When the bent of ono's impulse is ti- and, t
resistibly stageward it Is a waste of broke
time and eloquence to warn that per- howe,
son against the heart-breaking uncer- nearl;
tainties of a stage career. It is not a the to
sorted that grief and disaster are inev'- der a
table results of theatrical undertak- the al
ings, but they mast assuredly are the old bi
lot of a large majority of traveling Thu
companies. The following unbmbel was

shows what difficulties are encountered anott
by the peripatetic actor: * pas
Two seasons ago, after a prolonged almo
struggle for existence, a well-known ing a
repertoire company took a blind header the
south in the hope of retrieving their furth
fortunes and playing the season out. It all a
was, however, but a case of out of the to a
frying pan into the fire, as the third hite
week found them at Little Rock practi- ran
cally strapped. Money and credit were band
exhausted and all advertising material have
was used up. In this extremity the ra he
agent was given carte blanche to go ang a
ahead and do what he could to keep the apiet
company moving. Arkansas- was a coml
stranger to him and he proceeded to in- then
terview, in rapid succession, the thea- towt
ter managers, railroad men, hotel pro- dern
prietors, bill posters, attaches of thea- time
ters and, so on, in the faint hope of dig- suici
ging up a mascot. up t
lie finally gave it up and settled on and
the very ancient town of Arkadelphia, able
where to more the company from over
Little Rock. Tihe managementsecured play
enough money to get him there. The unct
next point was to obtain paper to bill left
with. An interview with the litho- and
grapher and general factotum of the not
Capitol theater disclosed the fact that Roc
he had for years been in the habit of relit
saving a dozen or more lithographs of two
every star who played in the theater. lutil
Mr. Agent's persuasive tongue easily dole
won him to give up three lithographs wlt
of each kind, making a total of about pan
three hundred. Gleefully returning to plai
his abode the agent trimmed off all wit
printed matter, both top and bottom, the;
from the lithographs and, with the ny
blessings and prayers of the well-nigh the
'stranded players, proceeded on his way cee
to Arkadelphia. stri
With the assistance of a few stray ext
and apparently lost inhabitants of the nos

After jollying the marshal nl nprois- iof
ing him several "compsr." for his in- tug
fluence and assistance in negotiating th
for the "opera house" they started on pu
foot to seek the owner-a vehicle being an
out of tht" question, as money was now b t
totlhe agent but a memory. Arriving th
at the house the colored attendant at
ushered them into the parlor, where, en
after almost an hour's wait, the lady or
appeared. A three-cornered talk now a
ensued, as the lady would not do I,usi- st
ness directly, but through the marshal. in
The agent talked to the marshal, the n,
marshal to the lady, and so oni back to w
the agent. After an hour's confabh the td
opera house was secured on the follow- p
ing extremely liberal terms-for the ir
owner: Rent, including light, heat and i t
one stage assistant, twenty dollars, I tl

curtain rose. This was exclusive of all ir
licenses, which amounted-s-tate. county hi
and town, including collection fees-to ii
eighteen dollars and twenty-five cents,
also payable before the curtain went ft
up. I,1
A little leg-weary, the agent returned a
to town and dashed into the one printing f
office where, to his further hindrance f
and dismay, he found the editor and his c
entire staff, consisting of one person- t
the devil-bulily engaged in working I1
the hand-press running off the weekly I
edition. The promise of three dollars, I t
payable before the curtain rose, stopped r
the press and the editor, the devil, and i
the agent got their heads together in I
devising a stunning date-line which, ;
after many trials, they succeeded in 1
setting up and running off. It an- t
nounced a grand production of "Our t
Boys," by the same company of twenty
artists playing that week at the Capi- 1
tol theater, Little Rock. A half-column
local followed from the agent's pen,
the editor obligingly setting it up and,
lifting a patent medicine ad. out of
the form on the press, he inserted it in
its stead and ran it in the remainder of
the edition.
His date-lines secured, the agent
hustled to his hotel and, with the aid
of a borrowed bottle of tnucilage, at
tached the dates to the lithographs,
and then, supplying himself with stick
ers, tacks and a small hammer, he pro
ceeded to lithograph the town "out of
sight" Never, creven when larnum ad
vertised the place for Little Rock, had
Arkadelphis been so extensively or
richly billed. The main street loagked
like a rainbow-a rather straight rain
bow-but still abont the only thing it
resembled. Darkness had now set in,
and the very tired agent sought his
~ couch.
