Stage Vanity.
San Francisco IngloHule.
Mr. Bankin tells a story on him
self which is too good not to be
peated. They were giving a great
spectacle in Chicago. It was the iirst
night. Every effort had been maiie
tojnake the production elaborate in
eviry detait. A splendid ballet head
ed-by competent principals was just
reiidy to spring upon the boards.
$ffe scenery had been prepared for
weeks, and a company of unusual
strength had been engaged. Sir.
liankin was especially relied on. A
handsome dress had "been made for
liim, and lie was instructed to make
as much as possible of hiB entrance.
He did so.
He was received with considerable
applause, and following the usage in
such cases, bowed. Then the applause
grew more decided, and he bowed
again. "It is a handsonu! dress,"
thought liankin. Then liio applause
crew louder stili. "What a favorite
1 must be, to be sure," thought he,
appalled by the clam or of a thou
sand throats, the waving of handker
chiefs and innumerable other denir
onstrations, "The dress must be
unusually handsome. I'll take an
other look at it when I get off. The
embarrassed actor bowed still lower.
Then the noise grew deafening. He
looked up in astonishment. Horror,
dismay and mortification! They
were cheering Gen. Philip II. Sheridan!
Struggle with a Bad Habit.
New Vbrk Jitter.
No one whoever saw or heard Chnun
csy M. Depew, of New York, with bis
perennial flow of wit and apparently
"iflMhoustible supbly of good spirits,
would imagine that he was engaged
in a sturdy battle against a habit
which threatened to injure his health.
Yet there is his own inviolate word
for it that such is the case. He says:
"I have smoked ever since I was
twenty, but of late years the habit
has grown upon me, until I averaged
about twenty cigars day. I noticed
th'at 1 was nervous anil low spirited
and my excellent digestion was going
back on me, but 1 called it malaria
for a while, and then talked about
nervous prostration and brain troub
le, but I knew in my inner concious
ness that the real dilliculty was nico
tine. First I tried to cut down the
number of cigars and then to smoke
milder sorts, but while I would smoke
l«s one day I'd drop the next back
into my old habits, till finally mat
t«ft»| rew so bail I was forced to look
them straight in the face and decide
whether I was going to permit any
habit of the sort to wreck my health,
impair my usefulness and destroy my
life. Of course, I ilecided I would n't,
and, as I couldn't control the habit,
*1 simply abandoned it. lint at times,
irhen I sit after dinner in a room tilled
itli tho smok of good ciuars. the old
longing comes upon me almost irre
sistibly and 1 have my battle to fight
over again."

there are just two things in
this world that I don't know aVout,
and you have just asked nie about
one of them. I don't know why there
is {rouble and sorrow and toil and
poverty and sickness and death in
this beautiful world. I used to know
when I was much younger, but I find
that as I grow older I don't know a
great deal more than I used to know.
I don't know why tho best people
seem to have all the sulfei-ing and the
great sinners have all the fun. I don't
know why innocent men sutler for the
wickedness of guilty men. I don't know
why the man who cast the faulty col

crushed when the mills went down. I
Can't see why my neck should be
broken in a railway accident because
a train dispatcher sends out a wrong
order or a signalman jjoes to sleep. I
don't see why my neighbor should
be cursed with ill health and suffering
just liec.'iuse bis grandfather

rollicking, hard-drinking old profli

neuralgia just when I want to feel at

Of tho Burlington Si Northern, was cloaetsd
with President Perkins, of the Burlington

with the notice. It was the result of a
meeting of tho engineers and firemen held
at La Crosse. The notice was substanti
ally that if tho Burlington & Northern did
not cease interchanging trnflic with the
Burlington Quincy before 7 p. m. Mon

strike in a body. Vice President Harris
refused to be interviewed regarding the

At arousing meeting ot the locomotive
engineers of the North west,.held recently at
the hall, Sixth aud ,lacksou streets, which
was attended by about ttfiG members of the
Brotherhood of Locomotive Hnginecrs, the
above telegram was ordered to be sent to
Grand Chief Engineer Arthur and Grand
Master Sargent by a unanimous vote. It
was also unanimously voted to send $1,

be doneby telegraph The engineers pres
ent who are tho leading men of the Brother
hood in the Northwest,, were inoreemphat
ic in their, .denunciation of tho
Burlington and its oflicials, and
in their determination to stick by the en
gineers who are out. It'whs'stated fh the
meeting that should any road running be*
tweeh St. Paul and Chicago attempt to
carry any Quincy cars or- accept Quincy
tickets, a strike on that rood wauld prob
ably be. ordered and carried otit immedi
ately. The assertion made that 2f0 ngi
ncers had cope from Heading to work as
scabs ou the Quincy was a tucre phantasy
on the part ot the Quincy oflicials. th»»y be
ing in fact but twenty-live in number." As
an instance of the unuoyance the ••nglneers
were causing tho Quincy road, it is said
that many engineers who" rat into Chica
go had applied for portions on
the Quincy been examined.aud uccrpted,
and thon gone back to tltcir own train*,
leaving the road in the lurch. The engi

some of them voluntarily offering sums of
from $20 to $1,000 if needed. Tin* Broth

pay an assessment of $10 per capital with
in twenty-four hours after it was ordered.
In addition tho Brotherhood has-about
$1,000,000 surplus already on hand,
which will be used if nceessary. Accord

^.Trcatpe assistant editor, of the Pioneer,
fib6h the thaiii conduct o'f 'the journal fell
upoji him, at a period very critical to Dem
ocratic journalists. In the tall of 1805,
tho PJonwr going into tlio hands of
KephblicitnA1 lie withdrew from the
pap^r.. ami took .a position ou the Daily
Press as assistant editor.atida few months
later the Pioneer again going into the
hands of the Democracy, he' was installed
iis the leading ami responsible editor, nt
vhicli piost he remained clglit Or ten years.
At the consolidation of'Tho Haily Pioneer
with the Daily Press, Mr. l'iihercontinued
as assistant editor for.sometime,when ow
ing to continuous toll and his advancing
yeam ho was placed in charge o! the-edl
torial, department pi the Northwestern
Newspaper I'liiou, where he did valuable
-Service* Tip to within -is' liours of his death.
Tlio Pioiieor- Press says ot him: Death
sums .up the results -of life, and Ue.ltour is
that'in which the impress a finished cureor
has left tipoti its timo is mo'st surely and
fltfatly reflected in the sentiment of tho
livink. The truth to vvhich so many so*
tiered'faces and snddejied hearts bear wit
ness to-day, that the death of Louis
K. Fisher :-vomm to hundreds of- per
sons in the state where he lived, with all
the sliarp sting of a personal bereavement,
tells inoro than the most studied eulo! ium
could convey of his blumeloHS life, lovable
.nature.and noble character. The people
auioiig whom h'o lived for more than halt
of a long life believed in him, honored him,
loved hiuu Those, who knew him most, in*
timaiti-iy honored him most and loved him
hc&t.: Hedit'd without an enemy. Many
a pulpy, colorless and negative char
acter has
that distinction. But while
the sweetneb*
.n-nd transparent sincerity of
his nature- forbado enmities, ita virile
stiriigth, spot I»'hk integrity atul staunch
loyalty gained him such devoted friend
ship as few men enjoy, because few men
deserve it. A'-d he gave more than ho re
ceived. In many a lih» that touched his
nearly, -iiin death will leave a blank that
time .may obliterate, but no lesser friend*
ship can ever till.
His was no brilliant or conspicuous ca
reer. Character not position, was the
measure of his influence upon men and up
on his time. Never the owner of a news'
paper, his keen professional instinct and
rare judgment made him a powerful factor
iu the conduct of those upon which lie was
employed. Always a private citizen,
his advice was sought and his crit
icism feared by those high in offi
cial placp and strong.iu party author
ity. Uelatively a poor man, all his life,
his native sa'gnf-ity and unquestioned in
tegrity made him the repository ot the so
crets and the trusted counselor of men of
wealth and commercial power, lie did the
work li*«* gave him with simple honesty
and unlalt«'ring fidelity to his own high
standard of honor aud truth. It was
woithy work, well done. But. the nian was
hotter than his work, aud tho life he lived
was worth more than anything he did.
On Saturday,the last day he was seen in
tho little society of fco-workers to whom
his loss comes like the intrusion of death
into the family circle oi each, racked with
lain and depressed with illness, he turned
to a friend with a half-humorous, half-se
rious.t'C|etilioti of the world-old question,
is life really worth living? His own life an*
swerstheqtu'stiou. Forhimand foi any one

worth all.it costs, l.t is worth all the long
and lingering disillusion of li\ ing- inurh

ing—-to loa von memory so fragrant of good
deeds done ami noble impulses obeyed so
rich in high example for young and old so

with what purports to be a confirmation
of the report hy Miss Fellows herself in an

that it be forwarded it possible by pony

not expect to hear from his daughter soon.
Mr. Fellows said the whole tone of the re

contradicted by his knowledgeofhisdaugh
ter's character and the fact that tho va
rious reports were inconsistent with each
other, aud facts in his k'nowledgo confirm
ed his first conclusion that the story was
a canard. He had reason to believo that
his daughter was preparing to bo mar
ried, but not to an Indian. She had
written home regularly and letters had
been received from her since the present
publication, but they contained nothing at

Youth's Companion.
How it feels to find one's self in the
jaws of a panther is that kind of
knowledge which most persons are
well content to acquire at second
hand. Probably all men would not
have the same sensations, but this ia
the account which Colonel Ban-as
gives of such an experience. He was
a born sportsman and of course coulil
enjoy many things which to ordinary
persons would seem anything but
"The panther came for me with
lightning bounds. I could see nothing
owing to its tremendous speed except
a sluidowy looking form with two
large, bright round eyes fixed upon me
with an unmeaning stare as it literal,
ly Hew toward me.
Such was the vision of a moment!
My presence of mind did not* desert
me. 1 raised my gun and fired with
all the care I could at such '.short no
tlco. But I missed, ailff tlie palither
landed, light as a feather, with ita
arms round my shoulders.
Thus we stood for a few seconds,
and Idistinctly felt the animal smiling
for my throat. Mechanically turn*
ed my head so as to keep the thick,
wadded curtain of my helmet-cover
in front of the creature's muzzle but
still I could hear and feel plainly tim
rapid yet cautious efforts it was mak
ing lo find an opening, so as to teav
open the jugular vein.
I was helpless, and so stood perfect
ly still, well knowing that Sandford
would libsrnte me if possible. At the
first onslaught w« were so placcd
that ho ccttld have hit the panther
only by firing through me which would
have been injudicious, at least.
As may easily be supposed, the
animal did not spend much time in
investigating tho nature of a wadded
hat-cover, and before my friend could
take aim withoutjeopardizingmyowu
life tlio beast pounced on my left el
bow, taking a piece out, and buried
its long, sharp fangs in the joint till
they met.
At the same time I was hurled to
the earth with .such force that I knew
not how I got there nor what became
of my gun. Still, throughout, I main
tained a clear impression of what waa
going 011.
1 knew that I was lying on tho
gi:mnd with the panther on top ot
me. and CQUld leel my elbow joint
wabbling in ami-, .out as the brute
ground its jaws, with a movement
imperceptible to the bystanders, but
which fell to me as though "-as be
ing violently shaken all over.
Now I listened anxiously for the re
port of SamUord's shot which I knew
would be heard immediately, and
carefully refrained from making tho
slightest, sound or movement, lest hia
aim should bo disturbed thereby.
In a few seconds the loud, welcome
detonation, which, Irom its prox
imity almost deafened me, struck up
on my ear.
I sat up. I was free tho panther
1 looked round and founi that I
was some distance from the place
where I had fallen, so the beast must
have dragged me some little way.
Sandford, as soon as he got the
chance, had placed the muz/.le of hia

which had caused it to dart back

writes aNew England minister, "ashort
time before I came to Boston. The
man had just entered upon his profes

phico of settlement. The young lady,

who knew tho ways of society, hocl
