Curing little for either 'as a profesion, ho
mbarked upon a stage career, which he has
pursued without interruption ever since.
His first notable appearance was as the
Biron Clievrial In "A Parisian Romance,"
tn which he died so realistically that the
dally newspapers the next morning from
Maine to California printed his obituary
and lamented the early demise of so tal
ented an actor. Ho was revived, however,
by the prompt administration of press no
tices In large docs, and has proceedd from
one triumph to another ever tlnce. His
"Doctor Jekyll and Mr. Hyda" was of such
vivid dramatic power that an ambulance
service was established between his thea
ter and the various sanitariums cf the ity.
and ho was required by the Board of
Health to provide every occupant of an or
chestra chair with free transportation
thither at the close of every performance
In case It was needed.
His success In dual roles led him next to
produce a composite performance of "Rich
ard IH" and the "Mikado." In which he
played tho two roles of the wicked King
and Koko. This effort established hl3 po
sition as a comedian of marked originality,
whereupon ho dramatized Mr. Clydo Fitch's
farco of "Beau Brummel," the Berry Walt
of tho Regency. In this the young actor
climbed another runs on the ladder of suc

Gilletto, William.
Actor, author, smoker and detective; alias
Sherlock Holmes. Born Hartford, Conn.,
July 21. 15S3. His early joitth was -pent In
learning how to smoke, which feat, after
many unsuccessful attempts, he finally ac
complished in 1SG5. The statement that be
was torn with a cigar in his mouth is not
true. It was not until six months after his
b'rth that, mistaking one of his father's
cheroots fur his tc.ttung ring, he first ac
quired the taste for tobacco. At 10 he gave
tho first indication f his genius as a dra
matic author, writing a thrilling drama in
seventeen acts and a prologue, entitled,
"The Stolen Ptrfecto; or. The Old Tobacco
Trail." This was in rtallty the hrtt of the
interesting series of dramarizat'oni, cf
cigars anil detectives that hae since made
this author famous.
The young playwright followed this at the
ago of 12 with "Generously Good, a Threo
AU Study in Nicotine, by William Gillette.
Btq . the Nutmeg Shakespeare." Neither of
these piavs was e.er put upon the stage,
bud it Is the unhappy fact that at the age
of l.' the young author used his manuscript
to make wrappers for the corn snk cigar
cttfs bo took up smoking i't that time. In
1S77 he went upon the professional stage m
a comedy lole In a melodrama entitled "The
Porto Rico Breva; or. Beppo the Tobac
con'st." Later on he produced the famous
tragedy "Colorado Madura, the Bandit Chief
of Havana."
Finding st igo hfe somewhat exacting in
the late eighties, he went to Edinburgh,
where he formed a partnership with Doctor
A. Conan Doyle, for whose famous studies
of detectiio 1 f e in Sherlock Holmes he
posed. Doctor ')oIes keen insight into
character and Mr. Gillette's almost cyclo
paedic knowledge of the Ins and outs of
cigar ashes formed an admirable combina
tion, and ore w.ilch. In spite of them
selves, has continued popular until this day.
Doctor Dujle has tried to kill Holmes by
drowning him, and Mr. Gillette has endeav
ored to smoke him to death, without avail.
At present the actor-author is acting as
brigadier gm'rnl of tru American army ot
lnias.on stationed at London. By humane
methods, in which the water euro plajs no

St. Charles, 3Io.. May IT The Democrat
Ic County Convention was held In this city
, RDEKS for fortv-five
were refused by the
Saturday, May 10th.
uruers ior over iniriy minion eijjui-pounu grape-
baskets were also refused one day last week.
This makes a. refusal of business in one
amounting to more than
One Million Dollars.
Present facilities are crowded to the utmost limit, and '
not another new contract can be taken until some of the new t
machines arc finished.
Besides these definite and positive offers of new business
from the fruit kinjjs of America, there are innumerable ncv
inquiries for supplies in smaller volume which cannot tjj:
furnished at anv price. --
Next spring the equipment
business. l$j
By September 1st this year the present output will tr''
doubled. By January 1st it will be ten times as great as now!
Next year the Mcrp;anthaler-Horton Basket Machine
Company will sell and manufacture and deliver more than
six millions of dollars' worth of fruit baskets and will earn 4
bip; dividend on its entire capital stock. r
It is extremely gratifying- to all that the" exhibition of
the work of the machines in Xew York City, Philadelphia arrd
Chicago has made the superior quality of the baskets turned
out by the machines so apparent to the big buyers that thej
havc not waited to be approached for business, but they have
voluntarily urged their orders for this year's needs upon the
Company. .
The shares are now selling at
(Par value $1.00, Full-Paid and Non-Assessable)
and are undoubtedly the most
to find on this continent.
