)EDWIN B00T'I'S FIRST PLAY.
Richard III. in Stooen Armor In a BHati
more Cellar.
A small but daintily furnished parlor in a
flat, theatrical momentos of rare value, "old
timers" here and there-the unmistakable
blending of the "professional" instinct even
in home life-with the signs of happy do
mesticity found, so far as my experience
goes, more frequently in the households of
Thespians than the wondering, cynical pub
lie imagine possible; and for the central
object George L. Stout, who made his debut
as a boy with Edwin Booth, John S. Clarke
and others of more or less renown, now
stage manager at the Alvin theater. Stout
leaned back in his easy chair and talked
delightfully.
"Oh, it seems very long ago," he said,
"but I think we'll all remember it till we
die. You see, in Baltimore we boys-Ed
win Booth, Stuart Robson, Theodore Ham
ilton, John S. Clarke and myself-ware
bent on theatricals. We were 'crushed
tragedians,' but our fire would not be
quenched; so, after a council in which we
included William Talbot and Summerfield
Barry, we hired a cellar under a gambling
house kept by Lutz, poor Laura Keene's
husband. Our leasee was the negro jani
tor who had charge of the building, and he
agreed to keep our doings from the people
overhead if we allowed him to be door
keeper and take half the proceeds. As our
only burning ambition was to have
an oppoltunity or distinguishing
ourselves among our fellow boys,
we gladly acceded to his ter mse,
and in a short time the cellar was arranged
in this manner: Boards were put up at onu
end within which safliient dirt was dumped
to create a stage. The auditorium was
composed of the board benches only now to
be found in the few remaining 'barnstorm
era' in England, and our rates of admission
were as follows: Front seats, 3c; back seats,
20; gallery (a peculiarly constructed ar
rangement), ic. Our scenery was unique.
It consisted of a fiat made of a sheet, on
which, in soft red brick, was painted a
house. For a curtain we had a gayly patched
bed quilt, purloined from some attic stores,
whioh was drawn on strings.
"In this theater Edwin Booth may beasid
to have made his 'first appearance.'
"Our iuitial performance was Richard
III., owing to a predilection of Edwin
Booth in its favor, but he decided to pro
duce only the first act. We hunted about
and got anything that was bright and gaudy
for our costumes, but Booth as Richard
naturally required armor. Here was a di
lemma. Our resources and our bank ano
counts, needlesa to say, were meager. Bet
a happy thought ocourred to Edwin. His
father had not at that period played Shy
look for some time, and inthe attic at home
was an old :hylock costume. Thither
sped the young Richard, found the cos
tame, and we got out what, in the profea
alional vocabulary, we call 'concaves'-la'ge
,spangles used for armor. These he fastened
on to a niece of oil cloth and tied it on over
:h.s shoulders for armor.
'"Onr rehearsals proceeded quite to our
satisfaction, but we little reeked that mean
ewhile a special request had been made for
bthe elder Booth to give a performance of
Ih;s Shylock. Such, however, was the ease.
M1r. Booth, as a first thought hunted up his
ooil dress-remembner, those were not the
edAvs of the ready and realistio costumer's
"art-and it was missing. Quite innocently
1'little Joe Booth, who had witnessed the
purloiningeald: 'Edward had it down in the
'cellar theater.' Meanwhile we were in full
bblast-oar 'house' good, our mettle its
kkeenest. Edwin was declaiming grandly in
ihis oilskin and spangle armor, fine to be
lhold, 'A horse! A horsel' etc. Scene
at the door by our landlord-the
elder Booth looming with rage. Not
,knowing him, the darkey demanded pittl
1 lessly his three-cent admisiron, but the
never- to- be- forgotten, magnetic tones
reached the younger Booth. It was the
rvoice of his parent, as he well knew, and
iforgetful of histrionic triumph, he turned
eand lied precipitately for the first means of
eexit in vlow-a cut window in the back
scene, whence he hoped to escape down the
alley. The opening, however, proved too
-emall. 'Richard' was held midway, and his
father, in a towering passion, reached the
astage and belabored him unmercifullyl
Meanatime his cries resohed a policeman in
the street, who rushed in, and a general
'racket' ensued."--Pittsburg Leader.
Pronounced Hopeless, Yet Saved.
From a letter written by Mrs. Ada E.
Hurd, of Groton, S. D., we quote: "Was
taken with a bad cold, which settled on my
lungs, cough set in and finally terminated
in consumption. Four doctors gave me up,
saying I could live but a short tim? I gave
myself up to my Savior, determined if I
could not stay with my friends on earth 1
would meet my absent ones above. My
husband advised me to get Dr. King's New
Discovery for consumption, coughs and
colds. I cave it a trial, took in all eight
bottles. It has cured me, and thank God
I am now a well and hearty woman." Trial

Opportunity.
Master of human destiny am I,
Fame, love and fortune on my footsteps
wait,
Cities and fields 1 walk. I penetrate
Deserts and seas remote, and passing by
Hovel and mart and palace, soon or late
I knock unbidden once at eve:y gate.
If sleeping, wake; if feasting rise before
I turn away. It is the hour of state
And they who follow me reach every state
Mortals desire, and conquer every foe
Save death; but those who doubt or hesi
tate
Condemned to failure, penury and woe
Seek me in vain and uselessly implore;
1 answer not, and I return no more.
JNo. J. INOALTs.
But fail ye not in this respect,
Seize every opportunity to travel
Over the Chicago, Milwaukee A St. Paul
railway.
This is the advice of
