The Fanny Man and the Car Window.
There is often seen on a train the funny
man, who likes to wait until the Inst
minute before shutting his window when
the train is about to enter a tunnel. The
brafceman comes through the car crying
out in stenorian tones: "Shut up your win
dows I" in a way that makes some people
start guiltily, for about all one can hear is
the " shut up," and every conscientious
brakeman insists upon adding the "up" to
the "shut." However, about the funny
man: He looks scornfully at the bellowing
brakeman, as if to warn him that it is a
waste of breath to inform a veteran travel
ler that ther is a tunnel just ahead.
He knows the road so well that at the
very moment the cars leap into the black
ness of the tunnel his fingers fly to the
window latch. The spring is stiff and tbe
window sticks. Tugging and pulling and
jerking, with a little swearing thrown in,
he finally gets the window down, but for
thirty seconds, while the train has been
roaring through the tunnel, the smoke has
poured into t he car and every one is chok
ing and condemning that man to a place
which is specially unpleasant in summer,
while he puts on an injured look and mut
ters severe words about a company that
disgraces itself by having windows in its
cars which will neither go np nor go down.
The funny man never gets tired, how
ever, of trying to show how successfully
he can play his trick. New York Tribune.
STAGE HEART DISEASE.
Felt the Shingle Later.
The irrepressible small boy from East
Liberty came into the city via Fifth ave
nue line, accompanied by his father, who
frowned upon any attempts for him to be
come inquisitive. This was very hard on
tbe boy, and he sat in misery for ten min
utes, not saying a word. At Soho street the
car stopped to take on a lady attired in a
very loud red dress, with cheeks painted to
match. The gripman started with his
usual disregard for tbe equilibrium of tbe
passengers, and as a result the irrepressi
ble's father suddenly found himself hold
ing the new passenger on his lap.
"Oh, aint it funny," screamed the boy,
dancing with delight. "But ain't you glad
mama isn't here? You remember what
happened when she saw you holding Aunt
Fanny on your lap the other day." .
Tbe boy and his father alighted from the
car at the next street with an energy that
made the youngter smell tbe shingle in the
woodhouse two miles away. Pittsburg

Philadelphia, Oct. 9. Yesterday's
executive session of the general confer
ence of the Evangelical Association of the
United States, which was held in Christ

Bowman and Esher were expelled from
the church, and Bishop Dubs, who whs
found guilty' of certain charges by the
trial conference, came out ahead of Jus
enemies, the general conference having

Chicago, Oct. 9. At noon yesterday

How Leading; Actress Learned the
' Symptoms cf the Dread Malady.
It is not always way to make one's ob
servations. I remember that on one occa
sion I experienced considerable difficulty in
obtaining tbe subject I wished to study.
It was at tbe time that Messrs. Shook &
Palmer were nbout to produce "Miss Mnl
ton" at the Union Square theatre. Miss
Multon dies, but there is in the whole play
no word which indicates the nature of the
disease which causes her death.
After due consultation, the powers
decided that tbe lady should die of
heart disease; a very simple matter so far
as the powers were concerned, but a very
difficult matter to me, who had the part to
play. I knew absolutely nothing of heart
disease, nor could I find a single friend or
acquaintance who could assist me.
I turned to the doctor, under whose care
1 then was, and asked his help. After
some conversation be decid.W that angina
pectoris was what I was looking for, as it
seemed to adapt itself perfectly to the re
quirements of the character I described to
him. He began by telling me something
of the structure of the heart. He showed
me some ugly pictures, too, that looked, to
my eyes, like sections of ripe tomatoes with
blue radishes growing through them. He
taught me where my heart was located,
and informed me that, in the ordinary
stage gesture, when the hand seeks the
heart, the aforesaid hand is something like
a foot away from the songht-for organ.
He minutely and repeatedly described to J
me the attitude and expression of one en
during, in speechless, almost breathless,
agony, that awful torture called by doc
tors angina pectoris. This was to be used
for the climax of the play. So far we had
gone smoothly enough, but suddenly, to
use a theatrical expression, the doctor
He declared his utter inability to convey
to me an idea of the manner in which a
patient breathes when suffering from ex
citement or fatigue. That was unfortu
nate, for it was on that symptom I most
relied to indicate to the audience what was
Miss Multon's physical condition, her elo
quent language making plain her domestic
woes. I begged the doctor to show me bow
I should breathe, but he shook his head
and said, "No, nol you must see a sub
ject." At his next visit I saw be was
vexed, and pretty soon be informed me
that the only heart subject be had founj
was a man bearded to the eyes; but, said
he, while he savagely buttoned his coat,
"I'll find you a subject, or that man's
beard shall come off, for you must see that
movement of nostril and mouth."
Xot more than two hours after there
was a violent ring at the bell, and, glanc
ing from the window and seeing the doc
tor's carriage, I hurried to the hall, and,
looking down, saw a very cruel thing.
The doctor and a woman were standing at
the foot of th! long, long staircase. Then
he caught her by the arm, and, starting
by her side, ran her up the whole long
flight of stairs. Shall 1 ever forget that
woman's face as she stood swaying, cling
ing to the door frame! Her ghastly, waxen
pallor; the strained, scared look in her
eyes; the dilating nostrils; above all, the
movement of tbe muscles about the mouth,
which contracted the upper lip at every
hurtling, gasping breath!
The doctor pushed by her and hastily
whispered, "You are a student and not
well enough to attend" I don't know
whether he said class or lecture. I was
only sure of the word student. So, burn
ing with shame, I took my cue, and going
forward I felt her pulse and asked her a
few appropriate questions. We were alone
then for a few moments, and she told me
ber pitifully commonplace little story. I
questioned her closely as to bow anger or
surprise affected her, and finding she was
very poor and had a child to care for, 1
slipped a bill into her band as she rose to
was thanking me quietly when her
eyes fell upon the figure on the bill. In
stantly over ber neck, her face, her ears
there flamed a color so fiercly, hotly red
it seemed to scorch the skin. Her very
wrists, where they were bared above her
gloves, were red. Her hand flew to her
side in the very gesture the doctor had been
teaching me. She gave a little laugh, and
nervously remarked: "I I feel so ho
and nrickly. I suppose I'm all red! You
see it was the surprise that did it!
Don't look so frightened, miss. I haven't
no pain. I ain't red, neither, am I, nowf"
Heaven knows she was not. Her verA"
lips were white. So, with thanks and
pallid smiles, the poor soul removed her
self and her fell disease from my presence,
and I had received my second painful ob
The night before . the production of the
play, in a spirit of mischief, I drew up a
document tor tne aoctor to sign, in which
he acknowledged that in my study of heart
disease he had been my teacher. For, said
I, should the critics attack that part of my
work, you will then have to share tbe
blame. Laughingly I brought forth my
document. Laughingly he signed it.
The critics did not attack, but I still
keep tbe acknowledgment. Clara Morris
