Lure-Jinking en the Stage.
"The art of making leve en the stage
is ene thnt few actors acquire," said an
old Thespian. "A woman naturally
clings te a man with grace, grasping his
arm' with cleverly implied passion or ten
derly nestling en his besom. But n man
doesn't get en te the rcstkctlclsm of the
thing witli the same ease and grace.
Harry Lacv was a dream of a lever,
though, lie had a trick of weaving his
arms about a woman with a sinuous,
seductive movement that brought a little
lump into tbe threat of every woman in
his nudience. He always preferred ap
proaching ixs woman from behind and
then drawing her back into arms that
seemed made for thnt purpose Edwin
Ueff, with the Bostonians, isn't n bad
lever by any means. Funny things,
while en this topic, but you knew when
Bnrrvmore was supporting Langtry they
hated each ether worse than poison. He
declares she would put plus In her bodice
te stick him, and they kept up a regular
quarrel the whole time they were billing
and cooing and embracing in the most
ardent fashion. ' Don't held me se tight,
sir; you Luve evidently never had your
arms around n lady.' Langtry would say
in a whisper. 'If you knew hew
thoroughly distasteful this is te me you
would never accuse me of getting near
you,' he would reply. De people ever
make love en the stage? Net that I knew
of; It is all purely business.
