" Stood on Speaker's Desk In California and was Honored by Governor Gage Wanted to See Native Boys Dive for Coin.' Claire Few Is a little girl ten years of age. More than half of her life has been spent on the professional stage. At the present time she Is filling an engagement at the Orpheum and nightly delighting those who see her act. The little actress Is very much like other little girls of her age. Except that she does not hang her head and lisp "yes sir and "no sir" to questions. She Is so very much like them in fact thnt If one did not know it would never be suspected that she has had six years stage experience and travel over a large portion of the world. On the stage the lady is the embodiment of grace and life. Her pretty face, a pair of twinkling feet, and a voice that pleases everybody are what makes the little one so good to took upon and listen to. Yesterday afternoon she was asked for a little talk about herself. From her it was learned that she first appeared on the stage at the Bush Street theater Jn San Francisco with E. J. Holden in "The Queen of the Plains." -,Ih thn.t piece she had quite a lot of talking X.o do and did it so well that she immediately made friends for herself. Soon afterwards she appeared at the Tivoli Opera House in "Alladin,: and then in "Uncle Tom's Cabin" as Little Eva. Soon after this engagement, which was a very successful one, she appoared with Ed Stevens in the opera or "Wang." and plaved with his com pany every night for weeks, niaklnp. one of the greatest successes ever made by a child of her years. Aftor "Wane" she took a considerable part in "Shamus O'Brien. In which Dennis O'Sulllvan made such a success in San Francisco after his tour abroad. After with "The Brownies in Fairyland" the child traveled all over the western states. Then, she played with Nance O'Nell in "True to life" and East Lynne." and later with the Bostonians In "Rip Van Winkle." "Onco, while we were in sala little Claire, "Senator Dan Burns took me to see the Capitol building and we went in where all the men were sitting around and he Intro duce" me to a lot of the, men. Then someone asked me if I would sing for them, and I said yes, and so they put me on top of a big desk and they all stopped talking and I sang. Then they made me sing again, and when I was through Governor Gage gave me a big ph?ce of paper which said that 1 was the only lit tie girl who had sung from the top of the speaker's desk in the senate. l like Honolulu and am glad w came here.

Call and see the Goods everything was beautiful, 1 was anxious to come if I could have all the bananas I wanted to eat Well, we started for here in the Zealandia. Mamma and I had a very nice time on the boat, as everybody treated us so nicely, especially little Tommy, the purser. One afternoon we piayeu games and I won a nice little spoon as a prize. When we were near Honolulu it was quite dark and we were afraid we would have to stay on board all night, and were happy when the doctor said we could go ashore v.t once. It was a very funny sight to see all the little native boys around the wharf and I was sorry it was not day, so as to see them dive into the water after coins. The next morning I was up bright and early to sep what Honolulu looked like. The first thing I saw was a pretty garden and a lot of Chinese children playing on the grass. Afterward we went for a walk and saw native women selling leis. I thought it looked pretty. I have been to Waikiki beach often and want to go to the Pali before I go home. Everyone is so kind to us here that we will be sorry to leave. One of the strangest things I ever saw was the Mormon luau. ail of the native women wearing those funny dresses that we call Mother Hubbard wrappers, and enjoying the feast I love, to hear the natives sing: they have such sweet voices, and before I leave Honolulu I am going to learn some of their songs. This Is the prettiest place I have ever seen." Claire is not certain yet whether there is a Santa Claus or not. She expects Christmas presents like all little girls do about this time of year, but. has her eye set on the price of a bicycle' that one of the clothing houses in town is offercing tora prize to the "holder .of the most purchase tickets. She has over a hundred and hopes for more by the time ie prize is won. She says she likes dolls but would rather have a bike. On Saturday afternoon, after the matinee at the Orpheum, Claire held a reception and received a great number of the little boys and 'girls who had seen her play. She savs that the'-hardest work is learning her songs, as's'oraetimes the -words get twisted.-but? she liVes to sing, and act, as that is fun. and the people always clap their hands.
