As a delineator of the traditional Yankee character Mathias Currier Kimball, more widely known as Yan kee Glunn. long stood without a rival Away back in the early forties, when he was n mere lad. » little incident with Junius Brutus .Booth, the elder, started him in his career. Kimball was only seventeen years old at the time and was at work as an usher in the Lowell museum Booth, who was then in the zenith of his power and fame, was billed there for three nights The play was "Richatd 111 " Kimball had thoroughly studied the play and was considered a young man of prom ising dramatic ability On the open ing night the actor who took the part of Lord Norfolk failed to show up Booth was in despair At last some one suggested that young Kimball knew the lines of that part, and hP was cast for it by Booth. Of the event Kimball himself said "When I went on the stage. I was badly rattled. Booth was imperious and stern, which only complicated mat ters. However, I got along all right until we came to the battle of Bos wortb Field. In my hurry I had tak en the wrong place on the stage, when Booth hissed out in a whisper, "Get into your place.' Then wheeling around he pronounced these words lr thrilling tones: 'What thinkest tb©;« now, noble Norfolk?' 'That we shall conquer, my lord,' was my reply, 'but on my tent this morning early was this paper found.' Booth .was mark ing out the plan of battle on the sand When I had finished the lines, he drew his sword and with terrific force struck the paper from my hands, say ing, 'A weak invention of the enemy!' "I was thoroughly frightened at his fearful expression and dodged back, nearly falling to the floor. Booth then repeated the words: " 'What thinkest thou. Norfolk, if the pardon was offered?' "By this time I was completely rat tled and forgot my lines. Booth stood glaring at me like a tiger. The audi ence were holding their breath for the next turn of affairs. Suddenly I real ized that something must be done. My nerve returned, and I think it must have been the devil that prompted me to balance myself on one foot an l drawl out with Yankee twang: " 'Well. I don't know, Mr. Booth. It may work!' "Instantly the whole house was In an uproar. As shout after shout of laugh ter went up the black cloud on Booth's brow relaxed, and, wheeling on his heel, he V?ft the stage, shaking his sides with merriment. After the play was over he came to me and, placing his hand on my shoulder, said in fa therly tones. 'Young man. you never played tragedy before, did you?' With out waiting for a reply he continued: 'Take my advice and never attempt it again. You are a natural comedian. Take a Yankee character and become identified with it, and fame and for tune will be yours.' And I followed his advice." Without It the Heat cf the Sun Would Be Unbearable. The usefulness of dust is proclaimed by science despite all the housewives :of all the ages. Dust is part of the ma -1 chinery that produces cloud and rain. It is also a protection from the sun. Without it the sun's rays would be un bearable. The reason that sunburn Is more easily acquired on the mountains , than in the lowlands is said to be prob ' ably because of the comparatively dustless air of the mountainous re ! gions. | A dustless atmosphere during rain j would mean a much greater degree of discomfort than rain ever brings, i Trees and buildings would be dripping with moisture, our clothing and the exposed parts of our bodies would be constantly wet, umbrellas would be classed as useless curios, and Instead !of trying to conquer the dust In the 1 house we should have to face a much I greater enemy in wet floors and drip ! ping walls. In every drop of rain and j in every particle of cloud there is a j particle of dust A sample of air may , be taken anywhere and the number of j its dust particles accurately determin- I cd. Dust, too. produces the glorious ; sunset effects in the evening sky, thus \ causing the faint obscurity we call ! twilight Twilight is always a reflected glory. The light comes from the sun, which i has in the meanwhile sunk below , the horizon. The reflector is an upper layer or dust Were the air perfectly dustless there would be no twilight. Darkness would immediately follow the sunset.«— Exchange. Washington India's Filmy Muslin.

AT THETHFATER j That ' The Cow-Puncher" by Hal : - Reid. to be seen at Wenatchee theater ion Tuesday, April 7, contains the i possibilities of a truly great play , seems to be an indisputable face, but | whether these possibilities could not j have been better expressed by a sim i pier method of treatment is a de ' batable question.
