(Hy Mrs. Olive Oumby.)
There are four small loys In tho lcln
Itv of I orly-second street, New Vork city,
who are the hatipltst youiiBsters In the
metropolis and the eny of all their nu
merous ncqu.ilntnhcs They are earnlntr
n teBuIar salary likely to continue for
tnanj weeks, and nllhouch It sounds para
doxical to say so. the work for which they
nre paid Is, In reality, play, and their hard,
est task l htiMiiB tun. The more fun
they dune the better their employer Is sat

scream, bawl or exert Iheiiiselves In uny
wav likely to make the tndst nolto To
bawl In this abandoned fnshlon Is one of
the duties of these small wnBe-eirners,
nnd another Is to Jump, all Tour of them,
on the bnck of a man, nnd while pv reim
ItlB nt tho top of their Iuiibs to bear their
Mctlm to tho Ktouiid, and try to keep hltn
there while ho slrilBBles to be free, oh!
sucn ueiicnitui uirKs, and they don't know
Just which nnit of It they like best.
Tilt YOLWO ACTOIta.
Their names aru Hay Alison, Joe Mc
Murran, John Lundy and Ilernnnl Oold
steln, their uses latme from 9 to 11 or 12,
and they are omploicd by the manncer of
"The Oieal Diamond llobbery" company to
take part In the ttrect scenes which occur
In one act.
Another part of these boys' duties, which
they do not seem to llnd Itksome, Is to
Bet their hands, fnce and elothltiB ns dirty
as possible and as torn as poslble, and
keep them In that condition.
Kcry nlfiht tit o'clock they nre ex
pected to oppenr In tho blB lumber spaces
behind the scenes, where the slab-llko par
titions stretch upward out of sight, nnd be
on hand to holler and hoot to as to be
heard by the people In front. The Italian
woman they aie hooting at Is seen, as she
tuins nnd scolds them In no moderate
terms. Their voices carry far, and the
audience is made aware of the situation.
Twice do they shout nnd bawl like all
possessed at the side entinnce to the stage,
among the Hies, as they are called, and
then they retire beneath a friendly frame
that Is not In prc-ent use, and play mai
bles until the tlmo lor their real appeai
ance In the fifth act.
Kxcltemeut prevails among them as the
time draws near for this act, and they
rush olf to tlnd the --ticks which are a pirt
of their stage regalia.
When the cut tain Is almost ready to go
up for the momentous fifth aet, a tall man
with an air of authority gives the word,
and Ray, Joe, John und Iiernard run Into
the nairow dellle between the illop cur
tain and the scene, representing Prau Ro
tenbaum's hou-e. In tho play. It is a
very narrow, little dellle, indeed, scarce
ly two feet wide, and in it Peggy Dal),
Krau Rosmbauin's hand maiden torn
memos to d ince to the sound ot a slieet
harmonica, and the bo)s commence to . lap
and get ready to applaud her nimble steps.
Peggy, arra)ed In short skirts ami red
sniped stockings, U exceedingly "t nigh '
in uppearance, and the boys exceedingly
enthu-lastlc In their admiration. When
the cut tain goes up, Peggy has warmed
into a wild fandango, and their clappings
and hoorahlng is sommhlng Insp.rlting.
I'he more the ls)s clap the taster the mus
ic pa.v.s and tin. faster Peggy dances, until
iliiali) the clanging of lire bells attract at
ttntlun und ihe boys rush off to w-.it. h the
engines. All this taks place in Canal
stiee-t, or Is supposed to, and the bo)s, In
stead of iuhliig olf to tho lire in reality,
run behind the protecting Hies where p.g

In a few moments there Is another scene
on when the bo)s must appear, uml In
this seeiio there Is another t nllvening el

the liojs, barking furiously, and tiles to
enforce his anger ut the boys' treMtnlent

After bearing tho dogs mister to the
