PRESS AGENTS ROUND TABLE
I wonder says Manager Chase of the
Grand It the string ns it Is
fclangily applied did not originate in the
mind of tonic victim of the telcgrnph
wire
They who feel tempted to supply Infor
mation on the subject may relish tho
foundation of a preliminary explanation
foncernliK the manner In which the vau
deUlle Impresario arrived at this conclu
sion To begin with then let It be rc
manted that the coming bill at the Grand
Includes a comedian whose name appro
priately enough Is George W Day The
arrangement Into which the local director
entered with Mr ISay provided that the
entertainer should rccclxe a stipulated
Sum next Saturday evening In considera
tion of which lie was to contribute his
services several frames of photographs
and a lariety of printing The printing in
question was dliided into two classes
stands and three
For the benefit of the uninitiat
ed Is appended another mental wedge
The paper with which billboards are cov
ered is measured according to the number
of pieces which each adtertlsement con
tains A three sheet Is slightly less
than a janl wide and slightly more than
two yards high
On Wednesday last when the minions
of Manager Chase began their pasting the
promised street stationery had not arrived
and all concerned were in high dudgeon
Work could not be commenced until the
stuff came The vaudeillle
oforesald rote two letters regarding the
matter and then decided to telegraph A
message conveying the Information that
at least one stle of printing was wanted
lnstanter was put on the wires and ilan
aer Chase waited He was much cheered
when an hour later a boy handed him
what evidently was a reply He opened
the envelope and found tho enclosed slip
On It was written What In creation Co
3 011 mean Whereupon and quite natu
rally the amusement caterer was angry
lie was about to send an Indignant answer
-when It occurred to htm that be might do
well by first reading his own lines Con
sequently lie went to the nearest office
nnd ordered a repeat When the copy
was handed him his astonishment knew
no bounds The communication sent to a
prominent firm of lithographers was as
follows
e Company Cincinnati Oliio
Km in desperate need o Days tliree shirts
trod immediate P IT CIHSH
Things were satisfactorily patched up and
-the xnlstnke ended in a hearty laugh Still
Manager Chase bdletes that the word
string should be wire
Ttather a humorous Incident occurred not
long ago while Joseph Herbert now of the
Alice Nielsen organization was touring
the South with a son Important company
The narrow comedian had arrived late at
a small town in Georgia and being very
tired selected the first hotel in sight as
Lis stopping place for the night The build
ing looked clean and neat though not pre
tentious and the clerk who greeted him
from behind a plain deal table inside did
not appear to be gifted with any great
amount of intellect Indeed so Ignorant
did the boy seem that Mr Herbert almost
forgot his weariness as he sauntered up
to The desk and queried If that was
where he was supposed to autograph
Autograph I asked the young fellow
blankly
Yes replied the good natured enter
tainer autograph sign my name you
lnow Civen this explanation the clerk
Ijrought out bis blanks and the formalities
were accomplished Then Mr Herbert
seated himself in a comfortably Invltlng
chair nearby lighted a cigar and was Just
about to doze when he was Interrupted by
the entrance of three typical mountaineers
These fellows approached the table as
their predecessor had done and asked for
a room They were handed a key and
then Jhe youngster who had waited on Mr
Herbert put his fingers Into his pocket
leaned gracefully over his desk winked
languidly at his first customer and with
the air of a parrot reciting a new speech
remarked Will you gents autograph
There was a moments tllence while the
members of the trio looked at each other
and then smiles of amost superhuman in
telligence flitted across the faces of all
three Sure replied the tallest Mines
rye and the other fellers want corn whisky
Whats jours stranger
Mr Herbert says that the clerks good
humor faded as might cheap silk but that
he treated like a man and that his per
gonal share of the joke was not half bad
And adds the librettist comedian
thats what comes of speaking a foreign
language In ones own country
It was while Maclsn Arbuckle was here
last with Why Smith Left Home that
actor and reporter stood together In the
lobby of the Arlington Mr Arbucklo
w atched the goers and comers describe a
nerol clrcle Inside the patent storm door
and was reminded of a story
Did you ever think he said that
when a metronollte stumbles acrosi some
thing new for the first time be Is a deal
more nonplussed than might be the aver
age countryman The fact Is that the fel
low from town Is keenly conscious of his
own sharpness and therefore such an
accident it a complete surprise to blm I
never shall forget the day on which I ran
into one of those turnstile affairs for my
primal experience I was calling on a
friend at the Imperial and when I
reached the entrance was conf rented by
an arangemnt similar to that before us
The thing looked simple and I stepped
inside It I had cst put my band on the
uar to give tnc partition in front a push
when another jap going in an opposite
direction preceded my move and I hacked
around and around until a new arrival
Hopped me Then I recotcrcd lest ground
and added three Ijph to my score
When finally that diabolical machine
tame to a halt the street was ahead and
1 lost not a becond In reaching IL I sur
veyed the door carefully finished a men
tal plan of campaign and returned Tills
time oo one interfered with my sboting
Hut all the outelde panels were of xlaes
and to fcave me I couldnt tell when I
reached the exit 1 had begun going a
few feet and then feeling for a free way
when a third stranger took me on a reg
ular flying horses trip and I missed mr
place The count had to be recommenced
With every endeavor I could not find the
opening of my prison I figured that s6me
chap would get directly opposite me In
leaving the building and that so I should
be landed in just the proper spot
Imagine my relief therefore when I
saw my friend pass down the lobby and
select the compartment across from me
Instantly I began turning and at last
lauded Mm on the sidewalk Then for
the first time It occurred to mo that In
helping him out I had taken away my one
reat on for wishing to be In Tim ac
quaintance probobly had grown weary of
waiting lor me and had gone Thus I had
lost him The game was up I turned
to Icrvc 1 paused until a man stepped
in the opposite quarter of the thing and
then Jumped for my quarter He had be
gun pushing and a section of partition
struck roc fairly In the face My Iiat was
ruined and I myself was decidedly dared
when I got Into the street again In the
course of moons I learned the system of
those sturm doors but even now In re
membrance of that terrible adventure- 1

NEW YOIIK Jan 27 On Monday last
just as vp all were preparing to be com
ftrtably locked by Olga Nethcrsoles pre
sentation f Sappho at Wallacks the
newspapers announced that the lady her
self was seriously ill In jour town and that
we shouIJ hae to exercise patience for
another week Accordingly local theatre
goers arc waiting for Miss Nethcrsole
while the dramatic critics have been
obliged to batisfy themselves with the light
est and slightest entertainment Novel
ties ctcn among these seem to be exceed
ingly scarce
A really delightful comedy was shown m
this same Monday at the Lyceum from
which cozy house Annie Itussell has de
parted with Miss Hobbs The most re
cent piece Is entitled The Surprises of
Love and It lells a quaint simple story
cry well Indeed
The story aforesaid concerns Marcello
Duval a young widow who is betrothed to
Dujiont Martin a distinguished author
M Martin has given his fiancee a present
in the form or a lottery ticket anC when
she draws the prize first discove s that
the reward In question is a handsome
youth Henri Leduc who has been led by
poverty thus to lend himself to the gam
ing company Madame Duval immediately
falls Into an affectionate understanding
with her property and an accident forcing
ber prospective husband to break the en
gagement with her marries the new ob
ject of her regard The tale Is decidedly
odd both in its nature and in the fact
that though a Trench importation it is
delightfully clean The lines are witty
too and tin situations enjoyable so that
if Gotham can forghc the absence of sug
gestion the offering Is In for a long run
It is interpreted by 11 Kecves Sralth who
first came here with A Brace of Part
ildges Elsie de Wolfe one while of Miss
llussells support OlUe May the wife of
Henry Guy Carleton Iric Hope our Eng
lish cousin and several other more-or-less
prominent perrons All are clccr
Broadway to Toklo the attraction at
the New York has been so often postpon
ed and so often described that mere Is
scant need for speaking of it at great
length now that It has been staged The
production by the way did not occur a
week ago as I stated it would in my last
letter another delay being announced in
the journals that were out an hour after
I had written the prophecy mentioned It
would be difficult to tell the reason for all
these hitches The investiture while
rather elaborate is not surpassing and
the organization has little to do that is
worth the doing Either because of the
lapse of time since the book was penned
or because of the excellent memory of its
authors Broadway to Toklo has what
seems to be the oldest collection of jokes
I have eter heard The story told is orig
inal but dreadfully dull Despite the ex
ceptional cast engaged a cast which ln
cludecs Otis Harlan Joseph Sparks Igna
clo Martlnetti Joseph Ott Kay Temple
ton Joslc Sadler and Alice Judson the
presentation probably will not last more
than a month unless It Is altered greatly
within the next Tew evenings
ATter an absence of over two years on
the olher side of the pond the popular
favorites of The Belle of New York
company were greeted enthusiastically
Monday at the Casino This was espe
cially true in the case of Edna May whose
pretty head has been much enlarged by
her foreign success but who still Is a local
Idol Except for the fact thut Dan Daly
was missed sadly the interpretation went
smoothly and eneores were more than fre
quent Throughout the current week the
casino has been crowded nightly and tin
less llugh Morton and Guetave Kerkcr
succeed In enjoining Manager Lederer as
I hey threaten to do there Is scant proba
bility that the new piece will have an op
portunity In Follow On for a goodly pe
riod yet
At the American this same evening the
Castle Square Opera Company rang two
works wholly unknou j In Gotham The
first of these was Offenbachs The Magic
Melody a simple and graceful composi
tion set In a story simpler still though
delightfully droll The cccond was Eu
gene CheccI and Nlccolo SDincllls A
Basso Torto translated Into English un
Oer the title of At the Lower Harbor
Already famous In Europe the piece never
had been heard in the United Statc3 until
Manager Savages pecple took It In hand
Splnelll Is an Italian of the school of
Mascajnl and Leoncavallo rather than of
the older masters At the Ijjwer Har
bor contequently Is viWd and a trifle

week Include the postponed premiere of

Fourteenth Street On the following Mon

It Is astonishing how much The Times
is quoted here by press agents Usually
these Individuals affect complete Indiffer
