FEUDS OF ACTORS.
Some Instances of Disagreements
During a recent perfoimance of
"Tho PariBlnn Model," Anna Hold, tho
star, and Charleu Blcelow, tho Ir-adlng
romedlan, quarreled after tho second
act. The reault of the disagreement
was that Hlgelow did not appear In tho
third act The Shuberts had engaged
him, and JIlss Held was put out be
cause he had decided to leave her
During the last performances that
Oeorgo XI. Cohan and Ethel Levoy,
IiIr wife, gavo before alio divorced him,
each of them wan especially careful to
preserve an appearance of complete
coidlallty. Many of their friends
knew that, a cHalu in the form of di
vorce proceedings was coming, but
aa they played lovers on tho fitago,
they gavo better performances In
tlioee roleo lather than tako chances
of ruining the performance by letting
tho audiences see how they really
stood toward each other.
Tho Astor placo riots, Eomo of tho
bloodiest that ever stained tho streots
of New Yoik, fcrew dhectly out ot tho
rronblPS which Forrest, tho American
tragedian, had with, Macroady, tho
English actor. Forrest ulso had
troublo with Charles Kean, another
KugllHh actor, who was contemporary
with him. Macready claimed that For
rest had hissed him from a box, nnd
Forrest In turn charged that Macready
had hissed him.
Some of these actor feuds liavo had
sei Ions endings. William Terries, for
Instance, that lino actor who gavo
Henry Irving such lino Btipport, was
nuudered at tho stago door of n Lon
don theater by u crazed actor who had
brooded bo long upon what ho con
ceived to lmve Iipoii unjust treatment
received from Terrlss that at length
his mind gavo way and Jio slew tho
nigolow, who has Just flgureA In tho
Incident with Anna Held, figured also
In some Incidents at the old Webor
& Fields Music Hall. When Miss Held,
wont to Wober & Fields it was stipu
lated In her contract that nigolow
should accompany her. She felt that
slio could play her sceuos bettor if sho
played them with a comedian who
was accustomed to her niethod. Poter
Dalley und tho other nlrablo-wltted
membors of the Weborfleldlan aggre
gation had no disposition to lot 1! I go
low In easily. On Ills first nppearanco
thoy met him with a storm of im
promptu sldo play that thtew him off
Hlcluud Mansfield, who makes con
vincing lavo on tho stage, and who,
upon occasion, at suppers after tho
theater has entortalnod whole- com
panies for ti quarter of an hour mere
ly by repeating the words "I lovo you"
In different languages nnd with vary

quarrols with thoso actrqsses with

Clyde Fitch Revives One.
Clydo Fitch, in a kindly lettor to a
young and unknown playwright, said;
"I liked your play; I thought -it prom

Decause tho qurldslty of an ectresB

small town numcdf,ulu was tho homo
of her father hefororln? becamo post-
master at Memphis,, and Miss Fealy ,
wanted to seo it. So, jWhen the train
loft Memphis, cho asked th'e conductor
to lot her know when thoy reached the
station; then sho settled down to en
Joy tho panoramic vlow of tho Missis
sippi. Shortly heforo noon tho train was
suddenly stopped nt what looked like
a very well conducted farm, but what
on closor inspection becamo a railroad
station. JiiBt as Miss Fealy discov
ered tho name of Lulu on tho door of
the depot, tho conductor's voice was
heard through four or flvo earn cry
ing out tho name Then tho cry was
taken up by the brakemon until tho
.length and breadth of tho train echoed
with tho word. But no pasKcngor
mado any attempt to leavo. The con
ductor's angor became something akin
to rage when ho saw Miss Fealy calm
ly surveying tho surrounding country
and hor father's former nbodo with
marked though calm, attention.
"Lulu!" cried tho conductor, almost
In her car.
"Lulu!" shrieked tho'brakoman out
nldo her window
"Yes," said Miss Fealy, "I see tho

"Stop?" asked tho conductor; "we
don't Btop horo, This Js only a flag
stutlon, and wo'vo stopped flvo min
utes already. How lgng do you ex
pect us to wait for you 'to get off?"
."Oh, but I don't want to get off,"
said Miss Fealy. "I Jusfwanted to see
tho town in which my father "
Hut tho conductor did not wait for
tho rest of tho explanation. Ho pulled
tho ropo to signal tho onglneer, and
added another burning chapter to tho
report of belated conductors.

three-Dollar Bounty for EadhTall
Brings Passamaqlioddles from
Malrie to Take Part In
Bostoh.-rThat renl, live Indians ore
supporting themselves by killing jb1
In Boston harbor Is not known to
everybody around hero.
For some sertBOiis several Paisama.
quoddy Indians from EaBtport, Pleas
mil Bay, Old Town nnd other partupt
Maine have been earning a living dur
ing the summer months by killing
seals and presenting tho tails at the
city hull In Qulhcy, where they get a
three-dollar bounty for each tall.
So far this year Town Clerk Keith
of qulney says $543 has been paid out
In bounties to these enterprising In
dians, who make their camp at Squan
turn or on Peddock's Island
Ono of the Indians, Wllllo Nicholas,
lives with flvo others near the Portu
guese village on Peddock's Island In
the winter he and his people make
baskets; in the spring they fish with
weirs; In the summer thoy hunt seals,
and In the autumn they guide. But
they get more money from killing
seals than from any other source
Two men bo out In canoes painted
Ben green and bark like seals until
they attract the nnlniulB to within
shooting distance, when they kill
them with shotguns. Sometimes they
hunt by day and sometimes by night.
When hunting from canoes, they al
ways huvo to get to the leeward of the
seals In order to avoid being detect
ed, for seals have n very keen sense
of Btnell. Sometimes the crafty In
dians wrap themselves. In dark canvas
or blankets nnd He on Hangman's or
Venule's rocks, and thoy aro bo suc
cessful In Imitating the call of the
seal that .they aro able to attract
them near enough sometimes to kill
them with a club.
It la not an easy matter to get near
enough to shoot a seal, but It is far
moro difficult to get him after he has
been shot, for he circles around in the
water for a few moments and then his
tremendously heavy body which
often weighs D00 or GOO pouuds sinks
to the bottom. Some nights a couple
of Indians will get eight or ten seals,
which makes a fairly good night's
It has been said that the Indians
present tho snouto for the bounty in
Malno and then come up here with
the talis for another bounty. That
there Is nothing to prevent this being
done, except tho Indian's ponse of
honor Is perfectly true. Of course,
tlioy nro obliged tq swear that the
seals have Leeu killed, within the con
fines of the town or city In which the
bounty Is applied for. but perjuiy haa
been known to exist among Indiana
us well na Among white men. Thou,
too, the tnll'ls only two or three
Inches long and very small around,
and therefore lends Itself very readily
Many people have wondered why
the state encourages tho killing of
the seals Tho answer Is to be found
In tho oeul's stomach. Last year a
fish nnd gume wnidou found In the
stomach of ono senl 11 eelB, several
lobsters, a few flounders and general
assortment of sniolt nnd other small
fish to tho amount of one peck by
actual measurement. Multiply several
mealB per diem of this sort even by
the number of seals that have already
been killed In Qulney bay this season
that 1b 181 and you get sojue Idea
of tho competition which seals afford
the local fisherman.
