MERRY MARCELINE'S MAGICMIMICRY A MARVEL
Entertainer nf KinisT. Delight
of Peoples, Idol of ChiU,
dren, Who Has Won Title
of World's Greatest Clown.
In the year 1SS6, or about that time, a
boy used to be seen In the streets of
Barcelona. Spain. He was a stocky
youngster, with strong arms and less
and keen black eyes that sparkled with
fun and mischief.
He was always up to pranks, and his
mother would frequently look s.t him and
say. "I don't know what will become of
that boy "
When his father came home from work
In the evening he would get a strap and
lead the bov to the woodshed. Then the
father would try to whip the boy. but
the bov was too quick for him.
He would dodge the flying strap, and,
wriggling from his father's hold, leap
through the window and rur down the
street as fast as the wind, turned flip
flops handsprings and somersaults so
quicklv that all the horses were fright
ened, and even the dogs put their tails
between their legs and ran for dear life.
One day the boy climbed up a tree, and
n a Spanish policeman passed under It
h fled to catch the po'.iceruan's hat
with a hook. but. unluckily the branch
on which he was sitting bent over so far
that the boy fell on the policeman's head
and broke his nose.
Before the policeman could arrest him
the boy flew home and climbed up the
chimney They looked all around for
him. under his bed. in the woodshed, and
evervwhere. but they could not find him
While they were looking, the policeman
whose noe had been broken exclaimed.
'If I ever see that young rascel, I will
shoot him "
Tins so frightened the boy that at
mgl t when it was ery dark, he climbed
up the chimney and ran over the roofs,
leaping from house to house until he
aa ut of danger: then he slid down
a lightning rod and ran all night long
until lie came to a little Spanish town
Thre was a big circus there called the

Instead Marcellne has the strongest ear

When the circus men fir the ring they
rim off the stage as fast as they can to

Ills Only Public Speech.
One day the London Hippodrome save
a matinee for the benefit of the Chil

girls crowded to see the Jugglers, the
horses, the ballet, and the clowns. After
his turn the little Spaniard who drops
his h's was applauded so vociferously
that he had to step Into a box and talk
to the house full pf goldenjocks and ap
plecheeks. It is his first and last pub

When Marceline was seven he made his
debut with his father and mother, broth
ers, and sisters seven of them who
were circus, performers in old Madrid,
where the mantillas come from. His turn
was to climb up to the top of a bamboo
pole, balanced on the shoulder of his
father When the boy reached the top
of the pole he very carefully stood on his
head He had to do this feat carefully,
not for fear that he would fall and break
his neck, but because If the pole fell and
dashed him into the audience, he might

After a while the family returned to a
castle In Spain to raise Guava Jelly and
play guitars and the diminutive member
of the troup started out alone. He went
to 'Germany, where they made him do
everything from dancing tn ballet skirts
to riding in steeplechases. Then he went
to Trance, and played for the good
Marseillaise, who tbrevy bouquets at him
and for the stolid Bretors. who hated to
pay to see the show, and thought that
they ought to have a rebate for applaud
lng the 'Parts that pleased them. He also
made Paris laugh, and went to the
Grand Prix and learned to play baccarat
and trente-et-quarante By this time he
could speak seven languages In private,
but refused always to speak a word on
the stage. He whistles, but whistles are
the same In ev ery language, like hisses.
Ills Home In Putney.
Ten years ago, when he was twenty
one, he went to Manchester, the smoky
town, where every one manufactures
something, and there Is lots of money
to spend on pleasure. He made a hit
with the public and he fell In love with
a rosy-cheeked English girl and mar
ried her. Later he went to London, and
shortly afterward bought a home at Put
ney, on the Thames, where he still digs
in the garden and rows and satis when
he Isn't tumbling over the backs of six

Mrs. Marcellne Is not an artist except
In the making of a game pie and York
shire pudding. Her performances on the
saucepan are much appreciated by her
young husband, and he says that he has
nevef regretted that, he jilayed Man

English girt. He Is glad that he didn't
marry a circus performer who would
anj have no breath left to cook the dln-l'

Marcellne believes that Englishmen are
apt to be rough husbands, but he thinks

I. would be a good idea to marry Amer

him call forth the quiet reflection. "There

the greater portion of the time, summer

when he was playing In pantomime, he

a morning off and had -ravs turned on
the injured shoulder. The result was not
encouraging. "We can't see through
such mostles." said the surgeon plain'
tlvely. "They hide the bones complete

and the shoulder took a year to get well.
Then he slipped on a piece of soap on
the stage and dislocated the other shoul
derbut that didn't keep him home either.
Marcellne has no children, but he says
that if be had any he would bring them
up as tumblers and acrobats, but he
thinks the boy who runs away with the
circus is a very foolish kid. He will be

perhaps. He will have to sleep and eat

about the wig and his fiery nose, flung

Belling, seeing that it was all up with
