The End Came Another Way.
A distinguished actor was one tim,
engaged at one of our leading provin
clal theaters In a drama In which h,
attempts an escape from a convict prif
on, first by getting rid of his fetters b,
means of a file and lastly by gettin
over the prison wall. In the act o
doing this he is shot at by a warde:
and killed.
One particular night the drama ha(
run its usual course up to the poini
where the actor attempts the escap<
over the prison wall. The warder. at
usual, presented his rifle, but instead
of a loud report nothing but a fainl
clicking sound was heard. The rifl
was lowered and after a brief delay
again pointed, but with the same dis
appointing result.
The audience now began to hiss and
jeer. The disgusted actor then got oil
the prison wall and, staggering toward
the footlights, exclaimed. "It's all up
I've swallowed the file!" and fell pront
on the stage amid the laughter and ap
plause of the audience. - Pearson'V
Mountains Had Not Moved.
The story is told that when Judge
William Rogers was chairman of the
school committee in a New England
town one examination day he went
around questioning puls)1 of the mid
die grade. He asked a boy named
Rock where the Rocky mountains were.
The boy answered correctly, but faifed
to be promoted that term.
The following year the judge asked
the same question, Rlock replied, "The
same place they were last year."
