[ho Thrilling Adventures of an Ambitiou,
Anateur Actor and Playwright.
From the Boston Post,
Gallagler is satisfied. The facts are
hose: Gallagher was the President of
dramatic clib and wrote a piece for
iemll. It called for nine persons, and
verylbody ill the cast except Gallaghel
onlsidered that he or she had the
Vorst part, tid that it, was made so on:
irpose. At first they didn't proposc
o play, but. finally decided to do so,
mdll concocted a plan to punish Gal
ughier. lie played the hero, and ill
lie first act said farewell to his moth
r atnd went oi' to sea, and wtell shc
>arted wvith him she contrived tc
vrench his head and scratch his nosc
Im at pinl fixed inl the Shoulder of bick
Iress for tihat purpose. Th'tt eased
ter mind and disturbed his. But htc
ublnitted. In the next act lie appear.
c1 oil shipboard, and had to be knock
(I down by the cruel captain, who lilt
lim so eirilestly with a belaying-pill
hat it nearly killed him. And then
vlhion he headed the mtintinv and cried
0 the mutineers, "Follow me I" some.
iody opened ai I rap tnld he ignlolilni.
tisly fell through it. and got terribly
;nyed by the audience. lie was awful
iad, but dletermineied to conquer in
pite of the disaster. and so camc1 up
udl went on with the play.
in lie third act he was to have a ter
ible cotbat with lie villain ofthe play,
nd whip him. Ir. 1lencoop Smytlh
ilaved the part. Ic was satistied1 that
e had the worst part. inl the piece and
hat (Gallaghier ilade it so to spite hi)n.
iillagher, as lie cliiched him, cried:
'Villain, I'll beat your lifi' out inl two
ecoids." But lie didn't. The villain
vas the strongest man, aid the way
ic lathered Gallagher abont tie stage
as awful. Vhen it calme to that
oint wherc the villain was to cry,
'Let 3m1 up ! 1'in crushed !" he had
a allagler jamied under the table, and
t'as beating hin with a chair-leg-, and
'f course his speecht and Ga'lgher's
eply, "'1 will not spare your life!"
oitnded absurd. Before the villain
onsented to be overcome, he had got
he atudience to shricking witi laugh
r, and had heaten (allagher black
nd blue all over. (lallagher went
omlte terribly eiiwaged. and the rest of
lIe ceoillalny were delighted.
The piece was to be played the next

ect in a line wth the other inter
