The "Sups" and the "Captain"--Somno
Local Reminiscencos.
It does not require any great
originality of thought to advance
the remark that actors, like all other
kinds, classes and conditions, have
their peculiarities. Perhaps cecen
tricities of one kind or another are
better developed in the disciples of
the stock and buskin thani in al y
other strata of the community, save
in the possible exception of these
indescribable anthropophagi who
linger about the portals of leading
newspapers and harass the news
gatherers and mrculders of public
opinion on all possib 0 occasions.
Thore is a general sort of fraterni.
zation among actors and act resses of
all grades, from the varietv artist to
the beetle-browed leading man,
which latter finds it to advantage to
drop his inportaine between and
after acts, as there is much he de
pends upon in his underlings who
can easily mar a good scene or im11
pair his dignity on the boards, a
trick which has not been unfregueint
where the loader has been alllieted
with what is technically called in
stage phrase "swell-heads."
Thus they are to be found banded
together, "theatrical boarding
houses" being as necessary to the
life of a g1cat city as its hotels,
churches and brass bands. Here
"after hours" can be seen "Ludovi,
co" or "Chas. Surface" suffering at
dominos or "Sancho Pedro," at the
hands of a utility or responsible
It is a matter of fact well known,
that no class is so often called upon
to donate their talents to the purn
poses of charity. 3eyond this there
is always some brother or sister in
misfortune whose wants call upon
their purses and it is seldom that.
their appeals are not met, provided
the improvident habits of the charit
ably-disposed historian precludes
him responding as he could wish.
This is a natter of ecnstant every
day occurrence among actors and it
can never be known or told how
much has been given or distrilbutedt
in charity, without reference to the
public affairs in which their services
are given freely and almost invaria
bly at call.
Actors' salaries range very difter
ently ; a good leading ma:n 1or
woman may command from i(0) to
$100, and1(1 thus they range down
ward. Some of the New York
theatres have salary lists which are
terrible to contemplate, and it is
only through long runs, high prices
and full houses that they are en
abled to pull through. The thea
tres in St. Louis have much botter
companies than our citizens have an
idea of. or are willing to think, but
the chief expense is in the dress.
ings of the stage and the setting of
usw' 1plays with costumes, scenery,
proper'ties, etc. But that is rathecr
out of the line of the pr'esenlt arti
clo. Comparatively the best paid
men are those who, possessing som1o
years experience in tihe ranks, have
acquired confidence and a certain
amount of ease, are elevated to tihe
dignity of utility or responsible,
these receiving from fifteen to
twenty dollars per woek, and having
but light labor to p~erformn ; ladies
in the same line receive a trifle

He is the victim of the "captain"

As was said, it affords some who
are "stage-struck" an 0) >ortunity to
start on stage life. This strange
disease not only affects those anxi
ous to adopt the profession but
many who have been on the boards
all their lives. The excitement and
triumphs of thme life havo brought
many to "die with harness on their
backs" and there are many leading
actresses and actors on the stage
to-day who are narrowing the lapse
between themselves and thegr'ave by
following a calling without which
life would have no charmt for

giving it up as a ba:1 job. A laugha

theatres a short time since, when ti
