"The season of Mr. .Mfivys Wal lace, in 'The Impetuous l'rmve,' ter minates November $!!). Members of this coin puny will kindly return their parts to the stage manager. "ACTON SMITH, "Business Manager, "(for) lliciiiiNBOTiiAM, DAVIS & Co., INC." "Beastly—absolutely beastlysaid Percival Parent, when lie saw the customary "two weeks' notice" on the call-board. "By Jove! This is the third frost I've encountered in a single season. 1 thought this one would pull through. It's rotten For some time he smoked in si lence. His pipe went out but there was a problem solved. He rose, went over to his steamer trunk, opened it and drew out half a-dozen photographs. They were photographs of the fair sex—nation ality American. "Let me see," he said. "There's Gwendolyn Sears—father, manufac tures motor tires—quite wealthy. Yet she giggles so. I couldn't stand that, I don't think—no. "Next we have Margaret Banks— but her dad's a broker. That's too deuced uncertain—may go broke any day—so we'll pass her up. "Ah Grace Campbell Scotch descent—very wealthy—very decent family, with the exception of her mother. I fancy 1 could overcome mother's objections. Yes, it'll be Grace Campbell, Percy, old ehap. You're like the advertisements in the paper—you come under the head of the 'personals'—with 'object matri mony' at the finish." Mr. Percival Parent laughed, smoked another pipe of shag and went to bed. "Beastly bother—these 'phones—I wonder what the deuce this is. Hello. Oh, how are you, old chap. Yes, come right up. Good-by." Mr. Percival Parent returned to his interrupted task of tying his white full-dress tie—before the mir ror, of course—where else A month had passed since that marital solilo quy and the pipe of shag. A knock, came at the door. "Come in," he called. A short, sandy-haired man rushed over the threshold. His check suit fairly howled "Bond street—Lon don." The rest of his clothes clashed artistically. "Well, well, Percy, you old rotter. Where the bally deuce have you been Not a sign of you on the street or at the club. I knew your engagement with Wallace was over, so I've had my eye open for you! I've got it this time—beautiful part. The 'star' is new. But the play's by one of the best men on this side. Seventh-five a week it's worth. Spoke to the author last night. He thought you were just the man. Come round to the club, wer'11 talk it over." Percival Parent bestowed upon his friend a look of distant pity and gave him the benefit of his most languid tones: "Sorry, old chap, I can't accept." "Can't accept! For heaven's sake— what's up? Not going into trade?" "Perhaps—later but I think I'll try matrimony." "The deuae you say! Who's the girl?" "It's not official yet—so I can't say. I think, though, it'll come to a head shortly—perhaps tonight. 'Fa ther fretted' a bit, and 'mother fumed.' But the girl has a will of her own. I flatter myself I hold a winning hand." He of the check suit gave vent to a long whistle. "You always were a lucky beggar, Percy. You've got a long head—a long head." "Thanks. Would you mind hold ing my coat, old man? Thanks. Which do you prefer for buttonhole —a gardenia or a white orchid "Deuced expensive, orchids—eh?" "Oh, hang that—I want to look my best. An orchid it shall be, then. Good-night." He of the check suit left for the club. Percival followed a little later— after a glance in the mirror at the tout ensemble. His destination w«u the Fifth avenue residence of Mise Grace Campbell. Mr. Percival Parent awoke the next day at about 1:00,p. m. Hie head felt very queer. There seemed to be many clouds floating through his brain. He sat up in tied. His head felt worse—so he lay back cm the pillow again. "Oh, yes—1 see." he said to him «elf. "Last niiihr at-the i-lub. Old Bill ipenei lottli .lid Lake. So did several other vhaps. 1 hen I loosened up. Then they all roared, "For he's a jollv good fel low,' and toasted me as the future partner of old Angus Campbell, the copper magnate. Then there was some more rot, and Old Billy took me home in a taxi. Oh, yes, I re member—hallo!" There was a sharp rap on the door. A very tousled-looking, pajama-clad Percival opened it. The bellboy handed him a letter. He knew the handwriting. It was from Grace Campbell. "Dear, dear, the poor girl's got it bad. Left her last night at eleven thirtv. Everything arranged. Wed ding in April. Honeymoon in Eu rope. Four months' tour of France by motor. What the deuce is .she writing so soon for?" He stilled a yawn, went over to the window and tore open the envelope. He read the letter. He read it again. He read it a third and a fourth time. Then he laid it down. He went into the bathroom and turned on the water in the tub—the cold water. Something was wrong with his eyes or his brain. A cold tub would pull him together. He dressed completely before read ing the letter again. There was no mistake—the words were there—in plain English. Yet he read them aloud to make sure: "My Dear Mr. Parent: "Don't ask me to explain. Let us forget it all. Pardon my abruptness. But it is my wish that the engage ment be broken. "Very sincerely, "GRACE CAMI-BICLL." Percy didn't like the sound of his own voice at that particular moment. For once in his life he wasn't acting, («race Campbell had "called it off." Why In vain he tried to think of some thing lie had done—some reason for her action. He could find none. "What will they say—the chaps at the club? 1, like a silly ass, told them all about it. It'll be in the pa pers. They'll have the laugh on me. I'll see her. It'll be all right. It'll go through yet. By Jove—it must go through. Percy, in morning coat, "topper," stick, monocle and all, called at the Fifth avenue residence of Miss Grace Campbell. He was informed by the stony-faced butler that the lady in question had left town. "When would she return He couldn't say." For three days he called every aft ernoon. Also he telephoned. Noth ing came of it. Then he wrote Miss Campbell a letter—a long letter— well worded—guaranteed to soften the hardest heart—so he thought. Then he waited for a reply. Things happened. There was a de nial by Angus Campbell in the pa pers. It was most emphatic. A week passed—a week of at tempted nonchalance—a week of ago nizing anxiety. At last a letter came—postmarked Palm Beach. He ripped open the envelope. He read the letter through. His mon ocle dropped from his eye. Miss Campbell wrote a firm hand. She came to the point. Percy didn't read the letter aloud —thus it ran "My Dear Mr. Parent: "Since you so earnestly ask for an explanation (your letter was a masterpiece of earnestness), I will give you one. "I consented to be your wife—you seemed sincere. "We were alone in the parlor. You held out your arms to me and I fell into your embrace. "Something, I don't know what it was—perhaps the spirit of one of my Revolutionary ancestors—made me look over your shoulder. "Of course you remember that you faced a long mirror—Did it occur to you that there was also one behind you? "I saw my own reflected face at an angle—I saw yours. "You held me in your arms a mo ment and then you winked at yourself in the glass. "Sincerely yours, "GRACE CAMPBELL.** The next morning Percival Par ent received a Bill from the cashier of his hotel, for "broken mirror—one dollar." ,t' (Copyright) GOOD WORK OF HATCHERIES Siliiorss of Various Kinds of PrcoagAted and Distributed In the Last Year. 1 ho fish cultural stations of Uncle Sani's bureau of fisheries propagated and distributed 4,000, 000,000 of tisli in the year ending June i0. Mall' a bil-ion were mi gratory loud iishes of the Atlantic coast streams, a billififi the com mercial fishes of the great lakes, two and a van er bi!:ion the food fishes of the North Atlantic coast and the others salmon of the Pa cific seaiioard and fishes of the smaller interior waters. Ninety eight per cent were commercial food fishes hatched from .-ggs, which would have been lost but for the hatcheries. Staggering totals these, but mean ing much more than mere figures to the people staggering under the in creasing cost of living. The advice of Chairman Lever of the house com mittee on agriculture is worthy of thought in this connection. "Eat fish" is his proffered solution. Peo ple might as well begin now, he says, to learn that they must eat fish, poultry, fruit and vegetables instead of depending so much upon beef. If his advice is followed, whether from reasoning or necessity, the ultimate consumer will have reason to he thankful for the activities of the bureau of fisheries for the plenitude of fish. It has faithfully kept track of the run of fish in all the waters, has replenished and stocked the lakes, streams and waters, rearing to the fingerling and yearling stages many millions formerly distributed as fry and conserving and increasing this reserve food against the soaring of meat prices to prohibitive pin nacles.—1'tica Globe. HE KNEW 'EM The 'Pugilist.—Do you think I'd get the money if 1 made a profes sional tour of Ireland? The Manager—No you wouldn't have any spectators. They'd all want to be in the ring. COMMA MAKES TROUBLE A comma in a new law of the British parliament has caused a curi ous dispute between the miners of the Llanerch collieries, Monmouth shire, and their employers. Under a clause in the mines act, the men balloted on the question of pithead baths being supplied, the result be ing For, 1,009 against, 598 ma jority for, 411. The employers con tend that the majority should be two-third* of the men voting, but the men say the act provides that two-thirds of the men employed must vote, a bare majority being sufficient to decide the question. The issue turns on a comma in the clause of the act. RESTRICTED. Lar.dlord—So you're going to va cate my flat. What's the trouble Tenant—Entirely too cramped. We can. use nothing but condensed milk, must raise our flowers in a folding bed aud have had to take the pendulum off the clock. EXCUSE ME! Bank Clerk—Madam, may I see your stubs? Spinster (haughtily)—Excuse me, sir, I don't smoke. CUMULATIVE. "So Jaggsby gave a stag dinner, did he?" "It was more than stag—it was staggering." HAS TO.
