Prayer of a Sonbrrtte.
The people who live In stageland
have the strangest ways. I sat In a
box ir one of the theaters one evening
and I could see Into the wings on the
prompt" side of tbe stage. A comic
opera was on, and I saw one of the
leading women come and take her
stand there In the wings, waiting for
Iter cue. I could so her quite plainly.
and I watched her with curiosity, won-
lcriug If i-he were not cold In tbe tights
and thin gauze of her scant costume.
The comedian began the King speech.
the last word of which was to call her
on. Mse !oved her head, her lips moved.
anil thri-e she made the sign of the
cross with a devoutness which left no
room for doubt that she was actually
praying. An Instant later bhe had
frisked out on the stage with a laugh
and a dance step and a wink that was
nnv thing lut pious. Nolodv peeing
her could have dreamed that Just the
moment lfore the was actually pray
ing-praying for guidance In her work,
praying for strength to succeed, as
earnestly and with just as. much faith
and reverence as If tdie wtdl, as If h
were anything in the world but a danc
