to me than a bad egg-though the

Baals and greasy altars. They have of
their uses and so long, as they be th
confined to their own sphere they
stand for good. For you will admit
the truth of this trite saying: 'There

It was several hours from afternoon,
if the man got up hurriedly and be
gan looking around for his hat.
Out in the park by the fountain he
drew' forth again that thin, typewrit

cautious. Had he published it, she
would have stood unconfessed. For
a moment he thought of those letters

that any careless eye might read with
one smile for the gusa and the spell

He alone could read the delicious
meaning so cunningly hidden between
those rigid lines.
Good heavens, how could he wait
until the afternoon?
And then it occurred to him that he
need not wait.

Actresses and Race Horses. Ic
Following the example of Mrs. Lang- ci
try, who is by no means unknown in u
France, Parisian actresses are going b:
in strong for owning race horses. h
Most enterprising of all the French o
ladies in this direction is Mme. Ricot- p
ti, a famous beauty of the opera, one c
of whose extensive stud this year car- t,
ried off the Grand Prix at Auteuil, a
which is worth $20,000. Mine. Ricotti
started her racing stable in a modest
way in 1897, and has won since many
races, among them the Grand Steeple n
of Nice and the Grand Steeple of g
Paris. It was not so long ago that
the Grand Prix was won by another F
stage favorite, Mme. Louise Mascey
of the Comedie Francaise. t
Dan Sully in New Play.
Daniel Sully will produce a new
rural play early next season, entitled
"The Old Mill Stream," by Fitzgerad
Murphy. The play's characters are
drawn from real life and the scenes
are laid at Mink Hollow, Ulster coun
B ty, in the Catskills, where Mr. Sully's
it n l
e farm is located and where the author
spent the summer.
Femininity to the Fore.
th The first event of the season in
on- New York will be a woman's exposl
of tion, given under the auspices of the
lo Professional Woman's league, in Octo
san er, at Madison Square Garden. This
.a show, in which $250,000 will be In
Sre vested and 8,000 of the gentler sex em
ing ployed, is to be a great fair of goods

were within reach of "The Bandits."
Frank Parker made the production at
the London Hippodrome, and one of
the features is a huge tank 130 feet
above the stage, holding 14,000 gal
lons of water. During one of the ex
citing scenes this water is dashed
upon the stage, washing away a
bridge weighing five tons, a four-in
hand coach with sixteen persons in or
on it, and a band of brigands. The
play calls for forty horses, two
coaches, 400 persons, four scenes. 120
tons of scenery and 128,000 galls of
water a day.
