Juliat Wanted Limelight and Got Mora

At a small seaport town in England
a lady star actress of the third mag

do justice to myself." she said to the
i manager, who combined theatrical en
terprise with the conduct of a row or
bathing machines, "if I do not have a
lime (limelight) thrown on me when
I appear on the balcony."
"We ain't got no limelight, miss, but
I think we could get you a ship's blue
light." replied the obliging manager,
and to this the lady agreed. The lad
who went to the shop to buy the blue
light brought back a signal rocket
which was given him by mistake. The
prompter was her own man, and in his
