SPORT THAT IS RATHER CRUEL
Build a Flro Around a Scorpion and
It Will Sulctde.
Tho scorpion is n bad bedfellow, and ho
lias a menn trick of hiding In vour boots
and ftlnitlnc jou when you put them on,
811)8 tho Sun Francisco .Vamfner.
Hut you can bavo fun with him after a
fashion. If you want to bring out tho boat
qualities ot a scorpion build a llttlo corral
of dry leavt'H or paper around him and set
Uro to it at all points.
Make tho circle about a foot In diameter,
bo that tho names will not touch your pris
oner. When lie sees Iho ring, of flro the
scorpion will try to escape, first ot ono place
and then nt unothcr, but tho flames vi IU
drivo him back ovory time, and when ho
realizes that he Is completely surrounded he
will retreat to tho centre of tho ring and de
liberately commit suicide by curling, his tall
over ami EtlugltiK himself in tho back.
So you see that naturo sanctions suicide
under sonic circumstances, lu snlto of what
ttio preacherii say ubout it. Tho scorpion
tenches a lesion that a man had better re

A Pioturesque Story About Wilton
Laokaye and Johi Kellerd.
Manager Gllmore Has the Grip and
Nat Goodwin Imumnlii.
A somewhat piotnreique story was told on
the Illalto yesterday ot those two excellent
actors, Wilton Lackaye and John Kellerd, who
are both playing at the present time la "Tbe
Power ot tbe I'resi" at the btar Theatre.
Lackaye and Kellerd ate not Intensely In
terested In each other. They conn el some
what, each being one of tbe Le,t stage villains
in the city. If tbey were women, of course, we
could say ibat they were Jealous. Being
men, however, that la lmj.ojstlle. Men don't
know the meaning of Ihe word Jealousy. At
any rate Lackaye an I Kellerd are never seen
on Broadway together. Ot Isto managerial
Indiscretion baa cast them In the asme pieces.
They were both In "The Clcmencesu Case" al
tbe standard. Now they are In " Tne Power
of tne Press." A night or two ago there was
a conflict. Wilton Lackaye bad Just left the
stsge. Kellerd remslned to ntter a particularly
effective speech, In which he has the whole au
teutlon of the audience, and In which ne has
made a great hit Kellerd began his lines, and
he had no sooner started, than according to
the story Mr. Lackaye preaaed a myetcrioua
button. Instantly a moat neceisary stage
light was extinguished ono Kellerd waa obliged
to deliver bla lovely lines unlllumlncd. 'the
actor waa furious. As he left tbe stage, be
strode up to Lackaye, and In tones, which tbe
villain weata when be still pursues her, aaked
blm how he dared to do seen a thing, whit he
thought, whst be didn't th'uk, wto he was,
snd why ho was It. No Hood was shed, but
the air waa rosy with anticipatory gore.
