At Harper's theatre tomorrow evening
will be seen Katie Emmett's play, "Trie
Waifs of New York." It is a melo-drama
of the very best character. There is
nothing blood-curdling about it, but the
complicated tale of the waifs is unrav
eled so rapidly and B skillfully that the
interest in the piece never flisjs. The
play is richly mounted, all the scenery
used in the production being carried by
the company in their own scenery car.
Prominent among the scenes that de
serve special mantion may be mentioned
the "Great Harlem Railroad Bridge"
scene, showing two trains crossing the
bridge in opposite directions, while Wil
lie and Gertie escape death by hanging
underneath the bridge from the trestle
work. Correct representations are also
shown of Castle Garden, Old Trinity
church and the Tombs Police Court
There is also a great fire scene in which a
real engine exactly the same one carrud
by "The Still Alarm" is used, together
with a team of horses.

Edison's First Telegraph Line.
I was talking a few days since with a
friend who lived at Fort Gratiot, Mich., at
the time when Thomas Edison spent his
boyhood there, and learned many interest
ing things of the great inventor. That the
bent of the boy's inclination was always
toward mechanical appliances and the lat
est inventions of which he could hear is
too well known to need reiteration. His
special fondness, however, was for con
structing crude telegraph instruments
With which to keep up constant communi
cation with his chum, who lived in the im
mediate vicinity. After an enormous
amount of work the little fellows succeed
ed in making two instruments, which were
carefully placed in their respective bed
rooms, so that early and late, unknown to
the rest of the houseitold, they could com
municate that flow of thought always on
tap between two youthful friends.
The intervening wires were.arranged to
escape the entangling influence of shrub
bery and fences by means of tall poles.
For awhile everything went on smoothly.
The thrilling experiences of fishing trips
were enjoyed in retrospect over the wires,
similar exciting plans weru evolved for
future use, and the barnyard statistics were
transmitted with unwavering exactness.
One morning, however, the boys awakened
to find all this changed and where order
had prevailed was only chaos. During the
night a cow had strayed into the inclosure
and after knocking down the poles suc
ceeded in so entangling the wires about
her legs that her astonishment and dis
tress were voiced to the neighborhood in
mournful bellows which made the night
hideous. The greatest damage, however,
was to thedelicately adjusted instruments,
which had been so injured by the cow's
novel wire pulling as to be utterly spoiled
for future usefulness. Kate Field's Wash
ington. Helping a Mau to Suicide.
It is remarkable how a suicide by a cer
tain method or in a certain place will lead
to another of the same kind. A surgeon
of the Middlesex hospital, in London, went
into a barler shop to be shaved. The bar
ber spoke of a man who had been unsuc
cessful in n uttempt to kill himself by
cutting his throat.
"He could easily have managed it," said
the surgeon, "h.d he been acquainted with
the situation of the carotid artery."
"Where should he have cut?" asked the
barber. The surgeon told him. He at
once left the room, and not returning as
soon as was expected the surgeon went to
look for him and discovered him in tae
yard with his head nearly severed from his
body. Albany Kxprcss.
