A theatrical man teTUi tiie following
6tory. He did not attem t to vouch for
its truth, so the writer A es not, merely
Kivinsr it here for what it is worth as an
illustration of a woman' will. The roan
who told the story als disclosed the
names of those about whom it ia related,
hut owinz to the doubt t bout the abso
lute veracity of the tale t would not be
fair to mention the nam Suffice it to
gay that one was an act r and the other
an actress, and both very well known to
the public. So call the actor 1 be
cause that is alont as f ir as one can get
from his name, and ihe actress Miss
A, because her nanie is nothing like
Miss A bi-si.lw bang perhaps the
most prominent chara -ter in the play,
was also the staire manager, and it, was
she who regulated Mr. Y 's salary.
Now Y luid Ion;: contended that
his salary was not one-It; Jf what it should
be, and Miss A d s-.lared as firmly
that this was neither h re nor there, for
the salary wofild rei tain unchanged.
This condition of alia rs did not make
the two love each other as good Chris'
tians are expected to do. Such ssenes
as these (behind the wngs of course) be
"When are you going to raise my sal-
"All right, then. I leave you to-mor
"Very well, why li n't you?""
Or the war might be varied to this
"Are you going to 1 awe my salary uua
week?" , ' ;
. "No." '
. "No." '
Thut determined 'never" wan a dis-
a.Teeable check to trgument. Finally
y worked out a nb-plot in the play.
In one act he, the not !e hero, carried Miss
A from atop Horyto the ground
down a ladder. One night when this
scene came on he st pped upon the first
round of the ladder as usual uoliiing in
his arms his fair burden. But instead
of coming down n ickly as usual, as a
vigorous, invincible hero should, he
"Now," he wht pered in her ear,

German Cough and Kidney
Cure is invaluable. It contains
no opiate, so that it does not
deaden the organs, and there is
no fear from an overdose. Peo

with no deleterious effect but
