Last Saturday night, Frederick Clapp, of Jacks-borough, Tennessee, real estate speculator went from Indianapolis to Cincinnati, and put np at the Burnet House. Heleft $1,100 with the cleric, Henry Gates. Gates did not have the safe key, so he kept the money until morning, and then handed it over to a fellow-clerk, Corey, who deposited it In the safe. At noon on Sunday Clapp asked for the package and took out ift). It was then in charge of Baiuford, a third clerk.

He returned the balance of the money to the safe, and says he saw it there lu Wednesday, jut before CInjip demanded safe in Its depository. On Wednesday It mys-" terlously disappeared. A son of the proprietor say, with truth, that more Of her fellows have benefitted by ber than ever served her in any way. How many of our young actreases of to-day will leave as clean a record as Matilda Heron? SaKtuoo avkkoed 1 Authorial Explanation This play not fomu ed on facts that is; but ou facts that ought to was, and wasnt. It is in five acts because it Is a legitimate drama.

It is a moral pUyJttiuidti-lllcxe ain't anything in it about any other fallows wife and nothing about my own. I wrote it all myself because it is an original play ritten in an original way. The President and the Cabinet didut come to see it. They wouldnt have liked it if they had. Authorial Directions Whi'uever this play is played there must be a lone star there wasnt any star at alt at Hooleys.

There must be a 8tar Spangled Banner with very red stripes and a very blue ground a heavenly blue If possible, and the stars must have five points like New York has. Tie other properties are swords, revolvers and more swords and more revohers. Thats all. It ain't expensive to get up. There are only six scenes in every aet.

Every scene must have a window, a low window that the wUCTUin Jump In at. If fts-toa high he has i climb and it spoils the climaxes, which, forthe sake of the dramatic unities, are all alike. There must be an ambassadors Uniform Tor the Bpanish general; and a Scotch plaid dress.orthq Cuban lady. They had them things at Hooleysi If not lu the theatre, they can be hired. The oompauy must contain a villain of the deepest dye, dyspeptic and addicted to Barnes Bittei villain of a lighter hue with a fiendish smile, If he can't eotno it a grin will do.

The ladles mui have blonde wigs, especially the Cuban ones. Thej must have no expression at All, no more than they had at Ilooleys. Expression is the result of bail bringing up. They must Tiave trains to their dresses, which must be cut short in front to show white satin shoes with inverted cones for heels. There must be cork to, black the nigger, and a couple seasons ago.

Lester played Garth but the "hit" of the piece was made by Mr, Fisher as Baretti. Mr. Jack has been starring in the part of John Garth for some time, andjs said to play it quite well. NlcCalmtlnM Lively Hog Mr. McGiunis, of McGinniss Station, at the mouth of Six Mile Canon, has a hog which is a curiosity In more ways than one.

The hug, though iuitvryuupg5tands about three feet aud a half high, aud is as slender as a race horse. It not only haa astonishingly long and slender legr-, but rejoices fn the possession of a snout about half ae long os Us body. It is peculiarly marked, belug black as a coal from Its fore legs to the end of it a nose, while the remainder of its body is snow white. It is a great pet, andTa never so happy as when In the house playing with the children. By running with the cbUdteti and dogs it bos learned to do many things a hg Is seldom seen to do, os to Jump fences and tho like.

The owner guy he has not a fence on his ranch that the Log canmlYkimp. The hog takes great Interest in strangers, and likes to get acquainted with them and have them play with and notice him. A funny thing yesterday Imppeued to a couple of our James Kelly, the soda man, aud Tommy Quinlan, late of the saloon firm of Quinlan A Daley the canon and stopped for a short time McGin-iss place. They saw but little of the hog till they were driving away, and knew nothing of his playful habits. Great was their surprise, therefore, to see the great long-legged, long-nosed beast start after them on a keen galop, but when the creature came up with them and at a single bound landed himself in the rear of the soda wagon our friends thought the beast possessed of a devil, and concluded their time had come.

As the hog landed in the wagon Quinlan landed out, tumbling into a big mud bole, but Mr. Kelly did not dare let go the reins, and so was left alone with the enemy. He opened a rapid Are on the animal with soda bottles, and the playful porker, considering this rather rough treatment, bounded out of the vehicle as gracefully as a greyhound and galloped back to the otxned the safe on tlmt morning, but did not notice wether the package was there. Yates and another clerk were tin present. At oelck On Wednesday night the Covington police arrested an Intoxicated man, who seemed tube of respectability.

His name could not be ascertained. He dtposfted ten dollars as security to appear in tho morning and anaw er to the charge. He carried a bundle in which a coat, and in the lining of the coat the police ind $2,250 sewed up. Upon returning in search jiis bundle, the officers pretended they had not seen it. Ho was asked if ft contained anything of great value, and he replied, "No, only a coat worth $20 or fcJa" The man was permitted to go, and the police kept the coat.

The news of the loss of Clapp's mouey reached the Covington police, and an investigation followed which resulted in the arrest of On his person MSN I HA VE MET. NO. I met him In Washington. I had been reading the "Lbst Days of And he looked to me like the Ediles Umbra in breeches instead of toga, and seemed.

Just so mirh meaner than the Roman parasite as the breeches ie meaner than the dassio robe. Like the i'mbrn he affected bluntness. Like the Umbra he used that affectation to disguise sycophancy. He never agreed with his patrons; but contradicted them always. His skill lay in so shaping dissent as to make it the vehicle of flattery which, uncovered by the blunt manner, would have sickened.

Ho was not tallrnelther was heveiyshor He was erect in body, but his soul ever swinging incense to woo alms which he called friendly, 'obligations. While in spirit he crooked the supple hinges of the knee that thrift might follow fawning, his voice asserted manly independence. He argued to be beaten, and found error in his uiastcrby telling him he was wrong in this or that act because benevolence blinded judgment; and borrowed" ten dollars. Hlmnaii' nor was perfection. It was that of a reckless daredevil who cared for no man and would as lief starve as feast.

He always feasted at the patrons expense. Life is disappointing even to the Successful; he made it hb mission to disdain success in words, but to smooth its disappointments to the Successful for a consideration neer expressed but always had. Perhaps the subtlest stroke of his art was his loudsuouthed acknowledgments of favors received, which laid the foundation for favors to come. 44 1 owe you much," he would say, but me, Im proud to owe such a man another glass of that Sherry." Next day, of course, he would bo prouder still, and owe him more. Whcu the patron's misanthropic mood was ou, it was a oaution to hear his flippancy sneer at virtue in women or princjpie in men moke a jest of all that mankfud revere, and attempt a scoff at all that mankind loves.

A Costigan In beggary, a Skimpole In lustiness, a Bardolph In intern a Pistol in courage. Yet such is the ineffable vacuum of the human heart that his patron found refuge from repining o'er the vanity of human wishes in this man's society, even though he saw through his character as easily as light pierces orystal.

Mr. Owen Marlowe, Mr. Griffiths and Mr. Fiake, having associated themselves Into a firm, have taheu Hooley's Opera House for a short tiire, with the view of trying to establish a light vaudeville and farce theatre, after the model of Mitchell's old Olympic ih New York. Thq enterprise Is a laudable one aud if these gentlemen can find artists equal to themselves In taste, experience and ability, they are not unlikely to succeed.

The great diffi 'ulty they are certain toeucounter will be the finding of actresses who can ac and sing and it Is necesaarythey should do both well. The secret of the later success of Mitchell lay In five people Mary Gannon, Mary Taylor, Constants Clarke, John Nlckinson and Charles Walcott.

Once during the day she remembered having her senses. Then she heard footsteps, and voiceB saying Jim RUeys wife was being sought for.

Some spell that could not be broken impelled her to silence.
