A Terrible Threat.
A janitor in a blue shirt was cleaning
the windows of a bank at Broadway and
Park place the other day after offic
hours, when a tramp came along, who.
after eying him a few moments with
envy, yelled to him:
"Hello, there, you chap in the bank,
can't you throw a fellow out a little
money? I'm clean broke, and almost
anything would be welcome."
The janitor went on cleaning the win
dows. He heard what the tramp said,
but wouldn't admit it.
The tramp paused a few moments and
then yelled: "Come, now, don't be ahog.
There must be a million dollars in there,
and all you've got to do is to chuck a
bundle of it out. Are yon going to do
it or aren't you?"
Still no response.
The tramp began to chafe tinder the
galling liauteur with which he was be
"If you don't give me some of that
money, I'll start a report that the bank's
in trouble," he yelled. "If ever there
was a first rate hog, it's you."
After 10 minutes had elapsed and no
one hud taken the least notice of the
tramp ho began to walk 6lowly away.
As ho reached the gutter he turned
round, shook his fist at tlfc window clean
er and muttered:
"When the commune is declared, any
one who wants money will only have to
walk into a bank and ask for it. 111 be
there, my beauty, when the day comes,
and I'll point you out to the fellow citi
zens as an insolent and bloated symbol
of wealth. You just wait, my friend,
till the call to arms is sounded, and
you'll find me right on the spot ready to
tell what I know about the enemies of
the proletariat." New York Herald.
A Theatrical Ilmmcr.
There is one difference between Amer
ican and Euroican theatersas marked as
their schedule of prices and their usher
ing system, and that is in the matter of
"dressers." The European manager em
ploys about half a dozen dressers who
act as body servants of the leading actors
in his company and a reregnlar employees
of the house, like gas men, cleaners and
scene sldfters. The American actor,
however, dresses himself or else hires a
man to assist him. When he does hire a
man. it is usually a fellow player who is
"doimj" small parts and is glad of the
chance to increase his $10 wages by JJo
from tho leading or heavy man or first
The dresser has not only to assist in
changing his master's costume, a per
formance requiring great expedition, but
makes repairs, folds and puts away the
clothing, packs and unpacks the trunks
and sees that the dressing table is sup
plied with paints, wigs, combs and other
needful articles. In the European thea
ters the dresser seldom or never acts,
though he is often an actor who has been
forced tiff from the stage by illness,
lameness or loss of voice. He is gen
erally prompt, quiet, a little obsequious
and hopeful of tips at the end of a run
or of a season. New York Sun.
