"The practice of appearing before
the curtain and giving m talk in re
sponse to enrtain calls ia fast playing
out," said t. well-known theater goer
after the show last Tuesday night."
As Mr. Murphy said in hie curtain
speech tonigbt. many of the leading
at tors have abandoned the custom,
because tney assert that it spoils the
effect upon an audience for an actor
to step out of a character which he has
been portraying and assume another
one foreign to the cast during the
progress of a play. Many of our beat
actors have taaen this view. Among
them I may mention Mansfield, Otis
Skinner, Win. H. Crane. James
O'Neill and others. Stilt, there are
those who have not bowed to the idea,
chief among them being that grand old
comedian and patriarch of the stage,
Joseph Jefferson, who holds that the
chief purpose of an actor is to please
his audience, and if his audience pays
him the compliment to manifest a de
sire to hear him speak the actor should
nffinrln in trmir wishes I heard Jcifer-
nnn n Hhnrt time aeo deliver one of

h answored the new creed most com-
nlHtftlv. For rnv cart. I think if Joe
Jfifferson can still make curtain talks,
rh lPHSHr lichrs can well afford to
follow his example. Mr. Murphy lost
nothing bv his little tala before the
curtain tonight, for everyone thoroughly
He Swallowed It.
A wel'-known young man who clerks
in a leading Seventh street estaDiisn
ment, had occasion the other day to go
over to the Circuit Court Clerk a office
in the court house to transact some
business. When he entered the room
he found several young ladies from
various parts of the country, who were
taking a teacner s examinuiiou. .Do
ing an acquaintance of one of them,
he struck uo a conversation with her.
On entering the room, not expecting
to meet anv voung ladies, the young
clnrir had neglected to remove from
his mouth a piece of tobacco, which he
had hen industriouslv chewing. He
mesentlv found himself in a dilemma.
He had more "juice" on hand than he
could well take care of, and talking was
hficominar more difficult every second
He would not have had the young lady
to know he chewed tobacco for any
thing. But something had to be done ;
the, situstion was becoming really
critical " Finally in sheer desperation,
nd as a last resort, he nerved himself
to the act and swallowed tooacco, juice
and all. Half an hour later there was
"something doing" in a ve-y sick
room and the young clerk wore a
Cassius-like paleness nearly all the next
Tennessee and Heaven. ''
Tim Murphy, the comedian, in his
curtain tala at the Opera House Tues
day night told a capital story, exceed
ingly appropriate, which had for it
purpose a graceful tribute to the people
of his audience. Mr. Murphy said
that a man in another state died and
went to neaven. He was being shown
over the new Jerusalem by a guile
directly after his arrival and was im
pressed with the satisfaction of every
one there with their surroundings.
"Everyone seems to be perfectly hap
py and contented," said the new arri
val as he cast bis eye here and there
over the people. Finally they came
upon a man who was bound hard and
fast with immense iron chains
"What have yon got that man chained
for?" asked the new arrival. "Oh,
that fellow? Why, he's from Tennes
see, and he wants to go bacn, ' said
the guide. It was such a pleasing
story that the audience cheered Mr.
Murphy very enthusiastically.
