It is the very nature of their environment , the constant friction upon nerve and temperament , that tends to make the vaudeville artists , more so than any other group of professionals , grouch-inclined and ever ready for trouble . Because they are . strangers , among strange people , the old aboriginal instinct , which still endures from the days of primitive ! man...
