At that time eight or tein plaiys were produced in a single week, and one rehearsal was considered suflicient for each play. I was cast for a small villain's part in u drama called " Peod lar's Acre." I had to be stabbed in a front scene by the heavy man, curse him, and fall dead. Two supern were to enter from the O.P. side, raise and carry me off, the heavy man remaining on to declaim a speech before the change of scene. Now, if there was osae thing our heavy man loved, it was a solo speech-to have all thie stage to himself. Night came, I rc. ceived my stab, spoke my curse, and fcil dead. l'ause. Not a sign of a super. Still ai* lence. I opened one eye. There stood the hleavy zmaon glaring at me, with his back to the publio. "Go off, you fool," he whispered, "go off; I've got a speech."
