RUIN THE PICTURES
PEOPLE WHO “BUTT TN” WHE> CAMERA IS WORKING. Scenes Carefully Arranged by Mov ing Picture Artists Are Dis turbed and Rendered Useless. “Our work is sometimes sc: iou.sk interfered with by the buttinskis. an then again there are times when thei: slamming in helps us,” sal I the man ager of a moving picture •ern. w!-< himself frames up the incid-nt supervises the taking of the pictures “It Is impossible to guard against th< folks with the butting-in i habit, for when they see anything unusual coni ing off on the street or in any pub!:' place their natural busybody instinct takes bold of them, and they re bound _ .to nudge up and take a hand in tha f proceedings. “Over In Trenton a few weeks age I fixed up a horsewhipping scene. The first part of the set was easy enough to get. It was a scene in a restaurant, in which a pretty girl, seated at a table a little distance away from another table at which a frolic some man with a homely wife is din ing, falls to making goo-goo eyes at the man. “The second scene, In which I ar ranged to have the horsewhipping take place, took place outside the restau rant. We’d got police permission to take the pictures, and I had two or three men stationed in front of the restaurant to keep tire crowd back while the phony horsewhipping was in progress. ■ “Wheu everything was ail set and the machine was snaDoinz awav at the homely wife laying the lash across the face and shoulders of the flirta tious girl—the lash looked like ratian, but it was a phony, and didn’t hurt at all—our troubles began. "First a big vannigan of a man •lammed In and grabbed my homely woman by her lash-wielding arm, bawling that he didn't believe in see ing no woman stinging another wom an like that, and that queered one set • of fllma. The machine had to be stopped while the big buttinski was being informed that the thing was only a tableau, and that he didn't belong to the picture. "He took the gibes of the crowd sour ly, at that, and looked to be in so much of a mind to kick our gear to pieces that I had to get a cop to walk him down the street "When we got all set again and the horsewhipping of the flirtatious girl was once more going on a scrawny hatchet-faced woman, who had just Joined the outer circle of the crowd, and who wasn’t up to what was com ing off, rushed into the scene with a shriek, grabbed my two acting women by ftie hair, and started in to rough house them both for their ‘indecency in fighting on the street,’ as she yelled at them. The machine had to be stopped again. "The incident as f Ira.i framed It up didn’t call for anything like that. I had it arranged that after the whip ping had proceeded for a space the guilty husband of the homely wife was to rush in and attempt to sep arate the cwo women, when his wife was to turn on him with the lash, caus ing him to skiddoo down the street. The girl with the goo-goo eyes was tc seize the whip from the other wom an's hands and start in to get hunk for the cutting she’d received, the scene ending up that way." DETHRONING OF ALCOHOL. Being Brought About by the Mod ern Spirit of Scientific Research. Another potent factor in the dethron ing of alcohol haa been the spirit oi Bcientia.' research of recent years, says an Open Letter, in Century. In the gr£at laboratories scientists have been carefully studying the effects of alco holic liquors upon the various organs of the body, and, although they differ in their conclusions upon some points, the result is that those physicians who lire, most closely followed these inv -stiga tions have, almost or entirely, abjured alcoholics as a necessary part of their therapeutic outfit. These elaborate studies of alcohol have convinced main that the nourishing and strengthening properties formerly (scribed to alcohol ics existed only in the. imagination, and belong to the errors of an age which had no facilities for accurate observation. The food qualities of the grains and fruits, it is now believed by many au thorities, are destroyed in the process of making alcoholic drinks. Even the "■ ^ stimulating qualities ascribed to alcohol are denied by many, who class it among the narcotics because of its depressant effect. When Game Was Cheap in Kansas. Even as late as 1886 and 1887 veni son was as cheap as beef in the fall, the choicest cuts selling for 12Ya cents a pound, while wild turkeys could be had for 75 cents each when tame tur keys no larger sold for a dollar.

The coach ; mar. had struck. The nurse'had struck. The maid had struck. Everybody had struck, relates the Chicago Record •j Herald. With a sickening fear, the , great inau heard a confused murmur . j outside. It become louder, Increasing ; to a horrible din like unto that pro | dueefi by the Roman mob. He heard j his name shouted above the awful roar, | and, urged by his wife, he at last i ventured to a window, j ' “People.” he cried, “why have you ! struck? What do you want? I have i tried to deal fairly with you. What is j your grievance?” i The coachman, who was acting as ; leader of the crowd, stepped forward, i saying: i “We were ordered out by the head i of the Teamsters’ union.” “What has the Teamsters’ union to do with me or the way my house is run?” "You have a statue of Apollo in yohr hall.” , “Yes. It is one of my choicest pos j sessions'. It is a great work of art. ; I am very proud of it.” j “You must pull it down and have i it thrown out of your house before we can return to work. We have our orders from the president of the Teamsters’ union.” j “This is preposterous. What has my statue of Apollo to do with you l or your duties? And where does the Teamsters’ union come in?” “It seems,” the coachman replied “that Apollo and Phoebus were the same party, and it’s reported on good 1 authority that Phoebus used to be a non-union driver. We’ve got our or ders. We can’t work for a man who 1 tcca u|j <% oifiiuc ui x ocuo, iu the hall." Realizing the force of the argu j ment, the great man yielded. It was the first time strikers had ever caught him unprepared to go on with a new set of hands. MAN WHO WASHES CLOCKS \ . One of a Few Engaged in This Sin gular Business in United States. "I’ve been washing the faces of the city clocks nigh on to ten years. I guess," said a pleasant Scotch-Irish American, according to the New York Post, ‘‘and before that I did it in tha old country. There aren’t many face washers in this land.and the few who know the business do well at it.” He looked prosperous iu his tweed suit and derby hat. "Is your work anything like that of the steeple-climber?” he was asked. "Bless you, no,” he replied, with twinkling eyes, much amused. "Only in one thing, and that is that mostly sailors take up with the trade. That’s because we’re good climbers, you know. I’ve w'ashed the faces of city and church clocks that were 180 feet from the ground, and it took me tw’o and three weeks to do it. I'm a practical clock repairer, too—have to be, you know'—and do my w'ork in a huge wooden cradle made for the purpose. Some clocks get their faces dirty in a year or so; others remain clean ten years, and so on. Old Ben, West minster's great clock, is expected to keep clean 15 years. “In the old days the trade was more dangerous. We used to work from scaffolds and got many dangerous falls Now' wre have the cradles, and all the fixings and comforts, and if a man keeps his head he can work as well a? on the curb. How is the pay? Well, that’s hard to figure, for we work by the job. We don’t cleau clock faces nrinlAf £1A tiro Ol O I/O O fll 1 P H 1 11 tllA summer to last the year around. Of course, sometimes the clocks are taken out of their cases and repaired in the shops. Last year I cleaned 2,000, and visited only two other cities. Chicago and Boston. This year I'll make more because the building operations have grimed the clocks and given our trade an increased demand.” Gases Penetrate Glass. With liquid air performing feats and doing jobs for the scientific and in dustrial worlds, gaseous glass is per haps not amazing. Glass, the renown ed experimentalist, M. Berthelot, has roved permeable to gases at nigh temperature. At. temperatures below its melting point glass has been as sumed impenetrable by oxygen, nitro gen and carbon monoxide and dioxide, but between 5S0 and 800 Centigrade glass tubing has shown itself permea ble. This passage of gases through slightly softened glass is compared to the gaseous exchanges taking place at the ordinary temperatures through the walls of India rubber tubing and the Importance is emphasized of this prop erty of glass hitherto unsuspected in many chemical and physical investiga tions at high temperature.
