Ind you wonder at the array of immacu
late linen, cigarettes and Prince Alberts
exhibited by these fly by night stars,
whose ways of securing an existence are
as ingenious as they are manifold. The
men, with but fow exceptions, are bar
bers or waiters who do not work at their
trade, as they aro either too light for
heavy work or too heavy for light work.
The ladies are as a rule the possessors
of good homes, which they desert to
follow their cherished calling.
A company of Keystone talent leaves
Philadelphia to play the state of New
Jersey. Their stock iti trade consists
of a $25 bank roll and several bun
dles —not trunks—of wardrobe. Of course
thoy are in possession of their ability,
Which is not appreciated by New Jersey
Datives, and after making several stands,
pursued by angry hotel keepers, they go
ashore on the rocks, and with one ac
cord all noses point toward the Quaker
City. The ladies have little trouble in
lecuring transportation, as they aro ex
perienced in the art of telling the con
ductors a story calculated to soften a
heart of steel. Thoy ride, and before
reaching the Delaware river have
"touched" the accommodating ticket

pay their ferry fare.
Not ao with the men, as they care not
for varnish covered cars, but prefer rid

as a side door sleeper, but which the rail
road calls a box car. The comedian has
secured possession of his valise, which he
has expressed to his destination. On
reaching home he redeems it from the
express company and hies himself to
some theatrical hotel, where he secures
room and board for a week, at tho end
of which time he is unable to pay and
informs the hotel man that he is expect
ing to sign with Manager So-and-so and
will settle in a day or two. After hear
ing this song for four weeks the landlord
takes charge of his grip and advises him
to find other quarters.
Happy thought! His friend, Tom
Blower, has arrived in the city, and as
Tom is dressed—in their language—out
of sight, our comedian hunts him up,
and after a short confab with him Tom
can be seen walking in the direction of
the hotel lately occupied by Comedy.
Reaching there, he calls at the desk for
our comedian and is informed by the
proprietor that he is not in, whereupon
Tom becomes agitated, and in a confi
dential tone tells the hotel man that he
desires to engage Cdmedy to work tho

must get him at any price, as he is the
only man in the city acquainted with the
lines and the finest comedy exponent in
the country." Comedy now strolls in,
and Toms falls upon his chest with joy
and engages him, in tones to be over
heard by the landlord, to complete the
week with him at a salary of $50. The
landlord is happy and already hears the
jingle of the simoleons due him.

must report for dress rehearsal at onco,

Several years ago a company stranded
near Philadelphia, and all but She lead
ing man returned to New York, he re
maining with headquarters at the hotel
in which he was stopping, expecting, as
he told the country landlord, a money
order from his wife. At the end of three
weeks no money order had made its ap
pearance, and tho Thespian's trunk vas
taken into the storaroom as security by
the hotel man. Tho day follow i. .; this
move a young lady alighted from the
train and registered' at Ot hotel, and in
a very short time became acquainted
with the leading man. She wanted to
buy a trunk. He would sell her one and
stated to the innkeeper that he had a
ohance to sell his trunk and gave him
the impression that tho proceeds of the
sale ahould apply on his board bill.
The trunk was removed to the actor's
room, where the contents were taken out
of it and wrapped in a paper, after which
tho lady was called in to examine the
"keister." She was in love with the
style and make of it and paid the actor
$10 in cash for the same. The bundles
were lowered out of the window by the
actor and expressed to Philadelphia. The
lady paid her bill at the hotel, amount
ing to $1, and that afternoon left for this
city in company with the leading man,
who was none other than her husband,
and in whose pocket quietly reposed tho
baggage check for his trunk, which the
day before had been the property of tho
confiding hotel keoper, and who, to this
day, had never received a cent from the
proceeds of that sale.
■ A common practice followed by these
catch-as-catch-can managers is to give
the country hotel keeper an order for
the amount of his bill, payable at tho
box office in the town to be next played,
to which place they agreo to pay his rail
road fare. They reach tho town in the
early hours of the morning, and the
traveling hotel man is put to bed with
the company's manager, who lies awako
until he is assured that his companion
and creditor is Bound asleep, when he
arises and in a few moments is in pos
session of the order he has given on the
box ofllce, having extracted it from the
clothes of the unsuspecting sleeper, who,.
when he discovers his loss, has nothing
left to do but to return homo a muoli

CURACOA, A QUEER ISLAND.
Dependent Upon Bain For the Water Sap-,
ply—Some Odd Customs.
Curacoa is one of the queerest little is
lands of the Caribbean sea. It lies 60
miles nortli of Venezuela, is about 60
miles long and 12 or 14 wide, and it has
a population of more than 50,000.
There is no means of procuring fresh
water on the island except by saving
rainwater in reservoirs. A number of
wells have been bored under the super
vision of the Dutch government, to which
it belongs, but each ended in failure.
A curious statement regarding these
borings is made by the inhabitants of
the island. They say that in each and
every case after a certain depth was
reached the tools dropped out of sight,
indicating that there is no solid founda
tion to the island. The borings were
made in low places and through hills,
and in about 80 different places, each
with the same ultimate result. A few
wells have been dug to a lesser depth
and brackish, unpleasant tasting water
is obtained from them, fit only for man
The approach of the rainy season is
always an interesting time there. The
water in the reservoir is low at this
time, and the natives eagerly await tho
opportunity to gather a fresh supply.
Clothing is never washed there in fresh
water, but at all hours of the day the
beach is alive with women beating the
clothes with clubs on the rocks.
The houses are all built in the Dutch
style, and are mostly of stone, with tile
roofs. The streets are very narrow, in
some places so narrow that it is possible
to shake hands with the occupant of a
room across the street simply by leaning
out of the window.
There is a scarcity of young women in
the island, but an overplenty of old and
wrinkled dames. It is said the young
women leave home as soon as tbey are of
marriageable age and seek husbands in
Caracas, Venezuela, or some other South
American city. Yet there are some ol
the prettiest girls there a traveler ever
set eyes upon. They are the daughters
of Dutch fathers and Spanish mothers,
and the mingling of tho two bloods has
produced a beautiful race, which is grow
ing quite numerous there.
Three-quarters of tho population is of
African descent, or mixed African, Span
ish, Dutch and Indian. A few Indians,
said to bo descendants of tho Caribs, are
still to bo found on the island living in
huts of straw.
Their sole business in these days seems
to be the peddling of lottery tickets. Ev
erybody invests in the lottery there, and
as there are drawings each day the ped
dling of tickets forms quite a paying
Somo of the Africans there are mag
nificently formed, especially those em
ployed along the lagoon in loading and

at home in the water and will dive un

Of late years they aro forced to wear
suits while sporting in tho lagoon near
the settlements, but as the lagoon ex
tends in the center of the island several
miles each way they may bo seen every
evening making their way in punts to a

The Maca prnen, or monkey plum, is
the favorite fruit, and the parrot is the

for 50 cents.
None of the liquor which obtains its
name from the island is made there now.
The Dutch have taken hold of the manu
facture of the liquor and have trans
ferred the business to Holland.—New-
Booth as Billposter.
Ono story of Booth's trip to the Sand
wich Islands remains with me. He had
gone there in 1854 in company with his
comrade, Mr. David C. Anderson, en
route to Australia, and they wero to play
in the Royal Hawaiian theater. They
had hired a native to paste up the bills
announcing tho performance. This had
to bo done with a preparation named
"poe-poe," made from a vegetable called
"tara-tara," which is a favorite food in
Honolulu, but the poor man was so hun
gry that yielding to temptation he incon
tinently ate up the paste, and to their
surprise no bills appeared. When the
reason was ascertained, they feared to
trust another native, and it was there
fore agreed that as Booth was the young
er lie should act as billposter, and it came
to pass that every night after the. per
formance Edwin wart about the city
with his play bills and bucket of paste
and put up with his own hands the post
ers announcing what the company would
play on the following night. And he as
sured me that he did this honestly and
did'not eat any of tho paste!— William
Bispham in Century.
I asked a very famous physician the
other day if it was injurious to chew
gum —not that I do it —and he answered:
"Yes and no."
"And how?" I inquired.
"To chew gum for five or ten minutes
after a meal is absolutely beneficial,"
said he, "especially for hasty eaters, who
do not half masticate their food, because
the action of the jaws causes the gastric
juices to flow, and that is good. But so
few people can use and not abuse it. They
get the gum in their mouths and keep at
it till they fairly dry up the saliva sup
ply, bring on a headache and get gener
ally nervous. This will cause indiges
tion." —New York Recorder.
Never In Time.
The late H. J. Byron had a horror of
funerals, but was once prevailed upon to
attend that of a fellow Bohemian. After
waiting long at the cemetery entrance,
he and his companions followed a fune
ral into the chapel, and when tho serv
ice was half over, discovered that it was
that of a stranger. Their friend's funo
ral had not come yet.
"Ah," said Byron, "just like poor Bill
—never in time!" —London Million.
