Golnar on the Stage.
It Is my honest conviction, based
upon no little observation, that nine
tenths of the desire to go upon the
stage proceeds from vanity vanity
pure and simple. What does the aver
age young person know of the require
ments of the stage, of the difficulties
that beset it? Nothing. He visits the
theaters and sees the handiwork of
some clever dramatist presented by
skilled actors with an ease which it
seems absurd for the audience to ap
plaud. Of the natural aptitude, the
long training, the nerve destroying re
hearsals, the struggles and the heart
burnings he knows nothing, of course.
He sees only that It must be a glorious
thing to be in the glare of the foot
lights, with fine feathers and heroic
or humorous speeches, the observed of
all observers, with the plaudits of the
multitude ringing in his ears. It looks
an easy, deiigntrui way or earning
a living, a fortune, and like the child
and the moon he wants It!
There is no royal road to success on
the stage. It is an exacting profes
sion. Ho man, no woman, reaches
success without a great deal of hard
work and many hard knocks at the
unrelenting hands of experience-no

Diaeaso on Stair Ralla.
"I make it a rule never to touch a
stair rail, especially fn an office block
or a public building," said a prominent
physician of this city. "There Is no
doubt In my mind that many con
tagious diseases are communicated
through them, and the theory certainly
has common sense to back it People
who are in good health very seldom use
the handrail in mounting a flight of
stairs, but those who are sick or weak
are quite apt to need its assistance. If
they happen to have some contagious
disease, especially some form or ecze
ma, the next person who comes In con
tact with the rail stands an excellent
chance of catching It. I have treated
several people for skin disease In my
private practice who first showed signs
of the malady on the palms of their
nanas, ana 1 am convincea mat stair
rails were the source of infection.
"There is a historic example, by the
way, of the readiness with which cer
tain forms of eczema may be trans
ferred through some such an agency
as I suggest. During the siege of
Toulon, Napoleon, who was then a
sublieutenant of artillery, is said to
have snatched the swabbing rod from
a clumsy gunner and helped serve the
piece himself for several rounds. The
gunner happened to have an unpleas
ant skin disease, and the sublieutenant
was an emperor before he got rid of
It." New Orleans Times-Democrat.

Paris exposition to be treated for their

The work of the "claqueurs" is not,
as will be readily seen, intellectually
of a very high order. The chief is sup
posed to have -taken voluminous notes
at the rehearsals of the play they are
seeing performed, to have consulted
with tho manager, to have chatted
with the author in short, to have
made a close study of the entire work
on which his "brigade"' is to be en
gaged. He is the spring of the claque.
The men under his orders, scattered
here and there under the chandelier,
are merely parts of the machinery, and
they would no more think of applaud
ing on their own account than they
would think of flying.
Once upon a time there was a daring
claqueur who did not wait for the sig

He Doesn't Mean It.
When you hear a young man say,
"I don't believe In a woman having
anything to do but sit and read or
manicure her finger nails all day, I
don't want my wife to be busy about
anything," why, of course, you know
that the young man is simply talking
against time. He doesn't mean a word
he says, and it is safe to warrant that
he is the first man who would be bored
to death by such a girl. This young
man may like to fancy that he is a be
liever In such false sentiments, and
perhaps he does believe In them for
the moment of saying. But this may
more than likely be only his way of
protesting against the wave of energy
which the girlhood of today is respond
ing to. out of which perhaps may
come salvation even to man. Or else,
possibly, there is nothing more than sly
method in his old school assertion.

to secure an agreement to reduce the

" double the price. In the same way it
is hoped that the cotton growers can
be brought .together and the acreage
reduced until the price ranges in the
neighborhood of 10 cents a pound. Oth

' consideration, but as wheat and cotton
are the main staples on which the
farmer depends for a money crop the

Many girls and women find it necessary to earn their own living In
various kinds of employment. Their work is often so hard and confin

for tiresome tasks. Weakness nearly always makes its appearance in the

and coming and going at the beck of a superintendent or foreman, in
