Window Clang Combine.
A Cure complete combine of the
window glass manufacturers is under
way. and the price is to be increased
13 per cer.t. A press dispatch from
Cincinnati, published in the New York
Journal of Commerce and Commercial
Itullctiu. gives tin account of a meeting
of those Interested and their decision
for a permanent organization:
"There was a general discussion of
the prevailing depression in the trade
the last year, and it was the opinion
of those present that the trad would
be benefited by the formation of a
permanent organization. A commit
tee was appointed to devise ways and
means to bring about this result. It
was stated that loth the jobbers and
manufacturers would join bands in the
movement and that they will have the
assistance of the glass workers.
"As an oversupply is assigned as
the cause of the depression, it was de
cided to increase the price cf glass 15
per cent within the nest three months
and to shut down the mills on June 1
The statements in that dispatch that
the fT!: f:'tnrers and glass workers
Iave joined hands lu the movement to
chut down the mills is extraordinary.
Generally workmen are opposed to
lack of work, but with the glasswork
ers it would seem to be different, and

The tragic actress was sitting in her
boudoir thinking rrf the wild enthusi
asm she had cxcitixl in "iueen Mary"
the night before. Suddenly looking up.
she saw a well driesed man standing
in the doorway.
T have not receivied your card, sir,"
she said in an o fftsidi.il tone. "How
did you get up here without being an
nounced?" "I need no introduction, madam." re
plied the man. "I come from your
Cousin Elizabeth. It is the who gives
uie access to you."
There was an unmistakable sign of
insanity about the man. a glttcr in
the eye. She had once boiorv encoun
tered such a person, who had been
much affected at seeing her perform,
and she suspected this migjit be a sim
"You were at the theater last night?"
she asked coolly.
"I was. I saw on the mimic stage
Uie semblance of reality. I came to
enact the real."
"In what capacity?"
"The principal part in the last act of
the tragedy, the headsman."
The woman shuddered. It was evi
dent that this dethroned reason had
been turned in the channel of murder.
Hut she controlled herself. Having
front the first realized her danger and
having a vague plan of saving herself
by humoring the man till she could
summon help, she had assumed the
tone of a queen.
"The headsman! And what do you
in the chamber of your victim? Your
place is on the scaffold."
The man looked about hLm, as if on
another scene. Was he on Tower hill,
the magnates of England sealed close
ly about tin? scaffold, beyond the com
mons, packed closely, with upturned
faces, or was he within the narrow
limits of a prison chamber? The wo
man studied his face and knew from
his attitude that he was takLng the
pose depicted in pictures of the heads
man of the sixteenth century.
"We stand on the scaffold." he said,
looking at the floor, "and there." point
ing to a foot rest, "is the block. Stand
up that I may cut off y our locks."
"It is customary," the woman stam
mered, "on such occasions for a war
rant to be issued signed by the royal
hand. Is this a legal execution or a
"The warrant, madam. Is in the
hands of the sheriff. Como, lot us pro
ceed. The people are becoming clam
orous." The actress was terror stricken. If
she called for help it might precipitate
matters. She could not escape because
there was no other egress than that in
which the man stood. Something must
be done to turn the bent of his mind.
Presently: summoning ail her resolu
tion and assuming a bitter tone, she
"Can it be that our liege lord. King
Henry, is minded to bring us. his true
and faithful wife, to the block?"
"King I Ienry ?"
"Yes. man; King Henry. Anil I his
queen. Katheru.e. She rose anil wont
on with tragic fervor:
"A woman (I tlare pay without vainglory)
Never yet branded with suspicion?
Have 1 with all my f;:!l affections
Still met the Uins? I.ovcd him next heav
en? Obeyed him?
Ucen out of fondness superstitious to him?
Almost foryt my prayers to content him?
And am I thus rewarded?'
While she spoke she fixed her eye up
on that of the lunatic ami threw all
her soul info her part, her powers in
tensified by the knowledge that she
was playing not to a crowded house
for fame and money, but to a single
madman for her life. The man stood
looking at her. a shadow of perplexity
gathering on his brow. The actress

you not the queen of Scots?"
"I am queen of England.
I dare not make myself so guilty.
To give up willingly that nohle title
Your master wed me to. Nothing but
Shall e'er divorce my dignities."
The man saw before him a woman
who was a queen and all a queen, but
not the queen he wanted. In every
word, every gesture, every step, the
action impressed him. What was this
that was befuddling his poor brain?
He was there to UlM:nl the queen of
Scots, and he was listening to the
plaints of the queen of England.
'Madam." he faltered, "your suffer
ings have turned your brain. You are
not Katherino, queen of England, but
Mary, queen of Scots."
Seeing lntr advantage, she pressed it.
Standing for a moment, her eyes fixed
on his in silence, presently she ad
vanced a step, then another, iointing
her finger at him as some avenging
spirit coming to her destruction. Then
she spoke or rather hissed:

She hoped that some one below would
