Th Way Somo of the Stage Feats Art Accomplished. When a champion ritle shot fires blindfolded at a wedding ring or a penny held between his wife' thumb and l'.nger or seated back to her shoots, by means of a mirror, at an apple upon her head or on a fork hold in her teeth, the danger of using a b illet is obvious. Xone, of coutfc, is needed. The explo sion is enough. The apple is al ready prepared, having been cut into pieces and stuck together with an adhesive substance, and a thread with a knot at the end, pulled through it from the "wings," so that it flics to bits when the gun is fired, iß "how it is done." Generally the more dangerous a feat appears the more carefully is all danger guarded asuinat. In the "William Tell" act 'the thread is often tied to the assistant's -foot When, again, the ash is shot off a cigar which the assistant is smok ing a piece of wire is pushed by his tongue through a hollow passage in tho cigar, thus thriving off the ash at tho moment of firing. A faorito but simple trick is the shooting from some distance at an orange held in a lady's hand. Great applause is invariably forthcoming when tho bullet drops out on her cutting open the fruit. It is insert ed by hand earlior in the evening. Another popular trick is that of snuffing out lighted candles. Half a dozen aro placed in front of a screen,, in which ns many small holes are lorcd, one against each candle wick. At the moment of firing a confederate behind tho Forcen sharply b'owv out each can dle with a pair cT bellows. In most instrix v-here a ball or other object ba to be broken on tv living person's head blank car tridge is used and the effect pro duced by other means. A special wig with a spring concealed in it worked by a wire under the clothes is generally used, the confederate manipulating the spring simulta neously whh the firing of the rifle. As thn ball is .of extremely thin glass, a mere touch suffices to shat ter it. In these exhibitions some of the rifle "experts" invite gentleman from the audience to testify that tho weapon is indeed loaded. The cartridge shown looks very well, but it is a shell of thin wax blackened to resemble a leaden bullet. It would not hurt a flv. London Tit-Bits.

Billy's door slamed and he was given time to again seek his couch before one of his friends knocked and asked him if he had a time-table of road handy. Thus the night wore away. St. Louis was reached about breakfast time, and the two friends awaited Bill and bride on the depot platform outside. They were the last nassencrers to leave the train, and they bravely attempted to appear at ease, even gay, when the two friends stepped up to them and asked them if they had "rested well."
