Willie's Experience on the Stage.
Willie Vnn Wyck, formerly a journal
isl, dtciiled to go on the stage a few
weeks ago. One day Business-Manager
McDonough discovered in Van
Wyck just the talents he had been
searching for. Until there was a favor
able opening on the staiie the young
man was to act as the business-manager's
secretary, with privileges to use
the stage mornings. A week later,
Van Wyck abruptly ceased his dramatic

right," he explained. "I came here to
be prepared for the Mage, and my
training did not agree with me. I
didn't mind porting lithographs, writing
bright paragraphs lor the press, getting
the managers old-fashioned silk hat
pressed, showing ladies to the boxes,
sweeping out the office, bringing the
stage-manger chewing tobacco, sitting
in achair for tl.e strong fakir to hoist me
with his teeth, washing bottles in the
bar or working the growler for the
soubrettcs, but when it came to shovel
ing coal in the boiler all night, then I
quit. I wouldn't have cared so much
for the work, but the way Mr. Mc
Donough tried to jolly me was insult
"'I came here to act,' I pleaded,
'and not to shovel coal.' McDonough
had the nerve to look me squarely in
the eye and say:
" 'I'm a little disappointed in you,
my boy. Vou are an ingrate. You
are learning the rudiments of a noble
profession at the expense of my ex
perience and patience. I simply have

The foreign vote of Chicago is stead
ily increasing. A year ago it was 49 4
of the total vote of the city, and in the
election just held there is little doubt
that it exceeded one half of the whole
number. When a Chicago voter is
registered he has to state his birthplace.
If he does not tell the truth it is because
he claims to be American when he was
really foreign born. Hence the data
furnished by these queries do not make
the number of foreign-bom voters
larger than it actually is. A comparison
of tables published in iSSS and 1892
show that in four years the native bom
voters have fallen off three and one
half per cent. The Germans have
held their own. The Irish have lost,
but they still have their grip on the
offices. Most of the other nationalities
have gained slightly, the most nuticc
able being Austria, Sweden and Ho
hernia. The increase of the foreign
element in Chicago is shown clearly by
the federal census. In 1880 31 per
cent. 01 the total population was born
outside of the United States. Ten
years later the percentage had risen to
41.9. It appears, also, that of 650,060
persons born in this country living in
Chicago in 1890, 412,000 were the
children of foreign-born parents.
The highest point attained by a rail
road in the United States is in the
Rocky mountains,. 9,027 feet above the
sea. Trains on the Callao Oroya line
in Peru are now ascending to a height
as far above this great elevation as the
total height of Mount Washington. In
other words, when a train on the Oroya
line enters the the Galera tunnel to

is the highest elevation attained by any
railroad in the world. It was on Sep

from Callao passed through the tunnel
to the eastern side of the mountains.
