"Ono ot the most Annoying things wo
have to enduro," said the lady, Is Ilia
vigorous attempt which somo of the members
ot a company will make to dlscbn
cert another. The first time I pluycd an
emotional part I Buffered greatly. I was
on the stage with six or eight otherri, and
let me say that besides being comparatively
new to the business, I was exceptionally
and Intensely nervous. I had
to lnalco ono very effective speoch, spoken
to these six or eight people collectively. I
remqmber that Just as, I was about to
begin they wore talking Among themselves
in tones that were perfectly audible
to me, though of course the audience could
not hear thorn. I frowned for them to
stop, and I folt so embarrassed that I almost
forgot my lines. They, however,
took no notlc,o of my frown and, wont on
talking while I commenced my pathctlo
.speech, Soon I henrd one actor say, 'Isn't
she cutcV to which another replied, 'Yes,
but listen to the chestnuts she's tolling
those poor folks.' Then the girls tittered
and the men made other ridiculous
"1 lost my presence of mind. I giggled
convulsively, and thon Oh, I shall never
forgetlt I broke down and laughed outright.,
Thb 'heavy llln!n' had just been
telling 0110 of the girls a silly story at
which no one could help laughing. Of
course he told it loud enough for me to
hear with the intention of making, me
break down, and ho succeeded, I was
boiling over with anger when I loft the
green-room. The manager upbraided me
In no very choice terms, and it wus quite
useless for mo to attempt uny explanation.
I did not attempt one, however, and
he Informed mo that Jf I couldn't conquer
my emotions while I wis on the stngo I
had mistaken my vocation."
"Why didn't you tell the actor what you
thought asked the saguclous
"IjWouldn't have glvou him that
the answer. "I knew that
he dldjt Intentionally, and he had enough
pleasure In Ids successwlthout my adding
to his glceby showing him that I felt the
stingof his unkiudnesH so,'deep"ly. He
tried It again night, but I
was equal to the occasion. When yon
know what jou have to expect you can be
prepared to meet it. So I was quite immovable,
and ho saw that he could not
succeed again In breaking me up. Oh,
we're a sweet lot of people." New York
Puck Shooting on the Chesapeake.
"Tollng blinds," as their name indicates,
ore used for a specific purpose that of
"toling" ducks. The blinds are simple
wattled fences, a foot or two high and six
or eight feet long, "bushed".with grass or
evergreeus, and placed in the shape of a
semicircle close to the shore of a cove
where the ducks are in the habit of
bedding. Behind thid the gunner hides,
while b. dog trained for the purpose plays
tip and down before It, with corncobs or
sticks thrown to him by his master. This
attracts the eye ot the fowl, the Inordinate
curiosity of which impels them to draw
closer and closer, until with heads up and
fixed gaze they are almost out of the
water; hen the gunner delivers his Are,
strewing the water with dead and crippled
ducks, It is something on the order of
killing a whole covey of quails in their
"Booby blinds" are floating platforms
with grass thatched side"), anchored a
hundred yards from shore. They very
closely resemble a bunch of grass growing
out of the water, and are very successful
lfi some places.
For years the flats of the Susquehanna
river have been celebrated for the fine
spoit to be obtained there. In "ye olden
times" the ducker on the flats used the
dugout, so called from Its being literally
dug out of the tree from which it was
made. Lying in this primitive appliance,
covered, with "trash," etc. , and armed with
b, flint-locked muzzle-loading gun, imagine
tle picture, you, the modern ducker,
which he presented. "Picus" in American
Contrant lletsVeen Gens. Taylor and Scott.
In writing of his Mexican war experiences
Gen, Grant gives an interesting
contrast between Gens. Taylor and Scott,
us follows: "I had now been in battle with
the two leading commanders conducting
urmies in a foreign land. The contrast
between the two wos very marked. Gen.
Taylor never wore a uniform, but dressed
himself entirely for comfort. He moved
about the field in which he wus oporutlng
to see through his own eyes the situation.
Often he would bo without staff officers,
and when he was accompanied by them
there was no prescribed order in which
they followed. Ho was very much given
to sitting on Ills horse sideways, with
both feet on one side, particularly on the
"Gen. Scott "was the revorse in all these
particulars. He always wore ull the uniforms
prescribed or allowed by law.
When he. inspected his lines word would
be sent to all 'divisions and brigade commanders
In advance notifying them of
the hour when the commanding general
might be expected. This was done so
that all the army might bo under arms to
salute their chief as he passed. On these
occasions he wore his dress uniform,
cocked hat, uiguillotes, saber and spurs.
His staff proper, besides all officers constructively
on his staff engineers, inspectors,
quartermasters, etc. follow ed
also in uniform and in prescribed order.
Orders were prepared with great care,
and evidently with the view that they
should be a history of what followed."
"Morphine 1'artleH" In -French Circle.
Through a French journiil 1 hear of
morphine pai ties of the small and early
kind In the higher couches sociules. Those
Invited to such little gatherings are
known to the hostess as being in the habit
of resisting ills to which flesh Is heir by
subcutaneous injections of tho narcotic
above named. Guests and the hid ot the
house sit in a circlo, and listen to a concert
In a distant room. They describe
their sensation to euch other. Novices derive
peculiar beauty from the
process, Bince it lends a dxeamy luster
to the eye and deepens the dark shadows
below the lid, which are considered so

Street Can tn Chlll'a Capital.
The city Is threaded everywhere by
street cars with women for conductors,
but they do not dross uniformly as In
Valparaiso. Policemen are everywhere
and any refusal to pay fare or rudeness to
these women Is followed by a speedy
and fine. The streets are paved with
granite square blocks and small cobble
or "kidney stones" the latter making a
very noisy and disagreeable way for cither
footmen or horses, Cor, Kansas City
