And if you knew that at your death you would not leave a sufficient estate to pay the funeral expenses and provide for the temporary needs of your dependents , you wouldn t die happy , would you ? Of course not . Well , this is not a pleasant subject , and unfortunately none of us know when we are going to pass away , but just the same , each one of us WILL die , some time . Supposing , though , you DID know you were going to die today , and someone came to you and told you for a $ 10 s bill they would provide $ 1 , 000 for your dependents immediately upon your death . You would consider that person a benefactor and a mighty good friend , wouldnt you ? Certainly you would . But of course you re not going to die today and you hope , and we hope , that you will live to a ripe old age . But is that a...

VAN HOVENS SCREED SHEFFIELD , ENGLAND , October 31 , 1920 . Editor VAUDEVILLE NEWS , New York City , U . S . A . Dear Sir : Ive been in England and on the Continent now . for over five years and am booked for the biggest part of seven more . It all sounds like a fairy tale , but it s true . As for acts intending coming over here , all I can say is to have something new and if someone over here makes a hit in your line , don t jump all over them . You re simply too late . For once in over here , the number two hasnt a chance . The country is so small that your act is seen in so many places in so short a time that they want you back again and again , and refuse to have anybody else in your line , and you grow new to them instead of old . But if you have an act on your own , come over . Now listen . The trains are little ones compared to ours , but for speed , we are snails in comparison . They do everything but leave the rails . They nearly fly . The carriages are wonderful while the ...

Vaudeville performers carry with them their musical accompaniments , usually scrawled with a pen and interpolated from beginning to end with directions to the conductor . A real legible one looks as if ? cat had been walking on- it with ink on its paws—and how , in the name of Allah , Oswald Richter or anybody else can make ? nything out of it is a question for the intellectuals .
