"An' 'ore's a pipe; p'raps you might And a job in tho adver-Usc-monts," she suggested. "Good-night, Mr. Smith." "You're a 'brick," I said—and she'd been too kind to me to let mo feel shamed at my husky voice. "I'll pay somehow—or I'll go. But I'll never forget, Mrs. Knoyle. The thirty shil lings I owe you shall he a first charge on what I earn." Thirty shillings! The sum meas ures things up. :The gutter was very close.

COMEDY AND TRAGEDY. Come now to the actor's everyday life. It you are a comedian you can't get any sympathy. Ever hear two men discussing the illness or a co median? Jones will say, "I hear Jack Cannot has "appendicitis." "You don't say," grius Brown. And then they both burst out laughing. If an actor happens to be a tragedian It Is the other way about. Every happy little episode in his life is referred to with bated breath. "Did you hear about II. B. Irving winning a thousand at tlie ponies?" Smith will say. "Dear me," Robinson will reply; and they will look as if they had been asked to have a last look at the body before the lid is screwed down.—Fred Nlblo on the disadvantages of being an ac tor, in "Theatre Magazine."

Off To Paris ! CROSSING THIS CHANNEL—SOMIS GUMl'SIvS OF RURAI, FRANCIS. BY P. If. SUI.MVAN, IN TUB "MKMlOUNti ADVOCATE." Tlie trip across the English Chan-. nel occupied four and a half hours, j aiul I cau safely say that it broke down the constitution of many a brave heart ! No pen cau do justice to the suffering entailed by the rol ling motion of the vessel. After a severe tossing about, and sundry bumps and bruises, there was a sud den lull, and we caught a glimpse of the harbour lights of Dieppe, on the coast of France. At 3.30 a.m. our frollicking little ship was along side the wharf. There was nothing very remarkable at Dieppe, barring the cold and the Custom-house offi cials. We had to toe the mark, and wait our turn to pass the Customs officers, an easy-going body ; of Frenchmen. Dieppe is said to be a quaint old town. In far-off days it was under the sway of the English kings, and is now considered a half way house between London and Paris. Like Monte Carlo. Dieppe has its ...

£f iWAONSB'fl PERSONALITY. j Something of tlio complex person ility of Warner in ay bo gathered from an article by Mr. Krnesb Nowman in the "Contemporary .Review."

During a groat port of his life the word* most frequently on his lips wore 'renunciation' and 'resignation.' No man had oyer less understanding of the real meanings of the words. 'JUus shy apostle of renunciation and resignation could not bear to live anywhere but in the vory centre of the limolight. It b not a personality that one can wholly like, but of the power and fascination of it there can be no question.
