Of conrsx when in:nfurer is reckless
enough to think of amending the evun
gelist.s in this wholesale way to suit the
dimensions of his .stage (granted that
be knew, which was doubtful, the ac
tual numher of the disciples) he would
not be likely to respect any author's
manuscript or his ideas. And, indeed,
few managers ever think of doing any
such thing. Their standing order in re-
f;ard to plays is "Cut! cut! cut!'' ami ii
'hiladelphia manager, who enjoyed the
fame of reducing "Speed the l'iow" to
a single, act, used to carry this practice
so far that a member of his company
once said of him: "C. would 'cut' the
laird's Prayer down to a single sen
tence!" Tin' manager spoken of above
in rather notorious for his slips of the
tongue, lie is very much afraid of the
water, and, coining to New York from
Boston one stormy night on a Sound
steamer, he. is reported to have exclaim
ed, as he leaped ashore as .soon as the
boat reached her pier, "Thank Heaven!
I an) on vice versa once more!'1
The late Arlemus Ward (Charles F.
Browne) knew what he was about
when he courted the company of actors
and journalists ho assiduously. He look
from them much more than he gave,
pood companion as he was, and it was
the actors who taught him to give ex
pression to his irresistible llow of spirits
in a succession of practical jokes of a
harmless sort, yet comical beyond
measure by their Very oddity and unex-
lectedness. "Come in here! come in
lere! said he one day in ISostoii to the
, companion walking with him. "Coino
in here; we v ill have some fun." It
was a I'.oKlon pie-bakery which they en
tereda place where pics were a spe
cialty -where pics and nothing but pies
were sold, wholesale and retail, all the
live-long day. l'.rowue approached the
counter, behind which the proprietor
of the establishment was standing, and
asked, in his bland, insinuating voice,
"Have you any pics?" 'Tics!" replied
the astounded proprietor. "Yes, pies."
'Ties!'." repeated the man, still more
dumbfounded. "Of course-pie,-.! Have
you any-pic.,?" "Pies!!" gazed the
shopman once more, gaing at lirowne
us if ho thought him an escaped lunatic.
"Oh, well, if you haven't goi'iiuv pji..,,
I'll impure somewhere else; " come
Jack!" and he marched his friend out
of the shop again before the salesman
could recover his wits.
Artellilis delighted to fillip the sedate
respectability of Huston, while loving
the place sincerely. One day, in the
early afternoon, having a lecture t de
liver that evening, some of his friends
concluded that he would not be able to
talk so well at night if he kept on talk
ing in front of the bar at the Parker
House. They accordingly insisted on
an immediate adjournment, and Arte
1UU8, suspecting the game, determined
to reVenge himelf. He locked anus
with two gentlemen very well known,

ed and fashionable thoroughfare. Act
ing as if ho was in the custody and
needed the care of his companions, and
making his voice conspicuously loud,
Arteinns began; "(ientlcincn, you are
probably aware that the noble red man,
the Incomparable savage of our plains,
forests and mountain fastnesses, whom
I have studied closely fit his nativo
wilds, has various modes of expressing
the emotions which swell his generous
bosom and of giving voice to the cere
monial traditions inherited from an int
lucinoi ial ancestry. His cries and his
il a n eos are epially peeuliar.nnd hehnsa
particular sort of whoop for each par
ticular occasion. The scalp dance, the
war dance, the bear dance, the ile.ncn
of skulls, .each has its appropriate hal
loo, and so has the feaM of the moon,
the harvest feast and so forth. Hut no
verbal description, gentlemen, can give
vou an idea of these vigorous cries.
They must be heard to be appreciated
and to him who has never heard them
they are startling as the revelations of
a life-time. In illustration of what I
have said, gentleman, I will now pro
ceed to give you an imitation of the yell
of the noble savage as, tomahawk in
hand, he springs exultant from his am
bush upon the astounded foe."
Thereupon lirowne executed a start
ling ami tremendous war-whoop, which
made people turn for blocks around and
drew upon him the attention of thou
sands. "I will now give you," said Artemus,
after regaining his breath, "a faint imi
tation of the warrior's cry as he returns
to his wigwani, the sca'p of his slain

It was in 1M that "The 1 dike's. Mot
to" was first played in New York. It
had been imported the Knglish trans
lation by an Irish actor. McDonnell,
who intended playing "Lagardere."
Win. Wheatley, however, who brought
it out, took the part of "I.agardere"
himself, casting McDonnell as "Carrick
fergus." While the piece was being
played the draft riots broke out, and
business fell oil", to almost nothing.
Whcalley wanted to close the house,
but his contract forbade it, so he fell
sick conveniently, and McDonnell's am
bition was satislied, he played "Lagar
dere" and Doyle, another of the com
pany, acting "Carrickfergus." They
played, however, to less than would
pay for gas-bills, and at. laX Wheatley
locked (he house up in absolute disgust.
Old man Saulsbury, a ipiaint musician
and ltrilon. was in the orchestra at the
time. Some one said to him; "Why,
Saulsbury, I see your house is closed
what's the matter? "Well, on see," he
replied slowly, "McDonnell, he under
took to play 'Lagardere,' and Doyle he
undertook to play 'Carrickfergus,' and
the two undertakers have buried the
Indeed, almost all actors, who are
really wedded to their profession, un
consciously learn to think their life up
on the boards the real one and all else
only counterfeit, and tinsel. This makes
them miscalculate the actual propor
tion of things, but helps them to be
come delightful companions. Joseph
Jefferson, charming gentleman and the
most natural and unaffected of all ac
tors, is yet nearly as much an actor off
the stage as on in both places, howev
er, perfectly aware of the force of the
maxim ' "art est eclare art"in." Some
actors, indeed, carry their art with
them to the very brink of the dark river.
Kph Horn, the famous jester and min
strel, when he was djing was under the
generous care of big-hearted Tony Pas
tor. He suffered much, and Tony was
afraid his nervous system would break
down. "Now, old man," said he, "I
know you'll do tlie best you can. All
of us have to face this sort of music one
day or another. There's no help for it.
You always were a plucky 'chap, and I
know you ain't going to funk now; are
you, Kph?" "Well, Tony, no; I reckon
not. There isn't any use in kicking
against the pricks; besides," whispered
the old minstrel, with a feeble attempt
at a smile, " Yuu know I always was a
good 'i nil man' " And with" that he
turned over and died. Bnllimurc Dmj.
He Chalked it Down.
A case was tried in 'Sipiire Stephens
court some days ago in which a rather
remarkable witness was introduced.
Tho suit was brought by no old Ger
man, who keeps a grocer and bar
room, against a rather tough citizen,
who owed him a bar-bill. When the
old man was placed on the stand lie
stated his easo in broken English, but
in a very straightforward, truthful
manner, and said that the defendant
had heen a customer at his bar and re
ceived credit, but refused to pay his bill
when the limo arrived. Ho was then
asked by the court if he had kept a reg
ular account of the amount, and was
requested to show his bill. This seemed
to puzzle tho old man some, and after
scratching his head in silent delibera
tion for a few minutes, he said that he
had kept an account, but had left it at
kis store, and asked permission logo off
and bring it.
The permission was granted, and he
started away on a trot, ami in a short
tinio came back, puffing and blowing,
but wearing a satislied Took on his face
and carrying a large pine door on Ids
shoulder. All in the room were con
siderably astonished at this, but he
iiuietly seated himself, and taking the
door across his knees ho pointed to a
number of charcoal marks on it, which
ho stated was his bill. When asked to
explain he said that whenever tho de
fendant got a drink ho marked it down
on tho door. If tho drink was beer ho
made a short mark, and if whisky a
long one. Ho then counted up tho
marks, and they agreed with tho bill
ho had presented. This evidence was ft
clincher, and the old Gorman won his
case umid the smiles of tho epectators.

THE WEEKLY CAIRO BULLKTIN,
Yellow Fever Prevented.
The engineers of the Central Railroad of
Georgia say: "Though exposed to the
worst miusmatic influences, going in mid
coming out of Bavanah at different hours
of the night, and also in spending entire
nights in tho C'ty during tho prcvalanco of
the yellow fever epidemic of 1874, with but
tho single exception ot ono of us (who was
taken sick, but Bpeedily rccovored)we con
tinued in our usual good health a circum
stance we csn account for in no other way
but by the nffect, under Providence, of the
habitual continued uso of Simmons Liver
Regulator while wo wero exposed to this
Tlie Law of Lost Froperty.
What ought the tinder of a lost arti
cle to do? Most people w ill give a ready
answer; He should do his be:,t to dis
cover tho owner and restore the lost
property to him. Hut this standard of
moral duty being imperfectly recogniz
ed by the law, it will he interesting to
review the decisions on this subject.
1. The linder need not tako charge of
the lost property. There is no legal du
ty on him to do it; but if he does take
it into his possession, he becomes a de
pository, and is bound to keen it for tho
owner and restore it to liim when
known, llow long he must keep it, or
what efforts he should make to rind the
owner, have not been laid down.
2. If tho finder does not restore the
property upon discovering tho ow ner,
does he commit theft? This depends
on whether ho knew, or had reasonable
means of knowing, who the owner was
at the time of finding. It has heen held
that the tinder of a pocketbook, having
the owner's name legibly written on it,
is a thief if he conceals and appropriates
the money; but if there is nothing to
indicate tho owner, he does not become
a thief in law if he keeps it.
'X The owner may at any time re
claim his property, and if the tinder re
fuses to give it up, can recover it or tho
value of it from him. Hut as against
any one but the owner, the tinder's ti
tle is recognized as good.
1. When is a thing to he considered
as lost? It has been said in several cases
that money or other property laid down
and forgotten is not lost in the legal
sense of the word. The proprietor of
the shop, or bank, or plac where it is
left is the proper person to take charge
of it, ami those who pick up the proper
ty have no right to keep it. On the oth
er hand it has been held that where a
conductor found money in a railway
car, whose owner coiifd not be ascer
tained, his title to the money would
hold good in law.
.r). Is the finder entitled to be paid for
his trouble and expense? He need not
take charge of it, and it seems that if
he does so, he must look only to the
gratitude and good feeling of the ow ner
for his reward.
G. What if a reward be offered?
There is no doubt that any one, seeing
the offer, sets to work to find the prop
erl i he succeed, be entitled to
th. e.i d, and may even retain the
property until it bo paid. But if he al
ways has the missing article in his pos
session when the reward is offered, or
lias withheld the property in the expec
tation that a reward would bo offered
for its recovery, the rule is tho opposite.
Don't Blow Out the Gas.
According to the Boston lkrnhl the
countryman is a stupendous success
wherever gas is concerned. When he
goes t" 1 - hotel the first thing the clerk
Miys to liiiu is; "Don't blow out the
gas!" i l.e hall boy repeat ; it, and,
when the porter brings up bis trunk, he
also growls; "Don't blow out the pas."
When the count rumin retires ho goes
to the gas fixtures and sees on a black
and white placard, in words two miles
long, "Don't blow out the gas." He
reads this aloud very carefully and then
blows out the gas! A few hours later
and the night watchman smells it, bat
ters dow n the door, and the ruralite is
taken to tin hospital, where he is chron
icled as "asphyxiated" and left to live
or die. Usually ho lives.
