Two ?ood sizefl audiences yesterday
(witnessed "Freckles" Xeil Twomey's
dramatization of the novel of Gene
It is a play of much human interest,
and the story is well told and creditably
presented under the management
of A. G. DelameUr.
The company is not a large one, but
each actor does his part in an accepti
able manner. [
"Freckles" was done d> rercy m/i- (
| den, and a ne little fellow he is, with
| a. neat, clean play at his back, that ap-|
peals especially to people who love the
W "woods and the waifs 'that develop
W therein. Golden not only captured ev
eryone's heart by his boyish charm,
but he sang the songs interlarded by
Anatol Friedland, the Viennese composer,
with fine effect. Miriam Gasparo
took the role of Angel. Her inter
pretation of ehe part was sweet ana
winning and nobody could blame
Freckles for falling head over heals
in love with her.
^ Bryce Desmond, who plaved McCkan
the friend of the little guard although
1 lacking the opportunity afforded others,
was eminently satisfactory in the
part, while Duncan, played by DeLancy
Barclay, and Mrs Duncan, impersonated
by Helen G. Hudson, both
kept the audience in good humor by
their quakit hits of wisdom, always-,
given with a Scotch twist. Black Jack
was the geniune bad man that the
audience orginally made him, as the
character was played by Bernard >
* Johnson, . and James S. Kitts made
r quite a hit as Wessner, the blackguard
cook and thief. x |

QUEER THINGS FROM THE SKY
Great Variety of Matter Carried and
Dropped by the Clouds.
How often we watch the passing,
clouds and wondef at their beauty.!
We compare them with great masses j
of snow or ice, or imagine them to be
great mountains floating across the
wide expanse of deep blue shy. We try
- to guess how high they are, where
I they came from and how far they will
travel, and wonder what it would be,
like if we could sit on the top of one '
; of those beautiful white peaks and j
look about us a? we sailed away to distant
parts of the world.
Clouds are simply masses of vaporj
of more or less density, and their differ- j
ent colors are produced by the light j
of the sun shining on and through j
them. The dark usually seen on the j
under side of the white or pink-edged
clouds is the shadow of the body of
Tnr\r\r> r\v the ahsPTIPfl r?f On the
> apui, v* v*>v ?v- w- --a
under side of the cloud.
Clouds are supposed to carry nothing
but moisture, but this is not always
the case. A great variety of matter
has been carried in the clouds and
dropped to the earth, causing alarm
and wonder among the people in vai
Toads are said to have fallen from j
dense clovds in various sections of this
and other countries, and, in a number
of instances, small fish are declared

great numbers after heavy rains.
Scientists teli us these creatures, for
whose size we are at th? mercy of the
news report?, were gathered up by
water pouts or )ther curi uis phenomena
in the form of storms and carried
great distances before gravity brought
them tc earth in a shower.
In some parts of the world earth
worms, and especially tho-se commonly
called fishing worm-, are scattered
over the earth from clouds.
The writer once witnessed a heavy
'shower in which these woi ms came
down in great numbers, and to satisfy
his own and the curiosity cf neighbor*,
a ladder was secured and different
persons went to the roofs of several
buildings, and the worms were scatter
ed <( er thr root's the ?ame as on the
streets and lawns. How they were
gathered up and carried is not understood.
Some travelers in the far north say.
there is red snow at some points in
that cold and dreary region. Others
say it is a red moss that sometimes
grows on the surface of the snow, and
in a few instances red insects are said
to have fallen with the snow, giving
it a tinted appearance.
A number of years ago there was a
neavy snower 01 rea insects near rataskala,
Ohio, and they lay so thickly
over the snow that the earth had a red
appearance. These insects were quite
lar^e, but no one seemed to be able
to determine where they came from.
It is quite common for ashe- and
volcanic dust to fall, in various parts
of the globe, but these do not always
come from the clouds, often falling
from a clear sky.
Dust and ashes have been so dense
as to form what seemed a cloud, obscuring
the light of the sun. They
are thrown up from volcanoes and
some times carried for hundreds of
miles before being deposited on the
surface. Sand has been gathered up
from deserts and plains by severe
windstorms and carried tor long distances.
In Guernsey county, Ohio, more thar
half a century ago, there is said to
have been a heavy shower of stones
that caused many to believe the world
was coming to an end. In Colorado
showers of stones have fallen on sevnn/iofif!ntio

and mud have been scattered about on
a number of occasions, some stones
being as white as marbel.
Meteoric stones are often found, but
these are not like the showers that
fall in Ohio and Colorado. Meteors
are said to be from space outside cf
our earth's atmosphere, and are not at
These sometimes reach considerable
size, and fall with such force as to
bury themselves deeply In tne earth
They are intensely hot when they
reach the earth, due to the friction
caused by their long and rapid journey
through the a;r.
Farmsrs declare snows carry fertil
izerj from the atmosphere to the earth
and especially the snows that fall during
March and April.
Doubtless certain elements that are
essential to the soil in its struggle to
produce vegetation, are swept to the
earth by the snow passing through the
air or collected Xrom the upper strata
of the earth's atmosphere.?Philadelphia
Food to Avoid.
Digestibility is often confused with
anothe: very different thing, nanjely,
the agreeing or disagreeing of fcod
with the person who eats it. During
the process of digestion and assimilation
the food, as we have seen, undergoes
many chemical changes, some of
them in the intestines, some in the
liver, muscles and other organs.
Different persons are differently constituted
with respect to the chemical
changes which their food undergoes
a. d the effect produced, so that it may
be literally true that "one man's meat
is another man's poison."
Milk is for most people a very wholesome,
digestible and nutritous food,
but there are persons who are made ill
by drinking it, and they should avoid
milk. The writer knows a boy who is
made seriously ill by eating eggs. A
small piece of sweet cake in which
eggs have been u>ea will caus-e him
siious trouble. The sickness is nature's
evidence that eggs are for him
an unfit article of fr,od.
Some persons have to avoid strawberries.
Indeed cases in which the
most wholesome kinds of ?ood are
hurtful to individual persons,are, unfortunately
Every man nust learn from his own
experience wnat food agrees with him
and whac does not. .
How much harm is done by the injurious
compounds sometimes formed
from ordinary wholesome foods is seldom
Physiological chemistry is revealing
the fact that these compounds may
affpot. pypn the brains and nerves, and
that f,ome forms of insanity are caused
by products formed by the abnormal
transformation of food and body
