With soino very few exceptions, which It were invidious to name, but which all in tho railway world know as such ex ceptions, the railway corporations of tho Ignited States literally live from hand to mouth and havo no working or reserve capitalwhatever, although their business requires it more than any other.

After two years of patient wnitiugand ttutly h young ucUtss, who was an un tVrstudy iu buu of tho principal stock companies in'town, gave nj her position tho iJtiior day because during all that timo she nover got nn opportunity to dis play hor talents before tho public. Sho was mi tho salary list of tho company, nud as wages nvo paid 6? wlSeks in tho year bj that particular organization it seemed lather likoquitting ngood thing, but it was not a question of finance with hor. Sho is nn uetrea of recognized abil ity, uml understudying was not particu larly suited to her taste. Sho had part after part in now plnys and reproduc tions, but tho principal somehow or oth er maunged to got through without being 111, or never suffoied nuy nmhap, so it Beemed us if tho nctross was destined to become, a permanent uudorctuily. This instance, is only one 6f numberless simi lar oxpyrieuees showing tho trials and tribulations of understudies. All tho big stock companies are well supplied in the inattor of undorstudles, and while they are lcquired to keep a certain number of professionals on hand they have innnmorabloapplicationsfrom amateur aspirants for histriouic honors, who aro only too willing to bervo as un derstudies on tho chauco that some acci dent will tako them to tho front. Most of those coiuii from tho different schools for tho training of actors. Tho under studies receive their p.vrts almost at the same time they aiedeliverod to tho prin cipals. They aro rehearsed regularly with the company and uro presumed to bo as well prepared for tho first night of a play as tho principals. Manager Charles Frohman's company is probably one of tho best equipped or ganizations iu the country in tho way of understudies. Eight of those, are em ployed as regular members of the com pany tho year round, and while they aro probably not seon moro than onco or twico during a soasou they aro always ready for any emergency that may arise. Augustiu Daly's and A. M. Palmer's com panies aro also well supplied with under studies, and both havo long lists of ama teurs ready to go on at a moment's no tice in cusoof sickness or other necessity. Evory big traveling organization gen erally carries two understudies while on tho rOfld. Some companies dispense with their services, however, by requiring tho members of the company to make them selves proficient in two or moro part. Thus if tho first comedian should sud denly bo inpapacitated tho second come dian jumps in, and so on all through the ca3t. Tho understudies who travel regu larly with the company are usually a man and n woman. Tho former under studies nil tho actors, whilo the latter is perfect in all thfe feminine roles. Their salaries nnd expenses are on a par with those of tho principals. Although ranuv of the stars now con spicuous in the theatrical firmament be gan their dramatic career as understud ies, it is not ofteu nowadays that the stars themselves nro understudied. It is generally assumed by the managers that tL1 star is tho attraction for the public, and to substitute somebody else is to practice a deception which is injurious to the show. In dome. Instance, how ever, where tho star has had to ba re placed by an understudy, t.e letter has made even a better hit than the star. Billy Crane wis xu ucuiratudy in the beginning, and Manager Joe Brooks tells an nmnsing anecdote of tho actor's first experience as an understudy. He served in that capacity with a company that DTOduced "The Daughter of tho Regi ment" in this city some years ago. Among tho parts which Crano had to xxnnmit to memory was that of the no tary. It was a particularly hard part be cause the notary had to begin by de claiming a long legal notice. Crano got the part pat, but iu order that thero should be no possibility of his making a break ho copied th6 process into a book which the notary wa3 supposed to carry. The notary wore a robe that trailed on tho floor. In makinghis entrance Crane's foot becatno tangled up in the robe and he pitched headforemost on tho stage. The book with tho prompt lines flew across tho stage. Crane pulled himself together in a moment, and without los iug his presence of mind began firing the process off. He wont throngh with out a break, nnd his original entrance made a hit with tho audience. One of the most notable instances of understudying was that fnrnishsd whilo Deninan Thompson was in tho midbf of his long run with "Tho Old Homestead" at the Academy - L Music. Walter Gals, whofeo characterization of Happy Jack, tho tramp', 'was supposed to be inimi table, was ill, and jit tho oleventh hour tho munager heard of tho trouble. Tho part was a most important ono in tho cast, and nobody could be found to tako it among tho members of the company. Finally a young Irishman named James Fitzgerald, who was acting as dresser to Thompson, astonished that nctor by de claring that he wouM tako tho part. It seems that ho waff understudying Galo right along unknown to anybody. Fitz gerald went on that night and imitated Gale to a dot tn everything except tho lalter's sonl racking cough. Young Fitzgerald made a hit and played Happy Jack many times, but his career -was brought to an untimely closo by an at tack of pnonmonia, to which ho suc cumbed. New York Sun. Tho Word Mother.

"But speaking of train robberiee," put in the colonel, "reminds me of a man I met when I was in command of Fort D. A. RuBeell at Cheyenne. He was an ex prose messenger named Smith, and his run was on what they called out there the 'high line' of the B. and M. railroad. Smith ain't much of a man to look at, bnt he was great in action, as you'll agree. "I'd heard of Smith before I met him. He'd killed two men down in western Kansas, aud they wero saying around Cheyenne that he was 'bad.' So I waa curious to get him to tell me the story, and after awhile he did. "He used to have a run on tho Santa Fe down where it crossed into Colorado. All the messengers, you know, carried guns in those days they do yet, for that matter but Smith understood "the use of a six shooter better than some of his mates. Thinge had been so smooth on his run for so long that lie got a bit care less at last and used tp leave the door of his car unlocked so uiat the brakemen could come in and talk with him when ever they liked without Ids having to go to the end of the car to unlock the door. "Smith had one game, though, which was all his own. He told me that he had practiced it a good deal so Ilia t he could shoot within a fraction of a second after hearing any ono say, 'Put up your hands.' All tho train men on his run knew that. You know those fellows are great in skylarking, and Smith had warned them never to try to play that joko on him, because, he said, the first liiau who came into his car and took him unawares with that remark would be likely to "die. "Ono day ho was sitting behind hia littlo equaro iron safe checking off his money packages. Ho had tho safe in a cornor of the car facing ono end. Ho al ways sat with his back against the front end of tho car. Tho it ont door was al-. ways barred. When ho raised the lid of tho littlo trunkliko safo tho ineseengor3 used then, ho always put his two big six shooters on tho corners of tho safe in front of tho lid. Any ono approaching him from the rear ond of tho car couldn't bee tho guns, but they wero ready for in stant use. "Well, On this day I'm telling yon nbout, as ho was checking off tho pack ages, he heard tho car door open and somo ono como in. Ho took it for grant ed that tho visitor was tho brakeman whom ha was expecting, and without looking up went on "with Ins work. He checked two or threo more packages and was almost finished when he heard tho sharp command, 'Put up your hands!' "Ho looked up on the instant and saw two men, not in tho least disguised, cov ering him with six shooters. His own hands were behind tho lid of his safe. 'All right, boys,' ho said. 'Don't shoot. They're up.' "They went up, that was truo, but as thoy camo over tho lid of tho safe there was a bix shooter in each one. Both six shooters cracked tho instant thoir muzzles camo above tho safe" lid, and both bullets killed. Tho robbors fired, but they didn't pull until after they had been hit, and their bullets went wild. "It was all done so quickly that ther6 was no outcry or noise, and when tho brakeman went into the car a few min utes afterward ho found Smith washing up tho blood from tho floor. The dead men were on a blankot in a corner. That was how Smith got his reputation fort'o ing 'bad,'" Now i'Ork Sun.

Mrs. Rnnklo took up the points often raised tlmt voting would unfex women; that going to the poll would be a mo&t disagreeable experience, because of the lougli clement to be encountered; that voting women would quarrel with their husbands and tho rent, winch seem al most too absurd to be stated aud yet which are arrayed as valid nrgunienta against the movement Very frequently. In the speaker' band these questions seemed more than puerile aud were quickly nnd conclusively disposed of. As to the issue whother women could fight if war wero proclaimed, tills ap peared to Mrs. Runkle almost too ridic ulorts to consider. By voting woman did not propose to enter tho battlefield any more than she- would think of usurping men'g other arduous duties Following Mrs. Runkle, Mrs. Mont gomery, a graduate from Wellosley, made an address. This sieaker claimed that the time was ripe for suffrage; that theoretically it was right, from a logical and philocophical point itwasiight,and in accordance with the laws of evolution it Was tight. Being Buro tho theory is right and having it tleinonstrated in practice leaves nothing to do or say.
