you so fully deserve, and remain,
Yours very truly,
The New York ll ndd devotes much
space to the resuscitation of Sothern's
practical jokes, most of which tiro
tolerably well known to all who ever
took any interest in tho comedian, for
ho never ullowed an opportunity to air
them pass. There is one, however, told
by John T. Kayinoud, not so well known
as the general run. Sol hern and Iiay
morid were the. principals, aud it o
currcd w hile the former was playing
Diuxlrnifji in Paris. It may bo con
sidered funny by many people. Mr,
I'ayinond says: "The celebrated bill
poster of Paris and Loudon, Willing by
name, was in the green-room and made
some remark as coining from Sothern
concerning nic, which 1 puroosclv con
strued into a most grievous insult.
Dashing impetuously into Sothern's
dressing-room, which was just oil' the
green-room, 1 demanded in aloud tone
that could be heard by everybody, in
stant satisfaction or his life, whispering
to Ned to keep tip the joke. Always as
ijuick as lightning to take a hint, he
presently emerged, kicking nie out. of
of hi.s apartment into the cvntre of the
now thoroughly alarmed people in the
green-room. I rushed on" to got a knife,
swearing vengeance, r.vcrytjoiry ap
pealed to me to be (juiet, and try to hold
me back, while 1 contended that nothing
but hi.s life's blood would wipe out the
insult. i)f course the play had to con
tinue, but 'the actors were almost afraid
to tro on the stage, lookiug on me as an
American who, with bowie-knile in
hand, was about, Id commit a horrible
murder. Meanwhile Sothern had quiet
ly sent a note telling ni" to slip into the
dressing-room aaiii, gel somo stage
blood there, lock the door, and that as
soon as he came oil" we would have a
'time.1 I billowed the instructions, ami
after the act he came down .and joined
me. The people in the green-room
were in the alert, and, between Ned and
myself, we uave their listening ears the
benelitof a full chorus of moans, groans,
imprecations, .struggles and other
sounds of distiv-N among which, every
now and then, my knife could be heard
sticking into some conveniently sofi -oii-slance
that sounded ery lii.e a human
body. Willing, whose remarks had
been the cause of all this commotion,
frightened almost to death, ru-hed aflol
the gendarmes. When the hitter came
tiicy demanded entrance in IVcneh. A
low groan w;us the only iv-ponst;. -lieving
tnat one or bolli of us was near
ly dea l, they Durst open the door. Wil
ling was the first man to rush in, and
was followed by the soldiers and such
of the company as were not on the stage.
You can imagine their feelings when
thev saw Sothern and mvself covered
with blood lvijig on the floor, with the
gory knife near by, the entire apart
ment in confusion and bearing evidence
of a desperate struggle.
" 'Poor fellow,' said one," 'has he
got a jiul.se?' 'He must be dyio.',' was
tne remafK oi anotner. 'im lor some
stretchers.' "What awful fighters these
Americans are!' 'Don't touch tho blade!'
and other similar exjiressions were also
to be heard.
"Willing, with a horror stricken face,
stooped over aud felt of Sothern. Ned
partially raised his head and feebly
whispered, 'A glass of chamjiagne.
quick." Tho jioor bill-jioster didn't
stop for a glass, but knocked oil' the
neck of a bottle, and in his haste, to tho
great disgust of Dumh'uiry, nearly
choked him to death as ho poured it
down. At this instant I lifted my head
in thu same way and faintly called,
'Some w ine, too.' Then we Loth rose
tiji on our elbows and asked for more
w ine, and then to our feet, until liually
with a hearty laugh at the success of
our joke, we invitedthe whole party to
join us in a jiotalion."
A Mouso Cure.
Hitherto there has been no remedy
which could be regarded as a soeilie
for tetanus. At last, however, an in
genious French jihysieian has ajqiarent
)y hit upon si remedy before which
tetanus yields as readily as toothache
yields to the dentist's forceps, and
which will, of course, sujiersede cttraro
and all other inferior remedies. Tho
French doctor in question was called
in to .attend a lady sultering from
tetanus, in his report he says that she
was a married woman of thirtv-ono
ears of age, and previous to his visit
r lamily physician bad tried everv
known remedy for tetanus, including
curare, without producing any etl'ect.
The patient was lying on her back,
