One of the best entertainments which
has been see a at Harper's theatre this
season was tae presentation last evening
of the do met tic drama of McKee Rankin
and Fred Maeder, "A Runaway Wife "
The pathetic story of the play has been
told in these columns and it is only ne
cessary to add now that it was produced
last evening in a manner which was ex
cellent from beginning to end. Andrew
Robson's "A-thur Eastman" is a studied
and strong character, while as "Lady

high order of talent as an emotional ac

Port Byron' Sensation.
The Port Byron school case is still in
hearing in the circuit court. A number
of witnesses have been examined for the
defense, the testimony tending to show
that Miss Spaid was an iocorrigable pupil
and had the reputation of being a hard
pupil to manage. Other witnesses were
examined who stated that they had not
noticed any difference in her hearing after
the time it is claimed she was injured.
Prof. Davis, the defendant, when on the
stand denied having struck the girl on the
ear, but said that he slapped her on the
cheek. The witnesses for the defense
will probably all be examined today and
the arguments be begun tomorrow.

Different Wayi of Stopping a Bleeding- Cut.
A wine merchant said: "My ceHarmen
have a funny way of stopping bleeding.
They think nothing of acut fiDger or hand,
or even of a large wound. They run to the
nearest spirit cask, or claret, if spirits are
not handy, and let a few drops fall on the
wound. It acts as an immediate styptic.
Then a big dusty old cobweb is taken from
the nearest bottle or corner of a bin and
clapped on tinht over the cut or abrasion.
Cobwebs are splendid healing agents."
"Sailors," said another man, "are never
at a loss nnder Buch circumstances; their
favorite styptic at sea is a bit of unraveled
tarred rone. On land they will take the
quid of tobacco from their mouth, or the
lining of their cap, and its effect is aston
ishing. But I have seen a man wild drunk
after such a quid has been tied over a
wound. I suppose the nicotine gets into
the blood and acta as an intoxicant."
"Carpenters," 6id another gentleman,
"if they cut themselves pick tip a handful
of fine shavings and clap them on the
wound, and joiners swear by a dab of glue,
but one of the quaintest things I ever saw
used was by an old farmer up in Chester
county. He got his hand badly torn by a
bit of old wire fence, and it bled consider
ably. Without a thought he stooped down
and dng up a handful of soil, spat on it
and worked it quickly into a paste, and
laid it on the wound and bound it up with
his handkerchief. In an astonishingly
short time he was at work again as if noth
ing had happened." Xew York Recorder.
The Author as a Side Show.
Is it not, when one comes to think about
it, carryingrthe charitable appeal to rather
a shrill pitch to ask an author to make a
free contribution of himself to what are
known as author's readings? In the au
thor's readii what attracts is usually,
not the composition or the elocution, but
h author's personality. The author's
reading imposes upon the author the task
of exhibiting not his talents or achieve
ments, "but himself; of stepping before a
company of carious spectators and show
ing them whether he is tall or short, fat or
lean, fair or dark, well clad or iU clad, easy
or awkward; whether he is the man they
have fancied him as they followed him in
his writings, or whether he is not Bo far
as the nature of the service is concerned,
