science
progresses so will medical knowledge.

It is fortunato that some rules in relation !
to repletion are no longer observed. One
' which was noticed among the Ilurons and
' Algonquius of Canada by the early French
missionaries, anu siyieu Dy tnem ie iestln
a manser tout, consisted in observing, as a
religious custom, a gluttonous obligation
which sometimes ended in tho death of the
human hog. In observing this curious cus
tom, which all old accounts say was often
attended with much loss of life, the com
municant was expected to eat every parti
cle of food that was set before him.
A festival somewhat of the same nature,
celebrated in "cultured England" dunng
the reign of Henry IV, and even later, was
called "glutton raabs." A less dangerous,
because regulated, custom of repletion ivas
formerly, according to Brahman tradition,
very prevalent in India. Before commeno
ing the carouse, however, the wily Brah
ma ng took the precaution to bind their ab
domens with bands of straw; their modi
fied "glutton mass" was not to eat every
thine in iight, but only until the straw
bands should burst. St. Louis Republic.
