BOOTH'S DRAWING POWERS.
The Famous Tragedian Was a Star
Money Maker.
A retired theater manager said the
other day: "It is not generally known
that Edwin Booth received 50 per cent
of the gross receipts of his perform
ances while under the management of
Messrs. Brooks & Dixon. There never
was a star on the stage who could
draw the money that Booth could to a
theater. There were p) spasms about
his business. It was as steady as Gi
braltar. We could bank on it. Out of
their half of the receipts Brooks &
Dixon paid the rent for theaters, paid
the salaries of the company, the rail
road and hotel bills and the advertis
ing throughout the country and made
big profits, which they shared with
IIorace McVicker, to whom Booth in
trusted his affairs at the start and who
afterward associated himself with
Brooks & Dixon.
"Booth's agreement. with Henry E.
Abbey was this: After all expenses of
every description were paid Booth got
S5 per cent and Abbey 15. Booth lost
a week in Philadelphia owing to the
death of his wife. The company was
put in there without him, and we had
to indemnify the local manager. Our
loss that week was $4,000. Deducting
that, Abbey's profits on the season were
$30,000. I do not know any star, save
booth, who ever commanded 50 per
cent of the gross receipts."-New York
Press.
Where Blood Tells.
It was in one of the farming districts
of New England. The young folks had
banded themselves together for month
ly jollifications during the winter and
were about to celebrate the last dance
of the season as well as a couple of
engagements which had resulted from
the assemblies. Ben Hawkins, the lo
cal Paganini, and his Stradivarius had
been engaged to lead them through the
mazes of the country dance, and all
were looking forward to the "time of
their life."
But death inconsiderately claimed
Mrs. Hawkins for his own on the after
noon of the eventful party. The young
people gathered as arranged, but be
moaned the absence of Old Ben, and
games were being substituted for the
dancing when, lo, Hawkins and his fid
dle appeared on the scene.
Great astonishment and many ques
tions greeted the old man, but he calm
ly slipped his fiddle out of its green
bag and as lie meditatively rubbed the
rosin on the bow said:
"Waal, yes: Maria's gone; died this
afternoon. But I reckon 'tain't no sin
for me jplay for you tonight, seem'
she wa' no blood relation."-Phila
delphia Ledger.
Yet He Loved the Sea.
It is said that Bryan Waller Procter,
known as Barry Cornwall, who wrote
the well known poem
I'm on the sea! I'm on the sea!
I am where I would ever be!
was the very worst of sailors. When
we read that he was so seasick that he
could scarcey bear the sound of a hu
man voice it becomes apparent that his
wife's conduct during his affiiction
could scarcely have been reassuring.
As he lay on the deck of a- channel
bot, covered with shawls and a tar
paulin, she had the pleasing habit of
humming a strain of his jovial sea
song. The poet who loved the sea, but
loved it best at a distance, had very lit
te life just then, but what force he had
was used in the entreaty:
"Don't, my dear! Oh, don't!"
Yet no doubt he loved the sea.
A Rude Awakening.
The Centerview (Mo.) Record tells of
a young man who had been writing a
girl in Minneapolis for three years, In
tending some day to ask her to marry
him. The other day he received a let
ter and a picture from her. The letter
announced that she had been married
two years, and the picture was of her
baby. "My husband and I have en
joyed your letters very much," she
wrote,. "but I guess you'd better stop
writing now, as I have to spend all my
time caring for the baby." The Record
says the words the young man used
after reading the letter would shock a
field of oats.
Snakes.
Mr. Rolker in McClure's robs us of
some misconceptions as to snakes.
When a snake is decapitated it Is dead.
The tail will remain sensitive for some
ours without reference to sundown.
The rattlesnake doe's not suicide by bit
ing itself. No snake is susceptible to
the poison of its own kind. That- the
black snake will swallow its young In
time of danger is true, and they are
then digest3d, making the mother a
annibal of the worst sort.

Tess-Old Mr. Rodley was taken
slightly ill yesterday and his young
wife sent for Dr. Killiam at once.

"Two women shall be grinding at the
mill." In the east the day's supply of
meal is ground each morning by two
women, who sit opposite each other on
large, clean cloth, with the small
llstones between them. They push
the upper stone around and around by
means of a stick standing upright in a
hole in one side, both women holding
it. They usually sing as they grind.

HEROIC SELF SACRIFICE.
Courage With Which a Young Naval
Officer Greeted Death.
"Speaking of heroism," said a navy
officer at his club a few evenings ago,
"it is rare that such an example is seen
as that of Hynson, who was a passed
midshipman at Vera Cruz in 1S46. It
was really more than a bit of heroism;
it was fortitude, passive courage, that
confronted a peculiar danger, a self
sacrifice, that was most conspicuous.
"Our fleet was off the harbor on
blockade duty when one day a Spanish
merchant vessel managed to slip in
without being discovered. Ilynson con
ceived the idea of capturing the vessel
by a night attack, and he succeeded In
doing so. But as he could not take the
vessel out of harbor, for the reason
that she was under the close range
of the enemy's guns, Hynson set fire
to the vessel. In doing so he burned
both his arms so bidly that he carried
them in slings for several days. While
In this disabled condition a terrific
squall came up and played havoc with
several of our little vessels, and the one
on which Hynson was serving was cap
sized. Hynson and one of the other of
ficers managed to get hold of a floating
'spar, but as it was not sufficient to
keep them both afloat Ilynson let go
his hold and in a few moments sank to
his death."-New York Tribune.
Weight of a Growing Child.
The weight of a growing child is the
most important index to its general
health. The standard of weight for
growing children, that usually given
by authorities in the matter, is that at
five years of age a child should weigh
about as many pounds as it is inches
high. As a rule, this will not be much.
over or under forty pounds. Children
who come of large parents should
weigh something more than that. The
rate of increase should be about two
pounds for every inch of growth, with
a tendency for the weight to exceed
this standard proportionately rather
than to fall below it. When a child is
rather heavier in proportion to its
height than this standard it is a sign
of good health. If the child Is growing
rapidly it should not be allowed to fall
much below it without being made to
rest more than has been the custom be
fore. A deficiency of weight in propor
tion to height Is always an unfavorable
sign. Any interruption in the progress
of increase of weight, especially dur
ing the continuance of growth, must
be a danger signal that should not be
neglected by those interested in the pa
tient.
Why Hoe Only Ate the Yolks.
An American woman traveling in
England stopped one day at a little
country house. Chatting with the vis
itor, the woman of the house told of
her difficulty in getting along and of an
experience she had had with a boarder.
"The first morning this man stopped
here," she said, "he began to eat boiled
eggs very greedily. Egg after egg he
ate-three, four, five, six-and It 'was
only the yolk of them that he swal
lowed; the white he didn't bother with
at all.
"When he dug his spoon into the sev
enth egg my temper got the better of
me, and I said in a severe tone:.
"'Don't you ever eat the white of the
egg, sir?'
"'Surely not, my woman,' he an
swered. 'The yolk is the bird; the white
is the feathers. Would you have me
make a bolster of myself?' "
Where It Always Rains.
There is a group of islands to the
south of New Zealand called the Sis
ters, or Seven Sisters, which are re
puted to be subjected to a practically'
constant rainfall. The same may be
said of the islands and mainland of TI
erra del Fuego, save for the differ
ence that the rain often takes the form
of sleet and snow. On a line running
round the world from 4 degrees to 8 or
9 degrees there are patches: over which
rain seldom ceases to fall. This Is
called the "zone of constant precipita
tion," but at the same time there are
several localities along with it with
very little rainfall.
Lightning Pranks.
"The most beautiful display of light
ning or atmospheric electric currents
which it was my good fortune to wit
ness," says a resident of Quebec, "was
out on the Beauport flats,.near Quebec,
when two electrically laden clouds, as
though two trees, their heads toward
each other and their longer branches
interwoven, kept on for more than ten
minutes, interchanging horizontal flash
es of beautifully colored fire, not one
of which ever reached the earth, while
occasionally a flash would shoot up
ward as if toward some cloud In that
direction."
An Experiment.
"You see," said Corntossel, "a phre

"So you sent him to college?"
"Yes. Now we're waiting to see
whether his head Is goin' to turn out to
be a congerial residence fur brains or
es' a garden fur football hair.

Indigestion Causes
Catarrh of the
Stomach. -
For many years it has been supposed that
Catarrh of the Stomach caused Indigestion
d dyspepsia, but the truth is exactly the
opposite. Indigestion causes catarrh. Re
peated attacks of indigestion inflames the
mucous membranes lining the stomach and
exposes the nerves of the stomach, thus caus
ing the glands to secrete mucin instead of
the juices of natural digestion. This is
called Catarrh of the Stomach.
