"The Bottom of the Sea," a marine spec
tacle adcp'eS from the Freuch by Wil

per's theatre tonight. Coming as it does
direct from its New York and Bos:on pre
sentations the piece is to bs mounted
here in exactly tbe same manner that
characterized its success in those cities.
From all accounts the scenic and taechan
ical effects are really superb. It is, in
fact, on realistic scenery that the success
of the play mainly depends. Th j piece
de resistance is tbe scene showing the
bottom of the ses, with divers at work in
the wreck of a sunken ship. Tie battle
between one of the divers and a gigantic

the speaker and looked as smiling as
Gov. Fifer was there too, and some no
tables. The first two ballots, showed no
change from yesterday, but on the third

THE MILL OP. THE STORE.
One ;irl'a Story of Why She rrriVra the
. City n 1th Lra Fay and Freedom.
"IWe, Cash No. 17!"' The writer had
Hist ntrei one of the lare dry Roods
itoresof Boston during the holidiiy Bales,
when he heard the above cry, and turning
io look at the speaker, a you Die lady of 19
years, the reconitiou was mutual. Le
than a year before nbe was sewing in a
woolen mill in one of the many mill towns
nf New England, in which the writer had
been employed. She was a good sewer and
was paid tl.33 per day, and all hough she
was an orphan she had a good home, and
paid but fcj.50 per week for lwird, which
left her every week clear.
Now the question came to my mind.
How came she here? And having a leire
to hear her story, and there bein;: no chance
to hold a long eonverxation with her at
that time, nhc made a date with me for the
next ufternoon, which was Sunday, to call
ftt the house where she was rooming. I
called, and met there two other girls, whom
she introduced to me as her "chums."
After conversing for some time upon dif
ferent subject h I asked her how it was that
I found her working here in a store in Bos
ton, or if fhe liked it, and if she got more
pay than she got in the mill. She told me
the following story, and I have no doubt
that it is the story of hundreds of store
girls iu all the large cities. She had visited
I he city a short time after I had left the
mill, and while in one of the large store!
she got tbe idea she would like to be asales
l.idy, the work seemed to le so easy and
they all d rasped so Dice.
So, after going back to the mill, she could
not keep her mind on her work. Her mind
v.i in t tie city a saleslady, and at last
ilie eon 1.1 stand it no longer. So she left
her positiou in the mill, left her niee home,
and came into the c;ty. She applied for a
position as saleslady, and was offered C4
Why, how was she Koing to live on that
She could not get any kind of board for
less than $3.50 a wsek. Where were cloth
ing and shoes and other things necessary
for her to have coming from Not out of
the other fifty cents that wa6 left. Oh,
that was none of their business, and if she
proved competent after three months they
would give her fT per week. She had a
little muuey saved, and had enough of cloth
ing for the present, so she would take it
rather than go lck to the mill.
To the question of which was the harder
work, t he mill or t he store, her answer left
no doubt in my mind which whs tbe harder.
In the mill she wax treated respectfully,
while iu the store she had to put np w ith
all kinds of "cheap talk" from many cus
tomers, some of whom were thoe cheap
kind of "dudes." To the question f why
she did not go hack to the mill, she said she
could not, she bad got so useil to the city
that the quiet life of the mill would not do
for her now, but she wished that she had
remaiiru in the mill, where she whs happy,
instead of coming to the city, and her ad
vice to all mill girls who thought thct the
mill life was hard, if thty wished for a
harder one, come to the city n a -;.les!ady.
