Grossmith Rebelled Against Imitating
Weedon Grossmith In "From Studio
?o Stuge" has something sensible to
nay about the practice of Imitating tbo
methods and mannerisms of great ac
tors, a practice that was once more
frequent than It is now. On his re
turn to London be played a pnrt that
had been played many years before by
Charles Mnthcws and who had thus
established a sort of orthodoxy In Its
presentation. Mr. Grossmith relates:
"I was asked by the producer to do
tho same business that Charles Ma
thews did, and when making my exit
at the end of the first act the stage man
ager said. 'Now, Mr. (Jrossniith, throw
the tails of your frock coat over the
back of your head.'
?i 'Why?' 1 asked.
'"Because, Mathews did it." be re
"'Never,' said I. 'Not having had
the good fortune to see the groat
Charles Mathews. 1 naturally can't
imitate his methods, and I must do
things my own way.'
" 'Really,' said the producer and.
looking at the other members of the
Company for applause and encourage
ment, in his host cynical vein added.
'We have many of us heard through
press notices what a brilliant actor
Mr. Weedon Grossmith Is in America,
but Is he going to improve on Charles
Mathews in London?'
" 'That's not quite the point.' 1 replied.
'How Charles Mathews did ibis busi
ness I don't know. At any rate, he was
a gentleman In every pa t he played,
and I am much afraid his imitators
have vulgarized his business, for it
doesn't seem to mo possible that
Charles Mathews would make an exit
from a drawing room in the presence
of ladies throwing bis conttalls entire
ly over bis head. and. whether be did
or not, 1 absolutely decline to do It!' "
BEATS OF THE HEART.
Sounds That Tell Just How Th.it Won
derful Organ Is Working.
Do you know what a doctor bears
when he sounds your chest and lisleiis
to your heart beating'.'
Your heart, if it is quite sound,
makes a noise very like "lUU-dup, luh
dup, lub-dup," all the time. The two
syllables come very quickly together,
and between each "lub-dup" there
comes a paust?, the short period when
tln> heart is resting, as it. were.
TllO "luh' sound is due to the blood
llowing out of the heart, and the "dup"
is the closing of the Heart's valves
Just by the loudiicss of these two syl
lables the doctor knows if your heart
Is working as it should do.
Supposing the "dup" is very loud, for
instance, t! at tells him that the valves
are being "slammed to," just as a door
is, and that the pressure is greater
than it should be. The cause of this is
generally what is Known as an "aneu
If the valves are not closing properly
the doctor hears a sound very like
"dull" Instead of "dup." The heart is
then said to have a "murmur," ami the
physician knows what sieps to take to

BIRTH OF THE GRAND CANYON.

one on meeting Sir John Murray, the

ciety, referring to the Grand Canyon
of the Colorado. This was briefly the
answer, though not in his words:
"On either.side of the wide plain ex
tending from sixty to a hundred miles
to the right and left of the canyon
evidences of severe volcanic action are
visible, in the center was a plateau,
but you now look down upon It as the
vast chasm of the canyon. Thrice the
volcanic forces of nature, operating on
either side, violently ami with tremen
dous power, forced this plateau up
ward, and finally in one cyclopic, tie
tnctldoUS upheaval the plateau parted,
and the Grand canyon, the wonder and
mystery of the world, was born.
?imagine a loaf of dough rising si
lently under the continuous pressure
of the yeast until finally the crust is
broken and the loaf divided Into two.
Then look at this broken crust of
mother earth. In the early days a
vast area embracing a great portion of
the interior of the American continent
was covered with water. It was a
great sea .\|| oxer the canyon fossil
oyster shells proved this contention.
The Grand canyon opened; the waters
of the inland sea rushed through in a
tearing (lood and carved the fantastic
forms you now see."
The (ptestloner further inquired of
Sir .lohn. "No doubt this was all very
